Production on Star Wars 9 started a few weeks ago and we've been treated to some pretty awesome leaks since then. J.J. Abrams released the very first, and only, official look from the set, and now we have some new pictures of Poe Dameron, Finn, and Chewbacca walking in a grassy area. There are other actors surrounding Oscar Isaac and John Boyega in the images, but it's hard to tell who they are. Some have speculated that one of the actresses spotted in the new set photos is Naomi Ackie, but that has not been confirmed at this time. Star Wars fans will be excited to see Finn and Poe reunited since they've spent so much of the new trilogy apart from each other. While it's not clear where they are in these new Star Wars 9 images, it's a grassy area and the actors are seen on a hill. In addition to Finn, Poe, and Chewbacca, there are also some horses on the set that have long coats on with motion capture tech on their faces, which means that they could be a new species.

x From Alec Guinness as Obi-Wan Kenobi to Daisy Ridley as Rey, the Star Wars franchise has consistently reserved a large section of its cast list for the English, and nowhere is this more evident than amongst the uniformed oppressors of the Empire and First Order. So, when it was announced that Richard E. Grant would be joining the team for next year’s Star Wars: Episode IX, many quickly speculated that he would be playing another stern and villainous Englishman of the Grand Moff Tarkin or General Hux variety. But to go one better, MovieWeb are reporting on a theory that pinpoints a specific character that the Logan and Doctor Who baddie could be playing, and it’s quite intriguing. The villain in question is Grand Admiral Thrawn, a blue-skinned member of the Chiss species who’s yet to be seen in live action form, but whose appearances in various comic books, not to mention the recent seasons of Star Wars Rebels, make him canon. For evidence, fans … [Read more...] about Could Richard E. Grant Be Playing Grand Admiral Thrawn In Star Wars: Episode IX?

** Minor spoilers for Solo ahead ** Jonathan Kasdan co-wrote Solo: A Star Wars Story with his father Lawrence, the man who’s responsible for scripting The Empire Strikes Back. When asked about Lando Calrissian’s sexuality, Jonathan had some wonderful things to say. The kind of forthrightness from Jonathan Kasdan that we get in this interview with The Huffington Post is rare. Even when creatives have strong personal opinions, they often toe the status quo studio party line in the press. But Kasdan didn’t hesitate when The Huffington Post asked if Lando is pansexual. “I would say yes,” Jonathan Kasdan answered. “There’s a fluidity to Donald [Glover] and Billy Dee’s [portrayal of Lando’s] sexuality.” I don’t think many Star Wars fans would, or should, be surprised by this observation. From the moment that we meet Lando in The Empire Strikes Back, his primary … [Read more...] about Solo Screenwriter Says That Lando’s Sexuality Is Fluid, Wants More LGBT Characters in Star Wars
