RUMOR: New Star Wars Show Centers Around Time Travel

Industry insiders revealed to website We Got This Covered that a new Star Wars show features a slate of new characters who try and go back in time in order to change the outcome of various key events within a Galaxy Far, Far Away. One episode will apparently see them trying to kill a young version of Darth Vader. So far, nothing’s been confirmed by Lucasfilm.

Let me say that I'm REALLY not a fan of this at all. One of the things I've always loved about Star Wars is that when something happens, there are repercussions and consequences for people's actions. What characters do matters in the Star Wars universe.

If I want time travel, I'll throw in one of the movies or episodes of any of the many incarnations of Star Trek there are. Adding something like time travel to Star Wars feels like an easy way to bring back old characters. It takes away an element of these films that separates them from other franchises out there.
