Star Wars Celebration Bits: The Best of SWCO, Hayden Christensen’s Thoughts on Sand, Vader’s Spa, and More

Star Wars Celebration 2017

In this Celebration-centric edition of Star Wars Bits:

  • An official video recapping the best moments of Celebration 2017.
  • Hayden Christensen’s true feelings about sand.
  • An announcement about the return of the Vintage Collection of toys.
  • Darth Vader nearly had his own spa on Mustafar in Rogue One.
  • And more!

Star Wars Celebration Orlando was a huge success, and while you can read our news recap of everything you need to know, this slickly-produced official video from the Star Wars YouTube channel is a heartwarming reminder of the joyful fandom that loves these movies so dearly.

Star Wars Celebration crowd 2017

Speaking of Celebration, JediNews reports that this year’s event has set a new record as the most highly-attended Star Wars Celebration ever with more than 70,000 attendees. That’s more than the average attendance of an NFL football game. Nice going, fellow nerds!

During an interview, erstwhile Anakin Skywalker actor Hayden Christensen was asked about his true feelings about sand, since his character famously whined about how “irritating” it is in Attack of the Clones. But Christensen was game to answer, and seemed like he had a good sense of humor about it.

If you like original Star Wars radio dramas (and honestly, who doesn’t?), GeekTyrant points us to the full performance of Smuggler’s Revenge, which filmmaker Kyle Newman (Fanboys) directed a live reading of on stage at Celebration. Cast members included David Collins, Catherine Taber, Tom Kane, Vanessa Marshall, Steve Blum, Mathew Wood, Sam Witwer, and Warwick Davis himself in a story about Han Solo set between the events of A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.

The Last Jedi Bits: Kylo Ren’s Scar, Poster Jokes, Finn and Poe’s Bromance, and More

Star Wars The Last Jedi Finn

In this edition of The Last Jedi Bits:

  • The controversy surrounding Kylo Ren’s scar.
  • The mines on the film’s new planet, Crait.
  • Tons of Photoshopped jokes involving The Last Jedi poster.
  • Finn and Poe’s ongoing bromance.
  • Was that Yoda in a brief shot in the trailer?
  • And more!

star wars the last jedi trailer 6 leia

In the wake of the film’s teaser release at last week’s Star Wars Celebration, The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson jumped on Twitter to answer a ton of fan questions. StarWarsNewsNet did a fairly comprehensive round-up, but I think most relevant answer to what we’ve seen already was that Johnson isn’t sure yet if all of the images from the teaser will make it into the final cut since he’s still editing.

Kylo Ren scar comparison

Here’s a fun little mini-controversy for you. A Reddit user pointed out in the image above that Kylo Ren’s scar looks totally different in The Force Awakens than it does in The Last Jedi teaser, but when Johnson was asked about that, he says the scar isn’t in a different place:

Looks like he was joking, though, because a couple of days later, he copped to the fact that changing the location of Kylo’s scar was actually his idea (via io9):

He’s got a point there.

The latest episode of The Star Wars Show features an interview with Johnson, who speaks very highly of The Last Jedi’s team:

“Everyone here is in it for the right reasons and approaching this from the right mindset. And everyone who loves Star Wars should feel really, really confident about the entire creative team that’s come forward to make this next round of movies happen.”

Considering the way people lost their damn minds after seeing that teaser, I think fandom is extremely confident in Johnson’s ability to deliver an excellent sequel.

Star Wars The Last Jedi

StarWarsNewsNet also has a couple of behind the scenes photos from Bolivia, which is the filming location for the movie’s new planet, Crait. We know Crait is a mineral planet with mines on it, and the site also speculates that the ships that face off against the First Order in that scene from the teaser may be there to mine kyber crystals. Is Crait another source of those ancient crystals, like Rogue One’s Jedha? It’s certainly possible.

Artist Eric Stafford animated the film’s teaser poster, and the results are pretty freakin’ cool. I’ve always wondered why studios don’t put display screens in multiplexes and have official animated versions of their posters going at all times.

Sequel Bits: ‘Kingsman 2,’ ‘Blade Runner 2049,’ ‘Jurassic World 2,’ ‘Avatar’ Sequels

Kingsman Golden Circle Channing Tatum

In this edition of Sequel Bits:

  • New Kingsman: The Golden Circle pictures feature a suave Taron Egerton and Channing Tatum.
  • Barkhad Abdi sheds light on his Blade Runner 2049 character.
  • Chris Pratt hints at a “darker” Jurassic World 2.
  • Zoe Saldana teases the next four Avatar sequels.
  • Disney unveils Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales international posters.
  • Empire has a stylish limited edition cover of Alien: Covenant.
  • New French posters of Cars 3 race online.

Kingsman Golden Circle Channing Tatum 6 Kingsman Golden Circle Taran Egerton 5 Kingsman Golden Circle 3 Kingsman Golden Circle 2 Halle Berry Kingsman Golden Circle 1 Taran Egerton Kingsman Golden Circle Channing Tatum 7

The American equivalent of the posh British spies in Kingsman: The Golden Circle are as red, white and blue as you can get without actually donning the colors. Channing Tatum plays a lasso-wielding, cowboy-hat-wearing spy named Agent Tequila from the American Statesman organization, who Taron Egerton’s Eggsy must team up with in order to defeat a new ruthless enemy.

Halle Berry and Jeff Bridges also make suave, button-downed appearances in the new photos for the Kingsman: The Secret Service sequel — yes, that is a beardless, nearly unrecognizable Bridges frowning while sipping whisky.

Barkhad Abdi Captain Phillips

Barkhad Abdi, the villainous star from Captain Phillips, finally revealed the character he’ll be playing in Denis Villeneuve‘s Blade Runner sequel, set decades after Ridley Scott’s original film. Abdi will be playing a “totally deformed” scientist, he told the Hollywood Reporter, though he was vague on whether he’d be helping or hindering Ryan Gosling‘s Officer K in the search for Harrison Ford‘s Rick Deckard. Abdi will be joining a cast that also includes Robin Wright, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto.

jurassic world

Jurassic World may have had some shocking and brutal moments for a blockbuster film, but Chris Pratt promises that the sequel will be even “darker.” He points to Jurassic World 2 director J.A. Bayona’s expertise in the horror realm — the Spanish director’s first film was horror film The Orphanage — as a sign that the dinosaur sequel will be upping the stakes and the scares. At a press junket for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Pratt told ScreenRant:

Aw man, J.A. Bayona? Do you know that filmmaker? He’s a remarkable filmmaker. If you haven’t seen The Impossible or A Monster Calls, I mean he’s really visually masterful. Deep emotions and suspense. I think it’s going to be a scarier version. A little bit darker and will continue to expand and carry the story forward in a way that is really unexpected and you wouldn’t have imagined.

Avatar 2 Release Date

The long wait is over for the Avatar sequels, according to star Zoe Saldana. Saldana, who stars as the blue-skinned Na’vi princess Neytiri, confirmed to ScreenRant that not only will Cameron and crew begin filming Avatar 2 this summer — co-star Sigourney Weaver had recently confirmed a fall start date with some excitement, but who’s keeping track — but they will start work on the next three sequels as well. Zaldana said:

“We haven’t shot it yet. Anything I can tell you about Avatar 2,3,4,5? We’re going to start this summer. Late summer, and it’s probably going to go all the way until early next year shooting, and I’m really excited about it.”
