    Default Project Luminous

    https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Project_Luminous

    This is the big novel/comics event that's coming out next year. Wonder if it has any connection to the revelations in Rise of Skywalker?

    It's hard to say what connections it could have with Rise of Skywalker but given that it started just as filming began and the two films screened for the writers were A New Hope and Empire I'm thinking it'll have more to do with the OT characters.

    I can't help but feel this project is just going to get compared to Shadows of the Empire. When Luminous inevitably sucks people will say that a multimedia project from 1996 is still better then anything Disney can create.

    I think the ESB/ROTJ gap is mostly being handled by Marvel's relaunch of the monthly comic starting in January. Some of the gap has also been covered by the books.

    There's been a few multimedia projects and crossovers since but they haven't quite had the same impact or push that SOTE had.

    Could be connected to the movie, but it could be something else. I mean, does LucasFilm want to continue the sequel trilogy in spinoff films or in the tie-ins?

    Given that the current tie-in creators have been turning out stuff better then what we were getting in 1996 on a regular basis, I find that a long shot, at the very best. Besides, why compare the movies to the tie-ins, givne that they're different mediums?

    The Disney era output has been mediocre at best, outright garbage more often then not. Just compare 1991's Heir to the Empire against 2015's Aftermath and you'll understand why fans still prefer the old EU. So yeah, I think it's a safe bet that by this time next year Shadows of the Empire will still be regarded as a better multimedia project then Luminous.

    Eh, while I've liked a good deal of the Marvel comics I definitely think the comics we were were getting from Dark Horse, especially in the mid 90's, were a lot better. For one, the pacing was so much better, some of the stories we've gotten so far had no business being as long as they were.
