or Hux was just always an overly hateful whiny bitch whose bark was bigger than his bite from the very start and the intent was for the audience to feel a bit of catharsis watching him get his come uppance and be exposed for the punk he really is

Thus leaving only the very emo Kylo Ren as the face of evil, making the FO seem far less capable and threatening than ever before. That doesn’t seem like a smart move for setting up the final installment of the saga, although it does explain the very postive attitude of those aboard the Millenium Falcon. With the opposition only relying on superior numbers, led by an emotionally instable Supreme Leader, who Rey’s already beaten once, the good guys can’t lose.

I will just leave this here …http://colleenhenry.blogspot.com/2007/05/awesome-kevin-smith-comment-about-star.html

No problem. This guy did it first. 😃

Take a closer look … he tried SPINNING … and we all know: that is a good trick. 😉

actually , this guy did it first but it ended up as a deleted scene …https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLlWcMRjeJo it happened in the Novelization though and I think it was Hobby who was the pilot but I could be mistaken

Religion

is there really separation of church and state in America or is the church becoming the state ? like when you go to the trustee of your town for rental assistance and they refer you to a local ministry as your second step in the process . Ministry that is funded by tax dollars . And then you are not required , but strongly “encouraged” to pray . Sorry , my conception of God does not ask for the bowed knee or demand obedience . I don’t believe he/she/it is that insecure .I see the concept as one of unconditional love and enabling one to rise up and help themselves that they may do good in the world . I am grateful for the help , just not the feeling of being judged for it .

Looking for an Easy Way to Get the Despecialized Editions
Time

where did the OP ever ask to buy or sell the edits ? He just asked for someone who might have them to share them with him . I asked user Movealong for a copy of his Story Of Star Wars and Empire Lp edits years ago and he sent me them in the mail free of charge . Great edits btw , I wonder what ever happened to Movealong . There have been other users who have offered to share edits with me as well . I myself have sought out and seen the instructions for despecialized and I also think they are a bit convoluted . I honor the policy here about not buying or selling the edits , so have not tried to buy them from some of the shady people out there trying to profit from others work . Maybe if they WERE a little easier to obtain for the less technically inclined , it might help to curtail that sort of thing .I would be thankful if someone here were to share their copies of Despecialized with me .

^ Sorry but I’m not interested in any theories or reading any books that “explain” things. If it’s not in the movie then it doesn’t form part of my initial understanding, feelings and reaction to it.

It’s about the sequel trilogy.

Hence why I’m not the least bit interested.

Sorry.

Not the least bit interested in anything about the sequel trilogy… but constantly posting in a thread about an upcoming film in said trilogy…

^this +1 . We get it ,you don’t like it …these aren’t the droids your looking for …move along …move along …

The original Marvel Star Wars series
Time

ah , here it is …according to this site , the blurb/solicitation was in Marvel Age number 41 , which gave a description of what was originally intended to be issue 107 …http://classiccomics.org/thread/1039/star-wars-marvel-reviews-confessor?page=78&scrollTo=191103… " but a clue as to the story that she originally intended to tell in this issue can be found in an early solicitation for Star Wars #107 in Marvel Age #41. The listing describes a completely different adventure, in which Luke Skywalker is hunted on a frontier world, by a number of different assassins, all intent on becoming known as the man who killed the legendary Jedi Knight. This early solicitation also reveals that the issue was originally meant to be inked by Ken Steacy, presumably before Whilce Portacio was brought in to help with the extensive re-tooling of the artwork needed to accommodate Duffy’s hastily rewritten series finale."

I want to believe #108 will be a faithful throwback to the Marvel Star Wars of yesteryear, but the cynic in me suspects they’ll make it as generic and throwaway as most of the rest of Marvel’s recent output.

^ I kind of agree with this , apart from the Simonson cover , not a single one of those interior artists worked on the original series except for Kerry Gamill and that was only in a very limited capacity . I agree with the above poster who said they should continue Jo Duffy and Cindy Martin’s story . I even made a fan cover imagining how 108 would play out with Bey And Dani, which you can see here…https://www.deviantart.com/screamsinthevoid/art/Original-Marvel-Star-Wars-continues-764845812
another factor to the cancellation , I believe , is that Marvel was launching their New Universe line of comics at the time and wanted to free up resources for that .Still , pretty cool to see that new Walt Simonson cover and the return of some old friends .

Anyone else totally disregard Leia being Luke's sister?
Time

yeah , this is an old argument . It is clear that George Lucas never originally planned for Luke and Leia to be siblings . Every piece of early Eu ran with the idea of a romantic connection between Luke and Leia . Splinter of the Minds Eye , which George consulted with Alan Dean foster on , and was intended to be a sequel movie if Star Wars was not as successful , ran with the idea . The Marvel comics of the OT era also did , even for a while after Empire came out . So , it is definitely there . There was no inbreeding because they were never originally intended to be siblings .In 1980 , my friends and I had conversations wondering who Luke would end up with . I thought it would have been Luke …wanted it to be . As an awkward kid , I related more to Luke and it was wish fulfillment for him to get the girl over the , bad boy ,jock ,cocky guy that Han was .If you watch the documentary From Star Wars To Jedi , Lucas talks about how he needed a reason for Luke to snap on Vader when hiding under the stairs and until that moment , he did not realize it was staring him in the face in form of Leia being his sister . So that was when that plot point came along .
