Extraordinary ‘Star Wars’ Set Photos Bring the Jedi Back to Life For Female-Led Series

Star Wars: The Acolyte set photos? A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one! Credit: LucasfilmA significant departure for Lucasfilm, the new Star Wars series The Acolyte promises to break fresh ground for the franchise. With very little to go on at this point, fans have been buzzing about the prequel series, set 100 years before the events of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (1999) in an era dubbed, “The High Republic”. This will be yet another foray into this era, following the release of an entire book series bearing the name of the era itself, focusing on the Jedi Order of the time.

A “mystery-thriller”, according to Lucasfilm and showrunner Leslye Headland, the High Republic era Jedi Order will be investigating, and confronting forces that are “are more sinister than they ever anticipated.”. Whether or not Acolyte will connect with the Skywalker Saga in any way has yet to be disclosed, but the plot will at least lay the groundwork for the return of the Sith, and the eventual rise of Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) in the prequel trilogy.

Warner Bros. Pulls ‘The Flash’ In Stunning Challenge to Disney

After racing all over the release schedule, DC and Warner Bros. have now actually pulled the long-awaited The Flash (2023) movie forward in their calendar. Credit: Warner Bros.The movie, directed by It: Chapter One (2017) director Andy Muschietti and starring the controversy-stricken Ezra Miller, will now release a week earlier than previously slated — dropping on June 16 next year, replacing the previously scheduled June 23. The shift gives the speedster a longer lead on Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (2023), which it was previously set to go up against when that Harrison Ford tentpole drops on June 30 next year. Credit: Warner Bros.The move now places it in direct competition with Disney Pixar’s Elemental (2023), which also releases June 16. Box office pundits have noted the shift to place the hero spectacle up against a Pixar original is a sign of the shifting approach to theatrical; where studios would once have run scared of a Summer Pixar property dropping, they now enter the box office fray unafraid to challenge the lamp. On Twitter, @Luis_Fernando_J said: There was a time when no studio would open a movie head to head with a Pixar animation on SUMMER. Not anymore.WB moved up #TheFlash from JUN 23 to JUN 16, 2023, head to head with #Disney’s #Elemental, giving the #DCU film 2 weeks before #IndianaJonesAndTheDialOfDestiny on JUN 30 There was a time when no studio would open a movie head to head with a

James Cameron Says Disney World May Get Another ‘Avatar’ Experience

Walt Disney World is full of exciting rides, attractions, and experiences and with rides such as Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT and the upcoming TRON roller coaster at the Magic Kingdom, things are only getting better. But one of the most popular attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort has to be Flight of Passage. Located in Pandora in Animal Kingdom, this attraction blends mechanics from other attractions such as Soarin’ and Star Tours. Credit: Inside the MagicRelated: Very Popular Disneyland Ride Closing Indefinitely Next Month It first opened in 2017 to staggering wait times of 4+ hours, and still, years later, we can expect that during busy times of the year, wait times will climb to those large waits once again. Typically, the ride had around a two-hour wait, which is still pretty long for many! The attraction is a flight simulator that allows us, Guests of Animal Kingdom, to hop on the back of a banshee by linking to someone who is Na’vi. Through this, we are able to deeply explore Pandora, the world of Avatar, through sights, scents, and movement. We recently reported on some Guests complaining about the state of the attraction, and now, those worries continue to grow. The entire world of Pandora at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is incredible and something you definitely will not want to miss. And with a brand new entry in the Avatar franchise releasing in just a week, we are sure the land is about to have
