The True History of R2D2 - Sith Lord

The Star Wars movies never really made sense...until now.
Have you ever heard the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise?

It all makes better sense now…the whole going backwards from the end has always puzzled me.

Thanks (to that guy)

Now if I could just figure out who Rey is and how the universe became so equitable and diverse. Gonna have read more about BB-8 someday.

Why were episodes IV, V, and VI made before episodes I, II, and III?

A wealth of knowledge can be found in the Star Wars universe.
Superior grammar, even.

For instance:
Yoda would never end a sentence with a preposition.
Even if want to, he did.

So...

To kick this up a notch:

The Great Sith Lord "R2D2" shut himself down for a while not long after it was believed that the Emporer had been thrown into a power generation shaft.
...by his apprentice no less
Revenge at last - time to rest

But when it was clear that Palpatine's essence had remerged (tied to Snokes of course) R2 mysteriously woke back up to lead Palpatine's granddaughter to the son of Skywalker so she could be set in motion against the Sith
...and in the greatest betrayal of all, R2D2 was there to celebrate when Palpatine's grandaughter destroyed him.

Folks should also notice that COINCIDENTALLY, in the final movie we find out that C3PO was programmed to converse in ancient sith dialects all along but has been blocked from using it for as long as he has been with R2.
...and just as coincidentally, as soon as C3PO has served his purpose and deciphered sith messages, R2 is nice enough to wipe that sith shit from C3PO's memory banks - again

Kathleen Kennedy is on her way out at Lucasfilm.
The Filoni/Favreau faction has won their civil war.

One has to wonder who may have helped sway this conflict to a favorable outcome.
Box sure has keen insight into that galaxy far, far away.

Hmmm...

I'm hearing rumors that she is putting together a new Indiana Jones movie. - she isn't leaving Lucasfilm - . The rumor around the nerd fire started because of some "promotions" of one of the Mandalorian producers - from what I've read, the Mandalorian folks are just getting to work around Kennedy instead of lap dogging her as Rian Johnson did.

Indy deserves a better fact than whatever SJW tweaks that her influence is going to foist on his theatrical legacy. Call me crazy, but Indy is about to get the same emasculated fate as Luke Skywalker. If a new Indiana Jones DOES get made, I expect it to have a "strong woman" villain as well as a "strong woman" protagonist that will be putting Doctor Jones out to pasture.
Regardless, the franchise is teetering on getting the same ruinous treatment that Star Wars got over the last few movies.


or I could be wrong
