Disney CEO Announces New Live Action Star Wars Show


Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger has announced a new live action Star Wars series for the upcoming Disney Streaming service; Disney+. The show - which will go into production next year - will focus on Rebel Intelligence Officer Cassian Andor and his missions for the Rebel Alliance before the events of Rogue One.

Now here's the really good news...Diego Luna will be returning to the role. Luna told StarWars.com:
Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me. I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey.
 adding
We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply. 

The only question that remains is; will K-2SO be joining Andor on his adventures? The Imperial Enforcement droid was captured by Andor and reprogrammed to serve the rebellion. He was played in Rogue One by Alan Tudyk (Dodgeball, I, Robot, Firefly). I personally would like to see both K-2SO and Tudyk return to star alongside Luna. Thanks to their excellent chemistry, the pair stood out to me as some of the more interesting (not to mention hilarious) characters.


Currently there isn't any information regarding a release date. But with production starting sometime next year and Disney+ set to launch in late 2019, it's possible that the first episodes could be available around launch time.  

Between this and Rogue One, 'prequel' is certainly looking like a much less dirty word. Looks like I now need to subscribe to another streaming service!

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so! Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically

Dune | Moustache Trailer Reaction

Like one of the massive space ships that feature within it, the trailer for Denis Villeneuve's take on 'Dune' has landed... and it's magnificent. If you've not seen it, or you simply want to watch it again, you can check it out below: Trying to tame Frank Herbert's legendary sci-fi novel, it seems, is a challenge like no other. But if anyone is up to the task, it's a fair bet that it's Denis Villeneuve. The French-Canadian director is no stranger to reviving beloved sci-fi properties; Blade Runner 2049 is a worthy sequel to the original Blade Runner, and an outstanding movie in its own right - the best of 2017 in my opinion. Add to that his previous projects (Sicario, Arrival, Prisoners), and you've got a director with a talent for combining complex narratives, fascinating characters and stunning visuals, in a way that's both gripping and intelligible. From the moment the trailer begins you can feel the epic scale of what has been created here. G

Long Way Up | Average Guy TV Review

Ewan McGregor, Charley Boorman, and the Long Way Round team are finally back for their third epic adventure, and given how 2020 has turned out, they did it just in time. Right now it's the closest we can get to experiencing these far off places, making 'Long Way Up' a perfect piece of escapism. Beginning their trip at the southern most tip of South America, in Ushuaia, they'll travel 13,000 miles through 13 countries. Their route will have them criss-cross between Argentina and Chile, before entering Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico and the US, crossing the finish line in Los Angeles. This new adventure is quite different to their previous outings, and yet it all feels very familiar. Despite the gang being more than a decade older - not to mention some pretty life-changing motorcycle accidents for Charley along the way - the gang really haven't changed all that much. Not that that should come as much of a s
