I love that it was basically right out of a video game.

Can't say i was expecting such a big reaction. Regardless of what tou can think about the movie, its true that TFA has recover the hope of a lot of fans and in the way making new ones. We are enetering a new Era with and just by seeing how well the movie did and that the franchise is now of Disney. We can expect to have new Star Wars movies forever
Maz Hijinks from the last thread.
>Maz somehow get's that rekted Star Destroyer on Jakku working again.
>She retrofits the entire cruiser into a Bar/ Space Hotel.
>Half the clients come for the "Tentacles"
>Chewie is Maz's assistant, he's still the muscle, but teaches her to make traditional Kashyyk drinks.
>Finn, Poe and Rey always find time to visit as well.
>C-3PO and R2-D2 are the management staff
>BB-8 is popular with the kids.
>Finn sometimes feels uncomfortable while having a drink.
>Little does he know that a certain First Order Trooper is sitting in the back, straining, and trying not to scream.
I want a running gag in the sequels where Finn is constantly harassed by the Trooper coming in out of nowhere at the most random of times.
I also wait for the inevitable Disney cash in by creating an elaborate backstory around TR-8R and how he was actually Finn's Childhood friend.
I think the big reason why this movie succeed was the massive advertising campaign. I've never seen it so large even with Marvel movies. Star Wars is EVERYWHERE.
Go to supermarket its there, Ross its there on the bus, on the tv commercials in fucking Burlington coat factory
>mfw TFA becomes the highest grossing movie of all time.
>mfw Disney will never stop creating Star Wars Movie
>mfw everything from the Old Republic to The New Jedi Order is imminent.
>mfw The EU is retroactively remade as literally dozens of movies in the next few years.
I assume he'll be hanging out with Rey now, since she's the only other person who knows the Falcon well enough.
Though if we're being fair, Chewie should be the new captain of the Falcon and Rey the co-pilot.
Makashi for life
Her High Duchess of Mandalore, Satine Kryze
He seems to prefer leaving the flying up to others, although he has no problems with it. Just grabbing Threepio and off to rescue Luke from a steroid abusing Hutt in the comics...
Though thinking about it, this wouldn't be a too terrible way to get Lando back into the movies.

>Not a refurbished Mon Calamari Star Cruiser
>Half the clients come for the "Tentacles"
Damn, who knew Star Wars was full of tentaclefags, but then again that's probably the most common and vanilla kink in that universe.
>the waiters and waitresses dress in the imperial uniforms left behind to keep the bar in-theme
Uh, TPM had a fuck-huge advertising campaign too.
I even have a Darth Maul towel from when it was coming out. I thought it was the coolest shit when I was 9. (Of course he turned out to be lame so I didn't use it as much)
True. Hell, Star Wars ended up marketing products outside the toy aisles long before TFA was announced. I'm talking about the gulf between the Prequels and the Sequels. TCWs, both movie and TV show no doubt helped, but it was usually classic stuff like Darth Vader and Stormtrooper helmet mugs and blanket sets, stuff like that. It's just really exploded since then but something about Star Wars is that it never quite goes away.
"Darth Sidious was so blind he could use the mystical energies of the Force (No midichlorians, Disney doesn't go there anymore) to create....life"
"What happened to him?"
"Well that's why we called him blind. He got shocked with his own lightning and thrown down a shaft"
These making of videos from the prequels are pretty fascinating to watch. Any drawfriend or someone interested in movies may find them particularly neat.
Art and CGI effects:
Sets and World building:
Risky as shit. Most Force Sensitives have to train to properly use a Light Saber.
Double-Bladed sabers are some truly next-level shit. You need god-tier reflexes and precog to even use one at all, much less efficiently.
Star Wars always prides itself on it's merchandise. Being under Disney's wing means that marketing and merchandising will only intensify.
All I really want is for Disney to be reasonable enough to greenlight better video game projects once EA's license runs out (I don't trust them after Battlefront)
Just see how much money this movie is doing. Disney is a company whith the probabilities of dying in the future almost zero. And with the Star Wars franchise in his power you can bet they will still make Star Wars till the day we all die and beyond. Prequels, Sequels' EU whatever Star Wars is big enough to make 100 movies and more. And it will probably still sell because its fucking Star Wars so we are in for a never ending ride.
I am really on the fence with this Star Wars movie every year thing
If they do something like do their trilogy then take a break and fill the spaces with Anthologies then sure whatever. Of course it will depend on how Rogue One is first
However if they immediately go into the next sequel trilogy after IX, it's going to get retarded
This is actually happening. The strange thing is, I don't want to get off of Disney's wild ride.
The Old Republic was made for cinema though. Seeing Jedi and Sith drop down left and right can tug on your heartstrings if done well enough.
Also, I'd like to see multiple director's interpretations on the Franchise. Noir Bounty Hunter films, Saving Private Mando, etc.
Different movies, with different tones and styles of directing. We're living in the platinum age of Star Wars, get ready.
I want Finn to be a Mandalorian because fuck it. Rey's the Jedi, Poe's the pilot, haul Finn's ass to a bunch of hiding Mandos to train his ass, turn him into a goddamn warrior.
Luke's green lightsaber
>Well never get the Live action TV series Starring boba fett George wanted to do
>Adult oriented star wars stories will be rare if we get them at all
Whats the point
Besides, nothing says Mando's can't use Lightsabers. Hell, Boba Fett briefly did in the EU.
Finn himself is probably Force-Sensitive, but nowhere on the level of Rey and Luke. He'd probably use it more in line with the average person: breaking locks, confusing people, lifting shit, etc.
I think Finn as a Mando brings a new element of intrigue and uniqueness to the character. It differentiates him from literally every other main character in the films and makes him into someone capable of giving Rey support on the ground.
When I did martial arts, the Bo-Staff was my favorite weapon. I too can attest to all the bruises gained while learning to use that shit. Where did I put that thing anyway?
It's almost been 20 years, let it go with the Jar Jar hate. Star Wars has bigger concerns than a character that got slowly phased out.
When you say "Old Republic" what do you mean? Do you want an original Old Republic or based on KOTOR?
>you will never get kissed by ventress while she PENETRATES you.
Why even live?
Then i would say grow up, but i think that would be pointless
This, people act like Jar Jar ruined Star Wars even though he was only in one movie
It was JJ and Disney that ruined Star Wars
Their Best of Emperor Palpatine is the fucking best.
>Hold the elevator!
>storm trooper starts frantically hitting button
>I see you that! What's your ID number!
>It's 1143- eatmyass!
>When you say "Old Republic" what do you mean? Do you want an original Old Republic or based on KOTOR?
Either really. Though KotOR doesn't really lend itself to being a movie because of the variable nature of RPGs. The MC's character would have to be streamlined.
I'd prefer a few centuries later around the time of TOR (the MMO) where Jedi and Sith are still thriving, but the story is on a grander scale.
You could make the Playable classes as an enseble of Main Characters. Switching perspectives between the Jedi/Republic Troopers and the Sith/Imperial Troopers with both stories converging at the movie's climax.
Pic related. Tell me this scene wouldn't send chills down your spine in a theatre.
I just really want Darth Nox to be canon again, mainly through a film.
>that clone's facial expressions
this is why we don't waifu crazy
>Tell me this scene wouldn't send chills down your spine in a theatre.
Whoever storyboarded and directed that game trailer needs a shot at doing this as a full on live action movie.
I've never played a SWTOR game or the older RPG in my life and that shit NAILED star wars to me.
>X-Men: Apocalypse is going to destroy Star Wars's records
So let me get this straight, not only did Vader train his Inquisitors to use these weapons, but not once did it cross his mind in the decades they were using it that such a thing could happen, and to add to that that they should train to avoid such a thing instead of acting like showoffs?
Kanan didn't even finish his training, he's essentially a glorified Padawan and he figured this out.
It's so weird.
A decade ago I'd have thought that looked cool and must have cost a fair bit.
Now, I look at it and think "I could probably get everything I need to make that at the local hardware store for £20"
Fuck, man. All the TOR Promotional trailers are theater worthy material.
Actually, just make an entire CGI movie like the trailers. Essentially pic related.
It's easier to show insane force powers if the CGI models are the main aesthetic of the film - it doesn't feel forced.
That and Satele makes my dick diamonds. Best Star Wars Waifu.
>Star Wars is no longer the modern myth but rather another tit for tat shared movie universe only concerned with OT suckling fat geek profits
>Kanan didn't even finish his training, he's essentially a glorified Padawan and he figured this out.
yes he also has 15 years of combat experience, AFTER he fought in a galactic spanning War.
Any way the Inquister was tired and on the ropes, and a against a edge
Inquisitor are only used to hunt wayward Jedi and Padawans that escaped the purge, they aren't trained to learn the intricacies of the Sith and are only their attack dogs. The only thing they are good for is to stand around and look pretty.
"We trained them wrong, as a joke"
>>Well never get the Live action TV series Starring boba fett George wanted to do
They're looking into doing something with those scripts and 1313
That is my favorite thing about the nature of the Inquisitors. Vader and Sheev must get a good chuckle every now and then, and I like to think they sometimes spend some time just to mess with them.
Watching the trailers just makes me wish that SWTOR was a better game
If anything, TFA was Disney's means of appeasing the "Muh OT" crowd. Or at least I hope that it was.
I want the series to branch out. EU or not, there is a shit ton of material that Disney can delve into. All of the movies will carry the Star Wars brand so they're going to break the bank at least.
I think it's a courtesy on their part, But I don't now why.
I'm interested to see where that goes.
>1911 because lightsabers are gay and can't block ballistic rounds
They block them find, they just can't reflect them with sabers. However it is entirely possible they can TK the bullets back in your face.
I wouldn't want the KOTOR/TOR games to be canon. I would like to see the Star Wars galaxy 1,000+ in the past looking almost alien.
I would like to see it near the end of the Sith Empire when they're beginning to fall into infighting and see the Jedi stragglers getting massing a massive counter attack. I understand this has some callbacks to the OT but I wouldn't have the Jedi looking like punks.
But I honestly wanna see massive Sith vs Jedi battles with super weapon powered kyber crystals. Like what
>KotOR I and II remastered.
>Restored Content Mod pre-installed for TSL
>Native mod maker and integrator
>New voiced dialogue
>It's not real
Not him, but someone out there does. Hell, it wouldn't surprise me if there was someone out there that genuinely hopes that Deadpool becomes the movie that tops them all.
On one hand, never underestimate the power of idiots. At the same time, you'll never go broke appealing to the lowest common denominator.
>I would like to see the Star Wars galaxy 1,000+ in the past looking almost alien.
Oh, you want fucking obscure? Do you know what the Je'Daii Order is?
the Predecessors to both the Jedi and Sith, and the group that those two would be formed from after their disbandment.
A movie about them, and their encounter with Force Hounds and the Force Sabers (Predeccessors to Lightsabers) would be great - considering what the Forcesabers did to them.
I loved him.
In the previews and marketing
After the movie I was just feeling disappointed because he was dead and wasn't going to be in the rest of the movies. I remember saying to my dad "But he only had one line!"
>I also wait for the inevitable Disney cash in by creating an elaborate backstory around TR-8R and how he was actually Finn's Childhood friend.
Well, I don't mean totally obscure that the average person wouldn't recognize but something visibly different but obviously star wars.
I feel like TOR and KOTOR got this all fucked up. I've honestly tripped up thinking Republic troopers were Clone Troopers. I want to see ancient Star Wars.
I imagine they'll ride out with a bunch of Anthology/spinoff movies, and bide their time before another trilogy.
They'll probably give it a decade or so between, to build the hype.
Same, I loved all the 7 movies, and I'm not a whiny fuck like >>78652304
The Je'daii are literally as ancient as you can get. They predate all the Jedi and Sith, and by extension, their ancient Lords.
The Je'daii dealt with shit like the Rakata and Force Monsters. Literally before most galactic armies were a thing, all battles were fought with the Force and Forcesabers (again, not lightsabers)
You have no idea. I was eight when TPM came out. I had Darth Maul action figures, a few of those tops trading cards, a bath towel, and even a fucking bottle of Darth Maul bubble bath. I loved the movie like every other dumb little kid, but hot damn did that disappoint me.
Spinning's a good trick, Anon. Maybe Maul should've tried that.
>he was crying and whinning like a bitch. And he was way to expressive for my taste
This is honestly retarded. You barley knew him from the TPM. People keep making these invincible characters with their headcanon. The only thing you knew was he was Sidious apprentice and hated Jedi. Even Vader was begging for his life near the end.
Sith are terrified of death.
To be fair, Rogue One is going to be a war movie set in the Dark Times. That's pretty new for Star Wars movies. TCW had some good arcs with the troopers but I think Disney isn't banking on people being ready to understand the Umbara arc on demand.
Don't we love all of that? We were askong for that since the beggining and besides it can't last forever. We'll eventually get PT or EU movies, Tv series and comics just you wait
KotOR is a self contained story - it doesn't need a movie.
TOR spans centuries worth of conflict - something which is ripe for movies.
Plus, KotOR fanboys will bitch and whine when Revan is inevitably cast, regardless of who he/she looks like.
>I've never seen a truly terrible movie:the post
Look up Salo:90 days of sodomy, then we can talk about quality.
I don't understand the hatred of the Clone Troopers. They're literally the best soldiers in the franchise.
Plus, the first fucking episode of CGI Clone Wars showed that they can be unique characters with their own personalities and quirks - even though their technically the same person.
We need more Clone Trooper shit, fuck the Stormtroopers, and fuck the First Order troopers.
I'm not sure what your talking about I love clone troopers they were the best thing about the Clone wars animated series, it was heart wrenching when your favorite clone died. ECHOOOOO
I'd still prefer the TOR Era.
KotOR era Jedi were more or less complacent. It wasn't until the Mandalorian Wars where Revan turned the Jedi into action heroes.
The KotOR Jedi were complacent and stagnant (much like the Prequel Era Jedi) because they had no true enemy to actively fight against - no glaring reminder of what the Jedi shouldn't succumb to.
The true Sith weren't back yet. Vitiate hadn't given the green light for the True Sith to return and invade the Republic, signaling the TOR Era.
Instead, we got Revan's feint with the Fake Sith Empire to prepare the Galaxy for the threat of war, until Malak's dumb ass fucked everything up, leading to KotOR I.
The closest thing to a profound KotOR movie would be a reimagining of KotOR II, especially seeing how they pull off something like Nihilus.
I think the entire arc of story from all the soldiers of Star Wars is supposed to be an ironic one
The "drone" clones the Republic created were actually vibrant and excellent individuals.
The "real" Troopers the Empire employed were lemmings and hive minded fools
Not you guys, but "casual" shitters like everyone at /tv/. Their hatred for the Prequels is so great that they even deny the redeeming aspects of the Trilogy, like the Fucking Clone Troopers.
Even true casuals get them confused, thinking that they're "Stormtrooper rip-offs" or a lame idea because they're all the same person. It irks me.
you'd be amazed by how many people actively hate them.
.....But, I agree with you. I said I'd prefer TOR OVER KotOR.
Revan is overdone. Not bad, just overrated to an extent.
Plus I ship him with Meetra instead of Bastilla. Bastilla a shit.
My own father was a filthy Casual some days ago but everything changed once he saw TFA. That movie truly does miracles
The Exile's canon name is stupid. Last name whatever but her first one has the same goofy quality when sounded out as Snoke, to me at least.
Handmaiden > Disciple, male Exile should have been canon or just take both on the ship
You're right about Meetra as a name.
The only reason the Exile is canonically female is because Bioware wanted to offset Revan being canonically male. That is literally the only reason.
In fact, with Atris being a jealous lover wanting your dick, Visas Marr, Mira, and the other chicks constantly fighting for your dick, and a bunch of other dialogue clues in mind, it's pretty much heavily implied that the Exile was originally supposed to be a male.
I'm serious about Atris though, that bitch was crazy and wouldn't have turned into an insane megalomaniac if you just gave her the Force D.
>wouldn't have turned into an insane megalomaniac if you just gave her the Force D.
the lack of D is definitely the reason for her insanity, not the fact that she sleeps with sith holocrons in her room
I liked Atris. She was male Anakin, someone who made horrible no good very bad decisions based purely on her love (requited for him, unrequited for her) and never ever chose to acknowledge her mistakes.
Also she had a cool look going on.
Also why was Revan decided as male? The relationship with Malak would remain with a girl and we'd have had an okay strong female character without them trying to be a Strong Female Character.
I want that too man, but Casuals would be confused to hell and back. TOR and KotOR are fine, maybe even ancient Sith Lords.
But the minute you go back to the very fucking beginning, you're opening up a whole new can of worms.
Forcesabers, Je'daii, no Sith, and a lack of contemporary technology would confuse the fuck out of normal people:
>"Is this Star Wars?"
>"Where's Han and Chewie and the Falcon?"
>"I though Darth Vader was the last Sith?"
>"Where's Luke and Leia?"
>"Are those Jedi?"
>"Why are they calling Lightsabers 'ForceSabers'?" (Pic Related)
It goes on and on. I would want to see teh Je'daii more than anything and their eventualy split into the Jedi and Sith Orders, but Disney would go bankrupt before they drop that EU bomb on people.
Hell, Dark Empire and Sheev "Cloned OP as Shit Force Storm Spams Up the Ass" Palpatine will be canon again in a movie long before the Je'Daii Order shows up.
Has anyone seen how JJ made the lightsaber battle?
I have a Darth Maul towel from back then, still in good condition. I never use it because when you step out of the shower the idea of rubbing down your naked body with Maul's face is kind of...well it makes me want to go home and rethink my life, but since it's my shower I'm already home.
My only issue with the Sith Empire is the emperor. The emperor should be a new Sith every other month as Darths and Lords and Apprentices each try their hand at killing the current Big Dick G, succeed, take over, and then get killed after ruling for a while.
The Sith Emperor being some fucking immortal god-being is so fucking stupid it hurts.
Or hell, just make the Sith Emperor an actual fucking character, some Julius Caesar Sith fuck who makes speeches, consults with the Council, actually DOES stuff other than just being... there.
Like, imagine a Sith Shao Kahn, how cool would that be?
"You failed me, Maul. You were supposed to be fucking badass not die like a chump and leave me in darkness."
>Implying Atris doesn't use them as very painful Force Dildos.
The Dark Side makes people do crazy shit pham.
Huh, I never thought of it that way. Revan was a male because the default gender people assign to courageous heroes in a story is still a male. Doesn't make it "right" or "wrong", just a force of habit on BioWare's part.
That and the fact that they wanted a straight relationship between Revan and Bastilla to be canon down the line IIRC. KotOR was made before Bioware was enthralled in lustfull homosex and erotica.
They used glowing props so that it would cast an actual light, the blades themselves were still CGI though.
This actually isn't a new trick, they did this in AOTC for that scene where Anakin and Dooku are fighting in the dark
Shit, I can remember that scene.
When JJ has the droid tangled around his leg and he's thrashing about making the droid fire and hit other droids.
...I've not seen Phantom Menace in about a decade.
I remember always changing her model to human because the modelling for her face was terrible.
Nowadays it'd probably look much better. Wait, are you saying that Juhani was implied to be gay? Because I don't remember her ever coming onto Female Revan.
Revan x Exile/Meetra is still the OTP to end all SW OTPs
Future Mandalorian Super Commando detected.
>Because I don't remember her ever coming onto Female Revan.
Right before you fight Bastila on the "unknown world", she long-windedly says she's in love with you. You can reciprocate or let her down gently, or I think outright deny, as is standard Bioware fare.
>Implying Finn won't become Mandalore of all the clans at the end of Episode IX
>Forcesabers, Je'daii, no Sith, and a lack of contemporary technology would confuse the fuck out of normal people:
I'm pretty sure that's what the opening crawl is for. KotOR managed to do so well enough by beginning its own with "Four thousand years before the rise of the Galactic Empire"
Well Shit. Time to reinstall KotOR again for the umpteenth time.
I still can't believe that Space Lesbians is one of my many fetishes.
Muh Dick says yes.
Not as a rebuttle to your statement, but just because the idea's pretty cool.
Don't be like this guy >>78653761
I still think casuals would be in "WTF?" mode for the movie.
Bro Disney will ignore all of that. They will do something set in the star wars "past" that's all but it will be their own thing.
They'll keep some references in to please fans but Disney does not do convoluted stories. When they decide to tackle ye olde star wars times they will keep simple, "True Sith" and "Fake Sith" Empires will go out the window.
>Darths and Lords and Apprentices each try their hand at killing the current
I think it would be far more interesting to see the Sith without a hint of Rule Of Two. So when you see Palpatine and Vader in comparison you would understand why Bane created it.
Imagine a twisted version of the Jedi council. One Sith emperor and Sith ruling council but they often get into violent confrontations about how they should handle their empire. I don't mean violent like Force choking but plotting and assassinations.
Yeah I bet you do.
I'll bet my life that everyone here would like to see at least 1 movie based on the EU.
Casuals, not so much. They either don't have the time or passion to delve deep into SW Lore like we do, so it makes sense that they'd prefer what they already know.
Granted that if Disney decides to turn this newfound Potential for Star Wars media into a massive continual OT praising marathon, then I will literally burn their offices to the ground.
It works with a male, with a female the vibe I got was she was mad her Jedi sister walked away but she didn't.
The point is, whichever gender you chose as a PC she was super fucking mad at you due to a strong feeling for you. You were something specific and special to her to merit her weird hate and keeping the saber and all.
I'd love a Mandalorian Wars movie. Still remains my favorite period and conflict of Star Wars history, EU or otherwise. Though the reference to the "Great Scourge of Malachor" for Kylo's lightsaber design makes me think they plan on retrofitting or remaking the KotOR games for the aesthetic they have going on now for the Old Republic
Either way, The Sith value direct showings of strength and power over subterfuge and deceit. So I can't see them ordering assassinations left and right.
It wasn't until Tenebrous, Plagueis and lastly - Palpatine, did this tradition break.
The reason why the Modern Sith finally succeeded where the Ancient Sith failed is because they actually took the time to know their enemy - the Jedi instead of just wanting to bash their heads in.
That, and the modern Sith are chill as fuck. Not overly assblasted spergs like Bane
When Disney delves into ye olde star wars I think this what we'll get
>show/comic based around the time of Darth Bane.
>Sith Empire exists but is a mess, get to see Bane reshape it.
>Visually more distinct than previous takes on star wars past and they will go out of their way to make the technology crude compared to "modern" star wars.
>They will completely ignore any KOTOR stuff save a few references and they will simplify the origin story of the Sith.
>The reason why the Modern Sith finally succeeded where the Ancient Sith failed
Considerations Paplatine failed in the end, i really dislike the sweeping generalization hat the rule of 2 is superior to true sith empires.
His "Victory" lasted 20 years, he really didn't do any thing that more grand then Revan, or the Sith Emporer
The Sith Emperor, I'll give you mainly because spooky force rituals that drain life force and sentient will on a planetary scale tends to give one some staying power.
Revan on the other hand was a shitty excuse for a Sith. He barely had an "empire" for 3 years before he was beaten by Bastilla's strike team and Malak's constant need to asesrt the size of his Force Dick.
The latter is justified because Revan was just trying to play the part.
He waged a war that lasted three years, and yes he probably would have won had he only been contested by pure military methods he still 1) lost and 2) only was in power for a few years.
Revan is an example of someone who has everything going for them who still loses due to a miscalculation or a successful calculated risk taken by the opposition.
It's precise as shit and smooth as hell to look at. Basically everyone likes to think that their reflexes are keen and that they never miss their mark - which is a fucking lie.
See >>78654095 and >>78654022
Revan didn't do shit to the Jedi Order, mainly because he wasn't trying to fucking kill them, and even he - with teh Star Forge couldn't hold off the entire fucking Republic once they knew where it was.
Nihilus and Sion were the ones who caused the great Jedi Purge, probably because the Former is a walking, talking Eldricht Abomination, and the other Literally cannot die.
The Revanchist > Darth Revan > Redeemed Revan
Mandalorian Wars will always be his high point
Potentially, but not on the level of someone like Nihilus and Sidious.
Assuming that the EU is still a thing for the moment, if you took all the Sith in history and placed them on a Planet to fight - Sidious would rape the shit out of all of them.
Before the Disney clean up, Sidious was confirmed to be the Strongest Sith in galactic history. No one comes close.
He's also a smart motherfucker to have fooled the entire fucking Galaxy and control both sides of a Galactic Scale conflict while leading his own apprentice and the entirety of the Jedi Order on a wild goose chase, while also using HIMSELF as bait.
>the clone troopers in the actual movies are good
Full stop. No.
Clone troopers only became good in extended media, with first EU authors, then republic commando and TCW.
The clone troopers Lucas showed us in the movies were faceless drones with zero personality, so essentially just like almost every other person in the movies, except with less lines.
I'm going to spell it out for you here crisp and clear, so you actually get it:
>People like clone troopers NOW.
>People did NOT like clone troopers when the movies hit the cinemas
>casuals would be confused
From what I see in the feedback to TFA, it's more the hardcore nerds that get confused by even the most simple concepts, while casuals have zero problems with them. My dad is approaching 80 and super casual. He had zero problems following TFA. Neither did my spouse. My siblings, some of whom think sci-fi is "dumb" and daily soaps are all they watch, had zero problems following the plot either. Normal people have less problems with complex plots than you might think.
Both the Jedi and Sith being wrong is a side theme hinted at in TFA's different portrayal of the force. Note how now the light side is shown to be an active, tempting influence rather than the passive, harmonic field we knew from before.
>So I can't see them ordering assassinations left and right.
I was using Palpatine as a reference for killing his master. My idea of an assassination would be like poisoning or putting a fellow Sith in a situation they cannot use their full power.
>The Sith value direct showings of strength and power over
You have a point. It would be enjoyable to see Sith vs Sith in direct confrontation. I hope we get to see the Sith empire and how it collapsed. Maybe in the style of Rome or China.
Romance of the Three Kingdoms featuring Sith factions?
This reminds me of the theory that Finn is actually an undercover agent who doesn't even know he's an undercover agent. Basically Kylo Ren mindfucked him, probably literally to some people, to create a "traitor" who will join the Resistance and ultimately betray them when his programming kicks in. Hux doesn't know and part of the beauty of this plan is having a Stormtrooper go traitor undermines Hux's position.
And while we're riding the Denial Train down to Bullshit Junction I've also seen a theory that Ben is NOT a traitor. He's actually under deep cover by order of Luke who is afraid Snoke, even if he isn't Sith, will eventually become one or something just as bad. Maybe not today but eventually, thus undermining the death of the Emperor. In his quarters Ren is asking for Grandpappy Anakin's help in resisting/suppressing his own Light so Snoke can't detect him. When confronting Han, Ben used his power to link with Han's mind and tell him the truth in a way the audience can't take part in. Han's offer to help was the belief that Kylo Ren killing him will not only get him in good with Snoke but erase any potential suspicion, thus Han sacrificed himself to protect his son on a incredibly dangerous mission. This leads to Snoke wanting to complete Kylo Ren's training, meaning the sacrifice apparently worked.
That plague is a game changer though, since it accelerates when a victim uses the force or the force is used on said victim. Plus all that hivemind shit.
It infecting sheeve and nihilus is fucking scary to me, because it comes down to it being in control of both or one of tgem actually beating its control and being in charge of every infected sith in this brawl.
Exactly! It's a welcome continuation of the themes shown previously with the force, and actually something completely new.
>"people aren't as dumb as I think they are" is bait
What? Is reality making you uncomfortable?
>>People did NOT like clone troopers when the movies hit the cinemas
This is straight up not true, The clones were very hyped cause their cool vehicles, being jango's clones, and being "Heroic" stormtroopers
Clone wars and Republic Commando Enhance that effect and they both came out before ROTS
Sion could not be killed unless he allowed it, and in combat he was a monster.
Nhilus and The Sith Emperor weren't even human they were like eldritch abominations, that could destroy entire planets
Kind of an inversion of themes really which implies the 'dark' and 'light' side aren't evil or good per se. What if it simply boils down to 'passion' and 'calm'. Having Ren go full evil to get his jedi-esque detachment would be pretty neat, especially when you flip it around and give us an emotional and passionate hero.
Even better would be if they used both aspects of the force at different stages in their development.
There was a large time gap between AotC (which people disliked the clones in) and the media that followed that made them more acceptable in RotS. The movie portrayal that people disliked about them didn't change however. It's the non-movie media that made clones GOOD.

You are so full of it man, the clones were loved, their toys and mech flew off the shelves,
Really? We're actually doing this right now?
Vitiate's power came from Ancient Sith rituals that no one had the stones to try, except him.
Nihilus, being a wound in the Force, gained a very unique variant of Force Drain.
In both cases, they were only able to DRAIN entire planets of life at most.
Palpatine Mindraped Billions of people on Byss. Used Force Lightning to char the entire surface of a planet.
And most notably, used Force Storms to literally destroy a planet, and consumer another one whole. He also used this power to teleport Luke from a Planet to another across the galaxy.
EU Palptatine is one of the strongest beings in the series, beaten only by EU Luke, The Ones, and Abeloth. No one else.
in KotOR and/or KotOR II you've only very rarely done dark side playthroughs of either game (if at all) because you don't like doing evil playthroughs in games with morality systemsthere is a chance you might be me.
Also Lucas said himself Sidious is the strongest force user ever in Star Wars. Only Anakin/Vader could have been stronger than him but he never lived up to his full potential.
Even when Vader killed him he wasn't stronger, Vader would have lost a straight up fight, and even taking him off guard it still cost Vader his own life too.
These people need to stop doubting Sheev.
Don't worry, anon, the shit train doesn't have to end there.
Luke doesn't tell anyone about Kylo Ren's mission because he learned thanks to Vader that he secrets can be ferreted out by the enemy. Rey doesn't learn until the end when she kills Kylo Ren and he imparts the truth to her in a Force vision.
>I want a running gag in the sequels where Finn is constantly harassed by the Trooper coming in out of nowhere at the most random of times.
That would be awful, and ruin a nice segment
Lucas says a lot of things, anon.
One day, he says no SW VII, the next day, he makes a new draft then tosses it and sells his company to Disney.
One day, he says Palpatine is the most powerful force user, the next day, he gives us Mortis, force users that could apparently destroy the entire galaxy.
Allowing yourself to become horribly disfigured just to acquire a new apprentice seems very...stupid. And unSheeve-like. Not to mention allowing yourself to be seen as weak by your new apprentice. That's pretty damn unSith-like.
He didn't. The entire point of that scene is that Mace had him and had a real chance to kill him off, but it was Anakin's intervention that ruined it. Sheev was playing up his helplessness though and exaggerating how weak he was, but that didn't mean he wasn't in a bad spot.
I'm not sure Lucas changed his mind on this one. Filoni is on record as saying to the writers that the best way to conceptualize the story is like it's one big Force vision but he never actually said it was. I suspect, and cannot say since I'm not him (or his cowboy hat which is where all his power derives anyway) that he's say it doesn't really matter. Within the Force like that, real and unreal have no meaning. The Family can exist and be real but only as long as the vision does. If it had something worth learning (debatable) then it was very much real even if it was just the Force telling a fairytale.
Fittingly enough, Lucas had the same approach to the question of whether Plagueis and/or Sidious were responsible for Anakin's birth. He said it was something viewers could consider and decide for themselves.
The EU being the EU, a few different sources tried to settle it one way or another, so a few different reference guides "confirm" that the Sith weren't involved, or "confirm" that they were. Luceno found a middle ground in the Plagueis novel by having him and Sidious cause a shift in the Force, and the Force reacts by going "fuck you, time to make someone who's going to kill your asses." So they both did and didn't have a hand in creating Anakin.
>tumblr is losing their shit over this pic
Do I need to have played the KOTOR games prior to reading Old Republic novels like Revan and the Darth Bane series? I've got the games and all but one of the books, but wasn't sure if it was okay to go into the books first.
I'm deciding whether to go ahead with Revan (the first OR novel I have, chronologically) or read Kenobi instead.

It's easier in morrowind or Skyrim, because the game doesn't really re-enforce you're being an evil bastard. Maybe a tad self serving at most. But a Bioware game? They spell it out: "you're morally disgusting, and these people's lives are ruined forever."
I wish I could still wheel and deal like I used to.
Just drew a complete Boba from my free Bronzium Data Card in Galaxy of Heroes. Sick.
The funny thing is that Ben Quadinaros, the goofy looking dude who never made it past the starting line, ended up getting good and becoming Sebulba's main rival
In the EU he was a scrub from the minor leagues who only entered the race on a dare. Apparently canon at least kept the part about him being a rookie nobody at the time of that race.
It was alright at first, basically be a background character in Star Wars, set in between ANH and ESB. Fight for the Empire, join the Rebellion, be a pirate, or just start a business or a city and do stuff with other peeps.
Then the NGE rolled out and I think the timeline was moved to post-ESB. Also every single mechanic in the game got FUBAR'd and it was never the same. SOE tried to turn it into WoW in space.

His anger gives him strength, so in order to give himself an edge he always goes to holochan before a battle and lays the smack down on some shitposters who insist Boles Roor is the greatest podracing champ of all time even though both of those wins were vacated after he was found to use performance enhancing drugs.
Joke's on Vader though, they're just pretending to be stupid!

Poe: "You've been listening to propaganda, we don't- NO! I won't rape you!"

Poe: "I-What!? ... Maybe if you buy me dinner first."
Charlie Rose: "So you aren't happy with anything JJ Abrams and Disney have done with Star Wars?"

Lightsabers slice through metals easily enough so pretty sure it doesn't need to be stated. No clue if there are still any lightsaber resistant metals in canon. Cortosis has been mentioned but only use has been an anti-blaster mesh worn by a cyborg jackass in A New Dawn.

What was your audience's reaction when Luke appeared? Mine was full of people gasping and I think a few people were crying. I teared up a little bit myself when he first turned around and you could only see his beard and when he took the hood off I was basically pic related.
Fuck, wrong pic but close enough.
Also one thing I fucking love about TFA is how it treats the OT like legends because I've seen little kids who legitimately are thinking of the OT the same way Rey did. I can't imagine how fucking awesome it would be to be a parent right now showing your kids the OT after TFA.
At all three showings I've been to, nobody reacted to Luke. No reaction to Leia, Threepio, Vader's helmet, Ackbar, etc.
Han and Chewie's entrance was the only one that got a reaction every time, even if it was just a few people going "woo" or "yeah." The Falcon got a laugh all three times, too. I heard a single "aww" once when Artoo was revealed.
Most of the reactions in my theater were based around funny shit, the old cast (except for Luke, oddly enough), and some minor shit.
I think I was the only one who said anything when Ackbar showed up, same for some of the more subtle things.
Initially they sound like they take the mysticism away from the force. No longer making it about the morality or faith but about biology and blood. I understand that that's not what they are, but they did a very poor job at explaining it in Episode 1.
People grasped onto the idea that they are the cause of the Force, which isn't actually the case.
They were just a little peeved at the thought of the 'mystical' aspects of the Force being lessened, for some reason.
I just read the issues of all the Star Wars comics I have and I have to say, Vader is shit as of issue 5. Issue one was alright then it gets pants on head retarded with evil 3PO/R2, Geonosian droids, the girl, and Palpatine's science replacement for the force. I feel like all the other writers are channeling the OT while Kieron Gillen, who sucks anyway, is channeling the prequels a bit more.

The whole "Starkiller" thing kind of pisses me off, the First must have been like:
>Hey, you know that thing that took 20 years to build and was destroyed shortly after it's completion? The one that when the Empire tried it a second time it was destroyed even more easily?
>Let's build another one that's like 50 times bigger! Third time's the charm, right? Right?
Starkiller was far better designed, needing a coordinated ground and air assault that was only viable when the weapon was charged to bring it down. The Death Stars, by needing to be fairly close to the planet to destroy it, were tactical weapons while Starkiller, being able to kill planets in other systems then moving along, was a strategic weapon.
Plus it actually worked this time. The seat of the New Republic has been completely obliterated and now there'll be another scramble for galactic supremacy. All that's left is the nu-Rebels vs nu-Empire beef.
At least it wasn't one kid with voices in his head.
Still Starkiller was much harder, if not for Han getting everyone in, Finn getting the person to get the shields down, Chewie blowing a hole and Poe being a good pilot that run was going to fail.
Unfortunately, this is one of those questions that you have to fork over more money to Dath Mouse to get answered. The Novel and Dictionary explain that Leia has almost no budget and the only fighters she got were whatever was in storage mainly old x-wings and kalimarian transports
So the First Order is thinking about replacing the Storm Troopers with new Clone Troopers? How about using Han as a template?
I've never understood the love for Clones, personally.
I mean, from a 'military apsect, Star Wars is a total fucking mess, especially the Clone Wars, a series that really isn't very good in terms of tone or coherency. Attempts to portray character become confusing because they all blend together, and watching characters shout "MY BROTHER" when bad things happen becomes cringeworthy quite quickly. Design wise they are "okay", but furthermore it descends into pure fanwankery when people act like Stormtroopers are inferior (which sadly has become canon) in an attempt to ease a fanbase that doesn't understand the basics of story telling.
Your talking about a fandom that claimed Boba Fett was the one of the greatest fighters in the galaxy despite doing absolutely nothing and "dying" like a bitch when he finally did do something.
TCW and the 2d cartoon did add a lot of awesome to their mystique though
Finn and TR-8R, as well as The Guy Who KO's a Jedi In Half A Second In Melee in Rebels show us that stormtrooper competency varies. Some of the ones we see are a LOT better than any clones.
Others suck ass.
I don't give a shit about the EU or the animated show, does that make me a pleb?
The entirety of the movie was predictable and too shallow for any genuine reactions. Only funny jokes like B-88, Kylo acting like a bitch, and goofy stormtrooper stuff like traitor and noping out got some laughs.
Because he's the king of the galaxy. No, seriously, I could explain it easily with the Jedi meddling in politics and such meddling requiring a bit of a power trade-off with the chancellor's office, but for all its focus on politics, the PT explicitely tells us about as much about how the galaxy actually works as TFA. It, too, does nothing more than introduce the parties present, that's it.
Because the Jedi were heavily involved in the Clone Wars. He got Sifo Dyas involved in creating the clone army so when the Clone Wars happened and the Jedi were generals he could have an excuse to push bullshit on them in the name of making sure the Jedi and the Senate were on the same page regarding the war. Later he probably used this (along with Dooku's past as a Jedi) so he could say that the Jedi created the war so they could take over the Republic.
I really liked the idea of Revan being female back when I played the game, and was a bit bummed when I heard he's canonically male. A female Darth Vader-esque character Just seemed cool to me at the time.
>>78657292 and don't be a fucking idiot like
midi-chlorians were not well (or at all) explained in the movies, which is most peoples only experience for Star Wars. It made it seem like the little buggers gave you force powers, that the force WAS midi-chlorians.
Instead you can think of them more like looking at your genes to see if you're prone to certain cancers or illnesses. They don't give you powers, but if you have them you can GET powers.
>glorious first world countries are Imperials
>shitty third world countries are rebel scum
It's like pottery, it rhymes.
>Russia is the Empire's 1 Fan
Can't say I'm shocked.
>The seat of the New Republic has been completely obliterate
Like that matters, the capital planet of the New Republic changes each time a new Chancellor is elected.
The loss of the fleet is much more pressing.
I started paying KotOR for the first time like 3 days ago.
Why those fuckers at BioWare don't let me have a romance with the best girl? They made the perfect waifu but she is 15. Fuck.
To be honest I don't know what this thread is about but recently I've been getting into Star Wars and I've never seen any of the shows. Which are the best? What should I watch? Spoonfeed me please thank you.
Congrats on answering your own question.
Mission is daughterfu material, not waifu you sick fucks.
basically. I guess the fleet moves to protect the new capital planet, and they blew up the capital planet and the majority of the Republic fleet.
So now, the only group that has a majority of working ships is the Resistance. SI guess we can expect either the remaining Republic fleet to either join, or absorb the resistance to make a new one.
Watch both Clone Wars shows. The 2003 show is great though it's non canon and doesn't have much of a story. The CGI Clone Wars is the best Star Wars show ever but it's first few seasons are kind of hit and miss and every now and then it has a weird arc about politics or Jar Jar shit that you can skip if you want. Rebels is hit and miss right now but will hopefully end up where the CGI Clone Wars went where it's amazing.
Here's a picture of recommended arcs from the CGI Clone Wars.
>To be honest I don't know what this thread is about
Star Wars. Chill here if you like Star Wars.
>Which are the best? What should I watch? Spoonfeed me please thank you.
Ok mate. There are a bunch of shows.
Droids and Ewoks, old cartoons, not really relevant at all. Clone Wars (2003) is a 2 hour long miniseries. It's not canon, but nice to watch.
Then you get to the two canon ones;
>The Clone Wars
Absolutely recommended. Lucas's pet project, designed to expand the Star Wars universe and flesh out characters. It's over 100 episode long, and you'll see why when you watch it. Some early episodes are hit-and-miss, but once you get further into the show, you will see some of the most brilliant stuff in the entire franchise.
A follow-up to TCW, but featuring mostly original characters. It's not as good as TCW, but still in its early days, and it's been improving rapidly. Is probably going to be the last on-screen appearance of Vader, at least for a while (unless he gets a Cameo in Rogue One). Definitely watch AFTER TCW though.
Hope I helped, feel free to ask any questions
Thanks. 2 hours is pretty short, maybe I'll eventually go back and check that out. Right now I have the first episode of the cgi series open though. I didn't expect it would be so easy to find somewhere to watch it. I'm gonna watch it now
Actually it makes a handy dumbass detector. You can only hold on to hate so long before it becomes ridiculous. It's been over a decade now, anon, Jar Jar can no longer harm you. Sensible people have stopped sperging about it because it's over and done. It's not anything to act surprised about or somehow superior to others. The ones who stopped caring got it right.
Ahsoka isn't in it too much, but they're building up to her fight with Vader this very Season, so you're gonna' want to catch up.
As for how good it is, think TCW Season 1-2. Hit and Miss, but overall enjoyable.
The series took a hit in art budget and sadly no longer has the easy method of replacing all military personnel with Clones for easy to explain away sameface and same VA. Stories are fairly decent and it's getting better. It's also begun including more TCWs characters and helping wrap up some loose ends with their second season.
But if you bring Jarjar up yourself, that no longer applies. People who didn't like Jarjar then aren't going to like him now. If you literally force the topic in a conversation and they say "He sucks", they're not being dumbasses, they're giving you an honest answer you happen not to like.
Your dumbass detector only works if THEY bring up Jarjar without prompting.
You need to track back the conversation. The "dumbass detector" is >>78656079
Unwilling to entertain opposing opinion? Check.
Odds of being a shit poster? Off the charts.
>Then the NGE rolled out and I think the timeline was moved to post-ESB
Nope, still post-ANH, with an Echo Base flashopoint mission just for fun which only served to confuse things
I did. Not hugely so but I can tell it's a show I'll watch all of. I already kind of knew that before really.
I don't have Netflix but I've found a site that seems to stream every episode.
Electrostaves and riot control batons, so far. Looks to be if you electrify your weapon with a powerful enough current, you should be good. Didn't quite work out so much for these guys though
Seems to be more about the energy field around the weapon forming a protective barrier between metal and lightsaber by repelling the latter. Just an electric charge won't cut it.
No huge shock. Lightsabers never were very good against energy fields.
that gives some evidence to Lightsabers working through magnetic fields more than anything. With that, any metal that can generate an intense enough magnetic field around itself should be able to repulse a lightsaber blade.
You just have to make sure that it's also not so strong that you can't lift if off of a metal table, or pull all magnetic things to you all the time.
If you enjoyed the first episode, you'll really love where the show goes I think.
The best thing about the show is the variety. One episode may be exclusively about the Clones. Then maybe Greivous gets a spotlight. Or Kit Fisto. Or Mandalorians. Or Bounty Hunters.
If you don't like one story, the next could be something COMPLETELY different and right up your alley. You can go from comedy, to (i shit you not) horror episodes.
There really is something for everyone with TCW, much more so than Rebels which has kinda' lost some of the TCW audience.
Post little things you would do to change TFA.
>Kylo Ren is a force user supremacist
>The First Order seized Kamino and has been cloning the blood of a Jedi Kylo killed to inject in their Stormtroopers to enhance their combat abilities. Basically committing full on force blasphemy
>part of the reason why they do this is because they're doing what the Empire did with Inquisitors but on a much larger scale
>Kylo Ren is the enthusiastic leader of the First Order but is secretly being ordered around by Snoke and only his personal guard know how whiny he is
>part of the propaganda of the Stormtroopers is Snoke pulling some dark side fuckery to make them truly feel in the force that they are right and will end up winning the war. Instead of Hux doing the speech, Kylo goes full Hitler and mixes the first Snoke scene in where he asks the Stormtroopers "THERE HAS BEEN AN AWAKENING!!! HAVE YOU FELT IT?!!"
>No Starkiller battle/Starkiller isn't destroyed
>Give Williams more freedom with the music
>Cut back on the OT references
Make Rey fuck something up at least once
That's it really. Movie did its purpose, I enjoyed it. I am expecting a lot from 8 though, I'll be less forgiving on that one if it plays it as safe as TFA did.
>Rey did fuck things up twice.
Yeah she failed to keep the audience immersed and interested
Dunno. Feel like she got off too easy. I still like her. I actually think her design at the end of the movie might be my favorite over Anakin/Luke's designs.
I'm interested to see where she goes.
>Kylo Ren's parentage revealed by Han telling Leia that he saw their son, not by Snoke before. Keep the scene of Kylo Ren talking to Vader's helmet though.
>Make Rey more like Han. A good pilot, decent mechanic, but things obviously don't go her way all the time. Give her at least once instance of "It's not my fault!"
>Rey has little moments of pause before doing the cooler shit she does (much like when she closes her eyes in the lightsaber fight) showing her calming herself down/unknowingly connecting to the force.
>the movie ends when Luke takes off his hood, cutting the back and forth face shots and the wide shot.
pfft maybe in your part of the planet.
The things that I can think of are releasing the alien things on Han's tow ship, which happily worked out pretty much the same way, if not better, than what she intended. What was the other thing she fucked up?
People seem to focus on Rey handling Unkar's thugs so that Finn stops rushing to save her, however they seem to overlook a few minutes later when Finn saves her once and arguably a second time. The first time he pulled her away from the Stormtroopers, which is less than certain but probable they would have killed her, and the second time definitely in pulling her from the tent before TIEs exploded it. Neither time she was happy with him grabbing her hand, but after this second save next we see her offering her hand to him. It plays as the point where, realizing he saved her, she offers him her acceptance.
Did she ever need saved again? Sure she got out of her cell in Starkiller Base, albeit with Kylo Ren's accidental help in showing her how to connect her mind to others with the Force. But Rey still would have most likely needed them to pick her up anyway, unless she can manage to steal a spacecraft. To combat Kylo Ren she needed Finn to have brought her the Lightsaber. She also was saved by the timely arrival of the Falcon at the end.
Honestly I can't see where she's always perfect and never in real trouble and doesn't need help.
It's not wrong to want sharper consequences for protagonists. I actually agree with you in principle. I would love a shift in the cinematic scope where a protagonist can lose and lose hard. The problem with that is always scale. Writers need to balance the lows with the highs.
SW7 does have its share of lows, but I feel that it was so upbeat for most of its main character's plotline, because they were killing a major protagonist permanently. Rey's minor fuck-ups were minor to contrast the jarring death of a main character.
The second thing they experimented with was the villain. Ren is a very nonstandard concept as an antagonist. He's genuinely something new which, again, is always a risk. People might not like it.
So, with two big risks like that, you need to play it safe with the rest of the cast, which means Rey suffering only fairly minor immediate setbacks. Some of these could very well have far reaching consequences later on, though, especially revealing herself to Snoke early as a force user. Another snake in the garden of Eden in terms of Rey is her tapping into the dark side frequently. Her on the surface flawlessness is really only skin deep, but it's necessary to keep the movie from being too dark for Hollywood money to back.
Does anyone else find it weird that the Star Wars movies aren't on Netflix? You would think they would be getting their shit together and putting them on there especially with all the kids used to using Netflix who will want to watch the other movies after TFA
You say this posting best girl.
I think its because of how much money Star Wars makes physically. Everyone owns Star Wars physically, even multiple times because of the re-releases and wanting the movies on newer tech.
Plus, they just started releasing the movie digitally themselves, and released those fancy new steelbook blu rays.
So yeah, they're probably avoiding Netflix, at least for now.
