I’m looking forward to seeing what Taika Waititi will do with this project - and can bring to Star Wars overall.

Lucasfilm are too stingy on the details for their announced projects for my own liking 😉 Even a hint of what it may be about, or the timeline etc, would be most welcome…

Well there’s no way this can be the next movie coming out in 2022. Thor: Love and Thunder is coming out earlier in the year, and a Marvel movie is no small undertaking.

Curious to know of who of the known writers/directors is doing the 2022 film. I’d hope we get an announcement this year, but maybe we won’t…it’s not like they’d have to start shooting till Fall 2021, so it might not be till next year we even find out who’s or what that movie is.

Anyhow, count me in as excited! I really enjoyed Jojo Rabbit. And he did an admirable job with the season 1 finale of The Mandalorian.

The only thing I could see people complaining about, is his tendency to focus more on comedy. I think he’s excellent at it, but I know many disliked those types of jokes in the sequel trilogy.

That said, I’ve been the person that’s been advocating for “genre movies” for Star Wars, like what was originally promised for the anthology series, and we saw Lucasfilm pull a 180 on that. So hell if someone wants to make a funnier Star Wars movie, go for it!

Although it’s looking to be unlikely, I hope Rian Johnson is the one helming the 2022 film.

You got that right, it’s not 2015 anymore these non announcements don’t even generate any interest with me, pics or it didn’t happen!
