>Disney has announced plans for a new Star Wars themed hotel that will allow fans to live out their dreams in a galaxy far far away. The hotel is set to open in 2019 as part of an expansion at the Disneyland resorts in Florida and Anaheim that is exclusively themed around the Star Wars universe.

>The ‘immersive’ experience will reportedly adopt a starship theme, allowing guests to become fully involved with the iconic fantasy universe. Describing the new development, Walt Disney’s resorts chairman Bob Chapek said: “It’s unlike anything that exists today.

>“From the second you arrive, you will become a part of a Star Wars story! You’ll immediately become a citizen of the galaxy and experience all that entails, including dressing up in the proper attire. Once you leave Earth, you will discover a starship alive with characters, stories, and adventures that unfold all around you. It is 100 per cent immersive, and the story will touch every single minute of your day, and it will culminate in a unique journey for every person who visits.”

iirc there was some lore explanation that sheev held back technological advancements in the galaxy. but besides that, cloud city looked on par with coruscant, tatooine didn't change a damn bit, and going by the newer ending for rotj, coruscant and naboo didn't change all that much. dumb niggers forget that it's only 30 years. also, relativity.

“Equality is a lie. A myth to appease the masses. Simply look around and you will see the lie for what it is! There are those with power, those with the strength and will to lead. And there are those meant to follow – those incapable of anything but servitude and a meager, worthless existence.”

~Darth Bane

“Equality is a perversion of the natural order!… It binds the strong to the weak. They become anchors that drag the exceptional down to mediocrity. Individuals destined and deserving of greatness have it denied them. They suffer for the sake of keeping them even with their inferiors.”

~Darth Bane

“Equality is a chain, like obedience. Like fear or uncertainty or self-doubt.”

~Darth Bane

“Do you feel it? Do you feel the power of the dark side? The only real power! The only thing worth living for! Do you feel invincible? Invulnerable? Immortal? Are you ready to kill a world?”

Reminder that in the true canon, Revan did literally nothing wrong

Except not putting down Malak's coup

41 posts and 18 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.



In other words not wrong at all. The MMORPG makes this a key chapter in the background exposition. All it did was settle the matter that Revan was corrupted by another character instead of getting a contact high from the dark side energy in the Star Forge, and it explains how he even knew that "The True Sith" were still out there in any meaningful capacity to begin with.



The Sith did nothing wrong

Source: Darth Bane's quotes


Reminder SWTOR is to be disregarded alongside disney's garbage and we'll never know what happened to Revan.




the only thing i like out of swtor revan shit is that they had revan and the exile team up. beyond that it was pure trash.



90% of that gets invalided when you invalidate SWTOR lore like most sane individuals do.

Boba Fett alive, yay or nay?

>gonna kill off Fett, because le prequels r bad

Kek, how many times is Disney going to shit the bed?


It'd be pretty stupid to just dispense with an easy source of merchandise prostitution like Boba Fett. I think they killed off Han in TFA partly because Harrison Ford is growing so old, but they've never shown Boba Fett unmasked. You can easily have him modeled using some vaguely kiwi dude and handwave differences in appearance from Jango's actor as an imperfection in creating a non-standard clone.

I feel sort of ambiguous about new Fett and Mandalorian things, though. Everything since Clone Wars has been pretty hit or miss, not that I support Karen Traviss' Fandalorian lore myself.


YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.


I have a library of comics showing Boba's life, but let's just say the old EU won't be considered.

There are many episodes in Clone Wars of Boba Fett running around. I doubt its about the character rather than it is that everyone in Disney can't make a strong male character anymore. It's just not possible for them as writers, I havn't seen one in anything they've been making.



It's not just a meme that only men can be heros, there is no ancient story from any society I know where there isn't a man who doesn't do something heroic for his people and or tribe.

>>tfw children will be raised against nature

>>therefore these children will rebel against it

I guess that brings warm feelings to my heart.

That proves that CIS is pretty accepting and diverse, allowing all spieces to join their battle for freedom.

All the diverse groups were being used for support against the Republic and because of their diversity they didn't get to know one another and just accepted those amongest themselves. This was deadly for them as one at the table namely the Sith wanted to bring their diversity together so that he could crush them all once necessary after their usefulness was spent.

The Emperor was preparing a fleet that could stand against the Vong but the Rebels essentially opened the gates for them by destroying this Empire. Such is the force, how many deaths did Yoda's lack of foresight cause? No wonder he committed suicide.



Do you not notice how much space is used for that huge ass feeding chute?

Let alone all that wasted hanger space underneath the dangling TIEs?

Well it did do something rather militarily useful in the meta-fiction: Stop fuckers from Jumping away.


>The Emperor was preparing a fleet that could stand against the Vong

So you are going to defend Lucas' simplistic film morality with the EU explanatory crap?



To me Star Wars was the expanded universe, the movies represented only a small part of the continuum. I'm glad (((Disney))) is killing it so badly within a decade it will be ours once again.




There's a scene at the end of the new "Thrawn" book where Sheev and Thrawn exchange dialog about it. Thrawn point blank speaks freely about super weapons being a relatively poor investment since they have to be transported from system to system compared to the relative mobility of capital ships and starfighters. Sidious just chuckles in Dark Side and insists that the psychological impact of his precious Star Destroyer will make a bigger fleet unnecessary therefore being cost-effective and preserving lives in the long run. Thrawn just kind of drops the subject.

Least - Force Commander, as is simply didn't work mechanically.

I always loved the concept of Star Wars: Smuggler. I'm not sure how it would have worked in practice but it sounded interesting.

Did anyone save the first part of the let’s play of Republic Commando by lead programmer Brett Douville?

It was removed from YT because of the John Williams score…

And yes, Brett appears to be a cuck (Stephen Colbert, Seth Myers, MSNBC), but I’d like to hear this perspective on the game.



>Expect to get a Mission romance despite Mission not even being sixteen

If she's old enough to go into battle with legions of bloodthirsty Sith and slice every computer in the galaxy, two things most adults can't do, she's old enough to decide for herself whose dick she wants.

That said, nu-Bioware would just fuck it up, and the same goes for nu-Obsidian. I'd rather they just leave KotOR as-is.

Only ever played a handful or so SW games, including two mobile games.

Been thinking about replaying KotOR I & II – I played them years ago, and I was too young to appreciate the complexity of KotOR II in particular.

Enjoyed the hell outta the first Force Unleashed on Xbox 360, and Republic Commando on PC. Should probably revisit those as well – including Force Unleashed II – ’cause there ain’t gonna be any new good SW games now that Disney is running shit.

I'm going to be honest here, the New Jedi Order is abominable. The first one by Salvatore was fine, it introduced the new concept adequately, but every book after that felt exactly the same. It's just one extremely drawn plot with a series of meaningless miniplots. it's awful. I can't go on with it, reading book after book and knowing that nothing major is going to happen yet also knowing that the Vong will eventually be defeated. This should have been a single well-written trilogy max. I mean they had so much potential, growing up I dreamed of reading this series, and yet it's the most stale and boring thing I've ever read.


File: 7a7d114c1b55244⋯.png (232.55 KB, 431x430, 431:430, 1009856.png)

Originally the series was meant to be written around 5 main novels, with everything else in between being filler like Shadows of the Empire. It goes: Vector Prime, Balance Point, Star by Star, Destiny's Way, The Unifying Force

Not sure if this holds up as a reading order though. Some of the better character driven stuff ended up in other novels. If there's a single book out of the entire series worth reading it's "Traitor".

Even so, it can be hard to get into the series nowadays because it was very much a product of its time (Empire fatigue, invincible protagonists, most stories before it being self contained).


File: 8d0b1182b3cd2dc⋯.jpg (156.01 KB, 600x922, 300:461, 15948.jpg)

I seem to recall some butthurt from people at Dark Horse, especially Randy Stradley, that the novel guys took full control over the whole Vong invasion thing. Lots of people were upset by the handling of the concept, the edgy nature of the Vong and killing off Chewie & Anakin Solo.

The Invasion comic series was decent. Too bad it never finished.
