You beat me to it -- though the reports I've seen are attributing anonymous sources, so it would be good to have Disney confirm.

Microbiotic world???

I think George is like Spielberg and Cameron and has Marvel envy.

Me?

I'll just go and see 'Ant Man and the Wasp' to get my microbiotic fix.

World Cup 2018

Wow, a couple of days in and it's turning out to be an exciting tournament -- maybe the U.S. not being in it is a good thing.

Just got home from my son's game and we watched Argentina vs. Iceland. ...

Another good sign. . . .

Dune to be broken into two films (https://consequenceofsound.net/2018/05/denis-villeneuve-dune-split/).

This a good sign because there's too much good content and multiple narratives in the novel...

With a terrible $29M in its second weekend in release, it's clear Solo is a disaster and calls into question the future of more pre-New Hope films (Boba Fett, Solo sequels and Lando). Given Solo's...

I agree with many that Solo is better than Last Jedi -- which isn't saying much.

Bottom line for me is that Solo makes the FIFTH prequel film to New Hope. Frankly, as an at-best casual Star Wars...

Fantastic picture.

Given the size, scale and depth of the set, I wonder it this means the films will be shot with Imax and/or other large format cameras (65mm & 70mm). If so, that would be...

No -- I won't take that bet.

In post #83 above I said that the change wouldn't happen for a year or so. Given the 2020 release date for Indiana Jones, I say that she gets to stick around to some...
