If This Movie Has Suggestive Themes, Why Rate it PG?[]

Yeah, I was curious about why it was rated "PG" instead of something like "PG-13". If you have watched Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, well, do you remember at Jabba's Palace, there were brief images of somewhat slaves who were forced to... I don't know... dance half-naked (eugh) for Jabba the Hutt. And remember how it showed that Princess Leia was forced in a metal bikini in which the outfit was very, very scanty. I wouldn't want to go to a swimming pool or a beach with all women in their outfits.

You know, this topic isn't meant to be funny. I was just curious why this movie was given that rating.

Because the PG-13 rating didn't exist until 1984, when movies like 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom' and 'Gremlins' pushed the limits of PG even further than suggestions of sexual slavery. --User:Gues

Is the Aftermath canon?[]

Is the aftermath section still considered canon? I added the nolegends template to this article and the template was removed without a content change, so I am just wondering.User:ToaMatau2004

  • The film exists in the canon and Legends continuities, so Legends material is applicable to the page. I think it could be clarified that the prelude and aftermath sections exist only in Legends, but the content being there is fine. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 18:44, June 3, 2014 (UTC)
    • It's Possible that like for the characters, we could do a Legends and Canon article for the films.--Marcuspearl (talk) 03:01, February 21, 2015 (UTC)
      • Nah, that's completely unnecessary. We just need to mark whatever Legends content we keep in these pages as Legends, like through a non-canon banner in the sections. And Legends information should be kept to its own section, something like "Apocrypha." - Brandon Rhea(talk) 04:12, February 21, 2015 (UTC)


There is a lot of Legends content in this article. I thought we were refraining from that. --Marcuspearl (talk) 02:41, February 21, 2015 (UTC)

Time elapsed between ESB and ROTJ[]

In the reference book Star Wars in 100 scenes, it is stated that ROTJ takes place 6 months after ESB. However according to established sources, ROTJ takes place 1 year after ESB. Should the page remain the same or be edited to indicate this film takes place 6 months after the last one? Unsigned comment by Cong4400 (talk • contribs).

  • Remain the sameJS-4422 11:16, April 24, 2016 (UTC)

Rex should be In Apperance[]

He was mention in rebels to be on Endor and he is the old man which is canon--Dogsteeves (talk) 08:01, March 6, 2018 (UTC)

  • It was only mentioned that he participated at Endor, we still need confirmation that Rex is Nik Sant--Vitus InfinitusTalk 08:02, March 6, 2018 (UTC)
    • The Rebels Recon Twitter question thing is continuing over on the Star Wars Show. Maybe you would want to ask an official source? - AV-6R7Crew Pit 08:04, March 6, 2018 (UTC)

Inaccurate Dating?[]

  • The time between ESB and RotJ is stated as being 6 months. However, no source is given from that time declaration. People have said in this talk page that the date came from Star Wars in 100 Scenes but that's a Legends/non-Canon book. What's the actual source for the time difference? SenatorConfer (talk) 20:17, May 14, 2018 (UTC)
  • The actual source is the James Kahn novelization of Return of the Jedi from 1983 on page 21 where it indicates Han spent 6 months in carbonite. Someone sent me a message after I changed it to 6 months in the text here indicating that the novelization is not canon. Not true. Per a long discussion with Pablo Hidalgo at LFL in 2016 on Twitter about the novelizations and new canon in the general, this is what was stated: The novelizations of the movies are canon up until a movie released after the novelization retcons information in the novel. If that is the case, like when ROTS retcons Leia's memory of her mother, only that portion of the novelization is decanonized. He was very specific about only subsequent movies being able to decanonize a novelization and that the novelizations are still in the new canon.Unsigned comment by SAMcCaffrey‎‎ (talk • contribs).
    • Everything on Wookieepedia should follow site policy. Specifically, Wookieepedia:Canon policy says "Del Rey has stated that the original film novelizations "are canon where they align with what is seen on screen in the 6 films and the Clone Wars animated movie." As these novelizations contain many supplementary details not found in the films themselves, Wookieepedia treats them as Legends material in whole." However, if what you said is true, then the policy can be changed through Wookieepedia:Consensus if you have evidence, like a screenshot of Hidalgo's Tweet.
