I did my presentation today.
I’ve discovered a little problem I have.
I keep taking deeper and deeper breaths after each slide until I reach the point where I literally can’t take a deeper breath and end up almost hyperventilating!!
I only just made it through my 10 minutes and my next presentation is 15!!
I may just turn blue and pass out.
Anyway, I think everyone in my group did really well and we now just wait for our results.
The frustrating thing is that we will probably have finished and presented our next presentation before we find out about this one.
Anyway, I chilled this afternoon. Did a little shop and watched some of ‘The Crown’ that I’ve decided to binge watch.
As I sit here, I have literally just found out that Matt Smith has been cast in a ‘key’ role in Star Wars episode 9.
My mind has gone into overdrive.
Who is he playing?
As a Brit, my mind has immediately flown to First Order/Imperial.
Could Hux be getting a rival?
Could Supreme Leader Ren be promoting someone over Hux?
Then my husband came up with an idea and one I think fans would love.
Considering where they are thinking about taking any future films, could he possibly be getting cast as Grand Admiral Thrawn?
We have yet to see a Grand Admiral in this trilogy but unless they are going to do some major playing around with timelines, Matt is just too young and Thrawn is out of his timeline considering Star Wars Rebels.
Interestingly, with the 2012 acquisition of Lucasfilm by Disney, most of the licensed Star Wars novels and comics produced since the originating 1977 film Star Wars were rebranded as Star Wars Legends and declared non-canon to the franchise in April 2014.
Meaning that anything with Thrawn in it was now ‘not’ Canon and open to interpretation in anything new and Thrawn has long been considered by Lucasfilm when developing projects like Star Wars Rebels.
How he would be written into episode 9 is still a mystery to me, but the thought of Matt bringing him to life with the blue skin and flaming red eyes against the white uniform is quite a delicious thought.
Anyway, probably got that one completely wrong.
Watch this space.
But with that news and the leaked images from the set this week, we are now well and truly into ‘speculation’ about what to expect in episode 9.
Only 16 months to go!!
