    I wonder what kind of role K2 will have in this. That's a pretty fx heavy character for a streaming web series. I'll be super impressed if Disney goes all in on bringing K2 back to life at a cinematic level. The recent news that ILM will be doing fx work on the Mandalorian series is pretty encouraging.

    And then you have to wonder how much else from RO we'll see.... General Draven? Merrick? Mon Mothma? Galen Erso? Saw Gerrera? The list obviously goes on and on. Enfys Nest? Vader?? I imagine they'll stay mostly self-contained with not a lot of cameos from movie stuff.

    I'm stoked though, I've been a little down in the dumps lately at the lack of Star Wars stuff seeing as we're not getting a movie this Christmas for the first time in 3 years. So this is pretty cool news to get right now.

    So what are you more excited about, this one or The Mandalorian?

    Love this idea! I know it probably doesn't seem all that interesting to the average viewer but if it feels anything like Rogue One in production style it could make for a great, dark & gritty series.

    Can't imagine we'll see much of Leia, but it is good to know that we will see her some and hopefully get a proper send off, without it being too overblown or cheesy.

    I think we all assume we'll see Luke as a Force ghost. I think that I hope they leave him in sort of a "mentor" role for Rey, an inspiration to the Rebellion, and maybe he sort of haunts Kylo. Don't think I want to see him somehow be the hero again, I think it's time to let the new generation shine. I keep having this vision of Luke levitating way up in the sky with white eyeballs shooting lightning out of his fingers and it scares the shit out of me. I don't want a video game. We already have those.

    Looking forward to seeing Lando, I think it's a mistake that they didn't bring him in earlier, let him and Han/Chewie have at least a moment in TFA, but better late than never, I guess.

    The new cast additions Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, and Keri Russell, all intriguing. I'm sure we'll learn more about their roles as time goes on.

    Also be interesting to see what JJ does with Rose. Does he like the character? Will he keep her in the forefront? Or is he gonna tuck her away like Rian Johnson did with Maz (and Snap) and like George Lucas was pressured into doing with Jar Jar hahaha.

    Do I have confidence in JJ's ability to close out not only this trilogy, but the entirety of the Skywalker saga fittingly? No. No I absolutely do not. But I'm hoping for the best. I hope he's putting that first, far ahead of the apparent behind-the-scenes tug-o-war that many believe to be going on.

    Patience, Jedi. We have 3 confirmed films coming from the master of subverting expectations that is said to be based on a yet unexplored corner of the galaxy, another confirmed series of films from Benioff and Weiss that is likely to be unlike anything we've seen in Star Wars before, a confirmed TV series from Jon Favreau, likely another 2 or 3 anthology films in serious development and, unless Tarkin has Alderaanian aspirations set on Earth, I don't think we're in any danger of running out of opportunities for them to expand the galaxy and I think that they have no choice but to do exactly that. I wouldn't expect much ground breaking cinema or and art-house type stuff, but they've just about milked the Skywalkers for all they're worth at this point (personally still hoping for a 4th trilogy, but that's me). Not only are they going to want to try new stuff, they're going to have to.

    Yeah part of me feels like they kept him out of TFA & TLJ so they could put him in IX after Solo came out and sort of ride a little Lando wave. Don't think it's had the exact effect they were hoping for but I think I see their strategy.

    Could be interesting (or boring) to find out exactly what Lando has been up to all these years. I doubt they'll go into it too heavy and leave a lot up to the imagination and/or the comic books.

    The fact that they put Maul in Solo definitely implies a tie-in to the Kenobi film. I hope they don't make Kenobi some sort of unofficial sequel to Solo, but I don't mind a little crossover there, as long as it's not like Solo himself or Chewie showing up and running in Obi Wan only to not remember each other 5-10 years later. I've probably repeated this ad nauseum at this point but but I think that a Mandalorian/Boba Fett/Bounty Hunter/Enfys Nest movie would make for a better Solo "sequel" but I guess that's just my opinion. If we even actually get anything like that at this point. Plus you could still put Qi'ra and Maul in it and it doesn't have to influence the Kenobi movie at all if they don't want it to.

    Thoughts on bringing George Lucas in on this? He may be the main authority on the character, but we can't pretend like he handled him all that well the last time he had a shot at him. I don't mind him coming in as a producer/adviser on the project but I don't want him directing anything, I don't think. Wonder how much of all this is true and how much of it is pure coincidence.

    In the Rebels episode Twin Suns we get to see Kenobi and Maul face off for what we have to assume is the last time, with (SPOILER ALERT) Kenobi besting Maul in a quick lightsaber duel that ends in Maul's assumed final actual death. At the very end of the episode we see a young Luke running across the moisture farm where he lives, showing that Obi Wan has indeed been keeping a close watchful eye over the lad. The problem here is that Luke appears, to me at least, to be fairly young here, maybe 11 or 12? But at the last canon update on the matter it is said that the episode of Rebels is supposed to take place only a year or so before the events of ANH. Seems like a slight continuity issue to me. Doesn't have to effect the timeline of Solo (13-10 years before ANH)/Kenobi/Rogue One (moments before ANH) at all but it just seems a little off. Of course I could just be misinterpreting some part of the whole deal, who knows. Not even a big deal just thought I'd bring it up haha.
