There's a new vid today with Kathleen Kennedy, Papa George, and Lynne Hale as they talk about the Star Wars phenomenon. No earth shattering news but an interesting short chat:

Meanwhile, apparently Lucas was asked about his involvement in Eppy VII and his response was "I don't really have much to do," which makes sense since he retired to do his own stuff. But I wouldn't be at all surprised if he doesn't drop by the set or post-production every now and then! As we all know, Star Wars is a hard habit to break.

Just ask our pal, Ewan McGregor. He'd love to come back!

As I've said on the SWPAS Facebook page, fine with me! It seems to me that Ewan's far more of a fan of all of this than the publicity has let on and over the past few years, it seems to me Ewan kinda misses the GFFA. I don't see why they can't sneak in a holo or a spectral visit in this new trilogy. I say it's entirely possible Anakin taught him the ability to look young and sexy again ;).

But there's another possibility. Disney wants to do spinoff movies that can take place in any timeframe featuring different characters a la Marvel. How about an Obi-Wan film that takes place between ROTS and ANH? They're publishing that book "Kenobi." Why not make that into a movie? That would be SWEEET. *Rubs hands eagerly.*

I read a new post on the official Star Wars blog from Steve Sansweet on the crazy rumors of the past and a post on Club Jade about the Spoiler Wars of '97-'98. I agree with Club Jade on getting a handle on disseminating information and that giving LOTS of behind-the-scenes content and stuff like they did with ROTS is the way to go. It won't stop the crackpot rumors but it will control on-set moles or people stealing scripts and trying to sell them to fan sites.

I'd been sort of toying with the thought that a "Force ghost" appearance of Obi-Wan would establish straight off that the dictates of the Expanded Universe would be open for revision in these new movies, but in such a way that it might (I said might) sweeten that bitter pill for at least a few people. I'm not quite as sure whether something could be done with an "in-between" movie (as opposed to a possibly introspective novel), but that's just me.

You know, I was always hoping that if they did the TV show (which isn't going to happen for who knows when) I thought it would be a cool idea to have an episode dealing with Obi-Wan in exhile. I'd still love to see that. Let McGreggor go wild playing Old Ben.
