#59761 Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

Posted by revan21 on 16 October 2017 - 07:21 PM

I respectfully disagree. Heir to the Empire is almost entirely from the perspective of the new Empire and Luke being abandoned alone on a dangerous mission. He never gathers a crew nor ends up on the Chimera (Thrawn's flagship) to rescue anyone. The New Empire doesn't even rely on Superweapons but rather on secrecy and superior maneuvering. The New Republic only wins because of dumb luck (Leia not being discovered by Thrawn and his misinterpretation when he finds out she was there) and because Luke saves another super powerful force user who may or may not be more powerful than himself.

The Thrawn Trilogy had an entirely different tone with large space battles and technology its biggest ties to even being a Star Wars series.

While I would love for them to be adapted as the New Trilogy, IMHO Disney has made it clear that the sort of exposition and characterization from Zahn's writing would be far too complex for their far more polarized view of character and story.

I'd argue that many people who know the story would be unhappy with the adaption or say that Disney is just making money of Zahn's works because their story team can't come up with something of  their own or whatever. The Thrawn Trillogy just wouldn't be good start for this new generation of Star Wars movies.

Maybe we'll see a movie about it if Legends Nostalgia becomes profitable ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yay. Let's disavow the EU, then bastardize the crap out of it and re-release it as something new and original!

<shudders>

Disney sucks.

I don't really get what this has to do with Episode 8 lol
 
I think the trailer was cut just be misleading, especially the moments when Kylo is about to blow up a resistence ship and the end with Rey and Kylo. It still had a lot of shots that made me very exited for the movie.

Well, that is certainly a real possibility that Snoke's past is connected to this era in the new canon as well as Luke's original Jedi temples (which probably dates a little earlier than this era though). I just feel as though there is too much nods to the old republic era for it not to be made canon or altered to be made canon.

Well they definitely won't be like "Okay, Kotor is canon again even tho it goes against stuff we established through other media". It's probably gonna be like it was with Thrawn and i'm okay with that.

Definitly the Eclipse !

Just imagine this giant Super Star Destroyer jumping out of hyperspace over your homeworld. It would be the ultimate act of terror.

This thing could ram other spaceships without taking damage, had a laser canon that was just slightly weaker than the Death Star and was the personal flagship of the Emperor.




#53073 Worst Star Wars Conspiracy Theories

So I guess that stasis clone had a gender change, replaced fett and later joined the first order as cpt plasma?

We never saw Phasma without armor and her voice could be changed through her helmet, like Kylo Ren. Kix surfaced just a few years before TFA, so it's unlikely that he took on the role of a bounty hunter that died 20+ before he came out of his stasis pod.




#52950 Worst Star Wars Conspiracy Theories

Posted by revan21 on 28 January 2017 - 11:20 AM

I mean, think about it. They're both bald. They both wear creepy brown/black cloaks; it's the only possible explanation. 

The only thing that speaks against this genius theory is that Mace lost his hand when Anakin hit him and Snoke still has both hands. But that just confirms my theory that Mace Windu survived and got a new organic hand when he was captured by the Yuuzhan Vong.

 

(Off topic in regards to Nihilus: Force Drain could be resisted and without that Nihilus is just an above average force user. I've seen this in many YouTube videos, so I don't know how credible that info is since most channels don't site their sources. Wookiepedia also says that he only lifted the Ravager from the gravity well of Malachor V. Nihilus was by no means the most powerfull Sith, that title always belonged to Sidious because he had a lifetime to study everything the dark side had to offer and in the end was able to return from the dead. And no character can match the overpowerednes that Luke or Abiloth achieved in the EU.)




#52913 Worst Star Wars Conspiracy Theories

Posted by revan21 on 27 January 2017 - 08:56 PM

Is it though? I could accept a case of mixed identity if done right, but introducing time travel into a universe that doesn't already have it is especially egregious

I think it's horrible because it makes Darth Vader's redemption in the original trillogy completely worthless. The Prequels would then also fail to show Anakins fall to becoming Darth Vader since it just isn't the same person.

Time travel was actually possible in a way. There was a Legends story in which a Sith Warship from the Great Hyperspace War appeared in the time after ROTJ. The crew was then defeated by Jaden Korr, the main character of Jedi Academy. Their time travel was linked to their hyperdrive being sabotaged. But I don't think anybody ever travelled back in time. The theory that he is Kylo is still on a whole new level of bullcrap.

I think you should give up now. Even if he does turn out to be a completely new character, he is essentially a Palpatine stand-in.


I can't decide which is worse.

Snoke is a time-traveling Kylo Ren

Snoke is a character from Rebels or The Clone Wars

Snoke is the real Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader was just a clone of Anakin is by far the worst. 




#52716 Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

Posted by revan21 on 25 January 2017 - 05:00 PM

Smoke can't be plagueis, he is obviously a time travelling kylo ten from the future LOL. Most of these theories I have read were ridiculous and not compelling at all

Thats not even the worst one. I saw a video that claimed that he was the real Anakin Skywalker and that Darth Vader was a clone. No kidding. Must have been a slow month for Star Wars channels on YouTube. 

I just want him to be an original character.

 

Just saying that if Snoke really was Plagueis and it's supposed to be a big reveal, I doubt Pablo Hidalgo would come out and admit that Plagues was not in fact killed.

 

As far as Snoke = Plagueis, it may be the number one theory, but the other theories are garbage. I doubt Snoke's identity will be that big of a reveal anyways

Interesting, that never crossed my mind. But even if Snoke was Plageuis it would be wierd that Hidalgo would make it so extremely clear that Plagueis died. 




#52709 Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

Posted by revan21 on 25 January 2017 - 03:44 PM

Looking it up is not hard, but reading every line of the source material they used to populate the wikI is. From a business perspective, hiring a team to ensure continuity between all the overlapping story lines would be insanely convoluted, and that is where the controversy would start, by people arguing over what to cherry pick and what not to cherry pick to include in the canon. So they took a machete to the overall plot in the extended universe and that was that.

 

I think when they put out tweets and "confirmations", take it with a grain of salt, plus its getting to the point where they want so bad to be original they change things around, but yet keep them the same, because they keep having to go back to the original movies and characters, this makes the execution of it terrible. It is kind of funny really "oh we are doing something original" and then they go play the same notes and beats in episode 7 only not as good or compelling as in episode 4. "no we're not doing that" but then they go and do it anyway. "we don't want to copy or gain inspiration from any of the old material" but yet again they do just that. At this point they are not even the slightest bit convincing. I think the fan base could actually come up with better material than they could at this point.

Disney really needed a clean slade for the sequels. The Star Wars novel craze that followed "Heirs to the Empire" in the 90s and the following interest in the EU left no room for any movies set after Episode 6 that include Luke, Han or Leia.

Pablo Hidalgo is the person that decides what material should become canon or not. The movie directors and anybody who writes the storeis for the novels and comics has to consult him about the stuff they want to add. He is the number one source for informations like that. 

The reason why Episode 7 is so ,uch like Episode 4 is because it was the first movie of this new era of Star Wars. I can't even imagine the pressure JJ Abrams had on him while writing a sequel to one of the biggest, most iconic movie franchises in the world. Until now there is no indication that Episode 8 is doing the same thing 7 did and that should make us hope that Rian Johnson is trying something new after Episode 8 was such a huge success.




#52658 Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

Posted by revan21 on 24 January 2017 - 06:25 PM

Philosophy s change over time. If that were the case, Luke would be no more a Jedi than Rey would be. He never really followed the Jedi code to a t, he did what he believed was right (he even uses dark side powers in rotj) As for snoke and kylo, I believe JJ confirmed kylo not to be sith. Nothing was confirmed or denied about Snoke. Even if he is not Sith, he follows similar ideal's from what has been shown about him and Snoke still hungers for power

Luke would be last known person in the galaxy that has been trained as a Jedi. Even if his believes were different from what Yoda and Obi-Wan had told him, he would still be considered a Jedi. Most people would call him a Jedi regardless because the general public seems to know next to nothing about the Jedi Code anymore by the time of TFA.. Even the Rebellion and it's heroes are legends by then.

It would make little sense for Snoke to be a Sith and train his apprentice(s) as something different. Their goals and ideals are probably similar, but I strongly believe (and hope) that they are a new kind of dark side religion. Having the Sith as the main bad guys for another trillogy would be kinda lame. Disney also shys away from the prequels at the moment and these movies established the Sith Order to the main audience of Star Wars. (I know that it was mentioned in the original trillogy but nobody really knew anything about them other than Vader being the "Dark Lord of the Sith" until the prequels)

Right. And if you ask Kreia, neither was Vader or Revan.

I don't get what this has to do with anything. Kreia is a Legends character, her views don't matter when it comes to the Knights of Ren, as they are a part of the Canon timeline.




#52564 Will The Old Republic Era be Re-Canonized?

Posted by revan21 on 23 January 2017 - 02:30 PM

- Revan has a Black figurine, which apparently Black figures are typically only canon characters
 

I wouldn't put too much hope behind that. I think Hasbro has held votes for Legends characters to get a Black Series figure. I believe Jaina Solo is actually next, but don't quote me on any of this.

 

 

I personallybelieve that the Old Republic stuff is going to be changed a bit and then introduced piece by piece in Rebels or mentioned on the side in other media (Like the new Darth Maul comic).  I personally really hope that Revan's and Meetra Surik's stories end beter than they did in Legends with Surik getting stabbed and Revan turning into pure fanservice for SWTOR.

#50124 Armor Mod Compatibility

Posted by revan21 on 13 November 2016 - 08:04 PM

Thanks a lot for that extensive reply !

I might pass on Armored Robes now that I know what it replaces. The description made it unclear to me what the mod actually does. So if I leave that mod ou,t I can use the other robe mods, right ? I just did a quick test by extracting the files from the Prequel Robes, Movie Robes and Jedi Armor into the same folder to see if they replace the same files and I got no overwrite messages.
