  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.
  2. Welcome to the new boards! Details here!

    No thanks. And I really, really doubt they will do that. We'll see, though.

    Very, very good news. Options:
    1) Casual life in the Empire's age (GL idea) + 1313 game
    2) 20 years span after the defeat of the Empire. Would be nice to know more about Luke's maverick life, but it would imply an actor other than the young Mark Hamill. Mara Jade? Boba?
    3) Old Republic. Why not. Now nobody clearly knows what did happened in the past and what did not. That series would take a liberty to clarify a dozen things.

    Maybe but I'm thinking it might not air until 2020. If I remember correctly there aren't any Star Wars movies coming out that year.

    They need to open the service with some shows, so I think it is likely a 2019 premiere.

    Also he has likely been on board this show for at least 3 or so months.

    Yeah they aren't going to be asking people to subscribe to a service that only has stuff on it they have already seen. They are going to use brand new content to sell it.

    Could be interesting, but it has to have some heft. One problem with films set in that era is that we know how it ends. But it could still be very exciting. Personally, I think series oriented around a rebel spy could be very interesting.

    This is my preference. I think either this show, or Filoni's new show will do that. But after the Rebels finale, I think the new show is likely to focus on something else. But please, Jeebus, no Mara Jade. Or if we get Mara Jade, can we reimagine her as something as other than a teenage boy's fantasy?

    OKay, I admit it. This idea bores me to death. Don't care. Can't even develop a GAF for the game, and I enjoyed KOTR and KOTR II. I kind of doubt they will risk much on a timeline 90% of people will get confused over, but if they give it a go, I thin Favreau could probably make me get interested.

    As this is more than likely the same show as the one announced last year, merging threads.

    NOTE: This will be the official thread for this series going forward.

    oh, I wonder if Disney are using George's old scripts for Star Wars: Underworld?

    Why would 90% of people be confused by the concept of ancient history in the Star Wars galaxy?

    The Old Republic is the only period I have much interest left in canon. Every other period has been severely limited by bad comics and cartoons and ST media.

    If there are Jedi in this I have a feeling they won’t be full time characters, rather they’ll pop up from time to time.

    How does this make any sense? Another Star franchise went for the overkill in the mid-90s and it paid very dearly for that just a few short years later, really. Why do we need a live action tv show? How does Star Wars fit well into that medium?

    Live action Star Wars is grand, operatic, cinematic, it's big action and big sfx effects. Why do we need this series when we have these movies coming out. This show will dilute excitement for upcoming films... that' my feeling.

    Of late we have been watching events within about 6 or 7 years of A New Hope. We still have a big 12 or 13 years of largely unexplored material, chiefly Obi Wan!

    Mara Jade...(scratching head). With round eyes several months ago I witnessed a massive outrage due to pending extinction of Skywalkers. I myself can cope with the idea, but there is really a lot of members of the community who are not. That's why Mara Jade or whoever. We have to have us a child for the sake of the bloodline. Reylo shipping is dead-end, I guess.
