We spent the weekend at Star Wars Celebration, Lucasfilm’s official Star Wars convention. Thousands of Star Wars fans gathered to see new footage from Episode VII revealed and revel in their love for the films–many in fantastic cosplay. Here’s some of the coolest stuff we found, including props and costumes from The Force Awakens, Star Wars Battlefront gameplay, and collectibles as far as the eye could see.
Just because the Death star Mark II was destroyed along with Palpatines first body and Vader’s death doesnt mean the Empire was at an entire loss. Imperial forces are still stationed on many many planets, and they still have their fleets. Not to say that the Empire is just a military force (although it is quite fascist), but it also still exists from a political perspective. And plus, the First Order Empire arises approximately 30 years after the battle of Endor…
In a way they are still canon. It just that we don’t see their home territories/planets, but it should still exist like with the many non-human characters in the SW movie universe. There are talks about a Boba Fett solo movie, so we will maybe finally see it in real-life. The canon tv-series Star Wars: Clone Wars did a great job with that with trying to capture in what kind of world they live in and how they interact with one another. The comic books and the games take on the mandalorians may still count as well.
This is all very confusing… Like… if they mention a character previously from the EU, in a canon context… we don’t really know what they mean. I heard that both Revan and Bane had planned references in the clone wars animated series, and that the fact that they didnt happen had nothing to do with them not being canon.
The leader has an hangover and feels quite embarrassed about the whole thing. He does not really want to show “the lack of leadership” in front of all the other non-mandalorians. He thinks it important to be part of the troop march anyway despite this and that the other mandalorians can speak on his behalf.
