  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    Star Wars: Biomes is an 18 minute "virtual vacation", flying over the planets Hoth, Tatooine, Sorgan, Crait, Mustafar, and Ahch-To.

    Sounds like one of those AMSR videos of drone footage of exotic locations like the Maldives except it's for Star Wars geeks.

    I thought it was lovely. I hope they do more of them. I need my beloved Endor seen like this.

    Yeah, the Porgs were obviously the best part of this. I mean... porgs!

    Assuming it's meant to be like those Nat Geo relaxation videos that you can put on as nice/relaxing background visuals/sounds, I would love it to be a lot longer. Still cool though

    This is really neat. I hope they do more of these (preferably with some prequel planets) and extend them to maybe an hour or so. A longer version would be nice to play while going to sleep.

    My only criticism is that it wasn't enough.

    I want 2 hours of that.

    Dagobah, Bespin, Scarif, Coruscant, Naboo, an Asteroid Belt, the shipyards of Corellia, ... keep on going.

    Yup, this is my new favorite thing. Start working on every planet ever mentioned in Star Wars Disney.

    If they do add more, I really hope it gets added onto this one to increase the runtime, rather than uploaded as it's own video.

    Or at least include the ability to loop.

    If this proves successful, I can see more coming. But it’s a very good idea for a SW show, and I can see it expanding into something more down the line. Maybe they can give us the David Attenborough of the SW galaxy presenting and narrating it.

    Biomes was lovely and peaceful. But I've gotta be honest... I kinda was hoping there would be a random moment when the Death Star would obliterate what I was looking at.

    I really just wanted Mark Hamill to give documentary-style narration about the tauntauns in their natural habitat.

    Boba Fett could do a report of the effects of the Sarlacc and survival thereof.

    This was really rad. Ahch-To was the best. It looked like that might have been actual plate photography from an aerial shoot for either TFA or TLJ.

    Now do Kashyyyk and Endor and Naboo and Vandor and Kef Bir and Utapau and Jedha and Scarif and...

    This was excellent. Totally unexpected. Just let’s us focus on the beauty of these fictional worlds.
