    So.. Rumour..
    Taika movie seems to be next up, maybe.. As always.. Whenever they roll film I'll believe it.

    Also Lucasfilm seems to think that Solo was a bomb because of the recast of Han..(dumb) .. So that may be the reason there going whole hog on the deep fake like Luke instead of recasting a younger actor/actress to legacy roles.. Which sucks..

    Yes, I read that today. That's what Kathleen Kennedy said. It's unfair. We get a Lando Calrissian series but bringing back Alden Ehrenreich can't be done?

    I thought Alden and Donald crushed it myself with their performances. As a movie, Solo was fine but I’d like to see the characters with their own story where we don’t need to see how Han’s pants get their bloodstripes.

    I'll be blunt and say I think they are quite wrong, however, this is also a place where Lucasfilm has tried to push hard in to with a variety of different deepfakes. It's pretty clear that it is a technological frontier that they want to explore, which I do welcome. I may disagree with the rationale, as I found Solo quite enjoyable and watchable, but if they are going to push technological development then I will at least be curious to see what happens.

    I wouldn't hold my breath for that series... Glover's got lots else to do, and there doesn't seem to be much interest at Lucasfilm in exploring the actual OT war years.

    I have a feeling if we get another movie or series focused on the OT characters when they were younger, we'll get new actors.
    You can get away with the CGI characters for a smaller supporting role in movie, or an episode of TV, but I just can't see it being practical for the lead character in a big blockbuster movie, or an entire series.

    I read the Vanity Fair Kathleen Kennedy interview. Lucasfilm did a big, splashy tone teaser for Rogue Squadron as their next movie, but now Kennedy says "we kind of pushed off to the side for the moment. Patty is developing the script further. Then we will talk about how that connects to the central spine that we’re working on."

    She also said, of the rumored Kevin Feige project:

    "[That’s] the rumor mill. Kevin, I think everybody knows, is a huge Star Wars fan. He’s clearly been inspired by Star Wars in the way in which he’s handled Marvel. I know he’s got a lot on his plate right now. I would love to see at some point what movie he might come up with. But right now, no. There isn’t anything specifically on the horizon." [UPDATE: This interview with Kennedy was in March, and last week screenwriter Michael Waldron told Variety he was working on a script for the rumored Feige project: “We’re finally into it in earnest.”]

    So, in two months, the Feige project went from "[not] specifically on the horizon" to active development. In short: can anything this CEO says concerning the franchise's future plans be trusted?? :rommie:

    Why should I care? Talk to me when it's in the theaters.

    Press releases and interviews are junk, to be polite.

    This.

    Whatever you thought of The Last Jedi (it was good I will fite u irl) at least he tried to do something interesting with the setting and didn't just default to fan pandering.

    They also take place weeks or months ahead of publication, so any comment as to how soon a thing is happening is usually deliberately vague.
