Wait, JJ Abrams babysat Spielberg's kids? The same Spielberg whose daughter just told the world she had been abused by "monsters from outside her family" as she announced her porn career? Makes you think....

Notice how top of the list on fiction is that it's "Authentically lived in".

That's code for diversity hires, which is repeated down the list, i.e. can't write about a Twi'lek unless apparently you are a Twi'lek.

Me, I think the easiest comeback for that is: if you want to write stories about people living right on the edge, maybe you should stop hiring pampered SJW Arts degrees types as your writers and look for a Charles Bukowski.

I noticed the daughter in question is remarkably un-jewish. She is black, ignoring any elephants in the room, most likely adopted, and remember gents, genetics loads the gun, environment pulls the trigger. Growing up around daddy berg must have been too much for the poor soul, this is how she reacts. Granted I'm sure she had some bad times as a child too, if she was taken advantage of by the usual pervs.

I for one, am looking forward to Jurassic DARK.

They constantly come up with explanations on those shitty movies that should elaborate on the idiotic decision-making of those morons and Bolsheviks:


So Palpatine was a clone, he just transferred his "essence" to a new body. If that is the case, why does he look like a corpse (because of the Dark Side of the Force). But why did he lay low on one planet, why did he pick such an old clone - he should be young.

Whatever - does not make any sense - they just come up with crap on the fly JJ-style and then realize: "Fuck - this is total crap. Let's write us some background that sounds less moronic but is still stupid."

They do this with everything now.


Whatever .... they will implement the SJW program in all outlets - Star Wars, Star Trek, Dr. Who, Lara Croft, Marvel, DC, simply anything that is in any way shape or form.

Also they do it badly because ideology trumps talent - and since even non-White talented people generally use ancient story-myths, then they are excluded from the roster as well.

Funny thing Simeon, the Palpatine clone idea came from an early story from the Legends Canon (former Expanded Universe) where Palpatine survived through transferring his essence to clone bodies. Most of the bodies didn't last due to the Dark Side. Palpatine eventually got into another Clone Body and fought Luke. He looked like a blond man in his Youth originally but after the Prequels, other drawings of him had him as a redhead.

The storyline was the Dark Empire Trilogy, it was written years before the Prequels came out so it contradicted the Chosen One prophecy explained in the Prequels and is a divisive entry in the Legends Canon.
 
< Story still does not make sense in the movies. The reason is - if he were able to clone himself, enter those bodies, then he would have instantly retaken control of the remaining Empire forces. His body would be young.

Also they gave explanations as to why he did not enter the body of the Mary Sue - the reason is because she did not strike him down in hate. What bollocks is this? Utter crud.

I vaguely remember the story from the re-recreated emperor, but it followed the original trilogy just shortly after which would make sense. Also Sidious creating a decrepit Snoke clone to rule in the shadows?

Utter bullshit - they pull some ideas ouf of their asses and just tried to combine it now with expanded universe lore. Problem is that they started out on a different path and the clone emperor story does not make much sense once you go decades into the future, add another baddie.

Whatever - they are so incompetent that it's funny to observe how they burn every single big franchise to the ground.

In the original storyline the Emperor had a whole bunch of clones that he had to cycle through because they kept crapping out on him and there was a story arc revolving around him attempting to capture Luke and Leia's child in order to transfer his psyche into a viable force-empowered body.

He couldn't merely resume his post as leader of the empire because by the time he got back from the clone storage facility the new COC had already been established and nobody would have merely stepped aside for some kid who claimed he was the Emperor in a new body.

I rank the story arc as lame (more dungeons and dragons than star wars) but it wasn't beyond suspension of disbelief for the setting. IIRC Thrawn took over the remnants of the empire while Palpatine was still trying to get rid of that new-clone-smell.

As generic and lame as this story was it would still be better than what Disney offered, but they wanted to cash in on using the original actors so it wasn't viable and more to the point the progressive dickbags are never going to use the old canon because that would infer that an old white dude from last century had created something better than they were personally capable of making.

In any case it's increasingly difficult to care. There are hundreds of real life stories and historical events that are far more compelling than the imaginary accomplishments of a bunch of space men with laser swords. I can point and laugh at the results of their arrogance and stupidity but I'm not personally invested in being outraged when the new animated series results in Chewbacca sodomizing Han Solo.

I wouldn't call it 'divisive'. I'd call it 'hated' by the fanbase who read it at the time. Even Timothy Zahn - later on, in that duology of his which ended the Bantam Books run - tried to retcon it. He had Mara Jade flat out say she didn't believe Luke was dealing with an actual clone of the Emperor in that series. Seriously, in a long run of books that includes The Crystal Star, Shadows of the Empire, and the collected contents of Kevin J. Anderson's toilet tank, Dark Empire stands head and shoulders above the rest of the EU in absolute batshit fuckheadery.

You know how sometimes when you were riding a bike as a kid, and you could feel yourself steering the bike towards the tree? You literally could tell you were going to hit it, you knew you were going to hit it, but you kept on riding the bike right into the tree regardless? That's Rise of Skywalker right there: from semi-adapting the literal worst of the EU's ideas through to an overly stuffed execution (on reports - still haven't seen the film, don't want to) it was Disney riding the bike right into the tree.
 
Many of the ideas in the expanded universe were stupid. As Lucas was concerned I doub that every comic or book out there was canon. It was at best a general outline - some possibly being true and others not. That would have been enough for the fanbase if any future movie was made.

In fact - it was a good testing ground of ideas - you then found out which were popular and which were not. That is how Marvel and DC created popular comic book characters and stories - they came up with thousands of superheroes over time and only a few dozen were highly popular - the rest were either too stupid or unpopular.

The expanded universe was a free testing ground for Lucasfilm.

Currently all of that is gone, because it's agenda first and stupid ideas later:


The stuff here becomes dumber and dumber. The father of Rey is supposed to have been a powerless 100% clone of Palpatine. Palpatine survived the drop in the shaft and created clones. One of them was Rey's dad. Papa Palpatine wanted to put his "essence" in it, but he was powerless and while running away sired Rey. Palpatine had him killed with the stupid dagger that had this the on-shore-geographic device in it. Then that powerful Sith-assassin died of hunger in that cave that those morons took 2 minutes to get out of.

I don't care frankly - it's stupid on more stupid sprinkled with stupid.

They even retconned and destroyed Luke since Leia was shown as being more powerful than Luke even in his prime. Of course - wahmen are the true powers even when receiving far less training, having a far weaker body, does not matter - they are the real superheroes powered not by the force, discipline and training, but by the bestest power of them all - being a wahmen. They can only be bested by a black wahmen and that wahmen can only be bested by a black disabled transgender Muslim wahmen. And the fuckers have been at since 2013. Even in the Star Wars Rebels series it's clear that they made the mother of the Jedi padawan kid a Hijab-clab proto-StarWars-Muslim. Their cookbook is only one - diversity, diversity, diversity, anti-Western, anti-White, anti-Christian, nihilist shit.


Here - I bring you the new diversity pyramid super-Jedi:

Bumping this thread back up. Disney is back in the news.

‘Star Wars’ Series From ‘Russian Doll’ Co-Creator Leslye Headland in the Works at Disney Plus (EXCLUSIVE)
A new “Star Wars” series is in the works at Disney Plus, Variety has learned from sources. The series hails from Leslye Headland, the co-creator, showrunner, and executive producer of the critically-acclaimed Netflix series “Russian Doll.”

Details of the exact plot of the series are being kept under wraps, but sources say it will be a female-centric series that takes place in a different part of the “Star Wars” timeline than other projects. Headland is said to be attached to write and serve as showrunner on the series, with the show currently staffing.

Reps for Disney and Headland did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for comment.

Headland also directed multiple episodes of “Russian Doll.” The show was nominated for 13 Emmy Awards for its first season, ultimately winning three. Headland began her career writing and directing the “Seven Deadly Plays” series, which includes “Bachelorette” and “Assistance.” “Bachelorette” was the basis for her directorial film debut starring Kirsten Dunst. Her other film credits include writing the 2014 remake of “About Last Night” and writing and directing “Sleeping with Other People.” Besides “Russian Doll,” her other TV credits include “Terriers,” “Blunt Talk,” “SMILF,” and “Black Monday.” She is currently under an overall deal at Fox 21 Television Studios, with the studio now under the Disney umbrella.

She is repped by Michael Sugar at Sugar23 and Steve Younger at Myman Greenspan. She is repped by UTA for directing.

News of the new series development comes after Variety exclusively reported that a third season of “The Mandalorian” is already in the works at Disney Plus ahead of the second season premiere later this year. “The Mandalorian,” one of the launch titles for the Disney-branded streamer, proved to be a major hit and pop culture phenomenon upon its release.

There are currently two other live-action “Star Wars” shows in the pipeline at Disney Plus — an Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor and a Cassian Andor/”Rogue One” prequel series starring Diego Luna. Variety exclusively reported that Joby Harold had recently joined the Obi-Wan series as the writer, while Stellan Skarsgard and Kyle Soller recently joined the Cassian Andor series.
I stopped reading after "female-centric series...".

I for once welcome Star Wars' newest obese feminist overlord. The sooner this franchise completely demolishes itself, the sooner more nerds will wake up from their dopamine-fueled slumber and stop giving these zombie franchises their money.

I'm a Star Wars accelerationist, of course.

Meanwhile, the last 2 eps of Clone Wars show that great SW stories are still possible. Just get the SJW cunts out of the process.

Even though Ahsoka is overpowered...

As I finally brought myself to watch the Rise of Soywalker, I immediately thought two things. The first 15 minutes was at least an entire movie or two fast forwarded. Then I kept watching and it was ok, of course compared to the filth produced in Episodes 7 and 8, the worst of them all. It then reminded me of Game of Thrones, and I began to think, what was the most disappointing? I think the later seasons of Thrones, especially the last season (obviously) were so awful that that series in fact was the biggest disappointment of all time. And it's not even close. I cringe to think of how bad that last season truly was, especially given the huge (1.5 year?) break; it's almost funny how quickly I want to erase that entire thing from my mind. Both productions are amazing in that they really show you how good the Lucas Star Wars prequels truly were. I know that'll get people going, but it proves the whole thing is a hoot!

I actually finally broke down and watched it last weekend. Doesn't hold a candle to the originals but I was pleasantly surprised that it was a decent movie and not SJW'd up. I think the writers did about as much as they could to try to salvage something from the wreckage left behind in the wake of 7 and 8.
