    I'm not sure if Tython Awakening really posted the posts above. After all, there is no video of him writing those posts. I demand to see a video of him doing that, and he must speak all the lines he writes to prove that the text lines up with what he is saying. Though come to think of it, I'm not sure if that's enough. A person could always pretend to be him, or worse, someone could actually hack his account to write something with it. Better add some witnesses who can vouch for the posts.

    A direct quote is a direct quote. Unless a person says that the quote in question didn't happen, you can't just assume that it didn't happen. Nor can you redefine what the word hearsay means. Only an infinitisimal amount of human history has been recorded on video, that doesn't somehow mean that everything that hasn't been captured on video is only hearsay. Otherwise you might as well disregard everything you haven't personally witnessed.

    I wrote those posts. I wrote them today, 9/4/2020. I'm bleeding green blood so I need to leave the conversation.

    This would’ve been a somewhat amusing conversation had it not been for the systematic assault on objective truth and credible media that’s occurring in the world today, and the authoritarianism that assault reinforces.

    Oh, please continue. I won't add anything else. You mentioned "authoritarianism and the assault that reinforced" but I do not understand what you mean by that. Please do clarify if you get a chance. I clarified my reasoning. Are you suggesting that by questioning the objectiveness of internet news articles, a person is promoting authoritarianism in some way?

    You didn't question the objectiveness of internet news articles, you questioned truth itself. You didn't criticise rumours or hearsay, you directly stated that an actual interview, quote by quote from both interviewer and interviewee, somehow wasn't proof for that this was actually being stated.

    The Wrap isn't some gossip youtube channel that makes up stuff to garner attention, it is a legitimate journalistic source that has won journalistic prices. It would have taken about five seconds to find that out.

    Your concept of "proof" is just absurd. There is no way to meet that critieria. Especially since her statement did not say that they would actually cover 25,000 years, but that the existing material from the old EU covers 25,000 years. For her following statements to be true, it is enough that they considered creating something in the past, they wouldn't even need to actually develop something. Though if they would, it would obviously still match them having looked at the material and picked up some of it.

    I'm more open to the idea than I used to be. I don't know, I think if that's the movie that Waititi is making, it'll be appropriately weird and spiritual enough. I want it to look and feel more like fantasy with sci-fi tech, like lightsabers, than sci-fi with fantasy trappings.

    Not necessarily. That would only be one possible way to go. People are creative enough to come up with tons of different approaches.

    No. Things can only either get too weird, or too safe. There is no middle ground.

    Retro designing the technology of AGFFA is one of the simpler things they can do to give new films an entirely new aesthetic... and is something I'd personally really like to see. The key (IMHO) is in the consistency of it, if they do 'High Republic', KOTOR, or even earlier... but having lightsbares that resemble a broadsword i.e. much bigger and heavier to wield, is a rather simple, but effective way of changing the aesthetic. The formal hilt, that the High Republic imagery seems to suggest, is another simple way to make the technological regression stand put.

    I've mentioned this elsewhere, but I still think the era with the most cinematic potential is the war between the Jedi and the Mandalorians. There's a conflict that would be populated with new characters, but grounded in some familiar iconography. And most crucially, it's a narrative that could easily garner audience sympathies on both sides.

    Heavier lightsabers, the kind that have to be held with both hands, would also go back to Lucas' original conception of lightsabers as having some real weight to them. I'd definitely be down for something along those lines.

    Listen, if we get the early Jedi as swole as humanly possible, then maybe Zack Snyder can be enticed to direct. Their founder can be named J'ee Z'sus, and also be very ripped.

    Gives the words "Snyder Cut" a whole new meaning, doesn't it.

    This is my thinking. TPM mentions the Sith have been extinct for a millennium, so implying that 1000 years earlier some event ended the Sith and began 1000 years of peace. Though I still suspect that there were plenty of wars in the Star Wars world inside those 1000 years, just not jedi and sith related and all far smaller affairs, planetary wars.

    I like the idea of two handed bulky lightsabers.

    See Jedi with large holsters on their back to carry the blade or on their side.

    Speaking of holsters, some of the Jedi of the high republic era have holsters for their lightsabers (including for regular hilts).

    Doesn’t have to be High Republic era, but I hope to have a film where saber holsters are still in fashion. A cross guard saber in a holster would be quite medieval.

    I’m also ok with a film about the very early Jedi being set pre-lightsaber, instead actual swords are used. Though in Legends ancient Jedi had a way to enhance swords with the force.

    But Disney might not be willing to set films that far back in the past since it would take away one of the most signature icons of a Star Wars film.

    "An elegant weapon for a more civilized age."

    This implies, to me, that the lightsabers of the OT and PT are like late-Renaissance rapiers. Elegant weapons for elegant fighting. Therefore, I find it plausible and realistic to think that earlier iterations might be more similar to medieval swords, or those of antiquity. Rougher. Broader. Etc.

    Whatever period it is, I just hope the ships aren't rehashed star destroyers, x-wings, and TIE fighters with a new coat of pain and nothing else

    If it's post-IX, I'd love to see more kitbash designs ala the Aces from Resistance

    If it's pre-TPM, I'd like to see extremely proto-Prequel era designs, sorta like how the Jedi starfighters eventually ended up turning into TIE fighters as they slowly lost the forward protrusions - compare Obi-Wan's ship in AotC, to what he had in RotS, and then the average twin-ion engine ship

    And if that doesn't convince you, go take a gander at Yoda's starfighter ;P

    Yep, 10,000 years of hyperspace travel and it took them that long to make a lightsabre small enough to be used one-handed?

    I think one handed light saber is as old as hyperspace travel. before that i think they didn't use mutch of lightsabers.

    I'm now picturing two giant lightsabers that are basically the Death Star superlaser (oh hi Darksaber by KJA) chopping planets in half, crewed by legions of Jedi and Sith

    Eventually they decide that it's stupid and work on making it smaller
