  • During an earnings call, as reported by Hollywood Reporter, Bob Iger confirmed that Disney is working on multiple live action television series.
  • And lest we forget about The Last Jedi with all the new news, Rian Johnson did a pretty good job of explaining the cave mirror scene which definitely needed some explaining (via his recent Q&A with Collider).

“So, it was just an image that came into my head of this infinite line of, you know, possibilities of self in this infinite line of possibilities of identity and the notion then of playing with which one is the quote-unquote real her. Which one is going to be her and where does it end, and it does end someplace. It ends at a place that shows her basically her kind of worst fear which is that there is just her. She’s alone which, again, is true from a certain point of view and very untrue from another point of view. From that last scene on the Falcon with Leia, I think, is kind of the response to the end of that mirror scene.” –quote via Jedi News
