    Bad Batch is getting a second season next near. So I guess we'll don't get the looming mass retiring of clones this season.

    It looks like the perfect balance of Anime bullshit and Star Wars window dressing, so sign me the fuck up.

    Is that the voice cast for the dubs version? Because I'm That Guy and watch everything with subs, not dubs, and that's going back to imported kung fu movies goddammit not anime bullshit so I'm sorry it's just who I am.

    I dunno, looks hella Star Wars to me in a lot of places. Wasn’t some Japanese cinema part of the inspiration for Lukas for the original trilogy, too?

    But specifically Kurosawa's "The Hidden Fortress" has been pointed out as quite similar to the orginal Star Wars, although Lucas has said that it's mostly coincidence although he was directly inspired by the movie being told from the perspective of two peasants.
    The one thing that really struck me about The Hidden Fortress was the fact that the story was told from the [perspective of] the two lowest characters. I decided that would be a nice way to tell the Star Wars story, which was to take the two lowest characters, as Kurosawa did, and tell the story from their point of view, which in the Star Wars case is the two droids.

    I would have paid good money to be there when giant nerd George Lucas pooped his pants meeting Akira Kurosawa.

    Oh, did that making-of thing actually just go up? I just watched it, figured it was a couple of months old. Honestly, they should have just had the kid that did the body work for Luke play him. Decent enough resemblance and everything about that scene tells you “that’s Luke Motherfucking Skywalker.”

    They show the script they gave to everyone and the stage direction is literally “It’s PLO KOON. He’s not actually dead.”

    Dave Filoni banking on the believability of "Dave Filoni revives a personal favorite who was absolutely, 100%, dead. Everyone groans at his bullshit" is pretty funny tbh

    also he definitely kept all that concept art for himself

    His fighter got shot down and crashsploded. On Star Wars that probably counts as a flesh wound.

    I mean, Palpy apparently walked away from getting Vader'd down the central shaft in the Death Star, then the Death Star exploding around him and went on to live another 30 some odd years on a secret planet hidden somewhere in the galaxy and had the gumption to build up an entire new fleet of planet killing Star Destroyers.

    A fighter getting blown out from around a named character wouldn't even need stitches.

    Are games fair game here?



    I guess this didn't come out in 2019 like I thought it did? That spaceflight stuff looks nice though, I wonder if there will be a podracing section too

    If Plo Koon was to come back, it would be in Bad Batch or something, not Mandalorian. But in terms of leak hiding, the producers should have told different groups it was Plo Koon, Adi Gallia, or Yaddle. Whichever one ended up on leaker Youtube videos could then be recognized to be untrustworthy.

    If we're going that route it shoulda been Kit Fisto.

    Everybody loves Kit Fisto.
