STAR WATCH

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Red Alert -

It’s one to file un­der “un­sur­pris­ing”, but a third stand­alone “star wars story” movie has been con­firmed for 2020. “I had a meet­ing with [Lu­cas­film boss] Kathy Kennedy and we mapped out – well, we re­viewed – the star wars plans we have till 2020,” said Dis­ney head hon­cho Bob Iger. “we have movies in de­vel­op­ment till then and we started talk­ing about what we’re go­ing to do in 2021 and beyond…”

Closer to the present day, it looks like episode VIII might just have a ti­tle! Un­for­tu­nately, we don’t know what it is yet. Rey her­self, Daisy Ri­d­ley, told the My Dad wrote A porno pod­cast: “I heard a ti­tle, but I don’t know if it’s go­ing to be that. I heard the ti­tle a long time ago be­fore we started film­ing. It’s go­ing to be a while be­fore it’s re­leased, I imag­ine.” Cur­rent favourites in the sFX of­fice are Gen­tle Ren, Leia Cake and snoke on The wa­ter.

on Rogue one, we now know that the mu­sic will still be dif­fer­ent to what we’ve heard be­fore, but dif­fer­ent in a dif­fer­ent way to what we were ex­pect­ing. Alexan­dre De­s­plat, the Godzilla com­poser who was lined up to be­come the first man other than John wil­liams to score a live-ac­tion star wars movie, has left the film due to “sched­ul­ing con­flicts”. His re­place­ment is reg­u­lar JJ Abrams col­lab­o­ra­tor Michael Gi­acchino, a man who’s no stranger to star wars – he was a stormtrooper in The Force Awak­ens.

over at Mar­vel Comics, Kieron Gillen is stay­ing in that galaxy far, far away after his Darth Vader run wraps up. Cur­rently ti­tled star wars: Clas­si­fied, fea­tur­ing art from Kev walker and due in De­cem­ber, his new se­ries’ sub­ject mat­ter re­mains, er, clas­si­fied. Fi­nally, Ja­son Aaron and sal­vador Lar­roca’s on­go­ing star wars se­ries is go­ing where no one has gone be­fore by look­ing into Yoda’s past, fol­low­ing him on a pre-Clone wars ad­ven­ture.

Will the third Star Wars stand­alone movie star Boba Fett?
