<strong>The Expanse</strong> - <em>2015-???? TV Series</em>
Time

Ha ha. I just scrolled upward and noticed the OT “reader” of the book series has been banned. Hopefully, a temp ban, though I don’t wander the forum much.
Wikipedia indicates “The Expanse” consists of eight novels (with a final ninth planned), as well as novellas and short stories. I have no intention of reading any of those.

So what I am wondering - if there is another reader of the series - will S06 offer closure somewhat as did S03?

I’ve just started reading the series, but it’s my understanding after the sixth book there is a time jump of about 30 years, so the sixth is a good place for the series to stop. I’ll know more for sure myself when I get that far.

‘After almost eight years of exclusivity with EA, Lucasfilm Games will be joining forces with Ubisoft to create an open-world Star Wars game. And that’s just the beginning.’ - https://twitter.com/WIRED/status/1349336675047120897

And it’s great that EA’s exclusivity has ended and more companies can come on board now.

Yub nub!

The Last Jedi: Official Review and Opinions Thread ** SPOILERS **
Time

There’s a difference. Lando and the Ewoks did actually did change as events moved along. They were actual adversaries that became allies. Rose and Holdo didn’t change at all, they changed the main characters views. Finn learned from Rose and Poe from Holdo. To me TLJ is about learning from failure. Decisions aren’t always black or white, there’s a whole lot of gray.

Popularity of the Original Trilogy enhanced by Prequels?
Time

If the last new Star wars we ever saw was back in 1983, the franchise wouldn’t be as popular as it is today. The originals may have maintained a reputation of being groundbreaking for their time, and a cultural touchstone, but so many young people have an attachment to Star Wars that has very little to do with the originals. They most likely only saw those movies out of curiosity about how it all started.

As it is now, all parts of Star Wars reinforce each other. Each generation has their own take on it. I’d say it’s more correct that the prequels, as well as other new content, is what will keeps people aware of Star Wars. I don’t see an end in sight, and that’s comforting.

'Star Wars: <strong>The High Republic</strong>' era publishing project (was aka 'Project Luminous')
Time

I finished Light of the Jedi yesterday. Thought about making a dedicated thread for it, but there doesn’t seem to be much interest here in the High Republic, at least not yet.

I think that will change. Watching that panel with all the authors, the have so much planned across all levels of books and comics. More importantly, Light of the Jedi was really good. I highly recommend it. I think the High Republic will become a huge part of Star Wars.

I can’t believe how well planned all of it sounds. I know they’ve been working on it for years, but it sound like they have so much mapped out. There’s a ton of concept art too and it all looks amazing. I’m all in on this.

I fully agree mate; some impressive people involved in this, and have seemingly been given the time and freedom to plan out what they are doing with it. Good to see the official site heavily behind this too:

Star Wars: The High Republic Is Here

and even the official site having a dedicated section to this too - https://www.starwars.com/the-high-republic
 

Plus, your own Upcoming Star Wars Release Schedule thread on here is pretty useful & helpful resource too 👍
 

I updated it just now with new titles and dates. (I originally posted it in the Expanded Universe section but maybe I should have put it in the Beyond Star Wars section since it lists movies and TV series too.)

I’m really enjoying “Light of the Jedi” so far!

Opinions Change
Time

When I was a kid, I considered the movies canon and all the Expanded Universe material to just be the equivalent of fan fiction. As I got older and heard people frequently praising several of the same stories like Thrawn, I realized I’d probably missed out on a lot of quality Star Wars, so I sought them out and was pleasantly surprised.
