They're deliberately dangling it, but I'd be amazed if it wasn't true.
The Cinematography and the boatload of hints would make it a pretty ham handed red herring, and Finn proves they know how to handle red herrings well.

Best he can hope for is a last minute redemption. Considering how theyre already lifting from the OT, angsty teen vader might get one.

>>78254219
I'd prefer Phasma and Hux to be redempted over him, he's didn't do the trick for me while Hux did and Phasma has the adventage of being played by an amazing actress. Also if stormtroopers are all indoctrinated it'd be easy to set up redemption for her.

>>78253891
I'd personally like it if he and Rey swapped sides.

He's already clearly struggling with his emotions and isn't particularly well trained, and Snoke might manage to push him further away

Looking back on all the fake rumors is fun.

>Rey is Han's daughter.

>Finn is Lando's son and a rebel spy.

>Dohmhall Gleeson is a comic relief cowardly inventor who keeps switching sides to save himself.

>Lupita N'yongo is a Luke's apprentice and Poe's lover.

>Gwendoline Christie is a sorceress who worships the Dark Side.

>Max Von Sydow is Rey's caretaker, a cyborg who collects artifacts connected to the Force.

>Kylo Ren is a X-Wing pilot who becomes obsessed with the Force and betrays the Rebels to join Snoke.

>Snoke is an powerful Sith Lord whose body was destroyed by Luke. However, He became one with the Force and has since been tormenting Luke into succumbing to the Dark Side, forcing Luke to exile himself, and also influencing the remnants of the Empire and seducing Kylo.

>Inquisitors armed with lightsabers dedicated to killing all Force-Sensitives.

>Jedi Hunters who artificially harness the Force and are loyal to the remnants of Empire.

>Blank lightsabers that change colors depending on its' wielder's alignment with the Dark Side or the Light.

>Han sacrificing himself to destroy the Starkiller Base by kamikazing it with the Millennium Falcon. His last words are "Never tell me the odds".

so with the movie out im wondering
how worthwhile are this this and the Clone Wars show?
i fell of CW rather early and haven't seen any of this but
hey this is the EU now i should jump in at some point
>>
>>78254304
Rey falling to the Dark Side before coming back to the Light in the final film would be interesting. Like a condensed version of the 6 original films. Rey joining the Dark Side at the end of the next film would also be a good mirror for the Empire winning at the end of episode 5.

I don't think Rey really has the personality to fall to the Dark Side though. Although I guess Snoke could tempt her by offering her the power to save Finn's life.
>>
>>78254351

Clone Wars gets shockingly good after the first couple of seasons.

Rebels got good in the second half of the first season, second season started strong but has been doing episodic plots but the latest ep was pretty good.
>>
>>78253900
No, just the movie is drawing everyone's attention.
>>
>>78254323
You forgot

>Lupia N'Yongo plays Assajj Ventress
>Benedict Cumberbatch plays a young clone of Palpatine
>one of the villains is a descendant of count Dooku

To be fair this sounds less wild than what Jar Jar actually wanted Cumberbatch for.
>>
>>78254219
I disagree. He doesn't seem like a Vader at all and I don't think he will get a similar story arc. If he gets redemption, it will happen slowly over the whole trilogy and he will suffer more than Vader did. But unlike Vader he might survive and walk off into the unknown regions. If he doesn't get redemption, then he'll probably become the Big Bad and murder Snoke.
Whatever they do, it will be different to what Lucas did with Vader, because Kylo Ren is a completely different kind of character. He's a complex anti-villain who desperately wants to be a complete monster. We never had anything like that in Star Wars before which is awesome.
>>
>>78253887
This doesn't even try to look like Christie but whatever, there's very little decent Phasma content anyway
>>
>>78254433
>He's a complex anti-villain
How is he an anti villain? After all he's done he's just a straight up villain.

Are they changing the standards on how deep into a gravity well you're allowed to safely enter and exit hyperspace now?

Are they also changing the standards on how planetary shields work?

I'm rather astounded that Starkiller Base wasn't escorted by Star Destroyers, did they not learn their lesson from the Death Star?
>>
>>78254601
>learn their lesson

The only thing they'll learn is to build an EVEN BIGGER Death Star, the Death Sun.
>>
>>78254433
I Still suspect that the rumour that he has to rely on old sith artifacts for power (maybe not completely, but partially) If you look at how he acts thoughout the movie, it screams -SELF ESTEEM ISSUES- which could definetly stem from him really just being average or below average with the force. Particularly his freeze move looks suspecious. Its an immensively powerful trick that we havent ever seen before, but he seems kind of underwhelming otherwise, you ?

>>78254700
Where did you get that? im genuinely interested. I spent a lot of the movie wondering how the hell things ended up the way they are, politically. And where things are taking place, geographically. Like is the Order in the outer rim? what happened to Corruscant?
>>
>>78254700
Does the New Republic not have many ISDs either?

I rather enjoy concept of the canon universe being one where the major difference is thanks to an early peace treaty everyone sensibly disarmed and there was a gradual climb-down over time of armaments so the conflicts become more local and sporadic.

It makes for a very large and obvious difference to Legends in which thanks to the lack of an early peace treaty the war just kept scaling up and up and up until by the time of the Yuuzhan Vong war there were Star Destroyers basically everywhere, and the NR had three whole fleet groups guarding Coruscant alone.
>>
>>78254631
He seems to be very powerful and he would've destroyed Finn and Rey if Chewbacca didn't shoot him before, so it's not that he's weak. But he is still inexperienced and he has basically zero self control while Rey can stay collected even in a stressful situation.

It'd be great if the Republic/Resistence built their own super weapon in response to the First Order's.

I imagine they're in a cold war scenario that Starkiller Base was supposed to break.
Next episodes will probably be the rest of the galaxy turning on them, and Snoke/Luke taking a more personal role in it all.
Remember how hard Obi Wan got him when Alderaan got destroyed?
Imagine how Luke must have felt when The Senate Solar System got wiped out

He is brutal and aggressive, but he was also being humanised from the very beginning. Did you notice how his behaviour changes whenever he doesn't wear his mask? He seems much more insecure and vulnerable whenever the mask is off, even in the scene where he kills Han
Although he's a cruel villain, we're supposed to relate to Kylo in a twisted way.
>>
>>78254852
Wasn't that in one of the early drafts? Where the lightsaber was basically a macguffin?

I'd be amazed if they kept that scale of one upmanship.
Given that the First Order and resistance doesn't seem to have that big a fleet, it feels more like a one shot gamble.

I liked how he paid attention to Finn during the open scene and immediatly knew he was the one who had defected. It was nice having a leader who seemed to actually pay attention to his underlings.

They talk about the Star Destroyer on Ren's page.

It also says that there is a Republic Fleet and it's the strongest army in the galaxy, but it's a fraction of the old Republic's clone army in terms of strength. They also explain about the Republic senate scene, the world they destroyed was Hosnian Prime not Coruscant.

I felt that the First Order cared more about it's troops than the Empire did. Plus I liked how Hux defended his Grandfather when Kylo mentions that they should have used clones trained from birth after Hux's men failed
>>
>>78255031
I wish Rebels was set between episode 6 - 7 to actually explain all this new stuff.
>>
>>78255028
For like 5 seconds I thought he was Obi-Wan projecting an illusion or something like that
>>
>>78255000
Yeah, it seems like they cut out many scenes and I really missed the scene of Kylo sitting in the Millenium Falcon that was in the MSW synopsis. That would have probably been very powerful, but I guess the plot was already too bloated.

Funny how Starkiller Base is basically a cross between various non-canon superweapons:

>Death Star

>Star Forge

>Darksaber
It's a crude North Korean knockoff of a Death Star

>Centerpoint Station

>>78255154
Phasma is relevant and wins a hand to hand fight
>>
>>78255154
Rey turns to the dark side and Kylo turns to the light side. Kylo kills Rey and becomes a main protagonist in the next trilogy.
It's not impossible, but I would be seriously surprised if they actually did something like that.
>>
Kylo really missed a chance to point out that Rey was fighting with her aggressive feelings and that was the path to power.

I suppose he's just not that good with the dark side.

It's probably a great way to make the alien worlds feel important though.

"Hey guys, we're the republic, but we want you to know that we're not some faraway uncaring assholes, so we're going to come and have our sessions on your planet!"

And this is Star Wars, so they could probably have just strapped rockets and a hyperdrive to the senate building or something.

Weird that they finally found Luke at the end and only Rey and Chewbacca and R2 went there. Leia didn't want to drop by and say hi? They didn't think they might need to bring some X-wing escorts since they have no idea what dangers are lurking in the Unknown Regions?
>>
So do you reckon that the Knights are going to job when they turn up, be presented as a threat to normies but not force sensitives, or are they going to be a legit threat to all concerned?
>>
>X-wings get sent to strike a high value target and get massacred
Should have sent B-wings or A-wings.
>>
>>78255705
They'll be villains for Finn, Poe, Chewie and other normies to fight.

>>78255629
Leia probably has duties.
Or maybe she feels guilty for not nurturing her own talents and helping him out.

Were there any Bothans in this movie? Aside from the Mon Cal at the strategy meeting and that weird new long-faced alien in Poe's squadron I'm having trouble remembering if I saw any other alien Rebels at all.
>>
>>78255154
Since we're talking about rebel's superweapons...
Leia get the command Alderaan's Will, a powerful terraforming tools made to give a new home to the victims of war(s) or to fix planets that have been ravaged by them. Used on a inhabited world however...
But with the threat of the First Order, the temptation is great to use it to destroy their Bastion and end this war already. How many worlds we won't have to rebuild by destroying a single one?
>>
>>78255705
Actually, it would be an interesting thought if the Knights of Ren were were padawan level at best when alone but when grouped together they become a legitimate threat
>>
>>78255724

Apparently those Rebel troop transports are built from cannibalized B-Wings.

>>78255805

There was a Sullustan in the X-Wing squadron, and plenty of aliens in the base shot, especially near the end.

That was Admiral Ackbar. Tien Numb was also in Poe's squadron and I think there some others scattered around the Rebel headquarters.

>The European Parliament has three places of work – Brussels (Belgium), the city of Luxembourg (Luxembourg) and Strasbourg (France). Luxembourg is home to the administrative offices (the 'General Secretariat'). Meetings of the whole Parliament ('plenary sessions') take place in Strasbourg and in Brussels.

>>78254819
By making peace with the Empire and disarming the New Republic is really just saying "fuck you I got mine" to the planets still suffering under Imperial rule aren't they? Somewhat contradicts their original intention to free the galaxy from the Imperial yoke.
It's not like both the NR and the Empire are holding superweapons and the threat of mutual assured destruction is maintaining the cold war. If the NR had the upper hand their ideals should have demanded they press their advantage, if the Empire had the upper hand their system would demand the same.

How did people feel about it anyway?

I'd been looking forward to it, then a combination of spoilers and reviews branding it a 'rehash' really brought me down right before attending a midnight release screening here in the UK with my bros - I ended up expecting to hate it.

Poe giving BB-8 the map (Death Star Plans) really had me rolling my eyes, but in the end I came around to actually appreciating the way they used so many original trilogy setpieces with different spins, showing history repeating itself, establishing the new leads while having the older characters react in different ways.

Got home at 4AM, woke up today and on a whim went to see it again with two of the three same bros at the first daytime showing in my hometown, actually appreciated it a lot more the second time since I could focus on how the story was told rather than trying to pick out differences and details about the new 30-years-down-the-line state of the universe.

I'm so glad there wasn't a bullshit 'No, I am your son,' reveal or anything, which is what the spoilers had made me expect and worry about. In a way, knowing about Han's death made it even more tragic.

So, like, when the ground collapsed and separated Ray and Kylo, did Rey not have her blaster anymore? She could have shot him easily.

Yeah honestly the movie has a hell of a lot of similarities to ANH but frankly that's okay, because Star Wars came out in the 70s and most of the audience of this one are kids now.

Exactly. It was more an inversion of Jedi's Luke/Vader moment in that Ren did the opposite of redeeming himself by saving Luke - rather than what I was worried about, that it'd just be a simple reversed father/son reveal from Empire.

>>78256539
Yeah, to be honest it really takes elements from the OT as a whole rather than just ANH - it's a pretty simple way of establishing "right, THIS is what Star Wars is," to normies who maybe caught one of the prequels in theaters or on TV but (rightfully) got bored by their meandering and put off the franchise.

Makes sense to get "JJ the reboot man" for this instalment, then hopefully we can see some cool new stuff in the next two episodes and anthology movies.

IV>V>VI=VII*>II>I>III

It's hard to put VII up there with the OT since they're never going to be quite as iconic and change things the way those movies did, but putting those things aside, from a storytelling point of view, Awakens has much better pacing throughoutI (between Jabba's palace and the Battle of Endor, things drag quite a bit), even if Jedi's peaks are higher.

The prequels are hard to rank. III goes at the bottom for me personally just because it's way darker than I think Star Wars should really get (Anakin slaughtering children makes it hard for me to accept his "redemption" in VI - even if his involvement with the Death Star has a higher bodycount, you don't see those on screen directly), however it also has the dankest memes so it's difficult

The New Republic never claims Coruscant. It's capital is and always was Chandrila.

As such, that whole subplot with the spy trees? No good. Anything that depends on the New Republic being on Coruscant just gets fucked in general.

Also, all the chronology regarding the Empire's relationship with Honoghr was already fucked by the prequels moving the Clone Wars and the birth of the Empire forward considerably.

Did you ever hear the story of Rudolf the Reindeer? I thought not. It's not a story the Jews would tell you. It's a Christmas legend. Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer was a reindeer with a shiny nose so bright he could use the light to direct Santa's sleigh to deliver...presents. He had such a shiny nose that he could even keep the ones he cared about cheerful on Christmas day. Christmas magic is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. His nose became so bright...the only thing he feared was the other reindeer laughing and calling him names, which eventually, of course, they did. Unfortunately, the other reindeer wouldn't let him join in any reindeer games, then Santa hired him to guide his sleigh. It's ironic. The other reindeer rejected him, but not Santa Claus.

Not in the movie. Chandrila, as Mon Mothma's home world, was designated the capital of the New Republic in the novel Aftermath. According to the Visual Dictionary, after the Battle of Jakku (a little more than a year after Endor), the Empire and the New Republic struck up a Galactic Concordat, setting operational boundaries; the Empire mostly stayed in the Core and Inner Rim, while the New Republic takes the Mid Rim and Outer Rim Territories. The First Order comes from a group of Imperials who went off into the Unknown Regions, essentially they're the Empire of the Hand version 2.0.
>>
>>78257045

SoulCalibur IV was kind of a misfire in general, as the SoulCalibur series goes.

You'll trash the AI's shit with Yoda from here to Coruscant, but if you try to take him against a human opponent of any decent skill he's basically garbage.

Vader's almost the reverse of Yoda that way. Struggles against the AI (which I'm sure must be cheating...or maybe I just really suck) but is upper-mid tier competitively.

Starkiller's somewhere in-between.

I can't really recommend it unless you absolutely must have a fighting game with lightsabers.

It's a hell of a lot better than Masters of Teras Kasi or TCW: Lightsabers Duels, though. It's bad for a SoulCalibur game, but it's all right in a general sense.
>>
>>78257145
Interesting. I suppose if you tortured the lore a little, you could claim that Coruscant had been selected as the capital by process of election for the period in which Thrawn trilogy takes place, but that it was changed because of protests by disaffected systems. This sort of aligns with the Thrawn trilogy, because in the first chapter with Luke in it, he says that setting up government in the former Imperial Palace gets the symbolism "all wrong". But that's admittedly just wishful thinking on my part.
>>
>>78256982
II has some hilarious lines, and is genuinely awful throughout, whereas I is not only bad but boring - there's about an hour after the podrace where fucking nothing happens.

I don't necessarily think II is better made, but it's more fun to watch with ur cheeky m8s.

I also prefer IV since the original Star Wars has a greater significance as a film, what it changed about Hollywood, George's struggles to get it made, the fact that every sign pointed towards it being a disaster yet one of the most significant films of the 20th century was salvaged from the troubled production.

V is great, and it's probably a better piece of drama, it's probably the best 'Star Wars film,' but as a film academic I just find IV to be more fascinating, particularly since it's the only one of the original trilogy which George directed himself, the way he recasts John Ford Westerns and Kurosawa Samurai movies into this grand retelling of Campbell's Hero's Journey. It's absolutely beautiful.

This is beyond crap.

A facist system of government and a Republic can't co-exist like this. Logically, both systems of government would find themselves drawn to war, and in the context of basically the everything we have seen from the movies, this is some revisionist stuff.

So the Rebellion signed a truce with the remnants of the empire. The most bloody regime imaginable, whose officer corps is compromised mostly of war criminals, and they just let them go. Let them go, rather, with a chunk of the galaxy to govern, or rather genocide and exploit for resources to build massive weapons of mass destruction which are to be turned on the Republic in due course.

This makes no sense. None. Neither side gain from this. Is it just so JJ can make a group called "the resistance" again? It is, isn't it.

>>78257467
>You realize this is just like how the UN tolerates current-world regimes that are awful, right?
The UN's entire goal goal is to maintain peace, not overthrow a specific government.
>>
>>78257390
It's pretty bad. inb4 somebody compares it to the Soviet Union. This doesn't work, because the Soviets fought a war with the West against a common enemy, so they had strong diplomatic ties in the period immediately following WWII. Both West/East were united by a desire to create a stable post-war world. The same dynamic wouldn't exist between a totalitarianism that regards the rebels as illegitimate terrorists and the rebels who are nursing wounds and grudges formed over generations.
>>
>>78257390

According to the EU the Empire collapsed into warring factions. The Republic has a powerful defense fleet that's stronger than the Empire, so by signing a treaty with them they're essentially letting the remains kill themselves off.

Why couldn't they just do that in secret and with a lot of plotting? I mean, that's what the First Order has started to do in TFA
>>
>>78257585
Stalin only agreed to the non-aggression pact because the West refused to deal with Hitler. Stalin had been pleading for an anti-Hitler alliance for a long time. Hitler was seen as a way to contain the Soviets by some powerful people in the West, but then he became an even bigger problem and only then did the West intervene. Molotov-Ribbentrop was self-preservation on Stalin's part and would inevitably collapse. Everybody recognized that. You couldn't have built a Cold War style coexistence on it.
>>
>>78257733

Of course, but you can see how the rest of the galaxy would see this as weakness on the part of the Republic.

>>78257168
What happened at jakku where the empire and New Republic struck a truce? Must have been hardcore for both sides to concede.

>Empire stayed in the Core and Rim, New Republic takes mid Rim and Outer Rim

I call complete bullshit on this. Both sides claim to govern the galaxy- only one can. With the rebellion, can they seriously claim to be champions for democracy and peace whilst Billions suffer under the Imperial rule? And the Empire would never allow itself to lose the Mid and Outer Rim by diplomacy, they'd have to be militarily destroyed before they would compromise like that. And at that point they'd be so weakened as to be vulnerable enough to collapse, so why even bother with a truce?
>>
>>78257811
The First Order is the last remnant left I believe.
>>
>>78257745
The Rebels would know that it how the empire operates. By just letting a section go, they are asking to be attacked down the line in a few years.

The only calculation that makes sense was that the rebels were too weak, and needed to re-stock before expanding again. But the way this is phrased suggests the Rebels don't intend to actually liberate the galaxy, just the bits of it which matter politically to the members of the rebel alliance itself. Hardly the heroes they've been portrayed to be.

It's not cold if you flat out just support them, so much that your opponent KNOWS your doing it. Cold wars are mostly through spies, intelligence etc. At most you have proxy wars, but the Resistance isn't a proxy, its basically an armed wing of the Republic. It loses its value of...whatever its actual purpose is (defeating the First order?)

After Endor, the Empire started falling apart left and right, by about three months later a few of the leaders convene an emergency session to figure out what the fuck they're going to do to try and salvage things (the plot of Aftermath involves this).

At Jakku, the Imperial remnant(s) dedicate a huge portion of their fleet to the battle. It gets rekt hard by the New Republic fleet, losing what is potentially their only remaining SSD.

Lost Stars covered some of the Battle of Jakku, but only just a small portion of it showing an Imperial captain get her ship wrecked and boarded right before it starts to fall to the planet. I'd assume the final book of the Aftermath trilogy will show the battle in more detail.

>III goes at the bottom for me personally just because it's way darker than I think Star Wars should really get (Anakin slaughtering children makes it hard for me to accept his "redemption" in VI

That's why Luke forgiving him is so fantastic. Because Vader thinks he doesn't deserve to be saved. The Emperor believes that he doesn't deserve to be be saved. Most of Luke's allies believe he doesn't deserve to be saved. But Luke does. And that's why he won:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-HFv6Ms1lw
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuPe-ly0BHM
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RFYoZ7H67A

Vader turned himself into a monster because he was trapped by shame and self-loathing. Then his son, who he maimed, frees him.

Also, let me get this straight. An entire planet getting destroyed in a callous act of mass murder is a-okay in your book, while a room full of kids getting killed is going too far? And you have issues with the "Sith Win" movie being dark? What? Did you want sugar and rainbows to flood the stars while the My Little Pony theme blares out ad nauseum?
>>
>>78259267
Not that anon, but when you have the phrase "killing younglings" as a way to cover up "killing children" then you have some seriously dark stuff. My complaint would be that kids were actively marketed towards in Phantom and Clone wars, so the tonal shift was odd. Artistically it makes sense, but it was abrupt.
>>
Why is it that nobody in the movie seems to give a shit about what happened to the Hosnian system? The senate just got wiped out, hundreds of billions of lives were lost. Leia should be going fucking berserk that another Alderaan just happened and nobody seems to care. What the hell man, that's fucked up. I really hope we get a book that deals with the consequences of this event.

I think if someone dropped a rock on Washington DC most people would be ok

Star wars has always been shit with people dealing with death. Han died, Leia moved on WITHIN the same movie, you can find examples of this throughout SW.

Just like when the Death Star destroyed Alderaan in ANH. Leia even lost her family and she didn't seem to care at all. You can't put too much emotion and character development into a 2 hour adventure movie, especially not when it's as fast paced as ANH and TFA.

TFA was too similar to ANH, but it made everything that happened in ANH look better because of newer CG and cinematic ability. I can't wait for the books going over the time skip and the events just after the movie.

Ezra's extreme bursts of power come unbidden in moments of extreme emotion. He's very strong but has very little control, because he started very late by Jedi standards and is burdened by all the problems that come with years of life outside a sheltered temple environment.

THAT makes sense.

Rey suddenly being at least as good with the Force as Obi-Wan was in The Phantom Menace after literal decades of training, not so much.

Just got back from my theater. I loved the movie.

The new cast didnt feel forced and Fin was incredibly good.

The old cast was important but they didnt overshadow the new cast at all. Fin stole every scene he was in.

Plot was a little short but the film did what it needed to. Set itself up for the next films. I honestly left the theater wanting more star wars. I can't believe I have to wait for the next movie to come out.

I want new star wars games/comics/rpgs/everything set in this timeline so bad.

Overall I give the movie an 8 out of 10. I can't wait to see the sequal.
>>
>>78260392
>for some more forced dramatic BS...

It's called good storytelling, you fucking mongoloid. Killing Han was necessary because his arc was finished and new characters like Poe wouldn't get any screen time if Han was still around in Episode VIII. Luke and Leia will die too, sooner or later.

Because the actors are old and going to die at some point.

And besides, they need to make room for the new characters.

One thing I actually do like is the fact that Luke fucked up so incredibly quickly trying to pull together a new Jedi order. The Jedi Order was at its absolute height just before the Clone Wars happened. This barely-trained kid isn't going to restart the whole thing overnight. It's going to take a long time, if the Jedi ever do properly come back at all.

But he isn't the chosen one. His time pasted the second he redeemed Vader.

also Fin is the resident fuck up.

>>78261238
It was lightsaber dueling for noobs. The inexperience of Rey and Finn were obivous, though Rey still managed to get the upper hand on Kylo, probably because she is much stronger in the force than he is. Over all, I felt the battles were more subtle, just like how it was in episode 4, and not over the top like in the prequels. I give it a 7/10.
>>
>>78254043

Yo, I think Han even recognized her. The Falcon being 'stolen' and left in the hands of the same guy who took Rey away from her parents is just too convenient. He wouldn't let some fat alien fucks keep his baby for 30 years without a reason.

I can get that Luke doesn't want to teach new students, but defeating kylo and snoke should be a priority. Billions of sentients died while he was sitting on a rock.
>>
>>78261491
I hope so.
>Squad of evil villains, each with a unique weapon
Is one of my favorite enemy types.

I also hope Snoke retains his fuck-huge size and it isn't just a hologram.

Give me the action figures
>>
>>78261460
>Well except showing how to fuck up Starkiller base.

people only looked to his word only because said he was once there (as a janitor), I bet they could have thought of it themselves considering they were the ones who got past the shield. Finn even says to Han on the base that he has no idea what he is doing, that nothing he said actually had basis on fact.
>>
>>78261512
>Snoke turned out to be a thing

who the fuck thought this name was ok.

he needs some serious moments to seem threatening, even then he'll never be as good as Sheev

KYLO REN!!!

Love the dude so much.

Good movie, feel a little cold from because it's ANH remake but still. And I love all the new characters, I want a damn Poe movie now.

-Star Wars: Da Force a-Wakey novelization by Alan Dean Foster
-Before Da Wakey, shorty tales bout Rey, Finn and Poe-Poe by Greg Rucka

BUT YOUSA ONLY GETTEN DESE DOODOO BOOKS IF YOUSEN REPLY TO DIS POST AND SAYING: "I WANT JAR JAR IN EPISODE 8"

As usual, check the mega... the novelization is already there, for some reason Before the Awakening isn't available just yet but I should be able to add it in the next 30 minutes[/spoilers]
>>
Don't get me wrong, I loved this movie, but I hope they don't make VIII too much like empire. Having Rey rush off, without completing her training, to rematch Ren and get beaten, will make the trilogy feel too much like OT.
>>
>>78261512
If he had shown up to help wouldn't the First Order have destroyed the system he's in? He probably didn't want to endanger other people.
>>
>>78261553
fuck that bugs me too.
>>
>>78261585
Cool, thanks.
>>
>>78261553

His name is Lor San Tekka.

As far as anyone can tell, he's a brand new character.

There are theories that he may be a very old, very discouraged Caleb Dume aka Kanan Jarrus under a new pseudonym, largely based on the fact that if you wanted to make an animated character who looked like a young Max von Sydow, it would look almost exactly like Kanan, down to the eyebrows.

Fool, I already wanted Jar Jar in Episode 8
>>
>>78261553
Lor San Tekka. He is an old friend of Leia and belonged to a group that revered the Jedi.
>>
>>78261531
Yeah, but he pointed out the one structure on the planet that needed to be destroyed.

>>78261608
More like not sending capital ships to orbitally bombard the shieldless base.

She really should've been the one who fights Finn on Takodana, not that no-name stormtrooper with his baton.

>>78261644
has a brother that looks exactly like him and does the same job.

>>78261602

you faggots know the visual dictionary leaked with an explanation of his character?

he's just a jedi groupie, retard.
>>
>>78261644
He does some cool shit, not really much else
>>
>>78261664
Yeah that was an odd fight that really had no purpose other than showing they have anti-lightsaber weapons in a jedi-less galaxy?
>>
>>78261602
MSW reported 3 separate explanations for him:
1. He's a character who watches over Rey (or Kira as she was known then)
2. He's a Clone Wars veteran and an old version of a character who appeared in the prequels
3. He's Boba Fett, or rather he's the man who kills Boba Fett and steals his identity, now old and retired
>>
>>78261644
Gets captured by Kylo Ren
Gets broken out by Finn and escapes with him.
"dies"
Comes back in a X-Wing and does flying that makes Anakin look like a bitch ass podracer.
Delivers the killing blow to The thing 20 times bigger than the Death Star

Least screen time of the new main cast, most based.
>>
Filoni says this season finale is gonna be the best and worst we could hope for. That does not sound good for Ahsoka at all.

Also, is it me or is the chick from Rebels Recon getting hotter each episode? :o
>>
>>78261707
The more you get to know someone the more you want to fuck them.
>>
>>78261644
On the first half he's literally the male version of Leia.

Gets the location of Luke and gives it to BB-8.

Captured and tortured by the First Order, but only Kylo Ren made him crack about the location

Has a ridiculously great chemistry with Finn. He actually made up with the name Finn since he didn't like the Stormtrooper codename.

Disappears in Jakku, Finn and BB-8 thought he was dead.

Reappears again on Maz Kanata's planet, leading an assault against Kylo and the FO troops.

Destroys Starkiller Base.

Should have a bigger role in VIII now that Han is dead.

Being in this thread is like being on a minefield. Constant watch for Force Awakens spoilers.

Can we talk about how Nien Nunb was not only in the movie, but how he got a promotion to Red Leader, AND died a hero's death (sadly offscreen)

Fucking Resistance doesn't treat their aliens allies well
>>
>>78261764
He was at the line-up at the end when the Falcon leaves D'Qar.
>>
>>78261360
He was in Ep7 as additional voices, it made me squeal a little

Poe is the real hero. Finn and Rey were great and all but POE.

Well, he hinted at a confrontation between Ahsoka and Vader, the fight everybody wants to see. So I think that's gonna happen, which doesn't sound good for Ahsoka at all.

Really? They showed his face only at the very beginning of the fight, hell that unnamed chick gave us play by plays of what was happening to red squadron

ANYONE WANT TO WATCH FORCE AWAKENS WITH ME?

i have no franz. :(
>>
>>78261832

No that complaint seems pretty common, reading things on other sites. People wanted at least SOME info on what the fuck was going on with all that. And that blowing up the Republic Capital doesn't really work as well as it should because we don't really know anything about the New Republic beyond a couple of lines.
>>
>>78261231
She's probably not dead, she got dumpstered before the rebel attack even began so there's plenty of time for her to have escaped. It definitely hurts her intimidation factor that she got fucking clowned on though

So since in the opening crawl it titled Luke, THE LAST JEDI, this means Ezra is kill

I only want, like, one conversation that sets up what exactly is going on with the galactic power and then that's it.

Like, just how big is the First Order? Was the Starkiller all they had in terms of a Motherbase or do they have other large outposts?

I think they got shoved into a corner more than anything else, but it still felt bullshit to me.

>>78261832
I miss Wedge, but Poe's a damn good replacement. Poe>Rey>Finn in my opinion

>>78261764
It was awesome. Honestly my heart leaped a little when I saw that little guy and I'm surprised it made me as happy to see him as it did

Snoke was obviously not on starkiller, which begs the question of where the fuck was he

Yeah just some quick like "We have blah % of the galaxy supporting us" and someone to be Leia when the NuAllderian gets blown
And didn't the first order win already? Like blowing up the star system of your enemy is a hell of a thing.

I was holding my breath waiting for them to turn the corner and find her covered in muck carrying a machine gun.

Yeah she's probably still alive and will be used as Finn's rival and "link" to the First Order.

>7>anything

at least their villains were intimidating and not emo teenagers throwing tantrums.
>>
>>78261947
>Kylo fucking up part of the Star Destroyer because he didn't get his way isn't a tantrum.
>>
>>78261932
The book confirms it's a Kaleesh mask. It's pretty vague about what exactly he is, but given that his body is a pretty normal-looking human shape he's probably not a Kaleesh himself.
>>
>>78261909

Well no, the Republic has far more than one Star System, we already know they also control major worlds like Naboo, Taris, Coruscant, etc. So they should be battered but still around unless they were retarded and had their entire military there because plot stupidity.
>>
>>78261915
Man, I hope we get more bounty hunters/mercs/outer rim bullshit in the future movies/spin offs.

Those were always the best parts of Star Wars.

>>78261954
it is. thats what im complaining about. he was worse than fucking episode 1 anakin.

Does the audibook for TFA release today or is it January like the physical book?
>>
>>78261962
Was that not Coruscant that got Kablooied?
>>
>>78261967
he should have thrown none.
>>
>>78261984
No, it was the Hosnian system.
>>
>>78261984
Chandrilla I believe, it's the new capital world.
>>
>>78261972

Episode 1 Anakin never threw a single tantrum and was basically a happy kid for almost the entire movie except for the scene where he left home.
>>
>>78261984

No it was Hosnian Prime, Coruscant isn't the main capital of the Republic anymore in a show of good faith to the Mid and Outer Rim systems or something like that. Now the capital is changed every few years by democratic vote.

So yeah Coruscant is fine, it's just not as important as it once was though I presume it's still the economic center of the galaxy.
>>
Ok so here is how I feel about the film

+ Kylo Ren is not a Vader clone and is well acted.
+All of the new three were well cast
+The humor, at level which Lucas could never achieve.
+Excellent use of special effects and practical effects.
+Mostly subtle in it's nods to the first films.
+Finn and Poe scenes
+Kylo Ren and Hux scenes.
+The Lightsaber fight felt really good. Tense and fast while feeling natural.
+Poe making the Skywalker family look like shit pilots.

Meh parts
Rey's desert life is boring as shit.And is even more boring to watch
Kylo's temper tantrums almost border on silly
Finn is just a bit to thirsty for that scavenger ass
Snoke and Luke cocktease is going to make this a long couple of fucking years.

Parts I did not like
-Starkiller base out of fucking nowhere, btw it's a souped up Death Star and can take out whole systems.
-need a companion book to know that the First Order blew up the capital world for the New Republic, the whole fucking senate is dead, but you won't know that unless you buy the book.
-Some faggot on agar.io spoiled the big shocker.
-Phasma is the definition of wasted effort on a cool design.
-R2-D2 wakes up, for no raisin
-The ship scene with the two gangs Han swindled, while fun, contributes nothing to the film.

Chandrila is actually the capital where the Senate is in the new canon. It might be in the Hosnian system though.
