    Disney buys LucasFilm

    RIP Star Wars. So after The Rise of Skywalker brings a hopefully satisfying ending to the Skywalker Saga next month, we won’t be seeing any Star Wars movies for quite a while. The cinematic arm of this massive franchise is going on a hiatus and for the first time since the Disney-owned Star Wars era began with Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015, we’ll be going years without a new big screen Star Wars movie. That said, Bob Iger was sure to reassure investors that just because Star Wars will be absent from the multiplex, the brand will still be ever-present. The CEO cited the three Star Wars shows in development for the Disney+ streaming service (The Mandalorian, the Cassian Andor series and the Obi-Wan Kenobi series) that will carry the torch for the franchise during its cinematic hiatus. Disney doesn’t think of Star Wars (or Marvel for that matter) as just a feature film franchise; it is a brand and one that plays a role in multiple aspects of the company’s business, from the TV side to the theme parks. But as far as the theatrical releases are concerned, Star Wars won’t be having any for a while. This affirms what we have long suspected with regards to the Star Wars franchise, that it would be taking a break following J.J. Abrams’ The Rise of Skywalker. There is no Star Wars movie on the calendar for the next couple of years and to make it official, Bob Iger has confirmed to investors that Star Wars is going on hiatus theatrically. What Bob Iger didn’t make clear in the earnings call was when specifically Star Wars would return to the big screen and with what movie. That’s to be expected but if we are to take his “a few years” comments literally, it would seem the company still plans to release a Star Wars movie on December 16, 2022, the release date previously reserved for the David Benioff and D.B. Weiss Star Wars films. What will slot in there now, we don’t yet know. The decision to slowdown Star Wars films is seemingly the result of a hard-learned lesson for the company. Bob Iger took some of the blame for the performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story and has admitted that they put out too much Star Wars into the marketplace too soon. He has since come to believe that Star Wars movies are special and less is more and this theatrical hiatus reflects that. The last Star Wars movie for a while arrives in theaters on December 20 with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Check out our 2019 Release Schedule to see what else you can look forward to this year.

    Week 10

    What an uninteresting week. At least Mahomie is back, so that's good.

    Theoretical AFC Championship scenario

    Quite frankly I hope the Pats lose before we get a rematch, but that's just me.

    Theoretical AFC Championship scenario

    Ravens are actually the last the team to the beat the Pats in Gillette in the postseason. You've gotta assume the Pats would win. Playing a team for the second time is gonna benefit the Pats more than the Ravens, IMO.

    Week 9

    So the season's halfway over. That's a bummer. Who is Lamar Jackson? Do the Ravens even have a chance tonight? How many teams actually have a good shot at winning the SB? There's a bunch of teams with good records, but I don't actually believe in most of them. Feels like the Bengals are trying to find the next Minshew. Maybe we're finally entering the era of QBs where you finally don't have to be only a first round pick to be a decent qb in the league. Also feels like there's more questions are this point in the season. Usually things are somewhat solidifed by now.

    What Game Are You Currently Playing?

    Blizzcon stuff: (politics be damned) D4 stuff is interesting. Mounts and climbable maps will be different. Hopefully this will be merge the best of D2 and D3. Overwatch... I dunno how I feel about this. I don't really like the new art style, nor the PvE stuff. The PvE stuff mainly because I'm not keen on the idea of replaying the same story stuff over again. I guess that's sorta not much difference from the same PvP over again, but it feels different. IDK. We'll have to see once more stuff comes out and we get closer to whenever the release is.

    Disney buys LucasFilm

    Imagine rushing the final season of GoT so you can do Star Wars only to find out that maybe Star Wars isn't what you want to do after all.
