Constructing a timeline of the ancient history of the galaxy from the movies and statements from Lucas
Time
  1. “Over a thousand generations” before the movies: The Jedi were founded on Ach-to.

  2. “Thousands of years” before the movies: The Sith were founded, quickly killed each other off, and then started following the Rule of Two and using puppet entities to take over the galaxy.

  3. 1000 years before the movies: The Sith ruled the galaxy through a puppet entity, but then the Jedi seemingly wiped them out and overthrew the puppet entity. The Republic was then formed.

General Star Wars <strong>Random Thoughts</strong> Thread

Hey, you know that one scene in Return of the Jedi Where Darth brings Luke to The Emperor and he says “Ah, yes. A Jedi’s weapon, much like your father’s” Would that mean only the Jedi (Pre Prequels/EU) used them officially labeled as their own weapon?

Meaning that Vader would be the only Sith in out of all to use one as his own.

Note: The term Sith was used in one of the original scripts for SW77

JEDIT:

That makes me theorize that the previous Sith before Vader only used their force abilities/powers and other.

I think The Emperor was just mocking Luke’s progress as a Jedi. I also think that at the time, the intention was that “the Sith” were Jedi who had pledged themselves to The Emperor when the Jedi Purge began. Vader was low-ranked amongst them, hence his “I was but the learner” line in ANH.

Should Lucas have created a “Star Wars cinematic universe” in between the release of ROTS and the sale to Disney?
Time

(Such a universe would include TCW and any other tv shows Lucas or Filoni felt like making)

I think he should have for the following reasons:

  1. So he could show what his ideas are for elements of the Star Wars universe hinted at but not shown in the movies (such as the history of the Jedi and Sith).

  2. To save the Expanded Universe by establishing a separate “cinematic universe” for Disney to continue at the same as the EU and show Disney that they can have two universes going at once just like Marvel. This would also prevent the issues with the EU that occured when TCW episodes first aired.

  3. To show Disney that a Sequel Trilogy isn’t neccessary for Star Wars to be financially successful, preventing the story from continuing beyond ROTJ unless that’s what Lucas wanted.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Oh, and who or what were the Whills?
Time

C-3PO and R2-D2 are telling the story that we see in the movies to the Whills. The opening crawls are parts of the contents of the Journal of the Whills. We also know that the Whills taught Qui-Gon Jinn how to become a Force Ghost.

Early on in the development of Star Wars, the Whills were to be the only ones who could use The Force and they would give advice to the characters.

What's your take on Emperor Palpatine being brought back for The Rise of Skywalker?
Time

I guess they felt that you after defeating Hitler, David Duke is an anti-climactic big bad.

Anyway, I find it interesting that while Dark Empire says that Sidious learned how to Essence Transfer from the Tedryn Holocron sometime after ROTS and the Plagueis novel says the Banites lost the knowledge of Essence Transfer as a result of Darth Gravid and that Plagueis wasn’t interested in Essence Transfer, the Rise of Skywalker novelization makes it sound like Plagueis taught Essence Transfer to Sidious.

Who the heck ARE the Sith in RoS?
Time

My thinking is that in ancient times, the Sith openly ruled the galaxy and used non-Force-sensitives as slaves, and that the people we see in ROS are descendents of people who bought into the claim that the Sith are the rightful rulers of the galaxy who the Sith hid on Exegol after open Sith rule of the galaxy ended.

I wish they had the stadium audience be all the pre-Sidious Sith.

I hate how Disney has brought back the aversion to showing civilians or talking about their perspectives
Time

Like the original trilogy, the sequel trilogy doesn’t show or talk about how civilians feel about the Republic, the First Order, the Resistance, etc. Rebels shows how people on Lothal feel but not how people anywhere else feel. I would have liked seeing people complaining about the Empire the way we see people complain about the Jedi in TCW.

Was Lucas intially against Star Wars being released on any format besides theatrical?
Time

Did Lucas initially want Star Wars to return to the theaters every seven years and not be viewable any other way? I’ve seen Lucas quoted as saying, “Star Wars will never be on home video.” If this is true, I suspect that as VHS took off, movie studios stopped theatrical re-releases, so Fox said to Lucas, “Either we release Star Wars on VHS or nobody ever sees Star Wars again”, and then Lucas relented.

Pizza The Hutt in Space Balls made Jabba in ROTJ worth it.

What?! What is it about Jabba you don’t like?

The only thing I don’t like is the language he speaks. No way they could make that gaping mouth make those vowel sounds & have it sync together. They should’a made his language more frog-like so his mouth could do what it does & the sounds would look believable.

I’m not saying I don’t like anything about Jabba. I thought people didn’t like that part of the movie.
