    The Acolyte.

    Ahsoka would probably come in second because that post ROTJ part of her life really does intrigue me and it's the only one where I actually wouldn't mind the universe shrinking that's almost certainly going to take place.

    Everything else I have at least mild interest in.

    Unfortunately the more I hear about Kenobi the more cold on it I get, but to be honest I was never fully on-board with it to begin with.

    Conversely, Visions is one of the ones I'm starting to get more interested in precisely because it looks the most unique out of all these projects. The concept art here doesn't even look remotely Star Wars-esque. Like seriously, seeing that out of context, and no-one would ever think it had anything to do with Star Wars. But that's why I'm excited to see Star Wars branch out and try something completely different.

    As for The Bad Batch, I'm looking forward to that less so for the Bad Batch characters themselves, and moreso because it seems like it'll be The Clone Wars 2.0. If Bad Batch is even half as good as its predecessor series, then it'll be worth it in my eyes.

    Obi - Wan, I really want Hayden to be given a chance of acting away from the green screen - even if it’s flashbacks, cut scenes or whatever.

    The Acolyte - with all the EU ideas they have, I’m excited to see what they come up with.

    Bad Batch - could go under the radar and be the most gritty and best of the lot.

    It's a toss-up between Lando and Obi-Wan. I voted Lando, but I think that's because I have my own ideas for how I'd do an Obi-Wan show/movie trilogy (coming soon-ish), and I think it compromises me. Other than that, The Bad Batch trailer really sold me on the premise! I wasn't so hot on it when it was first announced, but if it can live up to the trailer...maybe things will change.

    I'm interested in Bad Batch more for the timeline, and actually in spite of it being a semi-continuation of CW. Haha. (I can admire what they did with CW, particularly in the last couple season, but personally I didn't get too much out of it otherwise.) But I love that SW gives something to everyone in our own different ways. :)

    Its dangerous for me to be feeling this way already, but I desperately want Lando to be a success -- if only for the fact that this may be the closest we get to Solo 2 for the time being, and I feel the longer it runs / better it does the greater chance Solo 2 actually has a chance of happening.

    And at the same time I also don't want this to cover anything immediately after Solo because I want plenty of room reserved for Solo 2 to happen in all its glory. I'm a conflicted soul...

    In that alternate universe/timeline where Solo was a box office smash, I would certainly welcome a second (and third?) film. But I just can't see a theatrical sequel happening at this point, even if the later Star Wars films are still successful. So in that sense, I really hope Lando more or less takes the place of the "Solo sequel that would have been" because at this point, it seems like it's our best chance for any sort of follow-up.

    Most excited for Obi-Wan but I have to say the announcement above was the most intriguing to me. The graphics tell me we are going old-school, like the settling of Typhon old-school.

    I am beside myself with joy for The Acolyte, and I am surprised and delighted the polls agree with me on this one. Disney (let’s be honest) is over-saturating the market with “been there- done that” Star Wars shows/movies, so it’s refreshing to see something vastly different from the rest of the pack. In the end, I truly believe Acolyte will turn the most heads (and, no doubt, be controversial to the purists.)

    I never see a reality where I will walk away from Star Wars, but if I did (hypothetically speaking,) it will be due to the over-saturation. Look at what we got so far: 4 out of the last 5 films under Disney’s watch heavily featured the Millennium Falcon. Every single one (tv included) heavily featured x-wing pilots. 2 major projects (TFA and Mando season 2) relied on the same exact “wow” moment: Luke Skywalker appears.
    Every single project connected back to ANH in some way. I’m not saying these fan-servicing things are “bad” per se. I enjoyed quite a few of them, particularly the CGI Luke Skywalker, which seemed like something pulled out of my wildest dreams. However, I was not thrilled to hear about the Lando show, The Droid’s Tale, or Rogue Squadron.

    I will be heavily invested in The Acolyte whenever it’s released on D+

    I'm still looking forward to all of them. It looks like we'll have a pretty nice balance of familiar and brand new. And that balance is something I think the franchise should continue to embrace in the future; as in, it shouldn't be too much of one extreme or the other.

    But anyway, from most excited to least:

    1. The Book of Boba Fett - This is coming the soonest of all the live-action projects, which might have influenced its position on my list. Still, I had been waiting a long time to see Boba in action again, and his grand comeback in Mando S2 was immensely satisfying. Despite the fact that we already had a series focusing on a Mandalorian character, I still felt that there was ripe story potentional for Boba to have his own series on top of that. I'm pleased that Disney thought the same. :D

    2. The Acolyte - This was the one I was the more excited for prior to the Boba Fett announcement, and the one I'd voted for on the poll. To quote my earlier post, "the other TV shows have largely had to work around the canon that the films established first. It'll be really cool to have a series that can chart its own course." A mystery/thriller series is absolutely appealing, and seeing more of the High Republic scratches my itch to see a brand new era. This one can't come soon enough. :)

    3. Rangers of the New Republic - This one already has goodwill built up simply for being a Mandalorian spin-off. Beyond that, I'd really wanted to learn more about the New Republic, and in general to see more of the 30-year timespan between ROTJ and TFA.

    4. Visions - This seems like it'll be the most unusual, different, and unpredictable out of all of these. An anthology anime series is not what I would have expected from Star Wars, but that's precisely why I'm intrigued to see how it turns out.

    5. Obi-Wan Kenobi - This was my most anticipated series back when it was just this, Andor, and Mandalorian that had been announced. I was even more eager for this one than I was for Episode IX. It's since been overshadowed a bit by all the other announcements, but still one of the higher entries here. Bringing back Ewan and Hayden certainly didn't hurt either. ;)

    6. Andor - I've always been a fan of spy thrillers as it is, so this looks like it'll be right up my alley.

    7. The Bad Batch - As mentioned above, it looks like it'll be The Clone Wars 2.0, but in my books that's a good thing. It also has an advantage on this list for coming out sooner than the other projects. Plus, I'm happy that Disney is still taking the time to do animation even with all the live-action projects going on right now.

    8. Rogue Squadron - In the opposite direction from The Acolyte, we'll (hopefully) be seeing another brand new era, set after TROS. This movie seems like it'll be Anthology material, but if anything that makes me happy. I'm pleased that Solo didn't kill off these sorts of ideas for movies after all. Beyond that, I'm just happy that they announced something firm and definite for the 2023 film at all, as I'd been starting to worry about Star Wars' future in films. Here's hoping this does well.

    9. Ahsoka - Again it's a Mandalorian spinoff, so you can't go wrong there. :) My hype for this one got stolen and overshadowed to an extent by Boba Fett and New Republic (along with everything else). However, it seems like this series will follow up on Rebel's cliffhanger with the Thrawn/Ezra plot, which helps restore some of my enthusiasm.

    10. A Droid Story - As much of a television/serial fan that I am, the Star Wars films are special to me too and I wouldn't want the TV shows to completely replace those, so any new film at all is a good thing. Curious to see who this new droid character ends up being.

    11. Lando - As much as I enjoyed Solo, in itself I wasn't nearly as excited for this one for some reason. But here's hoping they use it as an opportunity to follow up on the Crimson Dawn plotline, which is enough to rank this above Taika's film for me.

    12. Taika Waititi's film - I'm guessing this'll be the 2025 film? Either way, as with Rogue Squadron and A Droid Story, I'm happy with the announcement of another film at all, although this one is quite a ways away, and we don't really know anything else about it yet. Thor: Ragnarok is the only film of Taika's that I've seen. While I liked it overall, I thought it was a bit too silly for its own good. He'll probably bring his trademark style to this project as well. But on the other hand, Star Wars has done dark and dramatic so many times that perhaps a more wacky, light-hearted tale could work out really well. The logo definitely looks cool. :cool:

    Though i'm excited for all the new SW-content coming up, Kenobi is stil No.1 for me. Closely followed by BoBF and Ahsoka, from a nostalgic point of view..

    Though "The Acolyte" intrigues me... cause aside from getting an era we haven't really seen before, the name suggests to me that the story would be told from the perspective of a Sith Acolyte (the counterpart to a Jedi Padawan)... could be very interesting! :cool:

    With the Acolyte, I realized that we may see a younger Yoda, and explore how Yoda knew of Darth Bane and the Rule of Two. Thus my interest for this has show taken the lead.

    That would be interesting. I never stopped to think about how Yoda knew about the Rule of 2 in the first place. That would be interesting to know. However, going back with my original comment a few days ago in this thread, the risk Disney runs is relying too much on nostalgia and the been-there-done-that. If Yoda is in it I would like him to have a somewhat small role like TPM.

    I am torn on the Book of Boba Fett. That scene implies that he takes over Jabba’s palace, which would be a waste because Boba is interesting when he’s sneaking around various planets (or hiding with the trash on star destroyers.) Having him “tied down” giving out orders would limit him severely (if that’s indeed the way they’re going to go.) I am also torn because of Robert Rodriguez. Having him as a Star Wars director was a dream come true... but I would much rather see him direct that Alita: Battle Angel sequel (which is one of the few things I like more than Star Wars, btw.)

    I'll gladly watch them all, but Ahsoka Tano has become a top-5 character in the GFFA for me, so yeah I'm looking most forward to that. And Dawson did such a great job of portraying her ... better than I ever expected.

    I know I am in the minority, but I was pretty disappointed with the announcement of the upcoming projects. SW is spending way too much time retreading old ground. Same old characters, tied to the same old narratives. Below are my thoughts on some of the projects announced. I don't mean to sound overly negative, but these are my honest feelings.

    Obi-Wan Series - I don't understand why anyone wants this. Everyone was excited about a Han Solo movie. The majority of people view that movie as a disappointment. I don't want to see the same thing happen with Obi-Wan, and really there is nothing I know of to tell me that that won't happen. We already know more about Obi-Wan than practically any other character in the SW universe. He was in all three of the OT movies. He was a central character in all three of the PT movies. He was central to the Clone Wars series. Do we really need to continue to mine this character?

    Lando Series - Many of my Obi-Wan comments apply here. Also, I never was a huge Lando fan.

    Ahsoka - She's already been in three different series - CW, Rebels, Mando. Do we need to see her own series? More retread of a character we have already seen for many years.

    Book of Boba Fett - Another character we have already known for 40 years. A large part of what made Boba cool was the mystery around him. The more the character is explored, the more that mystery is destroyed.

    Andor - A prequel to a prequel. More retreading of old ground. Not to mention that Cassian Andor was the most annoying character to me in Rogue One.

    Rogue Squadron - It's good that they are getting past the era of the Skywalker saga and hopefully this will center on brand new characters. But I have always felt that good and evil Force users (e.g., Jedi and Sith) were central to SW. Without them, SW is much less interesting to me. Thus far, SW has not worked well in one-off movies, which this appears to be. If this turns out to be "Top Gun in Space", as a lot of people are saying, I will be very disappointed.

    Bad Batch - more retread. Haven't seen these characters enough already? They're not all that interesting to begin with.

    The Acolyte - This was the only project I was really excited about when I first heard about it. In large part that is because I thought it was going to be set 200 years before The Phantom Menace. This is what I want - a new era for SW to explore that does not rely on characters we have already seen for years. However, I am now hearing that the series is actually set approximately 70 years before TPM. It is sounding more like a prequel to the Prequel Trilogy. Rumors are that it may show a young Palpatine. It sounds to me like it is highly likely it will feature Darth Plagues (fan service). This all makes me much less excited about this series.

    Again, I hate to sound overly negative, but these are my honest feelings about these projects.

    According to this article, it appears that Lando might take place across more than one timeline, including after Episode IX. This raises my interest in the show somewhat. :)

    I can’t decide between Ahsoka, Kenobi and The Acolyte. I’m not super keen on Bad Batch (but I’ll watch it), and I need more info on Rangers and Lando. The rest I’m fine with.

    excited for: ahsoka, kenobi, bad batch, book of boba fett, andor
    dont know much about: the acolyte, rangers, rouge squadron
    meh: lando,
