Hell with it, let's do a separate thread. Final trailer now live:

the only way I'll pirate this is if the Herzog vs other actors' dialogue ratio is the same as in the trailers

So they always freeze their prey in carbonite?

Also, "best in the parsec"?

This looks cool, but it's a perpetual annoyance that every new Star Wars release has to take these little details from the original movies and reframe them as if they were always meant to be canonical elements of this world.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Tuesday, 29 October 2019 12:45 (one month ago) link

Hey, why bother with world building if you're not going to show off the world you've built?

I hope there is an Ewok Assassin Squad in this.

Moodles otm. Every moment where like a character says 'stop being so SALACIOUS, you CRUMB' and then turns to look directly at the camera while winking furiously and saying 'DO YOU GET IT, GUYS? DID YOU PICK UP ON THAT REFERENCE? ISN'T IT A HILARIOUS CALLBACK?' makes me retch.

Except maybe for parts of SOLO I haven't found the Disney-era fanservice to be all that winky and egregious? But I am a true SW stan and not to be trusted tbrr

My wife and I did the three-years prepaid Disney+ plan for the 20% savings, that's how ready I am for this.

Star Wars IX will be my last SW

may the Farce be with you

Which one was the last one? Is this new one the 9th one? I'm pretty comfortable being done. I don't think my wife has even seen the original trilogy, and my kids don't give a poop.

Whenever I see this thread (and the show title) my first reaction is always that it's an announcement for a Star Wars themed casino/resort. Which ... give it time, I guess.

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 29 October 2019 14:28 (one month ago) link

The resort part is already happening

I meant like Vegas-style, not Disney style. Or is there a Vegas Star Wars resort opening, too?

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 29 October 2019 14:36 (one month ago) link

I agree with Moodles that this should ideally be a musical, set in 1920s Chicago, and if possible called Chicago the Musical: a Star Wars Story.

Andrew Farrell, Tuesday, 29 October 2019 14:43 (one month ago) link

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 12 November 2019 19:53 (one month ago) link

Do you watch any television?

I do, I watch the news from different sources. Sometimes I see things that are completely against my cultural nature. I was raised with Latin and Ancient Greek and poetry from Greek antiquity, but sometimes, just to see the world I live in, I watch “WrestleMania.”

An unexpected choice.

You have to know what a good amount of the population is watching. Do not underestimate the Kardashians. As vulgar as they may be, it doesn’t matter that much, but you have to find some sort of orientation. As I always say, the poet must not close his eyes, must not avert them.

So you’ve been watching “Keeping Up With the Kardashians?”

I’m starting to discover it. I’m curious; that’s my guiding principal.

In all seriousness, there are so many great quotes in that interview that cutting and pasting is pointless.

Favreau has made some highly successful films recently; did you feel an element of pressure working with him?

I do not know what other films he has made.

You don’t?

No.

Yeah, Herzog strikes me as an abyss-gazer, for sure.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 04:01 (four weeks ago) link

I do wonder if the Netflixification of how we watch TV has knackered people's ability to watch stuff week-by-week - like, I'm pretty sure that some stuff will get tied up in the last few episodes. It can't be 100% episodic, there has to be at least some thread connecting things.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 3 December 2019 16:43 (one week ago) link

i more bring it up not to question the plotting of the showrunners but rather to suggest that this wasn't necessarily the disconnected limited one-shot storyline one might think aka there are still unexplained mysteries with these villagers.

So I realize that I have no one to blame but myself for this, but I had a carefully worked out theory in my mind that Yoda, whatever species he is, looked the way he did because he was 900 years old, i.e. he had once been considerably taller with shorter ears and was possibly less green as well. I assumed he had lived 900 years through his supreme mastery of The Force, not because he comes from a species that regularly lives 900 years old (and btw the 50 year "babyhood" or w/e makes no fucking sense even if his species lives 900 years - most animals don't spend 5+% of their lives as infants).

You’re not alone in that first thought.

Loads of insects are grubs for months and only mature for days or hours though.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 3 December 2019 19:38 (one week ago) link

he's not really an infant tbf, he walks around and drinks soup out of bowls much more effectively than my 2 year old. baby yoda catchier than advanced toddler yoda

adam, Tuesday, 3 December 2019 19:39 (one week ago) link

yeah, he's basically a 2.5 year old, which means that 900 is basically 45 which means that Yoda really should have taken better care of himself. The Force is no substitute for healthy eating and regular exercise.

silverfish, Tuesday, 3 December 2019 19:53 (one week ago) link

all them frogs catch up with you

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 3 December 2019 20:03 (one week ago) link

I’ve been comparing him to my 22 month old and thinking they’re pretty close. Baby Yoda is less messy. That thing in the first couple of episodes was a stroller, not a crib.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Tuesday, 3 December 2019 20:33 (one week ago) link

― silverfish, Tuesday, December 3, 2019 2:53 PM (one hour ago) bookmarkflaglink

But I mean that's still doing it proportional to human years, whereas basically no other species works that way. Tortoises live like 120 years but it doesn't take them over a year to walk.

as we all know, that's because blobby's larval stage occurred outside the human conception of spacetime and attempting to render his extradimensional form as an image would shatter a human mind

it was only once he was extruded into our four-dimensional space by forces still unknown that we could experience his presence, albeit only as a fragment of his true image

The Tuskan Raiders teleporting to 9 ft away was kinda hilarious, then continuing the comedy by doing that weird, cagey sign language, which The Mandalorian initiates by being David Byrne in the Once In A Lifetime video.
