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.

Will Jar Jar Binks Appear In The Kenobi Disney+ Series?

A new Star Wars rumor is circling the interwebs. Apparently, a bearded Jar Jar Binks may appear in the upcoming Kenobi Disney+ series! Nothing else is known, so take this with the usual grains of salt!
It has to be pointed out that Ahmed Best will be the host of a Star Wars quiz show on Disney+, so maybe Ahmed would be fine with portraying Jar Jar one more time? He did voice the character in the Clone Wars cartoon, which already had a somewhat more nuanced approach to the character. Would you look forward to seeing Jar Jar appear again in live action? Or would you rather never see him again? Also: how would Jar Jar fit in? Does Obi-Wan go to Naboo? It could be quite exciting to see Theed again. Or will Jar Jar travel to Tatooine? Leave your opinion in the comments! Movieweb has the full story!

I want to talk about some 100% unverified rumors. And to make it absolutely clear: these are not rumors originated by JTA (some people have problems with reading comprehension, so in short: this is from a source on Reddit, NOT JTA!), I merely talk about the rumors. Yes, it’s all unverified. Yes, we will never be able to verify any of that unless some of the people involved open up. However, I think the rumors have at least some credibility to them and may even explain the behavior of some of the actors in recent times. So what are the rumors about? Disney’s alleged meddling with The Rise of Skywalker and that JJ Abrams is extremely unhappy about the final cut. This article has spoilers! So if you haven’t seen the movie yet, stay away, everyone else, please click through! And you may only click through if you understand that these are Reddit rumors, NOT JTA rumors!

RUMOR: Obi-Wan Series In Development?

Star Wars News Net reports that an Obi-Wan Kenobi series will come to Disney+. According to SWNN, Obi-Wan would be a limited series with up to six episodes. However, there is no official confirmation yet, so treat this as a rumor for now.
But if there will be an Obi-Wan series, it would show that Disney and Lucasfilm do listen to fans, since many in the fandom asked for more live action Obi-Wan for quite some time now. It may well be that Disney feels that a movie might be a risk, after Solo flopped at the box office, not knowing perhaps if general audiences would like to see an Obi-Wan movie as well. By making Obi-Wan a Disney+ series the production will not only have a somewhat smaller budget, but Disney can also be certain that Star Wars fans will now have one more reason to subscribe to the service. Obi-Wan would be the third exclusive Disney+ Star Wars series on top of the all new season of The Clone Wars. What are your thoughts? Would you be happy about a limited Obi-Wan series? A series does give more time to develop characters and plot than a movie. Which is certainly one of the advantages of a tv show, whereas a movie would probably have been pretty much focused on action only. Leave your thoughts in the comments!

Rumor: Rian Johnson Steps Away From Star Wars?

A major Star Wars rumor is circulating on Twitter right now: Rian Johnson may have left Star Wars after all the negative reaction to The Last Jedi.

Website Superbromovies has a short article about Rian Johnson’s alleged departure from Star Wars. With no official announcement at all we can only speculate and wait for confirmation. Until then consider it a rumor. It may not be true after all. All we can say is that late last year, when Bob Iger talked about upcoming Star Wars movie projects, Iger only mentioned Benioff & Weiss and no word was said about Rian Johnson.

We’ll wait to see how this pans out before we’ll accept comments from our readers. Thanks for your patience on this.

UPDATE: Rian Johnson just posted on Twitter that the rumor is false and that he is still working on his Star Wars trilogy.

Some More Episode IX Rumors

A few hours ago some Episode IX rumors appeared on the Star Wars Leaks subreddit, the most credible source of Star Wars information, only second to Mike Zeroh. However, the rumors might actually have some truth to them as some evidence was apparently provided to a moderator on the Star Wars Leaks subreddit. So I thought, ok, why not look at these rumors and discuss them. You know the drill by now, if you want to know more, click through. If you want to know nothing, well, then do nothing and forever wonder what might be discussed in the article, tossing in your sleep at night.

Not an actual spoiler or rumor! Maybe. Also, these are actual toys by Funko.

George Lucas To Direct Obi-Wan Movie?!!?

British politician Boris Johnson (former mayor of London, former Brexit minister) made a quite odd, or let’s say “interesting”, remark at a political speech he held recently in Northern Ireland. He said this:

“Which was the biggest grossing movie last year? Star Wars and where does George Lucas propose to make a follow up about Obi-Wan Kenobi? Northern Ireland.”

Now, Boris Johnson is not exactly known for conveying facts. And it’s more likely than not he has no clue what he’s talking about here. But if it were true, then that would be quite sensational news. Of course, nothing official is known. Should Lucas actually direct another Star Wars movie we should learn about it one way or the other sooner than later. Until then, don’t hold your breath!

Rumor: Matt Smith To Portray Palpatine In Episode IX?

Now, keep your salt shakers ready! But according to a rumor which was first reported by the Weekly Planet Podcast on YouTube (and subsequently picked up by several websites) an inside source told them that Matt Smith will play none other than a young Sheev Palpatine in Episode IX. Now what could that be? Flashback? A Clone? Or maybe just yet another baseless rumor? At least the source is not Mike Zeroh 😉
What do you think? Would you like to see Palpatine in Episode IX? Should he teach Kylo Ren a thing or two about being the Evil Lord of the galaxy?
