Sooo many expectations being subverted

No parent is going to refuse to buy their kid Star Wars toys or take them to the movie because of Johnson. Kids don’t give a shite. Kids loved the prequels too.


My kids have no interest in Star Wars toys related to these new movies. Kylo Ren is the only interesting character that they're marketing at all, and he's "scary" so my kids don't want his toys. They really screwed the pooch on this thing.

Now, if we're expanding that to Clone Wars and Rebels toys, then sure. My kids are into those. Surely we're not pretending those purchases are related to TLJ.

-Opens on a close up of a set of eyes closed with the eyeballs rapidly moving back and forth as if in REM sleep.

-shows quick flashes of Episode VIII

-back to the closed eyes

-more flashes

-back to the closed eyes

-more flashes

-back to the eyes. The rapid eye movement stops. The eyes suddenly open. Zooms out to show Mark Hamil’s worried face.

-cuts to Rey saying “What is it?”

-Luke responds: “our future if we don’t get to work.

Then bam. Everything starts over.

Interview with Abrams. Just more proof there was never a plan and they're just winging this thing. Good read.

quote:

Abrams admits it was a daunting prospect given that Star Wars 9 already had a release date, and revealed that he did indeed toss out the previous script that Trevorrow was working on:

“To have no script and to have a release date and have it be essentially a two-year window when you’re saying (to yourself), you’ve got two years from the decision to do it to release, and you have literally nothing . . . . You don’t have the story, you don’t have the cast, you don’t have the designers, the sets. There was a crew, and there were things that will be worked on for the version that preceded ours, but this was starting over.”

The Force Awakens filmmaker goes on to say another daunting challenge was picking up where Rian Johnson left off in The Last Jedi:

“It was a completely unknown scenario. I had some gut instincts about where the story would have gone. But without getting in the weeds on episode eight, that was a story that Rian wrote and was telling based on seven before we met. So he was taking the thing in another direction. So we also had to respond to Episode VIII. So our movie was not just following what we had started, it was following what we had started and then had been advanced by someone else.”

JJ should have been the Kevin Feige of Star Wars. I think he makes it pretty clear here that he was caught with his dick in his hands thanks to Kennedy and Johnson. No way in hell would he have approved of TLJ script, if only for the hyperdrive weaponry.

JJ isn't a moron. He knows this doesn't break Star Wars.

Putting Kathleen Kennedy in charge of Lucasfilms was the dumbest thing they could have done. Every bad decision they’ve made since acquiring Star Wars is because of her.

Warner Brothers would have been better. We wouldn’t have these watered down SJW fests and they wouldn’t have rushed out a hurried DCEU either.

They should have hired someone to be the shepherd of the franchise who had a love for the characters and a master plan. They either should have had the same director or the same writers for the episodic movies. Genre dabble with the spin-offs.

Han could have been a great buddy heist film with some awesome action sequences. People will initially reject this, but it would have crushed it as a Fast and the Furious style film in space. Han starts out as pod racer, Lando is a young cargo pilots for the Empire and somehow he and Han cross paths and catch wind of a contract the Hutts have going on and we’re off.

Do a seven samurai style film set several hundred years before the PT with a young Yoda as a padawan.

Sure they are. Anyone who thinks that scene broke Star Wars is a moron.

I want to see that Luke was actually force projecting his force projection on that stupid island and he’s actually safely snuggled up on Tattooine.

I posted it before, when he's sitting on the rock at the end, one of the shots definitely COULD be Tattooine, instead of the planet Rey went to. There's a clip that seems to have 2 suns, and the Luke music (if I remember right) plays at that moment, rising in volume.

And he did tell Kylo Ren he's watching, or something like that.

Given how hamfisted that movie was, you don't expect a subtle trick like that. But given how Rian's almost smugly reacting to the criticism, I wonder if he really did set that up, and when everyone missed it and went on a rampage, he played along. That WOULD make the reappearance of Luke a huge and unexpected event in the next movie, which could save the trilogy.
"I hate this HATE this HATE HATE HATE YOU SUCK... oh WOW! YAY!!!"

...maybe?

I read somewhere that Lucas said in a trilogy, the middle story is supposed to be the bleakest, with things ending in a seemingly hopeless way, and the finale fixes that. Perhaps the whole second movie was meant to be that, outside the story, to put fans on edge before giving them the big ending. One great big 'gotcha' moment on us.

If the trailers don't tease this, and the movie starts off with Rey and the Resistance hopelessly adrift and outclassed, and Luke appears on his X-Wing and leads them out of the shadows in the first third of the movie, that would be awesome.
