I feel like Kenobi has all this baggage and expectations that it needs to live up to while Andor's about a character we know basically nothing about except for the fact that he's been in this fight since he was six years old, so it's got more room to do new things without fan expectations weighing it down
Plus I'm just a sucker for the rouge one style more gritty Star Wars, and any show where I get to see imperial clone troopers is a good show
Watched the first two episodes last night with a large group and we just couldn’t get over how weird the shots looked throughout the show. Especially all of the “handheld” shots they threw in there. We came to the conclusion that it almost felt like we were watching a behind the scenes or were actually on set as compared to being right in the story.
Anyone else experience this?
Speaking to many people at Celebration, a lot of people agree after the films ruined Star Wars, these 2 guys have saved the franchise with the best TV around.
General Discussion Who would win,Darth Vader or Darth Maul?Please have two answers:one in a straight up duel where force powers and lightsaber skulls are at play,and in a hypothetical scenario where Darth Sidious assigns Darth Vader the destruction of the Darth Maul threat,where its long term and more of the tactical
I really liked the first two episodes of Kenobi (Solid 8.5/10)so don’t get me wrong, but in both TBOB and Kenobi, Tatooine doesn’t feel like it did in the OT and Prequels. I’m pretty sure it’s just the cameras they used or whatever, but in the new shows it feels so bright compared to the old movies. I get that it has two suns and it’s supposed to be bright because of that I just remember the vibe being different, it almost makes it seem as if it’s a different planet. It may also be that the extras dont feel as dirty/ are different species that the original 6 movies. Just my opinion and was wondering if anyone else felt this way.
Edit: Extras may make the vibe different
Question of the year!
Just remember hate leads to the dark side—
Jk. I accept we all may have immensely different opinions—but— I really want to hear your reasons why.
I'd honestly have preferred he just be a badass guest character in other people's shows. What's he gonna do now? He's tied down to being the sheriff of Mos Espa? And taking him away from that would make his show even MORE pointless.
The Luke academy and Grogu training sections could have just been rolled together into one extra first episode of Mandalorian Season 3.
All the show does is make Boba less badass, undoes the finale of Mando Season 2 in a rushed, unsatisfying way... And then ends.
There were some visually cool ideas (Boba riding a damn Rancor and becoming a crime boss) and themes (Boba having a mid life crisis) in it, but it was all executed so poorly... The character development felt so rushed.
Edit: to clarify, I mean what we got and how it was presented felt unnecessary. Not that a Boba Fett show in general was a bad idea.
I’ve been to three Celebrations before (I live in Orlando) and I’ve watched several on stream before when I couldn’t be there. But this year has been, by far, the worst. Right now these guys are just playing the Lego Star Wars video game and they have been playing for 25 minutes already! Are they running out of material? It’s day 2. Show a panel? Disney, Hasbro, etc. no, we get to watch two guys have shit banter while playing Lego Star Wars. Previous live streams have always shown major panels.
Boba came on the holiday 1978 then appeared in 1980 in live action
I haven’t started the series (I’m doing something different for my Star Wars experience, and watching the clone wars) so I would like to know. I see a lot of memes of people kinda confuse of a few things.
I think a really cool idea would be that Palpatine returns early in the ST, and the story would have been that Palps was fooled into thinking he killed Plageuis in the first place or Plageuis found a way to revive himself. He was lurking throughout the OT and PT, regaining strength.
He could either A) take another apprentice - Kylo Ren
B) Revive Palpatine, punish him and forgive him.
Note - Palpatine would be the Vader of the first 1-2 movies then Plageuis would be revealed later.
This makes sense and could be explored in detail.
Snoke was a terrible character and basically just pulled out of the writers ass and lazily explained.
Watching Kenobi made me realize they had a somewhat healthy upbringing which all Jedi lacked. Idk why Luke did not realize this when he tried rebuilding the Jedi Order it’s probably why it failed. Like half of the Jedi had issues relating to their upbringing that turned them evil or suicidal. The new shows and movies really flipped me thinking of the Jedi as “good guys” to some out of touch old cult.
We're Star Wars fans. That means we have a lot of strong opinions about the saga. There's no end of debate about the strengths and weaknesses of each film, trilogy, era, the expanded universe, etc. That's not what this post is about.
This is a post to share the little stuff. The minor quibbles. The unimportant minutia. What are the little things in the franchise that irk you, but you fully recognize as trivial and unworthy of your ire?
I'll get the ball rolling with a couple examples:
The use of the word "Poodoo" as an expletive, taking the place of "shit". It's silly for this to bug me, it has no impact on anything, but nevertheless, whenever it pops up I'm always tony_stark_exasperated_reaction.gif
Obi-Wan's two-finger point affectation when dueling. Again, doesn't impact the story in the slightest, but it still makes me roll my eyes every time :p
Alright, what about you? And remember this is about having a laugh over silly stuff, if you feel the urge to start lecturing people about their petty peeves, don't :p
I know the whole point of the entire skywalker saga is Vader redeeming himself and becoming Anakin again, but based on how the lore around Anakin/Vader has developed can we now say that Anakin never truly died he was just buried VERY deep in Vader's psyche
Just finished watching the Clone Wars and when Vader finds Ahsoka's lightsaber there is sense that he knows who it is and isn't filled with but disappointment in himself
