Yeah, if the show was set before TESB like TCW is, I think it’d take away from the whole carbon freeze thing. But since it’s set after TESB, I think it works well.
And RO is by far my favorite post-2005 SW related thing, so I’m super excited that the DP is the same and the whole feel is the same. I think RO also drew inspiration from, very specifically, the aesthetic of the first act of the first film. I couldn’t be more excited. I think this is what Lucasfilm should’ve been doing since the Disney acquisition. Lucas already told his story. Of course they’d have to release VII - IX, but IMO they shouldn’t have. They should’ve just focused on telling stories in this endless universe that is the SW galaxy. I haven’t watched Solo, but RO is one of my favorite SW films. And this is looking like is going to be one of my favorite pieces of SW media. Yay!
