Last December, Star Wars began a new era of storytelling with The Force Awakens and this year it expands that story with a new cohort of rebels and heroes in Rogue One. What these movies have in common, besides the galaxy far far away, are two things: 1) Inclusive casts, and 2) the stewardship of Kathleen Kennedy. Full Story

Here’s Felicity Jones at Good Morning America today. Thanksgiving is over. So it’s now a two week push for everyone, pretty much in every industry, to blast out as much work as possible before things start slowing down for the Christmas holiday. Full Story

A new trailer for Rogue One just came out and goddamn it’s good. Between some pretty incredible visuals—that fallen Jedi monument legit gave me a chill—to the haunting variation on the famous theme, to the rousing rebellion story it’s laying out, this looks like a damn good movie. Full Story

Star Wars Celebration, a sort of mini-Comic Con dedicated solely to all things Star Wars, was held in London over the weekend. (There won’t be a Hall H Star Wars presentation this year, and one wonders how long before Disney starts doing this for Marvel, too.) There wasn’t much actual news to come out of the event—we already knew about Alden Ehrenreich Full Story

Dear Gossips,

As we’ve seen, Beyoncé knows how to hold back, make us miss her. You know who doesn’t know how – or want – to hold back and make you (not me) miss him? The Kardashian of Droids, BB-8.  Read Full Intro

Dear Gossips,

Last week was all about Will and Kate’s trip to India and Bhutan. And I realised this weekend that I hadn’t posted a single article about it. Every day I looked at some new shots. And every day, beyond mentioning that her shoe game is just so infuriatingly weak, there was nothing to say.  Read Full Intro

Let me tell off the top that I don’t have video for this and I’M SORRY, I can’t find it. I am as disappointed as you are. Because I’d probably rub one out to Oscar Isaac reading too. We do have pictures though? Does that work? Oscar Isaac was in London this weekend for Letters Live – celebrities reading aloud correspondence from famous personalities. Full Story

John Boyega won the BAFTA Rising Star Award last night. And he was dressed for it, looking sharp in a black velvet suit. I love his reaction when he got up to collect his trophy – a wide open-mouthed WHOA! as he was buttoning up his jacket. Understandable, non? He was in Star Wars. He was in the biggest movie of all time. Full Story

Industrial Light & Magic was presented with the Genius Award at Critics’ Choice last night. I’ve been to ILM in San Francisco. It’s an amazing facility. Yoda’s all over the place there, as he should be. And if he’d come out on stage to share the spotlight with ILM, fine, he deserves the moment. Full Story

Every day there’s a new headline about all the records that Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been breaking. The latest – I think, because there are so many records to be broken! – is that it has reached the $1 billion worldwide mark in the shortest amount of time: 12 days.
