I think he'll be scratching his sci-fi itch with Dune, which he wants to be "Star Wars for adults". I just can't see him wanting to do a family film and I think he'd be put off by the behind-the-scenes shenanigans with Rogue One and Solo.
SW has sort of evolved out of being strictly "family entertainment". Sure, it's definitely that, but if you want to your focus can be on more profound and deeper components, as we saw with TLJ.

I have no doubt in my mind that the mere fact that EP8 was created piqued Villeneuve's creative interests.

This is what he had to say about directing one.
It’s something that, again it’s like, I would be intrigued. I don’t know, it’s very difficult. What is dangerous with Star Wars right now is it’s become its own vocabulary. I would love to see them, I think Rogue One was a very interesting attempt to get out of the mold… I think it would be a great idea to get out of there and to go on a new part of the galaxy, that I would be open to
Usually this type of stuff is lip service cus most directors wouldn't say, "nah, fuck that" and will try to give a positive response but he did outright say no to superhero films. He said, I believe, that growing up in Quebec he didn't have American comics but rather European ones, so he has no real connection to them but he does for Star Wars.

I don't think the stars will ever align for him to actually direct one but it is something that's not completely out of the question.

As someone who thinks Boba Fett is a garbage character. A Boba Fett film that's just reskinned Dredd and takes ideas from the cancelled Prey 2 and Star Wars 1313 would be pure kino.

Collider held a Q&A with the Russo's and they spoke a little about what they saw on the set of the Mandalorian:
“It’s amazing. We went down there to say hi to Jon. Taika was directing an episode, so we went to hang out with them. Jon is always at the forefront of cutting edge tech, and he is shooting this in a way that no one has ever shot anything ever before. It’s pretty astounding.”

Stephen Schiff (The Americans) will be the new Cassian Andor showrunner:


Schiff is coming off a five-year stint on the acclaimed FX drama series The Americans, which he joined at the start of Season 2, rising to executive producer and sharing in the series’ two best drama Emmy nominations

It feels so strange to not have a Star Wars movie for this December...my god the wait is going to be painful next year!

Rewatching TLJ

“He vanished with a handful of my students”

Hmmmmmm... wonder if JJ will do anything with this in IX.

Knights of Ren gotta make an appearance, man. Can’t name drop them and not have them in somehow.
They’re even more intriguing now that we know they were former students of Luke’s so they’ll be able to use the Force.

You can probably have a lot of cool fight scenes with those weapons + the Force.

It would be cool to see the Knights of Ren but I don't know that Rey can 1v9 darkside force users

"It's over, Rey. We have the superior numbers."

"No, you're going to love this. Trust me."

"This is a Rey The Force Awakens"


"And this is what is known as a Rey The Last Jedi or you could just call this a Mary Sue."


"And this...is to go even further beyond! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"


Why did I make this stupid ass post.

You condition everyone to expect Star Wars in Christmas and with the one movie that has had a lot of iffy press you decide to release it with only 2 months worth of marketing. Two months.

Bob Iger has done a lot of smart things but I'll never understand the logic behind Solo's release and its marketing.

Wait, Bob Iger is the reason for this?=O
They wanted Christmas lined up so Mary Poppins could destroy the box office (which probably was the smarter investment if early word is anything to go by). It still sucks that there won't be a Star Wars movie to see during the holidays. I've gone with all my extended family every Christmas since The Force Awakens. It's gonna be sad.

I love these animated shorts! I would watch a whole show in this style.

Hi! I just discovered this forum a few days ago and haven't posted anything yet. You've had some interesting discussion and I figured I would have to join at some point haha. I'm about to watch Solo for the first time, which I've been saving for some time. I've heard some good stuff and some bad, I'm curious to hear your thoughts about it after I've watched the film!

Welcome to ERA! And to our SW thread.

Let us know what you think of Solo.
