Thanks again for joining us for the review of the main Star Wars title. If you haven’t joined us for one of these before know now that we do talk and ramble on spoilers. Oh and more screencaps! yay!
A few weeks ago Entertainment Weekly published a preview to the upcoming novel Star Wars: Aftermath. For those that aren’t in the know Aftermath is the first of the new canon novels set after the events of Return of the Jedi. We’re excitedly anticipating going back or… is it forward again? To the release of the novel by Del-Rey written by Chuck Wendig.
There are some fans who liked the awesome might of the Imperials in the Star Wars original trilogy even against the rebels and their superman jedi.
A few years ago I came across a short 2 minute Youtube videoof a small rebel fleet being ambushed by a pair of ISD’s and an interdictor cruiser. The animation made me hearken back to the 1980’s and 90’s when anime was still a sub genre of entertainment that was relatively unknown. Before the days when people would know the names of titles like Dragon Ball or Sailor Moon (though DBZ existed earlier in Japan). I was really intrigued by the style and the actual focus of the short unfinished work was not about the courageous rebels escaping the Imperial might. It focused on the faceless Tie Pilots, giving them faces and actual emotions to the situations they were put in that we were so used to seeing from the phoenix wearing rebels. As a fan of Macross (Robotech) and later GundamWing and later versions the style was quite nostalgic.
