Honestly, I have no patience anymore for the entitled Star Wars fans, the ones who think everything Star Wars should be things they specifically want and nothing else.  Bad news for you dudes - your time is over and it's only gonna get worse for you.  This cartoon is not OT focused.  Many of the new movies and TV shows will not be OT focused.  There will be TONS of new Disney Star Wars characters introduced in the coming years.  And you know what?  That's OK. You might even accidentally like some of it.

I feel like I'm getting beat up a bit in here, but it's all good. I read some of the other comments across the boards and if I'm the worst curmudgeon JD has, then things here aren't so bad...

I have given every new thing Disney has thrown at us a fair shake. Some I like, some I don't. I am guilty of having the same "OT Man-Crush" you profess to, Jeff, of course.

Maybe I am feeling oversaturation fatigue? I dunno.

At the end of the day I have no problem with the show that I haven't seen except I honestly don't get how its pitch wins out over OT goodness. Of course I will give it a shot, just as I did Clone Wars and Rebels (neither one stuck for me, but that's taste for you.) I love Star Wars stuff, even the goofy awful stuff (Okay, sometimes I like the goofy stuff even more than the straight stuff.)

Are the people who are anti TFA era the same people who are anti Disney making a movie about Han Solo?

Don't feel beat up, I was talking about some of the stuff over at Yakface or some of the twitter stuff I saw.  Those who are pooping all over the show without really knowing anything about it.

Wishing it was OT focused is a far cry from wanting the show to be an immediate failure because you hate the sequel stuff. The guys who bitch because Disney made Forces of Destiny or whatever other thing they feel is a waste of time.  The people who forget it's OK if Disney services the needs of other Star Wars fans who aren't them.

Like I said, I also would have preferred an OT focused show like many dudes my age, but at the same time I'm not pooping all over this without giving it a chance.  It might turn out to be great or it might turn out to be more EU dreck (of which there is plenty).

I feel like Disney's only correct move per the internet is an OT story that they consult with every Star Wars fan who is 40+ years old on

I can only imagine what the world would have been like if Twitter existed in 1990s -
- "Lucasfilm, stop introducing all these lame new characters like Grand Admiral Thrawn and Mara Jade and give us a new Han and Lando book!!!"
- "KOTOR?  Try NOGAF! LOL.  Why are you wasting time on a stupid video game involving a bunch of made up characters when you could make a Luke Skywalker video game instead?
- "A whole Marvel comics series about Jedi who existed thousands of years before ANH?  WTF - we want more Luke comics!"

You missed the same crybaby bitching that something is too derivative after bitching something was too original.  Or does that only work in reverse for these children?

Yeah Muftak, it isnít really a dump on you.  Youíre not alone in what you want either.  Iíd love an OT cartoon because Iím more partial to that era myself and I think itíd work too.

But the sequel trilogy isnít a bad place to get a toon either and it lacks a lot of backstory.  I kind of see why theyíre doing that.  I think they may do an OT based show or PT or whatever.  The future is wide open.

 But like Jeff said, a lot of folks are dumping on this just because it is ST focused...  its kind of rampant.  Yet that is Disneyís brainchild ultimately and I think it kind of makes sense that era is getting its first non-film media outside of a book or comic.  Iím kinda shocked it wasnít one of the first things they did actually, and Rebels was instead.

Itís still only into the third year of this ride too.  Iím sure there will be a lot more stuff to come.

I wanted that TIE Fighter short to be a series more than anything but Iím interested in this too.

I am willing to offer my services.   ;D

As far as this show goes....let's see what they make.  It could be really good or it could suck.  I'm sure we'll hear both opinions.

Like I said, no worries. I'm glad there is some kind of debate/difference of opinion in the discussion. Things would be too stale if we just all agreed out of hand.  ;D

I get the love for the OT period.  And truth be told, my appreciation for ROGUE ONE has only grown since it's release.

But in terms of Star Wars moving forward?  I take to heart something that I've heard from multiple people at Lucasfilm in the past few years:  they're looking to expand the scope of the Star Wars universe.  That means new stories about new characters, and potentially in different eras.  I think that's a good thing, and it might keep the franchise from getting stale.

Where can I view the TIE Fighter short that people keep mentioning?  Pretty sure I missed that...

It's really  neat.  100% based on the TIE Fighter PC game, down to the cockpit graphics even.  Outstanding stuff from that dude.  If Resistance is akin to this, I'm in for sure.
