New MSW podcast is up, Jason's saying Feige is taking over for KK as president after Indy 5; I have to wonder who takes over for Feige at Marvel when he's gone.
Also yay, fan service force ghost scene is back on the menu, boysreddit summary said:• Jason asked sources if the Star Wars roadmap at D23 was complete, was told it wasn’t.
• Jason heard that Kathleen Kennedy will step down as LucasFilm president after Indiana Jones 5 but will still produce movies. Kevin Feige will run LucasFilm but will have separate divisions run by other people.
• MSW doesn’t know if Wedge Antilles is in TROS. Jason heard last year that Dennis Lawson had visited the set in Pinewood multiple times. Thinks maybe he is in TRoS because of the Resistance Reborn book cover and the set visits but sources haven’t confirmed anything for him.
• Jason backs up JediPaxis saying that Kylo Ren faces off against the Knights of Ren (Bespin Bulletin was the first to break Kylo v KoR). Says originally he heard that Ben gets beat up by the KoR before defeating them with the force. He’s now hearing that somehow Rey gives Ben Anakin’s lightsaber to take out the KoR. * Says the gist of the Palpatine line at the end of the upcoming trailer is him saying, ‘Good’.
• Jason was told he was right about the opening of the film with the camera panning down to a forest planet showing Leia and Luke training then cuts to Rey and Leia training (I think JediPaxis reported this first). The source told Jason that it’s not the case anymore.
• Jason feels bad and a bit like a fraud because he’s saying things are changing due to reshoots.
• Says the chase sequence on Pasaana shown in the teaser happens after they’re discovered at the festival. Poe hacks the speeders and they go in search of Ochi’s ship.
• Jason said he doesn’t know when it was changed but that Luke and Leia no longer show up to help Rey defeat Palpatine but instead a group of Jedi from the past do. The sources told Jason that they don’t know who’s in that line-up at this moment.
• Thinks the Ochi stuff has been really cut down and the Rey’s parents stuff has - Rey’s parents will be shown getting murdered on Jakku.
