The Music Discussion Thread

The more I listen to The Mandalorian score, the more I am amazed by it. There’s just so many layers. Ludwig Göransson is a genius.

As for the movies, I love the Imperial March and the tune from the asteroid field but Leia’s theme is just amazing. Rey’s theme is pretty good too, but that French horn from Leia’s theme gives all the feels.

Apologies if this is in here already and I missed it. A short bit with Gina on how she was approached for the job.

She’s ended up being one of my favorite parts of the show. I love her humility.

She was great in an episode of Almost Human (I really loved that show) and I think Haywire is actually pretty good.

What next for Star Wars - Extended Editions?
Time

I doubt they release the current movies on disc again. They will probably release any new movies on disc, but I doubt there is another edition outside of a repackaging with new box art.

I don’t think Disney’s going to be doing Special or Extended Editioning of Star Wars at all.

They’re more of a “remake it entirely” kind of company.

So keep an eye out for that in about 10-15 years, probably.

I’ve always thought they would recreate all the Star Wars movies in animated form. That could potentially be very cool.

Time

Thought I would make a list of a few important dates before Season 2 of The Mandalorian begins.

The Mandalorian
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

Rebels
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

The Mandalorian
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).

The <strong>Original Trilogy</strong> - a general <strong>Random Thoughts</strong> thread
Time

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.

^ 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?”

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 just attended a screening of The Empire Strikes Back SE at my local theater
Time

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.

Would it not be amazing if we got a Darth Vader movie directed by Christopher Nolan?

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.
