Their tagline better be "We'll see you in hell!".

Disney can't help themselves falling into the same trap as old EU writers. Wookie jedi!

Oh, and does that cover also confirm another female lead in a Star Wars story?

That Light of the Jedi cover is the first time i've ever looked at star wars and thought high fantasy. I haven't read anything EU since the mid 90s, but if they can use SW to tickle me a Cosmere itch then I'm jumping back in.

This basically confirms the High Republic movie, right?

Dave chapelle and Jim breuer should have cameos if it's really called the high republic

That looks promising. Glad to hear they still are keeping the Wild West/frontier locations

Seems like it. This looks to be the new era for the next number of years, closing the book on the Resistance Era as the primary focus for new stories.

And, this is exactly the type of overarching planning that we all want.

Wrong emote!

Ugh. It pains me to think how much more thought and planning they're putting into this that they DIDN'T put into the f-ing Skywalker Saga.

This.


I'm having a hard time getting excited about this. I'm not sure if this necessarily means this will be the next round of movies, but I was really looking forward to TKOTOR.

If they do this right they can easily set up a Knight of the Old Republic movie all based on new cannon. I'm pumped to see how this turns out.

Seeing all those young people brainstorming makes me worry that Lucasfilm has received all of my 63,000 letters volunteering to work there for free and is practicing age discrimination against me.

Star Wars Facts saying that the stories for Luminous won't cross o we into film or TV. Not sure the source but they're usually on the money. Might even be in the press release that I haven't read yet.

Considering I didn't watch the video when I posted my obviously tongue in cheek comment, can you avoid being a stick in the mud and take f-ing joke?

Good for Ron Howard. Jake Lloyd's had a tough life after Star Wars, probably a lot of it came from that kind of hate.

Interesting part will be what this means for Kathleen Kennedy.

I've called that she will be gone (either let go or she "decides" to move on) within 6 months of TROS leaving theaters.

that said, she does still have 18 months (give or take) on her current contract). Disney may just slow play it until closer to its expiration. With the movies "done" for now and the next wave slowly ramping up, she will just no be that involved with stuff going forward.

Interesting note: TROS did pass RO globally, but is still trailing domestic by $18 MM. Pretty much not going to pass it on this release.

Yeah, agreed. They may allow her to serve her term without drama.

I did read some things about here "taking an early retirement" but I didn't post them here because I didn't know how reliable of sources they were.

So, who knows. Only reason I made that call is because of how it seems from the outside things were bungled pretty badly. She does have a pretty awesome resume to her name, so I can see Disney and her agreeing to ride out on a sunset kind of deal.

This. It's not the kid's fault the movie was bad.

We'll see how good any of those authors involved with The High Republic are.

many of the names have been involved with prior SW novels or comics, and most have been mediocre to date. Not bad, just not noteworthy.

Whether that was because they were shoehorned into and around the current movies or due to the skills of the author is up to your interpretation.
