Happy to hear that they are planning another trilogy, interesting that it is taking a different direction with it.

Happy to hear they are planning a live action tv show as well. But like strawberry float am I subscribing to another streaming service. I wonder if it will see a delayed release on tv across the world. I’m not sure if the Disney sub service is going to be available in every country.

Darth Sidious' origin story?
Boba Fett's entire life?
The Old Republic?
Captain Rex's role in the Rebel Alliance, post-Yavin? (Haven't watched Rebels yet, don't know if he survived it.)
Ahsoka?

Lots of potential ground to cover.


If it's a corner of the galaxy never before explored, then I doubt any of your suggestions will be correct. ;)

If it's meaningless PR mumbo jumbo, then they might be right. ;)

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

Yeah it’s very difficult to work out what they mean. It could simply be that it will focus on some planets and characters never seen before but still set in the established timeline, just after or just before. Or it could be set hundreds of years (or more) in the past or future with nothing to do with the other films or jedi’s/sith’s.

New characters and worlds are a must, and new time periods are a necessity - but I remember reading an article just a few days ago that said Disney wanted to do more stories with Finn and Rey, post-IX. So, just how new this will be, I don't know.

I really wish they hadn’t of killed off Jyn in Rogue One, they easily could have made a further film set in the original trilogy with characters from Rogue One. I think that decision was very short sighted.

I think the final third, which makes the film, would have nowhere near the impact if they didn't kill them off

Plus, they needed a film in which plot armor didn't save the protagonists for the umpteenth time.

Yeah I get that. Part of me likes the ending and thinks it was a good move by them but another part of me would like to see another film of the same tone with some of the characters set in the original trilogy.

A Rogue Squadron or X-Wing VS TIE Fighter type movie could fit the bill, if done right. Largely unconnected to any known characters, with a few references here and there, it could show the rougher side of the Rebellion, similar to R1, but different too.

Or they could transplant the Firefly concept into Star Wars' universe.

Why would they have wanted to do that? There were no interesting original characters in that film.

Well that’s your opinion. I liked the film. I liked Jyn, the two Chinese dudes and K-2SO.

Just booked our tickets. 8.30 am 2d showing, so hopefully a bare minimum amount of kids will be there and most of the scum won't have scraped themselves out of bed yet.

Also our local cinema has upgraded every seat in there to a big leather recliner :toot:

Cheers for reminding me to book tickets, weren't that many left for the time I wanted.

Have gone for an IMAX showing on Sunday afternoon.
