I think they just don't realise how dated this is.
George Lucas himself decided that the Jedi were too good to be true, which was why they fell. They needed to evolve.

Instead DLF are keeping them in a kind of statis. It's the 21st century and no one likes fanatics.

And it's impossible to identify with the perfect.

Yeah, dated is the right word. It strikes me as safer Legends aka old EU and those books weren't exactly literally phenomenon. So if this is their attempt to expand fandom beyond most die-=hard who would read the books I don't think they'll succeed.

I've just spoken online with someone who read the TROS novel - and apparently Rey never mentions Kylo/Ben again after he saves her. Not to Finn, or Poe. Not even to tell them he saved her.
I'm honestly astonished. I thought it was simply poor editing in the film, but it's the same in the book.
There goes my last trace of respect and liking for Rey as a character.
It makes her new name stink even more. She takes after grandaddy. He was an uncaring self serving b****** as well.

Weird, since they bothered to have her comment that it was like she had half of herself die with him. On the other hand, it probably would have taken pages on her part to explain to Finn and Poe, who knew literally nothing about her connection prior to this.

@motherofpearl1 Pages of dialogue that summarize what the reader/viewer already knows and witnessed makes for poor writing, and stomps on the happy tone they attempted to shoehorn as the end of TROS. I don't like it either, but the movie might be rendered even more nonsensical if they still kept the "happy" ending with the Resistance BFG pals and the Luke/Leia ghosts, while also making it more depressing and pointless by lingering on Ben's death. They painted themselves into a corner on this one, the story is very poorly set up for such a mourning. I'm almost surprised they let her reflect a little in the scene on Exogol at all.

It's not the a sith way to treat a major character, but an appalling way to end the Skywalker dynasty.
,"Oh look - the last Skywalker didn't measure up, so we'll choose a new one."

Since when did the Skywalkers become synonymous with perfection ?

The origin of this is really a comic book crossover, only instead of one super hero crossing over with another and another, it’s different publishers crossing over with each other, with one story or character leading into another.

https://www.starwars.com/news/star-wars-the-high-republic-interview

So... like Marvel. Copying Marvel, hoping that it will a safe base for making then multibillion movie adaptation if fans like these characters and stories. Yeah, yeah, it will totally work, Marvel needed only 50+ years of this, bunch of movies with not-so-great BO and then 10+ years of cinematic universe. Pfff, Lucasmouse will do all of it in 3 years.

They are so obsessed with the money here that they will fail. Trust me. It won't be easy 1.5b BO anymore, and comics+ books won't help. Let's not forget that they will easily ignore the stuff people loved in these books because... because this kind of idiocy is exactly what usually happens.

Someone much wiser than me summed up Rey's journey in TROS as a 'beginning, not an end.' They likened it to when a superhero starts out on their quest. Rey has become the New Hope (hence Ben 'giving her back to the galaxy') and the lone Superwoman, capable of anything, including healing with a touch and getting everyone to immediately adore her, and dressed in her new superhero costume with her brand new lightsabre, watched over by the ghosts of her surrogate parents, and is ready to begin her adventures in comic books. Minus of course that nasty undeserving boyfriend who's not good enough for her, and is required purely to feed her his life force.

Terrio has been writing Supergirl. And how many bets that once the dust has settled LF will create a comic book series featuring Rey the Ronin?

The idea of adaptations of SW comics or books is so entirely foreign. The entire basis of the EU was that it was, well, the expanded universe, it was extra and separate from the films. I assume they're not doing the more lucrative Old Republic because they want to jump straight to films or shows or games.

I honestly have no idea what they are going to do.
And unless it concerns Ben Solo, I have no interest.

One of those Fandom Menace people took it upon themselves to redesign (re: hypersexualize) the main blond lady of the High Republic stuff, because they thought she looked "too masculine." Almost like a comic book or video game character with exaggerated features. Whee. You might not be thrilled with the HL characters, but really, will these people never be happy? I doubt LF would actually do such a thing, as they're trying to sell to kids as well, and they've gone to some lengths to not repeat slave-bikini Leia. But of course that's what people want apparently.

Honestly I was fine with slave Leia, because of what she did at the end, instead of being seen as Jabba's victim she instead went down in history as the Huttslayer!

But JJ's behaviour with TROS is truly bizarre. One one hand, he gives the dudebros what they want - killing Kylo 🙁, getting rid of Rose, FS Finn, big bad villain - yet he turns Rey into the Mary Sue the dudebros hated.

I think three things motivated him.
Retconning TLJ
Indulging his cast
Making his own version of what he wanted a SW film to be since he as a kid. And they hired a writer who shared his vision.

Hey all just going to post links to the new trailer for high republic and the panel plus the phases of high republic . 2021-2022 is the first phase . I listened and watched the panel . It all sounds really interesting and I noticed when Claudia Gray was questioned about her next Star Wars book after this high republic one she couldn’t talk about it because it’s top
Secret . Interesting....
The outpost pictured in the picture below double as Jedi temples as each planet has one .There will be a high republic show every month like the Star Wars one on YouTube and the Star Wars book club .

Hey all am trying to stay positive despite dislike for post above and bring you news -
Reddit has spoilers for the new light of the Jedi and very interesting ( well to me anyway - am always looking at ways Ben can come back) and the Nihil sound interesting to me -the darkside seems to enable you to teleport where you want . I know I’ve said this before but we haven’t seen Ben’s force ghost . We have no idea what all his powers are and we know through the Acolyte the dark side is going to be explored more . Ben/kylo is powerful - he put Rey to sleep in TFA and he made her rise in TROS - so far it’s falling in line with Loki’s story in the Disney book published last year where he does the same thing - (awakening the sleeper) . In that same book too which I’ve gone on about a lot in predictions for TROS there are two warriors with swords and the male one has a helmet and Loki is told this is how people exchanged wedding vows not with rings but with swords . Just reminded me of Rey and kylo/Ben . As we also know teleporting is one of Loki’s powers too as well as resurrection ( kylo is an anagram of Loki ).

Contains spoilers :

Star Wars and their anti heroes - ok so Star Wars has gone into a new era the high republic and you’ve got the Nihil who are the villains and their tech is incredible - they can travel hyperspace lanes like the wolves in rebels and teleport all over the place -. They are darksiders ( of course ) . This is their leader masked - Marchion Ro:

Project Luminous/High Republic Era  - Page 2 45c83310

This is him unmasked :


Project Luminous/High Republic Era  - Page 2 9c8f0010

He looks more like a romantic hero , a god( like the Hindu depictions of shiva in art form ) - a king of the elves in a fae underworld or hades type figure . Interesting. He’s chiss obviously and it explains why they are able to teleport since we know the female chiss and children are sky-walkers and we also know from the recent Doctor Aphra comics that the Nihil had path engine devices :
Project Luminous/High Republic Era  - Page 2 Accef810
Project Luminous/High Republic Era  - Page 2 0c4c2b10

What’s also interesting is the use of word predator in how he’s described, his features seem cat like too . It’s interesting because in the comics in particular kylo /Ben is drawn with very lion esque /cat like features , his force signature in TFA is a purr like sound and his hair is like a beautiful lion’s mane . The way too he “hunts “Rey is predatory like cat because he wants her so badly . But as we know cats give lots of love and affection too and the lion is the king . In ancient Egyptian mythology and in Sumerian texts the lion and cat were guardians of the underworld and guides to lost souls . The lion is also associated with the sun just like Ben Solo is ( Ben is a play on words- Hebrew for son which sounds like sun - the sun gives life and is the life force ).
I rewatched TROS again recently and Star Wars always foreshadows - at the beginning Palpatine talks about Kylo/Ben becoming the new Emperor of the galaxy - well he kind of did if he represents the cosmic force and Rey the living force . If true I think & hope they do something different with Ben Solo . He’s tied to Rey so he’s not just another force ghost in the ether .

Anyway thought would share the above I love you

Adding postscript -
Lord shiva carrying his wife Sati , kylo Ren in the comics looking lion esque and info about lions and cats and the sun god ( some of this have posted before ):

And here for me is when he looked and behaved the most lion like of all - strong , courageous, dignified and like a king ;

Hey all I know this is a double post but this is something different so it warrants a separate post - so I got a copy of The High Republic comic # 1 and so far it’s about a padawan Keeve passing her Jedi trials . I really like her - she swears all the way through the trials ( I am like that doing circuit training lol ) and it has some funny moments . Her Jedi master Sskeer is a Trandoshan . What I did think intriguing was the Jedi covenant here seems to be “ for light and life “ whereas in the prequels it’s “ peace and justice “ so interesting to see how Jedi evolve .
The ending of # 1 has padawan Keeve be knighted in true medieval style and King Arthur style with a sword but it’s this that had me a little bit emotional:

Project Luminous/High Republic Era  - Page 2 Ce22f710
Project Luminous/High Republic Era  - Page 2 0585ee10

Hope you can read it

“For light and life -it was all a test ,a test He planned through the force . A test I passed . “

As most of you know most faiths see the idea of life being a test or a game that is rewarded with eternal life at the end . Star Wars runs with this idea a lot - whether it’s Luke’s test with his father or Rey’s test with kylo /Ben /Palpatine. Rey literally dies moreover and is rewarded with life . This is why again and again I think there is more to Ben Solo than we think we know because he seems to have powers like a god at times ie the force sleep he puts Rey into , the way he carries her off like Hades in the underworld, the way he just seems to be in the control centre ie he makes Rey remember who her parents are and he resurrects Rey ( the ultimate magic ) . Anyway time will tell what the story is ultimately but thought would share my findings . Am reading Light of the Jedi next with Charles Soule which has Marchion Ro and the Nihil (though am told they will turn up too in the High Republic comics ).
I love you

Ok this is a triple post - apologies but it’s lockdown in England so have been catching up on reading - so this short story appeared in Star Wars insider magazine and it’s meant to be a prequel short story to Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule and the High Republic comics for anyone interested:Project Luminous/High Republic Era  - Page 2 6ffe6310

Project Luminous/High Republic Era  - Page 2 6e422310
Project Luminous/High Republic Era  - Page 2 Bea30710

Hope you can read it -found this interesting and could imagine Rey and Ben /kylo thinking and communicating telepathically like this and thinking along these lines when coming up against Palpatine- as in the TROS novel Ben thinks Rey is his home and Palpatine in a way behaves like this resistor hub , taking all the power . The whole passage is talking about mechanics and electrics but to be honest it may as well be talking about sex because the language used seems like it’s a metaphor for sex. :

Hey all I will make this my final post here today but maybe we should give High republic a chance . Critics and Fans are coming away from it interested and it did make number one in the bestsellers list ( Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule ). Moreover this is what people are saying about villain Marchion Ro :
