    But again, what does clout from a brand really matter if his name alone carries clout? Regardless of whether there is any more Star Wars in his future or not, there are many more movies in his future that a very loyal fanbase is going to want to see.

    Star Wars isn't this be all, end all. It is one franchise that we all happen to love on this site.

    She greenlit and produced the most popular TV show of the past two years, which also became a massive pop culture phenomenon. She better still be standing.

    Even if they would be considering replacing her, they wouldn't be discussing it on Twitter. You have to present a unified company line to the public.

    Except this was a call to investors. Purposely misleading them is illegal. If Chapek says she’s in it for the long haul that informs the investors on where their money is going. Lying would open them up to litigation.

    Pretty much this if Kennedy was on the outs they wouldn’t say they loved her and her position is secure for years to come. What that means is her contract is almost certainly to be renewed this year. Kennedy probably isn’t going anywhere until she chooses to

    Exactly. He would have given a noncommital answer if there were problems. Instead, he gave a glowing endorsement. KK is sticking around, guys.

    This. There's nothing wrong with keeping KK on. Say what we will about how the ST turned out-however legit of points they are-everything else released during her time as head, and under the Disney banner was great. So IMO there's no reason to doubt that great things may yet be coming.

    Exactly. And I say that as someone who thinks the ST is absolute junk.

    I as well. Maybe not as junk, but I definitely have my issues with it.

    Isn't it just a rumor that Rogue Squadron takes place after the ST? Has that been confirmed?

    KK said it part of future era of story telling in new era i belive, so it's either OT or ST era.

    The official description on Star Wars dot com says the movie will "move the saga into the future era of the galaxy," which you could take as just moving the franchise itself forward if not for the fact that "future era of the galaxy" seems to be talking about the world specifically. This all kind of goes aginst the OT iconography we've seen, from the temp logo to Patty Jenkins' announcement video on Twitter.

    Maybe by "future era of the galaxy" they actually mean return to the future of the OT timeline... 8-}

    ^ Honestly, that's what I'd love to see. OT era is iconic for a reason.

    I still think the T-65 X-wing and the Rebel Alliance helmet in the promo video and the T-65 in the logo probably mean more than the kind of vague wording of that "move the saga into the future era of the galaxy" phrase. Maybe they just used those ships and helmet for now, but they could have used newer ships and helmets if they wanted to. I tend to think it's set in the OT era, or maybe it's a squadron that's still using old stuff even in the ST era (as some have wondered).
