What’s your Favorite Star Wars Musical Track/Theme?
The music of Star Wars is a big part of what makes the franchise so iconic and highly revered. Aside from that, it’s also crucial to the signature atmosphere that Franchise seems to have.
I remember when the first teaser for starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Star_Wars:_Episode_VII_The_Force_Awakens dropped a few years ago. When I saw it, it was the music more than anything else that transported me back into the Star Wars universe.
My personal favorite track or theme or whatever, is “ starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Lando's_Palace ”. It’s the theme usually associated with both starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Lando_Calrissian and starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Cloud City . I began to love this particular track after playing the Bespin DLC on starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Star_Wars_Battlefront (2015), which contains some of my favorite Star Wars gaming content of all time. This theme is the reason starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Bespin is my favorite location in all of Star Wars.

Hey, everyone! I know this is not related to Star Wars, but listen up... I just found some major news...
NASA has recently posted a tweet in which every enthusiast has the opportunity to send their own ”name” to Mars along with the upcoming “Mars 2020” rover... follow the link below and you’ll have the chance to submit your name with a boarding passport which will then presumably be brought to Mars in the following year! The subscription is available till this years 19 September!
So I’ve just been wondering, are the Star Wars books based off the video games worth reading? Will I understand them without having played the games?
For example, the book series based on starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Star_Wars:_Battlefront (Inferno Squadron, Twilight Company,) or starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Star_Wars:_Republic_Commando.
What do you think? (I don’t have an opinion on the matter, I’m just asking this before reading them.)
If the new trilogy is set in the old republic what characters are you hoping that will be in it. Personally I hope they cannonise revan and malik.
Alderaan has become the second planet (alongside Tython) to qualify for the 2019 Fandom Cup Finals, which will take place between 12-14 July.
Alderaan was voted as the most favorite Outer Core planet defeating such contenders as Coruscant, Chandrila and Corellia in the Outer Core Division Final!
Tarkin vs Vader?
It might be easier to tell after TROS but so far what could it cover?

Let me make something clear: this is not my work.
I found this on Twitter, posted by a user under the handle @MarienneMaid. Link here:
The thread reads as follows:
“So I was rewatching TLJ and noticed some things...about Snoke.... and how he is basically the embodiment of an entitled toxic fan.
“He’s obsessed with Vader and is constantly comparing Kylo to him and ultimately hates that Kylo doesn’t measure up and is nowhere near as evil. “You’re no Vader you’re just a child in a mask.” The only value he sees in Kylo is his potential to be like Vader...hmm rings a bell 🤔
He’s a bit sexist and freaks out that besotted and bleeding-out Kylo lost to “a girl that’d never held a lightsaber,” Pretty sure those exact words can be found on countless subreddits under M*** S** 🙄 and in TFA novelisation he laments Kylo having “compassion” for her
”In the deleted scene/novelisation he taunts Kylo for showing emotion and creepily wipes a tear from his face. Toxic masculinity does not tolerate anything but the stoic male. Kylo is extremely progressive in how many emotions he expresses, including crying...like all the time
“......like Kylo’s basically the embodiment of the anime eyes emoji 🥺🥺🥺 which....no toxic male would ever deign to show such emotions! Crying?! Expressing empathy for your “enemy’s” shared loneliness?! Tenderly assuring them that they aren’t alone?!...”
“Like many-a-gatekeeping person that might use the phrase ‘true fan’ Snoke is obsessed with bloodlines, and again, only sees Kylo’s value in terms of his family legacy: “...the potential of your bloodline” “Heir apparent to Lord Vader”
“Snoke is abusive. Like actual abuse. Both psychologically and physically to Kylo. And at least physically to Hux. He’s a big, gross bully. Toxic fans spew verbal abuse like it’s their jobs and are all about cyber bullying, stalking, doxxing, etc. (see: Rian Johnson’s Twitter)
“He assumed Luke would be the hero of this story because of course it wouldn’t be Rey nobody. “Skywalker I assumed...” and even when he knows about Rey and how powerful she is, he doesn’t bother trying to train or turn her, he just wants her gone—not a legacy character? No value
“Kylo “stronger than she knows” Ren on the other hand treats Rey as his equal, offering to let her rule together at his side ”you’ll stand with me”, he appreciates the hellish struggle of her childhood, he sees only her potential and wants to teach her. She’s not a nobody to him.
“Which isn’t to say that that line isn’t gaslighting and horrible and he’s a huge idiot. He is. But this thread isn’t about that, but I could see the comments coming so let’s just get back to Snokey poke
Like many toxic fans, Snoke hates how sentimental and soft Kylo is “too much of your father’s heart in you” Vader could kill someone without a second thought—Kylo on the other hand has his spirit split “to the bone” after killing Han. Worst villain ever! (literally the point 😬)
”Snoke only sees Rey as a means to Luke. “You will give me Skywalker and then I’ll kill you” Which is so on the nose for so many toxic fans that even still, are clinging to the idea that she’s a Skywalker, and through Luke’s side too because...Y chromosomes...or something...
“And perhaps the biggest way Kylo isn’t the best rep for the toxic fan? He wants to kill the past and ‘let it all die’. Toxic fans are OBSESSED with the past. Like they freak out if things don’t adhere to the same formula from the OT..but also complain about it if they do (seeTFA)
”And if there’s one thing toxic fans hate? It’s all the powerful ladies in the new trilogy. Especially Rey. And Kylo is the biggest Rey fan in all the galaxy. Like, I really can’t stress enough how much Kylo loves Rey...................’s character
”This is part of why toxic fans hate Kylo so much. He actually rejects so much of what they espouse. He’s the poster boy for showing the full gambit of emotion, he wants to burn the past to the ground, he treats Rey as his equal and comforts her...
”Now that isn’t to say that Kylo doesn’t display toxic qualities; he is a patricidal murderer, he yells at Rey and throws unhinged tantrums and works for an evil regime. He’s got a lonnnng way to go, but for me, if anyone is a metaphor for the toxic fans, it’s Snokey
“And of course the beautiful thing about art is that we can all interpret it differently and in ways that make it more personal and meaningful. I was simply rewatching TLJ and noticed how many lines Snoke says that sounded like they were pulled directly from toxic Twitter”
That’s the thread in its entirety, with only a few minor alterations made for the sake of readability on the FANDOM app.
With all that having been said, I’d like to add that I believe those toxic fans KNEW, at least on a subconscious level, that they were being called out and inserted into the film, hence their distaste for Snoke’s death.
