this guy mentions the forums here …is he a member here ?..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yg6wNw_uRu4
in the first episode , he is said to be a “foundling” , so I am guessing he was adopted into the Mandalorian culture around the time of the Clone Wars . The Clone Wars animated series by Filoni as well as Rebels , also dive deep into Mandalorian history and lore .
^ I laughed so hard I cried !
nah, for me it is just an alternative and fun way to watch . As you say , some of us have seen the films countless times . Why not mix it up a little ? And when I do a marathon , I do just that . Next time around , I might throw in the Tatakovsky Clone Wars cartoons as a flashback . One thing I did find years ago , was that by reading all of the original Marvel Star Wars comics that took place before Empire , when I watched Empire , the scene with Han saying goodbye to Luke just before the battle of Hoth had a lot more meaning for me as I spent more time getting to know the characters and the emotional beat of that scene resonated stronger with me than it ever had before.
I just watch this as my flashback after watching TESB …Vader’s Memories , a fanedit by Baker Man …This is a black and white, silent reedit of all three Star Wars prequels, with an electronic soundtrack and an extremely pared down story , the black and white gives it a real feeling of being a flashback and tells the essential parts of the story in a more dark and serious tone .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1AcBBpjkDg plus, it is only about an hour long and tells all you need to know so you don’t have to spend so much time getting to the resolution in ROTJ
as soon as they killed off John Connor in the first five minutes of Dark Fate , I was done. I am all for female representation , but this was blatant pandering .This is the movie people should be bitching about, not the new Star Wars films. We already had a strong female character in Sarah Connor …all they did was kill John Connor and replace him with a female and tell the same story . Legion is just Skynet by another name . Speaking for myself , and I am guessing for many fans of the original 2 movies as well , I STILL want to see a movie about the future war as depicted in those 2 films . Why the hell have they not done this yet ? And no , Salvation does not count …that was just another Transformers movie in terminator skin . They could do a fantastic movie by making a prequel about the future war and would not even need the original cast to do it .A missed opportunity IMHO .
I love this show ! I had an ear to ear grin watching the first 2 episodes . Just finished episode 2 and the first thing that came to mind was the old Marvel Star Wars comic…issue 32 had an adventure with Jawas very similar to this and some of the hatches on the sandcrawler and the tactics used by the Jawas to repel boarders were very similar as well . I am thinking Filoni and Favreau must have read these issues. Issue 81 of the series also had a sandcrawler chase and featured Boba Fett being found by the Jawas after being regurgitated by the Sarlacc , only to be put back in by issues end .This series feels to me like those classic comics come to life , as did many episodes of the clone wars . I remember an interview series with Filoni from a while back where they had all of the classic marvel star wars comics on a display behind him , so I am thinking he is a fan of them . Also , I did not think that I would like the Yadpole at first , but man , I love the little guy ! This show is badass ! I have spoken .
great stuff here ! found this a while back …the making of ROTJ , I could be mistaken , but I believe this is from the supplementary material packaged with Rinzler’s making of book …https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T80urCQBxlU&list=PLZ4POPAfakSFaYHl4noUQI4f5ZLtIdZvi&index=1
maclunkey is my new safe word . 😃
^ wow ! sure sounds like it to me ! …https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAnkFVaKnec
this is a thread for all things maclunkey…thoughts,opinions, memes …what have you …have fun with it !
Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford on Brian Linehan’s City Lights promoting TESB in 1980 ! This one also has Mark talking about how his injuries were greatly exaggerated …https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kr7TbrPqYec
I can’t wait until he gets to the episode of Dark Empire where Luke force projects himself across the galaxy…wait…What? …
^ yeah, bringing the Emperor back once was ok , but got really hokey after that and he became a "cartoon " villain in DE2 and especially Empire’s End .
^ I agree it should have been a movie set in the future war …this is the movie I have always wanted to see ever since it was hinted at in the original and the start of T2 . I am willing to bet a lot of fans of the original 2 movies wanted the same . A wasted opportunity IMHO .
^ yes , that is the Death Star concept sketch I was referring to , and the snowtrooper sketch is the one I meant as well . As for Lando , I remember seeing that design in an art of book or a magazine article, I will have to try and hunt down the source .
^ nice finds man ! always love seeing Simonson’s pure art . There was also a Joe Johnston concept of those troopers leaning against the legs of a walker and one was even enjoying a smoke !
they also used concept art in several other issues of the series , off the top of my head , I remember in issue 25 they used some of Johnston’s Death Star trench sketches for the background of Jorman Thoad’s used Starship lot , in issue 61 , the rebel tech who explains the T.I.E. fighter modifications to Luke and Shira is based off of Ralph Mcquarrie sketches in the art of Star Wars books , and in issue 59 , Lando’s outfit is based off of ROTJ concept sketches . I am sure there are more examples .
Most likely inspired by Joe Johnston concept art …https://www.pinterest.com/pin/430023464400062317/
I really dug this , I noticed the animation style did change closer to the end of the video . In the comments , the creator of this said he improved as he went along so I hope he does the whole 6 issues and goes back and remakes the first half of the first part . I loved Dark Empire when it came out and would have loved it if they had made it into a film at that time when the actors were the right age to play the parts . Dark Empire 2 and Empires End sucked in my opinion though, so just the original Dark Empire for me thank you.

The ‘365 Star Wars’ website has a category dedicated to women in Star Wars:-
^ Not just for the Original Trilogy films - but for all the GFFA movies, tv series, animated series and EU content too.
'365 Star Wars started out at the beginning of 2018 as 365 Star Wars Women. In this project I highlighted a new female character, actress, writer, producer, or artist from Star Wars films, TV shows, books, comics, and more every day.
At the end of the year I had (as promised) 365 posts including 42 new interviews. You can click here to see highlights of all 365 posts. I also wrote about what I learned while doing the 365 Project on Medium – you can read that here.
For 2019 I wanted to both continue to update the 365 Star Wars Women project as well as write about all aspects of the Star Wars Universe. This new site – 365 Star Wars – will include articles about 365 Star Wars Women, analysis articles, reference posts about Star Wars characters, droids, planets, and creatures, and issues of the Dantooine Digest.
The Dantooine Digest will highlight a variety of Star Wars content that caught my eye in the last week or month as well as some fun odds and ends. Think of it as more of a “What I saw and loved this week” than a collection of Star Wars news articles. Other sites cover news so well already.
If you’re looking to for a monthly overview of my writing on this site as well as the official Star Wars site (plus other projects) please subscribe to the 365 monthly newsletter.
You can also follow 365 Star Wars on Twitter (@365_StarWars), or on Instagram (@365StarWars).’
