With Gareth Edwards' "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" to be the first live-action film in the series that's NOT a part of the greater episodic saga, a couple of key elements central to the other films are likely to be a no show here.

One of those key elements is the traditional opening crawl, with President of Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy admitting to EW that even she doesn't yet know if it will be included in either 'Rogue One' or other "Star Wars" projects:

"We talk about that all the time. It's something that we're right in the midst of discussing even now, so I don't want to say definitively what we're doing. The crawl and some of those elements live so specifically within the 'saga' films that we are having a lot of discussion about what will define the [stand-alone] Star Wars Stories separate and apart from the saga films. So we're right in the middle of talking about that."

Both Kennedy and Edwards have also spoken about the extended reshoots on the film, something that Edwards did not comment throughout the week the reports of the additional filming went online but has now gone on the record, saying:

"It was always part of the plan to do reshoots, We always knew we were coming back somewhere to do stuff. We just didn't know what it would be until we started sculpting the film in the edit... I think it's been blown out of proportion a little bit, [the tone has] not in any way been compromised."

Kennedy agrees, saying Edwards brings a different feel to the universe:

"There's nothing about the story that's changing, with a few things that we're picking up in additional photography. I think that's the most important thing, to reassure fans that it's the movie we intended to make.

One of the things we're doing with these Star Wars stories is embracing the uniqueness of the different genres, and we're very deliberately leaning into the various styles of directors that we're approaching so that each of these movies will very intentionally have a very different tone and style from the saga films. Gareth has shown a stylistic preference that's much more handheld, visceral, inside-the-action kind of feel."

"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" opens on December 16th.

Darth Vader Returns For Rogue One!

For some time, many have theorized that Darth Vader would have some part to play in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as the Death Star is so central to the Sith plan for the galaxy. And according to Entertainment Weekly‘s preview of their upcoming print issue, the Dark Lord is indeed back.

They tease a “run-down of his first day on set,” but it is unclear who might be wearing Vader’s costume. They also mention Vader may tussle with Ben Mendelsohn’s “ambitious officer, who’s eager to earn the favor of the Emperor.”

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opens on December 15th.

It has been a busy few days for "Star Wars" rumors and news, time to break it all down.

First up, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" concept artist Iain McCaig spoke earlier this month at a conference in New Zealand with tidbits from that popping online yesterday over at StarWarsNewsNet.

According to them, McCaig says Lawrence Kasdan penned the script for the "Han Solo: A Star Wars Story" standalone film before he began work on 'Force Awakens'. Of the script, McCaig said: "By far the best Star Wars script, and one of the best scripts period, that I have ever read. I laughed, I cried, I did all the things you should do when reading a good script. You're in for a treat."

He also indicated that after selling Lucasfilm to Disney, George Lucas decided he wanted to be involved and wrote a script for Episode VII which was "rejected outright" by Disney. Apparently Lucas brought in McCaig and another prequel artist to Skywalker Ranch to help him realize his concepts.

A number of initial script ideas teased the involvement of Anakin/Vader's Force ghost - something we saw in early concept art form in "The Art of The Force Awakens" book. The report also claims that Disney executives were originally "reluctant to include non-Caucasian characters," but J.J. Abrams was very adamant in bringing a multi-cultural cast to his film.

Next up, Making Star Wars has posted a report indicating that actress Valene Kane may be playing Lyra Erso, either sister or mother (in flashback scenes) of Felicity Jones' Jyn Erso in the upcoming "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story".

Finally, Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy and filmmaker J.J. Abrams are playable characters in the video game "Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens" which hit shelves this week. Both characters can accept Resistance mission, command troops, and use a blaster.

Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 just got underway today with Mark Hamill taking to the stage for the first major presentation.

The one hour question and answer session kicked off with Hamill admitting upfront that due to contractual obligations he could not talk about "Star Wars Episode VIII" or the future of the "Star Wars" films.

He could, however, talk openly about "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and says the secrecy on set of that film and the new one is insane:

"It can be annoying and intrusive. You get the call sheets and there are no names – only numbers! I really loved number eleven's work on their previous film... It can get out of control with the pages that get shredded. I need a script you can write on and take home and read. They let me have one scene and I keep it on my person... They're not doing it to annoy you, they just want the surprise to be in the movie theater, not the internet. It's for your viewing pleasure that we do this."

He also confirmed the early rumors from years ago that the opening scene of 'Force Awakens' was originally his disembodied hand holding a lightsaber floating through space towards Jakku: "I would have been in the first scene and the last scene."

As for right now though, he revealed that yesterday he was in a studio with Rian Johnson looping dialogue for " Star Wars Episode VIII" and says he already has a few catchphrases that will wind up on t-shirts.

"Star Wars Episode VIII" will open on December 15th 2017.

Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is in the midst of post-production with the visual effects departments working away on the various shots. Others, like composer John Williams, have already recorded the score.

Sitting down with Empire this week, Johnson took a brief break from working on the film to discuss cinematic influences on the film and which classic movies he watched or rewatched to prepare:

“‘Twelve O’Clock High’ was a big touchstone, for the feel and look of the aerial combat as well as the dynamic between the pilots. ‘Three Outlaw Samurai’ for the feel of the sword-fighting, and the general sense of pulpy fun. And ‘To Catch A Thief was a great film to rewatch, for the romantic scale and grandeur.”

Johnson also talked about the actual shoot and how shooting such a big epic is not as different as he expected:

“I guess the biggest surprise was the intimacy of the process. It’s huge, sure, and it’s filled with pressures great and small. But at the end of the day, it boils down to the same things as the smaller films we’ve made: telling a story we care about with a camera and some actors. And a Wookiee.”

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” continues the storylines introduced in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and stars Mark Hamill, the late Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Benicio Del Toro, Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Laura Dern, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran and Andy Serkis. It opens in cinemas on December 15th.

Disney CEO Bob Iger, fresh from a contract renewal that keeps him as the head of Disney through at least mid-2019, appeared at an event at USC this week and has dropped all sorts of “Star Wars” related news which is making headlines.

The big news is the future of the franchise, one that will not end with the ninth episode in 2019 which is currently the end point for the ‘saga’ films: “We’re starting talk about what could happen after Episode IX, about what could be another decade-and-a-half of Star Wars stories.”

Next he discussed Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s Han Solo movie which is currently filming. We already knew that it will focus on how young Han (Alden Ehrenreich) became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel we all first met at Mos Eisley.

Now Iger confirms the film will span a nearly six year stretch – covering Han’s life from 18 to 24, including how he came to possess the Millennium Falcon, how he first met Chewbacca, and “you will also discover how he got his name”.

Finally he confirmed that the recent passing of Carrie Fisher will not impact her role in Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” later this year:

“We had to deal tragedy at the end of 2016. Carrie appears throughout VIII. We are not changing VIII to deal with her passing. Her performance remains as it is in VIII. In Rogue One, we had some digital character. We are not doing that with Carrie.”

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” opens in December, while the Han Solo movie is currently slated for a May 25th 2018 release.

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy gave several interviews during the Star Wars Celebration convention over the April weekend – leading to fan speculation about where the franchise is going once production wraps on Colin Trevorrow’s “Star Wars: Episode IX”.

At the time, Kennedy hinted that the untitled anthology film aiming for a 2020 release could be officially announced as soon as mid-2018 – around the release of the Han Solo spinoff. Now a further quote from E-Cartelera (via SW News Net) suggests we’ll know sooner than that:

“To be honest, we are beginning to talk about [the spin-offs] right now. We have four or five weeks immersed in the film ‘Han Solo’ and we are about to read the script of Colin Trevorrow’s Episode IX directed, so we have a lot of work at the moment.

In the next six or eight months we will have some meetings about the stories that we will develop here. After 40 years of adventures, fans have so much information and so many theories about the way that can take these stories and theories that emerge are sometimes new ideas for us that we hear, read and pay attention to everything what is said.

It is clear that the franchise is owned by the as much by the fans as it’s owned by [the people at Lucasfilm].”

Recent rumors have suggested that the next spin-off after Han Solo will be an Obi-Wan Kenobi ‘lost years’ story and that “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail is working on a script for it. The Han Solo spin-off is slated for May 2018, the next one after that is due for 2020.
