The Star Wars Thread

Recommended Posts


The force is not strong with this one -- and not only because he's not a Jedi ... but Harrison Ford was injured today on the set of "Star Wars: Episode VII."

 

A Disney rep confirms Ford injured his ankle and was taken to a local hospital.

 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, he was hit by a door on the Millennium Falcon ... which, as TMZ first showed you, is making its triumphant return to the franchise.

 

The Disney rep added that 71-year-old Harrison's injury will not affect the shooting schedule for the movie.

I hope these old fuckers are actually old in the film, not pretending to be young still and doing stuff, because old people just need to be isolated and studied so it can be determined what nutrients can be extracted for our own personal use.

I kind of hope that the new characters aren't direct decedents of the original cast.

 

Like, 'it's us...and literally all our kids on an adventure B) "

 

That would be p lame

Pretty sure that's exactly what it is.

 

The Force is hereditary, so since pretty much all of the Jedi are dead, it is up to Luke and Leia to repopulate the Jedi all over the galaxy.

 

Luke especially best get busy with that other saber if you know what I mean.

I thought there would be a character that was the son of Leia and Han Solo but that Luke would be living the Kenobi/Yoda monk life and training people from all over to be Jedi.

 

And the old characters won't be front and center.

unless you mean literally harrison ford's/carrie fisher's/mark hamill's real life children.I thought that's what this was. Wasn't Carrie fisher's actual daughter cast?

The old people are basically Spock in the last two ST movies. Barely needed but draws in old fans.

They don't realize Harrison Ford appears incapable of acting like Han solo anymore

From what I understand, old Han Solo had a major story arc in the first movie, which would help tie it into the first spinoff movie about the adventures of young Han Solo. Whereas Luke is, as mentioned, kinda on the side.

 

A broken leg might force a pretty massive rewrite.

 

Fucking old people. Harrison Ford seems like a full on cranky old man at this point.

 

I'm totally going to see these movies the second they come out.

My cousin has flown planes with Harrison ford IRL

 

I imagine anyone who's make the Kessel run in less than 9 parsecs would be an absolute know-it-all in the cockpit.

 

Pretty sure I botched that reference, I'm not as nerdy as I pretend to be. But you get the idea.

Update on some guy's set visit:

 

 

 

Kevin Smith was doing a Q&A at the Neuchatel International Film Festival in Switzerland, where he shared even more bits about his Episode 7 set visit…

 

 

Here’s an excerpt from the Q&A via /Film:


What I saw, I absolutely loved. It was tactile — it was real. It wasn’t a series of fucking green screens and blue screens in which later a bunch of digital characters would be added. IT was there, it was happening. I saw old friends who I haven’t seen since my childhood, who aren’t really friends, but I love them more than some of my fucking relatives. I saw uniforms, I saw artillery I haven’t seen since I was a kid. I saw them shooting an actual sequence in a set that was real. I walked across the set, there were explosions. And it looked like a shot right out of a Star Wars movie.

 

Smith talked about visiting Stage M at pinewood, where they were not filming that day, where he visited the set of the Millennium Falcon:


He turns the lights on and there is the Millennium Falcon from my childhood. Now the ship outside looks like a movie set, but the inside, fully replicated, fully built. The guy told me, they took two blueprints: Star Wars and Empire, because the cockpit in Empire was bigger than the cockpit in Star Wars. So they went somewhere between the two. So he takes me over and I’m just looking at it. You look at it from the outside and you can still see inside. I don’t presume we’re going aboard or anything, and then Morgan (JJ’s assistant) says “You ready to go up?” I said (excitedly) “We can go on it?!”

As I walked up that ramp I realized that the something that was missing from those other movies (the prequels) and its now in these movies. And its not the obvious like hey the Millennium Falcon or hey the characters that we know are returning. Its something else entirely — he’s building a tactile world, a world you can touch. And hes replicating with all the love of someone who has the world’s greatest collection of Star Wars figures. And when you walk on that set man, I don’t know how else to describe it except thusly: you use another pop culture reference to describe this pop culture phenomenon. Its like the field of dreams, the Kevin Costner movie. And if JJ builds it, we’re all going to come hard, because its amazing. It looks fantastic. So anyone out there wondering if hes going to pull it off, hes pulling it off. He showed me cut scenes, he showed me sequences, images, pictures. I cried and I hugged that guy. And I’m sure as I was crying and hugging on him that he was thinking “time is money” because theyre making a movie. But he got it. He was very flattered. And I was like “Honestly dude, you’re doing it. You’re making my childhood again. You’re doing our Star Wars. What I saw, blew me away.
