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.

Hello there! The original Star Wars: Revenge of The Sith (2005) cut was over four hours long, and we think that George Lucas should do the right thing and give the fans what we deserve and what is rightfully ours. We love democracy, and we hope he does too. By signing this you are letting your voices be heard. If this petition does go viral, then we will have unlimited power and if George does the right thing then he would be strong and wise and we would all be very proud of him. This whole operation is our idea and we need to ensure that it is done. We will proclaim ah, victory when we achieve our goal. May the force be with you all and have faith.

Hahahahaha! These people are the worst.

I don't buy it was four hours long... Lucas is an efficient filmmaker, despite his dialogue skills (or lack thereof).

These are just entitled fans thinking because the Snyder cut of Justice League is going to be released they can demand other movies cut footage be released (same case with Suicide Squad).

I still want to be able to watch that Topfer Grace cut that's the 3 prequels in 80 minutes, not this.

The RLM media review, snark aside, hit on a lot of great points, articulating something else I figured out: A New Hope was perhaps the greatest cinematic fluke of all time and Empire the most effective follow-up of all time. ROTJ is great but the greatness of it's effects and direction masks goofy and melodramatic and clunky dialogue. A New Hope was a great idea that was steered not by it's creator but by editors, special effects techs, and personable actors. Likewise the prequels were a strange, messy, half-baked product of the same creator having absolutely no one saying no at key points. The New trilogy, while still beautiful and decent, was ultimately the Poochy The Dog of recent media franchise efforts: a film series constrained and handicapped corporate committee second-guessing itself over a focus group of batshit internet fans.

The Prequels are still the worst, not so much for sucking outright but by being haphazard - it's like someone took substantive but highly edited plot points of a miniseries and shoehorned them into a pretty and dazzling wall of noise - noise in the form of absurdly dense action scenes and conceptual backdrops. They showcase great actors in weird, uncanny valley-esque conversations and interactions. It's like a high budget late 90s era / early 00s era video game cutscene film series. Oddly enough I find the Phantom Menance to be the best overall - it's still got the vibe of some characters stumbling through some adventure.

I'll elaborate more later on my thoughts of the movie itself but finally seeing RoS was like the coda to this long, gradual realization I'm over Star Wars. I'll cherish the old stuff I love, objectively appreciate the stuff that's not that good, and come to terms that much of the fanbase consists of naive zealots who love the Disney stuff or - worse - pathetic, bitter, resentful and toxic douchebags. I've figured out my passion for the aesthetics most showcased in ANH points me more other retrofuturistic sci-fi of the 70s and 80s more than it does to other SW media. I look forward to not feeling tempted to invest in a franchise and it's merch for myself personally when I rather just see my kids happy playing with legos of Rey, Finn, Poe, BB-8, Rose, etc. That's who they are intended for and that's who Luke, Han, Leia, and R2D2 were intended for - kids and people who are kids at heart.

agreed. Note: Rian Johnson died on the way back to his home planet.


to me it’s this:
1. empire
2. new hope
3. half of phantom menace
4. Jedi
5. force awakens
6. Other half of phantom menace
7. half of last Jedi (the Rey and kylo bits)
8. Rise of skywalker
9. other half of last jedi
10. revenge
11. Clones

The prequels told a bad, but new story poorly. The sequels told the original trilogy's story again, but poorly. I'll take the former any day of the week.

 

Also the prequel memes are better.

 

 

Also Ewan McGregor.

 

I never thought of it this was but the new trilogy is really, really un-meme-able compared to the other films and tv shows. RoS was over 2 hours long yet most of it was edited like a content packed teaser trailer.

Unless Disney allows the directors and writers to do their thing they've been hired to do with Star Wars, it will be milquetoast by committee boring pap. I want fresh perspectives on the galaxy far far away. I'd be glad to to not even hear about Jedis or even the Force in the next installments. Or place it even further back in time and have brand new characters and happenings or go way into the the future. Fuck the fanboys who basically want to see the same shit over and over, just in a different order and same characters with different names.

Then The Mandalorian (a few episodes were directed by Wikiki and he even did the voice of IG-11) is right up your alley - I love the fact that (so far) haven't mentioned The Force by name, Jedi, or shown a lightsaber (well, almost). It gets what Star Wars is about beyond the Skywalker story.

Also, the tech they developed for it (watch the making-of series on Disney +, especially episode 4, "Technology") is amazing - it may revolutionize how TV and Films are made beyond all this green screen nonsense that was required up to this point.

      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:

      A clip from the upcoming Star Wars movies on Blu-Ray show Lucas finally went and fixed something in the movies that actually needed fixing: That damn lame Yoda puppet (which was inferior to even 1980's Empire Strikes Back Yoda puppet) from The Phantom Menace:
