Once Disney Streaming is up and running, all Disney products will be run through there, which is fine, they have LOTS of library content to offer to be frank. Just keeping my kid entertained will make it worth my dime.

Ah man a Old Republic show would be awesome. Bring Revan back into canon and give him/her a proper ending. I hated how the books ended that storyline to fit it with the MMO. The mandelorian wars could be pretty cool too!

Agreed. Revan is up there with Mara Jade as characters I want re-canonized in the new Disney Canon SW.

I think we'll have to give up on Mara Jade after TLJ but Revan could still come back for sure. I think the mandelorian wars could be awesome, plenty of material for a tv show. Could bring in Exar Kun or Ulic Qel-Droma as villains as well as the mandelorians.

I could see Mara Jade being brought in, and just not as a love interest for Luke. But the character, reformed hand of the Emperor, is solid.

The Mandalorians (in my opinion) would have been the PERFECT villain/enemy for the new Saga movies instead of the Empire 2.0 (First Order)...as they are different enough to be really interesting...and they have a beef with the Jedi.

That's true, they could bring in Mara Jade in a number of ways for sure.

Like using the Mandalorians time-wise post episodes 7,8,9? That's a neat idea, I was thinking old republic times but it could be really cool to see them in the current timeline as well. Something a little different than the usual Jedi Vs. Sith would be fun.

Mara Jade is pretty inexorably set as Luke's love-interest. Skip that part and you more or less have Ventress with more hair, in which case, why not work with a new character entirely?

Exar Kun or Ulic Qel-Droma... heh, they could be made into anything, in any era, dead or alive. My EU recall is spotty but i think Kun first showed up as a ghost trying to corrupt Luke's new Jedi students before the Dark Horse comics ever told his story.

Because Mara Jade.

A little off topic but I read somewhere a couple days ago that Jango/Boba Fett are no longer canonically mandalorian, just some guys who though the armour looked cool, anyone know if this is true?
It's a little disappointing to me if it is.

Canon info: Jango (and therefore his clone Boba) Fett was born on Concord Dawn, which is a Mandalorian world, and wore Mandalorian amor once he started being a bounty hunter....this caused the New Mandalorian gov't to disavow him and say he was not Mandalorian at all. It sounds more like a political statement than an accurate one. I think Fett WAS originally Mandalorian as a result. I don't believe there is any proof either way though.

I WOULD say, however, that since Boba Fett was not raised on Mandalore in their culture or ways, that he technically can't lay claim to that heritage like his father can, since he's a clone who was raised on Genosis, and spent his teen years as a bounty hunter in and around Coruscant.

See that's what I thought but this article (wish I could remember where I read it) said that very recently the canon was changed and now they aren't related to the Mandalorians at all but just thought the armour looked cool/was useful. I don't usually trust those kind of articles but who knows with the new canon that keeps popping up.

New info on the live action show. Jon Favreau says it will take place between ROTJ and TFA, specifically 7 years after the battle of Endor. Maybe we will see some live action Rebels cameos after all? Could possibly even have Boba Fett showing up, who knows?
Since Resistance is right before TFA this is pretty soon after ROTJ so there's lots of stuff they could do.

The timeframe makes me wonder if this is potentially going to pick up the Rebels cliffhanger.

As much as I would like a further Rebels storyline, I don't think it will be that. There may be some cameos or mentions of things that happened in Rebels but I don't think it will be a direct follow up. Especially because it'd be from animated to live action, they'd have to find appropriate actors to play the characters which would be hard because they already have voice actors and what not.
As well, it's going to be their first live action show so I think they'll want to do something new with original characters as well.

Iím not a bit surprised with the timeline. Was still very much hoping they would grow a pair of manly hairy balls and give us TOR era. This 60 year timeframe is going to start burning out fans now that so much content is coming. Iím almost there.

I know, I'm really hoping one of these new movie series they're going to do are in the old republic era, tons of fans want that too it would be such a good idea.

Rebels spoiler just in case
Spoiler


How could they not? 7 years after Rotj would tie him in nicely too. He wasn't voiced, just introduced. Anyone remember Robotech? There's a lot of its influence visible in Rebels, and in some of the newer SW novels. Filoni was a fan, he loved it; which may have a bearing on the appearance of JS. In Robotech, two lead characters have a green haired kid - who takes up the fight as an adult in a following series set years later...

So that's the story. And what was the real lesson? Don't leave things in the fridge.

JS is my hope too. I LOVE Hera and Kanan so having JS in there is only going to be a boon for the show for anyone familiar with REBELS.
