Explained Glup Shitto, the best Star Wars character (deceptive)

Wat Tambor. Wullf Yularen. Plo Koon. Here are some of the Star Wars guys I know. I actually know a lot of Star Wars guys, which is why it surprised me that I never heard of the Shitto Glup. And yet it ‘s a name I’ve kept seeing online for the past couple of months, in social media hands and conversations of Am Mandalorian. I have now learned all there is to know about Glup Shitto.

Like all the best in Star Wars, Glup Shitto is not canonical. It came from the mind of a Tumblr user gomjabbar on September 3, 2020, in the following post:

every time a new Star War film or show is announced all the fans are like “OMG Glup Shitto is back”

Since the post first appeared, Star Wars has had several Shitto Glup times as a franchise. The meme has gone off accordingly. Finally, people like me watched it all Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels cartoons of their day can be in the sun, with characters from these shows and other Star Wars spinoff buildings featured Am Mandalorian and in upcoming Disney slate shows of Star Wars.

It used to be that I would just give people a corner at parties (remember those?) And give them a talk about Grand Admiral Thrawn, getting a little more of a view with glass eyes and an empty promise that my conversation partner would take a look at it Clone Wars “Once upon a time.” But now, if I do this, I might even gain recognition in the eyes of anyone who may be unfortunate in having a Zoom call with me through this thoughtful talk of Star Wars.

No one ever really wanting for study Clone Wars. I mean, I wasn’t either, at first. It starts slow and keeps slow for a long time. There are several online lists of the best times, but they are all contradictory, as they contain relevant and emotionally relevant tidbits. all of the times, covered in a wash of perforated material whose foundation was not found until it enters season 2 (or later, depending on who you ask). Star Wars Rebels packing is better from the jump, but your favorite times won’t come if you haven’t watched Clone Wars. It’s hard to convince your average adult Star Wars fan that the best Star Wars stuff is buried in a show based on the prequels, everything, and at its skews are a very young target demographic, even by Star Wars standards. It also moves so slowly that I don’t even think Child Me would have had the patience for it. Only the strongest Star Wars fan would bother.

These are the weird corners of Star Wars that I’ve kept in this post-Eirich de Skywalker world. I expect mainstream Star Wars to let me down, these days, by simplifying the series of the most complex and intricate aspects into something safer and, interestingly. , sorry. At the same time, the books, cartoons, comics, cartoons, and video games can delve into more sophisticated, addictive material – as well as themes and ideas that challenge the Star Wars status quo. These fringe buildings look a bit more lofty on the roof, and that’s where the good stuff – the Glup Shitto of it all – can get through.

Glup Shitto is mostly just a fun joke about how Star Wars names sound like garbled daisies. But for me, at least, it’s a reflection of how strange a particular segment of Star Wars fans are, against a franchise that has been badly beaten or lost for the past two decades. The crying emojis in the original post are really great. Glup Shitto is back. Star Wars is good again, but only in a unique and obscure way, one you have to dig into to get out and really understand.

I’m not a Star Wars fan. Not anymore. I’m just here for Glup Shitto.
