    Good.

    Good. This honestly should have happened from the very beginning.

    Bah, whatever. There doesn’t *need* to be more Star Wars. If you don’t reference the Skywalker saga or timeline – how is it Star Wars? No empire, no force?
    If he can be clever and do something like or with KOTOR, ok.

    But they make sound like he’s leaving not only the characters, but the lore behind as well. If so, then it’s SW in name only.

    I’m a Skywalker/Solo fan. That said, I’m all for a new story, with new characters, in a new part of the universe. But the characters and storyline have to make sense.

    Honestly, Mandalorian is the only good show outside of the Skywalker saga (and Luke does a cameo at the end of Season 2). Rebels was just ok. Boba Fett is confusing; his story is boring. The only interesting episodes included the Mandalorian and Grogu. Star Wars Resistance was horrible. The last 3 films were a train wreck.

    Hopefully, this new story with new characters in a separate part of the universe will tell a story worth watching.

    I think Disney has destroyed Star Wars and this is just getting worse. I cherish the classic saga and sticking with that because the recent ones with Rey, Finn, and Poe just didn’t grab me much. That’s just my opinion, though, and I’m sticking with it.

    I want both. I want new stories with new characters, but also think there is room for expanding on the legacy story. Clearly there is a demand for both.
