Huh, some of these productions could be fun and interesting, but they should have announced that they're handing over their entire music vault to Mike Matessino for him to have his way with to really

What's the significance of Disney announcing a bunch of Lucasfilm stuff today? Was this expected to happen or did it all come out of the blue? 

 

I thought the game awards would contain the big media announcements today!

....and they still can't cough up the cash for expanded soundtracks. :crymore:

That's cuz they have to wear masks, on orders from Herr Gubner.

Last "official word" was from Rian, that he's still developing it.  AFAIK that was some time ago.

 

I don't read absence of confirmation in that call of anything.  They only gave information for one feature film, and the rest was Disney+ stuff.  No word at all about what other feature films are forthcoming.

 

Not to say that I'd be surprised if Johnson wasn't doing it anymore.  Given the high rate of creative turnover in Lucasfilm generally over the last few years, as well as the fandom reaction to The Last Jedi (although I'm sure that Lucasfilm realizes that when you cater to the fans too much, you get...The Rise of Skywalker......)

Fair enough.

 

You do notice what else is missing, don’t you?

 

A certain someone’s sequel-sequel trilogy...?

I didn't mind TLJ so much until I saw Knives Out and it became clearer to me what this smart arse is all about -- he makes movies with a certain ideological bias to appease the Twitterati. And suddenly his worldview became much clearer when I was thinking back to TLJ.

 

What a write-off that sequel trilogy became. I'll just watch the prequels.

Tin Man doesn't like films that don't worship rich people.

Which is weird considering he is poor, white trash.

😁

There were several projects that have been announced that were not discussed at this panel that are still happening. For example, Taika Waititi's recently-announced film.

 

Which was meant to be the next Star Wars feature film, wasn't it?

 

But that's now Patty Jenkins' Rogue Squadron film instead.

Disney announced dates today for all of their 2021 content.  Here's the Star Wars content

 

THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT – December 2021 (Lucasfilm / Disney+)

Boba Fett’s journey will continue in “The Book of Boba Fett,” which will be set within the timeline of “The Mandalorian” and star Temuera Morrison as the titular bounty hunter, along with Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand. Robert Rodriguez — who directed Chapter 14 of “The Mandalorian” in a thrilling installment that reintroduced Boba Fett to the Star Wars galaxy — joins Favreau and Dave Filoni as executive producer.

 

STAR WARS: THE BAD BATCH – 2021 (Lucasfilm /Disney+)

“Star Wars: The Bad Batch” follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in “The Clone Wars”) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch — a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army — each possess a singular exceptional skill that makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew. In the post-Clone War era, they will take on daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find new purpose.

 

That's it!

I have faith that Favreau and Filoni overseeing things will lead to more good than bad Star Wars content on Disney+, though the sheer amount of announced stuff does give me pause.

 

Luckily, 2021 is empty of any live action Star Wars until December and the real onslaught begins in the years following, so there's not gonna be a chance of real overload for a while. 

 

I'm not interested in any of the animated shows currently, though might be open to starting with The Clone Wars if I run out of other things to watch next year.

 

 

I hope the theatrical movies they release going forward are better than the 5 Disney has made so far.

 

It's a shame with all the endless possibilities this universe has, they gave us 3 more Skywalker movies and 2 prequels for OT characters/ideas.  Here's hoping they really branch out and give us some completely new ideas on the big screen in the future
