Disney and Lucasfilm have revealed the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII and didn’t even force us to solve a J.J. Abrams viral puzzle to obtain the information. In fact, this was easy. Almost… too easy….

Wow. Barely escaped that one. We lost a lot of good men and fish people. At any rate, the cast (pictured above at the table read) now officially includes Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Daisy Ridley, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, and the previously announced Karen Gillan’s hair. Beyond the returning cast, its unknown what roles the new additions will play but I think it would be pretty awesome if Andy Serkis plays Yoda‘s nephew who beneath his street tough exterior is a good kid crying out for help.

In reaction to the news that Disney has purchased the rights to Star Wars sequels from LucasFilm, Darth Vader decided to swing by the Magical Kingdom to see who he should enslave and crush first. It’s a cute video, but seriously Disney? Everyone knows that Darth Vader dies at the end of Chapter VI, so there’s no way he can appear in the next trilogy. Would it kill you to pay attention to the details? We’re trusting you with this, mmmkay? Don’t f*ck it up.

LucasFilm Disapproves of Lightsaber That Sets Skin On Fire http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/lucasfilm-disapproves-of-lightsaber-that-sets-skin-on-fire/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/lucasfilm-disapproves-of-lightsaber-that-sets-skin-on-fire/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Wicked Lasers designed a blue laser called the Spyder III Pro Arctic that looks an awful lot like a lightsaber. It has the ability to kill people, and LucasFilm has a problem with that. Even the warning on the product itself basically says not to turn the thing on: Warning: Extremely dangerous is an understatement to the power of 1W of laser power. It will blind permanently and instantly and set fire quickly to skin and other body parts, use with extreme caution and only when using the included eye protection. Customers will be required to completely read and agree to our Class IV Laser Hazard Acknowledgment Form. It doesn't get more metal than setting fire to skin and other body parts. Do they mean body parts not covered by skin? What kind of creature is handling these miracles of modern science? Apparently those pussies at LucasFilm can't handle the shear awesomeness of death lasers: It has come to our attention that a company called Wicked Lasers is selling a highly dangerous product out of Hong Kong that is designed to look like a lightsaber from Star Wars. This product is not licensed or approved by Lucasfilm in any way. We have demanded that Wicked Lasers immediately cease and desist their infringing activities. As Wicked Lasers itself admits, this product can cause serious injury to the user and other people. We strongly discourage consumers from purchasing it. I guess I get it. Someone sells a product that resembles a cherished icon from your landmark films, and said product sets some kid on fire, you might wind up with egg on your face. But it's awesome blue egg that emits a 445nm ultra high power 1W beam which appears up to 4000% brighter than the Sonar's 405nm violet beam!  Check out video of the Spyder III after the jump...
