A '<strong>Rumour and News</strong>' thread for reported new Star Wars films and tv series
Time

Kennedy said here today that the ST will still return, at some point: https://www.empireonline.com/movies/news/kathleen-kennedy-talks-emotional-obi-wan-reunion-star-wars-sequel-characters-exclusive/

As one of the seemingly-few people on here who actually likes the ST, I hope this is true and that it happens soon.

‘Star Wars: Ahsoka’: Natasha Liu Bordizzo To Play Sabine Wren In Disney+ Series’ by Nellie Andreeva

Outlets like Deadline, The Hollywood Reporter and Variety tend to be very reliable and often get information from big studio representatives themselves. Both Deadline and Variety have reported this. It looks like we have our Sabine, guys.

What are your thoughts on the casting?

Good news! Looking forward to finally seeing the loose ends from Rebels tied up.

A '<strong>Rumour and News</strong>' thread for reported new Star Wars films and tv series

Okay it’s now being reported that there will be both a High Republic movie and an Old Republic movie. The High Republic movie will go first (in 2023).

The High Republic film (set a couple hundred years before the Skywalker saga) is during a time when the Sith are basically a myth. The movie will apparently be small-scale and small-budget and aimed primarily at kids. A reliable source said a few years ago that Rian Johnson’s movie was gonna be “Rated-G Star Wars,” so I’m guessing this is probably his.

The Old Republic film (set thousands of years in the past) is almost around the time when the Jedi and Sith first formed and were both in their primes. It’s apparently gonna be big-budget, big-scaled and aimed more at general audiences. A reliable source said last year that Taika Waititi’s movie would deal with the origins of the Jedi in some way, so I’m guessing this is probably his.

Its also now being reported that Chloe Zhao (the woman who directed Nomadland and Eternals) will be directing Kevin Feige’s Star Wars movie (which is separate from the two projects above). Feige came up with the story idea, and Michael Waldron (who runs the Loki show) is fleshing out the script. We still don’t know anything story-wise about this one.

Patty Jenkins’s Rogue Squadron movie is “delayed indefinitely” (aka canceled) and JD Dillard’s Exegol movie hasn’t been talked about since it was first announced in 2019 so I think it’s safe to call that project dead too.

<strong>Star Wars: Rogue Squadron</strong> (theatrical film for 2023) - a general discussion thread

So, it’s looking possible we might not get a Star Wars film in 2023.

Well, the scooper who claimed this film was going to be delayed three days in advance did also say that the Xmas 2023 slot would be replaced by an Old Republic film, so I have a feeling we will still see a new theatrical star wars release in the next 25 months.

Time for Falcon and Winter Soldier! Then Loki! I wish they’d give some release dates for the Star Wars series. Right now we only know when The Bad Batch is coming (May 4th). Still looking for Obi-Wan, Boba Fett, and Visions dates for this year. Everything else is later.

Boba Fett is confirmed for December and will be immediately followed by Mando Season 3, then Andor in February 2022, and then Kenobi in May 2022.

Visions will apparently happen in 2021, according to Kennedy at least, but yeah no exact release window has been given for that one yet (which is odd).

Final theories before the finale airs:

I think that blonde chick Dottie is really Arcana Jones (another witch from the comics). I think “Ralph” doesn’t really exist and was just a red herring. I think Evan Peters is really the X-men quicksilver (I don’t think they’d tease us by having him NOT really be him). I don’t think the aerospace engineer Monica talked about will be anyone special. I think vision and the kids will both survive. Lastly, I think the person in witness protection that Jimmy Woo was talking about is Dick Van Dyke (and this is the cameo Paul Bettany was talking about).

The Unpopular Film, TV, Music, Art, Books, Comics, Games, &amp; Technology Opinion Thread (for all you contrarians!)
Time

if anyone is interested, I just published an article summarizing my thoughts on the current Superman movie reboot situation: https://henrynsilva.blogspot.com/2021/03/man-of-reboots.html?m=1

I suppose this could be considered an “unpopular opinion,” cause I’m fine with them getting rid of Cavill.

The Last Jedi: Official Review and Opinions Thread ** SPOILERS **

JJ completely kneecapped Rian before Rian could even shout action.

We never saw a movie in canon take place immediately after the previous.

In star wars it has always been easy to make a character grow simply by letting time pass offscreen. Rian couldn’t do that, & while it would have been great to see atleast a year pass like Hal mentioned in his commentary so the change in atmosphere & things could have felt a little easier to accept.


I am happy with TROS (Hal’s edit remedies alot of my initial issues) it is literally this generations Return of the Jedi, and when you look at the movies from a production stand point they are very similar, so i am okay, kids will grow up and look at it as their ROTJ and that’s nice… but there is a part of me that wishes JJ would give the audience the middle finger and subvert the formula.

JJ has never made something that makes the audience think past the surface, and star wars doesn’t need to be so deep at times, but i would have killed to see something that made me feel different with each viewing.

For some reason I didn’t see this post before so I just wanted to come back here and say that these are my thoughts exactly!

I just wish it were more confident in itself.

I’m not a huge fan of how they had to take an entire third of the show out to hit us over the head with Outside The Hex exposition from [lame] characters spouting faux-science at computer monitors. It’s just relatively uninteresting. Monica Rambeau and her team are the typical weak, generic blockbuster stuff that I could do without.

We should have stayed exclusively with the sitcom stuff and slowly discovered what was off through Vision. How it all came to be didn’t even have to be as convoluted or fleshed out as it ended up being, especially when the important parts of it are really just Wanda’s emotions and psyche.

I commend that they even did something like this in the first place, but those ambitions are held back by trying to cater to all attention spans. This could have been really good, and not just mildly interesting.

I agree that the sitcom stuff is more interesting than the SWORD stuff and should’ve remained as the main focus of the show.
