Sabine Wren Cast For The Ahsoka Series

Pre-production for Ahsoka (tentative release date is 2023) is on its way and according to Deadline Lucasfilm cast Australian model/actress Natasha Liu Bordizzu. She is 27 and of Chinese/Italian descent, hence the interesting name. She has appeared in a few movies and shows, most notable is certainly the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel from a few years ago. According to rumors the Ahsoka series will resolve the Rebels cliffhanger ending and explore what happened to Thrawn and Ezra. Not much else is known at the moment. What do you think of the casting choice? In my opinion Natasha absolutely looks the part and seems like a great choice for Sabine. Now the big question is, will Sabine on the show have a lovely accent from Down Under? And next up: will Hasbro give us a live action Sabine Wren action figure?

Natasha Liu Bordizzo (fashion model and actress) will be Sabine Wren

According to trade magazine Puck News Kathleen Kennedy’s contract as Lucasfilm CEO was extended for another three years until 2024. There has been no official confirmation by Disney or Lucasfilm yet so there is a slim chance it may not be true, however rumors about Ms Kennedy’s contract renewal were making the rounds in the past weeks with various “sources” reporting that her contract extension is a done deal. Puck News lends a lot of credence to this now since Puck News is a reputable trade magazine run by actual journalists with real industry contacts, and is not a fansite run by fans with “sources”. Other trade magazines also report the story, so despite the lack of an official confirmation it seems the story is true.
Of course no one is privy to what is going on behind the scenes – but in light of yet another quasi canceled movie, Rogue Squadron (according to insiders Patty Jenkins didn’t like the script at all and decided to walk), the once more delayed Indiana Jones 5 and a completely messed up sequel trilogy that ended on a whimper, not forgetting the box office disappointment that was Solo, one has to wonder what convinced Bob Chapek to extend Kathleen Kennedy’s contract. It’s rather telling that the writer for the Puck News article, former Hollywood Reporter editor and entertainment lawyer Matthew Beloni chose this headline to break the news: It’s Time to Take ‘Star Wars’ Movies Away from Kathy Kennedy.

I have nothing to add to this. So, what is your take on things?

Hayden Christensen Will Be In The Ahsoka Disney+ Series

It should be common knowledge by now that Hayden Christensen will reprise his role as Darth Vader / Anakin Skywalker in the upcoming Kenobi series. However, this is not where things will end. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Hayden Christensen will also appear as Anakin Skywalker in the Ahsoka series, which is set 5 years after the events of Return of the Jedi. So of course Anakin has been dead for five years. But since death is not even an inconvenience in the Star Wars galaxy chances are Anakin will appear as a Force ghost. Or maybe we will be see Ahsoka clone wars flashbacks and/or visions. Details are not known at this point. The sequels had a disturbing lack of Anakin Skywalker Force ghost scenes, even more puzzling when you consider the fact Kylo Ren was Darth Vader’s biggest fanboy and also his grandson. One of the many oversights of the sequels. But it seems Lucasfilm is willing to rectify that mistake by offering Hayden Christensen various roles in their Disney+ series. Will you be happy to see much more of Hayden as Anakin (or Darth Vader) in the next few years? And who knows, maybe Lucasfilm is gearing up for a proper Darth Vader series that focuses more on the man behind the mask. Hayden is still quite young, only 40 (he was really young in Attack of the Clones), so he’s about the right age to play a late Empire era Vader or post ROTJ Force ghost, he could probably also still play his younger clone wars self with some make-up wizardry. Would you be up for that?

Let's Talk About Star Wars Visions: The Duel

Disney released all nine Star Wars Visions episodes early Wednesday morning. Since I am neither well versed in anime (I do watch a few shows and movies – few of the usual ones though – so, I am far from being an expert) and my knowledge of Japanese cinema is limited to the occasional Akira Kurosawa and Godzilla (sorry, Gojira) movie I will not provide proper reviews and a few details and things may go completely over my head. But what I will do is provide a few thoughts here and there and I also want to give you an opportunity to talk about the new series here on JTA! Since all nine episodes were released at once it would be too much and too confusing to talk about them all in one article, instead I will post one article each day, for the next nine days or so where we can talk about Visions! So let’s begin with “The Duel”, the first of the Visions episodes. And yes, there will be some spoilers, so if you don’t want to be spoiled you should stay away from the Visions articles!

Marcia Lucas Really Doesn't Like The Sequels

A book about the Star Wars producer Howard Kazanjian titled Howard Kazanjian: A Producer’s Life by late author J.W. Rinzler was released posthumously last week. For the book Rinzler also interviewed Marcia Lucas, who won an Oscar for her editing work on A New Hope. She was very instrumental back in the 1970s to make the original Star Wars the movie we all love. She also worked on the other two original trilogy movies, but her work was uncredited. In the new Rinzler book Marcia Lucas doesn’t mince words when it comes to the sequel trilogy. She outright says that neither Kennedy nor Abrams “get the magic of Star Wars”.
