Hmm, not too sure what to think of that.

Death Star wreckage? Brilliant, I love that idea!

The Emperors laugh gave me a brief chill.

But the name is.... dumb. And after 8, I'm not too thrilled. I didn't like 8 much at all.

During the fight between Palpatine and Mace Windu in episode 3 did the emperor get disfigured or was his true appearance revealed?

Do you refer to the new movies as the sequel trilogy or the Disney trilogy? Or something else?

I think they are supposed to be referred to as the sequel trilogy.

Roddy, I always saw it as Palpatine used it as an excuse to reveal his true appearance. I bet it took a lot of Force to conjure that "mask".

I may not be all that excited for Despise of the Skywalker, but you know what I am damn excited about?

THIS!

Cob, that’s a really cool angle that I never thought about. I’m going to accept it now as the canon I never new I needed!

Speaking of ol’ Papa Palpatine, y’all see that new Black Series figure of him with his Death Star Throne? Isn’t that thing just the coolest?

Man I hope The Mandalorian is cool. It has the potential to be as good as Rogue One, I just hope it’s better than Agents of SHIELD. With John Favreau, Dave Filoni, AND Taika Waitit, I’m sure it will be.

I am really confused. They cancel a bobba fett movie, something everyone wanted (cancelled an amazing looking game too but thats another thing). And yet they greenlight a show about a bounty hunter who has the same armour, what gives?

Also, I always thought that with palpatine, he was trading his youth for power. Like how magic always has a cost, or one of those faustian deals. He grew more powerful but it drained his lifeforce and made him age tremendously inorder to release all that power. that power did of course subsequently leave him alive for a long time, but always looking like that.

Honestly, I always felt that was something really dumb in the prequels. When we see him as a younger man we are all thinking, makes sense this is him young and later he is old. he would just age into looking older later (like Obi Wan, Greedo, Darth Vader, Luke, ect). That would have made perfect sense. But no, Lucas wanted us to end right up to where we begin in a new hope as much as possible even if there was still 18 years till we get there.

The thing with the games is why ea should be stripped of the licence for the games. The new one looks cool but I'm expecting them not to learn their lessons from the horrendous battlefront games.

I've always thought that Palpatine could use the darkside to stay young and keep a consistent look, but he was damaged by the Sith Lightning pushback from Windu, which is something he couldn't repair, but he could maintain.

The Boba Fett movie was never actually announced as being in development, and neither was the Obi-Wan movie. Honestly, I think all the Boba Fett film rumors were more tied to this show than anything else.

But also, Kathleen Kennedy has no idea what she wants to do with the franchise. That’s what gives.

I have from a reputable source that the Boba Fett idea was originally Lucas's waaaaaay back when Cartoon Network did the Clone Wars 2D animated shorts. The idea was originally for a TV series. He even approached Genndy Tartakovsky (producer of said CN shorts) with the idea.
I think The Madalorian is just the evolution of that idea.

I also think Kennedy has an idea of what she want to do with it, I just don't think anyone else wants her to do it! :-x :lol:
