Orka and Flix move to the forefront in ‘From Beneath,’ Sunday’s new episode of Star Wars Resistance.

A brief one-time advertising opportunity on Disney+ for Starz is the price that Disney paid to get The Force Awakens from Starz, per The Verge. Which seems odd, given that TFA – which was one of the last Disney films on Starz under a pre-Netflix contract – hasn’t actually been airing on Starz is a while, but far be it from me to assume when the contract terms actually expire.
Reporter Anthony Breznican – now at Vanity Fair – is back with a new trailer for The Mandalorian, and our first look at Ming-Na Wen in the show. Her character, Fennec Shand, is a mercenary/stealth assassin whose ultimate allegiance “remains to be seen.”

The first, from Variety, says the pair wanted to tackle the origins of the Jedi – and ultimately disagreed with Lucasfilm on the direction that should take.
Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter leans on multiple commitments and the concept of “toxic fandom,” always a handy scapegoat.
I’m not sure I’d take either explanation at face value, particularly give all the padding in both articles about past issues and “concerns”, but overall, the idea of creative differences seems pretty likely – and probably for the best.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, Ewan McGregor talks about his Obi-Wan “practice beard,” reading William Shatner’s book Get A Life on a prequel set with Ahmed Best, the big Disney+ reveal, and his new movie, Doctor Sleep.
Meanwhile, Hayden Christensen was spotted at Disneyland’s Galaxy’s Edge. The official Disneyland Twitter tweeted the photos and then deleted the tweet, promoting even more speculation as to what secrets he’s keeping. However, note that @StarWars later tweeted the pics themselves.
