Star Wars Thread - Spoilers, yo.

Recommended Posts

In 40 years of watching Star Wars, I've never stopped to think why American Lucas used 'metres' in that context.

So this is interesting. Russian Doll series creator (great little Netflix show if you haven't checked it out) is on to do a show:

However, it does feel like everyone and his dog is down to direct a Star Wars show at the moment. Nice to hear different voices though if true.

And The Mandalorian has been confirmed for season 3. Good news all round!

Until they start filming, I'm finding it hard to summon any feelings towards these director/creative announcements. So that's Russian doll person, plus Taika Waititi, plus three Rian Johnson films, not counting the Weiss/Benioff one that never happened, in addition to the ones we know are actually happening in Kenobi, Andor and Mando. That's a lot, so for me it doesn't count until they've actually begun something.

In far more exciting news they've finally started adding Manadalorian characters to Galaxy Of Heroes.

If this hinders the future of Russian Doll then I'm going to be fuming. Disney can fuck off, they're like the WWE of pinching talent now.

There is no future to Russian Doll, it was a brilliant one and done surely.

They should give Dave Filloni the reigns of STAR WARS, with Faverau alongside him. Filloni has done his apprenticeship and knows how to tell an actual Star Wars story better than anyone. Give it to him and i reckon you'll have something special

I'd be very happy with Filoni in a Kevin Feige-esque position, overseeing and connecting things. He's the best person for such a job.

I'm not so sure. A good portion of the Clone Wars is extremely ropey, Rebels had mixed reviews and Resistance was shit, so while he's definitely got a handle on what makes good Star Wars a lot of the fans forget he's not exactly got a perfect record. I think he's probably better suited as a right hand man to someone else. Definitely needs to be more involved with the movies for sure.

Hmm.  Be really interested to see what they do.  Just "uh oh, caught in a time loop again, whoopsie" would be pretty weak.  Hopefully they come up with something as creative as the first season!

In the meantime, I've started watching Orange Is The New Black to get my fix of Natasha Lyonne.

They already did things with the concept the likes of which I'd never seen before so even if they do go down that path, I'm fairly sure they still have a lot for manoeuvre. But I actually reckon they'll do something much different too, and possibly make large cast changes.
