    Just finished entirety of TCW this week

    I just let the order go as they came. You get a few gaps filled in out of sequence but considering you’re watching a tv series shoehorned between the second and third movies of a prequel-trilogy, asynchronism is kinda par for the course.

    Are there any specific events that are really screwed up seeing in series order (not chrono)?

    For the record, blitzed through these scouting for kids at first but obviously enjoyed and now pretty blown away by the breadth and depth of the story/ies. Quality content, but on the kids front, I’m just kinda not sure I’m ready for my 6 year old to go through the trauma. They’re stuck having finished eps 4-6, then 1-2, now a couple seasons into TCW. Not sure yet how I’m going to proceed. I haven’t watched ep 3 in 15 years (?) so not sure if acting is bad enough that it blunts the emotional effect of the events enough for them or not. Will have to rewatch now and see.

    Was ready to disavow the whole universe if they hadn’t saved Rex

    It’s no big deal. You just saw someone betray Padme at the end of season 1 and then sacrifice himself to save her only for him to be introduced as a brand new character that was a hero to the republic midway through season 3 with no mention of his prior sins.

    Have been watching Clone Wars for the first time over the past 2 weeks. Just finished season 5 today. The Ahsoka arc at the end that was basically the plot from The Fugitive was pretty awesome.

    Didn’t filoni say that the Jedi temple guard that comes out during the anakin/Bariss fight turns into the grand inquisitor in Rebels?

    The kid that calls to anakin after they jump out the window, is that supposed kanan as a youngling? I always assumed so but I don’t know if that is actually true or not

    Kenobi D+ show about to start filming this week.

    Almost 16 years after ROTS released means Obi Wan would be older than how he appeared when he dueled Maul on Tattooine in Rebels.

    Somehow I doubt we'll see him at that age in the show.

    I just finished TCW and then rewatch of ROTS (~15 years since last viewing) so really want to see poor old Obi Wan dig out of that pit of despair. I really like Ewan as an actor too so looking at it simplistically rather than “what can they push into that gap?” perspective.

    I also haven’t watched Rebels yet so unaware of any boundaries or complexities in how that might intersect.

    That’s cool and all but it isn’t replacing the tv show they announced of the same or similar name, I hope?

    Why can't they?

    A New Hope has Imperial Stormtroopers riding dewbacks and Sandpeople riding banthas. Tauntauns in ESB. Blurgs in The Mandalorian.

    Where do you get the notion that you can't ride animals in Star Wars?

    Sandpeople riding banthas = indigenous "third world" people using the environment and nature
    Rebels riding Tauntauns = the lack of speeders being able to adapt to the cold (Luke didn't hop on a tauntaun when the Empire showed up)
    Blurgs in the Mandalorian = same as banthas

    Imperials riding dewbacks I can't give you a canon reason for. Probably because there was no canon when Lucas shot the scene. It was just an excuse to throw in an alien looking animal in his weird movie.

    The shot I was alluding to makes it look like the Jedi are "medieval" knights, charging into battle on horseback like something out T.H. White. It comes right after the line "the golden age of the Jedi" and then shows a literal (laser)sword-wielding cavalry charging against a line of other horse-mounted warriors.

    I dunno. I just sits wrong with me. It's too traditional fantasy in a series that is supposed to be "space" fantasy, where the classical medieval fantasy elements are replaced with sci-fi counterparts. Fighting on horseback has already been done in Star Wars, in the form of X-Wing dogfighting with TIE Fighters.

    But now I'm ranting. Sorry. Carry on
