Pre-Vizla

back to our regularly scheduled program….

@sunsetofdoom and I were discussing just how much of ours souls we would sell to see a live action version of the Pre Vizla/Darth Maul fight for the leadership of Death Watch from the Clone Wars.

Mark Strong is my fancast for Pre Vizla. 

And Maul can either be played by Ray “The DILF” Park or by Ben “Dat Yummy Boi” Schamma.

What would you do for this scene to be played in real life?

illuminati4  asked:

Jango being a peacekeeper? Or at least helping pasafists. When and why did that happen? Even Obi-Wan seemed a little surprised. Also, I can just imagine how Jango is going to react with two of his most important people gone. But is going after Death Watch by himself too much even for him?

They had almost reached the escape pods.

That was what got to Obi-Wan the most, he had almost gotten Boba safe and had it not been for someone checking on the captives, they would have escaped before the ship went on lockdown. But the only thing they found in the cell was a knocked out Deathwatch member sans their armor.

Obi-Wan barely had a faint flash of warning from the returning Force before the sound of a blaster shot out and hit him on the back.

The Jedi went down with Boba giving a low cry of fear.

And that was the last Obi-Wan knew for a while.

“What I mean is that they are GONE.” Jango hissed at Satine’s surprised face, his entire body tense as a string. “What I mean is that the very group I’ve been warning you about has taken them. What I mean to say is that your SISTER has my Boba and Obi-Wan as their captive.” He forced himself calm, rubbing his forehead as he sat down heavily. “Knew I should have stayed out of this entire affair…” He whispered.

When the duchess had first approached him with the fact that ‘renegades’ of the planet wanted to return to prior warrior culture, Jango hadn’t initially wanted to join up. But then he thought about Obi-Wan, his warm and peaceful Jedi who honestly just wanted to curl up on the couch with a flimsi book.

He thought about Boba, raised on their home planet, safe and content. Going to school with children his age, happy. He had been willing to retire for both of those things.

Willing to help a pacifist society of the making of Satine Kryze.

“…Pre Vizla has made his stance quite clear.” He rubbed his face in a gesture mimicking his Jedi lover. “If I don’t swear an oath to stop helping you, he will…gut them as he said. Boba looked fine in the holo, Obi-Wan was unconscious.”

The Duchess moved to him and rested his hands on Jango’s shoulders. “You may think you are alone Jango. But we’ve worked beside each other and Obi-Wan has many friends. If you reach out to them, many will help free him.”

Jango stared at him before sitting up more. “…What do you suggest?”

“Reach out to the mans former padawan. He will help. And I will reach out to the rest.”

A punch hard enough to send him back to unconsciousness woke Obi-Wan up, his head jerking to the left at the force of it.

“You with us again Jedi master?” There was a low growl and Obi-Wan blinked steadily before lifting his head, looking at Vizla.

“Ah good. You’re a clever man, I didn’t think you’d get out of the cell without your precious Force senses.” The man sneered at him, cracking his knuckles. “You even got the little clone with you and almost into the escape pods before you were caught. Very clever, very cunning.” He snorted at Obi-Wan as the Jedi spat blood on the grated floor below him.

Obi-Wan, despite his throbbing head, cast a glance up to see his hands cuffed to a rail above him which was carrying most of his weight. He then glanced to see Boba back in the cell. To his relief the boy only looked scared, not hurt.

“I can’t have that happening again you must understand.” Vizla’s tone was almost conversational. “So I’m going to have to slow you down.” Obi-Wan looked quickly at him, narrowing his eyes.

“…Boba, turn around and cover your ears.” He offered, his tone slightly slurred from the swelling of his lip. The child hesitated. “Now Boba.”

Obi-Wan wanted to close his eyes in relief when the other finally did as told.

“Ah, I see you know what I’m going to do.” The Mando offered before picking up a small metal device with a ball in the end, held suspended between two forks on each side of it.

“I’m a Jedi. I’m not unfamiliar how someone like you would slow down a prisoner they’re angry with.” Obi-Wan offered quietly. It would not be the first time Obi-Wan had been tortured.

Vizla chuckled at that. “People like me…”

“People who think power speaks.” Obi-Wan offered calmly.

The tool made contact with his bared neck and Obi-Wan ruthlessly bit down on his lip, driving his teeth into the already swollen flesh as the electric current ran through his entire body, robbing him of sense and function.

His legs faltered under him when the man removed the tool, watching him with dispassionate eyes. At least he wasn’t the type to derive pleasure from torture, that was something. Obi-Wan knew this was far from over and slowly meet the cold eyes of the man who had his and Boba’s freedom in his grasp.

“…Do your worst.”

“Obi-Wan…Obi-Wan, please open your eyes…dad? Please dad open your eyes.”

Someone was shaking him, distressed and on the verge of tears.

Someone young. Someone who was upset and distressed and it was not in Obi-Wan’s personality to ignore such a person.

Slowly and painfully he managed to force his eyes open to stare at Boba’s distressed and tear covered face.

“Dad!”

“Boba…” Obi-Wan grunted in pain then took as deep a breath as he could. He must have broken a rib because he could feel a sharp pain around his chest that ran down his hip and to his left leg. “…Did he break my leg?”

“Uhu, when you fell unconcious. He took one of the bars to it and just…” Boba mimicked as if he was about to hit a ball with a bat.

“I see…clever of him…and my hands are still cuffed?” Obi-Wan didn’t dare move much.

“I couldn’t get them open.” Boba hiccuped.

“No, shhh, its fine, its fine Boba, I’m sure you did your best. Its not your fault.” Obi-Wan cooed quietly, trying to sooth the child. He shifted and struggled to get up, taking a wheezing breath as he managed to get up from his side to sit on his rear on the floor. “Its alright.” He let Boba bury himself against his chest, little hands clenched into the black fabric of the undersuit he had stolen of the guard.

“Its alright Boba…”

Rogue One Spoilers (Easter Egg References)

1: In the opening Prologue when we see the Erso family home, there’s a pitcher of “Blue Milk” on the counter (Originally seen in Episode 4.

2: When we first see adult Jyn she is being held prisoner on a transport that seems to be a HAVw A6 Juggernaut Tank. This is the heavily armored wheeled talk that was first seen in Revenge of the Sith at the Battle of Kashyyyk.

3: When we see Yavin IV for the first time we get a shot of the ship yard; in the upper corner, one can easily see the ship The Ghost from Star Wars Rebels. Later on in the final battle there is at least two moments where The Ghost can be seen fighting. First when the Rebek fleet arrives, The Ghost is one of the ships to appear and It’s seen flying in front of the flagship bridge.

4: The most obvious is Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker). Saw is the first live action appearance of a character made for the animated series. Introduced in Star Wars The Clone Wars Season 5 Episode 2 during the Onderon arc.

5: When Jyn and Cassian are on Jedha, the walk into Dr. Cornelius Evazan and Ponda Baba. The same two thugs that Luke and Obi Wan encounter in the Mos Eisley Cantina.

6: Rogue One marks the first live action appearance of Kyber Crystals. They have been shown and mentioned throughout both Clone Wars and Rebels. Kyber Crystals are the heart of a lightsaber as well as partial energy sources for Super Weapons including both Death Stars and ancient Sith weapons such as the Temple from Rebels Season 2 Finale.

7: Chirrut Îmwe and Blaze Malbus (Donnie Yen and Jiang Wen respectively) mention that they are (Guardians of the Whills". The Whills date back to before the original film as in George Lucas’ original script, the events of the franchise were told in “Holy Book” that told the histories of the galaxy.

8: When we first see Darth Vader it is at a dark ‘castle’. This Castle is located on Mustafar where Anakin and Obi Wan had their fateful duel. This palace may be a reference to Vader’s residences in Legends were he has a private palace in the Imperial City on Coruscant or Bast Castle which was Vader’s private fortress on the Acid Rain covered planet of Vjun (Source: Wookieepedia: Search “Vader’s personal abode” and “Bast Castle”

9: General Jan Dodonna has a very small cameo role. Dodonna is the commanding officer of Yavin IV and was in command during the battle of the First Death Star. He was originally played by Alex McCrindle and is now played by Game of Thrones actor Ian McElhinney

10: Genevieve O'Reilly returns to the role of Mon Mothma despite all her scenes from Revenge of the Sith being removed from the final film. (All her scenes can be found online)

11: When Bail Organa and Mon Mothma are speaking privately, over an intercom someone calls for “General Syndulla” it is unknown if they are calling for Hera Syndulla from Rebels or her father Cham Syndulla from Clone Wars and Rebels.

12: When the Rebel communication officer is running to speak to Mon Mothma, for about 2 seconds, C1-10P can be see moving off screen. You can also hear him making his signature grunting sounds.

13a: During the Final Battle the film shows several X-Wing and Y-Wing pilots. There are 4 pilots to pay attention for: Both Red and Gold Leader are portrayed by their actors from the original film, Drewe Henley and Angus MacInnes respectively. Both pilots die during the Battle of the First Death Star. The film uses archive footage from the original film as Angus is much older now and Henley died in early 2016.

13b: The third pilot to look out for is the only X-Wing pilot we see shot down from inside the cockpit. This pilot’s call sight is Red-5 which is the call sign that is given to Luke Skywalker during the Battle of the First Death Star.

13c: (Note: I have no proof of this) There is an X-Wing pilot with black hair and a black Mustache. I believe that this is Biggs Darklighter

14: During the Final Battle, the Rebels strategically use a Hammerhead Corvette. This ship was originally introduced in the game: Knights of the Old Republic, which took place several thousand years before the movies. The ships we re-introduced into Canon in Star Wars Rebels Season 2.

15: Krennic’s personal security is made up of Death Tropers which are the best of the best Stormtropers. In appearance they are similar to Shadowtroopers from the game Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast (Legends).

16: When we first see Darth Vader, he is submerged in a bacta tank. This tells us that he is still nursing his wounds from his battle with Obi Wan.

17: Rogue One introduces a new type of TIE fighter: the TIE Striker which is only seen during the final battle. They stand out due to their elongated cockpits and horizontal wings.

18: When Jyn and Cassian are searching for the Death Star plans they looks through several different files. One of these files is called “Black Saber”. This may have a double meaning as it can be referencing the ancient lightsaber called the Dark Saber that belonged to Pre Vizla and Darth Mail in Clone Wars and now owned by Sabine Wren In Rebels, or it can be a reference to the Darksaber Superweapon (Legends) which was built by Durga the Hutt. The weapon was supposed to have the power of the Death Star but built in the shape of a space station sized lightsaber.

This is everything that I noticed so if anyone noticed anything else or if I’m wrong about something please tell me I want to know.

UPDATE:

19: The device that Cassian uses to look through the Imperial Files is identical to devices in George Lucas’ first film THX 1138, continuing the tradition of referencing the film.

20: This is the first time in Star Wars history that an entry to the franchise does not have the famous Wilhelm Scream. (Worst SW Movie Ever)

21: At one point there are two Stormtroopers talking about the old T15 model finally being discontinued. This is a reference to A New Hope when Obi Wan is deactivating the tractor beam, two Stormtroopers are talking about the new T16. Also in The Force Awakens when Rey is sneaking around Starkiller Base, there are two Stormtroopers talking about the new T17 which is apparently not as good as the predecessor. This may be a joke about the Star Wars franchise as a whole: The Prequel Trilogy is finally over (T15), the Original Trilogy is good and impressive (T16) and the Sequel Trilogy, while good doesn’t live up to its predecessor (T17) -Credit to @forcedintostarwars  for pointing this out to me

Things I have just realized are going to destroy me in Tano and Kenobi (some spoilers included)

  • When Obi-Wan gets knighted.
  • When he takes Anakin as his Padawan Leaner
  • When I have to write THE NEW HORRIBLE TERRIBLE NO-GOOD THING
  • Kamino
  • When Ahsoka meets Rex again.
  • When Ahsoka meets Fives again.
  • Shmi meeting Bo-Katan
  • Satine reuniting with Bo-Katan
  • Ahsoka, Obi-Wan, and Shmi punching Pre Vizla in the face.

illuminati4  asked:

So we've seen others afraid to touch Obi-Wan because he bares Jango's mark. What about someone going after Obi-Wan because of it? Maybe add Boba for extra insurance?

He barely dodged the first volley of blasters aimed at him before he could bring his lightsaber up, swirling around to face his attackers.

Obi-Wan’s eyes narrowed as he focused in on them. Mandalorians.

Why were Mandalorians, well-equipped ones, attacking him?!

“Kenobi.” Someone called out and Obi-Wan jerked in acknowledgment. “Ah good, we had the right Jedi then. Jango Fett’s pet.”

So that was why.

Because he belonged to Jango.

“I’m quite sure he refers to me as his lover.” Obi-Wan offered, shifting his stance to defend himself.

“And I’m quite sure he calls this thing his son.” The leader jerked someone forward and Obi-Wan stared at a gagged Boba and his tear stained face. “And that you are fond of this clone.” Boba squirmed under the hard grip holding onto him. “So unless you want something to happen…” The Mando’a placed the muzzle of a blaster against the boys skull.

Obi-Wan jerked at the sight, green eyes focused on Boba’s wide amber ones.

‘He’d never forgive me…’

“Put your weapon down.” Obi-Wan did.

“Good…give him the suppressors.” One of the others stepped towards Obi-Wan and he glared at the still helmet covered people even as he was injected and his hands jerked back. He grit his teeth. This was not going to be easy.

“Boba, its alright.” He offered softly to the boy who whined in return. “Its going to be alright.” He contained his grunt, barely, when his arms were jerked and wrenched to limit his movement even more in their confined state.

Wonderful, his back was going to get one hell of a punishment.

Obi-Wan tried to meditate, eyes closed as Boba stayed close to his side in the shuttle, tried to reach a calm that was eluding him.

He had already tried to figure out a way for them to escape but so far the guard posted outside their cell had kept them both under observation and without his hands or access to the Force, Obi-Wan was…limited.

“…I can safely assume, since you caught both me and Boba, that this has to do with Jango. May I request why we’re being held hostage?” Obi-Wan finally drawled out. Their guard shifted but didn’t respond and Obi-Wan grunted in annoyance.

Boba tucked himself more against Obi-Wan and the Jedi sighed, slowly stretching out his legs so the child could climb into it instead of sitting beside him. He rested his chin on top of the others head and murmured quiet comforts to him.

“A adorable scene.” Someone sneered and Obi-Wan looked up, narrowing his eyes at the bald man in front of him.

“…I would like a name of my captors. And the reason why.”

“A reason enough would be that you are a Jedi. But if you insist, I am Pre Vizla, leader of the Death Watch. You’re here because Duchess Satine and her peace keeping ways are interfering with the way of the true Mandalorians, proud warriors as our ancestors were. And your…lover, has decided to help her.” He sneered at Obi-Wan. “I can only assume that a man like Jango Fett would not have changed his mind to fit a peace keeping society if it was not for you.”

Obi-Wan blinked. Jango was working on keeping the peace on Mandalore? JANGO?

That was baffling. Yet…

Yet Obi-Wan felt a glowing inside his stomach at the thought of Jango doing it for him.

“And so you’d kidnap us…”

“Insurance against him, a vow to stay away from Mando politics.” Vizla sneered at him.

“…Jango is going to take your head of.” Obi-Wan sighed and shifted, trying to get comfortable though his back was aching from the position of his arms.

“Not if we threaten to take you and the clones head.” The two stared at each other and Boba tucked closer to Obi-Wan somehow. “But if he listens well, we might be gentle.” He smirked at them before turning away and nodding to the guard. “Ensure the Jedi is kept on suppressors.”

Obi-Wan closed his eyes, wondering how Jango was going to get them out of this…or perhaps…

He eyed the guard. If they removed their helmet…

It just occurred to me

Hera and Zeb have no reason to know who Darth Maul is
Ezra would have never heard of Maul, as everything with Maul happened before he was born
There’s a /slim/ chance that Kanan /might/’ve heard of him while he was a Padawan, but Maul only ever met a handful of Jedi in his life, and not many Jedi knew he had returned
The person with the most connection to Maul isn’t any of them.

It’s Sabine

Her mother was Death Watch
She worked with Maul to bring down Mandalore
She was /in the room/ when Maul beheaded Pre Vizla
She fought against him in the clusterfuck that was Mandalore

Sabine is the only member of the Ghost crew who would know who Darth Maul is and have a connection to him. That’s gonna be interesting…
