Late this afternoon, during one of the most exciting moments in human history, when Space X launched the Falcon Heavy rocket, Lucasfilm decided to create a fireball of its own. The official site announced that GAME OF THRONES creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will be writing and producing a new series of Star Wars films.
It has been a long wait but the marketing for Solo: A Star Wars Story is finally in full swing. As promised last night during the Superbowl, the theatrical trailer was debuted during Good Morning America. The new trailer showcases a wonderful grit in its cinematography and serious tone in its score. I love this trailer and have high hopes for this film. This is the first character spin-off for the franchise so it’s performance at the box office is important. Rogue One proved that spin-off films outside of the episodic movies can be a lucrative adventure for Disney and Lucasfilm. However, character focuses projects can and will be risky. But with risk comes great rewards.
Enjoy the trailer folks, and please catch us tonight at 9:30 P.M. EST live during our LIVECAST!
Hello everyone and welcome to our fourth Star Wars Post Livecast. In this week’s episode, we discuss the latest in Star Wars news including the leaked images of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Join us and don’t forget to subscribe to us on Facebook and YouTube.
Talk about a delight to come home to! The fantastically awesome Andi Gutierrez and her Emmy nominated Star Wars Show had a special this evening hosted by some of the greatest storytellers at Lucasfilm. The panel featured the talented members of the Lucasfilm story group, Leeland Chee, Pablo Hidalgo, Matt Martin and Rayne Roberts. The group poured over the big easter eggs of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and gave us some really fun insight into the creation of that story.
One of the great joys for me has always been the creation side of these films. Since it’s not likely that we will see a “Making Of” book anytime soon, this thirty-minute show was a joy to watch. It’s the charming stories behind the scenes by real artists being themselves and cultivating their vision into a fantastic tale. I adore hearing Rayne speak about how Space bear became the project name for “The Last Jedi” and how Matt weaved in elements of Battlefront into Luke’s journey.
This special showcases the value-add of The Star Wars Show, and how important it is for the brand and the community they serve. If there ever was an example of getting the best bang for the buck, in delivering entertaining, intelligent insight loaded with sincere charm and love of Star Wars, this is it.
Trust me on this one kids, find thirty minutes and sit back and enjoy these amazing folks point out elements in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
