New ‘The Force Awakens’ Character Posters!

At the time of this writing there are 43 days 3 hours, and a handful of minutes left until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters.

That’s pretty much an eternity.

But fear not, fellow fans! We have some Star Wars porn to hold you over in the meantime, and it comes in the form of brand new character posters!

There’s a really obvious artistic motif going on with these posters, but even more obvious is the character who didn’t get one: Chewbacca.

Just kidding, you know we meant Luke.

At this point we’ve pretty much accepted the fact that we aren’t going to be seeing him until probably the third act of Force Awakens… oh well, at least we have a close up look at everyone else’s pores in the meantime.

Did you find any little hidden details in any of these posters? Let us know in the comments!

New ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Footage

New footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens is here!

Okay, I know you’re dying to see the footage, so lets nix the words and get straight to the good stuff.

Check out the new footage below!:

There has been an awakening… #StarWars #TheForceAwakens

A video posted by Star Wars (@starwars) on

Lets just stop replaying that footage for a moment to talk about that lightsaber that John Boyega‘s Finn is wielding. Now we’ve actually seen Finn with his lightsaber before (thanks to the official poster for the film), but this is the first time we’ve seen him with it in fluid cinematic motion.

The scene re-raises one big question that people have already been asking: who the hell is Finn?

He and Rey (Daisy Ridley’s character) are the only characters whose last names seem to be a huge secret, which probably is due to the fact that they both have familiar parentage. And if that’s the case, then that means that Finn is related to a character we already know.

But who?

Since he is able to wield a lightsaber, Finn may just have Jedi blood in his veins. Could he possibly be related to Mace Windu (who was portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson in the heavily criticized prequels)?

Having Finn related to Windu would tie in the prequels to the new film, but it may be unlikely considering how many Star Wars fans would prefer to block those three movies and the name Jar Jar Binks from their memory completely.

So… that leaves another important character in the Star Wars world: Lando Calrissian. Just in case you’ve forgotten (and shame on you if you did!) Lando was a smuggler turned Rebel leader. He was pretty much like Han Solo (who happened to be his close friend and ally).

But Lando doesn’t have any Jedi blood in him (as far as we know), so how could Finn wield a lightsaber if he is indeed related to him?

One word: awakening.

The film is called The Force Awakens, so it’s quite possible that normal people who previously had zero connections to Jedi’s (or Sith’s) have begun to develop the Force.

Reason being? Luke and his family are the only Jedi’s left, and their breed is on the verge of extinction, meaning that the Force would also become extinct. But the Force found a way to regain balance by reappearing in random people… kind of like when randos started to develop air bending in Avatar: Legend of Korra.

Another possibility as to who Finn could be? Nobody. Who says last names are mandatory anyways?

All will be revealed for sure when Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18.

Let us know your theories about Finn in the comments!

Han Solo Prequel Directors Announced!

A Han Solo prequel movie is in the works, and now the project finally has its directors!

Disney announced earlier today that the latest addition to the Star Wars anthology will be directed by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord.

Chances are if you’re unfamiliar with their names, you won’t be unfamiliar with their work: these are the guys that brought us The LEGO Movie, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street.

Miller and Lord shared this joint comment in the official press release:

“This is the first film we’ve worked on that seems like a good idea to begin with. We promise to take risks, to give the audience a fresh experience, and we pledge ourselves to be faithful stewards of these characters who mean so much to us. This is a dream come true for us. And not the kind of dream where you’re late for work and all your clothes are made of pudding, but the kind of dream where you get to make a film with some of the greatest characters ever, in a film franchise you’ve loved since before you can remember having dreams at all.”

The story will focus on a young Han Solo and will reveal just how he became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel that we first met in the cantina at Mos Eisley.

The screenplay will be written by Lawrence Kasdan and his son, Jon Kasdan.

Lawrence Kasdan is known best for writing Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Big Chill, and Grand Canyon. He has experience with the Star Wars universe as well,  having co-written the screenplays for The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Force Awakens.

Jon Kasdan wrote and directed The First Time, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and In the Land of Women.  He also was involved in the writing process for Freaks and Geeks and Dawson’s Creek.

There is no word yet on who will be cast as the young Solo, but it seems that the internet has already decided on an actor suitable to play Solo, and he comes with some galactic experience:

This is a rather obvious choice considering Pratt’s physical resemblance to Ford in his youth (not to mention how similar their screen personas are), but as awesome as this choice would be, it’s quite unlikely.

After all, Pratt is already Star Lord! He can’t monopolize all of the galaxies, far far away or not.

We probably won’t know who will be playing Solo for quite a while, as the untitled film is currently slated for a 2018 release.

Who do you think should play young Han Solo? Let us know in the comments below!
