Daisy Ridley Talks Controversial Decision About Rey’s Origins In ‘Rise Of Skywalker’: “It’s Beyond My Pay Grade”

No matter your thoughts on the most recent “Star Wars” trilogy that Disney released in theaters, you have to admit that it could have been handled a bit more elegantly. Originally planned as a trilogy with three different filmmakers helming each “episode,” the Sequel Trilogy was going to close out the Skywalker Saga that George Lucas began decades prior.

When Lucasfilm and Disney pivoted to streaming and Disney+ in late 2019, their first show, “The Mandalorian,” quickly became their flagship series. The “Star Wars” show made a star of Pedro Pascal and quickly made co-creators Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni the kings of the “Star Wars” television galaxy.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away (or, in 2018, before the likes of “The Mandalorian” and “Andor“), Ron Howard‘s “Solo: A Star Wars Story” was a big deal to “Star Wars” fans. The film did alright commercially, taking in $393 million at the box office off a $300 million budget, but critics didn’t care for it.

It has been five long years since the release of Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” Thankfully, over the past year or so, it feels like the discourse surrounding it has tempered a bit and people aren’t ready to murder each other on social media if you even mention the film. That said, there are still a lot of opinions out there about ‘The Last Jedi.’ And in a recent interview, Rian Johnson is here to at least talk about his intentions with the film, whether or not you believe he was successful.

We’re still buzzing after the season one finale of Tony Gilroy’s fantastic “Star Wars” series “Andor,” a prequel taking place before the events of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” One of the more well-written and executed modern “Star Wars” projects that showed that there were still some untapped places that creatives could explore within the universe that feel fresh and exciting.

When you look at the current era of Disney-owned Lucasfilm, it’s difficult to argue that the high point has to be “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” The prequel film, still now, feels wholly unique from just about everything else Lucasfilm has released over the last decade. And the one-shot film has already spawned a spinoff, “Andor,” which is regarded as the best “Star Wars” TV show yet.

“Andor” season one has come to a wrap with episode 12, “Rix Road,” an incredibly moving, incredibly rousing, symphonic crescendo where Maarva Andor (Fiona Shaw) makes a defining call to action to Ferrix and to the galaxy: to stop sleeping, to wake up, and to fight. Arguably the best episode of the series, it’s up there with the best episodes of TV we saw all year, full stop.

Maybe the just-announced film from writer Damon Lindelof and director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.

It only takes watching the first teaser for “Andor” to know that the latest “Star Wars” series is very, very different than the other Disney+ releases from the galaxy far, far away. It appears the series is aimed at a much older, more mature audience than shows like “The Mandalorian” and “The Book of Boba Fett.” And the best way to explain the stark contrast between “Andor” and everything “Star Wars”-related that preceded it is to note that Tony Gilroy is the mastermind behind the scenes.  And in a new interview with Variety, Tony Gilroy explained the initial idea for “Andor” that he was shown by Disney and why that idea wasn’t going to work for him, which led the filmmaker to pitch a much more “radical” idea to the Lucasfilm executives.  READ MORE: Tony Gilroy Says The Final 3 Episodes Of ‘Andor’ Season 2 Take Place 5 Days Before ‘Rogue One’ Starts “It was in the vein of Cassian and K-2 are like Butch and Sundance, and they’re gonna storm the Citadel,” Gilroy said about the original pitch.
