General All-Purpose Star Wars Thread

Having been a fan of Rebels for a very long time, I for one am very much enjoying Ahsoka. The fanservice moments have been wonderful, but also are subtle enough that you don’t have to have watched Rebels to follow the general plot, IMO. It reminds me of when Moff Gideon showed up with the Dark Saber in the first season of The Mandalorian; I remember I was watching that episode with my sister and her family and I did blurt out “He has the DARK SABER?!?!”, which prompted a round of questions from my family about what I was talking about, but if I hadn’t been there to say that I’m fairly positive that my family would have continued watching the show without realizing the history behind certain things and would have been perfectly fine. I think the reason some people are complaining about the fanservice moments in the show is because a lot of people who ARE long-time fans of Rebels are constantly talking about them in the context of Rebels and it leaves the people who have not watched Rebels very confused as a result. If that could be avoided, I think Ahsoka would be an incredibly good show to watch on its own for those people.

I for one was ecstatic to see Thrawn in live action and then to see Ezra with Sabine, a moment that’s been a long time coming since the end of Rebels. Truthfully I don’t think we’re going to see a resolution to everything happening this season; I think Filoni intends to set up a second season at least in order to smooth out more of those gaping plot holes the sequel trilogy left in the overall storyline. I’ve noticed in the majority of his live-action stuff that’s what he’s tried to do with Jon Favreau’s help. But as I said, overall this episode and the series overall have been fascinating, and I am truly sad we will not see more of Baylan Skoll after this season is over, since Ray Stevenson is no longer with us. However, the possibility of seeing more of Shin does make up for it somewhat.


I will address the fearsome tactician as Grranimal BlueBert until I’m convinced that he’s not a doofus.

Just finished Ahsoka Part Five and Six.

Most excellent.


What the huh?

It’s kind of sad to see Thrawn barely introduced as just some soft-spoken Imperial leader of few words. (Imperial leaders are always just bureaucratic bumblers, right?) And also that slight paunch (!?!!). … (sigh).

FWIW: Thrawn ranked #10 in IGN’s Top 100 Star Wars Characters “that left the biggest mark on the franchise” (or more likely, on the fans of it). Note that this list is from 2010, before the animated Rebels series, the third movies trilogy, and much of the Clone Wars animated series seasons.

IGN’s top 20, FYI:
  1. Darth Vader / Anakin
  2. Han Solo
  3. Obi-Wan Kenobi
  4. Luke Skywalker
  5. Yoda
  6. R2-D2
  7. Leia
  8. Boba Fett
  9. Chewbacca
  10. Thrawn (as of 2010, only original books canon)
  11. Lando Calrissian
  12. Darth Revan (2003 computer game: Knights of the Old Republic. – FYI: to google Revan = major game spoilers)
  13. Emperor Palpatine
  14. C3P0
  15. Jabba the Hutt
  16. Darth Maul
  17. Jacen Solo (original books canon, parents: Leia, Han; twin sister: Jaina; younger brother: Anakin (not Vader))
  18. Quinlan Vos (Comics, books, Clone Wars series. Brief sightings/mentions in 2 prequel trilogy films, Obi-Wan series.)
  19. Mara Jade (original books canon, spouse: Luke, child: Ben)
  20. Qui-Gon Jinn

LOL. Fixed. Auto-correct needs to die in a fire. (It also changed all “Darth”s to “Earth”.) …

AFA a tv audience knows.

It will probably be revealed that it was all exactly what he planned and the galaxy is doomed DOOMED right before it isn’t but BlueBert will be back in season 2 to menace everybody.

I’m rooting for that Karen to get offed now that her job is done.

And now for something completely different.

What happens when you cross Star Wars with the Beatles? Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans!


Why does Han outrank Luke in The Empire Strikes Back when Luke BLEW UP THE FREAKIN’ DEATH STAR?!

Because he’s a Skywalker, and they ruin everything. Lost a bunch of pilots, last chance, and he turns off his targeting computer and listens to voices in his head. Demote him.


I have loved this for years.

Another old favorite. Ah HAAA!


Look who came in the mail today!! He’s animatronic too!!


As a huge Beatles fan I just listened to all of those parody tracks and was laughing so much.

That’s a red one, right? I hope he doesn’t have a bad motivator.

I think it’s cruel that no one ever replaced his leg, or repaired R2-D2’s rockets.

Pretty sure that’s Chopper, not R5-D4.


Luke is the Maverick of Star Wars. He stays flying because he’s good at it, he loves doing it, and Han and Leia protect him from above in the Rebel hierarchy.
