Side-trilogy. Won't be involved with the main saga. Still cool news and Johnson is a great director. It'll be interesting to see what a new non-Skywalker trilogy looks like in this day and age.

I'll watch as many good movies as they make.  Until one of these new ones stinks, I won't worry much about how many they are planning on and potentially burning out.

It's got the pedigree. Marvel has done extremely well for 17 years. No reason Disney won't do the same for SW. They've been very protective of it and the behind the scenes changes have proved that. Hiring talent such as Johnson bodes well.

What this says to me is that Disney is extremely happy with The Last Jedi. Probably gonna be pretty, pretty good.

 

But I'm a big fan of Rian Johnson and this allows him to continue to make the biggest of movies while also giving us original work from him. Best of both worlds.

I'm intrigued. The galaxy is a big sandbox.

 

I would guess it would take place much earlier, allowing potential sequels to what they are doing now and also freeing it from "this is Chewbacca's grandnephew" or whatever attempted fan service.

 

I dunno, how about a film with some primordial Sith/Jedi conflict. Or something with a bunch of gangster Hutts.

As long as it's good, I'm thrilled we'll keep getting Star Wars movies.

So....Wiess and Benioff hurried GOT to its ending so they could move onto Star Wars...now they're leaving SW to move onto Netflix projects...

 

These guys have bitten off more than they can chew and seem like control freaks.

 

JJ Abrams has his hand in so much stuff, doesn't have to write or direct everything he does, seems like W&B should have done similar things to avoid the hurried mess of an ending for GOT.

I am positive that Benioff and Weiss got a serious nudge out the door from Disney on this one... I'm sure them "leaving" was an amicable way to save face.

Maybe, but that's not a good look for Disney. They've kicked out a lot of talent hired for SW projects these last few years.

Have only seen Episode 4, 5, 6, and 1. Haven't watched any of them in probably 15 years. 

 

I'm usually late to the party, as in I binged GOT when the last season started. Same with Breaking Bad. 

 

With Episode 9 coming, what order should I watch these in? I've heard there are a lot of opinions on this.

Agreed. Maybe watch Rogue One if you have time.

I kind of wish they'd give us a more concrete idea of when it takes place. The way the imperials are still all around but not an organized force makes the timing a little wishy washy. I get the impression it's in between Endor and the newest trilogy. But I suppose it could be at the end of the Clone War and the siege of Mandalor but before the original trilogy. But the fact that the younger Mandalorian's don't even know who the Jedi are or what the force is makes it seem like a LOT more time passed in between the trilogies, but since Luke, Leia and Han are all still alive when it starts it can't be that long.

 

I mean basically the three strongest forces are the Mandalorians, the Jedi and the Sith. I'd say the seperatists/imperials are their own thing, but the sith have really been driving that train the whole time. They seem to be playing the Mando and Jedi against each other for a long time now trying to weaken their enemies which is totally a 1/4 of the Sith playbook.

 

Seems like it's after Death Watch and Darth Maul though, since the Dark Saber is floating around and the Mandalorians are scattered. I guess I should be happy enough they are going into Yoda's race, seems like they are implying that maybe the entire race is force sensitive? I dunno. I like that it's ambiguous, but I at least want to know which time period ambiguous before I get my hopes up. Just shows you what good could come out of getting away from that one set timeline and exploring so much more out there. Who knows, there could be another galaxy out there with a thriving Jedi Temple. There could be a whole nother Jedi/Sith war coming.

 

It'll be really interesting to see where things go for the show now

 

I read somewhere recently a good point: that the Jedi were so few in number by the late Republic that to most of those living in the galaxy they were already essentially legends. Almost nobody would have ever seen one, and not many more would have known what the Force really meant on its own.

 

So when the Empire takes over and begins controlling information and communication (as they would), it would be easy to just stop teaching the existence of those, making any spread entirely local word-of-mouth lore. The Rebellion wasn't driven by the Force or the Jedi, they were just a resistance to the Empire. Even within the events of the OT, there is almost no overlap between the Jedi/Force and the actual fighting by the Rebels, so while stories of Luke's abilities may have gotten around, they would again have been rumor to most people.

 

It does seem strange at first glance, based on how central the Jedi are to the main group of movies. But the more you consider the state of the galaxy and how thing appear to work, the more it makes sense that to most the Jedi are legends from the past.
