A Look At The Yoda Arc From Clone Wars

Brad Monastiere posted on Star Wars Junk about Yoda and the final completed arc of The Clone Wars:

Yoda has been with me as a character for 35 years. He was always an essential part of Star Wars in all eras. But after this arc, I grew to love Yoda. I saw him endure physical and spiritual pain, only to come through as strong and as wise as ever. We fell in love with Luke because we could understand and follow him through his struggle. We felt his lows and shared his happy ending. Now, we finally experienced something similar with Yoda. Yoda’s story in this arc is so abstract, but so real at the same time, it’s like nothing else I have experienced in consuming Star Wars stories, in whatever form they’ve taken over the years.

    I love Yodas Character in general, and I greatly enjoyed his arc. The only minor complaint I have is yodas revalation at the end of it. “Not sure one ever does win a war i am” as I beleive his character difference between 123 and 56 is exaggerated. He certinly learned from the Clone Wars but he was already very very wise. He already knew just by being in the war they had lossed, as he says in the end of 2 “Master obiwan not victory, the shrowed of the darkside has fallen, begun the Clone Wars has.” But thats a minor complaint. I am curious as to his species, but like it’s mystic. I would love a movie about Yaddle, the only othr recorded member of his species. Yoda is a great and wise teacher and among my favorite Star Wars characters.

    LOL !

    “Just 15% of fans surveyed cited director J.J. Abrams as fueling their high hopes for “Force Awakens.” Most of the excitement surrounds VFX: 36% of respondents said “more advanced CGI” technology is a reason it will be the best “Star Wars” movie yet.”

      What?! Didn’t they pay any attention to all of those videos and interviews about how they’re doing this the old fashioned way??? I guess not.

      The title of that piece may as well have been called “Fans Have Over-Inflated Expectations Based On No Particular Reason.” Take the quarter of those surveyed who said it will have a “more interesting story.” Based on what? We don’t know jack about the story other than spoilers that may or may not be accurate (and aren’t all of that interesting anyway).

        I’ve said it many times before, and I’ll say it again… history will repeat itself this December. Get ready to hear constant complaints about how Abrams/Kennedy/Disney ruined people’s childhood. There’s just no escaping the disappointment of fanboys.

      • Keith Palmer Says:

        I admit my worry’s been all The Force Awakens has to do is not include “goofy comedy relief characters” and “sappy romantic dialogue” for a solid cadre to acclaim it as “a finely judged return to the glory days” and keep repeating that until it’s conventional wisdom. At the same time, I’m aware Abram’s Star Trek was pretty highly praised to begin with, and things seem to have sort of cooled off since, but there’s that whole matter of “different initial conditions”…

        I knew this “practical” shit was going to back fire because remember when film sites were pissing and moaning about the CGI in Jurassic World. And how much money did that film make? Disney is going after the wrong crowd and it is going to blow up in their face.

        They were very secretive in the marketing for The Fifth Element back in 97. Why? Because the filmmakers were French, and didn’t want Americans ruining French culture like they always do! Haw!

        All I knew was that it took place in the future with flying cars, it starred Bruce Willis and that “it must be found”. I was there, brah!

        They were not being secretive because of the film’s great storyline because…there was no story! There was just some jibba jabba about stones, a diva, love, and things that are super green!

        Didn’t stop me from loving it and seeing it multiple times in the theaters.

        All they need to do is put the famous Star Wars logo on the poster, and people will come because…it must be found!

    • Nick Skywalker Says:

      Based on WHAT!?! It’d be one thing if we had a decent trailer, plot info, and an idea of who/what the characters are but since we don’t, this is pure foolishness. That is the most ridiculous article I’ve ever read. I don’t know anyone “excited” to see the film. If anything, the horrible marketing campaign is what’s really killing it, IMO.

      • lazypadawan Says:

        There are people excited for it simply because it’s more Star Wars. But “the best one yet?” I’m not even sure why it needs to be the “best.” A worthy and interesting addition to the saga ought to be good enough.

      • jarjarbacktattooguy Says:

        Haven’t you gone into a lot of older obscure films with very little knowledge of their content? I have. The fun is the mystery of discovery.

        Everyone today wants every film presold to them. Nobody wants to take chances. It’s like eating at McDonalds. Everyone already knows what a Big Mac tastes like, they don’t have to sell you when you get there.

        Episode VII might be total poo, or it might be the best movie evah! There’s anticipation because we don’t know!

    I agree with roxam — this is why I kind of pity those OT neckbeards who think TFA is going to close out all the fandom divisions and everyone will walk out of the theatre a perfectly happy camper because “WOW, that was like the Original Trilogy and nothing like the prequels!”
    I mean, c’mon – this is Star Wars fandom. There’s gonna be a vast array of opinions and controversies and what not. Just like with any SW content that comes out. It may be on the level of the PT or it may not. But it will happen.
    I was seeing a review video of the recent Aftermath novel and the guys were ranting about their disappointment, at a point even saying they had “Phantom Menace’d” the novel. I wonder what makes these guys think they won’t “Phantom Menace” TFA. There will be disappointment no matter what — and that’s why I think it was foolish of J.J./K.K./Disney to take the hype train the way they did. They may have just set up the fall even bigger than it had to be.

    I enjoyed the Yoda arc. It was nice to have Qui-Gon Jinn back and nice to see Yoda in action once more.

    However I had trouble understanding what those spirits were saying and the Morriband name irked me a little. Being an Expanded Universe fan (I REFUSE to call it “Legends”) I was more used to Korriban. However Morriband was used in George Lucas’s early drafts so I understand why he would want to call it that. I’m not going to spend sixteen plus years sulking about it. It was just a very minor detail. Other then that it was amazing.

    I loved Tim Curry as Darth Sidious. He is so dark.

    Starwars.com just posted a piece on practical effects, and actually included two examples from the prequels on their list.
