Merry May 4TH.

I will attempt to celebrate it by chucking on Clone Wars whilst I'm working to see what the fuss is about as long as I don't end up getting bored with it and not making it past the first 5ish episodes again. Disney arent making it easy, I opened it up to watch and there's a pic of Jar Jar Binks on the episode listings.

I'm gonna celebrate by rewatching episodes of the mandalorian!

Fun Fact for all the Disney haters. Jar Jar was inspired by goofy. George lucas said so himself. I get the feeling he was planning to sell the brand to Disney way longer ago than you might have thought.

Oh and you wanna see some crappy star wars? Ever heard of those two Ewok movies? Disney ain't got nothin on those.

@jump, yeah, I'm not sure how far into the show this remains true, but at least during season 1 Jar Jar is a pretty common recurring character (there's at least one episode centered around him, too).

@Zeldafan79 doesn’t really change the fact that Disney botched the series up.

@RR529 I gave up trying to watch Clones Wars after two episodes. I don't remember Jar Jar being in the ones I watched so he didn't effect my opinion. Appranty it gets good later on but I don't think I will get that far as this was my third attempt.

I think I will celebrate Star Wars by rewatching by the 00's Battlestar Galactica instead, god damn that shows was great.

@VoidofLight I don't know about that, there's alot more I'd watch under Disney than from Lucas. The bar was really low with from when they took it over so it wasn't hard. lol

@jump the sequels effectively shot all interest I had with the disney stuff.

@VoidofLight Each to their own but it's your loss at the end of the day.

The people they are getting to write and direct the tv shows is strong. Robert Rodriguez (I love his films), Taika Waititi (I love his films too), Jon Favreau, Peyton Reed, Christopher Yost, Tony Gilroy etc. It makes me wonder if these are people who grew up watching Star Wars so it's a chance to work on a childhood dream come true enough that they are happy to put their own projects on hold.

My brother liked the mandalorian and he is totally not into the movies at all. Anyone who's actually watched it can probably see how good it is and if you're so set on you're Disney hating that you refuse to even try it well that's just sad. Why is it when the prequels first came out people were hating on them but once Disney took over suddenly the prequels are a masterpiece of cinema?

If the christmas special, Ewoks, Jar Jar or Jake Lloyds acting didn't already ruin star wars what makes Disney get all the credit? What because they wiped out the EU? Yeah a moon falls on Chewie and kills him is totally something that should have stayed Canon right?

@VoidofLight
I feel the conflict within you, Let go of your hate!

@Zeldafan79 Yeah, it seems Disney are just low hanging fruit where it's easy/cool to hate on whilst they can also avoid saying Star Wars sucks and just say Disney sucks instead. People even hated on the OG films with be complaining about Ewoks are just there to sell toys so all of this isn't even new.

But at the end of the day it seems mental that The Mandalorian is only Star Wars thing people seem to have universally liked in decades should now be boycotted.

Yeah i remember all the crap the mandalorian was getting and still gets. First there wasn't enough women on the show, then bill burr got everyone riled up because he said he hated star wars and people wanted him fired. After that it was the Gina Carano thing. Then a certain OG character shows up in the season 2 finale and oh boy heads roll over that! Now i hear these jerks want baby yoda removed from the show. Cancel culture at Its finest!

@Zeldafan79 Maybe Disney should repeat what they did with Bill Burr and just hire everyone as extras who complains about Star Wars to get them to change their mind. I would have loved to see how Jon Favreau actually pitched hiring Burr, telling a company the size of Disney he wants to play a meta-joke by hiring someone who hates Star Wars to be in Star Wars, and they still said yes.

I wish people would just find some other show to complain about. We got a good thing going and these nut jobs ain't happy unless they're trying to ruin everyones fun. That's star wars for ya! It's the brand folks love to hate. I've never known a fandom that gets more passionate or ticked off when things don't go the way they think it should with whatever is currently happening in the franchise.

If people are mad about Burr, they should also be mad about Alec Guinness, since he also didn’t like star wars. Didn’t stop Guinness from giving it his all though.

"It is fate. Many have tried, yet none have ever managed to escape it's flow."

jump

@VoidofLight That's not a like for like though. Alec Guiness didn't even know what a Star Wars is since it didn't exist and his complaints were more about the filming experience, in particular the dialogue being "rubbish" which seems fair to be honest. Burr is the type of comedian who pushes buttons for the sake of it with one such target being Star Wars as he knows he will get a response but has now shut up about it since they cast him.

I have one word for you: Pokémon

Anyway, yeah, happy belated May the 4th! I started the Bad Batch on Disney+ yesterday to celebrate. While it definitely wasn’t as good as where The Clone Wars left off, it has the potential for some great storylines. The characters are a little flat for me at the moment though, especially Wrecker and Tech. I loved all the little easter eggs from Rebels and Clone Wars, like seeing AZ, Caleb Dume, and Saw Guerra. The animation was absolutely beautiful, with some really jaw-dropping shots with a cinematic feel to them. I love how it almost looks like a moving painting at times. My only other complaint was that the pacing was a little... weird. I think my biggest issue was the decision to suddenly make the heroes go to another planet for about 15 minutes before just going back to where they were before. That could’ve easily been cut out. I also don’t really know what I think of the new character yet to be honest, I’ll just have to see where she takes the story.

@jump

Yeah i heard about that! Apparently he didn't like people even asking him about it. He was ashamed for even being involved with star wars. I guess he was too high class of an actor to lower himself to some silly space movie but he wanted that paycheck. I heard he even made some kid cry once. He was supposedly asked for an autograph and turned him down. At least i read that somewhere.

@ToadBrigade

Ah pokemon. You might be right. The one game series i should really look more into. I haven't played alot of the games but i know several character names. I mean everybody knows Pikachu.

@Zeldafan79 You're too late to get onto the Poke-bandwagon as they have cut Pikachu out along with 99.7% of all the other Pokemon in the new games. All that is left is Dunsparce, Foongus, Luvdisc and the one that looks like a set of keys (yet is amazingly over powered). ;p

The other day I was reading a ranking of every Star Wars movie/show ever, and while it's just some random critic's opinion, I thought it was pretty interesting just because these types of articles usually only include the films, and there are some unique placements nonetheless.

21. Holiday Special
20. Ewoks
19. Droids
18. Ewoks: Battle For Endor
17. Episode II: Attack of the Clones
16. Ewoks: Caravan of Courage
15. Episode IX: Rise of Skywalker
14. Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
13. Solo
12. Episode I: the Phantom Menace
11. Clone Wars (film)
10. Resistance
9. Rebels
8. Clone Wars (TV)
7. Episode VII: the Force Awakens
6. the Mandalorian
5. Rogue One
4. Episode VII: Return of the Jedi
3. Episode VIII: the Last Jedi
2. Episode IV: A New Hope
1. Episode V: the Empire Strikes Back

Here's the link to the original article, which also includes their reasons for the placements. Some are a bit off though, as they have number 15 between 18 & 17, 11 between 9 & 8, and 5 between 4 & 3, like they've re arranged it a few times and forgot to renumber.
