Rogue Squadron Update: It May Be Back On Track, Prince Xizor Is Canon Again, The Acolyte Casts Amandla Stenberg | The Cantina
Welcome to The Cantina. It’s Friday, it’s last call, and we have Star Wars news, rumors, and entertainment! The wild tale of Rogue Squadron’s production continues! Patty Jenkins is no longer directing Cleopatra, and this will allegedly allow her to work on Wonder Woman 3 and Rogue Squadron more. Star Wars continues to realize how VALUABLE the old Expanded Universe was and brings Prince Xizor (Shadows of the Empire) back to canon. Lastly, we discuss The Acolyte casting of Amandla Stenberg as its lead. However, this is The Cantina and you know we’re going to get into some crazy tangents. So, order your damn drinks and let’s get this Sith-spit show started!

A long time ago… In this not far, far away galaxy I (Kyle) ran a weekly Star Wars column called The Cantina. The end of each piece was called “Last Call” and topics rotated and eventually included a once-a-month podcast reviewing all of the Star Wars films leading to a release day group review of The Rise of Skywalker. Afterward, we reviewed Season 2 of The Mandalorian. You should really check those out HERE. Now, that glorious podcast has returned under the title of the original column and for the foreseeable future, we’ll be bringing weekly Star Wars news, theories, reliable leaks, and more.
