Speaking for all gamers, EVERYONE!
Am I the only one who cried out or had another such audible exclamation when the last one was shouted in the episode, at the most random climatic moment? y/n/q? I just want to watch the episode again for that part.
I was taking notes in another tab and right as i clicked to my notes, I saw the subtitle for Pelleaon. I honestly thought I had misread for the split second before Thrawn said his name
And now I REALLY can't wait to find out more about Thrawn: Alliances...
I wonder what the next character could be.
*arrives sweat dripping*
I heard Jaxxon is being recanonized and came as fast as I could!
Aside from Vergere, which I mentioned earlier in this thread, I strangely want Durge to be recanonized. He was awesome in the Gendy Tartakofskys Clone Wars series
I'm not sure why everyone is so excited over this? Look at Rebels (massive spoilers)
Pellaeon is name dropped just to presumably be killed in Thrawn's defeat by a Jedi kid who can time travel into the past (that's how Thrawn's recanonization worked out). If this is the trend for Legends canonization, maybe it's best to let them be...
sorry double post
Filoni confirms more or less that he survived without saying it outright
Maybe because not everyone is as conservative in what they like as you are.
I shouldn't have asked why everyone was excited because I myself was one of those excited people (over Thrawn, Quinlan).
I just don't want people to be let down the way I've been regarding the above 2 characters.
I've not been conservative. I've read the new canon, read all of Dark Disciple (and how they turned Quinlan into a mass murderer who was reinstated to Jedi Master). I've watched Rebels. I try to go in with an open mind as much as I can, although at some point I want to vote with my dollar (thus I won't be seeing 9 in theaters).
I do feel Thrawn could have been handled better. My idea was something along these lines:
It's not just me who didn't see Zero Hour as an Imperial victory, but the people I watch Rebels with.
I think what would satisfy me for an Imperial victory is something like the Battle of Wolf 359 from Star Trek the Next Generation--something like that... (You can look it up on the Star Trek wiki) The Ghost crew can come to the battle late (like the Enterprise in Star Trek), and find the fleets of Caamas, Raxus Prime, Dentaal, and hundreds of other systems are all completely destroyed...
There would be no Yavin base ready to run to. Just the Ghost, Mon Mothma, and some vague hope of rallying others under the face of massive loss. This is then where Corellia and Alderaan say, no more hiding, we are with you, and they form the alliance seen in the classic trilogy.
Well the way you worded it, sounded like you personally disliked the way Thrawn and Pellaeon were used in canon and didn't think anyone else should be excited for future canonisations based on your own individual preferences.
I mean, basically it almost sounds like you're vaguely ridiculing anyone who could possibly like something that you don't....that's not a mentality I can get behind. Personally I think people can like or dislike whatever they want, I'm not going to act baffled if their opinion runs counter to my own. At least, that's the tone I was getting from your post.
Well that's just not what I was writing at all. I was just expressing a bit of shock, which I explained a bit more in my second post because I realize the original post came across harsher than intended.
I'm holding out a lot of hope for the new canon. I'm going to see Solo, knowing the last Anthology film, Rogue One, was excellent. But 9 isn't getting my dollar vote because I just had too much let-down from 7-8 that I don't feel 9 could ever really repair.
We're 4 years into the new canon, and the growing pains are harder (for me) than I thought. I'm not fond of any of the new books, while by this time in the old canon we had Daley's Han Solo trilogy and Splinter of the Mind's Eye. But I'm hoping for the best, and maybe Favreau, the Game of Thrones people, and other fresh minds can bring their A game.
This constant hyperbole about the "time travel" thing is getting silly. You're acting like Ezra now has the power to travel back and forth through time at will, which hasn't even been hinted at. You don't have to like the concept of the WBW but at least be fair about what the episode showed us about it.
