    Book of Boba December then the mandalorian a few months after that. Obi Wan shouldn't be to far after that.

    Filoni and Favreau have got to be going 24/7 with all this though. 2022 is gonna be a whole lot of star wars.

    Obi Wan is definitely the thing I’m most looking forward to now.

    Ridiculous. Gina Carano is a wonderful person, she just happens to be an unabashed conservative and that's a career killer these days.

    The only reason Chris Pratt still has a career is because he's a quiet conservative.

    Being Conservative does not mean that you compare being a Republican in the current political divide to being Jewish in Nazi Germany.

    Like sure the other stuff you can say "oh she was just expressing Conservative ideals." and sure they decreased her public visibility because of that.

    But there's a reason she was only fired today and not for the previous stuff.

    Her point was about the government making you hate people for different beliefs. The more time goes on the more conservatives are demonized and classified as extemists as a whole.

    They've been looking for a reason to fire her for months, they always would have found something.

    Oh, but comparing Trump to Hitler for 4 years totally made sense and was completely rational.

    Are we going to act like the mainstream media hasn't been referring to a group of 3 or more conservative people together as Nazis for the last 4 years? The word Nazi gets thrown around so much it loses all meaning. Ben Shapiro gets messages calling him a Nazi for fucks sake.

    I'm surprised dictionary.com hasn't went and changed the definition of Nazi since I know how much they love to change definitions after the fact.

    Gina was just asking people to have some self reflection, and realize that the mainstream media wants to divide us because of our differing political views.

    Comparing yourself to the persecuted is going to be offensive to many more people than how offensive it is to the one person (and their family) to be compared to the persecutor.

    Although that said I'm sure I remember people did get put under fire for comparing some of Trump's policies to Hitler for similar reasons that it diminished what people actually went through.

    Nazi might have lost some of its oomph with overuse. But she referred to the Holocaust part. That has not lost any meaning.

    This is the media saying how dare you compare yourselves to Jews, haven't we told you a million times by now you're the Nazis?

    She never mentioned the Holocaust, she was referring to what led to it. The demonization of people reinforced by the government.

    She should have found a different comparison point. I actually feel quite a bit of sympathy for her because I do think that she just isn’t very bright and has been unfairly persecuted over the way she expresses some of her feelings, but she badly needed an PA to take her social media off her, this has been so clearly coming.

    I disagree with her beliefs but having those beliefs shouldn't get anyone fired. it's when you step onto a public pedestal with a giant microphone and say these things in an offensive way to the whole world that it becomes a problem. and that's the power social media has given celebrities, and she was not wise enough to not step up and blast out her questionable opinions. so I'm fine with her being fired even if part of me wishes for the days when celebrities of her status really didn't have a pedestal to step to so they never would have been fired because they never would have made the effort to go out and do a national campaign with their political opinions. maybe at worst they would have said something questionable in an interview but it wouldn't have made a big enough impact for people to care.

    I thought the idea of her character getting a spin off was lame anyway, so no big loss for me in terms of the Star Wars universe.

    I finished watching Clone Wars the other day and starting my way through Rebels. Good stuff. Wished I had watched sooner. I am excited about Boba Fett and Obi Wan and of course new Mando when all that comes out.

    Rebels starts a bit slower, takes a bit more getting used to, but I think it was great!

    I have seen a few random episodes in the past since my son has watched it. I always enjoyed it when I watched something with him but I never got around to like sitting down and trying to watch it all. Enjoying watching and catching up on this content on Disney +

    I love it but I have to admit I was not impressed the first few episodes but man it got really really good and I love it. Just started off a little slow in my view. I know a lot of people loved it from the start though.

    I think I'm one of those people. Only watched the one episode so far, but the pacing, the music, the vibe, the snippets of lore, really pulled me in.

    Definitely got back and watch Clone Wars. Good writing and I love how it really fleshes out Anakin even more than what you see in the movies.

    Just be aware that the first few seasons of clone wars are not chronological. That threw me for a loop at times. There is a list out that puts the episodes in order but I just plowed through.

    Yes they are in the order they came out and there are various reasons why they were not put out in order (production, going back and adding backstory episodes, etc.). I think around season 4 they are pretty much in chronological order.

    Also don't forget to watch the animated Clone Wars movie. I didn't watch that until like part of the way through the second season and honestly it is good to watch before you start the series.

    I cannot recommend Clone Wars and Rebels enough. Agree with MTR about the timeline. The movie isn't great, but is really what the first three episodes of the show were suppose to be.

    Started Light of the Jedi, it is pretty good so far. They are doing a good job fleshing out the galaxy.

    Very insulting of you to describe her narcissistic spiteful hyberbole as conservative. You're just yet another millennial trying to smear conservative values, at least you're more subtle about it than the people calling them nazis. Nice try.

    While I said my bit about about this the US Politics thread, let’s not pretend sharing the idea that the Holocaust and the Jewish plight is comparable to being a conservative in the US is a normal Republican viewpoint.

    The worst possible example and comparison that could’ve been used was used, and she lost her job due to it. There were much better examples that would’ve made sense and were much less inflammatory. Does that make her more or less of a conservative if she chose a different example? No. Simply means she in this case chose the worst possible one, and she caught a shitstorm for it in this political and social climate, which is hard to argue that she didn’t deserve. End of.

    Neither of which are any better. I’d fully support an argument that they should be released as well. They weren’t. Yes it’s hypocritical.

No. Simply means she in this case chose the worst possible one, and she caught a shitstorm for it in this political and social climate, which is hard to argue that she didn’t deserve. End of.
    Her point was about the lead up to the Holocaust when the government is making you hate your neighbor and telling you they're evil like the 4 years Trump was president, and is still happening. Now it seems like Hitler is getting played out to them and they would rather compare Trump supporters to the genocide in Rwanda.

    There was also the controversy because she put the pronouns beep/bop/boop in her Twitter profile after being harassed constantly on Twitter about adding pronouns. People already wanted her to lose her job for that.

    People also just looked at her likes and who she was following and wanted her to lose her job for following Ben Shapiro and liking posts from Babylon bee.

    Basically, liberals in the media and liberal celebrities have been making hyperbolic comparisons to Nazi Germany for 4 years but nothing happens to them because they're liberals.

    Jesus Christ, sometimes I wonder why I support the Republican party when the most vocal in different media has such little sense.....


    DO NOT USE THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND THEIR PLIGHT IN THE HOLOCAUST (during, before and after) AND EXPECT IT TO WORK OUT WELL FOR YOU!!!

    I don’t care about the things people on the other side may say. That doesn’t make what you say any goddamn better. Yes it’s hypocritical. Yes it’s frustrating. Sometimes you have to do things and accept that shit just won’t be fair.

    Mind boggling that we can’t just get on with our lives in a normal, respectful way, and both sides (BOTH) have to always to “WELL, BUT THIS PERSON SAID OR DID THIS WHY ISNT IT FAIR?”

    It isn’t fair. Get the fuck over it. Then figure out how to work within it to do or be something positive.

    Yeah like in the lead up to the Holocaust, the german government was telling people to hate Hitler. Brilliant analogy.

    Do you actually wish you were a conservative and fail badly at it, or do you honestly just want to stir shit?

    That's not what I was saying.
    I am a conservative. You must be confusing me with a RINO.

    Anyway, on topic for Gina Carano discussion at least, she's making a movie and starring in it for Daily Wire Films. I haven't watched their first movie Run Hide Fight but it sounds like it was pretty good.

    Bari Weiss interview with Gina Carano, interesting read. I believe the Babylon Bee podcast will be out tomorrow.

    So your thoughts on pascal's post and a Disney executive calling for Maga kids to be thrown in the woodchipper? Should we just shut the mandalorian down at this point?

    comparing a bunch of nationalistic cult losers throughout history is way more apt than trying to draw parallels between being a certain kind of conservative in public and how germans treated jews leading up to the fucking holocaust.

    also didnt you complain the political stuff was clogging up the thread?

    I mean, really you need to separate these into two debates. Firstly, why was there a different reaction from the general public to what Gina Carano said compared to what Pedro Pascal said? Then secondly, why was the reaction from Disney different. You are merging the two debates together, we can debate that first one if you want, but the answer to the second one is pretty straight forward.

    Disney have decided that what Pedro Pascal said does not negatively impact Disney's brand, it is in line with what they believe that their core fanbase is happy with hearing one of their cast members say. Or if it isn't, they weighed up that Pedro Pascal was a big enough star that they were happy to let this one go. They made the opposite decision with Gina Carano. Maybe this was due to repeated warnings, maybe it was because of her lower celebrity status, maybe because they didn't like the negative publicity they were being associated with because of this.

    Ultimately, they are a major company who will undoubtedly have their own guidelines around this type of thing. They only need to address why they made those decisions differently if Carano takes them to court for wrongful dismissal, or if fans revolt to it so much that it compromises their share price. Neither of those seem to be happening.

    I dont think they released the exact numbers but they did lose a lot of subscribers after it became public knowledge that she was let go. Enough that exec's were actually startled by it.

    I dont even think a big movement to hire her back would bring her back at this point. shes already moved on and seems ready to do her own thing.

    I don't think what you said is true. I don't know if/how they release subscriber counts? Do they do it monthly?

    Why are Republicans so overdramatic?

    They're always trying to latch on to the plight of minorities, and they REALLLLLY love comparing themselves to Jews in Nazi Germany.

    I'm not a fan of when people try to claim someone is like Hitler, whether that's Obama, Trump, or even your boss at Wendy's. It's even worse when they try to say that anything they're experiencing-especially in present times-is anything remotely close to what our Jewish brothers and sisters suffered. 6 million+. That was just the Jews.

    These soft ass ninjas....once again it's just a bunch of ignorant, overdramatic idiots. I'm a fan of Gina Carano's MMA career, I'm a fan of her tv/movie work. Do I find it very very weird that Ben Shapiro took zero issue with her feeling this way? Very much so, puts everything he represents in question because he spent a good 4-5 years talking about how he was the most attacked Jew on Twitter at one point.

    Typical from entitled people. This isn't really a political party issue this an entitlement issue. Not a white privilege issue, just pure entitlement. Gina Carano, for all she's worked for, still started out better than most which is why she has this ignorant opinion. Look where it got her. On to the next.

    So happy to see Gina Carano get the boot. Transphobia has no place in society. Enjoy your fringe right wing career Gina.

    If you knew anything about the story you would understand it had absolutely nothing to do from transphobia.

    That was the issue originally. Then she started bringing up the Holocaust which is always a dumb idea.

    doesn't mean it wasn't transphobic. mocking the idea of displaying your pronouns as an attempt to mock the people harassing her about not having her's displayed are conflicting narratives. she's just not bright enough to articulate arguments any better and does reactionary shit.

    I think it certainly is. Will take a bit for you to get used to the animation style.

    Give the characters a chance though.

    I preferred Rebels to Clone Wars. It’s an excellent show. It has some of my favourite moments since the original trilogy. I really want there to be a follow-up some day.

    I also loved Rebels. Just as much as Clone Wars overall I'd say. You have to get used to the different and less familiar characters, but otherwise it's all gravy.

    It was announced today that Genndy Tartakovsky's “Star Wars: Clone Wars” is coming to Disney+ in April. Looking forward to this as I’ve never seen the full series, but it has that awesome scene with Mace Windu taking on an entire droid army by himself and the duel between Anakin and Ventress in the rain. And Grievous is like the Terminator, evoking real fear amongst the Jedi. Loved how the show led directly into the opening of Revenge of the Sith.

    Was one of the works that was put into the “Legends” category I see. I’m never gonna complain about Star Wars material though. I’ll be sure to check it out.

    I haven't been able to get into anything animated with Star Wars because the animation looks dumb. Clone Wars, I hear nothing but good things but I try to watch it and Star Wars with that quasi-Toy Story like animation just doesn't work for me. I feel like I'm watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

    Bad Batch is out I think. Already getting stellar reviews. I just don't know if I want to wait and binge all at once or go episode by episode. I already have a feeling this series is going to be off the charts.

    This show has a Disney Infinity vibe to it which is why I didn't really get into Clone Wars. I'm a little anal about my animation. I will definitely check it out though.

    First episode of the bad batch is 75 minutes! That's pretty much 3.5 episodes and takes place right at the order 66 beginning. Now I am pumped.

    Awesome start to the series. Dee Bradley Baker deserves all of the awards for essentially acting against himself for an hour.

    16 episodes for Bad Batch. That's gonna be 4 months of Star Wars. No confirmation if it's just a one series thing or if there will be multiple seasons. Highly possible of its successful we could see them run into the mandalorian time frame.

    Good lord people are complaining that the bad batch and omega have been white washed and that there is no logical explanation for genetically altered clones not to be more representative of the darker skin color of Jango.

    It does seem like an odd complaint that in a show where they're all clones that they might want some way to easily distinguish all of them.

    Disney is pushing Gina to win best supporting actress for her work in the mandalorian

    If she would somehow win then she is definitely coming back.

    Putting her up for consideration and pushing for her to win are two separate things. The image below is everyone they are submitting for Emmy consideration:



    Sasha Banks, Frog Lady, the voice of the Robot from the IT Crowd, ten seconds of John Leguizamo and Luke Skywalker are also on this list. They put everyone who is on the show on their Emmy consideration list, which is a common move for television shows. This show just has a bunch more guest spots than a regular show.

    Pivoting to Bad Batch, another fun episode. Tech is going to be my favorite member. I thought Wrecker was going to run away with it, but Tech is so damn funny.

    I get that it is a common move but this is definitely an uncommon situation. Disney spent a lot of money to scrub her name off a lot of things including pulling already filmed TV episodes and action figures by the tens of thousands if not more and having them destroyed. So it stands to reason it seems bizarre for them to go to all that work to separate themselves from her to reverse course for something she is going to be a very long shot of being nominated for...let alone winning.

    It could be something in Carano's contract that she be submitted.

    I don't think anyone needs to worry about her winning an award for acting.

    I agree with ya. She's probably not even on the radar but I figured her contract would be null and void due to being fired so I doubt Disney would have to uphold any clauses. Especially one like that.
