>Hey, I want to watch this show, but I haven't seen "The Clone Wars"
That's ok. "The Clone Wars" isn't entirely important, but there are multiple characters, and other things from the show that are being carried over to this one, so it is worth your time watching.
>Is "The Clone Wars" any good?
For the most part, yes. There's a few lame episodes, but it's generally fantastic. You see Anakin as a war hero, the Clones get some much needed personality updates, the rise of Boba Fett, the return of Darth Maul, and a lot more. Attatched is a guide that showcases the highlights of the series.
>So should I follow the guide, and skip the other episodes?
Completely up to you, but I would personally recommend you don't skip any episodes, not even the Jar Jar ones. You'd be missing a lot of much needed character development, and the occasional fanservice ala' Filoni.
>I heard about the episodes being out of chronological order?
It's not necessary to do this, but you can follow this guide instead of watching it in release order: http://www.starwars.com/news/star-wars-the-clone-wars-chronological-episodeorder
>Wait, what about Season 6?
Season 6, also referred to as "The Lost Missions", is an extra 12 episodes. Just watch them all.
There's an extra 4 episodes in the form of Story Reels here, set on Utapau, and oddly ties very closely into a "Rebels" subplot: http://www.starwars.com/tv-shows/the-clone-wars-legacy
There's also a comic following Darth Maul set after the episode "The Lawless", titled "Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir" that you will wanna' check out, and a currently unreleased Novel about Ventress called "Dark Disciple".
Lastly, we've been told we're getting some "Bad Batch" news soon, meaning something to do with Captain Rex and ARC-Trooper Fives, so keep a look out for that.
Only the bestest soldiers EVAR!!!
Everyone wants to be a mandalorian, even those who know their history is a clusterfuck of pointless violence and defeat, and ESPECIALLY those who are among the best combatants in history, whose philosophy allows them potential titanic mastery of the force.
Something I really liked about his and Kanan's fights was the fact that they showed you they were getting more evenly matched with every fight, and that Inky saying Kanan's been improving isn't just banter.
it wasn't just repeated curbstomps with kanan using the power of friendship in the final fight to utterly reverse it, you could see him adapting with every clash. They even foreshadowed his idea of using the blaster/saber combo
when does the next UK Rebels magazine come out? The Rebels comics in them aren't anything special but i've been trying to collect them when people storytime them anyway for the sake of canon.
also does anyone have blade squadron? ive read Last Call at the Zero Angle and One Thousand Levels Down here before but never saw anyone post that one
From a certain point of view Inky was the Obi-Wan of Rebels.
also can we have a thread less about villain/husbando circlejerking and more about plot analyses, technological explanations, galactic background, heroic escapades and
Is it wrong that I was practically jumping out of my chair when they had Vader come out in the last few seconds. Dude has been my favorite villain of any franchise since I first watched the OT under the age of ten
>less about villain/husbando circlejerking
Where do you think we are?
Seriously though, what else are we going to talk about? Right now there is nothing going on at the moment. We could talk about the Empire did
>that article length
>Stradley had initially planned to use the name as a practical joke on Comic Editor at Lucas Licensing Sue Rostoni, who would often put the word "Master" in front of any Jedi's name. Stradley created Bayts as an unimportant tertiary character simply to play a joke on Rostoni, but the character made it through to publication.
>Perhaps due to the nature of Soon Bayts' name, references to him outside Jedi Council: Acts of War and Star Wars: Obsession have been virtually non-existent
Only wookiepedia would bang on so much about an obvious joke character
Also the Genre of music played by the Cantina band and the Max Rebo Band is known as "jizz"
And they are known as Jizz Wailers.
I bet Master Bayts was a big fan.
>book simply about Vader kicking ass
>all of the PT callbacks
>cute asian Indiana Jones for a sidekick
>has a protocal droid and astromech that are like HK-47
>actually interesting to see how Vader goes from demoted lackey to supreme commander at the beginning of Empire Strikes Back
where were you when the Darth Vader comic lived up to the hype?
Let's get this going. Favorite starship, not limited by size, post 'em.
Mine's the Warhammer-class heavy cruiser
One thing I hated about the EU (which is what Wookiepedia is bloated with) was how they'd go ahead and make intricate backstories to random characters that appear for a few seconds tops.
Like the ugly guy and his buddy who start shit with Luke in the cantina, I'd always assumed they were just your typical drunken self-styled tough guys who just liked to pretend they were master criminals/murderers when they'd probably just earned their scars from other bar fights, but surprise surprise some guy went and made a wanky backstory where one of them is an evil surgeon and they meet Luke again.
You know Quinlan Vos owes his existence to someone seeing this totally random background dude sitting on a chair in Episode I and going "THAT GUY LOOKS COOL, IMA MAKE HIM A JEDI". I think that is one of the more extreme examples of that.
It's a hero/waifu though :^) Also the only circlejerking I did was between me and Togrutafag about whether the Mortis vision or the Rebels version of adult Ahsoka was better, not "man Star Wars would sure have been better if my favorite bad guy won" like the last thread. I don't mind some of that, but it's not cool when that's the whole thread
I like the cut of your jib
I think your non-canon fan model is
not very good, but I respect your opinion.
I think it might also be in the ANH novelization, and I know it's in the Dorling Kindersley Star Wars Visual Dictionary from the early 90s.
just one letter away from blueskinned space sluts; confirmed for star wars???
Bit slow today. Anyway Darth Vader #3 storytime is over here (and has been for hours without being linked)
Handy download links from the Win-o are
Darth Vader 003 (2015) (Digital) (BlackManta-Empire).cbr
Darth Vader 003 (2015) (2 covers) (Minutemen-Midas)
If you use tusfiles be sure to uncheck their downloader and use the big green button.
I think the most extreme one is that guy who got one line of dialogue in ANH, saying that holding Leia is dangerous due to promoting sympathy.
That got mutated into him being Vader's right hand man due to being willing to be a Devil's advocate
It's probably just some R&D facility created at the insistence of Tarkin. They probably refer to all new blacksites as "Tarkin Initiatives," that's what I inferred from it anyway.
To be fair, there was McQuarrie art of the two of them doing this (though I don't know if this was made before or after the movie.)
and to think I went two entire posts without namefagging, how horrid
Kind of a last resort option, but I know that there are Youtube Channels who upload the comics as a slideshow, so if you dont mind a lot of pausing/playing, then go watch them on Youtube.
Just a quick run-through of archive.moe some links may be duds.

Oh yeah, theres a ton of comic stores that ship comics.
Try Forbidden Planet. Just know that, along with the postage/packaging, the price may be steep.
What I actually recommend instead is waiting a few months, and buying the Graphic Novel instead, much better value for money than ordering individual comics online.
It was more humorous given WHAT they created - and which then killed them all and destroyed the base. And apparently they built torture protocol droids, too, ones with a craving for tasty blood. Seems like his major flaw is that he has a habit of going straight to lethal, which is a fairly major flaw in a torturer.
At any rate there is kill and then there is overkill and yet again there is OVERKILL. With a side order of flaming droid crotch sockets. If you wanted an assassin droid you could have an astromech with a needle equipped with neurotoxin (maybe even install a little chemical factory for making it's own tailor toxins), any of the dangerous critters we've seen like the ones sent to murder Padme in AOTCs, or release clouds of micro/nano droid swarms which we know can be weaponized. Hell a mouse droid with the equivalent of a brick of C4, zip up to it's target and then ka-boom.
But noooo, this is a TARKIN Initiative so anything less than enough dakka to take out a moon is just not that interesting.
Holy shit, there is a Nebulon frigate version of those minis!?!?!
I only had a Tie interceptor and x wing, never knew they made more
now i want to collect all the fleets
As for vehicle circlejerking, Imperial fleet is best
Sadly no, it's a custom model. The Micro Machines version is the only Nebulon B that ever had a toy form, except possibly the impossible to find Titanium Collection errata that came about after ROTS.
goddamnit, i want all of those.
Also, Rebel fleet is also cool
I bought multiple complete sets from ebay last august as a birthday present to myself
Armada can't release fast enough
Remember that TIE Fighter anime footage that's been floating around for a while? Well it's finally finished!
We already talked about it last thread.
On a side note, Reddit yet again found an opportunity to hate on the prequels when this was posted on /r/videos yesterday.
>inb4 reddit is shit and I'm shit for going there too
Reddit is shit and you're shit for going there.
How exactly did they manage to do that though? I mean, that video is just 10 minutes of explosions, how could you possibly turn that into an anti-prequel circlejerk without looking like a complete hypocrite?
It's pretty cool, especially for a fan film, but yeah, we talked about it quite a bit last thread so dont expect a lot of replies.
The comments section is rather annoying too. It's full of Weeaboos and EU fags insisting that this should replace Rebels. Like damn, it's a good fan film, but, just, no.
Who /hype/ for this mod here?
>Reddit yet again found an opportunity to hate on the prequels when this was posted on /r/videos yesterday
What does this have to do with the Prequels?
Don't these people have better things to talk about in terms of Star Wars, instead of just talking about something you hate. We do a better job about talking about Star Wars during our hiatuses, with all the husbando/waifu talk and trolling than they do during peak Star Wars activity.
P.s. I love Husbandoing, its why I come here, and for the Star Destroyers.
Oh trust me, though find ways. On /r/StarWars most people like the prequels, but almost anywhere else there's a bunch of haters who find any opportunity to hate on them
Someone explained why a few threads back, but on websites like Youtube, Reddit, ect, everybody is looking for people to echo their opinions, vote them up, ect. The only way to do this is to parrot the same shit over and over and over and over and over again, so even 18 years later, people talking about Star Wars on Reddit will still destroy any hope of an interesting conversation, by bringing up Jar Jar and generic prequel hate, for the sake of seeming like the most intelligent person in the room.
It's why for a lot of us, this thread is generally the best place to talk about Star Wars, because we, you know, ACTUALLY talk about Star Wars. Because we're mostly anonymous and care more about interesting discussions than trying to earn upvotes by criticizing the prequels.
If 4chan wasn't (mostly) anonymous, you would be able to spot the Redditfag a mile a way, because they would come to the thread and the first thing they would do is try to win over some popularity by talking about how great the OT is compared to the Prequels.
You can set up custom filters for words and phrases using the site's built-in settings. You'll never need see another Grievous post again, sexual or otherwise.
Now MISSPELLED sexy Grievous posts, that's another thing.
>Those 7 minutes were better than all 6 hours of the prequels.
How the fuck can people like this exist...
Also can I just say how the fuck can you use that website?
Shit tier community aside, the fucking layout is atrocious, I can barely stomach scrolling through it.
>Those fucking production values! It's a shame animation isn't taken seriously in the US. Cartoon is such an ugly word...
You know, I really fucking hate weeaboos. I mean full on Anakin rage hate them.
The Prequels had some shit moments and yes there were tons of missed opportunities, and certainly they could have been better ... and it was when TCWs came out. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the setting or characters or even the plot elements, the movies just came together as a bit of a mess.
The layout takes a lot of getting used to, especially since different subreddits have different CSS. But, sifting through most of the shit, there are a few good places to go depending on your interests.
It is an echo chamber, that's why I can't stand going to Star Wars forums and haven't been going to them in years, there is too much follow the leader/cult mentality to it and you can't discuss anything with civility unless you talk about what the "Leaders" tell you to. Sheev forbid you actually want to talk about anything that has to do with the Prequels.

Anon, asking which Star Wars song is the best is so hard for me because the entire Saga has some of the best music ever made in my opinion.
Every single movie features some musical masterpieces
The Clone Wars and Rebels has had some great stuff too, despite not being John Williams.
A couple of my favorites:
Ahsoka's Theme (Season 5 Version)
Battle of the Heroes
Ewok Celebration (Canon not-shit version)
Not 100% confirmed, but I mean, a lot of stuff about planets and vehicles and stuff is being re-canonized without any changes, so yeah, they're probably not going to change much about that stuff, as it isn't story-centric.
Only the batshit retarded EU stuff is staying non-canon really.
>too much follow the leader/cult mentality to it and you can't discuss anything with civility unless you talk about what the "Leaders" tell you to
That's one of the reasons I like this website, despite it's own (many and varied) problems. No offense to some of our namefriends but we always did good by having the vast majority of posts anonymous. You focus on the content of the message, not who it comes from - not that it guarantees any civility or thoughtful response. It does seem to help a bit, though.
>Ewok Celebration (Canon not-shit version)
I Shiggy Diggy commander.
Yeah, that is good. Sure, some story EU stuff sucks that its gone but if that means that Yuuzhan vong or whatever their name is and other batshit retarded stuff is also gone - Then nice. I do wonder though if the Vong will ever be introduced in some shape.
No. Several planets are wildly different from their Legends selves
Ryloth isn't tidally locked
Mandalore's entire surface is a white, endless desert.
There is a new reference book coming out in September, dunno what it'll include though.
That's a good one. I think most of my favorite Star Wars music comes from the Prequels, although I'll always love the Emperor's theme and Luke watching the sun's set.
It's safer not to assume anything, sorry to say, but most of the technical stuff so far seems to be what they are recanonizing. Not always, but a lot of the "fluff" details are showing up.
There's a new technical guide coming out later this year. Something like that, anyway. "Everything you need to know about Star Wars" or whatever. Part of their Journey to TFA.
Yub Nub is so underwhelming though. It's fun, I guess, but the first time I finished he saga and the new song played, I found myself overwhelmed with emotion, the way I should be after watching the saga.
Always click update one last time before posting. (Actually fuck that, Waaaayyyyy too much work I don't even do that)
I hope we get the actual full size sentinels instead f the "Slightly fatter Lambda" in Rebels.
It even shows up in the rodian's cyborg holograms!
Likely, yes. It's called Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know
Here's the publisher summary
>Star Wars®: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know explores the world of Star Wars through lively lists, interesting facts, and questions and answers via a highly engaging infographic design. Whether it's a chart of who is the oldest Jedi, a list of all the owners of the Millennium Falcon, or a diagram showing all the Jedi Yoda has trained, this guide will excite readers of all ages and provide facts they never knew about the Star Wars Galaxy.
Found this btw. http://viewcomic.com/star-wars-v3-001-2015/
It only have that first comic though, the rest of them aren't there. Anyone know if there is a place i can read the new comics online in good quality?
I don't get why people worship the 2003 Clone Wars so much, like whenever i see Clone Wars brought up on a bunch of parts of the Net I see people go on about how much better the Genndy Clone Wars was and going on about how "kiddy" the CG Clone Wars is.
How is it better? I rewatched it recently and it was good and entertaining but beyond looking very beautiful and having impressive action pieces there's really not much substance to it. There's almost no plot until the time skip and even then Anakin is really the only character who gets much interesting characterization.
Yes. It's part of the "Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens"
The people who prefer the 2003 one are EU fags dude, that's about the best explanation I got. They don't care about continuity or substance, they just want colorful shit and explosions, and characters to act like gods,
Meh thinking about buying these. If i do, do you guys want me to upload them so you too can read em?
If we're talking about songs, I might as well post some of my favorites
I especially love this one, and any time it's used. Specifically the part that starts at 1:07
Any time this appears as in TESB as well at 1:00

I don't know, the first season of TCW is kinda meh but at least I typically know why the fuck things are happening. The whole first half of the 2003 Clone Wars is basically a string of unrelated action scenes starring a random Jedi each time, with the throughline of Ventress chasing Anakin. The second half actually does have a story to it.
Fan IS short for fanatic.
They really don't compare, in my view, because they weren't meant to be the same thing. The 2003 series were shorts, meant to keep up interest in the time between movies, introduce some concepts, and maybe show off a bit since they weren't ever actually going to show the actual damn war, just the first battle and the last couple of battles. And of course introduce Grievous. It was more of an animated advertisement, but the people working on it tried not to make it cheap, and I mean cheap as in the bullshit that was the Star Wars Holiday Special. It's certainly left a lasting impression for some people.
TCWs, however, was intended and designed to flesh out the war and play a supporting role to the films by firming up and in some places plugging holes in some of it's weaker construction. It gave us some decent performances with decent character development, something the Prequels were sorely lacking for certain characters.
Also, not from the movies, I liked these from the KotOR games
Well, for starters, they didn't exaggerate ever character to extremes. CW 2003 is objectively worse than anything from TCW.
Rebels Recon for Fire Across the Galaxy. The whole playlist is in the OP.
>Rebels Recon episodes
She stole from an Ancient Jedi temple, thus cementing that the new Aesthetic for the Old Republic was that they were all Space Samurai.
The white sabers are considered old and Rare. Ahsoka probably has the only ones left in the Galaxy, and Filoni says she uses them for this reason, as it helps people understand that's she's not an actual Jedi, as she left the order.
>Gr8 b8 m8
I'm not a big fan of the Genndywars. A lot of the supposed awesome art was incredibly stupid, like the launching of hundreds of fighters and LAATs at the same time in the opening videos.
That said, there is also a reason why the viewing guide tells people that the movie is really only important for introducing Ahsoka, which could be iffy too. /co/ took a LOT of work warming up to Ahsoka. It's amazing how well liked the character generally was by the end. I honestly think the "orange buttcheeks" thing helped around here, it's just that kind of website, but really as a character she was a lot better.
I don't know, though. The Genndywars had plenty of stupid stuff. Ghost Hand was boring and frankly felt out of place, Windu's SUPER PUNCHES and taking out an entire army single handedly was too over-the-top. And of course while yes certain people liked it Grievous was WAY too much. I think they toned him down a bit from his first appearance wiping out an entire Jedi team, including several Masters, which was ridiculous given we saw Dooku complaining about his sloppy techniques later on and disarming him. Dooku is no slouch, of course, Grievous versus multiple Masters?
Magnaguards were pretty op, too, but then they tended to be in the games too. They were definitely toned down a bit, on par with their movie version.
My favorite Star Wars songs (one from each movie):
The Phantom Menace - Trade Federation March
Attack of the Clones - Zam the Assassin/Coruscant Chase
Revenge of the Sith - Padme's Funeral
A New Hope - Ben's Death/Tie Fighter Attack (anyone who says this isn't their favorite is lying)
Empire Strikes Back - The Rebel Fleet/End Title
Return of the Jedi - Battle of Endor Part 1
I like how the Leia comic also confirmed that the Yavin Rebels aren't the only Rebels in the galaxy.
Honestly, I'm just loving the direction Star Wars is going now. It feels more like "Star Wars" to me than the EU ever has. I like the whole "Space Samurai Jedi and Sith" idea brought forward by Filoni with Darth Bane and Ahsoka. I like the fact that the Rebel Alliance is a lot larger that what we see in the movies. It's just all so fresh and interesting.
What I really like about the direction things are going with ancient stuff is that it looks a lot less stereotypically boring Japanese but a lot more South and Southeast Asian. Darth Bane's design reeks of Dravidian and Siamese aesthetic in the best possible way
Not just Filoni, Lucas originally came up with the idea of the space samurai. Hell, that was the original idea for the prequels, but I guess he realized that it was too close to the OT to make sense.
And I agree, everything feels so much better, it makes sense, and feels Star Wars.
guys guys come on, dont be silly
We all know which star wars song is GOAT
I know they're focusing on OT and TFA right now, but oh my god I can't wait for the day we get a comic showing Bane/canon Old Republic in its glory.
Hell, we could even see the original Jedi who wore Ahsoka's gear.
I liked it. It was nice seeing snippets of Vader wandering the galaxy murdering various people. Including a Toydarian. A Toydarian who was a connection to a woman who deals in reactivating droids.
Almost certainly not Watto but hell it could be. Watto dealt with droids but let's face it he was ridiculously small time.
Loved the Indiana Jones elements, good to see people still use SBDs, and I actually liked Aphra more than I thought I would. Her excited geeking out over her work was an interesting contrast to her suddenly huddling up at the end, a very "oh shit" posture as she basically runs out of excuses for her brain to avoid focusing on the fact that she's got a notorious Imperial butcher in her ship and is unlikely to survive the encounter once he gets what he wants.
This leads to Vader's seeming out of place activity. Usually he's very take charge, right up to choking Jabba to speed "negotiations" along. Here, though, he puts up with Aphra basically tell him him whatever he's interested in will wait until she's done with her current work. And he LETS her. It does make sense if you assume he's curious about her work and wants to see her in operation before deciding she's the right person for the job, and he certainly profits from acquiring some new murder droids. And they're holdovers from Tarkin's expansive projects, so I'm sure he appreciates that in his own way.
Aphra really does seem like she's doomed, though, given what Vader is doing is so far off the books he'll murder anyone to cover his tracks - and did just that to Tagge's minion. Granted that guy was specifically and openly spying on Vader for the Empire, and plus Vader has already hired Boba Fett and a Wookiee to hunt down Luke. We know Fett at least survives and still works for Vader down the road. Still seems like the more she learns the more likely she is to receive the traditional lightsaber through the back payment for services rendered. Depends on how useful she is, I suppose.
>A New Hope - Ben's Death/Tie Fighter Attack (anyone who says this isn't their favorite is lying)
I could never decide between Luke staring at the twin suns, the ceremony at the end and the jaunty tune when the jawas show up. I completely forgot about the song when Ben dies in the mean time.
I do for sure. Filoni and Lucas were going to have in in TCW, but couldn't work it into the episodes and have it make sense.
But that tells us at the very least, they like Revan, and are willing to do it if it makes sense.
Plus, the character is insanely popular. Even if they didn't like KotOR they'd find a way to reference him, or make him canon (with a different story), just because it will print money.
Revan will return in some shape or form soon.
They've been trying for a while now, it's really only a matter of finding the right way to sneak him in. I suppose the most logical way would be if they explain what Ahsoka found in her exploration of ancient Jedi temples. Not a bad way to sneak in ancient Jedi/Sith, just not sure they'd want to do it.
Hell it all depends on how they use Ahsoka. Is she just using ancient tools that match her old training, or has she sought out some old truths of the Force, something the last Order had forgotten?
If we can get the Bro Adventures of Obi Wan and Anakin in the Outer Rim, I'll be happy.
There'll probably be a name drop, but nothing more substantial.
Though I will be happy if the Story Group retcons TOR and just makes him a legend of the past, like Bane. Maybe they find his ancient Robes, which are pretty much the only unique looking part of KOTOR, aesthetics wise.
Him in his armour adopting the Ochs guard against a group of Jedi is the most memorable part of the game, in my opinion.
He looked like he gave nary a single fuck, and was only interrupted from handing them their asses by Malak.
>Ahsoka has a collection of Holocrons she found
>Occasionally shows them to teach Ezra
>Building up to the finale
>Ahsoka is killed by Vader
>Final scene, Ezra is sad, and is in Ahsoka's cabin
>Finds the last Holocron, the one Ahsoka refused to show him
>He activates it
If there is a battle between Vader and Ahsoka that results in her death, 2 things will happen. I will die from happiness from the perfection of it, and Tumblr SW fans will implode since they praise Ahsoka as a god since she is a female lead
Revan is the classic Old Republic Jedi turned Sith turned Jedi again - probably. Based on what they were going to use him for in Mortis he and Bane would have been manipulating the Son so almost certain Revan couldn't have gone good or at least went bad again?
Anyway given this thematic similarity to Anakin/Vader I can see no reason why they'd withhold it. It would be easier for Ahsoka to draw on Revan as a parallel to how easily or how far Jedi can fall when describing what Vader is (if not who).
>I will die from happiness from the perfection of it, and Tumblr SW fans will implode since they praise Ahsoka as a god since she is a female lead
I'm kinda' hoping that she's going to grow on Vader, almost becoming some kind of Batman & Robin duo, only for it to end with her reminding him too much of Padme, he snaps, murders her, and then we can enjoy Tumblrs butthurt reactions.
I think he means for the former, that it's pretty much the most fitting end to her character, not that he's looking forward to her actual death.
And tumblr shitting the bed is always hilarious. They're like EU fans dialed up to 11 when they throw a fit.
Does anyone know where I can find Star Wars in 100 Scenes online? It's one of the few canon books I don't have but I can't afford to buy it atm and would still like to read it.
If anyone has the Rebels Visual Guide I need it too
why does everybody want every female character in the new canon to die
I'm not entirely opposed to a girl character dying but tons of people in these threads practically fetishize their hopes for Sabine, Hera, Maketh Tua, Ahsoka to get brutally and pointlessly massacred, and now Aphra and Evaan from the comics, and even hopes for
Leia dying in TFA. /tv/ not even onceI'm just sick of hearing people begging for Star Wars to be turned into Snuff Wars
I love Ahsoka, but I don't want her to be some unkillable Mary Sue. She's the ex-apprentice to Darth fucking Vader, there's no way I am going to believe that she is alive during and/or after the OT.
Filoni need's to kill her, and bring me to tears. Not because I want he to die, but because it's the tragic and most fitting end to her story.
Some characters just have to die for their story to be told. Vader is one of them. I believe Ahsoka is another, and it has to happen on Rebels.
Hell, even George said he wanted her to die, before TCW ended.
Out of all of the new female characters, I wants Ahsoka and Aphra to die, because I feel like it would be best for their characters, and for the development of the characters who interact with them.
The others can live though, I don't really care about the genders of characters, just that some have to die.
I'd like to see a reverse Luke situation when she confronts Vader.
At first, he's uncertain (or at least not 100% committed) about severing what he believes to be his last tie with his former life, allowing her to escape the inevitable defeat. When they meet again, he's lost all reservations.
>Filoni need's to kill her, and bring me to tears. Not because I want he to die, but because it's the tragic and most fitting end to her story.
This, I've liked Filoni so far but if he doesn't give Ahsoka a fitting end I think I'll lose all respect for the guy.
>Ahsoka has to die since she isn't in the OT
>there's no way I am going to believe that she is alive during and/or after the OT.
I hear this every single time someone argues for character deaths, and its completely groundless and ridiculous. The same thing about "character development." It's the laziest and most clichéd tactic in modern fiction to kill off a character as a substitute for emotional emphasis than actually taking time to flesh them out. Need I remind the supposed fans of Star Wars, that the only major protagonist "deaths" of the OT were Obi-Wan, Yoda, Anakin, and Han Solo, of which only one was killed, and all of which came back anyway.
I really don't want to argue this for the umpteenth time because I've been trying to refute these exact same arguments for the past twenty or thirty threads since Fire Across the Galaxy. Kill Ahsoka, sure, but make it meaningful, don't ape Obi-Wan's sacrifice and don't make it a guro anime.
Ahsoka has been fleshed out though, arguably more than any character in the entire franchise.
Her story is done.
Jedi Padawan to the chosen one, lost her trust, left the Order, but then helped start the Rebellion that goes on to defeat her ex-master.
That's it. She's learned her lessons, and it looks like she's about to be passing a few of them on. But that's it, there's nothing left for her character. There's no happily ever after for her.
And I dont think any of us are trying to say it should be over the top violent for the sake of it. I want her death to be meaningful, perhaps even pivotal for the success of the Rebellion.
>Not because I want her to die
>I think I'll lose all respect for the guy.
But anon, you DO want her to die, because you cannot fathom that the creators could possibly concoct a well written scenario in which the character survives. To you, any outcome in which Ahsoka lives, is simply not good enough for you.
>There's no happily ever after for her.
The fundamental problem with the EU was thoughts like that.
Where are you getting the idea that Happy endings belong in the Star wars universe? I love ahsoka as a character, but I would sell a bone marrow right now to see her get cut down mercilessly by Vader in front of Ezra, tempting him with rage and the dark side.
I disagree, I dont believe every character should die. But I think that some characters should, for the sake of having a tragic story, and developing the characters involved.
Ahsoka just happens to be one of these characters that I strongly believe should die to be able to tell the best story imaginable.
Besides, the move to keep her alive until Rebels is great, because if you're arguing about keeping her alive for the sake of character development, well there's a 15 year timegap for just that.
I can accept her dying, what makes me mad is the defeatist droning about it being inevitable and unavoidable. That right there is 95% of the reason the EU after ROTJ was garbage. The other 5% being Mofferences and Skippy the Jedi Droid.
It's not inevitable or unavoidable, even Filoni has made that clear with his interpretation about Yoda's "Last of the Jedi" speech. (In fact, Filoni doesn't even consider Ahsoka a Jedi, so...)
What we're saying is that it SHOULD happen. Our opinions of course, but I sand by it.
George thought so too, if that means anything. Some characters die, plain and simple, and I believe that some great character development from Kanan and Ezra, and a great story can be told, from her death. A far more fitting one than if she survives.
>Where are you getting the idea that Happy endings belong in the Star wars universe?
Because I watched the movies instead of reading about Cade Skywalker
>I would sell a bone marrow right now to see her get cut down mercilessly by Vader in front of Ezra, tempting him with rage and the dark side.
I tip my stormtrooper helmet to you, milord Vader
These, at least, are justifiable arguments, that even if I don't fully agree with, can accept.
Happy ending? Sure. But that implies that Ahsoka's death would be the ending. That doesnt make any sense. What does make sense is her death propels the story foward, same as the death of the entire planet of Alderaan. Star wars may have happy endings, but during the adventure, its harrowing to the core.
You're making the classic blunder.
EU writers didn't kill off characters because of inevitability, they killed them off as a cheap way of raising the stakes.
Never once was the main thought "is this a fitting end to their character?" or "how would other characters adapt and evolve from it?"
It was just
>how can I make my guy more speshul, badass and awesum than everyone else's?
I wasn't the one implying it's an ending. I'm responding to the blatant sithposting of
>Where are you getting the idea that Happy endings belong in the Star wars universe?
Besides, a great way to make Ahsoka's death meaningful, important, and resounding, would be
her coming back as a force ghost in a special special edition of ROTJ so her and Anakin can cuckold Padme
That's exactly the point I was trying to make and had made in several threads before.
>her coming back as a force ghost in a special special edition of ROTJ so her and Anakin can cuckold Padme
You could have used a better image
*tips Imperial cap
We're the idea guys.
Sometimes we use MS Paint to create dank memes.
>She plays off Vader's ever-prevalent silence and she seems to be an empathetic character while still being shady.
YES! Not her, but Vader's silences were VERY well used in this issue, saying more, and better, than they could with words anyway. Especially that significant "look" his immobile mask gives when she mentions Geonosis. Often what he doesn't say is more powerful than what he does.
For her, well, she's got to be a woman after his own heart in a weird way given her love of tinkering with droids. Give this and her general adventurous nature, and apparent tendency to play more by her own rules than anyone elses... I think Aphra has the kind of personality Anakin would have loved in his own daughter.
But Vader? Yeah she'll be lucky if she survives.
About him using those codes to unlock the droid. I wonder if that was his knack with droids showing, some deft use of the Force, or if he happens to know a lot about anything that Tarkin was up to, especially the black projects.
I also made a shitty Deux Ex copypasta and shopped images that I seem to have to repost every thread
"Your appointment with Wookieepedia should be finalized within the week. I've already discussed the matter with the editor."
"I take it he was agreeable?"
"He didn't really have a choice."
"Has he been affected?"
"Oh yes. Most certainly. When I mentioned we could put him on the priority list for the Ahsoka figurines, he was so willing it was almost pathetic."
"This new canon... the hype is intensifying to the point where we may not be able to contain it."
"Why contain it? Let it spill over the schools and theaters, let the LEGO sets pile up in the stores. In the end they'll beg us to sell them."
"I've received reports of misinformation campaigns on new media. There's not enough canon to go around, and the younger generations are starting to get desperate."
"Of course they're desperate; they can smell the sequel, and the sound they'll make clapping at the credits will serve as a warning to the rest."
Funny thing about this is its not the first time the big brother thing has been mentioned. Her journal talks about how he is like her big brother a lot.
But theyve barely talked in the show. So am I missing something?
"Mmm. I hope you're not underestimating the problem. Intelligence suggests they're behind the rigging of This Is Madness."
"Bunch of pretentious nostalgiafags playing at running the franchise. But the franchise left them behind long ago. We are the future."
"We have other problems."
"Formed by individual initiative after the cease and desist on the Jedi Archives. I have someone in place though. I'm more concerned about Rhea. He's relocated to youtube comments sections."
"Our Lucasfilm storygroup is far in advance of theirs, as is our video game division, and their 'Mandalorian code' has allowed us to make progress in areas they refuse to consider."
"The television series?"
"Among others. But, I must admit, I've been somewhat disappointed with the performance of the primary season."
"The secondary season should be online soon. It's currently undergoing post-production and should be operational within six months. If necessary, the primary will be released on dvd and bluray."
"We've had to endure much, you and I, but soon there will be continuity again. A new waifu. The prophecy spoke of the chosen one who will bring balance to the Force, soon that canon will be real and we will be crowned its executive producers. Or, better than producers... Jedi!"
I hope one day somebody gives me suggestions on how to improve this dumb text
>why does everybody want every female character in the new canon to die
Who knows. I gave up trying to figure this shit out when people were complaining that only male characters died in season 1 of rebels and we needed gender equality.
I don't care about the gender of characters who die, and can't see why that's anyone's focus. I just want it to make sense storywise. And regrettably, especially since they weren't going to die originally, Aresko and Grint made sense for establishing Tarkin's cred (Tua is a civilian administrator and thus less impact on the rank and file over executing military personnel) and, though I wish it was otherwise, Inky's suicide.
now you mention it, that does seem a bit odd. I suppose their fairly abrasive natures mean that their lack of dialogue is more indicative of them being comfortable around each other, as opposed to having nothing to say.
Most of their dialogue that wasn't in a mission has been with people they've clashed with in some way.
My guess is /pol/. I never saw any complaints about that, only about "muh imperial incompetence, when will we see the good guys get killed," maybe now with rebel mooks they'll shut up about their blast points being too accurate for sand people
We finally stopped feeding the Sarlacc and learned how to deal with shitposters from /pol/ and /tv/, hopefully we will have mastered this very powerful technique when Episode VII is shown. We will need it.
You know an entire culture of warriors makes absolutely no sense. If everyone's an ultimate fighting badass who works on the farm, who tends to the livestock who bakes the bread. Do they invade other planets every time they want a sandwich.
No one knew how to turn on the sprinklers due to the rough Mando ways. That's why their planet looks like this now.
Damn, I feels good to be an Imperial Country.
Yeah, I know what you mean. Might be worth taking a vacation from threads around then.
We could try, but probably wouldn't get away with, having secret threads. A "Star Wars General" for the movie and we create some obscure thing like Star Wars Holiday Special threads and then just carry on as usual while the flood from /tv/ and elsewhere have their own threads to shit post to their hearts content.
If it gets really bad might they ban movie talk from /co/ and restrict us to comics and cartoons only? Has that ever happened?
"Serbia was a mistake"
I welcome and dread the threads that will be happening. On one hand, this place is fun and many of the people here are knowledgeable about the subject. On the other, there will be shitposters a mile deep, doing their best to fuck up everything.
> If it gets really bad might they ban movie talk from /co/ and restrict us to comics and cartoons only?
I have no idea, I just hope they don't ban Star Wars outright due to shitposting.
Actually, I suspect it might be like what happened to Pokemon, which started getting an influx of content, and so much threads and shitposting on /v/ that they got their own board.
The comics and tv series is just the beginning, when the movie drops, there's going to be so much Star Wars, they may actually warrent their own board.
I shudder to think...
They were more along the lines of citizen-soliders.
Farmers and engineers with some side-training in fighting.
Mind you the balance of full warriors to citizen soldiers varied from era to era.
I wonder what they're doing with Leia in Episode VII. I think it would be a shame if she never learned to use the Force, it's her birthright after all, but I can understand when people don't want to see her wearing robes and whipping out a saber.
On the other hand while I'd also love to see her follow her mother's and adoptive father's path, is it too much of a cheat? Imagine Padme or Bail with the ability to wave their hand and say, "You need to go home and rethink this Senate appropriations bill."
>Imagine Padme or Bail with the ability to wave their hand and say, "You need to go home and rethink this Senate appropriations bill."
Congratulations on pointing out a glaring problem with the EU that I never considered, and clearly, nobody else did when they made Leia both a Jedi-in-training and a diplomat in the New Republic.
I like Aphra's circuit pattern tattoo, but it makes me wonder.
Is it just an interesting pattern that fits her theme as a lady who digs up and restores droids? Is it possible it's a cybernetic arm? Or - wilder - what if she's a droid herself? One of those rare humanoid models like Guri. Because we've had two other droids introduced so far whose theme is blending in: a torture/murder protocol droid and astromech War Machine.
We know they can cover cybernetics in realistic and reactive synthetic flesh, so what are the odds one of these Tarkin Initiatives wouldn't create hot asian skinjob cylon infiltrator babes? It's been done before...
I've heard this argument made before and it has some basis on reality.
Cities require importation of food since they do not have sufficient agriculture on their own. This actually is very cost effective for cities. I imagine this is on a larger scale with Star Wars. You could have entire planets devoted to agriculture (lke EU Reytha) and whose to say the food in star wars isnt processed clone food which could be manufactured in factories?
True. Even if she was a human-realistic droid it wouldn't make sense for her to mark herself with oversized circuit pattern on her arm.
It does make a surprisingly interesting looking tat, and I'm not a tattoo person.
Senator Leia extreme aggressive negotiations! Lightsaber flicks on and she's throwing senate chairs around!
"Oh sithspit, looks like she's on the spice again. Wait, do we still say sithspit?"
I think what they're saying is that they don't want her jumping around swinging a laser sword. I can't think of anybody though who doesn't want to see Leia shooting up, beating up, and choking up baddies.
>I've heard this argument made before and it has some basis on reality.
>Cities require importation of food since they do not have sufficient agriculture on their own. This actually is very cost effective for cities. I imagine this is on a larger scale with Star Wars. You could have entire planets devoted to agriculture (lke EU Reytha)
Coruscant in Star Wars is literally and explicitly based on Trantor in the Isaac Asimov Foundation novels. And in those books it's specifically spelled out that it takes about 20 different agricultural worlds constantly shipping massive amounts of food to Trantor to keep most of its massive population from starving.
It's also mentioned in later books that they use yeast-based production on Trantor itself to supplement imported food, but ultimately, cutting off shipping for even a short time would result in billions of deaths.
I'm new here. What were peoples theories about Ahsoka's fate before Fire Across the Galaxy??? Did most people think she was wiped out by order 66? Also I'm watching Revenge of the Sith right now after watching TCW, and it's really sad. I'm seeing so many great Jedi struck down. Systematically, so many greats fall.
Zeb's not that bad. I'm glad they did more to change his model than they did other McQuarrie concept sketches (they also altered Chopper significantly and the AT-DP pilots slightly).
Oh and I'm glad that let him talk. That's a huge plus.
The same guy remained in charge; there were no way for Ahsoka to die before Rebels.
I think most of us agreed she survived because she was too important to have an on screen death.
Dont think any of us predicted she would have anything to do with the Rebellion though, not until Rebels was announced and people figured Filoni would bring her in.
Once "Fulcrum" became apparent, almost everyone figured it was her.
I would rather say Dooku was badly utilized in the movies. For how much they built him up in AOTCs they just tossed him aside in ROTS.
Oh and him falling to Vader has some ironic lulz, I suppose.
The mark on the crate Hera and Sabine picked up and the alterations done to Fulcrum's disguised voice.
Admittedly the marking doesn't exactly match TCWs Ahsoka but it does match her Rebels version.
*Off-screen death, excuse me.
Togrutan symbols on the crates, and people edited the voice and it sounded like Ashley Eckstein.
Funnily enough, Filoni admitted that most of Fulcrums lines weren't even done by Ashley. Just a girl who sounded close enough that people assumed it was her.
And they ended up being right that it was Ahsoka by coincidence.
I think there are very fair odds she does't die in Rebels either. I suspect Filoni will use a similar route of leaving her ultimate fate unknown.
Kanan MIGHT die, Ezra I'm absolutely certain will not.
A few, but mostly the reasoning was that the mystery of Fulcrum likely meant their identity was someone noteworthy and probably meant to be a surprise. That leaves a very small number of candidates.
It could have been anybody really, but a bunch of autismals un-modulated the voice clips until it sounded like Ashley Eckstein, and the retarded French VA tweeted "fulcrum is ahsoka" like 3 weeks before it showed, otherwise there were no real clues, even false evidence to the contrary, that it was Ahsoka, or anybody really. Could have been Bail, Asajj, Mon Mothma, Rex, Gallm bel Trayvblis, Leia et cetera or someone completely new
The D is good to give to waifus, indeed.
>And they ended up being right that it was Ahsoka by coincidence.
I didn't quite get that. It's true that the first voice sounded like it might have been Sabine's VA, however I thought they only used other voices after they realized fans had "decoded" the first.
I could be wrong, and easily, but that's just how I understood the issue.
>I suspect Filoni will use a similar route of leaving her ultimate fate unknown.
Would be kind of fanficky of him to do this twice. But then again, almost everybody assumed Kanan would die, so I expect some more twists.
Like no one dies, at all.
Oh I forgot about the crates, but that's really stretching it. Also I really hope Gall Trayvis has a change of heart and defects to the growing Rebellion, changing his name to Garm bel Iblis. That way he can go from a wimpy mole to the badass we know and love. And also more Brent Spiner. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8ZLwjDQ0Fw
>everybody assumed Kanan would die
I never understood why, he's part of the main cast. Like was that just Inkyfags praying for a miracle. "Here's your mentor Ezr- OOPS HE'S DEAD."
Yeah the crates were pretty sketchy evidence. There were people who swore it matched exactly, which of course it didn't - if you considered TCWs model. Of course Torgrutan markings change with age.
I think it was clear to people, especially with the evidence mounting, but we still talked about other characters it might be or characters we'd prefer instead. I rather liked the "fulcrum is a shared codename rather than a single person" theory. Ah well, it's nice to see Pulp Free Vitamin C back in our lives.
Because character development, recanonization of legends material, and because their names sound similar
The whole Obi-Wan mentor thingy from ANH and the show was aiming for ANH feel. Someone thought he had to die. That was before they announced a comic about him and there were still doubts until after Fire Across the Galaxy.
Regardless we'll never see Kanan and the Inquisitor duel atop TIE fighters in the Lothal Sienar Factory and that makes me sad.
Damn man, why did you have to remind me.

>"We want the ESB audience" - Dave Filoni
>Ahsoka-Kanan-Hera love triangle
>Ashoka will be spending time training Kanan and doing Jedi stuff, something Hera could never do for him
>Ashoka will even start to replace Hera as Ezra's space-mom for the same reason
they're written like an old married couple already, most of the group dynamic stems from Kanan and Hera being the team parents.
They're not going to piss it up a wall for a character who's almost certainly going to be a recurring guest at most
I'm all for this just because it forces more Kanan/Hera moments. Yeah, they're written as a married couple and the group's parents, but its so fucking subtle its annoying. Give me that hardcore confirmation baby.
I just finished Revenge of the Sith, and that one was really good. I used to think that it made no sense that Anakin could ever go to the dark side, but now it makes perfect sense, they did it wonderfully, the execution of order 66 was devestation as well. 8/10.
>I remember when both of-a these guys came into junk shop and CHEATED ME OUT OF MY SLAVE! Then I-a find out she’s a-queen and the other guyisnow-a senator?! I tell ya, life is-a not fair sometimes, eh?Though, he did-a run a good campaign, so I don’t-a blame the voters.
Hm, what is Watto implying about Jar Jar's campaign? Did he get Sheev help with it?
I agree, Revenge of the Sith is a really enjoyable movie. And I know you can be a plinkettfag and say that watching TCW shouldn't count towards Anakins character because it's not the movie, but fuck that. TCW makes Episode 3 really devastating for many reasons.
>We actually know all of the Jedi that get murdered
>We see all the trust issues about the council and Anakin
>We see him lose more and more, including his Padawan
>We see Anakin as the hero he could have been, and his relationship with Obi-Wan
Then Episode 3 happens, and damn.
exactly. I watched TCW first, and it's like oh shit.
I know this dude :>>70627900
is just messing around, but in reality it's true. I saw that woman fight and talk with Ahsoka and help her. I've seen the trust between the Clone troopers and the Jedi.
It wasn't just her face markings that people compared the symbol to - it was her armbands
You wanna know the painful think about Ayy lmao Secura's death?
That Clone that shoots her first is Commander Bly, the one who teams up with Rex to help the Jedi in that episode.
>It's a last-ditch attempt from Lucas to convince people that Jar-Jar is well liked
I'm hardly an expert on these things but they seem to be very hesitant to use Zahn's work, characters or creations. It happens (I think, Kallus was almost a Chiss. But for whatever reason they're ... cautious? I have no idea what their reasoning is.
Season 3, "A Friend in Need". It's a standalone episode where Ashoka is betrayed by her CIS white male love interest, and captured by Mandalorians.
>the only circlejerking I did
Is it circlejerking if I was stating facts?
better yet, Ahsoka could find herself the victim of sexual
Yet Ashoka has had far more experience fighting dark siders than Kanan has, and ones far more powerful than the Inquisitor at that
She's held her own against:
>Barriss, who gave even Anakin a good fight
Can anyone screencap this Tie pilot in this Gif? I wish to have it as a wallpaper. Thank you.
Yes, I've been thinking this for a while. Jedi post-Order 66 have to have a journey of self discovery to become a Jedi. They no longer have to seek and earn the approval of a council, but rather discover and build on the Jedi within' themselves.
Luke has that moment in Episode 6 where he refuses to murder his father, he turns to Sheev and say "I am a Jedi, like my father before me."
It was a pivotal moment, because this was Luke officially becoming a Jedi. No knighting from a council, but we accept it because he has.
Kanan letting go of Ezra after believing he was dead, and defeating the Inquisitor, that was Kanan finishing his trials. That was the moment Kanan truly became a Jedi Knight.
Every else is referred to as Senator, Jar Jar is referred to as "Representative Binks". I assume that's because rather than serving as Naboo's Senator, which is Padme's job, he just represents the Gungans? Or do they allow multiple Senators (like the US model) and Jar Jar is just referred to differently?
And Ashoka was even more gifted and further along in her training than Kanan was, assuming she still fought and trained after leaving the order (which is likely since she has fancy ancient sabers) she is likely more powerful than Kanan
Besides, becoming a Knight doesn't mean you now know everything there is to learn about being a jedi
>Ahsoka lost to every darksider she fought.
I've seen this before and frankly it's an idiotic counter (no offense) to bring up between her and Kanan, as they both are now. For instance how many Dark Siders did Caleb Dume face before Order 66? Why is anyone surprised she never defeated Ventress when Anakin (the Chosen One) and Obi-Wan (a Jedi Master) couldn't at the same time?
We have absolutely zero indication of what Ahsoka has been up to for these 15 years beyond acquiring ancient armor and apparently becoming a major figure in the Rebellion. For all we know she stabs Inquisitors to death every other week. That's extreme but still telling.
>Ashoka was even more gifted and further along in her training than Kanan was
Do we know this for sure? I mean she got into riskier situations because of who her master was but I don't recall anyone ever saying she was a prodigy or anything.
If you're referring to "Spark of Rebellion" that isn't the first episode, that's the movie pilot. And yes, it does get better. The first episode is "Droids in Distress.
What's for sure is she probably didn't spend many years barhopping like Kanan did, so she could have been training that whole time, instead she helped assemble the rebellion, and you probably can't do that without facing down many enemies
The first episode was wonky, but I suggest you watch it. Season 1 is only 15 episodes long, and with each episode only 20 minutes, you can finish it in an afternoon.
Chances are, you'll have warmed up to it by the Season Finale (which is exceptionally good), and you can join us in hype for season 2.
Arguably they earned it. I can imagine the Supreme Chancellor giving them the position as thanks for their defense of his homeworld and helping Jar Jar's campaign - all so he'd have an absolute buffoon in a position of power, always handy for any politician or Sith Master to have around.
And for his case while Kanan didn't keep up his Jedi skills he certainly kept up his fighting skills. A side effect of always being on the run never knowing when the Empire might catch up with you. When Kanan eventually took up his sword again he arguably did so as a much more competent and experienced fighter than when he was last Caleb.
Are you the anon that just said that? Wait, did you think I was arguing with you? No, I'm not the anon saying Ahsoka never beat a dark sider.
Most we can surmise is that Ahsoka has more Jedi experience from before she left the Order to afterward. No clue if how much she gave up the Jedi ways since we haven't seen anything from her missing TCWs stories beyond her helping Bo Katan, but like A New Dawn said you can't just turn the Force off. People strong in the Force will always have it with them shaping their lives.
Hopefully we'll find out what Kanan and Ahsoka have been up to. It's strongly hinted at in the first episode that at least his crew (beyond Hera obviously) knew he was a Jedi, and we don't know when Ahsoka took up swords again, when she found that ancient temple or when she was even put on that path. Should be fun finding out.
>No clue if how much she gave up the Jedi ways
I don't think she did. I can't imagine why she would go through the trouble of hunting down ancient Jedi sabers and armor if she didn't have a vested interest in using them
So? Does that bar them from training together somehow?
Kanan got jacked just from practicing with Ezra, imagine how much better he could get if he sparred/practiced with someone near him in skill and power

I think a lot of this depends on what the Rebellion was up to. You're correct that they've been playing their cards VERY close to their chest, trying to hide the fact that the cells are organized,
However one thing I'd imagine Bail has been up to is trying to recruit Jedi. It's high profile, hell probably the highest you can do to piss the Emperor off, but he knows the truth and he knows their usefulness. You do that kind of thing and you will run into the Inquisition, which means you'll need someone on the Force who can fight them on (hopefully) even ground. It could be what she's been used for.
Or she's just in a mid-level advisory/organizational role coordinating cells and providing another buffer of protection between the vulnerable Senators and Imperial investigations.
What really did bug me though how casually the main characters were slaughtering the stormtroopers.
I have no problem with violence in my cartoons, but it felt dirty, especially how you never see the stormtroopers actually killing anyone. It didn't feel like they deserved to get blown away.
Like, at one point the hero completely disarms a group of stormtroopers, and then starts shooting them.
Yes, thank God for that. Unlike certain other shows I'm watching...
To be fair, she was never OP in TCW.
And she's gonna' get fucked up by Vader.
The only think "Mary Sue" about her is her Uber rare ancient Jedi gear.
I don't think anything else has changed.
>Wing Commander: The Series
Despite that game being budgeted as hell, I'm surprised they were able to get Mark Hamill onboard. Then again, he's always in anything purely for the fun of it.
But yeah, I'm looking forward to it too. We'll finally get to see one of my favorite aspects of the franchise
The problem with the first season is there are barely any characters for the Stormtroopers to really kill.
But the end of Season 1 starts to introduce the actual Rebellion, so from here on out, Stormtroopers will actually be able to kill Rebels, even if they're just minor ones.
She's kept their training, of course. Hell maybe there's some insight in what Filoni has said in interviews about Luke being the only one on the Jedi path set out by Obi-Wan and Yoda. In other words she's given up on the Jedi Order as it existed, especially after the Council turned on her and, worse, let the Republic fall. She could be on a separate Jedi path, maybe something far older that was forgotten or sealed away by the old Order.
As a theme it might work if some of the rumors for Episode VII that deal with ancient evils, etc. Things awakening that have been dormant for a long time. Who knows, though I kind of like that as a back door to re-exploring the KOTOR era and ignoring TOR if the new movies deal with shit that predates the old Galactic Republic.
Mark Hamill didn't really become a big name actor from Star Wars as you might have expected. He probably didn't cost quite as much as you'd imagine
On the other hand, WC3 had a budget of $4 million and4 had a budget of $14 million
They also had Jon Rhys-Davies and Malcolm McDowell and Tom Wilson

The one with the irish Lemurs who talk about peace. And the older one refuses to fight when the seperatists invade. Anakin gets injured in the crash, so Ahsoka, Aayla, Bly and Rex have to protect him.
God yes, McDowell as a Moff or something would be the tits, or him and Davies as Rebel generals
I mean, I don't have a problem with good old fashioned stormtrooper-killing, but it didn't "feel fair" if you get my meaning.
All you see are the main characters absolutely slaughtering these guys by the bushel-fucking-basket, but they never really present any real threat, and the main characters aren't really even rebels, they're just bandits. After a while it starts to feel like you're watching a snuff film.
It's in season 1, I think. Anakin is wounded badly in an explosion during a battle and evacuated by Ahsoka and Aayla Secura, but their ship's hyper drive is damaged and they nearly jump into a star.
It's the one with the weird chinchilla monkey aliens and Mr. Sulu is a Nemoidian with a defoliator tank.
Does anyone else want to see Kenneth Branagh direct a Star Wars movie? He's clearly in Disney's good graces after directing Thor and Cinderella, plus I think the sense of drama and conflict he'd bring to it would be amazing.
Are you people still bothering to rig that stupid set of polls?
Is all this just to get back at Wookiepedia?
Aren't you worried you're becoming everything you hate?
After 6000 years of searching, i currently have all current canon Marvel comics downloaded. Should i upload this "collection" for you guys?
Anyone could of made that movie better than George did. The novelization guy did it, the TCW crew could themselves if they were asked to. It's an awful movie otherwise.
any nice drawfriend could draw haro + bb-8 the new ball droid from the force awakens?
Reading the comments at Madness, someone decided to make this longass blog post about how the EU should still be continued... and it's fairly reasonable and not full of the usual bitter whining, but just calmly presenting a case for Legends to be continued as its own thing.
And he's a truck driver. The first person I've ever seen make a reasonable plea for the EU to continue that isn't GGRGRAGGH FUCK DISNEY MANDO'A STARKILLER FALSE UNIVERSE is a truck driver.
Not them, but you know what, you're right
But you know what else
I'm glad we got it regardless. I've never really felt shame, regret, hatred or disappointment from those films and I'm certainly not about to start now because others say to. They may have performed below expectations but that's nothing we could have helped then nor now. The fact that you people are still so bitterly stuck in the past is amazing. Not the future looks much better (implying it can get any worse than your version of things), but you should at least have that to be mindful of as the present remains as rewarding as it has been
