what is the purpose of this character?

triggering /v/edditor manchilds

>>64663180
To be the person who owned the cantina that had Luke's lightsaber.
Didn't you watch the movie? Hopefully we won't show up again or atleast not as an important character.

She gives Rey her lame version of Luke's "My family is dead and nothing holds me on Tatooine now" moment, by just telling her that nobody's coming back to pick her up from Jakku.

Yoda said he trained Jedi for 800 years and was almost senile. This lady has been around for 1000 and seems in her 60s at best.

She awakens the Force in Rey.

Seriously, she only starts using the Force after meeting her and having the vision. Maybe they had a bigger spiritual Yoda-like Force-showcase scene that got removed or so.

Why does Maz live in a semi-ruined church with a statue of herself on top?

Why do so many different aliens gravitate to her planet / church / bar when it's apparently an unpopulated backwater in the middle of a forest?

Where are all their spaceships parked? Do they have to walk along a signposted forest trail from a spaceship parking lot over to her church?

Why did she keep Luke's lightsaber in a chest from Pirates of the Caribbean, in a basement that literally anyone could have walked into and stolen it?

I'm sure JJ wanted another black person in the cast, so why they cast this young girl instead of an older black lady is beyond me.

She just sounds like a young person trying to do an old person voice.

It's a castle, not a church. She has a castle.

Well she seems to like antiques/treasure etc so why not an old church/castle thing

Easy place to lie-low and organize things with other criminals

I'm thinking it's because Jim Henson isn't around to do creature designs. This looks like shit. Only the bearded Ithorian looks half-decent.

>>64664081
with the exception of the Crimson Corsair (far right):
too much brown/green
everyone has 2 arms and 2 legs
costumes are literally all the same
aliens look too similar
humans look too normal

It's like I'm watching labyrinth

>>64664081

The tall guy with the eye stalks on the far left looks like a blatant ripoff on an Ithorian.

Maybe he's a half-breed or something?

More than likely just glib JJ, though.
>>
>>64663180
New female edition Yoda character to appeal to AA faggots.

>>64664183

Ithorians aren't supposed to have beards or mouths in the front.
>>
>>64664081
They all look like they belong in a fantasy flick, not sci fi.

The Mos Eisley cantina had werevolves and the devil, but also ayy lmaos and men in space suits.
>>
>>64664306
If I remember correctly he's supposed to be a sub-species of Ithorian. I'm okay with that.
>>
>>64664081
For six movies, and throughout the madness of George, Star Wars still managed to resist creating a nonsensically "female" robot. Until JJ Abrams. Jesus titty fucking Christ, why does the robot have boobs?
>>
>>64663616
because Lucas had nothing to do with TFA
>>
>>64664423

Really? That's lazy as fuck.

They need George back. He may write corny dialogue, but at least he has original ideas.
>>
>>64663746
TELL THAT TO KANJIKLUB
>>
>>64664081
there were the only costume designs they made somewhat of an effort on in the whole fucking movie.

1 scene. the cantina ripoff. lazy fake ass shit. star wars my ass. so much for the comeback of practical effects

the shit dialogue isn't worth the "original" ideas 2bh

Yes, because George Lucas didn't steal the design of C3PO from Fritz Lang...

I read up on that creature in the force awaken guide book. Basically it's an alien from a planet close to Ithorians and from same star systems. Hence why it look similar yet also different.

Doesn't make sense. Maz isn't completely fucking awesome.

Literally worse than Jar Jar

Maz Kanata shows up for 10 minutes then ACTUALLY DISAPPEARS, no farewell no acknowledgement no development. A useless non-character. Embarassing for everyone involved

I think there was one like this at Jabba's palace.
>>
>>64665036

that's shamefully true. Jar Jar was an actual character who did stuff. Maz was a plot device.

It's OK to have characters who are plot devices but shit man, to have Han Solo specifically call out how unique and weird she was and how important she'd be, you need to deliver something which was absolutely not delivered.

literally everything in this movie is a rip-off of something

jj is a clever jew, he knew that if he ripped shit people are familiar with at some level, the movie would simply make money.
Then he got the tumblrSJWBLM crowd involved, and he knew a percentage of 'die-hard' nerdittor SW fans would hail the movie as a masterpiece no matter what, so that his highly commercial / commercialized bullshit would have a shield from criticism by very vocal groups on the internet.

He basically made a ripoff he knew a big strong retard would defend at all costs and current internet pop-culture would eat up. Its more of a product than a movie
