Yes. By pandering to the fan boys of Star wars.


I watched the first of the sequels and the spin-off films and while they weren't terrible they weren't good.
Disney really hasn't done a good job with a franchise with such possibilities but to be fair Star Trek films haven't been much better either.

It shows a complete lack of originality and willingness to build on the positives of the last film. Although its biggest crime is it badly damages the ending of Jedi the original trilogy and the whole redemptive arc of Vader.


I wouldn't go quite so far, but if it's true it sounds lazy as strawberry float.

Wasn't Palpatine's return in the Dark Horse comics widely regarded as a masterful storyline? :shifty:

Until we know more it would probably be best to hold off on the criticism. Worry, sure, do that.

Neat rundown of the difference between the main Imperial Army and the Stormtrooper Corps.

An Obi-Wan Kenobi series featuring Ewan McGregor is apparently in the works for Disney+.

Assuming it takes place in the decade after Attack of the Clones with the growing power of Darth Vader it could be interesting with him on mini-adventures. It might also be the ditched movie stretched out into 12 episodes.

Ewan McGregor may be picking up his lightsaber again. The 48-year-old Scottish actor is in talks about reprising his role as the heartfelt but headstrong Jedi master known as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a yet-to-be-titled Disney+ series, Deadline has confirmed.

Details about the series following the Jedi master are being kept under wraps. McGregor played the younger version of the wise but irascible Star Wars icon in the three prequel films: The Phantom Menace (1999), Attack of the Clones (2002) and Revenge of the Sith (2005). McGregor also revisited the role to make a voice-only cameo in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015).

Plans to produce a stand-alone Kenobi feature film morphed into the current plan for a big-budget series for Disney+, just as the discussion of a Boba Fett film gave way to the similarly spirited The Mandalorian series.

It may sound like a demotion in status and priority (and a reaction to the disappointing returns on the Han Solo film) but Disney+ is a small-screen venture of colossal importance to Disney. The digital subscription service has become an all-hands-on-deck mission for Disney with a bevy of shows from Marvel Studios and major-budget original programming, such as the high-profile remake of The Lady and The Tramp.

Disney+ plans are expected to be a core component of the on-stage preview presentations at Disney’s D23 Expo later this month in Anaheim. That programming will likely include the introduction of McGregor as a returning screen star in the Jedi universe.

Guess we'll just have to see come D23. I'd definitely like to see it in action, but it sounds like it's not that far into production yet.

Ah well, I'm sure they'll be talking about a lot of what's coming to Disney+ just to get people onto the platform, even if said stuff is still a year or more away.

Very much looking forward to not Boba Fett and not IG-88.

Obi-Wan series makes much more sense than doing a movie. Should've been what Solo was as well. I wonder if the Boba Felt movie was changed and repurposed into the Mandalorian show?

I’m going to have to get Disney+ just for the Star Wars stuff they’ll be putting onto it, can’t wait for The Mandalorian and the Obi Wan series.

I'm hoping they'll be "out there" reasonably soon after release. There's so much on there I'm interested in :slol:

They'll be available within hours of release, probably even quicker.

Rise of Skywalker trailer description form the Verge:
Although Disney hasn’t made the trailer public, we can give you a brief description of what happened since we were there. The trailer opens with footage from all nine Star Wars films. A voiceover declares that there have been “a thousand generations, but this is your fight.” Rey, Poe, and Finn are preparing for the biggest fight of their life. Battleships tear through the skies, as Rey and Kylo Ren meet in the middle of a war-torn planet, ready to fight. The best bit of all? Rey is wielding a red, double-sided lightsaber.

:roll: at the last part. Very JJ Abrams.

Great Rey vs Kylo again, she’s beat him twice and now she’ll be super powered.

She really needed to lose to Kylo once for there to be any sort of danger in the next fight.
