I don’t think George has any say whatsoever anymore.
Probably not, but Kathleen Kennedy said something along the lines of not doing it because George didn't want to. If he were to say "ok, go ahead..." it could change things.

interesting... Does Disney have respect to Lucas at all?
Should the proposal gets a full support from both parties, Disney and Lucas, i do wish just only 1~6 gets Criterion release.
Whatever done by JJ.Abrams... stays with Disney/FOX badge.

There isn’t a separate thread for Tales of the Jedi (that I could find) but I will say that between that show and Andor, we’re seeing some of the best Star Wars ever produced.

I was also thinking about how the Disney+ shows started after the movies (The Mandalorian started just as Rise of Skywalker was released), and the TV shows have shown a diversity of tone and a dramatic emphasis that the sequel trilogy lacked (and I’m not a sequel trilogy hater). It will be interesting to see how the new movies stack up against the shows when they eventually resume (which seems to be either 2025 or 2027 at this point). Andor, in particular, is grownup Star Wars (hard to believe it exists in the same universe as Gunguns and Ewoks). Going to be hard to go back to silly CG creatures after that.

I'd like to see that as well with existing characters. It may be a good way to see more of young Han and Lando or the sequel characters, etc.
Unfortunately, I think using Han or Lando would necessitate a full length movie or series (especially since a Lando series was announced two years ago), just given the star power involved - although I'd certainly want to see them in anything. But hell yes, I'd love to see some Star Wars specials -- anything to redeem the infamous 1978 Holiday Special (which should still be remastered and released).

I'm just guessing but I think getting bigger names like Donald Glover or Oscar Isaac to come back may be easier if they only have to do an hour-ish long "episode" rather than being in multiple movies or a TV series that may run for years.

Stumbled on this. Is this the first merchandise from the Holiday Special? ( I realize it has Rey instead of Leia, BB8 instead of R2-D2.)

I don’t recall Darth sporting so much red. Is this one of those super expensive collectibles or something that comes with a special edition blu ray. Looks like the former. I do recall the retitling because Jedis don’t take revenge.

Vader is tinged red so it has the look that he has on the Revenge poster. This is an exclusive at Star Wars Celebration Europe (a fan convention run by LFL) so they're just taking an existing figure and changing the paint job so they have a 'new' toy to sell.
