Star Wars Han Solo Film Has Begun Filming

Today brings word that the next Star Wars film is underway. The untitled Han Solo-focused movie began filming on February 20 at Pinewood Studios in London, and today brought us a shot that shows some of the cast and crew gathered together in the Millennium Falcon’s cockpit.

The new film stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca,  and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, along with other cast members Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The movie is being co-directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and written by Lawrence Kasdan and Jon Kasdan. 

It's a safe bet that Star Wars fans will be watching the Han Solo movie very closely, and may be more ready to critique actors who are reinterpreting such iconic roles as Han Solo and Lando Calrissian. At the same time, it’s certainly exciting to think about new adventures with those characters in which we should get a new glimpse at their earlier lives before the original trilogy storyline.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Title Confirmed Plural By International Sources

Since Star Wars Episode VIII's subtitle, The Last Jedi, was revealed a few weeks ago, fans have been wondering whether or not The Last Jedi was referring to a single Jedi, or multiple Jedi. Thanks to international versions of the logo, fans now know that the title is referring to multiple Jedi instead of just one. 

Looking at the German reveal specifically, the word for "last" is used in the plural form, denoting multiple Jedi. Similarly, the Spanish version of the logo is being reported to utilize a plural order as well.

What this means for the final film remains to be seen. While first impressions might lead to the assumption that Luke Skywalker and Rey are the titular Last Jedi, there is still a good amount we don't know about the film at this point. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to hit theatres on December 15, 2017

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Will Feature A Single-Player Campaign, Multiple Eras

One of the most requested features for DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront was a single player campaign – something the sequel looks to deliver.

During an earnings call today, Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed that the Star Wars Battlefront sequel will release this holiday season. DICE, Motive Studios, and Criterion are all working on the title, which will feature new locations, heroes, and a single-player campaign. EA also plans to include content from multiple Star Wars eras such as the The Force Awakens and Rogue One.

 

Our Take
The more I hear about the Battlefront sequel the more it sounds like a real crowd-pleaser. I skipped the last game because if sounded a little light on content. I probably won't skip this entry.

The Next Star Wars Film Is Called ‘The Last Jedi’

Many Star Wars fans thought Lucasfilm would wait until April's Star Wars Celebration to reveal the official title for Star Wars: Episode VIII, but the studio decided against a dramatic unveiling, and instead revealed the name on Twitter. The film is called Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and it opens in theaters on December 15.

The name is obviously focused on Luke Skywalker, but it also may talk about the path Rey goes on. Is she turning her back on becoming a Jedi, or will she become the last Jedi? If she's the last Jedi, what does that mean for Luke? The film reunites The Force Awakens' cast of Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher, and welcomes Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern.

The timing of the name reveal may mean a trailer debuts during the Super Bowl on February 5. We'll likely learn more soon. Until then, what do you think of the name?
