    Re: Star Wars Thread

    I'm actually looking forward to the Final Season of Clone Wars AND Resistance...Still Miffed about how Thrawn went out. REALLY hoping he makes a cameo in Clone Wars...hoping XD In other News I've been hearing they're doing something with Old Republic or just fan speculation as usual XD

    If you want an idea of what Thrawn was like during the Clone Wars, may I suggest the newly released book Thrawn: Alliances? The new book (written by Timothy Zahn) features a few chapters which has Thrawn ally himself with Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars.

    Re: Star Wars Thread

    Just finished watching the first few episodes of Resistance, and I just wanted to give my two-cents on this series. First off: the negatives. Star Wars: Resistance's art style is definitely going to be off-putting for some. It was stated in the beginning of production that this series was going to have an anime-inspired look, going so far as to hire the studio the made the Knights of Sidonia anime. However it seems some fans took that to mean it was going to have an art style similar to a 70's, 80's, or 90's anime. The truth is that it really looks more like a brightly colored Knights of Sidonia. Still it's not outright terrible, just jarring at first. The next negative is the protagonist, Kazuda Xiono. This is a character that is clearly trying way too hard to fit in. He is likeable, but characters that try too hard often make moronic choices that just make you want groan. Still it is early in the series, so it will be interesting to see where his development goes as it is clear he has a lot to learn.

    Now for the positives of this series, and there are plenty. First off, the animation is beautiful and has a very nice flow to it, especially with the aerial racing scenes. Secondly, textures and backgrounds are gorgeous; they give this series that used-future aesthetic that makes Star Wars... well Star Wars. Everything looks like it's cobbled together and about to fall apart. The last positive is the story. This series takes place six months before The Force Awakens. The First Order are still hiding in the shadows, lying in wait to make their strike on the New Republic. The Resistance has tasked Kazuda Xiono with a mission: report back on suspicious persons who might live, work, and/or pass through the refueling station Colossus (where the series takes place on) while maintaining cover as a simple mechanic. No grand battles here, only espionage and intrigue. This sounds like an interesting concept and it very much reminds me of a Cold War thriller. It's a great new direction and I can't wait to see where the story goes.

    Re: Star Wars Thread

    After having watched a few more episodes of Resistance, it's clear that there is a much more potent show lying underneath the surface. I will give this caveat though: the show only gets interesting when either racing or the First Order are involved.



    And now, it looks like the First Order is going to take center stage.

    Re: Star Wars Thread

    Just watched the final episode of the first season of Star Wars Resistance... and man, this season ended on such a good note. Despite the early missteps, this show is actually pretty good. Kaz has come a LONG way from when he was first introduced. He's been basically accepted by almost everyone on the Colossus. I say almost everyone in that only one person out the entire population on the Colossus did not trust Kaz: fellow mechanic Tamera Ryvora. Tam is of the opinion that the First Order is genuinely interested in protecting people. Now, this belief stems from the fact that her grandfather was an engineer for the Galactic Empire but stress that not everyone in the Empire is inherently evil. Some were just trying to put food on the table. Kaz on the other hand, being a denizen of the New Republic capital of Hosnian Prime, knows his history and does not like the First Order. By the end of the season, Kaz becomes a competent Resistance fighter while Tamera joins the First Order.

    I say give this show a shot, as it gets better (way better than I gave it credit for) as you progress through the episodes.

    We PROBABLY won't know how and if he went out in any way until Treasons this July. I know Filoni said he's survived the event of Rebels but definitely interested in seeing where Zahn will take the Grand Admiral. After all, he IS mentioned in Empire's End though very briefly.

    Is he? I'm pretty sure that it was a different Grand Admiral that was mentioned in the Aftermath trilogy.

    Speaking of Filoni, anyone else get the feeling that he may be set up to take Kathleen Kennedy's place in the near future? If I were to trust the future of Star Wars to anyone, it would be Dave Filoni. I mean, he was the apprentice of George Lucas when they worked on The Clone Wars. He understands the Star Wars mythos deeper than anyone else on the LucasFilm staff.

    The Aftermath trilogy features Rae Sloane as Grand Admiral of the post-Endor Imperial Remnants so you would be correct Zeta. But in Empire’s End, Thrawn was mentioned only once in the latter half of the book talking about how he helped mapped the Unknown Regions where the post-Jakku remnants would meet the Eclipse and eventually start the First Order. It’s cool how Thrawn played a super indirect role (as we know of now) in the birth of the First Order. Also thanks to Rebels having him be the pioneer of the TIE Defender, how the First Order emphasized quality in their TIEs by having shields in all models

    I definitely believe in Filoni. The man has helpedThe Clone Wars be the legend it is. Not to mention making Rebels amazing from Season 2 on (imo). I mean, they got Ian McDiarmid to voice the Emp...I mean, The Senate. What more could you ask? If ANYONE should lead the Star Wars franchise, it should be him and NOT Kathleen Kennedy.

    Oh yeah, that's right. Thrawn did help the Empire map the Unknown Regions.

    Correct on all counts.

    Re: Star Wars Thread

    So Star Wars Celebration is going on in Chicago and two big trailers have already dropped.

    The first is the teaser for Episode IX.



    Not sure how I feel about the name. Perhaps there is some kind of meaning to it. Other than that issue, the teaser looks cool. I'm not hyped, but I nonetheless look forward to the movie.

    The second trailer is for Respawn Entertainment's new Star Wars game Jedi: Fallen Order.



    Now this, I am hyped for. I will definitely be getting this game.

    Re: Star Wars Thread

    The main thing I have for/against the new Star Wars trailer is this. I don't want to be hyped up about another Star Wars movie only to be let down because it is yet another Hollywood SJW branded movie. We have been let down with episode 7 & 8. They did the same thing with their trailers, make it look all cool and great, only to be a horrible rendition or remake of "A New Hope" then a horribly bad remake almost line for line of "Empire Strikes Back". They did a sort of God awful "Ghostbusters" remix of the Star Wars brand. Lets make Star Wars again, but this time no men, or the ones we have are either soy boys, or dead beat dads who are bad people, but either way only the women can do anything right, men just mess things up. All hail Rose! O' and while we are at it lets just destroy everything about the legacy of Luke Skywalker and the New Jedi order. Cannon? Nope lets rewrite it all. And it was Jason Solo who went to the Dark Side NOT Ben!! But what do I know I only read the books and followed the story line that was set down YEARS ago.....

    I might be in the minority here, but I did really like the 2 side stories, Rouge was great. A few WTF moments, but all in all it was in line with the original story line and most of the cannon.
    The Solo movie I liked it. As a Star Wars movie it was just a good Popcorn movie. True they did not read the Solo books as to how he met Chewy and he did not get him name because some random imperial officer just "gave" it to him. Once again a lot of WTF moments but all in all it was just a fun movie. Unlike 7 & 8 which were really just one long W......T.......F......! moment.

    The sad part is I will see the damn thing anyway. Damn it!! But like episode 8, I will most likely wait for the blue-ray to see it.

    Sorry about the rant if it "Triggers" you, but that is what the new Disney Star Wars is all about. F the fans, and force the SJW agenda down your throat.
    (P.S. if this did in fact "trigger" someone. Good, I'm a MARINE I pulled triggers for a living and I'm good at it.)


    To error is human, to forgive is divine, Luckily I'm neither of these things!

    Re: Star Wars Thread

    ^I take it that you are a Legends fan then? That's fine. It was thanks to Legends that we got some amazing material like the X-Wing books, the Thrawn trilogy, the Darth Bane trilogy, and Knight of the Old Republic. Granted, there was also a lot of mediocre material and some, for a lack of a better phrase, really crappy material that one would have sift through in order to find the gems worth searching for.

    I never got the impression that The Last Jedi had an SJW agenda behind it. I think people just conflated this movie with SJWs in order find reason on why this movie didn't resonate with them when really the true issue is that The Last Jedi had some pretty awful writing.

    And now, the final campaign begins.



    I sense that you can hyped for this at the very least.

    You gave up after Season 4? Oh man, you missed out on sooooo many events that transpired. I'll say this then, go watch Season 5 and Season 6 then come back.

    Re: Star Wars Thread

    I know what happened. Still felt like I didn't miss much, the characters just didn't click with me anymore. I also thought the resurrection of Darth Maul was one of the dumbest things in SW history, but what do I know?
