A Force To Reckon With – In memorial to Mr. Jason “Obi-Wan” Wolfe

young obi-1

Mr. Jason “Obi-Wan” Wolfe was a member of the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 for ~2 years before he passed in 2013. He assisted us on managing several of our Star Wars pages. August 8, 2014 will mark the 1 years anniversary of his death.

Out of several roleplay performances we did, this performance stands out the most. This performance was done in July, 2012 before any knowledge of any of the stories done by Star Wars, today. We did not know the outcomes of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Satine Kryze. But we predicted it by our roleplay performance with Jason’s help. Here’s to you:

Dear #StarWars Fan Police: Overpolicing Star Wars Fandom Brutally

The fan police or the gatekeepers for Star Wars fandom has probably been going on since 1977.

Fan police are over-exuberant fans who think they have watched every single tinkle of Star Wars since they learned of this movie’s existence. They are the know-it-alls of Star Wars. Not Gurus who have the patience of Yoda. Not openness like Supreme Chancellor Palpatine (Darth Sidious). This type of fandom is a psychosis. They have an inappropriate connection to fictional material that drives their daily existence, and it is dangerous. It is what gets moviegoers killed in movie theaters because of one person’s psychosis clinginess to fictional material.

Fans express their fandom uniquely.  It is a personal choice. There is no one way to pursue fandom. Being a fan is about camaraderie and fun. It is about freedom of expression and exchange of ideas so that we all revel in delight. Fans come at different levels. Some just want to bask in the sunlight, and glide along the waves. Some fans want to dive deep into the ocean of the Star Wars milieu. Some fans want doctorates of literature, filmmaking, pop culture iconography in Star Wars. Some fans have Ph.D.’s in Star Wars.

But whatever one’s fandom, it is not lumping an entire group of fans into a pile and debasing or trolling them to hurt them. That is not Star Wars fandom. Just like real life bigotry, racism, homophobia, and many other social injustices aren’t fandom, the above tweet, sexism by gender bash is not Star Wars fandom, too.  That is not gatekeeping, because fandom for this genre is about upliftment, not tearing down.

If the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 has said it once, it will say it again, fandom may be what you make of it, but it is yours, it is a gift. It is precious and you should keep it as your expression of your creativity. But hurting others because their Star Wars fandom is not like yours shows that you don’t love yourself  enough to love Star Wars. You are not a fan yourself if you have to post that psychopathy.

Get help.

#StarWarsRebels @SWAG_77’s #RP Performance Headcanon: The Inquisitor (@Inquisitorius77)

General Grievous’ Spinning Lightsaber

General Grievous answers to Darth Sidious on Utapau

Inquisitors-new-plaything-1

In the Star Wars Actors Guild 77, we are always thinking about how to roleplay our fan fictions on social media. Since we are not given exclusive access to content, we have to form hypotheses as to how such an idea can exist in our current sphere. We do this to keep our performances authentic.

At San Diego Comic Con, Lucasfilm has a panel for the new television show Star Wars Rebels to air October, 2014 on Disney XD channel. The villain called The Inquisitor, voiced by Jason Issacs, is a Pau’an species that are from Utapau, though he may have not been raised there. He has a lightsaber that spins. It is a similar lightsaber as General Grievous’ before he was killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi.

But where did The Inquisitor get his lightsaber?

Since we have very little access to information, we develop a theory and arrive to a plausible hypothesis.

Based on our understanding of the movies, TV shows, novels and books, we believe that one of Darth Sidious‘ contingency plans was to create The Inquisitorius if Anakin Skywalker did not decapitate Count Dooku or Darth Tyrannus.

General Grievous knew Darth Sidious in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. It was obvious that this interaction was not a surprise for either of them. From reading “Darth Plagueis”, Darth Sidious was a master puppeteer and mastermind. He has several ideas in play ready for any contingency through the dark side of the Force.  It would not be beneath Darth Sidious to have an undermining tactic against Count Dooku by training any Force Users from a planet for specific uses.

Another tidbit, in the Dave Filoni “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”, we do not see Grievous interacting with Darth Sidious. We see it only in the movies. Only in the “Star Wars: Clone Wars” microseries by Gennedy Tartosky do we ever see Grievous interact with Darth Sidious as Supreme Chancellor Palpatine.

Darth Sidious developed his Inquisitorius – Intelligence Corps – to be above his “Hands”. They answered to the Emperor, but were under Darth Vader. They were not Sith, but used the dark side to achieve their goals.

Several Force Sensitive children were missed by the Jedi before the fall of the Galactic Republic, were conscripted by Darth Sidious’ military forces. We hypothesized that one of those conscripted places was Utapau, a planet with the Pau’ans. Grievous would take them to another planet and train them. We hypothesize that the Inquisitor was one of those children.

Then as the children got older, they could have gone to one of the well established academies that would teach them military sciences tactics: Anaxes, Raithal, Carida and others.

We hypothesize, that when the Galactic Republic failed and Operation Knightfall was in place, Darth Vader ordered the Inquisitors to find other Jedi and Force Users who would not comply with the Empire and kill them. The Inquisitor worked with the Imperial Military.

Based on that knowledge, we have a plan on how to roleplay The Inquisitor. See him in action in Star Wars Rebels TV show, and elsewhere.
