Felicity Jones announced to star in Star Wars [spin-off][edit]

"Felicity Jones: the force is strong with her." She will star in Star Wars VII. ((NOT! edited later.))

Headline-1: Felicity Jones is the actor Star Wars spin-off is looking for – reports

QUOTE: "The studio has confirmed they are working towards a release date of 16 December 2016, and announced Jones’s appointment after testing took place in both the UK and the US. Jones has recently risen to prominence after being nominated for an Oscar ..." -- AstroU (talk) 05:44, 5 February 2015 (UTC) -- PS: FYI for future editing.

Wrong film mate. - adamstom97 (talk) 06:33, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
You got too excited (extreme Star Wars fan?) Felicity Jones will star in a "stand-alone Star Wars spin-off". -- Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 12:09, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
Sorry. Yes, very excited; but I should have noticed the date in 2016, December. From the article here: "The Force Awakens is scheduled for release on December 18, 2015." Thanks for keeping me on track. -- AstroU (talk) 12:17, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Speaking of 'spin-offs', they seem to be Disney-authorized, based on main characters in the Star Wars plot. RE: [1] "On September 12, 2013, Disney's chief financial officer, Jay Rasulo, confirmed that the spinoffs would be 'origin story films' based on different characters in the Star Wars mythos." -- AstroU (talk) 03:52, 6 February 2015 (UTC) -- FYI.

Yes, from the same site[2]: "At Disney's CinemaCon presentation in April 2013, it was announced that, beginning in 2015, a new Star Wars film will be released every year. The current plan is to alternate between Episodes and spinoff films. If this plan comes to fruition, and the 2015 date for Star Wars Episode VII remains in place, then it would indicate that the first spinoff film would be released in 2016, and then the films would continue on from there beginning with Star Wars Episode VIII in 2017" -- Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 04:00, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

It is said that some aspects of Star Wars VII are firming up with new roles. To quote: "The popular theories have, of course, been that several new characters are related to old ones: (1) Rey = Han and Leia’s daughter; (2) Domhall Gleeson’s character = Luke’s Son; (3) Kylo Ren = Han OR Luke’s son." [3] -- AstroU (talk) 02:22, 22 February 2015 (UTC) -- PS: We can wait and see. Right?

Pictures.[edit]

Some pictures are needed the article its not too long and we only have the the Logo, i we cant obtain a photo from the Film by Copyright Issues at least we could include the first trilogy cast photos and indicate what characters are returning. Or something like this, a lot of text without a sinle picture, its not atractive at least for a film.Mr.User200 (talk) 13:11, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Added some. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 15:55, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
