    I'll check it out, but I find it hard to get excited for short films.

    An anthology?

    Exciting is hardly the word I would use.

    But I’ll watch it anyway.

    An anthology with ambition, as in ambition big enough to include "this is basically my pitch for the characters and events of a live action movie if you want to make it," would be great.

    An anthology meant to be more modest, small scale, "don't you dare step on the future toes of someone making a live action movie, so all this cool stuff is verbotten," would be less exciting.

    I think any time animation going forward will be just as important as live action, with Dave Filoni involved. They will go big if they want to tell stories that way. The OT gang in animation would be welcome.

    I hope this will be similar to Visions in scope, if not style. I'd rather see something that takes advantage of the anthology format than throwaway adventures of film/TV characters or teasers for future products.

    Because I'm a nerd, I want it to be canon.

    Live Action is overrated.

    I'd actually agree, but live action is where LFL puts more prestige and budget nowadays; I want the ambition of "this should be something you want to bring even more of a budget and focus too" on Tales.

    Some of the most exciting narrative ideas can come from shorter forms. Ideas that can be developed into longer forms if successful.

    I've seen two articles about it, and both featured an image of Ahsoka (from TCW). Not sure if that's just to be generic like, well these are Tales of the Jedi, and Ahsoka was a Jedi; or if there's any hint that she may play a role in an episode or two.

    I'm quite a big fan of the anthology format, which is why I loved The Clone Wars and Forces of Destiny. I just hope it has a budget closer to the former. Anyways, here's some stories I'd like to see.

    • High Republic stories involving Yoda and Dooku.
    • Prequel-era stories involving Dooku's fall to the dark side and Anakin's knighting.
    • OT-era stories revolving around Yoda, Obi-Wan and Ahsoka's exile.
    • ST-era stories revolving around Luke's Jedi and Ben's training.
    • Maybe some KOTOR-inspired stuff set aeons ago?

    If they did feature Ahsoka's exile, I wonder if they might adopt a little from the novel.

    I think he meant Ahsoka's exile during OT.

    That's what I meant. The novel takes place during the OT; at least pre-Rebels OT.

    I’m disappointed that it’s not going to be an Old Republic era series, that really has the most potential and freedom in storytelling.

    Still with it being an anthology in current eras, I’m hoping to see prequel era pre clone wars, High Republic, and also Luke’s Academy.

    I know. That's the only "exile" I'd recall she's involved in. Years later when she's working with the Resistance, she's not really in exile anymore up until she meets up with Hera's gang. And then we see the time-portal where Ezra escapes while Ahsoka returns to Malachor. For all we know, she was living as a Kenobi-esque hermit on Malachor through the end of the OT; up until we see her reuniting with Sabine in the epilogue.

    I think an anthology series in SW is pretty important. As we see from the examples above, all sorts of important moments can be covered with such a structure.

    I would love tales of the Sith to be a recurring feature.
