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 actually enjoyed the Episode 1-3 ones, kind of like Harry Potter movies. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Disney only bought StarWars to trash it because any time movies came up in discussion anywhere it was StarWars that got brought up as the biggest MUST SEE top tier shit ever. Maybe fans exaggerating but they still sensed the threat amongst their now monopolized industry. All they wanted is to tarnish that legacy and they did.

I was with you up until this. You don't spend $4 billion on a dump truck and then slash its tires. They wanted SW to succeed. Their fuck-up was letting JJ collaborate on the script of the first one instead of just shoot it and giving KK too much control which she pissed away indulging Rian's need to subvert all the things plus the Solo mess - how the fuck do you get cornered into firing your directors that late into shooting?

The idea that they bought SW to try to snuff it makes no sense.

fair enough

I just cannot accept that level of mismanagement and idiocy

Also, quick tirade here, little off topic, you cannot deny that nerd culture is being trolled by the industry at this point as with the internet rising to prominence more than ever it seems nerds now dominate the current social apparatus being experts in their own minds regarding it all.

KK blatantly made shirts that read "THE FORCE IS FEMALE!!!" and took photos wearing them with female fans and she did everything she could with Finn and Kylo's dichotomy involving Rey to make fans bitch about Rey choosing the evil bad boy instead of some devoted lover. This is what actual women have told me as their interpretations because they "know the feminist movement" enough to recognize when their antics are being used to stir controversy and sell tickets by working fans into a frenzy.

Add that to the fact Machinema was YouTube's number 1 channel before the corporatization of YT + how the video games industry then became completely money driven following that realization and it becomes evident the entire media industry as a whole has seen what Nerd culture is capable of and capitalized on it enough to try and troll the living shit out of it in order to kill any hopes that nerds had in their imaginations regarding the power structure of their beloved franchises over the rest of the industry. Nerds were willing to go to bat harder than any fanbase there was to a point you'd compare them to religious fanatics and Hollywood has actively mocked that and made every attempt to transform that culture into something lesser than it could be if not for the blatant sabotage of things that grind nerds gears the most.

Face it, they did at some level want to sabotage StarWars, if only a little bit, and they ended up completely tarnishing it.

Don't attribute to malice that which can be attributed to incompetence. SW became a repeat of Ghostbusters 2016 where they took a franchise with a majority male fanbase and tried to reinforce its marketing with gender wokeness and then attacked those fans when they didn't respond well. KK has a long and distinguished career in logistics in film but this was her first time being in the center seat and being the public face of a project. I don't doubt that she did her best but her best didn't land. She's like Naomi in Showgirls - always making the worst possible decision in every encounter.

The most amazing thing about the ST is how underdeveloped all of it is. I can understand JJ shitting it up after what he did with Star Trek 2009 but they also had Lawrence Kasdan working on this. He's written and directed some drek like Darling Companion but he's also done a lot of great work. I'd kill to hear his unedited take on what it was like to deal with JJ and KK as he was writing. It must have been frustrating as hell.

>Hollywood has actively mocked that
I don't think they have. I think they've had people like JJ and KK leading some projects who didn't understand the demands of the audience and thought the fans could be relied on to fork over $$ for anything branded SW. Marvel has done the opposite of that with the MCU. One guy held the reins on those movies and didn't fuck up very much and fans even let the fuck-ups like Thor 2 have a free pass. Alex Kurtzman (spit) has been the guiding hand on nuTrek on tv and it's all been shit and CBS has been fighting to keep it on the air. These companies aren't trying to sabotage their products in order to offend their customers - they're trying to sell their products and exploit fashionable trends to do it and it's been backfiring on them because what they thought were trends turned out to be niche obsessions with sharp edges that didn't jive with their products nor the majority of their customers.

You can see a foreshadowing of the nuWars fuckup in Michael Piller's book "Fade In" about writing Star Trek Insurrection, arguably the blandest and dumbest of the pre-JJ Trek movies. Paramount execs fought with him a lot about what he wanted to do with the story and he kept patting them on the ass and assuring them that he could make it work. This is the man who turned TNG around in its third season and invigorated the show and co-created Deep Space Nine. He had a record of success and they eventually let him have his way and they got a pile of garbage in return. It's not hard to imagine Disney and KK going through almost exactly the same motions, assuming Disney argued with her over any of the major plot decisions.

Hollywood is very big and very old and every project has a hundred people behind it arguing over conflicting visions, expectations and misunderstandings. Disney bought SW to print money and handed SW over to someone who'd been joined at the hip with Lucas/Spielberg since their early days and trusted her to knock it out of the park. She promised to swing for the fences but she bunted and then puked on herself before she could round second base. Disney was betrayed, the actors were betrayed and the fans were betrayed plus got their eyes spit in. Disney owns the mess for not putting its foot down and forcing plot/character changes and demoting or removing KK. They thought KK was going to be their Feige. Instead she was their JarJar Binks. They let her go unchecked for too long.

I was saying after it became popular. Don't forget that official baby Yoda merchandise didn't get released until two months after the season premiered because of Disney's marketing strategy of keeping it a surprise, which to Jon Favreau's credit paid off very well.

Because the movies themselves aren't very good people tend to forget that the prequels were technically very impressive at the time. They pushed for and pioneered a lot of new tech.
For example, Episode Two was the first major blockbuster to be shot entirely with digital camera.

Mando is fun 90s style tv. Reminds me of xena or Hercules or shit like that. As long as they keep main story jedi shit to a minimum itll stay good. Baby yoda merch/meme is annoying but its not really the selling point for me. The story making sense and the fun little adventures are what make it good.

to some extent, its neither good or bad tho. its playing it safe, but its barely makes the mark of a good star wars lore. i never watched it anyways, because its looks fairly simple to me and lost all love of star wars, so im just talking out of my ass. but base on the review videos ive seen, the consensus seems to be all the same. mediocre at best.

Just sick of people chiming in when they have nothing to add. If you didn't like it you didn't like it, but I don't want unverifiable second hand accounts of some anonymous vloggers parroted, it adds literally nothing. here's an example.

I saw online through some review videos from imageboards critics that you suck, I don't know you myself as we've never talked though so maybe I'm just full of shit, but the consensus is you really suck dude. Maybe mediocre at best.

I was watching some star wars shitty youtube video and they were talking about how before mando season 1 came out they did zero promotion of baby yoda. Pretty cool tbh. This season 2 has very little in teases as to what is going to happen as well. Much prefer shit like this to not get leaked to hell and marketed down the ass.

Kind of goes against the guy bitching earlier in the thread about baby yoda marketing when they didn't even do that until the show came out.

Anybody who thinks anything is going to ''save'' star wars is absolutely delusional which is why no one is claiming that. Dunno why you keep bringing it up. Making a star wars film/movie at this point is like making a batman film/movie. Most are shit, some are fun, a very select few are legitimately good.

No one sees a new batman being announced and thinks ''This will save batman!''. It's just a setting. The sooner you ignore the rabid uber nerd fanbase and the people obsessed with proving how shit it will be (like the people who wouldn't shut up about how awful Bieber or Twilight was back in the day because they didn't have enough of a personality to talk about anything else), the better your life will be and the more likely you'll be to maybe enjoy something from the setting eventually. or simply ignore it the way most well adjusted adults ignore batman movies.

>George Lucas’ sale of Lucasfilm to Disney was a watershed moment for blockbuster filmmaking in 2012, and Lucas has revealed his reason for doing so. Writer Paul Duncan shared a portion of his book The Star Wars Archives. 1999–2005, which features comments from Lucas regarding why he decided to sell the company. Lucas noted that it was difficult for him to give up control of his family, but chose to do so in order to prioritize his home life.

“At that time I was starting the next trilogy; I talked to the actors and I was starting to gear up. I was also about to have a daughter with my wife. It takes 10 years to make a trilogy – ‘Episodes I ‘ to ‘III’ took from 1995 to 2005,” Lucas said. “I’d still be working on ‘Episode IX!’ In 2012, I was 69. So the question was am I going to keep doing this the rest of my life? Do I want to go through this again? Finally, I decided I’d rather raise my daughter and enjoy life for a while. I could have not sold Lucasfilm and gotten somebody to run the productions, but that isn’t retiring. On ‘The Empire Strikes Back‘ and ‘Return of the Jedi‘ I tried to stay out of the way but I couldn’t. I was there every day. Even though the people were friends of mine and they did great work, it wasn’t the same as me doing it. It was like being once removed. I knew that probably wouldn’t work again, that I’d be frustrated. I’m one of those micro-manger guys and I can’t help it. So I figured I would forgo that, enjoy what I had and I was looking forward to raising my daughter. Also, I wanted to build a museum, which I’d always wanted to do, so I was thinking, ‘If I don’t do this now, I’ll never get that done.’”

>Lucas also shot down the rumor that he was just sick of the franchise noting:

“I’ve spent my life creating ‘Star Wars’ – 40 years – and giving it up was very, very painful. But it was the right thing to do. I thought I was going to have a little bit more to say about the next three because I’d already started them, but they decided they wanted to do something else. Things don’t always work the way you want it. Life is like that.”

Don't forget the shit ton of money from the sale.

It will mark the first feature film in the franchise to be directed by a woman. The film joins Taika Waititi’s Star Wars movie which the studio is also currently developing.

Disney is using Marvel, Star Wars, NatGeo, and their animated films to drive up Disney+ subs. I wouldn't be surprised if Disney+ becomes the 2nd biggest streaming service next to Netflix if it hasn't already. It's a smart tactic especially bundling it with Hulu (which also has FX) and ESPN+ but I agree that it's a lot of content that feels overwhelming.

I didn't really mind him to begin with.

I'm more interested in the apparent rematch between him and Kenobi that we're getting, according to Ewan McGregor.

One; their original duel as Vader//OldBen was lackluster and then to make up for it we saw the longest reigning sword fight in cinema history be their OG battle in episode III // ROTS.
Two, this will be interesting regardless because it's our first real continuity bridge through episodes 3-4.

He was a consultant. They would go to him about little things and ask for his blessings on things. Mandalorian is what the sequel trilogies should have done. its so much better it's stupid. They fucked up so bad. Fuck Disney man. I just hope Kathleen Kennedy doesn't get her greasey fingers all over mandalorian and start demanding stupid shit and putting JJ Abrams on as an on screen character.

Fuck off. RLM made those reviews over ten years ago and most of it is comedy. They've been consistently watching movies with their friends and reviewing them and having a good time without getting caught up in internet drama or youtube tier bullshit. Hard working group of people and this random shitter is coming in trying to ride on their coattails to discredit them because his feelings got hurt when they said the prequels are bad.

The prequels are bad. They fucking suck. So does the new trilogy. I remember my ex watching all the star wars in order because she never watched them and was so pissed during the clone wars that she turned the movie off and I had to convince her that it gets better later. She eventually got to the original trilogy and was a fan.

It's fine if you like them but the corny dialogue and shitty CGI alone makes them hard to watch for me. They have some moments but as a whole the prequels are just not good and I never want to go back to them and watch them and when I do I don't enjoy them. That being said they are still somehow better than the sequel trilogy which is more insulting than anything.

Another notable detail is that the same actors who played Uncle Lars and Aunt Beru in the prequels are returning for the series. Considering how small were their parts in those moves, it's actually a surprising cast choice.

Also, most people assume that Darth Maul will show up at some point in the show, but for that to happen Filoni would need to heavily retcon what he did in the cartoon.

I haven't watched it in awhile, but something that would always come up when I watched Attack of the Clones was that George's obsession with trying out newfangled CGI always eclipsed whatever else was going on. The result was bad writing, pacing, character development, etc., but the worst part was that as the years drew on, you couldn't even marvel at the CGI because it looked like dogshit compared to what you could see in any average summer blockbuster. It's like George shot himself once in both feet, although he's laughing all the way to the bank so I doubt he cares

Anakin in Attack of the Clones was probably the most cringeworthy performance I've seen in all the Star Wars films. He was better in Revenge of the Sith but I mean turning to the dark side and becoming Darth Vader isn't that hard to pull off.

>I guess Jumper was apparently all right? Can't think of anything else though

I'd say Shattered Glass was probably his best film. If he had done smaller films like that after Revenge of the Sith with the right directors and performances, he could have turned his career around like Robert Pattinson did after Twilight, which took him several years for his performances in smaller films to finally pay off and be rewarded with bigger roles in Tenet and The Batman.

>>418871
You also had all those Star Wars re-releases just so George Lucas could put in CGI and other bullshit and Steven Spielberg changing the guns to walkie-talkies in ET's 20th anniversary release (he regretted that later). Those were more of a distraction than an improvement since the films were already fine as they were.

What are you talking about? The scenes where he avenges his mother's death, which is what I would do, leaves him in turmoil as he realizes he went against the jedi code and doesn't actually care. He pulled it off and he did it well.

Fair, I will concede that revenge portion of the film was done pretty well, and that momentarily George was able to create some pathos for a character who was pretty much hung out to try by the Jedi. More of that comes through in Ep. III, but overall Anakin's character is pretty butchered in Ep. II

>>418880
Luke is also pretty annoying if you go back and watch Ep. IV (which makes sense; he's like 19 or something). But he's also earnest, unlike Anakin, which allows him to possess a degree of humility, especially after he gets his ass handed to him by Vader. Anakin/Vader doesn't really show any self-reflection at all until he dies to save Luke

Also it's at the exacthalfway marker into both movie's runtimes on episode 2 and 3 that you see Anakin and Padme both as he turns into Vader. That scene when his mother dies and the convo as two shadows before Anakin leaves, his head shapes Vader and then in ROTS at the halfway point is when the Temple fall sets in.

iirc the Council basically told Anakin to fuck off because he was too old (pretty bad excuse) and because he was controlled by doubt and fear about his mom (fair, but also understandable because Anakin's like 9). Blame should really be shared by both the Council and Qui-Gon; the former for being set in its ways and unable to help Anakin emotionally mature, and the latter for clearly jumping the gun and picking up an Outer Rim slave boy because of Anakin's midichlorian count and Qui-Gon's intuition about him (note how Obi-Wan saw all of this as a bad idea, and took on Anakin as a padawan pretty much solely out of obligation to Qui-Gon. He became a sort of surrogate father figure because he realized Anakin needed much more support than the Jedi Council was providing).

I see your point about how Anakin and Luke grew up in very different circumstances, but I think it's also important to remember their motivations and what they were after before getting hitched to the Jedi/Rebellion. Anakin had these grand aspirations to free all the slaves and punish the people who did bad things (foreshadowing?), while Luke just wanted to get off of Tatooine (Imperial academy or join the Rebellion, it didn't matter). Anakin is also driven by loss or fear of loss: his mom, Padme, Obi-Wan, etc, and like you said, this fear ultimately destroys him until he lets go of it. Conversely, Luke is driven by love of those around him: to protect and save his friends and family, including his dad

Exactly my bruh. There's a complexity to Anakin's character beyond the scripted awkward teenage dialogue that when really considered is deep, and encompasses his development from the end of adolescence to the beginning of adult hood in a whirlwind of change of atmosphere. To completely ignore Christensen's complete turmoil at the regret of abandoning his mother for her to die because he wasn't there was executed perfectly in AOTC. Prequel haters are gonna hate but it was the best trilogy because it was completely George's vision. The I hate sand scene was good because it showed the distance Anakin was making with Jedi tenant. He's on a date with Padme saying he hates sand when he's a Jedi who's supposed to be above personal attachments and petty hate, but he's not. It's called foreshadowing

I thought the storyline was very compelling. Final fight scene also was dope yes

I know you're probably cringing your ass off at the thought, but remember it when it first came out; I watched it at the time, it very much felt like it was setting the stage for a bigger and better universe.

If you imagine a world where it was just this film and absolutely nothing else, then it stands on its own pretty damn well.

..and then came episode II and the hype died spectacularly and soured the view of Episode I. It was amazing how much hate came out, I would've loved to be a fly on the wall at the executives table.

Watching it again many years later, I'd muse what other posters said above; the fucking CGI was absolutely terrible and has aged like milk, fucking Lucas jumping on the lazy af CGI train...

Seems Star Wars has a problem when it comes to overarching narratives. Episode II - terrible narrative. The sequels (which I find were total trash too), Episode VIII - absolutely terrible narrative.

Legit the only good stuff that has come out of Star Wars post original trilogy is what's on TV and Rogue One. Everything else just seems like a massive cynical cash grab.

I still maintain that I enjoyed the prequels. Ep 1 was my favorite (of the prequels), ep 2 wasn't terrible but I didn't like ep 3 that much. I loved the clones and naboo and gungans and maul and geonosis and a bunch of stuff. Sure there was cheesy acting and some bad CGI but I don't get why it seems that's so overbearing for so many people.

I don't know, as an innocent kid I loved seeing the prequels in cinemas and getting them on DVD and watching them over and over. I think that's the definition of a good movie. At least an enjoyable one.

I thought the sequels sucked (never saw the last one) and also did not get the hype for rogue one. I thought the Solo movie was the best of the new shit.

Adults making fun because it's for kids and nerds grow up to idolize the nostalgias, that should be what makes you realize that rose tinted eyeglasses aren't enough. You have all the adult themes of politics and war thrown in so that it can be technically be deemed a work of art in reflecting the real world.

Lucas edited the prequels and badly lip synced a handful of lines from different characters who ended up audibly and visibly terrible on full release DVD versions. CGI didn't go well and that's most of the prequels. Romance was.... misunderstood. Episode III is regarded as the best of the prequels, and the GOAT to some.

I liked Star Wars for it's beautiful visuals and futuristic fantasy story, but never understood it's weird fanbase.
Same goes to Harry Potter, I liked the first few movies but later got bored with the series, probably because David Yets if I'm not spelling his name wrong, is a shitty movie director that can make a good story look shitty and boring on screen.

No, more just that Christensen in particular is associated with the stink of the Prequels in the popular imagination, and Disney, being intent on focus-grouping things to death and immediately backtracking to the safe arms of JJ Abrams when there was hysterical overreaction to their slight deviation from the script, is averse to upsetting this loud segment of fans for whom the Prequels are universally dogshit

I do like how they're telling Boba's story of what happened after Return of the Jedi and in the present. I did like seeing how he was able to gain the respect of the Tusken Raiders by helping kill the sand creature, which was a cool sequence. Should be interesting to see who those ninja assassins that Fennec was able to capture one of is working for.

The prequels are ugly and horribly acted. While I appreciate the interpretation that they are criticism of liberalism, at the time they were so clearly about Bush and the Iraq war I’m unsure that was intentional. It is based that Lucas supported the Vietcong so maybe it was all intentional and all the money and fame didn’t change him. But they’re so hard to watch I can’t appreciate them.

The orig trig as theatrically released are all master pieces. Ewoks and all.

I didn’t hate the force awakens when it came out but with all the Star Wars tv shows and how bad it’s trilogy ended up I really hate it for it’s lack of originality. You couldn’t have made 3 movies about trying to figure out what to do with a baby yoda?

Last Jedi introduced some big ideas that I appreciated but i think most “fans” only want to view Star Wars as power fantasy. That said the movie would be infinitely better if Finn swapped roles with Rose, Poe with Finn and Rose with Poe. But i guess that’s not as hot of a take as crying about a woman having purple hair.

The more I think about rise of sky walker the more shocked I am they even released it. This franchise is a huge investment for Disney, how do you let this see the light of day?

Book of Boba 2 episodes in;

I don't know if it was smart to try and make the audience root/care for the tuscan raiders, a group we've always known to be 'bad guys' for jumping Luke all those years ago.

Also the first two episodes are almost identical. They go to the space club, talk to cryptic owner for 90 seconds, leave and immediately get into a confrontation outside the club.

There are other things I could complain about that biker space bar scene? but then they go and bring in Jabba's relatives seeking revenge with their gangster Wookie and it's like you son of a bitch, I'm in.

Thought the second episode was a big step up from the first imo. The Tusken Raiders were given a more human face in the first season of the Mandalorian, so I wasn't opposed to them continuing that line with Fett.

The time jumps are kind of weird in terms of storytelling, and I worry that it'll end up kinda jumbled as the series continues, but it seems to be working decently so far.

Setting up the primary antagonists for the season (the Hut cousins) as well as that badass Wookie bounty hunter in their employ got me stoked for the rest of the season. Overall, still finding its footing, but nothing I haven't enjoyed watching so far

Not to mention this last episode we saw Luke training Grogu and Ahsoka talking to Mando so this show is basically a preview of The Mandalorian season 3. Like the first twenty minutes of the episode were pretty slow because of that but the last twenty minutes were better and it was cool at least to see Cad Bane finally make his live action debut. That showdown scene with Cobb was like something out of a Western and the Pykes bombing the cantina was messed up but it does build hype for what could happen in next week's finale.

There just seems to be way too much stuff going on for them to tie it together effectively for this final episode, unless it's over an hour long.

If this upcoming episode finishes the series, I gotta say they did Temuera Morrison a little dirty

Yeah, why even bring in Cad Bane, not super well-known but a fan-favorite from the Clone Wars series, and kill him off in two episodes? I honestly could see him being brought back, as lame as that would be.

The ending seemed to imply that Boba and Fennec were done with Tatooine, and Boba being daimyo; and if that's the case, then what was the point of anything that just happened? I have a lot of gripes with this show, but the main one is that it simply wasn't about Boba very much. It should have just focused the story on Mando again for Mando S03, or go all-in on Boba, but the way it was split between both (and Grogu, and Luke) left it unfocused and disappointing. At least people other than Filoni and Favreau are working on Kenobi. I hope that with the fresh blood we'll get something new

Not sure how hacky this article is but apparently Boba and Cad were in an episode of Clone Wars together, and there is some further backstory from the comics and other media (https://screenrant.com/star-wars-cad-bane-boba-fett-backstory-timeline/). Cad taking Boba under his wing to train him as a bounty hunter is a decent story, but I didn't really get any of that from when they interacted in the series. Oh well, Cad's dead, and he'll probably get his own series at this rate anyways

I'm cautiously optimistic about the new Obi-Wan series. New trailer was cool, hope they don't immediately start with something stupid like a lightsaber duel between Anakin and Obi-Wan

Yeah Disney can't seem to film a a convincing chase scene to save its life in any of its Star Wars shows. The script also isn't great, something that seems to have carried over from Book of Boba Fett. Still, I think this show has a lot more promise than BoBF ever did at this point. Most of that is due to McGregor, who can actually act. The Inquisitors and Bail Organa have been solid as well

Luke is 19 and Obi-Wan is 57 in A New Hope, so Obi-Wan's around 48 or so in the show. Which is funny, as you said, because they've written him to be in his sixties, which Alec Guinness was when A New Hope Was shot (he was 63, although he looks older imo). Obi-Wan's chronology is kind of messy but it does make some sense, which is why I'm wondering why they wrote him to be pretty old for this series. I guess to emphasize that he's washed-up?

Thanks for clearing that up. Sad he was 57 when he died, short life. The desert like in Lawrence of Arabia probably aged him. Why they couldn't have been on a nice world like Leia, they had the money and political pull to be training the boy in a more suitable environment.

By coherence I guess I meant the Sequels having a serviceable script, basic plot structure, and decent CGI, none of which the Prequels (outside of Ep. III, perhaps) have. This isn't to defend the Sequels, more just to say that a film like the Force Awakens, even though a lazy remake of Ep. IV, was an objectively better made film than, say, Ep. II.

With Book of Boba being a dud and Obi-Wan Kenobi now also struggling to get going (with two eps left!), I'm starting to get pretty bearish on all subsequent Disney+ Star Wars offerings, maybe excepting the Mandalorian. It's like these series are written by committee, stringing together "cool ideas" and then lashing them together with a repetitive narrative and bad script. Someone's shitting the bed over there, maybe Kathleen Kennedy

But it's good in way, I've got a huge movie collection and to see it dusted out with T.V series getting as good as the movies, I just don't have enough space and time to be collecting T.V as well, it just gets the flick over.

yeah i really wanted to like the obi wan series but... it's meh. i agree, it's like they just had flash cards of "cool scenes" and then smashed them together completely incoherently.

how did reva get her saber back for example

It's way too uneven, which I honestly think would have been helped a lot by making the series into a movie. Would have forced the directors and writers to tighten the narrative and focus in on what they are actually trying to tell

Finale was pretty good. The Vader-Obi-Wan duel that had been built up since the beginning delivered. I thought McGregor and Christensen were great and hadn't lost a step since Ep. III. The Reva subplot was kind of a clusterfuck though, and while I liked what they were getting at they just did it really sloppily. The end with Qui-Gon was nice.

Yeah the finale was good and the Vader-Kenobi duel was cool but I do feel like they shouldn't have had them duel two times before that and should have kept them apart until then to build the hype especially that first duel (the second duel I can sort of give a pass since it was a flashback and stuff). Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen do have good chemistry though. Reva's subplot was a mess since it was like "is she a Sith or still a Jedi?" Obviously she wasn't gonna kill Luke but it could have been handled better.
