“Star Wars Episode VII” is all done filming!!!

JJ Abrams and the cast and crew of “Star Wars Episode VII” have just finished filming. Yep… they are done already. As you’ll read in this article, the cast and crew filmed the movie at three different locations: Abu Dhabi desert, the Forest of Dean and of course, Pinewood Studios in London.

After the wrapping of filming, the cast and crew decided to celebrate it at the Science Museum in London.

I hope JJ won’t let us down and once again, we deserve a good Star Wars movie after the disastrous prequels Lucas gave us. I’m glad Harrison was able to film all of his scenes without hurting himself again.

I’m sure this film will be full of epic lightsaber fights and plenty of outer space X-wing vs. Tie-fighter battles and all that stuff. It’ll hopefully be the true Star Wars movie that we all want. I’m sure JJ will give us more info about the film like what the subtitle is gonna be and the plot. I’m sure we’ll get a teaser trailer soon as well.

Congrats to Disney and JJ, looking forward to it!

“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.

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.

“Star Wars Episode VII” cast revealed!!! Harrison, Mark and Carrie finally confirmed!!!

JJ just released this photo today surprisingly. Here is the new cast doing a table reading in London.

As you can see there is a mix of veterans and newbies in the cast.

The veterans seated are: Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Anthony Daniels (C3Po), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), and Kenny Baker (RSD2).

The newbies are: Oscar Isaac (“Inside Llewyn Davis”), Adam Driver (“Girls”), John Boyega (“Attack the Block”), Daisy Ridley, (“Blue Season”) and Domhnall Gleeson (“About Time”)

Look like Jesse Plemons and Lupita Nyong’o didn’t make the cut.

Since they just revealed the cast officially today… I’m assuming May the 4th this Sunday, they will reveal the “title” and the “plot”???

Carrie Fisher maybe looking different these days since she is older and gained some weight over the years but I’m sure they will find ways to get her to look like Princess Leia again. I remember Princess Leia was freakin’ hot in the original trilogy. With makeup, costumes, and hair stylists… they’ll make Princess Leia beautiful again. Carrie Fisher still is beautiful, though. Carrie is seated on the right, sitting next to Peter the Chewbacca actor. You can see Mark talking to an old guy with white hair. Harrison sitting next to JJ, of course.

Please don’t mess it up, JJ!!! Please!

More on “Star Wars 7″…

I wonder how long Harrison, Carrie and Mark will appear in “Star Wars 7” for? Are they just cameos or they’re just part of the leading roles? Or what? I hope Han, Leia and Luke won’t be just small roles. I wanna see Han and Luke in action again. Han and Chewie back to flying the Milennium Falcon. Luke in more amazing lightsaber battles. I’m sure we’ll get all that. 🙂 I’m sure the Empire hasn’t gone away yet. I also wouldn’t rule out the return of Boba Fett ’cause he may still be alive, ya never know… the same goes for Master Palpatine. Darth Vader woudn’t return ’cause it wouldn’t make any sense. Adam Driver’s villain character will probably be the new Darth character.

The new film will focus on new young leads and I’m pretty sure that Jesse Plemons and Lupita Nyong’o  will end up being the new Jedi hopefuls and I’m sure we’ll see those two in action too.

Will we see the return of Lando? It’s pretty unlikely ’cause I haven’t seen any news of Billy Dee Williams in London and looking at his twitter page, he’s busy doing other projects so it’s looking like Lando won’t be in this one. Still though, never say never on Lando… don’t rule him out yet either. They still got long ways a way for filming “Star Wars 7” so maybe they could use Lando sometime in the future?

This Star Wars could be very interesting. I’m still skeptical ’cause of what JJ did to “Star Trek Into Darkness” so hope they do a good job with “Star Wars 7” and hope they don’t let us down.

I’m hoping “Star Wars 7” won’t be a a short movie either. It should be a long 2 and a half hours. May the 4th is this coming Sunday and I’m sure we’ll know everything then.

I’m sure when “Star Wars 7” hits theater, it’s going to be a box office smash so the theaters will probably be packed for a long while. I’m sure people will be camping out on opening night too.

I am somewhat skeptical and excited at the same time, though. I know weird. That’s what Star Wars does to ya. I like Star Wars, sure. I’m more of a “Star Trek” fan than “Star Wars”, though.

I’m looking forward to May 4th. That’s gonna be a big day and social media will be all over it.

New photo of Mark Hamill surfaces online…

Mark Hamill is in London while Star Wars Episode VII is filming there. Even though Mark haven’t been confirmed yet for “Star Wars Episode VII”, this is pretty much proof that he has been signed for the role. Hamill maybe older but he still looks like Luke Skywalker. Mark have lost some weight, though, and he’s looking real good.

See the new photo of Mark here:

They’re not using the Expanded Universe for the new movies so things could get interesting.

Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher to reprise their roles as Luke and Leia for “Star Wars 7”??? Seems so…

Before the Disney and Lucasfilm merging, George Lucas, contacted none other than Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher first before everyone else got to know about Lucas’s plans. George didn’t really ask them to come back as Luke and Leia, he just wanted to give them the news first that they were going to go on to make, “Star Wars 7, 8, and 9”. Why did George give the news first to Mark and Carrie? Probably because the next trilogy will be written for Luke and Leia to return, and George wanted to get their blessing.

Just like most of us Star Wars fans, even Mark Hamill has mixed feelings on the Disney/Lucasfilm team up. Will Luke and Leia return for the next film? It wouldn’t surprise me, if “Star Wars 7” will be written for them to return.

If they are coming back, I hope they get Harrison Ford as Han Solo and Billy Dee Williams back as cameos. I think it’ll be cool, if they continue the story of, Luke Skywalker. I hope that’s what they’re going for.

More on the story, here.

“Batman: Arkham Asylum” is the 2nd best game that I own in my collection…

While I still say that “Bioshock” is the best game ever made, I would like to add that “Batman: Arkham Asylum” is the second best, close behind it. I’ve been playing a lot of, “Arkham Asylum”. The game is absolutely incredible. I’m so blown away and speechless by this game. Such a perfect Batman game.

The graphics are amazing, the sound is great, the voice work is also really good, especially Mark Hamill doing the voice over of the Joker which is awesome.

This is the most addicting game I’ve ever played as I’ve been playing it A LOT. When you see that this blog has slowed down a bit, it’s probably because switching back and forth to video games to fitness. Video games is something I do when I take a break and rest from working out.

In “Arkham Asylum”, is actually a very challenging and difficult game, I like it that way. I always play games in the hard/difficulty modes. I’m still getting pretty far in the game already though.

In my opinion, I think “Arkham Asylum” is definitely the best superhero game ever made. There are a lot of superhero games out there, but most of them suck. “Arkham Asylum”  tops them all. It takes a lot of practice to get the hang of the game and know what you’re doing.

I wish the video game industry would make a decent Superman game that is just as good as this, but most Superman video games suck too.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Batman my entire life and still am. In this game you would see a lot of familiar faces. All the popular Batman villains besides the Joker is in this. That includes, Scarecrow, Harley Quinn, etc. Btw, Harley Quinn is voiced by Arleen Sorkin as well. The Riddler does not appear in the game, however, he does leave riddles and stuff leading Batman to some clues.

This game is a must have for all Batman fanatics. If you love Batman and if you don’t have this game yet, what are you waiting for? Get it SOON! You won’t be dissapointed at all. The action and the gameplay is so amazing.

After I beat the game, hopefully soon, I will write more about it.
