Something like this with Vader and Tarkin, still using the Pocket Sand! line.
>Mouse droids performed simple tasks aboard starships and in military and corporate facilities. They beeped to themselves as they performed small repairs, delivered messages and guided visitors. occasionally exploding into panicked squeals when confused or frightened
I'd read the shit out of the Tarkin monologues.
I know that would basically just be the tarkin novel but holy shit I'm a sucker for "in-universe" style books, have those sith and jedi and bounty hunter and imperial handbooks with the snappy bants in the margins, love 'em.
>we will never see Ahsoka as a cool biker doing sick tricks and spins.
Fuck. Shit. Ass.
So... When do you think Disney is going to stop milking the "stories set right before, in and after the OT" train? Because I'm not going to lie, that was a nice refreshing breather from all the convoluted EU bullshit that was happening distantly post-ROTJ (what with the praying mantis orgies and the like) and distantly pre-TPM (what with 10,000 years of internecine Sith bullshit), but having every single piece of new media use that one aesthetic and story direction is getting old pretty fast.
Somehow I'm more hyped for this than anything else SW coming out.
Jedi philosophy is absolutely fucked at this point. First they're presented as a fraternal order of wizard knights in ANH, then they're this kung fu zen peaceful warrior thing in ESB and ROTJ, and then they're this cult-y enclave of priests in the prequels. They're only consistent in their inconsistency.
I asked last thread and didn't get much of an answer, but as somebody who didn't read the Yuuzan Vong stories, what makes them so bad that a lot of people are okay with the old EU being scrapped if it meant they were gone too?
Uh-uh, you can look but you can't touch!
So I'm a few days late, but what apparently one of these might be our new Han Solo
With Franco, Teller, Elgort and Lerman (pic related) as the frontrunners.
What do you guys think?
And yet it's more modest compared to how female Twi'leks usually dress.
I would buy this. I really would.
Wait 'till Episode VIII, then we'll get Resistance/FO shenanigans up the ass.
I still need to get the latter two, myself. Loved the shit out of the first two.
What would happen if Tarkin's wife was ever re-canonized?
Bounty Hunter's is fun, Dengar, Bossk, and Greedo shitpost at each other in the margins while Boba is an edgemeister, there's lots of talk of juicy tech and being a hunter sounds pretty comfy, you get decent cuts and you can get a lot of work-related tools from the guild itself. There's also a death watch propaganda pamphlet in it.
Empire is kinda dry, there's a lot of pages that are literally just battle formation make-ups, but there's some interesting stuff like info on Stormtrooper kits, the actual 'normal' military, and the inner workings stuff like Imperial Intelligence and their propaganda wing. There's also a full page portrait of Sheev right at the start of the book and the implication that propaganda paints Vader as almost Captain America-esque so there's that.
The last two at least look vaguely similar to Ford. Would've preferred Anthony Ingruber though.
>What's it about
Han Solo when he was a young man, I presume.
> what time period?
Probably between the Clone Wars conflict and during the Imperial Rise.
I'm just basing this on the age of the actors though, so it might change once new info is out.
The dude who linked you to Tyranids was giving you a hint.
The Yuuzhan Vong were basically Tyranids combined with various Star Trek villains like The Borg, and then given a biological theme.
Now, in theory, that sounds like it could work.
The way it ended up being handled though was a huge clustercuck that ended up doing more harm than good to the EU. The Vong were "le edgy" BDSM zealots from outside the galaxy. One of the first things they do is kill Chewbacca by quite literally throwing a moon on him. They're unstoppable and unbeatable for no real reason and then eventually suddenly start becoming beatable.
Plus, they introduced the stupid retcon that Palaptine wasn't building the Empire because it's the goal of the Sith, but rather because he somehow magically learned about the Vong and was arming the galaxy for them. The Death Stars weren't to rule the galaxy with fear, they were to combat the Vong.
train your "discipline" and "endurance"
>The Death Stars weren't to rule the galaxy with fear, they were to combat the Vong.
I'm just imagining a fleet of these things blasting off together.
However, it does make Sheev look even more like a supreme schemer so I guess there's one bonus point for that.

The reason I linked nids is because what you described there is literally 40k's metaplot.
Ah, thanks. Yeah, I wouldn't have been able to make the tyranid connection. So the whole thing was basically just implemented pretty badly, while the base ideas were all right? 'Cause they themselves don't exactly sound too bad.
>Palaptine wasn't building the Empire because it's the goal of the Sith
I'm pretty sure that wasn't the goal of the Sith anyway, just his goal. I'm actually pretty sure that the Sith didn't have any idea what to do once they've killed the Jedi anyway.
With a tweaked design and better writers(and perhaps making them smaller scale) they could work.
In fact, Filoni was planning g on doing an "X-Files" style Episode with the Vong in TCW, but it never got past early concepts due to the series being cancelled.
"Once more the Sith will rule the galaxy."
It was their goal. Defeat the Jedi and take over the galaxy.
Yep its true.
Another reason the Vong were shit in the EU.
>"Once more the Sith will rule the galaxy."
>It was their goal. Defeat the Jedi and take over the galaxy.
So Sheev says. The fuck does he know what one Sith said 1000 years ago? Imagine playing Chinese Whispers for so long.
That's kind of the reasons why he started his descent to the dark side. Anakin felt like he should have been a master, and the Council did not agree. They give him a Padawan to train, and she leaves the Order, something he himself was unable to do.
nothing at all states barriss was a knight.
that's beside the point, most of the people fighting the war were jedi knights. the reason anakin was with masters all the time was because he was favored by the council and especially obi-wan and they allowed him to get away with a bunch of things.
All you people claiming Ahsoka dies and all the Rebels cast too are so completely wrong. I'm from MSW and just back from a highly dangerous infiltration mission at Lucasfilm where I interrogated
Dave Filoni's hatfor secrets. THIS is the 100% accurate Rebels endgame. Spoilers ahead, so BEWARE! The very last episode is a Weisman inspired time skip to right before the events of ANH. The scene opens on Coruscant during Empire Day celebrations when something very strange happens during the parade...
These events provide a timely distraction, tying up Imperial Forces over the capital so Rogue One can successfully steal the Death Star plans. Raw test footage below:
*The Ghost is obviously disguised as a parade float
*Zeb is riding atop the float dressed in what is basically the Slave Leia outfit. Disney doesn't care as long as it's a dude wearing it.
*Kallus is confirmed to survive the show only to be fragged by his own troops at the Battle of Endor
*Chopper absconds with the Betty Droid fluffer serving in Sheev's personal harem, current whereabouts unknown
*Twenty year old Ezra rides atop the revealed Ghost, tells Hera to drive him closer to the marching AT-ATs so he can stab them with his sword
Remember this is an MSW exclusive! MSW: Correct 100% of the time 78% of the time!
Don't see why you felt the need to sperg like a neckbeard then. If you actually had a brain and reading comprehension, you'd notice I said that I'd wished they'd gone for Ingruber.
>implying I'm mad
>implying Ingruber is a meme actor
Can we discuss this book and what the fuck was going through Disney's mind when they had it commissioned?
>5 gay characters (but totally not pushing an agenda)
>EJECTOR SEAT LOL
>Annoying so randumb robot character
>Author literally got the job because he asked for it on twitter
>2 more of them in the works
This is in all honesty the only Star Wars content I have experienced that feels like genuine fan fiction. It by no means feels like an officially published work.
I'm very ashamed of asking this. Does anyone else has the link to that erotic fanfiction where the Seventh Sister kidnaps Ezra and gives him a handjob and a blowjob?
The majority of them were mentioned by "this woman and her wife" and ignored past that. Only Sinjir, and possibly Nora's sister(?) plus her wife are the only ones to have characterization past "lolgay"
Woah, thanks anon. It's time for me to leave for a few minutes.
>Don't see why you felt the need to sperg like a neckbeard then. If you actually had a brain and reading comprehension, you'd notice I said that I'd wished they'd gone for Ingruber.
Not all anon is the same anon.
It is possible though, it's something worth asking Pablo, Luminara was her master and she was nowhere to be found during the arc, and we never got her reaction to Barris turning against the Jedi, it can lead to some people to think that Barris wasn't a padawan anymore
Legends Empire is very xenophobic and hates aliens in any ranks. This carries down to the regular officers hating seeing other aliens. This is something people still haven't let go of after the canon shift.
Basically a zebrak asked him out but when he said he didn't go "that way" she accused him of racism. Then he said that he was gay.
I like to think he only said that so she wouldn't be upset, but he was actually racist.
>the fuck is with TCW and all all these earth accents anyway?
Well, we obviously have no idea what a real alien's voice sounds like, so in fiction we have the choice between presenting them as speaking in subtitled gibberish (or occasionally unsubtitled gibberish), or just having them speak with an accent to indicate they're "foreign". You could try to create a whole new, fully formed language for them, but that's a lot of time and energy and unless you're an absolute language nerd like Professor Tolkien, you're probably not going to spend it on that.
You can have a character that has no arc. She doesn't have much of an arc, but we do see her soften a bit as the trilogy goes. She's almost all-business in ANH, but starts letting her guard down as the trilogy progresses.
It's called a "Static Character". Many times a necessity, since you can't give every single character in your story a dynamic arc. Star Wars contains its development to Luke, Han, and Vader, and to a lesser extent Lando, while Chewier, Leia, the droids, the Emperor, Tarkin, Jabba, Obiwan, Yoda, and all the background characters maintain themselves as a constant for them to develop against.
Yes, he is the greatest character ever to appear in Star Wars. Watch him for two minutes and you'll immediately want his barbed cock inside you. I'm not joking, he's that amazing.
He's fun if you like the big brute types. He's a big cat, and he's getting his own spotlight soon. Plays well off other characters though his skills are pure fighting so that can get boring. Like a fighter in a DnD session.
Bumbling comedy relief moron disguised as the brutish fighter of the group. Not particularly funny and has little real development. That said, a far better character than Hera and Sabine.
Will everyone on the Ghost but Kanan and Ezra finally fucking die?
how soon can I expect a mega link for the next episode?
After all the buzz around Selma I thought "oh Kallus probably isn't going to last much longer, he won't want to be tied down to this show" but nope, out of all of the major season 1 villains Kallus is strangely the one that stuck around.
Must be horrible to only live on the internet pal
It's great actually because nothing can wrong when you've got digital dancing
Well you see if the sexuality is front and center it's there only character trait and they're a hollow stereotype.
If it isn't the focus then there was no point in mentioning it and it's pointless pandering.
I just a want a strong, gay Sith Lord role model.
No, because they were the corruption in the Senate that they were supposedly seceding from. Bunch of dumb corporations were leading their movement and making a mockery of the systems that genuinely wanted a better way.
>Was the CIS justified in opposing the Republic?
Already implied in Aftermath that he's alive. Some Jawas have his armor in a box and try to sell it. Some unnamed character ends up taking it and declares himself the law on Tatooine. But those Jawas didn't likely take it off Boba's body, he probably dumped it in the desert because of the acid damage.
Yeah, people would absolutely lose their minds if he were in it. Although, he'd be extremely old by then if he were still alive. I could totally see him being in Rogue One though.
If only Grievous had somebody within the organization to keep him on the honorable path, to show him the way! He'd be a shining example of leadership in the Confederacy. Maybe.
What's the closest thing to Top Gun in Star Wars, canon or otherwise?
I remember a long time ago (back during the first season of TCW I think) there used to be mini comics that would get put up on the Star Wars website and there was one about Grievous that was amazing and quite sad. He was remembering his past life as a warlord and lamenting that he'd never lead anything other than shitty battle droids ever again. I wish I had it or could find it again.
I'd want to read that, actually. If he doesn't die by the end of the book, at least.
That's sounds hot. But disgusting at the same time.
>You probably don't know about ducks 12in corckscrew penis
>Or Slug's mega aphrodesiac javelins
Is it gay to want that in me? Because I want that in me.
But naw seriously hope you like them. If I remember right the old (now non-canon) book of species had a little in-character blurb in each entry (usually involving the shapeshifting supporting protagonist of Star Wars Goosebumps. No really) if you want something else to scratch that itch too.
>Famed Kaleesh bounty hunter
>Known for being ruthless and savage
>Seems to personally have a vendetta against the Jedi and has been the raisin why Luke has been hopping around the galaxy
>Wears a slightly charred bone mask >Doesn't know that Obi-Wan is dead and still searches for him to avenge his fallen relative
>Vader and the Inquisitors face the rebels on Malachor, spawning irreversible consequences.
Great Scourge of Malachor infodrop incoming!
I'd actually be perfectly happy if they decide that Grievous somehow didn't actually die while battling Kenobi, and through one way or another, he was able to get back to Kalee to live his life in peace. Or something.
>body's subsystems went into standby, keeping him alive long enough to crawl into his ship, crashland on Kalee, and let his former tribesman watch as the demigod breathes his last
fuck now I made myself sad
>“I am Darth Marr,” he revealed. “And these are the recorded memories of my life. My mantras and my teachings. Why have you accessed it?”
>“Darth Marr? Lord of the Sphere of Defense of Vitiate’s Empire? Who stood against the treacherous Emperor himself?” Such historical facts were in the archives, though it was not readily accessible to the masses. As it shouldn’t be.
>There will never be more Battle Droids
Remember seeing some in the Darth Vader comic. Which speaking of I thought was really well written and connected Darth Vader and Anakin together.
Prequels and Original Trilogy make them sound like two different characters.
I really liked how Vader had an 'end of Episode III' moment in the comics
when he learns he had a son, and his son just wrekt the Death Star.Even heard this musical score in my head as I read those panels (skip to 1:43):
>Ezra and the gang have to go to Kaleesh for something or some other I really don't care for the Ghost crew
>Rebels base or something, I don't know
>Fuel. Let's go with that
>Kanan warns Ezra that the Kaleesh are extremely hostile and have been known to attack anyone or anything that has "a glowing sword"
>Ezra asks why
>Kanan tells him the story of General Greivous, with ominous general music in the background
>He specifically tells Ezra to not bring his saber at any cost, and doesn't bring his as well
>Kalesh is neutral territory, and wants no part of the Empire
>They land, to an already hostile welcome
>Something something meeting with the Kaleesh overlord
>Kanan seems to be shocked/frieghtened
>The Kaleesh overlord is wearing Greivous' mask
Cut to some talks, Leia's there or something, about the Kaleesh joining the Rebel alliance, blah blah blah something happens, Ezra brought his lightsaber, the Kaleesh go into a frenzy
The ghost crew tries to escape but the ship gets blown up (Not The Ghost) and now they're stranded on Kalesh
And the rest of the arc is trying to contact the Rebel alliance while the entire arc is the biggest, brutal manhunt that is basically Predator: Star Wars (Lots of the entourage gets killed)
Then jump to the end, they eventually get saved by the Rebel fleet but all that commotion got the attention of the Empire. They show up, but the Rebels are gone
Vader goes planetside and meets with the Kaleesh warlord. He seems to stand intimidatingly but he seems fazed. Multiple voice clips can be heard in the background from The Clone Wars, noticeably of Greivous
Something happens, yada yada, talks of an alliance, they still are set with defiance, Vader says defying the Empire will be his undoing, the Kaleesh overlord says
"There was once one of us that killed many of your kind. What's to say we all do not know how?"
Vader leaves, clearly fuming. End of arc
Boom, Kalesh arc
I like it. Any Kaleesh PoV characters?
Are there any sort of "recreational" droids? Like droids with personality that don't actually serve a specific function? Like, one that you could just chill with?
The closest I can think of them getting to that are Protocal Droids, and Luxury droids, but even those serve a specific purpose.
>Any Kaleesh PoV characters?
What do you mean by POV? Because I'm thinking of a POV shot of a Kaleesh
hunting one of the entourages in the jungles with other Kaleesh
Course, it'd cut to the Ghost crew and Leia while there's a blood-curdling cry in the background because we can't show killing and skinning on a childrens show
I'm pretty sure there are sexbots. Otherwise, you just have to let your droid go long enough without memory wipes so they develop quirks and personality traits like C-3PO and R2-D2.
Sheev contacts Vader ahead of time and says that one day they might have need of the warrior race
Vader, who really wants to just kill the warlord since the mask reminds him of who he once was
and reminds him of Obi-Wan, obliges. Thus why he left
>Sidon shows up and helps the rebels which is how he gets his helmet
>Seems to die, but comes out fine
Oh, as in from the prospective of the Kaleesh regarding the entire matter?
Sure, why not.
It'd be implied that they're related to Greivous and it's them that should be the warlord and not the current ruler And why not, they help the Ghost crew escape the Kaleesh in exchange for them helping him get the mask he rightfully deserves But after the challenge of combat, he banishes them from Kalesh and if they were to return he wouldn't be as "nice" as he was
This just in, a leaked image of ahsoka being impaled by Vader from the guys at MSW :/
>New Dark Warrior sits in his room, talking to the moderately preserved head of Dooku
>"Teach me the strength of the dark grandfather... and I will finish what you... oh wow you're starting to get stinky again, let me spray some more formaldehyde on you, don't go anywhere grandpa"
Aftermath I actually think would have been fantastic if it was just a compilation of the interludes. A sort of short story book.
Hopefully the sequel is more like that.
More like the other way around. Dooku's head is talking to his grandchild telling them they're a disgrace until they finish what he started.
He then goes back to playing his War game with cyber Tarkin.
>"Oh, how many Jedi did you kill boy? None? I'm shocked, absolutely shocked, surely your long hair and black fingernails and constant pout should make you a magnificent Jedi hunter, I'm so surprised that your aimless lightsaber swinging has failed to kill a single Jedi. No, it's fine, you don't need to give me excuses, I'm just so terribly shocked that your superb crying techniques have yielded no results! Really now. Stop wasting my time and don't come back until you've at least made a Jedi moderately upset you little wanker."
What are the chances that we've already seen the person that is piloting the remaining Y-Wing?
>Handsome without being flashy
>humble, zero grandstanding
>survived and was instrumental in both Death Star battles as well as Hoth
Well in the old EU it was Keyan Farlander. No reason it can't be for the future too since it was one of those things which doesn't affect the movies. Just a name for an ace pilot.
1 mildly amusing character who happened to be gay, even if he was a bit of a british stereotypical pouf, 4 characters who exist to say HELLO I AM GAY GOOODBYE NOW.
The book is shit for other reasons.
I liked the interludes and Rae Sloane! Rae wasn't as good as she was in A New Dawn, but we've got a pretty neat new Pellaeon on our hands here.
Too bad about, you know, the whole rest of the book.
FUCK YOU AND YOUR COLD BULLSHIT YOU FUCKING FUCK GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE
I CAN'T DEAL WITH THIS SHIT GODDAMN THIS IS JUST
B-but KOTOR is going to be recanonized! That one leaker anon confirmed the second half of Rebels would be about Revan!
QUICK WHAT IS THE BEST STAR WARS RELATED PODCAST.
>fraternal order of wizard knights in ANH, then they're this kung fu zen peaceful warrior thing in ESB and ROTJ, and then they're this cult-y enclave of priests in the prequels
But none of these are inconsistent with each other.
They're still zen peaceful warriors in the prequels too.
Even before the war happened, Mace Windu's like "we're keepers of the peace, not soldiers", and after Geonosis Yoda insists that it was not a victory. The Jedi were dragged into the Republic's war, because they were sworn to defend the Republic.
And they're still an order of wizard knights. The Jedi Order is not the sort of religion that has a laity. Exclusivity is part of the deal, and as a knight, you have to swear oaths that you're not going to be able to break lightly, whether you're a Jedi knight or a real-world medieval knight.
It seems cult-y because we live in an era where only cults still do this kind of thing. We haven't had real knights for centuries, and the Western world has been fairly lax about religion for a very long time. We don't really have anything to compare it to anymore.
I feel the need to point out that Lucas was going through a bitter divorce during the production of ROTJ.
>She's a strong female character in that non-retarded way
I can't tell if you're being serious right now. Leia's the weakest and most boring character in the trilogy. Her entire role consists of standing around being the only woman. There isn't a single thing about her that's strong and I refuse to believe anyone is retarded enough to think otherwise.
the divorce is also the reason for the heavy changes to ANH i the special edition, since his wife edited it along with 2 other guys and he wanted to piss her off by fucking with her edit.
bet she was the one who edited the original Han/Greedo scene
PILOT POWER RANKINGS
1. Poe Dameron
2. Anakin Skywalker
4. Wedge Antilles
5. Han Solo
6. Luke Skywalker
Fucking Asians and their creepy cosplays.
You list Poe above Anakin, don't list Lando at all, have Rey too high, Luke too low, and you remember Wedge but call me EU trash?
Hey guys. I stopped watching Rebels after the first season because honestly the casting was ass and Ahsoka looked like shit, but now that Rebels is putting old lore like Malachor 5, should I start watching again?
>Rey over Wedge
So far all she fucking did was some fancy manuvers with the Falcon...
>6. Hardcase, Jesse, Fives
You. I like you.
Pablo confirmed that most of the stuff on the leaked Rebels episode titles/summaries is completely off. Apparently four of the episode titles are accurate (likely the ones that also appeared on an earlier report), the rest are all wrong and he says the summaries have an even lower accuracy ratio.
So basically, don't trust the leak that talks about Malachor.
Yes. Which only confirms that there's a planet of that name, nothing else from Legends.
Anything from Legends appearing in the new canon only recanonizes exactly what was shown, nothing more.
Yeah, but there's a huge leap between "Malachor was referenced in the visual dictionary" and "MALACHOR CONFIRMED TO BE SUPER IMPORTANT IN REBELS AND KOTOR WILL NOW BE COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY RECANONIZED FOR ALL TIME"
>KOTOR WILL NOW BE COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY RECANONIZED FOR ALL TIME
There's some people that are just going to keep deluding themselves about this. No matter what, every minor reference to it is always going to mean full unabridged recanonization is right around the corner. They love KOTOR so much that they just can't let it go and accept that it's never going to be 100% canon.
I almost feel bad for them.
>3 hours of Boba Fett glued to a wall trying to escape.
>A riveting tale of danger and survival in the face of impossible odds!
Only thing I really want to see 100% recanonized is Shadows of the Empire.
hey guys, were there any explanations that R2-D2 doesn't remember Obi and Yoda in Epi 4 and 5?
I think as far as KOTOR recanonization goes, I'm pretty sure the furthest they will go with it is mention that Darth Revan was a Sith Lord that existed and maybe use his original design for a statue or something.
The entirety of that Old Republic story arc will probably never be canon.
This, plus it's always been a running thing in SW that the longer droids go without memory wipes, the stranger and more independent they act.
R2 was always meant to be the most special astromech of them all, if not a sentient droid in its own right.
>That was just C-3PO. Organa states that the protocol droid's memory be wiped probably because C-3PO is easier to understand.
It's because Threepio is talkative and would've revealed the twins.
I do hope they at least made a backup of his memories to restore one day
No it doesn't? It says that he had so many memories and files that he had to go into a sort of coma to organize and categorize everything.
Well, Chris Avellone seems to recognise the Trayvus academy from the Mid-season trailer:
You'd figure if anyone would spot it, it would be him, right?
What bit was supposed to look like the Trayus academy?
I was saying have Yoda and R2 met before that. Otherwise how would he recognise Yoda on Dagobah if they've never met.
just started reading dark disciple and i'm having a hard time imagining ventress with
any drawfags wanna help me out?
Just found this in my old DVD collection and remember my uncle giving it to me as a kid.
Don't even remember if I liked it or not but fuck it. I'm gonna watch both movies now. I remember seeing a horse in one of these movies and thinking it's very un-star wars.
Biggest question I have is why is the ESB to ROTJ era so blank in terms of marketing?
They've got Rebels covering before ANH. They've got part of the "Journey to the Force Awakens" books/comics covering both the time between ROTJ and TFA, and ANH through ESB.
ESB to ROTJ has literally nothing there.
I am starting to wonder if they are still having an internal debate over whether or not "Shadows of the Empire" is technically part of the new canon or not post EU wipe, seeing as how just like Clone Wars tv series, it was something Lucas had a big hand in and pushed hard the marketing as hard as he would for a main movies merchandising. (Posters, comics, books, artbooks, ect).
Hell, TFA was originally going to be called "Shadow of the Empire".
I have that on DVD as well. Loved the first one as a kid, and honestly it's still a decent adventure. Lots of cool monsters and I liked the kids. The second one sucks though. And is wildly out of place in Star Wars, feels like LotR or something (there's a witch that turns into a raven, a castle, aliens that look and act like orcs, and a dragon. Oh and Wilford Brimley living like a hermit with a retarded creature that can run like Sonic and looks like a brain damaged rabbit)
Not a chance. Why? Because Star Wars is first and foremost aimed at kids. Making games, books, comics, etc that are older than they are canon is not logical. If you grew up with it and it isn't the films, it's never coming back. Plain and simple.
>luke did i ever tell you about dagobah? i went there while exploring the origins of the force with your teacher, yoda who you met there as well! he was a good friend
>Biggest question I have is why is the ESB to ROTJ era so blank in terms of marketing?
Pablo said they're taking things slowly.
Right now the focus is mostly on ANH-ESB, but when they move on, there's a good chance ANH-ESB stuff will suddenly become extremely rare. I think it's so they can focus on certain era's at a time and avoid stepping on each other toes. Authors and the LSG can communicate appropriately to keep everything connected.
Also works well with marketing, if all the books and comics and shit are directly related because we'll be more interested in buying all the new shit to get the "full story."
For example, all those Journey to TFA books, or the Star Wars/Vader comics.
So yeah, takin' it slowly.
As much as I love SOTE, it also has no reason to be recanonized. It did its job as a big multimedia push to continue the Star Wars hype right before the Special Editions (which themselves also helped drum up hype for Episode 1). The story doesn't really have anything in it that's really crucial or honestly necessary to the saga. I'd love to see large parts of it recanonized, but the story itself is disposable.
Both the book and the audiobook
took me less then a min learn to internet
Result of the Sith superweapon. Creates a Pompeii-like reaction, killing the planets population (I guess)
>Did you guys see Kylo Ren's lightsaber?
>Yeah, that thing looks weird.
>No, it doesn't. It looks awesome. Here, let me go see if I can find it.
>leaves room and walks right back in waving lightsaber
Really digging this whole Bounty Hunter thing.
And the armor is great.
It looks better upgraded with the bandanna for sure, right now its wacky as fuck
Just use the magnet or a VPN.
>Not everyone has the benefit of living in Hamburgerstan where you can torrent whatever you want.
Honestly didn't know North Korea have dial-up.
I live in america and my provider gives no shits when it comes to torrents. Get a better provider instead of shitcast or take what you can get you lazy fuck. Or maybe and this may sound crazy. Use google and find it for yourself
Maybe he's one of those actors voicing in a cartoon for his kids? Happens. Hell, Djimon Hounsou was upset when his kid didn't think there were any black heroes to emulate. So Marvel made him Korath, a minor villain in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Otherwise known as "Who?" guy.
The moral of the story is...Marvel has a twisted sense of humor, I guess?
Anyway this being /co/ people have probably heard the story, are responding to his name with, "Who?" (but just coincidentally because they actually don't know or care who he is), or fuming because there are black superheroes. Not as many but there.
Of course their grievances were exacerbated deliberately by the Sith Lord in the Senate even before he became Chancellor, then they were wooed by promises of freedom and independence and unlimited rice pudding...by a dude who turned out to be another Sith Lord working for the other Sith Lord.
The galaxy. It was made to suffer, that is its lot in life.
The true savior of the Rebellion will not look kindly upon them from his throne of empty fast food boxes in the Netherworld of the Force.
>Obi-Wan: Anakin, you are crazy. Spinning is not flying.
>Anakin: But it's a good trick.
What did he mean by this?
It's a callback to Episode I. That's all.
Good to see your earlier ban expired. It's okay, Sheldon, these are called "jokes." You know, from your Recognizing Common Human Interactions flash cards? Please don't do the creepy robotic sounding chuckle trying to play along. It's okay. We know these things are hard because of your condition.
Now now, a lifetime of supreme schemes has left him only able to obtain an erection while thinking about Ultimate Power. The only dick he's interested in comes with a side order of tatorships.
Mas Amedda is less than convinced, still not certain why Sidious keeps replacing his seasoned Apprentices with younger models. Like that time he abducted Maul as a child. And now this Luke kid? What's up with that? Mas Amedda is smart enough to keep his mouth shut though.
Sheev only gets off to murder and being absolute evil.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT
Battlefront is absolutely fucking broken as fuck.
I've just seen the Falcon exploit firsthand and I am furious.
It was used on me TWICE.
I managed to clutch the game of Fighter Squadron, blowing up the cunt in the falcon on the last second. It showed up on the killfeed, and our team ended with 200 to the opponents 198, but we still were given a defeat. I have never been so furious with this game, I feel like snapping the fucking disk.
How the fuck can Dice be so fucking incompetent.
It's the first actual Star Wars game for like 8 years, I've waited so long, I just wanted to blast Rebels scum.
All I have gotten so far is disappointment.
Of course not, what a silly thing to say. By the way, Kylo Ren wants to see you in his office.
I absolutely adored the Lego games, although I didn't get around to playing 3.
I may pick up Infinity. I bought the Sabine figure because it just looks really cool, have it on my shelf.
You reminded me of pic related
Filoni says that line shouldn't be taken too literally. "Last of the Jedi" could be applied to a small group.
Filoni also says Ahsoka isn't a Jedi.
Tarkin has met Kanan, but believes the Jedi are dead by ANH, and Vader seems to have moved on from Ahsoka, whereas in Rebels he is stalking her.
So in all likeliness, Ahsoka and Kanan will die, but Ezra could in theory survive.
>We know when Yoda died Luke was the only remaining Jedi
only means he's the only one they know of, there's plenty of ways for them to get around this stuff to save their waifu's and husbandos.
You don't think Yoda would be able to feel if there were any other Jedi remaining? You don't think Yoda would've told Luke how to find them when the Empire fell?
Filoni can suck a dick.
>You don't think Yoda would be able to feel if there were any other Jedi rem
Across a galaxy, with the same darkside shroud that's been there since the old Republic fell that prevented them from using the force well?
No. No I do not.
>You don't think Yoda would've told Luke how to find them when the Empire fell?
That literally could have happened though. We know nothing about what Luke did to bring the Jedi back. Before Kylo killed everyone of course.
How would you even become a Jedi at this point? No Order, no Council, no Masters. Nothing official.
So far Yoda has shown up once and given them both his shrug of approval. Here, have a lightsaber crystal kid. Try not to do anything too stupid.
He'll show up again soon but we'll see how it pans out. We're also seeing what looks like some kind of Jedi enclave but they're surely doomed.
This is the Dark Times. It will be nearly ten years before the Emperor finally falls, and it will take Luke to do it. Nobody else can achieve it. Yoda and Obi-Wan know it, they're banking their entire future on Luke since he was a baby. Leia is just their spare "chosen one." Ezra and Kanan? They're just survivors. Some pale remnant of the Light shining in a very vast darkness. Yoda just wants something of the Jedi to survive until Luke can complete his destiny. Some bare teachings, the spirit of the old Order. Or just keeping some kids away from the grip of the Dark Side.
That's the whole point of Rebels. They aren't the New Hope. They aren't the ones to topple the Empire. They're just good people who want to fight back and try to survive in a time when there isn't even a Rebel Alliance yet.
Tarkin knows who Kanan is, who he really is. Thank the Inquisitor for that. I don't think he'd consider a barely trained Padawan turned gunslinger a true Jedi, not even if they managed to fuck up his ship. He was never worried or even impressed with Kanan's skills, only in the possibility that of what he could inspire in others. By the time he talked to Vader about their fire dying out there is *already* a full blown Rebel Alliance. He no longer considers the Jedi a viable factor, not least of all because he's sitting in the Death Star.
Filoni is already on record saying he doesn't consider what YODA said any problems. He sure as hell won't see Tarkin as having any definitive say on the matter. He'll just consider Tarkin's views in the light in which Tarkin expressed them. At the time of ANH there is a very real Rebellion, but Tarkin is putting his faith in the Death Star, his pet project since the founding of the Empire. While he doesn't express his contempt as naked as Motti does Tarkin is nevertheless at the height of his hubris. He'll soon learn how wrong he is, but by then it will be too late.
If there were ten thousand Jedi behind Ahsoka and Kanan Tarkin might care, but by themselves he doesn't give them any credit. He doesn't care about the Force. He doesn't respect it. He never did even when he served in the Republic navy during the Clone Wars.
He views Vader as a friend, competent and capable but then he knows Vader has the entire Empire behind him. Destroying the Rebellion is all Tarkin cares about by ANH, not the Jedi. He truly believes their time is past.
Obi-Wan movie fucking WHEN?
The way he describes it in that Charlie Rose interview is that Star Wars is really a soap opera about family drama.
That's what was important to him, that Skywalker family drama. Everything else window dressing and why wouldn't you try to make the prettiest window dressing you could? Thus maximum special effects and big battles and shit.
