The Ronto Roundup: New Episode VII Set Photos, Rebels Movie Trailer, Ashley Eckstein and MORE!!!


Good morning, Dork Siders! We’re here to get your week started off on the right foot with all of the latest Star Wars news, rumors and more!

On Saturday, the Spanish site 20 Minutos posted some images revealing more up close looks at the recently discovered film set at Greenham Common in Berkshire, England. It’s unknown how they came across them, but who cares? The photos feature the Millennium Falcon under construction, a better look at the now infamous black X-Wing fighter, as well as some lovely shots of the abandoned military base where these ships are presently docked.

For those of you who are avoiding SPOILERS, these new photographs from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII may not be for you.

Everyone else, enjoy.

The premiere of the highly anticipated new animated series Star Wars Rebels is just under two weeks away. Lucasfilm Animation and Disney XD continue to promote the release of the show with yet another trailer.

Enjoy the latest trailer for the movie premiere of Star Wars Rebels, in the video below:

Over the weekend, reports surfaced of an interview with British actor Sir Roger Moore in which he discusses his recent visit to Pinewood Studios in London. While speaking with host Graham Norton, the former James Bond star claims to have witnessed a Star Wars set which featured “…a lot of mountains and snow.”

This could very well mean a return to the sixth planet of the Hoth system, or it might not. Whatever the case may be, our good friends over at Making Star Wars had already heard details of an “ice planet” set at Pinewood Studios, which they reported back in June.

To hear the interview in full, visit the BBC Radio page here.

For some highlights of the interview, read Peter Sciretta‘s report at SlashFilm.

Fans of the popular animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars will no doubt be wishing a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to actress Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano.

Ashley Eckstein is one of the biggest fangirls that the Star Wars galaxy has ever known. Even though The Clone Wars series has ended, she has continued to serve as an ambassador to the fan community, as well as founding Her Universe, a clothing line designed specifically for ladies.
