Guest Posts - A Quick Guideline


We are always looking for guest posts from fans as we a genuine fan site run by fans. We want to give an opportunity for fans to show their passion. So the post could be about a particular Spielberg movie a soundtrack by John Williams or even a Lucasarts title.

We like to consider ourselves as a relaxed site so there’s no restrictions such as deadlines but we do ask to try and make the article a minimum of 400 words.  Also, we would prefer no bad language as we like to think we’re a family-friendly site.  We try to avoid negativity as we are a site to celebrate their work so prequel bashing is a no.  Finally, we can only except original content, so if you've already posted the article on another site, unfortunately we won't be able to post it.

We encourage a punchy title to the article as this helps with Google SEO.  So having the word Star Wars in the title if it's about that galaxy far, far away helps with the likes of Apple News picking it up for example.  Don't make the title too long though as this has the opposite effect.  We also like a sub title for the main body as again this helps with SEO.  We can help you with this if you prefer.

If you have any photos that you want to include with the article, feel free to send them across too and we can embed videos too from YouTube, Vimeo and other streaming sites.

Once published we will of course post on all our social media pages to get the word out.

That’s about it really. You can contact me via email rob@thebeardedtrio.com if you want to send across a doc file for example. We encourage that if you do write a post to include a small bio about yourself and feel free to include any urls etc for plugging.

Thanks again for your interest. We absolutely love getting guest posts.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Still interested?  You can email Rob here for more information or to chat further.

Here are a few examples of previous guest posts:

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.…

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.

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.
