SWCU – Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Gets Release Date for Disney+!

HELLO, my lovely Star Wars friends! I hope your week is going well! If it’s not, it’s bound to very soon ☺️😊

Disney has just announced the release date for the highly anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi series via multiple media outlets. Disney Plus will be featuring the show, which will be released on May 25th this year! The fandom rumour-mill had the Kenobi show slated for a possible May 4th release. Everyone knows what May 4th is, so it makes sense that Star Wars day would be the day. But alas, no! We get to wait another three weeks for the Obi-Wan Kenobi Series premiere.

Most of the primary cast members have already been confirmed. Hayden Christensen will be reprising his role of Darth Vader made famous in George Lucas’ prequel trilogy film, Revenge of the Sith.

We’ve been waiting a while now for the Kenobi show since it was officially revealed. Apparently, Ewan McGregor has known for years that the series was planned to be made! Imagine hiding something for that long!

Now go forth, my fellow Star Wars friends and share this with anyone you know that loves Star Wars!

THE KNIGHTS OF REN ***POSSIBLE SPOILER TRAILER LEAK*** – STAR WARS CINEMATIC UNIVERSE

🛑‼️POSSIBLE SPOILERS / POSSIBLE STAR WARS LEAK READ AT YOUR OWN RISK🛑‼️

HOLY GEEZ, this star wars leak/spoiler is HUGE! This is primarily huge because NOBODY, and I do mean none of the sources that usually report this stuff even knew about it! One of the subreddits I frequent posted about a couple of days ago, but it got buried under everything else, so I didn’t see it until this morning.

THERE is supposedly a trailer that features the Knights of Ren. Here’s the trailer (bear in mind it might get taken offline, especially if it’s legit), so watch this right now; otherwise, you might miss out!

 

My understanding of The Knights of Ren is that they started with a dark side user named “Ren”. This came from the comics, so none of this was known before the comics first revealed the character. By the looks of this character in the teaser/trailer, that isn’t him. Ren looks nothing like that in the comics. When I say “looks nothing like him”, you can easily see what you want to see in this hazy image. The lighting is so bad that you can’t make out any specifics (probably on purpose).

Here’s the comic version of Ren. Assuming that is who the person in this clip is, it could be someone else entirely! Or the voiceover could be Ren speaking and this dude in the clip is a random Knight of Ren we don’t yet know.

Disney has not announced this project. Which explains why nobody knew about it. If you use Reddit, check out the Star Wars leaks subreddit. They don’t even have this listed there as a possible project in development by Disney. So that tells me that someone kept this very quiet until now, OR it’s fan-made, and a hoax, and almost the entire Star Wars fandom fell for it 🤣

It wouldn’t be the first time a “legit” source got it wrong. I remember many supposed “leaks” that were merely fans getting excited over nothing at all and everyone else joining in.

This is what being part of a fandom is all about! I dunno who or what this particular trailer is, nor do I know anything else, so I am in the same boat right now!

My opinion on the clip – it looks pretty legit to me. Also, Sony is really good at shutting down leaks. But Disney doesn’t seem to be as ruthless as that. Even if this was a leak, there’s still a good chance Disney is allowing the leak on purpose to gather momentum from the fandom. We know that Solo: A Star Wars Story flopped. And there have always been opinions within the fandom that Disney releases too many things too soon and saturates the market. Maybe this came from inside Disney/Lucasfilm for a reason.

Also, I did a quick check on the music in the clip, too – it was unrecognised by Shazam. But again, that doesn’t mean anything, it could be some random audio file from YouTube as there are thousands – all free.

So much to think about, and it’s SO EXCITING! What do you think, Star Wars friends? Let me know in the comments as I am dying to chat away about this 😁😆

Will There Ever Be a Continuation of the Skywalker Saga?

I saw a post talking about this via Star Wars Latin America’s website and they even have a video discussing it all and it got me thinking… what if?

Now, I know that Disney said they were going to tie up the Skywalker Saga with the death of Ben Solo and Rey becoming the “Skywalker” to end it all. But do you think Disney will ever reconsider going back to the Skywalker Saga at any point?

We know that the publishing side of Disney has already released details of their plans to focus on the Star Wars universe during the time of the High Republic. That much we know and I’ve blogged about it before.

The issue I have with that is we know Disney’s only concern is making money. I mean let’s face it, they’ve pretty much proven to the world that money is a primary concern for any of their franchises and as a business, that makes sense. But that could also mean that they aren’t at all interested in entertaining the fans which is why I think they decided to wrap up the Skywalker Saga. They knew they couldn’t really build on the sequel trilogy any further so they needed to create a new “brand” within the Star Wars universe for fans to get excited about once more.

The High Republic RULES, right?

Are we really all that excited about The High Republic? I have my reservations. The one thing that the Skywalker Saga has is that everyone knows the characters – and loves them. Building a brand new “saga” for the Star Wars universe means creating characters fans will love and stories fans will be interested in. Are we as fans ready for that?

Should that fail, do you think Disney would reconsider going back to the Skywalker saga at any point?

Let me know in the comments, readers as I am keen to get your point of view on this topic!

Stay safe out there and I’ll catch you in the comments or in tomorrow’s post.

Master Yoda Is Looking for Padawans in Lucasfilm’s the High Republic!

Feel like signing up? Well, I know I do! But seriously, I saw these images of Young Jedi Yoda first via Overly Devoted Archivist, but the images were taken from the Star Wars official website Star Wars dot com.

The concept art itself was created by Iain McCraig, Grant Griffin and Jeff R. Thomas and explores a much younger Yoda. In terms of the star wars timeline, Yoda is about 700 years old in these images. If you recall Yoda’s discussion with Luke in TESB, he had been training Jedi for hundreds of years at that point. So Yoda was already a member of the High Council, and his story will focus on adventures with the Padawan’s that he is charged with training and shaping into Jedi.

How exciting does that sound? It sounds pretty awesome to me! So here’s a question for my readers – if you were alive at this period in the timeline, would you seek out Master Yoda to follow in his footsteps? Would you want to train under one of the most powerful Jedi’s in Galaxy?

That’s a no-brainer, right?

How excited for The High Republic are you? Do you think this Star Wars era will be better than the Skywalker Saga? Why or why not? Let me know in the comments, friends!
