Don't worry, Disney+ will do some form of this in a few years.

Heck, bring the band back together from Andor. Have Luthen fund the mission, recruit Bix, Kino, Melshi, Vel, Cinta, and Dedra onto the team, with Dedra as the former Imperial looking to redeem herself (OR IS SHE?!).

I suspect he's doomed, either right at the beginning of Season 2 or somewhere in the climax of Season 2.
I'm fine with that, as long as they don't make him a Jedi.  This is the first Star Wars project to be nearly bereft of Jedi.  It's better without them.

We also shades of this in the Aftermath books and Cara Dune was part of a similar effort.  Too bad Gina Carano went insane (or exposed her insanity to the world).

This is always the tragedy of prequel type materials. There is a finite corner you have to write in. Old West End Games Star Wars pretty much forbid you from ever being as powerful as any of the main cast, but particularly in the Jedi department.

bostonguy: Maybe Disney should have a two-pronged strategy for Star Wars: One set of entertainment programming for adults, and another set for children.


The first one, Episode 4, despite what Lucas has said was never meant for children.  Yes kids could see it, but think of children's programing at the time; Scooby-Doo and the other Hanna-Barbera shows, Fat Albert, Sesame St., Captain Kangaroo, and Mr. Rogers.  There is no way Lucas' vision was anywhere close to any of that.  Hell, the Disney movies released closest prior were Robin Hood and Bed-knobs and Broomsticks.

Having said that, I agree with bostonguy but with a qualification of can there be something in between as well?  When I think "Star Wars" for children, I unfortunately have the two Ewoks specials and the "Droids" and "Ewoks" cartoons stuck in my head.

I would be soooo down for that. Interestingly, the Wraith Squadron novels (which spun off the Rogue Squadron series) kinda delved into dealing justice to former Imperial assholes.

In the waning days of WW2, there was a joint US/British operation called Orion, IIRC, the purpose of which was to hunt down and execute, extrajudiciously, the architects and implementers of Nazi war crimes before they could flee Germany. They hunted down Nazi officers and, in German, read them the standing order for the German Army to execute any Allied paratrooper on sight and asked if they understood what was just said. Then they would shoot the captive in the head after they answered in the affirmative.

Yeah, I wanted to mention this. It's there, if they want to pick that fruit. Avoid most of the stories directly, of course, especially where Kevin J. Anderson is involved, but there's the bones of characters and plots in there, and laid onto the framework they built out for Andor, it would make for a compelling number of stories taking place in the lived-in Star Wars universe that we became engrossed with.

One of the failings of some of the Star Wars prequel/sequel movies was that it seemed like the entire environment was one uncanny valley step away from the dirty "realness" of the original trilogy. It was one bit that Lucas and his successors had to really nail, but instead all we got was the occasional dips into tropey underbellies that lacked grit (PODCAR Racing!, 50s Diner, in the future!, Deathstick guy nightclub!). Nothing felt lived in...

Andor felt lived in. None of the dirt, rust, mold, or grime felt like it was just painted on for effect. No hoity toity Jedis slumming it up with the poors to investigate a crime against one of the wealthy elite... People just trying to go about their lives and getting punched in the face by a fascist Sith wizard's state police for their trouble.

Co-writers Gary Whitta and Chris Weitz conceptualized a Rogue One sequel show that would have involved a "Mossad-style Rebel team" tracking down fleeing Imperial war criminals after the fall of the Empire.

I think Disney could wash some of the stink off the sequel trilogy if they did this, but made it about Finn and those other stormtrooper defectors tracking down the First Order goons who kidnapped children to build their army.

Andor has so much detail, worldbuilding, character complexity, and themes that I am shocked something like this actually came out of Disney's Star Wars. I compare it to The Expanse, with its myriad factions, characters, motivations, and pacing. It is astonishingly good.

There's one detail that, for whatever reason, I really liked and made me realize that this show was high quality.

It happened in the episode where Andor goes to prison. There's a bunch of expo dumping about how the prison system works, and when Andor goes to bed you can see a console in the wall with a digital readout that says something like "2185". Kino explains those are Andor's credits.

The scene then cuts to the next morning and Andor has just woken up and is finishing his breakfast. He puts his fork and tray away, and the readout now says "2155" -- indicating that his breakfast cost 30 credits.

It doesn't mean anything to the greater plot, but I love little details like that. It tells us that the showrunners care about what they're doing, and make the effort to portray everything as real and logical.

I can't wait for season 2, and I hope Disney execs keep their stupid filthy hands off the project and not suggest anything farking dumb like "Okay, Darth Vader has to show up in a giant spider and fight Andor in a speeder...."

That was what I thought... the "next day" was subtitled "30 shifts later". 6*365=2190, so Andor spent a few days in local lockup and in transit.

I'm not at all bothered by an earth-year as "standard"... it's been long explained the "Long time ago..." stuff was quoted from the "Journey Of The Whills" - written long after the stories take place, for dramatic effect. My theory is that it's our far-flung future, Moore's Law is dead (tech base is stagnant, but at the same time, the highest tech is somewhat normalized), and many of the "races" you see are actually descended from genetically modified humans who colonized hostile/alien environments. While planets like Coruscant have become highly developed, the vast expansion of humans and other aliens has resulted in many living hard-scrabble lives. Energy is somewhat cheap and available, but basic sustenance is a different matter on many worlds.

Of course, it's all just fantasy anyway, but I'm one of those people that likes to understand the hows and whys of things.

It's actually a sci-fi convenience more than anything.

However realistic it may be, it is obnoxious when sci-fi writers come up with their own units for things. Unless it's instrumental to the plot, it's okay for characters to use conventions that we all readily understand. "I'll meet you there in 30 minutes" is a perfectly fine bit of dialogue if the point is to move the story along. "I'll meet you there in 30 foofraims" is a stopper because then the writer has to explain what a froofraim is.

Same with Han's "I'll see you in hell!" despite the fact that there might not even be a concept of hell in SW religions, it's a handy euphemism that the audience understands.

I'm not a fan of Star Wars books.
But I saw this at Ollie's for $2.99 so I was ok, can't pass it up.

I'm not at the beginning (she just got captured by the guy she was going to recruit (I don't remember anyone's name yet)) but so far it's goofy.

I can't 'read' space battles.  "The tie fighter banked to the left so I thrusted to the right and my droid beeped yada yada yada and so on and so on"

But I'm going to push through it....

I have a bit of trouble parsing those fights as well, so I mostly just skim them, but Freed focuses more on the pilot's mental and physical state than the tactics which makes it a little bit more palatable.

That said, the final book of the series is one of the best Star Wars books imo so totally worth it.

The more I rewatch Rogue One, the more The Space Dirty Dozen becomes my favorite Star Wars film.  It does what Rian Johnson tried to do (completely subvert Star Wars tropes) and makes it better for it while still feeling very Star Warsy (rather than ending up like TLJ)

skyotter: The space battle in Rogue One was everything I ever wanted in a Star Wars space battle.


There's a good supercut of just the space battles floating around YouTube that's always a fun watch.  The movie had the right kind of fan service by just delivering the goods people hope for, like actual star wars.
