Could Star Wars: Episode VII see Luke Skywalker establishing his own school in a distant land, following in the footsteps of his Jedi master, Oprah? Yes, says Reuters, so it must be true.
In an article about both the Mayan apocalypse and how George Lucas used Guatemalan temples and forests as a backdrop for the moon base Yavin 4, it’s casually claimed that Disney’s recently-announced new Star War will be one “in which Skywalker comes back to [Yavin 4] to build a Jedi Knight academy.”
It makes sense as an idea, and seems to match up with what the Wookieepedia claims is Star Wars canon for Yavin’s future, but before we start dreaming of the many hilarious pranks to be played on mean ol’ Dean Skywalker, it’s probably worth noting that the article gives no source for their information, and it seems pretty likely this is not official, as Disney is not the type to reveal their top secret projects to guys writing about a loose connection between Star Wars and the Mayan apocalypse. Still, something to think about. At least for the brief time we have left before the Mayan calendar and Star Wars claims us all.
Question by Sinner: Are you going to boycott the new Star Trek movie?
I am because they asked Leonard Nimoy to appear, but they refused William Shatner.
I think they should find a role for any remaining original actor/actress before it is too late.
I will however find a free bootleg to watch, but I will never spend a penny on it’s release as I do buy other new release movies for their full cost.
Answer by LK
>”I do buy other new release movies for their full cost”
That’s comparable to paying the “stupid tax”!
>” I will never spend a penny”
So what! I got news for you, producing movies is a business, it runs on a budget.
The original Star Trek was playing before you were genetic material!

While directors like Spielberg, Tarantino, and Visionary Zack Snyder have been quickly denying they would ever make a Star War, other famed directors that haven’t been so preemptively dismissive remain possibilities we can still pretend would somehow do this. So Team Coco has done just that, imagining how iconic, easily-parodied directors like Wes Anderson, Woody Allen, Michael Moore, and a few others might tackle the franchise in a recent series of videos you can watch below. Auteur clichés!
With John Carter failing to really take off like they thought it would, the Walt Disney Company has announced that, screw it, they’re just going to buy up someone else’s already-successful CGI space epic. Specifically, they’re going to purchase LucasFilm and make some more of those Star Wars everyone likes so much.
The studio today announced the acquisition of LucasFilm Ltd. in exchange for $ 4.05 billion in cash and stocks. Lucas had earlier this year expressed interest in getting out of the blockbuster business, and it seems he’s now doing just that, with LucasFilm co-chair Kathleen Kennedy moving up to the president’s seat while the company’s founder, in his own words, will “pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers” who will presumably not try to ruin it so hard.
But, of course, the real smack-your-desk “holy shit” of this story is Disney’s accompanying announcement that they don’t plan on squandering the fact that episode numbers could exist beyond VI. There aren’t many specifics yet, but the studio sure isn’t wasting any time on moving forward with another Star Wars sequel: they’re trumpeting that they’ll get one in theaters by 2015, with Kennedy serving as executive producer and Lucas staying on as merely a creative consultant, someone to turn to if the new director can’t think of any racial stereotypes or silly voices for the new CGI aliens.
Though the deal gives Disney control of all the Star Wars characters, as well as their own roster and their Marvel acquisitions, it is not clear if or when Jar Jar, Thor, and Pooh will be made available on a single varsity jean jacket.
Christopher Nolan’s longtime cinematographer Wally Pfister, who won Oscar in 2010 for Inception, has scored a big, hat-loving name to headline his directorial debut. According to Alcon Entertainment, Pfister’s Transcendence is going to be led by Johnny Depp, possibly explaining why Depp is no longer staying at the hotel Wes Anderson. Plot details are being kept secret, so for now we can continue making up whatever we want Transendence to be. I’m saying Depp plays a cop on the hunt for an incarcerated serial killer who’s been continuing to commit murders by leaving his physical body, thus forcing Det. Depp to meditate in after him. Really awesome.
Clint Eastwood still hasn’t been able to find a male lead for his A Star Is Born remake, and now both star Beyoncé and any and all references to how he “shoulda put a ring on it” have been lost on the director as well.
Though Beyoncé was long-attached to the project, Variety reports the singer-cum-actress has now dropped out of plans to play the talented young ingenue role–last played by Barbra Streisand in 1976′s A Star Is Born remake–due to scheduling issues. Or rather, a lack of scheduling to have issues with: the forever-delayed project still doesn’t have a shoot date, nor an actor to play the drunken mentor role, and having Eastwood’s face staring out of the Beyoncé calendar as a permanent question mark just became too much to handle.
The director is said to be interested in jazz musician Esperanza Spaulding now taking over the part, but he apparently won’t be offering it to her or anyone else until he finds the male co-star–which, as we’ve been following, hasn’t been going so well, with Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Smith, Christian Bale, Jon Hamm, Robert Downey Jr., Russell Crowe, and even Eminem all once rumored to have been offered or considered for the part, to no avail. Eastwood is definitely scowling about this right now.
