    By all accounts, he's a darling to work with. We know he had a great relationship with Pablo Hidalgo and Kathleen Kennedy at the very least, as well as with the actors. There is no indication that Rian Johnson doesn't play by the rules (that was Lord and Miller, in case you got the directors confused).

    Although, if this is the "high republic" era, just what, about 400-500 years before the PT, the Sith are believed to be extinct. I think there will be/should be a different enemy, at least on the surface. Maybe the Sith are behind it, and the Jedi get close to figuring it out, only to not figure it out?

    Who knows? I can't critique something that hasn't been revealed. But I do think it is smart to get away from the Skywalkers. You can do Jedi/Sith (maybe not in the HR era). You can do force users. But, for Pete's sake, have a plan. I think that is where Kevin Feige comes in. I don't think he's going to direct or even write the film for 2022. I would expect his job is to oversee it and oversee the tie ins. Oversee the plan, so to to speak. Heck, they had an easter egg in the 2012 Avengers film featuring Thanos. That means that 8 years before Endgame released they already knew the overall plan. That's pretty cool. Hopefully he can bring that sort of vision to bear on Project Luminous.

    In Legends, this era was referred to as The Great Peace of the Republic, so the High Republic makes sense as another name for it. The Rule of Two would have been around for a half a millennia at this point as would the Ruusan Reformation, the extinction of the Rakata, the height of the Chiss Ascendency, and the establishment of the Gran Protectorate. Yoda would be 400-500 years old and Jabba would be 100-200 years old. Jabba takes up residence in his palace and begins a centuries-long blood feud between the Hutts and Tuskens. Many of the great buildings seen on Alderaan and the newly inducted world of Naboo's capital Thede are completed. The Witches of Dathomir would have been a couple of centuries in existence after their formation by fallen Jedi Allya.

    The galaxy was undergoing new colonization led by the banking clan and other guilds in an area called the Outer Expansion Zone. Two of these colonial megacorporations that enslaved and oppressed their new subjects were the Trade Federation and the Expansionist Oligarchy.

    Meanwhile, most interestingly for us, potentially, is the Mandalorian Excision in which the Mandalorians experienced the devastation of their territories by the Jedi and Republic forces after the newly empowered Mandalorians refused to part from their traditional warrior ways and join the Republic outright. The Jedi conducted a preemptive attack on the Mandalorians on Concorde Dawn, Ordo, Fenel, and Mandalore. The damage we see in Rebels and Clone Wars comes directly from the intense bombing from that conflict. This cataclysmic event crystalized the hatred of the Jedi by many Mandalorians and split the society into two factions, the traditionalists and the New Mandalorians (pacifists).

    Seriously people think Kevin Feige is a good option to produce SW?

    Before Marvel Universe I had a few films with the lowest rating but the last years the list has increased thanks to the superhero universe.

    My love for Taika is not recent, like most of the people seems to have discovered now. I follow Taika since the hilarious Flight of the Conchords and love all he has done so far. But seriously, Thor Ragnarok (I saw it yestarday) is ridiculously bad, absurd and embarrassing, like some other Marvel movies (Iron Man 3? Infinity War? Black Panther? Thor Dark World? Captain America: First Avenger?.....). But that's not a Waititi's problem. That's a producer problem. And here you are smart enough to know that some producers put a lot of money to make movies, decide what is has to be done and told, but they really know nothing about cinema. They are not artists, they are businessmen. They know how to move ridiculous masses, general public and make a lot of money, but not make competent stories.

    The problem of marvel movies, in my personal opinion (am not representing anyone), is the large gag-scenes always break the possible serious and emotive plot points. Endgame, which I also saw it 2 days ago for the first time, it's another clear exemple. They try to give emotion but the continuous large gags (not simple jokes, minutes of gags) kills the emotionality every ten minutes with absurd/silly/awful dialogs and situations.
    I suppose I will get my disagree buttons but sorry, it's not my type of cinema I want in SW. I don't want to feel embarrassed again with SW. They have the time to make things right. Natural measured humor or serious projects from start to finish. Otherwise, it will be the end of SW as we know.

    Just my opinion.

    *shrug* Thor Ragnarok is easily my favorite MCU movie. Utter camp perfection! (Same goes for The Mandalorian s1 ep.8, by the way).

    You're admittedly not a Marvel fan. The idea that they're not competent stories is silly. That aside, no one can question the success of those films. The success of those films comes primarily from their ability to connect with people. Suggesting that the producers don't know anything about cinema is comical.

    I don't love all the Marvel films, but Lucasfilm would be lucky to have such a well told, interconnect story that appeals to new and old fans.

    You are obviously not a fan of the MCU. No problem. I wasn't for a while. Actually for a long while. But I came around. Why? Because the fact that they told this massive story over what, 22 films? That's one hell of an accomplishment. Now not every film is equally great, but whether someone likes a particular film is pretty subjective. I really enjoyed Dark World as well as Infinity War (I liked it much more than End Game) as well as Doctor Strange and both Ant Man films. And I was never a big fan of the whole "super hero" genre of comics, even as a kid. Heck I had friends who wanted to play super hero RPGs back in the late 80s, but I was never interested (and I've played D&D since 1982, but that's a side note).

    I think Kevin Feige is good enough to make different films. I don't think he's a one trick pony. I think you are right, the humor that we get in the MCU doesn't belong in Star Wars. Sure, there are funny moments in Star Wars, but not to the level of the MCU. Having said that, I can't criticize KF for a film he hasn't even made yet.

    All is quiet on the Lucasfilm front. Luminous announcement is next Monday. It seems impossible for them to keep the film director secret until Celebration. However, if that person is Jon Favreau they might be able to keep it a secret. He's already working on the TV series and that would cover any involvement he would have with the film. He is attached to Jungle Book 2 as a co-director. Last I heard that was being released at the end of the year?

    Given all the goodwill with The Mandalorian, Favreau seems like a slam dunk choice to kick off a new era of Star Wars.

    Seems like a lot work to do Mando and jump start a film.

    The second season of Mando starts airing in October. So he'll have time to work on a film. He did Lion King while producing the first season so the idea that it would prevent him from working a on a film that would likely start filming early 2021 doesn't really compute. Is he gonna stop making films as long as Mando is a series?

    Well, we are six days away from the Project Luminous reveal. I would love to hear some of your expectations for what the announcement is. Here is what I’m expecting to be announced Feb 24th:
    -Project Luminous is a series of both novels and comics, that will eventually include video games.
    -All future films, including the 2022 film, will be based in this timeline.
    -The timeline will be High Republic, 400 BBY.
    -stories will be Jedi-heavy, and the names of a few book characters will be released. Book characters may/may not translate into films.
    -Jedi will have different abilities unseen thus far (similar to the MSW rumor a month or so ago).

    Other things that I expect to be revealed that I do NOT want to be true:
    -the whole Jedis-exploring -Outer-Rim storyline.
    -the whole notion of using giant spaceships as “beacons.”
    -the majority of Project Luminous will take place far from civilization planets (ie, the Prequels.)

    I think you're pretty much on point. The last point about Jedi abilities is probably right, but I doubt they'll discuss what would be essentially be outlined in stories. I doubt they mention films at this point. They'll probably just say they're doing interconnected stories set in a new time period that will be explored with book/comics.

    My expectations are pretty low. This is first and foremost and publishing reveal. They never said anything official about movies or hell even games. Does anyone think it is odd that we're less then a week away and no official announcement from Lucasfilm yet? All we have is outsider info that it's the 24th. Don't get your hope's up.

    The official announcement was announced a while ago. I actually find this news more exciting than the movies because 1) new timeline, new era... finally
    2) disney/Lucasfilm is showing they are making a better effort to create a complex story through communication amongst seasoned authors
    3) books will ease us into the films, so We will actually know the state of the galaxy before 2022 film.

    The weekly Star Wars News show mentioned a little something about the announcement on Monday.

    What do you think the "Until" means ?? Also, something I have missed out, Yoda says "Luminous beings are we", I'm sure it must be related.

    I'm in europe I won't have the answer until tomorrow .. :'(

    If I were to speculate wildly, the "until... Project Luminus" thing seems to indicate that this new setting will feature a new kind of "force"? Perhaps some kind of artificial "force" that wasn't created by the living things (i.e. not "the force of others" as the concept was first known as in Lucas' drafts). So, perhaps theres a "Project Luminous" in this new story cycle where someone is trying to create artifical force somehow? I dunno... it sounds a bit dumb, but reading ONLY that poster, you can chose to see it as that ;)

    I still feel like this panel is significant.


    [​IMG]

    "Beacon" in the center of the "dark zones".

    "Signal", helping "travels find their way"...

    Project "Luminous"...



    I dunno, seems like this space station may be key somehow.

    Wild thoughts and fantasies to wait these last hours out ^^:

    Then what if this was a beacon attracting force sensitives/users who don't know about it or only little. I was checking on the wookipedia in canon there isn't much on how the jedi order structure was between the end of the old republic (~1000 BBY jedi sith war) and the current saga.
    It would be a rather diminished order that wants to grow or a strong one not willing new sith to pop up (who didn't not know about the sith surviving and the rule of two at this point) . They would have had this project luminous to bring in and train force senstives and prevent them from turning. This would tie in with the poster that is online ... :)

    I like that beacon idea, hope it's something like that !
