Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Official Gameplay Demo

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order — Official Gameplay Reveal Live Stream

November is gonna be pretty busy with this and The Mandalorian.

It looks a bit clunky but I’ll be playing for sure. I’m STARVED for new Star Wars single player stories.

It’s great that they got Ben Burtt to come in and do the new droid sound effects.

I wonder how long this reservation thing is going to last? With alcohol being served, the whole being escorted out of GE by troopers could get ugly really fast.

They’re currently saying only the first four months but I have a feeling they’ll be extending it.

Hey guys! Are the Disneyland and Disney World parks going to be the same?

Generally but World will also have the new Star Wars Resort connected to it.

The Mandalorian - Star Wars Live action TV series
Time

Highly recommend anyone interested to check out the panel. Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni LOVE Star Wars and have put their hearts and souls into it.

Not only that, one of Favreau’s goals was to try to appeal to every kind of Star Wars fan so he’s put in as much stuff from the last 40 years of Star Wars into it as he could. He specifically called out that he’s recanonized a ton of EU material in the series.

My personal favorite thing that I’ve seen so far from the series are the Blurrgs which originally appeared in the Ewok movie Battle For Endor! But there’s so much more in there.

Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *

Honestly the whole idea is really nagging at me. I have so many thoughts about it going through my head. Like how long have they planned this? You would think they just came up with it now, but it ties in very, very well with a lot of the expanded material stuff in the last few years. It actually sounds to me like something George might’ve come up with in his treatments. But then, if they had it plannned, why are there no hints at it in either TFA or TLJ?

You should know by now they’ve been winging it the whole time. Here’s JJ talking about just that:

But without getting in the weeds on episode eight, that was a story that Rian wrote and was telling based on seven before we met. So he was taking the thing in another direction. So we also had to respond to Episode VIII. So our movie was not just following what we had started, it was following what we had started and then had been advanced by someone else…the lack of a complete structure for this thing, given the way it was being run was an enormous challenge…I feel like we might’ve done it. Like, I actually feel like this crazy challenge that could have been a wildly uncomfortable contortion of ideas, and a kind of shoving-in of answers and Band-Aids and bridges and things that would have felt messy. Strangely, we were sort of relentless and almost unbearably disciplined about the story and forcing ourselves to question and answer some fundamental things that at the beginning, I absolutely had no clue how we would begin to address.

I agree, it might not be Palpatine in physical form… but we haven’t yet seen the Sith equivalent of a Force Ghost have we?

A Sith Wraith perhaps? (SW has never been shy pinching bits and bobs from other mythology and that would be rather Sauron like).

Actually…

I think we can acknowledge that the Ewok movies are no longer canon, and Disney doesn’t consider them canon either.

Actually…

Celebration 2019 - Chicago; 11th to 15th April

My first Celebration was the previous one in Orlando in 2017.

I won’t be able to go this year. I am quite busy at the moment. However, even if I could go this year, I wouldn’t take this opportunity based upon the state of the fanbase. Because of how toxic the fanbase is right now, I’m afraid that there will be bullies there or worse, fights may break out. Now there’s. very good chance that these scenarios don’t happen, and most hateful fans won’t even attend Celebration, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the audience boos some cast and crew members as they walk on stage. I know that during Battlefront II’s canal in Orlando the crowd booed when EA announced that micro-transactions would be present within the game.

None of this will happen. Those kind won’t bother going to Celebration in the first place. There’s a big difference between the anonymity provided by the internet and facing others in real life.

Rogue One * <em>Spoilers</em> * Thread

Shopping Maul said:

Okay, so did the DS reactor in ROTJ have the same implanted flaw? What about the reactor on the Trade Federation ship? The saga clearly shows us that hitting the reactors can blow these things up. All three films demonstrate, as you quoted, that a hit to the reactor should do the trick.

In TPM and ROTJ they were able to get direct shots on the main reactor of those ships. In Star Wars they have to hit a vulernable reactor module that will set off a chain reaction that leads to the destruction of the main reactor.

Or the third choice - it all went down like the original movie said it did and the rebels simply exercised great ingenuity borne of desperation and, thanks to Luke Skywalker, achieved the nigh impossible.

Nothing in Rogue One precludes what you just said.

Yes, not the Tantive itself. The dialogue makes no sense.

Sorry, I’m confused here. So Vader didn’t know the plans were being handed through the door and was only preventing any escapes. So why pursue the Tantive at all? It only makes sense to pursue Leia if he thinks the plans are aboard - and he’s only going to know this by virtue of having seen the plans being handed through the doorway - which means he knows they weren’t transmitted - which means the dialogue in ANH makes no sense…

Why persue the Tantive? Precisely because he suspects the plans are aboard. The plans obviously weren’t found in the main computer of the Profundity so Vader likely suspects they were beamed directly to the Tantive. Even failing that, the Tantive was birthed inside the Profundity at the time the plans were transmitted. Making the Tantive tantamount to an extension of Profundity itself. Either way, the Tantive is directly tied to receiving the plans so of course it would be persued.

The whole point in ANH is that Vader’s holding her on suspicion alone - hence “holding her is dangerous, if word gets out etc etc”. Vader says “I have traced the rebel spies to her…”. Why not just say “she was present at the battle of Scariff, resisted arrest, and is now a war criminal”?

As was just covered, Vader does suspect the plans are onboard precisely because the Tantive is tied to these transmissions from Scarif.

And why not just say this to Leia, rather than some song and dance about supposed diplomatic missions to Alderaan?

I already went over why Leia is giving him a song and dance. And if you watch the scene again you’ll see Vader cut straight through her cover story every time she tries to use it: “Don’t act so surprised your highness, you weren’t on any mercy mission this time.” “You are part of the Rebel Alliance and a traitor!”
