JJ Abrams and the cast & crew of “Star Wars: Episode VII” have decided to halt filming for two weeks so they can give Harrison Ford more time to heal. While announcing the film’s break, they just signed two new cast members to join the film. Don’t get too excited though ’cause the two new cast members are completely unknowns.
A lot of people want to blame Harrison’s old age like I mistakenly did. Maybe I was wrong to blame Harrison’s age. I mean, the accident might not be Harrison’s fault but maybe it was the film crew’s fault, they weren’t actually paying attention.
Man, that’s gotta really suck when an actor gets signed for a huge role and then he gets injured when starting to work.
Hopefully, they’ll be more careful next time when Harrison returns.
Kevin Smith, the actor/director who is a big time comic book lover and Star Wars fanatic visits the “Star Wars Episode VII” set in London at Pinewood Studios. We all know that Kevin is obsessed with Star Wars and he always had positive things to say about the franchise. He even loved all the prequels. It’s no secret that Kevin is obsessed with Star Wars. Almost all of his movies have Star Wars references in them especially, “Clerks” and “Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back”.
Anyway, whatever Kev have seen on set that got him in tears look like JJ is gonna give us a good Star Wars movie.
He’s not allowed to talk about what he have seen ’cause he signed an agreement ordering him to keep it quiet. I’m sure he would love to talk about everything he have seen but he can’t or he would get in trouble. How would he get in trouble? Maybe a possible fine or a lawsuit. Things like that.
JJ is really serious and careful on not getting too much out there. He have always been secretive like that.
It’s too bad Kev didn’t get to see Harrison on set ’cause he’s currently nursing a leg injury, obviously. I wish Harrison well and I pray that JJ will be able to film all of Han Solo’s scenes without dropping Harrison out of the film ’cause it could happen. I don’t think it’ll happen, though. I think Harrison will heal quickly and will be back to filming before you know it. Harrison’s injury will probably affect the release date, though, we could deal with a lot of push-backs.
A rumor got out that Tom Cruise is in talks to have some kind of small role or cameo of some sorts for “Star Wars Episode VII”. It was reported that Tom met with JJ Abrams in London for a meeting. If this is true, then this would be no surprise that Tom maybe involved with the upcoming Star Wars. JJ and Tom are long time collaborators as they worked on the four Mission Impossible movies together.
I think Tom will be a nice addition to the cast! I’m all for it if it’s true! Will Tom’s role be a good guy or will he be part of the Empire? We’ll have to wait and see!
I haven’t seen Tom’s latest movie, “Edge of Tomorrow” yet. I’ll probably wait for DVD rental on that one, though.
It was kind of predictable that Harrison Ford is gonna get himself hurt somehow in the upcoming Star Wars films being that he is 71 and all. Even if it wasn’t an action stunt, he still got injured anyway! Well, I guess we can definitely confirm that Harrison and Chewie will be flying the Millennium Falcon once more time ’cause that’s what Harrison just got injured on. He got hurt by the opening of the door of the Millennium Falcon. If you’ve seen the original trilogy, you would know how the Falcon’s door opens. It opens from underdeath. I am thinking that Harrison tried to get on the Falcon as the door was coming down and it hit his ankle.
The injury doesn’t sound that serious so he would probably have to take a few days off of filming to heal up.
I think this is a sign of old age. He haven’t been on a Star Wars set in many many years so he probably wasn’t used to the Falcon.
I think there’s nothing to worry about, though. He’ll be back for more filming and I hope he’ll be more careful next time.
When JJ released this photo calling out the spies leaking the photos to the internet of “Star Wars Episode VII”, I think JJ is just being sarcastic and joking a bit in his little rant there. I mean look at where he taped that note on??? That large piece of metal with the red lights on it. Don’t you think maybe that’s part of the Millennium Falcon??? I think this message is just one of his cryptic teasers. Just one of his weird secrecy stuff, if ya know what I mean.
I know he can’t do anything about leaked photos ’cause that the way the internet and technology is, these days. People are gonna keep leaking photos.
I’m sure we’re gonna see leaked photos of Harrison, Mark, Carrie, Lupita and Gwendoline on set real soon.
I hate TMZ like the next person but I thought this would be worth posting. TMZ exclusively reveals which looks like a photo of the construction of the Millennium Falcon for “Star Wars Episode 7” at Pinewood Studios. Look like we are gonna see Han and Chewy back in action again!
I wonder if we’re gonna see the return of Tie Fighters and other Empire war ships. We’re definitely gonna see some epic space battles in “Episode VII” for sure!
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.
