Star Wars Weekly Social Buzz!

DejarikWe’re exactly one week before Star Wars Celebration Europe! Check out the latest posts and comments from the Star Wars cast and crew before the highly anticipated event. This week we’ve got the latest from Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Rian Johnson, Pablo Hidalgo and more.



As we know Star Wars: Episode VIII will finish principal photography on July 22. Several cast members have already revealed that they are done with the filming.


Anthony Daniels was first to officially announce that he is done filming yesterday:




Next it was John Boyega:

And Pablo Hidalgo has to say something about it πŸ™‚




Also Adam Driver has already been spotted in New York, meaning that he wrapped even earlier. Still don’t read too much about the amount of screen time that an actor has based on when he wraps filming:





Mark Hamill shares another image from Pinewood. You can clearly see that he has only trimmed his beard. It’s not a clean shave as we thought a few days ago.


They finally let drive a buggy around Pinewood… Ok fine I stole it #GetAwayCar

Here is a closer look at the galaxy far, far away from the young reader’s book Star Wars Galactic Maps (via JediBibliothek):

Learn about all of the various planets of the Star Wars universe with Galactic Maps! With detailed maps showing the different worlds and characters, this is the perfect book for any avid Star Wars reader. Fans will be delighted to find a spread introducing them to the planet and characters featured in Rogue One!



So it appears that there’s a Rogue One planet/s hidden in the map. Here’s what SWNN’s Jordan Pate speculated about this:

What’s interesting is that all of these planets have appeared (or been mentioned) in Canon before. Most were featured in the Clone Wars series. If I had to guess at which planet is in Rogue One, I would say Quermia is the best bet, mainly because of all the planets shown here, it is the only one with no significant history in Canon so far. It is the homeworld of Jedi Master Yareal Poof, and has been mentioned in various SW encyclopedias. The fact that it even appears on the map here tells me that the story group has future plans for it. From the map picture, it seems to have a lot of ocean as well which we have seen in Rogue One photos and footage already. It actually looks a lot like earth to me. I could see Cerea as a possibility as well.



As you know Chuck Wendig’s second book from the Aftermath trilogy, titled Life Debt, will be released on July 12 (stay tuned for our review on that day). Barns & Noble have a special edition of the book that also features a pull out poster featuring Millennium Falcon blueprints, and the new character Mr. Bones inspired from the Prequel Trilogy:





More on Star Wars Aftermath: Life Debt on July 12.


Speaking of Life Debt, our friend Kristian Harloff will interview Chuck Wendig next week. Stay tuned for that one, you don’t want to miss it:




Next, we have some more posts from Episode VIII director Rian Johnson.


On the possible commentary track for the Episode VIII Blu-ray:




The romance between Rian and Pablo continues this week as well πŸ™‚






Rian also shared two photos from the Millennium Falcon from the Episode VIII set:






Some actors might have already wrapped filming, but this is not the case for Daisy Ridley, who continues to be hard at work:




If you want to hear more from Rey, get the new LEGO Star Wars game:




It appears that even your hair cut can be considered a spoiler. Daisy took some precautions trying to hide it in the following training video. So there’s a big possibility that Rey will have a different hair cut in Episode VIII.

And some weird face swapping between Daisy and Rian:




And Rian’s comment:





Mark Hamill shares who is his hero!





The Maker watched some F1 action during the weekend in Austria on the circuit named after Steven Spielberg:





And finally some tweets from Pablo Hidalgo:




On the timeline of the Del Rey books:




On the dating system from the Galaxy Atlas that we mentioned above:




On the Jedi featured in Shroud of Darkness:




On the rule of two:




On the shaft scene in TESB:





On Walkers:



On Mara Jade:

And there is much, much more from Pablo. Just follow him on Twitter for lots of interesting stuff.


Stay tuned for more next week.

    Use a coaster! Han’s rolling over in his grave.

    My favorite tweet was the guy who thought Phantom was spelt with an F. The Fantom Menance lol

      hehe…yeah, took me sec to figure out what they were referring to with that “F”.

  • July 10, 2016 at 3:31 pm

    Why does Mr. Bones remind me of Deadpool?

    I’m so excited to finally see an official more complete canon map! Even more excited to see Ruusan on it! And finally we know Lothal’s location, though I think that’s not mid-rim as it was mentioned in the tv-show… or at least how I recall it was mentioned

    • July 11, 2016 at 7:12 pm

      Nah. It was always Outer Rim, IMO. That’s why Tarkin shows up in Season 1. He’s the Outer Rim governor.

      • July 12, 2016 at 11:18 am

        oh… right…

    So everybody has wrapped up except Daisy. Despite the warning from the article’s author, that has to mean something in terms of screen time Rey will get compared to other major characters.

    Millenium Falcon drawing –
    After viewing that pic, realized it will be a sad day when they replace the “Captain: Han Solo” with Rey/somebody else.

    I loved the concept of Bones. He’s what a lonely genius level kid would build (not C3PO).

    Still don’t like Snap as a pilot – regardless of his mother – I would have liked to see Snap as a high ranking mechanic or science officer (too Trek?) in the Resistance, rather than a pilot, but whatever, minor gripes.
