I got triggered at 7m. 17s.!!! Don't ever call Kylo Ren a Sith! He would never, in any era, be worthy of even becoming an acolyte, let alone a Sith. He's a snowflake that dabbles a little in the force. That's it!

Jedi rarely operated in the outer rim, while Mandalorians were mercenries there (not accepted in inner republic). And our Mando walks in mercenery bounty hunter circles, so more people would would recognize him as Mandalorain since they often see mercenaries.

15:50 they actually got this wrong. Anakin’s body DID disappear, it happened after the cut to the next scene in the movie, but in the novelization of the film, Luke states that his body did disappear after he died. It just disappeared after the scene cut in the movie.

Obi-Wan did train to become a force ghost. At the end of Revenge of the Sith, Yoda reveals to him that Qui-Gon contacted him and taught him the trick and that in Tatooine, Obi-Wan was to train to achieve that.

21:35 Could be it helped Snoke with the Dark Side. It was a theory that Vader's armor was painful. The Emperor did that to him and most likely to Snoke as well to fuel their being with pain, increasing their power with the Darks Side.

The mental gymnastics used to justify the craziness of the sequels is admirable. In the future, you should just say all rules about the force and the universe of Star Wars are completely thrown out the window in the sequels and any attempt to be consistent with the past movies.

The Mandalorian definitely takes place well after the Battle of Jakku, during the 2nd season one of the characters makes reference to a series of events that culminate at Jakku and he does so as though it happened quite a while ago.

I mean people might be subject to propaganda, but the jedi were leading the army in a massive war within the lifetime of most adults during the mandolorian. Even if they thought they were traitors the memories of like news reals, most people would have seen. Not knowing who Yoda was in the 20s ABY, is like not knowing who Patton was in the 70s.

Why did Ben die when using the force heal power to save Rey, but Rey can force heal anybody or even any creature without suffering any negative consequences at all?!
Diego Meringer
Diego Meringer 3 måneder siden
Most likely because he was closer to death than anything else, there was lots of smaller healing in the clone wars. And it’s not even close to the degeneracy in legends, as there was this guy who could resurrect anyone with no cost to him, and his nemesis learned this power and could resurrect himself when he was already dead

The more I see them try to answer simple questions about contradictions the more I realize the Star Wars universe was not planned out ahead of time and the movies don’t care about established cannon. In 10-20s they will retcon the whole franchise again.

In regards to the Jedi Pyre, I think it just depends on the Jedi and who is in attendence. In Queens Peril it is stated clearly that Padmé, her Handmaidens, Obi, and Anakin stayed until Qui-Gon became ash as a sign of respect and thanks for everything he did for them.

There’s so many things in the Star Wars canon that don’t make sense though. Why’d Obi Wan age so fast on Tattooine? Why’d Molly post a crying gif to antagonise and bully another Star Wars NOsectionsr? How did Palpatine survive falling down the energy shaft? There’s SO many questions!

7:13 Yeah, like he said, Snoke and Kylo were not Sith, they were just users of the dark side of the force. You don't have to be both. Palpatine basically used Snoke as a tool to not get his own hands dirty, both in terms of gaining power back in the galaxy (first order) and having Snoke get killed by Kylo, sidestepping the tradition of having an apprentice kill his master, and then taking Kylo on as a direct apprentice in episode 9. Palpatine never wanted to end his reign of power.
JohannTheCreator 3 måneder siden
6:33 I believe that took place before the events of Episode 3, so before the Jedi were actually hunted down and called traitors; they were still part of the Republic. I think the sisters didn't trust the Jedi because all their experiences they had with them made them seem like elitists who didn't care about the common people, to avoid spoiling too much.

Re why people in the galaxy all seem to know about Mando culture, I see Mandalorians as a diaspora minority, who are more or less familiar to people in general, but what the public knows of them is mostly stereotypes, that are also influenced by the specific branches of their creed present in a given region. "Oh, they don't take their helmets off, it is known." Compare to ethnic stereotypes in our world.

One thing I never see mentioned is that Ben fights Vader to a standstill until he knows Luke is watching. Luke's first encounter with Vader is seeing him kill Ben. Ben set that moment up, foreshadowing it with the comment about becoming more powerful than Vader could possibly imagine. The ultimate troll moment in Star Wars goes to old Ben.

15:55 in the theatrical release of rotj, i’m pretty sure ani wasn’t a force ghost, and was later put in because it gave a sense of a change in character, as if he’s been brought back to the light, and i’m pretty sure when in exile, ben (obi wan) trained for this skill, as he reached another level with the force and unlocked his peace of mind

This is about Palpatine trying to hide the existence of Jedi. He didn’t really do a good job of hiding their existence. While many people didn’t know about them, most people did. However, the idea of the force faded out. Nobody really doubted the force when the Jedi were prevalent. In episode 4, however, many people didn’t believe it existed or never even heard about it at all.
