On that note, I continue to be not at all charmed by outlets that are nickle and diming their Star Wars stories. The biggest offender right now is Total Film, who’s been dribbling out quotes from their latest cover story via GamesRadar. There’s J.J.

Original Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow and writing partner Derek Connolly will get credited in The Rise of Skywalker – with a “Story by” also shared by J.J. Abrams and his co-writer for the film, Chris Terrio, Collider reports. We’ll have to wait and see what that means for the final product.
Ridley is also on the cover of Marie Claire, and this time you get the whole article.
We’ve got a bunch of cast talk show appearances coming up. Driver, primarily promoting Marriage Story, will be on Stephen Colbert tonight (11/18) and Seth Meyers on Wednesday (11/20). Next week, Ridley stops by Jimmy Fallon on Monday (11/25) and Live with Kelly and Ryan Tuesday (11/26) morning followed by John Boyega the very next day (11/27).
