u/Wheattoast2019 Nov 29 '22

Plagueis is 200 when he meets Palpatine I think. He was also apprentice for 100, so hopefully the rule of two with Tenebrous and Plagueis are the villains and the Sith group in the show are the antiheroes. That is what I want to see.

u/BlazingImp77151 Nov 29 '22

Yeah, though sadly it was brief. I'd love to see more of his perspective. A Jedi learning the Jedi order and the republic are not what you thought and slowly drifting towards the Darkside sounds like it could be an interesting plot.

Yep obi wan was arguably a bigger hot head than annakin as a youngling/padawan. Obi was constantly getting into fights, he was obstinate/arrogant, and hated working with others. Mace Windu and Qui Gon were suprised with his Saber abilities as well and thought he would be a good candidate for learning form 7 but then qui gon decided to make him his padawan and wanted to tame Obis emotions. Obi wans younger years are some of the best star wars writing.

u/Jake_FromStateFarm27 Nov 30 '22

Can't remember specific volumes but I believe the series of books was called Jedi Apprentice and it follows Obi Wan when he was 13 years old training under Qui Gon. The series I believe was meant to be a lead up to Ep I, but obviously all of legends was mad illegitimate when Disney took over.

I think the Andor series did a great job at showing the empire has nothing but incompetent pure evil mustache twiddling villains in it.

I'd love a show from the Imperial perspective that shows it from an Imperial point of view.

Since yes, the Empire doesn't exactly govern the greatest on poorer worlds when it comes to equality but at the same time when it comes to dictatorial regimes the Empire is extremely tame.

I say this as a 40k player where Star Wars under the Empire looks like a literal paradise by comparison.

Speaking of female Legends characters, I kinda want some version of Daala back, just because I find her character hilarious.

He was my favorite from the prequels; I thought he looked really badass. In one of the tie in video games he had a yellow lightsaber which I also thought was really badass so that solidified him as my favorite council member.

Have they expanded on his character at all in the EU?

The only thing I know about his character was that he was originally named Plonkoon, but when Lucas was looking over the character design, the only note he gave was "Remove the 'n' from his name and make it a space". Good job George, way to contribute.

u/PimpmasterMcGooby Nov 30 '22

I became hugely interested in Ventress as a character after she was disowned by Dooku and became a bit of a gray-area bounty hunter. With formidable lightsaber and force abilities, a vague sense of compassion for others, but the capacity to do some really terrible things.

One of the only re-occuring CW characters that never really got a conclusion and sort of just dissapeared. (I know there is a comic that details her fate, but it would be nice to see it as a mini-series or something.)

Gonk droid

88

u/Ozlin K-2SO Nov 30 '22 Silver

Gonk of Gonk: A Gonk Gonk is about a lone Gonk droid working in the belly of a Jawa sandcrawler, being shoved around to charge whatever needs Gonking. Then the Empire strikes, destroying Gonk's Jawa owners, blowing up the sandcrawler, and leaving Gonk to find a way off Tatooine. In this last appearance of the planet in Star Wars, the series features the first SW hero to only speak one word, with many scenes in near silence with the exception of wind and soft Gonking. With an endless supply of battery charge, can this energetic droid waddle its way off this God forsaken sand pit? In what many fans call "an apt metaphor for the series's excruciating struggle to leave Tatooine behind" we also see just what made Tatooine so hated to its most infamous son: endless sand. Winner of 3 Emmys and 2 Golden Globes. Starring: Bryan Cranston, Zazie Beats, Rachel Dratch, Randall Park, Daniel Day-Lewis as Gonk, and Sir Anthony Hopkins as voice of Gonk.

If they do, they will need to prominently feature his ship, the Moldy Crow. Best name for a ship in the universe.

Lando sleeping his way across the galaxy with an excellent set of capes and the Falcon is almost too much of a good thing.

The Lando system?

u/Andy_Ant Nov 29 '22

Lando's not a system. He's a man. Lando Calrissian. He's a card player, gambler, scoundrel. You'd like him.

Plo Koon hands down. One of the purest Jedi’s, down to the core. One of the greatest lightsaber duelists, master of the force, so much to be told about him. (Still believe he’s alive) at least I hope.

I'd love a movie about Darth Vader hunting down the Jedi after Order 66. Those lightsaber battles would be amazing.

u/XxJuice-BoxX Nov 29 '22

Darth Maul TV series where the first episode is him and his brother before being picked for sith training. the final episode ties into Phantom Menace. And everything inbetween.

Either that or him running the crime syndicate between the clone wars and rebels

Chopper. The character with I believe the highest body count?

u/_Zarrack_ Nov 29 '22

Tarkin, although he just gave the order to destroy Alderaan. Luke, killed the entire crew of the death star. Pretty sure I saw somewhere that R2D2 had a higher personal kill count than Chopper. (A pre bad batch Chopper story could be great though)

At this moment? Mon Mothma. And I get that it's obviously recency bias. But Genevieve O'Reilly is truly a gem.

25

u/superbonks Nov 29 '22

A post-ROTJ series showing her trying to put the New Republic together would be most excellent

19

u/We_The_Raptors Nov 30 '22

That's definitely the timeline to pick with a Mon Mothma show. And the New Republic itself at that point is hugely underdeveloped aswell so there are stories to tell there.

Revan or Starkiller either one would be awesome to watch.

u/killertofu41 Nov 30 '22

Wow, I really thought Revan would have been higher, but I suppose less people remember Kotor than I thought. Although hopefully that remake or remaster or whatever that's in the works will bring about new interest in the Kotor series.

u/MakeThanosGreatAgain Nov 29 '22

Sad I had to go this far down to see Revan.

With Starkiller they better go all out on the cgi, to fully display his capabilities, would likely be the best action movie ever for Star Wars.

Imagine a show about Dexter's diner that's just about him running the diner and hearing rumors and stories about people's adventures in the Star Wars universe. Maybe have some easter eggs in there about the ongoing clone wars.

Some sort of Maul/Palpatine/Plagueis show. The Plagueis novel got me really interested in their dynamic and I’d love to see some sith assassin Maul stuff. Maybe a Palpatine show with that has seasons based around his time with Plagueis, Maul, and then Dooku.
