Michelle Rejwan Now Senior VP Live Action Development And Production For Lucasfilm

Hollywood Reporter reports Michelle Rejwan is now the Senior VP of Live Action Development & Production. She will oversee new feature films as well Disney+ series while still producing with president Kathleen Kennedy. That seems like a hefty responsibility to drop on someone who's previous credits at Lucasfilm are producing The Force Awakens & The Rise of Skywalker. Kennedy really sees something in her though, having “seen first-hand her skills collaborating with writers and directors, and I've been incredibly impressed with her creative skills and her ability to manage the complexity surrounding these massive projects.” Can she be the Feige of Star Wars? Time will tell. After the hate Kennedy got from the last installment, which I loved by the way, one could think this is just to give her a scapegoat if things don't go as well over the next few projects. Curious to see how much influence this winds up having as a whole. What do y'all think? Trust in Kennedy? Or do you think maybe a more vetted choice would have been better?

Star Wars Episode IX Panel At Celebration Unleashes The Trailer, Name, And A Little More

The Episode IX panel was probably one of the most fun panels I've ever sat through. Worth watching just for Billy Dee Willams alone. A couple really big things I took out of this though besides the name & trailer was J.J. mentioning this takes place some time after TLJ, the whole group will embark on this mission, & the characters fighting the light & dark to face the bigger evil. Which left me like Colbert, who hosted the whole thing, wondering what the bigger evil could possibly be. Oh yeah, then there's the name Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker, & a perfect teaser trailer. This thing has me so pumped, & if you're not convinced that's the emperor laughing in the background, Celebration cut to Ian McDiarmid himself to roll it yet again. I know we're gonna see more, but they could have my money based just on this. Luke's lightsaber's back, apparently so is some form of Luke, & Emperor Palpatine himself. This looks epic! The backflip over the tie fighter, Kylo's run-through Braveheart style, Lando back in driver's seat of the Falcon? A perfect send off for the Skywalker saga. The trailer's at the bottom if you haven't seen it. Check it out, & don't forget to let me know what you think in the comments, like, & share.
