Tony Gilroy will write and direct the forthcoming Star Wars spin-off series based on Rogue One hero Cassian Andor.
Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, has admitted that the studio has released too many Star Wars movies too quickly.
You’ve likely seen your fair share of end of the year film lists and rankings of the best and worst 2016 has had to offer, but here is something of an official take on the matter courtesy of YouGov. According to the polling site, they’ve figured out what Britain’s favourite film of the year was, and the results may surprise some of you. It’s not stated just how many people took part in the vote, but the top spot was in fact a draw betweeen the Ryan Reynolds-starring ‘Deadpool’ and ‘Harry Potter’ spin-off ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ – two very different films, admittedly.
The biggest talking point among people who have seen ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ is undoubtedly the return of Grand Moff Tarkin and how it was achieved. Peter Cushing played the character in 1977’s ‘A New Hope’ but sadly died in 1994 at the age of 81.
After months of teasing, the new – and final – ‘Rogue One – A Star Wars Story’ trailer has finally given us a good look at the return of Darth Vader. Set before the events of ‘Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope’, but after ‘Revenge of the Sith’, ‘Rogue One’ promises to show Vader at the height of his power, and as he strides across the screen in the new trailer you’re reminded of the Dark Lord Sith’s incredibly menacing screen presence.
