Filmmakers can work on a project for years, even coming so far as to finishing casting, only to see it dissolve as an aspirin in water. One of the more curious “could have been” projects of the last few years is the proposed Star Wars live-action series Star Wars: Underworld. George Lucas and producer Rick McCallum worked for a long while to put together a live-action TV show of Star Wars, commissioning nearly 50 scripts and bringing together a team of writers to see them through. Unfortunately, the project currently remains just as an idea unlikely to ever be done.

Empire Magazine has polled over 250,000 obsessive movie fans to come up with the 301 greatest movies ever made, a list that is led by the 1980 classic Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back. This same poll was conducted back in 2008, which, at the time, found The Godfather taking top honors. It has now slipped into second place.

The Empire Galactic Era was a time when you needed to be tough to survive, especially if you were in the smuggling/rebel business. In other words, if you were approached by another smuggler for a debt to a Hutt you needed to shoot first, otherwise what is the point of being a scoundrel armed with a blaster if you are not going to be moody and shoot at things?
Just because, here are another ten scenes that make Han Solo what we love about him: a goddarn cold blooded (sometimes laserbrain) smuggler!

The Star Wars VII project has changed significantly since Oscar winner Michael Arndt split as writer on Episode VII in the fall, with duties taken up by Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan, who co-wrote Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
According to multiple insiders, the reason for the parting of ways was not due to a timeframe issue, as has been reported, but rather due to a difference of opinion of which characters to emphasize.

All right. It’s Saturday night, I have no date, a soda and The Simpsons marathon is on … Let’s talk about Han Solo.
Note: the following stories has been taken from the Expanded Universe of Star Wars, which by decision of Lucasfilm, it’s not more canon since 2013.
Han Solo was a pain in the ass for the Empire long before he joined the Rebel Alliance. Graduated with honors as an Imperial pilot from the Academy of Carida, he deserted when saved the life of a wookiee slave called Chewbacca. Ironically, he will later fight alongside the Rebellion using all the skills he learned in an Imperial Academy.
Having been around all the time, here are ten Star Wars characters who necessarily met him before A New Hope:
Yes, Star Wars once again. It’s Ender’s Game promotion, people! (that’s Harrison talking).
Anyway, Harrison was in The Graham Norton Show alongside Benedict Cumberbatch (who is also rumored to have a role in the new Star Wars) while in London during the promotion of his new movie.
