Watching Star Wars Despecialized.
Why is Luke's uncle Owen dressed like a Jedi?
He was part of an illegal protest group that staged various forms of silent protest against the Empire. In this case, of the extermination of the Jedi, wearing the robes to express solidarity
Watching Star Wars Despecialized.
Why did the rebellion use cardboard soldiers?
The better question is why is Yoda dressed like a Tattooinian moisture farmer?
Does he wear something else in the special editions? I only have the despecialized versions of the ot but i always remember him wearing those robes and I grew up with the early 2000s VHS box set.
This is like saying only baseball players are allowed to wear baseball cap and why would anyone else ever be wearing it.
Or like saying only ranchers wear jeans and why would someone be wearing jeans if they weren't a rancher
Go back in time and tell Marquand
Because all of the OT Jedi, including Anakin, wore those robes
why is anakin's force ghost wearing tattooine moisture farmer clothes? just accept that in the star wars universe jedi and tattooine moisture farmers both wear similar clothing and go back to reddit
Well, it's actually more like asking why anyone would wear Nazi uniforms in today's day and age? The empire hunted down jedi. So why would random Owen, a guy who wants Luke to stay out of the war, who derided his brother for joining, dress in the full Jedi regalia and potentially oust himself as a supporter of a cause he doesn't believe in, that could get him killed? Why would he do that?
This is the correct answer
Jesus christ the autism on this board is unbelievable. The prequels had many problems but the robes are close to the dumbest fucking things you could decide to bitch about
Yes they do. If you watch the prequels, the Jedi are revealed to wear the same robes Obi Wan wears.
Now, obviously this is just a massive oversight on Lucas's part. But to anyone born in this generation who would potentially see these movies in order, I could understand these questions being asked.
The prequels don't shy away from the fact that the farmers on Tatooine wear clothing similar to the Jedi.
But notice that the farmers' clothing is of an obviously inferior quality, so much so that the comparative coarseness of the fabric is immediately visible at a glance.
The robe is a good example of their hypocrisy, too: fake asceticism. They have few and meager possessions, but they live in a huge palace just down the road from the Senate building and hobnob with elites. They are peacekeepers who get sent on shakedown missions and lead armies. They are mystics who explain their religion in terms of its biological evidence. The robes are the visual indication of their unjustified belief that they are detached from the world.
What the fuck? A little dark, isn't it?
It seems that Star Wars didn't necessarily start as a movie made FOR children. It seems that it was marketed toward children after it was realized that the movies could be used to sell toys and generate more money.
This movie seems like one that is possibly appropriate for children rather than meant for children. It also seems more mature and less ADHD somehow.
Considering Fox gave away the toy rights to Lucas instead of some one time fee I guess no one but Lucas saw the potential at least. Considering the company Lucas kept I hardly think he thought of it as a kids movie (although coppola thought they story was bullshit)
Possibly. It seems less puerile than the prequels or TFA, to me. More mature somehow.
Why didn't these two recognize each other here?
It's a tunic, it's not a Jedi uniform, it's just the normal clothes, basically t-shirt + jeans of their world
Star Wars = space fantasy so they wear historical clothes like tunics
I think they were originally going to make the jedi wear a black uniform like Luke, but then they fucked it up in the prequels and had them wear the ordinary tunics
Should've been what real Jedi wear. Really makes him stand out as something totally different to the ragtag rebels he fought with.
Move to a first world country.
I have a smart phone and a tablet. But I am not watching a movie on a screen smaller than 19 inches. Ergo, I will not watch a movie on a tablet, laptop, or phone. I have a desktop or a TV for watching movies.
You're right, 17 GB is a lot on a tablet, though.
How is space a problem in 2016? I bought this computer for 369 dollars from Best Buy in 2013. It's got 8 GB RAM, 1 TB internal hard drive. At the same time, I have a 2 TB external. Neither drive is full. How is space or internet speed a problem for people still?
If you had several $1,000 bills, would you buy the movie for $17?
It looks okay. Looks great, actually. I was expecting the whole thing to have that low quality grain that gave it its old time charm like in the 70s.
>All wings report in!
I love this 20 second sequence.
>watching anything less than the full Blu-ray
dont even worry about that shit. 17gb of audio, literally. the movie with the english track alone would be like a gig and a half. but the autismo who did this trash added in every fucking audio track he could find. the movie itself is just the original fucking movie with the contrast turned up
That's not really the argument.
The robes are incredibly similar to the Jedi robes.
Obviously, Lucas dressed Obi Wan in robes because everyone on Tatooine wore robes.
Then, he decided to have all Jedi wear the same robes Obi Wan did in the prequels. This is why the robes are so similar.
Why is this a problem? Because without knowing that, it DOES look like the moisture farmers dress like Jedi.
That sequence was actually filmed in the west/southwest of Ireland. I was impressed with the landscapes in the coda, so I made a point of getting that figured out shortly after my screening (other more engaged anons were ahead of me and knew right away). However, it is true that parts (units maybe) were filmed in both Iceland and Ireland, so I made sure to get that clarified where the final sequence is concerned.
I assume that the Iceland scenes were the super-duper death-planet scenes, but as they didn't impress me, I didn't bother to see about those.
Finally, to answer your and the OP... is there some galactic law against wearing robes or impersonating Jedi?
Cliegg, Owen, Beru, and Anakin are all dressed in tans and browns because they come from Tatooine. Anakin's robes are made of a finer weave because he abandoned the coarseness of Tatooine for the Jedi Temple's sterilized imitation of it. Padme sticks out from the rest because she comes from a water world and dresses in blue. (Beru wears blue underneath her tan clothes in Episode II, and finally transitions to a predominantly blue outfit in Episodes III and IV, taking Padme's place as the maternal advocate for the young hero's soul.)
Because god damn George didn't change what Jedis wear in EP1 instead of fucking normal fucking clothes. For being a creepy religious monk cult they should have had dressed differently than people on a sand planet.
>Secretly Ben turns to the darkside because he hates his dad
>he's as awful at it as he as at being a regular jedi so snork trains him wrong for shits and giggles
>gets him to smuggle the real sith apprentices to the jedi academy so they can slaughter everyone
Rey wasn't good, Kylo was just super shit.
They do. See >>64518551
Also there was concept art showing they were considering not having them wear robes at all, but they changed because the public expected them to. Aayla Secura and Anakin in Ep 3 do not wear robes.
From the Wookiepedia page:
>Ponda Baba was a fearsome, ill-tempered thug who enjoyed bullying those whom he considered to be an easy target.
Why was he such a dick? He just was.
You guys are so retarded. His clothes are literally normal jedi gear in black. just like mauls.
And Anakins force ghost wears the ben kenobi gear too.
Did you seriously expect something different to be jedi wardrobe?
After the fall of the Old Republic, fabric became incredibly scarce in the whole galaxy.
Owen had to wear the used robes of an old jedi who fell to his death in a treason related accident.
Lando had to wear Han's old rags.
