Wait, people dislike the film? (Just rejoining the thread after a week blackout)

There are things I didn't like, sure. The ending was balls. Can't cocktease people like that knowing there's a 2 year wait. Was filmed shitty, and the location was ass.

And I didn't like that the plot was just ANH all over again.

And Maz Kanata's castle was a huge disappointment, felt like a last ditch attempt to say "look at our practical effects" despite Jakku already executing them perfectly.

But asides from that, I'm just in a state of bliss right now, I loved the movie.

So next December we have rouge one. So any further Star Wars movies/shows will be in the official canon correct?

And yes, all future movies are canon, along with the books, comics, and cartoons, unless they're explicitly non-canon. Generally, if it has the Lucasfilm Story Groups approval, and it isn't some parody like the Lego spin offs, then chances are it is canon.

Honest question here.
With no footage of Luke except the hand on R2, and everyone wondering where he was, how did everyone not expect TFA to end on the cliffhanger of them finding him? The way it ended is exactly how I expected it to.

Post predictions for the next episodes
The Knights of Ren aren't actually a thing. They were fabricated by Snoke specifically to appeal to Ben as a third option and indoctinate him. They were then 'slaughtered' to condition Ben to the dark side.
>>
>>78269183
It's frustrating as fuck, the OT heroes apparently just jerked off for 30 years.

The movie and new canon would have been saved if Rey found Luke in a hidden temple while a dozen or two dozen new jedi watched from the shadows.
>>
>>78269158

one of my friends thought Ren was Revan when he first saw the trailer and after he realized it wasn't, he thought they were just trying to copy things in order to pander to fanboys.

He's probably right. The movie can only rip off other Star Wars products and filling the rest with generic genre tropes.

fuck this movie hard;

Will the other Jedi apprentices that appear in the flashback make into the next movies as Kylo ren special squad?

>>78269043
>felt like a last ditch attempt to say "look at our practical effects" despite Jakku already executing them perfectly.
Felt like what George has always said he wanted the cantina in ANH to look like to me. Personally I loved the shit out of the practical effects. At first I was a little unsettled because it looked different than how Star Wars has looked, but when I realized that was because filming tech has come miles since what George used to film the OT, and JJ wasn't making a cartoon with people walking around in it, it all made sense and a wave of comfy washed over me. There was an actual moment when I realized the stormtroopers were actual people with actual practical suits on, and not guys in mop cap suits that had their suits painted on, and the realization left me with a wonderful feeling.
>>
I'm not sure that anyone has noticed this extra level of poetry.

Finn's call number is FN-2187

2187 is the prisoner block that Leia was locked in on the Death Star

Bravo JJ
>>
>>78269152
I expected him to show up towards the end, everyone did. But one shot, and then an awkward silence and then end? Fuck that, it was shitty. I think it's actually the worst ending of any star wars movie by far.

Think about it, compare it to all the others.

>Qui-Gon Funeral, Sheev foreshadowing, Fun celebration (Ok this one is sorta lame too)
>Sheev looking over the Clone Army, Anakin and Padme marry on Naboo (Beautiful imagery for a somewhat meh movie)
>Vader born, Death Star construction, Padme's Funeral, the Twins are taken to their homes, Binary Sunset
>Yavin IV Celebration, the classic
>Bittersweet ending overlooking the beautiful Galaxy
>Galaxy Celebrating the Death Star II's destruction

And then you get;

>Rey shows up on a weird seemingly inhospitable island and awkwardly stares at Luke in silence for 20 seconds while shaking as she offers him a lightsaber

Once the "omg Luke" factor is gone, the ending will be meaningless. Imagine watching it in 10 years. The ending is just simply lame. No feel good, no bittersweet, no sad, no nothing, just... Luke. And like I said, once the next movies are out, the ending wont even have any impact at all upon rewatching it.

TFA, while a spectacular movie, had the lamest fucking ending imaginable.
>>
>>78269203
shame Phasma jobbed so hard I think even Worf felt a sudden pain in his heart a multiverse away.
>>
>>78269148
Yes. That was a nice relationship and it even contributed to Kylo's character that everyone in the movie hates.
>>
>>78269152
>With no footage of Luke except the hand on R2, and everyone wondering where he was, how did everyone not expect TFA to end on the cliffhanger of them finding him? The way it ended is exactly how I expected it to.

The only thing about the reveal that surprised me is that they didn't end the movie with a shot of Luke's face. They had a close up his face, then switched to this shaky circling shot of them on the island with Luke's back to us.

It should have been reversed. We should have seen Rey confronting some mysterious figure, only for them to turn around and reveal they're Luke.

THEN cue end credits.

>>78269183

The Jedi were killed off in A New Hope, so it was must they be killed off here because neckbeards complained about too many lightsabers in the prequels.
>>
>>78269197
Sweet.
>>
>>78269205
-Rey is related to either Luke or Kylo
-Snoke is the Emperor reborn
-More of the OT cast is killed off one by one.
-Another pointless musical interlude


Really grasping at straws on that one.

>>78269232
Nice.

>>78269254
Yeah, that sounds like something I might have done if I were retarded. Good thing I'm just stupid.
>>
Snoke was some awful hobbit tier CGI. How was that approved
>>
>>78269201
Yeah, they kinda half assed the progression of the Galaxy to make it more of a 4th OT movie than the 1st of a new trilogy.

Say what you will about them, but the Galaxy during the prequels felt different, and we saw it change and degenerate into what we have in the OT.

And now everything feels like it hit a standstill.
>>
>>78269201
I didn't really get the political map.

The new republic helps the resistence, but not publicly...so that means First order is some kind of a legitimate goverment that rules certain of the galaxy and thats why the new republic doesn't confront them directly...but then FO openly shoots fire to new republic?

What was the point of being "neutral" if they knew FO could fuck them any moment?
>>
>>78269233
>Once the "omg Luke" factor is gone, the ending will be meaningless. Imagine watching it in 10 years. The ending is just simply lame. No feel good, no bittersweet, no sad, no nothing, just... Luke.

It's more like Empire Strikes Back. Rey has replaced Han- just like Lando replaced him. Everybody says their goodbyes and Rey goes to meet Luke, whom she encounters in a remote and sweeping vista.

Also, in the first shot of Luke you have since the end of return of the Jedi, we see that he's pretty much become Old Ben Kenobi, which brings things full circle.
>>
>>78269254
but that's dumb though, Luke should have trained fucking SOMEONE.

If Rey turns out to be Luke's daughter, that'll make Ben her cousin.

>>78269282
Hell, bring in fucking Kyle Katarn from the EU ffs. Hell he even did in Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
>>
I'm really concerned that the sequel trilogy is just going to be a rehash of the original trilogy. They are definitely going that path with Kylo Ren being Darth Vader 2.0. and Snoke being Sheev 2.0. - I can already see a Kylo redemption arc where he overthrows his master. I hope they do something different, but I'm concerned.
>>
>>78269290
...and now I feel dumb. Guess I'm retard after all.

Pardon me while I punish myself by prolonged exposure to Jar Jar.
>>
>>78269277
I think the New Republic is supposed to be pacifistic while funding the Resistance as a proxy army to keep the peace and political face.

The First Order is just the Imperial Remnant in the Outer Rim.

While the Cold War idea is neat, I much rather prefer the aggressive, confident New Republic of the old EU.
>>
>>78269272
>Say what you will about them, but the Galaxy during the prequels felt different, and we saw it change and degenerate into what we have in the OT.

The prequels still feel too removed from the OT. We saw changes and degeneration, but it didn't feel like we were going

At least not until I saw the Tantive IV and that classic interior.

That's what the prequels should have looked like in Epsiode 1.
>>
Some deleted scenes may have been found, they have a lot more flashbacks of Luke and Kylo. I hope they make some DVD bonus section

Guys, I loved the movie, I really did, but uhh... Can we just talk about the fact that;

The soundtrack wasnt that great? I think it may be the worst soundtrack of all the movies. NOTHING of the new tracks stood out to me, except maybe (what i think is) Rey's theme. I would leave Star Wars movies with the music ingrained in my head after the first viewing, but this is the first time I can barely remember any of it. None of it stood out at all, it was all so soft.
>>
>>78269183
More than disappointed. Unless it turns out he managed to fully train some Jedi and they were offworld when the Knights of Ren attacked, I'm pretty pissed that they had Luke's efforts to rebuild the Order be undone so swiftly.
>>
>>78269272

If you watch each prequel carefully, you'll notice there's distinct shifts in design. Like things feel like they become grittier each episode as the Clone War gets closer/rages on.

>>78269313

Isn't Finn just a Kyle Katarn rip off?
>>
>>78269353
And I guess the designer of the Starkiller was an apprentice of the Death Star chief design
>>
>>78269351
But then who mother?

Leia? Mara? Maz?

Alternate ending:
Rey's mother is Chewbacca
>>
>>78269351
That could easily happen. And again basically copy V in that matter.
>>
Phasma was a perfect allusion to Boba Fett.

She was a in some cool armor and completely jobbed.
>>
>>78269358
Yeah I agree, the OST was weak as fuck. John Williams must not be up to it anymore or barely had a hand in it. All of the prequels had new iconic tracks and themes but this barely anything

TPM -> Duel of the Fates
AoTC -> Across the Stars (how that shitty movie had such good music is beyond me)
RoTS -> Battle of the Heroes
>>
>>78269339
Maz not force sensitive fags BTFO
>>
>>78269389
Mrs Skywalker was killed on the assault on the new jedi academy. Betting she was some rebel pilot as well
>>
>>78269232
There was even much better self-referencing "poetry" (foreshadowing actually) in the movie. Poe literally said "as long as there's light, there's hope". When Han faces his son, Kylo's face has red light on the left and blue light on the right, produced by the sun that was being absorbed. Then the blue light disappeared and by the time when Kylo's face wasn't bluish anymore, he killed Han. The light in him disappeared, just like the light of the sun.

JJ is a pretty good director. That scene was superb and also an example for "poetry" done right.
>>
>>78269339
>>https://www.reddit.com/r/StarWars/comments/3xd9zo/leaked_scene_list_points_to_what_was_cutchanged/


It looks like from these that Maz was a force user. Not a Jedi, but still a Force user.

I can maybe see why they dropped the idea. Might have been too confusing to explain to casual audiences, and the film didn't waste much time with explaining shit.

Plus, she was already a little Yoda-y.
>>
>>78269407
Imagine if they recanonized Mara Jade just to kill her off in a flashback or exposition
>>
>>78269413

Also, when Fin and Rey enter the same structure, there's a beam of light that comes in behind them and illuminates Han and Kylo on the walkway.

Pottery.
>>
>>78269430
The tears would be delicious.
>>
>>78269358
I agree, there were now stand out tracks by John this time. If you gotta give the prequels credit, is that each one had at least one fucking great song (Duel of the Fates, Episode II love Theme, Battle of Heroes). In VII nothing really stands out. I guess John is losing his luster or something.

I dunno how they can be called underwhelming. Not to your taste maybe, but underwhelming is far from what they are. The blaring reprise of the love theme before Anakin and Padme go into the execution arena was really really powerful.
>>
>>78269233
Anon, I won't speak to the quality of the ending. That's not what I asked about. I don't think as much a problem as you do but I would argue that's because I expected it.
Clearly something happened that was so traumatic to him he exiled himself and abandoned the responsibility that had been placed on him by Yoda. He wasn't going to feel something in the Force, and come out of hiding to be a deus ex machina. He was always going to need to be saught out and found, and the enabling of the protagonists to be able to do this was clearly going to be the plot of TFA. Personally, I got a little anxious while watching because I was almost expecting it to end a la Empire with Rey and Chewie flying off to go find Luke while Leia watches which I think would be a better ending more in line with the precedent of the other saga films like you described. There is no way they weren't going to show Luke though. With the entire plot being about seeking the means to find him, and them acquiring those means, there needed to be a payoff for their efforts. I could see them saving that for VIII, but can you imagine how much we'd be bitching if Luke never showed up? It kind of was a no win scenario in the sense that you either needed to give the fans what they want, or remain consistent with precedent. TFA is clearly a movie about giving fans what they want though, so we know which they chose.
What I'm going to be curious to see is if VIII picks up right there, and includes Rey trying to draw Luke out of his exile, as well as Snoke finishing Ben's training, or if it's going to cut forward in time and have Rey be trained in the Force, and Ben upgraded, and potentially recostumed since he left his helmet behind.
Also, will Finn go full android? Kind of looked like Ben may have rekt his back.

I feel like I'd enjoy the movie much more if Rey was played by Christie and what's-her-face was the glorified shiny background prop instead.

It wasn't bad but it could've been better, I liked Finn and Maz Kanata much more than I've expected, Poe is decent if a bit generic, Hux is pretty amazing and I hope be ends up trying to stage his own coup at some point.

>>78269558
Completely disagree mate.

5 = 4 > 3 = 7 > 6 > 1 > 2

5 and 4 dont need an explanation. 7 is a great Star Wars movie, but loses points for it's rehashed plot that leaves us, not really anywhere new. 3 is a fantastic climactic experience. 6 is good, but loses it in the middle, and the ending is SLIGHTLY neutered by the fact that it is no longer the true ending.

Then 1 > 2 because I love Maul/Podracing more than the stuff in AotC (although theres many things in 2 that I still like. I dont dislike any of the movies)

I enjoyed the final duel in TFA more than the duel in ROTJ.

it was far more brutal and well choreographed, but wasn't too flashy like in the prequels.

The soundtrack was a bit underwhelming, mostly because there was only one leitmotif. I really like "torn apart" though. It fits Kylo's cruelty and inner conflict. Jedi steps is also pretty good.

>Episode 7 pretty much follows a good majority of the post Episode 6 EU
>Episode 7 essentially did what Episode 3 does to the Clone Wars EU stuff where only a few things are retconned while the rest works fine with the movie
So why the fuck did they retcon the EU then? It was a licensing thing wasn't it? Disney didn't want to buy the fuck loads of books and whatnot from the old EU so they just made it non canon. I'm sure there was some push in Lucasfilm to try out a story group because they thought it would be fun too, but I bet the money reasons came first and afterwards Pablo/Chee/etc were like 'fuck, I guess we need to make an official canon now'.

Don't get me wrong, I'm liking a lot of the new canon, I just really don't see a point in it existing though when their reasoning for retconning ALL of it was 'Episode 7 won't work with it' when Episode 7 only contradicts SOME of it.

I think the only reason they've kept the mystery of her origins a mystery is because she's not related to anyone we have any connection to. Their relevancy won't come up until later. At least that's the only reason I can think ofwhy theyu should do that. Because if it's just "She's Han/Luke's kid" then all the little cut aways from letting us know are just for the sake of mystery and, as such, lazy story telling.
>>
>>78269558

That sounds about right to me.
>>
>>78269290
How would that work out? Rey's being abandoned on Jakku, I mean. Maybe she was kidnapped as a baby? Maybe Luke left her a la Kenobi theory of dumping kids on a desert planet to protect her from being found? Clearly her connection to the force, piloting skills, and mechanical skills scream that she is a Skywalker, but her being left on Jakku in the manner she was would kind of be a fuck up on whomever's part left her there unless there was a Kenobi in the shadows keeping an eye on her that we don't know about. Maybe Max von Sydow's character?

The movie was pretty good though I'm more excited for Rogue One and them doing something more original in Episode VIII now that they've got every rehash they can think of out of the way.

But what in the fuck was this motherfucker that pops up out of the sand at the end of the introduction? Seriously that shit gave me flashbacks to weirdly specific nightmares I had as a kid.

Also it seems like it talks to BB-8 in something more sophisticated than animal noises. Was it sentient? Was it totally chill with just watching a whole village of people being slaughtered?

Biggest flaw of the movie for me. It was very bland and uninspired IMO. Perhaps I was too focused on what was happening to really listen to it, but there were so many moments I was expecting Jedi themes, or nods to the Imperial March that never came and left me wishing they had. Even TPM have Duel of the Fates, but there was nothing memorable about what we got that I can remember. Maybe John is losing it?

It wouldn't have gotten as far as it ever did. Hux is running what remains of the institutions that Palpatine created pretty much from nothing. Without Palpatine's manipulation and force ex machina, there would be no Imperial fleet.

But none of them are terrible, or bad. It's all fairly close. Honestly all but one of the ">" are a formality. Only episode one deserves any kind of separation, and even then it's the difference between 7.5/10 and 7/10. I like all the movies for their own reasons, sue me.

This movie was basically Disney/JJ going/Everyone else saying, "See! We can still make a classic Star Wars movie! Will you get off our backs already?" Hopefully now that they've proven the point, they can explore the setting's potential a bit more.

What were your theater reactions like?

I heard excited cheering for "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away" and the Star Wars logo. There was some concern over "Luke Skywalker has vanished" - excitement for the Millennium Falcon, applause for Han and Chewie, and then after that the audience just fell dead. No applause at the end, just dead silence for the latter half of the movie - and in fact I saw people walk out of the theater before the credits.

It was cool for the first few minutes of the movie cause of the nods to the old films but goddamn it got old by the end.

>>78270458
Applause for the logo, Han, Rey force pulling the lightsaber, and the ending. Laughter for lots of other bits. When the first reveal of "your father, Han Solo" happened, one woman in the back said "What?" all hushed, but since everyone else was quiet we all heard her.

They can also be done via movies. Don't worry. Your Mary Saga will always be the special butterfly compared to all the others, but movies allow a completely valid method of storytelling that may be the best fit for certain stories. As for their becoming a non event? In what sense? Pop culture? So you're saying I won't need to wait in line after buying a ticket to see a new movie on opening day? Thank fucking Christ. So long as I'm enjoying them, I really wouldn't give a fuck. Realistically though, only a goober really thinks Disney isn't going to do anything to devalue their IP. They're in the money making business, and diminishing an IP's luster isn't good for making money.

A force user letting go and overcoming fear is a powerful thing. Throughout the series from Obi-wan, Luke, Kanan, Ezra and even Anakin, we see this. Rey did the same thing when Kylo had her cornered and in a saber lock. Aggression and pain will never be as powerful in the end.

I'm pretty sure that's a separate species similar to lthorian, so not even that counts.

According to the visual dictionary he was an Ithorian.

Anyone else hoping for Zuckuss and 4LOM in part VIII or IX? I'd like to see the entire bounty hunter squad but since Bossk and Dengar were in CW already I'd imagine they'll be dead by TFA and it's hard to imagine old man Boba not being retired.

It's hard to imagine him anything other than dead, because that's his status currently in the new canon.

Boba is dead. I want to see Bossk and IG-88 being bad motherfuckers.

>>78270458
I had the average-fan fans. They (me included because I'm not above these things when everyone is doing it and I find it FUN) clapped during everything that was old that showed up. Falcon, Han, Darth Helmet, ect. Only one women was super annoying, who of course had to sit next to me, but I won't fault her too bad cause she seemed like a bigger fan than anyone else, but she cheered and swore at the screen a lot. When Ray Jedi Mind tricked the Trooper she yelled out BYE FALISSA. I don't know what that was referance to, but the rest of the theater cracked up? Then she yelled out YOU MOTHER FUCKER FUCK! At Kylo when he did the thing. Her boyfriend next to her said, babe, SHH! There are kids in here.

Other than that, a few people cheered out for Akbar, everyone laughed at all the right moments. They laughed at anything BB8 did. Group of girls behind me couldn't help go "awww" whenever he did anything super cute, like bumping into R2D2. I did too. Fucking cute robots...

There's a line in TFA that makes me think I know what series they'll do after rebels.
The lines about Kylo being trained by Luke, killing the other Jedi, new Jedi order, ect. I think it'll be Luke finding Ahsoka, Kanan, and Ezra and starting the new Jedi Academy pre episode 7. Eventually Not-Jacen shows up and at the end kills everyone.

Zuckuss is probably dead if the Gand lifespans are canon still. I hope we see them in Rebels though. IG-88 as well.

I loved that as far as I can tell, Kylo Ren pretty much just wore the mask because he thought it was cool. To me, it seemed like he wasn't a Sith, he was a Sith fanboy. Remember all the arguing about whether his light saber was shitty or not? It makes perfect sense if you imagine him as a pimply, wannabe goth kid: he doesn't care that it's crap, he just thinks it looks awesome. And to his credit, he's right, it looks pretty rad.

I think we might see the entire crew in Rogue One, though. Maybe some of the CW ones, even, I'd imagine Cad or Embo were active for a while afterwards and there was that scrapped arc with Cad and Boba in CW, wasn't there?

Because the audience needs to be reminded that he has a robotic hand.

Just got back from TFA.

It was wonderful, very wonderful. The characters were all great, the action sequences were intense, the plot was predictable but good. It was a modern Star Wars movie that was actually good. It manages to surpass Revenge of the Sith, but IMO, doesn't quite get into OT territory.

Hoping Rian can hit it out of the park with Episode 8!

Can someone explain why the 'Resistance' and the 'New Republic' were two separate things? Everything about how these two work is my only major story gripe with the film because there's next to no exposition on what they are or are even doing beyond the resistance apparently being the only force against the First Order. The Republic doesn't seem to be doing shit and has its own fleet, but wouldn't it logically be led by the Rebels after Jedi? Why did Leia leave it than instead of just leading it and a new actual fleet against the remnants of the empire? Why did the resistance's entire fleet compromise these 20 x-wings instead of any of the capital ships shown in Jedi?

It really bothers me because I don't even understand why we're supposed to care about the big dumb superweapon blowing up the Republic solar system, and it's so blase just how little thought is put into this one part of the story. Even with how little info the OT gave us about Alderaan we were invested in Leia's connection to the planet, and her despair at its destruction shone through well, but here Leia and the resistance are just like 'oh fuck, better hurry up or we're next!' despite billions more people probably dying from this.

Overall though the movie was still good, and as a whole movie was better than Jedi (while not reaching Jedi's highest points however).

The republic would rather not engage in another war so they signed a treaty allowing the Empire remnants to fuck off in the corner and stay quiet. The resistance is against this and wants them gone but it has the backing of the republic in secret. Leia has also been tarnished and suffers a bad reptuation from those who want to ignore the FO and just get on with life. I agree though that it was very rushed over and ill explained. I don't want to have to rely on extra books to get the information

>Empire starts arguing over power.
>Jakku happens a year later.
>New Republic and Empire make a treaty to end the war. The Empire can't have an army or Star Destroyers. Mon Mothma is the new chancellor for the beginning of this age and they end up voting on a new chancellor and capital planet every few years.

>>78271458
New Republic is a legitimate government with its own territory separate from the First Order. Resistance is an armed insurgency against First Order rule within First Order territory that is receiving covert aid from the New Republic.

New Republic is USA. Resistance are Contras. Next movie we might get Bay of Pigs.

Fucking this, the prequels plot sucked because there was too much information and all the things that would actually make you care about the world and characters are in EU content that's often an over complicated mess. Wasn't the point of erasing it making it so that these new films could stand on their own with the EU being purely supplementary instead of needed to understand the basic conflict?

I believe so, yes. I imagine a big part of the rest of the trilogy is about Luke training Rey and along the way finding in himself the hope and confidence that he clearly seems to have lost after Kylo Ren went to the dark side and killed everyone. But we still don't actually know the full story on that and what led to it. It's easy to speculate that Luke will sacrifice himself, but I bet by the end of the trilogy a new Jedi Order will be founded, possibly with Rey leading it if Luke sacrifices himself at any point.

I think the implication is that until the events of the movie, the New Republic and First Order were in a kind of cold war situation, with the Republic essentially funding the Resistance as a separate group of rebels working within the first order's territory rather than being in all out war with them. Hux hints at that in his speech. Kind of like the USA funding the Mujahideen to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan because they knew getting involved themselves would mean WW3.

Of course, that plan doesn't really work out for them when the First Order know what's going on and decide to perform a decapitation strike on the Republic with their brand new super weapon. I guess a new STAR WARS™ has begun.

Wow this explains quite a bit, why was there not a single bit of throwaway dialogue to at least imply any of this?

>New Republic and Empire make a treaty to end the war. The Empire can't have an army or Star Destroyers.
>Leia gets pissed and starts the Resistance to fight against the First Order.

This interests me especially because I was curious as to why the First Order only had one Star Destroyer. I really would've appreciated some throwaway lines from people like General Hux saying 'now we can continue the war against the Republic and build out fleet backup!' and Leia saying 'the Republic's full of cowards, so we're low on ships and support' or something. Not much in practice, but it really would've helped the world of the film since again, it felt like there was too little exposition compared to even the OT.
>>
>>78271605
>The First Order values it's cadets rather than treating them as canon fodder

I like this, it adds weight to Kylo and the other stormtroopers yelling "Traitor."

The First Order is trying to do away with the personal gain system that the empire had in place.

So, I think Poe is a deep spy for the First Order/Snoke, or was replaced by a clone.

I was, all the opening crawl said was that the Republic and Resistance are two separate things without saying why Leia left the Republic or that there was a peace treaty between the Republic and the First Order. Hux's speech I don't remember as much but I don't recall him stating 'after this peace we were forced to make, we shall continue the war' or whatever, he just talked about destroying the Republic in very broad terms. I really liked that scene though otherwise because the speech and the Hitler salute the Stormtroopers did were the cheesiest thing in the film.

>>78271458
The New Republic is a governing body for the parts of the empire that the resistance liberated in the past, with its own grand navy based out of a single system.

The Resistance is the same old Rebellion Resistance who did not chooses to end the fight once the empire was broken, but still fights to anhilate the main remaining fragment, the remnant that is the New Order in the Outer Rim.

The New Republic does not want to fight the First Order yet if at all, just having left a brutal period of subjugation and a short war that saw entire planets vaporized, so the covertly fund The Resistence to keep the First Order in check.

Not covertly enough, or in check enough, it turns out.

According to the books Aftermath and Lost Stars, the Rebels set up the New Republic and the senate on Chandrila but after wrecking the Empire hard at Jakku, a treaty is signed that basically splits the galaxy in half with the Empire still controlling Coruscant but neither side engaged in open war anymore. Mon Mothma literally dissolves the military and leaves every planet in the New Republic to form their own defense militias, essentially the same as it was before the Clone Wars. This angers many of the military leaders who feel the war should continue because the Empire is still a threat, so it would seem some went off on their own to continue operating like the Rebel Alliance. Meanwhile, the majority of the Imperial Fleet/military decides to go sneak off and hide somewhere far away and try to rebuild in secret. The only thing I'm unclear about there is whether or not the Empire as a whole agreed to that plan or if, who I'm assuming is Snoke, decided to go rogue and create his own splinter faction from the military force he was able to assemble, leaving the actual Empire nearly defenseless.
