You have your grains of salt at the ready? The usually well informed Latino Review website (unlike some other websites that simply make up stories) broke a brand new rumor today. And it’s a big one. According to the LRM website Anakin Skywalker will be a regular (!) character on the Kenobi show and of course he will be portrayed by none other than Hayden Christensen. LRM’s report also says Anakin was first supposed to make a cameo appearance, but then apparently Lucasfilm realized that people now like the prequels and the cameo role was turned into a regular character on the show. LRM claims the announcement was supposed to happen at Celebration, but since the event was canceled they say the announcement will happen at a later time, closer to the actual filming of the show.

So, what do you think? Do you want to see Anakin in Kenobi? Quite frankly, it never made any sense at all that we never saw his Force ghost in the sequels. Maybe Kenobi can make up for it. They only need to come up with a good reason for him to join in the fun. Perhaps we will be treated to Clone Wars flashbacks or maybe Hayden will portray Darth Vader, but Lucasfilm would probably not hire Christensen to portray a masked character that almost never reveals his face.

The Clone Wars may be over, but there is still more to tell and show us about the characters we met on the show. Disney+ ordered a new animated series from Lucasfilm: “Star Wars: The Bad Batch”!
We were first introduced to the Bad Batch in season seven of The Clone Wars. The new series will follow the team of elite Clones, as they find their way in a changing galaxy in the aftermath of the Clone Wars. In this early Imperial era the Bad Batch will take on mercenary missions as they seek for a new purpose. The new series is supposed to be released sometime in 2021 on Disney+. No specific release date has been given yet.

This is all the info we have at the moment. So we get a sequel, sort of, to The Clone Wars, just like Rebels, only set before Rebels. It may be of note that the Bad Batch team was one of the last things George Lucas actually co-developed, the team was his idea originally. I wonder, given the 1980s action movie tropes the Bad Batch stand for (which was the intention of George Lucas), if the new show will be anything like the A-Team.

So what do you think? Are you excited? Also, how much do you wager that Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex will eventually make an appearance?

New Star Wars Series In Development For Disney+

Variety has an exlusive report about an all new Star Wars series for Disney+! According to Variety’s sources the show will be a female-focused series in a new, yet unexplored timeline. Some people think that means “alternate timeline”, as in “alternate universe”, which is most certainly wrong, it merely means that an unexplored section of the timeline will be the setting for the show. Not much else is known. Showrunner is supposed to be Leslye Headland, who is co-creator and showrunner for the Netflix Show “Russian Doll”, which  has been generally well received.
One thing that is more or less certain is the fact that the characters will probably be all new original creations, thus, it won’t be a Dr Aphra or Ahsoka series, unless the “new timeline” premise turns out to be wrong.

What are your thoughts? Are you excited for more Star Wars to come? Another thing is if Leslye Headland will still be showrunner for the yet untitled show in a year from now, considering Lucasfilm’s track record. There has been no official confirmation yet, but Variety usually has reliable sources.

Several European governments have asked Disney to reduce the video quality for Disney+. The service will launch tomorrow in several major European countries, however, because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, several governments are afraid that above average usage of streaming services by people told to stay at home may congest the internet. Even though German internet providers reassured that there’s more than enough capacity, at least in Germany, Disney complied and the service will reduce the bitrate in Europe for the next few weeks. Furthermore, France asked Disney to postpone the launch of the streaming service. So now Disney+ will launch two weeks later in France.
Disney is not the only company to reduce the video bitrate in Europe, YouTube, Amazon Prime and Netflix also reduce bitrates. So you may get somewhat less than optimal video quality in Europe for the time being. Maybe some European countries need to upgrade their internet infrastructure. According to reports Switzerland is even considering to disable video streaming services in the country until further notice. At least that is not an option in the other European countries. If you watch videos on various streaming platforms in Europe you may see some artifacts here and there. It’s not you then, it’s the streaming service!

The Entertainment Crisis

Covid-19, better known as the coronavirus, has the world firmly in its grip. And the Walt Disney Corporation is no exception here. Like all other entertainment companies Disney is facing stiff challenges, challenges that may, to a certain degree, also affect Star Wars. Movie releases get postponed, most theaters in the US are closed anyway, worldwide most countries have shut down all movie theaters, tv and streaming series productions are on hold, theme parks are closed, Disney cruises are shut down at least for another two weeks. But chances are the crisis won’t be over in two weeks and that whatever counter measures are in effect now will still be in effect in April and maybe even May and June. First analysts theorize that now may be the perfect time for Apple to buy Disney, Disney’s stock price is falling and it will most likely continue to fall. So what exactly is going on right now and what does it mean for us, the consumers? Click through for more details!

Cassian Andor Disney+ Series Filming Delayed

In what almost feels like Groundhog Day, website Geeks WorldWide broke the exclusive story yesterday that filming for the Cassian Andor Disney+ series will be pushed back several months. Tony Gilroy was hired a while ago to fix script issues and to direct several episodes. But now new script issues have surfaced and the filming date has been pushed back as result of that. Filming was to begin in June, no new date is known. However, only recently Diego Luna confirmed that filming will begin in 2020. One has to wonder why only The Mandalorian doesn’t seem to suffer from any production issues at all, while both Kenobi and Cassian Andor are plagued by script issues and delays.
