Disney to buy 20th (21st) Century Fox? (Disney has now bought them - 14 Dec '17)
Time

Is it just me or did a lot of fans turn against the unaltered versions once the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney was announced? Before the sale to Disney, I always heard that Lucas was evil incarnate and that the Special Editions are unwatchable, but the day that the sale to Disney was announced, I started hearing “releasing the unaltered versions would result in the discontinuation of the Special Editions” or “releasing the unaltered versions would go against the canon”.

Reconstructing the prequels from what was implied in the original trilogy
Time

Yoda warns Obi-Wan and Anakin to stay out of the Clone Wars because war leads to the dark side. However, Obi-Wan and Anakin are determined to save the galaxy, so they join the Clone Wars anyway. As the Clone Wars go on, Anakin becomes convinced that only a totalitarian regime with a strong military can “save” the galaxy and he comes to feel that giving into his hatred helps him defeat what he sees as threats to the peace and security of the galaxy.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic General Discussion thread (KotOR, KotOR II)
Time

I also think that the Star Forge should have been an invention of the Sith species or of the TOTJ Sith Empire instead of introducing the Rakata. Korriban was never stated to be the homeworld of the Sith species before KOTOR, so if they used the Sith species in place of the Rakata, they could have said that Korriban was just the only colony of the Sith species that the Jedi Exiles knew about and made the tropical planet at the end a colony that was founded before the Korriban colony and where the Sith species still thrives. If they made the Star Forge an invention of the TOTJ Sith Empire, they could have had the “True Sith” mentioned in KOTOR II turn out to be ruled by the Dark Lord who tattood Exar Kun and Ulic Qel-Droma.

  • They should have made KOTOR the beginning of the “New Sith Wars”, with Revan being the “founder of the Sith” talked about in the TPM novelization. This way, the difference in aesthetics, technology, and institutions between TOTJ and KOTOR would make more sense (because KOTOR would take place 2000 years after TOTJ). I feel that it would make sense for the “founding of the Sith” referenced in the TPM novelization to also be the beginning of the “Darth” title and red lightsabers.

  • KOTOR II should have taken place many generations after KOTOR I and well into the New Sith Wars. Kreia talks about Revan as if he’s a historical figure rather than a contemporary and Kreia’s cynicism and the decimated Jedi would fit the endless Jedi-Sith conflict of the New Sith Wars.

  • Maybe canon could combine Ulic Qel-Droma and Revan into a single character. Ulic could start calling himself “Revan” in reference to his revanchism. This character could even be the founder of the Sith in canon.

Thrawn Trilogy rewriten

  • Instead of Jorus getting cloned as Joruus, Jorus survives, falls to the dark side, and does the things that Joruus does.

  • Jorus is the Guardian of Kamino instead of “Wayland”. Jorus’s job is to make sure the Kaminoans don’t try to rebel.

  • Mara Jade is the daughter of Palpatine and Talzin.

  • Mara Jade is the only Emperor’s Hand.

  • No Mara Jade in Jabba’s Palace. Sidious and Vader were trying to turn Luke, not kill him.

  • No command in Mara Jade’s mind.

  • No Luuke.

Most Baffling Complaint of a Star Wars Movie
Time
  • The claim that Obi-Wan saying he didn’t own R2 in ANH contradicts the prequels. Obi-Wan never owned R2.

  • The claim that the Sith using lightsabers contradicts The Emperor calling Luke’s lightsaber “the weapon of a Jedi” and “his Jedi weapon”. The Emperor’s point was to mock Luke’s claim to being a Jedi Knight, and just because lightsabers are Jedi weapons doesn’t mean they can’t also be Sith weapons.

What do you HATE about the EU?
Time
  • That the Mandalorians started out as a species. Unlike the Sith (where “Lords of” was interpreted as “rulers of a species”), there was nothing suggesting that the Mandalorians were ever a species.

  • The inconsistencies surrounding how long lightsabers have been around and what they were like in different eras. I prefer the idea that lightsabers haven’t changed since the Jedi began “over a thousand generations” ago.

  • Darths pre-Bane and post-ROTJ.

  • If they didn’t want KOTOR to resemble TOTJ, why did they have it take place so close to TOTJ? Wouldn’t it have made more sense to set it during the New Sith Wars?

  • Why did KOTOR create a generic precursor race when the Sith species already existed?

Separate KOTOR from Tales of the Jedi

Thank you.

Korriban was never stated to be the homeworld of the Sith species before KOTOR, so if they used the Sith species in place of the Rakata, they could have said that Korriban was just the only colony of the Sith species that the Jedi Exiles knew about and made the tropical planet at the end a colony that was founded before the Korriban colony and where the Sith species still thrives.

The idea here is to have KOTOR take place longer after TOTJ. More specifically, make KOTOR the beginning of the “New Sith Wars”, with Revan being the “founder of the Sith” talked about in the TPM novelization. This way, the difference in aesthetic and technology between TOTJ and KOTOR would make more sense. I feel that it would make sense for the “founding of the Sith” referenced in the TPM novelization to also be the beginning of the “Darth” title and red lightsabers.
