              No, it wasn't. Throughout every period in human history, commanders stayed out of fighting so that they could command. You don't do that by running point in the field. The other anon is correct. If a commander is personally fighting, then their side is losing or the commander in question is a moron.

                Leaders being at the front was used to bolster morale. Historically, taking even 20% losses was enough to cause undisciplined armies to crumble. Having the general there bolstered a troops confidence though because they'd be risking their life too. That's why there are multiple instances where leaders like Alexander, Ceasar, and even up to the gunpowder era with Gustavus Adolphus, led from or mostly near to the front. Of course the morale argument falls apart with robots but humans need it

              as a prequel villian, he's meant to emulate an aspect of vader. Maul was the intimidation factor, douku was the fallen jedi aspect and in the generals case, a cyborg terror whose as stunted as he's enhanced. Being more machine than man is a disadvantage in a setting where turning off your targeting computer when a friends ghost tells you to is the correct option. Palpatine knew this, it's why greivous works for the faction he set up to fail, and why Vader was punished with a suit that caused him constant agony.

      To be fair, Lucas and Filoni were already trying to slightly rewrite his backstory when TCW was airing, years before Disney. It's where the "ackshually he's just jealous of the Jedis abilities" story came from. Disney has begun to recanonize a lot of his story, but it's in shit casuals don't read. People only pay attention to the movies and shows, and I doubt he'll get anything in those. It'd be a perfect Tales of the Separatists story.

                Grievous is just some separatist general. He is literally General Grievous. And no, Lucas from the start said that he is part-alien part-droid. Of course, designs evolve. But designers work off of what the director tells them. Then Lucas picks the design that is closest to his vision.
                Lucas created all the characters and their concepts. They came from his fricking head. Which is then translated into designs. Of course, he did not design them - that's not his fricking job. What that dumb monkey said here:

                And lucas didnt come up with the idea for grievous anyways.

                No, he didn't "start" as that. That was merely one of the many initial designs. Among others was what would become Magnaguards and "Winged General" by McCaig. Lucas did not describe him as a "kid in the chair." Lucas described his as "part alien" or droid. Kid in a chair was Thompson's interpretation, that was rejected by Lucas outright.

                He described him as a separatist general and let the artists go in whatever direction. He did the same with not-ventress. And again its fine, george's idea just wasn't very specific, he needed to fill a role and didn't come up with much of personality for a bit and changed his mind..like he always does.

                I mean..he avoids your gunfire there so its something. And he's not portrayed as a pussy.

              Reminder that Grievous was never "ruined." It's just that the so-called "Expanded Universe" fanfiction is a drastically different interpretation of the character, that has nothing to do with the actual Star Wars and reality of the person who created the character to begin with - George Lucas. He was always the same in George's Star Wars, from start to finish:

              Fanfiction's interpretation was simply wrong to begin with, which led you people to false expectations, lol.

                >Filoni: Yeah, because that was a huge challenge. I think I've said before how I went back and forth on that one with George several times saying, "Wow, if we do this to Grievous, I think that's going to be a big, big loss for him. His credibility's going to go down." You know, we argued about it back and forth several times trying to figure out was that going to be the best move. George was always pretty resolute that it was going to be fine, and he talked with me through how we could achieve it. And I thought, "Well, if we're going to take him out, then we have to lose something pretty big on the good guys' side to make the sacrifice seem pretty meaningful." So we had to take out Tarpals, which is pretty sad actually. He's a likable Gungan for sure.

                >TFN: So what is the deal with General Grievous’ origin? There’s the first version with the shuttle crash where Dooku upgraded him and there’s the new one with him choosing to upgrade himself. Why the different versions?

                >Henry [Gilroy]: George envisioned something different than what was created for the EU and Dave and I jumped at the chance to explore that. In my mind, the EU origin created a character that was twisted and bitter and very tragic, but not very fun. The great thing about Vader in A New Hope is, as soon as you see him onscreen, you want to boo him. He’s so over the top evil. Same with the Emperor. They are pure evil and they are fun — bad guys you love to hate! Well, until we know who Vader is. Anyway, knowing that poor old Grievous has this background as a noble warrior who was fighting for his people, then was sadly tricked my Dooku reduced him to a straight up pawn, who was played by the seppies, because he really wasn’t the master of his own destiny, he was more a product of Dooku’s evil machinations than his own pride and villainy. It was more in Grievous’ character (as created by George Lucas) to choose to upgrade himself, because he chose to sacrifice his ‘humanity’ for the power to become the greatest killer in the galaxy. He wasn’t able to do it via The Force, so he chose to make himself into a mechanical monster that dominated the most powerful beings in the galaxy, the Force users, the Jedi. Grievous is not a tragic character, he’s a cold blooded mass murderer, a classic old school villain (and different from Vader) in that he doesn’t have any redeeming characteristics. What kind of a vain egomaniac has statues of himself in his house? Maybe one who is trying to convince himself he did the right thing.

                I don't think people really disagree with this, more that they argue that Genndy & co's "interpretation" of the character is more interesting and memorable than the Lucas/Filoni "intended" character and they're right to think that

                While true, it was often used as an argument to deligimtaize it. And cases like boba fett had entire stories dedicated to It or had a little bit more ambiguity. Palpatine in DE had a fairly long explanation for it for example.

                There's Maw which people always cite as a justification for maul, but that was a game with a very excuse plot. And he's much less human than maul being like twice his size so it could just be his anatomy. And darth sion is portrayed as special due to his ability to still stand, presented very much as almost an anomalous usage of the force in the same way nihilus is.

                I mean some of them are even not really accurate issues, but it was based around the perception of them than the reality. Like the special effect thing, given how the prequels used so many practical effects.

              • 3 weeks ago
                Anonymous

                That's not a perception thing, though. The use of practical effects doesn't change how so much of the action revolves around CGI. Moreover, a lot of the practical models really aren't more than backgrounds, and the very limited sets and location work (that, again, accommodate a lot of CGI) give the movies a very flat, sterile look. Geonosis is an obvious example since they made a very large detailed model, yet the arena scenes are a perennial go-to example of unconvincing excess.

                Not all of the compositing in the OT is great either, but with a few exceptions (like the speeder bike sequence on Endor) there's usually more for the lighting and camera to make use of, so they feel a lot more alive even in quiet moments.

                Cgi was new during the prequels, so it was marketed around that, even tho It ultimately still used a lot of practical stuff, we can argue if it was composited well, but that wasn't the go-to argument against them lol.

                It isn't, though. Dooku and co. still become rubbery computer models when the lightsabers get whipped out. AOTC is the worst looking, but ROTS suffers from it for most of the movie. Even TPM does with the Gungan side of the Naboo battle.

                The point is that the practical stuff still suffers from the digital stuff. Obviously a lot of the CGI sucked ass, but things like the CGI clones looking awkward or Palpatine briefly morphing into a cartoon are a separate issue from whether or not the prequels had shots of miniatures too.

                People simplified the issue to "CGI bad" but Lucas didn't use it in a good way for it's time.
                Some 3d render shots stick out like a sore thumb, like the TPM battle. The technology just wasn't mature enough for the scale the prequels used it.
                TFA can get away with it because it's a movie from 2015. It's scummy how the studios hide the VFX work but that's another discussion.
                I think things would have been better if the VFX philosophy of the prequels and sequels was swapped around: 1-2-3 should have used lots of puppets, miniatures and costumes while saving the CGI for the absurd things like LotR did and 7-8-9 should have gone all in with crazy 3d rendered landscapes and aliens.

                I like the balance of the production of the sequels. The Rise of Skywalker looks a little rough in spots because it was a rushed, cobbled together mess but overall the movies made smart use of locations and sets. Planet Ireland doesn't look foreign or exotic but it does convey a sense of isolation and peace, for example.

                Eh i think its just a clear case of "see guys we're not like them" but then the actual CGI looks worse and the practical effects arent really used for plot relevant characters (there isn't a single narratively important alien outside of chewie for some reason). It also doesn't help most of the designs look very similar too.

                Its just part of a broader issue with tfa and tlj (and tros just looks kinda bad) the "to make right what went wrong" line is more apparent.

                It ultimately felt unnecessary too, almost like Lucas was trying to insert a little bit more sci-fi into the movie. I guess it can be a bit of a convenient way for Jedi to find other Force sensitives though.

                [...]
                You know, it's very interesting in consideration, because Lucas WAS, at the very least, advocate of the backstory we see in Labyrinth of Evil/Warren Fu's the Eyes of Revolution, to my and many other's surprise. Back in April someone here shared some interview excerpts of Luceno where he confirms just as much when asked whom or what gave him the direction to give Grievous his backstory in LoE.

                Yeah, that was weird. Classic case of the Lucas flip-flop. The story is a great setup for the character, and then he went back on it. I genuinely think it's simply a case of him not wanting someone to steal spotlight from Vader, which makes no sense to me, because I love both characters.

                Plus, even with their similarities using the old Grievous backstory, the end result is completely different. Vader had someone who unconditionally loved him and saw good in him in Luke, and that led to his redemption.

                Grievous didn't, and was always doomed to die alone.

                Which would be weird since the prequels and TCW were a very hard turn into the more fantasy elements of Star Wars.
                I do personally wish SW went into a more sci fi route, but midiclorians weren't the way to do it.

                I agree, if I was push it a bit more "sci-fi", I'd maybe change up battle tactics among ships. But maybe I just want that because the ship battles in Battlestar Galactica were so cool.

                It's pretty obvious George nerfed Grievous because he was afraid he'd be cooler than Vader.

                That's the truth of it, and I'll never understand it. People can love multiple characters at once. And even with the similar backstories, they're both still different enough to be their own individual people.

              It's weird that Lucas intended Grievous to be some kind of craven slime-ball considering how his character design doesn't communicate that at all. He's a hulking, 7-ft. tall, cybernetic monstrosity who explicitly specializes in the use of melee weapons when fighting others. The skeletal designs shouts violence and death, not running away like a pussy. Nothing about his appearance indicates the sort of mustache-twirling, cowardly villain George Lucas apparently had in mind, and there's plenty of other character designs that would've fitted it much better (such as nemoidians, since they're literally chink amphibians) so the whole thing just comes across as jarring.

                I'd also ditch the multiple wives thing for Grievous, personally. It just feels weird and excessive, even if it is fun to joke about.

                I kinda wish we could explore what he'd be as an antagonist without the need to be disposed of for vader ngl. Only the rots novelization had that, which seemed to be a remant from an older idea of him being a proto-tarkin (probably cause lee), everything else in both canon and EU doesn't have that backstory. He had no problem training grievous, had zero issues being friends with demask, wanted yoda to join and about half of his dark acolytes weren't human, well outside of sora they were near human but still.

                Real life cultures have multiple wives, if everyone in SW is monogamous it feels weird?

                I'd drop the whole thing entirely. Out of all of his backstory, it feels like the fat that can be trimmed away. I'd have him grieving Ronderu by going straight to war, and focusing on that singularly, like he would later in life. At best, burying his grief in a family he isn't even really there for seems redundant, and an outright fetish fic at worst.

              This is sort of the problem when one makes prequels. The early villains, concepts, or events had to be limited to a smaller scale than what comes later on.

              Every Prequel villain had to be lesser than Vader in every way so there is a hard limit on their capabilities.

          Grievous' chest was never crushed. That's Genndy's fanfiction that he came up. Lucas never thought of that when making the movie and making him coof. In Lucas' Star Wars, Grievous was always coofing.

          Reminder that Grievous was never "ruined." It's just that the so-called "Expanded Universe" fanfiction is a drastically different interpretation of the character, that has nothing to do with the actual Star Wars and reality of the person who created the character to begin with - George Lucas. He was always the same in George's Star Wars, from start to finish:

          Fanfiction's interpretation was simply wrong to begin with, which led you people to false expectations, lol.

          I find it disingenuous to call Genndy Wars fanfiction. They were made with Lucas's supervision specifically to hype up the release of Episode 3. The television event was so widely advertised that my Father's Middle aged friends would come over to our house just to watch what originally were 2 minute episodes.

          Lucas new full well he has set the expectation in everyone's mind that Grievous was the biggest badass the franchise has ever seen. Everyone knew who he was and what his deal was weeks before the movie even came out.

                Are you calling George and Genndy liars? By Genndy's own admission, they were allowed to do what they wanted. They did not even have contact with George, but rather with Howard Roffman - the president of Lucasfilm licensing, i.e. the EU shit. Genndy himself met with George only a couple of times. And George said as much. Genndy did the stories himself:

                >They were made with Lucas's supervision specifically to hype up the release of Episode 3.
                They weren't. 2003 CW was entirely Genndy's fanfiction.

                GEORGE LUCAS: The original Cartoon Network series was just a little fun thing, kind of a promotional lead-in to Episode III. It was a test and when we finished I said I wanted to push the boundaries of animation, do a little anime. So it was a chance to play with the medium. I think a lot of the fans will like to see it on the big screen.

                George Lucas: Well, the Genndy show was an experiment that we did with Cartoon Network that was 5 minutes each, they went sort of where commercials normally go, and it was an experiment, not only in doing five-minute shows, but it was an experiment in trying to translate "Star Wars" into an animated medium, and we felt very good about that. We thought it turned out really well, and we then took it to the next level, which was to do a full-out animated series of "The Clone Wars." There's not much overlap. Genndy did most of the animation and most of the stories for the first experimental series, and this one I'm pretty much following the mythology and the rules of the features.

                Genndy literally came up with his version of Grievous all by himself, from his character to his fighting style. All Genndy got from George was early versions of the Grievous' concept art. That's it.

                He created the whole thing. It's not that the EU elevates Star Wars, it's the EU which is written by no-name third-grade sci-fi writers that is elevated by BEING STAR WARS - one of the most famous movie series in the history of mankind. People bought it because it was STAR WARS created by GEORGE LUCAS, the one that they saw in the theaters with their parents, not because it is some fricking book written by James Luceno or whatever. Lucas allowed those no-name authors to play in his sandbox. He was generous enough to allow it to exist. And those authors were paid for their work. Of course, he made money off it. Even though it was minuscule, compared to the actual juggernaut that carried Lucasfilm: toys and DVD sales.

                The Eu does elevate specific characters sure. No one cares about movie coward grievous. People care about the grievous in the comic and 03 show. And he sold merch of EU original characters which were bought not by star wars fans that only saw the movies but by people who cared about those specific characters. Frick disney is still selling EU merch now.

                No one knows EU Grievous even exists. Hundreds of millions of people saw ROTS and TCW - and that is the only Grievous that exists and that is known. For hundreds of millions of people, ROTS was Grievous' introduction. EU fans are such an inconsiderable minority that they are completely irrelevant. They are vocal, however, and b***h the loudest. But most of the people simply don't care.

                For most people, Grievous' first appearance and his characteristics were defined by Revenge of the Sith:

                Reminder that Grievous was never "ruined." It's just that the so-called "Expanded Universe" fanfiction is a drastically different interpretation of the character, that has nothing to do with the actual Star Wars and reality of the person who created the character to begin with - George Lucas. He was always the same in George's Star Wars, from start to finish:

                Fanfiction's interpretation was simply wrong to begin with, which led you people to false expectations, lol.

                That is Grievous: a cheesy, cheating coward, who coofs and laughs to himself all the time, who always runs, and in the end gets btfo. That is the Grievous that everyone knows, that 99% of the people know. Again, look at ROTS box office and DVD sales. And then subtract the EU numbers. It's a grain of sand in comparison.

                >Why use ideas from it?
                Because he owns it. He recognized the people's creativity and in that way he rewarded some of it by using it in his Star Wars.
                >Those two concepts are at odds. Either he didn't consider it canon at all or he at least considered it secondary materiall.
                Not really. He did not consider it canon to his Star Wars world, period. But he could use the designs from it, like Aayla Secura or Darth Talon in his ST.

                They didnt ask him tho, he came to the licensing woman after dark empire and told her to give notes. That's how she tells it would be weird to lie about that. And then he gave notes on every single novel and comic, until fate of the jedi where ei guess he just stopped caring about them. He flat out had them re-do the entire outline of NJO cause he said anakin shouldn't be the protagonist.

                That implies some level of recognition. Again not as canon perhaps, but not as fanfiction either.

                And quinlan vos, and the whole planet of curuscant, and the idea of holocrons (they were in a deleted scene for atoc even if they didn't make it in). And double bladed lightsabers. And dual wielding.

                And even then, you have to be considerate of those "statements", because they came from EU people, and not George, whereas George actually said this:

                Not really. Again, Licensing can ask him questions, but it is still not his Star Wars, and it is very loose: [...]
                He was very consistent over the years, that the EU was NOT his Star Wars. It was a parallel world, like Star Trek TV-shows and Star Trek EU. And even the EU people said multiple times, that everything post-ROTJ is merely their interpretation of events, and NOT George's, and if George was to ever make anything post-ROTJ, it would not take into account the EU.

                >They were made with Lucas's supervision specifically to hype up the release of Episode 3.
                They weren't. 2003 CW was entirely Genndy's fanfiction.

                >Genndy: I was really nervous because it was a Star Wars project and we didn't know if we were going to be given the opportunity to do our thing or if we were going to have to work from someone else's script. It was a real pleasure to find out that we were going to be given complete free reign to do whatever we wanted to do.

                GEORGE LUCAS: The original Cartoon Network series was just a little fun thing, kind of a promotional lead-in to Episode III. It was a test and when we finished I said I wanted to push the boundaries of animation, do a little anime. So it was a chance to play with the medium. I think a lot of the fans will like to see it on the big screen.

                George Lucas: Well, the Genndy show was an experiment that we did with Cartoon Network that was 5 minutes each, they went sort of where commercials normally go, and it was an experiment, not only in doing five-minute shows, but it was an experiment in trying to translate "Star Wars" into an animated medium, and we felt very good about that. We thought it turned out really well, and we then took it to the next level, which was to do a full-out animated series of "The Clone Wars." There's not much overlap. Genndy did most of the animation and most of the stories for the first experimental series, and this one I'm pretty much following the mythology and the rules of the features.

                Genndy literally came up with his version of Grievous all by himself, from his character to his fighting style. All Genndy got from George was early versions of the Grievous' concept art. That's it.

                For example, it's funny, how people think George "line-edited" ROTS novel, because Stover said that in a post on TheForce.net, and in that actual post he literally says that HE DIDN'T SEE LUCAS DO IT, and he ASSUMED IT, because Lucas edited SPECIFIC SCENES, which Stover read as him literally reading the entire fricking novel and editing it line-by-line, despite it being WILDLY different from the actual movie, and having outright moronic stuff, like Dooku being racist and Anakin quipping while killing the Separatists.

                There is nothing moronic. He needed to kill them to become strong in the Dark Side to save pregnant Padme, and he needed to kill them, because otherwise there would be a civil war without end. Whereas ROTS novel is full of actually dumb stuff. Dooku being racist just makes no sense. It is so outlandish and out of nowhere, that it is honestly just baffling. It is not even consistent with the rest of the EU, where Dooku wasn't characterized like that anywhere - ever. Or the fact that Anakin was mad at the Council because he could not get some fricking holocron from the vault, lol. Or Mace Windu ackchyually using the Dark Side because muh VAPAAD. Or Palpatine arguing that being a Sith is not illegal. Or Yoda complaining that the Jedi are "stagnant". It's full of dumb stuff that is entirely contradictory to what George Lucas had said and had done, both before it and after it.

                Yes, because after chopping off Mace Windu's hand and betraying the Jedi Order, there was no coming back for Anakin, and he had to commit to it fully. Saving his wife was the only thing he had left. And you must have missed the part where he was crying, because he was actually feeling bad about what he had done. But there was no turning back. Damn, you gays really have 0 media literacy, which is why you need a bunch of shitty books that just make it worse.

                I love hte novel, the Dooku thing is stupid. I don't think anyone would disagree wit that. The secrets of the council thing does make him seem less well whiney? It gives him an actual reason for the guy that shouldn't care what the council thinks why he cares what they think. The mace thing is from the republic comics. Yoda saying the jedi are stagnant is pretty in-line with the movies id say. The sith thing being illegal is funny, its what a smirmey politician would say.

                And its an actually good literary work. Then again rots is my second favorite SW movie to begin with.

                Not really. Anakin is capable and smart enough to find a way into the vault. It's a dumb thing to be mad about. That is assuming that the Jedi have some knowledge to stop people from death. Which is contradictory to the theme of the movie and what Yoda was trying to teach him: train yourself to let go and rejoice of people becoming one with the force, accept death as a natural part of life. It's moronic on multiple levels. It makes both Anakin and the Jedi actively worse.

                >Yoda saying the jedi are stagnant is pretty in-line with the movies id say.
                Not really. Nothing in the movies indicated that. And I am confused at what exactly is Stover trying to say here? Stagnant how? What were they supposed to do? lmao, he never actually elaborated

Again, what the frick is Stover trying to say? He never clarified.

                Well yes, but it is consitent with anakin's motivations, slightly more than just getting angry over not being in the council which is just a superficial way of showing they don't trust him. And anakin is capable and bold and self assured enough where that external validation shouldn't really be a factor by then.

                I mean he said it in attack of the clones, he said that there were too many arrogant jedi and that their abilities had diminished. That sounds like stagnation. And its yoda's opinion.

            >They were made with Lucas's supervision specifically to hype up the release of Episode 3.
            They weren't. 2003 CW was entirely Genndy's fanfiction.

            >Genndy: I was really nervous because it was a Star Wars project and we didn't know if we were going to be given the opportunity to do our thing or if we were going to have to work from someone else's script. It was a real pleasure to find out that we were going to be given complete free reign to do whatever we wanted to do.

            GEORGE LUCAS: The original Cartoon Network series was just a little fun thing, kind of a promotional lead-in to Episode III. It was a test and when we finished I said I wanted to push the boundaries of animation, do a little anime. So it was a chance to play with the medium. I think a lot of the fans will like to see it on the big screen.

            George Lucas: Well, the Genndy show was an experiment that we did with Cartoon Network that was 5 minutes each, they went sort of where commercials normally go, and it was an experiment, not only in doing five-minute shows, but it was an experiment in trying to translate "Star Wars" into an animated medium, and we felt very good about that. We thought it turned out really well, and we then took it to the next level, which was to do a full-out animated series of "The Clone Wars." There's not much overlap. Genndy did most of the animation and most of the stories for the first experimental series, and this one I'm pretty much following the mythology and the rules of the features.

            Genndy literally came up with his version of Grievous all by himself, from his character to his fighting style. All Genndy got from George was early versions of the Grievous' concept art. That's it.

              George had a falling out with genndy afterwards, of course he'd try to frame it as if that one didn't count afterwards while saying it did while it was going out, literally saying it was the way to explore the clone wars which he was skipping over.

    Why would a cold blooded mass murderer with no redeeming characteristics keep statues to convince himself of anything? That implies something of a conscience. Even in the old EU, with the backstory Gilroy seems to hate so much, Grievous never second guessed himself once he became a cyborg. He was completely resolute.

          Thanks. I'm contemplating giving this show another shot. I dropped it back in I dunno season two or three when it was airing, largely because I couldn't stand seeing Grievous so nerfed. Maybe if I can control my Grievousgayging, I can get something good, or at least decent, out of it. If nothing else, sitting through it will give me more context for fanfics.

          The best showcase of him was the original cartoon, fricking spectacular

          I love how he uses Dookus surprise, fear, and intimidation teaching right out the gate with his introductions.

          How so does Visionaries Grevious beat 2003 Genndy Grevious?

          I'm guessing anon prefers that one for the backstory aspect. It is a killer comic, to be fair.

                It's pretty true. I used to be heavily in the Transformers fandom too. Grievous fans, at least on Tumblr, seem to fall into two groups mostly:
                Us weirdos, who like him as a cyborg and/or organic. If we ship, we are not above shipping him as a cyborg, because we like that shit.
                The ones who prefer organic Grievous. If they ship, they ship him with Ronderu and/or the wives. Probably wouldn't survive two minutes in the TF fandom.

            It's very slow burn Obi-Wan/Grievous, but that is really minimal, and only in later chapters if you don't like that (I do). Seeing Grievous be "normal" among other characters is cute.

      That's fine. It's not the worst backstory. An egomaniac warrior who wants to be THE BEST(tm) turns himself into a killing machine is very suitable.
      The Legend's lore just came first and turned out to be really cool so it's hard to shake the preference.
      It would not be too hard to combine the old and new by saying the augmentations were used to make him more effective at killing the Huk during the war, especially after his half-sister(?)-wife(?)-force bonded lady friend got killed.
      Then there's another reckoning I've seen in fanfiction where Gennedy Grievous had the old EU backstory and was a separate character to the Clone Wars Grievous who has he current backstory. Essentially, Palps and Dooku got worried they made Grievous too good and too independent, so they put him in stasis for a rainy day and replaced him with a competent enough doppelganger who had a hateboner for jedi and an inferiority complex, and made his cybernetics worse. Then brainwashed him into thinking he was Grievous.
      It's a decent enough explanation, and nets you two Grievous's.

    For me, the real Grievous is the micro-series one.
    Everyone can go around explaining shit, but I will say that Grievous was intentionally nerfed for both the movie and the CGI Clone Wars.
    I don't care what George thought. You can have a cunning villain and he can be powerful. And being both powerful and cunning can be insanely lethal.

    BTW, I prefer his original origin story to his current one. Grievous should've been one of the facades (along with Dooku and Maul) of what Anakin would become as Darth Vader.

    >After Grievous departed Kalee, his former warriors, now under the command of Bentilais san Sk'ar, slaughtered the Huk on the Kalee colony world of Oben. They then moved their people to this resource-rich world.[6]

    >Following the rise of the New Order, a conflict erupted between Kaleesh and Imperial forces. Bentilais san Sk'ar and his warriors resisted Imperial rule for over ten years.[13] The conflict ended when Captain Thrawn bombarded the planet Oben. Sk'ar then left Kalee space to join the Empire.[6]

                No, it wasn't. Throughout every period in human history, commanders stayed out of fighting so that they could command. You don't do that by running point in the field. The other anon is correct. If a commander is personally fighting, then their side is losing or the commander in question is a moron.

                Not really. The idea that commanders wouldn't be on the field is modern, and even the person that basically created the modern military system (napoleon) was present in the field of battle.

    I wonder how sensitive his sense of touch is for his armor. This indicates he can feel things, even something like water, but other media makes it more vague, or seems to show damage as little more than an annoyance. I wonder if he can change sensor settings or something.

          It was only in the story Abel G Pena wrote. He would have prophetic dreams, which I agree with the other anon, very strongly implies some level of unknown Force sensitivity. After the shuttle crash, they used Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas blood for a transfusion (how a human and a Kalessh would be compatible there, who knows, it's Star Wars) but it didn't give him any midichlorians. I guess by that point, there wasn't enough of his real body left for him to gain anything.

        I think Grievous' character works better when presented as commentary on the sociopolitical role of the Outer Rim worlds preceding and during the Clone Wars, rather than as a statement on the mechanisms of the Force. The problem is that his current potrayal removes the former perspective entirely.

      pitches Grievous to Genndy as an imposing, badass, ruthlessly competent Jedi-killing machine
      George didn't pitch shit. All Genndy and his team got was a few pieces of concept art. The original Vol. 1 ending episode that was Grievous' introduction originally didn't even have Grievous in it. There was no communication story-wise between George and Genndy. Genndy did what he wanted. He created his own version of Grievous with his own fighting style. Which is also why he didn't use four hands in Volume 1. Because they couldn't tell from the concept art that he had 4 hands. And George never told them. The same reason why Genndy's Grievous didn't cough. George never told them. And they had to add that Mace scene one week before release, it was very rushed, last minute addition to make it somewhat work with the movie. And he sounds completely differently and has different mannerisms.

      Also, only manchildren, hispanics and pajeets like CW2003. It's always non-white DBZ-tards whenever anyone talks about it. It's shallow, ugly and moronic.

        They weren't. 2003 CW was entirely Genndy's fanfiction.

It was a real pleasure to find out that we were going to be given complete free reign to do whatever we wanted to do.

        GEORGE LUCAS: The original Cartoon Network series was just a little fun thing, kind of a promotional lead-in to Episode III. It was a test and when we finished I said I wanted to push the boundaries of animation, do a little anime. So it was a chance to play with the medium. I think a lot of the fans will like to see it on the big screen.

        George Lucas: Well, the Genndy show was an experiment that we did with Cartoon Network that was 5 minutes each, they went sort of where commercials normally go, and it was an experiment, not only in doing five-minute shows, but it was an experiment in trying to translate "Star Wars" into an animated medium, and we felt very good about that. We thought it turned out really well, and we then took it to the next level, which was to do a full-out animated series of "The Clone Wars." There's not much overlap. Genndy did most of the animation and most of the stories for the first experimental series, and this one I'm pretty much following the mythology and the rules of the features.

        Genndy literally came up with his version of Grievous all by himself, from his character to his fighting style. All Genndy got from George was early versions of the Grievous' concept art. That's it.

              I don't quite get why fanatics like that guy try to pretend Genndy's depiction of the character was somehow conceived in a vacuum. George clearly had a different direction in mind for the character early, which should come across as obvious from the very moment he decided on Warren Fu's design. You can also see this in the film's storyboards, Luceno's statement regarding Grievous' backstory in Labyrinth of Evil, etc.

                That was in a deleted scene actually. But its also true that George didn't really seem to have a nailed down version of greivious. He just needed a villain to fill for time until vader could start killing kids. So he was just a sep leader. The chosen design leant on badass but then george decided he wanted someone more cartoony to contrast but by then he had already given the idea that it was a cool abdass.

          I'm not 100% sure, but the further out it goes, the less represented it is. Even in Grievous' old story, it seems vague. They do mention pleaing with the Republic, so maybe the Kaleesh have a representative, it just comes down to the Kaleesh being dirt poor. The Huk seem to have one, and their planet is basically their neighbor.

          I think in the nu-canon, which has recanonized a lot of Grievous' backstory, they switch Kalee from the Outer Rim to Wild Space, cutting off any possible representation in the Senate entirely.

          Tatooine, notably, is also not a Republic world. Geonosis, practically it's next door neighbor, seems to have had some relationship with the Republic, but I don't know if it had a proper representative.

            is actually intriguing.

            >In background material composed by George Lucas in 1977 for licensees of the Expanded Universe, the "Republican Senate" represented a total of 24,372 systems and elected a Chancellor to a four year term. There was a term limit of one term. During a crisis, a Chancellor extended his term to 12 years and finally declared himself Emperor, first by rhetorically attacking the bureaucracy and then by aligning himself with it. The Jedi sided with the Senate after it attempted to impeach him. This story appears to be the germ of much of the events of the Prequel trilogy.[9]

            However, the 2,000 in the CIS poster seems to refer to the Delegation of 2,000, who were all loyal to Palpatine.

              I don't think people really disagree with this, more that they argue that Genndy & co's "interpretation" of the character is more interesting and memorable than the Lucas/Filoni "intended" character and they're right to think that

              [...]
              It's weird that Lucas intended Grievous to be some kind of craven slime-ball considering how his character design doesn't communicate that at all. He's a hulking, 7-ft. tall, cybernetic monstrosity who explicitly specializes in the use of melee weapons when fighting others. The skeletal designs shouts violence and death, not running away like a pussy. Nothing about his appearance indicates the sort of mustache-twirling, cowardly villain George Lucas apparently had in mind, and there's plenty of other character designs that would've fitted it much better (such as nemoidians, since they're literally chink amphibians) so the whole thing just comes across as jarring.

          Idk but Lucaschizo is a self-proclaimed Ahsokagay, in fact, his biggest reason for being so hellbent on going after SW discussion on Cinemaphile is because many Prequel and EU fans don't like TCW.

            I love the EU, i'm okay with ashoka at least until rebels. post rebels ashoka just feels like zombie character, which would be fine for nearly any franchise but SW.

    lmao @ EUgays moving goalposts and strawmanning yet again

    no one gives a shit what you prefer or like
    it's that you homosexuals are all a bunch of schizo liars and conspiracy nuts
    and when proven wrong, proven wrong with actual proofs, you either resort to fallacies, play stupid, or shut down in denial
    THAT is what's funny about you
    it's so easy for everyone to see you for what you truly are
