Though, I think you could probably Edit the prequel trilogy into 2 movies and have a much better experience...maybe even 1 really long movie. 

I'm pretty sure somebody already did that.
I'm kind of a snarky bastard.

Saw seven last night.

Episode One was better.  Seven needed more Jar Jar.

That's a strange ordering (Phantom Menage not being last), but you've got the first half with what most would say. My ranking:

5 > 7 > 6 > 4 > 3 > 2 > 1

Read the stuff on Reddit about Darth Jar Jar. Trust me, using that head cannon the prequels are truly amazing.

I'll try to see star wars Monday when I return.

I read that Darth Jar Jar and was seriously hoping Disney embraces the funny man because he is the most Disney out of all things Star Wars.

This post points out that Anakin and Rey have a "gift" for languages: "There is even a deleted scene in the original trilogy DVD’s that shows Anakin speaking droid, something unheard of in the Star Wars universe."

Has anyone noticed that Anakin's and Rey's first line of dialogue is in another language:


Quote
WATTO: (subtitled) Coona tee-tocky malia? (What took you so long?)
ANAKIN: (subtitled) Mel tassa cho-passa... (I was cleaning the bin like you...)

* * *

Quote
REY: Tal'ama parqual!
 
[The Teedo and BB-8 STOP, GO SILENT, turn to her.]
 
REY: Parqual zatana!

A half beat and the Teedo YELLS SOMETHING BACK, threatening. BB-8's head swivels to him, then back to Rey, like watching a tennis match. Rey angrily moves to them, pulling a knife from her pouch. Rey starts CUTTING BB-8 out of the netting. The Teedo freaks out, YELLING. Rey suddenly stands, turns to the Teedo and says, fiercely:
 
REY: NOMA.
 
The Teedo barks a sort of "AHHHHH!" (As if to say, "GO TO  HELL!"), Then heads off on his beast. This prompts BB-8 to start BEEP-YELLING at the departing bully, provocatively.



Watto is always going AHHH every other line. Did JJ crib that bit as an homage parallel or as a hint about Rey's lineage?

I kinda rolled my eyes when I first heard the "punch line" from Luke. Though I do kinda hope that means he found Ahsoka and they formed a but of a new post-Jedi order of non-aligned force users.

To me it sounds as if it's two completely seperate lines stuck together.  I think it's a complete red herring.

The real Star Wars thing that's worth getting excited for is the TCW finale, the seige of Mandalore being brought to the big screen. I have a rough idea of the plotline for this one and holy ****, based on this scene they released for it it's going to be absolutely incredible.


Disney seems to be referring to the new season as season 6 which would mean they're technically part of the same season as the Lost Missions. A big part of the lost missions stuff was some of the Order 66 stuff starting to come to light through various circumstances so it honestly makes a lot more sense to end the series at that point in time than to have the Jedi council just twiddling their thumbs even though they know there's something up with the clones for another two seasons which was the original plan before Disney bought star wars. It's also incredibly fitting that the seige of Mandalore will now be a part of season 6 instead of season 8 because the Seige of Mandalore ends with Order 66 being enacted against Ahsoka because as we know from the Ahsoka novel, Seige of Mandalore takes place during Revenge of the Sith.

Either way I am massively hyped for the return of TCW.

I don't care what the seasons are called, as the "show order" is not even in chronological order. I just want all of the remaining episodes that were planned to release now. It may not quite be all of them since this is being called seaspn 6. Also, it makes me wonder what will be happening to the "lost" S6 episodes that Netflix partially funded after the show was cancelled. Hopefully that just means all of the episodes drop on D+.

The new batch of 12 episodes and the 13 lost missions ones form 25 episodes total which isn't too far from the other seasons which had 22 episodes each so I suspect they'll just all be considered part of season 6.

The thing with these 12 episodes is that they focus mainly on Rex, Ahsoka, and to a lesser extent Anakin who are basically the three main characters for TCW (or the closest thing TCW has to main characters anyways.) This feels like more wrapping up the main storyline than anything but I could see a few extra batches of "Lost Missions" type storylines coming along to wrap up some of the other loose ends TCW left behind but a lot of those stories were released as Comics or Novels so it's hard to say for sure if they'll be willing to redo them as animation, especially considering how expensive TCW was getting to produce. Than again Bad Batch was released already as a story reel and that's a part of the new set of episodes (although that also means they only have to finish it's animation.)

The issue that TCW has is it's budget. As I mentioned in the other thread George Lucas was basically personally bankrolling TCW and he was willing to put more than a million dollars per episode for the animation alone towards the end. Lucas apparently saw TCW as a bit of a pet project more than anything and was more than happy to lose a ton of money on it but Disney doesn't exactly share that willingness. They might be willing to hemorrhage some money to get some people on the Disney+ bandwagon and win some much needed goodwill with the more hardcore Star Wars fanbase but Disney is pretty much only here for the money.

We might see a few storylines released basically standalone (probably even using the lost missions banner) but I suspect this will be the last time Disney will be willing to do a full series of any kind.

I believe the Lost Missions were just finished episodes that Netflix got the streaming rights for. They might have financed a bit of touch up work but that's about it.

Just finished watching the Clone Wars for the first time last night (thank you Disney+).  Holy Damn.  I had no idea it was so good.  So much attention to detail, so many interesting stories, and they actually got Liam Neeson back to voice Qui-Gon.  I do love me some Mr Neeson so I was ecstatic when he turned up completely unexpectedly.

I genuinely felt my heart breaking when Ahsoka was being framed for the bombing, poor girl just trying to prove her innocence when more and more "evidence" keeps piling up against her.  Then when she walked away from the Jedi order.  *sniff*  It was far more emotional than I expected it to be. 

Conveniently enough season seven is just over one month away, available on D+ from the 17/02/19.  I am most excited.

Yeah, that is one of the most powerful arcs in the series. I'm re-watching the series in chronological order myself in anticipation for the new season. Then I'll move on to Rebels so I can close out that part of Ahsoka's story. I highly encourage people who enjoyed TCW to Rebels. Even just the highlights involving Ahsoka. It has a lot of good moments.

Finishing off the Clone Wars series was the #1 reason my kids wanted D+, as it had been pulled from Netflix before they could see the (so far) final season. They loved it, and I agree that it was a solid series.

Since then they've moved on to watch Rebels, and I watched a bunch with them. Gotta say, though... it just hasn't captured our interest in the same way. Still good and worth watching, even if a little bit less compelling for whatever reason.

Yeah, I blame Disney wanting to "DisneyXD" the show for the drop all around quality in Rebels, but it still has merit. It gives us more Hondo too which I will always appreciate (despite him not quite being his former self).

Started watching Rebels.

Not about ten episodes in and enjoying it quite a bit thus far. Ezra is quite annoying but he looks like he's starting to sort himself out.  Hopefully that continues.

I very much like the whole crew.  But MVP for me without a doubt is Chopper.  He is probably my favourite droid, equal to BD-1 from Fallen Order. Such sass and attitude is most enjoyable to watch.
