  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.

    A period that is between the end of the Old Republic and TPM.

    Referenced a few times in recant Canon.

    If the rumors turn out to be true and this is the next new era to be explored, would you like to see an animated series in this period?

    The only Jedi that could carry over from films/TCW is Yoda.

    I think the next animated series will be closer to RoTJ. The next film saga will be the "High Republic"

    Perhaps there are two animated series in development. One post RoTJ and another in some other era.

    There are two rumored shows in development: one is definitely animated (Rebels Sequel) and one is unknown (Doctor Aphra)
    The latter could really touch on the High Republic time period and help connect the two eras

    I think The high Republic era in animation probaly won't come until 2022. They are working on a Rebels sequel and the DR. Aphra series that is hinted at being animated. Maybe there are someone working on a High Republic Era animated show, but it would be the early stages by now, maybe writers form porject luminous would be involved with this more so they they ever could with the movies or live action shows. Have comic book writers such as Soule write an episode. or novel writer as Claudia Gray.

    Dr. Aphra should be live-action TV or film. I honestly don't understand why they would do an animated version for her. She should be able to be thoroughly subversive.

    I think it will be animated so that we could see characters like Luke Skywalker and legacy characters after the return of the jedi.

    So 400 years before TPM? Darth Plagueis?[face_thinking] His age is not established in the canon. He is younger in Legends "Between 147 and 120 BBY" but that could be changed. Or Darth Tenebrous? Tenebrous was brought into canon as mere mention already. Not sure about Bith lifespan in new canon though and if he even is a Bith in the new canon..... but I love the idea of him being"a Bith Sith" that's just hilarious.:p

    Sounds like a boring and dull premise.

    "Dull & boring" from a time period with nothing else to go on whatsoever yet.

    Yep, seems like fair thinking.

    The one thing we know about the High Republic era does not make it sound boring. It was a time of increased Jedi activity in the galaxy.

    ^ I Agree if done well this could be the needed fresh direction for SW.

    The fandom is made up of two kinds of people. Those who think a blank canvass is dull and boring, and those who think a blank canvass is brimming with creative potential.

    The opposite of "dull and boring" will be the early adventures of millenia-lifespanned Yarael Poof.

    I don't think it's helpful to frame these things in binary terms -- not that there isn't some truth to it. However, it's distortive of how complex people are, and we all need to start avoiding this.

    In fact, I'm not sure that many people really find a blank slate boring, as you put it; they are just concerned that KK will continue to put people like JJ, Ron Howard, or Kasdan in charge of "dreaming" the material up. And while Rian is creative in his talent for subversion, that doesn't mean he's a great world inventor. He could be, or maybe he would just do a lot of subversion of classic tropes, which could be just as annoying as interesting.

    Why some people might assume the High Republic could be dull is simply because they assume it's a time of peace. "High" makes it sound like a fine time to be in the Republic, and it logically makes one wonder where the conflict will come from.

    However, although the name doesn't imply drama, it seems the Jedi of this period may have been expansionist or colonialist in their policy, which is perfect for conflict.

    Why would a time of peace have to be "dull", though?

    Depends on what they do with it. EpI was galactic peace other than a small quarrel on one world, they got plenty out of that.

    It's a time of peace yess, but it's also a time of expansion for the jedi and the high republic. and they would probaly fight the unknown threaths out the like the grysk, other alien races maybe a new version of the vong.

    Exactly. This is a fantastically layered fictional world set in a massive galaxy. It can be as interesting or as not interesting as you want to make it. And even if a story is set in the real world of Muscatine, Iowa, it can be made interesting by how it’s presented. There’s potential in every place and era.

    Depends on whether they're going to handle it at least half as well as they did the Mandalorian series or rinse and repeat the mess they made of the ST and Resistance.

    Rewriting canon after ditching the EU only to scavenge from the EU and then claim there was nothing they could use to build their franchise I really don't have any faith in their plans at this point.

    Please keep hoping for me!
