Sounds awesome. While I was super hyped for the Sequel Trilogy, not that they are finishing up I have to say I am more hyped for these spinoffs (Rian Johnson and this). Would love to see the Old Republic on the big screen.

The obvious followup question is what happens to Rian but that should be its own discussion, still, he was said to also be working with Benioff & Weiss, did one project overtake the other? What was the potential partnership? Of course the story from their end is they left amicably and of their own choosing but from all sides what’s the real story?

If I had to guess, we might still see Rian Johnson’s project, but I fully expect whatever Feige has in mind will take center stage, and that’s not bad either.

On paper, Rian would seem the obvious next step, considering vs. Feige he’s been developing for years now and his is a trilogy, plus he doesn’t have any other commitments. On the other hand, the Fiege addition is recent and there really haven’t been any updates on Rian’s films besides “still working on it.” I guess it’s impossible for us to know with the incredibly little information we have.

All I’ll say is this: potential bullet dodged.

I’d still like to see RJ’s trilogy.

PM me for links to my edits; apparently, some feel shy about this.

Thank christ for that! After the way GoT ended not to mention the obvious drop in writing quality and general issues over the last 2-3 seasons when they had no books to adapt from, I seriously didn’t want them anywhere near a script for Star Wars.

Also the last word I heard on RJ’s trilogy is that after many months of him steadfastly confirming it was still happening and in preparation, his tone at a recent interview has changed to “if” it is still happening. Before TLJ I was intrigued with the premise for his trilogy but now I’d be happy for him to not touch another Star Wars movie ever again.

At this point I see TV series like Mandalorian and Kenobi as the way forward for Star Wars and possibly starting to heal the rift TLJ and the ST at large has caused. I am neutrally interested to know what Fiege’s movie will be about though.

I think RJ’s greatest issue with TLJ is he didn’t think of it as the 8th Star Wars movie, or even the second ST movie. Instead he just made his own thing. On it’s own I’d argue TLJ is a good subversion of SW. This is why I am looking forward to RJ.

On the other hand, I’m happy D&D are out.
