Some interesting character news from the “Star Wars: the Force Awakens”…

Since today is Star Wars day, I thought it be cool to give you some interesting Star Wars news in the upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” coming out in Dec.

First off, who is “Game of Thrones” star Gwendoline Christie is playing? Well, Gwendoline’s character is gonna be Captain Phasma, who is that armored stormtrooper with that large gun you see in the second trailer. So Gwendoline’s character was seen in the trailer. Pretty cool. Gwendoline was heavily armored as Brienne Maid of Tarth in “Games of Thrones” and looks like she’s gonna be heavily armored again in Star Wars.

In this article you can see Adam Driver as Kylo Ren unmasked and they reveal who Lupita Nyongo will be playing. Lupita will be playing a CGI character named, Maz Kanata.

For some reason though, they are not letting us see Luke Skywalker yet. Wonder why JJ is being secretive on Luke? There’s gotta be some deep story with Luke that we don’t know about yet. I’d like to see the new Leia too.

I really can’t wait for “The Force Awakens” like most people, though.

Mark Hamill admits to being a little skeptical of JJ doing Star Wars 7 “The Force Awakens”…

Pretty interesting. Mark Hamill is just like most of Star Wars fans. He at first was a little skeptical of JJ directing Star Wars. He was a little “cautious” about it but then Hamill admits he jumped aboard the Star Wars 7 cast ’cause he was afraid that the die-hards would get angry at him and would probably protest if he said “No”.

I agree that would happen if Mark Hamill said no to returning. I mean, look at what Billy Dee Williams is going through. Billy Dee is not playing Lando in “The Force Awakens” and a lot of fans are upset about it. That is probably why Harrison and Carrie had to jump aboard the film as well to avoid an angry mob of fans. Everyone was expecting a Star Wars reunion. They got everybody except for Billy Dee obviously. Who knows, maybe Billy Dee still has a surprising cameo appearance in “The Force Awakens” though… we’ll have to wait and see. JJ is always full of surprises and secrets.

Luke Skywalker is probably not gonna be in “The Force Awakens” that much but at least he’ll be in it. It’s looking like that Han Solo is gonna get the most screen time for “The Force Awakens”.

I can’t wait for this film, though. I hope this will be the “Star Wars” film that we all can walk out of the theaters with huge smiles on our faces this time. I’m sure that will happen.

Not a lotof people are talking about John Williams score in “The Force Awakens” trailer…

How about that score by John Williams in the new “Star Wars” trailer, hey?

Yes, in the opening of the trailer when it shows the wrecked Star Destroyer… you hear the old music from “A New Hope” but the rest of the trailer is all new music composed by John Williams.

I think it was the music of John Williams who helped get fans pumped up for the next film. Without the music of John Williams, then the trailer would have been less-interesting.

I’m just posting the trailer again ’cause it’s fuckin’ badass. I’ll admit that I was skeptical of JJ doing this film at first but now I think it’s gonna be great. Star Wars fanatics should be happy with this one.

2nd trailer of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is here and it gave me goosebumps!!! WOW!!!!

I’m blown away by this trailer. The trailer was very well done and this is HOW you make a movie trailer. I figure this trailer will get Star Wars fans pumped up and they did a good job doing just that.

Luke Skywalker does appear in the trailer, he’s the one with the mechanical hand touching R2D2 and Mark Hamill is obviously doing the voice overs. Princess Leia does appear in the trailer but you can’t see her face. Leia is seen handing someone a light saber. When Leia hands someone a light saber, did you noticed a ring on her finger? Is she and Han Solo married in this movie? That’s what it’s looking like to me. Who is Leia handing the light saber to?

Seeing Han Solo finally is fucking badass as well! Predictably Han Solo still looks the same except he’s much older now obviously.

As expected, this looks to be an action-packed Star Wars movie that would get fans jumping up and down on their seats excitedly feeling like a little kid again.

I’m blown away with the trailer. I’m sure we will see much more in Trailer #3. I’m sure they’ll let us see Luke’s and Leia’s face in the next one.

Will we see Luke Skywalker back in light saber action? I’m almost positive we will see Luke swinging the light saber around again ’cause fans will be disappointed if we don’t see Luke in action again. I’m sure it’s gonna be Luke vs. Kylo Ren at the end of the film.

I can’t fucking wait though! I’m definitely gonna try to see this on opening day.

Harrison is 72, y’all, I don’t think he can do his own stunts anymore!!!!

I understand how those are mad that Disney/Lucasfilm are moving on without Harrison Ford as Indy but keep in mind that the man is 72 now. I don’t think he has what it takes to play action scenes anymore. I think Harrison is pretty much done playing action movies. Just about anyways.

When he did “The Expendables 3”, Harrison had some action scenes but there was nothing that involved anything physical. All Harrison did was fly around in a helicopter. He didn’t do any running or punching. I’m sure he won’t do much of his own stunts in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” either ’cause remember he got himself hurt trying to get on the Millennium Falcon. I don’t think you’ll see Harrison do too much physical stuff in Star Wars 7. He’s probably gonna be flying the Falcon for most of the movie anyways, I betcha.

Again, I understand why people are mad that Harrison may not be playing Indy anymore but keep in mind he is 72. It’s about time for him to move on and I’m sure Disney got his blessing anyways.

Soon, I’m sure Harrison will speak out on why he’s not in the new Indy film.

How much do you wanna bet that Harrison said no and turned it down? Maybe his age has nothing to do with turning down Indy. Maybe he felt that he can’t do it without George and Steve, ya know what I mean? It wouldn’t make sense to have Harrison as Indy when Steve is not directing and George is not in charge of the story, ya know? I’d say it’s actually a good idea not to have Harrison in when George and Steve are not involved. We’ll wait to see what Harrison himself says.

Sure, I’m a little disappointed too that Harrison is not gonna be involved it looks like but hey… it’s Hollywood. That’s the way it goes.

Disney wants Chris Pratt to play Indiana Jones for reboot and I’m actually okay with that!

I’m all for an Indy reboot as long as they keep the stories original and not make them a “remake” of the original series, ya know? I was hoping for an Indy 5 with Harrison still playing Indy but it’s understandable he can’t play the role anymore ’cause of his age, ya know? Harrison is 72 and I can’t seem him running around with a whip trying to fight the Nazis.

I’m a huge Indiana Jones fan… always have been.

Remember, George Lucas sold the rights of Lucasfilm to Disney so this gives Disney the right to make any Lucasfilm based movies all they want to that includes Indy so Steven Spielberg must be okay with Disney doing this too.

http://deadline.com/2015/01/chris-pratt-indiana-jones-guardians-of-the-galaxy-disney-1201360637/

I’m a huge fan of the Indy movies. I love all 4 of ’em (Yes, I thought “Crystal Skull” was great so suck it, haters). Hopefully they do a good job with this too. As long as this won’t be a complete remake of “Raiders”, I’m okay with that.

Who knows though, maybe Harrison will still star in this new film. Maybe Indy (played by Harrison) will pass the whip to a younger archaeologist (Chris Pratt). We’ll wait and see, though.

I don’t see Steven Spielberg directing the next Indy film. Spielberg won’t do it without George being in charge.

So why Billy Dee Williams reprising his role as Lando for “Rebels” animated series instead of “The Force Awakens”???

Star Wars fanatics begged for the return of Lando Calrissian played by Billy Dee Williams for the “Force Awakens” live action movie directed by JJ Abrams but fans were disappointed that they learned that Disney neglected Billy Dee. So far, there was no explanation from Disney/JJ camp as to why Billy Dee wasn’t brought back to play Lando for “The Force Awakens” film. Even Billy Dee himself didn’t explain.

Turns out that Billy Dee have agreed to return to his iconic role as Lando for the “Rebels” animated TV series instead.

A lot of fans are questioning this move.

I think I know why this is ’cause after doing a little google search, I learned that Billy Dee pulled out of “Dancing With the Stars” ’cause he had major back problems.

http://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/billy-dee-williams-leaves-dancing-with-the-stars-medical-reasons-2014313

So I thought to myself…. maybe that’s why. It’s looking like Billy Dee can’t do live action movies anymore ’cause of his bad back so that’s why he agreed to do the animated version of Lando instead. This was just Disney/Lucasfilm’s way of letting fans know that Lando isn’t being ignored as a way to keep them happy.

Hell, maybe Billy Dee not being in the “Force Awakens” had nothing to do with his bad back? Maybe JJ just didn’t have a storyline for Lando so he wasn’t written in the script at all. Maybe Lando wasn’t needed?

I’m sure we’ll get an answer soon on the real reason why Lando is not in “The Force Awakens” once these guys start doing interviews for the press to help promote the movie and the “Rebels” TV series.

Sorry but I’m with everyone that a live action Star Wars movie without Lando, there’s something wrong there. Maybe Lando still has a surprise cameo in “The Force Awakens”, who knows??? JJ is always up for surprises.

I’m not surprised that “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” would be the most anticipated film of 2015…

I’ll admit that “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is one of those films that I most look forward to in 2015. Sucks we have to wait until all the way ’til next Dec. to see it, though. I really hope JJ doesn’t let us down and hopes he gives us a good Star Wars movie.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/star-wars-named-fandangos-anticipated-760572?facebook_20141230

As for all the other films, honestly, I’m actually looking forward to “Fifty Shades of Grey” too. The more I see the trailer, the more it looks interesting to me so I’m probably gonna see that one. I’m probably gonna go see “Jurassic World”, “Mockingjay 2”, “Fast and Furious 7”, “MI: 5”, “Avengers 2”, “Spectre”, etc.

I’m surprised “Terminator 5” isn’t listed anywhere. Not sure if I’m gonna go see the new “Terminator” film or not. Thinking about it.

Yep, 2015 looks to be a pretty huge year for movies.

Hopefully Star Wars 7 will be worth the wait.

Chewbacca revealed in latest “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” charity video…

JJ has been doing a lot of charity work for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and he just released a new video, thanking fans for taking part in Unicef. Here is the cast and crew saying “thank you”.

Chewbacca is revealed with Peter Mayhew in costume and all. Even if Episode 7 is taken place 35 years after Jedi, Chewie still looks the same, he hasn’t aged a bit. Chewie still looks good, though.

Still though, JJ won’t show Harrison, Mark and Carrie… I don’t see any of them in this video, do you??? Why is JJ being secretive on the original trio? He probably doesn’t wanna give away too much this soon.

Kylo Ren is the name of Adam Driver’s villain character???

JJ Abrams revealed the character names from the teaser using virtual collector’s cards. Look like the name of the main villain for Episode VII is Kylo Ren who is a Sith… he might be Adam Driver’s villain character. I’m predicting that’s who it may be.

http://www.comingsoon.net/movies/news/391555-names-of-the-star-wars-the-force-awakens-characters-revealed#/slide/3

Cool stuff.

I hope in the next trailer will show Han, Chewie, Leia, Luke and the two droids. I’m sure they will.
