The Force Is Strong In The Last Jedi Trailer..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

 This week has brought great excitement to the force and the epicenter has been the 2017 Star Wars Celebration, located this year in Orlando. During this event, there has been panels and other happenings, but the moment the universe has been waiting for has happened and we have our first look at “The Last Jedi”

There you have the first trailer for Episode VIII and Christmas can’t get here soon enough. In this two minute clip, the viewers can quickly tell that we are not got to get any type of flash forward and we are witness to the beginning of Rey’s training. It is a given that it is Jedi training, but where will we see the reality of this episode’s title come into play. The rumors are out there and I can dive deep into them, but that type of discussion will be saved for the podcast (You can find the Nowhere California Podcast on your favorite podcast search engines) or on the comment section of this site. The reality and identity of the LAST Jedi will come into view in December, but that is just a microcosm of this trailer.

 The trailer, as a whole, can be dissected and screams for repeat viewing, so the viewer can hope to catch the slightest hint towards the plot of this film. You can look at the vast landscapes and wonder if you are looking at a rock pile or a surprise character. You can listen to every wave of audio and pin point the source of the whispers. It is a tough mission, but it is a mission the internet is more than happy to accept.

 As the current slate of movie releases have shown, it is an awesome time to be a movie fan and the trailers we have received continue to show that fact to be true. Also, DC and MARVEL can have their dick measuring contests when they release trailers, but the current series of Star Wars has shown their still a force to be reckoned with in the box office. December can’t get here quick enough.

Childish Gambino is entering a galaxy far, far away and a very important piece of Han Solo’s past has been casted for the upcoming spin off. The rumors have been confirmed and the official Star Wars Twitter account announced that Donald Glover will play the future Baron Administrator, Lando Calrissian. Glover will be joining Alden Ehrenreich, who will be playing a younger and still breathing Han Solo.

 

The last time we saw Lando, who was played by the legendary Billy Dee Williams, was during the events of episodes V and VI of the original Star Wars Saga, but this time around we are going to see Lando and Han’s life before Cloud city. The still untitled entry into the Star Wars universe will revolve around their early life in the intergalactic underworld.

Since there is still a lot of time before the 2018 release, the casting and story information will becoming quickly. As this world continues to grow and the movie begins to get filmed, stay locked into this site and http://www.starwars.com for any new information.

D23 Expo brings a “Galaxy far far Away” much much closer

(Nicholas Dye, Staff Writer)

Disney’s D23 Expo took place in Anaheim California over this last weekend and if we learned ANYTHING from the event it is this: It is a damn good time to be a Star Wars fan! All things Star Wars took a front and center spotlight at the expo this year and yet, aside from what we’ve learned from the most recent Entertainment Weekly, there weren’t really any new details to the story of the highly anticipated Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. What we did learn is that Disneyland, as well as Disney World in Orlando Florida, will be adding a 14 acre expansion to their parks that will be completely Star Wars themed.

Walt Disney Company CEO, Bob Iger took the stage to address the fans and revealed; “We are creating a jaw-dropping new world that represents our largest single themed land expansion ever. These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet.” It was also announced that the expansion will feature an attraction that allows guests to pilot Han Solo’s ship The Millennium Falcon on a “secret mission” and will also feature “an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guest in the middle of a climactic battle.” Conceptual artwork was featured as well which you can check out below.
