Famed Star Wars “Holo-Chess Table” to Make Appearance in The Force Awakens

HitFix just reported that Adam Savage, caught up in the moment accidentally leaked that the famous holographic ‘Dejarik’ game table aboard the Millennium Falcon would be in use during The Force Awakens.  It certainly is a small detail, but one can only imagine the cheers that will go up opening night when the audience sees iconic set-piece from ’77 brought front and center into 2015; dredging up the feelings they had when watching A New Hope for the first time.

Benicio Del Toro as villain in Episode 8?

"The Wolfman" American PremiereEW has just reported that Benicio Del Toro has had dealings with Lucasfilm to be cast as the villain in Star Wars: Episode 8.  It should be noted that this in no way means it will be Del Toro in the end who gets the role, as many actors enter into talks with directors over roles and few go any farther than the talk itself.  It does however, show Lucasfilm is on the ball with episode 8.

A fun little bit of Star Wars trivia: Benicio Del Toro almost landed the role of Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace, but left the project when George Lucas removed most of Maul’s lines from the film.
