Alright, so I have no idea if this has been suggested already, but have we thought about giving the various film series of this franchise their own pages? For example, we could have a page dedicated to the Original Trilogy, the prequels, the sequels, and the anthology movies. Given that the Rian Johnson Trilogy was literally just announced, I suppose that one can wait, but I do think there is merit to the idea of giving the other series their own subpages. After all, each of the three main trilogies follows a particular multi-film narrative, each has a distinct style, they all follow different characters (for the most part), and each has had a unique reception from critics and audiences.

You could also just use Recap.Star Wars if you want. Regardless, it doesn't belong here, it's just creating an insane Wall of Text at this point.

I agree. In a main Franchise page, the more concise the better. You have to give the film pages something to talk about after all.

Shouldn't Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels be listed in the description here as well? They're both still considered canon.
03:05:11 PM Apr 15th 2017
Probably, yes.

Aren't they?

Can an ending be both a Bittersweet Ending and a Downer Ending? All the movie endings that aren't unambiguously happy seem to have been listed as both.

Okay guys. I don't know how long it's been like this, but the main film pages should not begin with the entire text of its opening crawl. It's indefensibly ludicrous. On small screens it means that you can't read the text of the actual page without scrolling down, and on large screens it creates this nightmare of white space.

I know the opening crawl is classic, but we don't need this. There are plenty of other classic Star Wars references throughout the whole wiki. I'm going to delete them soon unless someone comes up with a really good reason why they should be kept.
07:54:51 PM Feb 6th 2016
Because it's Star Wars.

That's the reason. Bring them back.

I agree with Karxrida. Also, why is some white space or scrolling such a big deal?

Thirding Karxida. They have been there for a long time, and so what if a mobile user has to scroll a little, or someone sees some white space? Besides, it provides an easy reference to the opening crawl of each film. Put them back.
08:11:59 PM Feb 6th 2016
The opening crawls should stay. The text of each one isn't even that long and they're a quintessential part of the franchise.

The opening crawls should be restored immediately.
08:27:45 PM Feb 6th 2016
Okay, so I created Sandbox.A New Hope.

On that page, if you click the "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." then the title and opening crawl sequences appears.

That keeps the iconic crawl, but doesn't inconvenience mobile users (or people with large screens) along with making the Star Wars pages have the same style as every other page on the wiki.

What do you guys think?
08:34:30 PM Feb 6th 2016
I still don't see what your big problem is with the crawls' effect on the pages. None of the issues seem like a real inconvenience. And it's Star Wars, those movies deserve unique style privileges.
11:45:39 PM Feb 7th 2016
I think the opening crawls should be restored.
06:51:44 PM Feb 4th 2016
Would there be enough examples to warrant making a whole page for Canon Immigrant? It'd make it easier to keep track of overlap between the continuities.
05:10:15 PM Dec 20th 2015
Should the bit in the description about Darth Vader being Luke's father be spoilered? I know it's the most well-known twist in the history of cinema, but still...
02:01:54 PM Jul 7th 2015
Uh-oh. Something went wrong on my end and the article looks really weird now. Can anyone fix my screwup?
06:23:14 PM Jul 7th 2015
Alright, someone fixed it. Thanks.

Star Wars is a Fountain of Memes. Should it have its own memes page?
08:46:14 AM Jul 18th 2014
Of course.

No page for Episode 7?
01:31:06 AM Nov 17th 2013
We can certainly make it when we know more about it.

Notes on cleaned entries:

Well, looks like this article is going to need updated soon as Disney purchased the rights to Star Wars and they intend on making a 7th movie.
02:58:24 AM Nov 7th 2012
Leia as a Disney Princess. Considerably more 'shoot in the face' than most of them have had in the past...
07:00:31 PM Sep 18th 2012
There is a thread here about reorganizing these pages. Join the discussion, if you have something to say.

I pulled the Generational Saga entry below, because I don't think it fits. This isn't a story about an immigrant family assimilating into society. It's about how the sons/daughters redeem the sins of their parents. Also, Leia was referring to her adoptive mother in VI, not Padmé.

  • Generational Saga: In Revenge of the Sith, Amidala states that this is how liberty dies, with thunderous applause. In A New Hope her daughter, Princess Leia, is acting as a spy for the Alliance to Restore the Republic (commonly known as the Rebel Alliance, and, informally, as the Rebellion) and in Return of the Jedi Leia tells Luke that she remembers her mother being very beautiful and kind but sad.

11:58:28 AM Jun 25th 2012
"Often it follows the pattern" of an immigrant family assimilating into society. It sounds to me as if it's about how the younger generation, as an adult, has to bridge the generation gap.

It wasn't Amidala's sins but her generation's sins that Leia was fighting. Leia was refering to her real mother because Luke wanted to know about the mother that they shared.
08:47:34 AM Jul 4th 2012
At the time, Leia doesn't know that her adoptive mother was not her real one. It's also impossible for Leia to have memories of Padmé given that she died in childbirth. This is a straightforward epic, there is no reference to generations except that Luke and Leia are Vader's children.

I removed an incomprehensible and probably inaccurate example:

02:24:48 PM Oct 2nd 2011
Is Anakin's midichlorian count Up to Eleven or Over Nine Thousand?
04:06:14 PM Oct 2nd 2011
Over Nine Thousand. The main title (Readings Are Off the Scale) is even stated word-for-word (or nearly) in the movie.

The link on Unpleasable Fanbase is dead.

I created a High Octane Nightmare Fuel section. There's only a few examples yet, but the Nightmare Fuel page isn't very long either. I'm inclined to think most of the scary moments in the Star Wars series were on some level deliberate, and I would think even the current Nightmare Fuel examples might be better served being shifted to High Octane Nightmare Fuel.
07:52:21 AM Aug 26th 2010, stop adding irrelevant crap and shoehorning in tropes that don't belong.

nevermind, I see there box in the Unfortunate Implications page. Seriously though dude you don't have to yell

Looks like a chunk of the text has been deleted. What's going on here?
10:17:10 AM Aug 16th 2010
It looks like we got a wikipedia copy-paste vandal, someone just eliminated a large chunk of text and replaced it with stuff from the other wiki's Deadliest Warrior page. They did it in chunks, so it was somewhat hard to locate the original text but I think I put it back in its proper order.
