New Star Wars

sheridan:
From the looks of it, Disney's main focus, Star Wars-wise, is on streaming series rather than films for the foreseeable future.


Star Wars - The Mandalorian (has its own long-running thread so no need to discuss it here).


The Bad Batch - looks like a follow-up to The Clone Wars, set at the beginning of the Empire.

Lando - self-explanatory.

A Droid Story - but which droid?  I'll have a look for the sizzle reel during my lunch hour, unless someone else finds it first.

Rogue Squadron - no doubt based on characters from the game.

Ahsoka - self-explanatory.

Rangers of the New Republic - ?

The Acolyte - ?

Obi-Wan Kenobi - self-explanatory - was originally going to be a Star Wars Story film but I think it's a series now.

Andor - the special forces guy from Rogue One.

Visions - ?

This one sounds particularly interesting. I think the start of the Empire is a time that has much potential and I don't think has been tapped too much (though I do miss out a lot of old expanded universe stuff). I'd want it be to be a bit like Rome (telly show). A balance between the political struggles needed to build an Empire and the impact on the troops on the ground and the folks they encounter. ... mind I want most things to be like Rome (telly show) so I'm not to be trusted!

Also looking forward to Kenobi - if its done as a cool space western type thing... well Samuari movie from which Westerns are devived would be the more accurate comparison I guess. They start getting this right and I might finally justify getting a Disney Plus subscription... which of course means I'd be prime sucker for them.

Tomwe:
The Patty Jenkins announcement video has me excited!

This was my fervent wish when it was first announced as a movie, but hasn't The Mandalorian rather cornered the market on that vibe?

Not seen it yet - does seem to from the bits I'd seen BUT can there be too many stories with that vibe? ... also see my comment about wanting everything to be like Rome (telly show)
