One of my favorite things about those books was the eventual uncovering on who the mole inside the imperial palace was. Both the identity and mechanics of their information gathering and then how the new republic leveraged that info.

Yoda does it again! After the best round of voting yet, Yoda continues to tear through the competition and has knocked out the #1 seed Duel of the Fates in decisive fashion. (Bracket results.)

This match was dead even for a while, until Yoda ran away with it late in the game.

With Yoda having also won the Quotes Tournament, this is certainly proving that people love them some Yoda. Could this be a dark horse to win it all?

Our three other matches were huge wins for the favorites, leaving the prequels out of the Final Four entirely. (Sad to see it happen.) At least Throne Room did manage almost 20%, which is a solid showing considering its competition.

MATCH #1 --
1. Duel of the Fates (36%) vs. 8. Yoda's Theme (64%)

MATCH #2 --
4. Star Wars Main Theme (94%) vs 5. Across the Stars (6%)

MATCH #3 --
2. Imperial March (81%) vs 7. The Throne Room / End Title (19%)

MATCH #4 --
3. Binary Sunset (Force Theme) (92%) vs 11. Princess Leia's Theme (8%)

On Zahns original trilogy, you almost have to consider that half-canon. Thrawn was such a great character he forced himself into canon anyway.

Has Talon Karrde been canonized? I loved his character too. He and Thrawn were the two best things about that trilogy. Karrde was basically the smuggler version of Thrawn. His ship was badass and he had force sensitive "dogs" as bodyguards!

One of my favorite easter eggs of all time.

Just for kicks, and to continue to show how amazing John Williams is, here are a few honorable mentions that barely missed the cut to make this tournament.

Begun the Clone War Has -- Technically just the Imperial March cue within the track "Confrontation with Count Dooku and Finale", but one of my favorite uses of it. The beginning of where we all know this is going. Got so excited when I first saw this.


Anakin's Betrayal (Order 66 scene.) -- The emotion is this track is amazing and haunting.


Enter Lord Vader -- Vader marches on the Jedi Temple


Into the Trap -- You know exactly what this is.


A New Alliance -- Buh-bye Snoke.

I forgot about shadows of the empire. I liked that book. There is also one where Luke has to battle the spirit of an ancient Sith possessing one of his students, which is pretty good. Dark Apprentice, I think, is the title.

I'd never noticed the musical cue there, very nice!

Meh, Karrde was overrated.

Exactly one year ago. So much hype. So much hope. A different world, in so many ways...

I had a dream about a new Star wars movie last night featuring a younger Luke done through de-aging. I was disappointed it wasn't real when I woke up.

Seems like a good day to watch TROS again with my superfan though!

I will always associate that teaser with the experience of watching it in a crowded arena at Celebration, with the palpable excitement in the air. Then the huge reaction when Ian McDiarmid came on stage to say "Roll it again!" in a perfect Palpatine voice.



The movie itself may have disappointed, but that was a hell of a day and one awesome weekend.

(Still, I haven't rewatched it yet and I look forward to doing so.)

Final Four - Results here.

Jedi Master Yoda comes to the end of his run, losing against the Main Theme by a margin of 90% - 10% . (Winning this would have been a Herculean task, but then again, size matters not.)

Meanwhile, in a result which may surprise many -- the Imperial March gets easily dispatched by the Force Theme, losing by a margin of 64% - 36%.

Godspeed to maybe the two most powerful beings in the galaxy - Darth Vader and Yoda.

The Imperial March rocks, but every person who ever dreamed of adventure beyond their current life identifies with Binary Sunset as the moment you thought "Damn, that's exactly how I feel."

Yes! And when you re-read them, it's right there in front of you the whole time.

Just so you all know, every time I've voted for the Main Theme I've been voting for the version that Leia sings in the Christmas Special.

And your winner of the Star Wars Tracks Tournament, by a narrow margin of 57% to 43%, is...







Binary Sunset!

Thanks for voting, everyone. If we have learned anything, it's that the music of Star Wars is amazing, iconic, and probably the best film score(s) in history. I leave you all with this...







Claude!

Rogue One spin off takes place during what time?

Ok, I'm officially excited for this series.

In the years leading up to Rogue One.

It has to be prequel, considering the way Rogue One ended, and the fact that it stars one of the lead actors, who played major character in that movie, but died at the end. Thus, because they're likely not going to de-age Diego Luna back to his 20s or so, it basically has to take place somewhere in the five years or so before Rogue One.

Time moves backwards in the Star Wars universe. The farther we get into the franchise, the more "long ago" it gets.

Gotcha so we wont see any of Felicity Jones i take it then. If this gets a second season i can see Millie Brown possibly playing Leia if they want to go there but i doubt they will.

Yeah, no FJ, but a Leia appearance isn't a bad idea. Surely they've got something up their sleeve along those lines.

With the announcement of Ahsoka in Mandalorian I wouldn't be surprised to see her (or any of the cast from Rebels) in this one, too
