Who says that a Jaina Solo/Ben Skywalker team can't get along like Obi Wan/Anakin in the PT?
I'm not sure what you mean. Is getting along like Obi-Wan/Anakin in the PT supposed to mean they get along well...not at all...somewhere in between?
Or are you just saying that a female Jedi can fit in fine?
I don't mean the whole I saved you master... But a two Jedi team, one more senior, the other just as skilled but less experienced. They can divide up if need be or can team up. Think Obi Wan and Anakin spliting up on different missions in EP 2 that rejoin in the end to fight the bad guys... Jaina and Ben mission in EP 7, they both go different ways in 8, they lead a Jedi army in 9. Jaina will fit fine if they want a female lead, my bet is they will use her.
I too have been wondering how (if at all) Disney will deal with the Red Sith.
They shouldn't touch on the origins of the Sith at all. The various comics and novels over the years have done that well enough, and we don't need Disney messing everything up.
Well, ToR claimed Drommund Kaas was the 'ancestral' Sith homeworld. So shrug.
The origins of the Sith will be toyed with again and again. We thought the Sith Order was founded in 24,500 BBY once upon a time, after all.
I want more news. I am getting more grumpy...
... and on another note, does everyone recall that Apocalypse was delayed? I point at this news as the cause, now. I would lay bets that the Jagged sections were rewritten...
... and the only reason I can see for Daala surviving is because she's in the Sequel Trilogy. But I hope not
In recent years, the Red Sith have increasingly become less central to the history of the Sith anyway.
Case in point, when Dawn of the Jedi is done, I highly suspect we'll view the Force Wars as more important than the Hundred-Year Darkness, with the Red Sith little more than the linguistic origin of the term "Sith Lord", as opposed to the grand origins of darkness that it once appeared back in TOTJ's day.
Worst case scenario, they rewrite the meaning of the word "Sith" and we just need a retcon to explain the Red Sith being named after the dark side order, rather than vice versa. (And there's already the background for that anyway thanks to Adas, so they could just say the [Adas Species] renamed itself after their first Rakata encounter.)
It was a world in the Original Sith Empire and the Sith changed their homeworld every Sunday
So initially I felt that the EU (post ROTJ) was toast. But as time has passed I've become a little more optimistic that the EU may stay mostly maintained.
The one concern I have is Chewbacca's death. Is Vector Prime going to be wiped out and thereby the rest of the EU following it? On one hand George approved Chewbacca's death. On the other hand there are reports that Peter Mayhew signed a contract that if he were in Episode III he would also be in Episodes VII-IX.
I realize this has been discussed ad nauseum, but where are people standing on their thoughts about this just a little over a month since D-Day?
I'd be happy enough simply to get a Star Wars: Chewbacca novel that explained his absence.
The hilarious irony could be that he ended up with the best individual storyline of the NJO-to-ST period, as he'd have been able to have his own solo adventure, untouched by LOTF and FOTJ.
And, heck, I've wanted a Vong Warlord novel for years, so a novel about a captive Chewbacca single-handedly waging war against a rogue Vong survivor who had conquered his own planet would be right up my alley. Throw in some Vong biotic implants, and you've even got the reason Chewie appeared dead in the Force, voila.
Not surprising really either when you think about it.
King of Dromund Kaas kills all other Sith Kings. Dromund Kaas declared homeworld. King of Ziost kills all other Sith Kings. Ziost now declared homeworld. King of Korriban beats all other Sith Kings. Korriban declared homeworld. Rinse and repeat. Not like a society ruled by the biggest ego is going to care about historic loyalty.
Bah, that would be annoying. Though I could definitely see that happening. It would just open the floodgates to the early Republic era turning into another Jedi-vs-Sith morass. With any luck the TotJ explanation will be preserved.
If that happens, it will only confirm my theory that Dark Horse want to go down In history putting out the last respectable story before Star Wars jumped the shark for good
The Freedon Nadd Uprising and Dark Lords of the Sith imply that the Red Sith were already powerful before the Exiles showed up. Golden Age of the Sith implies the opposite.
Maybe there will be a comic series about the Hundred-Year Darkness.
I also wonder if Dawn of the Jedi will be relevant to the post-Legacy GFFA.
They aren't going to follow the post rotj eu books, deal with it. george wrote his own script that is going to be used and it was written before the thrawn trilogy came out so...
Were you responding to me? I was NOT talking about whether or not they'll follow the post-ROTJ books.
no just the general people who were saying that it was going to follow it...
Michael Arndt says hi.
Really? How nice of him.
If Lucas was writing the script for Episode VII, it wouldn't be done until a like a week after they finished shooting.
And sometimes he still goes back to make revisions. Again. And again. And again.
You so know there's a line in his will that instructs his executors to finally release the definitive story of the Tragedy of Darth Vader after his death.
There's also a star beside that line and a footnote that dictates that it must go through about a hundred alterations until the money to alter it just isn't there anymore.
The agreement seems to be a retcon book that follows his adventure. Some theories are he survives the moon strike, or the moon strike was a clone of him that didn't know it was a clone... With Peter Mayhew signed for 789, it is a good bet Chewie will survive. It isn't like he got a lightsaber through the chest. Something Darth Maul managed to survive...
