<em>Star Wars: The Clone Wars</em> To Return With New Episodes
Time

I’ve never been that interested in TCW or Rebels, but I could easily imagine myself jumping in if there were movie edits of the shows. Does anyone know if there’s someone in our midst who is / has been juggling with this kind of an idea? A story arc in a single movie or two with all the filler cut out? To me, that would probably be the most enjoyable way of watching (or just look up all the filler episodes and skip them).

I always watch filler because one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so I think I should see everything for myself to form my own opinion. I encourage everyone else to do the same.

Your thoughts on the Episode IX title - <strong>'The Rise Of Skywalker'</strong> - a NON-SPOILER thread
Time

I said it refers to an individual because the title is singular, but really, my point was really about the usage of a name. And no, this isn’t about it becoming a title, because it’s not Rise of the Skywalker.

Okay, here’s my theory. There’s a big showdown in the guts of the Death Star, all the Force Ghosts are present, everyone’s about to be blown up or something, and then Kylo has a big change of heart and self-sacrifices so that his beloved Rey (and co.) can escape. As he does so Palpasnoke is screaming “no, you are Master of the Knights of Ren!” and Kylo - just a Leia’s theme/Force theme mash-up swells - says “I am a Skywalker, like my mother before me!” before going kaboom.

I mean, I guess that’s not that far off from what I’m counting on. However, I hope they don’t have Ben sacrifice himself. Instead, have the Force Ghosts do that.

You mean like The Phantom Menace?

That’s a lot more vague.

I’m pretty sure Attack of the Clones is supposed to evoke B-movies. It’s a fine title. The only problem with it is it doesn’t reflect the actual film, as the clones never attack anything, but they do fight, which is pretty close.

Then L’apogée de Skywalker it shall be ?

What the fuck is an apogée? Then again, I actually can’t think of any French word for rise. Let’s see what Google says. Hausse, montée, relèvement, naissance- wait seriously? How do you translate rise to birth, Google? Then there’s crue, which is another word I’ve never heard of.

The saga titles haven’t sounded Star Warsy to me since The Force Awakens, and it’s only by chance they picked that one. The Last Jedi is derivative of Return of the Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker refers to an individual. Those things just feel wrong to me.

The trailer was good, though, and thank god they did one of the only things I hoped they’d do but didn’t think they’d have the courage to do.

The Force Awakens - PG edit
Time

All pre-Disney Star Wars movies except RotS were PG, and there’s good reason RotS wasn’t. However, we live in an age where PG-13 is the standard, so movies that back in the day would’ve been PG are now PG-13. That doesn’t mean the films themselves are any less kid-friendly. TFA is perfectly suitable for a 7 year old or even a 5 year old. There’s nothing traumatizing in it, unless you count the death of a mentor.

Being the responsible parent that I am, I’m not entirely comfortable with him watching an M-rated movie (Australia’s equivalent to 12 or PG-13).

Can’t help but laugh thinking of the ESRB’s M for Mature.
