    Solo and Rogue One were great. Best of the "new" SW movies.

    TFA was also good. I enjoyed it. And I do have high hopes for ROS because rarely does JJ Abrams disappoint.

    But if Rian Johnson still has the helm for the next chapter of SW movies, I'll probably take a pass.

    Re: Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker

    The issue with Star Wars is that the vision got murky and disjointed the more folks Disney brought in for each film...different writers and different directors for each film took it in a new direction each time meanwhile the films suffered a bit. Unfortunately due to the fans Star Wars can really burn a director out as they basically had to beg JJ to take this last film.

    Personally I liked Rians film but I don't have a deep connection to Star Wars which may explain why some feel so strongly about it.

    Is this still happening?

    A HBO executive confirmed that after the final season of Game of Thrones, David Benioff & D.B. Weiss will be taking a hiatus from HBO to make a trilogy of movies in a galaxy far, far away.

    I remember reading a while ago that they were gonna do a movie series that takes place around the same time period as the Knights of the Old Republic game series.

    Disney just revealed a bunch of new release dates, with the highlight being that three new, yet-to-be-titled Star Wars movies will be released every other December starting in 2022.

    Re: Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker

    I think they are wise to embrace the two-year spacing for each film. As a franchise, that rhythm seems to work best for Star Wars because of the buzz that accrues with word-of-mouth and now so much internet fan site analysis and what not. I think it's a franchise that works differently than the Marvel films, mostly because its roots are so devoutly chronological and immersed in a generational story.

    As their other big cash cow, Marvel is more adaptable to multiple platforms in a way, because it really works well with a larger-scale, web-like form of world building. I'm not a huge fan of superhero films in general, but I can't emphasize enough how impressive I think the MCU has become, especially in its third phase. It's really challenging to pull off what they did with Endgame. I don't like every film in the series, but it is really a landmark in what is increasingly starting to look like how movies (and media more generally) will be made moving forward.

    Re: Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker

    My issue with running a new Star Wars story concurrently with the Skywalker story that doesn't involve any of the themes or characters from the Skywalker story is, how?

    The rebellion, the intergalactic Empire...all this stuff would concern everyone in that universe/world/whatever we're calling it. There's no way there could be an unaffected planet, galaxy, etc.

    It would either have to run before or after, and it would at least have to acknowledge the events of the Skywalker Saga. Otherwise, it would be tantamount to writing a movie Missouri in 1863 that doesn't even acknowledge the Civil War.

    It’s going to take place likely thousands of years before the movies we have. The Old Republic era.

    Re: Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker

    Yeah, I read that. But I've also seen that there are talks to do another story that runs concurrently to the Skywalker saga. Maybe it never grows legs. I just don't understand how they could do it unless they just wrote them under the assumption that the SS never happened, but then it wouldn't even be Star Wars.
