    "We’ve now got our hands on a list of potential Star Wars shows that could be put into development. The five shows on the list our source provided us includes streaming series focusing on characters such as Princess Leia (young), Captain Phasma, The Knights of Ren, Rose Tico, and the big standout that caught our eye was one for Sith Lord Darth Bane.

    To be crystal clear this is very very early days and these are not shows about to go into production these are just ideas they’re considering internally at Lucasfilm/Disney. More titles could be on their overall list be these are some that have come our way."

    The Knights of Ren, yes please. Yes on a Rose focused show!

    Some interesting choices to say the least. There were also seperate rumors for a Lando show (possibly a Lando and Han show), a Poe and Finn show, and a Qi’ra show. All of these sound like they could be promising, though Darth Bane grabs my attention the most. Imagine a show retelling the Darth Bane trilogy into canon, with each season adapting each novel. I don’t think that they’d have to change too much about them either. Knights of Ren could be really cool too. They wouldn’t necessarily have to get Adam Driver back (even if I and most other people would prefer them to) so long as he’s wearing his helmet. It could explore what they were up to during TFA and TLJ and probably even some of their backstory.

    Nothing but fake news to bait those clicks these days, at least this time it isn't about someone being fired!

    The only show that could potentially be interesting from this list would be Bane or the Knights of Ren. We got Phasma's entire story already (granted not from her perspective), Leia would confine us to the same era of storytelling we have been stuck in for a while now and runs the risk of suffering the same fate as Solo (I loved the movie but just toying with the idea of recasting an iconic role begs the trolls to come out of hiding), and Rose is, well... Rose.

    A Solo era show picking up from where the movie left off with the returning cast would be AMAZING though

    It sounds like Disney/LFL floating some trial balloons to see how the fan base reacts. I'm with you. A couple of those shows scream "unoriginal, bankrupt of ideas" while a couple sound cool as heck. Darth Bane? Sign me up. It would get us out of the Empire era (finally) and could be really cool. Knights of Ren? Perhaps. Rose Tico??? I'll pass. A series set immediately after "Solo" and based on the criminal underworld which includes Darth Maul? I'm cool with that, even if it is Empire Era.

    As pointed by Jordan Maison the current "development" phase of these shows is "what about this?". Lucasfilm definitely has extensive plans for multiple TV shows but, so far, none of them are actually in works. On a more personal note, I wouldn't mind a show about Rose Tico, for example. I like Rose and really like Loan/Kelly, but there has to be more to the pitch than "Rose Tico." What is it going to be about, what will be the main theme, storyline, etc. A single character is not enough to make a compelling story.

    Here is the tweet I mentioned:

    A lot of these sound totally up my alley, but I'm kind of concerned with all of this news coming out at once (assuming it's even true, to begin with).

    Shifting perspectives a bit just for context, I've enjoyed the DC movies well enough- they're not perfect, but I think fanboy responses have been far too polarized to really be an accurate measure of the actual films' qualities. But one of my biggest frustrations with DC is their "throw the spaghetti at the wall and see what sticks" method of announcing projects.

    To explain, here are the DC films that have come out since 2013 (roughly six years).

    upload_2019-2-19_14-39-0.png

    Now, here are the films apparently in production for release in the next few years:

    upload_2019-2-19_14-39-33.png

    Now, here are the films that have been teased or announced to some extent, but currently have no production status (and may well be stuck in production hell, if not outright cancelled).
    upload_2019-2-19_14-41-22.png
    Here's a link to the article, since the text is super small.

    It's not a good look to just leak a ton of stuff, and only follow through on a fraction of it at best. I can't help but think that maybe it's a strategic way of gauging public interest in projects before putting the dollars and effort in earnest, but it makes a studio looks disorganized and without a solid plan.

    Going back to Star Wars, I truly hope that these series come out, because they sound super fun. But I am concerned that, like the possibility of an Obi Wan or Boba Fett movie, maybe these leaks were just to see what people may be interested in. And as much as I love all things in the galaxy far far away, I can't help but point out that we already have Resistance, The Mandalorian, the Cassian Show, Clone Wars, and more already. Obviously more is better, but is it really realistic to have all of these leaked shows on top of what's already out or announced?

    That being said...

    Yeah. Screw it. Give Rose six seasons and a movie.

    Why don't make an Anthology tv show with different seasons instead, like True Detective or Fargo? 10 episodes for season and don't get bored with long shows.

    With the amount of shows that seem are in the wroks, Lando, young Leia, Finn and Poe, Qi'ra, Phasma, Knights of Ren, Darth Bane, Rose Tico, Obi Wan... plus Cassian and The Mandalorian..., probably could be a great option to not saturate. Stories for all, and all happy, but not too long.
    Let's see how the firs tv SW show The Mandalorian works on tv.
    Exciting times.

    I don't think saturation/fatigue is much of a problem with Star Wars. As long as 'they' keep making interesting stories (and not just villain of the week like, IMHO, the marvel movies tend to be), then multiple shows in the SW universe would work fine. Of course, as with everything, LFL & Co. would have to make it good content to work, but I'm sure they'll manage that in such a rich and diverse franchise/setting as Star Wars.

    Oh, and a Rose Tico series could be very interesting indeed! A show about common people (Rose being as common as it gets in Star Wars) fighting to get by, their struggles informing/shining light upon the grander conflicts of the galaxy. To me, Rose and young Leia are the most interesting of these concepts by far :D

    And I want a comic spin-off after it all to answer the lingering questions!

    But for real, I'd be down for a Rose Tico show. It'd probably end up a lot like 2000's Battlestar Galactica, and that is ALWAYS a good thing.

    And Knights of Ren? YES PLEASE.

    But most importantly, these shows need to have quality. Disney can spam shows/seasons all they want, but if they aren't good, viewers won't watch. Disney needs to take a deep breath, figure out which shows are time sensitive in terms of actors and aging (i.e. Solo&Lando, Rose Tico, Cassian Andor on one side, the KoR on the other, and Obi-Wan in the middle depending on how old they want to make him). Then figure out a story, and then go all in.

    I would totally agree just for fun, even if for my part, I do not feel interested in such a story.
    To me, a more significant story to tell would be Jar Jar's one : after being a main protagonist in the first episode, he almost disappeared, just showed up to give the keys to Palp's to reach the Main Chancellor seat. We then loose his footsprints ; we barely know he will end up as a clown for orphans in Naboo.
    What happened between ?
    What were his relationship with Padme Amidala ? With Senator Palpatine ? With the others Gungans after he had been banned ? How did he lived his social and political ascent, then his sudden downfall ? was he depressed, or happy again getting back to his loneliness?
    All of this could be interesting to learn, at least to me - much more than Roses's story to be honest.

    And let's enjoy... between the first annoucement of such a movie, to the day the movie would be released on screen, we would witness how the internet should die.... with thunderous howlings :) :) :)

    To be fair, we don't really know what her story would entail yet.

    And as an added bonus, it would presumably flesh out the Sequel era, which is something that pretty badly still needs to happen.

    It's a show about Rose and Paige Tico chronicling their upbringing to their time with the Resistance and Paige's unfortunate passing in TLJ.
    Told non-linearly, cutting between a present time Rose telling stories to Poe, Finn and Rey. Similar to Young Indiana Jones.

    A glimpse of life in the New Republic and how the rise of the FO impacted peoples of the galaxy.
    What it's like to live through the rise of a dominant evil super power

    Rose conveys the impact and general life experience to her three friends.
    Poe, who grew up under privilege and in war. Knowing the Skywalker/Solo/Organa group gave Poe a cause and access to it

    Finn, a child taken and raised to be a soldier, never knowing the other side of life.

    Rey, someone seeking family and belonging hearing stories of having a family and losing it.

    Just started watching "Rule of Two" from Collider and withing 10 minutes I had to turn it off. The reason is an issue for the Star Wars fandom, they started going all negative that Disney has no direction for Star Wars and these rumors are proof. It probably means Ep9 will just ignore Ep8 really happened, etc. etc. I mean come on in a creative enterprise like Disney/LFL people likely are encouraged to brainstorm ideas. I am certain many of these have been suggested by someone and then some say not a bad idea, some say are you kidding me, etc. etc. Then some move forward and some are never heard from again.

    Somehow somewhere it became "Star Wars has no direction, no planning" if LFL doesnt share with the fans super early what they are thinking about. I asked in another thread what other franchise does what the "No plan" people say that Disney/LFL is doing with Star Wars.

    Collider is pretty terrible. Have not watched a single Jedi Council video of theirs since TFA premiered. I did watch one Rule of Two episode (about two minutes at least) the host was with some guy in a hood who apparently runs Collider. That dude was unbearable. Their views of went into the tank as well so I guess a lot of people are jumping off that ship.

    EDIT: Now if they had Napzok as the full time host every week, I would much more likely to tune in.

    Just to be clear, in my earlier post I definitely didn't mean to imply that Star Wars has no plan. Despite the fact that we have an entire thread dedicated to discussing that idea, I think the theory of LFL running Star Wars like a first year college student gliding by is ridiculously naive. That's just not how movies are made.

    I was just meaning that, if these rumors are true, I'm concerned with the bloat of leaked content. If it's all made, great, but it seems like there's a lot to juggle right now.

    It's basically a show they do so they cover their bases with the fans who Vhlor about Jedi Council being too "Pro-Disney"
    I found this place through Collider. Now I barely watch it. Napzok is great and he's really the only reason to watch the Council now.

    Just an observation: Assuming (and it is a HUGE assumption) that all of these possibilities are REAL possibilities, does it not feel (and to be fair I just watched the first 3.5 minutes of that same video) a bit "scatterbrained"? I mean, you have as possibilities:
    1. young Leia
    2. Lando
    3. Knights of Ren
    4. Rose Tico
    5. Finn and Poe
    6. Darth Bane
    7. Obi-Wan miniseries?
    8. The Mandalorian
    9. Cassian Andor
    Combine that with the films announced (and not announced but rumored to be in/under production at some point in the last 4 years):
    1. Episode VII: The Force Awakens
    2. Star Wars Story: Rogue One
    3. Episode VIII: The Last Jedi
    4. Star Wars Story: Han Solo
    5. Star Wars Story: Boba Fett
    6. Star Wars Story: Obi-Wan
    7. Episode IX: Name unknown
    8. Rian Johnson Trilogy
    9. Game of Thrones Trilogy

    Now obviously some of these films died the usual Hollywood death. TONS of films get "started" and die in preproduction for whatever reason. Some of them may have been changed over to, say "The Mandalorian" or perhaps the Obi-Wan miniseries. At least with the films, it does seem a bit like they are just jumping around. So far none of the "Story films" has really done anything to flesh out the saga films, something I think they should have done, and represents a lost opportunity now that they are apparently not doing the A Star Wars Story films anymore.

    As for those shows, they seem to be all over the place. Personally, I think inside LFL/Disney they should be brainstorming and what not. Smart move. But just based on this it doesn't seem like there is a plan. Such a plan could be:
    1. Develop a series (or two) that fleshes out the ST era, or leads up to the ST era.
    2. Determine the era the GOT guys new trilogy will be set in.
    3. Develop media to flesh out said trilogy, be it comics, novels, TV or all three.

    Now there is nothing out there to show they aren't doing this. But, in a vacuum, it simply appears they are shooting blindly in the dark. Personally, I hope not. But we don't have ANY information to say they are nor to say they aren't. But we do know that so far the films at least, made it appear they are just jumping around. Heck, the way they've hired directors/writers appears the same. Like why hire Lord/Miller if you weren't going to give them control? They should have known those guys would take an "interesting" direction with Solo. Personally I would have gone with an old hand myself, but that's just me. But the hiring/firing of Lord and Miller, the Edwards drama on Rogue One, the firing of Colin Treverrow, the supposed disagreements with JJ... It does seem there is smoke to this fire.

    If I were in charge I'd do the Obi-Wan mini series and I'd stick with the Mandalorian and I'd do the Knights of Ren as a series. The rest of it, while I like some of the ideas, just feels like they are spitballing and hoping to come up with something good. Id see what era the GOT guys are working in, see what they are doing, and look for opportunities to flesh that out via the streaming service, or though reviving the "A Star Wars Story" idea (although I never liked that subtitle myself).

    And I should say, I am looking forward to Cassian Andor as I love Diego Luna and think the character would be awesome as part of a Cold War type spy drama. But to me it does look a bit all over the place and it does appear to lack direction.
