This Star Wars movie could have no lens-flares… I didn’t see any in the trailer…

One thing that impressed me with the new “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” trailer is that it didn’t have any lens flares effects. A lot of us expected that the film will be full of lens flares since JJ is so obsessed with that camera effect but look like we aren’t gonna see any in Star Wars 7. Why did JJ decided to ditch the lens flares for Star Wars 7???

I would think that in order to keep the film, George Lucas styled… and for the film to be more like the original trilogy, he would have to get rid of the lens flares. He didn’t want to ruin the magic of what a true Star Wars film would be. He wanted to keep the fans happy and give them what they want so he ditched the lens flares.

There’s gonna be less CGI and less green screen in this film ’cause most of it was filmed for real… kind of like how George Lucas filmed them, ya know?

Seeing no lens flares was awesome. Hopefully there won’t be any of that at all in the film ’cause honestly, I’m with everyone else that JJ’s lens flare effects is pretty lame and silly. It’ll be nice if we didn’t see any of that in the new Star Wars movie.


Warwick Davis confirmed to return to “Star Wars” for “Episode VII” but will he reprise his role as an older Wicket???

Midget actor, Warwick Davis, just confirmed in this video that he is having a role for JJ’s “Star Wars: Episode VII” but the character he is playing haven’t been revealed yet. If you don’t know who Warwick Davis is, he got his start in acting playing Wicket the Ewok for “Return of the Jedi”. That was his first major movie role. Then he played Wicket again for the two Star Wars spin-off films in “Caravan of Courage: An Ewoks adventure” and “Ewoks: The Battle of Endor”.

Later in his career, Warwick became a more well-known actor after he landed the leading role for “Willow” directed by Ron Howard and starred in the first three, “Leprechaun” movies. He also had an appearance in “Star Wars Episode I” under 5 different characters and had roles in the Harry Potter films.

I also remembered seeing Warwick having a role in a Dr. Who episode toward the end of Season 7.

Are we gonna see the return of the Ewoks in “Episode VII” or is Warwick set to play a different character???

I think it would be cool if Warwick did reprise his role as an older Wicket. “Star Wars 7” could start off where “Return of the Jedi” left off. “Star Wars 7” could start on the Moon of Endor and Wicket could have a short cameo appearance, maybe.

I know the Ewoks is not everyone’s favorite but I enjoyed those characters. I thought “Return of the Jedi” was fun for what it was and it made sense to use the Ewoks for that film. The Ewoks were obviously created for children’s entertainment, yes but I thought they were an important part of the story. Han, Leia and Luke needed a little guidance ’cause they knew they couldn’t get to the Empire bunker alone on Endor so it was smart to use Ewoks to help them out. I liked, “Return of the Jedi” not the best Star Wars film (“Empire” was the best) but it was entertaining.

Warwick could also be playing more than one role for “Episode 7” so keep that in mind. He has always been known to playing more than one characters in movies over the years.

Warwick is a great actor and underrated. I always respected him. “Willow” is one of my favorite movies too.


“Star Wars Episode VII” officially adds Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie joins…

JJ Abrams, “Star Wars 7” adds two more to the cast. It is no surprise that “12 Years A Slave” star Lupita Nyong’o was gonna get added because she has been rumored for a long time now and it’s finally official that she’s definitely in! “Game of Thrones” star Gwendoline Christie who is known for her role as Brienne Maid of Tarth have also been added to “Star Wars 7”.

As you can see, the roles of the new cast are being kept secret for now but we’ll learn more later.

I am assuming though, that Lupita is gonna be the main female lead and she will probably steal the show. JJ is well known for creating interesting female characters and he’ll probably do that with Lupita. Is she gonna be a Jedi being mentored by Luke Skywalker? Wouldn’t surprise me if she’ll be the one with the light saber fighting Adam Driver’s villain character.


JJ gives us a sneak peek on the set of “Star Wars 7” while announcing contest in Abu Dhabi…

While announcing a fundraiser contest where you get the opportunity to have a cameo appearance in “Star Wars 7”, JJ gives us a little sneak peek on set in Abu Dhabi, the desert where they are filming.

As you see in the background, all kinds of people walking around with Star Wars costumes. Then suddenly, you see a little guy walking behind JJ carrying something on his back which looks like a new character for “Star Wars 7”.

Like I said, JJ showing us a little bit at a time. Everyone knows he is obsessed with all of this secrecy. JJ’s been like this with all of his past movies. He never liked to reveal too much.


Star Wars 7 just started filming at Pinewood Studios in London…




As you can see filming for Star Wars 7 have finally begun!!! Also, notice how they are very careful at not revealing too much info with these photos. I’m almost positive that JJ does not allow the cast and crew to take photos and videos so mobile phones and other devices are not allowed in the studios so I don’t think you’re gonna see too much leaked photos of filming.

Only the official Star Wars page will reveal a little bit at a time. They’re still secretive on the “subtitle” too. I’m sure the subtitle is written on that clapboard in the first photo but as you can see, they wouldn’t show the whole thing.

I pray they do a good job with the film.



JJ and Lawrence Kasdan gives fans Star Wars Day greeting…

This is pretty cool. JJ Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan gives fans a Star Wars Greeting while they’re just starting work on “Episode VII”. They are STILL tight-lipped on the subtitle and synopsis but all they said was they are pretty excited to be working on the next movie. They look it too. You can tell by the look of their faces that they are pretty stoked! I mean hell, who wouldn’t be stoked? It’s freakin’ Star Wars, man!

Man, I was hoping for a Star Wars Day greeting from Mark, Harrison, and Carrie… that would have made Star Wars Day even more exciting!


Happy Star Wars day…

While I am a Star Wars fan like a lot of you out there… I am more of a fan of the original trilogy. I love “A New Hope”, “Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi”. I love the original editions of those movies when they first came out in theaters. I never cared for all the new versions of the original trilogy. I refuse to get the original trilogy on BluRay ’cause I don’t want Darth Vader screaming “Nooo” at the end of “Return of the Jedi”.

I was never a big fan of the prequels; although, “Episode III: Revenge of the Sith” was a pretty good one. The film was still a mess but pretty decent.

And like I said before, I’m more into “Star Trek” than “Star Wars” but I still respect “Star Wars” for it’s legacy and all that. I grew up on both “Star Trek” and “Star Wars”. I like “Star Trek” more ’cause it’s true science-fiction and their stories aren’t as childish.

As for “Episode VII”, I haven’t seen the official Star Wars page drop any new announcements yet today. I was expecting them to announce the “subtitle” and the “synopsis”. Maybe they’ll make those announcements later this evening.

“Empire Strike Back” will always be my favorite Star Wars film. Could “Episode VII” be just as good now that Lawrence Kasdan is helping out with the writing? Hoping and praying.
