I was SO happy when I saw the trailer! XD

Did the narration sound like Mark Hamill to y'all?

Yeah, it sounded like him to me. I assume it was him.
I'm pumped. It looks freakin' amazing. Freaking. Awesome. Words cannot describe how excited I am for this.
Ok, what do you guys think of the remastered versions of Star Wars? Personally, I feel like every time George Lucas goes back and re-produces the movies, they get worse and worse. Everything he adds in decreases the quality of the movies. Star Wars IV-VI work so much better as 70s-80s movies than as movies written and shot in the 70s but edited in the 2000s. What's your guys' opinions on that?

Your poor question was skipped. :|

Hmmm. I agree with you. Also, you can't perfect perfection.

I don't have a problem with them enhancing the film format, but when they start messing with the actual effects, you need to be exploded with the death star. Ya know what I'm saying?

I have come to revive this thread because I love Star Wars greatly and unabashedly. I only became a fan a little more over a year ago but I had an extremely uneventful summer of 2021 and I sunk myself deeply into the franchise. I've watched all the movies and the shows (with the exception of the non-canon 2D Clone Wars series & Resistance, both of which I want to watch.)

My favorite theatrically released films are Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. My favorite un-theatrically "movie" is Siege of Mandalore, the last four episodes of The Clone Wars. They function as a movie so I consider them as a movie. They are possibly flawless and I'd love to discuss them if anybody has seen them.

I truly wouldn't be the fan I am today if it weren't for The Clone Wars show. Although I struggled to get through some episodes (particularly the first season and the movie), it really got better and better as it went on, resulting in the most brilliant content I've seen from Star Wars PERIOD. It provided us with some of the most beautifully done stories and characters such as Ahsoka Tano and Rex. It also really added so much to the prequel time period, characters, and story. It takes pre-established characters from the time period and adds so much to them. I love this show to bits, flaws and all. Plus, The Mandalorian wouldn't exist without this show and all it does to establish the Mandalorians and Mandalore with its layered backstory.

What are your guys' favorite characters, moments, and films? I would absolutely love to hear from you all!

Would I be stoned in the streets if I said the movie I liked watching the most was The Force Awakens? I came into star wars late into the game, but I'm a big fan now, even after episodes 8 and 9. I watched the Original trilogy first, then the prequels, the way it was meant to be. Actually my first exposure to star wars was the Complete Saga lego game on the wii. The Clone wars is really good overall. The force awakens was my favorite even though it was just a retread of the original. here's my ranking of star wars stuff.
1. The books. Awesome, even the weird ones like Lando and the mind harp of Sharu. I'm partway through Darth Plagueis right now. :geek:
2. Lego Star wars videos (Droid tales is hilarious, Freemakers is awesome, Yoda chronicles stuff is pretty funny)
3. Clone Wars Show, has it's duds, but some really good stuff too.
4. Force Awakens. Love the visuals, felt like updated star wars, Han Solo was amazing!
5. A New Hope I love old vfx.
6. Revenge of the sith Stunning visuals, okay story, sightly less clunky dialog.
7. Solo Love street level star wars.
8-9. Attack of the Clones, Return of the Jedi Just depends on my mood. Love some parts of both(skiff fight, Coruscant) but some moments (ewoks, Anakin romance) really really stink.
10.The Mandalorian Liked most of it, but sometimes too bleak for my mood.
11. Empire Strikes back, liked it but didn't love it. Good movie but overrated in my opinion.
12. The Bad Batch. Played it safe, but still entertaining.
13.Rise of Skywalker, Conflicting feelings on it, a few moments were fun(Babu Phrick, lightspeed Skipping{though I wish they did better with that}, but most of it was kinda meh.
14. 2d clone wars, enjoyable but pretty chaotic. Loved OP Mace Windu.
15. The Last Jedi. They've massacred my boy. Liked general hux though.
16. animated droids show: I've only seen the hour long episode about the great heap.
16. The Holiday Special: So bad, it's almost worse. :wacky:
17.Ewoks: caravan of courage. The only thing on this list I didn't like to any extent.
As for video games, I've played the Lego Complete Saga, Lego clone Wars(love the ground battles), The Force Unleashed and the android version of lego force awakens. I didn't think it would be fair to rank these on a list because video game enjoyment for me is entirely based on my mood. Lego force awakens was pretty bad though.
I haven't seen the anime series yet, but I don't typically enjoy anime stuff(except for the ghibli movie about the airplane designer) I haven't seen Ewoks: battle for endor or the animated ewoks series yet and never plan to. Haven't read the comic books but action comic books aren't my thing(I do love me some Donald Duck and Scrooge though) The leaked episode of Star wars Detours I saw was hilarious, but disney will never let that see the light of day.

Ah, yes. Star Wars. Thanks for reviving this topic, Monica Stone and Greatkindheartedbush.
As for me, I’ve seen all nine films, Solo, Rouge One, and the animated Clone Wars movie. I’ve also seen both seasons of The Mandalorian. Watched the first episode of the Clone Wars a while ago. I’ll probably check out The Book of Boba Fett show when it comes out.

Not by me, I also liked Episode VII. It’s one of my top favorites. Han Solo was the best part.

Here are my top favorite films (in no particular order):
Episode I: The Phantom Menace, IV: A New Hope, and VII: The Force Awakens. I thought Solo was pretty interesting as well.
I can’t recall any specific favorite moments, but I do like the characters Han Solo and R2-D2 and C3-PO; their interactions are fun to watch. And that droid, K-2SO (I think that’s his name?) from Rogue One was great, I really like him. I hear he’ll be appearing in the upcoming Andor show, so I’ll definitely be watching for that.

I’m curious to know: exactly how bad are the Ewoks films? I noticed them on Disney+ and have been considering watching them.

Ah, the unspeakable Holiday Special. The one film in the franchise that nobody talks about (or else they don’t know of its existence). I 100% plan to watch this in the future, I’ve heard a lot about it. \:D/

I hear a lot about The Clone Wars. It sounds interesting, but I’m not sure if I want to commit myself to watching all 7 seasons at the moment. I’ll probably watch it at some point in the future, though.

I’ve also heard a lot about The Bad Batch. Since it’s shorter, I am more interested and likely to watch it, but I’ve heard that it follows The Clone Wars. Here’s my question which I hope you all can answer: Do I need to watch the whole show The Clone Wars before watching this one, or can The Bad Batch be viewed as a standalone thing?

Overall, Star Wars is certainly an interesting franchise. Although I haven’t invested as much time into Star War as much as other franchises, it does interest me enough that I do have plans to watch more.

I've only seen the first Ewok movie but I can definitely say it's not what I'm looking for with Star Wars. It's more like a little fairy tale type story. Two kids go looking for their kidnapped parents with some ewoks. They use a few magical items when they're stuck along the way and the little girl is too whiny sometimes for me. We have it because my younger brother bought it at a yard sale years ago. You might give it a shot, but don't expect any laser battles. I personally didn't like it at all, but everyone's different. I've heard the second one's a little better.

With the Clone Wars, story arcs based on the clones (kamino invasion, the citadel, Umbara, and the episodes about Fives) or episodes about Mandalorians tend to be the best in my opinion but those build off of one another quite a bit if I remember right. The list of "essential" episodes on disney plus seems to be a little too random to be the best ones for starting off with btw.

I think the Bad Batch works pretty well as a standalone thing. If you're familiar with the prequel movies, you're pretty good to go. The only thing you really need to know from the clone wars is that the Bad Batch team has genetic enhancements(or robotic in the case of Echo) that give them some special abilities. You might want to watch episodes 1-4 of clone wars season seven first because it helps establish the bad batch team better but I don't think you really need to. The bad batch show alludes to some things that happened in the clone wars, but most of it is explained pretty quickly. mild clone wars spoiler I think might help a little
Captain Rex, a former clone leader under Anakin Skywalker, removed his brain chip(those get explained in the bad batch) and escaped the empire by faking his death.
I noticed I forgot Rogue One and the Phantom Menace on my ranking list earlier, oops. I liked phantom menace quite a bit except for JarJar. Rogue One was a little too depressing for my taste, but K2S0 was great.

Hmmm star wars star wars
I may make an essay later but the big highlights - Rise of Skywalker is utter cr*p, Empires the best one, and most of the others are mediocre.
