Star Wars: This is The Way

Postby Andsed » Sat Nov 07, 2020 4:06 pm


It is a time of turmoil in the year 2020, a pandemic ravages the world forcing people to put a piece of fabric over their mouth or stay at home. An contentious elections grips the United States and its people. And natural disasters, political turmoil, and sheer fucking stupidity hits the wold every month. In these troubled times many take comfort in stories such as the one taking place a long time ago in a galaxy far far away...


Welcome! Star Wars is a franchises many of us hold near and dear to our hearts. The 9 Skywalker saga movies and the spin off movies. Several live action and animated tv shows. Countless books and games. It has something for everyone and a massive diverse fanbase. This thread is the little corner of NS for said fanbase for us to discuss and debate all things Star Wars.

In Star Wars news the second season of the Mandalorian has come out. I think the first couple episodes were pretty good so far and so the first poll of this thread will be asking what you guys think of it so far.

So, what does everybody think about the Dr. Aphra novel that's coming out? Do you think it'll be a novelization of the comic's story ( like the comic adaptions of the Thrawn novel ) or a new Aphra story in a different medium.

She was practically a teenager in the movie and first few seasons of Clone Wars. She matures gradually and becomes a more interesting and sympathetic character. It's called "character development"; something the Sequels never had.

You act like her age excuses her being an agitating little toad. It does not. I just hope and pray this show does what I prayed someone would do way back when I suffered through that movie and season 1. And that's kill the bitch.

Again, being a teenager does not suddenly make me find her any less agitating. She was a suck character. I don't care how much the later seasons tried bending the narrative over to try and make her cool. I hate the little troll, and I hope this season of Mandalorian ends with her 6 feet under.

Today I learned that character development is really just bending the narrative and if you ever have an undesirable trait that you don't like about yourself, you're pretty much just stuck with that trait forever, even after you're realistically rid of it.

I mean seriously. It's pretty obvious that she was supposed to mature from an impetuous little brat with an attitude problem into something more. I mean, if you choose not to see that then by all means feel free to continue spouting bitterness. But I think most of us can realize that heroes aren't just born with heroic traits. They have to learn those things, often the hard way.

She was a teenager, dude. She was supposed to be insufferable. But she grew over the course of show just like everyone else. It's not "bending the narrative" or "trying to make her cool". It's character development; the gradual change in one's behavior and personality. The Ahsoka you knew doesn't exist anymore. She's the obnoxious, naive kid Jedi anymore. You're hating a fictional character because of how they used to portray her even though they don't do it anymore. That's really stupid.

Ahsoka grew as a person, just as most people do. Are you honestly so petty that you'd hate a person for 10 years because they used to be an annoying little shit even though they aren't anymore? Because that's pretty sad if you are.

You have met teenagers right? A lot of them can come off as annoying and immature. Most of them grow out of it and that applies to Ashoka as well. If you have bothered to watch past like the first two seasons you would see that. Ashoka in season 7 and Rebels is a radically different character then she was in season 1.
