Just saw a story on CNN about Kevin Feige producing some upcoming Star Wars movies.  I hadn't heard this before.

He seems to have done a great job with the Marvel movies.  Hopefully he can help drive some of that magic with the next up Star Wars movies as well.

The rumor mill has been swirling.  Mike Zeroh, who we should probably refer to as Supershadow 2.0 is talking trash about Brie Larson and how she might be in the mix for one of the upcoming projects.  Base on the source alone, I think we can regard that as nonsense.  But I do recall seeing word that Brie Larson was interested in pursuing a role in a future SW project.

Mike Zeroh is not a good source for anything.  He posts every wild rumor out there.

He doesn't have a good track record.

Also, everyone sharing the rumor that Disney is going to retcon the ST.  Not going to happen.
This is the way.

Today is Disney Investor Day (3:30pm Central).  Disney is promising "major announcements" for Star Wars (and the other things they own too).

Not sure what "major" announcement means - could just be updates on Bad Batch, Kenobi or Cassian on Disney+; or maybe a new series announcement (the rumored Leslye Headland female-led series)? 

Major announcement could also maybe be finally some updates on all those various movies that are in various stages of development (Rian Johnson, Taika Waititi, Kevin Feige, JD Dillard/Matt Owens).

Yeah.....that's what I would call a major announcement.

This announcement is stunning, to say the least!  Itís difficult to wrap my head around the sheer number of projects that are in the pipeline!  Just getting a sense of when all of these projects will be released is a lot to process.  And you get a sense that the franchise has a future that could live well beyond those of us who were kids when the OT was released.

This might not be the right thread, but its interesting to see Disney+'s smashing success and the fact that The Mandalorian and its unique content is a meaningful part of this success.  Current data has Disney+ at 87 million subscribers.  Assuming people are paying $70 a year for this (not counting any ESPN+ or Hulu bundles) that totals $6.1 billion a year in revenue!!   When they launched the service this was their five year goal.  They just hit that at the end of their first year. :o :o  They say they should have about 250 million subscribers by 2025.

Granted creating a show like The Mandalorian isn't super cheap.  Its reported that an eight episode season costs $120 million to make.  But I think they've done the math and have realized that a good show like this is a cash machine with new subscriptions and all the licensed products that spin out of it.

Its also interesting to see the flop that HBO Go and HBO Max have been.  They've been getting roasted for their weak content and subscriber numbers.  Warner Bros is getting a lot of flak for dumping all their 2021 movies to HBO Max as well and its seen as just trying to prop up HBO Max.

COVID has flipped the world of blockbuster media and I think Disney is the fastest to adopt to the new model.

I've no idea if all these shows Disney/Lucasfilm has in the pipeline are going to be as good as The Mandalorian, but if half of them are this is going to be awesome.
