    What do these guys do when their "inside info" doesn't ever come to fruition? Who is dopey enough to keep listening to them? I hope his entire audience is people laughing at him but I'm sure it's not. "He complains about Last Jedi AND about Brie Larson AND [inevitably] about SJWs for 47 minutes five times a week?! I'm definitely subscribing to this channel."

    I watched that video over the weekend and laughed the whole way through. There were "plot points" mentioned I don't think anyone (and I mean ANYONE) would EVER approve being in a Star Wars movie. This same poster is anti-Star Trek Discovery, anti-most of Marvel and anti-Star Wars. The video mentions "toxic white man"...at which point I laughed myself silly. That's all I needed to hear.

    I put zero stock in those rumors, or one of the plans floated which says the movie is going to be delayed to May.

    That's hilarious. They'll literally release the movie with shots where they cut to J.J. just describing what the action should be because the effects aren't finished before they push it to May.

    Bingo. That was also a laugh moment for me...this can be the biggest dumpster fire there is and it's still getting to theaters in December.

    So I'm going into the movie ready to see these characters one last time and to enjoy the heck out of it. No expectations.

    I have a ticket for for December 19 that tells me it's not being delayed. I'm guessing you probably do as well, as do many people on the forum. I don't know why people insist on perpetuating this crap.

    It will be ready. No question.

    100% correct, my friend. December 19, 6:30 pm and then again on Christmas Eve.

    It's click bait and I fell for it. I knew what I was getting when I started watching. It was amusing for 15 minutes on a Saturday afternoon. :D

    Total Film magazine interviewed J.J. Abrams (as regurgitated by Games Radar), and I thought this quote was interesting:

    "Rian helped remind me that that’s why we’re on these movies – not to just do something that you’ve seen before. I won’t say that I felt constrained or limited on 7, but I found myself wanting to do something that felt more consistent with the original trilogy than not. And on 9, I found myself feeling like I’m just gonna go for it a bit more."

    I know what this means. He's going to blow up Tatooine.

    I'm hearing that the WGA has awarded Derek Connolly & Colin Trevorrow story credit as the original writers, despite the fact that Lucasfilm threw out their script and Abrams & Terrio started over from scratch.

    Routine. Story credit is secondary to screenplay credit. No residuals for story by credits.

    Trevorrow has made a remarkable career out of what seems to be an extraordinary limited skill set. Good on him, I suppose.

    Correction.

    “Story By” credits do indeed receive residuals. Just very little compared to “ screenplay by” or “written by” credits.

    Very little of a billion dollar grosser still works out pretty well. Not a bad payday for losing your job. We should all be so lucky.

    Not only that. He gets that "payday" any time the property he has credit on gets played on any service, unless there are specific limitations on what counts toward a residual payment. He could, potentially, have a relatively continual stream of income coming from some property that he was given credit on, so even a small cut could add up.

    Like I said, we should all do so well when we get fired. Disney is welcome to fire me from Episode X anytime!

    do those residuals really amount to all that much though? We’re not talking about points on the profits here (which no one ever ends up collecting on anyway since the producing entity gets charged to essentially zero profit by the studio. Except the people who have enough clout to have their points deal with the actual studio). Nice to have but I doubt Trevorrow is set for life on that alone. We’ve probably all heard the stories from some creative person saying “I still get a check for a few hundred dollars every six months or so”

    I guess it depends on what you consider “all that much” ;)

    New interview with Kathleen Kennedy. It doesn't say much, but she lets us know that the movie Feige will be doing is a way off and it sounds like Johnson is still very much in the mix for future projects. She admits that they have no idea what is next - the possibilities are endless she says. She gives no indication as to when the next film might be, so I would not hold out hope that they meet that 2022 date. (If they were thinking about this in advance, they might have taken advantage of Feige's relatively light 2020 schedule and planned his Star Wars film in that period, but that's clearly not what is happening.)

    I didn’t get that impression at all. She doesn’t mention his planned trilogies at all for future films. Unless I missed it.
