So, Kathleen Kennedy has been taken off Star Wars...and they are bringing some old EU stuff back. George Lucas, Dave Filoni (behind Clone Wars and Rebels TV shows) and Jon Favreau (The Mandalorian) are now running Star Wars. And one thing is to have old EU favorites show up. They are also doing damage control and retconning the sequel movies.

Honestly I saw it in a recommended youtube video last night. When looking for a credible source today, I am not finding much other than GL has a cut of The Rise of Skywalker where Anakin shows up and Kathleen Kennedy was taken off star wars (though it seems to be more of a "want to work at bad robot productions rather than being forced out). I guess the rumor mill is running but nothing official as far as I can find now.

Yeah, I heard it about a month ago and it's just been talk since.  Nothing real credible.  It would be interesting to see, but I have a hard time thinking Disney is going to retcon the Sequel Trilogy.  Maybe ignore it to a certain degree, but pure retcon I don't think so.  Those rumors were way too "perfect" which is why I have a hard time believing it.

I stopped caring about SW when I saw the first one of the sequels in 2015. I can't even remember the title, and I'll not look it up.

Anyway, they pulled the same stunt on The Last Of Us 2 as they did on the second sequel. These hacks have the midas touch of shit. It's a bit sad, but now I kind of just enjoy it. All in all I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing to stop caring about pop fiction stories.
I agree with the inhumane treatment of animals.

Star Wars is like a stick of gum that was sweet and tasty at the early stages but quickly lost flavor when the ewoks turned up. It's been long past time to spit it out.

Dave Filoni also ran The Mandalorian with Jon Favreau (with Taika Waititi too).

It's in good hands with Dave Filoni running the fluff ship, and Favreau running the overall production.

Star Wars has its moments. The sequel trilogy, though mostly not great, had some good ideas not executed well, but also suffered from no overall vision or oversight. If you announce a Trilogy, you need to know (and stick to) the broad strokes of a GOOD story. If its not good, then go back and make it good. They wanted to cash in quickly on their acquisition, when instead they should have taken their time.

And they needed outside voices to help polish and refine.

Yeah, putting $4.05 billion into a new property does make a company want to see return on that...

I am really looking forward to the new stuff coming out, though.

Same. I was only part way into season 3 before I stopped watching.
