As much as we all love the OT, I think it’s time for them to move past it a bit and start telling more stories in what is ostensibly the “current” era of Star Wars. At the moment, the amount of material in the ST period is shockingly low, considering.
I think this has been so that they don’t box themselves into any corners with ST plot/worldbuilding, but as EpIX is (presumably) written by now they’re free from that.
No doubt, and it makes sense, just a little weird when you think about it and compare it to the onslaught of material that came out during the prequels, about the prequels. Even the OT had a good amount of stuff at the time too, between the various comics and such.
