Sounds promising, I didn't see too much of Rebels but I liked what I saw. Hopefully it can give a somewhat coherent answer to how the new order came to be in the first place

I have faith in Filoni.. he pulled what seemed doomed concepts (another clone wars series.. a series 5 years before Yavin about aparently space Aladdin in a "cool" aparently silly aesthetics..) into very sucesfull and more StarWars than StarWars (at least the prequels and sequels) series..

He might even turn a so far uninteresting and horribly bad writen period/history into a good one..

any dates?

How have we gone this long without anyone giving their thoughts on Solo?

I saw it this afternoon. I wasn't really expecting much... but I kinda liked it. It was better paced than Rogue One with a better cast of supporting characters. It felt like it was a bit too self-referential at times (though I liked how minor chracters like Bossk and Aurra Sing received name-drops) though I rarely felt like it went too far.

I saw Solo last Friday and I was very impressed, Han Solo was played perfectly and I loved how he met Chewy. The plot was fast paced and the action scenes were amazing. Better than The Last Jedi and probably better than Rogue One too. Shame that it's flopped at the box office.

I think releasing it in May was a bad idea when they've always gone with December previously. It was too soon and had too much competition. Also, people are more likely to go to the cinema on long dark December nights than light May and June evenings. That's one of the reasons I think it may not have done so well, oh and the extortionate budget hasn't helped profit margins.

Yeah, it still feels like TLJ came out very recently. Also, releasing it so close to Infinity War seems a bit daft (I reckon that's why they moved IW forward by a week, though).

I hope there's still another spin-off after the next main Star Wars. I really enjoyed Rogue One and Solo.

They've got quite a handful announced, though I don't know which one is supposed to be next. There's an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie and a Boba Fett movie in the works apparently.

Hopefully the Boba Fett one is post ROTJ, which I'd imagine it would be (his origin is basically already done in The Clone Wars).

No idea what the heck they'll do for Obi-Wan though. I just hope they bring back Ewan McGregor.

I liked Solo... i liked it quite a lot...

not as much as Rogue One but it was a good star wars movie.. much better than TFA and TLJ ... it was what i hoped it to be.. quite a lot of consistency and lots and lots of expanded universe calls

whats sad is its unfair failure wich Penny Arcade perfectly sumarized:




Also to blame is most likelly the great deception and insulty that for many TLJ was ..

Thanks Javier.

I think Disney is as much to blame as anyone.  Bad ad campaign, and truly horrible release timing.

I think the other problem is that most of the fans are suspicious/don't want more of these origin story films.  Harrison Ford was Han Solo, so making such a movie was always going to clash with a social subconscious I think.

ironically i think keeping May was a last ditch effort to give the impression that "everything is under control"..

TFA was postponed to December after repeated begs from JJ Abrams.. but its intended original release was may 2015... rogue one was also intended for my 2016 but after the reshooting and changing finale issues was moved to december.. the last Jedi was from start scheduled to december 2017 due to TFA having been released in dec 2015 and JJ/KK convincing Disney to keep 2 years between them..

Solo was scheduled however for May 2018 .. and when the big Lord/Miller frakup happent everyone expected the date moved to december 2018..it was even logical as TLJ was just 6 months before and there would be 19 months until episode IX

However Ron Howard took charge and they insisted they were keeping the schedule.. i believe it was to give the impression that the director change and reshootings werent that bad and they could still finish production in the planed date

Report: The Star Wars Story Films Are Being Put On Hold

« Reply #178 on: 06-22-2018 09:28 »

Honestly, I would've saved them until after the main trilogy finished in the first place.

Still... I thought Rogue One and Solo were both better than TFA and TLJ so hopefully they're not put on hold indefinitely.

Well, I know that won't happen, but still.

I don't know why Disney are shitting the bed, surely they saw this coming?

Solo had a budget of $275 million dollars, thanks to the reshoots (making it the 6th most expensive film to make of all time), it was released in the middle of a bunch of other big movies (Infinity War, Deadpool 2, Incredibles 2, etc.) & it was also released just 5 months after the last Star Wars film which received almost universal hate from fans. Even people who like The Last Jedi are probably a little burnt out from so much SW.

Still... I thought Rogue One and Solo were both better than TFA and TLJ so hopefully they're not put on hold indefinitely.

It's a shame because I agree with this entirely, both spin-offs have been miles better than the two sequel trilogy films we've had so far. hmpf

great... they brought another classic character only so they can kill him.

Because they ran out of classic characters to kill ... Fisher is sadly dead so they cant kill her ... and they wont kill Chewie because he is so cute .. so lets bring Lando so we can kill him and still shove up your butt the "let the pass die, there is only us now" motto

I had no idea that Billy Dee Williams was even still alive. And I can't recall just when it was, that I first heard that Lucas had planned a nine-movie story for Star Wars. We all laughed because the chance of that happening seemed literally beyond the realm of possibility. Sometimes life is stranger than fiction.

I think the rumour that it would ultimately be in nine parts was going around before The Empire Strikes Back was released. As was the idea that Vader needed his mask because he fell in a volcano while fighting Obi Wan.

It's Star Wars. Nobody is ever truly dead. Boba survived in the old canon so they could always do it again.

And it would still be more believable than surviving being sliced in half.

Probably not...

In the EU he survives the Sarlack... in the new disney canon its mentioned in some book that some folks found a mandalorian armour with acid damage outside of the sarlack..  strongly sugesting Fett survived it too in this new disneyverse

Jon Favreau's live action Star Wars TV show is titled The Mandalorian:

Quote
After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic....

Source

*edit*

More info & first-look:

Quote from: starwars.com
The series will be written and executive produced by Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau, as previously announced, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) directing the first episode. Additional episodic directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). It will be executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer.

Well, that's kind of random, especially since the characters in Rogue One weren't anything special.

It might work. Worst case scenario, it makes a forgettable more forgettable. Best case, it makes a forgettable character more fleshed out.

It can be like a kind of Rebels done seriously and right..

It cant be much earlier than Rogue One since its Diego Luna himself reprising the role.. i would especulate it can cover from about 5 years before Scarif/Yavin (like Rebels did).. and as we saw in Rebels that period spans from where small individual rebel cells that just wanted to opose the Imperial tyrani began to became coordinated by Fulcrum agents who answered to Bail Organa and Mon Mothma..  up to cells merging into bigger cells.. to finally merging into the rebellion with some splinters along the way (like Saw Guerrera).
Only seeing all this from the perspective of a fulcrum agent..


BTW.. 6 episodes of Resistance..and its a fraking total dissaster..

its lame and stupid to infinite levels.. its not that its done for kids... its done for kids by someone who thinks kids are imbeciles....

Last night I watched Solo after getting home from work. I enjoyed it. And though I can't really put my finger on why, it didn't really feel like a Star Wars film to me for some reason.

It's no Rogue One, but it's a good watch.
