    What’s “Off the rails” in the comics section? Not heard of that before.

  • April 21, 2017 at 8:40 pm

    I think they should have developed a seperate animated series to fill the void when Rebels (or any future series) is between series.
    By having two series alternating series awe would have star wars on television throughout the year.

    • April 22, 2017 at 12:30 am

      What, you don’t count the Freemaker Adventures?

      • April 22, 2017 at 1:58 am

        Freemakers is on a sperate level.

        Freemakers…. then the Films … then the animated series.

        Freemakers is the true star wars

    Need more video games. I know they are working on some and Battlefront 2 looks good but its been 4 years since EA got the exclusive contract. I won’t more Star Wars dammit.

    • April 22, 2017 at 12:29 am

      I am surprised there haven’t been more SW games. And I don’t mean mobile games. Or the Lego game.

    • April 22, 2017 at 3:13 am

      A part of me really wishes there was another Force Unleashed style of video game where you play as a Jedi. Imagine a Kylo Ren centered game. Maybe, it takes place before Ben turns to the dark side? Or perhaps in Kylo’s infancy when working under Snoke.

      • April 22, 2017 at 4:04 pm

        I still dust off the 360 every now & again & spin through some adventures w/ Starkiller & Kota. I LOVE that series…

        • April 22, 2017 at 8:07 pm

          I like the gameplay; the story I’m mixed on. I have issues with the rebel alliance and how it is portrayed and really what it means for the entire OT. Though, Sam Witwer is amazing, though as Starkiller. And I liked the characters.

  • April 21, 2017 at 8:48 pm

    Rebel Rising is YA.

  • April 21, 2017 at 9:13 pm

    what star wars really needs rather than a new tv show is a good strategy game, something like Empire at war 3

    • April 21, 2017 at 9:26 pm

      There are several. X-Wing and Imperial Assault are fantastic. And while I’ve not played Armada or Rebellion, I’ve heard they excellent.

      • April 21, 2017 at 9:51 pm

        I am sure he means good strategy video game… and I agree… Empire at War 3: Empire’s End.

        • April 21, 2017 at 10:02 pm

          Ah. Well, then I agree. I’d love to see something like the old Lucasarts Rebellion game. That was a masterpiece.

          • April 21, 2017 at 11:43 pm

            Ah! I mentioned FF’s Rebellion in my post above, but I’ve never played it. I had no idea, however, that it was based off the Lucasarts game. That pretty much seals the deal for me. I loved the old Rebellion computer game, but I must prefer tabletop games. I’m just not that into video games.

    • April 22, 2017 at 3:55 am

      With the new canon active, I’m definitely all for a reboot of Empire at War; especially with improved RTS gameplay with sequels coming after that beyond the Galactic Civil War. ^_^

    • April 22, 2017 at 10:51 am

      They’d have to make a EAW2 first.

  • April 21, 2017 at 11:09 pm

    Are we sure the Claudia Gray Leia book and the Legends of Luke Skywalker aren’t YA?

    • April 22, 2017 at 12:48 am

      The Leia book is YA and the Luke book is for younger readers, like 10+ I think.

  • April 21, 2017 at 11:34 pm

    and SW1313???? release date: never… thank you disney

    • April 22, 2017 at 5:33 am

      At some point you need to accept it and move on

  • April 22, 2017 at 1:19 am

    This year is packed with Star Wars content; cannot wait. ^_^

  • April 22, 2017 at 1:20 am

    Kind of disappointed that there isn’t a major adult novel that ties into TLJ. I was hoping for something that would give background into new characters a month or two before the film comes out. Maybe something that explores a new world that we’ll visit. Also, and I’m sure this will be announced closer to TLJ release date, but there wasn’t an announcement for an art book or anything of the sort for TLJ either.

    • April 22, 2017 at 4:12 am

      Unlike TFA, there isn’t a 30-year gap between TLJ and the movie that comes before it. there’s not much to lead up to, really.

  • April 22, 2017 at 1:55 am

    Lots of stuff for children. I guess Disney feels OK ignoring adult Star Wars fans.

    • April 22, 2017 at 3:05 am

      When I was a kid we had a ton of kid stuff. We also had great novels but there is a steady stream of that too. This doesn’t seem unusual for Star Wars.

      • April 22, 2017 at 4:28 am

        Well, I don’t know when you were a kid, so I have no idea how to respond to that. Maybe it was last year, or maybe it was 20 years ago.

    • April 22, 2017 at 3:43 am

      That’s ridiculous. Adult Star Wars fans are getting a frickin movie every single year, comics, a few novels, and a new video game that’s looking to be pretty darn good. Star Wars is essentially a kids property. Don’t be selfish.

      • April 22, 2017 at 4:26 am

        lol, you calling me “ridiculous”. If you want to think of Star Wars as a “kids property”, that’s your business. But I know that as a 10-year-old seeing the original Star Wars in the theater in 1977, it was NOT a “kids property”. I did not understand half of what they were talking about because it was not dumbed-down to me like so much of this so-called “kids property” is to children these days.

        But that fact — that I knew it was a little above my head in many respects — made it MUCH BETTER. I felt like I was seeing something great and important, not an episode of Mork and Mindy or Dukes of Hazzard.

        There are many aspects of Star Wars that are still great. But the childish direction of a vast swathe of Star Wars, as well as the politically-correct pandering that is consuming much of it, is unwanted and conformist. NO THANKS.

        • April 22, 2017 at 3:59 pm

          If at 10 years old you were confused by half of Star Wars then…

          Star Wars was never intended as an adult property. Lots of adults liked it, sure, but it was a movie for young people. Lucas said so (back in the day and as late as last week). The rating said so. The massive merchandising campaign directed almost solely to children said so. It’s not my opinion. It’s a fact. Like you, I was there at the time. It was for kids.

          But as I said earlier, grown-ups are getting more new Star Wars material than they could possibly, realistically wish for. To bellyache that there are some books and cartoons being made for children is, as I also stated earlier, ridiculous.

          “…the politically-correct pandering that is consuming much of it…”

          Oh, please elucidate. This should be good…

          • April 22, 2017 at 4:05 pm

            You’re such a douche to someone just expressing their opinion. God forbid my opinion is different than yours.

          • April 22, 2017 at 10:31 pm

            You didn’t give an opinion, you made a claim. Your incorrect claim was promptly refuted.

          • April 22, 2017 at 11:30 pm

            “Refuted” means to disprove, so that is wrong. You and other people who think Star Wars should be primarily aimed at young children have expressed your opinions, as sad as they are. Nevertheless, they are simply your opinions, and like a-holes, everyone has one. I guess there are a lot of man-childs in geekdom who want to read and watch dialog aimed at 7-year-olds. Don’t count me among them.

          • April 22, 2017 at 11:41 pm

            No, they’re not our opinions on what demographic Star Wars SHOULD be aimed at. They’re the facts about the demographic that Star Wars IS aimed at. Lucas said it himself. He made Star Wars for 12 year-olds.

          • April 22, 2017 at 11:45 pm

            You’re sounding more pompous than usual.

          • April 23, 2017 at 5:31 am

            What can I say? You make me a better person.

          • April 22, 2017 at 4:05 pm

            Word! It’s a KIDS’ commodity. Always has been. Just ask a guy named George…

        • April 22, 2017 at 10:30 pm

          George Lucas said that he made the franchise for 12 year-olds.

          Get over it.

          • April 22, 2017 at 11:33 pm

            He said that later in life, right around the time he was creating Jar-Jar. He has rewritten the history of Star Wars many times — any true Star Wars fan knows that. Enjoy life as a man-child. I’ll keep annoying you by complaining about the downward tilt of the franchise, toward young children and SJWs.

    • April 22, 2017 at 4:36 am

      Spinoffs = adults, Saga films = kids. That seems to be the message that Disney is conveying.

    • April 22, 2017 at 5:32 am

      I’m 39 years old and there’s never been MORE Star Wars stuff for me in my entire life. Novels, comics, TV series, movies, video games…..like, what the fuck else do you possible want?

    • April 23, 2017 at 11:00 pm

      I´d recommend not only ignore, but avoid visual contact with adult Star Wars fans

  • April 22, 2017 at 3:08 am

    why dont they make a novel about what happened to Barriss Offee after the clonewars show or a novel about Dooku training Qui Gon Jinn.

  • April 22, 2017 at 3:10 am

    Most interesting. I do hope the Journey to TLJ will be a lot better than TFA. I can rest at least knowing that at the very least this will be LucasFIlm’s second attempt at doing this. Some things I am looking forward to are the Phasma comic(please be good.), Claudia Gray’s Leia’s book(despite being geared towards children she writes Leia really well), Inferno( Didn’t like Dark Disciple, but it was written very well and I can see Christie Golden doing a phenomenal job with this. Especially, given it won’t be a bunch of scripts from a TCW story arc), and Star Wars: A certain point of view.

    I am a sucker for anthology collections of short-stories. And really, I love the idea of focusing on those smaller characters in the background. Because, it makes the universe feel that much more real. It is actually why I loved Aftermath’s interludes for the first book. A part of me wished that the entire book could just have those as that type of storytelling I can eat up.

    • April 25, 2017 at 2:50 pm

      Claudia Gray’s Leia book is actually a young adult novel. So if you liked her writing in Lost Stars, you will probably enjoy this one as well. I am disappointed that the Luke book coming out is for younger readers though. For myself at least…Luke is my son’s favorite so I’m sure he will love it.

      • April 25, 2017 at 5:41 pm

        Yeah, I found that out recently, but as you stated It won’t detract me as I do like Gray’s writing style. The Luke book, I can see where you are coming from. I was like that when some people told me that Weapon of the Jedi was a Young Adult novel. But knowing Jason Fry wrote it and having read it; it was a short(understandably so) yet well-crafted storyline.

        And goes to show that you shouldn’t literally judge a book by its cover. That sometimes the best stories can be enjoyed, regardless of age.

  • April 22, 2017 at 4:31 am

    So where’s the one about Kylo Ren’s scar moving to the wrong side of his face? I think noted historical revisionist Scamber Teard should write that epic.

    • April 22, 2017 at 4:34 am

      I really want to know why a saber to the face can cause a decades long scar on Anakin’s face but less damage to his Grandson than a cat scratch. Maybe his face is made of the same material that those riot troopers on Takodana used, Inquiring minds want to know.

      • April 22, 2017 at 4:07 pm

        I don’t think Anakin required a Bacta bath after he got his scar. Kylo on the other hand..probably needed one or two. As for the shifting..they probably thought it looks better that way.

      • April 22, 2017 at 10:27 pm

        It’s on the correct side of his face, it just shifted slightly. i honestly don’t see why you’re whining about it so much.

        It’s a scar.

        • April 24, 2017 at 3:58 pm

          Look at his user name. Don’t feed the trolls.

  • April 22, 2017 at 6:22 am

    Looking forward to the Screaming Citadel story arch and the Phasma novel! Oh and Rebels season 4 and that lil thing called The Last Jedi.

  • April 22, 2017 at 10:51 am

    really looking forward to continuing Darth Maul, and hyped for the New Darth Vader comic!

  • April 22, 2017 at 3:34 pm

    Does the Battlefront II novel have the same storyline as the videogame?

    • April 22, 2017 at 10:23 pm

      It’s a prequel to the game’s storyline. It tells the story of the team’s first mission.

      • April 28, 2017 at 8:17 pm

        dang it! I hoped it would prevent me to start videoplaying

  • April 22, 2017 at 8:43 pm

    One thing I don’t get is why every star wars new canon imperial female character has dark hair(Rae Sloane,Ciena Ree, Brunson, the inferno squad leader), where is the problem with blonde or ginger hair? When someone says female imperial officer I imagine a blonde girl in black uniform(Juno Eclipse), but disney keep giving us the same visage with only different names.


    • April 22, 2017 at 10:23 pm

      Oh no, not BROWN-HAIRED WOMEN!!

      • April 23, 2017 at 12:29 pm

        Maybe I have written it badly, it is not only about the hair I meant that they all look completely the same, there is no difference between them only names.

      • April 25, 2017 at 2:45 pm

        He actually has a point here. I have thought the same thing before. There have been fair-skinned blonde-haired officers as well in canon [Commander Alecia Beck from Smuggler’s Run and Captain Tolvan from the Aphra series (and possibly Captain Phasma?) come to mind], but so far they have just been ancillary. The main characters have all been mostly like the ones Thrawn mentions above. It doesn’t really matter to me, as I care more about substance than image (but LFL definitely seems to have a certain image in mind regarding their female Imperials at the moment). I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t hope for a certain red head to pop up eventually though :).

  • April 22, 2017 at 10:23 pm

    They’re cartoons for little girls. Get over it.

  • April 24, 2017 at 10:31 pm

    So when is Disney going to air re-runs of Rebels Season 3 on regular Disney? . . . still waiting . . . thats a date i would be interested in, though I am not holding my breathe on it thats for sure
