Here's why we have no reason to fear AI: they don't understand jokes. Some AI-generated Star Wars jokes here:
Article

I particularly like:

"What do Princess Leia & a table lamp have in common?
They’ve both seen the Emperor’s buttocks."

Now I think of it, maybe the fact they can't tell jokes properly is a reason to be scared...

An X-Wing in the National Air and Space Museum!

An X-Wing Starfighter has landed at a Smithsonian museum facility in Chantilly, Virginia where it's undergoing preparation for eventual display at the National Air and Space Museum. On longterm loan from Industrial Light & Magic, this particular model is a T-70 X-Wing as seen in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. From Smithsonian:

The massive movie prop, which has a wingspan of 37 feet, is being cleaned and checked closely for any damage that may have occurred while in transit from Industrial Light & Magic, the LucasFilm division that created and built the X-Wing Starfighter. The full-size model was shipped in pieces and is being reassembled so it can be hung by rigging from the ceiling at the National Air and Space Museum building in Washington, D.C., in 2022. ...

Disney Plus steaming is about to film a series called Obi-Wan Kenobi staring Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker and Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Fans are wondering how Disney will put these two together in the correct timeline. ?

Jar Jar Binks WILL be in it, but then subsequently will be considered so awful that he (it?) will be edited out, either by a 'fan cut' or possibly even officially.

Or a stray bullet will hit him.

Stay optimistic.

It works for me if not for the timeline

He's been replaced by the far less offensive Gina Carano.

Does Jar Jar getting squished by the Millennium Falcon, piloted by a young Lando Calrissian, work for the timeline?
Sacrifices have to be made.
Some people give up stuff for Lent, others throw Jar Jar under the bus.

Oh I do like the idea of the Millennium Falcon being painted red and made up to resemble a double decker bus.......C3PO as the conductor!

Surely, since McGregor and Christensen have aged by the same amount since Revenge of the Sith, it shouldn't be a problem if the show is set halfway between that film and A New Hope?

Besides, presumably, if we see Anakin's face, it'll be made up all Vader-y.
