Weirdest Star Wars Spinoff Idea

Infinate alternate timelines invalidate all actions taken by characters, so I’m uneasy about both those first proposals on that basis. They’re also much more sci-fi than SW’s usually fantasy, but since this is supposed to be weird pitches, that’s a good thing. Overall, heyre pretty good though, and I appreciate the thought and effort put into them. They both sound very interesting.

Multiverses don’t have to be infinite.

I’ve got an idea for a film that’s basically a Lovecraftian horror story set in the Star Wars Universe.

Two Jedi archaeologists – a master and his newly appointed apprentice – are sent to serve as consultants on a remote backwater planet where the ruins of a long extinct civilization have been unearthed. Apparently, this civilization wiped itself millions of years ago after succumbing to some bizarre pandemic which caused them all to develop conflicting memories about themselves, their peers, and the history of their world, driving them to homicidal madness in the process.

As the archaeological team digs deeper and deeper into the ruins, they, too, begin to suffer from the madness which wiped out this lost civilization, recalling conflicting memories about themselves, their peers, and the universe around them.

Eventually, it is discovered that this plague of madness is caused by some bizarre orb buried at the heart of the ruins – an orb which serves as a window into the multiverse. Anyone who gets too close to the orb and its emanations gains the memories of their counterparts in other timelines, driving them insane in the process.

In the end, the Jedi master sacrifices himself by merging with the orb, defeating it in the process. His apprentice, who suffered prolonged exposure to the radiations of the orb, is left insane, unable to distinguish one reality from another, existing in multiple worlds at once.

Did the fleet scamper off? The movie doesn’t make that clear. We saw at least one regular Star Destroyer blow up. I imagine the kamikaze maneuver on the Super Star Destroyer might have inspired some other desperate or wounded pilots to do the same.

If I remember correctly, multiple Star Destroyers were significantly damaged by deb

Today’s that Polish holiday where you’re supposed to eat a bunch of donuts.

Fat Tuesday is next week.

I’m going to abstain from video games for Lent.

I thought you weren’t catholic.

Lent is observed by https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lent

I always thought it was only observed by Catholics. I’m opposed to it. My goals are to work as little as possible and to experience as much personal enjoyment as possible. Sacrificing things conflicts heavily with those goals.

Trump sock confirmed.

Just made an account here to say that this was absolutely brilliant. ROTJ has such strong foundations brought down by extraneous nonsense, and this really helped the film shine. I really have no complaints about anything besides the audio mixing – it really feels like some scenes are arbitrarily louder or quieter than they should be. Not sure if that’s an issue with your edit or the original, but it was off-putting.

Technically the original unaltered version doesn’t have this problem

Nope. Wrong.

Hai George

No, I’m not George Costanza, though given another decade or two, I’ll probably resemble him.

I meant Lucas.

Your reading comprehension isn’t all that virile, is it? I couldn’t very well resemble Costanza in 20 years if mine head of hair was as robust as Lucas’.

I’d burn all prints of the OOT if it brought down Disney, Hollywood entire, and the false god Mammon.

Are you sure you’re on our side?

My commitment to limited copyright and the public domain transcends any commitment to any Star Wars film.

So essentially your George Lucas.

Oh, yeah, certainly. 'Cause as we all know, Lucas was an outspoken anti-capitalist who didn’t own a multi-million-dollar production company, who didn’t make millions of dollars from IPs he hogged the copyright to, who then didn’t turn around and willingly sell both his company and his IPs to the Malignant Mouse.

Run along home and go play with your Star Wars action figures, little boy. Your attempts at repartee are feeble.

Well, you certainly hate the OUT like he does. Why are you here on a pro OUT site anyway if you hate it so much? Oh and how about you run along home to your special editions while us big boys enjoy the unaltered versions.

I would do anything in my power short of violence to see gross, rampant, malignant capitalism dismantled.

So you ARE basically George Lucas - hunting down every single copy of the Star Wars Holiday Day Special and smash it with a hammer 😉

Now THAT’S repartee which works!

I’ll be at the Galaxy’s Edge theme park soaking in all the Star Wars I can, seeing Episode IX multiple times in Dolby, and enjoying my Disney+ subscription. Life is short, I am going to enjoy what I enjoy.

Feel free to do that. But try to at least retain some class consciousness and remember what Disney is.

Marxism on a Star Wars board. Seriously?

Marxism ain’t all bad. Divorced of the antireligious, anti-nuclear family, and violent revolutionary crap, it’s quite appealing.

Hey man, I totally understand your perspective and why it makes you so angry, but I don’t think anyone here is necessarily against you. I feel like your hostility towards capitalism and Hollywood in general is sorta seeps out sometimes onto other members on here.

I don’t know, I’m not trying to be rude. I get where you’re coming from, but I also don’t think the people on here are against you. Just sometimes your comments feel a little pretentious, and people are going to be less inclined to listen to you that way.

I’m glad we have someone that reminds us every once in awhile that Star Wars is a commercial product as much as it is a fairy tale, but maybe people are just put off a little by your fervor sometimes. But I get it. Just wanted to give you my two cents.

No problem.

I see you missed the forest for the trees, as per usual.

To speak in clear, simple, North American English terms you will hopefully comprehend, I do NOT hate the OOT. I do NOT want all prints of the OOT destroyed. At the same time, I DO hate gross, rampant, malignant capitalism and I DO want gross, rampant, malignant capitalism destroyed. I hate Disney, I hate ALL of Hollywood, because Hollywood is a manifestation of gross, rampant, malignant capitalism. I would do anything in my power short of violence to see gross, rampant, malignant capitalism dismantled. If that “anything” included sacrificing all prints of the OOT — leaving the world with less-than-perfect fan restorations and recreations — I would sacrifice those prints — not willingly, but without hesitation.
