Star Wars: The Disney Era

TFA to TLJ conclusively showed that nobody at Disney has a lore bible for their films and other Disney properties / nobody is overseeing a comprehensive vision for these films and shows. I would rate that a coincidence, at most somebody saw the image from clone wars/rebels and thought who that’s visually cool and that’s as far as it goes.

Lots of news sites are making a thing of Dark Jedi Rey scene in the trailer. I willing to bet it will be the same deal as it was with Luke in Dagobah facing off against a dark possible version of himself.

They didn’t before, but they do now. See my post from June 18th:

I’m gambling they’ll play it to look like that but reveal that she’s going balance the force by taking notes from the dark and light side.

I am aware, I just don’t think that Michelle has in anyway driven the process given that she was announced to the position in June and principle photography wrapped on ROS in February and shareholders got a rough edit in march. ROS is still a product of the freewheeling Kathleen Kennedy series of films.

I seriously hope that Star Wars doesn’t end with “centrism is good, actually”.

Oh shit, that wasn’t what I meant. Whoa, can see that now. I meant more along the lines that not everything is good or evil, but varying shades of grey and that Rey would show that but also show that sometimes taking a hard stance for the correct side is needed. Knowing Disney, I am now worried my mistaken message is more accurate.

I’ve pretty much given up on this trilogy of movies. It’s the next trilogy, when they no longer have to incorporate any of the original trilogy actors, that I’m really looking forward to. And for that trilogy, I think having a Kevin Feige-type person in charge will be great.

From a corporate and money standpoint, Disney will never do away with the duality of the Force. That’s how you sell action figures and other stuff. You need Good Space Wizards versus Bad Space Wizards.

Pong Krell from Klone wars also had one, but wasn’t a temple guard, he was just a huge dude with four arms, so he used two (real huge) folding staff style sabers at the same time.

I think the main problem is we living in an era of “My ignorance is equal to your knowledge.” so you have this Good vs Evil morality-play that gets lost on people if you try to be subtle about it. If you don’t you get accused of “Pandering to a crowd that I do not identify with and do not wish to be associated with.”

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeah boiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Not surprising but interesting.

I enjoyed this, a pretty good blend of the feel of Star Wars and an anime opener. I especially like the cut from Anakin & Obi-Wan fighting Dooku to them fighting each other on Mustafar.
