Really like the look/sound of this and the interview with Leslye Headland is very encouraging. My one reservation is that I hope it doesn't go too down the martial arts route, but I'm happy to go with it. Love the poster.

Looking forward to it - haven't watched the trailer as I avoid trailers like the plague these days ! I hope it's got a bit of grit and darkness to it and it's placed in a more "lived in" universe. I found Ahsoka a bit "polished" :unsure:
Fingers crossed 🤞

Woke-a-mania bingo! I got a full house in 4 seconds.

I dread this project.

"For over a thousand generations ..... " Nevermind.

"At last we will reveal ourselves to the jedi"....Nevermind.

Leslye Headland is said some radically feminist things and was also Harvey Weinsteins Personal Assistant. Perfect qualifications to slip into George Lucas shoes.

I'd LOVE to be proved wrong, but I think this is going to be as bad as Disneys Willow nonsense. A load of woke virtue signalling with flat characters, a story that rips up the lore and a loest common denominator Pepsi interpretation of mythical philosophy and allegory story telling.

Surely NOTHING can be as bad as Willow :ROFLMAO: She won me over a bit with her interview on the link above. She was REALLY into the 90's EU stuff etc- sounds like a proper fan. I like the idea of the thriller/mystery story, Jedi being knocked off etc. Decent cast, too. Has great potential and the trailer looks good. Of course, it could all go pear-shaped. Not too long until we find out...

🤣🤣🤣🤣
It's all so boringly predictable isn't it.
Apparently, our Leslye drinks from the furry cup. You'd never know, as she only mentions it every ****ing five seconds.

I'll still give it a go for the laughs, but I think we all know where this is going.

What with this and Lucas siding with the Disney 'White Slavers' (his words) in Igers proxy battle with Nelson Peltz, I think its safe to say SW has been finally flushed down the shitter.

The first new Acolyte figures were released today. I haven't bothered.
It's a shame that companies are obligated to commit resource to the next Disney flop and not what the fans want.

I think they may stay the course until all the original fans have been pushed out and replaced by kids who think patricide makes sense for love story

There is an exclusive clip (the bar fight in full) for it after the Phantom Menace at the cinema right now as well - looks really good

Well I'd avoided the trailers (like I normally do with any trailers) but since the preview clip was on after tonights showing of EP1 I got to see it and after all the **** bashing it's had I was pleasantly surprised how it looked to be fair. Not sure why it got so much bad press after the trailer but I can't comment on that having not seen it. Anyway.... after tonight's clip I'm looking forward to it 👍

I wonder if a bit of the crap being thrown at it (before anyone had seen anything) was more to do with Disney and people views on KK. The production for the show hasn't had the best press in terms of the rumours flying around about it, (got to love the internet) so people just spin out what they want from there.

I'm really looking forward to this one - we've never had anything TV/Film based from this period, it look like it's setting a dark(ish) tone and the talent on display is great.
