LOL, far enough into the future that no EU has been written for it yet?
If Disney ever announces a CW reboot (includes TCW), I'll welcome our Disney overlords with open arms.
**** the Clone Wars. It's been done. Twice.
Sure, but I'd get some serious schadenfreude out of seeing Filoni's retconning get retconned.
Filoni: You can't do that to my canon!
Disney: Too bad.
I am saying they aren't giving us continuity at all, because I don't realistically see how its still one story and they can continue to say that its still one story at this point.
your point being? you neither can see air, love or your soul.. so does all that not exist, just because you can not see it?
if you'd have read Star Wars and History (brilliant book!) you'd know their approach and how all fits together "from a certain point of view".. exactly the same way History books do... there are many versions of the bible, all with a truth in it despite inconsistencies. All tales are "from a long time ago", historians perspective and as such retellings. The original events have continuity, the historians can fight over their interpretations of course..you'd be surprised how many facts in real life are mere assumptions, educated guesses, theories, and else presented as facts out of habit, or else. so why should SW be any different?
How is telling me the multimedia project happened then telling me so many other contradictory things also happened continuity? This isn't "from a certain point of view," this is telling us EU fans that Lucas and LFL really wanted Star Wars to be like Star Trek all along. I am well aware of historians and biblical scholars fighting over interpretations, and all Lucas and LFL seems to be doing is being petty while the C-canon contributors have to bow before LFL, so why shouldn't Star Wars be better than that.
never said it can't be better or shouldn't be merely that as bad as things are, so long they do not announce that continuity goes to hell.. that it is not even one step in that direction yet!
Look at Doctor Who continuity.. only because things seem impossible does not mean they are yeah he got timetravel, but often stuff is resolved without that too.
Just do what the real world does: "That history was made up by a dictator who was trying to hide the truth of his genocide against his own people."
Thanks to Ceiran's prior post, I read : "That history was made up by the Doctor who was trying to hide the truth of his genocide against his own people"
And it still made sense.
This being Star Wars, I think its more likely this:
Dave Filoni: You said that TCW would be untouched and left under my supervision!
Darth Mickey: I am altering the deal. Pray I don't alter it any further.
Dave Filoni: ...this deal keeps getting worse all the time!
Sure, its been done to death but why mess with classical lines?
Filoni approved, of course.
big news big news BIG NEWS
TCW Bonus Material will be only 2 arcs... a third was trashed due to it would have contradicted continuity! HA! as in another death of Aurra Sing.. they trashed the Bounty Hunter arc with Sing, Fett and other hunters. Leaves us to wonder what other two arcs are left?
PS: I love the line about TCW team being shocked about the mild reaction of fans to the cancellation... still laughing hard!
Exterminaaaaate! Those Daleks were right from the beginning, that evil Doctor needs to be exterminated.
Then again, I still wait for a Doctor Who parody in the GFFA... with an Army of Astromech-Daleks fighting Dr. Evazan who is so skilled in changing his appearance and face through surgery.. only surpassed by Bib Fortuna's lives as spiderpod (*sings the Spiderpig song for Bib*) and his other incarnations..
Yeah no TCW. We don't need more imbecilic contradictions
Praise Based Disney
The already did that with T-canon and proceeding to directly contradict established facts of the universe using the power vested in T-canon. Contradictions on the level of TCW never should have happened if they seriously expect me to believe that its still one story. TCW doesn't fit with the universe as I have always seen it, the Tantive IV was the CR70 corvette in RotS, Obi-Wan had never fought Grievous before Utapau, and Anakin and Dooku had never had a rematch in between AotC and RotS.
so would you also say that Qui Gon never was Obi Wans Master cause Ben said in TESB he was Yodas apprentice? or that there never is a gap between scenes for EU to fill cause the movies showed no gap/time passing in their fast cuts?
I'll admit a part of me will miss TCW (it had its moments, and the new designs and characters was its saving grace), but Filoni's smug behavior in front of the camera really got to me after a while. "Yeah I know some of you are bummed we did XYZ, but y'know... that's just how the wookiee(pedia) crumbles. Heheheh."
I hate to wish ill on anyone, but.... I sort of hope he's the one shocked by the reaction. Because no celebrity should take their fans for granted as that man did.
Glad Aurra survived. I imagine the two arcs left are probably cyber-Trench and Clovis's.
Posts of that kind are NEVER okay.
No, because Lucas had no idea what he was going to do for the PT, and there is no need to take that statement literally. I have no problem with G-canon superseding everything, other than pointless changes made by the OT SE, but T-canon seems to exist solely for the express purpose of changing things established in C-canon. They told me all of those things I mentioned had happened and I believed them, and now I have no idea what to believe happened anymore, other than what I was already told.
But... but... what am I supposed to do with this cool hat now?
(I did get a laugh from the tepid thing, too. Also Eric from TF.Net's oh so desperate efforts to get his favorite show saved. Look, I liked parts of TCW but it never had anywhere close to the depth that the man kept on trying to attribute it to in his weekly hilarious reviews.)
Filoni's check list (the go-to list for TCW episodes):
Needs shoehorned OT dialogue
Ahsoka must handshake an OT character
Needs my boy Plo Koon
Needs my boy Embo
Needs more OT moments.
Although I will miss clone episodes. It's a shame that we haven't had another Rookies-type episode imo.
Henry Gilroy's reaction to his Cargo of Doom review was hilarious. Eric should stop.
Man, I'd give anything to rewrite the frickin' Mauldalorian arc. The fanfic bug has bitten me pretty hard.
