Dear god. I must be getting old. Hardly any of what was announced was appealing to me. Rogue Squadron sounds interesting, but everything else did nothing for me.

It's not like they had a great track record with everything after RotJ.

They surprised me in a positive way with Mandalorian, but I'd be happier if they took their little success the have now and expand more carefully, carefully nurturing that little plant that is Mando instead of doing the same mistakes they did before.

Not sure about Filoni and Favreau being able to sustain the quality they show now though all of these shows and movies.
If they are even involved.

Filoni and Favreau were mentioned only for Ahsoka and Rangers projects. They seems to have a plan for doing an interconnected story out of this three shows. It theoretically could show state of the post-RotJ era from a different perspectives, still giving main characters their own separate arcs and linking all of these stories in a single event which will unite them to fight with a common enemy (Thrawn perhaps?). Could be dope, provided if it will be done right. I'm still cautiously optimistic, but it seems like a way better idea than telling each of these stories within Mandalorian.

Yep, that's true.
I mean, I was fond of the idea of that Ahsoka spin off (better than to have that Jedi stuff "polluting" the Mandalorian), and I am interested in what they were going for with Cara. I like that "Edge of the Empire" outer rim setting. And if Filoni and Favreau are at the helm, this might turn out really great.

I am just not that content that all these other hundred series might turn out that great.

We will see..
 
Look at all that trash

Less is more Disney..less will make you more $$ in the longrun

Agreed. With Mando they can still focus on his personal quests, Ahsoka can focus on her search for Thrawn and Rangers will probably be an ensemble show that would offer a more in-depth look at the state of the New Republic. I wouldn't be surprised if Cara will be one of few characters that will be a part of this series.

You're right, some of these projects seems like a very odd choices. I'm slowly warming up to the idea of the Cassian show, but I still feel wary about it as his character wasn't memorable to me in the slightest (unlike his droid) and I feel this era was exploited too much in recent years.

Few of them could be quite interesting though. The Acolyte sounds like a very cool idea. The show about a dark side user operating in the shadows, who is on the journey to become a Sith in a galaxy where Jedi are in their prime and they can become easily a target could serve as a setup for a really neat story.

The Bad Batch may feel like a weird idea for a show, but when you think about it, this may have a lot of cool possibilities. It seems to be set directly post-Order 66, so it could explore a lot of themes that weren't really estabilished before like what happened with clones after they served their purpose, how Order 66 has changed them or showing how characters from The Clone Wars transitioned from the war to a completely new reality under Empire. A trailer looks good.

The Caspian show interests me because as great as Rogue One is, it's character development is quite poor. The Caspian show might retroactively make Rogue One even better knowing more about him.

And the series is being done by the guy who directed the Rogue One reshoots.

Alien series as the spiritual successor to the first two movies and completely ignoring the rest... yes please!!!

I'm curious how that will work being set on earth between the first two films. My Aliens history may be rusty but there shouldn't be an alien specimen on earth at that time... unless Weyland had a specimen after the first movie, then lost it which is why they needed to create the colony in Aliens.

I thought it all looked great, it was like Comic Con in an investor call. Insane.

The Star Wars stuff all sounds good, excited to see the Mando/Ahsoka/Rangers crossover event. At least we know all of these should still capture the "OT+" look we've seen in The Mandalorian.

The rest of them look good too! I am excited to consoooooom.

It’s so funny they announced 10 Star Wars shows and none of them take place during or after the sequel trilogy. Just lol.

Also where is Rian Johnson’s trilogy that is definitely happening? They announced 10 Star Wars and that wasn’t any of them.

I will check out all the new SW stuff, because I have a problem that involves loving star wars, and convincing myself there will be good star wars movies again. The Rogue Squadron should be a great opportunity to do something amazing or fun. I just want them to stop with the Force is Female garbage. Imagine if I had a slogan about how the force is manly, it wouldn't fly. Just make good movies and shows without trying to shoehorn some agenda.

As someone who loved watching the MCU. I can not give any shit about this at all. For me the MCU died with Endgame.

Taika Waititi... Man do you think they would let him do Knights of the Old Republic, or something in that timeline? After Thor Ragnarok and Jojo Rabbit I am hyped for anything he does.
