MTV MOVIE NEWS — DAISY RIDLEY KNOWS AS MUCH AS WE DO ABOUT THE TITLE OF STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII

Daisy Ridley may be one of the leading players in the next film to join the Star Wars franchise, but she's just like us when it comes to some crucial details. Specifically, she has absolutely zero clue as to what Episode VIII is gonna be called, and she has even less of a clue as to when we're going to finally figure it out.

In an interview with the My Dad Wrote A Porno podcast, Ridley mentioned that she heard a potential title for the flick back before they started shooting it, and now that the filming of the movie is complete, she isn't sure that that's the title — or when the Star Wars team will share it with audiences.

"I heard the title a long time ago before we started filming, and so I feel some things have slightly tweaked during production," she told My Dad Wrote A Porno's Jamie Morton, James Cooper, and Alice Levine. "It’s going to be a while before it’s released, I imagine."

Well... dammit. We already know that Episode VIII is set to show us plenty about the new characters we met in The Force Awakens, so hopefully a clue or two about the title will reveal more info soon enough.

"Fanclubdis es Noticias" - Star Wars Celebration: Updates on Episode VIII and young Han Solo movie.

Episode VIII and the young Han Solo headlined the closing event of Star Wars Celebration on Sunday.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and story group chief Kiri Hart joined with Episode VIII writer-director Rian Johnson and Han Solo filmmakers Chris Miller and Phil Lord to present a tease of what fans can epect in the years ahead from the galaxy far, far away.
As the program began, Kennedy had this praise for Johnson. “I don’t say this about many people, but I think Rian moves the camera as well as Steven Spielberg.”
Then Johnson came out and said it was challenging to begin writingVIII while VII was still finishing. While still developing the idea for the movie, he urged the story group to watch the Gregory Peck fighter pilot drama Twelve O’Clock HighThe Bridge on the River Kwai,Gunga DinThree Outlaw Samurai, and Humphrey Bogart’s Sahara.

“This movie is going to start right were the last one left off,” Johnson said. “That final scene in VII, I want to see what happens next.”

EPISODE VIII

Johnson said it was important not to let his awe at directing a Star Wars movie get in the way of making a good one.
“It was an incredible experience on many different levels,” said Johnson, who is near the end of principle photography. “You come into it with nostalgic feelings, but your job is to get beyond that very quickly. The ultimate responsibility is to sit in front of Mark [Hamill], sit in front of Luke Skywalker … and then get to know Mark as an actor and start working on a script and get back to the work of filmmaking.”
He said The Force Awakens launched the new story with a bang, but “second film is where we start zooming in on the characters and getting to the heart of them, challenging them, and pushing them deeper.”

YOUNG HAN SOLO

‘Star Wars’: J.J. Abrams Possibly Reveals Major Spoiler About Rey’s Parents

Rey Parents Star Wars 
 

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ director J.J. Abrams just dropped a BIG clue about Rey’s parents. He later clarified his comments, but his words are very telling.

Did J.J. Abrams just knock out key characters as the potential parents of Rey? Kind of. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens director spoke out about the ongoing debate about Rey’s parents and seemingly revealed a huge spoiler. But there’s a catch!

“Rey’s parents are not in Episode VII,” J.J. told the audience during a Q&A session at the Tribeca Film Festival. “So I can’t possibly say in this moment who they are. But I will say it is something that Rey thinks about, too.”

With those words, J.J. essentially eliminated Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo as Rey’s potential parents. There are a number of theories going around, and those three characters were at the top of the list. However, J.J. later tried to clear up what he said.

“What I meant was that she doesn’t discover them in Episode VII,” J.J. clarified to Entertainment Weekly. “Not that they may not already be in her world.”

Well, well, well. Could J.J. just be trying to make up for leaking a major spoiler?! Possibly. The director admitted that it wasn’t his place to reveal spoilers about Episode VIII. “Obviously it’s not for me to talk about in this moment because this is Rian [Johnson]’s story to continue now,” J.J. said.

J.J.’s initial comments give more proof that Rey’s mom is actually Rogue One’s Jyn Erso. That’s the currently theory taking over the internet. There’s a lot of evidence that supports Jyn and Rey are mother and daughter.

HollywoodLifers, who do you think Rey’s parents are? Let us know your theories below!

New LEGO Star Wars Series Headed to Disney XD This Summer



With Star Wars: The Force Awakens breaking every conceivable box office record, Star Wars properties having a pronounced presence in the Parks, and the first anthology film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, opening this Christmas, it is a great time to be a Star Wars fan. And it just got better: Today it was announced that LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, an all-new animated series, will be coming to Disney XD this summer.

This new series will center around the Freemakers, a “family of scavengers who build and sell starships from the scoured debris of space battles strewn throughout the galaxy.” When the youngest Freemaker discovers an ancient lightsaber, the family is “thrown into an epic struggle against the empire to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy.” And yes, “familiar characters” will make appearances alongside all-new heroes and villains.


“We are very excited to launch, for the first time, a TV series with Disney XD,” Jill Wilfert, vice president, licensing & entertainment at the LEGO Group, said in an official statement. “The creative team behind The Freemaker Adventures is extremely talented, and the series is a great testament to our longstanding and successful partnership with Lucasfilm and Disney. The show masterfully combines the rich heritage of storytelling, great characters, action, and adventure in a galaxy far, far away with the creativity, imagination and humor that only LEGO Star Wars can deliver. We are sure fans young and old are going to love the show.”


Carrie Beck, vice president of animation development at Lucasfilm added: “We are embarking on an unprecedented collaboration that will allow us to extend the narrative experience of the Star Wars saga with the same playful spirit that’s always made LEGO Star Wars so much fun to watch. We are so thankful to have such great partners in the LEGO Group, Disney XD, and series developers Bill Motz and Bob Roth (Penguins of Madagascar).”


If you’ve ever played a LEGO Star Wars game (LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out in June!) or watched one of the LEGO Star Wars limited series or specials, then you know the kind of irreverent fun that will undoubtedly be a part of this brand new series. Disney XD is already home to the excellent Star Wars Rebels animated series, which concludes its second season in late spring, and we couldn’t be more excited for this brand new animated outing. The Force is definitely strong with this one.
