October 22 - Christopher Lee to use Lightsaber
This report is from TF.N. and gives us quite a bit of information about Lee's character.
King Jedi sends this in:
I've just got my copy of Star Wars Magazine U.K and in an interveiw with Rick McCallum he confirms that Christopher Lee's character will be using a lightsaber. He also says that he never thought of Lee for the role because he was looking for someone "tradditionaly more evil". I think this is the first time that it's been confirmed. In the same interveiw with McCallum he says that the filming they did in Spain was for part of Naboo and not Alderaan as everyone thought.

Update October 14 - Complete List
September 3 - Lucasfilm Domain Names - Character NamesTF.N and Episode-X have recieved lists of domain names registered by Lucasfilm. They could hold clues to new character names. One of them is a long rumored name of a certain character. Some of them are names of characters from TPM. Here's the list: Highlight to read - Update complete list:
August 22 - Anthony Daniels and C-3POThe Official Site's "On Location" features Anthony Daniels this week. He talks about his role in bringing C-3PO to life. After watching this I began to wonder just when 3PO puts on his coverings. This is just speculation but Highlight to read:The new video reveals that C-3PO will not be completed when Anakin returns to Tatooine. It appears that 3PO is the exact same "puppet" that they used in Episode I. This probably means that 3PO recieves his coverings later in the movie. It is even possible that we won't see him "clothed" until Episode III.End Highlight
August 22 - New Spy Photos Hit the NetTemuera Morrison is featured in costume that looks very familiar and we get to see a Jedi and other good stuff. Follow this link to see them. Want some speculation and possible spoilers? Highlight to read: The rumor that Morrison is playing Jango Fett, the father of young Boba, has been around a while now and this picture may change some doubter's minds. It appears to be very similar to Boba Fett's costume. Although it could be a new costume all together. I personally hope tha Morrison will be playing Boba Fett, but I'm sure Lucas knows what he's doing. Follow the link above to see it.End Highlight
August 3 - HUGE News - Pictures from the set!!
Here he is; Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan is Episode II. Looks pretty cool! Sir Steve's Guide posted 7 images from the set of Episdoe II, but he got them from somewhere else. Truly awesome!
July 27 - Walkin not in Episode IIThis comes from TheCrankyCritic.Com where they recently interviewed Walkin. Here's what he had to say:
The words from his mouth: "People have been telling me for six months and really it's very interesting. I even asked. I said maybe I am in it and they're just saving it for a surprise. But I'm not in that movie. Never was. I don't know how that happened. Maybe somebody put it on the internet. I tell you frankly that the only place I've ever heard that is by way of rumor."
July 27 - Ray Park News
There has been some confusion about whether Ray will be appearing in Episode II and many rumors stating he is in the movie. At this time Ray has not received word from Lucasfilm regarding an appearance in Episode II.
Well, I was hoping that Park would help with the fight scenes in Episode II but I guess not. Too bad.Visit Ray Park's Website.
July 2 - Australian TV show "Premiere" with new character information
This comes from TheForce.Net
Leana Walsman spoke of how she is playing the 'skilled bounty hunter' and she said that 'it is cool to play a baddie'. Rose Byrne spoke of how she is playing a handmaiden and she and Leanna were chosen by Gurland after Gurland saw them in a play called 'La Dispute'. Rose mentioned how 'we are just people' after speaking on the status Star Wars has and the affect it could have as an actor. Joel Edgerton was also interviewed and spoke how 'he is playing Anakin's step-brother, Uncle Owen'. Now the 'step brother' part brings some deeming questions, or was it just a mistake? Does that give us a plot clue? Or not.....hmm....
