Here’s a round-up of the latest Star Wars news:

  • The most recent rumor outside of Star Wars: Episode VII is that Pixar will now get into the Star Wars game with a collaborative future film.
  • It’s not news, per se, but we have some forced perspective images using Star Wars vehicles that are pretty darn cool.

Hit the jump for more on each story.

star-wars-mark-hamill-carrie-fisherFirst up from TV Guide is news of Star Wars: Episode VII’s planned start date, when we should find the original trio of Fisher, Ford and Hamill on set.  While talking up her TV appearances, the write-up says that Fisher expects to reunite with Ford and Hamill on set in March or April.  As for how she sees her character this time around:

“I’d like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again — but with white hair. I think that would be funny.”

While we wait for official confirmation from the studio itself, a new rumor ties together Star Wars and Pixar in a collaborative movie-making effort under their shared Disney ownership.  Latino Review posits that the animation studio has been given the reins for a Star Wars movie.  Time will tell if this is solid intel, wishful thinking, or just a probability exercise considering Disney’s plan to cross brands and increase awareness.

This next bit is neither rumor, nor faint wisps of news, but rather a visual treat.  Finnish photographer Vesa Lehtimäki shared some gorgeous images using Star Wars vehicle models in forced-perspective shots.  A couple of samples follow below, but head over to Yahoo! for more:
