High Republic Dumpsterfire Stormtrooper 02/26/2020 (Wed) 17:16:35 No.2639
So Disney announced this the other day. Its the identity of their "super secret" Project Luminous, which is actually called "The High Republic Era". Its nothing but a few books and comics made by the gayest bunch you ever did see and the majority are all terrible and woke writers. In essence its a crappier Old Republic knockoff that's only set 200 years before the prequels. Its basically a retelling of the Mandalorian Wars but it replaces the Mandalorians with "Space Vikings". The Vong are also supposedly going to be a part of this as are sith gods and the "Sith Empire". But the real kicker is that shortly after this moronic announcement, Bob Iger officially stepped down as CEO of Disney which has many people talking about this High Republic shit being the first sign of the fall of Disney's Star Wars and possibly Disney as a whole which is still in massive debt caused by a lot of their recent acquisitions, the most notable being 20th Century Fox (which they have since renamed 20th Century). So is this the end? Has SW finally taken its first step to truly being put out of its misery and being put to rest?
You know, I'm not entirely opposed to this. I will accept Disney Wars stuff as long as it's good and fits in with EU continuity (the latter might apply, but I'm highly doubtful about the former). However, if this turns out to be the final nail in the coffin that brings an end to Disney Wars and possibly even the Mouse itself I'd be more beyond thrilled to see it fail.
>Has SW finally taken its first step to truly being put out of its misery and being put to rest? Disney Wars, hopefully, will be the one to be laid to rest. By the Force, Disney Wars will be decanonized, and the Expanded Universe can take its rightful place once more. Maybe we can have true sequels based on Legends.
>>2639 >Relatable characters Why does everything have to be relatable these days? Star Wars was a fantasy escapist film, what's relatable to anyone about going from a desert farmer to a magical space wizard that toppled an empire? What's relatable about going from a literal slave to one of the most feared dark space wizards in the entire galaxy? >Not pro-war Do they have to remind themselves of such a basic pillar of Star Wars? But of course this is going to be mis-interpreted by the retards that work there and the whole message will be mangled by the time it reaches the audience. >No single (main) character What is this bullshit? Both trilogies had a clear main character but with many side characters too. Are the writers aware that you can still develop a character even if they aren't a main character? Leia and Han weren't the main characters but had plenty of character development. >University Ah yes, when I think Star Wars I think of space university and how the evil empire introduced higher tuition fees and oppressed innocent aliens from obtaining degrees and advancing up the social hierarchy. Take that misogynists! >Dinosaurs! >! I'm at a loss for words >Arthurian legends The only sensible piece written on the board but no doubt Guinevere in this retooling will kick the Green Knights ass >Rival houses In theory it could be interesting but no doubt intended to be Harry Potter-tier rival houses with each house having a specific colour scheme and personality trait all while the obligatory whiter-than-white house fights the evil-for-no-real-reason house >Chaos agents Sounds like some shit that belongs in a bad fanfiction or some tumblr fandom. I dread to see what this is. >So is this the end? Has SW finally taken its first step to truly being put out of its misery and being put to rest? I can only hope. Just as I was starting to get back into Star Wars the mouse took over and fucked everything over, so I can only hope that it burns so I can at least have my fond childhood memories of Star Wars intact.

considering who some of the writers are its gonna be a shit show.

>>2639 >The Vong are also supposedly going to be a part of this as are sith gods and the "Sith Empire" Are they fucking high or something? This is supposed to be set about 200 years before the prequels, which according to the movies was a relatively peaceful time where the Sith threat was practically nonexistent
>>2654 Honestly I think it's a small miracle they even know what the Sith are.
>>2654 Um... why are you mansplaining to these creative and beautiful women? They know more about Star Wars than you ever will, sweetie.
At this rate I am worried about Disney creating a crap hole that will engulf the universe.
>>2654 >Are they fucking high or something? >High Republic Episode CDXX THE RISE OF WEEDSMOKER It is a dank time for the Republic. After the Ruusan Reformation, there was some Sith dude called, like, Darth Bong or something like that? He's sort of this guy who was like kind of running this long plot to take over the Republic by infiltration over hundreds of years or something that just makes you go, woah this guy is on another level, bro. Man, I'm so karking high right now. Did you know the Alderaanians built all their buildings and starships out of hemp? I could seriously go for some chips. I could just eat the whole bag of chips and then hehehehehehehehehe. Anyway, you want to go listen to The Dark Side of the Space Station by Pink Droid? It's like the best stoner album ever. Then we can go to the Jedi Temple and join the protest to legalize weed. It'll be rad. At the last protest a talking pot leaf came out of the Temple and said weed was the lowest arrest priority for the Jedi. He must have been super high because he said all his sentences backwards. Yeah, I'm pretty sure he was cool with weed. Must be because of those teachings about spiritual harmony and mystic timecubes from the angels of Iego. That's deep, man. The supreme vibing of our impression will reverberate through the cosmos and stuff...
>>2662 Not enough faggots and trannys to be a current year (((disney))) product.
>>2667 I know how to fix it! Let's put in a black weed dealer who leads Smoke City, a floating city built of hemp where pot is the main export and everybody is a stoner! That ought to be enough diversity. But just in case, let's have his assistant be an intersex gay Mexican with gaudy earrings and a yarmulke.

>>2647 One of the primary issues with hivemind hugboxes like the boards of the Webring is that anything even remotely appearing to be an unorthodox opinion gets you shit for it. One need only lurk reddit (r/civ is pretty bad) for a time to recognize these similarities.

>>2691 >sage There's nothing unorthodox about not encouraging support for Disney. They fucked up SW royally beyond all repair. To allow it to be even lightly praised despite their actions is like giving the landlord who killed your dog a compliment for putting a lawn gnome in your yard that you didn't even want. I know some of you have an intense desire to consume product or are so desperate for anything that even a polished turd looks decent, but just think for two seconds and weigh in all that's happened these last 10 years under Disney and how this shit does nothing to undo their mistakes, just add to them. Only redeemable thing for these retards is to restart the continuity again, but even that's likely to get fucked.
>>2695 correct. Disney Wars is a radioactive shitshow, a mindless, plagiarized mess that makes a mockery of Star Wars and only contributes cultural marxist propaganda. you might have occasional decent content, but this is heavily outweighed by all the sludge. Disney canon should be totally forsaken and forbidden. the most I'd allow is minor borrowings within strict limits, such as the banner of Vader without his mask taken from that comic.
>>2695 The sage was for my off-topic post.
Out of all the badguys to use for this era why not use the Trade Federation or pirates? They control the outer rim and it lines up with the prequels.
>>2691 The shit you get for your "unorthodox opinions" is probably for posting that's subversive with respect to board culture and doesn't have anything to do with going against the "hivemind hugbox."

>>2639 >The Vong are also supposedly going to be a part of this as are sith gods and the "Sith Empire".
>>2744 Yeah, except they're called the Grysk now.
Ah, So this is basically Disney's pathetic take on The Old Republic era?
>>2778 Yes, but it's even worse because they only decided to set it a mere two centuries before the Phantom Menace while also including Sith and not-Vong, contradicting the film which said the Sith weren't seen in 1,000 years.
So when are we getting the first pile of crap from this era so we can roast it? >>2779 I guess you could theoretically do something with this, but you'd have to make it so whoever runs into the Sith is basically treated like Agent Mulder when he tries to tell people what happened. But they don't have enough talent to make it work. I bet this board could do a better job than whatever they put out.

Hey, remember when a genocidal cult lead the Republic (and I'm not talking about the Jedi)? Remember that shit? Sure would be cool to see something original like that instead of "Empire versus Republic" fucking AGAIN. I'M SO FUCKING SICK AND TIRED OF EMPIRE VS REPUBLIC.
>>2878 Rebels vs. Confederacy?
>>2879 Give me new fucking factions at least. Go over the Huttese wars and the expansion of their cartel magistrate. Fucking anything.
>>2878 >>2879 >>2881 In the 200 ABY thread on the old board, we had some discussion about making a story with many factions instead of the usual Republic vs CIS, Rebels vs Empire stuff. Nothing ever came of that because the 200 ABY guy never came back, but it's still something I'd like to see. I keep hoping he'll eventually show up again in spite of myself. But there are still lots of underused factions even without resorting to a new era.
>>2878 Even NJO and Legacy were a fair departure from the usual cycle.

>>3916 Yeah something like that plus bad comedy and woman always have the last word. The most retarded shit of this chapter is this >After all, SSkeer believed in me. That's why he took me to Shuraden. He knew what would happen. The ximpi. The ridadi. It's implying that Sskeer knew that the giant bugs were going berseek because of the jedi outpost and were going to destroy a xeno city. Or at the very least, the city was going to be destroy by giant bugs. And instead of stopping that, he used that event as a test for his nigger to pass from padawan to Jedi. Xenons died and some giant bugs are chasing a spaceship for God's know how long all because of a lizard's test and NOBODY said anything about it.
I feel so much anger at how stupid this is and how little thought was put into it. This is not star wars this is a shitty self insert fanfiction wrote by a teenager that thinks they know how to write.
>>2878 Praise the Goddess, for She is Good.
>>3918 >Yeah something like that >yidsney soy wars is so predictable you can mostly guess the plot by taking a quick glance over thumbnails >>3920 >this is a shitty self insert fanfiction wrote by a teenager that thinks they know how to write So the exact same thing as everything else yidsney has done with the IP.
"Leox Gyasi" might be an anagram of "Leo X is gay". Pope Leo X was rumored to be a faggot. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Leo_X#Sexuality
>>3929 >Implying the writers have that much history knowledge to pull a trick like this. Average leftard writer draws history from public school with "muh evul kings and natzees", perhaps the most hardcore ones know also some soviet or anarchiddy too. But don´t think of ever know the name of any Pope aside from the nigger-feet kisser on top now.
>>3929 I honestly don't think the "artist" could have made the character look any more stereotypically gay if they tried. He could be wearing a rainbow cape with a giant dildo stuck up his ass and it would look exactly as gay as it does now. If it were done for the sake of fucking with people I'd be impressed, but I know this was done thinking they were making some sort of positive impact in the world by making a hyperfag character in a shit comic no one's going to buy.

Light of the Jedi is a great set-up even if the other novels and comics end up being shit. High Republic had the balls to actually come up with an original plot and set of antagonists instead of recycling the empire and Sith for the umpteenth time. It's leaps and bounds better than Old Republic by sheer virtue that it has an original bone in its body. Revan is dogshit compared to Marchion Ro. None of you fags will believe me and will think I'm trolling, but the truth needed to be said even if it's going to be completely eclipsed by the circlejerk narrative.

>>4004 Its probably because they thought hilts make them look more primitive because High Republic is "old" despite being set only 150 years before their new films. Fucking hilts shouldn't be part of standard issue lightsabers and make no damn sense. At best they should be like some optional customization that a few jedi go for either because its appealing to them or because they're pussies afraid of getting their hands burned, like those few weird jedi who still liked to use proto-sabers even in the modern ages.
