Today is May 5, 2016 and it’s another Collider Jedi Council hosted by Kristian Harloff, with John Campea, Tiffany Smith and John Rocha.
Chris Miller Teases Young Han Solo Movie
The council starts by looking at the recent tweet Chris Miller gave the fans in preparation of his next movie (and Phil Lord’s), Young Han Solo. The image is a simple one, Han Solo’s iconic blaster laying on a table. The council discuss whether this is anything, with some commenting on how it actually got them very excited
Mark Hamill Confirms Original Opening of The Force Awakens
Before The Force Awakens opened, a rumored was going around that had many, including the council, convinced it was nothing but a hoax and oh, so very bad. That of a supposed opening that featured a severed hand holding a lightsaber floating in space. No way. Turns out, it was true. Mark Hamill spoke about the original opening, confirming it was there but ultimately cut. Thankfully. The whole panel agreed – it was a stupid idea that didn’t “feel” like a Star Wars opening.
Riz Ahmed Talks Rogue One
The actor talked with Entertainment Weekly about the level of detail involved in the making of Rogue One and shared his first memories of the Star Wars universe. He said that he didn’t follow the storyline but remembers the images (from the original) and they were seared onto his brain. On set, he felt it was a bunch of trippy set pieces for him.
Anakin Reference Cut from The Force Awakens
J.J. Abrams revealed in an interview that he wanted the flags found in Maz Kanata’s castle to be an Easter Egg haven for fans of the series. In the flags we saw a number of things that were call backs to the original movies. A big one being Boba Fett’s flag. Turns out there was a flag seen in the trailers that was from Anakin’s pod in Phantom Menace. But later it was cut out of the original release because, as J.J. said, he didn’t want to include podracing references.
The Force Awakens Cantina Song Now Available
Many fans asked for it and yesterday, they got it. Lin Manuel Miranda and J.J. Abrams released the original Jabba Flow, the song that was performed in Maz Kanata’s Castle, in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Miranda and Abrams didn’t only write and produce the song, but they also performed the track; which is available now on iTunes.
What’s the Deal with Canon?
Here now is the segment called What’s the Deal with Canon – a discussion on everything in the world of canon that isn’t one of the movies, be it Episodes or Star Wars’ Story.
In this segment, a very special Bloodline (non-spoiler) review followed by the special interview Kristian had with the author of Bloodline, Claudia Gray! After the interview, the panel discuss the interview, and the book. Giving their thoughts on the first novel set close to the events of The Force Awakens. After, they look at a report of a new Star Wars video game in the works. Because, we need more video games set in the Star Wars Universe.
