    If true I know this was done for the most cynical of reasons by Disney but even so YES PLEASE GOD YES :D

    Could Zorri Bliss in TROS be a code name and she's actually Mara?

    I can honestly see this being TROS's equivalent mystery to "Is Ilum the Starkiller planet?" In which they purposefully line up all the dots to spell it out, but never go through the motion to connect them. We'll be given a million clues, but no one will ever confirm anything.

    So to clarify some... apparently this inscription is from a male toilet stall in Galaxy's Edge... what a location for her entering canon... oh my!

    Also that means one has to now check out every single toilet in the damn park in both damn parks even! Male and female for more clues!

    I think your overanalizing this and we need to have a serious discussion on re-canonizing in NuCanon...Stuff like Ziost is techinally canon and Rataka Prime, doesn’t mean Ziost is the Sith capital or the Rakata Empire are.

    I highly doubt that anyone of the higher-ups at Disney cares about what is written on the wall of a toilet stall in one of the parks

    Please tell me where I overanalysed anything? I simply reposted it. I never said which Mara, nor that her backstory is involved. That is your and others implication or hope. I am no wookieepedian and I do not work like that. It could be any Mara Jade in the new universe, or the one we knew but with different job and life. Grown up peaceful with her parents until some idiot exboyfriend of her went to pee on Baatu.

    I just never take to much stalk in these little Easter egg things, I think someone from the storygroup when designing the party put it there for people to find and think it’s fun...Those who get it will get it.

    It’s like the Mandalorian having the weapon from the Holiday Special in The Mandalorian. It’s fun.

    I hope there's a Tommy Tutone joke in one of the stalls.

    I'm instantly reminded of this time years ago, when a random youtube commenter tried to convince me a sequel to Empire at War was coming out soon, and that he knew this because of "subtle hints at Disney theme parks". I rebutted this of course by asking what the hell that even means, and pointing out that new video games tend to have more press and fanfare than people leaving clues in theme parks like the freaking Riddler. Now granted, Star Wars has had small hints at future developments before. Examples include the Geonosian Genocide being hinted at before it was explored more in Rebels, or books showing us Canto Bight before TLJ came out. But if this is really true, and they're going to recanonize Mara Jade in a meaningful way . . . stickers in a bathroom stall is a weird place to announce it.

    More likely this is in the same realm as the Star Wars easter eggs in ET and the ET easter eggs in TPM: something intended as a joke that people over analyze and take way too seriously.

    Yeah, it's weird how sometimes Disney gets talked about as if it's a hive mind, or if Bob Iger is personally overseeing what easter eggs are allowed in bathrooms of a theme park.

    Also, I'm confused by the "cynical reasons" comment. What, as opposed to out of the kindness of their hearts? Star Wars is designed to make money. The Transformers cartoon that people complained Michael Bay ruined the sanctity of was designed as a toy commercial. All media is made for money, it shouldn't matter as long as the quality is unaffected. So hearing "Hey, they might be bringing a fan favorite character back" and responding with "Ugh, those cynical suits" strikes me as a weird reaction.

    Heck Lucasfilm itself before it’s sold was a buisness...George Lucas was both auter creator but also businessman who made a truck load of money off of Star Wars toys and merchandise later in life. Thes are corporations at the end of the day...Lucasfilm, Disney...with one job..make money.

    It depends on how corporations make money. From the gaming world, there's a huge difference between CD Projekt Red and Electronic Arts. The former at least goes through the motions of hearing fans out.

    CD Projekt Red is, in a lot of ways, just as bad/worse than EA. Their crunch culture is just as bad and goes on for way longer, and the goodwill they have after The Witcher 3 means that they can get away with it way easier.

    That's why I said that it dosn't matter "as long as the quality is unaffected", though of course "quality" always varies from person to person.

    Though again I'm pretty certain this is just an easter egg. Mara Jade is probably only tied with Thrawn, Revan, and Kyle Katarn as far as fan favorite Legends characters, and when they brought Thrawn back they sure as hell didn't announce it on a bathroom stall.

    You're right, that is true. And I glossed over that, which I shouldn't have.

    They're turning to the Dark Side. :vader::redsaber::emperor::redsaber:

    The problem with the current generation of gaming is it's next to impossible to buy a high profile, major game and have a clear conscience.

    Maybe it was there in the PS3 era and it wasn't noticed. But the current corporate practices, be it on the development or microtransactions, are malign yet very hard to avoid giving any money to.

    Whoever wrote that graffiti has very good handwriting. I couldn't pull that off, especially not vertically the way this fellow did. Not that I'd ever try, of course.

    makes me wonder, why isn't it a thing that fans add fanmade aurebesh grafitti or inscriptions with prepaired cut out aurebesh to simply spray over? Now I do not want any vandalism in Galaxys Edge at all but did Disney think of that? This topics easter egg seems to be real, but what if this kicks off a trend? Visit Baatu, recanonise your character easily via grafitti. I hope fans are better than that but.. it now worries me.
