The Sequel Trilogy had its ups but it had a whole lot downs. The Force Awakens brought Star Wars back with flying colors. The Last Jedi divided the fandom in two. The Rise of Skywalker underwhelmed the fandom greatly and honestly, if it wasn’t for The Mandalorian, my faith in Star Wars would be dead.
Now…do you want to know what the best Star Wars content in the last decade has been? No, it’s not most of the material under Disney. It is the trailers for the Knights of the Old Republic PC game which tell a story so epic that I’ve watched it regularly for the last ten years.
It may be twenty-four minutes long but this compilation of trailers may just be the best thing you’ve seen all day. Check it out.
While watching these cinematic trailer masterpieces I found myself once again getting mad at Disney.
Why is Marvel Studios so successful? Because Kevin Feige realized he had a treasure trove of epic Marvel comics and storylines that he could adapt to the big screen.
Lucasfilm has a treasure trove of emotional, deep, profound storytelling in the Old Republic era that for some reason they’re afraid of tackling. Instead, they’ve created this High Republic era that doesn’t seem NEARLY as interesting as this stuff.
I mean, who doesn’t want to see twenty Jedi fighting twenty Sith on an IMAX screen? That sounds like the coolest thing ever!
What do you think? Do you wish LucasFilm would tackle the Old Republic era? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day. May the Force be with you.
