You will break the internet if you are able to pull that off and show everyone video evidence of your feat. That is, right before the Disney po-po show up to haul you away.
Yeah, think my wife and kids might notice me missing, especially since i have to carry the backpack full of everything we've ever owned around the park.

In the 1990s I was on the Star Tours ride with my dad when he suggested we didn't wear the seatbelts to see how the flight simulator would feel without them on. When we took them back off after the Disney person left, a recording of C3P0 pops up saying "Oh my! It appears some of our passengers don't have their safety devices properly fastened. We can't take off!"

Pretty embarrassing for 21-year-old Muck and my 47-year-old dad, but we gave it a shot.
I remember that happening when I went on that ride once. Wasn't you, as I didn't start going to WDW as an adult until the year 2000.

My wife and kids and I went last November and the First Order stormtroopers saluted me because I had a T-shirt with the imperial logo on it. My daughters (then 6) were like OMG Daddy knows so much about Star Wars that the STORMTROOPERS KNOW WHO HE IS. I perpetuated that thought the rest of the trip.

I had two troopers threating to take me in for questioning. My daughter (5) was genuinely worried they were going to take me, we had explain it was pretend after they left. You get saluted, I get threatened.

That sh** is the best. In 2013 we were at the ticket gate at Hollywood Studios before they opened and had to wait about 10 minutes. I had a Boba Fett t-shirt on (my wife made us all tees for that trip) and the two Stormtroopers on top of the roof that covers the tickets checkers gave me sh** for probably 10 minutes. Whole crowd was laughing.

Fett? We don't need his scum.
Totally overrated. Seriously sir, get a better t-shirt.
Dude got killed by a blind guy who got a lucky shot off. And you bought the t-shirt. LOL.
Mam, mam, yes up here. Mam, this is what a real man looks like (then does "call me" )
Sir, is that your youngling? Yeah the one with the Lord Vader shirt. Yeah that kid has it together unlike you. He get's it.

This is pretty cool. This is the first depiction of Anakin and Padme, drawn in 1993. (Originaly done for a trading card game before Lucas pulled it.)



Story here: http://brianashmore.blogspot.com/search/label/Padme

This artist could've very well been the inspiration behind the original TPM teaser poster, with Anakin's shadow in the shape of Vader.

That Anakin looks better...

This Padme looks better:

Agreed on Padme.

That Anakin looks more like Dexter though.

Yep.
Quote:

My concept was to depict a younger, pre-Vader Anakin Skywalker brooding over the shoulder of his wife and the mother of Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa. Presumably, only Leia had been hidden from Anakin and that is why this image is sans baby Leia.
But the interesting thing is that Leia mentions remembering her real mother in ROTJ.

So even though that's no longer accurate, at that point in time it would've made more sense to assume that Leia was the one they kept, while Luke was hidden on Tatooine.

I didn't think Anakin knew he had a son until Empire (or end of ANH at the earliest)....

did she plop out the baby and keep it hidden like a kid hiding candy?

Then again, that's also in conflict with Vader not knowing Luke had a sister...

Either one seems to contradict what was known from the OT.
Brian Earl Spilner
How long do you want to ignore this user?
AG
The only storyline that would've made sense and not contradicted the OT would've been something like this:

  • Vader thinks Padme is dead, just like we see in ROTS.
  • Padme pops out the twins. (Vader didn't know it was twins.)
  • Luke is taken to Tatooine. (Maybe the excuse is they don't want Vader to find both babies.)
  • Padme is still alive/healthy, and keeps Leia for a few years on Naboo.
  • She eventually dies from unknown causes. (Maybe suicide?)
  • Then Leia is adopted by the Organas, who were close friends of Padme's.

Makes me wonder why Lucas didn't just do that and not have to worry about contradicting himself.

I guess he really just wanted to have everything perfectly wrapped up in ROTS without any time jumps.

yikes. I hope Kathleen Kennedy and the story group is a bit more involved with this trilogy to map out a structure before any filming takes place.


What makes you think she has any idea how to map out a trilogy?

BuzzFeed claiming the new trilogy is BASED on KOTOR is BS, right?

She doesn't map out anything, and neither does the Story Group. That's not any of their job, though Kennedy is responsible for assembling the team that will map it out.

Interesting.

Is there a difference between Knights of the Old Republic and the Old Republic? Rather, if true, does this rule out Benioff & Weiss doing Old Republic stuff? Or is KOTOR the Old Republic? I'm not familiar with anything outside of the movies.

Yeah, I realize that. But is it the only Old Republic content out there? Like, when everyone talks about the Old Republic, are they talking about this game? Or are there multiple Old Republic books as well? And B&W can still be diving into all that?

There are multiple books and games. I think KOTOR kicked it all off. Most of the books are now legends. The Old Republic is a mmo that I think technically would exist before KOTOR. The main character of KOTOR visits the ancient sith world.

Edit, I might be wrong on the order, but it's something like 10000 years before Palps

I think it's safe to say that D&D will be making an Old Republic trilogy. I also think it's safe to say from their history that we will get something that is largely adaptation. I think the story has taken those two points and inferred that they will be adapting KOTOR.

For one, there are not three movies in KOTOR. Second, the game itself revolves around a twist that really makes it work, which everyone already knows.

I think it's most likely that we'll get a story based in the general era of KOTOR, about 4000 years before the classic trilogy. In this era you have:

- no Rule of Two
- a Sith Empire, so one or more Sith Lord's and lots of Dark Force Users, plus plenty of non-Force using soldiers, fleets, etc.
- The Old Republic, as opposed to the prequel trilogy's Galactic Republic. That change happens after the Jedi and the Jedi-Sith War. The movies will likely take place long before that.
- Old Republic with a standing military
- Jedi arguably at the height of their power

I think a trilogy that essentially takes place just before the events of the now non-canon KOTOR makes sense. This story can feature some characters beloved by fans like Bastilla Shan, HK-47, and Jolee Bindo. Probably involving the wars with the Mandalorians that led to the fall of Revan and Malak and the ultimate destruction of the Sith Empire.

There are a lot of wars back to back in that era that could serve as the basis for a series of films, probably mashed up into something fresh.
