I think it's more that they've decided to make Boba Fett a good guy and don't want him to be flying around in a ship with that name when they'll be releasing loads of merch the 'heroes' ship when his series comes out.

 

Apparently Slave 1 is now officially knows as The Firespray (which I think was it's model name before in the way the Falcon is a Corellian Light Freighter).

 

Doesn't bother me but I just find the idea of in-universe Boba Fett being terrified of being cancelled funny.

Didn't know where to put this but you've got to love what stuff can be found in your parents board game cupboard from when my elder brothers were kids.

Edit: of course it would be copyright from when the film came out :facepalm: I'm assuming the puzzles are from a similar time :)

"George Lucas' ex-wife" i.e The fucking editor of the original movies. The one who saved the original film from being shit.

 

Also: yes.

 

I'm sure she has deeper criticisms of the sequels that were not quoted there, but the quotes on that page focus on her anger that they killed off the main characters from the original trilogy, and that doing so went against "the magic of Star Wars". She says there was "no rhyme or reason" to killing off Han - but I think emphasising the threat and inner conflict of the new films' main antagonist, asking whether he could ever be redeemed after doing something like that, was a pretty decent reason for doing it. (Whether his characterisation subsequently lived up to that is a different question.)

 

"And they think it’s important to appeal to a woman’s audience, so now their main character is this female, who’s supposed to have Jedi powers, but we don’t know how she got Jedi powers, or who she is." -- I know others disagree, but after The Last Jedi (which is when it sounds like she made those comments), I was fine with the idea of the series never giving us a definitive answer about her parentage, and whether that was connected to the source of her powers.

I'm pretty sure the main reason that they killed off Han Solo was because that's what Harrison Ford wanted. He wanted Han to die at the end of Empire. He wanted Han to die at the end of Jedi. Lucas kept saying no. He jumped at the chance to kill off Han.

 

To be honest I liked the way they killed Han off. It was well acted by Ford and Adam Driver. It also had the requisite pointless, hugely dangerous bridge over a gaping chasm which has been a Star Wars trope since the original film.

Marcia Lucas seems to hate both the sequels and prequels so would fit in well on this forum!

 

Disney need to be using some of these planned TV series to set up a credible threat for Films set a few years after Rise of Skywalker.
 

I really hope they do, but it’s not even clear if they will even go back to numbered films.

They won't be going post the "Skywalker saga" everything points to them going about 400 years before that, I'm still crossing my fingers for a Bane or Revan trilogy.

 

They absolutely 100% definitely will do another trilogy sooner or later with Daisy, John and Oscar (and hopefully Kelly) returning as older versions of their characters, but not necessarily as the stars, in much the same way as the three OT leads returned for the new films. I also suspect it won't take them thirty years to get around to it this time.

 

But they'll also 100% definitely do other stuff as well. It'll be interesting to see what they do end up doing, not least because they were obviously taken aback that their original film-per-year conveyor belt plan didn't churn out a bunch of universally loved and acclaimed films powering an "it prints money" machine.

I wouldn’t object to a Old Republic Trilogy, but I definitely don’t want to be waiting around a decade or so for a post RIse of Skywalker trilogy. 

in some ways Covid and cinemas been closed has worked out ok for Disney allowing them to regroup and hopefully come back with some coherent film plan

No Sequel sequels until they’ve filled up the 30 years of non story between RotJ and TFA.

 

Thrawn’s back, young Luke’s back, Force cloning’s beginnings are in Mando and Bad Batch, Mount Tantiss is back, Ahsoka’s back and looking for Ezra and Thrawn.

 

Dudes, we’re getting an Heir to the Empire-esque Thrawn saga.

I doubt Boyega will be back. I think he said something a while ago along the lines of not wanting anything to do with Star Wars going forwards.

 

If they can lure Harrison Ford back, they can get John Boyega.

I'm not so sure, they gave him fuck all to do and he seems quite bitter.

 

He had about as much to do as Ford did in Return of the Jedi. He might be annoyed now - and fair enough, his character was very much sidelined in RoS - but give it ten years and a juicy returning role, and I reckon he'd be back.

From about 8 minutes in here.

My generation of actors are not the same as the generation of actors that came before us who painted the whole experience to always be perfect. The same way your job ain’t perfect shit, mine ain’t. Just having that relationship and being able to express that to the fans has been something to me that has been a major deal in being a part of this. [If I came back] I’d be thinking about them, I’d be thinking about the fans, I’d be thinking about what they’d want to see. This time, I’m sorry I’d just be a bit more adamant about story. And I think everyone would, even Oscar, even Daisy. Everyone would kind of be like, if we’re coming back hopefully the story is worth coming back or maybe there are some new characters that we help and we visit.
