The Resistance Broadcast – Did Reactions to Episode VIII Cause Script Changes for Episode IX?
On this episode we have some fun speculating whether we think J.J. Abrams may have tweaked and changed the final draft of the Episode IX script after some of the reaction to The Last Jedi!
We also introduce a NEW segment “The Will of the Force”, where we run down a bunch of possibilities and we each say whether we think they will or won’t happen! To cap it all off, as always, we hear from you in #ResistanceTransmissions! Come join the fun!
THE WILL OF THE FORCE
- Will Lucasfilm make a Boba Fett film?
- Will Lucasfilm make an Obi-Wan Kenobi film?
- Will Alden Ehrenreich ever play Han Solo again?
- Will Daisy Ridley appear in a live action Star Wars film or series after Episode IX?
- Will Adam Driver appear in a live action Star Wars film or series after Episode IX?
- Will we find out Poe Dameron is Force sensitive in Episode IX?
- Will Snoke return in Episode IX?
This week’s DISCUSSION has us discussing whether J. J. Abrams decided to tweak some things in his final draft of Episode IX after some of the divisive reaction towards The Last Jedi. We have no direct knowledge of this in any way of course, but we speculate and wonder if some of the things we’ll see in the final installment will be due to some of the reaction towards the middle chapter. James and John both have clear differing opinions on this, and while it wasn’t a STAR WARS WAR, you’ll want to check it out!
This week in RESISTANCE TRANSMISSIONS we asked you: The final shot of Kylo Ren in The Last Jedi has him connecting one final time with Rey as she boards the Falcon. He says nothing, but the shot is zoomed in on his face. What is going through Kylo Ren’s head in this moment BEFORE Rey closes the door on him?
