  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    Toby Haynes will replace Tony Gilroy as the main director according to Deadline. Gilroy had to step down due to Covid-19 related travel issues but will remain as executive producer and showrunner. Haynes will direct the first three episodes which will start filming next month in the UK.

    Well looks like Haynes was more or less attached to the show anyway, so not a huge shakeup. And it looks like he has a good directing résumé.

    Yeah. The only thing that happened is that Gilroy won’t be moving to the UK to direct any episodes due to Covid. Instead, Haynes (who was set to direct multiple episodes anyway) will be the lead director, while Gilroy remains the showrunner remotely.

    In a true advancement for Star Wars, the director is now the one surrounded by green screen while all the characters are on an actual set.

    I bet Marc Fernandez will say the show is being cancelled within the next 24 hours.

    10/90.

    10% percent chance that she's in it.

    Mainly I hope that she's not because I don't like the character that much. So I hope that there's 0% chance that Cara Dune is in it.

    Create someone new if they want a third (or fourth or fifth) character to go along with Cassian and K-2SO.

    I’d prefer they prioritize having good actors in this one. Not least as I think it’s going to be a much more complex show than Mando (which I absolutely adore for keeping it simple, but this one should be different), with really muddy situations that require more nuance in the acting department. This will have a distinct genre identity. I think the known shows will go something like:

    1. The Mandalorian: A straightforward Western
    2. Andor: A completely non-straightforward and maze-like political spy thriller
    3. Obi-wan: A spiritual journey

    So I don’t think we’ll be getting many wrestlers or MMA fighters in the Cassian show.

    I agree. MMA fighters are fine at fighting they usually aren’t the best at acting.

    Oh I hope we don't see any more mma fighters in pretty much ANYTHING unless they go take some acting lessons. Wrestlers I'm more lenient towards. Wrestling is just acting. Many of them have transition to film careers just fine. But yeah. I'd rather not have to deal with any more "performances" like those that come from Ronda, or... ahem... Gina.
