After a week off, the ScreenCrush ScreenCrunch Cereal Of The Week has returned.
Since the last edition of ScreenCrunch, there’s been a lot of ‘Star Wars’ news! So, in celebration of the newly announced cast of ‘Star Wars: Episode VII,’ let’s take a look at C-3POs Star Wars: Episode II Cereal.
Not sold on the rumored 'Star Wars: Episode 7' title, 'The Ancient Fear'? It's okay, you're not the only one; even director J.J. Abrams doesn't seem too excited to slap such a moniker on his first 'Star Wars' film (though, this is the guy who made a film called 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' so it certainly could be worse).
Ever since George Lucas sold 'Star Wars' to Disney a year and a half ago, there's been word of sequels and spinoffs in the works. But the production of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' took longer to launch than expected, and so the effort to create those standalone films was put on the back burner. Now that 'Episode 7' is days away from shooting, Disney is beating the drum again, and have announced they'll be at least three new spinoffs coming before 2024.
Last week, at least a partial cast was revealed for 'Star Wars: Episode 7'. Almost immediately, speculation began on who the new actors would be playing. Will John Boyega be a young Jedi? Will Adam Driver be a Sith Lord? Will Daisy Ridley (who is strongly rumored to be the daughter of Han and Leia) be a Jedi, too?
The 'Star Wars: Episode 7' casting hasn't even been completed, with roles both major and supporting still left to be announced, so it seems a bit premature to already have the new 'Star Wars' title, but has it leaked online in advance of an official announcement?
The 'Star Wars' films made George Lucas a millionaire, but it was the toys that made him a billionaire. People have been buying 'Star Wars' toys for nearly 40 years now and the merchandising has seemingly never slowed down, with both kids and adult collectors devouring every new release. Hasbro has revealed a look at some future 'Star Wars' items and fans of Yoda and Jabba the Hutt are going to be very, very happy.
Since Lucasfilm unveiled the cast of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' last week as they commenced with the first table read -- how do we put this bluntly? -- we've pretty much been taking anything we can get from the film. While Sunday's Star Wars Day was in full swing (and May the 4th still be with you always), Lucasfilm unveiled our first look at Peter Mayhew back in costume as Chewbacca.
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.
Just the other day, the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' cast was announced with one surprising name we hadn't heard rumored: mo-cap specialist Andy Serkis. The 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' and 'Lord of the Rings' actor will presumably be playing a new CGI 'Star Wars' character in the film, but before he starts on 'Episode 7' he'll be working on the other biggest movie of 2015: 'The Avengers 2'.
