    I'm sure even in a series that focuses on non-force users such as criminals, the force is such a marketable thing that it's Likley a Jedi (or an ex one) will appear. Which is a strong point for dark times, Jedi left overs (before Rebels). Your very limited when it comes to force users in a post RoTJ show. With the Inquisitors existing, just another reason for dark times. Also not being limited to Rebels rating can present Inperial oppression/evil/danger better. Seeing an Inquisitor go all out against normal men could come to pass.

    I used to think a, like, CW style Young Jedi Knights show would have made a lot of sense, but I get a different feel from Luke's new canon academy than from the old EU Yavin IV praxeum.

    Maybe it would make sense for a post-Sequel Trilogy Jedi Order? Who knows what will happen after IX.

    Yeah, I’d be for an Inferno Squad show. Or some post ROTJ show. In addition to Iden and the other members of inferno Squad, we could potentially see quite a lot of other new characters. Rae Sloane, Norra Wexley, Mister Bones, Sinjir, Jas Emari, Aphra, Hera, maybe even some of the characters from Bloodline. Of course new characters would be neat too.

    You could probably save a lot of costs if all you have to show is three seasons of bodies rotting, though.

    Sounds like a SW version of Walking Dead

    I know that live action tends to carry a more premium TV, adult-oriented connotation, but I don’t see any reason why Star Wars TV shouldn’t stay animated. As long as it’s written at an adult level, staying in animation opens up so many possibilities that can’t be done (or can’t be done perfectly) in live action. Especially if we want a show that can jump between eras without requiring extensive recasting.

    A new animated show can still happen as well. I don’t see this replacing animation.

    Are you saying that TCW & Rebels were written at an adult level?

    I just hope it's not another series set between RotS and ANH. I little diversity would be nice.

    It's clear that the ST was only the springboard for what Disney had in mind. The old EU is going to look tiny compared to everything we eventually get under canon.

    Ah, but my straw is longer, so I drink your milkshake.

    Playing aside, I like the sound of this.
