Darth Plagueis: The 'unseen' threat responsible for it all (Battle of the Heroes & Villains)

I'm finishing the Darth Plagueis audiobook.  It is ranked on many lists as the best Star Wars book.

It is very much a prequel to the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy.  I think that it ends shortly before Episode 1 begins.  What is interesting is how it shows all the events that lead up to Episode 1.  There might be too much politics for some people, but Plagueis is shown to be the behind-the-scenes mastermind who engineered the fall of The Republic.

Palpatine gets equal time as he progresses from a young apprentice to a Sith Lord.  His interactions with Plagueis are interesting.

Flynn Movie: Deliver the Truth. Whatever the Cost.

This might be interesting.  I'll try to watch it.

"If" this plot leak is true, there's little hope for Episode IX

This is an interesting leak from 4.5 years ago for the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker (The Rise of Crapwalker.)

"Last year, I had a life-changing experience at 90 years old. I went to space, after decades of playing an iconic science-fiction character who was exploring the universe. I thought I would experience a deep connection with the immensity around us, a deep call for endless exploration.
I was absolutely wrong. The strongest feeling, that dominated everything else by far, was the deepest grief that I had ever experienced.
I understood, in the clearest possible way, that we were living on a tiny oasis of life, surrounded by an immensity of death. I didn't see infinite possibilities of worlds to explore, adventures to have, or living creatures to connect with. I saw the deepest darkness I could have ever imagined, contrasting so starkly with the welcoming warmth of our nurturing home planet.
This was an immensely powerful awakening for me. It filled me with sadness. I realized that we had spent decades, if not centuries, being obsessed with looking away, with looking outside. I did my share in popularizing the idea that space was the final frontier. But I had to get to space to understand that Earth is and will stay our only home. And that we have been ravaging it, relentlessly, making it uninhabitable."

Star Wars - 1950's Super Panavision 70

Star Wars reimagined as a 1950s movie. I think that this is AI-generated. We are living in a new age.

Hypothetically, if Star Wars had been made in the 1950s, it would have been like Flash Gordon.
