"When people ask me, ‘Don’t you think people are going to get sick of Star Wars movies?’ to me that question indicates that they’re thinking of Star Wars movies as a museum exhibit that is wheeled out once a year so you can say, ‘Oh, I loved that thing. Oh, I remember that thing!’ And yes, if Star Wars is that, people are going to get sick of it really quickly.

But if Star Wars are great new movies that are exciting and fresh, and that challenge you and surprise you and make you feel things and engage you the way that those original movies did—but always taking you to new places, both in the galaxy and emotionally—that’s never going to get old. That’s what it’s all about."

Amen. I love this man.

I finished Rebels season 1 this weekend. I know @Jango said it’s a dumpster fire, but it’s part of the Star Wars timeline… so I feel the need to consume it. Plus, I need to see the death of Darth Maul (I didn’t watch much of the second half of the Kenobi video above—spoilers). Season 1… not bad though. I like the music throughout and the cameos so far have been pretty well done.

Oh, I consumed it. But it was still awful. Just…like…awful.

May the Fourth be with you. In WI, even our DoT gets in on the festivities today.

I don’t know why I like to torture myself, but I went and watched “The Beginning” the other day. That is the EP1 behind the scenes doc. God damn, it is infuriating to watch. Rick McCallum might be the greatest villain in the Star Wars universe.

Uh oh! Some Star Wars fatigue setting in?

No. They foolishly released the movie in the most competitive timeframe this year with fairly poor marketing. It was never going to do great against Infinity War, Deadpool 2 and the Overboard remake.

Sounds like the plans to halt production on stand alone films may have been premature. From what I’ve been seeing the GoT folks are still moving forward with thiers as is Rian Johnson. Boba Fett looking to resume production after EP9. Sounds like there was a film cancelled and that it was a Mos Eisley spin off.

I think they really screwed the pooch by releasing Solo when they did. Going up against it’s own in house competition and Disney wanted it pushed to December but LucasFilm said no. Shame too because I loved Solo.
