Lucasfilm has revealed that Forest Whitaker will be playing Saw Gerrera in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. If you're a fan of Star Wars: The Clone Wars , this should really get your blood pumping with excitement! You will find a full photo of him in costume below along with some additional information.
Saw Gerrera made his debut in the universe on The Clone Wars animated series and he was featured in Season 5, Episode 2, which was titled "A War on Two Fronts." In the show, he was a young man on the planet Onderon who unleashed a guerrilla war on the droid army of Separatists who took over his world. He also fought alongside Anakin Skywalker with his sister Steela before Anakin succumbed to the dark side and became Darth Vader. Saw and Steela were part of an insurgent group who were being trained by Anakin, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Captain Rex, and the padawan Ahsoka Tano.
How freakin' awesome is that!? I absolutely love that Lucasfilm brought a character to life in the film from the animated series. In Rogue One, Gerrera is described by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy as a "battered veteran who leads a band of Rebel extremists. He's on the fringe of the Rebel Alliance. Even [they] are a little concerned about him." EW went on to say:
Whitaker’s Saw Gerrera is bulkier, more battle-hardened with the years, and maybe a little shellshocked. He has continued to fight; and, as he suggested in the trailer, he has become something — and it’s not quite a hero. Rather, he’s a man who has tried to do the right thing by occasionally doing questionable things.
Kennedy also added that Gerrera is an ally to the Rebel squad in Rogue One , but he’s not really one of them, “He’s off on his own.” Kiri Hart, Lucasfilm’s head of story development, also chimed in with some information, explaining:
"The Death Star is the event that sort of pulls everybody [from various Rebel groups] into a place of unity, and prior to that it’s a little bit more divided. Who are at the different ends of that spectrum?"
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is in theaters on December 16, 2016. For more information on the film and to catch up with more recent news involving details on several of the other characters we'll see in the movie, click here.
I caught this fan poster over the weekend while scrolling through my Facebook feed. It’s for a Stan Lee biopic starring Bryan Cranston as the legendary Marvel comic book writer. It popped up on the Marvel Cinematic Universe fan page, and I immediately was like, “Yes! This needs to happen!”
It’s just too damn perfect to ignore, and this needs to eventually be added to Marvel’s movie lineup. It may not take place in the MCU, but this is a biopic that really needs to be made, and Cranston would just be amazing as Lee.
Stan Lee has led an extraordinary life. All of the stuff he went through in the comic book industry is such fascinating story that would make for a great film. Wouldn't it be crazy if every actor who has ever starred in a Marvel movie made a cameo in the Stan Lee biopic?
Dan Brown and Ron Howard are a match made in Hollywood heaven. The best-selling author pens insanely paced thrillers that sprint through culture and history, led by famed symbologist Robert Langdon (played by two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks).
Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin has passed away following an automobile accident at his home, TMZ reports.Reports indicate that Yelchin was killed after being pinned between his car and a brick mailbox. The car was in neutral, with the engine running, when he was found. The driveway on the [...]
Each episode is set to be a standalone drama, adapted and modernized for global audiences by a creative team of British and American writers. The series will both illustrate the writer’s prophetic vision and celebrate the enduring appeal of his works, which include The Man in the High Castle, A Scanner Darkly and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, which became Ridley Scott's hit Blade Runner.
With Black Panther, it’s a great honor to be doing this character that is the first legit black superhero. The helmet in particular is so insane. On average, I will spend 5 weeks from concept to helmet-in-hand. For Panther’s helmet, we did 6 to 8 weeks just refining it. We did the real world sculpt, then we refined it, then we put it in the computer to refine it more. I’m super proud of the way it turned out.
