Thoughts on the Onderon Arc / Tipping Points and you know the other ‘Thing’
So I made the mistake of accidentally reading a review for Tipping Points and then I just waited for Steela to die. I would have liked to be surprised while watching the show but well S@#* Happens. It’s sad that she died because that just further confuses the Jedi path for Ahsoka since we would have liked to see Ahsoka not be seduced by the romantic side of the Force. (And by ‘we’ I mean me)
Speaking of “S@#* Happens…” So Disney bought Star Wars huh? More like George Lucas sold Star Wars huh?
My favorite part (see: ridiculous) about George Lucas talking in one interview (paraphrasing) that HE said he wasn’t going to make 7, 8, 9 but that doesn’t mean Kathleen Kennedy wasn’t going to make 7, 8, 9… My reaction to that was basically “Okay, Palpatine.” I never said I wasn’t Darth Sidious, no one asked me.
My other favorite quote about these exciting times of our lives was (by me) “It’s like when they cancelled enterprise and all the trekkies rioted. They’re making all of us the Force users see the light outside our mom’s basement.”
But in all seriousness (or not) I personally don’t have a problem with Disney making the next Star Wars movies. I mean Disney is HUGE, no we really aren’t going to have Jedi wearing Mickey Mouse ears (honestly, calm your self). Maybe I don’t know much about Disney, from what I have witnessed so far, many people from all walks of life hate them (Feminists, Asexuals, Lesbians, etc…). But this is how I see it, um, they’re a corporation, they’re in it to make money. They’re going to make movies, and we are going to watch them. Some movies will be crappy, some movies will be great.
If I learned ANYTHING from attending Star Wars Celebration VI, it was that George Lucas has always targeted his movies towards kids, he’s all about kids, he believes Star Wars is ultimately for kids so it only makes sense that he sold it to Disney. We are all lying if we say ‘no we’re not going to go watch them.’ OF COURSE we’re going to go watch the Star Wars movies. I am just glad it’s a continuation and not a remake because, my heart, it’s not ready for THAT.
And for those that are worried about EU cannon-ness (or whatever the geeky terms are), of course they’re not necessarily going to stay true to it. Look at the all the comic books that get made into movies, and Harry Potter Universe in movies, it doesn’t stay true to the books. Some things work better in books, some things work better in the movies. I don’t know why people are just so attached to something, “…for in movement there is life, and in change there is power!”
Additionally the TCW isn’t going to go on forever. I mean we all know where Anakin, Obi-wan and the clones are headed.
