A Star Wars movie needs to be about more than just one character. I think they’ve learned that lesson by now. TV shows can develop one character over time, but I think that for Star Wars, a major motion picture on the big screen needs to have multiple leads in an ensemble. Each trilogy revolved around a trio of heroes—I like that approach. I don’t need a whole movie just about Ahsoka.
I disagree, they just keep picking the wrong and most unpopular characters. Instead of Jan Erso and Han Solo, they should have made a movie about Boba Fett (set during the Original Trilogy) and Grievous (Origin Story).
Jyn Erso wasn’t unpopular. A Han Solo movie could have done much better but its release date was poor and the lead didn’t look enough like Ford. Grievous I love but wouldn’t have done well solo wise
She was unknown, which is even worse. You are proving my point with Han Solo. Grievous definitely would have done well given that the Joker made a billion dollars which was a story about a villain.
Joker is a completely different scenario.
This seems hypocritical
It would probably make people who haven't seen Clone Wars and Rebels to stay away from it. Even her episode in Mandalorian was full of references from those shows. The character is pretty much a victim of her own success.
Highly doubt the GA knows or even cares about Ahsoka. It would probably do Solo numbers, potentially even worse.
Less than Solo. The only Star Wars characters that could carry a film on their own are Darth Vader and Boba Fett.
Also Obi Wan Kenobi I think.
That's a coin toss. Prequel fans have a lot more love for the character than anyone else.
But he is also an Original Trilogy character and has a lot of love from OT fans as well. I think he and Vader are the true crossover characters between the two mega fandoms, moreso than Boba Fett anyway. And this is coming from one of the biggest Boba Fett fans around.
It doesn't matter how much love Kenobi has. When you make a Kenobi movie it needs to be something more epic and interesting than what that happened to him in the previous Star Wars movie. If you can't make that then your movie will be boring, that's why the Solo film flopped. And I am not sure there is much space to tell a Kenobi movie that is more interesting than what that happened in episode 3 and 4.
