The Real Deal : strong> Wondering what to expect from The Mandalorian ? Showrunner and successions developer Jon Favreau had a couple of oblique razzs to offer in a recent sketch from The Hollywood Reporter . “I’m trying to evoke the aesthetics of not only the original trilogy but the first cinema. Not simply the first film but the first routine of the first cinema, ” he said. “What was it like on Tatooine? What was going on in that cantina? That has fascinated me since I were children, and I adore the relevant recommendations of the darker, freakier place of Star Wars , the Mad Max aspect of Star Wars . ” Elsewhere, he asked the appeal of Disney +. “There &# x27; s an opportunity to tell a story that &# x27; s bigger than television, but you don &# x27; t have the same expectations that a big holiday release has, which to me isn &# x27; t these kinds of Star Wars that comes out of me, ” he showed. “The type of Star Wars that I &# x27; m aroused to tell is a smaller thing with new characters.” Could this … could this be the start of the expansion that the right has been looking for, for some time now …? Stay aria; the indicate will debut with Disney+ on November 12.
The Source : strong> The Ewan McGregor
Probability of Accuracy : strong> The Force is strongest with this one.
The Real Deal : strong> Only a couple of weeks after it was originally reported that Ewan McGregor is in talks to reprise the responsibilities of the Obi-Wan Kenobi for a series provided between the prequel trilogy and the original trilogy, McGregor appeared at D23 Expo to announce that he will be returning to Tatooine to play the Jedi Master one more time for a Disney+ sequence.

The Source : strong> Another official edict, this time from Lucasfilm
Probability of Accuracy : strong> It get no more accurate.

Given that the specific characteristics are caricatured, I decided to spawn the backgrounds simple, with paper-cutout silhouettes put on top of each other like something you might see in a envision work. The camera motion is quite flat and might remind you of old videogames. I wanted to take a different superhighway from 3D living and recent videogames.”

What does that looks a lot like? To me, the blue sky element of it is what was most striking about it.

The liberation of Rise of Skywalker might represent the end of not only the Skywalker Saga but a whole school of thought of just what Star Wars is, it seems …
