    10. Lucas 9 part Saga EPISODE 1: Was to focus on the origins of the Jedi Knights and how they are initiated and trained
    EPISODE 2: Introduction and development of Obi-Wan Kenobi
    EPISODE 3: Introduction and life of Vader
    EPISODE 4: There were seven different drafts of the film. At one point, they pursued buying the rights to Hidden Fortress because of the strong similarities. At one point, Luke was a female, Han was Luke's brother, Luke's father was the one in prison (interesting point for some debates) and the film featured 40 wookies
    EPISODE 5: Once written, the screenplay of Empire is almost exactly what is seen on screen. The only cut scenes were those involving wampas in the rebel base (cut because of time and unsolved technical glitches) and about two minutes of Luke/Yoda Jedi training with no real dialog.
    EPISODE 6: Leia was to be elected "Queen of her people" leaving her isolated. Han was to die. Luke confronted Vader and went on with his life alone. Leia was not to be Luke's sister.
    EPISODE 7: Third trilogy was to focus on Luke's life as a Jedi, with very few details planned out.
    EPISODE 8: Luke's sister (not Leia) appears from another part of the galaxy.
    EPISODE 9: First appearance of the Emperor.

    Have you seen the Battlefront II Galactic Conquest endings? If you win as, say, the Republic the ending will differ greatly from the canonical ending.
    -If the CIS wins they conquer the galaxy with Sidious at their helm. Anakin is killed by Dooku. Maul fights for the seppies. Jango is alive. Grievous doesn't die.
    -If the Republic wins Mace Windu kills Palpatine and the Purge never happens.
    -If the Empire wins Luke bows to Palpatine amongst a few other somewhat contradictory events.
    -If the Rebels win it goes the same as ROTJ.
    If you want to know more Wookieepedia goes a little more in-depth.

    I definitely agree with 2 or even more than 2 canon timelines.

    1. The disney official timeline which includes all the movies, clones wars, rebels, new novels and marvel star wars 2015 and beyond.

    2. The EU timeline which includes the original trilogy, the prequels, The Dark Horse comics and 99% of the legends novels.

    3. The weird timeline consisting of the original trilogy, old marvel series and some weird novels (splinter of the minds eye)

    I believe in a canon in which Maul's tattoos aren't Sith tattoos, a canon in which there's no Sith species or Rakata, a canon in which Ysalimiri and consecutive-voweled clones don't exist, a canon in which Plagueis died long before TPM, a canon in which Force-sensitivity can't be cloned, etc.

    I just keep things simple by accepting three versions of the EU:

    1) Original Trilogy Era, 1976-1990
    2) Prequel Era, 1990-2014
    3) Sequel Trilogy Era, 2014-present


    I accept most or all contradictions between stories as in-universe character perspectives. My view is that the characters are relaying the SW saga to us and that is why there are contradictions. For a saga this complex, yes, there will be contradictions.

    This "theory" covers in-universe biases and perspectives. It also addresses transmission of the SW saga to earthlings. The aspect of transmitting a Sci Fi epic across galactic epochs is interesting alone by itself.

    [​IMG]

    The opening "In A Galaxy Far, Far Away" suggests the reality that the timeline and pivotal saga events occurred a long time ago, after which time, they had to be transmitted to us in our time. That is how I put everything together and incorporate the "fairy tale motif."

    [​IMG]

    In my view of the saga, the droids have outlived the mortal human players and then were programmed to transmit the entire saga to us in our time. I believe this idea is close to what George originally arrived at in 1977 but soon abandoned. The two droids, R2D2 and C3PO, arrived on Earth in 1977 to tell us the story of this Galaxy Far Far Away.

    [​IMG]

    If you go back to the first parts of ANH, there is a "Droid Perspective" that is suggested. I don't accept the notion that C 3PO was activated by Anakin in his childhood.

    But basically, I believe the two droid "heroes" are "worker droids" that are part of a bigger, grand plan involving large mainframe, supercomputer droids like Mistress Mnemos. They have been tasked by the mainframes to keep "records" and match "story accounts" of the sentient heroes and villains.

    The droids in Star Wars are shown at times to have emotions and higher beings. Are those motifs just for kids? Probably not. The more innocent ones may be for kids. But these motifs seem to pop in every now and then to remind us that we are indeed mortal human beings and our days are numbered. For example, where did Brother Fivelines come from in Alan Moore's "Rust Never Sleeps?" Brother Five lines pops right into a comic short and welcomes the droids to the "body" of the Living God.

    Spooky? Yes. Random? Not quite. Alan Moore and Russ Manning (See Below) were following motifs, character perspectives, and "droid narrator points of view" that were present in the first SW film as George released it in 1977.

    [​IMG]

    Especially notice the many varieties of droids that George put into the original film:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Why keep records of these protagonists, human and otherwise sentient? The Long Time Ago in a GFFA motif suggests the story of this fictional Galaxy had to be transmitted to a future Galaxy. My view is that Lucas suggested all these ideas originally when ANH was released.

    Also notice how confidently the first Russ Manning newspaper strips started off, working in Mistress Mnemos and the Sidereal Age. Costancia Affair has 3PO telling Mistress Mnemos he was activated centuries ago on the planet AFFA..... What the first Russ Manning comic strips did was continue the in-universe "droid as narrator" perspective that is present in the opening scenes of ANH.

    I am reading "Last Shot" about Lando and Han and am LOVING it! I am EAGERLY awaiting Thrawn: Alliances. :D I welcome both canons together in a mash-up fashion where we get Legends characters in new contexts. =P~ Kyp Durron as an example.

    Just to offer a little bit more explanation on my last post. This is to show how I have arrived at my views on multiple story canons, contradictions, in-universe perspectives... This is a sort of "back to basics" approach.

    If it was 1977 again, and ANH is the only SW film audiences have ever seen, these are the sorts of questions people would be asking.

    Does the banner "A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far, Far Away" suggest any or all of the following:

    1) The galaxy in the Star Wars saga is a galaxy different from ours?

    2) The timeline and saga events occurred temporally long time ago?

    3) The timeline and saga events occurred at great distance in light years away from our galaxy?

    5) The events in the SW galaxy occurred at a time closer to the Big Bang or Creation Event for the known Universe?

    6) The galaxy in Star Wars may have different laws of physics than ours?



    How was the "Skywalker Saga" communicated from this distant galaxy?

    1) Recording, storage, and transmission through the two Droids is suggested



    Because we are receiving the saga "Out-Universe," the bits of story that compose the larger saga can never be disconnected from the perspectives and biases of the protagonists. Also, the fairy tale motif and intention to build a mythology can never be removed from the intentions of Lucas.

    From there we can ask, "Are the droids truly protagonists?" My answer is that they are probably not. They are programmed to serve the sentient beings. They can take sides. They are certainly not independent from the protagonists. They are part of the action and drama, but at the end of the day, their programming reflects the thoughts and intentions of their programmers. That is why the will and greater intentions of their programmers can be carried on with the droids long after they become deceased in-universe.



    MY CONCLUSIONS:

    I take an Artificial Intelligence Approach

    Under the conditions created with the "Long Time Ago" banner, there is room for two or more canons and lots of contradictions in-between. Because of the way Lucas introduced Star Wars, we can infer that the two droids are in-universe narrators who were tasked with recording and storing the "Skywalker saga" and eventually transmitting it.

    Also, the two droids have recording and storage limitations, even though their internal storage resources must be vast. Other droids are therefore responsible for transmission of other sagas within the in-universe historical timeframe.


    Building the SW saga around the concept of Artificial Intelligence, digital transmission, in-universe and out-universe perspectives is vastly fulfilling to me because it takes into account transmission of a saga across the span of galaxy birth and death.

    Why would it be important to record and transmit a story from a galaxy that has already died and the only remnants are mechanical droids? My view includes that the fictional galaxy seen in SW has already died before we get to human written history. Also, sagas from the SW galaxy may be transmitted to other galaxies besides ours. Bringing in communication of stories across the span of galactic birth and death brings in an expanded element where I hope SW will eventually venture out into.

    Given the number of strategic and general RPGs I´ve played with friends over the years, many of them being essentialy what if scenarios, I´ve allways viewed SW has having multiple timeline exsisting next to each other, without any real "main" one. So I agree with the idea of multiple canons.

    It's a little difficult to understand all that. Why would the droids need to be transmitting after the galaxy was dead? We can't receive any transmission travelling faster than light, which means even if the Star Wars galaxy was what we call Andromeda, our closest neighbouring galaxy, it would take 2.5 million years for the transmission to reach us. Also one droids account of a single point in time could reach us thousands of years after another droids account of a later point in time if the former droid was on the far side of the galaxy in relation to ours.

    Thanks for the feedback on my ideas.

    Just to clarify, although I used the word transmit, I intended to say that ANH and Making of Star Wars suggest the droids travelled to Earth with the saga recorded in their databanks. Fictively they would have touched down in 1977.

    If the Skywalker saga occurred A Long Time Ago, in a far off galaxy, this motif suggests a) the SW Galaxy existed before ours, and b) the saga from the SW Galaxy had to be communicated to our Galaxy long after the events in the saga ended. The closest story element suggested for communication is the droids. I'm not necessarily saying the saga shows the droids travelling to Earth.

    There might have been some transmitting as well... And also, if a signal takes over 2.5 million years from a neighboring galaxy, that does not bother me. The universe operates on time scales which are beyond our recognition.

    Why would a dying galaxy or planet send Droid emissaries to convey important information about their history? This question is similar to Why keep a historical record?, Why have religion?, Why keep a family scrapbook?, Why keep a journal?, Why record history? There is some important ingredient of Truth or even destiny that compelled the in-universe characters to record their stories and then send them to far off galaxies for future sentient beings.

    I'm not sure how ANH suggests that the two droids traveled to Earth? The documentaries that the droids are in are just for fun. It would also be an incredibly inefficient way to reach out to other civilisations in other galaxies.

    The way I look at it is like this. If we received a radio transmission that could be traced back to from another galaxy, and we found that the transmission was telling a story, we would then be able to recreate and act out that story. We would be able to say that this story originated millions of years ago from a galaxy far far away. In this situation we cannot know whether the story is fictional or not. Translation of these ancient transmissions could also be imperfect, leading to differing opinions on how the story should go.

    Look how ANH starts off by following the droids to show how they got to Tatooine. The first 20+ minutes might as well present the droids as the stars. The human heroes and villains are first presented (Darth, Leia, Luke) at a distance rather than from a first-person perspective. We view them in an action sequence only at a distance as they are introduced.

    EDIT:. The droids are first introduced as foreground characters. Vader, Leia, and Luke are first introduced as background characters. As ANH progresses, the human characters and droids do a reversal in regards to foreground perspective. Sometimes the droids are revisited as foreground characters. The droids almost become like in-universe narrators.

    The Journal of the Whills is also part of what I'm referring to.

    EDIT: .I am combining ANH film, novelization, and The Making of Star Wars to reach my interpretation. Consider it an interpretation of background motifs.

    Have you ever heard the idea that the Star Wars saga films are taken from the perspective of the droids? Notice how the two droids are in all the trilogies. Palpatine is out in the Sequel Trilogy but the droids are back in.

    There is an in-universe droid narrator perspective that is suggested by the the droids. The droids are also the only characters that can go out-universe. (my interpretation)

    This is my interpretation. However, I have based this interpretation on the creative process of Lucas. It is not a literal interpretation but more based on background motifs. But what could happen eventually is that those background motifs could become prominent in future SW films.

    EDIT: .I enjoy SW more through this type of perspective. The Making of Star Wars is canonical video fiction to me, more than just for fun. A documentary can add new story elements to show a greater view point/vantage point for a fictional work.

    Well it is certainly an interesting perspective, and if it makes star wars more fun for you then that is great. There is obviously no right or wrong way of thinking.

    Just interested here. What would you think if either R2 or 3PO were "killed" in EpIX?

    Ha! I don't anticipate either of the droids "dying," memory wiped, deactivated, dismantled, etc. in Ep. 9.

    If anything close to either of these occurred, both of them could still come back with some explanation. Ep. IX would have to go super-dark and sinister to show how the two droids' we're destroyed and can't come back after a certain date. It would be a big mistake. I assume we will see both droids celebrating with the heroes, at worse with a limb missing.... : )

    SW is far more fascinating when we allow the droids to go out-universe as intergalactic emissaries. George finished SW and released it in 1977. So the idea of a time capsule from that year could eventually reinvigorate the saga at some point and add closure to the background elements that George abandoned. The problem I see is the failure to bring closure and instead spin endless circles in the imagination of the public into infinity. A good saga has a beginning, middle, and end. The end should try to resolve as much plot tension as possible to satisfy the audience.

    We may never truly know when the end is reached with SW. However, the plot elements presented to us deserve to be resolved.

    The banner "A Long Time Ago In a Galaxy......" . creates too much overall tension to leave it unresolved. The resolution could take decades to explain but George just kind of left audiences hanging there with that banner. I think George originally did try to connect the dots for why and how the events in SW occurred a long, long time ago.

    Fascinating theory. I never thought much about "A long time ago...". I always figured it was just from an omniscient and certainly non-diagenic narrator.

    Hey, thanks for that feedback. The Droids being in-universe narrators could explain quite a bit. I hope that gets revisited in some way. Why do they need to be in-universe narrators? Why bother connecting the SW Galaxy to ours? Why state up front that all of the events occurred a long time ago in a galaxy far from ours?

    Could it be that the two droids were meant to be the true foreground characters? They are witnessing the events in the Skywalker saga then must record them and transmit them. But why...?

    1) The two droids and other droids are in-universe narrators.

    2) They are responsible for witnessing, recording, and transmitting the SW saga to other galaxies.

    Why:

    1) The SW Saga needs in-universe story elements that allow for two or more saga canons.

    2) The story elements are already there. We just need to connect the dots.
