I think we need to realize that streaming services are less about good or satisfying content, but rather just content. Of course good content may result, but that's not the point. They just need to keep subscribers and refresh their interest with the next thing.

Well the Obi Wan show only has two episodes so far but so far it's good. The Mandaiorean is good, Boba Fett is okay. So they have a decent record so far, IMO.

Nope, just an Astromech.

Their primary function is to serve as navigation calculators for lightspeed. It isn't the people doing that math, it's the droids. So they think very fast. Anyone that smart is going 5o be frustrated by dullards.

Maybe, but so far Disney has earned their subscription from me. I'm satisfied.

Has this not been pretty clear for well over a year? Though admittedly it been just confirmed at the SW Celebration con. Evidently a trailer and clips were shown. On included the mural Sabine created in the last episode of Rebels.

I've said this before, but the Feloniverse is all mortar, no brick.  It's all about filling in the continuity gaps of the Skywalker Saga instead of creating something new.  Which is fine I guess, but at some point they're going to run out of new ways to show us Order 66.

Especially given its Flash Gordon inspiration. These streaming TV shows are modern versions of pulp magazine serials.

Right because Mando and Fetts stories filled in all the story holes left by the sequels.

I really enjoyed :Rebels and :Resistance, and when there started to be darksaber tie-ins on the live action shows I loved it (always very curious about the mythology of that thing)

Well that and the that there was an intentional character arc.   A lot if people don't like immature characters. People liked her more as she learned and came of age.

Yes, I did. Which I why I know you don't know what you are talking about. There was no beginning of the First Order and it was one scene showing clones. Snoke being a clone is no big question. It is a one sentence footnote.

clkeagle: Or maybe TV is the format it was always meant to be presented in.

Yeah, no. Star Wars was always intended to be a movie because that's how Lucas envisioned and created it. And after the first one became a big enough phenomenon to justify making sequels, that's when he tacked on the numbering system and decided Star Wars should be a series of trilogies. Even after the Prequels failed to impress, Star Wars was still considered a theatrical property that just happened to have less important TV and book material connected with it.

It doesn't work better as a TV property now because "that's what it was always meant to be", but because Disney has a better team making the shows than they had for the movies. Like Star Trek, Star Wars is a concept that can succeed or fail in any media, and it's done both for decades.
