Re: Would post-Empire New Republic accept a New Jedi Order?

Agreed, Mister James.

Even just having Luke and the beginnings of his new order on the fringes of the story would be plenty for me. A Thrawn/Daala villain would be a breath of fresh air.

Personally I'm hoping the new movies don't make the Jedis (or the creation of a new Jedis Order) the main focus of the story.
The plural of Jedi is Jedi.

But I also think the Jedi Order has changed numerous times since its inception and that the version we saw during the prequel trilogy reflects just one period of the Order. During earlier times, there probably were married Jedi with children.
I agree. I haven't read any EU novels, but I was under the impression that the New Jedi Order that Luke creates is run substantially differently from the archaic stuffy one of Yoda and Windu that we see in the prequels.

Not to mention the heavy focus they've gotten in TCW...

I'd rather just go back to the ragtag group of characters again, with just one of them that happens to be a Jedi.

And surely it's possible to come up with a worthy villain in SW who's not an emporor or Sith Lord...
The conflict between the good and evil as embodied in the war between the Sith and Jedi is at the center of the Star Wars Saga. You can't have SW without a Sith Lord.
