Duel of the fates in the new tv spot got me so pumped! Each new second of footage takes away any doubts I have about this movie

Imperial March mixed in as well.

But the Palpatine return is a real problem.

If the Rey thing is true, that makes it even worse.

I’m guessing you haven’t read the spoiler reports.

Every new clip or TV spot just cements it further.

90+% on the money.

We even got the weird report, now proven true in the TV spot, about the giant floating cube on Exogol.

“Anakin had those qualities so rarely seen, exuding an unmistakable confidence and yet still able to touch one’s heart in simply knowing how he was so flawed… wounded.”

^ fair play to Lucasfilm / Disney for doing that.
 

Fair play. But they could have kept it behind closed doors instead of making it more PR.

A bit of ‘between of a rock and hard place’ for them on this mate…

The request for the dying Star Wars fan to see the film was a public one (an open tweet) - apparently word quickly got to Bob Iger (or his people) who seemingly acted promptly so the dying fan could see it.

I imagine Disney / Lucasfilm / people connected to the films would still be fielding requests - or likely coming in for some criticism - if they had not acknowledged these requests / given an update?

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Daisy Ridley is probably the worst actress of her generation.

I was going to make a joke about getting someone with real acting chops like Emilia Clarke

It’s fair. Emilia Clarke might be equally terrible.

I wonder if in his last breath, he whispered “Fire… Kennedy… please…

(don’t forget I’m french, I deserve the right to dark humor !)

I couldn’t give a fuck if you are French or not - or whatever place you come from.

Dark humor… maybe.

Tastelessly putting words in the mouths of dying fans to suit your views / agenda - no.
 

Have the week off.

Has a image of Leia holding a lightsabre, perhaps ready to give to Rey?

I actually think it’s when Rey gives it to her after feeling “unworthy,” which supposedly was done using the unused shot from the second TFA trailer of Maz handing the saber to Leia.

“They fly now!”

I couldn’t help but laugh at that clip. It came off as total schlock. I’m trying to embrace it.

It’s not like the clones could fly or anything like that… or the Fetts.

Oh no…

Adywan’s Star Wars Revisited edits are to Blade Runner: The Final Cut as the original theatrical releases of the original trilogy are to the original version of Blade Runner.

I’m so glad they made the ST. When I recently re-watched the OT I could not help but think “This doesn’t make any sense! Men can’t solve anything! Palpatine would never be defeated by a couple of stupid men. Only a SIW could possible defeat him!”

The circle is complete.

Mon Mothma and Leia do not exist for you in the Original Trilogy? They did not play large role in Rebellion which defeat Palpatine?

Only men? Huh.

With your post above, your narrow view is complete.

Leia is awesome of course; especially in SW77. Mon Mothma is nothing - her name not even spoken in the OT. You only get it in the credits. Why didn’t they just have Leia as the leader of the RA? She was positioned as such towards the end of SW77.
