Episode VIII : The Last Jedi - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

I got to see it finally yesterday. It was very, very hard to not see spoilers, because they were everywhere on the internet, I mean everywhere I looked.

This thing has flaws, there’s no doubt about it, but I liked about 65% of the movie. Some of the jokes I could have done without, yes, some are funny, but some feel a bit out of place or awkward (Rose/Finn, I’m talking to you!)

I loved all the Luke/Rey, the Rey/Kylo scenes, but the Rose/Finn storyline wasn’t working. I understood where they were going with the material. I just think it was the location and characters I didn’t like.

STOP HERE Spoilers below

I didn’t like how Yoda looked in the very first scene, but as his scenes progressed, he looked better. Also, he didn’t look like Yoda from Episode VI, he looked a little thinner and not so old. I did love his scenes overall.

I loved Chewbacca and the Porg scene, as well as Luke on the Falcon and R2-D2 playing the princess’ message to Kenobi for Luke again. I also enjoyed C-3PO having more interaction and dialogue in this (the odds of successfully…are 15428 to 1)

I wasn’t expecting Snoke to get killed so easily, thought they were saving it for Episode IX.

Luke, WOW!, where do I begin. I loved his story arc, I wish he had actually been there on Crait, and to be honest, I thought after the barrage of fire he received he used a force shield of some kind. I was waiting for him to knock over all the FIRST ORDER stuff with a wave of his hand, but they went in a completely different direction. I actually thought when Kylo was going to strike him down, he would disappear as Obi-wan did, BOY, was I wrong. When I saw him levitating on that rock still on the island, I was shocked. I think I would have ended the film the moment he disappeared.

I didn’t like broom stick boy, I thought they should have ended it somewhere else.

I went into the movie spoiler free and I enjoyed the surprises when watching the film.

Rian Johnson did a good job, but you have to remember this, he cut over 40 minutes of footage out of this movie, some of the other stuff MIGHT make sense, had he left those scenes in. I can’t wait for the blu-ray so we can get a glimpse of some of those deleted scenes.

I’m very much looking forward to a fan edit of this once those scenes are available.

I cleaned these up and removed the Dolby stuff and just left the logo Star Wars The Last Jedi

And The First Order poster same thing, removed everything except the logo and had to replace The Last Jedi, because it was in a different language, now it’s in English.

I want the new Han Solo and Chewbacca to cameo when Ben walks into the cantina.

I don’t want Vader…too much is a bad thing. I want characters we either haven’t seen before, or animated ones into live action. I do want to see a better looking Bossk, prefer him or Dengar over Boba Fett again.

Darth Maul would be cool, not sure it would happen though.

They might take pieces of story here and there from the different lores and come up with their own story, they’ll probably change the names too.

If they go back far enough, we might even see Yoda’s father or grandfather, as they live to be around 900 years old, so who knows.

I do wonder if they will keep certain alien species, like Yoda or Tusken Raiders in this new trilogy, something that we can relate too, something that says, that’s Star Wars, even though it’s in another part of the galaxy and time frame.

What 'a Star Wars Story' / anthology / spinoff film would you like to see?
Time

Why not just follow Biggs and Tank when they leave Tatooine and join The Academy. They meet up with a younger Porkins and Wedge and eventually join the Rebellion at the end, but Biggs makes a small stop on Tatooine to visit Luke before he meets up with the Rebellion at the end of the film. We all know this to be the Anchorhead deleted scene. You could clean up those scenes and add them to the new film.

Find actors who resemble a young Garrick Hagon, William Hootkins, and Denis Lawson.

@ChainsawAsh, I think it will be more like this:

•2015: Episode VII
•2016: Rogue One
•2017: Episode VIII
•2018: Solo
•2019: Episode IX
•2020: Kenobi
•2021: Johnson I
•2022: Anthology (Fett)
•2023: Johnson II
•2024: Anthology (Jabba)
•2025: Johnson III
•2026: Anthology (Palpatine/ Crossover/???)
•2027: Episode X (just in time for the 50th anniversary)
•2029: Episode XI
•2031: Episode XII

I mean, how many Anthology films can you really do? Every character in the Original Trilogy? That’s just ridiculous to do one EVERY other year for 12 years straight.

What are your thoughts?

Rian Johnson to Head New Star Wars Trilogy

I wouldn’t worry about getting the Original Trilogy as it was in 1977, that I’m sure will happen eventually, if the deal with 20th Century Fox goes through.

As far as RT (Rian’s Trilogy) I’m glad we’re getting a new trilogy with no ties to anything or anyone. You’re not going to know what happens or who lives and dies. It will be fresh like Star Wars was in 1977. You didn’t know anything about it, so unlike the Prequels where we knew Obi-wan would live, Anakin would become Vader, Palpatine would become the Emperor and Padme would give birth to twins, you won’t know the outcome of these new characters and story.

I knew Disney didn’t just buy 3 movies Ep.7-9 for 4 billion dollars. They saw a lot more potential for this franchise, and I’m grateful for it. I love Star Wars.

Do you think this is right?

2018 Solo A Star Wars Story
2019 Episode IX
2020 Kenobi A Star Wars Story
2021 Rian’s first film of new trilogy
2022 Boba Fett/Bounty Hunters A Star Wars Story film
2023 Rian’s second film
2024 A Star Wars Story film ?
2025 Rian’s third film NOTE This will be the 17th Star Wars film if this list is true.

Yeah, her saber seemed to fake compared to The Force Awakens poster, it’s the same saber, so I made it brighter and a little longer and more colorful.

I had to put the Falcon in there, it works both from the top and bottom of the image, it could go either way, that’s why I used it.

I think for Episode IX, there’s going to be somebody across from Kylo Ren, with a Green lightsaber perhaps? I have a feeling that there will be a green lightsaber somewhere on the Ep9 poster. I have to see TLJ to figure where they are going with this. I will then do a sequel poster with what elements I can find.

I modified the TLJ poster again, this time adding the top of Luke’s hood to the poster, as Kylo Ren’s hood in The Force Awakens poster goes over the outline as well. It’s different, but I just wanted to see what it looked like.

If I remove the logo from TLJ poster, it is going to leave a gap, perhaps I’ll add Vice Admiral Holdo or DJ. I’ll see what I can do. If I do make the change, I’ll just edit this post and add it to the bottom of this link.

Done!
I asked myself, what was missing from the poster? Then it hit me, click the link to find out. I removed the Star Wars The Last Jedi logo.

Let me know what you think. If I should change something or missed something, then let me know, thanks.

What I’ve done so far with the Star Wars Episode VII and VIII posters.

I removed the credits from the Battle of Crait on The Last Jedi poster, as well as the logo and credits for The Force Awakens poster.

I do have an idea that I think they’re going to go with for Episode IX, or at least I hope they do it, it would be really cool. I’m going to come up with a few designs and place it next to these. I’ll probably do that this weekend.

Should I remove the Star Wars The Last Jedi logo from the poster? I was thinking about it, this way, it’s just all art. Let me know what you think.

Flipping those shots doesn’t work because the skiff ends up on the opposite side of the barge at the end, which is why they ended up flipping them in the first place

Not being bad at all, but I did notice that and I felt that the Barge had circled around while we cut away to the interior of the barge and it was not a problem at all because enough time passes from the exterior to interior and back to the exterior again allowing for the change of / new position. you can hear the engines also within the interior shots slowing too…

But I did not feel it was an issue. But if you think it’s an issue no worries don’t mind it either way…

I agree… And apparently my brain can subconsciously fill in the gap of how one floating ship can circle another off-screen a lot easier than in can figure out why a flipped Mark Hamill’s face looks so absolutely unnatural on-screen.

I agree as well, I figured they went to the other side of the barge off camera before slowing down. Either way you do it, it will be distracting to somebody. You can’t make everyone happy. I’m fine with either way, so no biggie.

I don’t know if this has been mentioned or not, but if Kylo is a Solo/Skywalker and Rey is a Kenobi, then history repeats itself, leading to a duel between the descendants. However, if they are flipping them over and Rey is the one who becomes seriously injured, due to going bad and Kylo returns to being Ben Solo again, does that mean we’ll get a Vader like villain (Rey) in a new trilogy? Or will she be more like the Emperor?

I personally think Luke is referring to the Emperor in the trailer (“I’ve seen this before, it didn’t scare me then…it does now!!!”) He wasn’t scared when he confronted the Emperor. I think I’m wrong, but it’s just a hunch.

They really can’t go down the same road again with Rey becoming like Luke and become a Jedi, can they? I mean, what if Luke had joined Vader at the end of The Empire Strikes Back, and what if they are going down this road and Rey joins Snoke, while Kylo returns as Ben. A Skywalker/Solo decides to become good again, while a Kenobi decides to become bad.

I wonder if they’re cheating with that last shot? Do we technically see Rey and Ren in the same frame?

I think it might be Rey’s vision, she asks him in her force vision to help choose where she’s supposed to be, then she wakes up and falls to the ground gasping for air, like in the teaser. Then she dives into the water and climbs out. She then tells Luke what happened and what she thinks she needs to do. Then Luke says, “This is not going to go the way you think!” Which eventually leads to her in front of Snoke frozen in place after defeating some of the red Praetorian guards.

Remember Luke has been down this road before. He saw his friends in Cloud city in his vision too, but Yoda warns him that, “Hard to see, the future is.” Luke is warning Rey, what she sees in her vision, isn’t going to be what actually happens, because the future is always in motion.

That’s what I took from the trailer. I hope this helps.
