Are you patiently waiting for the new Last Jedi trailer? Well, this isn’t the trailer but AMC recently revealed some interesting information about the film. AMC has listed the run time for The Last Jedi at two hours and thirty minutes. If their listing is correct, The Last Jedi is the longest Star Wars film to date. Currently, Attack of the Clones is the longest film in the saga with a run time of two hours and twenty-two minutes.

Well, we have all heard by now that JJ Abrams has taken over for Colin Trevorrow as the Director of Episode IX, but THR also found out that he basically screwed over Paramount and a 10-Million Dollar obligation in order to take on the Star Wars project. You can read more about it at TheHollywoodReporter.com. Geeze, drama has become constanty associated with Disney’s Star Wars movies! (although TLJ has been pretty smooth, knock on wood!)
Rian Johnson has formally announced that Episode VIII has finally wrapped post production. Talkies Network has the full story!
THERE IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE! StarWars.com has updated their original story to note that Episode IX will now be released in theaters December 20, 2019.
BREAKING NEWS! JJ Abrams will write and direct Star Wars Episode IX! StarWars.com has the full story! Chris Terrio will co-write.
Colin Trevorrow’s dismissal from Star Wars: Episode IX has left Lucasfilm and Kathleen Kennedy searching for a replacement, and it looks like they may turn to a familiar face. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rian Johnson and J.J. Abrams are the top choices to replace Trevorrow. Furthermore, their sources indicate that continued issues with the script led to the Trevorrow’s dismissal. At the moment, Rian Johnson seems like the most likely candidate. Johnson is a well respected writer and may be better suited to finish the script. The word is that Johnson was a perfect fit for The Last Jedi and had a seamless working relationship with Lucasfilm. It makes sense that Lucasfilm would want to work with him again. What do you think about the possibility of Rian Johnson or J.J. Abrams returning to direct Episode IX? Let us Know!
This is what happens when a vision becomes a fabrication. Colin Trevorrow is OUT as director for Episode IX. Every last Disney Star Wars film has experienced turmoil. Now the second Disney Star Wars film has had a director replaced. This should come as no surprise, but dang if this isn’t shocking!
Star Wars Rebels is set to start its final season on October 16th. Check out trailer #2, just released today.
If you went out to Toys R Us’ Force Friday II event, you were given a poster which features multiple TIE Bombers in the scene. This has no relation to The Empire Strikes Back, so don’t even go there. Special thanks to The Bot for the image.
Marcia Lucas, who won an Oscar for editing the first Star Wars, has rarely talked about her experience working on the film or her relationship with her ex-husband George Lucas. Many have pointed out her importance during the early days of the saga and that her contributions remain underappreciated. Athena Studios interviewed Marcia, along with Emmy-winning editor Duwayne Dunham, at the 40th Anniversary ILM reunion in May. In the interview she talks about Star Wars, George, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and more. Click through to watch the full interview!
As we all know, wipe transitions are almost as synonymous with Star Wars as Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader, but when The Force Awakens was released it may have been a little light on the famous transitions (not that it would’ve changed the quality of the film..yes, I kept that ambiguous lol). However, we now have found out that The Last Jedi may be following suit. More on this after the jump!
Described by them as a gorilla and as a deadly slice of pizza respectively, io9 posts scoop via The Star Wars Show that reveals two new The Last Jedi vehicles that resemble nothing similar to The Empire Strikes Back’s Imperial AT-AT and Super Star Destroyer. Not at all, so don’t even try to make the comparisons. I am warning you. It’s NOTHING like Episode V. Check out the article, but then again, don’t if you don’t want a trip back to the future…. or spoilers. Special thank to JTA reader and friend Tom C. for alerting us to this article.
Forces Of Destiny is slated to return with new episodes this October. The writer of the animated series, Jennifer Murro, recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss some info on the series and what we can expect from the new episodes. Many sources are calling this season 2, however, I believe it is still season 1 similar to how they took breaks from Rebels. Read the THR interview with Jennifer Murro here!
Michael Kenneth Williams (The Wire) was among the most exciting cast members to join the still untitled Han Solo film. Unfortunately, the actor revealed in an interview with Deadline that his role has been cut from the film. Williams told Deadline, “When Ron Howard got hired to finish out the film, there were some reshoot issues that needed to be done in regards to my character, in order for it to match the new direction which the producers wanted Ron to carry the film in.” Williams is currently filming The Red Sea Diving Resort in South Africa and was unavailable for the reshoots. Instead of pushing back the Han Solo film to accommodate his schedule, Williams’ role was cut altogether. His character was described as “half-human, half-animal.” Head over to Deadline to read the full interview!
The Hollywood Reporter recently broke the news that the long rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone film is finally in development. Click through to read our breakdown of this news and our thoughts on the future of the standalone films.
That’s right! After much speculation and many rumors, Lucasfilm has confirmed today that Ewan McGregor will HOPEFULLY get a chance to reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi for the now confirmed Obi-Wan standalone film. So far, Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) is in talks for a director. I wonder why Disney didn’t take the opportunity at D23 to officially announce it like most expected. You can read more about it from The Hollywood Reporter. I know I am excited about this, how about you?
Earlier this week, Disney announced plans to launch their own streaming service in 2019. The new service would include existing content and original programming, following the Netflix model. Disney has opted to end it’s existing distribution deal with Netflix. Beginning with their 2019 releases such as Toy Story 4, Disney’s proposed streaming service will be home to all upcoming Disney movies. While this deal will include Disney’s live action and animated films and upcoming Pixar releases, the company’s Star Wars and Marvel films were not mentioned. According and to a report from TechCrunch, Disney CEO Bob Iger said they are still considering how to integrate Marvel and Lucasfilm titles and that they may launch their own standalone streaming services. What do you think about the possibility of an all Star Wars streaming service? Would you pay for a one stop shop for Star Wars content? Let us know!

Jedi Master and Jedi trainee on a far-off distant location interacting with one another. Check. Interwoven story lines of the struggles of the freedom fighters against an evil empire as they continue to battle for freedom. Check. A squad of heroes escape madness for a while as they head to a different glamorous planet. Check. No, we’re not talking about Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back despite sounding just like it. These are actual plot points for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. Rian Johnson said Episode VIII isn’t a reboot of Episode V, but the latest article at EW.com seems to contradict this quite a bit. Click through for more.
This deal is getting worse all the time. This is a broken man. One who would have preferred to stay lost. And he feels the same way about that lightsaber. “The fact that Luke says, ‘I only know one truth. It’s time for the Jedi to end…’ I mean, that’s a pretty amazing statement for someone who was the symbol of hope and optimism in the original films,” Mark Hamill tells EW. Your comments please. Check out the full story at Entertainment Weekly.
Two apparently! As we’ve all expected since the announcement of Ron Howard coming in to finish the still untitled Han Solo film, he has supposedly found a role for his brother Clint according to his Twitter comment. That shouldn’t be too hard in a Star Wars film considering he isn’t the most conventional look actor as he himself poked fun at in The Waterboy. You can read more about this on Variety.
You won’t be disappointed
