Read Our Quick Review Of Star Wars: The Forces Of Destiny - Sands of Jakku And Watch The Episode Here

star wars forces of destiny sands of jakku

It may only be 2 minutes and 48 seconds long, but the first episode of Star Wars: Forces of Destiny really packs a punch and will make you feel all warm inside.  The episode is titled “Sands of Jakku,”  and centres around fan favourites, Rey and BB-8.  Rey is actually voiced by Daisy Ridley and the episode is introduced by wide-eyed (with her goggles on) Maz Kanata who is voiced by Force Awakens actress, Lupita Nyong'o.

Star Wars: Forces of Destiny is set to be a huge hit with Star Wars fans.  Expect to hear in upcoming episodes John Boyega, Shelby Young, the ever popular Ashley Eckstein, Rogue One's Felicity Jones and Star Wars voice artist veteran, Vanessa Marshall to name a few.

This new series really is a perfect way and size to get a new Star Wars fix wherever you may be.  Perfect for when I grab a coffee break in work.  In this episode listen out for Rey's theme, the wonderful sound effects you expect from a Star Wars movie and watch the clean animation to take you, for a brief moment to a galaxy far far away.  As mentioned the lightning fast episode is over before you know it but has a simple but effective plot that kind of reminded me of the stories I used to come up with when I played with my Star Wars figures.  It made me feel like a kid again and that is no bad thing.  The Force is with Forces of Destiny.

Trivia - The composer for Star Wars: Forces of Destiny, Ryan Shore is a veteran when it comes to providing the music to popular animated TV but did you know that he also provided the music to the excellent documentary on Drew Struzan "Drew: The Man Behind the Poster?"

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.
