So this will be the first Star Wars movie where a character says the movie's title, right? Not counting the animated Clone Wars movie, probably.

I think so, yeah.

Closest we've come would be TPM where the balance of the force was mentioned which was, I believe, a working title at one point.

Also, in TPM, Darth Maul says something to the effect of "At last, we will have our revenge," which ties into ROTS.

In TFA, an "awakening in the force" was mentioned.

Though none of these are the exact wording.

What are you talking about? They said "Star Wars" in Star Wars.

I originally felt that way, but after The Force Awakens, I like that Star Wars is around Christmas Time every year. I'm old enough now where I can't look forward to Christmas like I did when I was 8 years old, so this is sort of the next best thing.

They shouldn't ... I even found the mention of the Force questionable. I don't have an issue believing other Jedi secretly survived, but we've had 7 movies saying they didn't.

I highly doubt any of the heroes use a lightsaber. The only one to use it would be Vader.

Yen's use of the force always irks me. I thought that was more a integration into the Rebel Alliance culture from after Luke joins in but I think that guy that says it before the battle of Yavin... w/o any sense of Luke jerking off to what he learned from Kenobi and whatnot. So... at the same time... I guess it's okay? Maybe it just become a statement of fortune/fate/whatever at some point.

It is weird to me, still.

Didn't General Dodanna close out his Death Star briefing with "May the force be with you"? And that was right after Luke had just officially joined the Rebels.

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (12/16/16, D: Edwards) S: Jones, Luna, Mendelsohn, Y

I'm fine with the Force being part of this. I'm pretty sure characters in this universe can be sensitive to the force without being jedi/sith so it makes sense that some will be more in tune with it than others. Yen just might be someone who is Force sensitive but is not a Jedi/former Jedi.

Maybe it's more of a religion to the Rebels on Yavin and they're use of it is similar to "may god be with you" as they enter battle.

Yeah, non-Jedi characters would say "May the force be with you," in the OT. I'd guess that, in-universe, it's sort of like "Good luck," or "God bless you."

And then I believe on Hoth Leia uses a simple "good luck" as her closing and not a "May the force be with you"

What's the difference between stormtroopers and deathtroopers?

Seems that deathtroopers have a big piece on their chest, some kind of breathing system?

Exactly.

People can know martial arts without being a ninja.

From what I have read, the thing with Death Troopers is that they are very tall and thin (as in, 7 feet tall), giving them a more menacing and intimidating appearance. That's basically it.

Their armor is black instead of white, which opens up a whole new line of merchandise. More shitty Hasboro 5POA action figures. More helmets to sell. More Black Series figures. More Halloween costumes.

Oh shit, they're not going to use some silly clones explanation for them all being the same size, are they?

This junk just plain bugs me. The new toys are terrible. Didn't buy a one from The Force Awakens. 5POA is the one piece of nostalgia I'm way, waaaaay past. And it's obvious they're only doing it to sell the Black line for even more money. I love Star Wars, but no thanks.

^^ I was an avid collector until TFA. The figures just didn't appeal to me at all... I did pick up a Ren and Snowtrooper - but I actually *gasp* opened them

Yeah, the Hasbro toys are absolute garbage.

I almost bought Poe's black X-Wing, but after hearing some bad reviews of it I opened up the box in the store to get a look at it and, holy shit, what a piece of crap. It was all soft plastic, warped, and completely insubstantial. And fifty fucking dollars. It felt like a plastic milk jug.

I also find myself annoyed with all of the Star Wars junk filling the shelves. Hero Mashers. Air Hogs. Those Micro Machines that are size of postage stamps. Does anyone buy that shit? Every store I've been to has tons of that crap that looks untouched.

And what the hell is up with all of the ships coming with Nerf darts? The U-Wing, TIE Striker, and AT-ACT all have that Nerf shit.

I just sold off my whole Black Series 6" collection. The pre-TFA was pretty cool for the most part but TFA took the fun out of it and there are too man damn store exclusives now. Happy to be out of the game.
