Opinion: Hondo Ohnaka and Azmorigan "The Dream Team"

0 comments
By Ciaran Duggan,

I can hear the piercingly loud screams now:

"AZMORIGAN AND HONDO - THE DREAM TEAM? YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS!"

Just here me out for a moment. 

Dave Filoni and his crew have managed to successfully create two comedic icons for the hit animated TV series, Star Wars Rebels. The chemistry between the characters is comparable to the rapport seen between Han Solo and Lando Calrissian. The tangible tension between the characters is for all to see and that is what makes this week's Star Wars Rebels episode, "The Wynkahthu Job", in my opinion, very humorous.

The hiring and subsequent departure of Josh Trank from a Star Wars stand alone film is one of the odder moments of the new era of Lucasfilm.  The Chronicle director was announced as the director of the second stand alone film in June 2014, he then left the project to pursue other "original creative opportunities" in May 2015.  Throw in a cancelled appearance at Star Wars Celebration and some crazy rumors about his time filming Fantastic Four for Fox, and nobody is really sure what exactly happened there.
