>>2250 >That reasoning is flawed, since neither Hitler nor Caesar orchestrated the war that allowed them to raise to power, also Palpatine is clearly a better stand in for such characters than Darth Vader, who is just an enforcer for such a person. Does it matter in-universe whether the conditions the led to Palpatine's were his doing or some matter of external force? Neither the PT or the OT are meant to be straight allegories of real world events rather than being applicable to them while still being their own thing. While the Empire had influences from Germany in WW2, in reality it is quite different and that design cue is merely one of a series of ingredients to the recipe of Star Wars. You can't even compare the Clone Wars or the GCW to the 20th century world wars anyway, as both were civil conflicts more closer to the American Civil War (the Clone Wars especially) than anything else. >Meanwhile the Clone Wars as represented by the Prequels and accompanying media fails to be Anakin's Vietnam or any other war. I could accept if they tried to make him some type of Achilles character, but the Anakin the Prequels gave us is a less cartoonishly evil version of a Joffrey Baratheon. I suggest you read the Jabiim arc of Star Wars: Republic if you want a war is hell story with Anakin at center stage. Anakin is meant to be a very troubled and flawed character, with his obsessive attachment to those he loves (his mother, Padme) leading him to be seduced by Sidious. It does not matter if he is likable as that is subjective-tier redditor swill that takes feelings as actual facts. What truly matters is that he is a CONSISTENT character and in the PT Anakin acts fairly consistent throughout. Anakin isn't "cartoonishly evil" at all, his flaws come from a very real and human place, which leads him to make a Faustian pact with Star Wars figurative devil figure. I think you are disappointed because you fell into the same trap many other Star Wars fans did and imagined Anakin as some PTSD-ridden Darth Rambo and got mad when it didn't match up to what was on-screen.
After seeing the Republic in the prequels was I the only one rooting for the Sith the entire time?
>>2260 it would be easier if the prequels could just be shifted back, but as you said, the gap of a single generation constrains this. that's why I thought of moving the clone wars further back relative to the prequel story. but then you lose other things, like the parallel between clone wars and Anakin's fall (akin to the civil war and Luke's rise), the tragedy of Padme (as you mentioned), etc. it seems like any decision you make requires sacrifices, and George's sacrifice was an insufficient interlude between III and IV.
>>2277 You mean the republic that was run by a sith chancelor?
>>2284 Sith weren't really in charge till they were elected democratically.

So in your opinion who is the biggest irritating disney shill faggot on youtube? I'd say Hello Greedo, Star wars Explained too. Their comments are full of soy-infused disneytards. Good news though is that their audience is tanking since TLJ compared to the 'fandom menace' youtubers according to this: https://disneystarwarsisdumb.wordpress.com/2018/12/28/the-decline-of-star-wars-youtube/

>>1776 Actually it seems to me like there's quite a few that make a living off shitting on nu-wars.
>>1776 Not focused, but still.
>>1776 There's Jensaraai1. He's been doing star wars videos for years and focuses on fights between different characters. He sticks with legends and hates the new stuff. Sadly his channel got hacked so he's trying to recover.
Do you think there are star wars youtubers who are trying to jump on the bandwagon by acknowledging TLJ was shit? There's this Generation Tech guy who seems to acknowledge TLJ was shit and is a human supremacist. He goes over miltiary strategies in Star Wars but he also did this one video where apparently Palpatine is a genius for the shit he did in ROS. I got mixed feelings on the guy.
>>2182 Whenever a successful strategy occurs copies tend to emerge. I'd say that case sounds like bandwagon jumping, but specifically for the earlier controversy and not the current realization that RoS is actively worse. its pretty funny that leaks showed that the scrapped pre-jew jew script at least was interesting, if another total characterization swap out again; unironically JJ is worse than just swapping directors for a trilogy twice. though disney wars basically forces that to get anything of value from most of their crap

>Disney/Lucasfilm open casting call for the upcoming 'Star Wars Untitled Trilogy: Episode I' >Walt Disney Pictures / Lucasfilm is now looking for new unknown actors to play the lead roles in the upcoming "Untitled Star Wars Trilogy: Episode I". Talented individuals from any area are being invited to perform video auditions for a number of roles, both males and females of any ethnicity. This new Star Wars trilogy is being created by Rian Johnson, who wrote and directed "Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi". Johnson is writer and director for this first film of the new Star Wars trilogy, with Ram Bergman serving as producer. Kevin Feige will serve as executive producer. This new trilogy will separate from the Skywalker saga and will explore new characters from an unexplored area of Star Wars lore. >This new Star wars trilogy is being created by Rian Johnson >Johnson is writer and director for this first film of the new Star wars trilogy, with Ram Bergman serving as producer.

>>1973 >hastily made KoTOR III with loot boxes and multiplayer That would be worse than no KotOR 3 at all.
>>1973 so SWTOR?
>>1987 Well SWTOR is semi decent. Or at least was. As far as I remember you could buy anything on the market you could get in loot boxes from a bit of grinding and being a subscriber meant free coins to buy loot boxes anyways. However free to play does suck complete ass with the limitations. what the fuck is up with captchas? They didn’t have them last time I posted a few hours ago.

I was just thinking about how sterile the sequel trilogy has been. It's like any form of romance or adult interaction has been removed or Disneyfied. Even the Finn/Rose "romance" in The Last Jedi felt forced and cringeworthy with an utter lack of chemistry. Look at Rey especially, she is played by an attractive actress inb4 xenomorph memes but we never really see her as a woman. Even on a desert planet, she is near fully covered, as if they were scared having Rey bare any skin would send the wrong message. She never flirts with any of her male cohorts despite being a young woman trapped on a barren shitheap for decades.

I know the inevitable response for anything like this is "but it's for kids!" or "misogyny!" but Leia's slave outfit or Padme's mid-riff and the romantic sub-plots of both trilogies didn't make those films any less family friendly or weaken it's female characters. It really just seems like Disney trying to sanitise the franchise to fit their "wholesome image". The most risque they've gone so far was Qira and Han in Solo, but for a grimy underworld story it still feels very tame and safe, though Emilia Clarke admittedly did look very elegant.

I would just chalk this up to me being a cumbrain but there's a wealth of normalfags "shipping" characters, especially "Reylo". People want romance and some eye candy in their adventure movies, to the point that they will just make their own if it's not being offered. What do you guys think? Am I on to something or am I being ridiculous?

>>1829 They should have just gone fulldegenerate and do a Nigger x Pilotdude gay ending like some people assumed. Then again, they wouldn't be able to edit that out which would mean less/no profit in some countries and they'd never risk their profit is such an obvious way. Why are some anons here so incompetent at formatting their posts?

Speaking of sterile, is it just me or are Rey's breasts flatter than usual? She looks more like a dude this time around than before.

Anyone into the toy aspect of Star Wars? Disney shit is clogging shelves so badly, its unbelievable that Star Wars toys made 2-3 years ago would ever clog shelves yet here we are. The few cool toys are quickly picked up by scalpers and listed for extortionate prices.

Since this is the best place to ask for it, what was the best line of figures that were released? Just want to keep it in mind in case I find any second hand.
>>1532 As far as I remember, it was either the prequel-era figures or the stuff hasbro put out right before the buyout/sequel trilogy. It seems the quality has been going back to those levels recently though.
>>1532 >Since this is the best place to ask for it Probably best to ask over on /toy/ instead. They even have a star wars toy thread
I haven't collected anything since 2013. Only thing I bought in the crappy Disney era was a Black Series Jaina Solo figure which honestly wasn't even that great. The re-releases of the old Kenner toys would be temping if not for the Disney logo on them keeping me from being able to pass them off as originals. I mean with a little fixing I could make them look like the real deal, but its just too much work to go through just for some pointless bragging rights.

So since we are obviously the TOXIC fandom, here is an example of the new beautiful nu-fandom disney wanted, and got. I suggest that this thread may be a dump for all this kind of bullshit, just to have a laugh at the shitshow, since it's all we can mostly get out of what is officially called Star Wars now.

>>1707 Finn is such a wimpy character across the ST that I think people would call him comic relief if he were a droid or a white man. Since he's a nigger, though, they have to pretend he's this super serious and important character who does nothing of real consequence after TFA (and is outright prevented from doing so in TLJ).
>>1710 Out of all the characters in TFA he had perhaps the biggest room for character development. The idea of a man raised from birth to be a stormtrooper with years of brainwashing and indoctrination abandoning the very organisation that raised him and is the closest thing to a family, all while discovering his own place in the galaxy could've been so good. We could've finally seen Star Wars through the eyes of an average joe, which the previous 6 don't show.
>>1716 Just repeating what the entire internet already said: They could have at least tried to make him a character who's conflicted between fighting against his former comrades doing what he thinks is right. Instead they made him an insane chucklefuck that goes "wooohooooo!" while shooting the people he grew up with.
>>1674 Why? Dogs are carnivores, carnivore meat usually tastes pretty bad, hence why we pretty much exclusively eat herbivore meat. I’ve talked to a few hunters who’ve had bear meat and they all say it’s okay, but better the more fruits it ate. Why would you want to eat dog? I can’t imagine dog food makes the meat taste any better, even corn fed cattle tastes like shit compared to grass fed, and I’m sure that tastes better than any carnivore meat.
>>1717 They even retconned him to be a janitor too

>>1689 It was fucking annoying is what it was. Loud cacophony with ugly CGI.
there are some changes I like in theory, and others I don't. but my biggest problem with all Specialized changes is how they clash with the original aesthetic. the OT has an unmistakable late 70s/early 80s feel; adding 90s CGI on top of that inevitably comes off garish and wrong.
>>1681 >>1689 >>1690 >>1691 >>1697 na.. na.. na.. AH LAWAH! KOO NEE TANG!
>>1689 It's horrible. >>1690 It was a pretty mediocre scene in the theatrical version, but it was in the background and added to the atmosphere instead of being this ostentatious performance.

Happy life day. I heard Jedi Fallen Order is actually good, I'm still not giving EA my monies. Just funny that EA is doing a better job at giving a SW story than disney.
>>1295 It was fine but the ending sucked, the characters except the inquisitor chicks are ugly as hell and game has Ilum destroyed and turned into Starkiller from The Force Awakens.
>>1298 > the characters except the inquisitor chicks are ugly as hell I noticed that, characters who are not aliens or have a mask on seems to suffer from weird CGI shiny pores syndrome and Oblivion grade potato faces.
>>1305 The wookiees are also ugly too. Their hair isn't even properly textured. Makes them look like they're made of wood with freaky eyes.

$374m worldwide, only $176m domestically, for their opening weekend. Not good for them.
We live in a year where a Godzilla movie did better at the box office than a Star Wars movie
