i think 'black dude' (john boyega) is supposed to be scared and on the run, rumours were that his character made some bad choices and is now regretting them. also stormtrooper gear would definitely be sweatier than desert people gear.
you should be more pissed at the people getting arsey that the first person seen in the star wars trailer is a black guy.

For a teaser trailer I am definitely teased. Cool rolling ball droid. New light saber. Refined X-wings. Motherfucking Millennium Falcon. Fuck yes to all of it.

Looks like everyone is trying really hard not to like this, to seem like they are more of a fan of Star Wars than everyone else.

Title: Re: New Star Wars trailer.
Post by: Prodigal Son on December 09, 2014, 02:18:54 PM
The cartoon is all about the war between the republic and the separatists. It shows personality and depth the clones. There are a bunch of insignificant encounters of worlds you haven't heard from and there are others like the Dathomir witches. That species where Darth Maul is from. It all seems canon and is worth it to me to get into the little intricacies. Plus, Anakin is not the forced emotional moniker ep II and III are.

Then, there is the new one; Star Wars Rebels. That, I have no clue of.
Title: Re: New Star Wars trailer.
Post by: GSUSHC on December 10, 2014, 04:48:05 AM
looks to me like theyve made a totally different feeling Star Wars than any other judging from the trailer. It looks like the equivalant of a much darker reboot like the Christian Bale version of Batman.

Post by: DAKINS on December 11, 2014, 02:48:33 PM
Hey, I still watch old shows from my childhood, don't get me wrong.  I just feel the original Clone Wars show is 100000000000000000000000 X better than the episodes of the newer one I managed to get through.  They can tell a great story with no dialogue and don't have that lame 1930's announcer doing narration.  It's probably the whole Samurai Jack feeling the series has that I love so much.


Also, I like having contact with females so I'll pass on Star Trek.

Clones aged faster than a normal person. By the time of A New Hope almost all of the clones had died off and were replaced with Volunteers and draftees.

Jedi were mostly wiped out after Order 66 in Revenge of the Sith. Those that survied went into hiding.

Luke is in the trailer, he's the dude with R2. They're saving the real reveal for the movie.
Title: Re: New Star Wars trailer.
Post by: Prodigal Son on October 20, 2015, 11:08:06 PM
Do you think the Caminoans stopped cloning after Revenge of the Sith? Because between order 66 and this is the equivalent of Luke's lifespan. If that's true, let's say that a clone's life is n/2 where n=average life of a Mandalorian, then we can assume that at the end of A New Hope the Caminoans would have had had produced another population. This seems logical because if the whole population of clones died from age, they would have to have the next series immediately ready. Having separate populations of clones ready at the half life of their previous series allows the stability of the clone army. Knowing this, either they all dropped dead after discovering Ewoks or a second populace was ready when Luke was still bragging to Ben about shooting womp rats. If that's true, then that motherfucker in the trailer is a damn mutant. Mandalorians ain't got no time to compromise their unit with dam mutants.

I think the in canon reason is that Kaminoans just ran out of Jango DNA by the time the Clone Wars ended. I think I read that by the time of ANH about 5% of the storm troopers were clones. So, that mother fucker: Not a mutant.

I think in one of the Battlefront games Kamino created another clone army, but because of the new authoritarian rule they altered something in the DNA so the clones had complete loyalty to Kamino instead of the Empire. In response, the Empire sent veteran Clone Troopers (now Stormtroopers) to stamp out these new untested Clones. Once that was taken care of, Palpatine experimented with other DNA sources, but they never lived up to the original clones, so eventually they were fazed out.

But I'm not sure if the old Battlefront games are canon.

Today's trailer is weird

Just curious, what do you mean?

Pardon the late reply, I've been trying to put my finger on exactly what gives me that vibe about the trailer. I am looking forward to it for sure, and in context of the whole movie I probably won't get the same vibe the trailer does.

I still find pink, internal glow-engined X Wings to look weird (they are very clearly red with external corona in my VHS's of the OT), and lots of stuff on screen feels foreign, but if the pacing is fine then those things really don't bother me, even if they feel alien, like the PT did. In a short trailer though, they might be contributing to my feels, although I think it's something other than that too

Sorry for vagueness, but I didn't want to leave you hanging

I think TFA is the 2nd worst in the franchise.

Did anyone watch the Clone Wars cartoon series? There is an episode were Anakin, his padawan and Obi Wan are pulled to some crazy shit in the outer rim. Turns out to be super force family of a father, a daughter (who is light) and a son (who is dark). I wonder if Snoke is that character.

I see this argument often, and while I do understand that there are similarities, they aren't large enough that I'm bothered by them even a little bit. 

They wanted to make something that had the feeling of the original trilogy, and this accomplishes that.  They took aspects from all three originals and brought them into the new trilogy, it works without feeling like they just hired new actors to remake ANH.

Now, in the next movie, they can stray from that, and it will feel more like a natural progression from Jedi, instead of being completely different right off the bat, and then everyone is bitching because "it should have been more like the originals!!"

Also, Kylo Ren as a character was pretty much perfect.  He's exactly what Anakin should have been in the prequels.  He's a young, pissed off teenager who is struggling to find his place.  Now that he's had his ass handed to him and taught a lesson, we are left to wonder if he's going to come back stronger after removing his call to the light, or freak out and go on a murderous rampage at a moment's notice.  This is what you want in him as a villain, the unexpected.  You don't know what will happen from one second to the next because he is so unstable.

Nah, Obi Wan was abstinent gay. Remember Anakin's mom, Schmi, had other kids. The family Luke was descended from? She's gotta be some fucked up desert cousin inbreeding.

I'm not following your inbreeding theory, Anakin had no father, and his family tree went Schmi>Anakin/Padme>Luke.  Not a whole lot of room for anything, since only Luke and Leia were the only ones alive from that entire family.

I believe his Uncle Owen was the only other child Schmi had. He wasn't force sensitive, and also died without having any children, so I doubt Rey is any relation to that side of the family unless she is Luke's direct offspring.

I wanna say JJ Abrams really pushed the whole 'Rey Skywalker' thing a bit too much on purpose to mislead people cause if they're gonna follow the trilogy then there has to some big shocking reveal similar to Vader 'I am your father' dealio. It's gonna be harder to shock your audience unless a second time unless you mislead them to thinking something else. It's obvious that Rey's origins will play a big deal.

Uncle Owen had a side piece at Mos Eisley. Which turned out to be Schmi's sister. Were the elevated midichlorian levels were recessive on both Schmi's sister and her Nephew, Owen their progeny would have dominant recessive genes for elevated midichlorian levels.

The Organa family knew about this and sent her away to Jakku to protect her from that diddler Luke. If he diddled Rey, can you imagine the force sensitive mutant?!

The wife and I saw it again, this time at a drive-in. Was pretty cool experience for my first drive-in.

As far as, Rey origins, I think she's Obi Wan's grand daughter/Luke's daughter.

If you got a minute, this video brings up some good points on why they had to rehash some things from the OT

After seeing the film, everyone says she is Luke's Grandaughter, I think it is more plausible that she is Obi-Wan's, especially with the whole jedi mind trick scenes.

It's ~30 years since the death of Anakin. The math in the thought of a 20 year old being a grand daughter to Luke looks worse than the Skywalker inbreeding royalty theory and is revoluting. 

As for the Snoke Vader theory, that would be fucking sweet if the First Order was using an Anakin hologram to deceive and control. Unfortunately, Kylo was going to complete training with him so...

Did you use a broom to reach that?  haha

I feel as if the huge climactic death scene was the "I am your Father" shocker.
