Obi-Wan Kenobi writer Stuart Beattie explains how his original take on the Star Wars story finale ended on a decidedly more tragic note.

This article contains spoilers for Obi-Wan Kenobi, now streaming on Disney+.

Obi Wan Kenobi Writer Stuart Beattie recently revealed the tragic original ending he envisioned for the titular Jedi Master’s star wars spin off.

Beattie, who is credited for his contributions to the project when it was still a movie and not the Disney+ series it would eventually become, discussed his unused finale in an interview with The Direct. “I thought to myself, ‘How [Reva] do you know that thing in a mechanical suit that everyone calls Darth Vader is the guy who killed her or tried to kill her? “, He said. “So it was kind of Obi-Wan who had revealed this secret to her and this revelation makes her say, ‘Oh my god, I’ve been wrong this whole time.'”

“And she goes there and saves Kenobi by sacrificing herself, saying to Vader, ‘I killed Kenobi,'” Beattie continued. “And then Vader killed her, [with her] knowing that Vader would kill her. So that kind of ended his arc. So just a little bit different than she was, yes, absolutely, the Inquisitor hunting Kenobi all along and driven by her own personal demons.” Unlike Beattie’s version of the story, the Obi Wan Kenobi the series ends with Reva still very much alive.

Beattie also recently confirmed that the Obi Wan Kenobi film was actually intended to be part of a “complete trilogy” of star wars movies before Lucasfilm decided to rework the production into a TV show. The scribe added that each entry in his unmade trilogy would have charted a different stage in Obi-Wan’s evolution into the character who ultimately sacrifices himself for Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: A New Hope. “[I]It’s a pretty sudden thing, going into a fight with a guy, seeing Luke and saying, “I’m going to die. You know, for me, that took foresight. It required prior acceptance that it was going to happen,” he said.

Beattie went on to explain that the disappointing business performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story was what motivated Lucasfilm to rethink plans for a Obi Wan Kenobi trilogy. Describing himself as “absolutely devastated” at the time, Beattie nonetheless expressed satisfaction that a version of his original story was still on screen, which featured characters such as Reva that he had personally created.

Although the Obi Wan Kenobi trilogy never materialized, Lucasfilm isn’t ruling out the possibility that the TV series could return for at least one more season. Studio president Kathleen Kennedy recently said that Obi Wan Kenobi Season 2 could happen if there’s enough fan interest to warrant it.

Neman: Confessions of a departing food writer | Food and cooking https://ramiroledesma.com/neman-confessions-of-a-departing-food-writer-food-and-cooking/ Mon, 27 Jun 2022 17:00:00 +0000 https://ramiroledesma.com/neman-confessions-of-a-departing-food-writer-food-and-cooking/ And now the end is near, and so I face the final curtain.

And now the end is near, and so I face the final curtain.

After more than eight years in the best job a guy could ever have, I’m quitting my job as food editor for the Post-Dispatch. Let the wailing and wailing begin.

And then let them stop. I’m going, but I’m not going far. I think it’s about 40 feet, more or less. If I lean forward in my chair, I can see where my new desk will be.

But I will write no more about food. I will write about retail for the business section. My column will be broadcast every Sunday.

Because I will always be working for the Post-Dispatch, I feel a little weird writing a goodbye column. Farewell columns are for people who are actually leaving. They are complacent, but they help avoid leaving friends, colleagues and readers.

Besides, the farewell columns irritate me. They are rote, clichéd and predictable.

People also read…

  • Cardinals Diary: Former regular shortstop DeJong was ‘Wally Pipped’
  • The standings remain the same, but change for the Cardinals after the defeat against the Brewers
  • Greitens says violent people-hunting video was meant to be humorous
  • Bayer at the end of its rope in Roundup cases, says St. Louis lawyer
  • Hochman: Jackson Holliday, son of Cardinals great Matt, could be first draft pick
  • Missouri dad to throw first pitch at Cardinals game in final tribute to his son
  • Greitens resigned in disgrace. Here’s why he’s leading the U.S. Senate race from Missouri.

  • Missouri effort to draft independent candidate for U.S. Senate focusing on former U.S. attorney
  • BenFred: Cardinals core have aged better than Jason Heyward and his Cubs

They invariably begin with the announcement of a retirement or the acceptance of a new position. Then they cut to an audience thanking the editors who have been so helpful and supportive throughout the writer’s time at the paper (i.e. you, Amy Bertrand). And then they cut to a private joke shared with a co-worker the readers don’t know and care about (am I right, Val? Cheese sticks forever!).

And finally, inevitably, they end with the same mundane sentiment: “But above all else, I’m going to miss you, the readers. You’ve all made this journey so fulfilling for me.”

There is only one acceptable exception. Fans of the 1953 Audrey Hepburn/Gregory Peck film “Roman Holiday” can also say, “I will treasure my visit here in memory for as long as I live.”

But I’m not going to write that kind of farewell column. Instead, I would present a collection of observations and impressions from my career as a food writer:

• If you’re having trouble making friends, try telling your neighbors and colleagues that you’re a food writer. Then periodically bring them homemade pastries or appetizers and tell them they’re leftovers from a story you wrote. It worked for me.

• Do you want to know what I won’t miss? I won’t miss Thanksgiving. I have been a food writer here and elsewhere for 12 years. That means I’ve written about Thanksgiving 12 times.

But there are only so many things you can write about for Thanksgiving: basically just turkey, side dishes, and desserts. I ran out of fresh ideas for Thanksgiving about nine years ago.

• If you’re hosting a dinner party, serve homemade flatbread as a starter or as a bread with the meal. Spread the top with butter when it comes out of the oven and sprinkle it with Maldon salt or fleur de sel.

I got this idea from Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria, which serves its oven-baked pizza crust for its bread service. We had a few friends over for dinner recently, and the flatbread—no toppings, just the bread itself—was the hit of the meal.

• “Cheese sticks forever!” is not an actual private joke I have with anyone. I couldn’t think of a real private joke. It’s a bit sad.

• As much as I will fail to write about food, my waistline is already rejoicing. Starting with Halloween and ending after New Years, I usually put on 12-15 lbs, mostly because of the cooking I do for my stories. Then I spend the next 10 months trying to get it off.

• Homemade foods are definitely better than store-bought in almost all cases. And whoever you’re cooking for will appreciate it. If you only cook for yourself, think of it as a treat. You deserve it.

That’s it. It’s 12 years of accumulated wisdom in food writing. I will miss writing about it.

But above all, I will miss you, the readers. You have all made this journey so fulfilling for me. I will cherish my visit here in memory for as long as I live.

Jeffrey Escoffier

Jeffrey Escoffier, longtime activist, author of books on gay identity and creator of public health campaigns, has died aged 79.

Escoffier died May 20 in Brooklyn, NY, but his death was just reported on Saturday by The New York Times. The cause was complications from a fall, his family told the newspaper.

Escoffier, who grew up in New York, first made his mark as an activist in Philadelphia, where he moved in 1970 to pursue graduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania. He became president of the Philadelphia chapter of the Gay Activists Alliance, and in 1972 he founded The gay alternative, published by the organization. Eleven years later, in San Francisco, he launched another publication, Out/Look: National Lesbian and Gay Quarterly. He and his staff at Outlook organized the OutWrite conference for LGBTQ+ writers.

He has written numerous essays on gay identity and the factors that shape it. They have been collected in volumes comprising Homo American: community and perversity and Sex, society and the making of pornography: the pornographic object of knowledge.

“Jeffrey Escoffier embodied the radical queer public intellectual,” said author and professor Whitney Strub. Time.

Returning to New York in the 1990s, Escoffier became Deputy Director of the Office of Gay and Lesbian Health of the city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene in 1995. His duties included overseeing education campaigns on AIDS. In 1999, he was appointed director of health media and marketing for the entire department. In this position, he campaigned on a variety of public health issues, such as HIV, asthma, rat infestation, smoking, and West Nile virus. He also helped bring awareness of the Affordable Care Act to New Yorkers.

Escoffier was “always able to see a new side to a difficult problem or situation – and often bring out the humor in it,” said Dr. Thomas Frieden, the city’s former health commissioner. Time. A former Associate Health Commissioner, Sandra Mullin, called him ‘our Renaissance man’ and said his work ‘has helped save lives’. “He was a queer man who uplifted the people on his team,” she noted in an email to the newspaper.

Esoffier’s survivors include three sisters.

COVID and all that, so we used to call each other from time to time.

I knew his physical strength wasn’t what it used to be… so on this occasion, just a few months ago, I called around six o’clock in the evening.

“Dervla? »

“Oh wait a minute…” and she hung up. Oh my God, I thought maybe this time wasn’t the best. A minute passed. After.

“OK, I had a beer; What’s up?”

It was Dervla, alert and brilliant, until the end.

Described by chairman Michael D Higgins as “Ireland’s most famous travel writer”, we first met in 1986.

After cycling in India and crossing the Andes and more, she decided to make her first visit to this strange part of her own island – the north – for A Place Apart, one of the 26 books she has written over a lifetime of adventures.

And needless to say, to seek out that odd corner, she wanted to include a twelfth.

As it happened, I was working at the Cairn Lodge Youth Club at the time, and one of the lodges met there early, before rushing off to Shaftesbury Square in Belfast.

“Could my friend Dervla Murphy join you for the day?” I asked the lodge master for one more temperance lodge.

“Sure no problem.”

“She’s from the Republic.”

“Yes No problem.”

So she came down, at 7:30 a.m., with her famous brogue, a southerner beyond disguise.

“Hello,” she said as she entered the hall.

“Ah, Dervla”, (temperance yes, but) “Would you like a little bit? »

She was, in her own words, “a tough old boot.” She traveled light, lamenting the excesses of the worst minority in the world, the rich, and always conversing with the simple people.

Admittedly, its mechanical abilities were few, if and when the bike had a problem. But, as the old travel adage goes, “you only hear good stories,” and Dervla has always succeeded.

I only have one regret. Before leaving for the Balkans, she asked me if I had any advice.

“But how could I have anything to say to someone so experienced?” I thought. So it didn’t occur to me to tell him about the horrible tunnels in Bosnia, some of them miles long, all without light because of the war.

And she had the terrible experience of being inside, in pitch black silence, when everything was interrupted by the deafening echoes of a deafening truck, its blinding lights, its muffled smoke, its driver totally oblivious to a lone cyclist cowering against the side wall.

And I have hope. Dervla was always so full of encouragement, and for me anyway, she had one more wish for one of her great loves: “Yes”, she said, “go cycling through the Tibet”.

Dervla Murphy, of Lismore, Co Waterford, died aged 90 on May 22. She is survived by her daughter Rachel and her grandchildren.

Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard has made significant progress on his highly anticipated sequel to John Woo’s 1997 action blockbuster, Front/Off.

Speaking to Empire magazine, Wingard discussed the screenwriting effort with frequent collaborator Simon Barrett as a direct sequel to the original film, which starred John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. Despite the death of Cage’s character Castor Troy at the end of the original film, Wingard made it clear that Cage would be the centerpiece of the new story. “He’s just having such a great time,” Wingard said. “…A few years ago the studio might have wanted a young, up-and-coming actor or something. Now Nicolas Cage is once again one of Hollywood’s hottest actors.”

Having paid homage to Woo’s work in past films such as The guest, Wingard feels some pressure to live up to the success of what he considers a favorite movie. “I think we really got it,” Wingard said. “It was probably the the toughest script we’ve ever worked on, for many reasons. There’s so much pressure to want to make sure he lives up to the legacy of this project. But with every draft, you have these things click into place, and you’re like, ‘A-ha! It’s really what Front/Off is!”


Released in 1997, the original Front/Off starred John Travolta as FBI agent Sean Archer, who tracks down and captures the murderer of his son, Nicolas Cage’s Castor Troy. When Archer learns that a bomb has been planted in Los Angeles with only Troy’s brother knowing its exact location, he volunteers for an experimental face transplant program that swaps his face with Troy’s to impersonate him. him in brother’s prison. Meanwhile, the real Troy wakes up from his coma and takes on Archer’s face to infiltrate his family life. The film grossed $245 million worldwide and won two MTV Movie Awards for Best Action Sequence and Best On-Screen Duo.

Front/Off was a monumental action film for the 90s. It marked director Woo’s first blockbuster hit in America, having made a name for himself in Hong Kong with action classics such as once a thief and hard boiled. Additionally, the film’s success added to Travolta’s comeback in the ’90s and built Cage’s reputation as a big-name action star.

Paramount originally announced a reboot of Front/Off in 2019 with Oren Uziel as screenwriter and Neal Moritz producing alongside David Permut. When Wingard and Barrett took over the project in 2021, they announced it would be a direct sequel. “I would never re-imagine or redo Front/Off. It’s a perfect action movie. Simon Barret and I are writing a straight SEQUEL,” Wingard said.


The untitled Front/Off the sequel has no release date.

The Miami Dolphins have made a number of impactful moves this offseason that have put their roster in a great place to be competitive for the 2022 season and beyond.

However, Bleacher Report’s Ian Wharton suggests the Dolphins should do one more, sending defensive back Eric Rowe to the Tennessee Titans. In return, Wharton thinks Miami could receive a fifth-round pick.

Rowe’s safety on the roster has been an oft-discussed topic for fans and pundits alike this offseason. Although he has the ability to play both safety and cornerback, Rowe’s role will likely be one of depth in 2022 with Jevon Holland and Brandon Jones moving up to starting safeties at the start of the year. last.

If the veteran defensive back were to be traded, the Dolphins would save the team $4.55 million and only incur $525,000 in dead money. General manager Chris Grier has structured many of the new contracts he just handed out to have lower cap hits in the first year, so they’d probably like to carry over as much as possible from this season to the next.

At the same time, losing Rowe would force Holland, Jones, or one of the deep safeties to step in and cover tight ends more frequently. Keeping Rowe on the roster and paying him his $5.075 million this year might be worth it to allow their safeties to play the roles they did in 2021.

A Washington Post reporter living in East Hampton wished boils on a CNN writer who lambasted her for saying everyone she interacted with wore an N95 mask.

Hannah Selinger and Rebecca Bodenheimer argued for everyone to see on Saturday over Bodenheimer’s suggestion that Selinger’s continued addiction to medical-grade face masks smacks of irrational and privileged behavior.

Selinger, who splits her time between chic East Hampton and Boxford, Massachusetts, then launched into a multi-tweet attack on Bodenheimer.

And she even suggested that her online nemesis deserved to develop pain points for her sassiness.

The spat began with a series of tweets from Bodenheimer that read, “If you come up here and say *everyone* you interact with is wearing an N95, I have no choice but to assume you are interacting with a very small subset of people – mostly middle/upper class and working from home – and you have most things delivered to your home by service workers.

Bodenheimer, who lives in Oakland, continued, “That’s just not how the vast majority of Americans are living at this point in the pandemic. You’re free to mask for as long as you want, but what you won’t do is claim to represent the beliefs of a diverse sample of the population.

She concluded her screed by saying, “And the reason I know this is because I live in one of the most risk-averse cities in the country, but also one of the most racially diverse. and economical. I live next door to the hood and my spouse is an essential worker who works *in* the hood. I see a wide range of beliefs here.

Hannah Selinger quickly got into a cyber battle with Bodenheimer after realizing the tweets were about her

The spat was further heated when Bodenheimer admitted she was referring to Selinger in her original thread – but defended herself by saying she didn’t directly name Bodenheimer.

But Selinger – who writes for the Washington Post, New York Times and Wall Street Journal – quickly lashed Bodenheimer, a freelancer who has worked for CNN, Vice, Politico and The Cut, with a barrage of invective.

She quoted Bodenheimer’s original tweet thread and wrote, “Rebecca tweets about me, because she’s anti-masking.”

Bodenheimer admitted that his original missive did indeed refer to Selinger.

She defended herself by saying she didn’t name Selinger or call her directly, and that she was just “making an observation.”

But that cut the ice a bit with Selinger, who said, “The tweet was about me!” Of course you called me! don’t be ridiculous. That’s passive-aggressive bullshit.

‘Either you say what you say (inaccurately, according to our conversation) and own it, and the repercussions, or you don’t.

“You know your tweet was inaccurate.”

Bodenheimer responded again to challenge Selinger’s claims that she was a coward, insisting, “I was trying not to harass you.”

And she added fuel to the fire by digging deeper into Selinger’s COVID safety measures, writing, “I know a lot of people aren’t as risk averse as you are and you shouldn’t assume that your beliefs extend to everyone.”

This further inflamed Selinger, who then asked if Bodenheimer should continue tweeting, given that she had followers who continued to “harass” Selinger.

Bodenheimer eventually left the cyber-battle, telling Selinger it was “over”.

This prompted Selinger to respond with a gif of a woman laughing hysterically.

The feud seemed to come to an end when Bodenheimer said she didn't want to discuss it anymore, prompting Selinger to send her a gif of a cackling woman.

Selinger then brought the feud full circle with a tweet that didn’t mention anyone directly – but appeared to wish Bodenheimer a painful illness.

She wrote: “So weird when seemingly rational people go anti-mask or anti-vaxx. It’s always the ones with weak social followings and a bit heavy too, amirite? It’s hard to know what to wish for these people. Maybe boils?

The fracas began earlier in the day after Selinger responded to an earlier tweet from Bodenheimer that masks ultimately didn’t make a difference unless they were high quality.

Selinger wrote, “People pretty much only wear N95s at this point. A warrant in certain federal circumstances is essential. You can’t expect people to do the right thing on, say, an airplane. They won’t.

The unseemly fight between the two writers is emblematic of seemingly endless tensions over COVID safety measures.

It’s also the latest example of well-paid journalists going public online on issues that many inflation-ridden Americans would consider insignificant.

COVID masking and vaccination mandates have been largely lifted in the United States as deaths from the virus decline, even as new variants continue to infect and re-infect thousands of Americans.

It's part of the exchange that sparked the fight between the two women and led to Bodenheimer posting his series of tweets about privileged mask wearers.

Meanwhile, Washington Post staffer Felicia Sonmez was fired from her job earlier this month after days of raging with fellow male colleague Dave Wiegel after he retweeted a sexist joke saying all women were bisexual or bipolar.

Wiegel apologized, but Sonmez continued to speak out against his behavior and called for disciplinary action against the reporter who defended him.

Other august publications have also been rocked by staffers publicly attacking on Twitter – often over social justice issues.

That prompted them to warn staff to keep disputes private, with The New York Times also advising its reporters that they can stay off Twitter altogether, if they choose.

People who edit text on their iPhone, iPad or Mac are probably already familiar with iA Writer. It’s long been a great option for doing just that, and now a big new update adds support for something that’s becoming a must-have for power users’ text-editing apps in the App Store – wikilinks.

The new update, which is now in the App Store, includes a number of improvements across the board. But arguably the biggest addition here is support for wiki links which makes it easier for users to create links between documents in a similar way to how a link would work on a web page. People can link to one master document from another, for example, something that can be invaluable when organizing your thoughts, research notes, or other text.

With wikilink support built into iA Writer, developer Information Architects has included an auto-complete feature that will automatically suggest files from your library. Type “[[” is enough to begin the process and iA Writer will start to autocomplete anything you type, so long as it can find a corresponding file to link to.

If you’re someone who uses wikilinks in other apps you’re already more than familiar with why they can be so important and they’re hugely popular among users of other apps like Obsidian specifically. Wikilink support takes one of the best Mac text editing experiences and turns it into a whole new beast and iA Writer includes other features that make wikilinking as easy as possible — beyond autocomplete — including keyboard shortcuts and more.

Ia Writer Wikilinks On IphoneSource: Information Architects

  • Wikilinks make it easy to connect, browse, and rediscover your writing
  • A [[wikilink]]is a link from one text file to another
  • To create a wiki link, just type[[andthenameofthefileyouwouldliketolink[[andthenameofthefileyouwouldliketolink[[etlenomdufichierquevoussouhaitezlier[[andthenameofthefileyouwouldliketolink
  • Autocomplete suggests files from your library
  • Open the linked file using the Open Link button in the keyboard bar, ⌘-click or ⌘⏎
  • If the file does not exist, it will be automatically created and ready to be entered

Other improvements in this update include improvements to the overall editing experience, added iPad Split View support, and more. You can read all about the changes in the release notes and those who have already installed iA Writer will find the update awaiting them now. Anyone can grab iA Writer now with the iPhone and iPad app priced at $49.99 and the Mac version being a separate $49.99 purchase. However, the update is free for existing users.
