Is your name Bart???
Maybe, maybe not
I'm not alone in remembering that? I hope the ST can deliver the male version of slave Ahsoka Leia. That brief shot of Vader's abs wasn't enough.
I know the Aayla fan in me was.
lol It's ******* art, people. Good art at that. Glad the Wook people fought it out and won.
Here's a theory from Brent Friedman on why he thinks TCW won so few awards during its five year run.
But if I remember correctly didn't Dave Filoni say that people would be surprised at how little they actually spent making the show. Surely they weren't spending much more on production than Transformers Prime or similar CG shows. If the B&W clip in the Meet Chopper video is any indication, will Star Wars Rebels really cost that much less to make?
It didn't win because it was expensive? ..Pffffffft..
You should have posted the edit where Bart is replaced by WAC-47. That one was great.
Didn't even know that existed
A free 'like' to whomever can dig it up.
It's funny considering the real Padme isn't near as curvy.
This topic reminds me of the bit in the season 1 set where you can see all the character sketches and concept art. They show Aayla's character design, but with a note from The Cowboy Hatted Jackass to the artist to make her hips wider. This was no doubt followed by Filoni's "Plokool," sign and most definitely an, "amirite, guys?" To the boys in the room.
It could have been worse. There could have been a call for the widening of the Snippy Hips.
My thought on the Padme butt shots was, Are they trying to shoot this from Anakin's point of view?
Oh, the things she does to get him alone...
During Assassin Ahsoka leans over the balcony on Alderaan and the "camera" angle sort of forces the viewer's gaze on her arched-back-emphasized posterior. And this is the pre-timeskip 14 year old too.
^ I'm at work so I can't check, but let me guess. Assassin (Tsss more Buttassin or sumtin Tsss) was directed by Davey boy, was at it?
Nope. Some other guy.
(I really need to learn how to make proper links. Posting urls is so old-school.)
Oh, well I'm sure he had input into the episode since that's HIS waifu up there on the screen.
To be fair though, wasn't it GL's idea to give Ahsoka so skimpy an outfit in the first place? And HE'S the one who said Ahsoka was 11!
Assassin was a terrible episode anyway; I do remember wondering why Ahsoka didn't freeze her ass off (yes, you see what I did there) wearing a tube top and looking out at snow-capped mountains.
I do think the outfit was Lucas' idea though.
And this discussion is starting to get a bit too heavy. (No, a Doc Brown, weight has nothing to do with it.)
What about that Weapons Factory line in which Obi-Wan accuses Anakin of always thinking with his lightsaber?
Well, he WOULD know wouldn't he?
That arc was filled with great little moments and banter. I especially love the bit with Obi Wan, Anakin, and Luminara when she's restrained and about to be brain worked. Kenobi was SO enjoying messing with Luminara there/secretly loving the sight of her all tied up.
Finally have a soundtrack, don't think it's complete but probably as close as well get.
I noticed, many of those tracks come from the final season, especially the final arc of S5. I'd buy those tracks. The links provided on the site lead to the 2008 film soundtrack. Color me disappointed, I already have it.
Good news! You can download the music directly via this link: http://www.kevinkiner.com/mp3music/CloneWars
Thank you so much! *squeeeeeeee*
Edit: If you, or anyone else, would mind helping me figure out which episodes these tracks come from... I notice each track is labeled, but some don't seem to correspond to the episode listings. I cross-referenced with the production codes, too. It seems there aren't any tracks from the Rako Hardeen arc, but I'm pleased to hear many tracks from the big finale! The music in that arc was fantastic!
How did Savage attain his Force powers? He didn't seem to have any that were noticeable when Ventress took him from his village. Was it Talzin's magic that transformed him or somehow via Dooku's training?
I think his performance during the test Ventress gave was implying that he had latent Force-sensitivity. One of the tests is their performance in the dark, and we know about the Force's ability to overcome the shortcomings of the eyes, no? He also seems to be the fastest (Jedi reflexes?), the strongest and the most aware of his surroundings.
I think the magic was the equivalent of steroids. Speeds up the process and/or increases ability.
Force powers being trained into a person doesn't really happen in Star Wars. If they have Force powers, they either had them all along (by far the most common), or they were given Force powers with some kind of magic, like Nightsister magic, Sith artifacts or something like that.
Generally you can't get Force powers doing push-ups, meditating, or by having an old dude shock you with Force lightning and tell you to get mad.
Just the way I see it. Hope this helps!
He possessed latent Force-sensitivity, but among the Nightbrothers, he was never trained to cultivate or manifest his abilities. The Nightsisters' ritual at their village brought his power to the surface, and likely enhanced it considering the sheer degree of power he evidenced, but even then we see that he was still very raw. His training under Dooku and later Maul allowed Savage to truly control and hone his abilities.
Pretty much this. The Dathomirians, being descendants of Nightsisters who interbred with Zabraks, all have a genetic Force potential within them. The degree to which they are trained to master their abilities, however, varies depending on one's gender (which is to say for a male, there's no formal training whatsoever).
