‘Rise of Skywalker’: J.J. Abrams Teases Palpatine, Leia & Debuts Extended Clip at CCXP

With CCXP underway in São Paulo, Brazil, director and co-writer J.J. Abrams took the stage with cast members Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, and John Boyega to discuss the making of the Skywalker Saga conclusion and offer a few tantalizing (but very very vague) quotes about what we can expect in the much-anticipated finale decades in the making. Of course, one of the …

J.J. Abrams Teases Whether the Force Will Find Balance in ‘Rise of Skywalker’

It was an interesting day for  Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams and stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac on Saturday because the Star Wars quartet made an appearance at CCXP 2019. While it was fun to see the foursome presenting a clip from Rise of Skywalker, basking in the love from fans in the audience, and answering different questions about their time working on the movie, for a majority of their visit it felt like no new news related to hints about what to expect would be revealed.

New ‘Rise of Skywalker’ Featurette Highlights Friendship Among the Cast

Disney is really aiming for your heartstrings with their Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker featurettes. The newest one highlights the friendship between Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac, but it’s also a worthwhile selling point for the movie since this will be the first (and presumably, only) time that Rey, Finn, and Poe are all on adventure together rather than being split up or paired off in different ways like we saw in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. What funny about this marketing campaign is that it’s wisely going after your emotions rather than …

Right after dropping the first image from WandaVision at CCXP 2019, Kevin Feige sat down in the Omelet interview suite to offer a few more tantalizing details on the Disney+ series starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany. The Marvel Studios President noted that Disney’s streaming service offers opportunities to dive even deeper into the characters we’ve seen on the big screen.

First ‘WandaVision’ Image Sees Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany Going Old School

Marvel Cinematic Universe head honcho Kevin Fiege stopped by CCXP in São Paulo, Brazil, and he brought along plenty of intriguing teases for the future of the MCU. That includes a very interesting first look at WandaVision, the Disney+ series starring Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany’s Vision. The image renders the two MCU heroes in glorious, old-school black and white, which gels with the strange 1950s sitcom vibe that early buzz has been hinting toward. (The footage we saw all the way back at D23 mixed MCU clips with, of all things, The Dick …
