Is there a tv series or film coming out of this or just books?

I’m confused

Looks like there are going to be many things. A bit short on details yet. Probably more comics and books than anything. But also expect a cartoon at least.

The villains looked a bit odd, but all the rest was cool.

I really liked the look of the Jedi and the various worlds.

That's not surprising. But either way, a book or a comic can be better than a film or series. It doesn't have to be all about live action.

This is gonna be dope af!

I love that they're focusing on publishing and making the books and comics meaningful rather than just a support system. I love this.

Super excited.

Right now there is no announced film/tv connection. But this is phase one. I'm sure it'll jump to the screen eventually if it's successful. But I love that they're building this in print media. This is so exciting!

Like you said, a book series can be just as good or better than a film or tv series.

Well, you will, Mr I-Must-Go-to-Cambodia. You’ve probably infected half of Ireland by now.

I’ve been self isolating actually but I am genuinely really sick.

The further away they move from the Sith in this series, the better, IMO.

Mostly curious about how they will introduce a brand-new threat into what is ostensibly a time of peace-keeping for the Jedi.

And that fascinating question they’re gonna play with. What are the jedi afraid of?


There’s an ideas board in the trailer above in the writers room and it has tons of cool stuff written on it but rival Jedi factions also intrigues me.

I'll be largely content, methinks, so long as said threat is better fleshed out than the Zhat Vash currently has been on Picard....oof

Right??? Such high hopes for that series and it seems in a slow downward tailspin by the week
