Guest Editorial: Why No Standalone Film News at D23?

Occasionally we like to feature visitor articles on the blog site from our readers. Today, permit us to present Josh Atkins as he takes a fast appearance at why we didn’t get any info at all on the Han Solo motion picture or other standalone movies at D23. We thought this would be an excellent opportunity for everyone to share their total sensations or apprehensions about the continuous production and the future of the Star Wars franchise. Read on for Josh’s thoughts and feel totally free to share your own in the remarks section.When Kathleen

Kennedy informed fans at this year’s Star Wars Celebration that news on the upcoming standalone movies will come when they’re all set (“no need to report that to him till we have something to report” right?), the majority of forecasted that they were saving the statement for D23, Disney’s huge summer expo for all their properties.It made good sense.

The Last Jedi trailer dominated Celebration in addition to big news about Star Wars: Rebels. If the other stand-alone films required a bit more time, then D23 would be the ideal time and location to announce them, particularly with the Han Solo film only 10 months from release at that point.We know one more standalone film is following Episode IX, and after that remains to be seen. It’s been rumored there are at least three more stand-alone films inthe pipeline, however fans may end up being distressed for the franchise’s future if Lucasfilm keep dragging their heels as these confirmed movies get closer to their release dates. It is in our nature to take a look at what’s ahead instead of the now.So why existed no statement? Sure, we got a fantastic behind the scenes reel for The Last Jedi; however what about the reported Obi-Wan movie? Exactly what about a prospective bounty hunter ensemble motion picture? Nothing!The apparent factor is that they ‘re just not ready to make that announcement. Whatever Josh Trank’s task was supposed to be, that film appears to have actually gone through a load

of different versions since his sacking, if reports are to be believed.It would make sense that Kathleen Kennedy would want to hold back on any statements up until they were definitely sure of the sort of motion picture they ‘d wish to make. It’s something which I make sure they’re especially cautious after all the last minute modifications they made on Rogue One and now the Han Solo film. I imagine they want a tight facility before they expose all. Unless she missed their mark(we doubt it )Kennedy did state they would have a decision on what the next stand alone film would be, but perhaps they are waiting to iron out the story they desire to tell before revealing it?There’s also that there are still 3 more films to come before we get these stories. We still have no idea all that much about The Last Jedi, even less about Episode IX, and we understand more about exactly what’s going on behind the scenes with Han Solo than we do with the real film itself, although Ron Howard has done a terrific job of relaxing

the storm through enjoyable with social media.Why would Lucasfilm wish to buzz us up for a bunch of films that aren’t going to see the light of day for at least another 2 and a half years, when they already have 3 motion pictures coming out before then? Undoubtedly they ‘d wish to keep us hyped for The Last Jedi so it can do along with possible at package office.A spin-off of today’s spoiler culture is that while fans are predictably excited for the next film in the legend, we can’t assist but be eager to know more about what’s around the corner. Yes, the return of Luke Skywalker and the First Order backlash is amazing, however what occurs next?We’re constantly so starving for news on the next huge thing down the line that I can comprehend why Disney would

like us to take a step back and savor today instead. On the other hand, they likewise know the uncertainty about the future beyond Episode IX may start to make some fans nervous.Ultimately I expect Kathleen Kennedy to honor her promise that a statement will come soon.As a smart old Jedi Master as soon as stated:”Patience you

need to have, my young padawan.”Thanks, Josh! Now let’s hear from you men … Are you nervous that they don’t appear to have a concrete strategy moving on? Or are you relieved at that presumption, comprehending that they have a great chance to focus on exactly what the fans really want from the franchise in the future, playing it by ear so to speak? Let us understand what you think of the future of Star Wars after Episode IX in the remarks below.Click HERE to take a look at and discuss this topic in our online forum The Cantina
