I'm still mad that Rian didn't put in the take where Luke says Rey was tempted to the darkside over some pretty eyes because it means Rian thought Adam Driver had pretty eyes.
Thats because we getting a live action Ahsoka series on D+ directed by Filoni.
Heir to the Jedi has an implied sex scene and I will die fighting for that to be canon because Luke deserves that win. A tragically (frustratingly) ended (fridged) win, but it’s something at least.Halfway through Queen's Shadow and I can't quite tell if Sabe is supposed to actually be in love with Padme or not.
Also it seems like all of these YA novels - except for Ahsoka - have sex scenes (or at least implied) and the adult novels don't. Lost Stars, Rebel Rising, LPOA, etc. all had them lol
Although I think Dark Disciple had one?
Portillo and Ridge hint that -- just as a few Easter eggs from another TV series called “Star Wars: Rebels” popped up in the 2016 movie “Rogue One” -- fans just might see parts of “Resistance” cross over to future films or live action shows. ”There are things that fans will be very excited about,” Ridge said. “Obviously, we don’t want to give away too many secrets.”
This, more or less. He wasn't in the cast announcement, so I don't think it's on him to randomly reveal he is in the movie. So by all "official" communications, he is not in the movie. He could just be playing ball, or it was just an empty rumor after all. But it's one picked up by reputable sites, and not your usual clickbait mills or reddit.
Seriously, if they really pull that off they have my respect.Now that's...weird. I thought he had been confirmed to be in it, but was it really just a rumor this whole time?
MSW seemed pretty certain that he was in it at least. This honestly kind of makes me think he's (THIS ISN'T A SPOILER BUT I'M PUTTING IT IN SPOILERS IN CASE THE GUESS IS CORRECT)
Plagueis or reborn Palpatine like in Dark Empire. Why else keep it so secret?
For what it's worth, the variety article wasn't an official cast announcement. It came from "sources". Granted, that's about as official as you can get without it coming straight from starwars.com, the dude is almost certainly in (or was at one point supposed to be in) the film, but I think there is wiggle room:Matt Smith was officially cast in a Variety news piece and everything. So it’s not a secret that he is in it that he would have to be hiding.
He is likely being snarky about not being in it since it’s cgi or something. That or he is not sure if he is allowed to say if he is in the movie or not, not being aware it was announced already.
THR and Variety are basically never wrong when it comes to casting announcements, which means he's either in the movie or his part got cut (possibly the source of his confusion?).For what it's worth, the variety article wasn't an official cast announcement.

Not saying it isn't what you suggest either. It's a very valid read and what I also assumed before I went back and checked to see where he was announced.
