Writers rooms aren’t committees, arguably movies could stand to implement the practice as well.

Nothing wrong with a writers room especially with a series there’s too much material for the auteur approach which I also wouldn’t want here. It’s the people above the writers, the producers and executives deciding which creatives get replaced and have ultimate say over which direction to take the story, this latest change doesn’t mean to imply the production is doomed, it’s a little concerning, a lot concerning if it continues to happen. What it seems like is they haven’t totally made up their mind yet, so it still could be all for the best I just personally hope Lucasfilm swings for the fences rather than plays it safe. I’m not rooting for anything to fail.

Leia Organa isn’t a committee

A writers room can be called a committee to some degree, although I don’t think a “committee” is even necessarily a bad thing. What’s important is who you put on it

To that end, I don’t know that this guy is a good guy to put on it, much less at the head of it, but then again a lot of people probably would have side-eyed the appointing of “The Eyes of Laura Mars” director to the Star Wars sequel back in 1978, too. The Jurassic World guy was seen as a bad pick to head up the 9th Star Wars movie and then it turned out he had a better feel for what it could have been than the guy who made the 7th installment. Committes aren’t inherently bad, but staffing them poorly is.

I do think the last 20 years of television includes some of the best filmmaking period in that that time, and some of the biggest and most substantial achievements in filmed storytelling have happened in that medium, so I agree with Dom that the film industry (in whatever form it eventually assumes once we get through this upcoming recession/depression) could stand to crib heavily from how TV is doing things. It’s hard to argue with results on both a cultural and a storytelling scale like we’ve seen in the past 2 decades.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Will Use Same VFX Technology As The Mandalorian’:

'Ewan McGregor has suggested that the Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+ will use the same groundbreaking visual effects techniques as The Mandalorian.

In an interview with ACE Nation, McGregor, who appeared in George Lucas’ Star Wars prequel trilogy, teased some behind-the-scenes details about the upcoming Obi-Wan spinoff series. In particular, he lauded today’s VFX technology and how much it has evolved since his involvement with the saga in the early 2000s.

“I think I am going to enjoy it much more,” he admitted. "[The prequels] were all blue screen and green screen and it was hard to imagine, but nowadays I think things have moved on so much, and I think a lot of what you see is gonna be what we see on the set.

“I don’t know if you’ve seen the behind-the-scenes of The Mandalorian series, but they employ that incredible screen… it’s pretty amazing. It makes you feel like you’re in the place, it’s going to feel realer for us, as actors. And I think we’ll be using some of that technology on our show.”

For The Mandalorian, Lucasfilm utilised a cutting-edge technology, known as “StageCraft,” that projects high-resolution imagery onto LED screens, which wrap around sets to create reactive surroundings for actors to immerse themselves into their environments.
 

The Obi-Wan Kenobi series, which was originally set to be a movie, is set to take place 8 years after Revenge of the Sith and will be directed by Deborah Chow, who helmed episodes of The Mandalorian. Joby Harold also recently signed on as a writer for the series, even though its production has been on hold since the beginning of the year.’

 

^ Cool news that they’ll be using the same tech as used on The Mandalorian for this series - and also a cool video interview with Ewan McGregor 😃
