My Idea for a SW Show set between RotJ and TFA.

Hey guys. I know I already put up another thread similar to this, and sorry for that, but after seeing the new SW Rebels trailer for season 4, I wanted to get this off my chest, seeing how SW Rebels will end. This is an idea I started months ago before seeing any trailers whatsoever.

My idea for a new SW show is called “STAR WARS: New Republic Tales” (a working title), which it takes place from around 20 ABY or so up to the fall of Luke’s Jedi Academy. Much like Rebels, the series will focus on a group of new characters who are either loosely related to the sequel trilogy or have no relation whatsoever, and these characters will have to deal with the rise of the First Order and the Knights of Ren (who in this case-until further info is revealed-will be known as the Acolytes of the Beyond).

The cast would include a young boy who runs away from home to join the Jedi and purposefully gets wrapped up in all this mess (Liam), a Jedi who was personally trained by Luke and was recently knighted (Vima Boda), a ex-stormtrooper veteran who lost his faith in the Empire and joins our heroes (Rennek), a Zabrak who very spiritual but doesn’t have the Force (Kar’baz), and the droid (KT-80). Their main enemy (or Vader here) is a female darksider who first ‘befriends’ our main lead to get to his allies and later on develops a rivalry with the Jedi Knight of the group. This person would last throughout the entire series (about three seasons) until she’s killed off in the end, either by Kylo Ren or by our heroes.

Now, I would try to keep universe shrinking to a minimum. Characters like Han and Leia won’t appear that much, less so than Luke, who will be shown off-screen training Ben. More focus will be given to other characters who don’t appear so much in the movies, but as time goes on, and we do see Leia’s resistance movement, we will see more familiar characters from time to time. Also, I would like to include a bit of Legends characters (e.g. Tionne Solusar, Corran Horn, etc.) to the Jedi, or something akin to their characters, so to introduce aspects of Legends continuity, while working in the Disney canon.

Animation-wise, I would like to get something similar to Genndy Tartakovsky. I am biased to his works (the 2003 Clone Wars micro-series and Samurai Jack), but he does an amazing job animating, like Hotel Transylvania (story’s crud, but man does it look good!) and if some episodes don’t have a good plot, then at least they would be pretty to look at.

So what do you guys think? Any good, or is it just trash? Do any of you guys have your own ideas? What stories and characters, new or familiar, would you like to see? I’d like to hear. Take care.

Your ideas sound good for the most part. However, I don’t know how about having a fully trained Jedi Knight running alongside Luke. Ren wasn’t a fully trained darksider when he wiped out Luke’s disciples, which works in they were still just fledglings themselves. But Ren being able to take on and defeat a Jedi who completed their training when he couldn’t beat the untrained Rey years later? That sounds problematic.

Well, there has been no official statement saying that none of Luke’s pupils became Jedi Knights, so I just went with that (plus, I wanted to get a Tales of the Jedi reference in somehow with Vima). But I do see your point. If necessary, Vima, my Jedi character, could be a former Jedi who left Luke’s Academy after a tragic accident happened. Still, we’ll just have to wait and see what the Disney canon will come up with.

Interesting idea. You’ve gotten me thinking about the sort of show I’d like to see…

I imagine a show about a group of biologists/archaeologists who went to an alien world to study a long dead civilization, and were eventually stranded there. The show focuses on them and their families, who have been living among the ruins of this once-vast civilization for untold generations, fending off attacks by strange yet intelligent creatures from neighboring planets in the system, and attempting to find a way back to the Old Republic.

One of the big mysteries of the show is how long they’ve been stranded, since they were stranded centuries before the Empire or New Republic. The tone is very much a Flash Gordon serial with a greater emphasis on alien science and the magic of the Force. Everything remains used-universe, such as the remaining supplies of the humans, but the alien worlds contain vast, Akira-esque spaces and strange technology.
