I'm sorry but Padme and Anakin is the best love story about sand and a lake on Naboo ever told.

I always suspected that no one at Disney has actually watched any Star Wars movies or shows, including the ones made by their own company, but putting several pairs in there that ended up attempting to or actually murdering each other is a more definitive confirmation of my suspicions than I'd have ever anticipated.

By several, you mean the two that include Anakin where he was paired with two people he had extremely close relationships before he got all dark sidey?  Yes... what a terrible travesty, you should write Bob Iger a letter.

I'm just kinda delighted they included Flix and Orka.

Rey never seemed to have much connection with sphere-bot, really, but OK. I guess sphere-bot sells toys or something, so it's in. I guess they were together in scenes sometimes.

People had meaningful relationships?

In an universe where Leia hugged Rey instead of Chewie when Han got kkilled Where we get more time seeing Rey mourn the dude she knew for a few weeks max, yet we don't see Luke reacting to the news at all?

Maybe people should tell the director about those.

Except The Mandaloerean is fanboy-proof. Jon Favreau really knows his shiat, right down to knowing all of the plot points in the OT to having the sandpeople riding single file to hide their numbers. It's continuity error-free.

Most Star Wars duos failed or fell apart, but this one works every time.
 
2021-01-22 8:26:59 AM  
Seems to me they just found random pictures of Star Wars characters standing next to each other, but it doesn't make them 'duos'

Han & Chewie, yes.
R2 & 3P0, yes.

Maybe Anakin & Obi-Wan

That's about it.

Related note:  I just finished reading Anthony Daniels book "I am C-3PO" and he was not a fan of Kenny Baker.  Which is sort of sad to discover.
Also not really a fan of George Lucas and definitely not a fan of the prequels

Depending on how you define it, there are a number of continuity errors (and/or totally inexplicable plot points) in Mando and a lot of them are pretty unnecessary.  The Marshal is full of them.

Din's not being able to remove his helmet and not knowing who the Jedi were are the most blatant and has been there since day 1.  They tried to patch it over in season 2 but basically whiffed.

That is not a continuity error, that is totally in keeping with Star Wars continuity!

It's par for the course starting with the original trilogy people not knowing about the force or believing that it existed or knowing the Jedi.
They were like the most important organization in the galaxy less than 15 years ago yet they referred to it as an "ancient religion"

Same with Rey thinking Luke was a myth...it wasn't that long ago, come on!

Imperial propaganda and the fact that even in their heyday there relatively few of them in a very big galaxy.

Din was adopted by Death Watch, a group of Mandalorians that took off their helmets literally all the time.

Din not knowing who the Jedi are may not be officially a continuity error (that's why I mentioned the definition part) but it's certainly dumb as fark.  Mandalorians have crossed paths with Jedi tons of times to the benefit or detriment of their society.  There's literally carvings of Jedi and Mandalorian battles on Mandalore.  And this shiat was going on only 30 years before the show.  It would be like 40 year old american or Brit who had never heard of The Beatles, assuming The Beatles had been around for 25,000 years and stopped being relevant in 1990.

Also The Marshal changes around a lot of the backstory on how Cobb Vanth gets Fett's armor.  The layout of Mos Pelgo (which was actually named Freetown) and the general design of the greater Krayt Dragon also get retconned.

There's not a single character in the OT who doesn't know what a Jedi is.  Han knew the Jedi existed, he just didn't believe they had special powers.  Admiral Motto was similar.

Rey is unique because she was trapped in Jakku with literally no way to connect to the greater galaxy.  Finn knew who Luke Skywalker was.  No other character thinks he's a myth.

How did Din not know about the Jedi?  Come on, in recent years we've seen how insanely easy it is to get the common people to believe anything....

Oh tweet author
"Sometimes it takes two, here are some of the best dynamic duos in the galaxy."


The word dynamic means "characterized by constant change, activity, or progress"
while your examples are mostly static one note shticks repeated over and over again unchanging.

Actually there is one error but they probably knew about it and said fark it.

The Jedi chick said she only knows one other being of Groku's species, Yoda. But there's a female Yoda on the council named Yaddle.  But they probably figured why gum up the dialog to satisfy a few anal nerds.

I'm guessing when Grogu was born Yaddle had to leave the Order for undisclosed reasons. Ashoka may thus have never met her.

I don't know my time frames, but I don't remember if Yaddle was seen past Phantom Menace, and if Ashoka was only a kid between 2 and 3 is it possible Yaddle died (or retired or something) and they just never met.

She MAY have been sitting there in 2 or 3, I just don't remember

I might have to rewatch the movie to get some context on that one. My initial reaction would be that they both knew Obi-wan Kenobi yet Luke knows fark all about Alderaan. Having some interaction over the shared loss seems more reasonable than over the planet (I fully accept that this is probably just justifying bad writing and that they probably just glossed over Alderaan being exploded). I would also like to add that a wise man once said something like "the death of one person is a tragedy, the death of a million is a statistic".

But for the sequels, they had at least 30 something years of shared history between the 4 of them. Getting a reaction from Luke and having Leia interact with Chewie over the event seems way logical than what they did.

And Luke is more broken up about the death of a guy he's known for a few hours than seeing his parental figures burned to a crisp.

You'd think they'd have a plaque or something of all the council members. Like I said I was mostly joking, it would have just bogged down the narrative to explain something even most SW fans didn't notice.

We are talking about a Lucas script, this is always the answer.

You make a good point that they both knew Ben but Luke three hours before? lost his "parents", Leia lost everyone in her life that wasn't on a the rebel base. Hell, I am more heart broken over Mira Furlan dying than Leia is about losing her parents, family, childhood friends, adult friends, etc etc.

What is really about is WE, the audience cared about Ben, so it is the catharsis moment for us, so actually not terrible writing, just movie making.

/ it would be interesting to see Star Wars redone as an 8 episode Netflix series.

But Leia is an expert in hiding her feelings. Even when Han was being nice and repeatedly saving her ass she was a total biatch to him, right up until he was about to be frozen to death. But that's true in most movies, especially action movies. Unless it's a plot point, characters tend to get over the death of a best friend or loved one pretty quickly. Otherwise it would just bog the story down.

That is bad writing though as the scene is being put before the story. Just because the viewer would get what is going on, doesn't make it a good thing to put on screen. The writer ultimately decides on the catharsis moments, so he should have written a moment that makes sense in universe.

Just take this "reveal":

Star Trek Into Darkness (5/10) Movie CLIP - My Name is Khan (2013) HD
Youtube OvdQYzRHlO0



It makes no sense for the antagonist to introduce himself like that and to have that music accompany it. No one outside of the audience knows who Khan is. I would respect the movie a little bit if Kirk went "hello Kahn, I am Kirk and this is my second in command, Spock" just after that fake dramatic reveal. It was written for the audience and has no place in the story at all.

Nothing in that movie made sense. In Wrath of Khan, even if you didn't see the episode of the show it was based on, it explained who Khan was and why he wanted revenge against Kirk. The audience also understood that Kirk and Spock knew each other for a long time, which gave Spock's death so much weight. In Into Darkness, Kirk and Spock barely knew each other and sort of hated each other. Nothing in that movie worked.
