The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (Released)

I think Rey can still want revenge against Palpatine without her parents needing to be noble. Firstly, they were still her parents, and despite the level of abuse/neglect implied by literally selling her into slavery, she’d still probably be opposed to them being murdered, especially since she doesn’t remember them well enough to harbour any personal grudge. Secondly, he’s Palpatine: he’s responsible for a huge amount of death, for turning Ben and starting the First Order (and thus getting Han, Luke and Leia killed), and is actively trying to kill the rest of her friends. Difficult guy to not want some kind of revenge on.

Why? The point of TLJ is that she doesn’t care about her parents anymore and now has to stick with the Resistance for validation, because she wasted all those years for nothing caring about awful, drunken parents who neglected her. She’d want them to suffer for neglecting her and believing she was nothing.

Having her go back to caring about them regresses that.

As Hal has requested this topic doesn’t continue in this thread for the time being, any further discussion of Rey Nobody should be done in the Rey Nobody thread.

TestingOutTheTest - I strongly suggest you follow Hal’s request, and CaptainFaraday’s reminder.

And stop continually taking this thread, and also other fan edit threads, off topic.

There won’t be any more requests or warnings.

The Sequel Trilogy: Trilogized (a Work In Progress)

I feel that seeing the Sith fleet rise right after Luke restores the spark of hope in the galaxy would negate his heroics to soon after his sacrifice.

There never should’ve been a continuation of TLJ. Ever. The canon timeline, not just the main saga, should’ve just ended at the boy looking at the stars with hope. Period. End of story. Zilch.

Continuing the story and creating any new threats AFTER TLJ strips away any emotional impact from Luke’s sacrifice and inspiring the galaxy with hope, even if TFA and TLJ, themselves, remain untouched. Because what was the point of Luke’s sacrifice if TROS or DOTF or whatever continuation even exists? It was all for nothing since Palpatine came back anyways in TROS, or Kylo was gonna search for some planet-destroying Force ability in DOTF or the Resistance struggled against the FO in both Episode IX’s.

Nah, I’m just kidding. Do you not understand that everything is temporary? You really think it only matters if it lasts forever? By your logic, TFA destroys ROTJ’s ending by destroying the Republic and Jedi and resurrecting the Empire. Logan destroys the previous movie’s ending by turning the world into an apocalypse and killing off all the mutants. Civil War destroys The Avengers from 2012 by having them break up. Nothing ever lasts forever. Everything is always temporary.

Besides, TLJ was always gonna have a sequel.

You’ve had numerous requests and warnings to for this type of post to stop in the Edits section. Kindly knock it off - thank you.

<strong>Star Wars: Droids</strong> (animated tv series) - a general discussion thread

SilverWook said:

Boonta Eve originated on Droids?

Yes mate 😃

General Grievous’ ‘wheel bike’ also first appeared on Droids, I think Bogden (the swamp planet) was first mentioned in Droids - and the Baobab family too (also mentioned later in the Prequels?)

‘Kybo Ren’ too.

Quite disturbing the useless information that stays in the mind - yet the more important stuff… no chance!
 

Joel said:

So happy to see this!

Is this the first time that the first story (The White Witch saga) has been commercially available?

Definitely been up and available on youtube 😉 I think it may have been on released on VHS - but not on the DVD releases?

the ugnaught, Video Collector, or pittrek would likely know for sure (they’ve all done preservations for Droids previously).
