Media Center>Star Wars post Skywalker

Project Luminous? Rumored to be Star Wars pre Skywalker era, but rather than Old Republic era it will be so-called High Republic, about 400 years before the Battle of Yavin (which means Yoda is alive...) and it may start with a video game next year before branching out into print, TV and eventually film. Basically sounds like, instead of doing trilogies, they're going to try to go the route of the MCU.

Couple different sources initially out with leaks about this yesterday, and it's starting to spread wider today.

If this is real it should be announced by Disney in the next few weeks. We shall see.

If “what scares the Jedi” is Palpatine, I’m out.

Books and comics. No TV series or films at this point.

With Iger stepping down as CEO of Disney, I'd say that Lucasfilm, especially KK, are in a real pickle.

I hope I'm wrong but this new era sounds boring. No Jedi vs. Sith? Just Jedi vs. "Punk Rock Vikings"?

Meh.

Books and comics was how the leaks said it would start, with a video game following.

If we're going BACKWARDS in time with Star Wars, show this (show LOTS of this) either in books, comics or animation. Make this era canonical as possible -

They're definitely playing the Long Game and it'll be interesting to see if and how many Star Wars fans buy into this premise.

I read most of the old EU books, which were definitely hit and miss, but felt compelled to do so because of the OT characters.

I had zero interest in the Young Jedi/Yuuzhan Vong era and never read even a single line from any books or comics relating to that time period.

As of today, I feel the same about this new era, set 200 years before the OT. It just sounds lame, almost like a Green Lantern ripoff.

I was the same with the old EU. I'll see how the reviews go on the new books. Although a good video game could get me on board.

I'm not really a gamer but a good animated series would interest me.

Clone Wars Season 7 is a huge leap in animation over their previous series, and that's coming from someone who loved the look of Seasons 1-6 of The Clone Wars and Rebels. The colors and depth of field are just mindblowing.

I just hope Lucasfilm allows this era to grow organically. Not everything automatically requires a film trilogy or Live Action TV series.

Meh, I'm done now. It's like the new Era of baseball cards. I could care less about the new ones. Too glitzy. Too perfect. I'll stick with 70s baseball cards.
