WGA member here. Just wanted to share something, I won't be answering any questions.
I have on good authority the title of Episode VIII is Knights of the First Order. Screenshot this.
>yfw this is what he looks like now
IG-88 is made out of random shit recycled from the first movie
that's kinda funny.
Lore-wise, it's probably something like "the scum and villains of Mos Eisley repurposed the casings of old assassin droids for lamps in the bar" or some such.
Most weapons used int he original trilogy are made from real WW2 guns. Han's famous gun is a Nazi broom-handled Mauser. Stormtroopers use allied British rifles
Luke's lightsaber (and later Anakin's in the prequel trilogy) was made from a camera part called a Graflex flashgun for having a flash for phjotography
