“That said, the Star Wars universe has always been one of my biggest influences, and I couldn’t be more excited to witness its future alongside my millions of fellow Star Wars fans. I want to thank my friends Kathleen Kennedy, Kiri Hart, Simon Kinberg, and everyone at Lucasfilm and Disney for the amazing opportunity to have been a part of this. May the Force be with you all,” he added.

Lily James Couldn’t Contain Tears Over Cinderella Costume

Lily James ‘burst into tears’ over Cinderella costume. The English actress, best known for playing Lady Rose MacClare in the period drama Downton Abbey’s eyes were full with tears at her first sight of the gown she would be wearing. The twenty five year old Wrath of the Titans actress, who will portray the orphan in the upcoming remake of the classic Disney film was mentioned by costume designer Sandy Powell that James just couldn’t hold back her tears when she tried on the iconic gown her character is wearing to the ball

Asked what it was like working with her, Sandy said:

”Lily was just excited by everything! She practically burst into tears every time we put her in a new costume – the first time she put the ball gown on she was like hyperventilating, saying, ‘I feel like a little girl in my dream dress’.”

The three-time Academy Award-winning costume designer – who took home the Oscar for ‘Shakespeare in Love’ in 1999, ‘The Aviator’ in 2005 and

‘The Young Victoria’ in 2010 – also spoke about working with Cate Blanchett for a third time on the new movie.

She told Grazia magazine:

”If you have already worked with somebody you are already half-way there, you really are because you know their physicality, you know what suits them, you know what they like, you know how they are going to be in a fitting, you know whether they are going to be helpful or not helpful.

”You are half-way there and it really, really helps. I actually can’t design a costume unless I know who the person is and it is even better if I know who the person is and I have touched them, and I do!”

Elton John Almost Could Of Had ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ Cameo (Video)

Elton John almost had a cameo in the Spy Spoof ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’.The English singer and pianist could have been getting rave reviews just like What a Girl Wants star Colin Firth is or his energetic performance in the ultra-violent new spy caper,

A spy organization recruits an unrefined, but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

Director Matthew Vaughn was trying to make this happen, but as he explained plans fell through for John’s cameo.

during a recent interview with ABC News Radio, saying he’d written a handful of scenes for John, but was ultimately forced to cut them from the script because they just didn’t work.

“I was umming and ahhing ’cause it had a whole fun subplot about celebrities being kidnapped. And I had an idea of, who’s the worst celebrity you’d want to have locked in a cell? And I came up with Elton John,” said Vaughn. “Having Elton John throwing these huge tantrums. And then I wanted to do an action scene of Elton John kicking the living daylights out of people.”

It sounds like a comedy goldmine (and the kind of thing Elton knows how to do pretty well in real life, too), but Vaughn ran into too many problems along the way. “First of all, the celebrities said no,” he pointed out. “And then I just got uncomfortable with, how do you have celebrities playing themselves, opposite famous actors playing another role? The suspension of disbelief suddenly becomes harder to pull off.”
