In the light of the news that planned trilogies are binned off and Rogue Squadron delayed indefinitely, while the person many consider as the chief architect of this doom had their contract extended, Star Wars damage control is needed.
So they have wheeled out Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy to bang the drum. The sequel trilogy may have been forever consigned to the intergalactic garbage compactor but she has told Empire magazine that the trilogy may be gone, but the characters aren’t forgotten and could well return.
“Certainly, those are not characters we’re going to forget. They will live on, and those are conversations that are going on with the creative team as well.”
Daisy Ridley and Kelly Marie Tran have clearly left the world of Star Wars behind them, while John Boyega has been burning bridges with glee, so it will be interesting to see if it ever happens.
The article does not mention the Rogue Squadron issues and lack of movie installments since Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker. These issues are added to issues with The Force Awakens (writers replaced), Rogue One (director final edit removed), Solo, directors replaced, The Rise of Skywalker (director quit), Obi-Wan Kenobi (screenwriter fired), Andor (showrunner fired), Untitled Boba Fett Film (director fired), Untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi Film (director fired), Untitled movie series from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (creatives walked).
What a role of honor!
The Book Of Boba Fett is imminent on Disney+.
