Star Wars Influences #26:

Paul Bateman is back to share his thoughts about the Episode IX director shakeup and the return of J.J. Abrams to STAR WARS. Ron Howard tweeted a pic of some Ralph McQuarrie-inspired hieroglyphs found on the set of the Untitled Han Solo Film. Paul tells us where the designs came from and what they could represent. On the TV front, we consider the potential of the long-talked about STAR WARS live action show in the wake of “The Orville” and “Star Trek Discovery” and we speculate on the future of Star Wars animation. Like all fans, we are wondering who Rey’s parents are? Thanks to listener feedback, we consider a Kenobi connection. Would Guillermo Del Toro be a good choice to direct a Star Wars film? Who or what are the Sentinels from Star Wars Battlefront II? We attempt to answer these questions and much more.
