Huh. I think I'd heard about this, but this actually looks really cool.
Maybe the films are a cesspit of controversy right now, but something like this could be perfect for just being its own thing and not worrying about all that stuff, which always works for me.
The world of Star Wars is an enormous canvas backed by decades of lore (albeit mostly retconned, but that's a discussion for another topic), and I'm curious to see how this turns out. The Clone Wars revival already interests me, so perhaps...
Only time will tell, but I will remain cautiously optimistic.
