No. Chewbacca is strictly sidekick material. He can't talk, so there will be no material centered on him.

Maybe that has to with hiring Favreau?

So far, the Obi Wan series has been decent to good. Boba Fett was not as good.

What are you gonna do - it was 45 years ago and Alec Guiness is way dead.

Look at it this way - living in the desert of Tatooine ages a guy.

Its not far off, Alec Guiness was in his early 60's when played Obi Wan, and the character would be in his mid / late 50's at that time. So you throw in some bad aging in the desert, and its not all that far off for timing. ANH is about 8 years later than this, so in 8 years he went from current Ewan to previous Alec. In the meantime he has had some hard living.

Agreed, it is not a hard sell. McGregor, now as Kenobi, looks roughly right as compared to Guinness 8 or 9 years later in story years.

(What is bad is personal - Guinness looked super old to me in 1976, when I was 14. McGregor is about ten years younger than me, and doesn't look old at all to 59 year old me. My own personal timeline makes this all a little weirder.)

Why does everything on Tatooine only have one shadow if it has two suns?

The cost of filming on Tatooine is too expensive so they had to film on Earth instead.

Razz Because the light cast by the red sun blends in too much with the sand. You're only seeing the shadow cast by the white sun! Razz

Well, the third episode was interesting, but the resolution of the big “event” in the episode seemed pretty unbelievable. More lazy writing, I think.

With Baby Yoda, Omega in the Bad Batch, and now tiny Leia, I guess the new standard for Star Wars shows is to have a cute kid along for the ride.

Kids [make parents] buy the toys, so Disney needs to market their media to attract kids. I still like Leia, though. The interaction between the Stormtroopers, Kenobi and her on the skiff fell in line with her future self. They're not doing anything with the character that isn't already established by Carrie Fisher's version.

I wholeheartedly agree with you that the fight scene was woefully underwhelming. It's only because it's canon that he's around for A New Hope that Kenobi survived.

Kids are supposed to make their parents buy the toys but Disney Star Wars toys aren't selling. Most kids don't care about Star Wars today.

That’s hilarious. Didn’t know the toys weren’t bringing the bank home.

Kids today care about their phone, their instagoogletwatface account, and being an “influencer”. Our society is teaching these kids narcissism as soon as they have any kind of thought process. I’ve seen pic after pic of a small child in a baby seat on my automobile or motorcycle forums, with a phone in hand. We’re talking very small children, not even old enough to be in elementary school. Then coast to coast a little bit older kids have mics and cameras with internet devices to stream their own bullshit all across the world. If you’re the star in your mind, how important are professionals?

LMFAO Orguss. Oh shit! Yeah, only seen the 2 EP’s so far, but a lot of fucking strutting around. Let’s see if the next one they are dancing again.

Potayto potahto.

Original, well-written menacing character written by people that cared, and voiced by Jason Isaacs:

Lazy ballsack cheese fungus hack writers and producers:



I used to party with goth kids that looked more Pau'an than this terrible show can produce. Shit the class basket-case that I took out on a few dates, when I was goth in high school, had MORE makeup than this horrible excuse for a Pau'an.

And that's not even the lowest hanging fruit criticism I could chuck at this garbage excuse for a Star Wars show.

So far it's shaping up to be objectively worse than Soylo.

Now if you criticize the terrible acting by the Turd Sistuh, you are racist.

Either she is a shit actor or the part is written shitty for her. Either way, the character is more irritating than child Leia.

I get what they are trying to accomplish with the part, making her over eager/ambitious like Anikin was in Attack of the Clones on his path to the dark side. However, she is way over the top with it.

She is nowhere to be seen in A New Hope and nobody is hunting the Jedi down, so we can assume she got force choked somewhere along the way by Darth Vader for fucking up.

Just an internet rumor, but I hear Vader kills her in the last episode.

Wouldn’t be surprised. She’s not around for SW:Rebels, unlike the other inquisitors shown, so somehow she’s out of the picture. Either redemption arc, or dead, although give how throughly unlikable the character is, probably the latter.

I’m still curious how they are going to get around the huge hole in canon in that they apparently killed the Grand Inquisitor in ep. 2, but he was very much alive and still in charge later in Rebels.

No, it's probably much worse. She's gonna fail upward, and gets promoted to middle management. Razz
