In today’s Star Wars news update, we talk about a Solo: A Star Wars Story and how it might get a sequel – more Han Solo and Darth Maul? Qi’ra actress Emilia Clarke recently spoke about her character returning in War of the Bounty Hunters but there is a rumor that she has already been approached by Lucasfilm and Disney. Could she appear in the Book of Boba Fett or maybe even in the Lando series? Alden Ehrenreich also said he wants to return and was recently rumored to appear in the Mandalorian universe at some point either in Season 3 or the Ahsoka Tano series. A few weeks ago, Bob Chapek said we’d get a Solo series but corrected himself and Kathleen Kennedy announced a Lando series featuring Donald Glover and maybe Billy Dee Williams during Disney Investor Day when Obi-Wan Kenobi was also announced so we’ll definitely see Han Solo and Chewbacca again soon!
We also discuss the Acolyte which has worried Star Wars fans after Leslye Headland said that the Disney+ live-action Star Wars series will have writers who haven’t even seen a Star Wars movie. Finally, we look at the Bad Batch and I give my thoughts on the Clone Wars spin-off series so far. Dave Filoni, Brad Rau and Jennifer Corbett have been doing an amazing job and we are now on the Bad Batch Episode 8 – halfway through the series. It follows Clone Force 99 in the aftermath of the Clone Wars and during Palpatine’s initiation of Order 66. Who is Omega? Will Crosshair have a redemption? What will the Empire do next?
