  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.

Live Action Would you be up for a Han Solo TV show that continues the events of the movie?

    The gangs in Star Wars, are actually large militias and paramilitary organizations that care often capable of battling and winning against Clones and CIS. They often have their own private armies or can simply hire mercenary armies.

    I think Saw and his partisans would've played a big part in the conflict with the Crimson Dawn cause of Enfys Nest. I think some years would've passed too since they were setting up a younger Jyn Erso with Nest's gang after Savareen.

    A kinda issue I had with Solo in the movie is that he's always a jackass and a bad investment and never honors any contract and outfit he's in cept when he goes "good", then he's as straight as an arrow. He turns on everyone in the damn movie basically, from traitor to the Empire cause he wants to get rich and driven by a need to steal(for some reason Qi'ra on the back burner whenever he wants to make a score as the movie struggled to get its story straight was it Qi'ra or just becoming rich), from dumping the loot on Vandor which really put them up against the firing squad to eventually betraying Crimson Dawn and dumping Beckett on Savareen by handing over everything to Enfys cause she swayed him to the cause as at heart he's a good guy playing bad guy. Just before a ANH, we know he dumps the cargo again which leads to the bounty on his head by Jabba during the OT.

    One thing I kinda liked about the movie, was that you can feel they tried making it out like the Force was guiding things(they did the same thing in Rogue One ), and its really interesting how all these movie characters are interconnected. In Solo's origin lies Darth Maul.

    Han says a couple of times that he wanted to make money so he could buy a ship and fly back to Corellia to find Qi’ra.

    This wouldn’t surprise me at all. What was originally a film centered around a Mos Eisley-driven syndicate battle, will be extended into a TV show. Frankly, the more I hear about it, the more I feel that Disney+ not only saved the Anthology stories, but ensured that they’ll end up being a lot better and more satisfying than they would have been as films.

    I almost wish they waited for disney plus and made rouge one into a tv show, like they originally wanted.

    No, Rogue One is a perfect film as is. Not least because of how tight it is as an ANH prequel, and how powerful the crew’s deaths all are after only a 2 hour plus film. And we’re getting a sequel TV show for it anyway, which can go much deeper into that time period. Rogue One has made me a huge fan of that particular time period, and now I’m thrilled about the Cassian show. There’s a built-in audience already.

    I do think it would have been great to start Solo off as a TV show, though. Even though I really like that film too.

    Yeah Rouge one works really well as a prequel. Solo would be better as a show yes, seems weird he does all this in just a few days. hopefully we get this gangster show that deals with the underword, maybe Solo and Chewie and Lando can cameo.

    With the potentila of a criminal underwold series with Maul and Qira as main leads. It would be perfect time to develop other criminal families like the pykes and the black sun. I know the black sun was very heavily featured in legends comics and Maul used to hunt them down and kill them, and it's hinted at in TCW with him knowing of them and their base. He and his brother kills it's leadership and use them with his war against his master and the jedi. I know a very huge character from black sun that could be used as Maul's main nemesis and that Prince Xixor. His specie and his gang is canon. In legends he had a vendetta against Vader for his crimes against his people, just change Vader to Maul and have this arc. I know alot of people hoping for his return to Canon and this show would be perfect for this. The ones Maul killed might have been family members of his.

    That could certainly get alot more Maul on our screen, if there is a Crimson Dawn series.

    Manabyte has been wrong in the past but Jordan is usually very reliable and has proven himself with the Kenobi leak, I'm still cautious to say if this is legit or not but if it is true then...

    I'd love to see a series about Crimson Dawn/Qi'ra/Enfys Nest. They could even crossover with the Cassian Andor series.

    I'd also love to see Alden return as Han. I thought he did a fantastic job but caught in a perfect storm of bad buzz -- a spinoff nobody wanted that was weakly promoted, playing a legendary character played by a legendary movie star, coming off a divisive TLJ. Also, a TV series would have given audiences more time to accept him as Young Han. It wasn't until AOTC that I actually bought Ewan as Young Obi-Wan.

    Everybody is forgetting about the original Star Wars gangster who is also active during this time period and also has a history with Maul: Jabba the Hutt

    Manabyte is a reliable dude, if he says it's happening then I think it's a reasonable chance.

    Wegotthiscovered is a garbage clickbait site that just passes off rumours as insider info.

    This weird era we are entering where Star Wars becomes a collection short run 8 episode Disney+ shows.

    I'm kind of okay with that.

    Plus each show will have multiple seasons as well. Except I think the Obi Wan show might just have only one season.

    Is everybody forgetting that? I’m pretty sure Jabba’s been discussed a bunch of times in the context of a possible Solo sequel...

    Like when Manabyte seriously claimed that Jar Jar would appear in Rogue One?;)

    Or Rey meeting the force ghosts on Ahch-To in TLJ?

    The dude's even admitted to making stuff up in the past apparently, I wouldn't pay attention to this at all if it weren't for Jordan commenting on it as well.

    I love it if we see the leaders of all crime organisations. Maul, Jabba, Pyke leader, black sun leader and crymora leader.

    I'm honestly incredibly okay with this. Honestly just want more live action content and if the shows are quality than I say the more the merrier.
