The alien races and alien animals in TFA don't really resemble Star Wars. Star Wars aliens tend to have a particular look to them, both the sentients and the beasts. TFA's aliens all look like they were ripped off some other franchise's aliens.

And they didn't even bring back Twi'leks, Biths, Sullustans, etc.

And pic related is not something you'd expect from Star Wars.

nien nunb was literally in the movie

I thought they looked like D&D monsters. The whole thing had a rather D&D feel to it, which makes me greatly anticipate the Darths And Droids version.

There was another D&D-esque part in the movie, at the end when Rey "uses the force" and closes her eyes to do a little meditation thing before beating Kylo in a saber fight. That was her levelling up, buying and then immediately using Battle Meditation, which anyone who has played KotOR will remember is a broken-as-fuck buff/debuff power.

I dont understand why the fuck did JJ decide to screw all the existing races and introduce completely new ones.

ALL of the aliens in TFA (save for nien nunb) are new.

This is terrible, because TFA is already a glib facsimile of SW that feels more like a boring Guardians of the Galaxy, but all new aliens alienate (pun intended) viewers from the fact that the film takes place in the SW universe

TFA is terrible choice after terrible choice

TFA in general lacked original designs which all Lucas' movies had. Only scene which felt alien enough for SW (with oc) was the cantina scene.

>>64624124

Option A : Sell countless new toys to newcomers to the franchise that are mostly kids, even toys of characters that didnt appear in the final cut

Option B: appease some middle aged nerds and throw all opportunities of selling merchandise.

If you think of TFA as a film you'll be dissappointed, you must see it as a product.

They based all the design choices on toy and merchandise sales.

That's the difference between Disney Star Wars and Lucas Star Wars.

Lucas put his autistic mind into the films to try an make a "good" film (from his point of view) while also selling toys and shit

Disney just thinks of the money without trying to make a good film

There was nothing distinct about Jakku that made it different from Tatooine, that's the point.
It was just literally Not!Tatooine.
Naboo is just another forest planet, but it's distinct enough to make it different from say, Endor and Dagobah.
The same goes for Hosnian Prime and Coruscant. HP wasn't distinct enough from Coruscant so naturally people thought Coruscant blew up.

>There was nothing distinct about Jakku that made it different from Tatooine, that's the point.

I thought the scavenging aspect was cool. A planet that's basically a graveyard for shipwrecks from a giant battle, that's a good idea. The only part that I thought showed the planet in an uncreative way was Finn's walk, where it was just all desert, but all the other scenes had interesting stuff going on (Rey's introduction, sleigh-riding on the dunes, Rey's AT-AT hovel, the scavenger who tries to take BB-8, the outpost, the battle station wreck). For how little exposition there was and how little time was spent there, Jakku was pretty well depicted.

Yeah, that makes perfect sense.

>Naboo is just another forest planet, but it's distinct enough to make it different from say, Endor and Dagobah.

What? Dagobah is a swamp and Naboo has way more plains than Endor. It's not "just another forest planet". If anything, it looks like NZ in Lord of the Rings, but with cities.
>>
Naboo has a race of humanoid people with the renaissance like architecture and unique looking space vessels. A race of people who live under water. An underground 'planet core' ocean etc etc

you realize spacce is really big, right? there's probably always been tons of different species in the SW universe that was never shown on screen. that's the magic of fictional work, you can always make the excuse that there's just unseen planets and lifeforms that you can introduce at any point. it seems to me you're just butthurt you didn't get any new Twi'lek girls to fap to.

There are no toys for those gangs or the monster. There's two minifigures of kanjiklub with the millenium falcon lego set but it's not like you need to add anything to a falcon set to sell it, especially when it has Han, Chewie, and BB-8.
>>
>>64624487

There's a very big difference though:

Tatooine is Tunisia, and Jekku is Abu Dhabi. Completely different parts of the world.

There was a reason they went back to Tatooine in RotJ. Have you even watched these movies? In TFA it seems like JJ just wanted a desert planet for the sake of cheap pottery.

The buildings on Jakku looked completely different from the dome, sandstone stucco structures on Tatooine. They had fabrics and tents and open air markets, whereas on Tatooine everything was closed in buildings. They didn't even have a spaceport on Jakku.

They also emphasized it was not Tatooine by showing the single sun over and over.

Also, Hoth looked like the Arctic. Starkiller Base surface looked like Rocky Mountain National Park with all the forests.

Both environments IRL have snow, but are completely different ecosystems. In the movie it was obviously the same.

I said the building structure was entirely different.

The sand and shit except with Finn looks different because they filmed in a different desert on a different continent.

What did you want? Her to scavenge on a water planet? It would be difficult to gather working parts that way or even make it to shipwrecks.

The only thing they haven't done is plains/grasslands, unless you count Naboo.

But if you go film on location at a grasslands, it would make it fucking obvious you were on the African Savannah or the plains of the USA, because they are so unique looking. And thus immersion could be broken.

My point is that Tatooine in RotJ isn't just the same thing you saw in ANH so it's fine. Jakku was just as different as ANH Tatooine was to RotJ Tatooine.
