The first trailer for Jimi: All Is By My Side has landed, and we must say, it looks like André 3000 filled Jimi Hendrix’s shoes quite nicely. The biopic will chronicle the early part of Hendrix’s career, starting around 1966 when his music first debuted. Ironically, none of Hendrix’s original work will be featured in the September 26 flick, but, as The Huffington Post puts it, “it won't matter.” [Vulture]

It’s been 20 years since Pink Floyd released an album. Come fall, that is all going to change. Thanks to an announcement from guitarist David Gilmour’s wife, we can confirm that the band is ready for a comeback. The project will be called The Endless River, and is “based on 1994 sessions [and] is [late founding member] Rick Wright’s swan song.” [Rolling Stone]

And then there were... two more. In their latest production update, the powers that be behind Star Wars: Episode VIIannounced that two newcomers have been added to the A-list cast. Emerging talents Crystal Clarke and Pip Andersen will be joining Lupita Nyong’oGwendoline Christie, and AdamDriver in the space opera.[Variety]

Speaking of the J.J. Abrams project, it’s been put on hold due to Harrison Ford’s set-induced injury. The 71-year-old actor broke his leg while filming in London last month, pushing production back two weeks. Here’s to hoping we still have a December 2015 release. [Huffington Post]

Once Upon a Time has finally “frozen” over. After unveiling Scott Michael Foster and Elizabeth Lail as the live-action versions of Kristoff and Anna, showrunners have crowned their queen. Fringe star Georgina Haig is landing in Storybrooke, Maine as Queen Elsa in season four. [CNN]
