Mirroring a thread in LACWAC, let's discuss the potential benefits or problems the mysterious new animated series may have with the established EU. So far all we know is that it is set in a period untouched by on-screen Star Wars, and that Dave Filoni may be involved. What would you guys like to see, when should it be set, and how might it affect the EU (for better or for worse)? If it is set during the Old Republic Era, I'm fine with pretty much anything, as long as it is set either before Tales of the Jedi: Knights of the Old Republic or after TOR. The period from Exar Kun through TOR is pretty well fleshed out. Beyond that, I don't mind a few minor continuity hiccups. As it stands now, the first Sith to use "Darth" keeps getting pushed back in the timeline anyways, so new ancient Darths are fine by me. If it is set during the Dark Times, which I think is the best idea, there isn't a whole lot they could step on. For one, they already have many models and voice actors they can continue to use. Depending on when they would set it (I assume soon after ROTS), there are a lot of story possibilities involving surviving Jedi warned off by the Jedi Beacon, the change from Clone Troopers to Stormtroopers, the rise of Darth Vader, and the continuation of peoples' liberties being stripped away. I'd really like to see how the Emperor really sways the majority of the galaxy into thinking he is a great leader, rather than the evil tyrant as the Rebellion knows him. It would also be cool if the series could bookend Droids by showing how C-3PO and R2-D2 originally were separated from Captain Antilles and eventually were reunited with him. And certainly if Ahsoka survives beyond Order 66, this seems like the perfect twist to have her confronted by Darth Vader. Now that would be a scene I would enjoy very much. The only problem I see would be if they decided to tell a new version of Han Solo's backstory. After the last 3 parts of the Ahsoka storyline, I think this type of series would be ideal. If it is set during the Post-ROTJ era, then I'm hopeful that they will adapt or leave it open enough for a bulk of the EU stories to fit. A lot of it depends on what Episode VII will be like though. This is why I'm thinking this may not even happen. There are plenty of people wanting to do a new Star Trek series right now, but Paramount & CBS don't want any series to conflict or contradict the new movies as JJ Abrams continues to make them. Granted, Disney may not think the same way, but it's hard to know what Disney is thinking these days. If it were this era though, and it did mostly follow the EU, there's still room for stories to be told. They could set it a little ways out, maybe after the Rebellion retakes Coruscant and after Luke starts the Jedi Praxeum. Heck, they could even kick it off with an adaptation of the Thrawn Trilogy. I'd enjoy seeing a dual focus on the earliest new Jedi as well as how the greater galaxy is affected by the change from Empire to New Republic. Even if the EU is abandoned in favor of a new continuity for VII, they could still take the best of the EU and rework it in a series like this to fit the new continuity.
