The WW2 drama is now considered a British classic, but it was once a controversial depiction of prisoners of war.
J.J. Abrams has smuggled in plenty of nods and cameos from the history of the 'Star Wars' franchise into this final installment.
Ewan McGregor has confirmed the 'Star Wars' spin-off series will be set between 'Revenge of the Sith' and 'A New Hope'.
After ‘Star Wars: The Force Awaken’ movie fans have been wildly speculating about the parentage of the saga’s new leading lady Rey, who is played by Daisy Ridley. Many have suggested that Rey could be the daughter of ‘Rogue One’s’ Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) while there are some that have predicted that she might be related to Obi Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness & Ewan McGregor), too. While speaking to Vulture Ridley confirmed that we will finally get an answer to this quandary in ‘Star Wars 8′.
‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ star Oscar Isaac stole the show at Letters Live last night reading a typically withering letter written by Sir Alec Guinness while he was filming ‘A New Hope’ in 1976. The note, addressed to the actor’s friend Anne Kauffman, criticises the film’s “rubbish dialogue” and calls Harrison Ford “a rangy, languid young man”. Isaac’s reading of the letter - his second appearance of the night - was met with rapturous applause at the literary event.
First Simon Pegg, then Daniel Craig, and now ‘Star Wars’ alumnus Ewan McGregor has been revealed to have made a cameo appearance in 'The Force Awakens’. Yep, Obi-Wan Kenobi himself from Episodes One, Two and Three recorded some dialogue for the J.J. Abrams reboot, the director has confirmed, along with voices from Frank Oz (Yoda) and Alec Guinness (the original Kenobi) too. After the movie emerged last week, fans presumed that the voice of Obi-Wan, heard at the point that Daisy Ridley’s Rey discover’s Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber, was James Arnold Taylor, who voices the character on the 'Clone Wars’ TV series.
