How ‘Ninjago’ Expands the Punk Rock, Rule-Breaking Lego Universe

6 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Phil Lord and Chris Miller turned animation on its head with “The Lego Movie” in 2014, they proved you could successfully make a punk rock hero’s journey that was both reverential and iconoclastic. This year Chris McKay expanded into Gotham with “The Lego Batman Movie,” and Charlie Bean takes a naturalistic turn with his martial arts brick adventure, “The Lego Ninjago Movie.” Despite embracing different genres, they are variations on family, friendship, and self-discovery.

“When I first saw ‘The Lego Movie,’ I thought this was so different and so cool,” said Bean, who makes his feature debut after helming the “Tron Uprising” animated series. “It was a garage band type of aesthetic. It doesn’t care about the rules. It can be live-action, it can use different graphic design. We can break the rules and do whatever we want. It’s funnier, more brash, and, at the same time, »

'Star Wars' Buzz: See Ron Howard's Han Solo Images

21 September 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Back in June, we heard that there had been a changing of the guard in the world of new Star Wars movies. Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller left the Han Solo spin-off movie and were replaced by Ron Howard. Actor turned filmmaker Howard directed his first movie, Grand Theft Auto, 40 years ago and he's helmed more than three dozen titles since then. Even though he's a member of an older generation than Lord and Miller, Howard has been quite adept at using social media to keep his fans apprised of his current productions for some time now. After he started his latest job, Howard shared a photo of young Chewbacca, teased the Galactic Empire and shared on-set photos of actors Donald Glover and Paul Bettany. Frankly, however, that's only the tip of the...

Han Solo Spinoff May Include A Scene Involving The Famous Kessel Run

21 September 2017 6:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“Fast ship? You mean you’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon?” to which an enquiring Obi-Wan Kenobi responds, “should I have?” Affronted, Harrison Ford’s wise-cracking nerf herder then utters that by-now famous line: “It’s the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.”

That scene in question, as any Star Wars fan will know, unfolds in Mos Eisley Cantina, in which the swashbuckling Han Solo offers his services (and his ship!) to the rather desperate Obi-Wan and Luke Skywalker, as they seek out safe passage to the Alderaan system. The Falcon’s historic feat is later mentioned in The Force Awakens, when Ford’s reluctant hero quickly corrects Rey about the Kessel Run and those 12 parsecs – a measurement of distance, not time, that equates to around 3.26 light-years.

Such a minor piece of Star Wars lore may be brushed aside by general moviegoers, but it seems »

Spice Mines of Kessel Teased in Latest Look at Han Solo

20 September 2017 6:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Han Solo is continuing to shoot in the U.K., with director Ron Howard sharing more teases from behind the scenes. Over the weekend, he shared a photo of actor Paul Bettany as the actor wrapped his role. Today, we have a photo that could teases an iconic location. Ron Howard sent out this photo from the set, which doesn't feature any obvious spoilers. But it does features an entrance to a cave, with most speculating that this is our first ever look at the often heard about Spice Mines of Kessel. Ron Howard didn't come right out and say this is one of the caves of Kessel, but his cryptic tweet was enough to raise eyebrows.

The photo surfaced on the official Ron Howard Twitter this afternoon, with the director tweeting one word, "Spicey?" The spice mines of Kessel were first mentioned by C-3Po in A New Hope, »

‘Lego Ninjago’: Daddy Issues, Divorce & Kung Fu Fighting [Review]

20 September 2017 8:57 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While there may be plenty of reasons to scoff, here’s a friendly reminder that whenever you’re ready to dismiss the next movie announcement based on a brand likea “Pez,” “Monopoly” or “Candyland,” there can be exceptions to the rule. An outstanding little animated picture called “The Lego Movie” was a tooner you sneered at initially too.

‘Lego’ shouldn’t have worked on paper, but clever filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller proved creative minds could build bricks out of anything by using an imaginative take.

Darth Vader Confirmed to Return in Han Solo Movie?

19 September 2017 3:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We have some pretty big news for the still untitled Han Solo movie. It may be exciting to some and groan-worthy for others, but it is still undoubtedly huge. We now have a report that confirms the presence of Darth Vader in the Han Solo movie. It is completely unclear at this point how large of a role the famed Sith Lord will have, but it appears that he is going to be on screen, which brings up a great many questions.

The news comes courtesy of That Hashtag Show, who site "a source close to the production" that has revealed someone was on the set of the Han Solo movie in Darth Vader's armor as recently as two weeks ago. They couldn't confirm who it was in the armor or how much the actor filmed, but he was there. So it appears that once Ron Howard stepped in to »

More Delays Far, Far Away

With the Star Wars: Episode IX getting a new script and a pushed back release date, it should come as no surprise that the movie’s production has been pushed back too.

Return Of Han?

Despite his conclusion in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, GQ Magazine thought to ask Harrison Ford about a possible return to the galaxy far, far away. “Um, I mean, I’m finished with Star Wars if Star Wars is finished with me,” said Ford. And when asked if Star Wars was finished with him, Ford responded: “I can’t imagine it. But it is science fiction.” Read more here.

Phil Lord And Chris Miller Are Rewriting The Lego Movie 2, And It’ll Tackle Gender Differences

14 September 2017 5:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We got a pleasant surprise back in 2014 when The Lego Movie turned out not to be a cash grab by a massive corporation hoping to sell more merchandise but… Well, Ok, it kind of still was that, but at least it had enough respect for the audience to serve up a genuinely funny, smart film along the way. And for that we have directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller to thank. It’s good news, then, that the pair are returning to spruce up the script to the sequel.

Thanks to comments from producers Dan Lin and Chris McKay, we now know exactly which route the duo will head down here. Specifically, the sequel will follow on directly from the ending of The Lego Movie. If you recall, the film closed with Will Ferrell’s previously uptight dad letting his son play with the Lego city he had built. There was one condition, »

John Landis Calls Out Lucasfilm For Firing ‘Star Wars’ Filmmakers

14 September 2017 11:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Lucasfilm‘s Hr department has been pretty busy this summer. Between Phil Lord and Chris Miller exiting the Han Solo spinoff earlier this year over creative differences, while the movie was in the production no less, and Colin Trevorrow removing himself from “Star Wars: Episode IX” for reportedly similar reasons, the keepers of the franchise haven’t come off looking so good. In fairness, there’s no doubt that Kathleen Kennedy’s primary job is to protect the value of the brand at all costs, but it does make you wonder why you’d hire young filmmakers with bold new cinematic voices in the first place, only to mute that talent.
