There was zero suspense with Game of Thrones and it is the single biggest TV show in the world

Only autist fanboys have read the books

Obviously the currently series is garbage but that doesn't mean coming up with a new story is a bad idea. Only a small number of fanbois would be needed to spoil the story for the rest of everyone.

THAT’S what all the superhero movies have as their hook ... SUSPENSE.

expanded universe was almost exclusively written by white nerds super into the worldbuilding and "lore" so they needed to "diversify" the plot. they forgot their core audience also fit this description

why don't they USE the universe more like a universe? ie, instead of making every film set there a big tentpole production, why not set "smaller" narratives WITHIN the universe? something goofy like an everybody loves raymond middlebrow sitcom, but set in the star wars universe. it doesn't need to implicate the plot of the other films; it would just use the settings.

That is what the original directors of SOLO did, they were fired and the movie was reshot.

i don't even mean using "star wars" characters. i mean entire sitcoms set in the star wars universe with new characters who have no grand purpose, but are just depicted as average citizens doing quotidian stuff.

The Zahn stuff all took place a few years after Return of the Jedi so they would have had to recast the original characters.

Yeah, and it was all pretty inconsequential. Besides, they were lucky to get Harrison Ford back again for one movie. No way they were gonna get him to make reams of movies based on mediocre books playing a space dad

Didn't most of the stories involve the Solo kids growing up? You can write novels about kids, but you generally can't film them. Harry Potter was a fluke
