The inevitable watering down of the franchise was my biggest concern when Disney purchased the rights to SW. I didn't think they could do it anymore anymore than they already have.

I wouldn't be surprised if we see an Early Adventures of Jar Jar series at some time down the road. I don't even want to consider the possibility of a live action Ezra at some point.

I just want it to be a series of Jedi missions before the Clone Wars. Kind of like Star Trek.

This could either kick ass or suck major d1ck. I'm thinking the latter...

Nah. I'd rather there be no Jedi. They should focus on something else for once.

Yeah I'm with u Thor, I wouldn't want them to cheapen lightsaber duels either. I say keep them special, like having Ezra shoot stun orbs out of his hilt, or the grand inquisitor spinning his over his head and flying away.

Sry bud, but I think Disney already delved down that "cheapened" rabbit hole.

Some regular non-force users would be a good start.

Potential Show Ideas:

1. How I Became the Senate

2. Sand, Lightsabers, and Deathsticks

3. The Adventures of Meesa

4. One and a Half Droids

5. The Counts of Serrenno

6. The Big "Do It" Theory

7. A Jedi's Guide to Treason

8. Just Another Happy Landing

UCanShootMyNova
@Thor: There wouldn't be lightsaber duels. I mean, I doubt most pre TCW Jedi missions involved engaging another lightsaber wielding opponent.

How's that?

Cause it looks more real?

But truthfully the animated ones are certainly choreographed better.

Not really the strongest of cases, but then I'm more partial to animated than live action for certain shows, SW being one of them...movies aside.

Prequel era is absolutely off limits with Disney. Rebels is finishing already. Battlefront II and the Aftermath books have taken up the OT-ST space quite considerably. TLJ and IX is finishing off the ST era permanently. We already have Kenobi and Han Solo standalones, as well as the Vader comics, filling in the OT era.

Given all of that. Any Canon timeline is already overly booked. It's either set after the ST or it's TOR related.

It being TOR is not nearly as farfetched as one might think. They've already given EAWare special precedence for continuing their era, they also went the extra step of making sure the Chiss expansion aligns with the Disney Canon Story Group.

That's hardly overwhelming evidence but it is a possibility. The same is true for the Johnson trilogy.

DarthAnt66
I feel it's most likely an Underworld show with Boba Fett and the like.

godemperortrump
Yay now they can butcher TOR characters.

AncientPower
That was cancelled and shelved though.

DarthAnt66
It was, but I imagine they'll do a similar theme. A TOR show seems like it'd be far too expensive.

What's there to butcher?

Zentrex
There are so many things to wonder about this show. So many things which can go wrong.

What will the genre be? Comedy? Action? Horror? What will it focus on? The main ideas here seem to be either Jedi, or the crime world. But there are other options, you could make it about the Sith, or politics, or some other type of life we've yet to see in the star wars universe.

I honestly think there are many, many direction this show can be taken in, and it would be very interesting if it was taken in all of them. You know, have one episode be about a certain set of characters, another about another set of characters, maybe follow a few consistent chains of characters and settings.

I'd really like to see something new. Like, in Canot Bight (The novel and the scene in the movie), we're shown a side of star wars we were never shown before. Maybe it'll be about some random people between the Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. It all seems very interesting to me.

The problem I have with bringing legends into canon is that having this new canon gives us the opportunity to do something completely different, and reshape the entire look of the Star Wars expanded universe, and so I would be a little disappointed if they just made the old republic the same as it was in legends. I want to see something new, a new kind of history. Maybe the Republic doesn't have its origins that far back. Maybe the Jedi weren't part of the Republic then. I just want to see something different.

Who would want a show about Sith? Most wouldn't. It may make the Sith, less monster-y.

Darth Thor
They are not holding back on the budget.

$100 million for a 10episode season. So should look very cinematic like Star Trek Discovery does.

Is also based shortly after ROTJ:

Ive also heard its based on Mandalore. If true thats Quite fitting given series creator Favreau voiced Pre-Vizsla.

Tzeentch
As long as it's not plucky underdogs fighting The Man I don't give a shit what it's about.

But this is Disney so it will almost certainly be about plucky underdogs fighting The Man.

victreebelvictr
I would hope that they release more on the prime jedi

Galan007
Hmm.

Voicing Pre Vizsla must have really left an impact with Favreau. Can't say the initial premise here really peaks my interest, but we'll see.

Darth Thor
Sorry Galan think these need merging:

Galan007
*Merged.

Darth Thor
Wow we have a useful mod now.

As for this, Im guessing it means they have scrapped the Boba Fett movie idea. As it would essentially end up being the same kind of thing.

Galan007
Yeah, a Boba Fett film seems like it would be completely redundant with this project in the works.

Dunno, I'll wait for more information to be released about this series, but given the era it is set in, my initial thought is that I really don't care. Of all the stories they could have gone with they choose a lone Mandalorian in a space-western. Meh.

NTJack0
Definitely wasn't interested in more Mando crap, oh well.

Yeah not sold on the time period. But I do have faith in Favreaus creative talent. So its mostly his name that has me intrigued.

Galan007
Same.


Also, here is Favreau's official Twitter announcement:

I hated how the mandalorians were treated in Rebels.

Don't even get me started, this all started in TCW with pacifying them! Also now looking bad on it...did anyone find the combat kinda....dead in the shows?

Maybe more Rebels with the blaster fights, but they seemed really...not all that interesting.

juggernaut74
So does this confirm that Bobba dies in ROTJ? I can't see them wasting Bobbas story on TV.

Looks nice.

Trocity
But it`s the new Star Wars, so it`ll be shit.

TheIndyJedi
Reminds off the concept art for Boba Fett from the cancelled Star Wars 1313 game

Darth Thor
Nice

Galan007
Also looks like Filoni will be one of the executive producers for this.

Zenwolf

Galan007
*Since we now have an official name/premise for this series and a rough release date, I'm going to update this thread's title and move it to the proper forum.

He is on the list of directors for the first season I believe. Which was always an obvious move for him. Hes been directing and producing on animation for long enough.

It's something I've been wondering too. Why is there so much outrage for Disney Star Wars? I know there's a fair share of people who think it's bad, but Star Wars has produced some of the worst content ever in the past. It never sparked anything on this level before. Star Wars has endured through so much, so why not this?
And it's not possible that Disney just happens to pool their money and most successful talents into work that just turns out to be garbage.

Maybe it's just to do with how the fanbase talks about star wars now. Maybe it's to do with the "political" direction Kathleen Kennedy has taken. I don't know. It seems there's something else going on than just the content being "bad". Because the bad content of Star Wars used to be for only fans of Star Wars. The bad content of Star Wars is now for everyone, and that makes them fans of Star Wars.

The main stuff is being blasted with shit and political agendas.

That's the difference. You used to have to read a shitty novel or a bad comic to find truly awful shit. Now you can watch a movie to find comparable things. The bad is thrown in your face a little bit more.

Obviously not all the canon is bad. But it doesn't help when people find the main attraction shit.

I guess it's a mix of what you're saying and what Mob said. I mean I'm not saying all the current Disney stuff is bad, I certainly liked Vader's first comic series and a few issues of the main Marvel SW series. But so far? That's really been it..the concepts they're bringing over from Legends certainly haven't been enticing either.

I haven't exactly followed what KK has done, but I have heard about what she's said, about what JJ and Johnson said and it's just.....ugh.
