Hasbro announce new Star Wars figures at SDCC

During a presentation at Comic-Con today, Hasbro revealed a number of upcoming Star Wars toys, from their Black Series range of action figures. These include; Obi-Wan Kenobi, Emperor’s Royal Guard, Lando Calrissian, Qui-Gon Jinn, Tusken Raider and Hera. 

We also got a glimpse at some of the 3.75” figures, which feature Hera with her A-Wing, Poe Dameron and Snowtrooper two-pack, Fenn Rau, and recently announced new addition to Rebels, Grand Admiral Thrawn. 

Star Wars episode VIII delayed 

Star Wars: Episode VIII was due for a worldwide release in May 2017 but instead will not be released until December of the same year. Disney haven’t yet said why the film is being delayed, but rumours started to grow this week about possible re-writes due to the semi-backlash the force awakens received. 

Production is set to begin next month at Pinewood Studios. 

Personally, I’m happy to wait for December. December just feels right for a Star Wars movie. I grew up in the 80’s, where the original trilogy played on ITV every Christmas. So to me, Star Wars has always been something that airs at Christmas. 

With Rogue One also set for a December release, I think Disney should concentrate on putting all the Star Wars movies out at this time of year.

Rumour:Rogue one post-credit scene

Our friends over at Schmoes Know (Well, we wish they were our friends) are speculating that LucasFilm, will be pulling a Marvel and giving us some end credit goodness after Star Wars:The Force Awakens.

According to their source, we’ll see some footage from Gareth Edwards Rogue One:A Star Wars story. I trust schmoes know, they’re normally pretty spot-on when it comes to this type of stuff. Click on the above link to read more.

 

The Force Awakens arrives in the UK on December 17th.

Mads Mikkelsen’s rogue one character revealed?

It was revealed a few weeks ago that Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen would play a “crucial role” in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Now it seems that we may have a clue as to whom he is playing. As you can see in the image below, he signed the poster ‘Galen’. Fans of the Star Wars video games will already be familiar with the name Galen, Galen Marek was a secret apprentice of Darth Vader whom went by the name Starkiller.

Finn takes on Kyle Ren

Lucasfilm have released a very brief Instagram video for The Force Awakens.
It shows glimpses of new footage from the film, but the most interesting part is that it shows who Kylo is powering up his lightsabre to fight. He’s about to fight Finn, whom is using what appears to be Anakin/Luke’s lightsabre.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released worldwide on December 18th, 2015.
