I saw a post talking about this via Star Wars Latin America’s website and they even have a video discussing it all and it got me thinking… what if?
Now, I know that Disney said they were going to tie up the Skywalker Saga with the death of Ben Solo and Rey becoming the “Skywalker” to end it all. But do you think Disney will ever reconsider going back to the Skywalker Saga at any point?
We know that the publishing side of Disney has already released details of their plans to focus on the Star Wars universe during the time of the High Republic. That much we know and I’ve blogged about it before.
The issue I have with that is we know Disney’s only concern is making money. I mean let’s face it, they’ve pretty much proven to the world that money is a primary concern for any of their franchises and as a business, that makes sense. But that could also mean that they aren’t at all interested in entertaining the fans which is why I think they decided to wrap up the Skywalker Saga. They knew they couldn’t really build on the sequel trilogy any further so they needed to create a new “brand” within the Star Wars universe for fans to get excited about once more.
Are we really all that excited about The High Republic? I have my reservations. The one thing that the Skywalker Saga has is that everyone knows the characters – and loves them. Building a brand new “saga” for the Star Wars universe means creating characters fans will love and stories fans will be interested in. Are we as fans ready for that?
Should that fail, do you think Disney would reconsider going back to the Skywalker saga at any point?
Let me know in the comments, readers as I am keen to get your point of view on this topic!
Stay safe out there and I’ll catch you in the comments or in tomorrow’s post.
