Star Wars Thread: Don't Get Cocky

Yes. Tosa. And...?

 

And I think my complaint? concern? betwwen 6 and 7 isn't that there is new stuff, it's that the sometimes feels like something is lacking without that jedi "framework"... you can tell good stories without them, but their presence in the background just does something to the general environment of the story universe. At least for me.  I realize Luke is supposed to be training some, but it's something that isn't even given a thought beyond Kylo Ren turning on him and destroying the school... it feels...off...

 

Again. Rambling. 

We're in the same system.

This is why Chirrut and Baze as Guardians of the Whills worked so well. I don't need the Jedi to be present in the stories, but acknowledgement of the existence of the Jedi and the Force and their importance is crucial to the Star Wars Universe.

So here's a theory about ep 9 that addresses:

- how Rey's parents can still be no-one and yet her origins can be a key plot point

- why Rey is so strong in the Force

- why and how the Emperor is coming back

and actually ties it all together.

I'm still not enthused about either the return of the Emperor or Rey's mystery origin, but if this was the answer, or something like it... I could live with it. It would work.

I like it. And we can have a skywalker fest with several generations of skywalkers having a huge fight…

So Rey was cloned from Luke's hand, or from some of the body parts Anakin lost in the prequel trilogy.   Someone found Luke's light saber, so they probably found his hand as well.

Return of Luuke!

Seriously Ep 9 needs to end with force ghosts of every character whos actor is still alive in a giant dragon  ball z/dark city/akira style ultra fight.

As much as a spectacle that could be, ST fighters just aren't the good with their lightsabers. (That's not an criticism, I actually like how their technical ability is trash, and it's only the force that lets them be a force to be reckoned with. It fits with everything that has happened in my mind.) So either the clone would have to be on their level for it to last any time, which would be kind of boring. Or he would be trained to PT standards in which case he would slaughter everyone in his path. Which I mean, could be fun. But probably isn't Disney would go for.

Well, yes, they've been foreshadowing that in the new EU books and comics and a bit in the films even.

The aftermath ones, which uh, really suck, but it's really that not surprising if you know either the old or new EU

Concerning what? Palpatine's return?

That's based on his signature laugh at the end of the teaser trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adzYW5DZoWs At 1:45.

Or are you talking about the Extended Universe stuff concerning his return? If that's the case, I'm as lost as you are.

Just Palpatine’s return. UnJon posted long after the trailer dropped stating Palpatine would be the big bad and “they” (whoever they is, presumably Kathleen Kennedy or Abrams?) were saying it was the plan all along. Which is not something conveyed by the trailer so i thought perhaps there was some new announce,ent rather than idle speculation

I didn’t see anything stating he would be the main villain but they have stated his return was planned in some form for ep 9 since the beginning.

Dude. They've already said they had no plan. This eagerness to swallow the new talking points from Disney does you little credit.
