    Cam forget what you know about the old Star Wars legends. Let the past die. Kill it, if you have to.

    Here’s some conjecture, fresh off the hot plate:

    Anthology films on hold (Boba Fett, Obi-Wan, etc) while new trilogies from Rian Johnson and GoT showrunners Benioff and Weiss get more focus.

    I think this is a very good move.

    I enjoyed the Solo movie.

    Not as good as Rogue One, but better than Last Jedi.

    I feel like they could still go ahead with a well done Ewan McGregor movie... but I don't think anyone was really clamoring for a Solo or Fett movie.

    I am the opposite. See, the Fett movie was one of the three planned films announced shortly after the Disney acquisition, and I thought it would pair up nicely with a Solo film seeing as they’re rivals and all.

    But othe flip side, a Ewan McGregor film about Obi-Wan’s later years would be totally pointless because he literally doesn’t leave Tatooine until Luke Skywalker does. Almost the entirety of his watch over Luke is spelled out already in the comics and in Rebels. There’s almost nothing to make a film off; he does no Jedi stuff because he has to hide his identity. I think the only reason people want it to happen is because McGregor is the right age for the film to be made.

    Disney is really not handling this very well.

    I don't understand why they're doubling down on Rian Johnson after TLJ.

    Solo, by pretty much all standards, can be considered as a blockbuster. It's just not doing as well as expected. This 'disappointment' could very well just be poor time slot with lots of competitions.

    Pixar's Incredibles2 and all the Marvel movies are doing rather well. Maybe those successes are giving Disney unrealistically high expectations. Maybe those in charge of Disney SW universe are just not doing as good of a job...

    TFA didn't impress me.
    TLJ disappointed me.
    Rogue 1 was pretty cool.
    I'll see how I like Solo later...

    BTW, I never see SW movies early in theaters and I actually saw Rogue1 on Netflix. Maybe it's my fault that Disney is disappointed at the early box office #s...
