6 different endings for the new Star Wars movie.



This is shaping up like a trainwreck.

Rolling Eyes

Anyways, moving onto actually having a worthwhile and intelligent discussion instead of useless groaning and moaning designed to run people off.

I came across this article on Inverse that sets up the fact that Palpatine has been working through ethereal means in readjusting the timeline. I admit, this is an interesting setup with some interesting ramifications for the character. It also helps explain that whole "Dark Rey" thing we had at the end of the little teaser we got too, which easily could be done if Palpatine is playing with the timeline. That said it would also do well to tie in with the Mortis arc and the World Between Worlds where time travel was shown to be possible in the SW universe. Given I think there's some Legends stuff that dabbled with it, but the time travel component where it was brought to the fore front. Often I've seen SW classified as fantasy science fiction instead of science fiction itself because it doesn't have the technobabble/science component. So if this is actually the plot of IX I gotta say it is an interesting attempt to incorporate that finally within the mythology of the series.    

One thing the article does suggest was that basically the altered new Disney canon we've gotten is a byproduct of Palpatine messing with things on the ethereal plain. I admit, it's interesting and plays with a multiverse angle that series like Transformers has done for years. Transformers have numerous continuities and designated them as universal streams for those that are unfamiliar with the concept. Basically Generation One is in a different continuity from the Live Action Bay films basically. I've mentioned this concept with Jurassic Park/World series before with the differences between the films and novels too at points.

So with this it's essentially a way to still have everything be valid and meaningful to the fans and therefore a nice way to appease everybody in a sense. If the Legends continuity had a similar thing with the new EU for SW and goes forward with a multiverse setup I could see it winning a lot of people over again. Then again this is all speculation and interesting to discuss the prospect of and then compare once we get the final product.

If it pans out then I'm really glad it is going to get a chance to resolve the unresolved portions of Solo with Qi'ra and Maul part of the storyline hopefully. Admittedly knowing the outcome of what happens to Maul in Rebels does kind spoil that whatever his plan was it was unsuccessful.

I'm still gonna keep my fingers crossed for a Palpatine movie or even spin-off series detailing how he became a Sith Lord and all that. If it ever happens then hopefully re-canonize elements of the Plagueis novel. I really enjoyed reading that.

Personally I don't think we really need a Palpatine origin story (which we got a lot of in the prequels anyway). IMO we've already had Vader, Boba Fett, and most likely at some point Kylo Ren's origins explained - leave Palpatine mysterious! Razz

Bah! Though I do get where you're coming from here and I kind of agree with it somewhat. The prequels did a good job and showed things, but the reason I am suggesting what I am is because I want to see why Palpatine did these things. I want to see what his motivations in the past with all this was. Was he well intentioned? Was he just born with an insatiable blood lust and desire to kill things? and lastly how and why he became a Sith Lord? What was his reasons? See the prequels don't answer those questions, they don't examine the psychology of the character. So that's why I said I think one spin off story for him is needed.

Honestly I loved the Darth Plagueis novel because it shed more light on his character and basically showed what kind of person he was before becoming what he ultimately became. That's mostly why I'd like to see something with it brought back fully since the whole thing is Legends now. As a character, I find Palpatine interesting and so that's why I wouldn't mind if there was a chance to see under the microscope with him and find out how, what, and why he's motivated and when and why he decided to go down his path.

I treat the Plagueis novel as Palpatine's origin story, personally. Thus far, nothing contradicts it.

George Lucas said he feels betrayed by Disney. He also says that he really didn't like TFA because it wasn't original enough.

I agree with Lucas. TFA really was more of a rehash then JW was.
