How do you think Disney will fuck up the continuity this time? Maybe Obi-Wan will go on an amazing adventure across the galaxy instead of watching Luke like he's supposed to, and maybe there will be Darth Vader padding scenes to please the normalfags at the expense of cheapening their confrontation in the original film. Maybe they won't even cast Ewan McGregor because of prequelphobia.

1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


I don't think they'll cast Ewan - they are terrified of reminding people of the prequels, so they'll go to great lengths to avoid that.



but the rumors are heavily suggesting hayden christensen is in episode 8, not to mention he had a well-received reception at SWC this past year.



That makes less sense than putting hayden's head over older Anakin's ghost for Luke to see. And yeah I know the dumb reason why it was done



>put his head over

pretty sure george filmed hayden on a blue screen in jedi robes



Yeah I just meant it was digitally edited in.

> the only thing from that entire toy range that I've ever seen someone buy was the Krennic's Shuttle lego set

The big black Trapezoid, really?

As a plastic brick addict, I know Star Wars Lego Ships usually don't do to hot on retail, but that's usually a combination of the "Star Wars tax" on top of the modern Starship Models being fuck HUEG…

Still, Krennic's Shuttle was one of the weaker Models of the Rogue One release, being a weird custom version of the generic Imperial Shuttles with an awkward layout both inside and out.

Compare that to the U-Wing (which while not great was a HUGE step up from the Force Awaken's Resistance Troop Transport), the TIE Striker, and the lasted Y-Wing, I'm rather surprised that a "Good source of Black Plates" was the only ship you saw sold.

And that's just the STARSHIPS, unlike the Force Awaken, Rogue One actually got some pretty amazing ground vehicles in the latest AT-ST and the Imperial Assault Hovertank, on top of some rather nice army building Battle Packs.

The Last Jedi releases are looking way better as well, having not only a much improved First Order Battle Pack but a greater variety of ship sizes other than X-wings and the Millennium Falcon.

Only real bad looking one of the bunch is the weird ass Strandbeest/AT-ST hybrid, and that's probably due to the same fuckery that gimped the wings on Kylo's shuttle,

Yeah, lots of people complain because latest model is far smaller than the first or second iterations, but in my opinion it's far more sturdily built and nails everything it needs to have.

I'm about 10 chapters in. I haven't been slapped with any obnoxious polemics yet, but I'm starting to wonder how the Empire made it even two decades if selfishness and corruption was the norm rather than the exception among Imperial officers. Christie Golden has clearly either read some of the new (((canon))) books or been given Cliff's notes and there are some clever Easter eggs for the lore spergs like me.

The pacing, though, is often awkward. It apparently takes place during and between events of some of BEAttlefront 2, so big swathes of action are omitted for the reason I assume that you can play through them yourself in the single player campaign.

I like that every character has logical rationalizations for why they're doing the things they are and it makes it seem reasonable to hope for Imperial successes in a more nebulous, morally grey framing. What I don't like is my worst prediction coming true that the main character suffers from boring daddy issues.

Ord Mantel, despite my worries considering I'm allergic to the tetanus vaccine, is my favorite. It's a massive Junkyard that's more than likely full of adventure and more importantly VALUABLE SCRAP.


I really love Korriban. The planet was underwhelming in SWTOR(like everything else) but I could explore tombs as in KOTOR for weeks

I love that ancient atmosphere



Uh, don't you mean Moraband?



Isn't that a different planet in the same system?



nope, george had the name changed for its entry into the clone wars. its "canon" name is now moraband.

>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.”

They need a reference model as well as concept art to see what it will look like in 3D, and in some cases for the actor/actress to be able to have an idea of what they are reacting to and where.

The latter doesn't have to be as detailed though.



i get what you're saying, but it's constantly sourced that all clones were digitally created, that there is no model it was based off of or anything like that. i've seen a lot of bts pics and never saw any clones in them, just things like their tech.



The Clone Troopers in RotS were done with motion capture by US marine/soldier, and partially by the Jango Fett/Clone Trooper actor, for scenes where you see the face, similar to how, for example, the Iron Man films were done: The actor's head and a digital body.



yeah i know, i've seen the bts photos of temuera in a blue suit and the other guys in full body suits.

Don't worry RPG's don't apply to the woman demographic (((their))) obligated to go after.


Yeah we at /sw/ would have to make it if we wanted it. I have the know how as I was in the industry for ~7 years, moved onto scientific graphics programming now. Also I'm sure there is enough old lore autists for art and inserting nuanced philosophy into it. Problem is that there'd be no money for hours worked, doubt even donations, probably bring in Disney's lawyers because mod tools in a Star Wars game would kill EA's crap.

Oh well as more and more real Star Wars fans fall away you'll see it in their future artworks, now just futuristic metaphysical space stories.



>Yeah we at /sw/ would have to make it if we wanted it.

Well there is that "Revenge of Revan" mod that's supposed to basically be just that?



Yeah mods for all old engines are great and all but not having an open one makes adding new features and modes difficult. KOTOR's engine didn't even have 3D collisions for characters.



not that guy, but if we can develop something on like, UE4, it could be done.

“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.”

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

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.

>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

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.
