Full interactive compilation of the currently rumored plot elements. (a more organized and easier to read version than my previous post about this)
Most of this sounds pretty amazing to me, I didn't ready any of the two versions of Act III to avoid potentially spoiling the ending, but the first two acts seemed pretty interesting. If this turns out to be true then they're going for a much more simple and "calmer" narrative, which I personally welcome after the messy and frantic plots of the PT (ROTS especially, I mean that entire film was just one long climax with breaks). It also sounds very similar to ANH's plot structure. It has the characters, and therefore also us the audience, gradually getting to explore the universe of the film. I really hope that most of this is what the final film will actually be like.
I also liked the stuff with Maz Kanata. If it turns out to be true then it might piss of some SW purists, but I kind of liker the idea that they might have expanded on the nature of the force. Of course the title already kind of suggested that they had, but I always felt that the PT played it a little bit too safe and just gave us stuff we'd already seen. The only thing they added was midichlorians, and that just sucked the magic out of it. This seems like a step back towards the more mystical and magical aspects of the force.
