How has this been forgotten about already?
yea i think so. I think people were hoping it was going to be more like the old republic and less SJW garbage.There is a very clear "good star wars" and "bad star wars beginning to form. and this aint on the winning side.
Star Wars fans know it's not meant for them so they don't talk about it.Checkmarks have had their attention span dominated by next product.
>>122181367>>122181376What makes this geared toward SJWs? I know nothing about it.
>>122181343Because its terrible.Pure fucking Reddit.
>>122181343star wars fans don't like itand clickbait writers and twitter shamers don't read it
This is the faggiest rave I have ever seen. They're probably straight edge too, buncha cunts.
>>122181343Ripping off Don Troiani's style I see.
>>122181402Dislikes aside, only 77K views? Jesus Christ that's bad.The comments are hundreds of people just spamming this.
>>122181384Check out the Star Wars Youtube channel, you'll quickly see a pattern with both the designs and the bios for the characters in the High Republic. Add to that when it was touted that Star Wars writing team was incredibly "diverse" and it was nothing but white women, fat white women. A literal rock called "Geode" as the pilot of a ship called "The Vessel".Okay that last one isn't an SJWism, but it's clear these writers have no actual idea how to write.
>>122181343Kind of. Star Wars has gotten itself a bad reputation. When it's own fans want to see the movies, the big public face of the property, die so that first trilogy characters, the core of the series, can live then you've got some problems that purple hair can't fix.
Anyone else find it odd EVERYONE in the image is right handed? I just noticed that. You're telling me one one of them is a lefty?
>>122181384All you need to do is look at the direction Star Wars has been going in within the last few years and you can see it. They had a navigator be a rock for God's sake.>>122181431The firing of Gina Carano and the protection of Kathleen Kennedy will never save them.
>>122181461>They had a navigator be a rock for God's sake.Wasn't this is a fake meme?
>>122181431huge rollout and huge flop.and they've introduced 20+ jedi heroes and 2 new kinds of villains with their own lore.its a total disaster.
>>122181468April Fools jokes don't come out a full month in advance, anon. This is real, and it's as dumb as it sounds.https://www.forbes.com/sites/davidbressan/2021/03/07/meet-star-wars-geodescience-fiction-latest-living-space-rock/?sh=379ecd396434
>>122181541It’s new and too new to call a flop.
>>122181541>20+ Jedi HeroesRemember when the prequels were considered Jedi wank shit?
>>122181343No one's posting it. God I miss having a general.
>>122181384It has women in prominent roles. Can't have that.
>>122181343Every issue of the comic has gotten multiple printings and the books are bestsellers.
>>122181566Specifically, the type of women that only a specific crowd likes and nobody else.
>>122181566>womenTrans-nonbinary you terf shithead.
>>122181546its a flopthey should've focused on 1 or 2 new leads but because they wanted to make a Jedi for every demographic they just dumped everyone out there at once, they're still releasing an intro video for every new character or group and they aren't stopping anytime soon, and the thing is no one cares.they cant break 200,000 views for new character introduction videos, and about half are under 100,000. and THATS ON THE STAR WARS youtube.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4y6eZpmHCe4&list=PL148kCvXk8pDExsot7ytrDO3ZRttxFuxH&index=1the launch trailer from 4 months ago got 2 million views, and the new views are getting in the low hundred thousands or less, its fucking done.
>>122181609Trans- going from one gender (female) to the other (male)nonbinary- doesn't believe in concrete genders like male or femaleHow the fuck, can you be both of those things at the same time?
>>122181566This but unironically. I can count on one hand the number of competent female writers.
>>122181343low quality knockoff of Tales of The Jedi & KOTOR
>>122181644If you don't understand it, it's your problem, bigot.
>>122181384TLDR People who can't do push ups are trying to write stories about characters who can do push ups. but in all seriousness, there are a lot of ways to look at it and unpack whats happening behind closed doors. HR is being steered by a lot of urbanite/onions/redditor types. Pale, unattractive, out of shape hyperaware of the politics around them. These are people that try to use a bunch of university bullshit like "visibility" in their vain attempt to deliver some sort of deeper level of authenticity that isnt there. It's disheartening because we've all seen this before with marvel, with DC and with the countless woke indie bullshit thats been attempted and failed over the last 15 years. Except this time its being done with star wars canon, meaning that this is what the old republic is now for good. The book itself is 3 issues in and its hot fucking garbage. The story is jittery. The writer can't decides if he wants to use word bubbles or splatter each page in a couple words and make the reader play connect the dots. Nobody seems to know how to draw backgrounds either. It just doesn't feel worth 3.99 for 28 pages of this.
>>122181643oh, and more than half the views are anti-high republic just there to downvote the video, so its even worse.
>>122181637They are comic books you moron.
>>122181671And it's exactly this kind of content with this kind of attitude that's putting people off such projects. It's alienating their core audience AND any prospective audience they want to court just isn't there.
>>122181690comic books, ya books, animated shorts
>>122181643Disney seems like they use marvel as a cheap and semi-profitable way to test ideas before committing large sums of money to a new cinematic/media project. Hopefully the steady drop of readers will show them that High Republic is best left alone in it's current form.
>>122181714you know that's bait, right?
>>122181714i actually kind of like them doing it this way.it doesnt interfere with live action canon like the shitty sequels did.Disney were going to go full Young Adult Novel with Star wars when they bought it, because they already had the teenage boy demo locked with Marvel, little girl demo locked with the princess movies, little boy demo locked with disney xd, they needed the teenage girl Young Adult Novel demo, they wanted to turn it into Twilight and Hunger Games, and thats what they did. But because everyone hated that choice in live action, they've moved it straight in the Young Adult Novel realm. And the old Star Wars realm has returned to live action.
>>122181675>urbaniteSo you would say they are some sort of... city slickers?
>>122181675No one under the age of 40 knows how to do any of this shit any more and that's just sad.
>>122181734Yeah I don't see them ever using them in live action (films at least).They did announce one D+ show that would be about the end of the High Republic era.
>>122181778Narrative writing isn't just an art. It's a form. A tradition. It's structured for a reason, and when you disrespect it, things turn to shit pretty quickly. But lately it really does feel like a lost art.
>>122181461>Gina CaranoHow hard is it to pretend that the touch of Ben's creepy little hands don't disgust her.
>>122181756Sadly, it's not far off from a real reply if you posted this thread on Twitter.
>>122181809Not that disgusted, she could probably turn him into a Jewish pretzel if she really wanted to.
>>122181800>latelyI have been witnessing the degradation of literacy for decades now. The introduction of social media has only exasperated the issue.
>>122181399not even reddit likes this slop
>>122181823Hahaha ha she's put all her faith In a man who's using her to get back at his doctor wife for all the years of cheating on him.Another women without a wap
>>122181835I would say a combination of social media and TV Tropes
>>122181835twitter needs to die
>>122181546>>122181580>DUR HURR ITS NOT A FLOPLEL PICK RELATEDyou can't even get PLEBBIT behind it.I don't see them continuing this storyline past the year. Its doing THAT bad.
>>122181857Yeah. America's media dominance and piss poor standards for grammar and elocution after the WWII, is the other.
>>122181816let it stay on twitter, no need giving such trash time here
>>122181461>They had a navigator be a rock for God's sakeI like to imagine that Geode is actually an inanimate boulder, and his partner is insane.>what's that, Geode? You think I should gut this whore for disrespecting me? What a great idea!
>>122181632Not that anon, but the first issue did go into multiple printings. I did notice that at the time there was a lot of speculation around it, though. They also had incentive variant covers which would also have boosted sales some more.
>>122181935What about the other comics? They haven't finished, right? I haven't seen a story time here in months.
>>122181912What about in actual sales.Cause thays the only one I care about it, its like your cock, you can say its big when when I get images of an eraser on the end of a pencil I start to question some shit.
>>122181975I'm not sure Disney wants to show actual sales given the fact that anything not Marvel related has been doing poorly and investors don't want to see low numbers.
>>122181445Imagine if the Sith in this series are all left handed.
>>122181384When they start proclaiming the "first LGBT++ Queer character" in their advertising you know it's fucked.
>>122181947That sounds funnier and more interesting than the actual thing sadly.
>>122181445Why would anyone use the Devil's hand?
what even was this shit?
>>122181675jezzus, right on the spot.Some people just can't handle living in cities. And somehow they all gravitate to the arts
>>122181675It's funny because since it's Star Wars, "diverse" characters would be a non-issue to work with, but their attempts at wokeness are so vain and badly executed that shit just doesn't stick.
>>122181343Star wars hasn't been good right after they threw out the eu I simply don't give a shit anymore you can shit on current marvel, but at least you can read shit where it used to be good and marvel may become good again including dc and have characters that you care about and can still read them and having video games and everything.Everything about star wars is fucking shit nowadays even if it was shit during the eu they were shit stories at least it was dumb fun shit like most Godzilla movies.
>>122181343>All these humansIt's so tiresome.
>>122182169Well none of the actual alien races are black people so it doesn't matter, and Orcs don't exist (as far as I know) in Star Wars so they had to just make some new characters who were black instead.All that diversity in the number of sapient species and none of them are getting used. You ever seen a Trandoshan Jedi? Neither have I, but I'd like to.
>>122181766city slickers would be cool. These people aren't cool. They are just suburban driftwood that washed themselves ashore of some concrete shithole. Raised by tv and cartoons, they have no idea of who they really are. >>122181778>>122181800If someone tried to publish a comic today structured like a marvel was in the early bronze age, people wouldn't know what to do with it. these brainlet stepdads that jack off to donnie cates wouldn't know what to make of it. >>122182169I think jordan peterson broke it down at one point. Basically by aggressively espousing woke ideology these people are able to denote their status within their communities. Their literal careers ride on being the most woke person in the room. >>122182141I don't understand how these people keep getting work. At some point the grift has got to get discovered, right?
>>122182212Well, there is a Trandoshan Jedi in High Republic.
>>122182212Thats not 100% star wars fault. You dont want too many MCs that would require heavy costuming for a live action project. Its hard to transmit emotion through fake masks and skin prosthetics even worse to try to do it through cgi.
>>122182368So while yes, those are valid points. I'm gonna counter with the Lord of the Rings trilogy and Golum/Smeagol. It's very much possible to get a cgi character to emote on the same or near the same level as a real flesh and blood actor, it just takes time, effort, and a lot of computer magic to make it work believably. For heavy costuming Pan's Labyrinth was a god damn beauty to see visually and the actor who wore the Pan costume did some damn fine work there as well. It can be done, it just needs more skill and quality control then Kennedys Hack team can manage.
>>122182212Orcs can be Sith Purebloods, Yuuzhan Vong or Zabrak.
>>122182410I'd also like to bring up MonsterVerse Godzilla, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. They're far more expressive than you'd think for an atomic dinosaur, the world's angriest Pteranodon, and an alien dragon - and not just because they invoke body language real world animals use.
>>122182197mother horse eyes
>>122182245>Raised by tv and cartoons, they have no idea of who they really are.You do realize you are on /co/mics and cartoons, right?
>>122182482Just because we're self aware, doesn't mean we can do anything about it.
>>122181343It's fucking terrible and a blatant rip off of swotor
>>122181714>When you are so low IQ, that you get baited by the saddest pol retards>This confirms my prejudices!Jesus fucking Christ, you people need to get out and get some air.
>>122182726I'd say the same thing if I didn't see the same kind of answers on Twitter everyday.
>>122181343It is so bad, that it is better to be forgotten real fast. Just like the new trilogy.
>>122182692high republic is ten times better than old republic though?>muh revan>muh kreia>muh exile
>>122182889>high republic is ten times better than old republicElaborate
>>122181468No, I read the book. Its a force sensative rock.
>>122182247And he acts like a Human. A trandoshan Jedi would be amazing if people understand WHY Trandoshan's come off as massive dicks.
>>122181675>Except this time its being done with star wars canon,Disney Wars isn't canon.
>>122181343 Star Wars fans who bought comics are a niche within a niche and Disney completely failed to change that. Meanwhile, these comics are looking for an audience outside the fandom but are finding there aren't anyone there. Prequel stories largely only interest the most hardcore fans and High Republic ain't targeting them as Disney is taking them for granted.
>>122183089Probably a power level fag who can't accept that old republic completely destroyed their bullshit star wars downplay
>>122181343It was NEVER worth remembering in the first place.
>>122181343No one cares about Star Wars anymore.
>>122181343It's trash written and drawn by bug people.
>>122182245>Their literal careers ride on being the most woke person in the room.Jordan peterson makes his career on complaining that people want to be woke. These comics suck because they're written poorly by junior writers with high deadlines and low editorial control. The original stories include space nazis and a rag-tag group of freedom fighters of different races and species, whose most well-known commander is a woman.You can get roe 'Muh SJW' than that
>>122181343I think we should think what Star Wars is. A sci-fi world use to tell a story. Or a story about a sci-fi world. The latter is sort of just throwing money at a wall and seeing what sticks.
>>122181675>this is what the old republic is now for good.No, that's 4000-3000 years before the HR.
>>122184215To be honest, i myself am not thrilled with every new force user being "The strongest Jedi/Sith ever". Part of what i like about Kotor 1 and 2 is that 1, what made Revan dangerous was his capabilities as a general and statesman, rather than his raw force power, and 2. Kreia's talk about the true Sith masters of old being a lot more powerfull than the current riff-raff running around proclaiming themselves to be Sith
Anyone actually read the comics?
>>122185788why would we do that when we can just read someone else's post about them and say that we've read them
>>122182889You're a fucking dipshit
>>122185837I guess because that's the main content of HR. I decided to skim some of the comics right now and so far my first impression is "too much stuff at once", especially with the two titles, the main one and Adventures And while I'd say Adventures has an interesting Fox and a Hound main plot, the art was ridiculously crowded with even poorer coloring
Imagine caring about Disney Wars comics when the pinnacle of SW comics was made 30 years ago. *sips whiskey*
>>122185929I remember reading the first issue of the comic with the black girl Jedi. Its ending didn't leave me wanting for more.Now this is how you end an issue #1
>>122186307>Kotor comicsMy negro
