    I listened through the whole concert, it was wonderful. I love the new material - Fifteen’s theme is something special IMO. Very influenced by “I Am The Doctor” - relentlessly pulsing, energetic and fun - but with a dangerous edge to it. It’s fresh and it’s very very interesting, shades of a mad marching band about it. Can’t wait to hear it in action.

    Goosebumps and 'something in my eye' at that still spirit-soaring middle-eight, especially with the choral addition. 

    It is SO good to have Gold back.

    I've watched him in interviews as well, he honestly captures quite a few of the mannerisms and enunciations of a young Mark Hamill as well

    Don't worry, the Thrawn of Heir to the Empire is actually intelligent so they definitely won't be adapting those

    Thing is, aside from Ehrenreich, it’s just a lot of resemblance fueling the fan casting.  But everyone is forgetting the importance of the ensemble casting of Hamill, Ford and Fisher together.  Actors cast without regard or consideration for their chemistry together gets you… Ahsoka.

    One thing that always bothered me about Threepio's red arm in TFA is that he mentions it before the viewer has had a chance to get a good look at it. We first see it at the exact moment he mentions it, from a slightly obscured angle. JJ instantly ruined his own attempt at humor with sloppy cinematography.  




    In the (not exactly canon) Visions short by Aardman Studios, a background gag shows how Maz got Luke's saber. It was in a stall displaying Luke Skywalker memorabilia during the Mother Daughter Race on Chandrila, and Maz Kanata's arm can be seen grabbing it. Shame on her. No wonder she wouldn't tell anyone the details.

    Right, exactly.  All those examples from the original movies are terrific examples of excellent world-building.
     
    My TFA examples, for me personally, were not that.  They did not come across the same way those old examples did, to me. They felt more like commercials for other DIsney products, while those examples from the old movies felt like honest to god pure world-building.

    In Rebels he is portrayed as practical and coldly efficient, and in the original canon he is portrayed like an artist with quite evocative manoeuvres such as when he fooled one planet into thinking he was able to get past their planetary shields with orbital bombardment

    I never in a billion years thought I’d be bored with Star Wars, but here we are. 
     
    I wish so much I could like this the way the internet has come to embrace it.  But this is just not for me. It is nearly humorless, with glacial pacing, poor direction, bad acting by even Star Wars standards, and a “get-to-the-point” vibe that makes me question if this was produced solely to legitimize the cartoon characters by making them live action.  I did watch Rebels for what it’s worth. And normally, I have almost zero barometer for bad acting.  
     
    Thrawn never thrilled me. And it seems silly that we need to go farther, farther away for a new threat to emerge or link the OT to the ST or whatever they’re doing.   
     
    I’m concurrently watching the almost universally hated Star Trek Discovery, and the actors are much more relatable with peppier dialogue and more action and intrigue to keep me watching for what comes next.  I’m astonished that I’m finding Trek infinitely more exciting and entertaining than Wars right now.  I’m sorta bummed. I’ve never been so uninspired by Star Wars. 
     
    I wonder if a fan edit could make something of this to improve the pacing, but it couldn’t breathe life or humor into the characters.

    Yeah I'm not entirely sure what the intent was there but the reading presented by these new canon pieces of media seems like it misses the point entirely and is a quick and easy justification to have current Jedi (like TLJ Luke) do some wild shit

    Actually, nevermind, with the Yoda example I disagree. In Attack of the Clones Anakin talks about how the Jedi are forbidden to love yet points out the hypocrisy of saying that they should show compassion which he sees as unconditional love. I think with that as context that scene is definitely critiquing Yoda's approach there, especially given that it does not give Anakin comfort or peace.

    Although...Anakin is definitely not meant to be in the right, so maybe it could be that the Jedi represent Zen Buddhism but Anakin represents an antithetical materialist viewpoint that is the reason he falls. You may actually be onto something there. However that's incongruent with Luke succeeding in ROTJ because of his attachment to his father, in spite of the wishes of the Jedi to detachedly kill him.

    I really loved this episode's friendly and playful music during the travel and Rock-people sequences. Generally, these scenes gave me a Star Wars-vibe I haven't felt in quite a while, reminding me of the whimsical Jawa stuff in the original film. This stuff felt more like 70s SW than most of the other Disney-era material.

    He's writing stream-of-consciousness. As someone with ADHD I find it extremely relatable. He's watching and writing as a fan, as a producer, as a writer, all at the same time.
     
    Loved his little comments about the series 10 soundtrack, lol. And the swipe at David's hair in the 50th (it really was awful, the only bad thing about it really).
