    I agree, but as long as we get slow space travel, a change in aesthetics, and lightsabers powered by cords connected to belt batteries*, then I'm good :) In other words, the tech issue would not be an insurmountable problem to deal with.

    *Where did I see this? A tales of the Jedi story?

    That's actually one thing that I don't want to see, protosabers. I'm not sure why, but that visual makes me think of jedi and sith walking around with proton packs from Ghostbusters. And though when I began replying, it seemed ridiculous I am now totally on board with this idea! :D

    Old Republic as well. Seen enough in the games, time for a movie debut.

    I think the consensus is that we want something from the Old Republic era. The early times of the Jedi and Sith. I think this is a cool era to explore. Then can dip into some of the legends OR material if they want but also create a unique story as well.

    These guys are incredible at showing intrigue and conflict between factions competing for a common goal, power over the realm. They are great at showing single-minded heroes undone by betrayal and morally ambiguous survivors rise to prominence. They are great at making us root for despicable people while worrying about good-hearted companions. They can show us a big action set piece and then blow us away with a quiet moment of contemplation or understanding. And they are doing all of this while carefully and respectfully handling a beloved piece of intellectual property with a deeply devoted fanbase. When the source material ran out, they used the original writer and their best judgement to continue the story. If they have the right source material to work with, they will make something that most of us will probably enjoy.

    As most of you have mentioned, the Old Republic Era is ripe with potential. The struggle of democracy and totalitarianism could be an interesting possibility. They could also make the struggle between the light side and dark feel more balanced and ambiguous. No matter what, I'm interested to see their world building and how their design teams interpret our classic Star Wars worlds in a different era and also new worlds and civilizations we may have not yet seen.

    With all of the interest in Mandolorians, I'd be very surprised if we don't see them play a role. Maybe they are the wildcards of the series, maybe they're the focus. Maybe the film is a GoT-style series about competing clans vying for the title of Mandolore. We could see the rise or the return of the young Jedi Mandolorian from Sabine's dark saber story in Rebels. We could see the politics and the conflicts of the galaxy outside of the Mandalorian worlds shaping the motivations and the machinations of our factions in how they form alliances and whom they may betray in search of survival and power. We can meet important Jedi, Sith, and other KOTOR characters through cameos or more important roles here and see them expanded upon if cinematic focus grows to build out that world with stand-alones or parallel narrative series. Actually, the medieval Japanese period leading up to the Meiji Restoration could be an interesting historical influence for this story where an insular feudal society dominated by local warlords violently ends due to external pressure by large empires causing a rapid consolidation of power and reorganization of society under imperial rule with a nationalized identity and centralized control based on foreign industrial models.
