As an old school hardcore fan that had read the books, the new series are trash. I just pretend that they don't exist. There were so many amazing story lines they could have chosen from but they just made up some trash story that basically cancelled out 100+ books.
Yeah the extended universe is fucking awesome and over the top compared to the new series BS. Luke is a bad ass in the extended universe instead of some hermit pussy that tries to kill his nephew, which is completely out of character for Luke. Luke using force lightning in the EU:

Luke marries a red head that was a Jedi assassin for Darth Vader.. after she tried tried to kill him he wifes here up haha

He also opens up a Jedi academy, fucks up sometimes, makes dark Jedi, but also lots of cool Jedi too.

Dont get me started on potential stories. If they made a series with Thrawn in it i would literally bust a but :lol:

They could have picked up any of the written novels and made an amazing series from that.

I'm with you on Thrawn. He should have replaced Admiral Hux or whatever his name is.

Apparently thrawn is in this TV show called rebels, so hes canon

Thrawn was like the Napolean of Star Wars. I was actually rooting for him half the time.

Thrawn is a 3 movie series bad guy, they could have milked it for so much money, given the true fans a dream come true, and at the same time casual fans an amazing cinematic experience.

Even the Yuuzhon Vong story arc was better than this steaming pile of horeshit.

But yea, after the first new movie, which i cant even remember the title of I've stoppped watching Star Wars. They're all shit now and unless they decide to cancel them out I'm done watching them. This is coming from someone that went on opening weekend to watch a Phantom Menace. The prequels look very good now tbh.

If you're as big of a thrawn fan as I'm sensing you are, you will love this clip of Thrawn. I generally didn't enjoy the show Rebels as it was Disney so it was really watered down, still its cool to see Thrawn get animated here.

I'm just a fan of good story lines and characters. He just wasn't the typical Admiral, he had a lot of depth and stood amongst all of the Force Sensitive bad guys as 99% of them usually are. So it was interesting to see the good guys out manouvered and beaten down by strategy and tactics rather than some super weapon or Sith Lord. So in that sense they could have done something different than the other movies but still keep it cool and maybe throw in some dark jedi, like Darth Maul type guy to fill the role for lightsaber battles. Oh yea, do you know how he studied his enemies and came up with strategies? He studided the artwork of the race he was facing to understand their psychology and then got into their heads lo.

The Yuuzhan Vong would have been cool too. The whole galaxy getting invaded by an alien race that is immune to Force skills? A race with no technology and organic spaceships?130 trillion dead in the galaxy? Luke Skywalkers son sacrificing himself to protect a retreat of Jedi? A living planet.

I could go on and nerd out, but its all amazing scifi and story lines. But what do they do? Deathstar 2.0, emo jedi kids that are lightsaber pros after a week etc. Fuck that.

100% agreed. Thrawn is the fucking man. The artwork thing is actually touched on in that clip. This clip is cool too

The prequels had their problems; not the least of which was George Lucas' involvement, but compared to this trilogy they're cinematic gold. I can't think of a single scene from FA or TLJ that even comes close to the Podracing in Phantom Menace or the Battle of Geonosis in Attack of the Clones.
The General Grievous vs Obi Wan fight in ROTS was pretty badass also. Ewan McGregor was badass as Obi Wan.

I loved the Thrawn trilogy, I read the series way back in the early 2000s. So much more interesting than the garbage we get with this series. I honestly think as time progresses we will view this modern trilogy as worse than the prequels.

The prequels had shocking dialogue and wooden acting, but Lucas is anything but generic when it comes to world building and the costume/alien/world design are highly original and unique to him; he has an astoundingly creative and imaginative mind, he's just a bit spergy and can't do human interactions well at all, but the prequels were bursting with visually stunning and memorable setpieces and characters.

(TPM)The podracing, droid armies that came prepacked in giant tanks and disembark from a extendable rack, the gungans and their big orb shields, Darth Maul and the double ended lightsaber, Qui Gon Ginn, Watto, the gungan underwater cities, the jedi council, queen amidala's makeup, (AOTC)the water planet where they made the clones, the arena fight with the giant bugs, meteorite space battle between Jango Fett and Obi Wan, Jedi attack on genosis, Count Dooku, (ROTS) General Grievous and his spinning lightsabers, fight on Mustafa, yoda- palpatine fight in senate, etc

All that is so memorable and it's just exploding with ideas, they were just implemented in a shit way cause Lucas was never a good script writer and forgot to direct well in the intervening 20 year period between New Hope and Phantom Menace. But I can see the genius of the man right there, the prequels are flawed but utterly idiosyncratic and unique to his mind, despite the massive over reliance on CGI there is something ironically "human" about the prequels.

The new trilogy could have been plotted out by a computer algorithm, they are just utterly banal and uninteresting, made by committee with certain boxes to be ticked, especially boxes relating to shoehorning as much nostalgia into every aspect of the trilogy not permitting it to have a life of it's own. The new movies are basically big budget fan films. Or worse, generic action sci-fi movies with Star Wars licensed aesthetics slapped on, no different to Abrams Star Trek films which had little to do with the lore of the Star Trek universe and no fidelity to the philosophical and political aspects of Star trek, it was forgettable sci-fi action shlock but with federation badges welded on and mentions of vulcans. Abrams is basically a total hack.

And I don't know where to even start with Rian Johnson, just what the absolute fuck. A visually stunning film that made no sense and basically destroyed any tension and interest in the third film. I guarantee they pulled bringing back Palpatine right out of their ass probably because of this, I seriously doubt they were planning to bring Palps back when they were planning to do the trilogy back in 2014, this is the only way to bring back the tension and intrigue in the series which Johnson had run straight into a wall. If they were going to bring him back they would(and should) have been dropping hints about it from the first movie to emotionally prepare us for his return, springing him out for the last movie unexpectedly diminishes his return emotionally other than the cheap pop he gets when he appears in the trailer by the low-IQ low-T obese nerds zapped out from mountain dew and dorritos chilli heatwave overdose.

JJ Abrams admitted as much to this when he said he consulted with Lucas about bringing Palpatine back. They totally pulled this outta their ass.

But the absolute cunts - it worked, I had absolutely no interest in seeing this movie after the Last Jedi turd but now I am intrigued with what they do with him. I hate how the obviously hacky lazy tricks worked on my feeble mind, the bastards. That two second cackle just made this new movie a minimum of 1 billion dollars.

There's a rumour flying around Palpatine was never Palpatine but actually Darth Plageious all along. And that he took over Palpatines body before killing his old self. This would explain how he could return from death after Return of the Jedi.

I don't like the idea of Palpatine being retconned. But it would explain alot of stuff.

Lol there's so much truth here. I didn't give a shit either but now my interest is picqued. And yeah they absolutely pulled this from their ass after killing snoke it was clear they made each movie separately as hoc rather than from an overall designed arc.

I still won't pay to see it in the cinema though I'll wait for the Korean VOD leak.

I agree with everything you've posted. I'll also go and see this, begrudgingly. I didn't go to Soylo because I was so let down with TLJ, but it felt really weird going to the cinema knowing they were showing a Star Wars film but not watching it. We watched the latest Jurassic Park instead, which was dogshit, and I would definitely have enjoyed Soylo more than that, but the damage Disney are doing to SW justified staying away

I'll go to episode 9 though, begrudgingly

I saw this and I was fucking sick, on his youtube channel he reacts to a variety of videos and has done for years, he only gets this pathetically emotional for star wars videos, unfortunately he seems legit. Guy needs fucking shot. Just represents the absolute state of western man. Imagine getting that emotional over a mediocre shitty film series.

Will watch the new film however, I don't hold much hope for it being decent at all.

I'm more looking forward to the series later in the year - The Mandalorian.

Not hyped for this one at all. And Palpatine is the best character in Star Wars.
