Today we celebrate the 54th birthday of Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney.



Anthony Edwards, George Clooney and Eric La Salle

He shot to fame some twenty years ago as the stubborn but caring physician Doug Ross in
Amblin Television's E.R., Emergency Room (not to be confused with the sitcom E/R, that
was made 10 years earlier, starring the same George Clooney).

Nicole Kidman and George Clooney

And he starred as the (still) stubborn and energetic Lt. Col. Thomas Devoe, who saves the 

world in the very first feature that was produced by DreamWorks SKG in 1997: 


The Peacemaker.


Happy Birthday George.

Ronny.

Indiana Jones Raiders

The recent Kathleen Kennedy interview in Vanity Fair by Bruce Handy mainly focused on Star Wars  and The Force Awakens.  But Indiana Jones was mentioned and if we will see more of the man in the hat.  Kennedy said:

“(it) will one day be made inside this company. When it will happen, I’m not quite sure. We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it.”

No new news as this was pretty much what we knew before.  The Internet was lit up today with stories like 'Indy to Return' and 'More Indy Confirmed!.'  What Kathleen Kennedy said was already said by other people such as Disney's Alan Horn who said it will happen but no story is in place yet.  So no news and more of it.

It's obvious that Indiana Jones will return.  Disney don't buy Lucasfilm and the rights to Star Wars, Indiana Jones and others and just sit on their thumbs with the franchise.  Of course they'll bring back Indy.  They're not making it up as they go.

Happy 71st Birthday to John Rhys-Davies or, as we have come to know him the best, Indy's favorite pair of helping hands: Sallah (in Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye (at Disneyland)).


However, did you know that John also provided a couple of voices for the animated series of Animaniacs, Freakazoid and Pinky and the Brain ?

And, by the way, he shows no signs of slowing down at 71, for in 2015 he has attached himself to at least 9 projects, that are in various stages of completion.

Happy Birthday and hope that you will be around for a very long time  !

Ronny.

Iconic stormtrooper helmets decorated by artists from around the world up for bid on global Star Wars Day, May the 4th.

Star Wars: Force For Change, a charitable initiative from Disney and Lucasfilm, today announced its latest campaign, teaming with eBay Giving Works to auction off a selection of plaster stormtrooper helmet replicas uniquely decorated by artists around the world. The 10-day auction will kick off today and give bidders the chance to compete for these one-of-a-kind stormtrooper helmets at a starting price of $5.04. Lucasfilm has donated the helmets to U.S. Fund for UNICEF. U.S. Fund for UNICEF will receive 100% of the final auction sales price for each helmet and will direct these funds to support UNICEF Kid Power, an innovative new program that uses the world's first Wearable-For-Good to get kids active and provide lifesaving food packets to children in need around the globe.


This auction comes on the heels of a very successful Force For Change interactive event at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. During a globally-broadcast panel discussion about the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie to be released on December 18, 2015, director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy discussed their latest collaboration with the humanitarian children’s organization in support of UNICEF Kid Power and why the relationship is so important to Star Wars: Force For Change.

“The Star Wars movies have always inspired a desire in people to help others, and we are extremely grateful that our fan community has been so generous with their time and efforts on behalf of the many charitable causes they support,” remarks Kathleen Kennedy, President of Lucasfilm Ltd. “Our hope is that Force For Change will harness that spirit of giving into a worldwide movement that uses the power and reach of Star Wars to help those around the world in need.”

“UNICEF Kid Power allows kids to become global forces for change with every step they take. The generous support from Disney and Lucasfilm along with the excitement generated by Star Wars fans will allow UNICEF to inspire even more kids to get active and save lives,” said Caryl M. Stern, President & CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. "May the Force for change be with you!"

Star Wars: Force For Change and UNICEF Kid Power also hosted an obstacle course for kids on the Celebration floor with severalStar Wars licensees and fan groups participating to raise over $50,000 in support of UNICEF Kid Power.  By tapping into young people’s inherent desire to help others, Star Wars: Force for Change and UNICEF Kid Power are inspiring a new generation of global citizens.
While participating in the program, kids wear UNICEF Kid Power Bands, which measure their activity while they are moving. Physical activity unlocks Kid Power Points – the more they move, the more points they earn. Kid Power Points are converted to funding by partners, and funds are used by UNICEF to deliver lifesaving packets of therapeutic food to severely malnourished children.

UK Chancellor, George Osborne is set to announced on Monday that the eighth instalment of Star Wars will be filmed in the UK.  Star Wars The Force Awakens is set to release in cinemas in December this year and that was also shot in the UK after the chancellor made a deal with Lucasfilm.  It seems another deal has been sealed to see more Star Wars being made in the UK creating more jobs and boosting tourism to the country.

Osborne will announce that Lucasfilm will invest about £100m in the film, creating an estimated 3,000 jobs. It will be the fourth Star Wars sequel to be shot in the UK. Star Wars Episode VIII, to be directed by Rian Johnson, will start filming in 2016 with a release date scheduled for 2017.  George Osborne said:

"This investment by Lucasfilm ... is a huge vote of confidence in all elements of movie making in Britain — from the visual effects designers to the lighting technicians and from the carpenters to the costume designers.

“The creative industries make a huge economic and cultural contribution to the UK. That is why in budget after budget as chancellor, I announced measures to support the industry.

“We are committed to backing this sector and the decision by Lucasfilm to continue to make the UK the home of Star Wars production is why we are right to believe that Britain is the best place in the world for the creative industries.”

Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, said: “We are looking forward to continuing the new generation of Star Wars movies in the UK.”
