A Lilo and Stitch Headcanon


afafaLilo and Stitch Headcanon:

When Lilo graduated from High School, Grand Councilwoman immediately calls her and tells her that she is really interested for her to become a future Captain of the Galactic Armada, but for her to do that, she will first have to attend G.A.C.C. (Galactic Community College). Lilo is happy for the offer, but she says that she will only accept, if Stitch could go with her.

With the Councilwomans approval, both friends waste no time to pack their bags, excited of what their future brings.

I would watch the shit out of that show.

Why Disney Should Cast a Total Unknown as Young Han Solo

Disney has auditioned 2,500 actors for the Star Wars spinoff

Disney’s rumored shortlist for the role of young Han Solo in the upcoming Solo-centric Star Wars spinoff is making its way around the Internet, and fans are none too happy with the candidates. Miles Teller? He thrives playing utterly spineless and unlikable dudes (see: Whiplash, Spectacular Now, Divergent), not charming rebels. Dave Franco? He’s already 30, and is at his best when his frat boy charm is mocked, not embraced (21 Jump Street, Neighbors). And then there’s Ansel Elgort, who is probably better left playing second fiddle to way more badass Shailene Woodley.

Hey, Disney: It’s a trap! You should not cast any of these guys.

The clear solution at this point is to cast a complete unknown. At this point every actor in the galaxy between the ages of 18 and 30 has auditioned for the iconic role. (Seriously, they’ve auditioned 2,500 actors.) And while there are some intriguing prospects—Mr. Robot’s Rami Malek would be mesmerizing, and Michael B. Jordan proved he has the chops in Creed—a newbie is the safest bet. Casting someone with baggage is a risk that’s simply not worth taking. Remember when pre-bag-wearing Shia LeBeouf was tapped to star alongside Harrison Ford in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? We do.

For the best case for casting fresh faces, look no further than Star Wars:The Force Awakens. Daisy Ridley was a total unknown, and John Boyega’s only starring part had been in an excellent but little-seen British alien flick called Attack the Block that you should go stream right now. They could completely inhabit their roles without seeming like known quantities. And for kids seeing their first Star Wars film (or at least their first one on a big screen), Boyega and Ridley acted as their eyes and ears. As young adults just entering Hollywood, they represented a whole new generation discovering the Star Wars world—its physics, its dirty ships, its secrets. The Force Awakens can thank those two actors for its box office records and much of the critical praise

(Of course, give due credit to Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac, both of whom were better known actors entering the franchise, though by no means household names. Driver brought his intense brand of angst to villain Kylo Ren, and Oscar Isaac—the Internet’s boyfriend—played the perfect snarky but charming hero. But I don’t think either of them would have worked as the two main heroes because those distinct personalities may have isolated some moviegoers.)

A new generation is inheriting this franchise, so a new spin on Han Solo would be appropriate. Perhaps he’s a little bit uncomfortable with his blaster, still trying to figure out his trademark smirk. A blank slate would be easiest to mold into this new take on an iconic character.

And besides, this is Harrison Ford we’re talking about. The man is now the highest-grossing actor in U.S. movie history and the star of some of the most beloved films of our time. Do we really want the third lead from Neighbors taking on his most iconic character?

That said, Chris Pratt does a damn good Harrison Ford impression. Something to consider.

Star Wars: J.J. Abrams Says He Knows Who Rey’s Parents Are

Lucasfilm Ltd. Daisy Ridley as Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Warning: This entire post is filled with Star Wars spoilers

We finally know where Rey is, but that leaves another question for Star Wars fans to wrestle with for the next two years: Just who is Rey?

As we learned in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey (Daisy Ridley) — if that is her real name — was abandoned as a child on the desert planet Jakku, and is quite powerful in the ways of the Force. All that skill raises the question of whether she could be related to another familiar face from the original trilogy.

Some fans suspect that Rey is actually a Skywalker, pointing to the fact that Luke (Mark Hamill) may have recognized her – or at least wasn’t surprised by her presence – in the final moments of Force Awakens. (More fuel for this theory: Rey was drawn to the lightsaber that belonged to Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker before winding up in her possession.) But another theory, posited by EW’s Anthony Breznican last summer and recently catching further fire online, speculates Rey could be a relative of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

So, how much does Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams actually know about Rey’s real identity? “I know quite a bit,” he told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Tuesday. But the notoriously spoiler-phobic producer wasn’t about to spill it ahead of Episode VIII, which will be directed by Rian Johnson.

“Obviously it’s not for me to talk about in this moment because this is Rian’s story to continue now. The last thing I’m going to do is reveal something that he would be upset about. I want to make sure that Rian gets the courtesy that he showed me.”

One would think keeping a secret this monumental would be difficult for just about anyone in the world, but “not for me,” Abrams said with a laugh. Let’s not forget, this is the director who refused to reveal the antagonist in Cloverfield or Super 8 or Star Trek Into Darkness or… you get the point.

With that said, Abrams is just as excited about the next installment as the fans are. “My enthusiasm for Episode VIII is enormous,” he said. “I’m very much excited for and very jealous of anyone, especially Rian, who gets to work so closely with this extraordinary cast and crew, truly an amazing group. In that regard for sure, but I’m also relieved to have gotten a chance to do a Star Wars movie.”

And for those still mourning the loss of our favorite scruffy looking nerf herder, Abrams explained his reasoning behind that shocking moment with Han Solo (Harrison Ford). “We knew we needed to do something that was bold and maybe unexpected,” he said.

During TCA, Abrams also discussed his feelings about the lack of Rey merchandise, teased whether The Force Awakens will have deleted scenes or an extended cut, hinted that Harrison Ford should get an Oscar, said we shouldn’t expect a Felicity reboot, debuted the first trailer for his time-travel miniseries 11.22.63 and revealed his CBS drama Person of Interest was likely canceled after this season.
