They covering their own butts to get some money over their failures at high republic, the sequels, firing of Gina and insulting the fans over the years. They still don't get my money that I'm done with their bad management and woke agenda.

And they are not wrong about the cherry picking from the EU…

You act like it's some kind of victory and it is. For Disney. They own the rights to everything old and new and so they're going to use every tool they can to make money. Publishing the old books is basically free money now since all they have to do is have it printed and everyone will buy it up even if they have the originals. They don't have to admit defeat or say they were wrong. They just laugh all the way to the bank.

Star Wars aftermath is one of the most god awful books I ever tried to read. The writing was awful, with a story that made no sense, that contained not one, but two gay storylines, both of which were put in to simply say "I'm gay." That's it. Absolutely no other reason other than that. One character literally said "i like girls." and that was the end of the storyline. That was the first time I thought "Why is this even in Star Wars when it wasn't before?" This was before I was initiated to the truth.

And I saved this line from the book because it was the minute I threw the it down and decided i wasn't going to finish it. The first time I ever did that with a star wars book. Chuck Wendig's writing:
"The TIE wibbles and wobbles through the air, careening drunkenly across the Myrran rooftops – it zigzags herkily-jerkily out of sight."

I highly doubt they will just abandon this High Republic abomination just yet until they officially letting go most of the Lucasfilm staff, including K.K. Hasbro should be much more careful if they don't end up bankruptcy due to another major IP failure. 😉

The Thrawn trilogy was amazing. Plenty of excellent characters; Thrawn and Mara Jade to name two. However, I will not buy these or anything from Disney. They're dead to me.

So much damage has been done to the franchise its no longer worth it, so At this point just let Star Wars Die or Kill it if You have To.

Not many people know this but back in 2014 (when Star Wars died) the Lucasfilm Story Group decided that George Lucas Canon was no longer Canon and would become Legend…… that was the first mistake by the LSG. "On April 25, 2014, the Lucasfilm Story Group rebooted the Star Wars universe by retiring much of the Expanded Universe storyline and rebranding it as "Star Wars Legends." They said this was to fix an issue where Chewbacca was killed in one of the novels 25 years after the Battle of Yavin. Well the second mistake the LSG made was to create a new trilogy in the era after Chewbacca died…… they should have created the new trilogy following straight after Return of the Jedi ….. then they wouldn't have removed 37 years of great Star Wars stories from canon. I am a fan of Star Wars since 77 and George Lucas Canon is Star Wars Canon… not what Disney is giving us through the Lucasfilm Story Group. I will not be surprised if the Story Group has plans in the future to redo Episodes I to VI to fix them the Disney way.

I hope Star Wars fans have wised up and won't be supporting the franchise anymore especially after Gina Carano.

I stopped acknowledging anything after The Last Jedi. Didn’t see Rise of SkyWalker, so it’s helped me maintain my love for the original stuff. I pretend the original trilogy is the only movies that ever came out.

I personally think the reason why Disney won't completely get rid of the high republic yet is they want to see how the first season of the Acolyte will do and that will decide to kill it or not.

This has to be one of their biggest admits that they failed… Then again if they make money out of it, they will no doubt spend it all on creating more High Republic.

Honestly I feel like I live in bizarro world, in which the terrible stuff is successful and is given all the awards and money, while they take advantage or let the good stuff rot.

Either way I really wish all this madness just to end.

Wow! It's almost as if the EU was actually…Good?! In spite of its many flaws, the stuff I read & played was pretty fun back in the day.

Fucking hypocrites. They toss the EU aside like garbage, then pluck a few feathers off of it to put into "Canon projects", and now they're bringing EU content back into distribution because their current lineup is absolute dogshit.

Kathleen Kennedy made the decision to get rid of the EU and close LUCASARTS. Those were her decisions, not Disney. Just like she talked Iger into going with basing Galaxy's Edge on her trilogy instead of the OT/PT (aka REAL Star Wars).
Horrible mismanagement since day 1.

I have all three of these books in paper back They should have released the Thrawn trilogy and the Darth Bane trilogy not just the first book in the trilogys. I would recommend The Thrawn trilogy to any star wars fan.

The EU was always trash. But, compared to the Disney effluent, it's high art. It's just funny that they have to lean on the EU because of their total failure.

Kneon… We know that Kennedy's Lucasfilms has been nothing but a disaster, everyone at this point knows it. The executives and shareholders are very aware of, but they will do nothing… They had more than ample opportunities to step in fix this, and they didn't… The see what sells but they will still favor Kennedy because that is Hollywood culture.

People on the whole do not like garbage. This is exactly why The (lets get) high republic is failing, because it's utter rubbish, complete garbage. #FireKathleenKennedy

I wish they rerelease some of the original audiobooks. I bought Jedi Search a year or so ago and wanted the audiobook, but learned Audible only has the abridged version of the novel. Also I want Survivor's Quest copy that isn't worth over a hundred dollars.
