Maybe Disney is going to outsource the Obi-Wan production to Bollywood.
That first one actually looks...amazing. I’d watch the heck out of it!
Perhaps Tarsem Singh could direct a Star Wars film or series episode some day. I really like his film The Fall.
The adventures of Mace Hindu.
^ Okay, I laughed.
I tried not to, but I did as well.
Thanks Obama. Etc.
Yeah, you got me
Just came in here to say how amazing it is that the thread is titled definitely maybe
I can't believe this still hasn't been announced yet @Darth Chiznuk
The day is finally here!
Thoughts @Darth Chiznuk?
ETA: By “the day,” I mean Sunday.
Speaking of August, this is great news!
Wohoo! We need a speech from Chiznut. Speech! Speech!
I hate you all.
I do think theres a good case that net series might be the best place for the anthology style releases.
I mean yes Rogue One worked very well but I think it clearly benefited from its link to the OT, basically meaning that it didn't need to spend much time setting up its location or plot and could focus mostly on characters. Solo by comparison for me felt like a story that did have a lot of potential but didn't fully realise it due to a lack of runtime, I could imagine that film with a few elements added shifted into a net series quite easily.
I mean even with the OT I think part of what made ANH work was that because the plot/characters were so simple it didn't need excessive time setting them up, we knew most of what we needed to know about Luke and Han within 5 mins of meeting them which ment the film could focus heavily on building its setting. If your going beyond that into rather more complex character setups then I think the extra runtime might well favour giving the setting the build-up viewers expect. You don't need mega budgets to achieve that and if anything I think Solo suffered from too much of that kind of thing.
It does also I think naturally hold the series down to smaller scale action which for me is really what Starwars has always done best, the odd big action scene but not the kind of prolonged stuff Marvel has often done so well. I think again the meat of Rogue One was really in these kinds of scenes and I think a lot of what makes the setting feel like OT SW for me is the smaller scale design, the lived in industrial sci fi mixed with eastern exoticism. Plus of course I think Lucasfilm has incredibly strong talent in this area of smaller scale production design.
If this ever does get made and it's only a limited series while the other two are ongoing series...
I mean it does make sense if were looking at the idea for a film being transferred into a series where as the other two were always intended to be series.
It’s going to be a 2-minute animated short.
The droid in that 2nd video just minded me of the one from Buck Rodgers. Can't mind what his name was but I've always called him beedy beedy.
