  1. For those who didn't hear the news, Disney has announced that they have another 15 years of Star Wars movies planned.

  2. @ZakoBattledroid I enjoyed the duel actually. My initial reaction was a bit angry, because I was so shocked at how short it was after that build up, but after having time to think about it, I came to accept the fact that it was an enjoyable duel when all the factors are put together. Would I have preferred a longer duel like we're used to? Yes I would have, but that being said, I still liked this one. This was a more realistic version of what a duel would look like, and when Kenobi changed to Qui Gon's old form, I found that to be an amazing scene. Kenobi changing to it to honor his Master after all these years, and Maul probably thinking that it would be an easy kill, just like how he did to Qui Gon. But Kenobi's technique of remembering the mistake of Qui Gon after this whole time, and adjusting his form to put a quick end to Maul, was rather wise. For me personally, it was one of the factors that showed how much he has developed from the Clone Wars, being in isolation all these years. I think the best moment of the whole episode, was the ending after that with Maul in Kenobi's arms. That moment of connection they had was really unexpected for me, and Maul's final lines of "He will avenge us." kind of hit deep. I wonder if at that moment, he realized that it was essentially a waste of his life to be going after Kenobi. But I read somewhere that Darth Sidious actually taught him how to live on, survive, and gain power by focusing his hatred on a single thing or individual. I wonder if that's a teaching he couldn't let go, and was in a way forced to live by for the rest of his life? That may explain why he was still determined to go after Kenobi, even after all these years.
  3. @ZakoBattledroid I suppose it went well, but I felt as though it was rushed. I get that Ezra couldn't really be involved with Kenobi too much, but it's just that I was expecting so much more, you know? I really wanted to see him talk about his past, the Clone Wars, or Anakin, heck, even a mention about Rex maybe. It was still an alright scene though, the encounter with Maul for sure made up for it. I know there are a lot of mixed feelings about the duel, what were your thoughts on it?
  4. @ZakoBattledroid What did you think of Ezra's encounter with Obi Wan?
  5. I noticed that too, the guy seemed so baffled as to what was happening, it was hard to believe that he was a soldier, or an experienced one anyway. If memory serves correct, I believe that the A Wing Starfighters were designed for more speed, over protection? But still even if that was the case, it seems rather odd that a few blaster hits would destroy the entire ship, unless there was some sort of weak spot that we don't know of. I was happy to see the Tusken Raiders again, it was a good nod to the movies since were only saw them there, and in a couple of comics. Is it just me or is the scene where Chopper and Ezra almost split up another nod to the movies, when R2D2 and C3P0 parted ways as well? I dunno, that scene just brought back the memory of that.
  6. That's an interesting perspective, I was too focused on the main part of the episode with Obi Wan that I didn't look at the intro like that. I essentially agree with you fully on Ezra's stupidity and that of the Ghost crew as well. I'm surprised that Kanan didn't take Ezra's side in the matter, he just kind of stood there and did nothing. When a holocron acts up as it did and summoned Ezra, how much more clear can it get that a message is trying to be relayed?? I doubt that a Jedi holocron, an item of the Force, would just randomly do something like it did at the beginning of the episode. It irritated me that Hera referred to it as "a broken recording", this isn't some hologram from an R2 unit for crying out loud. And how did Kanan not saying anything when she said that? I would have thought he would be smart enough to at least consider the fact that something is going on before dismissing it so easily. I understand Hera' desire to keep Ezra around and prepare for the big attack on Lothal, anyone in her position would want everything to as smooth as possible, especially when they are facing such a large threat, but that has blinded her to the fact that Maul is, and has been an equally large threat. The point is, that the holocron's message and strange behavior was not something they should have let go lightly, despite the preparation for the Lothal attack. I'm kind of glad that Ezra went ahead and made the journey to Tatooine, it was something that both him and Kanan should have been doing together at the very least. I get that the Rebellion is important, but sometimes I think that they forget that their primary duty as a Jedi is to bring balance to the Force. The threat of Maul is literally their job to handle, there isn't anyone else there who can handle a user of the dark side. And in their position, I'm surprised that they didn't jump at even the smallest chance to see if Kenobi is alive. To their knowledge, they are the remaining two Jedi in the galaxy, so I would be pretty keen on finding another Jedi, no matter how small the chance if I were them. They took the same risk when they thought Jedi Master Luminara was alive. Ezra going to Tatooine I believe was the right thing, but his mistake as you stated was that he had no plan. From what I saw, he for sure underestimated the brutally of the desert on Tatooine. As I saw him walking through the scorching heat and sand, what Anakin Skywalker said to Ashoka Tano came into my head as the two were walking through the same desert. "The desert is merciless, it takes everything from you." Only a Jedi would have such luck as to survive how he did, but it was still a workable story at the same time. Ezra most likely would have died, but Kenobi, (probably at this point, immensely strong with the Force) sensed his struggling and emotions, and knew it was because Ezra was searching for him, therefore he found his own way to the boy. It was a pretty smart plan of Maul actually, and I admire that. To use Ezra as a means to draw out Kenobi. I initially thought that Maul was going to slaughter the innocent, as he did all those years back in the Clone Wars as a way to draw Kenobi out.
  7. Did you know the Diego Luna from Rogue One (Cassian Andor) plays the main male leading character in Katy Perry's music video "The One That Got Away"? I just noticed it today while listening to the song and thought it was a fun little fact to share. He's also apparently going to be playing Scarface himself in the new Scarface movie that's supposed to release this year. 

  8. I'm itching so hard to have a discussion about the latest Rebel's episode, but don't want to spoil it for anyone so I'll wait. Who's watched the episode so far?

      I've watched it. And I agree that we should wait a little while in order for others to view it considering the content of the episode.

      @ZakoBattledroid I was too weak :') had to reply to @Skyguy501's post with my thoughts. Thankfully, he knows how to use the hidden content option unlike me, so spoilers for those who have not seen it should successfully be avoided.

  9. I have come to realize that the Gungan species have been given less credit than their due. Is it because of the character Jar Jar Binks? I don't know. But their kind is more intelligent than they may first appear to be. They've done numerous things, such as save the people of Mon Cala, the Jedi, and Clones from the occupation and enslavement from Dooku and Riff Tamsen. They also were responsible for the capture of General Grievous on Naboo, something that the Republic had been trying to do for the majority of the Clone Wars, and failed to accomplish.

    The droid that saved the galaxy. Maybe he was the chosen one instead of Anakin Skywalker. :P

  11. So there's a new Star Wars Darth Vader comic coming out, and it's taking place just after the events of Revenge of the Sith. We get to see Vader's beginning relationship with Sidious, how he adjusted to his suit, and more. Can't wait for this one. 

    Also, the first line of the Last Jedi of what Luke says to Rey has been leaked. I tried to avoid it but sadly was not able to as someone spoiled it. :/

      In my honest opinion I think they should be bringing in more characters like Doctor Aphra. Have you read Doctor Aphra yet @Sk8rkid28?

    3. Sk8rkid28

      Sk8rkid28

      @Sith Lord Cookie If memory serves correct, she's the woman who was recruited by Darth Vader to aid him in his secret ongoing missions that were for his own personal gains, and against the Empire correct? Yes I remember now, she was a great character. I didn't know that she has her own comic series? If so, I'll have to for sure read it. 

    4. Sith Lord Cookie

      Sith Lord Cookie

      Yes Correct, and yes she has her own comics series and it's awesome. Sadly its the only thing in canon that kind of explains the origins of the Jedi.

    Thought this edit was very well made, love this video.

    The scene in the end where Slick speaks to the Jed is pretty deep and eye opening. As much as I love the Republic and Clone troopers, they really were enslaved beings. One of the things I admire about the CIS is that they use droids as their soldiers, and anyone else who is an organic being that fights in the front lines for them, does so willingly (such as General Whorm Loathsom). I mean, yes many of the Clones loved fighting for the Republic, but I feel as though they should have been given the option to leave the army if they desire. They're more like 'flesh droids' than actual beings with rights really. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a huge fan of the Clones, but I just find it wrong how they were forced to fight a war, have chips implemented in them so that they were forced to kill their Jedi leaders and friends, and overall basically being treated like property. 

    1. Skyguy501

      Skyguy501

      That's all they were in Palpatine/Sidious' eyes; assets or tools for his grand scheme. And then, when they've fulfilled they're "purpose", cast them aside without so much as batting an eye about it. Although, I do feel like the Jedi should have allowed the clones that form of freedom, the freedom to choose what they wish to become or to continue their service to the Republic.

    2. ZakoBattledroid

      ZakoBattledroid

      @Sk8rkid28 The clones are basically treated like property because they are the Republic's property. They were bought and paid for to fight and die on the Republic's behalf.

  14. So I just watched a video from the Youtuber Star Wars Theory that answers the question that has been asked many times by us Star Wars fans: Why doesn't Old Ben Kenobi remember R2-D2 in A New Hope?

    It is explained further in the novelization, and it turns out that Obi Wan does indeed remember R2. He just kept it to himself in front of the others. During the scene in the Millennium Falcon where Luke was practicing with his father's lightsaber, Obi Wan discretely called R2 over, and R2 went to him, as if he were his beloved pet. And as Obi Wan pet the top of R2's head, he said quietly to the droid, "It is good to fly with you again, my old friend."

    I love how that was incorporated into the novel, imagine how wonderful the scene would be. I just discovered this today, has anyone here known about this?

  15. Who watched the latest Rebels episode? I actually thought it was pretty good.

      Yes, it was very enjoyable to see Thrawn outwit his enemies through their art.
