    That is why I laugh when people say that the orig trig was a plan. It wasn't a huge plan. They winged it. They just made an amazing second movie.

    Edit: The problem with Snoke was he was a mystery to the audience, however, to all of the characters in the story, he was known. No one wondered where he came from, who exactly he was, or anything. To have a big reveal about who Snoke is, would be stupid because everyone who would be there for this reveal would be like, "I know. Duh"

    OR they would have to create a part of the movie just for him and his reveal, which would have added nothing to the narrative.

    Who?

    The only thing I can think of is if she is a secret child of Mara Jade. How do you not ruin those connected people?

    I think that its going to be huge. All signs point to this being the end of the story for most of the characters involved.

    I showed the poster to my 7 year old daughter and it blew her mind. She yelled: whoa the Knights of Ren!

    I wonder why C3PO is holding Chewie's bowcaster and I wonder why is there a mighty morphing power ranger look alike in there?

    I'm ready!

    Also, Disney CEO Bob Iger says that this will be the last Star Wars movie for a while. How long that will be is unknown, although there are several in development, so likely only a couple of years.

    **** me can't wait.

    The name of the film is interesting, and about the one thing that gives me pause - I really hope they don't retcon the whole thing to be "Lol yeah Rey is totally Luke's kid" or whatever. Heard some theories of "Skywalker" being titular, or basically the new "Jedi" which I find interesting considering the last film was The Last Jedi - Luke's passing ending the Jedi but beginning the Skywalkers, fitting.

    The music of Star Wars man, that just puts one in the mood immediately, love it. Lando laughing at the helm of Falcon, yes please. Death Star debris, sign me up. The Emperor? WTF!?!?! I'm in. Rey and Kylo doing some weird fight/training on a desert planet? Yas! Give it to me!

    My quick theory - somehow the Emperor survived RotJ, was responsible for the rise of the first order, Snoke and Kylo's betrayal. Rey stumbles upon/realizes this, presents to Ben who switches sides to put an end to Palpatine for good, forming the Skywalkers with Rey (with one of them dying). I could of course be entirely wrong, perhaps the Palpatine laugh was for dramatic effect more than an inkling of a role for him, but it still sounds good in my head for now.

    For real though, everything points heavily to them in a relationship. Even after the ending of TLJ where Kylo takes on Luke and tries to destroy the rebels. It's just the Star Wars thing to do, and I won't be disappointed if they do go that route. Then again, maybe they do defy expectations and he really is the big bad.

    I hope they undo everything from Last Jedi.

    Rian Johnson just straight up pisses me off. I am all for people putting their own spin on a story, but he had utter contempt for entire story leading up to Last Jedi so he did everything he could to minimize everything 7 movies were building towards. The real heinous part is that the studio let him have his own trilogy, so that is where he should tell the non-skywalker story he wanted to tell.

    Arrogant piece of crap hack, up there with Zach Synder.

    Well, given that Johnson has said that he's ok with his movie being retconned by this one, I'd say they're likely going to fix a few things. I have a lot more faith in Abrams. Hopefully, the series ends with most people happy with how it turned out.

    https://geektyrant.com/news/jj-abra...the-story-for-star-wars-the-rise-of-skywalker

    Also, Abrams met with Lucas before working on Ep 9 and the two of them talked out how to finish the series. Hopefully, cooler and smarter heads prevailed, and everyone puts their own egos and agendas away to make what people will enjoy.

    Here's hoping.

    Like I generally don't care if you change things that aren't integral to the essence of the story, like race or gender or changing time periods, etc. But the current Star Wars stuff is the story of the Skywalkers. If you don't like the Skywalker story, don't contribute to it. It is like Snyder with Batman. Batman doesn't kill. You don't get to change that just because you want grittier material. Go make a Punisher movie, or you know.....The Watchmen!!

    Grrrrrrrrr...

    <deep breath>

    Ok, rant over. Back to your regularly scheduled thread.....

    After Skywalker, the next Star Wars movie won't be in theatres for three years. Starting in 2021, Disney will alternate Avatar and Star Wars movies in mid december every year for a while.

    Well, whether its good or terrible, at least it won't have anything to do with the established canon.

    setting it during the Old Republic would be great and hopefully create a new cinematic chapter they can keep building on. Plus, I wouldn't mind the possibility of Darth Malak or Revan if they ever went down that path. Throw in a little Korriban.

    It looks like those specific Star Wars movies won't be. However, there's news this morning that they're developing at least one other movie that is in fact set during the Old Republic.

    Series are almost as good as feature films, plus they can do 3 to 6 hour stories better.

    I would rather have a series of Obi Wan.

    I still want a Quinlan Vos trilogy.

    I believe that Disney can do well by it. As you said, there are really good series that are as good as a well done movie. But of course there are cases where its not up to par as well. Fingers crossed, because I've been hoping for this for a while.

    It really does. After all these years, we're finally getting a proper Star Wars show, and it looks as good as the movies. Too bad that there are only 8 episodes, but hopefully there could be more seasons.

    Speaking of Obi-wan, Phil Szostak, who was involved in the creation of the original movies, has been dropping Star Wars "myth busters" recently. In his newest one, he reveals that when Obi-wan told Luke that Vader killed his father in A New Hope, he was telling the truth. In fact, Lucas didn't come up with the plot twist that Vader was Luke's father until the second draft of Empire. It was then retconned that Obi-wan told Luke a white lie to protect his feelings.

    One of my favourite criticisms of the past Jedi is that it wasn't planned like the orig trig.
    When GL did barely any planning and many decisions were made due to budget cuts, including Leia being Luke's sister.

    Just visited Galaxy's Edge today at Hollywood Studios at the Magic Kingdom.

    Sooooooooooooo eeeeeffffffffiiiinnnnggggggggggg cool.

    The Millennium Flacon ride is the truth. I didn't build a droid or lightsaber yet, but those will come with subsequent trips as I'm a pass holder.

    The thing that was the coolest, was all the dads from my generation taking their kids who were the ages we were when all this started, and being more excited than the kids.

    I mean for crying out loud, Chewbacca was walking around under the Falcon.

    Great day.

    There will be two rides by then in the area (not including Star Tours which is in another part of that park).
    - Smuggler's Run: Millennium Falcon ride. 6 people get in a replica of the cockpit and fly, shoot and repair the ship as you go thru the run. It its a motion simulator, but you totally feel like you're on the Falcon. There's 2 pilots, 2 gunners and 2 engineers. You each have jobs and are scored on well you did.
    - Rise of the Resistance: No idea. Opens in December

    Then you can build your own droid: $100 gets you a remote controlled R2 or BB8 droid that you can build with different colors and parts. It has personality chips and reacts to other droids and stuff in the Galaxy's Edge area.

    Then you can build your own lightsaber: That's $200. Its a whole ceremony. You get to choose the parts and color of your lightsaber. It looks to be an actual combat ready one. The inner workings of the hilt are high density plastic, but the outer custom parts are all machined metal. The coolest part is that there's sounds when turned on and the light grows from the hilt instead of just flicking on.

    Immersion is the goal. All shops, kiosks and stores, etc. Call money..credits. They call you traveler. All the food is normal stuff but is called and made to look different and alien. Storm troopers patrol and give you grief.

    Disney is always great at details but they took it to another level with this.

    Whenever we go, we'll likely go really light on the souvineers. My wife is extremely.....budget conscious :whistling:. We sometimes spend on experiences and activities, but just take lots of pics while we're there.
