    Write and tell stories ONE BY ONE. Trying to build the outline first is silly. Build outwards from a single story... SMH

    Hey Disney, maybe you can focus on just telling a better story. It's a Star Wars it had always had diverse. None of this writers are anything.

    <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="139">2:19</a> is that Laurence Fishburne

    This feels a lot like Tod Howard talking about Elder Scrolls and Fallout...from that brainstorming board I'm not excited.

    We want army’s of sith warriors not space vikings

    • Henry Louis
      Henry Louis

      George Grubb this is an era where the Sith has been eradicated from the galaxy, suddenly having Sith warriors would just retcon the fact that the Sith has been associated with the galaxy. And in a universe with space pirates, the idea of Space Vikings somehow is more baffling

    At this point just make a star wars in a separate universe. It just feels boring that u are riding off of the same story.

    • Henry Louis
      Henry Louis

      Kymani E what some story, the High Republic is something entirely new and they are telling a whole new set of stories set in this era.

    Pack it up boys Starwars is going to ruin the prequels Dont watch this film if you support starwars

    • Henry Louis
      Henry Louis

      The Conductor Esplin Its a new era of books and comics, its not movies. Also, this is going to be set far away from the prequels and have nothing to do with the main Skywalker saga.

  • Christian Jackson

    When or then again HOW could this story ever end? New characters, new subjects. So, I think it should never end!!

  • Lupin Dangerously

    I hope you guys don't F#%× this up

    • Henry Louis
      Henry Louis

      @The Conductor Esplin Because these writers are a new set of writers. They have even worked on some fan-favorite Star Wars content in the new canon. They are not the ones who worked on the movies. But I honestly hope to god that they have more planets that are not just another dessert and have more than just one biome.

    • Lupin Dangerously
      Lupin Dangerously

      @Henry Louis there was already a bunch of diversity with dozens of different species of humanoids. And if you read any of the books like Legacy of the Jedi you might agree that there was a very good variety of diversity without forcing it down everybody's throat there were several powerful or should I say mighty female characters. We don't want virtue signaling we want to escape from the sjw world we're in right now LOL and just enjoy a good tail

    • The Conductor Esplin
      The Conductor Esplin

      @Henry Louis Oh come on Do you really think they want to focus on a variety of characters from different places They didn't do it with the Disney sequels why would they do that here

    • Henry Louis
      Henry Louis

      The Conductor Esplin Diversity does not only mean identity politics, it means variety in story telling, they are going to have different sets of planets, characters, locations and variety in storytelling. It does not mean identity politics.

    • The Conductor Esplin
      The Conductor Esplin

      On the black board it says they need to focus on diversity

    All I see are unworthy people parading on George Lucas' throne

    Where are the sith? What a dissapointment

      Anthony Penney The Sith are supposed to be gone from the galaxy and in hiding, since this is set during a time of peace.

    The longer I watched the trailer. The worse it got.

  • Elijah Neil
    Elijah Neil

    If they went back to the old republic, they would most likely change a lot of characters backstory. This gives them more free story telling ideas and an opportunity to create more great characters. Plus they could also always go to the old republic after this

  • Bill Clark
    Bill Clark

    This story may be great. Ignore the ungrestful fans. But we need likable characters and different personalities. We also need different adventures and cool local factions. We also need cool super hero, detective, and po lmk ice style stories. With small scale battles, judicial forces, unpredictable variables, and jedi deaths every now and then from overwhelming odds.

    • Elijah Neil
      Elijah Neil

      They were planning there ultimate revenge in secret so they wouldn’t be fighting the jedi and maybe they influence these “space Vikings” in secret

  • ChickenTendys55

    I have made my own Star Wars sub era that is set 300 years before Darth Bane’s rule of two, it is called the Dark Republic-era. It is set during a time where the Jedi and Sith Were at each other’s throats.

    • ChickenTendys55

      This era of mine is set during the Old Republic you heard this right this era of mine takes place during the time of the Great Jedi and Sith Wars Of Ancient Old... Now, please comment to these statements I have made. And I better get a heart from the channel and lots of comments reacting to this.

  • Wilson Yu
    Wilson Yu

    I read most of the Redwall novels and as a fantasy fiction reader, story chronology and publications are not always ‘consistent’. So there’s always prequels and sequels take place many years before or after the first story.

  • Wilson Yu
    Wilson Yu

    Sounds cool but strange how there won’t be any Sith in the story. The Sith after Old Republic are in hiding until the Canon era.

    • Wilson Yu
      Wilson Yu

      @AnthonyGRsoftFan Perhaps, even those are hidden as well, in many star systems. Even the Jedi won't be fighting Sith Lords in this story, I imagine the Jedi will run into old Sith temples, artifacts, history of the Dark Side. More like easter eggs.

    • AnthonyYouTubeFan

      Supposedly, Sith artifacts and alchemy may be at work in this particular story.

  • RyanD

    when your wishes for star wars are diversity and representation, your main focus isnt the story

    • Henry Louis
      Henry Louis

      RyanD The writers are focused on the story, its just a wish they have to have more inclusivity in their stories.

  • ZeFFir

    "Diversity" - im out of this before it even starts.

    • Unknown

      @Henry Louis We shall see. Based on their past movies and products, I'm more than skeptical on the idea that they're really using your definition.

    • Henry Louis
      Henry Louis

      ZeFFir Diversity does not mean identity politics, it means variety in storytelling, locations, aliens etc. It does not just mean identity politics.

    Please for the love of god, I just want some stuff getting deep into the dark side and the siths culture. The force and midichlorians explained more as well. Lucas wanted to do that supposedly. There's so much to be told.

  • CajunRulez

    Meh.....I want a movie that goes back before the Bane rule of two; back when there were an equal number of Jedi and Sith and the Jedi were not just peace keepers. They had no choice but to be warriors like Samurai b/c of the constant threat of their ancient enemy. That's what I want. A totally different type of Jedi/Sith with Force powers that are probably banned by the Jedi council after the Sith are presumed to be destroyed.

    why are they trying to make jedis be like cowboys? one of the biggest points about the jedis is that they shouldnt be fighting unless they have to.

    • Henry Louis
      Henry Louis

      Terry Jones There is going to be some fighting. Its just not a full scale war. Hell, they said themselves. It’s not Star Wars without adventure, so there is going to be a lot of adventure in the High Republic

    • Terry Jones
      Terry Jones

      Be pretty boring if they didnt fight

    • Henry Louis
      Henry Louis

      It's just a concept they are working on. They do say that the Jedi are guardians of peace and justice, so we could see the Jedi traveling around the galaxy like cowboys and bring justice to every planet.

    The nile? a bunch of space Vikings? Geez.

    • Henry Louis
      Henry Louis

      @Cody Collects Everyone has an opinion about what Star Wars is really about, and no, its not just the Sith vs the Jedi. Also, this is a fresh new take on a Star Wars story, having non-sith and force sensitives that the Jedi could fight against. The Nihil is, of course, space Vikings, and if their name is saying something. They might have a nihilistic viewpoint, making them scary knowing they are a bunch, nihilists.

    • Cody Collects
      Cody Collects

      @Henry Louis Starwars is all about the Sith vs Jedi, now it's Jedi vs Nile

    • Henry Louis
      Henry Louis

      @Cody Collects You feel betrayed, the only reason you would feel betrayed is when they promise you that they will have Sith but is not actually going to have the Sith as the villains of the story.

      Cody Collects What? The concept of the Nihil is an interesting one. Judging from their name, it seems like they are a nihilistic group of Space Vikings.

    I mean if you really think about it, Disney clearly didn't treat the old characters that were already created too well. So why would you want to let them touch the Old Republic next? I wouldn't wanna see what they do with them. Plus I think this High Republic looks very interesting

      Those old games and comics are never as good the second time around anyway. Society changes and pop culture reflects that. Notice how a lot of villains are turning into heroes these days?
