So the rumor is that we're getting a series of movies based 400 years before the prequel trilogy. It might feature numerous amount of heroes including a young Yoda. It's not quite the Old Republic but it's the High Republic era with thousands of Jedi and Sith. Could build on the Darth Bane story and build up to the rise of Darth Plagueis and his apprentice Sheev Palpatine. Great time to be a Star Wars fan.
All licensed products are canon. They made a bunch of prequel books. There is a count dooku audiobook that is very nicely done and is mostly about Dooku's life as a Jedi. So you maybe right.

However with Solo and the sequel trilogy changing hyperspace canon in the way that it did. It maybe better to start with the Great Hyperspace War. Already in the new canon (Disney has been focused since 2015 on fleshing out the after and between New Hope and Empire in the comics, novels, and battlefront I and II covers empire and prequel era. The main campaign for battlefron II which I think is good is focused on Return of the Jedi so far. Iden Versio's backstory covers from Rogue One to sequel period. Early days of the Empire for Video Games and also Comics. Jedi Fallen Order is supported by the Vader Comics all part of Disney Canon Timeline.

The 2020 comics time period is just before and during Empire Strikes Back. They are planning on adding Reven to canon since he was supposedly in ROS (Ive only seen the China cut so far. The only force ghost not completely blurred was a luke skywalker scene. ) its a shame Daisy Ridley forsook her character because she didnt want to go with the future Disney + episodic content that can release a story over a longer period of time and redeem her halfassed written but very well acted chatacter. I would have liked to see a Disney + show with Rey on Dagobah or something and Luke's Force Ghost giving her actual training with a cameo appearance of Yoda and Qui Gon giving advice. Maybe even having Ian from shameless make an appearance with his Jedi character also helping rebuild the Jedi Order.

This Star Wars Universe building is going strong in 2020. Maybe we will start seeing more old republic comics, novels or video games. As there was a stink about Revan being made canon.

[COLOR="Wheat"]The problem with the aforementioned rumors is that Disney itself has (so far...) declared that there will be one and only one Canon ...
... and ...

Incorrect. Licensed products are also considered canon. All Marvel Comics Del Rey (penguin house too) and EA titles made after the Disney Acquisition are canon.

They released a Count Dooku audio drama that is the cannon on his Jedi training, how he became a Count ultimately leaving the Jedi Order. Dooku was one of Yoda's apprentices and Master to Qui Gon. Dooku's former apprentice got him interested in prophecies as Dooku was interested in them early on. Dooku was also friends and a Crech mate of Siphodias. Who he manipulated into making the clone army. The first Jedi to come into contact with the Sith is Dooku. As part of his plan to create the Galactic Empire. Thats all Disney Canon not part of the movies.

The people saying Disney is making a mockery of Star Wars also probably was only into the movies and not the extended canon which really didnt take off until the early 90's. A lot of "Star Wars Fans" especially in the Fandom Menace seemed to be ignorant of Lucas Canon outside of the movies. Some just now playing KOTOR for the first time.

While the sequel trilogy was in part Disney intentionally making it bad as solo and rogue one was better movies. TGA was JJ harnessing his copy paste style of reboot. TLJ was Rian being mad JJ's gf also Rian's wife was mad at JJ. And RoS was edited to fix some outrage. (Although I would like to see the JJ cut) i think that was more to say we do comics, cartoons, tv shows right maybe the trilogy movie format is something we cant do. (Disney has said something like that recently) Lucas said it was never bound by that format. I think the sequel trilogy was Darth Mickey getting Lucas to consult on it thus making Lucas an employee. Darth Mickey wanted Lucas. Now hes on the set of the Mandalorian consulting and training Faverau.

2020 the comics are going to cover Empire. They already made stuff fleshing out Rey's character as far as comics and shorts before TFA which has endeared myself to the character. Hopefully they do more rey comics minus the Feminist SJW ideology Rian injected into it. I deny TFA beyond marketing had that. I also deny Rey was a Mary Sue. As untrained force users could do simple stuff like call a lightsaber. And her growing up on Jakku scavenging huge crumbling capital ships more than likely she has used her innate force connection to save herself more than once. Every force user after the great purge had to teach themselves control and suppression of powers as the inquitors were hunting them all down. I think the anger was more towards the marketing itself. I think the ideology seen isnt exactly there. But when the marketing and insane hateful people that would rival the sith tried to make it seem like it was woke. Thats where the anger came from. That and they were probably only into the movies not really the EU. As both sides bash legends unless it suits them. Especially when you try to communicate a lot of legends concepts about the force is making it into Disney with the complexity of the force being dumbed down because stupid ppl look down at star wars as something made for kids and not something made for all ages.

I'd personally rather have a set of movies based around the Mandalorian Wars or even all the way back to the Great Hyperspace War. I'd love to see Naga Sadow get shown off in a movie or two. Plus it'd be cool to actually see the Sith race itself have a trilogy. If you're going to do a real prequel trilogy then take it all the way back to probably the most important time period and war in galactic history.

Plus a Hyperspace War movie or movies also sets up the planet Ossus as perhaps the most important planet in the galaxy. Then that planet can be then used in future movies and spin offs as a connecting thread.

Nice of you to fantasize, but the Star Wars franchise is doomed ....

There won't any nice movie.. with beautiful storytelling, nice characters and development of those chars. there also won't be any good storyline....

Star Wars to Disney is just a big fat cow they can milk money from. All we gonna get is epic blockbuster movies with nice special effects, lots of shooting and overall shallow everything .

This new trilogy already suffered because of this and I don't see them caring about something that was never theirs to begin with .

I mean KOTOR2 's writing and storytelling alone destroys all these new movies and we are talking about a video game. I also believe that Disney will just **** on most Star Wars lore and will want to reinvent things their way.

I beg to differ. Disney cares about its image and the new sequels hit them hard. Fallen Order, The Mandalorian, and the last season of The Clone Wars are starting to sway fans back. Their streaming service will include Obi wan and Cassian Andor stories. The goal is to eventually intertwine all content in a super expanded universe like the MCU. That is something to look forward to.

Well said; I am afraid that you have foreseen the future...

Had Disney planned to deliver a really great work of Star Wars art and, simultaneously, a really lucrative (the irony!!...) Trilogy, it would have paid primarily for great stories from different professional story-writers and, secondary, from capable screen-writers. Hence it should plan to create a tank of overall stories in order to make the best choices...

The story and only that should be their first priority.
Directors, screen-writers and all should be only the second priority; let's say ... last but not least...


Alas, I watched (lately...) the expressions and the faces of both Kathleen Kennedy and Bob Iger and I ... ain't pretty sure that they are the types of guys who would care (or give a ****) for a certain Mario Puzzo, a certain ... Quentin Tarantino (of a SW Galaxy) or a certain Francis Ford Coppola and Steven Spielberg...
Not to mention a certain George Lucas!...

Unfortunately, I think you're right on the money. Notably the part in bold.

I'm not nearly so pessimistic.

Disney has produced excellent SW stories (Rogue One, Rebels, The Mandalorian).

The primary culprit i think actually isn't Disney at all, but rather Kathleen Kennedy at Lucasfilm. All the politicization in the ST (and questionable casting in Solo) can be traced back to her.

Personally I'd be delighted if they just kicked KK to the curb and gave her spot to Dave Filoni. Even if they don't though, she generally doesn't seem to involve herself in "side projects" and so I think there is still quite a bit to look forward to.

What has "politicization" nonsense to do with actual problems of the sequel trilogy being lack of coherent vision, few original ideas or direction and two directors trying too hard to retcon each others' ideas?
