Really? Because these guys seem to be pretty cool with hanging with him.
I don't know about you, but if somebody tried to chop me or a friend of mine in half, in addition to committing genocide, I'm not going to want to hang out with them, no matter how much they apologized.
Yeah, well, if it didn't happen on-screen, it ain't canon.
Vader was never forgiven by the galaxy population. Follow the conversation.
And the books after ROTJ are canon. Well were until Disney came along.
Are you suggesting . . . TWO Death Stars?!
Well, is the vehicle traveling on a moving runway?
Great, show me onscreen where that happened.
According to George, who said the first movie was always called "Episode IV: A New Hope," that Greedo shot first, that it was planned as a nine-film saga, then it was never a nine-film saga, only a six-film saga, and who's responsible for some of the worst films in the franchise. If you're going to consider the books to be canon, then you might as well consider the Holiday Special and the Ewok movies to be canon as well. (And we know how George feels about the Holiday Special.)
While I accept the "canonicity" of things outside the films for the sake of argument--e.g., whose X-Wing is crashed on Jakku in The Force Awakens--I don't consider it on the same level as what is actually shown in the films. By and large, if it doesn't happen in the films, I don't care about it. The films are what matter to me, and I'm free to imagine any other aspect of that universe the way I like. Someone who objects and says "Nuh-uh! Nuh-uh! It states very clearly on page 14 of the Poe Dameron #7 comic book that...," well, they're free to have their opinion, but I'm free to dismiss it.
At some point in the future, someone will start a new Star Wars film saga, and they may very well choose to discard all of our newly canonized material, just as was done when The Force Awakens was developed.
I mostly agree, but my only override to this rule, is stuff that gets canonized by being shouted out in the movies.
Like Maul in Solo, or Hera in Rogue One.
Yeah, when we were working on Force Unleashed I remember it being exciting for the Star Wars fans in the office because Lucas Arts made a big deal of the story being canon.
Even then it gets tricky. Coruscant was first named in a novel with the name adopted for in the movies.
TFU was really good, I always thought it was canon. I guess Disney killed that?
Death Star duel. With their superlasers converted into giant lightsabers.
wouldn't that be like two testicles battling over the penis?
JJ talks about the title.
Leaked sizzle reel contrasting behind the scenes of the originals with behind the scenes of the sequels.
That's just stupid and nothing but fanwank bullshit.
You want to see the gang together? Watch the original trilogy.
Part of me would have dug it, but the smarter half of me thinks...look at the pattern of the originals.
The original trilogy bumped off every surviving prequel character.
Obi-Wan, Owen, Beru, Bail, Jabba, Boba, Yoda, Vader, Papatine.
And with the exception of the force ghosts, and Vader-Palpatine, there were no reunions.
Yoda never sees Chewie again.
Obi-Wan never sees Bail again.
Owen & Beru never see Anakin again.
Luke & Leia never find out about Amidala.
The SW universe is rough.
Palpy ain't dead, and when the others got bumped off, we hadn't spent decades with them.
It's not like we got whole movies dedicated to Chewie and Yoda hanging out together. Basically, the only time we saw them together was when Yoda said goodbye.
That we know of. See? Two can play the whole speculation of what happened off-screen game. Heck, if they ever do make the Obi-Wan movie, they could have Bail and Ben do something together.
It's not like they really knew the little shit to begin with, though. They spent more time with Luke.
BZZZT! Wrong! Leia knew her. Remember, Luke asks her to tell him about her "real mother" and she describes her as looking very sad. Doesn't match up with the PT, but that's never stopped George before.
Not as rough as its fans!
Yes, yes we would.
So, there's this ...
Apparently whether or not Luke Skywalker is a virgin is the subject of lots of creepy obsession in incel circles, but that's not why I'm bringing it up.
If Mark Hamill says the question of whether Luke dies a virgin is undetermined, then -- unless he's messing with us -- that implies that the question of whether Rey is Luke's daughter is either canonically answered in the negative or left unresolved.
You didn't really believe his line about "Going to Toschi Station to pick up some power converters", did you?
When you hear him whine in that scene, you can rest assured that he really was going for power converters.
I don't put it past him to mess with us.
That's Luke's helmet and X-Wing on Jakku. Rey is his daughter.
Covers and descriptions for TROS tie-in novels, comics, art books, etc.
I just can't see Luke abandoning her like that.
It's not his character.
Rey is the emperor reincarnated.
Luke doesn't know.
He may not have even known he was having sex.
Are we so sure Owen and Beru gave him the talk?
Rey's mom could've told him it was "thawing out his saber hilt in her Tauntaun pouch", and instead of taking it as poetic dirty talk, he took it literally.
He's the guy who blew up the Death Star. Post-Yavin, the amount of tail coming his way would have looked like Order 66 in boobs form.
Yeah, I mean, he shows back up at the base and I doubt if a woman there wouldn’t have been showing him her airlock, if you know what I mean.
