    One thing which could be interesting is with it getting a release on their new streaming platform is if they will go for a miniseries or more traditional episodic tv series. One important thing is that this could be one of Disney's flagship series for their new service, they will want it to be good and they will be willing to throw a lot of money at it if it helps to get people to sign up to the service.

    I hope they have enough time that it will be really impressive.

    I don't really have any expectations for the show save one. I want it to be set after Return of the Jedi. I want us to move beyond the Original Trilogy and Prequel trilogy eras. I feel like those time periods have been done to death. I want to see new unexplored eras of the Star Wars mythos. post-Return of the Jedi and the "cold war" era is what I want to see.

    Eh, I hope this show isn't just explaining how the Resistance formed. At this point I've seen enough of the Rebellion and the Empire. Plus, they have the new animated show about the Resistance.

    A good opportunity for this show would be to make it about post-Sarlaac Boba Fett. It could be about a damaged and aging Boba training his son to carry on his legacy. Or it could just be more adventures of the original Boba.

    Since it's being done for the streaming service, I hope it will have higher production values than your typical network TV show and will look really good.

    It's interesting he used Yavin as his reference point though. He didn't say "3 years after Endor", rather "7 after Yavin". Nerdist clarified it in their video later on.

    So, interesting. Post-Jedi, but also after the Battle Of Jakku. So the Empire's running off with their tails between their legs and only in the really formative stages of just starting down their path to become The First Order.

    Still banking on Yavin having some significance though from his interview, not much to go on though.

    I assume it's because Battle of Yavin is the main timeline reference for Lucasfilm and Star Wars continuity. It's all based on Battle of Yavin in the first movie (1977).

    Yeah, that's how they've generally done it, it just seems a weird way to word it in an interview. Like "3 years after ROTJ" would seem a more natural way of saying it when talking to the media.

    *Shrugs* It's probably nothing, just thought it was interesting.

    Yeah not buying it. Also why wouldn't you just go ahead and use Lars Mikkelsen? Dude's got the physical presence already. Thrawn makes no sense to cast a different actor as the voice.

    And Jon's already said the series takes place post-Jedi, not sure why the Thrawn stuff is in this thread.

    It'd be cool getting live-action Thrawn, I don't know what project it'd be for though. You wouldn't want him in an Obi-Wan solo flick. I guess it's not out of the question for Mangold's Boba movie assuming that's set pre-OT though.

    MakingStarWars is saying this is going to be about Mandalore, post-Imperial rule.
