To my earlier condemnation of Kennedy, I should also add that she is the FIRST Star Wars exec to ever
oversee a financial loss at the box office (in the form of "Solo", which grossed a measely $390 million
worldwide when it needed to gross at least $500 million to break even). As bad as his prequels were,
Lucas himself never experienced a financial loss with his movies.

So that's three strikes against Kennedy.

11/3: Ron Howard says nothing related to Solo is being developed in the movies or Disney+ areas.
No rumblings, though, and this is not a spoiler or anything, but I think there is interest in those characters. I think there's interest in the gangster world somewhere down the line. But I can assure you there is nothing being developed right now for a movie or Disney Plus. But, one great thing is there has been a lot of affection shown for Solo, and so of course that keeps boding well for them to eventually turn it around.

Take with a huge lump of salt as this rumor comes from a less reliable one (but fun to ponder) reportedly Lucasfilms is mulling a Luke Skywalker series but are unsure about using de-aging and are also considering Sebastian Stan.

You'd think they're done with the Skywalkers but just in the movies since they're still appearing in other mediums. And Stan has come up already online. But I think it's just fluff after all the hype from Luke's recent appearance. Though I wouldn't be against a recast or a series about him in the New Republic era.

I'm down for it and I am hoping that this rumoured series will reintroduce Mara Jade, as in having her being introduced in the current Disney canon.

So many announcements, so few of them have me interested.

The only three that I care about are "The Acolyte", "Star Wars: Visions" and the possible Luke Skywalker series.

Apparently I matter to people. That's sort of nice to know. Granted, I'd prefer more favorable opinions, but it's nice to know people care I exist, even if it's merely to wish I don't.

Hello,
I know this is a weird long shot and I doubt you'll even get this message, but I'm doing some lost media research and I have very few leads. Some old forum posts that came up on a Google search lead me to believe there's a small chance you may be able to help.
Last month, someone found the Cyberchase pilot
