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 **

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…

Episode IX - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *

So, are they just going to completely gloss over the other students at Luke’s academy? Apparently like most of them died and a handful became Knights of Ren, which seems like something too big to simply ignore. I mean these are apparently the only other trained Force users anywhere. Where the hell are they???

Maybe Snoke sent them on an important errand. If there’s a lost Jedi temple, there must be a lost Sith temple somewhere?

Isn’t that on Malachor as seen in Rebels?

How many 'Bad' Star Wars movies could you take before you check out?
Time

Density said:

I had already pretty much checked out after the prequels, for several years. I barely gave a second thought to Star Wars and I’m not sure I watched any of the movies in their entirety for the better part of a decade from 2005 to 2015. Obviously I didn’t like the prequels and I was so put off by the changes to the originals that I never even finished watching the DVDs I bought in 2004 and didn’t even get the Blu-rays for a long while. I didn’t know about Despecialized or even the GOUT, and had no desire to dig out old VHS tapes, so Star Wars was basically dead to me for quite some time.

Then the hype around TFA “awakened” my dormant interest in the series… and lead me to discovering Despecialized and all of a sudden I remembered why I loved Star Wars so much as a kid. It really was like R2 lighting up at the end of TFA. So I’ve maintained my renewed interest in the franchise in the two years since.

This for me also (slightly abridged version of your post!).
