The Get #Thrawn In #StarWarsRebels Campaign 2016

tumblr_oafaoetsej1u9srrio2_250

From 2015 our Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why should I get involved?

A. To show Disney Lucasfilm that fans want this character, GRAND ADMIRAL THRAWN recanonized.

This campaign operates professionally by highly skilled community activists.

Experience shows through collaboration our desired goal is obtainable – THRAWN IN REBELS.

This campaign will include a family-friendly atmosphere that educates children about art. 

Life-skills will be learned for for free just because one is a fan of Star Wars. Skills learned in formal settings from an Ph.D. university instructor.

This post is from current content that we posted in 2015. It is our plea to request support for the #GetThrawnIn #StarWarsRebels.

Today, our efforts are to promote reading the Star Wars novels, fine art and classical music. Every one of Grand Admiral Thrawn’s Star Wars Rebels episodes have followed closely to Star Wars Legends canon with creativity and some redirection.  Which is important, now that Star Wars Rebels has been nominated for several Annie Awards.

 

To be nominated for the 2017 year Annie Awards, Star Wars Rebels as a show, overall had to be considered. The art and music of Star Wars Rebels is exceptional. The executive leads on production are award winning and exceptional. If the Annie Awards are going by story, the story overall is fun for children. But we Star Wars Legends Fans, like to think that it was because Lucasfilm production added Grand Admiral Thrawn from the Star Wars Legends books and translated it to screen. It was that decision that is pushing Star Wars Rebels as a TV show to an award nominating level. While there is the exceptional music, there are the beautiful visuals, there are the correct animation in lighting, and a whole bunch more, in production, taking a concept from the books to the screen is what film school trains professional people to do for nomination for awards. As Star Wars fans, award nominations are notable.

It took Disney and Lucasfilm executives to agree to this Grand Admiral Thrawn concept, plan it, review it, and then produce it. They may have not wanted to add Thrawn in because certain Star Wars fans do not know or care who he is. FACT.

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 (SWAG 77) is the group the bridged that gap and helped these individuals understand that it is MORE than fan servicing, Thrawn as character and story is a “cult classic” and some of us have been waiting for more than 25 years to see his presence on screen. We were willing to do whatever it takes, legally, to Get Thrawn In Star Wars Rebels.

We underwrote financially this campaign and put it into action starting on August, 2014. FACT.

It costs $8000 to set up this kind of campaign professionally to completion for a decision, favorable or not. FACT.

SWAG77′s campaign was driven by Star Wars positive fandom where we had goals and touchpoints for stakeholders to support and uplift on social media. Our social media metrics from the positive fandom content were 60% at peak times. If our budgets permitted it, those reach rates would be higher.

As such, that is why we need your support for other projects in consideration. If you want to see more of what we can do, consider supporting us: http://paypal.me/SWAG77/100 to become a Star Wars Fan supporter.

Thank you very much.

Star Wars Rebels – Partial Basis for Grand Admiral Thrawn Campaign

08192014-thrawnbine-discussion-1

[sic] “Her and Grand Admiral Thrawn would have a lot to talk about…”

In 2014, Lucasfilm Star Wars released the images of the Star Wars Rebels characters. That issue incidentally marked the hate groups in Star Wars fandom and their cyberbullying harassment of mainly female characters, one being SABINE WREN who is an artist.

The development of her artistry over the last two seasons has been less and less.

Season 3, we have not seen her actually PAINT as much as she use to. There is a reason. A “new” beloved character was introduced.

GRAND ADMIRAL THRAWN

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 started the #GetThrawnIn Campaign in 2015 due to the cyberbulling for appreciating Disney Star Wars, but we also started the campaign, because of the above official Star Wars Rebels Facebook Page conversation with other fans (source) in 2014…

SWAG77 hereby announces our PROOF that fans positively interacted with Disney Lucasfilm to assist in the planning of the story arc of Star Wars Rebels… It does coalesce with other posted social media.

SWAG77 #GetThrawnIn campaign helped guide respectful discussions with corporate entity. SWAG77 knows Disney Lucasfilm Star Wars likes how we portray their character on mainstream social media outlets. SWAG77’s careful considerations to their process and folding it into our full creative expression, and SWAG77 involves ourselves in their fan activities at Star Wars Celebration in 2012, 2015 and hopefully, 2017.

For 2017, we hope to make a new influence, that is positive, creative and fun with professionalism.

#StarWars Mixed-Raced Species Hybrids

There are several mixed-raced multi-species beings in Star Wars. During Imperial times, there was high human culture. In many of the new canon, like Bloodline and Rogue One, it seems high human culture  mentality has held up.

High human culture is human supremacy or specieism. Humans are the most trusted. Aliens are untrustworthy. Humans are inherently good. Aliens are not good. It is the same done by race in humans.

Therefore, most Aliens stuck to themselves with exception of a few:

The Grand Inquisitor – Pau’an

Grand Inquisitor

Grand Admiral Thrawn

tumblr_oay70a381z1r3iauco1_1280-3

Grand Admiral Thrawn

While both are full-bloodied Aliens, they still have near human and humanoid features that allow them to pass.

Interestingly, Darth Maul is a hybrid. His father is a Nightbrother Zabrak and his mother, Mother Talzin, is a Nightsister that is multi-species near human. Mother Talzin resembles human women more than she does any other species.

DARTH MAUL

Darth Maul

All this to say if an Alien or mixed-raced species did not have the Force, there was little chance of success in life in the Empire AND the Rebellion due to human xenocentric chauvinism. Only one Alien was capable to be included in the Empire and that was Grand Admiral Thrawn. There are other aliens in the Empire, but over time, they were excluded in a separate class.  The propaganda machine would say the wars with the Separatists. But the war was started by the Sith to control the galaxy due to other incursions, thought to be the “Far-Outsiders” or Yuuzhan Vong.

The Yuuzhan Vong were very xenophobic, but that did not stop them from birthing mixed-raced species. Or stop their “Master Shaper” scientists inquiring about these beings to understand them for their gods.

Our original character, Senator Yemaja Lah is an example of that. Was forced to live separately from her father’s people for fear of being killed until they found a good use for her – passing in the human world before the oogalith masquer (Human mask).

It feels like Star Wars has a bit of a problem with mixed-raced species hybrids. The hatred toward them. Not highlighting them. Anti-alien bias because some fans and creators are oblivious.

But at the Star Wars Actors Guild 77, we find this story very intriguing. Which means most of our story arcs will be geared toward understanding this concept. We are doing this to support real-life multiracial people who are often castigated online. We are doing this to add a different layer to the discussion of freedom: Freedom to love.

This is not about saying real-life multiracial people are not human — they are, more than ever. This is about treating people no matter their background. Anyone can be a part of making unified approach devoid of dominating hatred. People can’t change who their parents are and they cannot change what they are. So why blame them? We have to change that. How is the question.

#ReyloFanfictionAnthology: Moonlit Reflections in Rapture

tumblr_messaging_od2bo554ss1rdpjs3_1280

The Force. It surrounds and binds Kylo Ren and Rey. It can expose their every weakness. It can conceal their very presence. It can force them to deal with circumstances that occurs in the galaxy. Between the First Order and the Resistance. It can forgive them for their most egregious sins. Most of all, the Force give them a place, and island, of solitude and peace from a tumultuous ocean of star wars and brings them under the moon and its light as a reflection of themselves.

#StarWars #RP Performance to Full Fanfiction

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 creative process was created to for fan-fiction works with a tests for audience outreach. The post is about one of many of our creative processes for the Get Thrawn In Star Wars Rebels campaign.

First we write a simple script or dedicate a simple idea based on the literature we have from Lucasfilm (canon and Legends). Our activities are done privately.

GrandAdmiralThrawn_article-5-1

For this particular story, we needed to see how well our Thrawn roleplayer interacted with us and how comfortable they would be with SWAG77 roleplayers. The Thrawn RPer has had a very good independent account and has a preference for it because of real life obligations, such as a career.

Once the idea is agreed to by consensus, then we will perform within context and it is spontaneous. The setting is during the Star Wars Rebels timeline and continuity.

STORIFY is the post capture of this particular performance. It is about a visit that Thrawn will take to the planet, Eriadu (which WAS Lothal but has been changed), and Agent Kallus was being asked to set up his visit. Little does Kallus know, he is being evaluated.

Then we post process the transcripts and put them into prose story format. There will be several re-writes and substitutions and deletions. Finally we create our Archive On Our Own Story (AO3).

Star Wars: The Vernissage – Interlude II

Our works will be featured in several writing challenges, such as NaNoWriMo as well as others.

Finally, we promote our stories accordingly to all our social media platforms for the fans to enjoy.
