This definitely seemed the most no-brainer choice, but that didn’t mean it was guaranteed to happen. Everyone talking about it was hopeful fans - never been any word about it in the works (even unofficial), unlike the Boba Fett movie.
For whatever reason I’ve never seen a Daldry movie, but he’s something of an Oscar magnet, so he must be doing something right. A very interesting choice for a space wizard movie, makes me think we’ll get something like Star Wars’s first adult drama, which would make sense if it’s a Ben in the desert movie (though of course that’s yet to be confirmed).
Hope that means Ewan is back. Would be great to see him get the chance to really knock it out of the park this time.
