Thread: Mara Jade Disney plus

  1. #11
    This doesn't excite me in the least. For me, she's just a bit too 90's comic booky and doesn't age well because of that.

    the MCU has been making radical changes to iconic characters, and nobody seems to mind. how is this any different?
    Largely because I suspect that most people don't even know about them, they just assume that's how it is. 50% of the audience are likely new kids who just hopped on the wagon over the excitement generated. The other 50% who are CB fans and know about the changes are probably not happy with hem. But on the other foot, it's not a deal breaker. Also, Comics are a very different beast, they've had so many versions and alternate story lines over the years.



    But Star Wars hasn't really went through that, and possibly 90% of the audience are completely unaware of the old EU. I feel the major point is, if you're not going to adhere to the characters origins. Why bother using said character? Just invent someone new. Especially since the people who actually know who she is, will know the name. But be totally sideswiped when they see it. Kind of like some Han Solo elements. I think it's best to just avoid the character rather than further driving a wedge. As a fan of the old Mara, i would be very displeased if they ruined the character same way they did with Luke...
    Looking for:R3-H17, L3-37

    Difference #1- Mara Jade is probably the biggest fan favorite character from the EU... you could argue a few others, but she's certainly top 5.
    Difference #2- MJ in MCU Spider-Man is not Mary Jane Watson. It's an 'homage' to that character according to Feige. The probably should have just used another name, but somehow Peter saying MJ just seems right to me... even if this is a new character. Zendaya made a good character out of very little.
    Difference #3- No one knew who Ned Leeds was anyway. Yes he has a story in the comics (that I don't want to spoil) but this character is really an amalgam of Ned Leeds and Genke Lee from the Miles Morales timeline.

    I think people have been able to shrug off changes to characters like this because they aren't REALLY the character from the comics and in that way aren't really changing much. Mara Jade is a different story. She has been wiped from Star Wars and bringing her back to 'not really Mara Jade' would probably be more of a backhand to already angry nerds. Present company included.

    It's interesting that there's no room in your equation for fans who are aware of the changes and just aren't bothered by them. Apparently they must fall into one of two categories.

    This is a really good point. She's basically been wiped away and to bring her back the wrong way would probably do more damage.

    They could make her an agent of the emperor and have the show run parallel to the OT and just never go beyond ROTJ or end it just after ROTJ. However, why not just make a completely new character and avoid the whole mess in the first place?

    Oh I am definitely taking this one with a grain of salt, but there are rumors that they could introduce her in the Boba Fett show ... I mean the Mandalorian.

    Also Disney/Marvel seems to be announcing so much I wouldn't be surprised if the the facilities crew that died in the Thanos attack on Avengers Headquarters got their own spin off show.
