It's been a good news-bad news kind of day for NBC viewers, as the same afternoon that saw 'Hannibal' renewed for a third season also gave birth to 'Community''s season 5 cancellation. Now, the peacock has thrown a few more logs on the fire, among them freshman comedy 'Growing Up Fisher,' sci-fi flop 'Believe,' and surprisingly, the two-season 'Revolution.'

We've got even more 'Star Wars' goodies for you! Director J.J. Abrams is getting in on the action today with a very special "video selfie" with screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, wishing fans a happy 'Star Wars' day from the set of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' in London, and he seems to be teasing some additional casting.

The ‘Star Wars: Episode 7’ cast was announced this week, and the line-up contains exciting names like Adam Driver, John Boyega, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, and the legendary Max Von Sydow, further cementing (or in some cases, finally rousing) our interest in J.J. Abrams’ new installment. But, there was something curious among the list of newcomers -- there was only one female on the roster: Daisy Ridley. Out of the seven names announced, only one was female, which doesn’t bode well for gender equality in a galaxy that should be far, far away from such seemingly petty concepts.

'Almost Human,' almost renewed.
We hadn't quite kept up with the entirety of FOX's Karl Urban-Michael Ealy android cop drama, though the early episodes were promising enough and increased serialization brought stronger reviews from the fanbase. Alas, FOX has not proven as sympathetic with J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman's post-'Fringe' sci-fier, officially canceling 'Almost Human' after one season.

George Lucas had a backup plan.
It might not seem like such a bold move today – in the era of blockbuster franchises – to be planning for a sequel before the first movie has even been released. But, in the 1970s, this was downright revolutionary thinking. Especially considering that we’re talking about a movie set in another galaxy in an era where such films were considered inane. (Granted, some people still consider them inane.) But not only did Lucas have a plan for a 'Star Wars' sequel, he had two plans. One, as you know, became ‘The Empire Strikes Back.’ The other exists as a sort of alternative universe oddity of what could have been – a story titled ‘Splinter of the Mind’s Eye.’

'Star Wars: Episode 7' has had so many potential cast members at this point that we just want to throw our hands up in the air, yell "Figure it out already!" and return only when director J.J. Abrams is ready to reveal his final ensemble. But alas, the draw of George Lucas' science fiction universe is too great and we can't help but cling to every scrap of information and ever rumor as if our life depended on it. The latest buzz circling around the internet is that relatively unknown British actress Maisie Richardson-Sellers is being eyed for a leading role.

It's been almost a year and a half since 'Star Wars: Episode 7' was announced and over fifteen months since J.J. Abrams became the film's director, but with a December 18, 2015 release date, the film has to begin production shortly if they hope to come out next year. The latest word is the film will commence principle photography in Morocco on May 14.

Forget about 3D. IMAX is the thing that movie studios are going to use to get a few more bucks per movie ticket from you. It should come as no surprise that Disney, who has never been afraid of finding new ways to make money, is planning to release the hotly anticipated 'Star Wars: Episode 7' in this massive format. So are you prepared to pay a little extra to journey to a galaxy far, far away on the biggest screen possible?
