5 More Star Wars Spin-Offs That Need to Happen

It looks like Disney will be releasing a Star Wars spin-off movie every other year, in between the regular ‘episodes’. I had a few ideas a while back for where the Mouse could take the franchise. Here are five more Star Wars movies you didn’t know you needed in your life until right now.

Amidala vs. Predator

image

The untold story of how Padmé Amidala won the throne of Naboo by battling the Predator. Fifteen years later, she’d be using his skull as a hat.

What a boss.

Save the Last Stab

image

Years before they both sat on the Jedi Council, Adi Gallia had abandoned her studies as a master swordsman after her mother’s tragic death and a move to the big city. But a whirlwind romance with a promising young Padawan learner would inspire her to audition for the Jedi Temple Fencing College.

Librarian Act 2: Back At the Temple

image

Cabaret superstar Jocasta Nu is forced back into the witness protection program, once again posing as a Jedi librarian. Once she gets over her chafing issues, she leads the Jedi Academy Choir to their first victory at the Galactic Singing Championships.

Huttgirls

image

Oola was the lead singer of the Huttgirls, until Greeata started dating their manager. Fired and relegated to “Jabba’s dancer” status, this musical masterpiece is the story of how Oola got her groove back… well, until she got tossed down into the rancor pit.

66 Shades of Grey

image

What begins as an office flirtation for Umbaran staff intern Sly Moore and her boss, enigmatic silverfox Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, evolves into a 30 year romance defined by dominance, submission, and electrocution.

Anonymous asked: R2-D2's memory was wiped at the end of the third movie. Any information he gained before A New Hope was erased. So..?

"Have the protocol droid’s memory wiped."

R2-D2: The Real Villain of Star Wars

image

For years, it was assumed that in the third Star Wars prequel, the saga’s two point-of-view droids — C-3PO and R2-D2 — would somehow have their memories wiped. This would explain why the two droids don’t divulge any integral plot points to the characters of the original trilogy, such as the fact that Luke Skywalker is Princess Leia’s brother, or that Darth Vader is their biological father.

But when the credits rolled at the end of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, it was only poor C-3PO who had lost his mind (so to speak). R2-D2 walked away with his memory card intact, ready to divulge all that important information about the Sith and the Skywalkers and the collapse of the Galactic Republic to whoever asked.

Only he didn’t.

But why not? I can think of only one explanation: the chipper personality of “Artoo” is a ruse. Step aside Emperor Palpatine, because the astromech droid we were all tricked into loving is the franchise’s true Big Bad.

Don’t believe me? Think about it:

First things first. He knew who Luke’s dad was.

image

Artoo went to Mustafar with Anakin on his first mission as “Darth Vader”. Meaning that he knew Anakin and Vader were one and the same.

Meaning that he knew that Darth Vader didn’t “kill” Luke’s father.

image

Meaning that he knew Luke was being sent on a mission to kill his own father.

image

Meaning that Luke could have avoided that whole ‘traumatic experience’ thing with the revelations and the severed limbs.

image

You’d think he’d want to slip that in between “What’s a Dagobah?” and “Oooh, the fog is so scary!”.

He also knew that Luke and Leia were brother and sister.

image

I mean, he did watch their birth and could hear them being named.

image

Come to think of it, he knew who their mother was, too.

image

But I’m sure Luke liked having that big empty hole in his heart.

There are other points in the series where he could have easily helped to clarify matters, but didn’t.

He knew exactly who Yoda was, for example. 

image

Luke could have spared his taste buds from that awful soup.

He was also able to pop in and out of starfighters.

image

So no need for a three-person tech crew every time Luke wanted to go for a drive, then.

He also “fell asleep” while supposedly standing guard for poor, assassination-prone Padmé.

image

Granted, he didn’t say a word when his own girlfriend got her head chopped off.

image

R.I.P.

So next time you see an R2-D2 trash can or smile at the sound of his adorable little chirping, remember how much pain he caused your other favorite characters. And remember, when Episode VII reveals R2-D2 as the One True Dark Lord of the Sith, you heard it here first.

I can’t believe they still haven’t released this deleted scene. Are they just embarrassed that they cut it? It’s probably the most well written scene between Obi-Wan and Padme, not to mention the only scene in the films to actually establish their friendship.
