    wasn't this one of the episodes that was supposedly set after The Rise of Skywalker?

    Yes, but I think it would work very well as an Old Republic story. There aren't any familar designs to tie it to the films, and the Sith really ought to be extinct after TRoS.

    It might be set post-TROS, but it might also be an Old Republic story. The Jedi are all but exinct, and the Sith are still around, so I'm more inclined to believe it's thousands of years before the Saga. We know from the High Republic novels that the Jedi have been purged before.

    Then again, it's not canon, so it can be set at any time I suppose.
    I liked it. Not the best, but pretty good.

    I really liked this one, a jaded, tea drinking droid on break time hehe brilliant! I really liked the twist and The Waiting for Godot feel. The changing light sabres were also cool representing sides

    I think of all the short episodes, this one truly feels like a pilot to a show. It was soo good. I think this felt more like in old republic thenin post TROS story. the ship at the end looks like old ship design, and makes sense in old time to be difficult to find kyber crystals as many worlds probaly scavanged looking for more and more kyber.

    my head canon is that this is an alternate universe where there were no Death Stars or Luke and Leia. With the force out of balance, dark siders, such as the ones in this animation, rose to challenge Sidious and the Sith Empire fragmented anyway, leading to an era of warfare.

    I rather think this might be old republic, when sith and jedi were many.

    This might have been my favorite. There were so many great elements, and it hit that core ideal of Star Wars with a young intrepid hero rising to the challenge of facing darkness. I had high hopes from IG, and they certainly delivered.

    I really enjoyed this one! That temple design is probably one of my favorite across all Star Wars media. Just a gorgeous. And the story of the young daughter of a lightsaber smith rising to become a Jedi herself just felt Star Wars. Great episode! 8/10!

    The more I think about this one, the more I like it actually. Funny how that works.

    I know for one thing my theories were going back and forth about who Juro was. was he really a Sith who was pretending to be a Jedi? I wasn't expecting the prospective Jedi to actually be Sith. That threw me for a loop.

    I think this works best if it’s set in the Old Republic era during the height of the Sith Empire. The Jedi have been nearly exterminated and with them knowledge of how to forge lightsabers has nearly been lost. The Jedi who remain are younger ones with only a bare minimum of training. Most are masterless now.

    Didn't it seem that the sith also lost the knowledge? Also loved the one sith proved to be jedi like Mace with purpble lightsabers Two seniors and two junior jedi. And yeah most likley Old Republic when the sith empire ruled the galaxy.

    I keep hearing people say that The Ninth Jedi is set after the Saga, but I haven't seen anything corroborating this. The one that seemed the most obviously set after The Rise of Skywalker was The Duel because it had the First Order Troopers. The fact there seems to still be Sith and quite a lot of them would suggest it is set in the past, not the future.

    I agree that this feels like it would fit right into The Old Republic period, especially the Thousand Year Darkness as George Lucas described it.

    It felt like being well after the Saga to me.
    A time when the Jedi of old are long gone, and someone decides to resurrect the tradition.

    This one kind of gave me a Rogue One meets the comics when that small group of remaining Jedi try to destroy Vader after Order 66.

    this could be set Centuries or Millennia after The sequel trilogy. which means that at some point the Sith were reestablished by someone and the cycle started all over again similar to the Star Wars Legacy comics.

    Not so good as Duel or Bride, but parsecs better than Rhapsody and Twins, IMO. The story held my interest, but
    I wish they'd come up with a more original ending than just fighting it out with sabers

    Felt like I was watching a movie for this one. Those 20 minutes felt like an hour. 9/10.
