Tales of the Jedi

PREQUEL JEDI SHOW! Alright!

I really enjoyed Tales of the Jedi. It was so good to see these scenes I always assumed would never be depicted not only being depicted but rendered in gorgeous animation. And although I always appreciated Count Dooku as a character, this show made me all the more interested in him and his relationship with Qui-Gon.

Speaking of Qui-Gon, they got Liam Neeson back again to play him! And his son playing the young version of him! Seeing as how I’ve been a massive Qui-Gon fan since oooh 1999 I was THRILLED to see all that.

This show has also reminded me how much I need to read Master and Apprentice, I still haven’t and I very much should.

Recurring Theme: I Shouldn’t Laugh But I Can’t Help It

LOL. OK, first off, I love Sheev’s observation here. Secondly, I love every Evil Guy Conversation in Star Wars ever. Thirdly, I am dying because “having a robot arm IS TACKY, he should have learned to fight with one hand LIKE A GENTLEMAN” is just so absolutely ridiculously evil AND snobby AND partially just confusing that I am just…dead. I hate this. I love it. I have a very complicated relationship with Star Wars.

I’M ALREADY WEEPING AND I’M NOT EVEN HALFWAY THROUGH THIS. I’M NOT GONNA MAKE IT.

Also:

[…] but it was based directly off of George Lucas’ initial script and, if memory serves, he also more or less gave it his blessing at the time, which means that from where I’m sitting, this book is in a grey area that puts it as close to canon as non-canon gets.

Not only did George approve it, he literally LINE EDITED THAT BOOK. 

Every single line
that was in that book was personally vetted by George Lucas.

The dragon reminds him, every night, that someday he will lose Obi-Wan.  He will lose Padme.  Or they will lose him.

GEORGE LUCAS SAW THAT PARAGRPH AND WENT, “YEP, SOUNDS GOOD.”
