John Boyega Teases “Visually Crazy” Moment in ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’

John Boyega has witnessed some pretty wild things on Star Wars movie sets: the Poe Dameron-led X-wing rescue on Takodana, Han Solo’s death, and Luke Skywalker’s incredible reveal at the end of The Last Jedi. But all of that apparently pales in comparison to the “visually crazy” moment Boyega is teasing in J.J. Abrams‘ upcoming Star Wars: Episode 9.

How Long After ‘The Last Jedi’ Does ‘Star Wars Episode 9’ Take Place? John Boyega Has the Answer

As has become customary with any new Star Wars saga film, very little is known about what is coming in the final chapter of the Skywalker saga. Star Wars Episode 9 is currently in production, and very few secrets are making their way on to the web, which isn’t surprising since Mark Hamill recently compared the secrecy surrounding the franchise as something akin to being in the CIA. But with rumblings of a teaser trailer not far off, one new detail has emerged about the Star Wars Episode 9 setti...

‘Star Wars Episode 9’ Secrecy is Like Being in the CIA, Says Mark Hamill

It’s no secret that secrets of Star Wars must be kept secret, for fear of the secrets secreting and ruining everything (especially the secrets). But the secrecy around Star Wars has gotten even more extreme than you might realize. There are criminals in movies that get transferred between prisons that don’t have as much security as the secrets of Star Wars. Star Wars saga star Mark Hamill has been around since the beginning of the franchise, and it should come as no surprise that the secrecy su...

‘Star Wars Episode 9’ May Feature an Ed Sheeran Cameo

According to a new report, superstar singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran has locked down a small part in J.J. Abrams‘ upcoming Star Wars: Episode 9. You may recall that Sheeran, already a four-time Grammy Award winner at age 27, cameoed in one of pop culture’s biggest properties last year: he showed up on an episode of Game of Thrones playing a Lannister soldier in a scene with Maisie Williams’ Arya. (Williams is a big fan, which is why the showrunners brought him on for the cameo.) Now it looks like ...

‘Star Wars: Episode 9’ Rumors: Luke’s Lightsaber, the Knights of Ren, and More

Filming continues on Star Wars: Episode 9 over at Pinewood Studios in London, but even as Lucasfilm and Disney’s grip on spoilers for the film tightens, rumors inevitably make their way back across the pond. A few new Star Wars Episode 9 rumors suggest plot details that could fly in the face of the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi or further expand the universe in ways we don’t expect. Let’s dive into those rumors below and beware of potential spoilers. Rey Will Be Using Luke’s Lightsabe...

Kevin Smith Raves About His Experience Visiting ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ Set, Singles Out One Amazing Performance

Writer/director/podcaster Kevin Smith has visited J.J. Abrams‘ Star Wars Episode 9 set, and he hated every second of it. “It was dumb,” Smith said of the set. “I looked around, shrugged my shoulders, and said, ‘This is the best you got?’ I interrupted J.J. in the middle of a take and just said, ‘Hey man, thanks for the invite, but this sucks. I’m outta here.'” I’m kidding, of course. Smith, as rabid a Star Wars fan as you’ll ever find, brought back several tidbits from his travels to the film’s...

New ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’ Rumors Focus on Kylo Ren’s Wardrobe and a New Droid Buddy

Star Wars: Episode 9 is still shooting across the pond at Pinewood Studios, and since J.J. Abrams is back behind the camera and this is the last installment of the new Star Wars trilogy, the shroud of mystery is wrapped tighter than ever around the production. But that’s not stopping a few little rumored tidbits from leaking onto the web every now and then. Some feel totally bogus while others might have some weight to them. In the case of two new Star Wars Episode 9 rumors, one could be proble...

‘Star Wars: Episode 9’ Handles Carrie Fisher’s Death in a “Beautiful Way,” Oscar Isaac Says

It’s unclear how Star Wars: Episode 9 will handle Carrie Fisher’s tragic passing, but we do know that  through the use of unused Star Wars: The Last Jedi footage, General Leia Organa will appear onscreen one last time. And star Oscar Isaac assures us that in the film, Leia’s arc and Fisher’s passing will be handled in “a really beautiful way.” In an interview with The Daily Beast while promoting At Eternity’s Gate, Isaac spoke about Fisher’s death, which sent reverberations among the Star Wa...

Carrie Fisher’s Brother Talks Leia’s “Magical” Return in ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’

In April of 2017, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said that the late Carrie Fisher would not appear in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode 9, despite the claims of Todd Fisher, Carrie’s brother. But it looks like Todd ended up being right in the long run, because the production ultimately figured out a way to include General Leia after all by utilizing unused footage that was shot during the making of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In a recent interview, Todd Fisher...

A ‘Star Wars’ Without Skywalkers: Where Should the Galaxy Go After ‘Episode 9’?

The final shot of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a Force-sensitive stable boy gazing up at the stars, echoes Luke Skywalker watching the dual sunset on Tatooine. Separated from the original film by 40 years and an ever-widening mythology — one that’s focused largely on a single lineage — the closing moments of Episode VIII brought the saga back to its roots, in a way. As far as anyone knew in 1977, Luke was the last remaining Skywalker. Darth Vader was not his father. Leia was not his sister, and...

Crushingly Plausible ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’ Theory Unmasks Rey’s Parents

After Star Wars: The Force Awakens took great pains to establish the mystery of Rey’s parentage, Rian Johnson came along with Star Wars: The Last Jedi and created one of the all-time best mic drop moments in the franchise’s history: Rey’s parents are nobodies. It was a reveal that clearly removed the film’s heroine from a famous family lineage, making it clear that heroes don’t need a specific last name to be one of the most important figures in a galaxy far, far away. But this new Star Wars Ep...

‘Star Wars: Episode 9’ Will Also Utilize Unused ‘Last Jedi’ Footage of Carrie Fisher

When the Star Wars: Episode 9 cast was announced, the line-up included a big surprise: Carrie Fisher. Fisher died before the release of The Last Jedi, and many assumed her character, Leia Organa, wouldn’t be featured in the next film. According to the Episode 9 cast announcement, director J.J. Abrams plans to utilize unused Force Awakens footage of Fisher. Now, Fisher’s brother is claiming the film will also employ additional, unused Last Jedi footage as well.

Which ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Deleted Scenes Could Be Used for Carrie Fisher’s Return in ‘Episode 9’?

But there was one returning legacy character that was rather surprising: Carrie Fisher as General Leia. Carrie Fisher sadly passed away in December of 2016, which resulted in a massive overhaul of what was origi...

Mark Hamill Shaved His Beard, So ‘Star Wars Episode 9’ Speculation is Off the Charts

Production on Star Wars: Episode 9 is gearing up across the pond as J.J. Abrams prepares to shoot the latest installment of the Skywalker saga that began all the way back in 1977. Of course, details on what the Force Awakens director has in store for the end of the primary Star Wars storyline are under tight wraps, so that leaves fans wildly speculating about facial hair. Mark Hamill recently took to Twitter to show off a new Sideshow Collectibles item that he was adding to his collection. The ...
