It’s time to explore other eras

As stated above, the Prequel era has already been thoroughly explored. First, there was the prequel trilogy, then there was The Clone Wars show, then Star Wars Rebels, and the films Solo and Rogue One, and we can’t forget to mention the Cassian Andor series and the Obi-Wan series that will also be set prior to A New Hope. What else needs to be said about this era? Why is Lucasfilm so hellbent on sticking in this time frame with many of their shows and films? It’s time to move on and explore some new eras in the Star Wars universe.

There is plenty of room to go way back and do a show about the rise of the Jedi and the Sith. They could also jump way ahead and look at what Rey does after inheriting the Jedi. They could also go back and explore the time between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. A show detailing the rise and fall of the Luke’s Jedi Academy would be fascinating, as would a series based on Lando and Luke searching for the Sith Wayfinder and Ochi of Bestoon.  The search for Ezra Bridger in a Star Wars Rebels sequel series would also be much more welcome of an idea than a show about a group of elite clone troopers, that honestly, were the weakest part of season seven of The Clone Wars.

Perhaps Lucasfilm is saving many of these time frames for future Disney+ series or films, but it’s time to move on from the Prequel era and give fans something new to feast their eyes and hearts upon.

Next. The Bad Batch is not what fans expected next. dark
