Yeah, I just saw the trailer, but I’m not quite sure yet what exactly it is. I’m assuming they’ve finally finished the previously cancelled and half-finished seventh season, right? Or is this something new?

Wikipedia (currently) only says they’re releasing 12 new episodes.

One 12 episode season (source: James Arnold Taylor’s Twitter).

Don’t forget Kenner brought back the toys in 1995, a full two years before the SE’s. Sure, Luke and the gang looked like they’d been hanging out on Eternia, but damn it was good to see Star Wars toys on the shelves again!
We also had the stuffed to the gills soundtrack anthology, and the (not so) Definitive Collection Laserdisc box set in 1993. I don’t think there ever was a time that the OT was out of print on home video in the 80’s or 90’s.

I’d say 91-95 was a fun, ‘pure’ time for those reasons - Zahn, new Kenner Eternia figures, soundtrack CDs, VHS sets…

Don’t forget the birth of LucasArts games, 90s was its prime.

Yes!!!

Thinking about it, it was my all time favourite era.

Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **
Time

I am actually interested in this movie. Why? Because I’ve never thought about young Han Solo. I thought about what Luke might do after ROTJ, I thought about what happened before the OT (before I saw PT).

There isn’t anything this movie can ruin for me, no expectations it can fall short of.

Yup - I’m also hoping for more of a fun watch - the last two R1 and TLJ have had massive stakes, so hopefully something well crafted but lighter…
