Rey’s Parentage Will Be Addressed In The Last Jedi

The Midi-Chlorian Center

Since The Force Awakens was released, fans have been wondering who Rey parents are and came up with many, many theories. Answers are finally coming this December. After The Last Jedi panel on Friday, the cast and crew were interviewed and Rian Johnson said Rey’s parentage will absolutely be addressed in the movie. At one point in the video when the journalist asked him if there will be clarification, he said “it depends …” before backtracking. It obviously doesn’t point to the confirmation of any theory but I’m sure it will launch fans into more speculation on some of the theories.

Another interesting interview is this one where Daisy Ridley talks about Rey and Luke and she mentions that when Luke sees her with his family…

Star Wars Rebels Final Season Trailer

The Midi-Chlorian Center

It is now official, season 4 is the last season of Star Wars Rebels, Dave Filoni made the announcement during the panel at Star Wars Celebration. All things must come to an end one day and it’s time for Rebels. This season will surely deliver great things and give us a beautiful conclusion to this series and it’s ending on Filoni’s own terms not like it was for The Clone Wars.

During the panel, a trailer for the final season was revealed and it’s amazing! You can watch it below:

Saw Gerrera is back with his look much more closer to how he is in Rogue One. As we knew it already Bo-Katan will be appearing this season in the Mandalorians episodes, which promise to be epic! Kallus is getting a new look, rebel costume! The X-Wing will also show up along with the rebel base on Yavin…

Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Jungle Cruise’ Disney Movie Is Official

If we’re going to have a movie based on a theme park ride, then at least it stars Dwayne Johnson. The Rock himself has been attached to a Jungle Cruise movie, based on the Disney adventure, since 2015, but the project has gone through a number of script rewrites and changes (which feels like a smart move). But Johnson is also a very busy actor, attached to so many projects it’s hard to keep up. Nevertheless, it looks like Jungle Cruise will get slotted into spring of 2018 to start production.

As THR reports, Johnson will again team up with Dany Garcia, his co-CEO of the production company Seven Bucks, which is also behind Ballers, Baywatch, the Jumanji remake. Now that a new Jungle Cruise script by J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay reportedly looks solid, it seems the Rock is ready,

Carrie Fisher May Still Appear in ‘Star Wars Episode IX’

Carrie Fisher. She represented the emotional core of the initial trilogy, as well as being a first-class action hero, and she was easily the arrival greeted with the most cacophonous applause in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Her scenes for Star Wars: The Last Jedi had been shot already at the time of her passing but the question remained: what about Episode IX? A few months ago, Lucasfilms said it had no plans to digitize her and put her in the last volume of this trilogy and that seemed like the right thing to do. Today, however, brings news that Fisher’s brother, Todd, and her daughter have given Disney the go-ahead to include Fisher in Episode IX.

At first, one might panic and think that they’re going to pull a Rogue One anyway and have   an animated human walking around amongst the real-life ones. That’s not the case. As it turns out, Disney, Lucasfilm, and Trevorrow are planning to use cut scenes from The Last Jedi to bring Fisher back into the fray for one last time. That’s what the family members told the New York Daily News in an interview yesterday, with Todd saying:

“Both of us were like, ‘Yes, how do you take her out of it?’ And the answer is you don’t…She’s as much a part of it as anything and I think her presence now is even more powerful than it was, like Obi Wan – when the saber cuts him down he becomes more powerful…I feel like that’s what’s happened with Carrie. I think the legacy should continue.“

If that’s the case, this could end up giving Fisher and General Leia a proper send-off from the franchise but I can’t help worrying that this ambition might feel awkward or misguided in the movie itself.

Review: Beauty and the Beast (2017)

MovieBabble

Disney has taken it upon themselves to give all their classic stories a face lift by making them into live-action films.  The next one on the list may just be the most popular Disney story of all: Beauty and the Beast.  The following review will be spoiler free.

Beauty and the Beast is directed by Bill Condon and stars Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, and Luke Evans.  The film is a re-imagining of the timeless story which follows Belle (Watson) as she is taken prisoner in a castle owned by a Beast (Stevens).  Despite her worries, Belle befriends the enchanted staff members of the castle and begins to learn that the Beast may not be as gruesome as he seems.  All the while, the treacherous Gaston (Evans) bans the townsfolk against the Beast in order to get rid of him once and for all.
