I've got some other things I'm developing as well that are exciting. I think eventually over time — I don't know if that's after three or after four — I'll want to pass the baton to a director that I trust to take over, so I can go do some other stuff that I'm also interested in. Or maybe not. I don't know." "I got more excited as I went along. Movie four is a corker. It's a mother****er. I actually hope I get to make it. But it depends on market forces. Three is in the can so it's coming out regardless. I really hope that we get to make four and five because it's one big story, ultimately."

Fans were able to submit their droid designs, and the winner would be used in a future project. Here is the official Star Wars website article with pictures of the winner. Just thought it was a cool bit of trivia that you guys might appreciate.” Greg, New Orleans: “During the climax of episode 5 when Reva is crawling on the ground and finds the communicator, she first finds her lightsaber. During the fight Vader broke her lightsaber in half, but now it appears to be whole. Did anyone else notice this mistake, or am I missing something?” Patrick D: “ So I just finished listening to your episode discussing this week's episode of Kenobi. My question for you is about Vader and him finding out about Luke and Leia. I haven't read any of the Doctor Aphra comics yet, but I did recently listen to the Doctor Aphra audiobook and thought it was fantastic. In this story, Aphra meets Vader for the first time after the destruction of the first Death Star. Vader uses Aphra to help him with different missions and investigations. The thing Vader becomes fixated on and asks Aphra to help with is finding out more info on Luke Skywalker. Vader, as well as Aphra, eventually figures out that Padme gave birth to a son before her death and that Luke is Vader's son. If Vader doesn't find out about Luke until after episode IV, then he can't find out about the kids in next week's episode.

In Episode 2, We know that her greatgrandma abandoned (so the family believes) her daughter to find her way to the train alone.” J.J. for Idaho  writes in “I have an idea about where Kamala's grandmother's bangle comes from. It reminded me of the ten rings from “Shang Chi.” Maybe they have the same source, or similar sources. If the bangle is Kree, maybe the ten rings are also Kree. It could be that the Kree scattered these artifacts and one ended up in Pakistan and one in China.

In The Spoiler Room: Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 5 FeedbackPeter from Melbourne writes in: “one thing that I have found it odd that the show hasn't grappled with is that it appears that Leia has grown up in what looks like a pretty sheltered and safe life and then suddenly she is surrounded by murder and death… a storm trooper getting slice in half by a laser wall, lots of shooting and fighting and she doesn't seem to be having any reaction to it at all… do you think this hasn't been thought about or is the force protecting her? I guess it sets up her reaction to things in films where she seems to have a measured response to death.” Alex writes in :Given (1) the new theories that each episode parallels a film from the Skywalker Saga, and (2) the interview with Ian McDiarmid at Star Wars Celebration, where he discussed seeing Hayden and Ewan training with lightsabers… …do you think it's possible that the Emperor will appear in either the 5th or, more likely, the 6th episode (given it's probable connections to Return of the Jedi and its throne room sequence)?” Calvin from London, UK: “Just listening to the Slashfilm Kenobi spoiler special. You (quite rightly) week after week keep bringing up Kenobi's relationship to Leia in ANH and pointed out in this episode Leia actually heard ‘Obi-Wan'. You brought this up with Brian who said he'd put a lot of thought into this and her message actually only ever used ‘General Kenobi'. As I'm sure you now have countless emails telling you that her message actually kicks off with one of THE most famous lines in movie history, ‘Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope'.” Reza suggested Memory rub as a solution?

Opening Banter: Brad is back!   In The Spoiler Room: Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 4 FeedbackPat R writes in that “On the speculation that Reva was a padawan before her time with the  Empire, I believe I have more backup. It looks like Reva is the ONLY inquisitor that holsters her lightsaber on her waste while the others do on their back. Her saber is collapsed so the spinning function that the Grand Inquisitor uses to take out Flea, is not functional as well. I believe this is another sign that Reva was trained by the Jedi, she stuck out her fighting style with what she was taught before the Inquisitorius Program.” A lot of discussion online has been about the moment when the mole looking alien named Freck (voiced by Zach Braff) offered Ben and Leia a ride and they see the imperial symbol on the back of his truck. Darth Vader's voice? In an interview with Vanity Fair, Joby Harold was directly asked if the events in episode 2 had broken canon, including the fact that Grand Inquisitor does die in Rebels –but in a completely different way. "As you know, we would never break canon," the screenwriter responded. So that's all I'll say. Canon is everything."
