The Bearded Trio - A Statement On The New Trailer And Fans #ThankYouGeorgeLucas @StarWars

george lucas star wars

I love the new trailer for The Force Awakens.  Its everything I wanted it to be and more.  It seems J.J. Abrams and the talented crew will bring the magic of Star Wars back to the silver screen since Revenge of the Sith or technically in my opinion since the theatrical release of The Clone Wars.

There is a sting in the tale with the new trailer and the positive vibes that go with it and that's the inevitable George Lucas bashing.  Over the last few days I've seen many remarks running down the STAR WARS CREATOR on Twitter and other social media sites.  Statements like 'this is how it should be done George' and 'Star Wars can be done right in the right hands.'

I've even seen a fan-made 'George Lucas special edition' version of the new trailer.  I know this is a joke and should be taken as such but when you see so many positive remarks regarding the new trailer and in the mix 'fans' bashing the STAR WARS CREATOR I can't help but feel it's become a trend and an easy bandwagon to climb aboard.

Here's a suggestion.  Maybe we should just embrace the new Star Wars era and at the same time thank George for Star Wars and the epic galaxy he created.

Whether you're a fan of the original trilogy, whether you hated the prequels or whether you think his changes were one step too far he still brought us so much joy.  We should embrace Star Wars, past present and the future.

Thank you George Lucas for Star Wars and for creating a whole galaxy for me and others to play in.

#ThankyouGeorgeLucas

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 TheIndyExperience.com 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.
