Star wars fan Adam Schickling created this awesome Star Wars: Episode VII Poster Art "I created this poster at 30x40 in. based on how I thought the Star Wars characters would look in the new movie. Since at this time I know nothing about who will be cast in the film, I thought it would be cool to create a one sheet showing some of our favorite characters from the Star Wars franchise. I had a blast creating this art." (via The Force.net)

Just so I could make my peace with it." (via Blastr)
ODDS & ENDS
- Jon M. Chu talks about the He-Man Reboot “We’re still early, but we’re deep in experimenting. This is the most fun phase for me because we get to try everything we’ve ever wanted to try in ‘Masters,’ and then we get to throw out all the things that don’t work – which is most of it – to know what our right tone is, where we’re going to head with it. And it’s a very important phase because it shows you the direction we’re going to go in the future. We’re very early. We don’t know a lot yet, other than we’re playing around having a lot of fun.” (via ScreenRant)\
