Petition to David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, The Walt Disney Company

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, make your new Star Wars movies based in the Old Republic!

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, just hear me out. I know you're focusing on the final season of Game of Thrones right now, so you probably haven't yet committed to any kind of storyline for your announced Star Wars movie series. You've said that you're "a little terrified of the responsibility," this is a good thing, it shows you care. I admit, the fandom can be very vocal, but you don't need to be scared; I promise, just give them what they want and they'll love you for it. Here is the era that people want your storyline to be set in: The Old Republic. If you've never played the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video games, take some time out of your busy schedules and remedy that. The Old Republic is the perfect setting for the new series; it's the wild west of Star Wars. In the games, you're thrown into an era of the galaxy that is best described as unrefined and even primal in some ways. Instead of galactic superpowers like the Senate, Separatists, Empire, and First Order, you're placed in a galaxy of gangsters and planetary leaders trying to crawl to the top. The galaxy at that time is riddled with truly evil deeds being committed just to get a few extra credits. I've seen Game of Thrones, I absolutely LOVE what you've done and the story you've created. Let's face it, you guys are good at evil characters; you know how to pull at our heartstrings with the death of a main character or the successes of an evil leader. The Old Republic is set before the Rule of Two, there were hundreds of Jedi and Sith fighting in epic, massive lightsaber battles all over the galaxy. We've already experienced the two secretive dark overlords pulling strings in their galactic superpowers, we want to see something new. I want to see the Battle of the Bastards of Star Wars, massive Jedi and Sith fights; I want to see the main characters struggle through the corrupt, gritty worlds of the Old Republic; I want to see death and sorrow, to see the sacrifice that had to happen to be able to get to the point of Luke and Darth Vader; I want to feel for the characters' losses. You know what my favorite movies of the franchise have been? Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, Episode 6: Return of the Jedi, and Rogue One (yeah, a prequil and Rogue One, fight me). All of them have are dark, all of them have meaningful sacrifice in them that make them worthy to be rewatched over and over. We need to see this side of the galaxy more. I know this is pushing it, but I want to see a Rated R Star Wars movie (I understand if you can't do that though). The Old Republic notoriously had villains that used slaves, torture, and huge massacres of innocents to get what they wanted. Star Wars is known for its classic motif of good versus evil, the light versus the dark, but there is so much more than that; there is the grey, the morally ambiguous, the selfish. That leads to mistakes made the characters, the accidental deaths they cause, lessons they have to learn, this is what makes good storytelling. This is what made Game of Thrones so freaking amazing. You never really knew who to root for because everyone had personal goals and legitimate reasons for their actions. This is where your geniuses lie, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, you know how to tell the stories of complex characters. So, I beg of you, bring that genius to the stories that we, the fans, want to have told. The Old Republic was removed from canon when Disney bought Lucas Arts, which allows you great freedom with the era, but backbone, the structure, the intrigue is all there. The fan base loved the games, loved Revan's story, and wants to see more of it (Petition: "Bring the Old Republic era of Star Wars to Netflix" https://www.change.org/p/the-walt-disney-company-bringing-the-old-republic-era-of-star-wars-to-netflix that has over 220,000 signatures). It's basically an entire galaxy of stories ripe for the picking; you can tell the story of a Jedi in the war, a fallen Jedi, or some gangster that gets wrapped up in the war by accident; I don't know, you guys are the storytellers. Please, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, at least consider it. Play the games, watch the cinematics, and if you still think there's a better time period for your story, I'll trust your creative judgment and will wait with impatience for the movie's release. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Benioff and Weiss shouldn't begin writing until after Season 8 of Game of Thrones is completed, so if you believe as I do that a series of Old Republic movies would be dope, please sign and share this petition. This could be a real possibility for the movie.

Petition to Electronic Arts, EA Polska

Change of polish voice actor for Obi-Wan in Star Wars Battlefront II to Jarosław Domin

Polski: Petycja jest inspirowana ogłoszeniem zmiany aktora podkładającego głos pod Obi-Wana w niemieckiej wersji gry Star Wars Battlefront II. Celem petycji jest zmiana aktora dubbingującego postać Obi-Wana Kenobiego w polskiej wersji gry na Jarosława Domina.Obecnie ta rola przypada Wojciechowi Żołąkowiczowi, który nigdy wcześniej nie podkładał głosu pod wspomnianą postać.Jarosław Domin podkładał głos pod Obi-Wana w prequelach Gwiezdnych Wojen, serialach Wojny Klonów (w wersji 2D i 3D), Rebeliantach oraz wielu innych. Jest on ulubieńcem polskich fanów w dubbingowaniu Kenobiego. Postacie takie jak Hrabia Dooku, Generał Grievous czy Anakin Skywalker mają swój oryginalny polski głos, więc czemu Obi-Wan nie? To przedsięwzięcie zadowoliłoby całą polską społeczność Star Wars Battlefront, która nie może zmienić języka gry. Jeśli jesteśmy ograniczeni wyłącznie do polskiego dubbingu, niech on będzie prawidłowo wykonany - poprzez zatrudnienie aktorów do których przyzwyczaiła nas wieloletnia przygoda w świecie Star Wars. English: Petition is inspired by recent change Obi-Wan voice actor in german version of Star Wars Battlefront II. Purpose of this petition is to change Obi-Wan Kenobi voice actor to Jarosław Domin.Currently this role has Wojciech Żołądkowicz who never before voiced Kenobi.Jarosław Domin voiced Obi-Wan in Star Wars prequels, TV shows like The Clone Wars (2D and 3D) and Star Wars Rebels and many more. He is the fan favourite in polish fandom for Obi-Wan Kenobi dubbing. Characters like Count Dooku, General Grievous and Anakin Skywalker have their original polish voice actors, so why Obi-Wan doesn't?  This action would please whole polish Star Wars Battlefront community, which can't change in game language. If we are restricted only to polish dubbing, then lets make it the most proper way - by hiring voice actors that we are used to listen alongside our whole Star Wars journey.

Revitalize the MMORPG Star Wars The Old Republic, by increasing its funding and resources.

Star Wars The Old Republic is currently the only story-driven MMORPG out there that is set in the Star Wars universe. It has great and amazing stories, having created a setting and lore that keep players captivated and awed. Yet with the current lack of funding and resources it is a mere shadow of what it could be. Star Wars The Old Republic (SWTOR) needs to go through a revitalization, as currently it is wasted potential for the companies owning it as well as the current playerbase. With increased funding and more manpower, the MMO could come to rival Elder Scrolls Online, Guild Wars 2 and World of Warcraft. Why? Because of the franchise the game is part of, namely Star Wars. There are so many people out there who want to play a Jedi or Sith, who want to be a Han Solo-like Smuggler or Boba Fett-inspired Bounty Hunter. Star Wars The Old Republic offers that already, it just needs the right boost to become competitive again in the world of MMO's. It already has an epic and engaging story that offers the player endless possibilities which amazing voiced dialogues and epic cutscenes, it just needs that extra help to surpass itself. But most importantly, Star Wars The Old Republic is set in the Old Republic era, a part of the Star Wars mythos and lore that people want to see introduced into the new canon. One example of generating awareness, could be by including the MMO and its stories into the new canon (but this is not a necessity, merely a possibility). That way, Disney could grant fans their wish of seeing more of that era and pull in a lot of new players. That said, it is also perfectly acceptable for Disney to continue generating content for SWTOR while it's part of Legends. It is why we, the players of SWTOR, implore EA to work with Disney to increase the funding and resources for this MMO. The potential for a great and competitive MMO is there, it just needs that extra care and attention in the form of funding, resources and manpower. NOTE: I am not asking for donations or money nor will I ever do so. If you get an option to make a donation after signing, that is an automatic part of change.org. This has NOT been initiated by me. Supposedly, if you pay X amount of money the site will show it to Y amount of people more. However, I am not asking you to do this, I am not asking anyone to make donations.

Disney, give Star Wars Theory at least fifty percent of the money made via the fan film.

While Star Wars is a property of Disney it was Star Wars Theory who paid the price of the fan film and wrote the storyline for said film.  It was Star Wars Theory who worked tirelessly on this film and spent his own hard earned money on this whilst you restricted him from doing any crowd funding only to swoop right in and claim the video to make a few extra dollars when you already make billions a year.  We the fans demand that Disney either give Star Wars Theory fifty percent of the money made from the ads on the YouTube Video titled "VADER EPISODE 1: SHARDS OF THE PAST - A STAR WARS THEORY FAN-FILM" since this film while admittedly using content that you own was literally the result of his creativity and love for Star Wars.  Either that or hire this man so he can direct a Vader Origin movie based off of his ideas so we the fans can get the content that we want and deserve as a fan base.  What you have just done shows that you truly care little about the fan base of Star Wars and only about how much you can milk this once grand franchise until it is completely unmarketable.  You want to make money off of Star Wars? Take pointers from guys like Star Wars Theory and either hire the man or give him fifty percent of the money made off of the ads as stated above and prove us all wrong.  SWT was a positive voice for you guys online, and tried to keep the peace and support your movies and you throw it back in his face. Shame on you Disney.  Make it right.
