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.

The Skywalker Saga – Disk One The Phantom Menace

Have you ever watched a Star Wars movie and realised that you didn’t notice something even though you’ve watched it a dozen times or more? I know a lot of fans don’t like the Sequel Trilogy of movies, but I actually do and I never noticed so many things that I noticed rewatching this last night.

One scene in particular – on Tatooine when Qui-Gon Jin and Darth Maul duel, I never noticed the hilt of the lightsaber that Darth Maul is using. Have you ever noticed how big it is? So he isn’t using the double-bladed lightsaber, he’s using one part of it which technically, is a lightsaber. Some people like to refer to his weapon as a sabre staff but I prefer to say double-bladed lightsaber.

Anyway, on Wookiepedia, it states that when his lightsaber was broken after the duel of the fates with Qui-Gon Jin and Obi-Wan Kenobi, he used it as a single lightsaber. Which is odd because he used it before that fight in his duel with Qui-Gon Jin on Tatooine.

Can anyone clarify this for me? Because I am only using the references online for this. I have no idea why it says that he used it as a lightsaber after the events of The Phantom Menace when he was using it as a lightsaber way before then.

I haven’t looked at the other two disks yet but when I get around to them, I’ll post about any odd things I notice or experience while watching. I will also (excitedly) blog about the extra content, whatever that is. I am not looking it up online because I want to surprise myself!

Till my next post, be safe and happy and I’ll catch ya later!

26 Blu-Ray Disks of 4K Resolution Star Wars? Yes, Please!

Just a quick post to talk about the 26-disc Limited Edition 4K release of The Skywalker Saga on Blu-Ray.

I debated about buying this for a while before I actually committed and bought it yesterday. And trust me, you do NOT want to know how much it cost.

I will probably wake up in a nightmarish sweat tonight dreaming about it 🤣

If ever there was a time for me to say I am a ridiculously huge fan of Star Wars, that time is now.

May The Force Be With You… and hopefully, also with my bank account 😆

What huge purchase have you made as a Star Wars fan, or a fan of any franchise? Let me know in the comments!

Stay safe and well my friends and I’ll catch you in the next one!
