Warwick Davis Wicket

Say what you want about the ewoks, these furry little guys are among my very first memories of seeing a Star Wars film, and those memories are ones I’m quite fond of. I was three years old when I first saw Return of the Jedi in 1983, and even though I don’t remember my first viewing that well, the star ewok character “Wicket” has always stuck with me. I even had a stuffed “Wicket” to snuggle every night before bed back then (awwwww…).

It has been confirmed for a while now that Warwick Davis, the actor who played Wicket, will indeed return for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, but we haven’t been told yet who his character will be. Since Return of the Jedi, he has already returned to the franchise for The Phantom Menace back in 1999, playing two different characters (Anakin’s little Rodian friend “Wald,” and a spectator at the Pod Race). So it wasn’t necessarily a given that he was returning as Wicket, or even a new ewok character.

Well, new evidence has come forth that suggests that Davis will indeed be returning as “Wicket.” While not confirmed, and should be taken with a grain of salt, this rumor is simply too good to ignore, so read on for more!

Two weeks ago, the disappointing news came that Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series would no longer air on the network, and that we would only be receiving “bonus content” to wrap up certain story arcs from the show. Thus far, there has been no word yet on just what exactly we’ll be seeing in these arcs, except for the preview clip we were shown when the announcement came, and we still do not know how we will be receiving said content.

However,‘s Eric Geller stated today that, according to his source, we will be receiving two different completed story arcs, which means that anything else Lucasfilm Animation (currently going through layoffs) was currently working on besides these two arcs will be scrapped. Read on for what Geller had to say on the matter.

Peter Jackson

Just a couple of weeks ago, director Peter Jackson came to San Diego Comic-Con to give fans a glimpse of what is to come this December in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, as well as the “last days” of shooting The Hobbit films. It was there that the acclaimed director started talking about how he actually wants to shoot more footage for The Hobbit, which got everyone talking about whether this would mean more material for future Extended Editions of the two films on Blu-ray and DVD, or if he actually might somehow turn his two-part film adaptation into a trilogy.

At the time, he didn’t seem to know what form this could take on, if it were to happen at all. Most seems to think that, if it were to occur, Extended Editions would be more likely to happen than the creation of an entire third film. Well, as it turns out, The Hollywood Reporter is now reporting that talks have indeed begun between Peter Jackson and Warner Brothers to somehow turn the two Hobbit films into a trilogy. Read on for a break down of how it has come to this point, and what this could mean for the franchise.

So, a couple of days ago, it was officially confirmed that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play a role in The Dark Knight Rises. Variety (a highly reputable source) updated their report, saying that he’ll be playing Alberto Falcone, son of Carmine “The Roman” Falcone from Batman Begins.

However, is now reporting that, while he is indeed confirmed for the film, recent reports claiming he’ll be playing Alberto Falcone are FALSE.

So which report is accurate? Only an official announcement from Warner Brothers can answer that. In the meantime, it looks like speculation can continue. If you want my opinion, I really still hope he’ll be playing Falcone, but I am sure that he’ll be good no matter what the role is. Stay tuned as more details emerge…

Thanks Tony Carlson for the heads up!

X-Files FTF_01

Ever since FOX All Access carried the story that a script for The X-Files 3 may be in the works and never shot it down (even though David Duchovny did), X-Philes from all over have been posting messages on their Facebook page almost daily, asking to get the film made and showing that the fandom has clearly not died down at all.

Fringe Producers

FOX’s TV series Fringe, while fairly successful, has not gained huge ratings for the network, and ever since the announcement came that the show was moving from Thursdays to Fridays, fans and non-fans alike assumed the worst since many of the network’s shows that made the move to Fridays ended up getting canceled.

To address the fans on this issue, Fringe‘s Facebook page posted a great little featurette with producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman where they address the mid-season move to Fridays and why the fans shouldn’t be worried (last Friday’s ratings should also prove to be encouraging). It really sheds some much needed light on the situation and everyone who was skeptical of the show’s new night should at least check it out. Hit the jump to watch!
