Sketches of a ‘what if Ahsoka went into hiding on Alderaan as a refugee during the Jedi purges, and meets Leia and secretly trains her as a Jedi?’ Star Wars AU idea by greenkaorichan. It’s been stuck in my head for days because it’s such an awesome idea, WE COULD HAVE HAD IT ALLLL
I was meaning to draw an epic dramatic Ahsoka/Leia meets Obi-Wan/Luke mentor-and-student team up for the last panel, but then I was like “you know, they would all have one thing in common… and form a 'Darth Vader ruined our lives’ support club” XD Vader could be an honorary member of this club too
1) i wanna write bitter, unrequited love and angst.
2) lol lets get all my characters drunk and make them work together to set up a karaoke machine, then have them sing drunken variations of ‘pour some sugar on me’ and ‘99 luftballoons’ while sloshing differing alcoholic beverages on each other!
“Serkis describes a cruel master, a 9-foot-tall alien humanoid who disparages and dominates his two lieutenants: Kylo Ren (played by Adam Driver) and General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson.) He’s a predator who identifies weakness and exploits it, drawing the young and promising to his side with promises of power, then using and discarding his protégés when they are no longer of use.”

The cast and director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi give us the lowdown on new creatures, new cast members and who might be going to the dark side.

Most film franchises like to play
their cards close to their chests,
but Star Wars is in another
league. It’s understandable that
the franchise known for pulling off one of the
greatest shock twists in movie history wants to
keep plotlines on the down low, but by goodness
it makes it hard to write about them.
So here’s what we know about Star Wars: The Last
Jedi – Rey goes to Luke Skywalker
to seek Jedi training while Finn, Poe Dameron and General Leia’s
Resistance continues to fight against
the First Order, led by Kylo Ren,
General Hux, Captain Phasma and the mysterious Supreme Leader
Snoke. So, basically, exactly where The Force Awakens left off.
There are hints and suggestions at where the story
may go. We know that Finn and new character Rose end up at a giant casino, and we know that Benicio
del Toro and Laura Dern have joined the cast.
But other than that, everything is tightly under
wraps. And, as far as del Toro is concerned,
that’s exactly how it should be: “The fans want
that wrapping paper around that Christmas gift,”
he says. “Don’t give it to them without the paper.
They don’t want to see it when they walk in the
room. They don’t want to know.”
For Kelly Marie Tran, a newcomer to both
Star Wars and movies in general, who plays
Rose, her casting in The Last Jedi came with
mind-boggling levels of secrecy. She wasn’t
even allowed to tell her family that she’d got the
part, or even that she was filming in London, in case they put two and two together. “I told
everyone… I was doing a small indie movie in
Canada. I would send pictures of Toronto that I got from Google to my friends saying ‘this is where I am!’. It was a weird time.”
was similarly tight on set. “Everyone is in these
tinted-window cars, transported from one part of the set to another,” Tran explains. “And you’re
wearing these like black robes. They’re like
secrecy robes, so no one can tell who you are.
It’s insane the amount of security there is.”
So I just wanted to say as an observer, that like reylo’s and anti’s would make an interesting psychological case study of how two groups can look at the exact same words, images and so on, and come away with the exact opposite conclusions. Like I think it’s clear what side I’m on XD but I just think it’s funny. Since the EW stuff came out I’ve seen breakdowns of the exact same sentences and both sides clapping and declaring a win. It’s just funny how perspective shapes your take away from something.
If i was smarter there’s probably a way to tie the force to that idea. Light and Dark and how they feed on themselves. We see what we want to see sort of thing. But I am not that smart.
In The Last Jedi, Rey teams up with
Luke Skywalker – but he’s not the man we
remember. And that’s not the only shock.
Total Film talks to the key players about the Star Wars movie that changes everything.
“Luke Skywalker has vanished,”
announced the opening crawl to Star
Wars: The Force Awakens. And vanished
he remained, for pretty much the entire
running time of the seventh instalment
in the space saga.
Sure, his presence
hung heavily over that film, the first Star
Wars movie in a decade, and the first to follow on from the events of 1983’s
Return Of The Jedi. Luke ended that
particular film a pretty well-balanced
Jedi Knight, having helped destroy the
evil Empire while resolving some of his daddy issues with Darth Vader. He
was last spotted at a victory celebration
on Endor, watched over by the Force
ghosts of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and
Vader/Anakin. What could go wrong?
Cut to 30 years later and the events
of The Force Awakens, and Luke is
nowhere to be seen – save for a brief flashback – until the final moment
when he’s handed his trusty lightsaber by Rey (Daisy Ridley), a young scavenger from the desert planet Jakku who has recently
discovered Force sensitivities of her own. The long hair and grey
beard can’t disguise the tormented
scowl of the galaxy’s original golden
This is not the Luke we remember.
As Mark Hamill himself puts it to
TF, “It’s shocking to hear Luke say, ‘I know only one truth: it’s time for the
Jedi to end’ – the last time we saw him,
he was the most optimistic character.
He was sort of at the peak of his
powers, and you would imagine that
he’d then become a Jedi master and
train other people and so forth. What
has happened to him that has so
traumatised him into where he is now?”
That is the question that drives The Last Jedi, aka Episode VIII. In 2015,
J.J. Abrams’ The Force Awakens was a
critical and commercial smash, putting
Star Wars back on top (after the plastic
prequels squandered fan goodwill),
scoring more than $2bn at the global
box office and an overwhelmingly
standalone ‘Story’ Rogue One was also a
hit to the tune of $1bn, proving that the
world was ready for adventures outside the core episodic structure. But now
we’re back to the narrative throughline
of Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn, Poe… and of
course, Leia and Luke. (The journey of the former, who we’ve seen go from orphan to princess to spy to
senator to general of the Resistance
during the franchise, is apparently
unaltered in The Last Jedi, despite
Carrie Fisher’s death meaning this will be her last Star Wars movie.)
“Watching the film, there’s going
to be a very emotional reaction to
what she does in this movie,” says TLJ
director Rian Johnson. The indie auteur behind Brick, The Brothers Bloom and
Looper, he’s something of a Padawan
when it comes to blockbuster
filmmaking on this scale.
the only person besides George Lucas
to have a solo writer-director credit on
a Star Wars movie, and it seems he used
that autonomy to make some pretty
bold choices, even in a series celebrated
for its twists.
