Benioff and Weiss’ First Star Wars Film to Begin Filming this Fall

Recommended Posts

I think they should go full blown, Tales of the Jedi aesthetic. The Old Republic visuals looked too much like the Prequels and Original Trilogy to sell the fact that it was supposedly millennia prior to anything we had seen in the films. At least KoTOR had made efforts to differentiate itself from the look of the films (ship and weapon design especially) to at least offer a veneer of being in a different time period.

Are you refereing to the series where the ships were hollowed out giant insects, and the lightsabers had backpacks?

You mean the game with the It’s Totally Not Millenium Falcon™️ And the Totally Not TIE Fighters™️ And even Not Bacta™️?  Oh.. I forgot the faceless numerous enemies that were Totally Not Stormtroopers™️.

Kotor was a lazy piece of garbage game.   Boring mechanics, boring story, and boring design that ripped off the otiginal series elements - disfigured sith lord, disposable enemy ships, assymetric hero ship.. the whole game was an unsubtle wink to players to let then know it was a star wars game, and made thd ridiculous notion that no new technology would get invented for 10,000 years, all the while you manage a loot system, while battling in cortosis underwear.

Now, yes, The Old Republic MMO was even worse with designs, making ships that so closely resemble TIE fighters if is appaling.

Now, despite them being Totally Not Stormtroopers™️ In kotor I did appreciate the design of the Sith Troopers.  I just wish they weren't used in such an obvious way.   I did like the Selkath alien design however.  

There was just too much design in the games both story and visually thoug, that was boring and predictable.  I tried to like kotor, but I could not.

I liked the story of KOTOR a lot, but it didn't need to be thousands of years before the OT. Honestly, it didn't need to be Star Wars at all...

The wanted to make a Star Wars story, but they needed enough legroom where they could make a huge, galaxy spanning threat, adventure and important heroes without it impacting any of then-canon books and media. It needed to be able to make waves that would have settled out by the time of the existing Star Wars timelines without anyone wondering why no one else was talking about this Star Forge and those particular Sith Lords and such if it was recent history.

I'm less excited than I once was. It's possible that they'll handle this better than they have the closing episodes of GOT. I'm much more reserved in my hope on that front now.

Sure.  If they can find a talented writer capable of weaving together a compelling, multi-layered narrative that can keep pace with the production of their series, they should be fine.

Articles I've seen say they are writing this as well. Would not be surprised if more writers are brought in as well but yeah.

I can kind of relate, everyone loved KOTOR except me. Most of my friends loved the game, my son loved the game and still does, I couldn’t stand it myself. I never liked the gameplay but did love several of the characters. The gameplay was about as enjoyable as watching paint dry for me. Sometimes we don’t like a game because the gameplay doesn’t appeal to us, whether or not it’s a great game is subjective,even to the people who gave it those awards, and yes, I was trying it when it was winning those awards.

I'm betting they also rate the FF series gameplay highly... I liked the story, tech and locations in KOTOR and KOTOR 2. The Final Fantasy style gameplay was irksome (I despise turn based combat), as was the gen 3 console game style difficulty spike and rails of KOTOR 2.
