Suck it up you faggots complaining about it. No one cares why you think its ruining everything. Now mind me by saying that I love all the films, some more than other but still love them all. The prequels were a nice touch to show off the spectacular CGI and how it could be used to immerse the viewers even more into the Science-Fiction world. The lightsaber pictured is fucking amazing. Darth Maul's Dual Lightsaber was amazing. The movies are amazing. So now discuss your butthurt.
No one said it ruined "everything" but it does look pretty damn stupid. Why do they need to fuck with something as perfect as the original lightsaber design? It's a hilt that turns into a lazer sword, why fuck with that?
People are just afraid of change, Star Wars is a classic saga, everything was concluded, "if its not broken dont fix it", i think people are just afraid its going to be a fail cuz its different so they're just finding every little thing to get skeptical. Lol like the joker said "upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos" p.s everyone suddenly becomes lightsaber quantum physical professors
Nobody is QQ because of that, and if they are they're retards.
It's because it screams of JJ Abhrams style over substance. Remember how Into Darkness was awesome in every way? Oh wait, it stank....
combination of edgelords and an unnecessary PC studio thing. They cast a darkie in the lead so that more darkies go watch it in cinema.
Since it's starwars whites will flock to it regardless
right, because colbert never raises issues ever. Like that isn't the point of satire
A cross guard lightsaber, like the one shown in the trailer, IS cannon. The reason they are seen so rarely is due to the fact that 3 separate emitters are required to produce the guard. Although, the one in the trailer does seem to be of poor quality due to the very square shape of the guard. Glad to see the old cannon is being used
To me, I didn't hate it because of the practicality or the way that it looked. Granted I don't like the way it looks and also it isn't very practical. The reason I didn't like it was because it was the first real look into the new star wars, and with the prequels being shit I felt hope that this would make up for them. Then the first fucking thing they show off is this cross guard sabre and all I could think about was "huh, so... Instead of Darth Maul's double sabre they did a hilt sabre."
As if to say, hey we gotta make a new kind of lightsabre each time a new trilogy comes out, here's what we came up with. God Damn it.
I think they latched onto the Jedi Knight, Knights use broadswords, so lets have a dark jedi knight use a light broadsword.
since Abrahms doesn't have a clue what good screenplay is he went with it, and probably every other awful scene the film will inevitably have.
How do you faggots know that the black part of the cross guard isn't just surrounding the red light part to protect the users hand? Made this shitty paint drawing to demonstrate.
These are used by Darth Champ in the EU. I don't have a picture or photo but I drew this to show the basic idea
The metal might be the type that repells the light saber, i cant remeber the name of it but alot of people are thinking thats what it is, so it cant be cut through, and thats why the light saber is so shakey
>I love all the films
>liking the episode 2
>it wasn't even shot on film
Are people complaining about the lightsaber blade looking a little unrefined or are they complaining about the side blades?
The side blades are dumb if you ask me - they don't serve a purpose.
I could deal with a screwed up lightsaber especially since this is post Order 66 and the only living Jedi is Luke Skywalker - so the knowledge to build a lightsaber is mostly lost so it would make sense if the blade wasn't a perfect pristine blade shape like in all the other movies
Lightsabers are sleek, futuristic swords. They took something futuristic and made it look archaic, old looking. Do you know how fucking conflicting that is?
They took a nigger and made him into the lead role.
They have another nigress in the cast, I'm surprised nobodys mentioned her yet. Look up the cast on imdb if you don't believe me.
Everything they've chosen to show us is just "no". Unless the plot really, really somehow makes up for everything, you're going to hate this shit.
Would you play a new star wars game that had mcnigger as a main character? Do you want this crossguard shit popping up all over the place?
Think about how these things will feel as the NEW CANNON. It seems bearable now, but just like Han Solo and Luke Skywalker were tired into everything, so will this new guy and this retarded ass lightsaber.
Once you see it over and over again, you'll realize how much you fucking hate the new star wars.
Again, this is something you will notice you don't like after it repeats over and over again. One scene with this black guy would be okay, like whatever. But this the NEW CANON. And you'll be seeing this shit as the new star wars, for the rest of time.
agree with you on all points. Although Darth maul's Lightsaber was by far the greatest thing about the Prequals.
stylistically i like mixing old and new. i think it works. in fact, thats what a lightsaber is in the first place. it's a fucking sword. nobody used swords anymore, it's a new twist on an old weapon. steampunk is an old/new combo that works as well. additionally, personally, i think in this particular instance it works. The new lightsaber looks fucking awesome, i like the instability of the beam and the crossguard.
>actually being butthurt by black cast members
Even though the prequels were shit, you can still take the edgelord Anakin and think of him, in your mind, without cringing inside. The idea of him, what he represents, whatever.
Again, unless the plot really makes the black guy (and girl) into memorable characters, what are the next three movies going to leave you with?
Memories of niggers.
I'm just glad JJ is too busy ruining Star Wars that he doesn't have time to ruin Star Trek anymore
Has it not occured to anyone they are allowing a potentially volatile story point in the trailer to gauge peoples reactions and make subtle edits to avoid fucking up? This could just be a glorified consumer survey.
Actually, everyone is complaining because:
1. That lightsaber is has a retarded design.
2. Everyone hates that it continues the OT and its not a movie from glorious Revan's era, The Old Republic era.
Fuck you PT & OT faggots.
Old Republic is the best. They have acutal Jedis and Siths.
Not some pussies who cant deflect blaster shots and force lightning and can barely use the force.
can't I like both the fantasy of Star Wars and the science fiction of Star Trek?
ok one thing tho...when did anyone every get his hands cut off in a fight because of a lack of a hand guard in the films? noone right? it was always due to some move not just a strait lunge and swipe dealy right?so obviously this particular injury isnt too common so why does everyone think that a hand guard is needed or that the one on this new lightsaber would even get hit in a battle...if that area got hit then people would be losing more hands that way and theyre not so...
>not doing the saber justice
You know what occurred to me?
The physical, metal part of the guard looks fine, even if it was useless.
It's the shit that pops out that makes it seem so stupid. They couldn't have a subtle change. They needed to add all that extra.
I could have told you 10 fucking years ago that Lucas was planning episodes 7 8 and 9 to be about what happens after 6 and the rebuilding of republic. Anyone who thought they were going to be Knights of the Old Republic movies is retarded.
>not knowing the plural is Jedi and Sith.
>being this much of a faggot
I think if you care about this beyond going to see some dumb sci-fi film next Christmas, then you are a fucking faggot and need to remove yourself from the gene pool.
Oh wait, most of you were never in the gene pool.
Lucas has barely anything to do with these movies.
And Lucas is fucking butthurt that other people made a lot better stories, characters, pretty much anything than he and his shitty love story of Anakin failwalker. Thats why he made almost everything non-canon.
He probably shat his pants and cried for hours when a single SWTOR cinematic trailer destroyed 6 movies in 3-5 minutes. Thats how good it was.
>being you, such a retard who doesnt know not everyone's native language is motherfucking english and that in my language Jedi is just single and there is a different for plurar, same goes for Sith. so fuck u fagot
>And Lucas is fucking butthurt that other people made a lot better stories, characters, pretty much anything than he and his shitty love story of Anakin failwalker.
I always thought of Maul as someone with a lot on his mind.
But then he was given 4 lines and killed.
And the staff lightsaber was actually cool, and instantly recognizable.
