You would think that if it comes down to having delay Black Widow again that they may have to release it on Disney+ or something and take the loss.
Perhaps they could release it in theaters in other markets besides the US that aren't having the same kind of issues.
As a HUGE Star Wars fan... I'm okay with this. A little bummed out, but I accept that the current world situation doesn't allow for anything to be "business as usual". Delaying things a year because 2020 is more or less the year where everything stood still fairly logical if you ask me.
Plus, it also gives writers more time to polish their scripts before production starts. The Sequels were a mixed bag, but overall they were fine. Just not as star-spangled awesome as people expect from such a titan of a franchise. Then again, the track record for Star Wars movies hasn't exactly been stellar.
It also gives us one more year of potential TV shows, which is honestly where I think the best Star Wars content is to be found.
WOW you cannot STILL be this dumb! All old people live alone right? And the immunocompromised don't need groceries right? Or is it just you young MAGA kiddos who can live purely huffing Trump's nuts? Try. PLEASE try, just a little, to think beyond you. Not even far beyond. Think of YOUR grandma maybe?
I could honestly live quite happily without watching another 3 hour computer game livestream of space WoW x Pocahontas. I haven't even managed to re-watch the first one in full. I'm genuinely surprised there's an appetite for a sequel, let alone the 5 or whatever films Cameron said he was going to shoot.

I'm a huge fan of Flight of the Conchords, so I'll hold onto some hope that his movie might have some potential, but considering I haven't heard anything about Brett, Jemaine, or Rhys joining the Star Wars universe, I'm still a little wary. I'm currently fantasizing about the 3 them traveling the universe in the Millennium Falcon, and personally I think it has great potential, hopefully he goes that route.
There are no real plans for new Star Wars movies. These dates are place holders only. There are no scripts, directors or writers attached, nothing. The sequel trilogy and its continued box office drop-offs ensured Disney was going to put more feature films on indefinite hold.
Disney's new SW IP is this High Republic line that is to premier with a novel sometime soon.
What? Those didn't seem like a finely crafted trilogy to you? The way it all tied together so nearly into an... Was gonna finish, but it felt wrong to spend more time on this comment than they did in all 3 scripts.
You know, on Avatar I would agree, but with Star Wars the two movies that weren't part of the actual series were imo actually pretty decent. And with Disney doing well on spinoffs like the Mandalorian I feel like once they've escaped the terrible Skywalker extended narrative there might actually be some quality movies out there in the future.
Could be horribly wrong, but that's my two cents.
You have to look at it from a 2009 point of view. It was a magnificent visual spectacle unlike anyone had ever seen before. I still remember how watching it in IMAX 3D absolutely blew my mind like it was yesterday. Its technical accomplishments had a *huge* impact on cinema. 10 years later, pretty much everyone has the technology to pull off what Avatar did for the first time. It's a "seinfeld is unfunny" sort of situation but visually.
I agree that the story and the characters and whatever are sorta meh though. As I said, I'm more interested in the "big picture", the larger setting of the universe that movie took place in.
The first scene with the orbiting space ship was totally fucking unreal. It's the closest I've felt to being in space - ever. That even includes new VR experiences. The next scene where what's his name is floating inside the ship - also mind blowing.
I think they both were more stunning compared to VR because there was no motion blur, SDE and it was perfectly clear.
The Bluray etc will never compare to that first cinematic run
I agree that I'm not sure why he's so excited about it now since the original wasn't all that great as a movie, but the reason it was so popular when it came out is easy.
It was the first big budget movie that did 3d right. People didn't go see it because it was a great movie, they went to see it because the visuals were something that to most people were simply amazing. As with any new tech, the visuals and the 3d effects have been eclipsed since then. So now we are just left with the story. Which wasn't bad, but wasn't great either.
Well... I said *potentially* interesting for a reason. There's not much in the way of lore of course, besides what you can gather from the background. What really interests me is the technological setting of the movie. More specifically, the humans having established trade routes to other star systems using actually plausible-looking spacecraft that don't use any sort of FTL travel. I'm a sucker for that kind of sci-fi and I'd love to see what good ol' James Cameron would do with it.
I also want to see Frank Jr. return to Earth and reunite with his triplets. It's been too long.
I care. I care a lot.
I love Star Wars. I want more Star Wars. And I love that we're getting more Star Wars with all the new shows like The Mandalorian and Kenobi and Bad Batch and Cassian Andor, and several more.
I also love we're getting more books and comics, in particular this new era of Star Wars called The High Republic helmed by a handful of comic and book authors.
I *also* love that we're getting a Fallen Order sequel AND the upcoming Star Wars Squadrons game, which looks *fantastic* based on what we've seen so far.
I kept wondering who they were marketing to. I guess I know now. I kept wondering "who the fuck are these tools *crying* watching the trailer for part 3 after Mickey took a dump on their chests with parts 1&2? Thanks for filling that in for me...
Intellectually I know that there are folk who will pay to have someone shit in their mouths... Still a shock after all these years to read it tho.
No. The original release date was 2022 which means production was supposed to start late 2020/early 2021.
Given the delays in production because of the pandemic, the new Star Wars trio movies will start coming out a year later, starting in 2023.
> Meanwhile, a trio of “Star Wars” movies will debut around Christmas every other year starting in 2023. The first of three films will launch on Dec. 22, 2023, and two follow-ups will hit theaters Dec. 19, 2025, and Dec. 17, 2027. The studio has kept its cards close to its chest about what those films will entail.
It's just going to be the special editions of the prequels with extra cgi and a couple of extra 30 second scenes, I hear one involves Jabba the Hut and Anakin where Jabba is deciding if he should buy Anakin.
They missed such a huge opportunity with TLJ. The concept of a gray type Jedi that uses the force in neither the wooden ways of the Jedi or the Sith was modern and intriguing. Keeping Rey as being anyone or a nobody could have really caused the franchise to take a leap forward. Such a missed opportunity in my opinion.
Not really Star Wars as a whole, but the Sequel Trilogy.
Just look at the seventh season of The Clone Wars, or The Mandalorian, or Jedi: Fallen Order. All amazing Star Wars content, revered by fans and critics alike.
Star Wars is still great. It's just the Sequel Trilogy that is a bit of a mess.
I agree with you there about Rey. It would have been far more interesting if her parents actually HAD been drunk traders who sold her into servitude.
I also think it would have been great to show that the Force is stronger when you use both the Light and Dark side together. It always seemed to be going that way anyway. The more Ray went dark, the stronger she got. Same with Ezra in Star Wars Rebels. He became much more powerful after learning and kind of using the dark side.
At the end, the Jedi could be warrior monks called "The Skywalkers," not as a family name, but as the name of the order, and they've finally found balance between the two sides.
Marvel Studios seems to be their own thing, like with Disney having no input in it. But it’s weird that Disney is letting Marvel Studios do what they want.
Or, maybe that’s not the case and Disney is just curious about Marvel, because they may say screw it and release Black Widow in November anyway, because if it’s true that WV or FATWS could spoil BW, then they may release it so WV and FATWS can premiere on Disney+ already.

BW isn't going to affect the release plan for the shows.
