Issue 1: HR addresses the complete lack of guardrails among any cliff/sudden drop, of which there seem to be many.

That was the Empire's greatest evil. OSHA violations.

Insisting The Mandalorian is good is on par with insisting the election is rigged.

Minus the consequences.

The delusions tho.. They're the same.

I accept this as 100% true, because no one ever just goes on the internet and lies. Especially about Star Wars.

grumpfuff: kyleaugustus: Okay, we have the Republic/Old Republic.  There's the New Republic.  There's the Galactic Empire, the Imperial Remnant (which is a crappy name that makes me think of the Bolshevik/Menshevik scheme).  Thrawn had his Empire of the Hand, or whatever.

What the heck is a High Republic?  Is this some nation above the galactic plain?

It's like a normal Republic, but with a lot of drugs.


It's when Obi Wan tried to get off the junk but kept on hallucinating young padawan learners on the ceiling.

LesserEvil: These idiots sound like the Republicans in DC right now.

Sure, the Mandalorian is to blame for everything bad. Sure.

They should be riding a renewed, refreshed fandom, but instead are grousing about The Mandalorian stealing their thunder? What a bunch of babies.

I enjoy all Star Wars. For me, the problem with High Republic is it looks like more Young Adult Book crap. Is that what it is?

Honestly, I'm sad at the dearth of Star Wars books lately. The EU sucked in some ways, but at least they pumped out a lot of material.


Just to be clear again everything in that article is totally made up.   Just as a quick example, it mentions that THR is underperforming.  Light of the Jedi was #1 on NYT Best seller, A Test of Courage was #2 (for kids).  The first THR comic pre-sold over 200,000 copies (which is a lot).  By every measure, it's been a resounding success, probably more than Lucasfilm expected since less than 10 Star Wars books in history have ever held the #1 spot.

As for YA?  The answer is yes and no.  Light of the Jedi is an adult novel and has the feel of any other adult Star Wars novel.  There's actually almost zero romance in it.  All the main characters except 1 is over the age of 20.  It's a story about the Jedi Order vs bad guys who are not the Sith.  That said, there are Young Adult novels planned for this initiative.  The first one is called Into the Dark and comes out in February.  But to be honest, I'd be hard pressed for find significant differences between Adult and YA Star Wars novels outside the general age of the characters.  One of the most well regarded Star Wars novels in the last decade (Lost Stars) is a YA novel.

This is high level bullshiat made up by shiatty YouTubers desperate for clicks.  One of them is named "Doomcock" and wears a Dr Doom mask for christ sake. The other one is Grace Randolph, the same lady who made up the rumor that Pedro Pascal walked off the set of The Mandalorian.  Stop giving these people the time of day.  It's like greenlighting a panhandler ranting about the end of days on a street corner.

The Story Group doesn't develop stories, they only help maintain and drive continuity.  Pablo Hidalgo, one of the lead story group guys is literally writing a reference book for The Mandalorian.  Half of these guys have been working with Dave since he started at Lucasfilm.

And Light of the Jedi (the first High Republic book) is #1 on the NYT, so I wouldn't get all excited that Mando is the only thing Star Wars fans care about.

buntz: I am sick to high Hell of Jedis.
Loved the originals.
Hated the Prequels (Jedi....Jedi as far as the eye can see)
Sequels still Jedi focused but not half as bad as the Prequels.
Most comics:  Jedi
Clone Wars: a LOT of Jedi
Rebels:  although I did love it, started off excited because no Jedi.  Then..... Jedi.
Mandalorian:  Fantastic!  Love it.  Oh.  Jedi. OH!  MAIN Jedi.  Again.

Now High Republic?  More ALL Jedi.

I really would love a non-Jedi Star Wars universe story.

So what was their new storyline? The Gungans created "Life Day" and a splinter group of Ewoks wanted to stop it because it spreads cheer and happiness throughout the galaxy?

If you're actually interested, the High Republic is just an era of the Galactic Republic where everything was sunshines and rainbows.  Like the way people think about post WW2 america (minus the cold war and horrific racism).
