    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.
