From Men’s Health

Star Wars creator George Lucas has revealed some fascinating new details about his vision for the franchise in new book The Star Wars Archives 1999-2005, dropping hints about what he would have done differently with the sequel trilogy and explaining decisions he made in the earlier movies.

Arguably the biggest draw of the prequel movies—Episodes I, II and III, released in 1999, 2002 and 2005 respectively—is that they provide fans with a real insight into exactly how a gifted young Jedi named Anakin Skywalker turned to the Dark Side, became feared villain Darth Vader and fathered heroes of the original trilogy Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa.

But Lucas has revealed that when he first announced his intention to introduce Anakin as a child in The Phantom Menace, he was told that doing so would “destroy” the entire franchise.

Why Rupert Grint Gained a Bad Reputation Amongst Harry Potter Film Crew

Nineteen years ago, on November 16th, 2002, we were introduced to the magical wizarding world of Harry Potter with the first film, Harry Potter and The Philosopher Stone. It made instant Potterheads out of viewers, whether they read the books or not. And on November 16, the cast reunited to celebrate the 19th anniversary of the first film, with Rupert Grint opening up about his “bad reputation” on the sets of the film that once even required him and Daniel Radcliffe to shoot their scenes separately.

The reunion was hosted by actor Tom Felton, who played the antagonist to Daniel Radcliffe’s Harry Potter at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Apart from Tom Felton and Rupert Grint, the virtual reunion also saw Daniel Radcliffe, Evanna Lynch, Mark Williams, James and Oliver Phelps, Jason Isaacs, Bonnie Wright, and Alfred Enoch attend.

“My goofy hick dance from ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ makes me laugh every time I see it,” he said. “There was a choreographer there who’d come up and say, ‘I’d like to talk to you about a dance.’ And I was like, ‘I kind of have my own dance I want to do.'”

The dance was so unexpected that Clooney

Boy Scouts Sexual Abuse Case: What Could Happen Next

The Boy Scouts of America bills itself as a high-profile “values-based youth organization” aimed at molding impressionable children into upstanding citizens. But thousands of boys say they were preyed upon by the scoutmasters who were supposed to be their role models—and that Boy Scouts leadership long covered up their crimes.

TIME has confirmed that approximately 92,700 people have now filed sex abuse claims against the Boy Scouts of America ahead of the Nov. 16 deadline set to demand damages from the organization.

The Boy Scouts filed for bankruptcy in February under the mounting financial strain of sex abuse lawsuits. Under the Chapter 11 filing, the organization will reorganize and establish a victims’ compensation fund. A judge set the Nov. 16 deadline to allow alleged victims a final opportunity to file claims.

TIME reported last year that hundreds of men and boys were coming forward for the first time with

A rep for popular British girl group Little Mix has announced that Jesy Nelson will take time off from the band in a statement issued on Tuesday, Nov. 17.

No additional details have been released about the 29-year-old’s health, but the rep has asked for privacy to be given to Nelson during this time.

The news comes after Nelson missed the live final of BBC One’s Little Mix: The Search on Nov. 7 and the subsequent MTV European Music Awards the following day due to similar undisclosed health problems. At the time, a spokesperson for the group said she was “unwell” but did not offer specifics about her condition. The news also comes after the British foursome — made up of Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, and

Megan Fox Says She and Machine Gun Kelly Have a ‘Once in a Lifetime’ Connection of ‘Mythic Proportions’

From ELLE

Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox have made it no secret that they view their connection as supernatural, intense, and rare. And in Kelly’s Nylon cover story, Fox spoke more at length about how she sees Kelly and their bond.

Kelly spoke about how falling in love with Fox made him slow down and care for himself more. “Love is not what’s being encouraged now,” he started. “In fact, it’s exactly the opposite: Everything now is isolation, dehumanization, separation. And fuck, dude, you have in your head that you’re this rock star, with multiple women and all that…” He paused. “So finding someone that can take you out of the fast lane and make sure that you’re safe, because at any minute you can crash—I love that it can evolve into that.”

Fox told Nylon that she has “never” attempted to control Kelly. “It’s more that he looks

Sandra Bullock’s Gray Sweater From While You Were Sleeping Is the Best Part of That Movie

I’m not usually someone who watches the same movies on repeat, but the holiday season happens to be an exception. Each and every year, I end up snuggled on the couch revisiting some old favorites, from Elf to Love, Actually. And, each and every year, I feel extremely envious of Sandra Bullock in While You Were Sleeping, as she walks around wearing my ideal gray sweater.

Although this particular film might qualify more as a seasonless rom-com than a true holiday watch — Lucy (Bullock) gets mistaken for being the fiancé of a man in a coma, then falls in love with his family and, ultimately, his brother — it does take place around Christmas and New Year’s Eve, thus making its way onto my must-watch list. Perks of a 100th viewing include a young Peter Gallagher

Quentin Tarantino Writes ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Book

Director Quentin Tarantino will turn his Oscar-nominated film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” into a novel under a new book deal he signed with publisher HarperCollins, the company announced on Tuesday.

Tarantino’s deal with Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, is for two books. The “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” novelization will mark Tarantino’s first work of fiction in print, and the book is set to be published in the summer of 2021.

The book will not be a straight re-telling of the “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” story with TV actor Rick Dalton and his stunt double Cliff Booth. The novel will “amplify” Tarantino’s original story and give a “fresh, playful and shocking departure from the film,” according to a HarperCollins press release. It will follow Dalton and Booth’s lives both forward and backward in time.

Inspired by the classic movie novelizations that inspired Tarantino, the
