The Rise of Skywalker thread is not bumping anymore so here’s the Star Wars general thread. Separate Star Wars shows, movies, and individual topic threads are still fine though.

Completely agree, my general order is:

Christmas Special
Original trilogy
Ewok movies
Rebels + clone wars
Star Wars: DROIDS!
Kotor 1+2
Prequel trilogy
Auralnauts trilogies (look it up on YouTube)
Other YouTube crap
Disney trilogy

Some of the bad stuff up there is half joking, but I really enjoyed everything sincerely more than the Disney movies. Except maybe Solo, it wasn't that great though just better than the new trilogy which sucked

the Auralnauts Star Wars dubs are so good. I strongly recommend everyone watch them. They turn the Jedi into homeless drug addicts hated by all, and the Empire into a simple corporate business entity just trying to establish a new entertainment attraction and it works seemlessly

Bob Iger just announced that the future of Star Wars will be TV instead of movies. Disney made star wars so bad that it can't make money in film anymore lmfao. That's pretty embarrassing imo. Five years ago they said they'd keep making Star Wars films forever as long as they kept making money. Good job, tards. You couldn't even get through 5 years without losing everyone's interest. Also, I dropped Mandalorian after 2 episodes and have no plans to watch their upcoming shows. I'm trying to become a Trekkie instead, getting into TNG

Because Disney is doing to Star Wars like CBS is doing to Star Trek and that's leveraging those popular franchises on their streaming services of Disney+ and CBS All Access in order to increase subscribers and create new original programming that costs less than making movies would be. Disney is even doing it now with Marvel with WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and Loki coming out on Disney+.

We should also note, however, that CBS only got permission to do that after the 3rd JJ Trek film totally bombed. You only move to tv when you fail at cinema. And tv is cool and all, don't get me wrong. But don't treat it like a promotion.

More is better than mega and tech visually could hold even between the two. Even less in the future, soon with mediation and the force of the mind we could make holographic novels. I partially saw into the future, in 100's of years from now they make holographic inactive movies and novels of various lengths that could last for days. Much more than a 2 hour movie now.

Lol why? Isn't the whole point of that stupid show he's the last mandalorian?

I just watched it recently, had a couple of decent episodes but was overall trash. They could do something good with it but I think it's highly unlikely. Especially with hearing bobba Fett and ashoka in season 2 it's just a cash grab like the rest of Disney's star wars.

I was a star wars fan before Disney's acquisition and am still a fan of all star wars stuff released before the acquisition. Everything after sucks, even re releases and remakes of old stuff because they change it. Fuck Disney when it comes to star wars at least. They killed it.

Right it was which is dissapointing. And I guess that makes sense that "the mandalorian" is not the last one. But why do they call him that? Never seen a unnamed twilek or human called "the twilek" or "the human" by everyone they meet.

Maybe I just have too big an issue with Disney and star wars and the fact the knights of the old republic games died. Or not died as people still love them but were never followed up with anything as good.

Yep. When he was announced i was pretty glad that Disney wasn't making a movie via focus group and was giving it to a guy with a vision, and allowing him to pursue what he wanted. But unfortunately just like Lucas with the prequels, there weren't enough people around to tell him no and reign in some of the dumber ideas.

like i never thought TLJ was a total dumpster fire, I just think it's poorly written. the whole thing is like a first draft that just needs a good edit and revising session.

Look, I love Rian Johnson's work on movies like Brick and others he's done. Favorite film, of many, tbh. I have no gripes with RJ. But, let's be real, JJ & KK did a lazy job with TFA and RJ nuked their entire plot while leaving almost no chance at reconciling in the next film because they gave him a 1/3 one-off chance in a series they both got 2/3 movies in. RJ is based for blatantly fucking the entire sequel trilogy in that sense and even more based for other reasons.

However, from the fucking first scene of the movie it was already infuriatingly difficult to believe half the shit being done right then and there. Fuckin whole intro scene already goes against so many things, like Gravity in space, for one, but hey idk that's just me.

Fuck TLJ. "Fuck TFA"-RJ. FUCK STARWARS-KK & JJ.

They just wanted to ruin the only franchise anyone ever brought up in conversation that stood out and stood above all their dumb ass shit. Disney got they wanted, a blatant political desolation addled with petty trolling of the fangirls & fanboys with it.

Finn & Kylo both said fuck them when it was all said and done, shit was whack even to the cast. All corporate bullshit agendas. Fuck anything that isn't episodes 1-6 and the Animated CloneWars. WE ALMOST GOT TO SAY IT; 456-123-789 but NYUOHHHH... disney had to fuck even that once in a lifetime chance up and splice in fucking Rogue One and the goddam SOLO movie... fucking assholes.

I don't watch them for any sense of art or deep introspection like A Clockwork Orange, I just watch them to watch all the pew pew and feel like I'm in a fantasy world for bit. "Oh Harry Volde-kun's destroying our damn castle-school" cool kill that bastard. Do I really care? No, but hey it was a decent two hours.

The new ones are just so fucking cliche around every fucking corner, I couldn't imagine being a fan of the Star Wars series and then trying to get through the fucking slog the dialogue is in that shit, then throw in the whole racemixing thing being the MAIN FUCKING PLOT POINT and damn, good luck nerds

which makes TFA all the more infuriating because JJ was so intellectually bankrupt that instead of building on what RJ set up he just retconned it all. Rose? background character now. And perhaps the worst thing ever is that they brought back the tired eugenics of having the hero having a powerful family/aristocrats/destiny It's such a played out trope in fantasy. I respect RJ for trying at least to subvert it.

you mean TROS(9) not TFA(7.)

Personally I liked Episode 9 the most and wish they just began there instead. That, on top of some new Baby Yoda to make Palpatine flip his shit and die passing the torch to Snoke would have sufficed a new trilogy leading to where things are at now.

Instead, we get REY THE GREY ending the whole fat shit with a golden saber to signify the Grey jedi as canon which is all they really made happen in all this. Fuck all.

Yep sorry, TROS. Snoke again was a big retcon.

I've read some of the Star Wars books set in the old Empire like Thrawn, Catalyst and Bloodline and as someone with a background in sociology, I really appreciate the detail and the way they make the Empire work in a political economy. it feels obvious, but it really needs re-stating that most people living in Palpatine's original Empire felt no differently about it than people living in the USA feel about their own State. It still had to work, people had to be delegated to get things done. The building of the death star for instance, was a secretive , multi layered plan that took years of logistics and intrigue to build. Yes Palpatine was a space wizard, but he ruled through bureaucracy much more than he did through jedi powers. The Empire didn't come from nowhere. Lucas showed that it was built on the back of the galactic senate. I think there is a line in the original movie about how "the senate won't like this" showing that there was still a vague semblance of democracy (At the planet-elite level) in the Empire.

What JJ Abrams did was to turn Star Wars into a magic story where the First Order seemingly sprout out of nowhere. And then in his next movie does the same thing again by introducing ANOTHER evil empire out of nowhere (quite literally sprouting out of the ground in fully functioning star destroyers). It makes no sense and the only way you can enjoy such a film is to understand that this isn't the same universe as the OT and PT but is a retelling set a 1000 years in the future by an unreliable narrator trying to piece together the story from history.

The "original movie" is of course A New Hope. The part I'm referring to is when the Moff's are talking and one says that the Rebellion might have support in the Senate and then Tarkin says the Senate has been dissolved. So essentially you can see that there was still that last sliver of democracy in name only by the time of ANH.

The overall point is that the original series and the prequels can be viewed as a partial critique of the American Empire because Lucas makes it clear that the Empire was not just one of force and brute power but one that strove for hegemony too.

The new sequel trilogy (that's episodes 7-9) is just a childish take on Empires, replacing political hegemony with "we have a big army and we are evil". That's one of the reasons they suck

At this point most fans barely even mean the OG trilogy when they refer to "the originals" nothing even matters anymore. I get you now, though. of course it is. I am genuinely going to live life pretending 7-9 and everything in between is not even canon. I can't even rewatch those shitfests. I tried after this thread, couldn't stomach the first twenty minutes of any of it.

That and official Baby Yoda merchandise came out after the show premiered, which was intentional to avoid leaking before it aired. Donald Glover was the one that gave Jon Favreau the idea of keeping Baby Yoda a secret:

>Glover told Favreau that people enjoy being surprised, because true surprises had become much less common in the Internet era. As an example, Glover cited the excitement generated by the sudden releases of surprise albums by singer and songwriter Beyoncé. Favreau felt keeping the Child a secret until he was revealed would allow fans to connect with the character and "discover the story as it was unfolding".

And to be fair the character is not even named baby yoda and it's been said that it isn't even yoda. The showrunners clearly enjoy star wars and they have a lot of writers from the clone wars show. That's why I like it. They use a lot of practical effects and it has a story that is easy to follow and fun and like a western mixed with a samurai movie....you know...LIKE STAR WARS

Yeah Baby Yoda is a nickname for The Child since it looks like a baby version of Yoda, though it's not actually Yoda but is from the same species. The Mandolorian is like Star Wars meets Flash Gordon.

Yeah... not even going to bother still because guess what?

Every stupid casual fuck I know who has openly never liked or cared to watch StarWars or anything related to it decides to hop on the Mando train because it's trendy and they like it for all those same reasons. I never perceived StarWars like a Samurai film either but that's just me. I don't need

I don't care if it's like StarWars because it's still not star wars. I never considered the series a Space Western and now I realize that's how most people try to simplify it because a chick at a bar who knew me one time started a conversation based on Firefly being a Space Western and now I realize why. Oh, ya like StarWars right? How about this other Space Western... no. Don't simplify shit.


Keep the Easy to Follow storyline and spoon-feed to a fucking Baby while it cuddles the Baby Yoda merch and further devalues any semblance of established importance to any of the OG main characters and forerunners of the entire series at that point.

Fuck am i mad.

  1. You're really fucking lame to gatekeep starwars
  2. I happen to like Mandolorian as well as my roommate and I grew up with the original trilogy as the only vhs tapes I owned and the only movies I watched. I also read the books.
  3. Star Wars has taken from classic samuari movies and george lucas admits this regularily
  4. You have clearly not even attempted to like or watch it and are just being a turbo virgin star wars mark

It's the most Star Wars thing released since the original series. Seriously. It's more star wars then the prequels. Its way more star wars then the sequel trilogy and its more star wars then any of those shitty solo films. This has to be one of the lamest posts I have ever read.

Mando seems like it made to be easily digestible and easily likable No Shit your roomie and you enjoyed it. Space Sparticus the Netflix Original just doesn't interest me as a fan of StarWars.


Mind telling me How nobody ever sensed this Baby Yoda thing when it takes place between episodes 3-4? You're telling Me to just casually accept all this slipping under Palpatine, Vader, Yoda and Obi-wans Force Senses during that time?

It's actually 14 nominations as Star Wars Resistance got one for Outstanding Children's Program. 11 of The Mandalorian's nominations are in Creative Arts, which is for stuff like cinematography, costume design, sound, makeup, and vice versa. Given the show's scope and budget, I'd say it'll be a favorite to win in their categories.

The only main category nominations it got was for Outstanding Drama (though it has very tough competition), Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance for Taika Waititi as IG-11, and Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama Series for Giancarlo Esposito as Moff Gideon. Both outstanding performances though also tough competition as well.

who the fuck even said they don't watch it because it's "like the sequels" anyways?

could you try actually speaking truth when u talk shit about people or are you that type of scumbag IRL and therefore due to get your teeth knocked out one day anyways?

btw, mando's credits and theme music are garbage, as is a lot of dialogue

thanks for the weird attempt at enlightening us all here on your imaginary theories about the guy but yeah I'm even more driven away from Space Spartacus now than I was before reading your post. thnx

It's not LITERALLY baby Yoda, dude. It's a baby of Yoda's species, because Yoda's species does not have an official name. The series takes place in the immediate aftermath of Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and several years before Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

See, this is why you should actually watch shows like this before just blindly shitting all over them.

Yes, the Disney movies are a pile of disjointed inconsistent trash that were a mistake. The only worthwhile one was Episode VIII because it actually had some new ideas and tried to do new things with the franchise instead of just cheaply rehashing everything that's been done before. So of course the sperglords despised it and the suits essentially retconned it at the expense of there being any semblance of a continuity in the three films. Thanks to JJ's penchant for setting up mystery boxes with no particular payoff in mind.

But The Mandalorian cant help that, theyre only concerned with telling the best standalone serialized Star Wars story that they possibly can. Which is what theyre currently doing. And besides that, it's entirely possible that "Baby Yoda" will wind up getting killed before the time in which Episode VII takes place. Or maybe every Star Wars thing from here on out is just gonna ignore those three films. I'd support that move tbh.

Really hoping season 2 of Mando is good all things considered. Hoping Filoni doesn't just start balking constantly now that he's had this much success under his belt. Working with industry people and all...hope he keeps his cowboy hat down nice and tight and doesnt let hollywood come in and start hollywooding it up in there

The 2D cartoon, yes. The 3D cartoon, no. They share some art styles and the 3D one was created as a direct spin-off from Tartakovsky's 2D cartoon, but they do not exist in the same universe/timeline. They are completely seperate. The 3D Clone Wars show is part of the official mainstream Star Wars Universe canon, it all takes place between Episode II and Episode III. The 2D one exists in a seperate universe. It is now part of what is known as "Star Wars Legends" (which is the umbrella under which everything that is not part of the mainstream Star Wars universe canon falls).

Personally, I don't think it can be said which is better. They're too different. The 2D one has vastly superior action scenes (because if there is one thing that Genndy Tartakovsky absolutely EXCELS at, it's animating movement & action sequences), but the 3D show has vastly superior storytelling & storylines (as it has the benefit of being a full-fledged 30 minute TV show that ran for multiple seasons, while the 2D show was just two collections of like 5 to 10 minute long shorts that were played at various intervals throughout the day on Cartoon Network between shows - the first collection being made to help promote Episode II & the second collection obviously promoting Episode III).

So it's really more of a question of do you want to watch a bunch of high-octaine, beautifully animated action sequences with only a VERY LOOSE, less-than-developed overarching storyline to connect them all...or do you want to watch an incredible TV series that weaves some of the greatest Star Wars stories ever told over the course of several seasons/years, which many people claim "saved the prequels"? (Mind, the first season of the 3D show is a bit slow, as is typical of shows like this - story-driven action cartoons that air on "kid's networks" - but once you work through that and hit season 2, they really pick up the pace and the show truly finds its stride imo.)

Mandolorian really isn't that bad though. I've actually watched the entire series twice and I have not liked a single new star wars film but enjoyed that show. Kind of reminds me of 90s television. I enjoyed that they had some episodes with contained little adventure stories. Music isn't even bad. I don't know if they will be able to be as consistant in season 2 but I hope so. It's enjoyable despite Star Wars being utter trash now. That's a difficult task.

John Williams alongside Orchestras of legendary stature is a hallmark of StarWars and what makes it so highly respected or defended upon. If the show feels like a 90d sitcom and the credits and theme music are something out of the Halo 2 soundtrack... then chances are it doesn't properly hold a candle let alone carry the torch it attempts baring.

Sorry man, it's got big shoes to fill and can only ruin those shoes further as it takes more and steps towards complete desolation of its former self. Going to continue the unsupportive pushback against it and anything else Disney puts out under the StarWars guise as I don't have energy time or attention to offer a company who openly butchered something I loved for the sake of spiting all its fans.
