No. Is anyone you know talking about The High Republic?
Is anyone you know talking about the Bad Batch? Star Wars has thrown a lot at fans to see what sticks. I don’t know if even the story lines that I am interested in would work in cinema. They do have options: One option would be Thrawn and his activities, but he is a villain. Same with Vader. Another would be Dr. Aphra, who is not a jedi, but a smart lady and those comics are good, but is every franchise going to sell us out to the east? The one that might actually work is Bounty Hunters. Bounty Hunters and their mentors and their sub-culture and their world. Like many have said about villians and anti-heroes though is where is the good? Where is the moral message?
It’s great to see other franchises like Asimov’s Foundation and DUNE come to cinema, but the tone is very serious and kind of dark. Does Star Wars want to be exactly the same? The thing that was different about Luke and Han than all these other things is that it seemed like it was fun. There was a fun element to the story and what they were doing on the right side of the force.
I thought that the only time Star Wars got really dark was on ‘Revenge of the Sith’ especially on the Order 66 scene (I can’t seem to watch that scene without getting my eyes watery because some idiot left an onion in my room😂😅😭). And even more so during Anakin’s burning scene which they’ve cut on TV down here because of it being “too graphic”.
