I love how Rian Johnson, despite being one of the nicest people in Hollywood aperently, still have a sassy almost trolish side that comes out sometimes . he is a bit like Hamil himself in that regard actually .

I do not love that Disney found a way to make StarWars discussions even worse by bringing aboard the GoT dudes, even if personally think there is a great deal of overblown hyperbole regarding the last season .
Loving that discourse, yay

Oh, don't worry.

I'm sure now that D&D and RJ are working on things together, SW fans will unite and wash away all toxicity.

What could go wrong

I think the premature announcement of Rian's trilogy was an early place holder and vague plan for where the franchise would move next, but after acquiring Avatar and the relative bombing of Solo and their decision to slow down it's not unreasonable to think the plans have changed. Since it likely didn't even exist yet in any form, it's not like he was fired, it just isn't really something until it is. It sounds to me like they still want to keep him in orbit, but he probably didn't have anything solid he was willing to commit for the next star wars slot, and D&D are ready to go. No way is this major drama.

Mildly disappointing though, except for the fact he has more space to make things outside of Star Wars and can probably get bigger budgets. And as Knives Out (and really, most of his films TBH) has proven, people are eager to work with him. Looper had a 30 million dollar budget. Imagine him branching out with bigger budgets on stuff that ISN'T Star Wars. These are his prime directing years.

Iger:

"We did a deal with David Benioff and Dan Weiss, who are famous for ‘Game of Thrones’ and the next movie that we release will be theirs, and we’re not saying anything more about that.”

One movie, didn't say trilogy. Keep the RJ hope alive.

I jammed on Battlefront II for a couple of months around the middle of last year and had a blast. I'm probably an easy please because I don't really play shooters in general. I just wanted some Star Wars. I got more than I expected out of it and I'm thinking of hopping back in soon. How's the population on PS4 these days?

17 years ago (half my life ago!!) I had just turned 17 and on Friday May 17 I saw Attack of the Clones with a bunch of friends and my Junior Year math teacher came with us and bought a bunch of popcorn for everyone. What an incredible movie going experience that first time was. I’ll never forget the audience pop when Yoda ignited his saber and began flipping around like a maniac. I know it’s, like, hardly anyone’s favorite but this movie will forever hold a special place in my heart.

I went and dug up my old calendar/journal from then and expectedly it’s full of priceless gems from that week.
Mon. Watched Star Wars!
Tues. Episode 1 on DVD!
Wed. Freakin our man! STAR WARS COMES OUT TODAY. Went to Walmart got Obi-Wan, Jango and Yoda LEGO!
Thurs. Freaking out about Star Wars! Went to Walmart got Bounty Hunter pursuit LEGO and Luminara Unduli!
Fri. Star Wars II, b-day party!
Sat. Star Wars II !
Sun. Saw Star Wars II again! Got Kit Fisto Jedi Knight!

I was in 4th grade and got to leave school early to go see it on opening day. Even in a sleepy early afternoon showing, the Yoda scene got cheers.

I dunno, I'm not a huge fan of this one because it looks like it has shaky cams. Shaky cams in a cartoon...

I like the shot at 0:10 though.

It's January 2020, you're a little ass kid who just binged watched Star Wars Kids and became a fan of this Star Wars thing, you ask your parents to take you to see the live action movie that just came. Wow, so cool. You ask them when the next one is gonna come out, they say in 3 years. You die from being heartbroken.

Bob Iger did this.

I really dont feel like we are having a 3 year hiatus. That 3 year gap has Mandalorian, Cassian Andor series, and a third live action series.
They could easily release shows and feature films if they felt the demand was there.

I completely disagree with the decision to stay off the big screen for three years.

It still feels like a hiatus to me and what's even worse is that we're still going to be stuck in the Skywalker saga with the TV shows. The cool thing about the new movies is that it was going to give us something completely new that didn't have any strings attached to the past movies. Now we'll have to wait 3 years. Or maybe more, who the hell knows what D&D are doing.

I want them to take as much time as they need to figure out what Post-Skywalker even means for Star Wars. I think we have to accept there’s gonna be lots of trial and error as they figure out what this universe is when they’re not using the OT as the reference point.

Plus more seasons of Resistance and another season of The Clone Wars. Star Wars ain't going anywhere, and it certainly won't feel like it's gone.

I wonder if D&D's movie breaks the all time change.org record.
Only if Robert Pattinson is the lead actor.

I get you on the Skywalker saga. I would be totally down for finding out that the third live action show is something set after Episode IX. How cool would that be? Get Boyega and Isaac on the line. (My heart is forever Rey, mind you, but I get the feeling based on interviews that Daisy Ridley would prefer to take some time off from the gig.)

Don't get me wrong. If it's an Obi Wan piece I'm all over it. And if it's a Solo sequel piece... well, I kinda figured that's the way they'd go ever since last year and I can't say I'd be stoked (let's just say the Disney films are three outta four for me) but I'll gladly take it.

But yeah. Post-IX would be great. Or, y'know, way out there.


Seeing people online compare TLJ to Season 8 of Game of Thrones is blowing my mind.
They're both hella divisive. "The Last Jedi of..." is, unfortunately, going to be a nerd culture catchphrase for a decade to come.

According to the devs, it’s higher than it was a month after launch. There’s a tweet about that floating around somewhere from a developer. I still play it about once a week just because I need as much Star Wars in my life as possible. Honestly it’s good fun. The new capital supremacy mode gives me my conquest/clone wars fix in a big way. Also, apparently they are doing some changes to heroes versus villains very soon which will remove the target system and make a team death match style game mode.

Rian Johnson must be proud. Imagine creating such a transcendent piece of entertainment like TLJ that people can't help but bring it up and argue over it in every corner of nerdom. What an accomplishment.
For sure; you know you've made it in Star Wars when folks are still arguing over your work years after the fact.
