2020 is basically a carnival haunted house full of escalating horror. Sometimes what seemed angry even last year has become strangely reassuring today. Remember how people used to complain war of stars the whole time? Yes, the films were often frustrating and the discourse became tiresome and at times toxic, but at least it wasn’t … This. Recently, however, we got a new hit of nostalgia from 2019 when everyone suddenly got mad war of stars again, which frankly was like a calming balm of normality at the time.
In an interview with Josh Gad, Daisy confided to Ridley that no one really knew what the hell was going on with Rey’s legacy. Not only was she not always a palpatine, but also not always a palpatine during the making of The Rise of Skywalker. Previously, the writers apparently toyed with the idea of relating them to Obi-Wan Kenobi ̵
It is certainly frustrating to hear that a key secret of the latest trilogy (one that was probably solved in the second film) has been treated as well as Trump University, Trump Steaks or America. But maybe we should accept that half-hearted family connections are just as fundamental war of stars as monsters and space battles. As is well known, George Lucas made genetic connections between characters over and over again in the creation of the original trilogy. In early drafts of The Empire Strikes Back, the ghost of Luke’s father will come by and Luke’s Sister wasn’t Leia but a Rando named “Nellith”.
Lucas apparently even dropped a twist that Obi-Wan Kenobi was involved in. Either because it was in the original script or because they put cocaine in their drinking water in Hollywood, the writer in the 1980s Return of the Jedi The novella included a scene in which Obi-Wan reveals that Luke’s uncle was Owen his brother.
Also Boba Fett and Darth Vader were almost brothers, because that war of stars The universe is somehow more inbreeding than the desolate German village dark. Any example of sloppiness behind the scenes can be described as a loving homage.
