Oh, so it's okay for you to make a film set between two of the main movies with entirely different main characters, but it's not okay for Disney to do the same? mini/sunnies
Sorry, I just had to point that out, as I remembered that Rogue One didn't really appeal to you mini/lol
My problems with Rogue One (which I still haven't seen, but look forward to watching soon) is that 1. It's part of Disney's new Star Wars canon, which I utterly despise and 2. It's an official feature film made by the company.
I've come to expect films made about others outside of the skywalker family from fanfilms, and maybe even some Lucasfilm video games and novels, but from a feature film? At best it makes it SO much harder to explain Star Wars canon to non Star Wars fans, and at worst it's just a blatant cash grab. This film will be absolutely free.
Although, you definitely deserve a pat on the back, Lego Figure Productions, for calling me out on that.
What happened to Johnny Thunder, Sliders, or Batman Continues? D:
After a house fire on new years eve of 2014/2015, all projects that I had been working on were put on hold indefinitely. Recently, having been looking back through these older projects, I realized that not a lot of them could be filmed with the Lego that I currently have. Johnny Thunder and Sliders, right from the start, would require at least a few bricklink orders, as would the Alpha Team and Pirates projects I'd remained rather secretive about.
Batman continues, on the other hand, is still in production - only, I won't be heading it anymore...

I was going to ask the same thing. I was really looking forward to your Burton-style Batman film!
I quietly posted an update a few days ago on the Batman Continues topic, which I'll repost here:
Several delays and conflicts on the exact direction the film should take, myself and The Logan Productions have decided to make two separate Batman films - his a bit closer to the Burtonverse as seen in Batman Returns, mine a bit more of an homage to what Batman Forever would have been without the deleted scenes - still a bit brighter overall, but a bit more methodical and logic-centered than the final result.
That being said, my side of this project is currently being put on hiatus indefinitely. I've got some other brickfilms I want to work on in the meantime - most of which may end up taking me the rest of the year to complete. Don't worry, though. This project isn't dead. I do still intend to work on/finish it in the future. mini/smile
As I understand it, The Login Productions is continuing on with his film. I may even ask him to start posting updates on that topic, just so everyone looking forward to it can stay up to date. My project will resume either after the summer contest at earliest, after the next THAC at latest.
Overall, my brickfilm output for the past 3 years has been less than what I'd been shooting for. With unavoidable delays, cancellations, and changes in schedule, I've been playing with multiple options for better workflow in lieu of semi-retiring.
As of right now, a Star Wars fanfilm seems like not only the easiest for me to do (I've got loads of classic and newer Star Wars sets), but also the most engaging to me right now.
Besides, the point of this hobby is to have fun. And doing any project other than Star Wars at the moment would seem like work over play to me. And, when it comes to writing/filming/editing films, I think that the lack of interest on my part would slip through, hurting the overall quality of the project.
Johnny Thunder, Sliders, Batman Continues, however, are not dead. I have so many plans on what to do, and find the subjects interesting enough that, I don't think I could ever outright cancel them. Just don't hold your breath.
