For a while there, it didn't look like it was the case, but Solo co-writer Jon Kasdan has confirmed on Twitter that there's a link between Saw Gerrera's Partisans from Rogue One and Enfys Nest's Cloud-Riders from Solo.

1,471: The Belfast/Obi-Wan/April 2019 Rumor Again?!

7/14/2018
More
So this rumor is coming back around again. Somehow, a visit by George Lucas to a Belfast suburb in November 2017 has been spun up into a story alleging that an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie starring Ewan McGregor will begin filming in Northern Ireland in April 2019.

1,470: Chewbacca's Best 10 Seconds Ever

7/13/2018
More
Chewbacca's appeared in six Star Wars movies prior to Solo: A Star Wars Story (the OT, Revenge of the Sith, and the two sequel movies), but the seventh time's the charm for him. The father-son Kasdan writing team does more for the character of Chewie in 10 seconds of dialogue than any other movie has done for him. Punch it! ***I'm listener supported!

Episode 1,469: Why Did Chewie Trust Han in the Mud Pit?

I was just sitting around, happening to think about Solo: A Star Wars Story the other day, as one does. And I got to wondering: Why is it that Chewie decides to trust Han when they're down in that mud pit together, where they first meet? I think I have an answer... Punch it! ***I'm listener supported!

BONUS EPISODE: THR Sources Say Billy Dee Williams Returning for Episode IX

This rumor's been kicking around ever since Billy Dee Williams had to cancel a convention appearance due to an unknown movie conflict. Well, now it's kicked up to another level, as The Hollywood Reporter is quoting sources that say Williams will, in fact, be reprising the role of Lando Calrissian in Episode IX.

1,467: Episode IX Pre-Production Update

7/10/2018
More
Episode IX is still firmly in pre-production mode - no announcement on principal photography just yet, though it's supposed to be starting later this month. Meanwhile, Keri Russell is allegedly in talks to play a role in Episode IX, and based on her physical appearance, folks are jumping to conclusions about whether her character may be related to Rey. But is that a good thing? Punch it! ***I'm listener supported! Go to http://Patreon.com/sw7x7 to donate to the Star Wars 7x7 podcast, and...

With Solo: A Star Wars Story slipping out of the Top 10 in box office totals during the seventh weekend of its release, this will be the last weekly Scoundrel Business update, though we'll check in on Solo from time to time during the summer.

In the spirit of something we were talking about earlier in the week, about sharing the joy of Star Wars with new generations, I humbly present "Are You Scared, Darth Vader?" (Thanks to Disney-Lucasfilm Press for sending me a copy to check out!) In the best tradition of children's books - stunning and unusual artwork, a surprise twist or three, and a breaking of the metaphorical fourth wall - this has laughs for the little ones and is witty and savvy enough to reward the adult reader with...

On July 7th, 2014, Star Wars 7x7 went live on iTunes with four episodes, and a promise to deliver a daily dose of Star Wars joy. Four years and more than 1,500 numbered and bonus episodes later, it's time to pause for a moment and share a heaping helping of gratitude for people who've made this milestone possible.

1,463: The Political and Social Depth of George Lucas' Star Wars

7/6/2018
More
Star Wars isn't so resonant because of its pulling from Joseph Campbell's monomyth. It's because it also pulls from political and social history as well - and not just the history of the United States, though that certainly plays a part. And when you take a closer look at the ideas and values Lucas wove into the good-guy side of the space opera, it's kind of surprising to hear people complaining about Kathleen Kennedy and Rian Johnson for following and building upon the same ideas Lucas...

1,462: My One Philosophical Disagreement With George Lucas

7/5/2018
More
You can talk about individual story choices all you want - and the Force knows I will, too - but when it comes to the bigger picture of Star Wars, I only have one particular disagreement with what George Lucas did with the Star Wars Saga. Being that I'm of a certain age, you might guess that it has something to do with the Special Editions, and you'd be correct. But I think I have a different take on it from what you might hear most often from people who think he shouldn't have tinkered...

1,461: Scarcity and Star Wars

7/4/2018
More
Many times over the years here at Star Wars 7x7, we've talked about how the scarcity of Star Wars films over the first 30+ years of its existence may have been part of the secret sauce that helped create the level of devotion it has achieved. After the reception of Solo: A Star Wars Story, and reports from anonymous sources about how the standalone movies are being considering in the wake of Solo, what does that mean for the value of scarcity now?

1,459: Star Wars and the "Public Trust"

7/2/2018
More
If I've learned anything in the past four years, and especially in the past six months, it was that I was wrong about something fundamental from the very get-go. In Episode #1 of the podcast back in 2014, I asserted that Star Wars belonged to us as fans, and that George Lucas created a new kind of public trust by creating something so culturally resonant as Star Wars. Well, parts of the reasoning were true, but the conclusion was anything but. Punch it! ***I'm listener supported! Go to...

We're doing Scoundrel Business a day early because we've got important stuff to talk about during this, the Anniversary Week for Star Wars 7x7, and it begins here.

We're about three months away from the launch of the new Star Wars animated TV series, Star Wars Resistance. That's a guesstimate - no debut date has been announced, but by looking at the season premiere dates for the four seasons of Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD, three months is a reasonable estimate. Voice actor Jim Rash revealed a bit about his and Bobby Moynihan's characters, and Star Wars Insider magazine just revealed who's doing the voice of lead character Kazuda Xiono. Plus, whose...

Occasionally, folks talk about what Lucasfilm could learn from Marvel in terms of using character movies to build up to one big extravaganza. But what if Lucasfilm is already doing it?
