Comic Review Chewbacca #1



Comic Review Chewbacca #1 

Lets kick off with everyones favouite walking carpet Chewbacca and his very own adventure!


A girl and her dad have been put to work in a mine filled with what looks like candy floss to pay off a debt to a weird looking alien type debt collector with a goldfish bowl for a helmet.  The dad smuggles his daughter out Indiana Jones style in a mine car!


We cut to Chewie who by the looks of it has crash landed his ship and jumped into some flowers to have a nap?! Chewie goes into town to try and get a new ship part and he bumps into the girl who it seems nobody likes and various weird aliens just want to sell her out and chase her into a run down casino!  
The Wookie goes gambling to raise money for his ship parts and finds the girl hiding in the gambling establishment and lo and behold they start becoming friends. Even though she cant understand a word he says she asks Chewie for help in breaking her dad out from the mine and he agrees!

And then the debt collector guy and his cronies meet an imperial officer and some Stormtroopers' somewhere out of town and sell them some dodgy stuff in order to gain favour with The Empire. And that in a nutshell is about it!

I don't know what I was expecting from this, but the story seemed a little flat and predictable in places, most of the panels were filled with the girl rambling on and Aliens chasing her around town.  It just seemed a bit too predictable, hopefully the story will get better when the Empire sticks its inevitable oar in. But Chewie laying in flowers?! Seriously, this made no sense at all? The art was good except the girl keeps looking more and more like a boy with every panel. I'm still looking forward to the next one though.

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.
