"Political correctness gone mad" for Star Wars bigots:
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/21/movies/kelly-marie-tran.html

Kelly Marie Tran wrote an article on the fanboy reaction to her role in TLJ, and how it (understandably) affected her. But she's not going to take the insults lying down. They should incorporate this as a speech against the Empire in SW Ep IX, it's inspiring.

Hey, Greg Grunberg's back for Episode IX! Didn't realise his character was called Snap Wexley, though. Sounds like a hamster's name. Maybe not the Wexley bit.

If you thought The Last Jedi was perfectly fine, and don't understand the out of proportion hatred, join the club:

Seems that hatred was driven by Russian bots and trolls to sow the seeds of discontent among the online community, because the more people fight, the happier the Russian authorities get. "Give yourself to the Dark Side...!"

I suppose Luke turning into a miserable old prick made sense to anyone who's grown up to become less idealistic ... although he did turn up to save the day at the end of the film sort of. We all wanted to see Luke elevated to Yoda wisdom instead though. I had a friend's son flat out ask me to train him a few years back in a job I'd hired him for .. my response was pretty much "Never trust anyone including me, everyday's a different wave you'll be riding (I made that bit up because he was expecting something profound and his earnestness was getting on my nerves), asking people to 'train' you is bullshit because this isn't the movies, try to beat me at my own game every chance you get, still never trust anyone, never tell anyone what you earn, don't gossip, don't steal anything, don't fuck your waitress's and don't start turning up late for work" ..

He's turned out to be excellent, he's now married, floor manager at a busy Cromer restaurant and they have a beautiful baby daughter :badge: .. don't ask me to do it for you .. do it for yourself .. which was why when she did that humble handing over of Luke's sabre and he just shrugged and threw it away? .. piss off, I'm not your hero.

Hopefully he's being equally as much of a prick to his new staff.

Here's The First Look At The New Star Wars Streaming TV Show

Jon Favreau announced this week that his long-gestating television series set in the Star Wars universe will be titled The Mandalorian and center on a Boba Fett–like gunfighter.

Timeline-wise, the show will take place between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

After finding Solo kind of boring, I'm not sure I'd shell out for a Disney streaming service for just one show.

Somebody's CGI'd Harrison Ford's face into Solo - A Star Wars Story and it doesn't look too shoddy (apart from the car chase scene) ..

Someone else has parked an AT ST scout walker next to the A38 in Devon
Paul Parker has the intricate model of the Imperial scout walker, which featured in iconic movie Return of the Jedi, set up by the side of the A38 a mile outside Ashburton, Devon.

He put it there two weeks ago to create a local landmark and talking point similar to the Willow Man statue beside the M5 in Somerset, and to create interest in the market town.

But he received a letter from Teignbridge District Council saying he had 21 days to remove it because he didn’t have planning permission.

Miserable twats ..
.. and knowing the A38 in Staffordshire, it wouldn't surprise me if someone twocked it. I learned how to drive on that road btw, it was once had the highest road accident in the country. The police are missing a trick, they could sit in it for speed traps.
