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.
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.
