    Seems risky to drop all this content at once. Certain shows are sure to hit but ones like this one could bomb but still have a lasting impact on cannon. I guess if SWs has taught us anything it’s the art of retconning, but still...

    The title might be a reference to irl Army Rangers, so this could be a Band of Brothers-esque story about NR special forces or shock troopers. More insight into the NR military is just what the lore needs imo.

    Rangers of the New Republic is the only thing they didn't explain at all on that stage. I'm pretty sure we already know the characters involved, and I'd bet good money we're going to hear the 'ranger' moniker thrown around before the end of Mando S2.

    The recurring X-wing pilot is a given. I'm thinking Boba, Cara, and Greef (others, too) notice they make a good team in the Mando S2 finale. Boba's time on Tattoine made him reflect, and now he wants to use his skills for 'good'. Cara's just down to kill Imps. The X-Wing pilot points them all towards intelligence leads the New Republic doesn't have the resources to investigate themselves.

    I was hoping for a republic band of brothers like show and the rangers can be the one. Of course there might be woman rangers too.

    Maybe the cassian andor tv show can lead to a spin off for rebel alliance special op tv show itself.

    Cassian andor is a spy show, but maybe it can also be in action tv show like James Bond or 24.

    Rogue squadron since it going to be movie would suit better for a tv series. I do believe the movie will still be good but if this movie is successful maybe we get the tv show we crave for.

    It would be nice to get a live action clone wars tv show based on the actor who played jango fett In know his name, I just spell it ,and it would also be for the other actor who played the clones sitting at the table eating with each other in Star Wars episode 2 Attack of the clones and have a backstory for him too.

    I know that they are the same clones as of now and before but it would hurt to to make them different for the overall plot canon.

    If they don’t make the clones into two separate host and only stick with Jango fett, I won’t complain, but I do want a clone wars live action tv series for the republic commando. Dave filoni and Jon favreau would be perfect for it.

    Personally, I actually wouldn't be surprised if we haven't met the titular rangers yet.

    Cara Dune is a marshal of a specific planet rather than a ranger, and the reoccuring X-Wing pilots are all played by people more directors than actors, so I doubt they would be the stars of a show. But the last episode was setting up for the heroes to go to a republic prison, and the Republic do seem to be investigating Gideon, so it is not completely outside the realm of possibility that we will get a disguised pilot and have Din interact with some rangers, like how Ahoska got her disguised pilot episode.

    They announced that the 3 shows that will be under Favreau and Filoni will lead to a climactic event that will almost certainly be covered in all these shows when they converge. I think they will do an amazing job at it.

    I don't think they have set a timeframe for Roque Squadron yet (and yes, I know you already corrected yourself that it's a movie)

    If the show takes place after the sequel trilogy then we get to hopefully see Dennis Lawson return as Wedge and possibly even Oscar Issac.Though I would prefer it take place during the original trilogy.I think after Empire strikes back but before return of the Jedi would be good.

    I'm really looking forward to Avengers of the New Republic. :)

    It's not the most hype-y story announced but...Go go Lucasfilm!

    I would like this to be about New Republic Special Forces, but I have a feeling its going to be about Cara & Co. in the Outer Rim.

    It almost feels like they are gonna be separating creative teams to each individual periods. like filoni and favreau will be making shows around the Mando period. and thats probably the reason why these shows are moving into production much faster than others.

    Cara Dune couldn't carry a show herself but throw in Mayfeld and the pilots with some new characters and I think this might be the ticket. Just speculation based on the announcement and The Mandalorian.

    In Favreau and Filoni I trust, but also, one of the things that was most appealing to me about The Mandalorian is that it was its own thing. This being a spinoff that then folds back into the core narrative seems to kind of go against the grain of the original intent of what the series was, but we'll see. I'm definitely open to all of it. It just... kind of makes me have to readjust my perception of The Mandalorian and the things I've been particularly enjoying about it.

    I like the idea of this. You can get an exploration and real feel for how the New Republic is doing in it's first few years. Mando can give bits of that but it doesn't need it for his story whereas that political landscape can act as the entire backdrop of this show. How decentralised did they go, how fast did they get rid of their military, how did they decide to police the GFFA? It has to be a bit tricky trying to set up some sort of democratic playing field after near on 20 years of an authoritarian dictatorship. There's vast swathes of the galaxy outside of New Republic influence so plenty of playground for Rangers to go hunting imp remnants and crime lords and slavers and other such scum and villainy.

    What would also be cool to see from the legends material being borrowed for a reboot in the post return of the jedi is crimson empire for a tv show.

    A cade skywalker legacy for a far post rise of skywalker would be cool or a brand new Star Wars time that takes places 1000 years after Return of the jedi, knights of the new republic tv shows and movies.

    With the Mandalorian, RoTNR, and Ashoka all taking place in the same time frame.....what are the odds of eventually seeing Luke?
