future of now star wars Worryingly hazy. Lucasfilm has a bunch of Disney Plus shows in various stages of development Ahsoka, Skeleton Crew, The Retainer, And internal management and Season 2 is either shooting or in pre/post production but the news is on star wars‘ It’s hard to find a real home on the silver screen.

We recently learned that Patty Jenkins rogue squadron Kevin is no longer moving forward with Feige’s project (which apparently never left the planning stages). That leaves Damon Lindelof and Taika Waititi untitled movies, though fans don’t seem particularly excited for either of them.

But the mandalorian Co-creator Jon Favreau may know more than he’s letting on…

In an interview with Moovy TV, Favreau was asked about plans for the latter-rise of skywalker Story. So far, Disney and Lucasfilm have been reluctant to tell any stories set after that film, with only non-canon lego star wars holiday special And Star Wars: Visions Leap into the future.

But Favaro said something big could be announced soon:

“Because the sequel trilogy only takes place over the course of a few years. And it’s a big deal on screen, and it’s very eventful. But this is a relatively brief moment in the history of the thousand years that Star Wars has taken place. And so what happens after that is also interesting, and I know there’s some discussion, exploration going on about what happens after that.

This falls in line with Kathleen Kennedy’s comments late last year that some projects would go “beyond existing sequels”. Everything we’ve heard indicates that this will be Lindelof’s film, with a completely different story from Waititi’s story with original characters. We can expect some sequel trilogy characters to return, though whether we’ll ever get to pick up back to continue the stories of Rey, Finn, and Poe remains to be seen.

rise of skywalker The sequel was a disappointingly disappointing end to the trilogy, so we’d love to see these characters again in a film that’s a little better thought out. Another fun option might be to jump even further into the future, where the name ‘Skywalker’ is just a legend.

The current canon is getting too tight to tell new stories, so a Star Wars: Legacy-genre storytelling allowed creative teams to spread their wings and tell new stories from the movies we saw a few hundred years ago.

‘The Acolyte’ will arrive in the courtroom before Disney Plus

Looks like there’s going to be a lot of bloodshed in the upcoming show retainer, Deadline is reporting that former executive producer Karen McCarthy has filed a lawsuit against Lucasfilm in connection with her dismissal from the show last year. As per the documents filed. McCarthy turned down an offer from Apple TV to work with Colin Farrell Sugar In favor of retainer, although it was shelved after only two weeks of working on it. McCarthy claims that her termination was “without any explanation, without any reason, without any justification,” with the documents saying:

“As a result of their bad faith and wrongful termination, defendants deprived Ms. McCarthy of significant employment that would have earned her millions of dollars over the life of the chain.”

Despite this, McCarthy was still expected to be compensated according to his contract with Lucasfilm, though they came back with an offer of just $5000 for a day’s work (which sounds pretty cool to us…). Now, she is seeking an unspecified amount of damages that is likely to be in the millions. So, depending on whose lawyers are better, Lucasfilm could be due a huge bill very soon.

‘The Mandalorian’ Creators Break Down the History of the Darksaber

we are now on episode two the mandalorianAnd it looks like the legendary Darksaber will be at the core of the story. This unique lightsaber made its debut on the show in the season one finale, was won by Din Zareen in combat in the season two finale, and is now in his arsenal. Despite his extensive weapons proficiency, Din has still not mastered its use.

It looks like one of the characters in the main plot of the season will become the new Mandalore, so expect more Darksaber action to come. But seasoned fans will know that the weapon has a long history. star warsIts origins lie with George Lucas himself.

In light of that, this quick video from Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni breaking down its previous appearances and why it’s so difficult to use is very welcome:

The top candidates for the next Mandalore are Din and Bo-Katan, though it might be worth taking an outside bet on Grugu somehow meeting all the criteria eventually. Could Grogu really be a titular ‘Mandalorian’ instead of Din? With his growing skills in combat and survival, we wouldn’t put it any further than the cute little boy.

Before that, there’s debate as to whether Bo-Katan now has a legitimate claim to the Darksaber after using it to save Din’s life from a creepy cyborg, so we’re hoping their uneasy partnership would soon turn into an outright rivalry. But even though Din may have met all the criteria to become the new Mandalore, it doesn’t seem like he really wants the job.
