I know Rosario Dawson was tweeting about wanting the role earlier this year.

Hi dad was a prof at A&M. I knew Tommy, he was 2 years older than me but was friends with my sister.

My mom is good friends with his mother. She had said that the paparazzi were hounding him at the hospital when their baby was born, and i remember thinking "for Tommy? I know he's in Life in Pieces, but really?"

I had no idea that he was married to Amanda Seyfried, who was obviously the target of their pictures.

So, thoughts on this supposed Jabba the Hutt movie in the works?

Here's the part where I think Lucasfilm is really stretching with the character solo movies to a dangerous extent. Obi-Wan is different because he's a great character, and everyone loves Ewan McGregor. If nothing else, I want him to have a chance to be in a good Star Wars movie. If I were them I would have made this movie before Han Solo.

But a Jabba movie? Ugh. I'm not one of these people who wants every non-saga movie to be completely different and not at all related to the Star Wars we know. I like the idea of movies of films that are tangentially connected (like Rogue One), but this is the WRONG tangent.

Now, if you wanted to do a real "scum and villainy" story about some new characters with him as someone they cross paths with...maybe

Please no Jabba movie, and please no Yoda movie. I don't even want a Boba Fett movie. All sound like terrible ideas.

Obi-Wan is the last fill-in-their-background spinoff I want. I would MAYBE take a young Princess Leia movie starring Millie Bobby Brown, but it would have to something really cool and unique.

Otherwise, NO MORE SAGA CHARACTERS for the spinoffs. Lucasfilm is going to kill any goodwill audiences have for the spinoffs if they continue to make each one a needless background filler movie focused on an ancillary saga character.

We've said it a thousand times before, but yeah, after Obi-Wan, the spinoffs absolutely need to start veering toward unique genre stories set in various corners and time periods of the galaxy. The potential is virtually limitless. Why on earth would Lucasfilm stuff a freaking Jabba the Hutt movie down our throats instead?

Wrap up the current trilogy in 2019, give us Obi-Wan in 2020, and then please, for the love of God, pivot toward more unique stories. Take a break from the saga films/characters and finally realize the true potential of that galaxy far, far away...

I agree. If they want to continue with the anthology films, build the universe with something new and different. We have plenty of stuff on the current crop of characters. Get creative for once

I think I could get behind a boba movie. Just did a boba fett rifle for a customer... came out pretty sick.

Unfortunately I don't know if we snagged a picture of it while it was in the store....

Two weeks ago we had an AMT Hardballer come in on trade, but it was literally in the store for 30 minutes before a customer got it. Guy asked, "Do you have anything unusual?" *EyeGuy points at the Hardballer.* "I'll take it."

I just learned that a novel called Phasma is coming in September. Can anyone explain to me why I, or anyone else, should care about this complete throw-away character?

Because she isn't a throw away character and has a major role in The Last Jedi. And her backstory contains a lot of information on the founding and rise of the First Order.

It would be one thing if she was actually interesting in the first movie, and fans cared about her. No one can convince me that anyone left TFA awakens saying "man, give me some more of that awesome Phasma."

The character was developed with Johnson's input. And at one point they were looking to cast Benedict Cumberbatch. The role in TFA was introductory, but they've always had big plans for her.

Lucasfilm announces a project based on an established character: "When are they going to stop playing it safe and expand the universe?"

Lucasfilm announces a project developing a less established character: "Why should we care about this? They were a total waste of space in the movie"

Here's an idea, if you don't care about it, don't worry about the book existing.
