Hmm....so confirmed the movies are set 30 years after ROTJ. So...this would mean 30 years after ROTJ, would mean...around the time of the NJO/Legacy era?

Erm, this is like the oldest news regarding the new movies that there is lol.

Seriously though I'm pretty sure it was announced months or weeks after the Disney buy off.

It is? What?...When? Article was just posted confirmation. I don't recall anything about them stating about anything of when the movies were gonna take place, all I just kept seeing was speculation.

But if it's already been posted of and such then...well sorry for posting old news, thought it was new.

Yeah they are basically just reiterating the only thing they have told us for sure so far lol.

Anyway though its a legitimate discussion. Legacy era is probably too far but I think it opens up the possibility of retaining New Republic, and immediate post-Endor era and then scrapping the NJO.

The biggest thing to take away from the recent announcements is that filming is still slated to start May and they seem to be staying on schedule so far.

But yeah Wolf, the time-period for these movies has been known nearly since episode VII was announced.

As for Beni, I think it is more than likely we'll see some iteration of a New Republic but I'm curious if there will still be an Imperial Remnant and if so, what role it plays (bad guy / enemy of my enemy / reluctant ally / etc...) so many options there, assuming it is present at all.
I know if you look deep into your heart- which is currently all over that tree- you'll find a way to forgive me.

Aww, geez you look like a puppy! A blonde, eviscerated puppy!

Oh...well now I feel silly.
