“The Anarchists are right in everything; in the negation of the existing order and in the assertion that, without Authority there could not be worse violence than that of Authority under existing conditions. They are mistaken only in thinking that anarchy can be instituted by a violent revolution… There can be only one permanent revolution — a moral one: the regeneration of the inner man. How is this revolution to take place? Nobody knows how it will take place in humanity, but every man feels it clearly in himself. And yet in our world everybody thinks of changing humanity, and nobody thinks of changing himself.”

If he was in the Empire I feel like we would have heard of him by now if he had any real power or relevance. I think Hux himself really was that figure.

There’s always room for something like this in SW. Maybe he was more at the planet level of politics and influence.

My stance on revising fan edits.

Anakin and Dormé (Padmé’s handmaiden) are actually siblings. Before she was sold as a slave, Shmi had a relationship with Dormé’s father and gave birth to Dormé herself. However, she was sold after that, so she never had the possibility of seeing them again, and could never find them again. A year after all of that, she gave birth to Anakin. Therefore, Anakin and Dormé were siblings who didn’t know to be siblings. This is perhaps the most crazy of my head-canons, and I admit it could feel a little stretched. But I love Rose Byrne, so I wanted to give her character a little more importance in the overall universe XD.

Oh so it’s one of those threads now. Geez, I feel like I’m on Reddit.

Everyone has some degree of consciousness within the Force after death. The special Jedi training just gives them the added ability to manifest in the physical world. But basically everyone still exists in the netherworld, except for people who were completely consumed by the Dark Side (not even necessarily Dark Side users, but also people who were just consumed by selfish, negative emotions, like Tarkin or Jabba).

But we can’t turn back. Fear is their greatest defense. I doubt if the actual security there is any greater than it was on Aquilae or Sullust. And what there is is most likely directed towards a large-scale assault.

I think this is actually Canon. In fact, George Lucas said multiple times that Padmé and Anakin met again after death, so Padmé is of course still part of the Force.

I prefer to think the average person becomes part of a combined consciousness, which is actually the ideal state post-mortem. Lightsiders who retain their individuality are essentially bodhisattvas, while their darkside equivalents are ghosts trapped in a Sheolic quasi-existence.

Honestly my head canon after TLJ was that Luke didn’t really “die” from Force projecting himself, but confronting his greatest failure (Kylo Ren) and forgiving himself caused Luke to achieve enlightenment, and he just became one with the Force as the next step of his ascension.

I had hoped Luke would’ve played a role that was different from the Force ghosts that had appeared before, but it wasn’t that different honestly. That is something I liked about Acbagel’s Sequel Trilogy edits, because he does add elements that try and depict Luke that way. But I guess it is a difficult thing to balance, giving him more influence on the story without taking away from the new characters.

There is a Star Wars Spring Time for Palpatine that a deranged ex-Imperial officer created in the aftermath of Uncle palps’ death.

I’m just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe.

Star Wars has 3 eras: The eras are 1977-1983(pre Expanded Universe), (1983-2014) expanded universe, or (2014- now) Disney-bought version. Each are valid.

Max Rebo has arms. I will never accept otherwise.

Since all of the new shows are inevitably leading to the ST, I think I’ll stick to Neverar’s Starlight and make a light edit of TLJ, with a “Luke Lives” ending and stick to that as the end of my canon. I do enjoy elements of the old EU but not very many, and I’m guessing we’ll get a Thrawn Trilogy Redux in Ahsoka with her and the Rebels crew (and probably Luke too?) so maybe best of both worlds? Still don’t like the reset in status quo in TFA/TLJ but if fleshed out enough over the next few years in actual good shows and books, then I might be okay with it. Sadly lots of setup going Exegol/Emperor’s Clone/TROS’s way which I want to disregard completely, so I’ll try to just headcanon that Snoke was a failed attempt by Palpatine to be cloned and remain in power I think, something like that. Still unfortunately bad but oh well…

I doubt they’ll involve Luke in the Mandoverse Thrawn story beyond just a cameo, at most.

Realistically you’re probably right, but I half expect him to show up and be really important in at least one episode… regardless of what we think here, the response to Luke in Mando and then BOBF was overwhelmingly positive, I’m sure Filoni would want to play with him at least a little bit more.

The Star Wars films are mythologized retellings of historical events, which each succeeding trilogy being less historically accurate than the one previous.

The OT is the trilogy that most closely recaptures the actual events, though there’s still a gradient. SW is the most accurate; the timeline’s compressed, and some of the superficial details (lightsaber colours, for instance), are wrong, but you can be assured that you’re not being grossly misled. TESB is murkier; Anakin & Vader were actually separate individuals all along, and the timeline’s even more compressed this time around. ROTJ is the most mythologized; Luke & Leia weren’t siblings, and there never was a second Death Star, though there probably was a climactic battle between Imperial & Rebel forces which occurred concurrently with some encounter between Luke, Vader, and Palpatine.

The PT is heavily mythologized. If the Jedi ever had a Chosen One prophecy, it was applied to Anakin/Vader retroactively. Anakin/Vader had a human father. The Clone Wars were multiple conflicts involving several disparate parties which were condensed into a single major war with two sides. The Jedi rebellion/Jedi purge were longer/more complicated events. Boba Fett may or may not have been the son of Jango Fett, who may or may not have been a clone template, but he wasn’t a clone himself.

There’s virtually nothing about the ST that matches actual history. It’s just a nth-generation retelling of the OT. There probably was an Admiral Holdo who died in a kamikaze attack in some battle with Imperials, but that’s about as close to historical accuracy as it gets.

Funny story, I once had a whole video essay scripted with precisely this premise (slightly less extreme conclusions, but yea) - it’s a neat thing to think about, pretty cool!

To contribute to the headcanon thread, I’m currently in a phase where I’m sort of whatever on the whole star wars thing,
I still think the movie trilogies are the most important, and, basically, that each of the three stand separately and possibly benefit from some “supplementary material” which strengthens their stories.

For the OT, it’s pretty much fine as it is, I prefer something like the semi-specialized or 4Kxx. For the PT (HDTV DVD versions), I think it benefits from the 03-04 Clone Wars and possibly the new canon 4-issue Obi-Wan and Anakin comic.
For the ST, it kinda needs the most supplementary material unfortunately (I think chiefly due to a less than adequate setup and a downright inadequate conclusion), so there’s the Rise of Kylo Ren 4-issue comic, I also remember kinda liking the Bloodline novel, Resistance Reborn and the Before the Awakening short stories, and some of the other comic one-offs are pretty good (although most of all this literature stuff is just that - a supplement that provides a little more context), and also since this continuity doesn’t have the Heir to the Empire trilogy, I think Aftermath does okay.
Movies-wise, I like TFA as-is, then ebumms’ extended TLJ and ideally I’d like to bin TROS, but if it has to stay, for me, some minor storylines and concepts from DOTF I consider canon and also a post-TROS fanfic (yes, yes, but it fits quite faithfully I think) called The Final Steps is essential (unless the author botches the ending, lol, it’s still a WIP).

Oh and something I never mentioned, Andor - that series, more than being a supplement, for me is canon all the way.

There were also some legends stories I’ve enjoyed but this is the point at which I’m not really concerned with did it happen or no, I just enjoy the stories (honorary mention to DOTJ comics)
