J.J. Abrams re-teaming with The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley for a new sci-fi thriller is very exciting, but even more exciting is the third ingredient in this project — Marielle Heller, who made her directorial debut on last year’s indie favorite Diary of a Teenage Girl, will helm the new film, which marks Ridley’s first major starring role outside of Star Wars.

Last night, J.J. Abrams participated in a Q&A with Chris Rock at the Tribeca Film Festival, where topics ranged from superhero films to lens flares to — inevitably — Star Wars: The Force Awakens. When asked if Rey’s parents are in the film, Abrams basically said no, sending fans into a speculation spiral as they crossed Han Solo, Luke and Leia off their lists and prepared to begin a new chapter in their theorizing. But then Abrams clarified his comments in a later statement, taking us right back to where we started with this whole crazy speculation game.

One of the biggest questions (of many) to come out of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was, Who are Rey’s parents? Much is made in the film of Rey being an orphan and left behind on Jakku with Unkar Plutt, slowly counting down the days until her family...

Last week was a pretty busy one over at Warner Bros. — following the underwhelming box office and reactions to Batman v Superman, the studio is reportedly doubling down on its established blockbuster franchises and scaling back on the number of films released each year. They also set release dates for a few untitled projects, with many speculating that at least one of them is Ben Affleck’s solo Batman film. According to a new rumor, we may know what one of the other films could be.

Lucasfilm released an announcement video a couple of weeks ago to kick off production on Star Wars: Episode VIII, showing just a tiny glimpse of footage that made it look as if Rian Johnson was picking up where J.J. Abrams left off. If you had any doubts that Episode VIII would begin where The Force Awakens ends, Daisy Ridley has confirmed that this is definitely the case — and that Luke Skywalker will have much more to do this time around.

Rewrites are common in filmmaking, especially for big blockbuster films, where there are so many moving parts that filmmakers sometimes need to recalibrate to keep things focused — which makes this rumor about Star Wars: Episode VIII hardly surprising. Rumor has it that Rian Johnson’s screenplay may be undergoing a few minor rewrites as a response to the reactions to The Force Awakens, and while that sentence may trigger an eyebrow raise, you should know that this is totally a good thing — if true.

The great franchise toy saga continues, as J.J. Abrams has weighed in on the absence of Daisy Ridley’s Rey from much of The Force Awakens merchandising. The new lead character of the Star Wars franchise isn’t featured in nearly as many toys and merchandising as her male counterparts, inspiring the Twitter hashtag #WheresRey. And following Paul Feig’s reveal of new Ghostbusters action figure prototypes, it seems more crucial than ever that we criticize Disney for their lack of Rey merch — and Abrams is doing just that.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has officially surpassed James Cameron’s Titanic as the second highest-grossing film of all time, and will take over Avatar’s top spot in the next couple of days as the film hits theaters in China — basically, everyone has seen The Force Awakens, and many of you have seen it multiple times by now, but there are still some lingering questions. While many of those answers won’t be delivered until Episode VIII hits theaters in 2017, the screenplay for The Force Awakens appears to clear up at least a couple of things, specifically with regards to the ending.
