That would be an interesting character to bring back to Canon again.

If only to Canonize that side note that Grand Moff Tarkin was a passionate lover.

 

Yes, this was mentioned in the novels Jedi Search and Death Star.

I'm sure he was always looking forward to debriefing her

Now that's a time period I'm really interested. 

Howso?  The Empire is gone at this point - this would be years after the Battle of Jakku that ended the war.

So...early days of the New Republic?  No real enemy to fight, so a series of just political posturing and bickering?  That doesn't sound super compelling...

Exactly because of that. When you stop with the simplistic manichaeism, you can actually develop a story. Hopefully in shades of gray (not the 50, though).

Because turning a planet into another Death Star that blows up whole solar systems was such an improvement.

Actually, Statkiller did exactly what it was built for, destroy the central government of the Republic and the bulk of its fleet.  The FO starfleet would have been free to engage the rest of the  Republic fleet that was spread thin around the galaxy.  Starkiller was superfluous after its first shot beyond being a vague threat and one of many  bases of operations

all the DS1 did was to allow a farm boy to embarrass an Empire and potentially allow a Grand Moff to rival the Emperor in power.

And that makes it better as a plot point than the Sun Crusher?  No, all that does is make it an in-universe reset button.

Some of the Legends books touched on the idea as the Empire became less of a threat, old grudges and distrust came back between some of the members of the alliance. Old rivals and, new up and comers could turn from ally against something more dangerous to the more concerning enemy. 

There is also room for other organizations trying to fill the power vacuum the Empire left, as well as the power vacuum left in the underworld by Jabba’s death.

It will likely be less all out war as previous episodes, but there is still room for battles, intrigue, and plenty of betrayal.

OMG, Game of Thrones in Star Wars?! Do. Want.

So the intention with this seems to tell all the backstory they didn't bother with for TFA. They know they can't fix that pile of dren right? 

Right. 

Just like how Clone Wars was a TV show to explain the back story they didn't bother with for ANH.

What a terrible movie, am I right?

No, you're not right. You're actually worse than not right. You're not even wrong. Perhaps you could explain which part of ANH was incomprehensible because they didn't tell us all about the Clone Wars?

I keep hoping it’s based off the xwing series. All new characters except wedge but they can get a wedge.  Love to see rogue and especially wraith squadrons. Was hoping rogue one team was going to be put together like the wraiths were. 

I would LOVE Wedge... I was so bummed he didn't return in TFA or TLJ; it would have been great to see him as a grizzled flight veteran. Easily my favorite OT character outside of the core heroes.

Really disappointed this isn't the Underworld series Lucas had started and was ready to film.  Hopefully that still gets made down the road.

The timeline of this show is definitely curious.  What's Star Wars without a "war"?  Is this gonna be a SW political drama?  West Wing in space so to speak?

Do we know when Luke started his jedi academy? I suppose that could be one aspect of the show.  Could even bring Hamill back and just dye his hair like they did for the TLJ flashbacks.

The Imperial states are still around. 

Technically only the Galactic Empire is gone by this point.

A successor state would technically be different so say Thrawn comes back, if he made his own Empire and waged a campaign it would still fit within the canon.

But to be fair, TV and Film canon outweigh book canon. If Favreau wants the Empire to come back as bad guys they'll find a way to make it happen.

The part where they mentioned the Clone Wars in passing, and I was all "Clone wars, what are those?"

So after Inferno Squad but before Resurrection.

Interesting. Hopefully it covers the rise of the First Order and explains why one man, General Hux, managed to gain such an army. 

Nepotism. Lots of Nepotism.

No, because Obi-Wan's line does little more than serve as a throw away line to show the universe has some history to it. That there were other things that happened. TFA, and TLJ on the other hand have actively tried to avoid any kind of mention of political states of the galaxy or giving much of a feel for the rest of the universe to avoid the politics of the PT that they think people disliked. But they sort of did it poorly just effectively going with a "Well, just read the books, comics, and watch all the other material so you understand what is going on, how this group hasn't just been wiped out etc..." Since the First Order was some small threat that between Star Killer Base and their fleet was able to wipe out the New Republic and take over the galaxy in 3 days give or take.

Just a note..  Poe is not the main character in Star Wars Resistance.

Even better! It gives them more freedom to really craft some detailed, unique characterizations with the new cast.

 Because Suncrusher is dumb but starkiller base is ok? 

It's dumb that a starfighter can destroy an entire solar system with one shot. It also happens to be impervious to every weapon known to man, and can ram its way through Imperial Star Destroyers.

But it isn't when you've a built a moon-sized supercannon in secret, so it does one thing, and consumes entire stars to do that thing. It's also not going anywhere really fast. That's a massive amount of effort to load and fire the weapon, over the incidental button-push of a neon-bright Mary Sue starfighter.
