They have a rematch in New Hope. Why make them have one in between? There are no stakes for it. It's not like Vader or Obi Wan is going to #$%&ing die early or something. 

Yeah right. I really hate them rewriting continuity.

While I'm glad to see more Star Wars our there and well end up getting some cool new toys from these shows, I hope Hasbro doesn't forget about some characters from the previous movies and series.

Ugh...watch out with that lady.

As I said before I hope Disney doesn't get the quantity over the quality, looking at most of those upcoming projects  presented there I can't say I'm interested in all of them, but I hope something good comes out of all of this.

Rogue Squadron helmed by Patty Jenkins sounds great as long as Disney doesn't fight tooth and nail to nerf it like they did Rogue One.  And the Indiana Jones 5 paycheck will be a fantastic 80th birthday present for Harrison Ford.I feel a lot better about what I've heard and seen from Marvel Studios about their projects than Lucasfilm.  No surprise there, I guess.

Rogue Squadron is the nice surprise of this whole thing, I'm actually disappointed is that is not a series because there's so much potential there. I agree about Marvel after I saw the news of Star Wars here I saw the Marvel lineup, now that's what I'm talking about.

-Rogue Squadron sounds interesting, if they can get the same vibe from the books and comics. For the love of God, give me Baron Fel.

-Obi Wan Kenobi should be a 1 season thing as I don't see them getting much stories about his exile in Tattoine. While I'm glad that Hayden is involved I'd rather have a Darth Vader series or mini series involving the Jedi Purge and the rise of the Empire but I digress.

-As much as I love Ahsoka, I'm not really keen on getting her own series but we'll see how it goes. 

-Rangers of the New Republic sounds like it has potential, I need to know more before I make up my mind.

-Never been a really a big fan of Lando so not really interested in his series but maybe this series will change my mind.

-Andor is one of the few projects I was curious about. I loved Rogue One and if they explore the early days of the Rebellion, it will be interesting.

-Star Wars as anime? Meh

-The Bad Batch: a series featuring Filoni's blah version of Delta Squad, more clones, Yay!!!

-No more Droid stories!

-Other Lucasfilm projects? Indiana Jones? Harrison Ford? I'll be surprised if he doesn't break a hip getting out of his trailer.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have oversaturation.

Whatever it is, I'm sure it will be dumb.
