Re: Rian Johnson will create a new Star Wars Trilogy

I also saw this news yesterday! Very excited about this news. I won’t lie I was saddened to hear Rian wasn’t directing IX because of all the positivity coming from Lucasfilm during and after wrapping the production of TLJ. Now we don’t know how TLJ will actually be for a little over a month (that’s...

This time for TLJ the cinema was fully booked out. So Mags you aren't the only Star Wars fan not interested in see...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Not to be a downer, but I will probably not watch this in theater. I'm not very interested in this film with the square-faced guy playing what based on its trailers and TV-spots seems to be a generic "bad boy" in a generic and formulaic plot. The "190-years old" line from the trailer and TV-spot was...

Re: Untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi

Early in Disney's announcement they were having 3 stand alone movies and now they have 6 in development. Since Solo is just over a month away, there has been little talk of what the last of the originals stand alone. I wonder if this idea for a Obi Wan has been abandoned by Disney or if it is being...

One thing TLJ (and also TFA) proves is that masks puppetry isn't always better than CG: The Canto Bight scene features the worst masks and puppetry ever shown in a Star Wars movie... Heck, some of the designs are more in line with Men in Black than Star Wars.

And the last episode of the season was a rush job... There were a few episodes I liked, but overall the series is... uneven is a kind word for it.

My problem with that is that I see Artoo and Chewie having as much of an emotional connection, if not more, and just didn't buy into Luke brushing off those two, but then responding to a couple minutes of basic, obvious truths from Yoda. I'd have preferred if they dropped the Yoda scene, and earlie...
