The new film will focus on Luke Skywalker, Princess Leya and Han Solo and their children as well.

GLENN CLOSE IS 'DUCHESS'
FAKE ANASTASIA ROMANOV
In other movie news today, Deadline writes that movie legend Glenn Close will play fake princess Anastasia Romanov in DUCHESS. In the movie directed by Arie Posin, and produced by people who produced Glenn's ALBERT NOBBS drama, she will play Anna Anderson, the woman who claimed to be the Grand Russian Duchess Anastasia! The film is described as a dark road-trip comedy based on true events and covering the last days of Anna and her American husband Jack Manahan. After the courts forcibly put Anna into a retirement home in Charlottesville in 1983, Jack kidnapped her, and together they evaded the authorities across rural Virginia hoping to experience the honeymoon they never had.
GOLDEN GLOBES 2014 FASHION
THE BEST DRESSED
Without any doubt Lupita Nyongo stole the show in her divinely caped red Ralph Lauren gown, while Julianne Margulies also looked refined in her black gown elvenly decorated with golden branches. Sofia Vergara was breathtaking in her simple black ballgown.
Also looking fine, were Cate Blanchett in her intricately laced Armani, Julie Delpy in red asymmetry, Amber Heard in midnight blue and Maria Menunous in a pink dress which was see-through in all the right places!
Olivia Wilde was cute covering her pregnant belly in forest green Gucci, while Mila Kunis and Kate Beckinsale were quite toned down. I also liked Emma Thompson's golden lace uniform, although it would've looked better if the black skirt was longer.
Tones of them opted for floral designs, some of them looking good in it (Drew Barrymoore) and some of them looking shockingly trashy (Jacqueline Bisset and Heidi Klum).
Some of the looked like they were wearing parachutes: Michelle Dockery clumsily wore a sequinned parachute, Sandra Bullock a colourful one, Jennifer Lawrence a modest one, while Paula Patton decided to drape her parachute over the shoulder. None of them looked good.
THE FREAKS OF THE EVENING
Emma Watson looked ridiculous in a red dress with black pants underneath and horrid mismatching shoes, Lena Dunham looked like mustard gone bad, Zoe Deschanel stole the outfit from her granny dearest, Naomi Watts looked pale in deeply unflattering Tom Ford, while Zoe Saldana disappointed in an overly busy dress.
