Prequels & New Movies Did NOT Ruin Star Wars


So, I’ve been thinking about the prequels
and the and the new trilogy. Star Wars, of course. I’ve been thinking about Star Wars. I’ve
been thinking about how people say that certain aspects of these new trilogies
ruin the mystique of Star Wars, [that] they ruin the magic by replacing it with science.
But- Or- Or by making the magical mundane. That’s not what’s happening. That’s not
what happens. The first point are midichlorians. Now, a lot of people mistakenly
watch- I mean, watching the prequels isn’t a mistake, but I mean they watch the
prequels and they mistakenly believe that the movies show that midichlorians
are the source of the Force, but that’s not the case. That’s not- That’s not what
is shown in the movies. No-no-no, what is shown in the movies is that midichlorians
are attracted to those who are Force-sensitive. It is the Force having an effect
on both the person and the midichlorians. So measuring of midichlorians is
indirectly measuring the Force. It’s like- It’s like looking out the
window to see the trees sway, how they’re swaying. You’re looking at the trees, yes,
for the wind. You’re looking at the trees for the wind, but you don’t assume that
the trees are the source of the wind, no-no-no. You look at the sway for the trees,
to see the effects the wind has on the trees, and just- in the same way they’re
looking at the midichlorians to see the effect the Force has on them, to see
how much of the Force is in the person. Now, I know you may be thinking, “But
they’re Force-sensitive, can’t they sense “the Force in other people? Why not do
that instead of measuring midichlorians?” Well that’s because they’re measuring different-
Because when Force-sensitive people sense other people who’re
using the Force, what they’re sensing is not the fact that the other person is
Force-sensitive, but rather, they’re sensing the other person’s effect on the Force. Someone who is strong with the Force,
rather than someone who is more sensitive to the Force. Apparently Force sensitivity is not
something that can be directly detected except by the person is Force sensitive,
and you can only detect your own Force sensitivity. … So they have to find
indirect methods. So- so they had to find an indirect method, measuring
midichlorians, who- who also reacted to the same thing Its indirect measurement, is
basically what it is. So yeah I ruined how midichlorians ruined
Star Wars for you. … But then there’s the new series. I noticed that certain
YouTuber complained about how suddenly anyone can use a lightsaber anyone could
abuse lightsaber before. It was established in Episode V that anyone
could use a lightsaber. Anyone can turn it on, anyone can swing it. Anyone!
It was established when Han Solo did it I mean, sure, it wasn’t in combat, thus he
did not display any Jedi skills. No-no-no, he used it for a mundane purpose, cutting
something open, cutting open something that was already dead. So, if anyone can use lightsabers then
where is the mystique of a lightsaber battle?
Well, between normal people it’s merely a display of normal skill. There’s no
supernatural component to it. But between Force-users that’s where the mystique
comes in, because they- I’m not sure how much this is addressed in the movies but
Force-users can see slightly into the future, a bit more- It’s this kind of- It’s
kind of like the premonitions that- that Yoda has, but way more short-term and way
more clear. They can see slightly into the future which is why- and plus also
the Force and guides them to make the right moves. Those two things combined
makes it so that it’s very impossible for a normal person to stand a chance
against a Jedi, because they’re anticipating your move before you think
about doing them. And, and uh… And sometimes they’re anticipating your
moves without without knowing what you’re going to do. Which is why the moment one Jedi catches
the other one off guard it could end it right there.
A simple bump to the face was what did Darth Maul in in Episode I. A simple
bump to face room often just enough that he got sliced in half. It’s like a game of chess basically,
where- where you’re- where the two participants are capable of seeing
further ahead than normal people. That’s where the mystique comes, not from
whether or not they are capable of turning on a lightsaber. In fact I go so
far as to say that even in Episode IV light sabers were always meant to be capable
of being used by anyone, as they had an external- as the ones presented in that
movie, and in every movie since then, have had external switches, either in the form of an
actual switch, or in the form of a knob, or in the form of a button.
Sometimes the button must be depressed the entire time you’re using it, and thus
making it so that if you let go of it, without using the Force to hold the
button down, the lightsaber will simply turn off. I think some have switches like that too,
where, instead of clicking into place, (stutters) it tries to spring back, to
its “off” position. Anyways, but yeah you have- In throughout the entire- Throughout
all the movies,not once have you ever had to have the Force to turn on and
swing a lightsaber. … The Expanded Universe is another matter where they
had lightsabers that had internal switches, but that was for very specific
instance where- where a bunch of Force-users were keeping non-Force-users as
slaves. Hey I’m coming up on 10 minutes. Seems about right. (stuttering) That was me wrapping
my argument up. But yeah the mystique was never ruined, you ruined it for you.
Know what I’m saying?
