Harrison Ford says he enjoyed watching “The Force Awakens” early screening…

I’m pretty sure Harrison never watched himself in the original Star Wars trilogy when they first came out in theater but Harrison said he saw an early screening of “The Force Awakens” and said that he loved it. When Harrison said he loves it, I think he really meant it not because he’s in it. Of course, you would think that actors would love their own movies that they star in but not always. If Harrison says it’s good then it probably is good. He wouldn’t have done the movie at all if he knew it wasn’t good.

Even though he saw “The Force Awakens” first before the rest of us, he won’t say whether or not Han Solo and Leia are married (I’m sure they are).

It’s also nice to hear that Harrison is still interested in playing Indiana Jones again even though he didn’t confirm the role yet.

There’s a lot of people in social networking criticizing Harrison and they are saying stuff about Harrison getting onto to this movie for the money. Well, if you listen to Harrison toward the end of the interview when talking about Indiana Jones, Harrison made it perfectly clear that he’s not about the money. He was never about the money when making movies ’cause he’s probably in it for the passion, ya know? Acting is what he loves doing. He’s made plenty of movies over the years where he didn’t get paid much and made movies that bombed in the box office so there’s proof that he’s not about the money at all. Once again, acting is his passion and it’s what he loves to do.

Only thing though, Harrison is talking like that Han Solo might get killed off, you can see it in his eyes that something might happen to Solo. He tried to get George Lucas to kill Han Solo off in “Return of the Jedi” but they might be using that idea for “The Force Awakens”. Will Han Solo die in “The Force Awakens”? We’ll have to wait and see. The internet better not spoil the movie for all of us if he does die, though ’cause I’m feeling those spoilers will be all over the place. *sigh*

Carrie Fisher pressured to lose weight for “The Force Awakens” movie…

Carrie Fisher just made a confession that the crew behind “The Force Awakens” movie pressured her to lose weight so she can reprise her role as Princess Leia (or General Leia, just read that she’ll be a General now).

I’m sure the only reason Carrie agreed to take their request and lose the pounds is ’cause she didn’t want to lose the role. If she refused to lose the weight, they probably would have fired her. Back when she was young, she used to be really beautiful and gorgeous but she changed over the years as she got older. They wanted her to lose the weight so Leia can look young and beautiful again.

I can’t blame the crew though ’cause nobody wants to see Leia being a fat cow, ya know? They just wanted to make her appearance in the film right.

Can’t wait for the movie, though. It comes out in a couple of weeks!

Spoilers could be a huge problem for “The Force Awakens” beware…

People maybe getting mad at spoilers from your favorite TV shows like “Game of Thrones” and “The Walking Dead” but beware, spoilers for “The Force Awakens” could get a lot worse. If you want to avoid spoilers as best as possible for “The Force Awakens” avoid reading reviews, avoid reading comments sections of the Star Wars facebook page, avoid reading the comments sections in blogs and forums talking about the movie. You get the deal. Even worse, your facebook newsfeeds could be full of them which will be harder to avoid. I know when people go see “The Force Awakens”, people are going to want to talk about the story for sure. Nothing wrong with talking about the story of films but try to put a “spoiler warning” and then that will make it easier for people to decide whether they want to read it or not. A lot of people don’t care to put “spoiler warnings” these days. I do it all the time on my blogs. It’s pretty easy to do.

Princess Leia of “The Force Awakens” is my favorite character poster out of them all!

If you seen the recent photos of Carrie Fisher lately, you can see that she is aging. Carrie Fisher looks nothing like the young Princess Leia from the original trilogy. I’ll have to say that the film makers did one helluva job making Carrie look like Princess Leia again which I’m pretty sure was a big challenge for them to do due to her aging and gaining a little weight over the years. I bet it took them hours to make her look like Princess Leia again. It probably took them a lot of makeup and hairstylist work for sure in order to get her look right. Carrie’s look changed over the years as she got older but she now looks like Leia again as she did in the original trilogy.

I’m sure Carrie still has the acting chops too and I’m sure she can still play the Leia role well. She hasn’t played the role in many many years so I’m sure she had to practice her lines a lot to get the character right again. Carrie doesn’t work in Hollywood that much. She was just a co-star and did cameos in many other movies over the years so I’m sure she’s not used to playing in huge roles like this. Leia maybe older in “The Force Awakens” but I’m sure she’ll still be the same Leia from the original trilogy.

Oh yeah, some people are still wondering why there’s no Luke in the new character posters. Well, I still believe Luke is none other than Kyle Ren ’cause there’s plenty of rumors that Luke went to the dark side. Even Mark said that he pitched the idea to George Lucas that Luke should go to the dark side a long time ago but it looks like George wouldn’t go for the idea and it’s looking like JJ Abrams took the idea himself. Yep, I believe Luke Skywalker is Kylo Ren. So when people claim that Luke is missing from the posters and trailers… he wasn’t missing at all ’cause he was Kylo Ren after all this time. I’m betting your money on it, folks.

Will “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” keep the opening crawl theme and rolling credits theme??? Yes, they probably will…

Some of you may ask, will JJ keep the opening theme and the rolling credits theme as you hear in these videos below? You hear them on every Star Wars movie, even the prequels. So yeah, I think we’ll definitely get the same opening theme song for the famous crawl and the same music for the end credits like always.

I’m sure it’ll be like this for the next trilogy.

I’m not sure if Disney plans on using these two theme songs for spin off movies, though. These theme songs were made for the original series, I would assume.

Yeah, John Williams did the score for the rest of “The Force Awakens” too and I’m sure he’ll kill it like always.

Of course, they will keep these two theme songs. They have to. They always start and end like that. If JJ changed the music for the opening and end credits, that would anger a lot of Star Wars fans so he have to keep them in the film.

Why are people so surprised of all the secrecy in JJ’s “SW: The Force Awakens”, I’m not surprise at all…

I’m seeing  a lot of Star Wars fans how they are so impressed with all the secrecy in the Star Wars trailers on how they didn’t reveal much of anything. Why are you surprised? I’m not at all.

I’ve seen most of JJ’s work over the years including the TV show “LOST”. I’ve also seen all of JJ’s films that he’s directed and produced over the years. All the movies that he’s directed or produced, anything that JJ is involved, you can expect a lot of secrecy before the movie comes out. Why? He has always been a pretty secretive guy with all of his movies everything from “Super 8”, “MI: III”, the two Star Trek films, “Cloverfield”, etc.

He just never liked to reveal a lot before the movie comes out. He’s the same way with all of his TV shows too. This is how he has always been.

Which is great that he does this ’cause most film makers in Hollywood reveal a bit too much before the film comes out these days.

There are only very few directors these days who are secretive on his movies… those guys are JJ Abrams and Christopher Nolan. Chris Nolan is also full of secrecy with his movies as well. Steven Spielberg is another one.

Yeah, I too hate movie trailers that show the whole movie but JJ does a great job of not doing that. He’s the best at making movie trailers for sure, he always has been.

If you’re planning to see “The Force Awakens” on opening day or opening weekend, better order your tickets now ’cause all the theaters will probably be sold out quick. It’s gonna be a big movie and the theaters will be packed for sure so get ready for the long lines if you think you can handle it.

Will I see it opening weekend? I’m not sure yet. I think it’s better for me to see it sometime after Christmas and wait for the crowds to calm down. I don’t really enjoy going to the movie theater that is full of people. That’s why I prefer going during the day when there’s not a lot of people. I like watching movies when there’s not a lot of noise.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” promotes white-genocide? Seriously? Are people on drugs or what?

A hashtag about Star Wars made a trending topic on twitter today. The hashtag was #BoycotStarWars7 and what was the hashtag for? It’s basically ’cause of the diversity of the cast. For that reason alone, they claim that the film is too anti-white.

More here:

http://www.gossipcop.com/star-wars-boycott-episode-7-anti-white-twitter-trend-force-awakens/

I would think the hashtag started was a direct attack against actor John Boyega… the guy wearing the Storm Trooper suit in the trailers.

Well I find this all pretty ludicrous. A diverse cast in Star Wars is nothing new. A diverse cast goes way back even to the original trilogy. The voice of Darth Vader who is none other than James Earl Jones is black. Lando Calrissian who was played by Billy Dee Williams is black. Mace Windu who was played by Samuel L. Jackson in the prequels is black. So the original trilogy and the prequels weren’t all just white actors.

If you watch the original trilogy and the prequels you would see actors and actresses in all different kinds of races which also includes Asian actors as co-stars.

George has always been diverse in his casting over the years.

Whoever started that hashtag on twitter is probably a racist against black people ’cause this person was bothered that John Boyega was all over the trailers.

I’m tired of people calling everything “racist” these days. When will it end?

I won’t boycott Star Wars “The Force Awakens” and I am a white guy myself. I’ll proudly go see the movie myself and I’m looking forward to it. I like the diverse cast and if people have a problem with it… fuck off.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” official poster is finally out…

Great poster. While it is a great poster, there’s still no Luke Skywalker. How come Luke is not on the poster? Why all the secrecy toward Luke? I guess we’ll have to wait and find out for ourselves when we see the film in a few months. Hopefully, they show Luke in the new trailer tomorrow ’cause like it says here… a new trailer of “The Force Awakens” will get aired during “Monday Night Football”. I’m sure the new trailer will get put online after the game. Yes, you can see Carrie Fisher aka Princess Leia on the photo but no Luke.

Can’t wait for this film. I’m looking forward to it too.

Colin Trevorrow set to direct “Star Wars Episode IX”…

So JJ Abrams is the director for Star Wars 7. Rian Johnson is the director for Star Wars 8. Now Colin Trevorrow is set to direct Star Wars 9.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/star-wars-episode-9-director-807838

So how many Star Wars films is there gonna be? I’m thinking there is going to be many of them. It’s definitely not gonna end at 9. Star Wars will be like James Bond, they’ll keep going with them so there could be like 20 to 30 Star Wars movies or more. Plus there will be a bunch of spin-offs.

However, we must concentrate on this new trilogy ’cause it reunites the original cast which is every Star Wars fans dream. We all know that Carrie, Mark and Harrison is reuniting for 7 but will they be up for starring in 8 and 9 as well? Who knows! We’ll have to wait and see what Rian and Colin says.

Harrison is getting too old to be playing Han Solo so I think he’ll be done with that character after this film but will JJ kill Han Solo off in 7? I read somewhere that Harrison tried to get George to kill Han Solo off in “Jedi” by sacrificing himself but George wouldn’t go for it. I’m thinking they “might” actually go for that idea for this film but we’ll have to wait and see.

While they’re gearing up for the new trilogy we still haven’t seen 7 yet which we will around Christmas time. I sure can’t wait for “The Force Awakens” though. I’m gonna be in the theaters for that one for sure. I predict JJ will give us a good Star Wars movie. I have faith in this.

New “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” still photos released by EW…

A bunch of still photos from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has been released by Entertainment Weekly and the photos are pretty cool. Something that Star Wars fans can get all excited about for sure.

You get to finally see recent photos of the two famous droids: R2 and C3PO… not surprisingly the two droids still look the same after 30 years since “Return of the Jedi”.

They still won’t show us Luke and Leia for some reason. They already show us Han Solo in the trailer. Leia was in the trailer but you can’t see her face, she was seen handing over a light saber. I think they’ll show us Luke and Leia in the next trailer possibly.

I really am looking forward to “The Force Awakens” like most people and I’m already feeling it’s gonna be the best film of 2015 hopefully.

Hopefully JJ can give us a good Star Wars movie. We need a good Star Wars movie where we can walk out of the theaters with big smiles on our faces and I think this film will do that. I think JJ will make Star Wars fans happy with this one. Looking good so far.
