8 Actors Have Been Shortlisted For The Role of Young Han Solo
Star Wars

The official shortlist to play a young Han Solo in Disney’s prequel Star Wars film includes: Miles Teller Ansel Elgort Dave Franco Jack Reynor Scott Eastwood Logan Lerman Emory Cohen Blake Jenner I however would have preferred actor Anthony Ingruber to play this role as he does killer impersonations of Han Solo on his YouTube channel, and he does look like a young Harrison Ford! NDAs and test deals are still being worked out, but producer Kathleen Kennedy and directors Phil Lord and...

The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978)
Star Wars

The Star Wars Holiday Special is a 1978 TV movie set in the Star Wars galaxy. The main storyline of the film focuses upon Chewbacca trying to return home to the planet of Kashyyyk for “Happy Life Day” (aka Christmas) to see his family. I won’t spoil the storyline but the Empire gets involved and Han and Chewie are delayed and an awkward, often downright horrible and creepy, musicial space saga ensues. Some say this is the worst piece of TV or film...

Star Wars

Well this was inevitable, I have already contributed to this massive haul by watching the movie 3 times in 48 hours. Star Wars: The Force Awakens has hit light-speed and now grossed an incredible $517 million. That’s thanks to a massive boost from an international debut of $279 million, and an estimated $238 million opening weekend in North America. However, the movie has fallen short of Jurassic World‘s $525 million worldwide debut, but we have to take into account that Jurassic World was released...

Star Wars

UFC superstar Ronda Rousey stepped out in her Stormtrooper outfit to watch Star Wars : The Force Awakens this weekend. Along side partner Travis Browne got his Mandalorian on as Boba Fett. Many epic fights have been seen during the Star Wars saga. If you could choose two Star Wars characters to battle out in the octagon who would it be? I think we need a caveat that we can’t mix characters with the force against those without otherwise Darth Maul could rear naked choke Jar...
