Star Wars Saga Tribute: Fallen Army

While Killing TIme readers have a diverse number of interests, pretty much all of us are die-hard Star Wars fans.  I’m mentally exhausted by the events of the last few weeks and the arguing, so today, I honestly don’t want to do anything more than check out to a galaxy, far, far away, a place we all love.  Leoberry has created this epic tribute to the most intense moments of battle and sacrifice in all eight Star Wars films and did a fantastic job.  Watch and repeat.  Watch and repeat.

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi!!! Episode VIII’s Title Finally Revealed!!!

Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill, Star Wars Episode VIII, Star Wars, Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars Episode VIII’s official title has finally been revealed and the eighth episode is Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  I love it.  It’s so fitting given where Episode VII left off with us finally getting to Luke (to whom I’m supposing the title refers as he is called the last Jedi in The Force Awakens’ crawl), and we know from director Rian Johnson that we’re going to pick up exactly where we left Luke and Rey.  No more details released than the details below from Coming Soon and a stark teaser poster, but the timing of the release seems to indicate that the rumors that we’ll get our first look at The Last Jedi during Super Bowl LI in two weeks are true.  MAN I LOVE THIS TITLE!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is written and directed by Rian Johnson and continues the storylines introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, welcomes back cast members Mark Hamill, the late Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John BoyegaLupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis. New cast members will include Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Academy Award nominee Laura Dern, and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.

The sequel is produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman and executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is scheduled for release in theaters on December 15, 2017.

Star Wars Episode VIII Fan Made Poster Gallery

0

Star Wars fans have a long history of creating some of the best fan art and fan made posters cinema has ever seen.  Episode VII, especially, and the speculation surrounding it brought out the best in the fan community and, as much as I love the official poster, there are some fan posters that are just as good if not better.  Rogue One: A Star Wars Story too had a number of amazing fan posters created that were on par with the official banner.  Where movie posters have become a lost art, Star Wars has always had gorgeous official posters, and-since the advent of the Internet-fans have been able to share their own amazing work with the global fan community.  Episode VIII is next on the radar, and-while it is early-there are already a number of outstanding posters online.  I apologize to the artists for not being able to track down the names for most of them, and it IS early (I think the secrecy behind the plot has a lot of fan artists waiting for the first trailer to show some iconic imagery to work with), but here’s an early gallery of some of the best Episode VIII posters.

Top 5: Princess Leia Moments (Thank you, Carrie)

Princess Leia, Carrie Fisher, Return of the Jedi, Star Wars

Ask any guy who grew up with Star Wars, and we’ll admit it: we were all in love with her at some point.  She blasted Stormtroopers, piloted speeder bikes, commanded armies, and choked out a Hutt in the hottest outfit in film history.  She was the only girl action figure most of us kept around.  She was awesome, and we loved her for it, and part of us always will.  So until we’re all one with the Force, here are my five favorite Leia memories.

1. Aren’t You a Little Short to be a Stormtrooper? (A New Hope)

2. You Scruffy Looking Nerf Herder! (The Empire Strikes Back)

3. I love you.  I know. (The Empire Strikes Back)

4. Slave Leia Chokes a Hutt OUT (Return of the Jedi)

5. I Always Hated Watching You Leave (The Force Awakens)

Chewbacca Sings “Silent Night”; Merry Christmas Time Killers!!!!

I normally don’t post on Christmas Day, but I wanted to express my deep thankfulness to all my readers in a unique way that could only be expressed in song…..by a Wookie.  Thank you so much to the folks at How It Should Have Ended for creating this masterpiece that reminds of Christmas, family, Star Wars, and how profoundly empty our lives would be without the Internet to share these things.  God bless us all, every one, and Merry Christmas to you all!
