Star Wars Celebration: 40th Anniversary Panel Was MAGIC!

  • Published on Apr 14, 2017
  • Day 1 of Star Wars Celebration was a barrage of The Force, fans, and the feels. A panel of actors who have touched our hearts throughout our lives, as well as a tear jerking tribute to Carrie Fisher, and a few surprise guests. Here are my thoughts!

    Ah, to Yuggoth with the prequels, for the original trilogy, Indiana Jones, producing Labyrinth, Lucas deserves my eternal respect.

    Star Wars movies are not only about planets, stromtroopers, imperial march and lightsaber duels. It's space opera with drama of heroes, rich and colorful world, story depth and symbolism. Prequels are full of that, and thats why true SW fans shouldn't hate them. Prequels added so much to the SW universe. I don't understand also comments about "cringy/awkward" love's a space opera!!! It should be like this...This is a story taking place"a long time ago in a galaxy far far away". That's why dialogues are not natural/over-dramatic, that's why we see so much CGI a space opera, almost fairy tale! Prequels are so unique. People need to realize something. In Episode II Anakin was supposed to be a awkward teenager. He just spent the last 10 years training in the Jedi way, deprived of a lot of social interactions let alone with women. Anyways, the fact that people cringe at Anakin just shows they succeeded in creating his character. Anakin has only ever been with one woman and thats Padme - his child love. The fact he isn't experience with romance only adds a plus in the character development and how he acts like an over-protective boyfriend. In Episode III Anakin is a broken man who still had his child's mind. He wanted to help everyone and make the world a better place but lost everything. Most of the people around him (especially Jedi) didn't trust and accept him and also took away the ones he loved. He was a slave his whole life - literally as a child, then as a Jedi "The Chosen One" and at the end as Darth Vader and got stuck into a machine and do whatever Palpatine wanted for the rest of his life.That's the story of an innocent man fighting to make the Galaxy a better place but instead lost all the people he loved so much and ended up in hell... What a tragic life Anakin must have lived. Hayden was great in presenting such complex and conflicted character.

    Really don't get the "prequel dialogue sucked" "writing was bad" fiasco. It's a space opera, it's supposed to be melodramatic, it's a micro feature of the sub genre. The prequels are better than the OT hands down. The original trilogy are far safer film and can appeal to a wider audience, but the prequels are full on Lucas, no hold backs, an autuer making his best work.

    I completely agree. All my animosity for the prequels was washed away. I loved Star Wars as a whole. I LOVE Star Wars as a whole. Going to keep the love alive. I saw that panel and got to meet you that day, so day 1 was pretty killer

    Not gonna lie, I grew up with the prequel so as a kid, I've always been a fan of Hayden as young Anakin. It's good seeing him back.

    bit late on the comment so you'll probably miss is but my mom and i were both at celebration and we're both huge fans of yours so on that Thursday when we saw you at a roleplaying game type area in the show floor she really wanted to get a picture. i probably had the greatest exchange of maybe 5 minute telling her to get a picture with you standing right next to her. obviously she did not get one but i just thought you should know that i will never forget how funny that moment was, one of my favorites of that whole weekend.

    It's a shame that David Prowse (the man behind the original Vader) is still not a part of the celebrations after all these years.

    As shitty as the prequels are (and believe me, I hate them like most fans), I'm glad that everybody cheered when George Lucas and Hayden Christensen came to stage. I would be extremely disrespectful to do otherwise.
    Star Wars franchise for me it's like that prodigious child with amazing accomplishments when he was young (the original trilogy), but when he got older he was involved with drugs for some time and had a really shitty phase in his life (the prequels), but now he rehabilitated himself and just started a new a very promising new career (the new trilogy).

  • The Grif

    All of my friends and I grew up with the prequels, but now we all hate The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones. Revenge of the Sith is actually pretty cool in parts.

    Woah, it was actually really cool and interesting seeing Jeremy make a video without any cuts. He was actually able to speak continuously for the full 7 mins and 39 seconds without blundering any words, without messing up at all, while being thoroughly articulate and entertaining. His thoughts felt more real/genuine without any edits/cuts for some reason.

  • Mr. Oddball
    Mr. Oddball Year ago

    I have to be honest. I'm not sure if it was the sleep deprivation of staying up 14+ hours in the celebration queue hall overnight, the music or the heart-wrenching tributes. But I was struggling to hold back my emotions and not become a wreck. This event was something special and words can not explain it. It is one of the things where you just have to have been there for.

  • Charles Schaming

    there is something in the trailer.. from the old jedi temple, one of them might be "Wisdom of Eosphoros" Why because in that book the "Baalance" is acknowleding that yin and yang are inseperable and ae the 2 sides of the same thing, and accepting both creates balance, REY HERSELF said "balance" well there is no dark and white anymore New Age Luciferian belief shows and tell you that EVERY LITTLE THING has a mixture of yin and yang, they cannot work separately, there cannot be balance unnless even a pebble is both yin and yang, its... fucking... balance... Watch Star Wars Episode 9 declares the Grey Jedi as balance
    "Wisdom of Eosphoros" according to Amazon- What is Luciferianism and how is it different from other beliefs and paths? What do Luciferians actually practice and where is this philosophy derived from? These questions and so many more are explained within this concise, philosophically-oriented book which is entirely focused on the spiritual and carnal approach towards life and the desire towards self-excellence and power. Luciferianism must be approached as a way of thinking, shaping the mind and attaining insight and power within your life. This work is the Introduction of the Greater Church of Lucifer (GCOL) and its philosophy is presented by Michael W. Ford, Jacob No, Jeremy Crow and Hope Marie; each has provided foundation for the GCOL and the New Luciferian Era! Eosphoros is focused on applying the self-transforming philosophy into tangible results, without any specific concepts of Ceremonial Magick. Beginning with the ideals of a Luciferian, exploring the origins, beliefs of life after death and how to attain individual power, Eosphoros offers The Luciferian Philosophy to those with the courage and wisdom to explore it.
    JEREMY you look wise enough to read this yourself if you like the ideas of light and dark being more complicated!

    The Force is with Jeremy Jahns!!! ✹ The anonymity of the internet has an odd way of giving permission to broken, angry folk to revel in their negativity (and contaminate the conversation)... but STAR WARS is truly about hope... and rising above the muck... and family (and creating your own family if the one you're born into was taken away)... it is about embracing the goodness over the darkness. ✨ May the Force be with us, always!!!

    Why can't people talk about Star Wars without bashing the fuckin Prequels. How many times do we have to keep repeating ourselves? It's part of the Star Wars legacy and for once.....I'd like to see a conversation about the material and the lore. Christen came out and it was good seeing Anakin and Palpatine together again.....I don't need to hear more shit about how bad the movies were . Change the record

    I was born in the 90', but I grew up on the old triology. There was no way for Star Wars to be released in my country before 1989... but my dad fell in love and he raised us on the old triology. So I was kind of supposed to be the generation who grew up on the prequels, but I did actually grew up on both, with New Hope being released in 1991 (I think) in here. I haven't stop loving Star Wars ever since. It is so nice that it brings people together and I believe it had to be amazing to be there, it sounds awesome. I would lost it the moment I would see the tribute video... it was so touching, so amazing, so beautiful... rest in peace Carrie.

    Wow, an hour and a half with no narcissistic, arrogant, whiny, self-absorbed, woe-is-me-everything-sucks, bullshit attitudes? Felt good, yes? Maybe a little of what the world *used* to be like? (You know, like back in the 80's) You can thank Millennials for making 'feeling good' a rare breath of fresh air instead of the normal status quo.

    I like the prequels. I dont love them like i do episodes 4-7 (plus Rogue One) but I like them for the set pieces and still, some of the best action scenes ever filmed.
    But when it comes to Hayden's performance as Darth Vader/Anakin people seem to give him a hard time and I dont think its his fault for how the character turned out at all. He tried his best. Its like what Harrison Ford said about some lines of dialogue: "You can write this stuff, but you cant open your mouth and say it".
