J.J. Abrams says ‘Episode IX’ has a script and will begin filming in July

jj abrams episode ix script shooting july

J.J. Abrams got himself a fucking Herculean task with Episode IX. He needs to appease those Star Wars fans who hated Episode VIII. He needs to acknowledge the criticisms of his own Episode VII. One of the major stars of the movie passed away, sending the entire original script(s) into Hell. And not only that, but he has to wrap-up a saga in just one film following a movie that pretty much kicked over the entire fucking sandbox.

But! At least he has a script.

‘Star Wars: Obi-Wan’ movie going into production in 2019. In a derivative galaxy far, far too close

star wars obi wan movie production 2019

Ewan McGregor is good as Obi-Wan. Yes, yes, I know. However, I’m just not going to get psyched about another regurgitating of current mythos until Lucasfilm begins bringing some new ideas into the fold. That said, I’m sure I’ll mark out for this movie. I stand for nothing, it is clear.

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Circle Jerk: Your Hopes, Dreams, Fears, and Potential Cinematic Bowel Movements

the last jedi discussion thread

Quickly, quickly now. The vapors are hitting me as I walk down this long hallway. I don’t have much time, much time until they reach me. You know them, the ones with the grease-slicked pincers. You know them, the ones with the hollow eyes and bloated bellies. Oh, they won’t let me talk once they find me.

And today, friends, I have to talk to you about something incredibly important. The Last Jedi.

Why, why must I talk? For, as the date nears, as the dawns burn into evenings burn into fallen pages off a calendar, the reality has begun to set-in.

What, what reality do I speak of?

Rian Johnson says he has “no limitations” with new ‘Star Wars’ trilogy. Bro, I’m torqued

rian johnson no limitations new star wars trilogy

Rian Johnson says he has “no limitations” when it comes to creating his new Star Wars trilogy. I know the cynics are going to throw the “Bullshit” flag, but I’m going to be stoked. I’m glad to see Lucasfilm finally letting dope creators create in their sandbox.

‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ may end the “Skywalker Saga” and that’s a damn good thing

star wars episode ix end skywalker saga

All of the Star Wars movies have been this intertwining collection of derivation for the past, you know, forty years. So if Episode IX is truly going to end the Skywalker Saga (even for a little fucking while), I am stoked. It’s a rewarding, rich-as-fuck universe. Let’s start mining some new veins within.

Rian Johnson is developing a whole new ‘Star Wars’ trilogy and I’m pretty damn excited

rian johnson new star wars trilogy

Holy fuck, friends. Not only are the UberCzars at Lucasfilm happy with Rian Johnson, they’re apparently really happy. How do we know this? Well, they’ve given him the opportunity to develop his own new Star Wars trilogy. Like, outside the Skywalker Saga. His own thing. As someone who has bitched about Lucasfilm just regurgitating the Greatest Hits, I can’t help but be torqued by this news. Finally, something new coming down the pipe.

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ TV Spot: Luke Is Reunited With The Ship That Started The Adventure

The Last Jedi is going to make a zillion dollars. No one is going to be convinced either way at this point. So, what does Disney do? Naturally, they drop a TV spot that gives away a rather poignant moment. Which is why I’m not watching it, no way, fuck nah.
