With still a few months until release, and with tickets flying off the internet shelves, the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer is here. And to say it is beautiful is an understatement to the nerdy loving eye. Behold the glory that is this new footage, for truly I believe this is the trailer you have been looking for: Continue reading Star Wars: The Force Awakens New Trailer Released
The time has arrived for one of the most anticipated images of 2015 to be released. Yep, that’s right, the official theatrical poster for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is here, and thank the maker, it is beautiful. And full of Geekette-approved power, too!
So, this weekend I was at ConnectiCon, a nerd gathering of smallish proportions in Hartford, CT. Ironically, a similar, yet much larger meeting was happening on the other coast–a little event you might know about called San Diego Comic Con. Yes, that is the one with all the movie sneak peeks, TV show panels, merchandise previews, and much much more. Though I did not attend the event, I was definitely on my phone, keeping myself up-to-date with the biggest stories, and as such I feel I can give you the (personal) coolest things I saw from this year’s SDCC….. online, at least.
SO, GEEKETTES–HAVE YOU WATCHED IT!? HAVE YOU!? Well, guessing by the fact you are reading this post, I’m gonna assume you haven’t. But, yes, if you couldn’t gather, Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser #2 has been released, and let me tell you that it is one of the best teasers I’ve ever seen. Watching the live stream that led up to this majestic, glorious piece of editing was everything this Star Wars nerd like me could have wished for and more. So, watch the trailer below, and let’s dive into the new adventures of a galaxy far, far away…..
Ah January, the time where the worst movies go to die. So what is the best thing to do, during this pathetic cinematic month? Well, looking forward to the rest of the year sounds like a good place to start. From a galaxy far, far away, to stories that seem pretty close to this planet, 2015 is gonna be one fantastic year at the movies. So which are the ones I’m the most excited to see? Prepare yourself for one big, epic, insane list–these are my most anticipated movies of 2015!
As you may recall a few months back, Disney announced a huge chunk of the cast for Star Wars: Episode VII. Much of the internet was concerned over the huge ratio difference of male to female cast members in the film, creating much hoopla over the possibility of the series not breaking any new ground with female characters. Well, you can breath a sigh of relief, internet, because the most glorious announcement was made! The stunning and precious Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave) and Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones) have been cast in the new J.J Abrams film. There of course is no word on what specific character they will play in the film, nor any plot details, but knowing they will even be in the movie is a treat in all the right ways.
This not only clears the rumors of multiple female roles in the film, but also shows yet again how awesome it is that Star Wars is rocking in the diversity department. Lupita and Gwendoline are fantastic casting choices all around, and with other additions previously mentioned like John Boyega and Oscar Isaac, I truly can’t wait to see this new, possibly breathtaking edition to the Star Wars franchise.
So, are you excited for Lupita and Gwendoline joining the cast? Who do you think they’ll play? I’m hoping for Lupita as a Jedi, as I would buy every single merchandise of that ever (you hear me, Disney? I am serious!) and Gwendoline as maybe an elegant political figure. Comment below with your thoughts!
Welp, the day has come that we (basically) have official information on the Star Wars VII cast. Is your Jedi body ready? First, take a look at this super sweet photo of the cast and crew chilling on some comfy couches:
