Instead of the trilogy I mean. He gets to expand as much as he wants and there is no immediate pressure on delivering big bucks commercially.

Any chance Kathleen Kennedy persuaded them to leave? After that Austin Film Fest Q&A, they are not popular in the industry atm.
What did they say?

I'm guessing D&D leaving preceded the Austin Fest Q&A by a while. They knew about Trevorrow for months before it was formally announced. I also don't think it's a coincidence they brought on Feige a month ago, back when we were scratching are heads how the timing makes sense between D&Ds trilogy seemingly in 2022, 2024 and 2026 and RJ's seemingly(?) in 2023, 2025, and 2027.

Well, now the timeline makes sense. Feige + RJ, unless RJ also walks away. Who knows.

Although I’d hate not seeing it in on a big screen, that wouldn’t be such a bad idea. But only if it gets an appropriate budget.

as i just said to others on fb, my personal read of the D&D situation is that they got increasingly apprehensive for reason XYZ, got too over ambitious by signing up with Netflix, all while KK was over-steering for more control after R1/Solo/Trevorrow and those two extremes inevitably clashed disastrously

it sucks, i would've loved to see their version of KOTOR and the first jedi.
