New STAR WARS Novel Claims That Luke Skywalker Can Pull Down Star Destroyers With The Force

We know that Luke Skywalker was one badass Jedi by the conclusion of the original trilogy. But apparently, that was just the tip of the iceberg. In Ken Liu’s new Star Wars novel, fans will be treated to a series of myths and tall-tales involving Mark Hamill’s Jedi Master. The Legends of Luke Skywalker is available for purchase now, and it looks to include some new insight into Luke’s breathtaking abilities.

Liu’s book is considered canon, but all of its stories are told through the lens of a cargo crew bound for Canto Bight – the same city in which Finn and Rose begin their “dark mission” during Star Wars: The Last Jedi

YouTube channel Star Wars Theory recently uncovered some new details from Liu’s novel which reveal that Jedi Luke is able to bring down entire Star Destroyers using only the Force. Remember all those derelict wrecks scattered across the Jakku desert? Turns out Luke may have been the one responsible for bringing the Empire’s fleet out of the sky.

In the story, an imperial gunner on a Star Destroyer recalls the terrifying moment he sees a hologram of Luke just before the ship crashes out of the sky. In the book he says:

“The bridge went dark. The overhead lights, the view screens, the blinking lights on the banks of consoles. Even the emergency lighting strips on the floor. All around us was the darkness of space…I saw that the bridge windows were rapidly filling with expanding columns of energy… A jolt, as if the entire Star Destroyer had been picked up by a giant hand and slammed against the ground. The ship slowed, drifted, stopped and then the stark lifeless surface of Jakku swung into view, filling the windows, and we fell, we fell.

This gives us a glimpse into one major event that Luke was involved in between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. And though it is hard to imagine the once Farmboy Luke pulling a giant metal piece of pizza out of the sky, this may give us a glimpse into what we may see from Luke in The Last Jedi.

This story reminds me a lot of a sequence from the Lucasarts Video Game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Below, I embedded a clip of Starkiller bringing down a Star Destroyer with the Force, now just picture Luke in his place pulling down ship after ship in the battle for Jakku

Russell Crowe to Star in TRUE HISTORY OF THE KELLY GANG From ASSASSIN’S CREED Director Justin Kurzel

Oscar winner Russell Crowe along with George MacKay (Captain Fantastic) have officially joined the cast of director Justin Kurzel’s True History of the Kelly Gang. The movie is based on Peter Carey’s novel, and follows notorious bushranger Ned Kelly (played by MacKay), one of the world’s greatest outlaws, and the colonial badlands from which he rose.

Deadline reports that Crowe and MacKay will join a cast that includes Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Sean Keenan (Strangerland), Dacre Montgomery (Stranger Things), Harry Greenwood (Hacksaw Ridge), Thomasin McKenzie (My Abandonment) and Earl Cave (Born to Kill).

The script is by Shaun Grant, and filming for the production will begin in March 2018, they will be shooting in Victoria, Australia.

Crowe, who won the Oscar for his role in Gladiator, was last seen in Universal’s The Mummy reboot as Dr. Jekyl (and Mr. Hyde).

Kurzel last directed Michael Fassbender in Assassin’s Creed.

So far no release date has been announced for True History of the Kelly Gang. Here’s the description from the book:

“I lost my own father at 12 yr. of age and know what it is to be raised on lies and silences my dear daughter you are presently too young to understand a word I write but this history is for you and will contain no single lie may I burn in Hell if I speak false.”

In True History of the Kelly Gang, the legendary Ned Kelly speaks for himself, scribbling his narrative on errant scraps of paper in semiliterate but magically descriptive prose as he flees from the police. To his pursuers, Kelly is nothing but a monstrous criminal, a thief and a murderer. To his own people, the lowly class of ordinary Australians, the bushranger is a hero, defying the authority of the English to direct their lives. Indentured by his bootlegger mother to a famous horse thief (who was also her lover), Ned saw his first prison cell at 15 and by the age of 26 had become the most wanted man in the wild colony of Victoria, taking over whole towns and defying the law until he was finally captured and hanged. Here is a classic outlaw tale, made alive by the skill of a great novelist.

STRANGER THINGS Creators Explain Bob’s Connection To Stephen King’s IT

stranger-things-creators-explain-bobs-connection-to-stephen-kings-it-social.jpg

The creators of Stranger Things, the Duffer brothers, recently opened up to Vulture about that Stephen King reference featured in the third episode titled “Chapter Three: The Pollywog” when Bob Newby (Sean Astin) gives Will (Noah Schnapp) what turns out to be some not so great advice, but it sounds awfully familiar. Fans recently pointed it out, but now the creators of the show are opening up about it.

In the scene, Bob recalls a recurring nightmare he experienced as a child in which he was terrorized by a clown named Mr. Baldo. He even goes as far as impersonating the Clown from his nightmares which ends up sounding a lot like an impression of Tim Curry’s iconic take on Pennywise the Clown from Stephen King’s IT

During their recap Matt explained that Bob’s fear of clowns comes from their own and that they took this opportunity to connect to the author whose stories serve as a major inspiration for the series:

“Well, we both have a problem with clowns. I’ve had it my entire life. I had it when I was really little, so when there were clowns at a party, it was a real problem for me. Then in 1990, we saw the It mini-series and Tim Curry’s performance as Pennywise really messed me up. Like, it scarred me in a major way. It was one of the first true horror things I had seen, and I had not experienced Stephen King before. That was my first experience with Stephen King, so that was a really huge point in my life. It was two weeks, at least, of no sleep because of that. So yeah, I think [Bob’s clown story] was really me describing something that just freaked me out. I didn’t have that experience myself. I just had nightmares like that.

I’m sure we were just like, ‘It would be cute if [Bob] suggests moving to Maine, right next to Stephen King.’ Stephen King exists in this world. Some of the characters have read Stephen King. But Bob definitely does not read Stephen King. He’s not interested at all in Stephen King because he hates that kind of story.”

Stranger Things 2 is now streaming on Netflix and stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, and Noah Schnapp. The second season has added Sean Astin (The Goonies), Paul Reiser (Aliens), Brett Gelman (Jobs), Dacre Montgomery (Power Rangers), Danish actress Linnea Berthelsen, and Broadway star Sadie Sink.

Variety reports that the film will be directed by Chris Prynoski from a script written by Jess Rotter, Michael Reich, Jessica Hundley and Mike Pinkney

Seems like we’re getting more and more adult-centric animated films. It will be interesting to see if this movie is as risque as Sausage Party. What do you think, do we need more animated movies like this?

Jon Hamm has been expanding his acting range as of late taking roles that the actor has not done before, like in Baby Driver. Now Hamm is set to star in the supernatural thriller Off Season, which based on writer-director Jonathan van Tulleken’s BAFTA-nominated short. It’s set in the harsh, frozen Canadian tundra. Hamm goes looking for his elderly father who has mysteriously disappeared, his feverish search exposes shocking family secrets buried but not forgotten by vengeful forces at work.

The director explained to THR why landing Hamm in the lead role was so important to the film:

“Hamm in the lead role is the kind of good fortune few first-time filmmakers are a orded,” said van Tulleken. “I never imagined I’d have the opportunity to do this with such a highly esteemed team around me. Nira Park and Miles Dale are two of the most gifted and respected producers working in film.”

Off Season is being produced by Nira Park (Baby Driver) through her Big Talk Pictures and J. Miles Dale (The Shape of Water) under his Demilo Productions banner.
