  1. Disney released comic books that actually answer these very questions: https://www.ign.com/articles/star-wars-plot-hole-mystery-luke-skywalker-x-wing-marvel I find it amusing that they wrote about it as if it was “fixing a plot hole” between ESB and ROTJ.
  2. “Wait Luke, it’s too dangerous!” Obi Wan yells at Luke to stop. But doesn’t do anything except watch him speed off as Luke heads home because he believes, rightfully so, that stormtroopers are on their way there to slaughter the family. What if Luke made it in time to see the stormtroopers still there? After spending two decades watching over Luke, how ironic that at the moment of truth Obi Wan failed to keep Luke safe.
  3. Speaking of Brendan Fraser… https://variety.com/2022/film/news/batgirl-not-released-warner-bros-hbo-max-1235331897/amp/
  4. On the Ringer Verse podcast which aired from SW Celebration 2022 in Anaheim, they mentioned that contrary to what was being said about Obi Wan, that show did have a big budget. But it all went to pay the actors. Getting all the main players to return was expensive, particularly when someone like Liam Neeson was reluctant to “do TV.”
  5. When the Death Star explodes in ANH, we see the Falcon, 2 X-wings and a Y-wing flying away. The X-wings are Luke and Wedge. Who was in the Y-wing and what was that pilot doing the whole time Luke, Wedge and Biggs were being blown out of the sky by Vader?
  6. In Disney canon, Quinlan Vos also came back from the dark side after serving as Dooku’s apprentice during the Clone Wars. So Yoda saying, once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny…until it doesn’t.
  7. The Mandalorian made it seem like the future of SW was TV shows and it was better off that way. But the cheap way they are producing these series makes me wish they had stuck to films. I hate how the Obi Wan and BOBF suffered from a lack of budget. I think Obi Wan especially would’ve had better results as a well-funded planned out film.
  8. What we thought would be played out in just two films of a prequel trilogy ended up being almost 20 years of material, from AOTC in 2002 to the TCW series finale in 2020. So when TCW series ended with the shot of the clone helmet in the snow with the reflection of Vader walking away, I thought it was the perfect ending to the Clone Wars era. Instead we got another series where the clones are the main characters once again. It might not be “the Clone Wars” anymore but it still feels the same. So that’s my long-winded response to no, not really looking forward to more Bad Batch.
  9. Because of what we saw in Kenobi the fan theory goes now that the reason Owen and Beru were fried to a crisp in ANH was because they put up a helluva fight. So to send a message to the rest of Tattooine the stormtroopers didn’t just kill them. They made sure to go overboard with their deaths. Gamevet, I guess it depends on how long that would’ve taken.
  10. What if Luke doesn’t remove the restraining bolt from R2? Is he killed when the stormtroopers show up looking for the droids? Do Owen and Beru live because Obi Wan would’ve shown up to save all of them from the troopers? And if that’s the case does Luke stay or still go with Obi Wan to save Leia?
  11. That whole addition was unnecessary and it’s confusing as to why it was added. They changed Vader’s line because they added the shot of him walking up to his shuttle already parked. So it wouldn’t have made sense for him to say, “bring my shuttle” when it’s already right in front of him. But why add those shots at all? It hurts the film because the focus should be on the Falcon and its escape. The new shots even cut off Williams’ score that builds as the Falcon gets closer to being caught before R2 fixes the hyperdrive.
  12. Same in ROTJ. When Han grabs a gun to shoot the tentacle pulling Lando down into the Sarlacc, Lando screams, "No way, I thought you were blind!" Han used to respond, "It's all right, trust me." But now Han says, "It's all right, I can see a lot better." As Zathras said, unnecessary changes to the dialogue that in this case, hurts the film because it was more in line with Han to say "trust me" in his usual sarcasm.
  13. Actually, the first line uttered after Obi Wan leaves is Chewbacca saying, "That old man is mad." They used to have the Storybooks in my elementary school library. I'd check them out an reread them every chance I got. Those books had pictures of things that were either not in the films (Luke and Biggs talking on Tatooine) or of stuff that was in the films but different angles/different looking shots. That stuff got burned in my head and it would confuse me years later of whether I had really seen it in the movie or not.
  14. What if Watto did accept Republic credits?
  15. I think they should've just killed her. We didn't need another former Jedi turned evil Force user turns back to the light again. Vader and Kylo are enough. I would’ve rather seen something like when Luke is down and she’s about to strike the killing blow, Owen or Beru shoot her. Obi Wan arrives just as she dies. Maybe she gets a few words out to him before she goes. But that's it, because as you said, the whole inner confilct thing was overplayed and obvious. It felt like they made this episode as if ANH didn't exist.
  16. Before the series even premiered they already had Lola toys debuting at Celebration.
  17. Meanwhile millions of people continue to get slaughetered throughout the galaxy. But Obi Wan gets to keep loving.
  18. Oddly enough there was one thing I did want a literal line for. I hoped during the various conversations throughout the series that Obi Wan had with Leia about her parents, that Leia once would mention that she’s had visions or dreams of her mother. And then Obi Wan would tell her (or maybe she herself says her dad, Bail, had told her) that her mother was watching over her in her dreams or something like that.
  19. *Hand raised* Funny you mention this because there’s a scene in Rebels that plays out similarly to this conversation we saw between Vader and Palpatine. In Rebels, Vader informs the Emperor he’s found Ahsoka and that she might lead them to Kenobi. Palpatine’s response is to seemingly not care and tells Vader to be patient. So not only did this show mirror Ahsoka and Vader’s duel. It also mirrored the Emperor’s response or lack thereof.
  20. Not to mention everything and everyone Leia had known her whole life had just been wiped from existence. Everything! All that was left was rocks floating in space. So by the time Obi Wan sacrifices himself for her and Luke she’s probably numb to a lot of things at that moment.
  21. So did I. But then I remembered Vader is still looking for him in Rebels. So he couldn’t think he was dead. When Obi Wan sees Anakin inside Vader’s mask and tells him in tears he’s sorry for everything, that felt like he was trying to plead with Anakin to give up his Sith ways. He was asking Anakin for forgiveness for Anakin ending up the way he did. And not just literally in the suit, but overall with everything that happened, the deaths of Shmi and Padme, the Jedi’s obliviousness to what was happening around them and their unwillingness to look past their strict codes, and Ob
  22. I actually thought they'd take a page from the comics and have Luke be the one rescuing Owen and Beru instead of the opposite. I thought during the fight between Owen, Beru and Reva, once Reva got the upperhand and was ready to strike the killing blow, Luke would save the day. When Vader piled the rocks on top of Obi Wan and walked away, I thought that was it. That's how it ends and Vader thinks he's dead. I'm surprised they had Obi Wan come back, beat Vader and just walk away. Which brings me to this. Why would he do that? Kill Vader right there and you avoid so many problems for the ga
  23. That is the best way to go because the stakes for all these prequels and in-between series are extremely low. Most of the major complaints I've read about this show stem from the fact that we know most of the characters' fates. This not only drains any tension away from the series but also only serves to confuse the hell out of the audience. On a regular show with no ties to anything else, when Reva stabbed the Grand Inquisitor, it would've made some kind of impact. But because we knew he appears years later in Rebels, all this did was make people scratch their heads and just keep waitin
  24. Attempt to contact him. Sure, why not. Give away the whole secret of the children including exact location? Stupid, lazy writing.
  25. He’s sending a message to a person he thinks is most likely dead so therefore let’s just give out all the info on Vader’s secret kids. Sure.
