Re: Star Wars: Episode VIII (5/26/17, W/D: Rian Johnson)

I guess I never really thought about how long Vader was really around. Fourteen years after Revenge of the Sith seems like a long time for some reason but I guess it would make sense as Anakin has obviously aged quite a bit by Return of the Jedi and it would have taken time for the Empire to rise to power even after the Jedi were defeated.

Not to mention it was enough time Annakin/Vader's two kids to grow into adults.

At least we only have to wait 1.5 years for the next chapter. Are we getting the Boba Fett/Han Solo spin offs before then?

And for people to start thinking of the Jedi as an urban legend.

Actually, I think JJ is good at starting something but doesn't really know how to see it through to fruition. I'm ok with a switch to someone else that might have a more complete vision to see it to the end.

Yeah. I dunno I guess for some reason I just never pieced together how long he was Vader. It makes sense though for various reasons.

I like how in the new film they called the base Starkiller as a nod to what was going to be the original name of the Skywalker clan.

While the Emperor created the Galactic Empire at the the end of Revenge of the Sith, it was kind of in name only, with the Senate members all on board. Actually taking away their power takes time, but seeing as how the Emperor destroyed the Jedis, destroying the Senate wasn't really a time-pressing issue, since no one was able to stop the Emperor anymore. Well, not until Luke came of age, obviously.

Episode VIII will introduce the "Star Whacker," which will be capable of taking out multiple stars.

Spoiler:


This man has seen it in action, but nobody believes him until it's too late...

Re: Star Wars: Episode VIII (5/26/17, W/D: Rian Johnson)

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hasn’t even been in theaters a full week yet, but plans are already in motion for its follow-up, Episode VIII. Rian Johnson (Looper) is directing that sequel, but J.J. Abrams is apparently regretting not returning to the galaxy far, far away to helm it himself.

His longtime friend Greg Grunberg (who has a small part in The Force Awakens and also appeared on Abrams’ TV series Lost and Felicity) told The Washington Post that Abrams reacted that way after recently reading the Episode VIII script.

“He read it and said something he never, ever says,” Grunberg said of Abrams. “He said: ‘It’s so good, I wish I were making it.’”

“He may have said something one time on Lost, with Damon [Lindelof, the co-creator],” the actor added, “but I never hear him express regret like that.”

Fixed.

It got even stranger when he took the mask off and revealed he is Adam Driver.

I remember him only from Alias and he was fine on that. Surprisingly, I know he's on Lost, and I bought that big ass set yeas ago - but have yet to watch it.

Re: Star Wars: Episode VIII (5/26/17, W/D: Rian Johnson)

He's on a single episode of Lost. I think the only one Abrams directed. He was also on Felicity. I don't get the big deal as he was a major character on both Alias and Felicity. His bit parts in the other Abrams stuff only stands out because we expect to see him. Maybe I don't see the big deal because I like the guy.

Just saw a pic of him. I know the face but beyond that I don't know him. Maybe from alias... which I barely saw.

Re: Star Wars: Episode VIII (5/26/17, W/D: Rian Johnson)

I dislike Greg Grunberg because he was a regular on Heroes (2004 series). That show started off great and eventually turned sour, and now have a deep hatred for that show.

So seeing Grunberg appear in SW made me cringe only because it reminded me of Heroes.
