    Bryce Dallas Howard. Following in her dad's foot steps. Hopefully she'll have a better experience compared to her dad

    Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok) That will be interesting

    There are two kinds of bounty hunter in this galaxy, my friend.
    Those with loaded blasters and those that get frozen in Carbonite.
    You freeze.

    And what about bounty hunters who fall in the mouth of a sand creature?

    I'm not saying he shouldn't be directing, just that it's interesting that he's doing the premier and not Favreau, since 1) Favreau is writing the whole thing and 2) Favreau is an accomplished movie director. To my knowledge, Filioni has never directed live action (yes I know he was taught by Lucas & there's a lot of skill overlap, but still...) so to trust him with this says that LF has a *lot* of faith in his abilities, which is encouraging if we ever want to see what he can do with a feature length movie.
    They walk it off.

    It could be kind of cool to get some of the voice actors to do live action roles on the show playing different characters.

    I could see most of the Rebels cast pulling off their characters in live action.
    Maybe he was to busy with Avengers 4 and/or The Lion King to be able to direct? Would those have overlapped with this?

    Possibly The Lion King, but his work on A4 would have been done long ago.

    A4 just finished filming last week.

    Or at least Chris Evan's stuff did.

    Interesting how most of these (including Favreau himself of course) seem to be either actors who direct or directors who act. Not sure what (if anything) to read into that, but there it is.

    Jon Favreau posted 2 new images on Instagram of props

    This one appears to be a blaster rifle inspired by one Boba Fett used in the animated short in the Holiday Special

    And then this, which some people speculate is meant to be a reference to the famous Ice Cream maker (a 'computer core' in legends) carried by Willrow Hood in ESB
