    I thought a November release would be a good time frame for a film like this... these type of films are harder sell these days, but the cast should help. November should avoid the Summer blockbuster type of competition. I would imagine RJ will be done with post production in 3-4 months.

    It's Oscar-release season. Late November and December, so it makes sense. I don't know that it is a hard sell. I suspect they realize this film won't be a blockbuster, but they are going to try and sell it to the audiences who enjoy these sorts of films.

    That is a understatement … the cast is pretty insane.:cool:

    It is now easier to list who isn't in it than who is.;)

    EDIT: I've only just realised that there will be no movie on the horizon after IX:( Such thoughts didn;t trouble me before I joined this site.:rolleyes:

    This is true only until we get information to the contrary. And Star Wars Celebration is coming up and there's probably gonna be a ton of new stuff announced and teased there ;)

    But yes, it is mainly TV shows for a while now, it seems.

    Not quite what Bob Iger said in the fall. He said they would focus on the Mandalorian and on the trilogy by the D&D team (Game of Thrones guys).

    I feel like guessing whether or not his trilogy was canned without a major trade publication like THR or Variety indicating that the Johnson-Lucasfilm relationship has soured isn't really worth spending that much time, especially considering that Rian is currently making a completely different movie, so there won't be any major developments on the front of his trilogy at least until late 2019. Think about it - had Rian done something inappropriate or Lucasfilm had not been happy with him, would they have allowed him to make a non-SW film before enbarking on creating a whole trilogy of films. Besides, I cannot stress it enough, Lucasfilm and Disney are quite happy with TLJ. It made them over $1.3 billion, had very positive reviews, gave Disney satisfying rise in merchandise and was also made in collaborative atmosphere, had a shoot that was calm and had a very good atmosphere (thanks to Ram Bergman's, Rian's long-time producer, good organisational skills) and was finished four months before the premiere. Not only that, Rian is not a sex offender and also shows up to the work, something that doesn't seem to be that obvious for a director, but I digress. Bob Iger may not be attached to Rian as he is to JJ, he may also prefer TFA, because it is more friendly to the masses, but there really isn't that much that he may have against him. He was signed up for a job and he delivered and since they were happy with the results they offered him to extend his contract.

    (maybe if he were, TLJ would have been nominated for best picture)

    To further your point, if they did have an issue with Rian, they wouldn't asked him to direct Episode 9 before asking JJ to do it as a last ditch effort.

    By "horizon" I meant nothing coming to the cinema the following year. I should have phrased it better.
