Andy Serkis Says We See a Lot More of Snoke and His Past in ‘The Last Jedi’

John Boyega Can’t Keep His Mouth Shut, Confirms Royal ‘Last Jedi’ Cameos
Ever since we all found out about Daniel Craig’s hilarious cameo in The Force Awakens, we’ve all been wondering who’s going to make an appearance in the next Star Wars movie. Since a lot of the movie was shot at Pinewood Studios, 20 miles west of London, it’d be the perfect opportunity for a few celebrity locals to don a costume and pop on the soundstage for a line or two. We heard a while back that not only would Tom Hardy be making a cameo, but also Princes William and Harry as well — and now, thanks to one of the movie’s stars, we know they’ll all be in it for sure.
The ‘Frozen’ Musical Debuts Its Poster, Plus Seven Others That Were Rejected
Frozen is heading to Broadway, which comes as absolutely no surprise whatsoever. The Disney film remains one of the company’s biggest releases ever, every kid knows at least the chorus of “Let It Go” by now, and I was just in Target today and they’re still selling Anna and Elsa sippy cups. The musical is imminent, and as such it just debuted the official poster.
Disney’s Live-Action ‘Mulan’ Might Have Songs After All
Last week, the Internet entered into something of a panic when it was announced that Niki Caro, the director of the live-action Mulan remake, didn’t have any songs planned for the movie. For those of you who were bereft at the thought of no “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” army training/dance number, don’t freak out yet. While there aren’t any songs in the script right now, that doesn’t mean there won’t be any at all.

Luke Evans Explains the Backstory for His Gaston in ‘Beauty and the Beast’
For many of us, the main draw of the new live-action Beauty and the Beast is Luke Evans’ dangerously handsome Gaston. The classic Disney villain arguably has the best song in the entire original movie, and probably the snazziest outfit of all the Disney baddies. While Belle got a bit of a character upgrade for the new movie (she is now the inventor, instead of her father, because director Bill Condon figured the townspeople need more of a reason to think she’s weird than… she reads books), Gaston also got one too, and it very well might make you like him a little.
How 9/11 Changed the Ending of ‘Lilo and Stitch’
The events of September 11, 2001 changed a lot of things. Airline security got tighter, the War on Terror became a regular national news item, and, overall, the outside seemed a little less safe than it had the day before. The repercussions of 9/11 were also felt as far as Hollywood, with the industry’s output of films based on or around themes of violence, terrorism, and war taking on a more serious, sinister bent. “Post-9/11 horror” and “post-9/11 action” became units students study in film class. A lot of films already in production went through slight alterations: the World Trade Center towers were digitally erased from New York City skyline scenes in movies released after the attacks, and entire scenes featuring the towers were cut. Hawaii is about the furthest you can get from New York and still be in the U.S., but even so, there’s a whole scene in Disney’s Lilo & Stitch that was altered so that audiences watching the film so soon after 9/11 wouldn’t be disturbed.
