He’s more of a tv series episode director. Maybe on the Mandalorians ?

“I have to say that I felt George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters.” - James Cameron about Episode VII.

pretty much confirms undoubtedly the remade Kylo mask

I have stated already why I didn’t like the idea of Ben rebuilding his mask, as it is an act of back treading upon his character, there is a way that the mask could be used well. There is a scenario in Episode IX that came to me where the use of the mask could be used well. After a possible fight between himself and Rey, there could be a moment where Rey tells him to take off the mask. Ben doesn’t do so, but Rey is able to talk him down to trust her. Rey approaches him slowly and takes the mask off him herself. It could be a beautiful mirroring as to when Luke took off Vader’s mask in Return of the Jedi. That’s just a scenario that came to me that could possibly happen in Episode IX.

I actually do believe that the story direction for a romance between the two was planned from the beginning of the trilogy.

It’s possible. I really don’t see it happening though. I think for whatever reason, the Lucasfilm story team or writers or whoever of these new films are either not interested or afraid to go all-in on the romance angle.

Maybe they think it’s too old fashioned or something. It does seem to be kind of an outmoded notion in modern blockbusters.

Solo kind of does it, but even then it’s a more cynical kind of romance.

Hence “he’s more of😉 (his Star Trek films are among the weaker of the bunch)

I can’t find fault with them technically, and I don’t think he wrote the scripts. And unlike the director of Nemesis, he at least knows Geordi isn’t an alien. 😛

I think that later today this thread’s name should be updated, since the official title for Episode IX will be revealed later today.

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?

Is he back? Where’s that picture from?

Intriguing title, to say the least. Which singular Skywalker is being referred to?

The picture ain’t from the new movie. But a very distinct laugh was heard at the end of the trailer after Luke’s VO said “no one’s ever really gone.”

The image of Palpatine, I believe is from the Hot Toys for Return of the Jedi. As for the title, I believe that “Skywalker” refers to the family name.

Guess who’s back!

Since they’re apparently going to visit the wreck of the DS2, I’m guessing Palpatine might appear as either a Force Ghost, or more likely, as some kind of Force Vision. Might be similar to the Thrawn trilogy where the death of the Emperor left behind an imprint in the Force.

Or Lucasfilm could just be messing with us in the trailer. Wouldn’t technically be the first time.

Both Death Stars blew up. There was concept art for The Force Awakens of the second Death Star underwater, but they scrapped it. It seems like they could potentially be returning to those ideas, but it also seems a bit odd because the Death Star blew up in space.

Where did you get that tidbit?

Isn’t it in the trailer?

The shot at 1:37.

It looks like the DS poking out of an ocean. They were planning something similar for TFA, so I figured they’d simply reused the idea.

Oh is that what that thing was? Jeez, I guess I’m not very observant.

Well, it blew up orbiting Endor. So it’s not out of the realm of possibility that fragments fell to the moon’s surface. Which would also suggest that the forest setting that was shown in a couple of the promo photos might indeed be the forests of Endor.
