Is this EU stuff or plain Disney ''original" work?
Also, they even managed to recruit Mads Mikkelsen for this...
>Mads Mikkelsen (Galen appears to be his name in the film) is kind of the key to the film in a way. He is a scientist that took over the Geonosian Death Star project. He solved several of the flaws the Empire could not and is sort of a revered person in the Empire for his contributions. However, Mikkelsen’s character is a Robert Oppenheimer-type character. Oppenheimer helped design the atomic bomb only to say, “Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.” The guilt “Galen” feels for his contributions to the Empire become too much and he defects, attempting to make things right. In order to do this, he enlists the help of his only daughter
Is this movie even needed? In TFA they just kind of seemed to know how to destroy the Star Killer on just a guess taking out its ocelator would blow it up. So is R1 just going to be about, oh yeah just shoot a torpedo in the vent thing.
>plans for the death star
FUCK OFF WITH THIS FUCKING DEATHSTAR SHIT HOLY FUCKING FUCK BY THE TIME THIS PIECE OF SHIT FRANCHISE ENDS THE PREQUELS WILL BE CONSIDERED THE BEST OUT OF ALL OF THEM JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONLY FUCKING MOVIES WITHOUT DEATHSTARS IN IT HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY USE THIS SAME FUCKING IDEA SO MANY TIMES

I think Kathleen Kennedy said there would be no Jedi in it, I'm not 100% on that being quotable but I was something along those lines.
More of a gritty war film set in space than 'the comedy adventures of the space wizards'
We get to see Felicity Jones dirty and sweaty, that's all that matters.
>it'll be a series of movies about how great his love interest is and how badly she don't need no man
>other characters will constantly remark about how great she is while boba fett is reduced to comic relief
No-one would give a fuck about this if it was a non SW film.
It is 100% nostalgia based. Death Star. Both an spies. Grand Moff Tarkin. Vader. R2D2
Mix that with a diverse cast and a female lead who will probably commit suicide at the end and serve on a bed of shit.
Welcome to the death of the Star Wars universe.
I am genuinely looking forward to this and hope they find the right tone for it. I wouldnt be surprised if an actually decent movie(not just decent star wars) would be the result
Kylo is Jacen.
Rey is Jaina.
First Order is New Order.
Starkiller Base takes from the name Starkiller (from TFU) and the concept of the Sun Crusher.
It is literally nothing more than a rehashed EU with different names.
That is not relevant. It's the predictability which renders it pointless.
It's Fanfic level writing with fannish predictable character beats.
And suggesting any dissent is "autistic" renders anything you might say irrelevant as it suggests you have nothing aposite to say on the subject. All you have is attempted demonization which is the modus operandi of a child.
With all of the references to the original movie TFA has, do you really unironically think it's more likely that they took the name Starkiller from one of the countless video games instead of the original source?
I don't know anything about it and I can still tell its not going to have authentic feeling of Lucas Star Wars and will probably have a bunch of dumb humor and 'boyfriend' like moments. Christ, not even non-Terran characters in Guardians of the Galaxy have them.
Rey will become the Prime Jedi and train every new Jedi within the next two films.
It will be a Jedi Matriarchy with no white men doing any Jedisplaining.
She will fall in love Kylo the Sith boy and change his ways, like all women do to wayward stupid men.
This is not even a joke, sadly, I really expect all of this to happen.
