I’m onboard but confused. When Disney first took over they talked about doing ongoing trilogies that continued the classic stories (which I took to mean Skywalker-centric) with stand alone stories in between that would flesh out and experiment within the galaxy. So will this be the next ongoing trilogy and we’re done with the Skywalker focus after the current one? As always I have an open mind either way.

I mean, I'd rather see new characters reappear than continue the Skywalker story for 49 movies. I'm more into the idea of trilogies and series consisting of entirely new things in a familiar universe. Did that make sense? I'm drunk, guys.

It means more than 1 movie a year.

I mean, Disney made it pretty clear from the jump that they would be pumping out Star Wars movies from now until Best Korea kills us.

First press thing I read on deadline said "a different galaxy" and I was having a really hard time figuring out how they were going to do something entirely new while still having it Star Wars. The more information I see the more it appears its simply going to be a trilogy outside the Skywalker saga. I really hope it doesn't mean more than one movie a year, it could be the perfect answer to keep milking the trillion dollar teet without entirely over saturating the classic story.

The Ore Crawlers from the last Rebels episode are clearly ripped from the pages of Dark Empire, i.e. World Devastators

But not as goofy and not farting out tie fighters in its wake. I'm a huge fan of the new cannon taking things from the old EU and tempering and taming them into something that works within the new confines.

There is a single episode midseason finale monday breaking the trend of double episodes a week and then we don't get anything more until 2018.

I'm way behind on the comics. I normally grab the trades after a while since I can't even commit to buying something once a month. How many issues deep is that one so far?

Are there multiple timelines for the Vader comic? I have some of the ones that occur right after A New Hope. Is there one that happens right after revenge of the Sith?

yeah i guess they wrapped up the original one that released in 2016, and just came out with a new run this year that starts immediately after getting his suit, he has no lightsaber yet and the first arc is about him crafting is infamous red saber, so cool

My (safe bet) Snoke theory: Not only is Snoke a new character but he hasn't had shit to do with the saga before this point. He's from the Unkown Regions. I believe he's behind whatever dark force that called out to Palpatine and inspired him to set in place the contingencies that lead to the First Order.

This is a little more out there and I don't buy this myself but perphaps he's part of/the last of a reimagining of the Rakatans since Rakatan Prime has been included in new canon maps of the Unkown Regions.

I really don't follow star wars like I follow marvel, but I've seen action figure comparisons with snoke, Rey and kylo and snoke kinds towers over them. I'd assume they are in scale, so it'd be weird for him to be Mace

Your second paragraph is aligned with my own thoughts on Snoke. I think Rian's trilogy will be in the past and could potentially involve a new take on the Infinite Empire.
