It’s been thirty years since the fall of the Empire. Now the Galaxy faces a new threat from the evil Kylo Ren and the First Order.

And when a defector Stormtrooper named Finn crash-lands on a desert planet, he meets Rey and her droid that contains a map to find Skywalker. A new hope lies with them, their ability to survive and fight against all the odds and the location of Luke Skywalker, the last of the Jedi Knights.
Probably not a very clever title but one that suits this review, this is, after all, the first Star Wars film since Episode III: Revenge of the Sith that came out way back in 2005. Wow, I suddenly feel old.

By: Sean O’Connell Quick! Name three female characters from the original Star Wars! Well, there was Princess Leia. And Luke’s aunt Beru (Shelagh Fraser). And … um. Well … there was, uh, Ashoka? No, that was Clone Wars. Were any of the Jawas female? Clearly George Lucas wasn’t going out of his way to be politically correct back in 1977 when he took audiences to … Continue reading Revealed: Star Wars Originally Had Female X-Wing Pilots
By: Katey Rich This weekend’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be the first opportunity most have to see the world of Middle Earth in 3D– and depending on which screening you choose, you could see it in the ultra-sharp, fairly controversial 48 frames per second. But anyone watching the way Hollywood has worked over the last year or two could probably guess that, at … Continue reading Could The Lord Of The Rings Be Re-Released In 3D? Peter Jackson Seems To Think So
By: Erin O’Sullivan – Access Hollywood George Lucas will be involved in the making of “Star Wars: Episode VII,” but from somewhat of a distance. Access Hollywood caught up with the legend at the Governor’s Awards on Saturday, where he explained what his duties as a “consultant” on the highly-anticipated seventh film will be, following Disney‘s acquisition of Lucasfilms. “[If the filmmakers ask],’Who’s this guy?’ … Continue reading George Lucas: ‘I Don’t Really Have Much To Do’ As ‘Consultant’ On Star Wars: Episode VII
