Time For Another Ask SWPAS

It’s been a while since I’ve done an Ask SWPAS session, so here’s a new call for your burning questions on all things Star Wars!

    1) To what extent is peer pressure a role in creating haters? For instance the haters who say “I would have liked the prequels had it not been for x despite liking everything else” or whom keep saying “I like the PT except for x and y”

    2) What expectations do you have for the Prequels Strike Back?

    3) I know you(and starwarsdefender) are bit apphensive about a Sith as a villain for future movies, but could we have a new kind of sith not tied to the Rule of Two, and the Chosen one Prophecy be about destroying the Rule of Two?

    • Stefan Kraft Says:

      Related to Daniel’s question:
      the prophecy is never directly quoted in the movies (and elsewhere, I think). It is only stated that the Chosen One will bring balance to the Force. What do you think that means? How could this be an element in the ST?

      • Chris N. Says:

        It’s stated in the movies that the Chosen One would destroy the Sith and bring balance to the Force.

      • Stefan Kraft Says:

        Argh, my bad memory. Sorry for that. Still, can “bring balance to the force” also mean more than that?

    What are your thoughts on Colin Hanks’ request for more female representation in Star Wars? Why do you think there’s been more demand for female representation in Star Wars?

  3. Adam D. Bram (The Nilbog) Says:

    As Star Wars activists, we can naturally get pretty passionate. My family is afraid to even bring Star Wars up around me now, because of my trepidation about Awakens and my sense of injustice about how I-III is treated. On more than one occasion, I’ve been accused of being as close-minded and instigatory as the haters, something that is far from my intention and it shakes me to my core.

    So my question is: How can we continue to differentiate ourselves from the very haters we fight against? How do we 1) explain to others why we’re different, and 2) how do we avoid proving them right by actually becoming what we hate?

  4. Chris N. Says:

    Since the name of the blog includes the word ‘Society’, would you be open to include other fans as authors? Or perhaps be open to the idea of the creation of a forum for us Prequel-folks? It doesn’t have to be you the one who creates it, but perhaps accept an association to SWPAS?

    Keep up the good work.

    After 2 years since TCW ended do you think there were some parts of the show that could have been handled better and or had a better sense of clarity? ex. The whole thing of Barriss betraying Ahsoka for no reason and Ahsoka leaving the temple.

    Thing is that I’ve been watching a show called MLP: Friendship is Magic and even though it’s a kids show it has a sense of clarity on it’s stories, ideas, characters and concepts(Like Lesson Zero when Twilight was having a panic attack for not having a lesson to send) yet TCW is a show that’s darker yet didn’t had a sense of clarity on it’s ideas, stories, and characters at the end.

    And yes I know that the show was prematurely cancelled but even before it’s cancellation the show had a couple of plot holes that weren’t addressed.

    Like the whole thing of the Trade Federation developing the Commando Droids yet not having any sort of appearance or mention in ROTS or Wullf Yularen being very helpful and sympathetic despite him becoming an Impreial officer in Episode IV A New Hope.

    I’m not bashing the show I still enjoy it but looking back I think there are somethings within it that could have been handled better.

    Sorry if this is an odd question.

    Have you encountered SW fans that were not fans of the PT, but where you did not have any problems to “agree to disagree?” That is, real fans for whom the PT was not their cup of tea, and you had no problem accepting that?

    • Daniel Xie Says:

      I know three people who are, but probably because they were willing to accept certain themes of the PT but not other ones
