New ‘Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge’ Teaser Arrives with Anthony Daniels Joining the Cast as C-3PO

Published

on

There may not be a new Star Wars movie arriving in theaters this holiday season (there might not be any blockbusters arriving in theaters this holiday season), and theme parks may still be closed, but Lucasfilm is making up for it by releasing a new virtual reality video game experience called Star Wars: Tales from Galaxy’s Edge.

Set in the Black Spire Outpost from the Disney theme park attraction, Star Wars: Tales from Galaxy’s Edge will send players on a VR adventure on the Oculus Quest where they will explore the planet of Batuu, a landscape that will evolve over time. Helping you along the way will be a familiar friend as Star Wars saga cast member Anthony Daniels has joined the cast of the game as the reliable but paranoid protocol droid C-3PO. See him in action in a new Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge teaser below.

Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge Teaser

If you missed the first sneak peek at Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, here the synopsis for the VR game:

In Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, fans play a droid repair technician who crash lands on Batuu after a pirate attack. In typical Star Wars fashion, they’ll quickly get swept up into a grand adventure on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost. Players can converse with Seezelslak in his cantina and be transported to other places and times in the Star Wars galaxy through his legendary tales. They can also receive important missions to complete in the wilds of Batuu, encountering new and iconic characters along the way, like the pirate Tara Rashin.

Anthony Daniels has played C-3PO dozens of times, ranging from the Star Wars saga films to TV shows, video games, theme park rides, and more. So it only makes sense that Lucasfilm brought him in to reprise the role for the first time in virtual reality. Daniels said in a statement:

“Along with the joy of working with the super-talented team at ILMxLAB, I am so thrilled to bring C-3PO to life again in this fascinating dimension. I love it that fans will actually be able to be a part of his perilous adventures, standing beside him, on the distant planet of Batuu. It may be virtual reality, but believe me, reality will quickly take over as players personally interact with C-3PO right in the middle of the action. I hope fans will be as amazed as I am.”

Since you’re a droid technician, will you be able to make him to shut up when he inevitably tells you the odds of something? Doubtful. Because that droid doesn’t stop talking for anything unless you shut him down. Even a memory wipe didn’t take him out in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Goldenrod won’t be the only familiar Star Wars character making an appearance in Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge either. Players will also run into Yoda when they experience one of Seezelslak’s legendary tales. I think it’s safe to say that there will be plenty of other familiar Star Wars characters popping up too, and we’ll probably hear more about them as the holiday release of the game gets closer. Stay tuned.

The Lion King 2 Is Happening at Disney with Moonlight Director Barry Jenkins

Published

on

By

Get ready once again enter the circle of life, as it has now been announced that Disney is moving forward with a sequel to last year’s hugely successful live-action remake of The Lion King. The follow-up is set to be directed by Barry Jenkins, who’s coming-of-age drama Moonlight won the Academy Award for Best Picture back in 2017.

The Lion King 2 will once again make use of the groundbreaking photo-realistic computer animation that brought the first movie to cinematic life. Jeff Nathanson, who wrote 2019’s The Lion King, is also returning to write the sequel. The movie has not yet been given a release date or production start date, but considering the huge financial success of the first Lion King, it is likely a high priority for Disney.

While specific plot details for The Lion King sequel are being kept tightly under wraps, the sequel will reportedly delve into Mufasa’s past. Rather than being a prequel, however, the movie will progress the story of the main characters from the first movie at the same time as exploring Mufasa’s origin.

“Helping my sister raise two young boys during the ’90s, I grew up with these characters,” Barry Jenkins said of the sequel. “Having the opportunity to work with Disney on expanding this magnificent tale of friendship, love and legacy while furthering my work chronicling the lives and souls of folk within the African diaspora is a dream come true.”

A sequel to the animated movie titled The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride was released in 1998 and follows Simba’s relationship with his daughter Kiara after she escapes Timon and Pumba’s care, venturing into the forbidden lands and befriending Kovu, the son of Scar. Whether the live-action sequel will take any elements from this remains to be seen, but it is possible considering that The Lion King ends the same as its cartoon predecessor with Simba and Nala being presented with their newborn cub.

The Lion King is a remake of the beloved Disney animated classic from 1994, and follows a young lion cub named Simba who, after the murder of his father, flees his kingdom. Years later, a chance encounter with Nala, a lioness, causes him to return and take back what is rightfully his. Along the way (and because this is a Disney movie) he learns the true meaning of responsibility and bravery while earning his place as king.

The Lion King is directed by Iron Man’s Jon Favreau, and stars the voices of Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver, Florence Kasumba, Eric Andre, Keegan-Michael Key, JD McCrary, Shahadi Wright Joseph, and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, as well as James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa from the original animated movie. There is no word yet as to whether or not members of the original cast will return for the sequel, but it is highly likely that an effort will be made to bring them all back to the kingdom of Pride Rock.

The Lion King was a box office triumph and quickly went on to break a $1 billion, as well as entering the top 10 highest-grossing movies of all time, continuing the huge success that Disney has seen so far from their live-action remakes. This news was first reported by Deadline.
