‘Star Wars Rebels’ Sets Billy Dee Williams to Return as Lando Calrissian

As if James Earl Jones’ return as Darth Vader and Frank Oz’s Yoda weren’t enough to remind you ‘Star Wars Rebels’ takes place in an era closer to the original trilogy, Billy Dee Williams’ Lando Calrissian will seal the deal.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Character Names Unveiled!

J.J. Abrams is famous for keeping secrets. His whole schtick as a director is the “mystery box”—finding pleasure in the unknown, and in the tease of that uncertainty. He didn’t show the monster in the trailer for ‘Cloverfield’; hell he didn’t even show the title of the movie in the trailer for ‘Cloverfield.’ If J.J.

Just this morning on Twitter, Lucasfilm and the official 'Star Wars' Twitter account revealed the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' title: 'A Force Awakens'.

Freddy Krueger Is Responsible for Mark Hamill’s Casting in ‘Star Wars’

It's hard to imagine Luke Skywalker being played by anyone but Mark Hamill in the original 'Star Wars' trilogy, but it very well could have happened. And according to 'Nightmare on Elm Street' icon Robert Englund, better known to audiences as Freddy Krueger, it might not have happened at all had he not once told a teenage boy about the part after coming home from a failed 'Star Wars' audition himself.

‘Star Wars Farts’ Reimagines Prequel Trilogy

The 'Star Wars' prequel movies, Episodes 1-3, have received a bit of flack in comparison to the original Mark Hamill-, Carrie Fisher- and Harrison Ford-led installments, so a group of people decided to make them better -- or, at least, funnier -- through something called 'Star Wars Farts.'
