I’ve often wondered too if what happened to her on Mortis could have imparted longevity or some other special qualities.
Thought I would make a list of a few important dates before Season 2 of The Mandalorian begins.
Since we see a super battle droid when Din Djarin is rescued as a child, I think this time period is during the Clone Wars, sometime after the end of Attack of the Clones when we first see them and the end of Revenge of the Sith when the war ends and they are shut down. (22BBY - 19 BBY)
The Clone Wars
21 BBY - Darth Maul kills Pre Vizla on Mandalore and takes the Darksaber
2 BBY - Sabine (with Kanan and Ezra) obtains the Darksaber from Maul on Dathomir
2 BBY - Sabine gives Bo-Katan the Darksaber to reunite the clans
THE GREAT PURGE - Mandalore resists Imperial control
9 ABY - Moff Gideon uses the Darksaber on Nevarro
*Ahsoka was born 36 BBY, so she would be 45 years old during The Mandalorian. (9 ABY)
*I know Maul loses and obtains the Darksaber again, and that is covered in the comics, but I just listed the most important dates (in my opinion).
So many characters in Star Wars have helmets or masks. I always thought of it as not very practical and just part of the Star Wars aesthetic to look cool. Well with all that’s going on now, I completely understand wanting to wear a helmet or mask when going somewhere, especially an unfamiliar world. This is the way.
New trailer coming this Monday
I wonder how many people refuse to spend money on a streaming service because they believe they’re supporting physical media, but are spending $70/month on a cable bill.
I’d love to see a lightsaber hilt similar to this.
The Legacy sabers from Galaxy’s Egde are a nice option in my opinion. If you can’t make it to the park, you can find some of them for sale on the Disney website. They’re adding Dooku’s saber soon.
I feel like there’s a baby Yoda and Kermit meme to be made out of it all. lol
screams in the void said:
^ Rootleaf , I cook , good food , yes …https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Rootleaf_stew
Well, it says “So You Want to Be a Jedi?” is canon, and there’s a recipe for it in the Galaxy’s Edge Cookbook, so that must be it. Dagobha sure looks like it has a lot of frogs though. Luke train there for a while. I’m betting Yoda slipped one in at some point.
In The Empire Strikes Back we hear Yoda ask Luke, “How you get so big eating food of this kind?” Then in The Mandalorian, we see a child of the same species as Yoda eat a life frog. So when they go back to Yoda’s place, what exactly is he trying to feed Luke? “Eat! Good food! Mmm, good, hmm?”
“If you’re going through hell, keep going.”
Really interested in what this graffitied, urban setting from the trailer is like. I’ve seen some people complain that because of the streetlights, it looks too much like an actual modern city on earth, so I’m looking forward to seeing it in the show so I can figure out what I think of it.
It reminds me of Lothal.
I wonder what the Star Wars franchise would have became if the idea of Vader being Luke’s father never happened.
I went to the theater for the marathon of all 7 main saga movies when The Force Awakens was released, and again for all 9 with The Rise of Skywalker. It was an absolute blast!
The biggest thing you get from watching them with a crowd is the audience reaction. You forget how funny some of the moments are. I just can’t help but enjoy them more in that atmosphere.
I very much enjoy escaping into Star Wars alone at home at times, but if theaters don’t make it through this current pandemic, the loss would be immeasurable in my opinion.
It could go either way, Rogue One turned out great in my opinion
Rouge One told a story I was interested in hearing (more interested in telling, actually).
The mystery wasn’t what was intriguing there. With Vader, the mystery is everything.
I agree. I would rather have not known anything about the Kessel Run. They could have done a movie about Solo and left that part unseen. The same with Vader. Just because they make a movie and Vader is the main villain, doesn’t mean any mystery has to be spoiled. I’d say his appearance in Rogue One added greatly to his menacing quality. I’ll take more of that. As for a story worth telling, that time period is ripe for developing characters and stories.
Christopher Nolan though? Not sure. I love Interstellar and Inception, but I can’t imagine what a Nolan Star Wars movie would be like.

It could go either way, Rogue One turned out great in my opinion, but even though I enjoyed Solo, it missed on a few things in my opinion.
^ Very cool. I hadn’t realised it was a pumpkin until you posted the larger image, I though it was the sun reflecting in the visor! Did you make it yourself?
I think oojason said the past that if you leave the site, then hit refresh the cache (CTRL & F5 on most web browsers?), come back to the site, and any newly changed avatar should then appear. Otherwise it takes a few days for avatar changes to appear.
Yes, I made it. I’ve been doing it every October for the last few years. It’s actually not that hard and a lot of fun. I’ve tried to make a Death Star several times, but I just can’t get that one right.
I expect the conversations between the story group and writers are very similar to a forum thread, lot’s of debate. I don’t think the story group can show up like the Department of Temporal Investigations (Star Trek) to enforce the canon.
I’d have zero interest in a Darth Vader movie no matter who was involved.
You just never know. When they first announced The Mandalorian, my interest was low. I thought it would be something I watched while waiting for the next movie or a series I was more interested in. Now it’s become one of my favorite Star Wars things ever.
If someone writes a compelling story with interesting characters, people will enjoy it. If it relies on just the presence of Darth Vader, then probably not so much.
Vader is synonymous with all things Star Wars, but other than a few brief cameos, we’ve only really seen Vader in the Original Trilogy. I’d like to see a little more Vader with modern film making.
I’d be interested in the time directly after RotS, way before Rebels and even before Fallen Order. There’s so much discovery going on during this time. People would be just beginning to see exactly what life under Palpatine’s new Empire is like. Any surviving Jedi or Padawans would just be figuring out the breadth of Order 66 and what they should do next. Vader of course is just embracing all he has done and what his new role is.
The Separatists have been wiped out, and the Rebellion isn’t even close to forming. The Inquisitors wouldn’t be a thing yet either, so Vader would be the main villain, not the cameo role he’s been in since the OT.
I think it could work, either a movie or a short 4 or 6 episode mini-series. Again, like anything else it would depend upon the writing and not relying on just the appearance of Vader as the appeal.
I thought Les Grossman was in here for a minute.
October’s here. Time’s come for a Halloween avatar. And what could be more appropriately horrific than a vampire/ghoul hybrid?
The Mandalorian season 2, October 30.
This is the way.
Well, I updated my avatar, but I don’t see it yet, but it will be the way, lol.
