My uncle made this for me for Christmas

My uncle made this for me for Christmas

May we swap uncles?

Seriously he and my aunt are the coolest. They introduced me to Star Wars through watching the OG trilogy on laserdisc when I was 10.

Maybe he thinks his uncle actually made this and we just blew his uncles shit up lol

There may be others like it out there, I never said he came up with the idea. Just thought it was an awesome, hand made gift.

The Force Awakens released 3 years ago today!

The Force Awakens released 3 years ago today!

Time flies. Feels just like yesterday getting hyped for the movie and trying to avoid spoilers.

And than my friend watched the Midnight premiere and told me that Han Solo dies and its not worth to see it. I quit talking to him for a few days.

Nothing will ever beat the build up to that movie. In the end I enjoyed that more than the movie itself. I look forward to the start of another trilogy and a blank slate be that RJ or D&D's upcoming movies. So speculation can run rampant again.

I'm a little disappointed that I don't have a new Star Wars film to go and see this Christmas season. Really wish they'd postponed Solo to December 2018 to keep an annual release schedule. One a year feels like enough to keep the interest without being overwhelmed by releases.

I can’t be the only one that sees the dick on his forehead

It's good, but the glass looks a little stained.

My reaction was "that looks great, but theres a dick on his helmet"

Better luck next time, OP! Try using clean glass!

Completely wrong blade colors. Interesting.

I think they are more referring to the fact that Vader's is blue and Luke's is red.

George Lucas had originally changed the title of the film from ‘Return of the Jedi’ to ‘Revenge of the Jedi’ after advice from the producer Gary Kurtz. However, during the run up to the film’s release Lucas changed his mind once more. He believed that the peaceful nature of the Jedi Knights meant that they would commit an act of ‘revenge’, and the film returned to its original title.

Before Lucas returned the film to its original title, a small number of teaser posters had been printed with ‘Revenge’ as the title, and sent to cinemas across the world. The first batch of these were issued with no release date, and the second printed once a date had been decided. Lucas changed the title soon after the second poster was printed, and the remaining posters were sold through the Star Wars Fan Club.

RotJ dealed with Luke being tempted by the Dark Side and Vader rejecting it so it makes sense

I painted a Endor scene for a boys bedroom. It was loads of fun to do.

I’m afraid the shield generator will be quite operational when your friends arrive.

Awesome!!!!

Actually super easy to paint! I was worried the design wouldn’t work out because it is so simple, but looks so great big!

Oh damn that’s nice. Mechanical/technological structures overgrown with plant life is my aesthetic and I really don’t know why.

This is where all the Ewok teenagers go to smoke death sticks.

This tells an amazing story without any people or words. It’s beautiful.

Congrats on the twins!

Are you going to name her Sheev?

A SITH LORD?

At this point that is an absolute

That would be an awesome game...

I‘m getting more of an adventure vibe from this than something action oriented.

It was. Super Star Wars on the SNES.

BTW, awesome art, OP!

“Feeling the force” is literally what happened to her at the end of TFA. She was being beaten, then she let the Force basically take over and guide her movements. Which is essentially what Ben is telling Luke to do here.

Luke’s failure in TLJ clearly parallels his moment of weakness in ROTJ, but it also echoes Mace’s moral failure in ROTS- the one that directly led to Darth Vader’s creation and the fall of the Jedi. Both tried to take the quick path in ending evil. Both forced a confused young man to make a choice.

The difference is Mace was staring down at a Sith Lord who had just tried to kill him, and did kill two other Jedi right in front of him. Also Anakin wasn't confused, he knew if Sidious died his chance at saving Padme would be gone. He was conflicted, not confused.

Luke was staring down at a sleeping young man who hadn't done anything yet.

A bit different.

I kinda looked at it as a nod to the question "if you had a chance to kill young Hitler, would you do it?", but I do enjoy the many parallels (intentional or not) that TLJ has.

Luke's scene here in TLJ reminded me of how Anakin foresaw (foresue? haha) Padme's death, and in trying to prevent it, actually created the circumstances for it to occur, just like Luke's attempt to prevent Ben's horrific future probably helped it to pass. Like father, like son, right?

I'll push back on this a little. Anakin was confused in a moral sense- to him, the line between good and evil, between Jedi and Sith, was blurring. That's what much of the first half of ROTS is building up to, and that's the idea that Palpatine tries to plant in his brain- that ultimately, the Jedi and the Sith are merely two sides of the same coin, that they just want the same thing. You're right that he's conflicted due to his dilemma with Padme (and that is certainly his primary motivation for wanting to save Palpatine), but there's an additional level to it; when Anakin see's Mace Windu abandon the Jedi way, it solidifies his growing suspicions that the Jedi are no longer "the good guys". It's what triggers his decision to turn.

And while Ben hadn't technically done anything yet, the story definitely makes an effort to communicate just how much darkness was lurking inside him. I mean, look at Luke's face when he peers into Ben's mind. Whatever he saw in Ben's future was horrific. Moreover, Luke mentions in that same scene that Ben had already been turned. Again, I'm not defending Luke's actions (or even the movie itself, since I'm not trying to turn this into another TLJ debate), but Ben's growing darkness clearly was threatening enough in that moment to elicit an instinctual response of violence.

But again, both were failures. Both were moments of abandoning the Jedi way, that had far-reaching consequences. So yes, they are different- different movies, different characters, different external circumstances- but they do echo eachother on a significant thematic level.
