  • Bring back Kyle Katarn, dammit. He was one of the best parts of 90s EU

    That was the Empire's greatest evil. OSHA violations.
  • Okay, we have the Republic/Old Republic.  There's the New Republic.  There's the Galactic Empire, the Imperial Remnant (which is a crappy name that makes me think of the Bolshevik/Menshevik scheme).  Thrawn had his Empire of the Hand, or whatever.

    What the heck is a High Republic?  Is this some nation above the galactic plain?

    It's like a normal Republic, but with a lot of drugs.
  • Blaming toxic fandom before release. Sounds like they got a stinker on their hands. Not bad enough for overblown sexism or anti-semitism allegations though, so I might check it out.

    It's when Obi Wan tried to get off the junk but kept on hallucinating young padawan learners on the ceiling.

    Yeah. Isn't it a bit early to already start tossing around blame for why your property isn't doing great? The Mandolorian has been out a while, the 2nd season just ended, it was already popular... so what if the season 2 finale got people hyped? If it's a good show that people like, then it's a good show that people like. If you put out another piece of good content then people can like that too.

    Heck, it's certainly not like Disney is only going to ever have one piece of Star Wars media out at any given time.

    Finally! More stories about glitterstim!
  • It is a period of civil war.

    Favreau shows, striking

    with an enthralled fanbase,

    have won their first victory

    against the evil LucasFilm

    Story Group ...

  • And Favreau is in charge of the only Star Wars fans seem to care about. There are no consultations with Lucasfilm needed in the future - he and Filoni are in the driver's seat.

    Filoni is responsible for the best SW stuff of the last 15 years.  He's should be the Feige of SW.
  • Wait, someone's actually in charge of that trainwreck?

    They've got their heads rammed up their own backsides, convinced that they're making high art, serious important art that should be regarded with almost religious divinity. Are you not in awe of them and their magnificent design?

    Well, no. Because it turns out that what people want is popcorn entertainment that still remembers how cool and fun space opera can be. A little grungy and rough around the edges. Doesn't take itself too seriously. Knows how and when to be kick-ass.

    It's the ages old problem: high art vs crap that sells. And the crap that sells is what people are buying.

    Disney seems to be following the money. In this case that's no bad thing.
  • This is high level bullshiat made up by shiatty YouTubers desperate for clicks.  One of them is named "Doomcock" and wears a Dr Doom mask for christ sake. The other one is Grace Randolph, the same lady who made up the rumor that Pedro Pascal walked off the set of The Mandalorian.  Stop giving these people the time of day.  It's like greenlighting a panhandler ranting about the end of days on a street corner.

    The Story Group doesn't develop stories, they only help maintain and drive continuity.  Pablo Hidalgo, one of the lead story group guys is literally writing a reference book for The Mandalorian.  Half of these guys have been working with Dave since he started at Lucasfilm.

    And Light of the Jedi (the first High Republic book) is #1 on the NYT, so I wouldn't get all excited that Mando is the only thing Star Wars fans care about.

    If you're actually interested, the High Republic is just an era of the Galactic Republic where everything was sunshines and rainbows.  Like the way people think about post WW2 america (minus the cold war and horrific racism).
  • Oh sure, because Filoni should have told several hundred other people about this so they could make changes in other properties.

    Yes, they'd all keep the surprise, right?
  • "maintains canon"

    Pffft. Fanboys who think anyone should care about "cAnOn" can f*ck right off.


    /given the other series coming out, I'd think the Mandalorian guys would be the first ones hoping Mando isn't the only thing the fans care about

    Pre-pre-prequel. Yeah, I give up as well.
  • So what was their new storyline? The Gungans created "Life Day" and a splinter group of Ewoks wanted to stop it because it spreads cheer and happiness throughout the galaxy?

    Some degree of canon needs to be maintained though. If everyone just goes running around doing whatever, then the entire property will turn in a huge mess. The consequences of that being that people will no longer know what they can expect from the story, they won't know according to which rules the galaxy works, or even which people should or should not be in it.

    You cannot make a movie about Fred, the best friend of Luke Skywalker who was always at his side since Luke was 8. Why? Because according to all previous media Fred does not exist. The same goes for stuff like the hyperspace ramming that happened in The Last Jedi. That should never have happened because it opens up huge cans of worms going both forward and backwards.
  • Not really subs. Mando is mostly garbage.

    /Got any more of them fetch quests?
    //You help me, I help you
    ///Yeah this shiat unbelievably good.... Not
  • Insisting The Mandalorian is good is on par with insisting the election is rigged.

    Minus the consequences.

    The delusions tho.. They're the same.
  • I accept this as 100% true, because no one ever just goes on the internet and lies. Especially about Star Wars.
  • Drearyx: Not really subs. Mando is mostly garbage.

    /Got any more of them fetch quests?
    //You help me, I help you
    ///Yeah this shiat unbelievably good.... Not


    Your irrelevant opinion has no bearing on a show's actual popularity. So sorry it bothers you when people like what you don't.
