After watching THE MANDALORIAN on Disney Plus several times, here are a few thoughts and speculations. There will only be minor line and observation spoilers
This campaign has been in operation for a while. The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 owner and members have now got it quasi organized. There are a few final goals and touchpoints we still have to meet with our stakeholders, the fans on the Thrawn In Star Wars Facebook page — given that Facebook does not decimate the owner’s use of the social media platform.
The main question we are asking of Disney as Star Wars fans is do they support and promote READING and CREATIVE WRITING?
In 2014-2015, in #GetThrawnIn, we asked of Disney as Star Wars fans is do they support ART?
Now we are working on READING and CREATIVE WRITING. We think these are things Disney is uniquely qualified to support and promote fully and reflect that in their movie entertainment.
Because to understand THRAWN or MITTH’RAW’NURUODO is to READ the literature. Literacy can be improved in the United States of America.
And the greatest expression of taking what one has read in “reading comprehension” is to creatively write their on fan-fictions.
Of course, this is not to say Disney is obligated to any of these stories, but it is the practice of writing at any age that educates and heals one’s mind as research has shown, repeatedly. Creatively writing, along with reading fiction and art, HEALS throughout all people’s lives — and is that not what Disney strives to tell their their heartfelt stories on the movie screen?
With the Baby Boomer population becoming Senior Citizens who are may have chronic conditions, to connecting with Millennials who have new technological ways to write, this campaign may be the most humanitarian one Disney could ever undertake. It connects generations, all who know who Disney is, as a movie studio and theme park destination. Then, the Post-Millennials will be young adults should this campaign project become a reality. It is SWAG77s understanding that many of the Post-Millennials are some of the most avid readers and prolific writers of their age-group.
Bring THRAWN in a movie is an appreciation by Star Wars and it’s fans of a character by design that supports those ideals:
The story character classification of THRAWN can be villain, but villains are seen as great people in some societies. Or for movie purposes, the screenplay can change the classification.
SWAG77 knows that THRAWN IN A MOVIE is a viable project for the Star Wars fan campaign.
We will use the hashtag: #ThrawnInAMovie
Memes with quotes from the Disney canon, first. Legends canon afterward for advanced training.
We have a dedicated creative writer’s group on ARCHIVE OF OUR OWN under SWAG77.
The SWAG77 Thrawn blog is: http://thrawnstarwars.wordpress.com
The SWAG77 Thrawn Facebook Page is: http://facebook.com/ThrawnStarWars
The SWAG77 Thrawn Twitter Page is: http://twitter.com/ThrawnStarWars — we hope to keep it as long as we can but Twitter rules have been really cruel to us and our business.
- USE THE #ThrawnInAMovie hashtag for all fan art you think is fitting and why
- Get your creative writing skills together and contact us — the prompt is the image above if you can’t think of your own story.
- The only other allowance is SAVE THE YSALAMIRI — that’s more open
- SWAG77 promotes these stories for everyone to read.
- Fan Art is on your own but we will use it
- SWAG77 changes the prompt as needed
Your work will go unread, ignored and unseen. No one will steal your work to get famous because they “stole your idea” and presented it to Disney Lucasfilm.
No one will admire your old work.
Employees of Disney Lucasfilm do not look at work and they cannot even share their own work because it cannot be made public.
You are delusional if you think your idea supersedes the legally contracted ideas Disney Lucasfilm has that is out in the open or their non-disclosure agreements and in their bank vaults.
Stop being a narcissist.
As far as Disney Lucasfilm cares about your art or fanfic, it is theirs for the taking. They own the intellectual property, the copyrights and the trademarks on all images, subject-matter, and stories with the derivatives of the said work.
They also have the advertising and marketing strategies that far exceeds yours.
When Disney wants new ideas and polished ideas, they hire the best of the best through professional networks. Because they can. It is based on the collegiality of the work environment and the trust to do the job.
Your nasty comments and hate messaging are only taken into account when they decide to refer back to social media.
It does not matter about how many work hours you have put in, how hard you worked, or how expensive it cost you to create your said piece. It is your mentality that is foul when you failed to do your work for free out of sheer enjoyment. Then you demand remuneration for it from Disney Lucasfilm.
Disney has done their business for over 100 years. You are lucky they don’t sue you for racketeering and bog you down in court. Do you have lawyers that can go against Disney Corporate?
You are lucky they don’t send you a cease and desist order. There are several cases of Lucasfilm doing just that. Especially to presumptuous fan groups.
Lately, Disney Lucasfilm has relaxed its measures with the advent of social media. But you had better believe they will protect all their assets. Keep testing them.
The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 is uninterested in discussing the corporate machinations with Tumblr users, anymore.
Good luck on your efforts.
