Disney CEO Announces New Live Action Star Wars Show

Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger has announced a new live action Star Wars series for the upcoming Disney Streaming service; Disney+. The show - which will go into production next year - will focus on Rebel Intelligence Officer Cassian Andor and his missions for the Rebel Alliance before the events of Rogue One.

Now here's the really good news...Diego Luna will be returning to the role. Luna told StarWars.com:
Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me. I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey.adding
We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.
The only question that remains is; will K-2SO be joining Andor on his adventures? The Imperial Enforcement droid was captured by Andor and reprogrammed to serve the rebellion. He was played in Rogue One by Alan Tudyk (Dodgeball, I, Robot, Firefly). I personally would like to see b…

Rogue One: Average Guy Movie Review

For many, Christmas has come early with the arrival of 2016's most anticipated movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The events described in the opening crawl of A New Hope have been brought to life by British Director Gareth Edwards. Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) is recruited by the Rebel Alliance to find her father Galen (Mads Mikkelsen), the man responsible for designing the Death Star in an attempt to secure a copy of the plans for the super-weapon. Backing her up are a Rebel Intelligence Officer, Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and his reprogrammed Imperial Enforcement Droid, K-2SO (Alan Tudyk), as well as warriors Chirrut Imwe (Donnie Yen) and Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen) and former Imperial Pilot Bodhi Rook (Riz Ahmed). Ben Mendelsohn plays Orson Krennic, Director of Advanced Weapons Research, the Imperial Officer overseeing construction of the Death Star and the one trying to prevent the theft of the plans.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Official Trailer 2

The final trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has landed (watch it below), and what an epic trailer it is! Last year Episode 7 made for a very Merry Christmas indeed and it looks like Disney will deliver the same with Rogue One this year.
I'm not going to go on and on, I want you to watch the trailer. But Star Wars looks to be returning to the glory of its heyday, and what a story to do it with. After almost 40 years we will finally see how Princess Lea got hold of the Death Star plans. Clearly a lot of hard work and dedication have been put in to this project and I look forward to seeing the final result. If Rogue One is a success, will we get to see (and I'm paraphrasing here) many Bothans die to bring us the plans for Death Star 2? A little morbid I know but what the hell.
Until then enjoy Rogue One's Trailer 2 and get excited for its release in December. Let us know what you think of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story by leaving a comment below or find us on FaceBook and …

Moustache Trailer Reactions

Doctor Strange



The teaser trailer for Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange has arrived, and what does it tell us? Not a lot really, it's more about intrigue and the scale and spectacle. I know a teaser trailer is only supposed to provide small pieces of information, I've said this myself enough times, but I think they took the word snippet and ran with it! Maybe the creators wanted the trailer to feel broken, just like Strange's hands, and Strange himself. Stephen Strange was a man who'd found purpose, something he was good at. As a surgeon he saved lives, but when a car accident badly damages his hands and robs him of his ability to perform surgery, he's lost. No doubt future trailers will help us put some of the pieces together, fans of the comics will have a pretty good idea of what's going on, although Marvel aren't afraid to change things when it comes to the MCU. Some might say the trailer is underwhelming, but I like the mysterious, broken feel t…
