For those of you who still care about Star Wars. The latest movie poster was recently leaked for Episode IX which is due for release in the latter half of this year. Along with it an image depicting some of the new attires for the main heroes.

It makes me wonder, though, when the trailer is going to be released and if we're going to get a sub-title soon.

I am sort of digging the new attire for Rey. It sort of reminds me of farmboy Luke mixed in with Padmé's armband from her Geonosis get-up.

It just looks so generic that it's hard to feel any interest based of this alone. Like yeah, there's the Star Wars stuff I recognize.

I mean there's a new dumb looking CGI alien and I guess C3PO will hold a bowcaster for a few seconds for a big comedy moment but otherwise it looks like a retread of the other movies.

Hopefully the trailer is more interesting.

The chase dynamic of The Last Jedi was interesting. It was like reliving Battlestar Galactica. The whole fallen hero thing was intriguing as well and that standoff between him and his family member was a pretty memorable moment in Star Wars. I am beginning to think there were more memorable movies from the "worst one" than there was from The Force Awakens.

Poor Finn is always flanked by disaster. The fish man looks like mutated Stuey from the end of Freaked and Battle Gear C-3P0™ looks like an accidental mash-up of Threepio and Chewbacca.

Also Rey lookslike brunette She-Ra who misplaced her crown and BB-8 should get that growth checked out.

Han Solo could already warp in close to a planet, they make bombs that warp in really close to ships. Sure they don't seem really tech savvy in Star Wars and it seems like it was all a guess when to jump in/out of hyperspace but some bombs would at least make it.

Why would they start a civil war when Kylo Ren is now the Supreme Leader in charge of the entire First Order which, if I am not mistaken, controls almost the entire galaxy now. I do hope we see some familiar planets in this movie just so it could feel like a Star Wars film since everything is new.

The way I understand it, the First Order is simply the biggest dog in town now they decapitated the New Republic, which I suppose was composed out of Old Republic remnants and Imperial defectors.

Now that the First Order has blown up the New Republic and has almost wiped out the Rebels, there are only small isolated groups that stand in their way.

The anti-First-Order forces are still bigger than the First Order, but they're not united. Also, there are fuckloads of Imperials that fled away from the galaxy, and those lads could technically still come back.

Whatever happens, Disney isn't going to finish it all up in the next film.

This. And even if they do, there is no way in hell that it'll be an ending so satisfying, so necessary, so conclusive, so definitive, that it will make this exercise in erasing the proper end of the Skywalker story and the story of the Galactic Civil War as we knew it worthwhile.

And this is from a guy who liked TFA and TLJ. They're fine entertainment, with some genuinely great moments, but as a continuation of Star Wars they haven't justified their existence and trying to do it now will wind up like waiting till the last minute to finalize Brexit.

It's a shame that Star Wars has always been that retarded kid that can't function without a toy gun in their hands, because as franchises like B5, BSG and ST show, you can do some great shit with the genre when you just leave the "aliens n big laser 'splosions" scifi ghetto.

You're just saying it's trash because you're one of those adults who still think anything new that is related to your childhood is going to be the same when it's obviously going to be made to attract newer audiences. If you're an adult who continues to watch Star Wars as a means of reconnecting with your youth and who acknowledges that it's going to be different because the writers and producers want to attract a modern audience then that's comletely fine. But when you're bitching about it being different because hurr the originals then you're rworded. This is the same shit that went down with the prequels and now people are calling those films golden. Enough so that Anakin Skywalker's rotting burning body is going to make a cameo appearence in Episode IX.

You are likely one of those people who say nobody is going to remember Rey or Kylo Ren. Yet I see many little girls out there wearing Rey shirts or little boys wearing Kylo Ren shirts. Clearly these films still reached the younger demographics and that means when they grow up to be cynical adults they are going to whine and bitch about how the latest trilogy isn't like Episodes VII, VIII, or IX. Star Wars has the most enthusiastic horrid fanbase. They're not as bad as Sonic fans or other obnoxious fandoms, but they're entitled whiny brats who border along the line of being toxic. Of course, you'll likely be one of those people who look back in hindsight and then say these films are kino. Basically fuck off with this bullshit. It's old and unamusing.

You know the reason for why he does that was addressed in the movie. He came to a realization that the Jedi needed to end. I'm sure upon such revelation he could have found himself with some anger which lead to resentment of who he was and what the Jedi represent. It's not like anger and the dark side aren't steeped into the Skywalker blood line. Luke clearly was angry when Vader started talking about his sister when he confronted him in VI. Though now Luke is the only one who didn't completely turn to the dark side.

Hey, at least Sonic fans are amusingly cringey. There's a certain endearing earnestness that comes from their juvenile art and weird sexual pathologies, and from knowing that a lot of them are just odd teenagers working some shit out.

Star Wars fans don't even have the bizarre childlike novelty that Sonic fans do, their fandom is just humorless toxic garbage from old men who should know better.

Absolutely. There's so much fantastic source material out there, but Hollywood just keeps scraping the same barrels until they manage to dig into the earth and hit the septic bed.

There are some good ones still coming out, Arrival and Ex Machina were great (haven't seen Annihilation yet). I think in the long term though the movie theatre experiences is just going to get dumber and dumber until it collapses under it's own weight.

Annihilation is really good. It's structured a bit weird though - not bad weird, mind you.

It's a scifi-horror film about scientists surviving and researching a hostile alien ecosystem yes, but the story is pretty much a drama about, I quote "depression, grief and the human propensity for self-destruction". But underneath all that, there's a strong additional horror layer of implied cosmic horror.

Fucking funny though, he was playing in Star Wars The Last Jedi and Annihilation at the same time since they were both being filmed in the UK.

Also, Annihilation is actually a great example of how (scifi) films aren't as clear-cut as you view them. Annihilation didn't do very well in American cinemas (perhaps because Americans don't like dem thinky-thinky scifi films or because the studio self-sabotaged it), but it did well in the rest of the Western world. It also did very well on Netflix. I mean, it's one of their major attractions. I joined Netflix, and Annihilation was one of the first films that got suggested to me.

I said the original was meh but you're speaking like I'm a megafan who is scared of change. I just don't like it, it's a very generic "epic" and the characters are boring and not compelling. At least the original had some pretty good stories that hooked people. I was never hooked though. I really only watched them about 5 years ago for real. Watched 4, 5 and 6 back to back and was really put off by the way the tone would jump around. One movie would end on a really dark note then the next would start on a fart joke. And the writing isn't very good, it often feels like some low tier straight to tv movie shit. I feel like in 99/100 alternate dimensions, Star Wars is not a mega franchise but just some campy trash sci fi movie with a cult following.

A bigger 180 than when Anakin became a genociding death knight loyal servant of an evil wizard, for no other reason then because he had a bad dream?

Or when Anakin did another 180 and murdered that same evil wizard because he hurt someone that he himself had been perfectly happy to mutilate the previous movie?

First of all the dark side is like the ring in Lord of The Rings. Its always whispering in your ear, tempting you to "put it on", and takes a lifetime of training of self-restraint, rigorous mental discipline, and emotional detachment to resist it. Every day in a Jedi's life is a constant struggle to resist being "seduced" by the dark side, as Obi-Wan put it in A New Hope. You don't understand these movies, it was a lot more than "one bad dream".

Also Vader was Palpatine's slave, he wanted to kill him since day 1 of being in the suit, it makes sense to throw him down a reactor shaft. He just had so much control over his mind that it was hard to do, hence the "You do not know the power of the dark side. I MUST obey my master" line in ROTJ. He needed Luke's love to overcome The Emperor's dark chains of eternal servitude. The Emperor delighted in causing Vader as much pain as possible, he was 100% pure evil. Of course he would murder him. How is that a 180?

The Jedi were holding Anakin back from his true power, told him his mom had to remain a slave just because of their shitty rule that Jedi can't have relationships, and he was more emotional than other Jedi because of being accepted into the order at a late age. And he wasn't the most stable human to start with. Obi-Wan failed to be a good father figure for him, where as Palpatine was and was manipulating him from day one, telling him he was destined to be the most powerful Jedi ever and that the council fears his power. It made sense to side with him, he didn't know The Emperor would betray him to take pleasure in his torment.

You don't get these movies. And neither does Disney.

GURL POWER YAY! Like how Rey knows more about how the Millennium Falcon works than Han does despite her never being on it before and him owning it for over 40 years.

Black and female storm troopers. George Lucas said he intentionally made everyone in the empire a white male to make them more scary. And it worked, the empire was scary because of that. But Disney says fuck the background elements of the plot, we need to expand our audience.

None of the things you listed there relates to social justice warriors. The closest thing there was the "GIRL POWER YAY!" but that existed long before anything related to SJWs started up.

They are also explainable within universe as well.

> Rey knows more about how the Millennium Falcon works.

Hit and miss. The canon explanation is that she is some nerd who learned about ships through a simulator that she savaged among the dunes of Jakku.

> her never being on it before

She likely figured it out because of those past experiences though this is likely the one of the only things you could complain about.

> him [Han] owning it for over 40 years.

C'mon, Star Wars boy, you should know this one. Han wasn't in possession of the falcon for forty years. The two of them separated in Return of the Jedi when Lando Calrissian took it to fight in the Battle of Endor against the Death Star. It's clearly obvious that this time Lando never returned it to Han and either sold it to another owner or lost it somehow leading to the owner during Episode VII being someone from Jakku. Oh and by the way, Millennium Falcon wasn't the only Corellian YT-1300 light freighter in existence. You can also see one in the background during a scene in Episode III. This also makes it more likely for a schematic to be within that simulator Rey found for that canonical explanation.

> And how she's a master of the Jedi Mind Trick a few hours after even learning the force even exists,
The Jedi Mind Trick seems like basic level shit so I'm not sure why you think it's some advanced technique and Rey wasn't going to discover the force's existence in the second movie. This can also be said for Luke who likely learned about the force's existence even quicker in A New Hope than Rey in The Force Awakens. Also, you're comparing two different people like they're supposed to be the same entity. You know everybody masters a skill differently and we don't all go at the same pace.

> Its all a ploy to sell toys to little girls
I take back what I said earlier. This is the most accurate thing you've said here.

> even though in the past Star Wars was always kind of a boys club with the occasional cool chick here and there.
This sentence makes it seem like you're crying because you don't have that boys only club anymore since girls invaded your space. I get the sense that you never really cared about Princess Leia Organa or Padmé Amidala until now since you're also admitting there were "occasional cool chicks" in the franchise. Well, Star Wars is now being made for a more general audience, so I suppose you can keep crying.

> They're fucking the old audience to try and make a new one.
The old audience who endorsed bullshit expanded universe shit like bunny rabbits or lightsaber knees, right? The kind of neckbearded folk who alienate themselves into thinking Star Wars is some kind of religion so they could have an excuse in not socializing? Good riddance, let them cry.

> Black and female storm troopers.
Why would a military operation limit their solider count by only allowing in one specific demographic? And the stormtroopers in the original trilogy all wore masks because it's an old writing technique to where they don't have to worry about people sympathizing with them. They all end up emotionless robots in the eyes of the audience.

> George Lucas said he intentionally made everyone in the empire a white male to make them more scary.
Citation needed.

> And it worked, the empire was scary because of that.
You're scared of the Galactic Empire because they were white males? lol Not because they were an authoritarian society that decided that all forms of democracy was pointless and decided to be ruled by an all-powerful Emperor who decides what is best for everybody? Or even the fact that they have been known to enslave entire races or planets? Okay, you're just afraid of white men apparently.

I am starting to get the impression that you're just mad that there are girls in the franchise because of the logic, "girls are icky" and desire a "no girls allowed" fort that you would have constructed out of mattresses and blankets as a child. I've seen your kind before. Searching for any excuse you could make to get passed your fairly obvious misogyny (uh oh, trigger warning!) then get uber-mad (uh oh, another trigger warning!) whenever someone calls you out on it. Yeah, well, mate, you are coming off as misogynistic when you start a post off with "GURL POWER YAY!" and end it with "Makes me sick." You don't have to read much further into that one to know you might have kind of a big issue with more girls in one of your "boys only" fan clubs. So just to trigger you further, misogyny misogyny misogyny misogynist misogyny. I hope you have a good day.

As a lefty I don't like how the new movies have actually lost alot of their political edge. The Empire was not just a stand in for Nazi Germany but also for Nixon's America at the time, with George Lucas, who was fully against not just the wars in Southeast Asia but American imperialism in general, intentionally basing the Rebels on the Vietcong, with the movies being about, in his words, “A large technological empire going after a small group of freedom fighters". Even the prequels were explicitly about the descent of a decadent republic into full on fascist imperialism.

The new movies pretty much gloss over all of that except for a few surface level nods here and there.

I think it's pretty clear that this guy doesn't actually like Star Wars so much as he likes the idea of being a Star Wars fan.

Supposedly he doesn't like cynical commercialization, Mary Sues, overly convenient plot contrivances, liberal politics, strong female characters, heel/face turns, or the idea of challenging patriarchal authority figures from the previous generation. Things that, for better or worse, have always been defining hallmarks of the Star Wars series. Plus he keeps forgetting basic facts about the movies and keeps getting plot details wrong.

But... Star Wars is also an established universal normie symbol for Nerd Culture™. It's been accepted by neckbeard gatekeepers as an approved franchise to base your "real" not a chick consumer identity around, and he wants the street cred of being an old school nerd. So he's convinced himself that he's the biggest fan of a franchise that frankly seems to represent everything he hates, and always has.

Because, like you say, his generation of nerds still sees Star Wars as a "boys only" treehouse, so pretending he likes this thing he hates gives him an excuse to yell at girls.

I don't really hate SJW shit. I would of had no problem with Rey being black and Finn being white. But Disney probably thinks that would not sell toys/movies as well. I'd still be protesting black storm troopers if I was black.

>Citation needed
Can't remember where I directly heard a Star Wars film maker say George intentionally casted specifically white people as Imperial Officers to make them look more racist/scary, probably a documentary or DVD commentary, but I do have this:

Here George specifically refers to the Imperials as Nazis. Thats the message he was trying to convey, wouldn't really support this stated vision with a black officer. Hell they're even named after Nazi storm troopers.

>Commander Hux gets introduced in a scene taken almost frame-by-frame from Leni Riefenstahl

I fucking hated that scene, Disney always does either WAY too little or WAY too much to sell "Imperials" in George's original vision as Nazis.

And the scene makes zero sense btw, if the good guys could see that visible death-beam of red light from the planet they were on "destroying the Republic(5 planets in a galaxy with 100+ billion stars wtf)", why did they stop on Maz's planet at all? That means it has to be in the same solar system. They could of just took the plans directly to the Republic planet without wasting an extra minute on space travel. Disney simply doesn't care about plot, their whole attitude is:


Another example of Disney not giving a shit about the plot making sense is Poe(not to mention Poe never even met fake Yoda in 7) using the comm device to contact Maz Kanata. They specifically said they had no way of communicating with their "allies" in the outer rim. So why not use that device?

The beam travels faster than light, the light emitted by the beam would not travel faster than the speed of light. It also seems implausible to calculate a direct strike on 5 planets simultaneously from 100K light years away. It was just added for unnecessary cool factor. And why was the entire Republic in one solar system, a galaxy with 100 billion stars.

Just like it was implausible for Han to hyperspace travel in-between a planet and its shields through hyperspace(why not do that for Endor), if he was off by a fraction of a nano second, he'd be dead, and maybe the planet would be destroyed going by TLJ physics invalidating every space battle we've seen so far. You can't suspend your disbelief like you could with the old Star Wars.

The light beam in the sky was gay as hell anyway, just like everything else in 7.

Excuse me? Star Wars has always been fucking hard to suspend my disbelief on. WW2 air combat in space IS RETARDED. Either go for Star Trek's submarine combat with two or more warships duking it out (no fighters allowed), or go (relatively) hard on the scifi scale like B5 did with their deathcube fighters, just a cube with rocket boosters on every edge and weapon systems that can fire from every side.

The premise of Star Wars is already so nonsensical, that critiquing technology etc. is just meaningless because you'll just keep sinking further and further into a pit of nothingness. If you critique Star Wars, do it on characters and whatnot. Not on technology or plot devices, because STAR WARS NEVER MADE SENSE AND STAR WARS WILL NEVER MAKE SENSE.

I've seen enough SpaceBattles forums discussions, and only a literal retard would take Star Wars' technology serious.

Where? The second half of the film?

I can't speak for Last Jedi as I haven't seen it, but in Force Awakens we spend a fair amount of time with Rey before she even gets involved in the story. We got to learn her fears, motivations and hopes. Kind of like Luke in that Star Wars movie that they ripped off.

Not that the character development was stellar in Force Awakens, it wasn't Silence of the Lambs or anything. But for a swash-buckling space adventure it seemed to spend a decent amount of time on it.

I felt that Rogue One was like Prometheus in terms of character development, with a geologist who we know is a geologist because "HE LOVES ROCKS!" I don't know, maybe I'm wrong. Can you give specific examples of character development in Rogue One?

I don't regret watching Rogue One in the cinema, but I couldn't tell you a goddamn thing that happened in that movie, or any character's name or even what the team looked like (I think there was a black dude, an asian dude and the woman). It's literally the most forgetable movie I have ever seen.

I won't disagree that it's pretty forgettable, but it's a well structured movie and it was cool to see a war from that perspective. It felt like a decent sci fi movie, unlike TLJ. It's my favorite of the new movies but I'll say it's probably not as good technically as TFA which was a decent movie and had better characters. Thankfully they're getting JJ back for the next one. I never thought I'd say something like that considering the way he treated Star Trek (though 2009 was actually a damn good movie, all things considered)

Really? I thought the general consensus was that Solo was a pretty by-the-numbers outing that was still fun, if forgettable. Nothing in the movie required outside knowledge of SW to enjoy beyond the most basic understanding of the universe. Come to think of it, I don't think there's a single SW movie solely for the "hardcore" fans; they're tent pole projects that draw in relatively diverse audiences.

No one was really clamoring for Solo, but I found it enjoyable and inoffensive. I agree with >>407235 though that more movies based upon EU stuff would bring out the hardcore fans, but I don't know if that's sustainable in the long run. Also, people will find reasons to complain about anything SW-related these days. Imo its current trajectory isn't perfect but it's not like it was "ruined" or anything

A local art theater is showing all the star wars movies for May 4th.
I asked if they were the originals or the special editions.
I got an e-mail back saying...
>"They are the 1997 re-release versions. LucasFilm does not permit anyone to screen any other version, and in fact does not even acknowledge that other versions exist. "

I really hope that Daisy Ridley returns when she is older to reprise the role of Rey as a force master.

It would be more hilarious if her return is exactly like what they did with Luke Skywalker’s on-screen return.

Not sure how that would work since the Jedi were a thing of the past unless Rey has a hand in their reformation. She wouldn’t have anything to resent.

Luke never resented the force. He resented the Jedi. If anything Luke was answering to the force and how it didn’t belong to either the Jedi or the Sith.

If anything, Rey would probably end up just being a servant of the force.

Competent writing would have Rey re-form the Jedi Order, but as Grey Jedi. Then she could do some psychotherapy shit with Kylo to convert him or steer him away from the Sith.

Ultimately accepting the Force as a whole, and dissolving the binary ideals of Jedi/Sith this way would fulfill Anakin's prophecy and bring balance to the Force. Anakin would have brought balance to the Force by killing off the old Jedi order, dying as the last true Sith, and setting up Luke to establish a non-dualistic order (through Rey) based on compassion, empathy, and forgiveness, instead of either straight up denial of emotions or straight up submission to them. It would also be a satisfying end to the 9-movie long Skywalker story/legacy, and allow for new stories to be told.

We're not going to get that, though. We're going to get the two stupid fucks who ruined GoT, and Disney raking in that mindless pop-culture fan money.

Nah, have her run off with Kylo and get swayed by his sexy angst and go to the dark side, then we do the prequels where the dark side takes over everything with kylo and ren forming the new galactic empire, just do a couple movies of them conquering the shit out of the entire universe with clones and shit. Later on you introduce the good guys, two of whom would of course be Kylo and Rey's son/daughter twins and they bring back balance to the force by killing their parents. It's more progressive to also put women in the evil roles in the movies, not just the hero roles and it's also edgy so with the marketing algorithms that write the scripts these days, you never know.

Yes, in the books, Luke rebuilds the Jedi order based on his own concept of compassion and acceptance. He goes through the galaxy finding broken people and turning them in to good people. He locates holocrons to learn new techniques and get a deeper understanding of the force. Then a Sith force ghost corrupts his best student(this happens with like 4 other students, each one being more best than the last), so he spends a bunch of time hunting her down to see if he can chill her out. He can't, so he hunts more holocrons to figure out how to remove force ghosts from someone's body, only to get possessed by an even worse Sith ghost. Luke goes full Sith mode trying to stop his currently Sith pupil, only to remember that he's a good guy at the last second.

Then the Tyranid fleet from WH40k invades, and they're immune to the force. Everybody dies except for one of Han and Leia's kids, but the invasion is stopped.

There was a lot of stuff in the books. Sideous learned the life-transfer technique from Plageus (as per the prequel movies) and then killed Plageus. He then set up cloning chambers in various places in the galaxy, but ensured his clones had blank minds. It was a gamble on his part because the transfer had only been done live-to-live. When Vader threw him down the exhaust shaft, he died and became a force ghost, but managed to summon enough energy to perform the soul transfer into a clone. The good guys found out, and there was a quest to find all the clone factories so that Sideous couldn't reincarnate continuously.

There was also a THIRD death star. Then the Empire figured out that bigger wasn't better, so they made the Sun Crusher; an X-Wing sized ship which can make stars go supernova and wipe out a whole solar system, instead of just one planet. Some emo kid steals it and starts wiping out imperial systems. Luke finds him, makes him not emo, and throws the ship into a black hole to be destroyed. The kid then goes emo again and goes full Sith; uses the force to pull the ship out of the black hole, and flies around the galaxy listening to Linkin Park while blowing up whatever he feels like.

The Dark Force Rising series by Timothy Zhan is considered as one of the best series; that's the one where Luke becomes a Sith. I believe it starts with Luke fighting some lava worm in a volcano, but it has diamond skin or something, so every time he slashes at it, the lightsaber beam breaks and ricochets around the volcano.

The Bounty Hunter series is really good. It follows Dengar and Boba Fett. Mostly it's just Boba getting revenge or getting paid; Bossk is his mortal enemy, and there's a whole reptilian genocide thing. Boba gets caught in the middle of some Hutt mafia turf war shit. It gets wild. There's an alien that is like a giant brain/mantis; as it eats and lives, it grows, but it can't keep thoughts together well, so it splits off brains and gives them personalities and skills, except they are tethered still by an umbilical cord/nerve cord that shares thoughts and feelings between the brains. A few chapters are about one of the child-brains; it gains full sentience and has ambition, and wants to eat the other brains so it can grow to be the boss brain.

I’m still confused why they haven’t just done Thrawn already. I know they made EU books non-canon at some point, but it seems like a trilogy based around him would translate really well to movies, unlike a bunch of the weirder EU shit, and you’d be salvaging basically the only interesting thing in all of Star Wars that isn’t just more Skywalker lineage or basic hero’s journey rehashes.

The thing about those reflective/diffuse details is that they don't even have to match the scene to be fairly convincing.

Meanwhile if you don't put them in AT ALL.....

But these days you can actually just get some footage from a 360 camera from the set, including lighting changes if you want, and apply it to the rendering environment as a 360 HDR lightmap.

But since sets are usually half open you'd probably want to throw in a rough 3D scene to provide some detail in the half that's just the black soundstage. For extra credit you could rough in some of the actors as long as there's nothing too mirror-finishy.

But as I said it really doesn't need to be very accurate to be very convincing. Rough reflections are EXTREMELY low detail IRL

They made a few quality movies on the side with the scientific magic stuff, that could be considered on level with a Marvel or Star Wars movie. Like the one with Oprah in it, and the other one with Cloony in it, that was amazing, they were going on about subatomic stuff. Ant man in theory is worse. I like the real hard out science magic stuff. But they can't seem to spend more than 100 million these days on a movie unless it has some prestige, hence probably way Lion King and Dumbo.

If Solo is any indication of Disney Lando, I'm not holding out too much hope.

Also, other than Chewbacca and the droids, are there even any non-humans in the rebellion....sorry, RESISTANCE now? For all the pro-diversity speech it really does just seem like a human vs human war in space. What happened to all those races in the prequels? Did the Empire/First Order genocide them all? Is it a 'first they came for the humans and I did nothing because I was not a human' thing, because the whole 'First Order as Nazis' symbolisim has been less that subtle. Are they scared of making another Jar Jar Binks so now the focus is on droids like BB8 and Solo's Fembot (who they'll reference when Lando flies the Falcon again because Solo's movie was so important. I mean, remember the SPACE DICE?)

Other wise Chewbacca would be the one. He was just being subordinate for survival. He has the greatest force power and lived to be a great age. Let the young fleshed ones flight it out. Disney will do a back number on Chewbacca and the whole story will be centered around him.

The Resistance was never the Rebellion until The Last Jedi. They were more or less just a smaller militia that fought proxy wars for the New Republic.

Why else would there be a Resistance AND a New Republic?

The Galactic Civil War didn't have two big political powers battling. It was a bunch of rebels and one Empire that used to be the Republic.

The war here wasn't between the First Order and the New Republic. It was between the First Order and the Resistance.

It's not that hard to discern.

We get it, Kathleen. The sequel trilogy has been a triumph. The scope of the conflict is clearly defined, as are the sides and stakes. The new characters are well developed and iconic in their own right. The old characters and their characterizations have travelled a sensible and clean narrative path, making these movies feel essential and not at all tacked on.

We can make a Star Wars general and The Mandolorian threads eventually but as for The Rise of Skywalker, I'm pretty hyped for it since I like Star Wars and all but I hope that Disney can deliver a conclusive enough ending to the Skywalker Saga. Dunno if it will be more conclusive than say the MCU's Infinity Saga but it certainly will help set the tone for the future of Star Wars if they're going in the direction of making more movies set in different times in the Star Wars Universe especially with the one Rian Johnson is involved with right now. I'd like to see them do one set during the Old Republic long before the prequel trilogy, which would make the most sense to do but who knows.

Fhis could be great, but most likely will be awful. I loved the knights of the old republic 1 and 2 very much, but you know a modern movie is not going to be able to recapture that magic. And Disney...

But I try to have hope. Rise of Skywalker could be good. The trailer filled me with dread as it looks like we could get some bullshit like kylo realizing his mistakes and joining Rey to kill Palpatine, but I hope I'm wrong as that sounds awful. We'll just have to wait and see.

Oh, and he managed to make the first fuckin scene of the movie kill off my interest in the rest of the film due solely to how unbelievable half the shit was.

You know they've got some weird gravity stuff in star wars, right? Hover bikes, space ships with gravity (IN SPACE), etc. It does seem silly that they have to be on these slow ships and directly over the target, but whatever. It's for the effect.

> Leia just magically has the Force in her and cant die?
That, I thought was dumb. Not "magically having the force" (it's all magic, broseph), but just the surviving part. And why'd they have to do Akbar like that

Tom is probably looking for good characters, dialog and story. Those are things one typically doesn't get when the primary focus of the story tellers is to fulfill some agenda.

Pic related, it's a diverse cast and set of characters that wasn't chosen in order to fulfill some sort of agenda, but to tell a compelling story with excellent dialog and characters.

They were fucking garbage. But I don't think anyone is comparing the Disney trilogy to the prequels, people are comparing them to the originals.

No. I mentioned the majority of the opposition being painted as mostly white males like majority if not all the staff working alongside Hux/Kylo and the fact all the ‘good guys’ were practically every demographic today who is bitching about white america and toxic privileged whatevers. I dont give a fuck if they have more white male heroes, they did that in the past already. My point is that because that was done in the past they are now clearly doing the opposite and pandering to the crowd UPSET with patriarchal past episodes and want a female lead and all the racial diversity imaginable.

As Fairness would have it sure that makes a little bit of sense.
Yet, in Your mind, fucking none of that is happening?

People are upset that a franchise they love is being heavy in political stances, and is doing so because its money and was always like that in a Kathleen Kennedy film...

That's not "political propaganda." It's adapting to market demands. It was probably a capitalist decision, and I don't see how it hurt the movie at all. I think there's a lot of flaws in the movie, but the performances were good.

>People are upset that a franchise they love is being heavy in political stances,
Political stances like what? It's still archetypal good vs. evil; scrappy underdogs vs large empire.

I guess the part about arms dealers selling to the empire and the rebels was pretty political. I was surprised to see that in there.

It's a very flawed movie, but I don't see how you can blame the casting Unless you're just upset that you have to watch a black guy in space.

But realistically I just finished reading the Thrawn trilogy (set after original trilogy) and what the fuck Disney. Perfect story, perfect remembrance of the old while bringing in new. The story was already there. Why they didn't just use these books as the basis for this trilogy I'll never understand. This trilogy barely even has a story. Disney sucks.

If not the prequels then dont even bother explaining the possibility, hell no matter the timeline it could even have happened in the Old Republic and STILL would’ve made no sense. Not only would her parents been due a story by now as Palpatine’s descendants but the idea of his mrs. just isn’t a thing. Guy is a decrepit self-loathing predatory supremacist who wouldn’t find love if he wanted to. Shitty times for a Sithlord it would seem, and I am to believe he up and made a family all the while preying on Anakin’s bloodline the whole time!?>>412066

Hey check out these dubs of truth.

It would've been the logical plot twist, being as Star Wars was inceptually inspired by Dune, in which the villain Baron Harkonnen was revealed to have been the father of Duke Leto and thus Paul Atreides' grandfather for the big twist, this would have been a further twist that relied on the series' big plot twist as revealed in Empire, but would have expounded on it where the audience would be in on a bigger secret that was unknown to Vader in his life. If the plot twist here is that Palps is Mary Sue's Gramps then it's just a rather contrived regurgitation of the earlier twist without any progression of the characters, in fact it would seem Palpatine was just wasting time in the OT by obsessing over Skywalker if he wasn't even the guy's progeny

Nah, it's a great source of entertainment. In the first episode a wookiee with a massive erection paid $4,000,000,000 for a faberge egg and spent 90 minutes masturbating to pictures of its childhood.

In episode 2 the wookiee fell head-over-heels down two flights of stairs, smashing the egg and falling head-first into a garbage can. The garbage can then rolled into traffic and got hooked under a sewage truck. It left on a cliff-hanger with the sewage truck heading onto an on ramp onto a major highway.

Pure entertainment!

I thought the last jedi was the most interesting one. All that stuff they were saying about being FOR something rather than simply being against the bad guys. Plus I like how it acknowledges that the jedi order had a major role to play in the empire rising to power, that they had become so caught up in religious ritual and symbolism, that they had lost touch with their spirituality.

Good thing I watched this for free since my friend paid for my ticket because I probably wouldn't have paid full price to go see it otherwise. I enjoyed the film for what it was and I thought that it wrapped up the Skywalker saga in a meaningful and conducive manner I guess so I don't really have too much of an issue with it. Only criticisms I had with it were being a retread of Return of the Jedi especially with the return of Palpatine, which the whole twist of him being Rey's grandfather felt like a twist for the sake of having one and giving Rey some sort of familial connection to the force. I did at least appreciate that Palpatine actually was presented as a threat again as he had been in Revenge of the Sith. I mean there was that speculation that Rey was gonna be Han and Leia's daughter but I guess they decided to have her add Skywalker to keep the name alive without having her being burdened of the obvious brother vs. sister bullshit. Also the moment Kylo and Rey kissed, I was like "the fanboys are gonna fucking hate that" but gotta give Kylo his redemptive moment of sacrifice I suppose.

Also C3PO was one of my favorite parts of the film. God bless Anthony Daniels for being in all 9 films and making that character one of the most iconic robotic characters.

Basically, there is a type of Jedi who believe in using both sides of the force. REY does this in the film, and in the final scene of the movie wields a Golden lightsaber which is the canonized color of a Gray jedi.

Her and Kylo threw both their Lightside saber and Darkside saber away at one point or another in this film. Both of them nearly cast aside their order for the sake of unifying one another, and they binded the force to do so. Both sides as one.

This is the way... of only a Gray jedi.

The link I gave says a recently released and Canonized book ties into the new movie, and in the movie a visual is given of the same place where the Book canonized a character who goes by the name Revan. If true, this could mean they are using Legends lore to some degrees, if not entirely recreating the Old Republic canon.

I haven't seen the movie but "grey jedi" doesn't mean shit. It's only for idiots who have to put things into either a binary or a spectrum. I kind of predict what is going to happen anyone but Rey is just a light-side force user and Kylo is a dark-side force user must like the daughter and the son. Shit, they might just be force-users.

So I've basically just decided that this new trilogy is out of my head canon.

Not only did they ruin the climax of the OT by undoing everything that the Rebel Alliance did, but the logistical and political economy behind the First Order is never explained. It simply regresses to pure fantasy. Then they utterly take the piss in the last movie with the Final Order, which is apparantly an even bigger army that just comes from no where. This makes no sense whatsoever.

Bloodline is superior and I really want to read more of Claudia Grey's stuff.

Aftermath is still decent enough and at least makes sense in the universe. Sinjir was a great character and I liked some of the ideas such as the Alderaan flotilla. My main problem is all the interlude the writer takes, across the galaxy for these one chapter slice of life bits that don't go anywhere. It's almost as if he knew he was writing canon so decided to put his finger in so many pies

Also, I'm actually starting to appreciate Last Jedi more now that I've seen Skywalker. Not saying it was great, but at least Johnson tried to do something a bit different. Abrams just screwed it from the start.

Prequels get way too much hate.

I loved the original trilogy as a kid, prequels came out and I saw them at the theatre and loved them. Bought episode 1 on DVD and watched it 100 times. I love jar jar I don't get what the big issue is with silliness.

They explained the story of Anakins growing up and how he turned bad, they had a bunch of memorable scenes and characters, and the acting was great (pulling off bad lines isn't easy). They were not as good as the originals, but were enjoyable and added to the series.

The new trilogy is just bad, more annoying than entertaining and has been progressively destroying the story/universe. Disney saying legends no longer exists and then stealing the bits of the stories they like to massacre is a huge fuck you to the fan base and creators of EU.

Not nearly as bad as the hate machine says. The fifth best Star Wars film tbh. The only thing that really annoyed me was Rey-us ex machina. The writers shouldve let her turn evil halfway through and had the climax be Kylo Ren defeating her. That way her inexplicable Mary Sue powers would create tension rather than be lazy writing.

Luke had to train his ass off to barely move an X-wing. Rey-us ex machina not only pulled a larger ship with a fraction of the training, she was simultaneously fighting a Sith while doing so. Luke was never able to bring people back from the dead. After Rey effortlessly kills the evil male antagonist, she effortlessly brings him back to life.

Why is it so hard to admit this is lazy writing? I actually liked the movie and I can admit it. Grow up :)

You must be referring to some dimestore novel EU shit because no he didn't during the actual movie.

He shows up, is immediately given a fighter jet with no experience whatsoever, then lands a "one in a million" shot despite not using any of the fancy targetting technology that the far better trained, professional soldiers were using, almost singlehandedly saving the day while experienced veterans die like mooks all around him.

This franchise has been built on "Mary Sues" since 1977.

Also he did all that beginner's luck 360 no-scope miracle shit while the most powerful Jedi in history, the literal Chosen One with decades of combat flight experience, was desperately trying to kill him specifically but couldn't even lock on him because reasons.

I'm not defending the sequels, but Luke didn't train his ass off. He did some pushups with yoda on his back. He was already way too old to start jedi training, and left degoba despite yoda telling him his training was just getting started.

Also, keep in mind he blew up the death star using the force, before any training. He was a good shot. And in the first sequel, Rey is clearly already a good fighter (without the force).

IMO both the OGT And the sequels And the prequels were doing that all to display how the need to heed your own moral compass apparently gives you ultimate force training at much faster than could be imagined by even Yoda or Palpatine.

Apparently acting on your good conscience is the secret to all the Mary Sue shit.
Lame af tbh but it seems to be what they aimed for in all those portrayals. Excluding of course Anakin’s instance of heeding his moral conscience to try saving Padme.

I'm not defending that stuff either, but you have to admit Rey does all the implausible shit Luke did and she does it to a WAY worse degree. To deny this is disingenuous.

I never said I liked any of these pisswater sequels. You seem to think that anyone who isn't sharing your years-long mental breakdown over the bad scary femoid is automatically a fan of The Thing You Don't Like, which is a retarded assumption held by retards. Climb out of this idiotic "us vs. them" outrage-algorithm pissing match mentality you have trapped yourself in.

These movies are, at best, lukewarm meaningless braindead CGI slop for general audience piggies strained through a corporate cumsock. Just like most big budget schlock has been, for decades.

But anyone who thinks the scary femoid was the first and only Mary Sue who ruined Star Wars by introducing the concept of "accomplishing implausible feats despite being young and inexperienced" to the franchise is a retard. Possibly conservative, I dunno, but definitely a drooling braindead knuckledragging retard.

Also, lmfao at C-Higgy laying the spoilerhammer down on the original Star Wars ending.

I hold that the prequels AND sequels weren't bad. Prequels were exactly what was needed to tell the backstory of Anakin and Obi Wan. Gotta say though the only time I watch them now is a fan edit that cuts out all but the end of episode one and pretty much all of jar jar.

Now that I've seen episode nine, it all makes a lot more sense. It was pretty damn good, though it did feel like they jammed a bit too much content into two hours and twenty min. I think there could easily be an extended edition that comes out in the future. Rey was so powerful because of her connection with Ben. This Diad anomaly is so rare that it even surprised Palpatine. It sort of explains it. Anyway, I thought it was pretty cool. Still wondering who the fuck Snoke was. Palpatine said he created him, but does that mean he cloned someone or what?

Anyway, they're just fucking movies. Watch them or don't. If you're gonna spend your free time hating on them, I think you should reevaluate your life.

Yep. I said earlier in this thread he’s honestly one of my favorite directors when it comes to uniqueness in filmmaking. I didn’t like TLJ but I liked that he basically took a shit all over JJs trash excuse of a story and left him to pickup the pissed-on scraps.
Hence this movie feeling like they pulled it all out their ass and might as well have just used this as Ep.7 instead of what they did and make literally not a single one of these movies matter thanks to what followed one after the other.

If I remember correctly the videogame and toy production from LucasArts went bankrupt or out of business or something. George wasn’t going to be able to afford making any more of the series, at least not on his own and he felt that Disney could broaden the fanbase. Really, it was money. 4 billion. He couldn’t refuse.

Lol. Now people are gonna say shit like this after we've spent the last two years shitting on TLJ and those who liked it.

>>Abrams just screwed it from the start.

No he didn't. Don't be dramatic. While The Force Awakens was a shameless remake of A New Hope, it was also the start of something new. Even if you didn't enjoy it at the time, you could still argue that it had a lot of potential. You can spend all day blaming JJ Abrams or Rian Johnson for whatever, but the fact remains that the sequel trilogy didn't even have a roadmap. It's just as messy as the prequels, but for different reasons.

Also, I'm gonna leave this here since I can relate

At this point, I'm just a fan of Star Wars spinoffs and video games. Not the main movies.

Well Lucas sold Lucasfilm and everything under the Lucasfilm umbrella including LucasArts and Star Wars but they weren't bankrupt or anything that forced Lucas to sell. He sold it Disney so he could secure his financial future and retirement and you're right that it was so they could expand Star Wars' fanbase for future generations. It sucks that LucasArts got shut down and Disney decided to just have Disney Interactive Studios and 3rd party companies like Electronic Arts make games since they were a great video game company.

I really liked TFA. I wish they just gave the whole trilogy to Rian Johnson.

But completely switching writers/directors in the middle of a trilogy, and then switching back is insane. WTF were they thinking? Although I think TFA was the best of the trilogy, it probably would've been better as a whole if they stuck with the same writers/director.

>At this point, I'm just a fan of Star Wars spinoffs and video games. Not the main movies.
Right? Say what you will about the prequels, but without them, we wouldn't have the Battlefront series.

hey man, I said I didn’t like the TLJ in that post. I can praise the director and his work there all the while disliking the movie itself. What I liked is that he very blatantly said fuck ya’ll giving me this random 1/3rd of the trilogy smack dab in the middle of JJ Abram’s cheeks as ep 7 & 9. RJ literally an entire movie consisting of nearly one setting/scenery aka the Space chase that lasted the whole movie, all the while killing off every bit of potential story JJ laid out. RJ is based as fuck for that. I dont care if he could have built more on it all, he acknowledged and canonized every fan criticism that came at Ep.7 and made it part of the script. Example; everyone bitched that Kylo is no Vader and seemed like a fucking childish pussy in comparison. Lo and behold Snoke calls him just that. RJ was willing to honor fans opinions and let them feel heard via on screen results. JJ and KK on the other hand force their agendas and made the most basic cinematic excuse of a star wars movie there is.

My list is similar:

It's high up on the list because it spawned memes. It's one of those "It's so bad that it's good" movies.
Yes, it was a ripoff of A New Hope, but it was refreshing to watch at the time. After being abused by the prequels, it felt like a Star Wars movie. Little did we know at the time that Disney would end up ruining the potential this new trilogy had.
Super cheesy, but the finale with Palpatine, Vader and Luke was good.
I honestly believe that if you took out Finn and Poe's useless subplots, it wouldn't have been such a bad movie. There would have been more room for all the underdeveloped themes to grow. Plus I feel like Luke Skywalker had a good arc in this movie. Still shit though.
A fucking mess, and a reactionary movie to 8. It's a "Dude, just turn your brain off" movie.
Both dumb and incomprehensible movies.

Quit your REEEEEEing and try simply reading.
a) Overall I liked The Rise of Skywalker, so your ad hominem was just like you: impotent. The only thing I didn't like was MaRey Sue because...
b) Being able to bring a character back from the dead is an order of magnitude greater than ANYTHING Luke ever did in the entire series. Please attempt to refute this point because I do so enjoy watching people with severe cognitive dissonance squirm.

wasn't the entire driving motivation of Anakin, the "chosen one" and child prodigy jedi, being turned to the dark side him getting visions of padme dying and needing more dark side power to bring her back to life?

it's a shame nobody told him that force resurrection not only doesn't need the dark side, but is actually apparently pretty easy and you can just feel it out on your first attempt

it's almost like that + palpatine being alive for no reason makes Anakin/Darth Vader's entire 6 movie story arc coming into this trilogy entirely pointless

Pretty sure it's KOTOR that you can recruit a fallen Jedi catgirl. You should be pretty close to the point in the game to do it, she's on Dantooine near the cave full of lightsaber crystals. If I remember correctly, she's a STR/DEX fighter with a dark side tendency and some Dark Side powers. She's good for stabbing things. Her and Zalbar, just throw some vibroblades on the wookiee.

The successor to Planescape is called "Torment: Tides of Numenera." But there was a huge drought in story heavy RPGS before that came out, so you were pretty much stuck with KOTOR and Dragon Age series to scratch that itch.

Ill probably see it in a year or so. Maybe when the full edition is released lol I hear an extended cut might come next month and there's more footage which will be disney+ exclusive.

> Kathleen Kennedy’s leadership at Lucasfilm has yielded 5 movies that will gross just under $6 billion in global grosses.
>Inflation aside, that’s more than all six Peter Jackson Middle Earth flicks.
> That’s 35% of MCU’s $17 billion 22-movie cume.
> or 76% of the $7.723 billion earned by the eight Harry Potter movies.
“And those five moves include one super-sized smash (Force Awakens) and one huge miss (Solo), with all but Rise of Skywalker earning decent reviews and solid audience word-of-mouth.

Even with all the behind-the-scenes struggles,
I’d argue Rise of Skywalker is the only one that seems a victim of studio tug-of-wars.”

So, about JJ [Abrams] and KK, and RJ.
What the fuck really even was this take-turns directing for this trilogy?
is that not the most soft modern thing imaginable for hollywood to do lol
