Am I the only one who shed a tear when the Luke reveal happened? That goddamn Binary Sunset crescendo, I tell you. Gets me every time.

Rocket knights and laser swords. It's not complicated.

Amazing that Jon Favreau is the only person at Disney who understands Star Wars. Defenestrate Kennedy and give him anything he wants to take over for her.

Put some respek on Dave Filoni's name

As far as tying this into the Last trilogy they are gonna have to tell a huge important story that will ultimately lead Luke to the place he was TLJ for it to make sense. I have no idea what could happen to Luke to make him be the person Rian made him.

#REBOOT

Declaring the sequel trilogy non-canonical is the only way forward.

The rise of the First Order creates more and more tension as they try to find him, putting his loved ones in danger.

Then the disaster with his revamped academy... rather than giving in to his fear for the lives of the ones he loves like Anakin did, he removes himself from danger. It makes total sense to me, even without any of the new Disney stuff needing to lead us there.

I’m honestly hoping they continue to treat the Mandalorian as a jumping-off point for all of their other IP.

It was already a great intro to Ahsoka Tano’s spin-off, Boba Fett’s spin-off, and likely some Thrawn stuff. They’ll get a soft reset next season where you don’t have to worry about the fate of the Child, and they can now focus on Din Djarin dealing with home-world drama, while the action keeps touching on the remnants of the Empire moving towards becoming the First Order.

I just don’t see how that takes Luke to “ The Jedi Must End”. Luke is one of the twin stars over Tattooine. He was always hopeful. Always heroic. Always willing to do what had to be done even doing Dark Side shit to save his dad. I can see being chased by the FO into hiding but not an absolute abandonment of all that made him Luke Skywalker.

I don't think Boba is getting his own series but either 3 or 4 episodes leading into s3 of the mandalorian or a small mini series like Obi Wan is getting

How did Disney fuck up Star Wars so bad? I was on board through the Force Awakens, although I acknowledged it could have been better and was heavy on fan service (There are worse ways to start a trilogy). The hard left during Last Jedi was just awful though, and killing off Snoke left a huge power gap and no clear antagonist for Rey to face in the final movie...absolute worst thing you can do with no established clear villain going into the final movie of a trilogy. Even Back to the Future uses a Tannen when they go back to the fucking past! If the plan was to always turn Kylo, which it had to be given the direction of the first two movies, they absolutely needed a clear villain like Snoke for Rey going into the last movie. People can criticize Abrams all they want for bringing back Palpatine, but it was the only option given the screw ups from the previous movie. There should have been one director for all three movies, or at least a clear script already in place. Dumb, dumb moves.

The one shining beacon has been Mandalorian, and maybe Rogue One. Favreau and Filoni know what they're doing, they really should be in charge of it all.

I watch way to much nerd YouTube, and that seems to be the rumor. Doing kind of a MCU alternate universe type of thing.

Edit: Didn't see Lax post the exact same thing.

Maybe they could do a world between worlds thing and just throw it in the trash.

On the advice of Star Wars nerd-friends of mine, I watched Clone Wars. I skimmed the episodes, so I'd say I caught about 2/3 of the total. I mainly focused on the Mandalore/Maul/Ahsoka storylines. Boy, those last four episodes of season 7 were fantastic.

Now I'm doing the same with Rebels. Really entertaining stuff.

I've been watching clone wars in the chronological order. I have maybe 10-15 episodes left. Good stuff. Certainly some episodes here and there that should have been cut, but overall very enjoyable. They also make the prequels more palatable.

Anytime I stumbled upon an episode with Jar Jar in it, I just noped right out.

Haha pretty much. The driod ones are hard to stomach too. There's that two episode arc in what must be like season 5 that's all droids and a tiny alien general. Woof. I remember one was called a sunny day in the void or something. I almost didn't make it through those ones.

I’d recommend watching all of them except the JarJar episodes. There is a ton of good world building in both Clone Wars and Rebels you will miss out on if you skip too much.

There are a couple of weird filler arcs here and there that don’t add much and are out of place but overall the do add to the overall world building.

Building on that MCU thing, I read something the other day about Thrawn essentially being the Thanos.

All (or most) of the current Star Wars projects will intersect in Avengers-type fashion. I haven't read the new novels that are canon, but I'm assuming Thrawn plays a large role in the remnants of the Empire becoming the First Order out in the unknown regions...

I could see an over-arching story where some characters are actively fighting against him to try and stop him, while others are simply affected by what he's doing. In the end, maybe they defeat him while experiencing some heartbreak along the way, but the damage is done as the First Order is shown gathering in a post-credits somewhere, leading into a reboot of the new trilogy.

While I would happily sign up for that plan, I'd much rather them build towards Thrawn being the main bad guy of the actual trilogy. How much better are the sequels is you substitute Snoke and Hux with Thrawn??

This should have been a no-brainer and why KK chose not to use him but instead reuse Palpatine (and whatever Snoke was) will forever piss me off. Thrawn is a massive villian but his backstory shows him to be a very flawed antihero IMO. Very much like Thanos.

Im hearing they are looking at using Mads Mikkelson's brother Lars (voices him in Rebels) to be live action in Asohka series. I love him. He was great in the Cumberbatch Sherlock Holmes series.

I liked him a lot in House of Cards, too. Pulled off a very convincing "Russian Dictator" lol

Thrawn most definitely wouldn’t have had that entire ridiculous armada controlled by a single antenna. JFC that was so fucking bad.
