    Well, it's basically official! Hopefully it spans a bunch of eras- good chance of High Republic shorts, but I'd love some prequel-era ones as well as some about Luke and/or his students.

    sounds like a Disney+ version of those Youtube shorts they used to make.

    I hope they'll be closer in length to Visions episodes than Forces of Destiny or even longer. I'm also waiting to see the animation style.

    The Old Republic characters would be cool, but I definitely would have to wait and see the animation style before deciding to watch or not.

    I was very much hoping for, well, Tales of the Jedi. But if this really is an anthology show, nothing's stopping them from featuring some original TOTJ characters in an episode or two.

    I wonder if these will be canon like Forces of Destiny, or “creative interpretations” of the Star Wars universe like Visions.

    I really hope they're canon. We need more canon depictions of Jedi. Especially if the show's jumping around in the timeline.

    Yeah, Visions is great but I want more canon stories about Jedi. I truly do hope they jump to the ancient past. Give me Nomi Sunrider and Ulic-Qel Droma dammit! :p

    I would like to see them return to the roots and go for an ancient Bronze Age fantasy aesthetic

    Well, I'm potentially excited, but I'm going to need more info.
    Yes. Canon depictions of classic TOTJ characters would be what pushes me into excitement territory.

    Non-canon, kiddie, 10 minute shorts of the adventures of Jedi Padawan Raan-Dom, and her trusty sidekick droid Q-T, or her cuddly pet Porg, will be a hard pass. I'd rather have a lightsaber lobotomy.

    Agreed on everything there, @Pro Scoundrel, except...
    ...this would be great.

    Would love to see original TOTJ, even in short animations. Here, I'm thinking storytelling à la "Lord of the Rings" flashbacks.

    In any case, sounds interesting

    Not really what I was hoping for either. However, I do hope they're canon and, more importantly, they move around the timeline.

    Agreed. Everyone needs a pet Porg!

    I mean, considering the logo is practically the same as the one for the original comic series, if a few of these stories aren't set in the Old Republic era, then, yeah, that would stink.

    Sounds exciting. I think anthologies can be pretty satisfying if they have long arcs from time to time, or even returning characters.

    So is this sort of filling a placeholder role for Visions to return next year?
