A MIRACLE New Year’s Day baby has been named Bellatrix Daenerys Leia, in honour of her parents’ favourite fantasy film characters. The unusual moniker was chosen by mum Kay, 29, after she was told she wouldn’t be able to have any more children following an operation to remove pre-cancerous cells from her cervix. Just two weeks after being left devastated by the news, Kay and husband Glynn, 39, were delighted to find out they were pregnant with twins. The couple, who live in Runcorn, Cheshire, sadly lost one of the babies quite early on because one embryo absorbed the other, and revealed it was “touch and go” as to whether the other would survive. It wasn’t until halfway through the pregnancy that Kay Davies, who has four other children, decided she wanted to give her daughter needed a more ‘unique’ name. Up until that point the stay-at-home mum had been adamant she wanted to call the new addition Rosie. However, the die-hard movie fans … [Read more...] about Mum who has miracle baby after being told she’d never get pregnant again names her daughter after all her favourite characters from Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and Star Wars

When Disney bought Lucasfilm and announced that they would be bringing STAR WARS back, Lilly thought that she had an in when J.J. Abrams, co-creator of Lost, was set to direct. Lilly's dream: to play Princess Leia. "Several years ago, when I found out that J.J. Abrams was remaking, or rebooting, the Star Wars franchise, it was the only time in my career that I’ve ever put a call out," Lilly said. "I wanted to be Leia. If I got to be a woodland elf and Kate from Lost and Leia, … [Read more...] about Evangeline Lilly wanted to play Princess Leia in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars

It's been a year since the release of the eighth "saga" Star Wars film, Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi, and I still don't get it. Not the movie -- I "got" the movie by about its 2-hour mark -- but rather, the purported fan backlash to same; and secondary to that, the media's embrace of that backlash as The Last Jedi's defining characteristic. I don't get it, because I am a Star Wars fan, who thinks a lot about Star Wars (arguably, more than I should); and because from the moment the credits rolled on December 14th, 2017, one phrase floated to the top of my mind and has remained there ever since: that whether you liked it or hated it (and, even then, I suspected that many would hate it), one had to objectively admit that The Last Jedi was, from soup to nuts, a Star Wars fan's Star Wars film. By which I mean, it was the first time I'd seen a Star Wars film that had clearly been made by someone who loved the series as much as, and had thought about it as obsessively as, me.
