There is an amazing podcast called The Cine-Files featuring filmmaker Steve Morris and media presenter and actor John Rocha. Throughout over fifty podcasts they’ve covered some classic films in their discussions about film, filmmaking, and the overall enjoyment of film. A couple of weeks ago they did one on Harrison’s film BLADE RUNNER in advance of the sequel BLADE RUNNER 2049 to come out in October starring Harrison who will reprise his role of Rick Deckard and Ryan Gosling. This podcast is a good primer for your enjoyment of Ridley Scott’s cult film also starring Rutger Hauer (Roy Batty), Sean Young (Rachel Tyrell), Joe Turkel (Eldon Tyrell), Daryl Hannah (Pris), Joanna Cassidy (Zhora), Edward James Olmos (Gaff), M. Emmett Walsh (Bryant), James Hong (Hannibal Chew), William Sanderson (J. F. Sebastian), Morgan Paull (Holden) and the late Brion James (Leon). The incredible score was composed and conducted by Vangelis, and features stunning visuals from Douglas Trumbull (“2001: A Space Odyssey”) and Syd Mead. In this podcast both Morris and Rocha cover the background of the film’s production, plus the legacy of this film including the various editions Ridley Scott made. I’ll include all links to Steve and John’s social media pages after the jump. . John and Steve have also done podcasts on STAR WARS directed by George Lucas, and their very first podcast was dedicated to the Steven Spielberg film and Harrison Ford classic, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, both of which I will post here at a later date, for now please sit back for about two hours and enjoy this aural pleasure

MOVIE WEB – Last week, we reported that Disney and LucasFilm will debut the full-length Star Wars: The Force Awakens documentary Secrets of the Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey at the SXSW Film Festival today. This documentary will be part of the bonus features on the upcoming Digital HD and Blu-ray Combo Pack release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and in case you weren’t able to see the documentary in Austin, we have a sneak peek from Good Morning America, along with a new trailer. The sneak peek includes plenty of behind-the-scenes footage, along with excerpts from John Boyega’s actual audition tape.We also see footage from the now-iconic final shot, where Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) meets Rey (Daisy Ridley) on his island sanctuary, with Mark Hamill revealing that “this feeling” came over him for the first time since he was on the Tunisia set for the original classic, Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. We also hear from Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), and Adam Driver exclaims that it was such a hassle to put on his Kylo Ren costume, it helped him get into character.This preview also explores the famous scene where Kylo Ren kills his father, Han Solo (Harrison Ford). Adam Driver revealed that this particular scene “terrified” him, while Harrison Ford stated that the scene “resolved” his destiny in a “powerful and effective way.” In addition to this sneak peek, we also have a full trailer for Secrets of the Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey, along with photos from the SXSW premiere, featuring J.J. Abrams and R2-D2, along with several of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens visual effects artists.

VARIETY – Harrison Ford won’t have to venture to a galaxy far, far away for his next “Star Wars” role — the man behind Han Solo will give fans a first look at the “Star Wars”-themed lands coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts as part of ABC’s upcoming TV special, “The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60.”

 

Ford will preview the two park expansions during the two-hour Disney special, airing Sunday, February 21 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

 

Previously announced guests for “Disneyland 60,” which will be hosted by “Dancing with the Stars” champ Derek Hough, include Elton John, Josh Gad and Hough’s “DWTS” co-star Witney Carson. Hough and Carson will perform a dance tribute utilizing music from Disney’s most popular properties, while John will debut a new song, “Wonderful Crazy Night,” in addition to performing his Oscar-nominated “Circle of Life” from “The Lion King.”

 

Gad — who voiced Olaf in Disney’s animated hit “Frozen,” and will next be seen in the company’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast” remake as LeFou — will take viewers on a tour of Walt Disney’s private apartment and the Disneyland Dream Suite on the special. The Los Angeles Philharmonic, conducted by music and artistic director Gustavo Dudamel, will join the celebration performing “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” from Walt Disney’s classic animated film “Fantasia.”

DEN OF GEEK – Han Solo would have made a brief appearance in 2005’s Revenge of the Sith. Ryan looks at the cameo that never was…

 

This article originally appeared on Den of Geek UK.

 

In 2018, lovable scoundrel Han Solo will get his own standalone adventure (or solo movie, if you prefer). Since 1977, the scruffy nerf-herder’s been synonymous with the actor who so perfectly brought him to life, Harrison Ford. Indeed, it’s now difficult to imagine anyone else in the role.

 

At one point in Star Wars’ casting, Christopher Walken was one of the actors in contention for the role. As Kevin Spacey highlighted in his sublime impression of Walken as Solo, the character – and Star Wars history in general – would have been very different had Ford not won the part.

 

The success of the 2018 Solo spin-off movie (which doesn’t have an official title at the time of writing) undoubtedly hinges on who’s cast as Ford’s replacement as the young smuggler. Among the actors reportedly on the shortlist to play Solo, you’ll find such names as Scott Eastwood, Miles Teller and Dave Franco; but whoever’s cast, will audiences accept anyone other than Ford as Solo? This is perhaps the greatest question Lucasfilm-Disney currently faces in its post-George Lucas Star Wars saga.

 

In fact, Lucas himself was once faced with the task of finding an actor to play a young Han Solo. By 2002, Lucas was already two-thirds of the way through the task of writing and directing his Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. For better or worse, The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones were finished and released. Critical responses varied to say the least, but it was difficult to argue with their performance at the box-office.

 

So it was that Lucas faced his final challenge of his prequel saga: he had to sit down and write the third chapter, Revenge of the Sith. Everything in the earlier movies built up to this final act: Anakin’s fall from grace. We’d finally see how Obi-Wan’s good friend became twisted into the masked, thoroughly evil Darth Vader.

SLASHFILM – The hype and buzz around Star Wars: The Force Awakens is starting to die down along with the film’s box office haul (it lost to The Revenant and Ride Along 2 last weekend), but that doesn’t mean there isn’t cool stuff to hear about the sci-fi blockbuster. In fact, just one day after the film hit theaters back in December, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences had a conversation with some of the key filmmakers on the film, including director J.J. Abrams, producer Kathleen Kennedy, writer Lawrence Kasdan, star Harrison Ford and more. That conversation is finally available to watch online.

 

Here’s the Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel from The Academy Conversations:

 

In addition to the aforementioned names, the panel also includes production designer Rick Carter, visual effects supervisor Roger Guyett and costume designer Michel Kaplan. Even though it’s only a 15-minute talk, they provide some decent insight into their mindset when taking on such a Herculean task as making a new Star Wars movie.

 

Lawrence Kasdan talks about intentionally evoking the feeling people had when they saw the first Star Wars while Harrison Ford talks about how he genuinely had a great time every day that he was on set. That probably doesn’t apply to the day a hydraulic door broke his leg, but you get what he’s trying to say.

 

You can check out even more cool chats with the filmmakers and cast members from some of 2015’s biggest movies, such as The Hateful Eight and Creed, at the Oscars YouTube page right here. And if you’re looking for some more recent insight into the making of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, check out our interview with Neal Scanlan — creature & droid effects creative supervisor, creature shop concept designer, creature shop head — and SFX supervisor Chris Corbould.
