Colin Trevorrow Would Have Redeemed Kylo

Reylos were so close to getting what they wanted.  But, the studio chose to give them the cold shoulder instead.  Recently, Midnight’s Edge uploaded a summary of Colin Trevorrow’s Episode IX: Duel of Fates.

One Twitter user noted:

Trevorrow

And Colin Trevorrow himself liked that tweet:

Know this Lucasfilm; hell hath no fury like a Reylo scorned.

Get Your 11 Dollar Spork

Dennys

The spork costs more than the cook’s hourly wage.

You may remember the story from the early days of Galaxy’s Edge, which told of fairgoers who were stealing the metal sporks and then selling them on eBay for a nice profit.  Or you could think of it as a coupon when you consider the cost of the whole venture for a fan.

But Disney doesn’t like profiteers, so they removed the sporks from the park.  But now the sporks are back, for $11.  From insidethemagic.net:

Disney Now Selling Sporks for $11 at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Remember when Galaxy’s Edge first opened and we all thought it was crazy that guests were stealing the sporks from Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo and selling them on eBay? Well, apparently Disney saw this as an opportunity and have now started selling the famous spork in Galaxy’s Edge. Yes, seriously!

Disney originally removed sporks from the parks as so many of them were being stolen but now it seems they have the perfect solution to those guests who want to eat in style at Galaxy’s Edge.

Fear not, you aren’t just paying $10.99 for a metal spork. The spork also comes in a handy travel bag that has the Galaxy’s Edge logo on it alongside writing from the native planet of Batuu.

China Gets Worse For Disney

Apparently, Hong Kong and Shanghai Disneyland both had to be closed due to the Coronavirus in China.

Shanghai Disneyland continues to be closed until further notice.

Lucasfilm Incapable Of Delivering The One Project People Are Asking For

The Obi-Wan series has been put on ice.

Kenobi

Would be better getting produced after Kathy is gone.

Collider reports:

Two independent sources with knowledge of the situation tell Collider that the Obi-Wan series has been put on hold, as the crew that had assembled at Pinewood Studios in London was sent home. A timeframe was not given, but the crew was told that the show would be down “indefinitely.”

We’re hearing that Lucasfilm president and Obi-Wan producer Kathleen Kennedy was not happy with the scripts. Sources tell us that what will most likely happen next is the scripts will be reworked with the hopeful goal of reassembling this summer, but there’s always the possibility that that timeframe could shift.

It sounds like Kennedy would rather ensure that the story being told with this Disney+ series is as good as it can be on the page before they roll cameras, and rather than move forward with hesitations, she’s asked that they go back and rework what’s on the page.

What didn’t Kathy Like?  Too many white males?  Not enough blue haired lesbians?  No petite brunettes to represent Kathy?  Who knows.

The Hollywood Reporter writes:

Sources tell THR that the scripts — only two were written — and story became an issue and that the entire package has been jettisoned. Lucasfilm is now on the hunt for a new writer to pen the series. At the same time, sources say the project is being reconfigured from six episodes to four.

It is unclear when the show will ramp up again, although insiders stress that McGregor remains attached to star and Chow remains on as director. Disney had no comment.

It is unclear why scripts became an issue so late in the process. One source said the Kenobi story trod similar ground as The Mandalorian, seeing the Jedi master lending a protective hand to a young Luke and possible even a young Leia, perhaps mirroring how the Mandalorian took Baby Yoda under his protective custody.

 

Reylos Bully Star Wars Social Media Manager Off Of Twitter

There’s an absolutely delicious thread on Twitter posted by a Kylux shipper who goes by the handle @saltandrockets.  This Kylux shipper is claiming that Reylos have bullied the Star Wars Social Media Manager Michelle Buchman off of Twitter.  The Reylos are accusing Michelle Buchman of belonging to the Fandom Menace and also of being racist against Kelly Marie Tran.  How absolutely satisfying this is, given that Michelle Buchman is the lunatic social media manager who likes to express misandry and anti-Christian bigotry.  Never a dull moment for Lucasfilm.

Buchman1

Hey, remember back when we used to talk about twin ion engines and kyber crystals?  Now we get to talk about polyamorous menstruators, and listen to shippers screech something about “community.”  Good times!

Now, SJWs are universally ineducable.  So Michelle Buchman will never have the epiphany whereby she realizes that the Reylos are now doing to her, exactly what she and her colleagues have been doing to the Fandom Menace for two years.  That simply won’t happen.

But, I do wonder if Lindsey Romain, Lady’s Reviews, Katie McCort, Bethany Lucina, or even Matt Miller from Esquire will report on any of this?

I mean, unlike the Kelly Marie Tran Instagram Incident which had only vague comments for the media to interpret in a manner that was favorable to their narrative, this incident has outright point-blank public comments from the bullied party herself.

So does this qualify as “toxicity” now that the Star Wars social media manager has been bullied off of Twitter?  And what pretzel bending logic will they use to convince themselves that these Reylos are alt-right trolls and/or Russian bots?  Will the legacy media reference this incident every time they write an article about anything?  All these questions and more await answers!

In the meantime, allow @saltandrockets to tell you the tale of Reylos bullying the Star Wars social media manager off of Twitter.  Enjoy!

The suspended account above is not the same as Michelle Buchman’s account, which is still active.  The spelling of the last name in the handle is different.  Diedre vs. Deidre.

Michelle Buchman has decided to protect her tweets.

Jedi Texts Written In Persian

Remember in the old days when the Aurebesh font was created to give Star Wars an otherworldly feel to its written language.

Well, today’s “creators” have seen fit to plagiarize a page from Al-Biruni’s Kitab al-Tafhim which describes the phases of the moon.  Here’s the original work:

Moon

Here is an image of the Jedi texts from the TROS Visual Dictionary which describes the Phases of Mortis.

Turns out the Star Wars galaxy isn’t all that far, far away after all.

Even more amusing is that the TROS Visual Dictionary was written by Pablo Hidalgo.  So what gives, Pablo?
