Yes, I am part of the problem :shifty:.


That'd be awesome, if you didn't check out the Star Wars Comic-con panel (spoiler for future trilogy possibly)
when someone asks about Plageus's future Daisy Ridley says "is that sn.." then is instantly interrupted and stared down by JJ, and then he quickly moves on... so alot of people think plageus = snoke
.

IDK the history anymore, I know there was The Old Republic, but that was extended trilogy so idk how far back the 'force' history goes before TPM.

Yeah watched it again on Saturday, I love it, I have issues all over the place with it, but damn it I love it.

Oh I am sure I spotted on Yavin was a YT-2000 which is the main ship in X-Wing Alliance :wub:
Though I am probably wrong, also I am still wondering who the fat guy that plays Red 5 is, I know Red 5 is Lukes call sign in a new hope, so that is why they show him, but it also feels like a cameo.

I've seen it twice so far, first in the cinema, then second with that crappy yaaarrrr version. I need to get to the cinema again before it leaves.

Great film spoilt by the obvious computer generated main character - it will look even worse in 4k! Better than star wars 7.

I think that was the joke. I can never tell though

We need this man to do a between-6-and-7 Luke Skywalker trilogy! #draftbucky

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

I can recommend seeing it 3 times in six days.

I'd like a film about the Midi-chlorian's as they sound fantastic.

Alvin Flummux wrote:1. Boba Fett seems to be a pretty legendary bounty hunter, which is why he is among the handful hired by the Empire to find the Falcon. It's more than likely Solo and Chewbacca knew of Fett by reputation alone, and given the circles they both ran in, they probably had crossed paths before.
2. We already have Fett's origin in Episode II.

I'd be much more interested in a Fett film starting out where Episode VI left him - in the Sarlacc's stomach. Let's see his story during the waning days of the Empire and beyond. It could give us a look at that era without having to overtly thrusting more Young Original Cast in our faces.

I also might be interested in a Vader-centric film, were it not for the possibility that he may cry "NoOo" at every turn.


There's also that restored Han and Jabba scene from A New Hope (Originally Jabba was human) and Boba was there with him then.

Watched this finally today.

Genuinly that was the best Star Wars film since Empire. Even if I am pissed they wrote Kyle Katam out of the canon.

I agree they're a close match but that picture has been slightly shopped to bring SS's eyes closer together,nostrils less flared and mouth shape slightly different; this is the original. Nothing that couldn't be solved with pretty basic FX in this day and age though.

It doesn't even need to be a perfect match. On that note, why they didn't just cast a suitable actor for Cushing's old role, I don't know. Surely any audience can be appreciative of the fact someone is bloody dead (or several decades older)?!

Cushing had a very distinct facial appearance and voice, which would be difficult for a replacement actor to replicate under any conditions. I thought the CG actor was believable and well done.

I think the CG was unnecessary but Guy Henry was good in the role.

Same, saw it the other week and thought it was brilliant. The pacing at the start was a bit off with it constantly cutting from location to location but the final third was amazing.

To add to this, a Grievous origin story might be pretty cool too:
