At what point do you realize you have to let something go?

Agreed. Several people in this thread need to move on from the franchise and leave it to those millions of folk still enjoying it.

Like Darwinian said, it's a question of respecting people. We know when they fucked up and when they are just trying to make us forget. It's a very cringeworthy feeling and move on their part.

So guys, this is looking very likely to be accurate now. A recent chapter of the Kylo Ren comic used the term High Republic, saying that it was a time where the Jedi were very active throughout the Galaxy. High Republic has never been used in Star Wars canon or in the old EU/Legends before, the first Galactic Republic was only ever called the Republic or the Old Republic before now. The fact that they chose now, shortly after this leak, to coin the term High Republic as part of Star Wars canon, makes the leak look very likely to be accurate.



So, this was announced earlier today: https://youtu.be/xCat5fXRyyU



Nice to see it announced. Hopefully the movies and game also happen.

lol @1:25! They need to remind themselves that Star Wars should have droids, space battles, the force, etc. in it!? Also putting such irrelevances like representation/diversity/not pro-war does not give me hope they'll produce quality. Seriously, not pro-war? You are making entertainment, not a guide on how we should live our lives.

You do realize that most, if not all, of the greatest movies and TV shows have some sort of moral message behind them, right?

Yes like Family Matters, Saved by the Bell and Full House.  Always a message at the end too bad I never listened.

I know that most pieces of media have some sort of message or moral, but after the failure of the new trilogy and all of the fighting against the fans, the last thing you want to show is that one of your priorities is preaching to them again. It makes them look like their agendas are first and foremost, before even story or quality.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

What really is the new trilogy preaching? Other than TLJ, none of the sequel trilogy movies have any sort of depth (becase they're JJ Abrams movies--he despises movies with depth). Really, I cannot think of any kind of message that's being sent to the audience in Ep. 7 or 9. It's just all jokes and explosions. Ep. 8 has a message, but it's a bit muddled. It's all about failure, and not taking yourself too seriously. But, the other two? Nothing. People like to say they're "preachy" because they have a female lead and a black guy as another main character. Damn, that's preachy.



A franchise that has been creatively bankrupt for 30 years needs to milk it more. Yay? I used to only just like the originals pre edits. After decades of whoring, I grew to truly fucking despise everything Star Wars since the prequels. This franchise is not that good FFS to warrant all this crap.
