Best ship in the series.
All others a shit.
It was inevitable. What other OT characters do you think should show up next?
Other than Luke, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Han, Chewbacca and Boba Fett, everyone is fair game.
Also, what Prequel or CW characters would you like to see return?
Good taste anon however I'm more of a fan of the ARC-170
>Luke uses the Force to blow up a moon-sized space station in one shot while piloting a fighter and firing torpedoes he's never shown having any experience with before.
>Anakin wins a death race that would injure or kill the average human and later blows up a droid control ship none of the adult pilots could scratch the surface while at the ripe old age of 9.
>Rey instinctively taps into a mental connection with an emotionally unstable darksider who is shown having zero control over anything he does, and later tries this against a random mook, only succeeding after several tries. She later defeats a wounded man in a swordfight using no powers beyond the same CQC experience we previously saw her use on Jakku.
There has never been sense in Star Wars, and you're wrong to ever expect it.
No man, that whole argument was getting stupid, please let's not pollute a new thread with it. The whole thing boils down to people liking different things. There was no way everyone was going to see eye to eye on TFA. The whole "Rey is/isn't a Mary Sue" debate is completely played out but it won't just die.
So besides Rogue One, Episode VIII, IX, and Young Han Solo, what other movies do you guys wanna see?
I know a Obi-Wan during his "Ben" years on Tatooine has been mentioned, Bob Fett has been rumored, but what else?
Would you want to see a Maul prequel? The Emperor? "Legacy" with Darth Talon?
Because the truth is, Yoda is a terrible teacher.
>Do or do not, there is no try
Is a terrible lesson. OF COURSE you have to try and do something before you can do it, that's the whole point of learning. Did he really expect Luke to lift the X-wing on the first try?
Anyone else here feels that TFA needed more alien characters? It's always the same: humans, the wise midget, the chewie and the secondary characters. I like Rebels and TCW because at least we get to see more aliens characters.
>Ezra, doomed to be manlet or a late bloomer?
We'll see what Tony Revolori looks like in a few years.
The film makes it abundantly clear he's very a very experienced pilot, and this shot is something he does everyday, flying his T-16 in a canyon and shooting rats.
Anakins wins a race, which his mother was hesitant to let him enter, because he's been in these races many times before and failed to finish everytime
Rey beats someone with far more experience and training than her both mentally and physically, something Anakin and Luke both fail to do, argue as much as you like that Kylo is injured but the movie doesn't show this as he swings his sword around and battles with blisteringly fast spinning attacks as though there's nothing wrong with him, as well as using powers she has never been taught to use and doesn't know exist
I'd like a Darth Bane film showing him creating the Rule of 2 Sith or a movie with Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan showing how Obi Wan met Satine. An animated film featuring a young Dooku and Qui-Gon would be nice too. It would help show their relationship
I wonder how Coruscant is doing now that it isn't the capital. Well, better than the Hosnian system that's for sure, but now that it's no longer the de facto most important world in the galaxy where all the business and power players hang out, I wonder if the surface is still okay or if the slums have risen up and devoured it like a cancer.
You got any idea how much of a pain full-body and facial makeup would be, anon? It's a matter of practicality. Sure they could CGI the characters in, but we've only had two main characters for that so far, and do you really want to coin flip on Jar Jar and Yoda?
>Star Wars 1313, or anything dealing with Coruscant underworld
Wouldn't that be a Boba Fett movie?
>Those Old Republic Hammerheads
Obi-Wan might be doable. I could see Ahsoka or Rex tracking him down for advice or help, since they know from Kanan's holocron that he survived Order 66, and Bail knows where he went.
>"Trying" implies doubting you can do it
Well yeah. When you do a difficult task for the first time, you probably won't succeed. But if you repeat it several times you will.
You can't just put on some skis and already know how to use them, you need to TRY several times until you get the hang of it

Yoda was such a weird one. That damn TPM puppet, sweet Sheevus Christ. Sure the original was a pain in the ass but you think they'd have managed something better than...Anyway CGI Yoda was definitely a good call and let him act more. I just wish they'd left out that wacky battle cry against Dooku but we can't have everything.
Hm. Actually Jim Henson company did a decent job with the Rygel puppet in the few scenes when he got his froggy ass out of his hover chair. They had a lot of fun puppets in that show.
I was gonna say it might be Leonis, but you're right, it's Ezra's symbol (unless of course there are other people with it. Would make for some fun shenanigans, come to think of it. The rebels just recognize the symbol and grab some random kid, then have to prevent him ratting them out.)
except that the force seems to work entirely upon your own will.
If you don't think you can do something, even a little bit, you lack the will power to make it happen. The training so to understand that you can do these things with the force, not to actually learn how to do them.
If you believe it, you can do it, basically.
Yeah, it's not the same, but obviously the design was inspired.
This smells like Filoni's work
So even Leia shows up huh? This must pretty much confirm the rebel crew won't make it past episode 4. Seems very weird not even she would mention them, on top of them never showing up at any major events in any comics or in the movies.
A ton of Jedi training, it turns out, was indoctrination. They crept out powers slowly when they felt kiddies were ready for it.
Ahsoka's first attempt at the Mind Trick outside of training was kind of fun. She learns that mind control is surprisingly literal even over your intent.
>A ton of Jedi training, it turns out, was indoctrination
I mean, yeah, this is kinda important.
People who can use the Force can kill with their minds.
That definitely needs to checked in some way
Building the confidence and piece of mind to open yourself to force.
Luke's problem wasn't that he needed to lift increasingly heavy objects until he reached the weight of an x-wing, his problem was that he had doubts he could lift the ship at all.
>Yoda is a terrible teacher.
No, you just don't understand the concept of the force. That's why you bitch about Rey's use of the force so much. You don't have to learn it, you just have to believe in yourself. Yoda said there is no difference between moving rocks and spaceships. It's just your (lack of) imagination that limits your abilities. Luke could've easily lift the X-wing in TESB, but he failed because he thought it was impossible.
>Seems very weird not even she would mention them, on top of them never showing up at any major events in any comics or in the movies.
They're relatively minor players in a Rebellion numbered in the hundreds or thousands
Why does every little thing need to be mentioned as an aside in some piece of media for it to apply to the grander scheme of things? Not everyone is going to be as hugely significant as the OT characters.
Am I a furry for wanting to fuck Juhani?
If Tatooine shows up, it would probably just be Jabba's palace, since they'll probably start dealing with criminal organizations soon.
They could also use the Black Sun, maybe even recanonize Xizor
The Jenner kid is also married to Super qt.
Plus him saying Luke shouldn't go to Cloud City because "If you go now, help them you could, but you would destroy all for which they have fought and suffered...".
He was completely wrong. Luke saved their asses and his presence didn't fuck up the Rebellion in the slightest.
A new Star Wars cartoon centered on an ace TIE fighter pilot going up the ranks in the Emperor's Secret Order.
I want to believe.
Filoni here. I will be working in my secret project with those guys from Industrial Light and Magic. It's a sex bot called...err.. Ahsoka. Because I love her a lot. I saved her once in TCW and I will save her again in Rrebels. Filoni, out.
He did want to bring Revan into TCWs. Surprisingly Lucas was fine with it up until the point he decided it didn't match how he wanted the Force to work. No Sith Ghosts and all that.
Ultimately it was for the best, the version of Bane they ultimately used in season 6 was much better. Evil Space Samurai voiced by Hamill.
Are you kidding. Sheev and Vader both know of Jar Jar's latent destructive powers. I'm certain that after Anakin cleaned out the temple, Sheev told him to go take care of Jar Jar just to be on the safe side.
>but the movie doesn't show this as he swings his sword around and battles with blisteringly fast spinning attacks as though there's nothing wrong with him
you're a fucking idiot.
>show gun is pretty powerful
>later on after Kylo is hit the camera lingers on his gutshot and the pool of blood at his feet.
>Kylo holds his side, and pounds his wound to get adrenaline
>no guys he's at 100 per cent
It wasnt even subtle. Did JJ need to step on screen and tell you "by the way Kylo is affected by his wound guys, just in case you didnt get it."
For the past couple of days I've been fantasizing about how cool a current-gen Star Wars fighting game would be. Even if it was entirely based on the new canon, you could still fill up a roster of at least 50 fighters. I'm imagining characters from the original trilogy, the prequels, The Clone Wars, Rebels, and The Force Awakens.
I know it will never happen, but I can dream.
We've already seen his character.
Yeah, all that happens, then he fights and it dissapears and it's like none of it ever happened, watch the fight again
If they wanted to show it effecting him they could've had him hobbling around barley able to lift his saber, wincing and clutching his wound, instead he's spinning around and swinging his sword with the strength and speed of a fit and able, uninjured person
I'm going to assume you don't know what adrenaline is, how your body can temporarily block out pain and have never been seriously injured AND needed to remain active or get wrecked in your life.
Kylo's portrayal is accurate enough. Rey's victory is as much the force as what's left of his strength just burning out at that point.
Here's the problem though.
How would you make the movesets distinct? Most jedi would play pretty much the same way.
One problem I've always had wth the Force is the lack of variety in its powers we're shown. All we see is Telikenesis, ESP and Force Lighting if you're evil.
If Star Wars were an anime, each jedi would have a special power, like say fire, ice or whatever
It was clear enough what you meant. I was just wondering what the clone who sits behind the pilot does, exactly. Forward gunner/navigator/sensor reader. Oh shit, he's the clone riding Astromech. Ha.
The clone wars era Y-Wing is a two seater as well, if I remember correctly.
You can make excuses for it all day long, but I think really, you know if it was good you wouldn't need to. Maybe you got so hyped up you can't bear that it was a disappointment and are trying to convince yourself it wasn't, or maybe you never really cared much for the other star wars movies but liked the avengers.
The fact is this movie is terrible and made for the retards who lap up avengers shit, it was the same meaningless action and quirky forced awkward humour, it wasn't star wars at all. Never in any other star wars movie do they make jokes at the villains expense, Vader, Maul, Even Dooku are treated as 100% serious threats. In this Kylo is treated as the but of jokes and gives his own quips from the very beggining. It was absolute garbage.
>Fuck me he looks badass.
Everyone is Uprising is sexy.
Not just adrenaline but almost certainly the Force as well. We know it augments physical attributes, and with several key dark siders, Maul and Anakin, we've witnessed them using the Force to survive much worse wounds that should have proven fatal.
Uprising has some fantastic designs, but I am scared they're going to all be confined to the mobile game. I'd absolutely love a comic miniseries with these characters, to give them the spotlight they deserve.
>I was just wondering what the clone who sits behind the pilot does, exactly
Well, in the EU all he did was mount the forward guns. I guess if something happened to the primary pilot he could take over as well. He might do navigation and a lot of other things. And yeah, aha, he is the clone riding Astromech
>The clone wars era Y-Wing is a two seater as well
It was. I had actually forgotten about that. It had a pilot and gunner
>Never in any other star wars movie do they make jokes at the villains expense, Vader, Maul, Even Dooku are treated as 100% serious threats.
Dooku fights pinball wizard Yoda.
Maul is comically cut in half.
In ANH Darth Vader spins out and into space while shrieking.
I also like this genderbent, speciesbent Han & Chewie pottery they did. They're not even in the game, as far as I know, just artwork for one of the loading screens.
None of those are jokes, they're all just awkward and not intended to be funny, they're all treated seriously
Imagine if Vader interrogated someone and someone said
"Do you talk first or do I talk first? Kinda hard to understand you with the whole getup"
Or if while he was choking someone the focus switched to two stormtroopers le noping le fuk out of there!!! xD
It's fucking pathetic, it's stupid forced quirky humour designed to appeal to faggots like you
Commander also has some great designs that are almost non-existent in other media right now.
Here is what Dark Troopers look like in Canon now.
More Commander designs.
The "Smuggler Droideka's" have actually been seen in other things already. Namely the Vader comic. Well Commander has two more Smuggler Droidekas. The Oppressor, Pic Related...
... And the Sentinel.
I love Droidekas, I am glad they live on in the GCW Era.
Fuck Dice for still ignoring them though. Imagine how cool these guys could have been in Battlefront?
Oh wait, I don't need too, Free Radical already did it 12 years ago...
>Do you talk first or do I talk first? Kinda hard to understand you with the whole getup"
It literally becomes a running joke in Star Wars that Vader likes to force choke people who fail him.
>Or if while he was choking someone the focus switched to two stormtroopers le noping le fuk out of there!!! xD
Imperial Officers do the exact same shit with Vader all the time.
>It's fucking pathetic, it's stupid forced quirky humour designed to appeal to faggots like you
Han Solo quips his way through the entire OT. He must be a faggot too.
Yeah, but still, treating villains with gravitas makes them seem like a threat, intentionally making a joke out of them makes you think of them as a joke, and they aren't threatening anymore
Medical Shuttles are Canon now, for both factions. Don't think I have a picture of the Rebel ones though.
Those jokes felt like they were ripped from any number of Star Wars parodies that have been done over the years. Like a robot chicken sketch inserted into the movie itself.
A lot of humor in TFA is annoyingly self aware.
This hilarious thing, I think was a Toy that they made Canon, much like the Prisoner Transport in Rebels.
>I wonder how they're going to look like in Rogue One
Donnie Yen posted this to his instagram.
There's a whole new trooper type.
It isn't a joke, when he does it it's threatening, you see people choke to death while he stares at them
The most they ever do is look uncomfortable, they never walk off awkwardly
Han Solo says funny stuff, he doesn't do lame disney quips where it's solely focused on him saying some gay shit
>Yeah, but still, treating villains with gravitas makes them seem like a threat, intentionally making a joke out of them makes you think of them as a joke, and they aren't threatening anymore
Snoke was played straight and people found him boring and unoriginal.
Kylo as Han's son was a fairly late addition to the script, they had to work with him as a younger man and they picked a tone that a lot of people responded to.
A lot of people picked Driver as the unexpected surprise of the film, though he was polarizing with some viewers.
I'm sure someone will appreciate the new waifu's in these games.
She's a Smuggler known as Iron Liana.
Another picture of Liana jewing you for Crystals. She should hook up with the Trandoshan in Uprising.
It's really reminiscent of avengers movies, with the whole, clearly you've never made an omelette and shit like that, it's so gay
When Kylo at the start is told he can't deny his family he goes
"You are so right"
What does that even mean? It's so lame
I'm surprised no one ever brings up "Droid please!" either
>It isn't a joke, when he does it it's threatening, you see people choke to death while he stares at them
They literally cut to him mid-way through choking people in the later movies. Its played as a gag
>The most they ever do is look uncomfortable, they never walk off awkwardly
Their panic is the levity. You can dislike TFa for being unsubtle, but it's the same premise.
>Han Solo says funny stuff, he doesn't do lame disney quips where it's solely focused on him saying some gay shit
No, he's doing quips. It's the same shit. He fucking impersonates a stormtrooper with a silly voice and is outright doing slapstick in ROTJ.
Er'kit using the first known examples of the Luggabeast.
In Rey's Survival Guide, it's explained that the Teedo on Jakku don't make them, but buy them from traders/ It's possible the Er'kit make them.
And? He was boring and unoriginal, it had nothing to do with him not being a joke and everything to do with how he was actually boring and unoriginal. Vader was played straight, the Emperor was played straight, even Maul, and everyone loves them.
Don't get me wrong, there are things I liked, the idea of Kylo Ren, the idea of Finn were really cool, but they were handled poorly.
TIE Advanced X1, usable as a special unit in this game.
Seems like, after ANH anyways, this ship wasn't exclusive to Vader/Inquisitors, but rather available to the best pilots in the Empire, along with the Defenders.
I think this is supposed to be a Hutt bodyguard.
I know the scene your talking about, and no, it's not played as a joke, just because it cuts to him half way through choking someone doesn't make it a joke.
They aren't panicking, they know what's going on and just avoid it like it's a pain in the ass instead of scary.
It's funny, but the tone is completely different, I'm not sure what it is, but if you watch a scene of Han joking in the OT then watch the jokes from TFA, they're completely different, I don't know how to explain it, but watch it and you'll see what I mean, it feels natural in the OT, it doesn't in TFA.
>What does that even mean? It's so lame
What in the world do you think it means
>I know the scene your talking about, and no, it's not played as a joke, just because it cuts to him half way through choking someone doesn't make it a joke.
No what makes it a joke is Vader kills the person and then quips "Apology accepted, Captain Needa"
This is from Battlefront, but I thought it was worth posting. It's the last SSD in the Empire, falling on Jakku. RIP "The Ravager".
I wonder if Rae Sloane was on board...
Only that one scene where The clones walk away when they see he's having a tantrum.
Which is the point. He's not meant to be as intimidating as Vader was. He's supposed to be seen as the petulant fanboy that he was.
Another pic of Shortpaw. I wanna' know how he lost his... Paw.
All these years later, Sheev still knows that spinning is a good trick
>It's funny, but the tone is completely different, I'm not sure what it is, but if you watch a scene of Han joking in the OT then watch the jokes from TFA, they're completely different, I don't know how to explain it, but watch it and you'll see what I mean, it feels natural in the OT, it doesn't in TFA.
The game is very grind-y, so there's nothing to feel bad about here.
I'm mostly playing it for the cool designs and little bits of new Canon information they give us.
I am hoping we get a comic though. The Shattered Empire comic actually referenced Uprising, so maybe just maybe...
>you are so right
What is witty about this?
>Do I talk first? hard to understand you with the whole get up
I don't really see how this is Kylo being the butt of a joke. Our hero character tries to quip with him and he's having none of it.
>Tantrums, and stormtroopers awkwardly avoiding his tantrums
Tantrums aren't really new to Star Wars, Anakin has them through out the prequel trilogy, Vader has one at the very end of it. I suppose one could argue it's supposed to show that Kylo has little control over his emotions.
>it's serious and reaffirms how much of a threat he is
The witticism undercuts any threat in that very moment, and honestly, Vader's mostly only shown to be mostly a danger to Imperials once The Emperor is introduced.
This guy is Tam Bastion. With the Anoat Sector locked down, there is very little Rebellion presence, but he leads the few Rebel Soldiers inside the lockdown against the Empire, while inspiring a greater uprising.
As far as I know, yeah, I think there hasn't been any change.
From Commander. "Veteran" vehicles, aka "We took this classic Star Wars vehicle, painted it black, and gave it bigger guns."
Still cool though.
we shark pack fleet soon
We need to see how Rouge One does first. If Rouge One does well, but Solo doesn't then that might mean no standalone films on already established characters but more films around new heroes
I don't know, it's a really shitty line
He's being made fun off, he is the butt of a joke
Anakins tantrums are treated as serious, Kylo's is treated as a joke, I don't remember Vader ever throwing a tantrum
It doesn't, but even if it did, he's already killed someone just by staring at them over a tv screen, he's scary
I'm outta' canon vidya pics, so have some Zombies.
Yeah, it should have had a PC release at least, but putting it on the digital PSN/Xbox stores would have been ideal. I bet plenty of Star Wars fans would have been hooked.
Having to huddle over a mobile device just isn't comfortable or fun.
I personally emulate it on my laptop, but even then...
>Hammerheads from KOTOR
Dammit, guys. I just watched the trailer twice looking for the Moomo brothers before realizing you were talking about ships.
We know already. I just hope some good comes out this. I just hope we get to see new and exciting things and not the same stories told again but with this fan-base, that's not possible.
Yoda's padawan,Dooku, became a sith lord and led a war against the republic.
Dooku's padawan, Qui-Gon, remained a good, if unorthodox jedi, who discovered the chosen one, and then got himself killed by a sith lord.
Qui-gon's padawan, Obi-Wan, remained a good jedi, killed a sith lord, defeated another, and died in the grudge match with the one he beat to pave the way for a future jedi.
Obi-Wan's padawan, Anakin, became a sith lord, killed lots of people and helped cement decades of imperial tyranny at the side of the emperor. Before he died though, he turned on his master and fulfilled the prophecy and destroyed the sith.
Anakin's padawan, Ahsoka, abandoned the order after being hung out to dry by the council. She never completed her training, but remained a good person and fought against the empire.
In this entire line, I guess Qui-Gon had the most success teaching.
Is Thame Celurian still canon? I only know he exists because of that one Jedi book that was supposed to have been passed down from master to master and had everyone commenting it
Oh no, I have discovered a waifu.
A cute heroic girl Darth Maulian.
See, I don't feel like Star Wars is going to be like the MCU at all.
The only thing that suggests that is the Han Solo movie, which admittedly feels like a mistake.
Maybe it's just my Star Wars bias showing, but I feel like TFA was way higher quality than anything the MCU has done, and I feel like that wont change anytime soon.
The only thing shaking me is the Han Solo movie, which I will not deny, sounds like it will be a piece of shit that literally nobody asked for.
It's only around 5 years and Bail Organa is the one running the Rebel Cell that the Ghost crew are with. Leia would be around 15 and would probably get involved at some point since her dad is
>The only thing that suggests that is the Han Solo movie, which admittedly feels like a mistake.
How many mistakes do you think they're going to make. Disney knows this is a cash cow and they will milk it dry.
Hopefully not, his existence was unnecessary and only confuses people. It's best to just have Dooku be Yoda's padawan instead of some obscure footnote guy
I just want IG-88 to show up anywhere in the new canon. Anywhere at all. We know nothing about him now.
Is there anything in the canon media of either Vader and or Sheev sensing jedi across the galaxy and hunting them down?
Not like the Vader and Ahsoka scene, more like Sidious sensing a jedi from Coruscant and sending Inquisitors cross sector after them.
Disney would have had to ditch all the movies to be able to make Star Wars like the MCU. They bought into it with movies already in that don't match their story telling style, and have to work around that to limited success. They can try to do movies in their normal style to see how it goes, but I doubt it'll turn out how they hope.
>Leia showing up in Rebels automatically makes her a rebel leader
Not even close, anon. She's still with the Senate, slowly dipping her toes into the secret world that her father runs. We don't know what she's even doing in the fucking episode yet.
“No, for this film we really just took it scene by scene, there wasn’t a huge regime. My part in the next film will be much more physical so I might be in the gym a bit more.” - John Boyega
Are we going to see Star Wars: Revengence?
"Rey, this time, it's my turn to protect you."
How would the fans vent their hate into the mistakes? I always felt like the reason some fans are upset that George Lucas is no longer head of Star Wars is that they are confused at who they should vent their anger at since there are now so many people working on Star Wars now to make it a single story. I suppose they could just fully blame Disney but I wonder who will be the next person to receive the hate?
And his own dad to boot. Imagine how that conversation would have gone down.
I'm guessing they went with a slightly older looking model to give her a little more gravitas. No doubt they will mention that she is the same age as Ezra, and there will be jokes about Ezra being immature.
Rouge One is a-okay in my book because its an original story about original characters.
A Han movie is fucking retarded because we already have plenty of stories about him. Hes already developed.
The anthology movies shouldnt be wasted on characters that are already developed.
I'm giving Rogue One a pass because they're trying a new genre, but I agree about the Han Solo movie.
And if they are actually doing a Boba movie, I will be upset. That would be the laziest thing they could ever do, period.
Have unused movie designs not done by McQuarrie ever been used anywhere? Looking at the prequels and TFA design books, there were some cool things there that I think should have been recycled
Anyone have any of these? I have Jango and Phasma,
The height difference is so cute.
Plenty. All throughout TCW.
Ventress, for example, was designed for Attack of the Clones.
Pablo and Filoni said NOTHING gets thrown out. It gets stored, and will be used elsewhere, even if it's in a much smaller role than originally designed for.
Of course not, it's one of the most entertaining movies in the franchise, whether you're legitimately invested in the story/characters, or if you just wanna' see Sheev fuck every bodies shit up.
Also has the best soundtrack.
>Disney but I wonder who will be the next person to receive the hate?
The director of the film and Disney itself most likely. But with Disney they have a firewall of money and probably wouldn't care if some fans are unhappy. They have casuals that buy all the merch Disney is selling so the profits aren't going to affected that badly.
I could tell that the First Order were a bunch of plebs since they didn't have any real TIE tech.
>"Luke, did I ever tell you about the time I had to make an emergency visit to Lothal in order to save Bail Organa? He had racked up quite the gambling debt."
>"He was a good friend, who still owes me 20,000 credits."
Not really. I love RotS and it is probably tied with TFA at 2nd favorite with RotJ being my favorite. It was what got me into Star Wars. It suffers from what the rest of the prequels suffer from but the bad bits are more "bad it's funny" rather than "bad it's cringey". It also has the best parodies
>TIE Defenders, TIE Ax1's, TIE Interceptors
>all Canonically better than TIE's in every way
>First Order don't use any of them
Resistance only used X-Wings too, which was annoying, but they are excused though, because X-Wings were actually top tier, and they only had limited funding from Leia, and not the New Republic.
Not at all.
My personal favorite of the prequels is AOTC. I liked Anakin's romance story with Padme. It worked in a very cheesy soap opera way. It also parallels very strongly with Leia and Han.
>My personal favorite of the prequels is AOTC. I liked Anakin's romance story with Padme. It worked in a very cheesy soap opera way. It also parallels very strongly with Leia and Han.
>How shit is New Republic intelligence that they didn't notice some evil group refitting an entire planet into a doom weapon for 20 years?
Apparently the new republic was content after restructuring to just let the first order sit on their side of the galactic fence.
>It worked in a very cheesy soap opera way
Also that battle on Geonosis is still one the sickest scenes in Star Wars with the Jedi, and all those clone troopers flying in, dropping down tanks and shit, shooting command ships as they try to launch.
Also Padme in that ripped up space suit is hotter than slave Leia
>It was inevitable. What other OT characters do you think should show up next?
All of them, Han might show up at some point. Hell, we might even get an old grizzled Obi-Wan in season three as an actual character and not a hologram.
And to think, this was supposed to be an original show. Damnit, I'm pretty disappointed in this. We are going to waste an episode on Leia instead of seeing the Ghost Crew themselves and their daily struggles.
They're saving it all for the books.
On one hand, it shows that the story group are taking this equal canon thing seriously, trusting the worldbuilding to the books.
On the other, it means the movies are going to be very obviously lacking in worldbuilding and politics and lore, while focusing entirely on the characters. Some of us may like this, but I certainly am feeling the absence of the senate scenes following the Prequels.
>There is so much I don't know about the world of VII. That was Abrams biggest failure.
ANH kind of handwaves the galactic complexities too. The Empire is evil because they're descried that way in the title crawl.
>Why are you afraid of girls?
I am terrified of menstruation and I don't understand how to give orgasms.
No one knew much about the setting of ANH either, back then. The movies should focus more on the characters and their arcs, not on worldbuilding. That's one of the reasons why the prequels failed so hard.
I'm sorry. The latter is something that a partner who knows their own body can help you with, or if you're both ignorant there actually are good sources of advice out there. I dunno what to say about fearing periods. We at least don't have to deal with actual physical side effects.
Whatever happened to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant after the Empire took over? I know they probably cleaned out the archives but did the temple itself get razed or did the Empire repurpose it?
>I certainly am feeling the absence of the senate scenes following the Prequels.
Ack, let's not go crazy here. I just want a clear spelling out of who is fighting whom. As far as I could tell, the First Order was a terrorist organization who somehow got their hands on a super weapon and some star destroyers.
It already has, and you're all going to hate the answer, but its been checked.
The only two people who have killed someone directly with the force were Vader, and Luke if you consider the xwing and death star a part of this. And, guess what,
Anakin had the highest midichilorian count ever, and its plausible his children had insane levels as wellDon't think some shmo can kill someone like that, not without some intense mediation
>Also that battle on Geonosis is still one the sickest scenes in Star Wars with the Jedi, and all those clone troopers flying
Yes, it was one of my favorite aspects because it's the first time you see scale in Star Wars.
More about the romance, I don't understand certain complaints like Anakin being a creeper. Padme was pretty clearly in love with that motherfucker from their first scene together. Anakin had romance skills. He must have learned them from the mac-daddy
Obi-Wan. No wonder, that Slaving bitch wanted him.
To be fair, these are more advanced ties and x-wings. Though I believe the resistance is actually using models 1 generation older than the republic fleet had anyway, since they are poor.
But yeah, other than having a spec ops tie, the lack of role specific fighters is strange. The starkiller operation might have gone a little smoother with some dedicated bomber craft being escorted by the x-wings.
We knew that Empire ran everything and the Rebel Alliance were fighting it and had a base. Crystal clear.
I can't remember where I read it, it was probably a joke here, but Sheev turned the council room into a ball room. If that is canon, I hope this is too
Seeing some spruced up Y-wings would have been sweet.
>It was written before Lucas decided Luke and Leia were siblings
I wonder sometimes what would have happened if Lucas planned to make the second trilogy featuring Luke looking for his long lost sibling instead of it being Leia.
>No Dark Trooper Arc
>Even when Kanan is the "new" Kyle Katarn
>Splinter of the Mind's Eye
That one were Luke slaps Leia adn she fights against Vader?
Cool. I've been colecting the trades as opposed to the comics as well. The Darth Vader comic also shows what happened to the droids that used to belong to the Separatists and what Geonosis's fate was. Star Wars is pretty fun and is sort of what you expects. The series starts off kind of weak but grows stronger imo. Kanan has the nicest art out of the 3 and is a really enjoyable read. If you get the chance, you should definatelty check out Lando as well
It'll be great they just have to open with a Catina shot and (insert whatever alien) is talking shit to solo annd right before he get his finger on his blaster solo no hesitation shoots his ass in the face while his buddies try take out their guns to fight for their fallen comrade as solo shoots them dead fucking center
I know, right? /swg/ loves to shit on him but my only beef is that he only has one outfit and it's not on my floor.
Because that's always a good idea.
>rewatching an early episode of CW
>Ahsoka straight up ignores a direct order from Anakin and puts her soldiers lives in danger
>she gets a time out as punishment
See, I'm starting to see why people didn't like the Jedi when they pulled shit like this.
Also I feel bad for leering at pre age up Ahsoka
89% of Americans will answer to this question wrong.
Why give away the surprise when you can bait people to watch? I think it would be neat to think she's leia the whole time till the wig comes off and the real Leia shows up near the end.
I'm surprised no one has mentioned the fact that the Republic ships Leia comes down in are the Hammerhead class Republic cruisers from Knights of The Old Republic
>disclaimer at the back of "Everything you need to know" saying the information is not canon
You fucking kidding me? I just fucking bought this.
I ordered it online. It was part of the "Journey to TFA" series, so I assumed it was canon.
But it just seems to be a kid-friendly version of the Ultimate Star Wars guide I already have, with non-canon information sprinkled everywhere.
What a waste of money.
Please screenshot this or take a picture of this disclaimer for all to see.
I know man, I made that guide. Guess it's time to make an update. How embarrassing.
>In 2014, Lucasfilm reclassified what is considered canon in the Star Wars universe. Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need To Know draws mostly upon information from the Expanded Universe that Lucasfilm now considered to be "Legends".
You mean the "Some of these stats were based on Legends material" thing? Big deal. Ultimate Star Wars drew from a lot of Legends material too, even to where some of it isn't applicable anymore (Like how it said Ackbar designed the B-Wings).
>I feel like I'm not living up to everyone's expectations. I'm the heir of Darth Vader and a child of royalty, but I'm not as powerful as I should be...
>But you are such a strong Jedi, Ben! When I grow up, I want to be just like you!
I enjoyed it minus the ending of ME3, which depending on readiness and past decisions should have made the final battle on a different planet depending on those factors. I love the aliens and the worldbuilding in it. Anyway, back to star wars
Ultimate Star Wars has some outdated information yeah, that's just how guide books work. But it was still intended to be Canon, whereas the disclaimer in AEYNTK seems to be pretty clear that the information is not considered Canon.
>>In 2014, Lucasfilm reclassified what is considered canon in the Star Wars universe. Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need To Know draws mostly upon information from the Expanded Universe that Lucasfilm now considered to be "Legends".
I can confirm, it says that on my copy as well
It fascinates me how many people miss how much of a motive that is for him. His grandfather was literally one heartbeat away from ruling the galaxy and his uncle fucked that all up. I'd feel cheated, too.
KYLO DID NOTHING WRONG
(Kylo did everything wrong)
I just think it's a more forward "This might be subject to change" thing versus Ultimate. There isn't really that many super egregious conflicts and it's mostly focused around the shows and movies with references to the old Ewok material in anything pertaining to Endor same as Ultimate is.
That's basically the Wook's take on the book too.
There's a few very strange and out of place EU references that I noticed.
Like Sheev killing and cloning the Death Star designer, which is odd considering, well, the Geonosians are responsible for the Death Stars construction now.
I feel like they just got all their information from Wookiepedia, and put that disclaimer at the end for this reason.
Rattataki aren't canon anymore. Talzin, Asajj Ventress, and the Nightsisters are a race called the Dathomiri. Darth Maul is a Zabrak like the rest of the Nightbrothers on Dathomir, but they only live on Dathomir, they are not the same race as the Dathomiri.
>I feel like they just got all their information from Wookiepedia, and put that disclaimer at the end for this reason.
So basically, it's this

Rogue One is probably gonna retcon all that
The one thing I really need to see in VIII is Kylo's backstory. No matter if they are going to make him a hero or the ultimate villain, I think his character has way too much potential to just waste him by not explaining what exactly happened back then.
I still wonder how that all worked.
Yeah, I suspect there will be an explanation about the Geonosians getting retired somewhere down the line, especially considering Aphra explaining in the comics that the planet was sterilized.
>mfw Ian McDiarmid could reprise his role in Rogue One
The planet Rattatak itself is though.
Except Sheev had Geonosis purged. As far as we know, all the Geonosians did was design the thing.
Rumor going round with Rogue One is that Mads Mikkelsen's the Imperial engineer that perfected the design for the final construction and has gotten all Oppenheimer remorseful over it.
Wait, Shadows of the Empire isn't canon anymore?!
