Miche, you had plenty of opportunity to make it clear you weren’t being prejudiced, and you didn’t take that opportunity. Nobody cares if it was just a minor offence, your attitude is unwelcome. There’s no room for intolerance here.

Please Eddie, just let it be. There are bigger problems in this world than me. 😃

HER? What an inconsequential piece of information that has blown my mind.

Snooker is trans; it’s only fair to provide ample warning so as to avoid accidental misgendering leading to unpleasant misunderstandings.

Ample warnings… we ought to speak as we like mate.

I think this along with your “guetto” comment in NFBisms Obi-Wan edit genuinely warrants a ban. This site shouldn’t tolerate racism or transphobia of any kind, especially from this chud.

Taking a little grain of sand, and turning it into a sand storm. Continue on with the circus.

kindly fuck off from this site

You can repeat it one thousand times if you want, I will participate as much as I want to. I ought to censor myself though in order to speak about anything as usual.

‘censor yourself’ come on – a racist who keeps quiet about being racist is still a racist who has no place here. plus the person who made the thread doesn’t want you here so the least you could do is not post here anymore lmao

I’m sorry this has gotten so off-topic, NFBisms.

Why is my description of the character racist? I shall explain it, considering your lack of understanding. Ghetto films like the Northamerican film Moonlight (2016) or maybe Miami Connection (1986) show certain characters from different backgrounds with certain acting styles that are persistent and realistic.
But, when this type of acting style and form is done in Star Wars, it is very out of place.
Characters like Lando Calrissian, or Mace Windo did not show in their work such a thing. Which is one of the reasons I think they are beloved characters, they blend perfectly into the world.

What do you want me to do? Ignore that this acting style exist? I think not.

I still maintain my criticism of the character and her place in the story even if I disagree with certain other users on things like acting, performance, etc. And obviously no one deserves to get hate for anything superficial in the real world regardless of how anyone may personally feel about their role in a production. Make no mistake, my issue is a writing one, not anything else.

This is your edit NFB and I trust given the decisions you’ve made so far that you’ll find a way to smartly integrate everything in a way that matches the quality of other shows like BCS and BB.

Of course, the actor was doing her job, I only gave a clear characteristic in her style. The bigger culprit here is the direction, casting, scrip writing and just overall performance, making her not very believable.

Here are a few noticeable problems with the Third Sister surviving Order 66 in the Temple:

  1. In Revenge of the Sith, the only reason the younglings thought that Anakin was not part of the massacre taken place by Clone battalions, was because he came into the chambers alone. Had Anakin entered the room while being followed by 15 troopers (which they’ve seen killing Jedi, yet somehow are peaceful towards him), YOU WOULD NEVER EXPECT ANAKIN TO BE HELPING THE ORDER.

  2. The clones didn’t just kill internees in the Temple, they shot at them for multiple rounds. They didn’t leave anything to chance (if you don’t believe me, go rewatch the sequence of Order 66 and you’ll see groups of clones shooting at the corpses in the floor).

  3. Even if the Third Sister did survive the blade punctured into her, and the clones “checking” the corpses, she would have had to stay in the room. Pretending to be dead until Obi Wan and Yoda arrived. The Temple was plagued of clones waiting for surviving Jedi to return. The only time when she would have been able to escape the Temple was when Obi Wan and Yoda destroyed all the security forces that were there. She would have know perhaps that Obi Wan was fighting to save Jedi.

So turning things around after a few key points. What do you think is the background for this fixation on Kenobi? Did she think that Utapau was somehow free of clones? Why would she think he specifically survived the Order?

Why did she not worry about Yoda at all?
Well my only conclusion is that she has seen the entire series already. Through the force, and narrated by the Wills no doubt… Why isn’t she hunting Yoda, Mace Windu, Ki Adi Mundi, Plo Koon, etc… I know why, because she saw the movies. Younglings and even most Jedi didn’t know each other’s padawans. There’s an episode in Clone Wars where Anakin and Ashoka fight alongside Luminara and Barris (S2E6) and Barris introduces herself to Ashoka. Ashoka is much older than Reva at this point and she has been in several battles, as is Barris. The fact that Reva knows Anakin is Obi Wan’s apprentice can only be explained by the fact that Reva watched the movies.

I like Reva though! I’m actually trying to find a way to include her a bit more as this goes on without it feeling out of left field for who’s mostly been a background player

Why do you like the character? Also, out of curiosity why shift the focus onto a secondary role. I personally found her as stuck up, ill headed, guetto stereotypical want to be baddy. Not sure why anyone would want to include even more screen time.

The problem with her moreso is she serves a specific purpose in the story, that of being the impetus that sets the events of the show in motion, but the way she goes about it and gets involved require so much mental hoop-jumping to justify that it becomes nonsensical. Couple that with the fact that she is overrepresented as a character whose actions effect almost every major character in the OT and yet she exists ONLY in this show makes her come off as a fanfiction character rather than a utilitarian function of the story, someone to be admired as a prop by the writers rather than be genuine part of what’s going on without overstating it.

Even her creator in an interview said that he initially believed the only natural conclusion for her in the story was to die because her purpose exists solely here, yet Disney couldn’t even help themselves not to sequel bait for a second season on this supposedly “limited series” before it was released. So for her character, I’d suggest taking a cue from George:

“ It’s stylistically designed to be that way and you can’t undo that. But we can diminish the effects of it.”

You can’t remove her completely because she’s integral to later events, but de-emphasizing her role in how Leia gets kidnapped and why Obi-Wan leaves goes a great deal towards making her significantly more tolerable in the narrative. If she was just an Inquisitor who stood out above the rest rather than, effectively, a tertiary protagonist of the show, I would have appreciated her role much more.

The dialog, motifs, and just overall development is limited. And sadly her role is required in the story.

These functional characters or props as you have called them, is just a writing tool for the storyteller, an intermediate that develops the plot forward. And it would be quite and achievement, if the character is integrated fully into the story without the negative effects surrounding it.

Assuming “guetto” is a typo for what I think it is, kindly fuck off from this site. We don’t need your kind here.

What do you mean? Your clearly mad at something which I obviously care little for, and seem to lack a certain amount of cognitive ability.

A lot of the compositing looks better than the compositing in the original movie. Very well done!

Thank you! Im really hoping i can isolate the cgi characters and stuff to improve their compositing into the scenes along with any new elements im including. Some of this like the optical flares is stuff i always planned to get done, but took me a while to get all the new software i wanted. Really want this not to scream fan edit

Which software are you using?

I have created a spreadsheet for those that have offered to assist to create translated captions for my releases. If anyone else would like to assist with any of the languages that I list in the spreadsheet, please let me know and I will add you to the list. As captions are completed, I will put marks in the columns in the sheet indicating they are finished. If there is a language you would like to translate the captions into and it isn’t listed in the sheet, let me know and I will add your name and that language.

If you volunteer, please know that I appreciate your efforts. I hope you will commit the time to complete them. They will be a very nice addition to the releases.
