Star Wars Holiday Special Cartoon’ - 10 minutes long, from the ‘Musta Costa Fortune’ YouTube channel:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UC2Q6ANLXQ0
 

Been a big fan of this short ever since I saw it and it really bugs me that they never made a proper SW cartoon in the 70’s/80’s ore like this. Droids was reasonably fun (especially the first arc), but it really is a shame that they never spent their money on making a full series more like this instead, especially since I’ve heard stories about a Luke/Han/Leia cartoon being rejected in favour of Droids. I don’t know if that’s true though, so don’t quote me on that.

PS. Shouldn’t this technically be in the OT Random Videos thread? At least I think you could copy-paste it to that thread as well since it’s of that era.

Very cool and interesting conversation with Nick Gillard. I never knew he turned down Lord of the Rings or worked with the Moscow State Circus. I sure did miss his presence in the Sequel Trilogy.

"Pleasure’s fun. It’s great, but you can’t keep it going forever; just accept the fact that it’s here and it’s gone, and maybe then again, it will come back, and you’ll get to do it again. Joy lasts forever. Pleasure is purely self-centered. It’s all about your pleasure: it’s about you. It’s a selfish, self-centered emotion, that is created by a self-centered motive of greed. Joy is compassion. Joy is giving yourself to somebody else, or something else. And it’s a kind of thing that is, in its subtlety and lowness, much more powerful than pleasure. You get hung up on pleasure; you’re doomed. If you pursue joy; you will find everlasting happiness.” - George Lucas

Jyn’s Heroes - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Meets Kelly’s Heroes

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZgHzRm66a8 - 3 minute video from the RNKFanArt youtube channel

The blurb: ‘What if Rogue One had not been made in 2016 but in 1970? It might have looked like this. Rogue One re-imagined as the WWII caper film Kelly’s Heroes starring Clint Eastwood. Music and font from the film released in 1970. Special thanks to T. C. for recreating the font from the film.’

Star Wars Episode 2 Fan Speculation Trailer’:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUvOE-QZQQE - a 2 minute AOTC trailer, at the webtubester youtube channel
 

^ IIRC this was from 2001 - labelled as a ‘leaked trailer’ it had a few of us fans fooled and eagerly awaiting Attack Of The Clones - with good reason… it also turned out to be far better than the actual film was.

Took an age to download via kazaa on a 56k modem - seemed everyone was trying to download it for a long while back then…

Any thoughts on this? As a fan of both Legends and several aspects of the new canon, Rebels and The Mnadalorian especially, I’m very much onboard with this. Though I do hope they make it their own thing and don’t just steal from the original story, but with Ahsoka being the new “focus” I don’t think that’s going to happen.

Same here mate, I’d be very much open to the idea of Thrawn - and would be surprised if we didn’t see some of his behind the scenes string-pulling (or inferences to it) across The Mandalorian, Book Of Boba Fett, and Ahsoka.

It should be interesting to see if Thrawn will be the main reason these shows intersect with future stories and culminate into a climactic story event - if that is still the plan given the Ranger Of The Republic series being ‘on hold’?
 

Yet another quality speculative (and well researched) ideas video from EckhartsLadder.

I originally assumed that Thrawn would be the main villain of the Ahsoka series as it was her episode in The Mandalorian that name-dropped him and that elements of the other shows would cross over, but it wouldn’t surprise me (and I hope this is the case) if they’ll make some kind of “Thrawn miniseries” to connect and conclude all 3 series (or four? Is Rangers of the New Republic still happening?), kinda like what the Netflix Defenders series did with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, etc.

I feel like the conclusion to The Mandalorian has to be related to the retaking of Mandalore, possibly against Bo Katan, but this could of course tie to Thrawn’s plans as well. It’ll be interesting to see what *The Book of Boba Fett will turn out to be, but with Fett being a Mandalorian of sorts himself, and considering how Ahsoka took part in the Republic occupation of Mandalore, I can see all three (or more) series crossing over with this as it’s main focus.

It would not surprise me if Luke at the end of season 2 of The Mandalorian was actually a clone , sent by Thrawn to kidnap Grogu . It would be a perfect Thrawn thing to do . Would also go a long way for me in explaining why something looked " off’ about Luke’s appearance . Maybe the wonky CGI was intentional and the hiring of that fan vfx artist is a smoke screen ?
