Blade Runner said:As I finally brought myself to watch the Rise of Soywalker, I immediately thought two things. The first 15 minutes was at least an entire movie or two fast forwarded. Then I kept watching and it was ok, of course compared to the filth produced in Episodes 7 and 8, the worst of them all. It then reminded me of Game of Thrones, and I began to think, what was the most disappointing? I think the later seasons of Thrones, especially the last season (obviously) were so awful that that series in fact was the biggest disappointment of all time. And it's not even close. I cringe to think of how bad that last season truly was, especially given the huge (1.5 year?) break; it's almost funny how quickly I want to erase that entire thing from my mind. Both productions are amazing in that they really show you how good the Lucas Star Wars prequels truly were. I know that'll get people going, but it proves the whole thing is a hoot!

‘Star Wars’ Series From ‘Russian Doll’ Co-Creator Leslye Headland in the Works at Disney Plus (EXCLUSIVE)
A new “Star Wars” series is in the works at Disney Plus, Variety has learned from sources. The series hails from Leslye Headland, the co-creator, showrunner, and executive producer of the critically-acclaimed Netflix series “Russian Doll.”
Details of the exact plot of the series are being kept under wraps, but sources say it will be a female-centric series that takes place in a different part of the “Star Wars” timeline than other projects. Headland is said to be attached to write and serve as showrunner on the series, with the show currently staffing.
Reps for Disney and Headland did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for comment.
Headland also directed multiple episodes of “Russian Doll.” The show was nominated for 13 Emmy Awards for its first season, ultimately winning three. Headland began her career writing and directing the “Seven Deadly Plays” series, which includes “Bachelorette” and “Assistance.” “Bachelorette” was the basis for her directorial film debut starring Kirsten Dunst. Her other film credits include writing the 2014 remake of “About Last Night” and writing and directing “Sleeping with Other People.” Besides “Russian Doll,” her other TV credits include “Terriers,” “Blunt Talk,” “SMILF,” and “Black Monday.” She is currently under an overall deal at Fox 21 Television Studios, with the studio now under the Disney umbrella.
She is repped by Michael Sugar at Sugar23 and Steve Younger at Myman Greenspan. She is repped by UTA for directing.
News of the new series development comes after Variety exclusively reported that a third season of “The Mandalorian” is already in the works at Disney Plus ahead of the second season premiere later this year. “The Mandalorian,” one of the launch titles for the Disney-branded streamer, proved to be a major hit and pop culture phenomenon upon its release.
There are currently two other live-action “Star Wars” shows in the pipeline at Disney Plus — an Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor and a Cassian Andor/”Rogue One” prequel series starring Diego Luna. Variety exclusively reported that Joby Harold had recently joined the Obi-Wan series as the writer, while Stellan Skarsgard and Kyle Soller recently joined the Cassian Andor series.

Aspyr made republic commando and the fanbase is not the casual gamer with KOTOR neither. It seems to me less likely than, say, Payday 3, now that they have cosigned publishing with koch media. But they did it to d2r, so yea.
