Who doesn’t like cartoons, especially when they give insight into what really happened to set off the events in the newer Star Wars films? Clone Wars has been my son’s favorite franchise creation and he has grown up on these cartoons, so yeah, we’re excited here. This trailer looks awesome too!
Even older Star Wars fan have been anxiously awaiting this series again. I want answers. Do you? Let’s all hope that the force is kind to us, yeah?
Watch it March 7th on Netflix in the US and Canada. (x)

Rumors have been swirling the past few months about who will be cast in the MUCH anticipated Star Wars reboot directed by J.J. Abrams, and the latest, according to Ain’t It Cool News, to join the high profile list is Transformers Jack Reynor, american born but Irish bread! Jack is ADORABLE and was recently signed to star in the latest Transformers trilogy, though he has some steep company in the audition room as many Hollywood big wigs have publicly stated they have or will audition for the film such as Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan, and Gary Oldman, while Benedict Cumberbatch has already secured his role. As to which role Jack will be reading for, well that remains unknown as do many of the others.
Star Wars is due for release in 2015 and THANKFULLY our beloved Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford seem be reprising their infamous roles! That alone is worth living another day folks.

Now I’m not likely to say no to Tom Hiddleston about anything. Just who can really tell Loki anything, anyways? Even out of costume, Hiddleston exudes such charm and giddy mischievousness with a smile. So seriously, who does ever tell that man anything but what he wants to hear?!
However, he says he’d have to say no to a part in the Star Wars saga. He seems to think his Thor associations and how many fans adore him as Loki might keep him from getting a role. And while he admits it would be flattering for J. J. Abrams to include him, he isn’t sold on the idea either especially after talking to Ewan McGregor.
“I did talk to Ewan about it once. When they asked if he wanted to be Obi-Wan Kenobi he said: ‘Are you joking? Of course!’ But his experience didn’t live up to the promise.’” (x)
Wow, really?! McGregor you need to come talk to me about the words coming out of your mouth. Those are fightin’ words. He must’ve been pretty adamant about his thoughts too, since Hiddleston is quoted, quoting him. Hmmm… I remember when McGregor did the press junket for those films, and he was so freakishly giddy from the insanity of it all, hopping and bouncing around like a fanboy at a convention. So I wonder what happened between those days and now? Yeah… and how influential he was in Hiddleston’s obvious non-interest in taking a role in the next Star Wars film. Also, while we’re speculating, did Abrams approach him already about it and that’s why he’s making a statement?

I have been sitting here – staring at my computer – wondering just what to think… Zac Efron in Star Wars?
Now, I am all for Zac Efron. I appreciate his beauty, his poise, his acting. But even I (and I am not a Star Wars fan) can say this doesn’t seem like the best idea.
Leave it Josh Horowitz to find out all the good – because when playing a game he asked who would be most likely to be in the Star Wars movies. And that’s when Zac dropped the bombshell.
Efron said, “Yeah, I just went and met with them. So I don’t know. It would be cool. I love, I love them, but… who knows?”
Okay Disney, I am gonna say it. I get you like to keep within your stars, but this is just too much. Sorry Zac, I adore you.

The Star Wars: Episode VII casting speculation game continues — and The Hollywood Reporter‘s Heat Vision has a few names to add to the mix: Michael Fassbender, Girls star Adam Driver and Hugo Weaving.
Never has a project attracted so much ink about meetings, but such is the passionate interest in Star Wars. Last fall, every few weeks there was a breathless reveal of a meeting, with names such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael B. Jordan, Jack O’Connell, Alex Pettyfer, Saoirse Ronan and Sullivan Stapleton coming up. And those are only the names that leaked out.
With all the actors being tossed around — including a report this week that Breaking Bad‘s Jesse Plemonswas meeting with director J.J. Abrams about a role — Heat Vision thought it was time to check in on Star Wars in general.
Sources confirm Plemons is on the list to chat with Abrams for Episode VII (and possibly the entire trilogy), with a meeting set to take place this week. But he is only one of a long string of actors on Abrams’ meeting list.
As usual, Disney and Lucasfilm are declining to comment, as are the agencies of the respective actors.
