It's cynical as all strawberry float.

There's a range of soft toys with massive eyes that my niece (8), and apparently all her friends are mad into. I couldn't tell you what they're called*, but they sell like crazy, apparently. This is clearly a very targeted attempt to sell into that crowd.

Fake edit: A Ty Beanie Boo, apparently.

To be fair, they're being faithful to the franchise. This is extremely Star Wars-esque.

My daughter was bought the penguin on the front row. Creepy as strawberry float when you see any light reflecting off its eyes at night in her room :lol: :dread:

They had (and cut) snowspeeders in the Force Awakens, so you'd hope they wouldn't do a snow planet again

On the flipside, it's probably to be expected that many, many of the universe's habitable planets would be cold enough to be predominantly snowy.

It's not a snow planet, it's been described as basically like a salt plain.

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 just watched this on my phone - maybe that was a bad idea as I felt kind of disappointed. It just all felt a bit prequel like as someone said. I hope it turns out to be better than it seems, and in hindsight I wish I hadn’t watched it.
Those of you who have resisted, well done.

I've watched it a few times now and the spoiler about Chewie's family is quite something.

Trailer looks awesome.

I've been trying to book tickets for hours on Cineworld's website. Seems their servers are gooseberry fool.

I have resisted so far, but my interest in Star Wars has waned slightly after the rather drab Rogue One, so perhaps that's not a big shock to me.

What I found surprising was they all wore clothes, meaning Chewie has been naked in all the films.

Suprised at some of the talk on here. Are people really bothered if there's a snow planet or desert planet again?

Also Rogue one was great.

No way am I watching this trailer!

Tickets booked :mrgreen:! IMAX of course. Drinks afterwards to discuss the film, followed by a late night 2D showing so I can see it again! 8-)

Rogue One Defence Force unite :datass:

I agree, there are only so many planets you can do.

Snow planet - Hoth
Water planet - Kamino
Desert planet - Tatooine
Earthlike planet - Naboo / Takodana
Beach planet - Scarif
Jungle planet - Dagobah
Lava planet - Mustafar

That basically covers everything. You could go full on weird with something like No Man's Sky, but that would presumably require tons of CGI and would clash in a lot of ways with the Star Wars aesthetic

Degobah is a swamp planet and Scarif is an island planet, noob.
