'Star Wars: Episode VII' Start Date, Fake Title Revealed?

LucasFilms LucasFilms

We're all looking forward to seeing Disney and J.J. Abrams carrying on various staples of "Star Wars" and a UK fan-site seems to have revealed another example.

Super-fans know that "Return of the Jedi" (originally titled "Revenge of the Jedi," until a very educated super-fan pointed out the philosophical problem with that title) went under the working title "Blue Harvest" back in 1982, to hide the production from the prying eyes of press and people dressed up like Darth Vader. ("Blue Harvest" has since been referenced by Family Guy, The Simpsons, Dark Horse Comics and more.)

And this was before TMZ existed, so imagine the secrecy that is going to be required for "Star Wars Episode VII." It looks like the sneaky working title this time around is going to be "Foodles."

Yes, as in, the Disney themed snack product at the grocery store. Get More »

Harrison Ford's Comic-Con Experience In 6 Snarky Comments

Harrison Ford is not necessarily known for his kind demeanor and warm manner, especially when it comes to his dealings with pop culture aficionados. The 71-year-old actor doesn't come near a lightsaber or whip these days, avoiding almost any and all fan gratification or throwbacks to the roles he's most famous for, Han Solo and Indiana Jones.

In 2010, Ford was led out onstage in Hall H of the San Diego Convention Center for his very first appearance at Comic-Con, the annual gathering of the nerd tribe. The actor was handcuffed, accompanied by two police officers. For his efforts, fans greeted him with a minutes-long standing ovation.

All this is to say that while it was surprising that the notoriously grouchy Ford came back to the convention — in a promotional push for the upcoming "Ender's Game" — it was to the surprise of no one that he got a little, well, sassy.

Ahead, here are our six favorite snarky comments Harrison Ford has made at Comic-Con, accompanied by his best "you have got to be kidding me" facial expressions at Thursday's Hall H panel. Get More »

'Ender's Game': Orson Scott Card Wants You to Tolerate His LGBT Intolerance

Summit Ent. Summit Ent.

UPDATE (7/12/13): Lionsgate has now issued the following official statement to Deadline:

"As proud longtime supporters of the LGBT community, champions of films ranging from 'Gods and Monsters' to 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' and a company that is proud to have recognized same-sex unions and domestic partnerships within its employee benefits policies for many years, we obviously do not agree with the personal views of Orson Scott Card and those of the National Organization for Marriage. However, they are completely irrelevant to a discussion of 'Ender’s Game.' The simple fact is that neither the underlying book nor the film itself reflect these views in any way, shape or form. On the contrary, the film not only transports viewers to an entertaining and action-filled world, but it does so with positive and inspiring characters who ultimately deliver an ennobling and life-affirming message. Lionsgate will continue its longstanding commitment to the LGBT community by exploring new ways we can support LGBT causes and, as part of this ongoing process, will host a benefit premiere for 'Ender’s Game.'"
