Rather specifically to Rey in the sequel trilogy but the reason she is so powerful with so little training is that she's channelling the darkside of the force and healing appears to be unknown to the Jedi. Take the story of Darth Plagius the wise...Baby Yoda heals people how is that a darkside power?
Nope, just a strange hermit getting handsy with an unconscious teen. This is how epic adventures start...Ever since I was a kid, I thought that Obi Wan healed Luke with the Force after scaring off the Tusken Raiders (he places his hand on Luke's forehead in a very deliberate way).
That sounds a bit like the original Battlestar Galactica TV series at times.So a funny line of thought came out of the coffee break conversation at work yesterday. Suppose for a moment that George Lucas took the Star Wars formula from the first movie and applied it to The Empire Strikes Back. So here the rebels win at Hoth and it is Darth Vadar who loses on Bespin and falls down the shaft, escaping once more in his personal custom tie fighter. And suppose each episode basically ran with the same formula where the good guys always win the desperate struggle at the end and Darth Vadar always escapes in his custom tie fighter. Would Star Wars still be the big franchise it is today? I suppose there's an argument that The Force Awakens already takes that approach right?
Yeah, he's either healing him, or diagnosing him, or both. I don't see any other way someone could interpret that.Ever since I was a kid, I thought that Obi Wan healed Luke with the Force after scaring off the Tusken Raiders (he places his hand on Luke's forehead in a very deliberate way).
I still haven’t watched past the first episode. I should probably catch up but I haven’t felt a great stirring in me recently to do so.
That’s probably the best way to do it. It’s essentially structured as 4 movie-length arcs, where they spend two episodes building tension and character and then there’s a big action-filled climax in the third. Watching it week to week can be frustrating, waiting three weeks for the release, which has led to lots of (wrong IMO) complaints that it’s slow and boring. I suspect it won’t feel that way viewed in multi-episode blocks.I was waiting until it was done to watch the whole thing.
I mean, I’ll be honest. I didn’t think the first episode was that great, so I felt no urge to keep watching right away. I’m also not invested in Cassian in any way, shape or form. He was probably my least favorite character in Rogue One.
It sounds like the Rogue One people wanted to make a show about all the talking, political bits in A New Hope and the Prequels.
And I’m fine with this. Anything is better than the insipid stupidity of Rise of Skywalker.
