Legacy initiatives typically face an uphill battle to get followers really invested within the story, with a lot of them opting to lazily lean into fan service and Easter Eggs to achieve curiosity, versus crafting a worthwhile narrative that’s able to sinking its hooks into audiences who already know the final word destiny for most of the characters, with the Disney Plus slate of Star Wars reveals being a distinguished instance.
Obi-Wan Kenobi has proven to be a lot more polarizing than anyone would have thought (or hoped, for that matter), however within the grand scheme of issues, the collection is simply filling within the gaps. We adopted Ewan McGregor’s arc via The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith, and we all know he dies in A New Hope, so there aren’t any surprises and even much less dramatic stakes.
Similarly, Andor has been given a two-season order that’s set to see Diego Luna headline 24 episodes of tv, however everybody is aware of he bites the mud in Rogue One, so his journey already has a finite conclusion. With that in thoughts, followers are asking for Lucasfilm to attempt one thing completely different, as an alternative of setting so many exclusives between Episodes III and IV.
Even The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, and Ahsoka are between trilogies, with these three unfolding after Return of the Jedi, however previous to The Force Awakens. There’s no cause why Lucasfilm can’t decide factor up post-Skywalker Saga, however for no matter cause, there doesn’t appear to be a lot of a vested curiosity in exploring what’s at present the “modern-day” Star Wars timeline.
