    This Stormtrooper one is very well done. The transitions from one scene to the next are excellent, I especially like the Endor stormtrooper transition into the Deathtrooper by using a spash of sea over the "camera" location, very creative. I also like how it is all moving to the right, increasing the sense of one seamless take from the troopers exiting the transport, to planting their flag.

    Man, I really really wish these were longer than 30 seconds. The animation is just so crisp and dynamic! I want more!

    That one is a bit too humiliating to Luke for my liking, but I will let it pass this time as it does a good job showing his impressive improvement once he is feeling the force.

    That’s one of the best ones. The animation of force usage there is excellent. And there’s no humiliation. The training remote beats him the first time he uses a lightsaber (and consciously tries to use the force), which is natural, and then he beats it handily after a very cool force session.

    And exactly consistent with all the others. Amped up versions of the movie scenes. With great animation.

    Well there is some. In the movie we see Luke intercept 3 shots from the remote before the remote shoots him in the arse once. 3 out of 4 isn't that bad. This animation though skips the first part to focus on exaggerating the one blast he missed in the movie, turning it into multiple hits, adding a ridiculous squeal when he got arse shotted, and most humiliating, having the droid shoot him in the arse a second time while he is laid out on the floor. We then get the angry, humiliated expression on Luke's face. The animation recovers with the cool exaggeration of a positive to equal the negative exaggeration. So it is ok by me, just.

    As you confirm, with your own words, this is the series being consistent. His failure to stop the remote is exaggerated, and his success in stopping the remote is exaggerated. Why are you unwilling to accept exaggeration of what you see as negative elements, while being really supportive of positive exaggerations?

    In any event, it’s not “negative” to fail while training. That’s why it’s training. Because Luke doesn’t know a whole lot about the force yet, and is just getting started. So he trains...

    I guess because emphasising and creating fun out of someone's failures, weaknesses or misfortune is seen as an unkind thing to do, disrespectful.

    Dude that's, like, 90% of children's entertainment. Kids love slapstick.

    Because unlike many adults, kids see the humor in failing. For kids, failing is just trying.

    Yeah, but it seems different to me seeing as it is a retelling of an original scene.
    Kids often don't realise how hurtful laughing at someone can be also.

    True. Children can be harsh in that way. But though amusing, the scene didn’t seem to be mocking Luke. The style is simply consistent. It’s Star Wars amped to 11.

    That's what happened to all the extra TIE's we never see in the film.

    Another great one....I Like how they fill in the gabs a little bit .
    Somehow the animation has something real fresh and dynamic to it.. Really love this stuff.

    This one reminds me of the Adywan revisted death star battle. I love the increased TIE count.

    This just keeps getting better and better. We are now, not including the trailer at 17 Star Wars Galaxy Of Adventures episodes and reached the 20 minute 54 second count. Now bad. Just imagine how much more they have awaiting to come out. That's close to 21 minutes of bright colored, exciting, action oriented animation. I knew these were good but boy the last 6 have been awesome. I'm hoping that they do enough to make it to over an hour of this type of animation.

    I really hope they give us more than a minute of Anakin vs Obi-Wan, Kenobi vs Grievous, Jinn and Kenobi vs Maul, or Yoda vs Palpatine

    Why? That's the length of these things. And we really don't need to see Kenobi vs. Grievous again...

    Obi-wan is due a video though, of the original trilogy main characters only him and Lando haven't had one focusing on them yet.
