I seem to recall they're talking about a 3 year break? Then it was supposed to be D&D's film but now it looks like it'll be Rian Johnson's trilogy


Johnson having his own film(s) on his own terms should prove very interesting. He could use a co-writer though, and there are a good few wonderful choices he could pick from, if he so chose.

But right now I don't think it's at all clear that he'll be doing any SW films. We'll have to wait and see.

I'll sneak this video in while Taf appears to be taking a break, because I'm pretty sure it's his worst nightmare all wrapped up into one minute :lol:.



Obviously, the views expressed in the video do not necessarily represent my own...

I tried reading Tarkin last year and it was dire. I can't imagine reading novelisations of the films. :dread:

I love Star Wars but, especially after seeing the most recent trilogy, I feel like a lot of my adoration comes from KOTOR and the time I spent exploring that universe.

I do really enjoy the original films but not quite as much as most fans, I feel.

See, the problem was reading something that had been rushed out after the Disney acquisition and hoping for something great. Plenty of the novels within the first year suffered from that. Even A New Dawn - which was made exclusively for the new canon stuff (being a tie-in to introduce two of the major Rebels characters) - had such a feeling with it. It was the year where writers played things too safe as they adjusted to not being able to draw on the massive wealth of lore of what once had been a part of the universe. The novelisations are pretty good for everything released since that canon wipe, and even those before the wipe (not counting those of the originals which barely gave anything other than a strict retelling of the film) were great to read. As I've said, the Revenge of the Sith novelisation hits the execution of that story right.

I thought A New Dawn was really good, personally.

Try reading Lost Stars, Lords of the Sith, or the fast multiplying Thrawn books.

Oh, I'm not saying A New Dawn was bad, just that it suffered from playing it safe.

Just about to watch this.

No idea about anything that happens.

Probably due to the response on here not particularly excited about it.

Overall Id probably say I preferred TFA but I did see the merit in TLJ.

Released test footage from 2010 of the cancelled Star Wars TV show "Underworld," which was to take place in the lower levels of Coruscant. The series was set after the events of Order 66. The video game "1313" was to be a tie-in of this series. Due to the immense cost of shooting the series, as well as the selling of Lucasfilm to Disney, "Underworld" was delayed and eventually cancelled.

This footage was produced by Stargate Studios (whose VFX resume includes Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, The Orville) in partnership with Lucasfilm. The VFX technology displayed in the making-of portion is Stargate Studios' impressive real-time rendering Virtual Backlot Live technology.

For more information about the concept art, stories, and development of "Underworld," as well as "1313," this archive has much information: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Ddx ... L5HOY/edit

Why does reading the novelisations in the European Union make you more of a fan?

Find it very interesting that the High Republic stuff is releasing in August, same month as Celebration. There's got to be something hidden in wait as the next part of this venture, and I bet it'll see an announcement at Celebration.
