This past week Director Debora Chow and stars Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christense and Moses Ingram were seen in Berlin and London. In talking about her character, an Imperial Inquisitor named Reva, Moses Ingram said QUOTE “She is ruthless. She doesn’t care about what people think about the way she does things. She’ll cut people down and get the job done whatever it takes.” The actress went on to say about her costars, “even on set there were lifelong fans who would just get so moved by being around Ewan or Hayden. I think it’s going to be a big deal for fans to see them at the center.” There have been no new nuggets of information about the story shared so far on the press tour but Ewan did say that it took him some time to get back to the Alec Guiness style of speaking for the title role. Obi-Wan Kenobi debuts on Disney plus on Friday, May 27th with the first two episodes of the six-part series.2.Video game industry insider Jeff Grubb said on a recent Grubbsnax stream that the title for the sequel to the wildly popular Jedi: Fallen Order game will be Jedi: Survivor. Grub has also said in previous scoops that gameplay footage from the sequel to the EA RESPAWN game would be shared at Star Wars Celebration later this month. The video game reporter also claims that Jedi: Survivor will be a next-gen console game only. There is no release date or confirmation of the title at this time.3.Keeping with video game news, Lego, the Skywalker Saga continues to make waves in the industry. According to the website GamesBeat, the brick-based Star Wars game is already ranked as the number two selling video game of 2022 so far ahead of the latest Pokemon offering and the epic Horizon Zero Dawn sequel trailing only Elden Ring in sales. 4.Bryce Dallas Howard was interviewed by friend of the podcast, Germain Lussier at io9 recently and of course the topic of Star Wars came up. The daughter of Solo 2 director Ron Howard, has been behind the camera for two episodes of the Mandalorian and the Book of Boba Fett episode titled “Return of the Mandalorian.” When asked if there was a story that would spark her interest in direting a Star Wars film she said quote “Oh my goodness, I think it would take someone asking me.” Bryce will next be seen ON screen reprising her role as Claire Dearing for the third time when Jurassic World Dominion hits theaters June 10th.5.Speaking of directors on Disney Plus Star Wars shows, this week, in a simple photo of a an Ahsoka-logo emblazoned directors chair and a signature cowboy hat belonging to one Dave Filoni, the official star wars twitter account revealed that production has officially begun on the Ahsoka live-action series. Shortly thereafter, rumors emerged from movie scooper Daniel RPK and Adam Frazier that actor Mathew Law has been brought on to the show in a quote “big role.” The Six-foot one Law is best known for a role in four episodes of Agents of Shield. This unconfirmed casting joins other rumored actors including Natasha Loo Bordizzo as Sabine Wren, and Mary Elizabeth Winsted, Ivanna Sahkno (SOK-NO) and Ray Stevenson in unidentified roles. The Ahsoka series does not yet have an official release date.6.Michael Waldron, the writer who worked on Loki and Doctor Strange among other Marvel projects, is finally turning his attention to the long rumored Kevin Feige Star Wars film. He told Variety QUOTE ““We’re finally into it in earnest. I mean, I’m writing away. It’s a lot of fun…It just doesn’t have a bunch of TV shows and movies that you’re servicing on top of it, the way I did with Doctor Strange. So it’s nice..” The Feige film was first mentioned in 2019 and is expected to be a one-off project. There is no title or release date from Lucasfilm for the movie at this time.7.In Star Wars book news, friend of the show Mike Chen is officially a Star Wars novelist. His new book hit shelves on May 10 called Brotherhood and it chronicles events at the start of the Clone Wars and features the relationship between Anakin and Obi-Wan. Included in the book are familiar characters Padme Amidala and Asajj Ventress.

A complete May the Fourth wrap upThe emperor hints at a returnAnd Celebration brings some light and magicThe Kenobi TrailerHasbro FiguresGive us 5 minutes and we’ll give you the week, another flood of news rumors, clickbait and conversation. This is Pete Fletzer and welcome to disturbances in the Force. All the links to the original sources can be found in the notes and I urge you to check them out. 1.This week was Star Wars Day – May the Fourth – and one of the biggest events from Lucasfilm was the release of the second trailer for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. The trailer was 90 seconds and featured a tense moment between Obi-Wan and Uncle Owen Lars, more action scenes between the titular character and various badguys while the voiceover hinted at bounty hunters being employed along with the inquisitors to find the outlaw Jedi. The teaser gave us our first look at Kumail Nanjiani looking worried and wearing what could be Jedi robes. As the promo came to an end, fans witness a robotic arm being attached to what is presumed to be Darth Vader followed by his chest box being attached, lighting up and then culminating in hearing the Dark Lord of the Sith’s signature breathing sound. The six-part limited series drops on Disney plus with two episodes on Friday, May 27th.2.In addition to the Kenobi trailer, a 60 minute behind the scenes documentary lauched on Disney-Plus called Disney Gallery – The Book of Boba Fett. The show gives in-depth background and behind the scenes footage of the series including interviews with all the actors, directors and producers. Included in the documentary is more insight into how they were able to create a digital double of Luke Skywalker using a stand-in and the original actor, Mark Hamill, himself. Disney Gallery – Book of Boba Fett is available now on Disney Plus.3.Technology giant, Apple, dropped a 15 minute behind the scenes documentary themselves on their youtube channel called Behind the Mac: Skywalker Sound. The black and white stylized mini-movie gives fans a look at the creation and application of sound effects to Star Wars films (with peeks at other Disney properties) created at the groundbreaking sound studio. Of note is the particular focus on sounds from the Prequel series of films. This is not surprising however, as the new Kenobi series will most certainly have direct ties to this era. You can find this documentary short on YouTube now or in the links below.4.May the Fourth was also a day for more toy reveals from Star Wars licensee Hasbro. From the 3.75” line of action figures, look for Ahsoka Clone Troopers, Padawan Anakin, Mandalorian Super Commando, Heavy Assault Stormtrooper, Stormtrooper Commander, a Phase I clone trooper 4 pack and a Retro collection multipack featuring characters from A New Hope. From the Black Series 6-inch line, Hasbro announced an Endor Leia, Figrin D’An from the Cantina band, and New Republic Security Droid as seen in the Mandalorian. From lifesized movie props, they are making Obi-Wan Kenobi’s light saber available for the first time as an FX Elite offering and an updated version of Darth Vader’s helmet with electronic sounds and film correct red lenses. All these products are available now for pre-order at various outlets.5.At the Imperial Commissary Collectors Convention last week, Ian McDiarmid, the actor who played Emperor Palpatine SLASH Darth Sidious hinted that he may have some role in some of the upcoming Disney Plus Star Wars properties. On a panel he was on he said QUOTE “There’s a certain show coming soon set right around the time I may have been considered to be very active. Whether or not you will see my physical body, I cannot comment on. But you will certainly feel my presence.” There was no indication which specific upcoming series he may be a part of, but the. Kenobi series will feature Darth Vader and the Andor series takes place in the early days of the fledgling Rebellion.6.As Star Wars Celebration looms less than three weeks away, information about events happening at the event in Anaheim continues to come out. On May the Fourth a opanel called Light & Magic was announced for the Friday of the four-day weekend event. The Star Wars Celebration twitter account announced QUOTE “Be among the first in the world to get a sneak peek at the recently announced Disney plus documentary series “Light and Magic.” The panel will feature Lawrence Kasdan, Ron Howard, Dennis Muren, Phil Tippett, Joe Johnson and Rose Duigan. There is no official word on whether it will drop all at once or weekly.
