Finally, at least a hint of what this trilogy was going to be about, which I admit does sound pretty cool. I hope someone else picks up the torch and continues down this road...

Quote:

Benioff and Weiss had ambitious plans to take the "Star Wars" universe in a new direction, one that would exist apart from the Skywalker family saga that comprised the franchise's centerpiece nine-film series. The "Star Wars" period the pair was interested in exploring was how the Jedi came to exist. However, Lucasfilm executives and the creators begin to see their visions for the films diverge during meetings last summer.
Quote:

Sources at the studio insist that Kennedy's job is secure despite the churn of filmmaking talent, but insiders at the talent agencies believe that top filmmakers may become wary of working on the series, particularly if the end result will be an embarrassing dismissal. "Star Wars" fans did receive some welcome news when it was revealed the Kevin Feige, the executive credited with guiding the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will work on a standalone "Star Wars" film. That led to speculation that Feige might be brought in to stabilize Lucasfilm, but insiders say that there are no plans to give him a larger role in that division.

Yep, Kennedy sure is getting a bad rep. Rightly so.
Feige is slowly being inserted into things and will take over. Game of Thrones man, Game of Thrones.

Only after a long and drawn out negotiation process. We were finally able to agree on terms, though. I just had to make sure they knew I was prepared to walk, Red Lobster gift certificate be damned. They can say what they will about my agent, but he earned that Langostino lobster-artichoke-and-seafood dip.

His last point is a big reason why Luke should have had a kid in these new movies. Rebooting is dumb, imo

Yet another reason why TPM is the "best" of the prequels.

Is Bezos Viceroy Gunray in this scenario? Who is the Sith in the shadows - George Soros?

Not sure, but Chancellor Valorum is definitely Trump.

If you asked any D voter, he'd be the Sith (literally Hitler)

That's too easy a comparison. Valorum was weak and ineffectual.

Valorum seemed way too meek and quiet to be Trump.

There's no one in SW universe like Trump: both a crude troll and an effective executive.

The closest I could think of would be Price Isolder of the Hapes Consortium (EU). Arrogant but capable.

Anyone else get the new Resistance Reborn book? I'm five chapters in and it's nice to get some info on the aftermath of VIII. They seem to be setting up how at least some familiar faces enter back into the picture, so they might already be involved at the beginning of IX

99% sure i'm reading too much of it but 'go to a remote planet to look for the GHOST of Jedi Master Yoda' ?

Old Ben told Luke to go find Yoda (not his ghost). Maybe Luke tells Rey to go to Degobah in search of ghost Yoda but instead finds the cave and has visions.
