As of today, /sw/ is under new management. Expect a very lazy but stable reign under my almost non-existent janitorial rule. And if you ever need some mentally stimulating EU novel info, don't be afraid to make requests.

Remember, serving your board is a great honor, so when Ep8 spoilers come out, make sure to spread em around and ruin the Disney nuSW experience for mindless normalfag moviegoers. U kulle rah doe kankee kung, you faggots.

Yea ID's for you are the best thing. That's perhaps because one would wonder who is who still if you just send them uniuqely with flags of the board.

so far the spoilers haven't revealed that, and most likely it would happen in the last film. think about it, they kill a classic character each movie for nostalgiabucks.



That would be the best thing for the series.

The harder new starwars dies, the more likely it will be that people simply stop viewing it as star wars.

Starwars died a long time ago. What we have now is some weird zombie.

Shoot it in the head guys. It's no longer the person you knew and loved.


OP here, confirming handshake.

i didn't get much time to talk to him, and totally forgot about him doing this.

i'll be honest, i'm enjoying this in the beta. it would be better if it had space assault and proper hero vs villains and no sequel trilogy shit, but i can live with the latter. my question is how much did they lose on the first that made them actually listen to the community this time around?

>>acquiring the game's source code

I don't know if that's how it works, I doubt Disney would be willing to part with their code so easily. It would be nice to get a code dump from Lucas Arts.



it's a 12 year old game, disney doesn't give a fuck about it.

>anything as bad as the prequels

I'll never understand this. Sure, comedic relief frog is dumb and Christensen's acting is more often than not off the mark, but the core of the prequels is master-padawan dynamics which I can't get enough of. And those were good, damn it. Maybe my bullshit tolerance is just too high in this case, I don't even know anymore.



A lot of idiots make the prequels out to be worse than they are. They're not good, but they don't ruin the entire series like some people think.



Really? I thought the Obi-wan/Anakin interaction was the weakest part of the prequels.



Kyle Katarn isn't an established look in the same way that the main cast of the movies are, but I expect that he enjoys nearly that kind of status among Star Wars fans who played the video games. I only played Jedi Academy when it was current and even I was broadly familiar with the character. There are many young adults today who were kids and teens playing those games when they were new that comprise a demographic to market toward. I feel like it's just laziness. That they expect they can rely on SW iconography to print money for them without lifting a finger in anything except new movies and spin-offs tied to them. It's the same confused approach that's making Marvel burn out so fast.



How so? It has both of them growing because of it, with the student starting to catch up with the master at certain points (when he's not too busy having his head stuck in Sheev's arse). Sure, OT didn't establish anything of the sort due to Luke and Obi-Wan not having nearly enough time, not to mention how little he could spend studying under Yoda, but isn't that how everything good in EU worked?

I remember watching TFA and thinking that Finn and Poe were supposed to be one character.



Bob Iger and the rest of the other head honchos at Disney at a hand in it as well. There's an interview I saw a clip of on YT, where JJ & Iger talk about making TFA, and Iger basically told JJ what he wanted to see & had the final say in what finally appeared on screen. This is what you can expect with a film made by committee with a diversity agenda/quota to fill.

I'd like to see the drafts/ideas George had for Eps VII-IX…




I actually heard a rumor that the script was edited like that to punish J.J. Abrams. Apparently he tried to sneak in making Fin the main character with piecemeal changes after Disney producers told him they wouldn't make a black man the real main hero because it wouldn't sell in the Asian market. When he tried to surreptitiously shove Rey and Poe further out of the spotlight, they ordered the minstrel show tropes get peppered in just to remind Abrams who has the biggest nose.

Probably bullshit, but it's a fun story I like to perpetuate.

IIRC it's fine to have a promising candidate as long as you make him and your current apprentice fight to death. And training your own apprentice is perfectly fine as long as you plan for his "graduation" to coincide with your own (i.e. killing your master) - if you fail then you were simply unworthy and your master would start training acolyte.




that's from the plagueis book, which is not in the jew canon.



Imblyink I care about the leboot.



Character evidence seems to suggest that Darth Sidious maintained a healthy respect for his antecedents while considering himself the apotheosis of their esoteric Darksiderism. Meta-knowledge, though, lets us remember that a lot of the junk written about his Dark underlings was established before anybody knew for sure what "Sith" were and there was a heroic amount of IP-splaining trying to keep the timeline halfway coherent.

No Sith spirits were ever invoked to whine about Sheev breaking the rulebook like happened to Darth Krayt.


It sort of changes depending on the writer. At first he was portrayed as just wanting to be King Shit for its own sake. Then he portrayed explaining that he had always planned on eventually ruling through the Dark Side and wallowing in it for eternity the whole time. Then it was use the Dark Side to defeat the Vong and maybe conquer their galaxy too. Now it's that making an Empire was only a means to an end and now that the great plan is taken care of it's time to use a galaxy's worth of resources to find out what the Dark Side can really do.

It can vary depending on who you ask with Vader too all the way from used to have real confidence in him to never gave a fuck and deliberately kept him gimped and now with him maintaining a friendly expectation of being overthrown if the Dark Side chooses so until the very moment shiny golden Luke is jingled in front of his eyes.


He wasn't the first Sith in Legends to do that and there's no proof it would be a major breach of conduct in Canon. He was at least a savvy hypocrite on the subject, though, since he read Darth Tyranus the riot act for even approximating what he'd done with Ventress.



>He wasn't the first Sith in Legends to do that and there's no proof it would be a major breach of conduct in Canon.

Yeah, I mean it is rather prudent to have something in the works when your eons long revenge plan is finally coming to fruition.

No point in keeping a low profile after you've won after all.

This. I don't care what Disney's shit canon is. I still consider The Bounty Hunter Wars novels to be the true canon when it comes to post-Sarlaac Fett.

Let's have a thread about planets. I've always loved how varied they are. In reality we've discovered some truly bizarre planets.

What are your favorite worlds in the Star Wars universe?

Pic related. It's Geonosis. I'm not a huge fan of desert planets though except Arrakis

I always had a soft spot for Corellia. It seemed like a perfect combination of nature and urban landscape, despite being an older world.

I know it was always over-hyped, but Kashyyyk also always appealed to me in all of its renditions. Lots of people think of Kashyyyk for its giant trees without realizing that said trees are a parasitic organism introduced to the planet for the purpose of lumber production, and that the shadowlands were pretty much a fucking cycle of death and despair where the Sith released their alchemical pets.


>Nar Shaddaa

Moon or not, that shit's an honorary planet.

Did Lucas actually have anything to do with their design? I'd assume that sort of task would have been left to an art or technical team


File: 46d924812d7c7c6⋯.png (747 KB, 800x521, 800:521, ClipboardImage.png)


On the prequels George had a dedicated art team making dozens of designs for props and costumes and then he would walk in and pick all the ones he thought looked right. I'm guessing he used a similar process for the original trilogy but I haven't read much about it.



Are there any descriptions in the scripts?

I would assume he would at least briefly describe the ships - maybe just a general outline perhaps..

>Was Han Solo really that cool? He was always my least favorite .

People think he is cool because he was an amoral scoundrel and jerk.

That pretty much sums up people. Same goes for the Tony Stark popularity. People love assholes and enjoy being shat upon.

Solo was actually a loser and a coward who learned humility in the story, but that's not what people like about him. They just like the loser jerk because that's what they identify with the most.

The han solo movie has apparently been heavily re-written and re-shot because the previous directors, who did lego movie, were making it into more of a comedy. This allegedly annoyed the writers and the disney higher ups.

What's funny is that, this movie sounded lame at first until I found out that it could have been a buddy comedy. That may have been the single thing that could've redeemed the movie in my opinion. The thought of a "cool guy star wars kid" movie coming out is sickening. Almost as sickening as a boba fett movie.



>Solo was actually a loser and a coward who learned humility in the story, but that's not what people like about him

That's what I liked about him…



it's a detail most people overlooked, and that's the problem.



forgot to add on that much like the kessel run being han running his mouth more than showing off his credits, people are stupid and take things at face value.
