STAR WARS: REBELS - New animated series
Time

Anakin Starkiller said:

I actually successfully guessed the title of the show, but I was more concerned with the idea of a show set between ANH and TESB starring the OT characters. It’s a shame that’s not what we got. Marvel tackled that subject instead. If you’re gonna give us new characters, though, at least make them interesting. Ezra is generic AF, Sabine didn’t get proper development until season 3, and Zeb just feels unnecessary (although I guess it’s worth noting I find him slightly more endearing than most characters of his archetype), and instead, we coulda had Rex from the start. It’s kinda weird they didn’t make Ahsoka part of the main cast, as she could have easily filled Kanan’s place as the young Jedi’s master. That said, Kanan and Hera are pretty good characters.

Most of the character problems are directly the result of kids show

Sabine not getting killed by Vader(in that cool sudden way)

Ezra not joining the dark side(thus making his character interesting).

Sometimes I wonder if I’m even a Star Wars fan anymore.

Elements from the OT which continue to resonate with me:

  • The visuals.
  • The main protagonists.
  • Luke’s story.
  • The music.

Otherwise, I feel I’ve outgrown it all and probably did years ago. A series about white hat heroes battling black hat villains in a swashbuckling setting just doesn’t hold enduring appeal to someone who constantly wishes in their heart of hearts that Ingmar Bergman had created the films instead.

I feel the exact same way. I think the new Disney marketing blitz doesn’t help. I find it hard now to even think of Star Wars films as real movies because Star Wars as a brand is just everywhere. I think of Star Wars like I think of Sprite or Windex. Just a product.

Good…to be honest I feel that star wars will be remembered while the shit you like will be forgotten much like you

Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **
Time

SilverWook said:

An anthology film about the Falcon’s previous owners might actually work. Ending with Lando getting it. If the ship is still as old as it used to be.

Or make a horror movie about a bunch of people who went slowly crazy on the falcon because of something they picked up and the last shot of the film is of lando coming across the ship and seeing a hand print on the window. The thing driving them crazy gone mysteriously along with the bodies of the owners. The ship landing seemingly by itself on the dock on cloud city. Setting up that maybe there is something outside of the force…lovecraftian eldritch abominations that look at the force and laugh at its impotentence.

What do you HATE about the EU?

RayRogers said:

People waste their money on the new EU books. Not worth the paper they’re printed on. Same goes for the comics, video games, action figures, the dumbass Funko Pop shit, etc.
Just get the discs cause Streaming can go…
IDGAF about a lot of the backstory either.

Something like the Valley of the Jedi, perhaps? I’ve long been of the view that that particular plot point was inspired by an idea Lucas had for Episodes VII-IX in the days before ROTJ.

No…but the basic idea of a force enhancing crystal was there

I honestly don’t care if this is spoiled for me. Not sure why, but I don’t.

I don’t care either. The ST joins TCW in the realm of interesting but essentially inconsequential possible worlds which, to me, aren’t part of the “real” SW Universe.

I hope the next two sequels come out all right, but I have no real emotional investment in The Adventures of Rey Random to speak of, so I remain an apathetic sumbitch.

Yes…the vong were the shit stain that destroyed everything.

At least with “imperial warlord number 1235” you can downplay them in your mind. Hell the reborn movement was the “new empire” for a long time before “crystal star” came…now hardly anyone remembers them.

Not the vong…they literally dug their claws into everything. Turning palpatine into a revan wannabe(he wanted to save the galaxy from the vong). Thrawn became this vong hunter and his people became the sworn enemy of the vong. The only Vong related thing that worked out was the legacy comic and how racial tensions led to the rise of a new fascist galactic government

ANH - Skyhopper scenes

SilverWook said:

It seems like it was a missed opportunity to not have young Anakin be a hot shot Skyhopper pilot in TPM.

If you’re committed to making the Prequels as mediocre as possible, it isn’t.

well the prequels are worse than twilight so its not like we have a good story to begin with

TV’s Frink said:

Impscum, Alderaan, and Mala (to a lesser extent since she seems to enjoy fanedits) exist in this place entirely to tell other people how wrong they are for liking the things they like.

I have never ever told anyone that he/she is wrong for liking whatever they like. I do not care in the slightest if people like bad stuff like TFA.

its still better than the twilight level awful that is only liked because of the 80s return of the jedi

sorry…but empire strikes back is nothing special in the story department(in fact i would argue that many of the awful habits of the post empire strikes back franchise was born in empire strikes back)…it was kasden, not lucas who made empire strikes back awful story work for the most part.

empire strikes back gave the I AM YOUR FATHER TWIST which fucking destroyed darth vader and made him a boring caricature
