I haven't seen the last one since some asshat revealed the ending. I'll get it, but I'll sit there and wait for him to die. Thanks for ruining the movie asshole.

It's not a sequel to the force awakens tho, it's a spin off you don't need to watch ep vii to understand what's happening

No, I think that annoying alarm sound in the trailer clinched it for me. I hate sounds like that and would probably seize at some point.

Banned everything Star Wars until I can get an official HD copy of the original trilogy in its original theatrical cut.

I am going to see it. Awesome. Okay...

Mark Hamel at the end of the trailer? Did anyone else see that or was it a personal type ad? I don't know why I found his brooding silence so funny.

I will see it, but I'll wait until it comes out on BluRay. I don't know how I feel about these spin-offs.

At this point, they need to just stop. Disney is the epitome of a fascist corporation looking to do anything to get every last nickel. Star Wars is a money-making tool used to line the pockets of J.J. Abrams and rich Hollyweird actors. The ingenious brainchild of George Lucas has been sold out to a corporate megamonster. (This coming from a Republican.)

Same @deathsheep, I feel that it could also help explain things in the new trilogy (Rey perhaps being Obi-Wan's granddaughter, which would make for an interesting story. It would be the grandson of Anakin vs the granddaughter of Obi-Wan.).

04/07/16 10:27 pm

That's what I mean between 3 and 4, Qui Gon's spirit sort of came back from the underworld and he trained Obi Wan on Tatooine

There were only 3 official Star Wars movies as far as I'm concerned.

I think there was some fan-made stuff with a kid and a cartoon rabbit named Jar Jar in the 90s or something? Then there was a Disney parody last year. It was pretty funny, but I don't consider it cannon

DeathSheep Michigan
04/07/16 2:37 pm

Ya, Harrison ford did want to be killed off, but it's not the "obvious" reason. Hans death was a pivotal point in the story line and what allows kylo ren to descend farther into the dark side, like when anakin killed count dooku in episode 2.

For some reason I didn't have any interest in it. I like Star Wars but this one didn't seem like Star Wars to me. I watched the commercials for it and it came across more like Star Trek. When I found out who the director was it made more sense lol. I only watched the 1,2,3 because I was young and dumb. The Star Wars movie series should have ended at number 6 in my opinion.

That was called the prequels. They have a chance to gain it back with these spin offs. Especially Rogue One because the Rebellion era is the sweet spot of Star Wars.

Eventually probably, but won't be going out of my way to see it. It'll eventually be included in some DISH weekend-free-movie-channels line up & I'll have nothing better to do/watch, but Disney is going to ruin the franchise in the first 2 years.

Count on Disney (these days) to pound something into the ground until no one ever wants to see any of it again. Really ppl, couldn't even wait one full year to let everyone digest the last over-hyped campaign where you literally couldn't watch *anything* without seeing some Star Wars tie-in, for months!?!

Rehashed plot, unrealistic characters (some teen girl knows the millennium falcon better than Han Solo and Chewbacca? Lol k.). Whiny emo goth villains. Pointless deaths. Etc

DeathSheep Michigan
04/07/16 12:09 pm

So, you looked at the surface and decided that it was shit basically. About the plot. You could honestly say ever episode is rehashed from a previous. Along with most sequel
/prequel set ups. That's how the connect as a series. The characters? Nothing unrealistic really. Rey obviously understands starships, she takes them apart for a living and built the speeder she uses from scratch with her own hands. She doesn't know the millennium falcon any better, she just simply understands the ships ad k owns what was done to it after it was stolen from Han.

Every single main villain has been Whiney in their teenage and younger years, just look at Anakin/early Vader. Kyle ten is young and doesn't have control of his powers. The dark side swells with anger and hate and when not controlled, looks exactly like Kyle ten and Anakin/early Vader (hell, even late Vader)

And what deaths were so pointless it's worth pointing out?

DeathSheep Michigan

Yay for typing quickly and not being able to proof-read.

Obviously it's Kylo Ren* and then a few other typos in there, my bad.

CoffeeNow Powderpuff Leftist
04/07/16 2:12 pm

I disagree.

As for the pointless death, Han. It was so obvious he just died because he had wanted to be killed off since Jedi. Which is fine, but they could have had him sacrificing himself or killed in an action sequence or something that I cares about. But he just died like a bitch

I don't have a problem with the spirit of what they did, just how they did it. The nature of the death went against han's character.

Rogue one is about the rouge squadron team that aqueous the plans to the very first death star that are used in A New Hope to destroy the first Death Star. Rouge One is set in between episode 3 and 4

04/07/16 12:12 pm

Because this is bout the rogues that got the plans that Princess Leia eventually hides within R2D2, so that other squadrons like Rogue Squadron can do what they do. At the time of this movie, Luke is still a humble farmer.

Doopy Remedial Americanism

At the time, Wedge was Red 2. Wasn't Biggs Darklighter Red 1? Anyways, after ANH, Red squadron was reformed into rogue Squadron, but during Episode IV, they were not the same squadron.
