Forums - Movies Discussion - Project Luminous: The Future of Star Wars, details leaked

The highlights of these 2 leaks:

  • Project Luminous is a new multimedia project which will encompass film, video game, comics, novels, and possibly television
  • Project Luminous is set 300-400 years before The Phantom Menace, when Yoda is much younger, the Sith are in-hiding and using the Rule of Two to survive, and the Republic is at the height of it's power, during what is known as the High Republic era.
  • Claudia Gray, Justina Ireland, Daniel José Older, Cavan Scott and Charles Soule are in charge of the comic and book portion of the project, which was teased at Celebration 2019
  • D.B. Weiss and David Benioff (Game of Thrones) were originally going to be in charge of the film portion of this project, but were unable to because their $200m Netflix deal was going to take too much of their time, so other directors will be in charge of making the movies
  • The planned Rian Johnson trilogy seems to be unrelated to this project
  • The project will begin with a new Star Wars video game which is designed to set up the new time period
  • Official details are rumored for reveal later this month, with Luminous project starting with the video game which will release in 2021
  • The plot will be about a group of heroes (Jedi and non-Jedi) being sent into the Unknown Regions of space in order to chart them, and each movie will focus on a different character, with different strengths and weaknesses, kind of like Marvel's superhero movies. These solo movies will set up an Avengers like crossover movie where they all meet up to fight a powerful enemy, rumored to be an old Sith god
  • It isn't sure if the Old Republic movie being written by Laeta Kalogridis which was leaked last year is part of this project, therefore not being Old Republic technically (but rather High Republic), or if that is a separate project
  • It is being speculated that the Kevin Feige Star Wars movie that was announced last year might be part of this project, given his experience running a similar universe with the MCU
  • One source is reporting that their Project Luminous info comes from the same source who leaked to them that the Mandalorian would have a child character who would be with the Mandalorian throughout the series, months before The Child was officially unveiled alongside the first episode

Around the Network

Not sure what to think of Star Wars superheroes...

This sounds interesting.

Going straight for that teen / YA money again I guess.






Actually, they should probably keep the 'series' to actual shows for a while, and keep movies as one-offs of Rogue One quality until they enough time has passed and they have come up with a solid second saga.

Sure, why not? Disney has owned Star Wars for eight years and they've focused primarily on directly before and after the original trilogy, in a very specific corner of space with very specific characters--for such a vast universe with literally unlimited potential, that's a ridiculous waste so if they're going in a brand new direction I say bring it on. That is, as long as they don't just literally rip off the MCU model. The Guardians of the Galaxy influences were obvious and nauseating in The Last Jedi. Leave all that non-joke bullshit and quips every two minutes with Marvel.

*My signature from 2011 which I'm too lazy to change*

Currently awaiting the arrivals of:
Kid Icarus Uprising
Resident Evil: Revelations
Tekken 3D: Prime Edition
Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D
Beyond the Labyrinth
Heroes of Ruin
Luigi's Mansion 2

Rian Johnston still has a trilogy?

Everything sounds cringeworthy

More Jedi pandering again. blah

At this point, just make the force avengers canon and put lightsabers and force users in the next guardians movie
