    • Here’s hoping, but the main drivers of that were Jon Favreau & Dave Filoni. Unfortunately, I do not see their name in the above article. Hopefully, their magic rubs off on Kathleen Kennedy.

      • Narrator: “It didn’t.”

        I hope all the best, there’s just been so much incompetence in most things Star Wars outside the Favreau verse. The latest books have a character which is literally just a rock. Not like the Thing from Fantastic Four where it’s a rock person. It’s literally a rock. You can’t tell it’s not a rock, but apparently it is a navigator. The novel then hand waves how it does that away.
