Spencer Wilding, who wore the Vader suit in last year’s “Rogue One” — James Earl Jones, of course, voiced the Sith Lord — was slated to appear at Fandom Fest in Louisville, Kentucky.

19 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sky is streaming into the Spanish market. Issuing results Thursday, CEO Jeremy Darroch said the European pay-tv operator intended “to launch a simple and affordable Ott service in Spain.”

For the fiscal year ending June 30, Sky said it registered a 5% increase in revenues of £12.9 billion ($16.9 billion) but a 3% slip in Ebita profit of £2.1 billion, as the increased costs of Premier League soccer rights and other investments kicked in. Operating profit, at £1.5 billion, was down 6% year on year for the U.K.-listed company.

Sky also said it will boost its investment in Sky Originals by 25% to give it an edge over Amazon and Netflix. “Local dramas such as ‘Babylon Berlin’ in Germany, ‘Britannia’ in the U.K., and the return of the third season of Italian crime drama ‘Gomorrah’ illustrate our strength in local programming that other Svod providers cannot match,” the company said.
