Could it be click bait? Could it be true? If it is true what do you think about it

    There’s a reason Lucas, Filoni and Favreau will be leading all he SW movie/show projects from here on out, except that one bone they threw Kennedy.

    The 2 Bobs know what’s up and will save the SW brand to live on for years to come.

    Prediction: the one project Kennedy has creative input in will be horrible.
  • @ZAP bro you should watch this video

    Lucas got tired of all the Star Wars hate and sold the rights to it. Why does his opinion even matter now?

    Here we go, first of all star wars exist because of him so his opinion is final in anything related to star wars.
    Lucas got tired of people hating his creation so he stopped making more of it because people didn't deserve it.

    He sold his rights Disney and Kathleen Kennedy so they would keep starwars alive for the next generation and honor his creation, instead Kathleen Kennedy backstabbed him so hard that I bet you he regrets the day he met her.

    And bob Iger and Chapek are still working with George Lucas so his opinion does matter

    The Star Wars community will not be “redeemed”. The “fans” seem to think that a group of the same people should run Star Wars forever; that will last maybe ten years. Then the same group gets stuck with the same ideas. The makers seem to think that running the few great characters they have over and over will grow Star Wars, when it just gives them a money boost for a year or two. And people also seem to think that George Lucas is some God who instantly makes great content, which is very flawed. And the community was doomed from the get go. They fell too in love with the originals; George Lucas can’t write dialogue, and he ruined the prequels, so the community suddenly blows up into this toxic “I need my good ol Luke” hyper fan base. George Lucas sells to Disney, I blame that on him, and people are mad. Disney creates a bad trilogy, the community decides that somehow George, the notorious prequel maker, will save them. Or that somehow giving full control to Dave Faloni, who made two kids shows and the disconnected episodes of the Mandalorian, will “fix” Star Wars. They blame George, then KK, then Rian, then JJ, and then who knows?

    Star Wars is beyond being fixed. The OT suffers from overhype, which ruins everything after, but ultimately creates sequels and prequels. The prequels suffer from having only one man at the helm. The sequels suffer from too many people running the show. I personally think that the only way for anyone to save Star Wars is to sort through the ideas of the fans, and then put together what fits.

    Also, if you sell your baby to big bad ogre, why do you deserve any say in the baby’s future? That one’s on you.

    Doesn’t matter what you think, all that matters is what’s happening, which is that Lucas is being consulted by the people creating the next several movies, etc...

    He consulted and had influence on TCW and the Mandalorian and I enjoyed both of those.

    He’s not running the show, like the PT, decades ago, just consulting. Favreau and Filoni are simply picking his brain in regards to a universe that he created and imagined.

    They aren’t asking him to write dialogue. They aren’t using the technology he had available for the PT, the technology has greatly advanced. It is cool they are using some old stuff, such as puppets and animatronics, but even that is more advanced than it was.

  • Yeah clone wars and mandalorian are great, I will say that rouge one was pretty amazing too, I mean George himself did go to the sets of rouge one and did advise them after all.

    He’s just a part, and that’s great. He’s done with running the show himself, and I’m done with it too.

    The Mandalorian was good, but overhyped. CW and R1 were pretty fantastic though

    1st seasons are usually never the best season in a series.

    True. The problem I see for the future of the Mandalorian is these CW character and Rebels character reveals. I’m worried they’re going to overuse the good characters at the price of character development and plot. But I hope to be pleasantly surprised.

    Mandalorian was ok. It filled a void people had Longed for since the OT trilogy. It had a lot of nostalgia and people felt at home with it but it lacked direction for most of it. I hope the next season is even better but I fear they just might fill it with a lot of characters that have been in Star Wars before just to do so. I could see them using Boba Fett, Rey, Kylo Ren, Luke, Ahsoka, and on and on at some point.

    Can we all just agree everything bad is Kennedys fault? And Rian Johnson is no better.

    As long as more stars wars stuff comes out I'll be happy. I'll be ecstatic if it's good too
    Maybe End Game isn't for you

    Add J.J. Abrams to the list because he started the sequels with a lame rip-off story and badly written characters. Blame other things on Johnson but he couldn't ruin what was already boring from the beginning. B)
    The problem with people in charge like Kennedy, they don't care about really good authors. Abrams is good with effects and creating certain kinds of atmosphere - same goes for Johnson - but none of them are amazing authors. They should have worked with someone who is able to tell a brillant story. And that's something guys like Filoni do understand, and know who to get in the boat for their projects.
