It is well known that Disney plans to restart Star Wars with a new trilogy, in another galaxy far far away, in a time far far away (2022 at the earliest). What we’ve assumed until now was that The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson would be making them. The only chatter coming from the Mouse House has been from Johnson, who’s stated multiple times that he’s working up a Star Wars trilogy.

When CEO Big Iger was planning out the day of this announcement, he likely picked the week before the final episode because he figured GoT hype would be deafening. It sort of is, but not for the reasons he had been hoping. Without getting into too many spoilers, millions of fans are enraged about a certain twist, regarding a certain beloved character, that seemed to come out of nowhere (although there have been hints dating back to Season 1).

Plus, there’s also Star Wars Resistance on Disney Channel.

Disney’s The Rocketeer was unappreciated in its day, but has grown a cult following in the decades since its unheralded release. What’s not to like about it? It’s a pulp adventure tale in the Indiana Jones vein about a hotshot in a jetpack who punches Nazis on a blimp and
