Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Wired.com: “Cantina Talk: Is Star Wars Going on Hiatus? Only Kinda”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Let's just cut to the Kessel Run: Star Wars Celebration took place this past weekend in Chicago and completely opened the floodgates of Star Wars news. Here's everything that came pouring out.

Yes, the official title and teaser trailer for the last episode in the Skywalker Saga are finally here, and now we know that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will feature the following things:

It's all very exciting and confounding, with even the title getting a lot of people speculating about what's to come. Don't ask the cast, though; they only learned what the title was a week before everyone else, according to Daisy Ridley.

The Real Deal: As if the Rise of Skywalker title and trailer weren't enough for fans attending Star Wars Celebration, the Sunday morning panel for upcoming Disney+ series The Mandalorian brought stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, and Carl Weathers on stage, as well as writer/showrunner Jon Favreau and writer/director Dave Filoni.

For those attending the panel in person, however, there was a lot more than those streaming the event at home got to see—namely, the first footage from the show itself. Three distinct videos were shared: A behind-the-scenes reel shown to Disney investors earlier in the week, a sizzle reel of action from the series as a whole (including appearances from a number of bounty hunters familiar to fans from The Empire Strikes Back), and a finished scene from the show's first episode in which Carl Weathers' character Greef Carga—head of a bounty hunter guild—offers a secretive job to Pascal's Mandalorian, only for the latter to discover that it's a job from the Empire, wanting the Mando (as he's called by those working on the show; no, really) to find a piece of "cargo" that turns out to be a living person. As far as a "thank you" gift to fans for showing up to the panel go, it was hard to beat, although the fans who weren't in the room were more than a little mad at what they missed out on. The show will debut when Disney+ launches on November 12.
