I'm skeptical they'll manage to give each of these a distinct feel rather than following the proven Mando formula. I think I'd be more excited if there was one or two series in development rather than a half dozen.

Remember when 15 or 16 years would pass without a new Star Wars thing, that was pretty tight in retrospect

Well, depending on the media. That Timothy Zahn book in 1991 kickstarting the run of novels and the various 90s computer games were keeping interest pretty high.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 10 December 2020 23:41 (two months ago) link

I remember as a young fan in the 80s/early 90s being convinced there'd never be another proper Star Wars thing...

"bought $100 worth of Star Wars toys"

"oh, the kids will love that..."

"right....the kids..."

I hope, completely and unironically, that the Rangers of the New Republic series does nothing but remake old CHiPs episodes, and somehow stars Estrada, Wilcox, Dorn and Chris Pine's dad.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 10 December 2020 23:44 (two months ago) link

Yyyyyyyyeah, mandalorian is one thing as a fun retro treat but fuck if I’m clearing out a fucking mall size space in my memory palace for this avalanche of trademarks.

misread one of the projects as Star Wars: The Bad Bitch

wait the Obi-Wan show is gonna have Hayden Christiansen as Darth?

wtf - JEJ is still gonna do the voice, presumably, so....are they just paying him to walk around in the costume?

xp Me too

Supposedly he's retired from doing the voice, but I don't know if that was just a rumor or not. At the least there's been no handoff as with Chewie yet.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 10 December 2020 23:53 (two months ago) link

oh god if Hayden does the voice

Darth "Stoned" Vader

this is a controversial opinion, but I think this is too much star wars

silverfish, Thursday, 10 December 2020 23:58 (two months ago) link

A Lando show is just too good, man i loved me some Solo.

Star Wars: The Bad Bitch

yeah gonna be a lot of demands for this now - Sy Snootles finally getting her due

nashwan, Friday, 11 December 2020 00:01 (two months ago) link

this is like when as a teenager I went to a bookstore in the 90s and saw dozens of star wars books. Suddenly something I like becomes way too much and not something I want to keep track of.

silverfish, Friday, 11 December 2020 00:05 (two months ago) link

The Star Wars franchise should just be non-stop announcements of things that are never delivered.

jmm, Friday, 11 December 2020 00:06 (two months ago) link

every single one of these things is going to feature a puppet baby version of a preexisting character

Man, even as a huge fan of Star Wars, this is too much. And I really miss the days when this was all slowly revealed, not spat out in one massive investor call data dump.

lukas, Friday, 11 December 2020 00:39 (two months ago) link

I'm pretty cool with just continuing to treat the pre-Disney material and the Filoniverse as the only SW stuff worth paying attention to. Granted, wrt the latter that would still have me on the hook for half of these new shows.

I feel like there's a very real chance "The Acolyte" will have baby Sheev.

jmm, Friday, 11 December 2020 00:47 (two months ago) link

there's gonna be a movie about how Sheev conceived his son

Kind of interesting article (with a minor spoiler about future plans, if you haven't finished The Mandalorian yet): https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/disney-star-wars-marvel-studios-1234866986/

one month passes...

I'm just going to post this now because I can see that I'm going to get a lot of requests -

Yes, Rian's SW trilogy is still on. No dates or timelines because he has other projects going on, but it is happening.

THAT IS ALL I KNOW ABOUT IT. 😁😁😁
