    2:18 Is it just me, or does the General's roar sound a lot like Benedict Cumberbatch's performance as Smaug?

    Robert Englund should be Skekung's voice for season 2 and we all know him as Freddy Krueger and maybe have the wisest of the Mystics voiced by Jim Cummings

    I wonder if they are going
    To bring back this General
    In the next season of the show
    And who they are going to get
    To voiced him

      @Johnlindsey289 no, the netflix series takes place something like 800 years before the movie. it takes hundreds of years of war between all the races of Thra before it gets to the point it is in the movie.

    • Johnlindsey289
      Johnlindsey289 19 days ago

      @Tetra Digm
      In the netflix series it takes many years after the events of the graphic novel prequels and in between 24 years before the movie

      @Ami Quinton not at this point in time. at this point virtually everything had been corrupted to the extent that there barely was a world beyond wilderness. their rule ended something like 1000 years before this, during the netflix series.

    It's both a shame and a good thing Skekmal was dead by this point. I have a feeling he and Skekung would be a deadly combination.

      You just know that happened because the writers of Age of Resistance while watching movie to look for certain cues to follow, noticed that The Scientist was the first to go in for the 'kill'.

      The winner is decided by the audience of Skeksis around them who'll want to get on the Emperor's good side. They decide which attacks are the most impressive. So typically the Emperor always wins so long as he can swing a sword and the battle is rigged from the start. It's not really a test of strength as much as authority.
      But then SkekUng shatters the entire stone to pieces and there's no possible way for SkekSil to top that and his plan blows up in his face.

      Actually the General in AOR and the one in the film are two entirely different characters. With the latter being sometimes referenced as the 'Garthim Master' instead and also being absent from the Netflix series, say for the General mentioning him in the final episode.

    I don’t know about anyone else but I’ve only just realised that at 2:18, one of the other skeksis actually the General’s actual Skeksis name, skekUng

  • First Last
    First Last 4 months ago +8

    Here's what I find interesting: Once a Skeksis is stripped, it's shown to be a scrawny, weak looking creature. They cover themselves in large, bulky clothing so that they look like they're big and impressive, but underneath it all, they're all rather pathetic. The Skeksis aren't powerful, they're just pretending to be.

      Did you not see the part where the General cut the stone in half? And later on, Chamberlain was strong enough to cause a cave in with a punch. Sure, they maybe withered, but they sure as hell ain't weak.

    • TCB

    For a bunch of evil vulture assholes they are quite good with follwing rules Il give them that. Even when Chamberlan comes back they let him back in as a reward. The trial by stone has a clear winner and there is no debating it for years on end. They just get on with it. Politics these days are insane no one can agree to anything but back in the day they took out swords and handled it properly.
