The Big Star Wars Thread *SPOILERS ABOUND*

It was bollocks. TLJ was a clusterfuck but the high points were much higher and it was at least coherent, regardless what you think of the direction it took. It also at least attempted to go in an interesting direction even if they shat their pants and backed off in the end.

Revenge of the Skywalker was like watching a very generic videogame.

Man, I see new articles (or let's just be real and call them blog posts) every single day about new Star Wars discoveries or backstories and it makes the whole thing increasingly sad. And it was already pretty fucking sad.
"Revan from KOTOR is now canon!"
"When exactly did Palpatine have sex?"
"What do the Jedi actually stand for?"

None of this matters. It's not real, people. Star Wars isn't real. It never was. And I sure do hope a lot of people realise this before they finally figure it out when they're on their deathbed. This was perfectly exemplified in The Simpsons back in the mid 90s

Is this people's way of trying to breathe life into something that is already dead and should have been burried a LONG time ago?

ep 9 was way too big. JJ tried to make it the epic to end all epics when really they should've dialed everything back after 7 and 8. sure the B plot would've been the various side characters making some last stand/infiltration/takedown of the first order via some hijinks and lucky adventures but like....ffs man. secret sith planet with literally thousands of star destroyers as powerful as the death star? just ridiculous. the scale doesn't track at all. viewer can't even begin to fathom anything of the sort, especially when it's given approximately 4 seconds of screen time like EVERYFUCKINGTHING in this film. absolute shitshow of editing and pacing. there were a few good moments and scenes in there but just, this  trilogy is almost as bad as the prequels, just swung the other way. 'oh the prequels were boring eh? lots of politics and talking? didn't like that? well how about SEVENTY ACTION SETPIECES AND CHARACTERS IN TWO HOURS!!!!' should've really taken things down to the main characters, that's where all the drama is anyway. space battles are fun but like, the original space battles and even the prequels you could follow what was happening....

that said TLJ was still fucking dumber. i think? hard to compare honestly.

Well, it wasn't the worst Star Wars movie I've ever seen.

I actually quite liked TLJ, even if some of the dialogue was terrible. It had a better pace and actually tried some new shit instead of just being nostalgia porn.

Rise of Skywalker had the same problems that The Force Awakens had. The movie felt like JJ Abrams saying "Hey remember that stuff you liked about the original trilogy? Here's some more of it." I mean, that Palpatine reveal on the giant ship was basically the same reveal of Darth Vader being Luke's father. It's nearly identical. Plus the dialogue was fucking abysmal. That limp dick of a final fight with Sidious was laaaaame.

Finally saw RoS. I surprisingly liked it. It is maybe the best of the sequels? It felt like a funner though messier Force Awakens, probably because of the conclusive nature of the film. Rey actually feels like a tangible character with a personality. Finn and Poe's roles however felt disappointing, but I kind of expected as much.

Even though I enjoyed it, it still feels like the sequel trilogy is... optional. They went in without some kind of road map because MONEY and now we have a really fan fiction-y trilogy that instead of sticking to a vision, became this weird reactionary trilogy that changed it's mind every single film to the point where all three feel almost standalone and feel at times loosely tied together by a hand wave-y plot. I enjoyed seeing Sideous again, and Kylo Ren becoming good even if it felt way too sudden and contrived (and then like never speaking another word after he became good.... what was up with that).

Of course I think the Sideous thing as a plot overall could have been done much better by giving it more context in episode 7 and 8. TBH I would have been fine if they split episode 9 into two movies, since JJ basically kinda ignores large aspects of TLJ so it feels like more of a sequel to episode 7 than 8. There were rumors suggesting he wanted to do this, and I think since episode 9 feels so far left field of episode 8 it would have been justified considering the direction they went. There were so many things introduced in episode 9 that would have been better introduced in 8.

But despite all of that I felt JJ did well enough with what he got. I'm surprised he managed to stick the landing at all.

Taita Waikiki (famed director and actor) is rumoured to be directing the first non-Skywalker saga Star Wars movie with Kevin Feige helming...

I hope they take Star Wars in a new direction, and capitalize on what made the original movies so good - all the prequels and sequels have capitalized on nostalgia instead of creating new, weird things in the Star Wars universe that honor the past, but look forward.

Let's hope. While I'm sure he can make something interesting, I just know the Marvel humor injected into the last few films will still be a mainstay.

I hope the next trilogy will be about the old republic. I want to see the jedi and sith war.

That's supposedly where they're headed - 400 years before events in The Phantom Menace.

yup I think that's the only place they can go barring new lore to play with. Maybe there is another crazy jedi/sith war 1000 years after the movies.

Only issue I can see is the whole theme of 'balance' from the movies which require the context of the jedi/sith war. Then again Darth Treya was about balance and I'm sure she will pop up somewhere during old republic times.

I'd love to see a Rubin Farr movie, going from period to period in his life. He's lived 52 years so far, lots of unseen material to mine, mainly posting links and trailers rather than having opinions

HAHAHAHAHAHA1!!!!!!!!!!11!!1!!

https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Breast/Legends

Breasts were the mammary glands of mammalian species and some reptomammals, and were normally a distinguishing feature of the female of the species. Males did have breasts, but they were far less developed than their female counterparts due to the sexual dimorphism.

Biological role

In some cultures, sentient females nursed their own young. This was true of both primitive planetary societies like Dathomir, where the warrior-women of the Singing Mountain Clan would feed their children even during solemn councils of war,[1] and high-tech interstellar civilization: Leia Organa Solo nursed her twins for some time[2] and Mara Jade Skywalker nursed her son Ben until he was a few months old.[3] Even Tenel Ka Djo, Queen Mother of the Hapes Consortium, nursed her daughter Allana herself.[4]

Alternative techniques of feeding infants did exist, as the TDL nanny droid could store up to two liters of milk internally.[5] Other sentient species retained strong breastfeeding traditions as well: female Wookiees had six breasts, which they used to nurse their litters of cubs.[6]Askajian females also had six breasts,[7] while Gran females had three.[8]

Role in males

As male individuals were not biologically meant to nurse their offsprings, they sported much smaller breasts and produced no milk. Mandalore the Lesser (then a gladiator),[9]Aron Peacebringer (a planetary leader),[10] and Anakin Skywalker (in certain circumstances, such as on Nelvaan) would freely exhibit them. The males in primitive cultures would also go barechested in their young adulthood and childhood, such as the Nelvaanians.[11] Also, males would go barechested to allow freedom of mobility or body temperature, as exhibited by the Whiphid Jedi Master K'Kruhk,[12]Galen Marek while on Felucia,[13] the Korun leader Kar Vastor on Haruun Kal,[14] or Ki-Adi-Mundi when training in his youth.[15] Some males, such as Anakin Skywalker[16] and Corran Horn would also sleep barechested for comfort, though it should be noted that Horn undressed completely to sleep as opposed to simply going barechested.[17] Also, male breasts were usually not covered when the individual was in a bacta tank, as exhibited by Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn, or when tortured, as seen with Cade Skywalker. Medical examinations, such as those performed by the Kaminoans on their clones, were usually performed on barechested males. Men of various species, such as the Human Jariah Syn,[18] the Nautolan Kit Fisto, and a Quarren commander also swam barechested.[19] Exposing one's chest, also exhibited by Syn, was a part of preparing to make love.[20]

Cultural significance

In mainstream galactic society, breasts were normally kept covered.

Female patients in bacta tanks could have their breasts covered,[21] but in some cases they chose not to.[22] Leia Organa seemed unperturbed by the sight of Shen breastfeeding in public on Dathomir,[1] and Luke Skywalker was similarly unfazed when he encountered the Fallanassi adept Norika wearing only a sarong.[23]

Some Twi'lek dancers performed bare-breasted,[24] and Askajian females were prized as dancers and lingerie models because of their six-breasted physique.[25]

Non-mammals with breasts
 

A number of females belonging to non-mammalian species were known to have had breasts, most notably the reptilian Falleen (though other sources indicated that the size and pigmentation of the spinal ridge were the main distinguishing feature of gender dimorphism in this species).[26]

T'ra Saa, who was a shape-shifting Neti—a sentient species of plants— had breasts in her pseudo-Human form.[27]

Rodian females also possessed breasts with functional mammary glands. Off-world females, however, would wear loose clothing in an attempt to disguise their gender. Some females did flaunt their physique if they knew it would work to their advantage.[28]

 

Fucking hell.

During the development of Star Wars Galaxies, the team worked with Lucasfilm to determine the female Mon Calamari's physiology. Because Mon Calamari were not mammals, early concepts showing Mon Calamari with breasts were eventually rejected.[29] Despite this decision, however, the character of Meena Tills was depicted in Star Wars: The Clone Wars as having breasts.[30]

 

HA!

      So apologies if this has already been posted, but it's been confirmed that alongside the new episodes in the Star Wars series, there' going to be standalone movies released as well. Could be pretty cool if done properly (a Boba Fett movie would be especially good). Anyway, here's the 411 from Empire:
