The realm of Thra is returning to screens for the first time in over 30 years as Netflix’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance unveiled its latest trailer during their Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2019.
“Are We Having Fun Now?” Your new best friend is coming to play this June!
“Every generation has a legend.”
We finally have some footage for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which is the first stand alone in the new canon Star Wars universe…
The teaser trailer, an AT-AT filed minute and a half, has blown the pants off diehards and skeptical fans alike, leaving them looking forward to the December premiere like a kid looks forward to Christmas. Most of them anyway…
The 1988 graphic novel The Killing Joke is one of the most influential works written in the last thirty years, and it’s brutality is about to be introduced to a whole new generation…
Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics are bringing back some of the most beloved voice actors in history to tell a story long thought to graphic for animation. Kevin Conroy, Tara Strong, and Mark Hamill brought life to Batman: The Animated Series back in the 1990s, and now they are returning to those roles again.
As had been teased a few months back, Cartoon Network today announced that the Justice League is returning to the airwaves for an ongoing series Called Justice League Action. As if that wasn’t enough, the iconic voice of Batman, Kevin Conroy — who pioneered the role in Batman: The Animated Series — is back to do it again.
JLA, long a GrizzlyBomb and general fan favorite (here are some of our best picks from the last ongoing Justice League Animated series), there is one key difference known about this new show. Rather than the traditional 30-minute block, Justice League Action is going to be aired in the quarter-hour format that’s proven successful with many CN shows, such as Adventure Time and Regular Show.
Now that Star Wars The Force Awakens has been in theaters for a couple of weeks, it’s time to delve into the film fully and discuss everything that happened. While on the surface, the movie is solid and a lot of fun, for those of us die-hard fans there’s quite a bit to take in. So, without further ado here’s a SPOILER FULL look at The Force Awakens. If you haven’t seen the movie stop reading, go see the movie, then come back.
Winter can’t get here fast enough for fans of the epic Star Wars saga. It will be a happy holiday indeed for all when Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Episode VII) premieres on December 18, but until then check out this new footage from the movie’s first international spot.
Veteran actor Mark Hamill will be lending his trademark vocals to Batman’s arch-nemesis for the animated adaptation of The Killing Joke, one of the most revered Batman stories of all time.
After the recent news about the possible Star Wars spin offs in the works from Disney (see here for more details ), we now have even more news on the subject. Total Film shared some incredible news for Star Wars fans world-wide. The first was a piece of news from scooper El Mayimbe (writer for Latino Review) who announced on Fox News that Harrison Ford was returning as Han Solo and that it was a “done deal”.
This is shocking news, especially as Harrison was famously quoted as wanting to kill of his character in Empire Strikes Back. Maybe Fords return to the Sci-Fi genre with Cowboys and Aliens got him excited about the Star Wars universe once more, or maybe he was of a mind-set “If you want something doing right, you have to do it yourself”. He could also just be in it for the money. Before too much speculation could take place however, more news was released (again from Total Film), with an Entertainment Tonight interview with Mark Hamill. Hamill had a slightly different story to tell. Though George Lucas had been in talks with him about role reprises, nothing had been signed at this time.
Hamill said in his interview…
[quote]“They’re talking to us. George [Lucas] wanted to know whether we’d be interested. He did say that if we didn’t want to do it, they wouldn’t cast another actor in our parts – they would write us out. … I can tell you right away that we haven’t signed any contracts. We’re in the stage where they want us to go in and meet with Michael Arndt, who is the writer, and Kathleen Kennedy, who is going to run Lucasfilm. Both have had meetings set that were postponed – on their end, not mine. They’re more busy than I am.”[/quote]
This shows a certain level of respect for the original actors. The fact George Lucas has spoken to Mark Hamill about what could happen in the new franchise would indicate that he really wants the original cast back to play their parts. The fact that they would write the characters out of the timeline, if no one was interested in reprising their roles again also shows a certain level of respect, but this time for the fans (as well as the actors) who are going to have trouble seeing these beloved characters played by different actors, especially when all the original cast are still alive.
[quote] “And another thing I’d want to make sure of is are we going to have the whole gang back? Is Carrie [Fisher] and Harrison [Ford] and Billy Dee [Williams] and Tony Daniels, everybody that’s around from the original [returning]? I want to make sure that everybody’s on board here, rather than just one.”[/quote]
This is also great news, with Hamill wanting all the crew on board we would have continuity throughout the series of movies. This is exactly what the fans want to see, the old chemistry of our favorite Jedi’s and smugglers all in the same movie. It is great news that Hamill knows what the fans want, and the fact he to only wants to work with his fellow Star Wars cast members. Hamill pleased the fans even more by saying he favored practical effects over CGI, something that worked against Episode 1-3.
[quote] “I’m assuming, because I haven’t talked to the writers, that these movies would be about our offspring – like my character would be sort of in the Obi-Wan range [as] an influential character.”[/quote]
A lot of the stories told after Episode 6 do focus on Luke Skywalker taking a more Obi-Wan role in the universe and a lot of the other stories focus on Leia and Hans children who are also gifted with the force. This would open up a great wealth of story possibilities as well as the fun fact we would be seeing how these characters have evolved since Episode 6. Though it is not clear if Harrison has signed or not, it is looking incredibly likely that we may see a return of the old cast, possibly with a married Han and Leia fighting over who is going to take the kids to Jedi training, while a white-haired Chewbacca plays chess with C3P0.
