    Default star wars legacy

    any thoughts on the adventures of Cade skywalker?

    It's one of my favourite Star wars comics, if not comics overall. I like that it was a fresh take, but still very Star wars at its core. Plus Imperial Knights, how badass is that? Though I feel that there were some loose ends that weren't tied up, like what happened to the Mandalorians for example.

    Also why was it cancelled?

    Lucasbooks told DHC to end it. No one really knows why.

    That blows, why couldn't they let it be for a year maybe and then ended it. At least then the ending wouldn't have felt so rushed.

    I loved this series. Though it had kind of an anticlimactic ending but still the story was hardcore. One thing that I felt was really sad was R2-D2. The droid has seen so much sh!t through out his droid life it's just amazing and sad that he keeps going on and helping people no matter how bad they will turn out or how good they will turn out.

    That's not what I read.

    "To celebrate its own 15th anniversary of publishing Star Wars in comic form, Randy had convinced everyone at DH to cancel the existing books and start afresh with new ones – including Legacy. The franchise does pretty well for DH so, to my mind, that was a gutsy gamble. From the looks of the panel, I’d say the gamble has paid off."
    ―John Ostrander on the Dark Horse panel at Celebration IV


    But, yeah, it was a great series. Sadly, the title John Ostrander and Jan Duursema moved on to, Dawn of the Jedi, hasn't been nearly as good.

    I trade waited through the first four or so with my son, but it got too dark for him. I liked it OK but it is a pretty gritty. I was thinking about reading the rest but didn't know it got an abrupt ending.

    Dark Horse WISHES they can get the sales back (for any of their current SW titles) that LEGACY had.

    I think Lucasfilm put the kibosh on Legacy b/c of the forthcoming plans to do Eps 7-9. IMO they don't want the possibility of coming up w the same ideas Legacy might one day cover...

    Legacy is my SW title, bar none. I also agree DOJ hasn't been nearly as good, even though its by the same brilliant creative team...

    Legacy was canceled in 2010. I doubt there were any concrete plans for another trilogy back then.

    There were concrete plans for making another trilogy since Return of the Jedi. My dad told me that Lucus planned on making 9 films since the beginning from some interview. And that he would do the prequels first and then Episode 7,8, and 9. Some of the plans changed obviously but overall the longterm goal is getting achieved.

    I don't know about all that, but in the past week or so Lucas said he had treatments for 7-9, but there are a lot of holes. I don't know how concrete treatments are- from the sounds of it, he has outlines for the next trilogy, no whole scripts.

    Your dad was right, kind of. Back when Star Wars came out, and was a hit, Lucas said it was part four of a nine part series. He did the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy, but he also admitted along the way that he never really had any story ideas for what happens after RotJ. The deal with Disney is the first time anyone official has ever confirmed any real plans for more movies.

    Apparently LEGACY was very well regarded at Lucasfilm, so for them to have DH cancel it like that must be b/c it impacted on some future plans of theirs. Hence announcing the forthcoming Eps 7-9, which I'm sure were in the slow planning stages long before then...

    I also think thats why Lucasfilm put the kibosh on the plans for the live-action syndicated SW tv series. They'd rather do the movie trilogy route again instead...

    Star Wars :Legacy was nice enough for me cool stuff from John Ostrander .He did on series called GrimJack very cool stuff for people how like Moorecock's Elric of Melniboné .Check it out if u have the chance i did and i was thunderstruck by the sheer awesomeness of the mind of John .Too bad that legacy got put down by the power that be , not a smart move , but sometimes shit in the can happens .....

    There is absolutely no evidence that Lucas Film asked Dark Horse to end the series. There is, however, a quote from John Ostrander saying it was canceled because DH wanted to reboot the franchise.

    I also think thats why Lucasfilm put the kibosh on the plans for the live-action syndicated SW tv series. They'd rather do the movie trilogy route again instead...
    Star Wars: Underworld is officially still under development. The given reason for the delay is that Lucas is waiting for special effects technology to advance to the point that a live action SW series could be financially viable.
