1,435: New Episode IX Working Title! (Star Wars Episode IX Update)

Podcast cover
Read more

We're still in pre-production for Star Wars: Episode IX, and the details are still very hush-hush. But there's been a change in the working title of the movie, and it tells us absolutely nothing about the content of Episode IX - much like "Red Cup" and "Space Bear" told us nothing about Solo or The Last Jedi. But chances are there's some hidden meaning behind the choice, because J.J. Abrams is involved. Is it a Tolkien homonym? A drag queen reference? Or even a sly jab at a certain segment of Star Wars viewers? Punch it!

The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary by Pablo Hidalgo has a few spreads dedicated to Canto Bight.

It was a bit of a bombshell - Collider's report that Star Wars standalone movies have been put on hold. Then ABC News (like Lucasfilm, also owned by Disney) reports that it's not the case. EW's Anthony Breznican and Nerdist's Amy Ratcliffe haven't chimed in on it as of Thursday evening. But two usually-reliable spoiler sites have some insights that, when thrown into the mix, may help to clear up the rumors. Punch it!

1,968. Jedi Business: Iger's November "Hiatus" Talk Is More Than Just Old News

Podcast cover
Read more

Circling back to some "news" from earlier this month! On a Disney earnings call, Bob Iger talked about Star Wars movies going into a "hiatus" after The Rise of Skywalker. Some media outlets paired this with the news of Benioff and Weiss ditching their deal to focus on Netflix, and tried to make a bigger thing about it than it is. On today's episode, I'm setting the record straight, and going one step further by dispelling the notion of a "hiatus" in the first place. Punch it!
