Remember when we told you how fans wanted Netflix to bring a Star Wars: The Old Republic series? Well, that petition has really been gaining traction since we last mentioned it. Now it’s closing in on 200,000 signatures and it’s not too late for you to get your signature in. They need fewer than 5,000 to meet their goal. If you want to see Disney agree to bring an Old-Republic-era Star Wars series to Netflix, then head on over, read it, and add your sig to the list. It only takes a minute and it’s really easy to do.
Why The Old Republic?
“The Old Republic era is a pivotal point in the Star Wars timeline because that’s where everything changed, from the Jedi Civil War and the fall of Revan, the First Jedi Purge, and an omnipresent darkness that not only watched the chaos from afar but also kick-started the downfall. Our fanbase would love to see this on Netflix, and I feel that you would enjoy creating and adapting these stories as much as we would enjoy watching them. ”
“Why Netflix was chosen was because of the wealth of great content they have produced over the years, such as Narcos, House of Cards, and especially everything that Marvel has done and is still currently working on. Not only that, but Netflix can serve as a platform to tell these stories as they were meant to be portrayed: dark, foreboding, and a touch on the mature side. This can also give us fans our healthy dose of Star Wars while we’re waiting on the new movies or the new season of Star Wars Rebels.
