What about undigested food in his stomach? Did that also become one with the Force? It’s not really part of his body yet, so it should be left behind.

You’d think that vanishing into the Force was sucha clean and peaceful process, but it’s actually more messy than normal death.

When you think about it, Jar-Jar stepping in poop isn’t that out of place anymore, it actually has a long tradition dating back to the very first film:

I’m going to go on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and scream at the animatronics like I have schizophrenia. It’s my form of protest.

Don’t forget to make a video of it. And also to film vertically.

Actually you shouldn’t film vertically. it might seem easier to hold your phone that way, but it is actually quite annoying to watch things that were filmed that way. There is a thing referred to as Vertical Video Syndrome and i fear you have it.

=p

I think you knew I was being non-serious, but answered as though I was.

I’m happy he did, because that video is great.

Frankly, I don’t care about “The Star Wars Universe”. Star Wars had inconsistencies between movies since Empire. What I do care about is a watching a good movie. And in the context of TFA, the quick gain in Force powers serves to advance the plot, instead of wasting time with some sort of training montage.
The same applies to Broom Boy. At my first viewing, I even missed that he used the Force to get the broom. Having him reach out and try several times would have put much more amphasis on it. The point of that last scene is to show that the Force is something natural. So yes, maybe the ways of the Force changed for the ST, but I don’t mind how they changed.

You’re overthinking this. The point of Broom Boy is to show how the Force is for everyone and that you don’t need to be mentioned in a prophecy or part of a certain family to use it. And in order to establish this in a quick and subtle way, they showed him grabbing the broom. Showing his enhanced reflexes would require a way longer scene, putting too much emphasis on him. And simply mentioning his abilities in dialogue would be lazy and too on the nose.

There’s one storyline that was interesting, that makes it apparent that the writers of it were part psychic: the storyline about the water world of Drexel, this was roughly 24-25 years before seeing the water world of Kamino in Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones!! Good job, guys!! 😃

Yeah, this. Or a water planet is just a really obvious choice to continue the “the whole planet is one big X” theme, if there was already a desert planet, a jungle planet, a forest planet and a city planet.
