Idea For A Book - I Need Your Star Wars Memories.

I need your Star Wars memories. I have this idea and I need your help. With the fortieth anniversary quickly approaching I thought it would be a great idea to collect your memories of Star Wars fans over the decades. Whether you were there in 77 or you became a fan with Episode One I want to know. You may have worked on the movies in some way or the expanded universe. Or you may just simply remember the first Star Wars figure you bought. I want to know.

The idea is in its early stage and to be honest I don’t know whether it will become a reality. It all depends on the input. What do you think? Would you want to see a Star Wars memories book? Has one already been done? What would you like to see in the book? I’ve never done anything like this before and the idea seems a bit daunting but at the same time having a celebration of memories in time for the forty year anniversary motivates me to pursue the idea. So any input, stories or tips would be a great help.

You can contact me either by leaving a comment or by emailing me

So the first stage is to get the content. Don’t be afraid to let me know your memories no matter how small or weird.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.

UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
