Uhhh...what happened to all the clone troopers?

There was only a brief period of Clone Troopers, in the Star Wars universe.

End of Episode 2, Throughout Episode 3, they are still being grown.

In between 3 and 4, their growth facilities are shut down, the Empire is back to recruiting citizens to be Storm Troopers. By the end of Episode 6, still a mix of Clones and Storm Troopers throughout the former Empire, but no telling the exact numbers.

If you consider the Clone Wars cartoons canon, then many, many died in between 2 and 3, as well as an unknown number of desertions, etc.

For Episode 7(the upcoming film), it may be as much as 30-40 years later... those Clone Troopers still alive would be far too old for active duty, even if they don't pull what many suspect will happen: "clone troopers have a shortened life span"

Then again, they claim to be ignoring most of the Extended Universe, so who knows what they will claim happened in Episode 7.

TL/DR: Before and after Episode 2-4, The Empire recruits normal citizens to be Storm Troopers. Clone Troopers are only a brief blip in the Star Wars Universe, largely spent on fighting Robots Armies.

Something to do with midi-chlorians.

Was just thinking about that yesterday. Bet it's never referenced again...

Why does a starfighter need wings?

To fly just above the water on planets of course. Have you not seen the trailer for the next star wars movie?

Never understood the Tie Fighter. It's such a bad design.

Star Wars Yun-Harla Starfighter

Now that's a sensible, yet badass, starfighter.

I prefer the TIE Defender myself. Hell, it's so badass that Lego sold a model of it.

That article says he already did the score for the next Star Wars, just not the spinoff.

Yeah, Rouge One which is a spinoff. It always amazed me that Williams maintained ownership over the Star Wars music rights, clever dude.

I have been reading about Disney messing up everything awesome in the world for years now....and yet I haven't seen it happen yet.

I guess I just like their brand of messed up or something.

Lol, wow that was pretty good. They included a stuff here and there from the X-Wing and TIE Fighter games. And holy smokes was that an ACE Tie Bomber pilot lol, that's how I felt when playing that game.

I wish there was a fully voices Thrawn Trilogy and X-Wing/Wraith series like that either acted, CGI, or animated/drawn.

Fucking amazing. Disney needs to hire the guy, NOW.


They're too busy making that carebear version of a Star Wars cartoon show.

The political correctness of Disney is going to destroy what's left of this franchise.

This is timely, John Williams isn't doing the music for the next Star Wars.

Saw this earlier today. So awesome.

Only a couple things could make it a wee bit better: Maybe a little voice acting, and perhaps using the original score. Even a heavy metal version of it. I suppose it won't be long before someone on the internet releases a version with those things.

Well, you aren't wrong, but look at the credits. One man did all the art, one guy did music, one guy did sound effects(largely lifted from Star Wars sources). No way did they have a budget for voice overs.

Also, there better be a Revenge of the X-Wing or something... the Empire cannot win!

Oh, yeah, I know one guy did it. Not saying he did anything wrong at all. Just saying how it might be improved.

As for the next one, check back in 4 years for X-Wing Alliance!
