Obi-Wan Kenobi Film Officially in the Works?

Published

on

Take this one with a grain of salt, and then take a little more salt, but according to a new article from the reputable site The Hollywood Reporter, Lucasfilm is working on an Obi-Wan Kenobi film.  If you remember, Lucasfilm was supposed to reveal the next standalone film sometime around June, but the month came and went with no official announcement.

The Oscar-nominated director behind Billy Elliot and The Hours is in early talks to direct a Star Wars standalone movie centering on Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Sources say talks are at the earliest of stages and that the project has no script. If a deal makes, Daldry would oversee the development and writing with Lucasfilm brass. It’s not known at this stage if Ewan McGregor will reprise his role.

Now it seems like we might be gearing up for an official announcement sometime in the near future.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge Comments on Transition of Solo Directors

Solo: A Star Wars Story has been anything, but a normal film production. After almost finishing principal photography directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired. Then came rumors of Alden Ehrenreich needing acting coaching, which led to fans speculating that the movie would be dead in the water.

Enter Ron Howard.

In a recent interview with IGN, Phoebe Waller-Bridge commented on the subject of Ron Howard taking over as director of her upcoming film Solo: A Star Wars Story, and how the change in directors affected the filming of her scenes.

“The handover there was done with such warmth and generosity from everybody, and Ron’s just a master at his craft; he’s going to make a beautiful film out of it,” she said of the transition between directors. “You just really trust him and it was just really exciting to work with him. I mean, it would’ve been exciting to just pass him in a corridor, let alone for him to be parachuted in to the film you’re working on.”

When asked how much of her role was reshot compared to Lord and Miller’s version of the film, Waller-Bridge said, “We’d done some really, really great stuff with Chris and Phil that everyone was really thrilled with, and I think a lot of that will still be in it.”

Does this news ease your mind about the upcoming film? Do you still think it will be a failure? Leave your thoughts below.

The Reason for the Color of Luke’s Lightsaber at the End of ‘The Last Jedi’

Published

on

We are entering SPOILER territory here folks. If you haven’t seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi, then look away!

We have all been wondering exactly why Luke chose to manifest himself on Crait with Anakin’s blue lightsaber in his final duel with Kylo Ren. Heck we have even speculated on our Podcast here before. Now though, Rian Johnson has spilled the beans to IGN, given us the answer as to the reason for Luke having Anakin’s lightsaber in his hands again.

“[Luke] is basically tailoring this projection to have maximum effect on Kylo,” Johnson explained. “He knows that Kylo’s Achilles heel is his rage, and so that’s why he kind of makes himself look younger, the way Kylo would’ve last seen him in their confrontation at the temple, and that’s why he decided to bring Kylo’s grandfather’s lightsaber down there — the lightsaber that Kylo screamed at Rey, ‘that’s mine, that belongs to me.’” As far as Johnson’s concerned, Luke believes that Anakin’s lightsaber will have a much more visceral impact on the erstwhile Ben Solo than Luke’s own green blade.

But why did Kylo fall for his uncle’s Force Illusion when he saw Anakin’s lightsaber split in half right in front of him? Because, Johnson pointed out, he didn’t actually see it.

“We as an audience saw that… The truth is, we see the lightsaber split in half — Kylo sees a blinding flash of light and is knocked unconscious, and then Rey takes the lightsaber away before he wakes up,” he said. “So if you really want to dig into it and get an explanation, you can say that he doesn’t 100 percent know what happened to the lightsaber.”
