    people want taika waititi to be in everything because he's handsome and charming but him as boba fett makes basically no sense

    Why? Temuera Morrisson is getting a bit up there for any non-CG movie where he removes his helmet (no problem with him doing it voice-only though), and they're both the same ethnicity.

    dude just because they're the same color doesn't mean they're well-suited for the same role

    suggesting taika waititi, a notorious goofball and predominantly comedic actor, for a role which is historically pretty humorless, is weird

    God I want a movie to delve into how Boba Fett dealt with seeing his face on every single clone trooper and knowing that then turned into the Imperial army and what he has to say about all of that.

    I saw a comment somewhere about how his ship being named Slave One could be read as a comment on his relationship with the clone troopers, which I thought was kind of interesting.

    Doesn't Jango own Slave One in episode 2 though?

    It strikes me as sorta similar to when Idris Elba got brought up for every role played by a black person. He’s the next hot fan casting commodity.

    they have laid the foundation for a really interesting story about boba fett, but I doubt they'll leverage very much of it, if any

    dude's feelings on his dad could well be....let's say, conflicted, and there's a lot you could do there about that, and legacies (it is star wars after all), and war

    Looking at the picture before reading the tweet, I thought 'David Decogney as Boba Fett? Strange choice, but I guess I could see it'

    you're right

    fox mulder should play boba fett

    I mostly just like the drawing

    But I would definitely like to see Watiti directing more things. Seeing his take on Boba Fett would probably be a whole lot of fun

    Has Taika Waititi ever played anyone even remotely stoic or tough

    He did play a vampire who killed people, but he played him as basically a fancy-lad

    Comedic actors are often really good at playing dramatic roles.

    Yeah okay I know it's weak but THAT'S A RAD DRAWING THOUGH.

    Christopher Judge is a goofball in real life! And he was Teal'c and Kratos!

    now, what I would like from Taika re: star wars is to play another Mandalorian, like maybe he's the first Mandalorian that teenage Boba Fett meets who wasn't a clone of his dad

    Emfys Nest question
    Is she an EU character or something? She mentions her mother about 8 times in one scene, but its never explained who her mother is I don't think?

    Nope
    just the previous leader of the gang, I guess

    That's so weird!

    Why?
    She mentions her mother multiple times in the same speech, the no good reason to do that unless you're going to introduce her mother or reveal it's someone we know.
    This movie full of dangling threads that go nowhere, but I guess that's what happens when you fire the directors at the last second

    I think we just have to disagree on this
    I don't think every name dropped or person mentioned has to be a setup for a later reveal. All she really says was, my mom told me this story, she saw this bad stuff happen, she and this gang stood against people like Crimson Dawn and now I run it
    That doesn't feel particularly like they're setting anything else up, from my perspective

    Sorry

    He does. He steals it from the people who enslaved him and names it that as a symbol that he wouls never be anyones slave again.

    A stance that is pretty interesting from the guy who goes on to create a slave race with his face.

    Technically Sifo-Dyas created them. Jango just took a paycheck* for the rights to use his DNA. And I guess he also got a protection contract from Dooku or something considering he fucks off to Geonosis and gives his life on the side of the Separatists

    fighting against his own clones

    YOU KNOW WHAT, MAYBE ATTACK OF THE CLONES IS A BAD MOVIE?

    *a paycheck named Boba

    why did Jango care so much about having his own clone son?

    You know, I kinda hope a big subtext of an eventual Boba Fett movie is "Fuck Jango".

    When I first heard 'The Clone Wars' as a kid I definitely did not imagine the Clones in question as being the good guys

    Which I guess they weren't, really

    I much, much, prefer the explanation of 'The Clone Wars' from Dark Force Rising. It makes way more sense than the movie treatment.

    Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.

    You're supposed to go through ep2 thinking well the clones are gonna be bad guys

    and the script goes full mobius strip to keep up that illusion and completely eats its own tail to the point where absolutely nobody makes any sense at all

    like what if Obi-Wan got to Kamino and they told him "Oh yeah the Jedi ordered this" and he met Jango and they were all "Uh so you're our army now" and he was like yeah and they were all "cool, cool" and then Obi-Wan called Palpatine and asked him and Palpatine was all oh yeah he told me about this sorry for wasting your time

    I mean it'd still be a bad movie but at least it would star humans that communicate and are on sides of a conflict.

    A lot of stuff starts to make sense about the prequels when you find out that Lucas wrote the treatment and then set some riddiculous deadlines for himself that forced him to write the actual scripts way too fast.

    I still say an easy fix* for AOTC is to not show the Clones in armor until the rescue scene.

    Then you'd be like:
    "Yay! The Clone Army is here to save the day!"
    "...why do they look like Stormtroopers?"
    "Oh, shit."

    *Note, I did not say comprehensive fix.

    The fact that the eventual army of the oppressors are first hailed as conquering heroes is one of the cleverest pieces of commentary in all of star wars.

    It was absolutely and without question 100% deliberate that chronologically the first time you see Stormtroopers in Star Wars, you are happy to see them. The whole theme of that trilogy is "how people can be manipulated into cheering the rise of fascism", as shown in the incredibly subtle line "so this is how liberty dies... to thunderous applause".

    if anything the hamhanded political commentary in the prequels is as relevant as ever.

    Id say it is a certainty that when Lucas was planning his epic story about the fall of a rebublic that becomes an empire he was thinking about what that means for its army.

    Boba could use his appearance to infiltrate places to do bounty stuff. Maybe no one knows what Boba looks like, and the fact he shares his face with billions of clones would be his secret weapon. Then set his story in the period where the Empire is phasing out the clones.

    I mean, I know you didn't like them

    But TFA and TLJ are 100% about how complacency and inaction can lead to problems that were thought to be defeated or forgotten rising up, more powerful than ever, and that the younger (and more diverse) generation must stand on its own and forge it's own path forward to overcome it, rather than just rely on what worked before

    Which is uh


    Pretty timely?
