REPORT: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ New Clip, The Other ‘Inside Out’ Trailer and ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ Concept Art (Spoilers)

Even if you aren’t a fan of Disney, there is probably little doubt you’ve heard some of the news coming out of the annual shareholder meeting that was held earlier today at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco: a Frozen 2 sequel is in the works and Star Wars: Rogue One is headed to a galaxy near you in 2016.

And then there are the parts you didn’t get to hear and see, the clips — unless, of course, you were in the at-capacity audience. Fortunately, I was one of them and I am about to detail (to the best of my memory) what I heard and saw when the live stream was blocked.

‘Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens’ Trademarks Reveal New Character, Captain Phasma

Star Wars: The Force AwakensLucasfilm and Walt Disney Studios recently announced the names for several of the characters featured in the trailer for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (December 18, 2015). On December 11, Lucasfilm went ahead and registered several related applications for several of these characters, including: BB-8, the ball-droid; Kylo Ren, the sith; and Poe Dameron, the X-Wing Fighter pilot.

Among the registrations, however, were many for a ‘Captain Phasma,’ for which we were unable to find any previous documentation outside of an extensive fan-fiction titled Tarkin’s Fist and random usernames.

Is Lucasfilm’s ‘Winter Tale’ Another ‘Strange Magic’ Surprise?

If announcing Strange Magic just a couple of months before its theatrical release is any indication, Lucasfilm has some pretty interesting cards up its sleeve that it seems ready to produce at a moment’s notice — providing it’s when it’s least expected.

Recently, a new title appeared on Amazon.com for pre-order, titled Winter Tales Junior Novelization with the only clue being that it’s a tie-in to a feature film — a feature film that appears to have the same internet presence as Strange Magic did prior to its unveiling. Other than that, all that’s given is it’s 128 pages and slated for a release of March 3, 2015 March 1, 2016.
