    A Star Wars heist/action movie. Looks exciting. Love seeing OT designs again.

    I am excited. It actually looks even better than VII... and I loved VII.

    The casting for Mon Mothma is eerily superb.

    Also.. If Ben Mendelsohn looked any more like Gary Oldman in that shot, I might have had a heart attack.

    looks more interesting than 7 did to me. 7 was really bland other than a few interesting scenes. 8 needs to be incredible to setup a lot of stuff for the newest trilogy. they really needed imo to make 7 a bigger movie, there is nothing at all stated about the current situation for the empire and the local star systems, 7 just felt so confined compared to all the other ones. even a few short scenes talking about the various conflicts going on would have helped a ton imo, or even a few rumors to intro episode 8.

    I think this is a parallel story to the VII movie and not a follow up. It shall all blend in the near future, but for now it looks parallel. As stated in the logo, it is "a Star Wars Story"...

    It's a prequel, of sorts. It happens just before the events of Episode IV.

    Reading the opening crawl where they talked about the First Order rising "from the ashes of the Empire" and the New Republic sponsoring the Resistance to its control would also have helped. People keep complaining about not having had enough backstory in Episode VII, and I just feel like Tony Stark: "Am I the only one who did the reading?"

    It's baffling to me, but some folks are super into on-screen exposition, especially when delivered via terrible and unrealistic dialogue. Apparently, anyway, given its ubiquity. :lol:

    Like, did anyone else ever see Ninja Assassin? If you haven't, don't bother, but if you have, the whole 'sub-plot' with the detectives is a perfect example. They exist only to deliver terrible dialogue which spells out every little thing that's happening.

    Forest Whitaker in a Star Wars movie. Sold.

    Y'know, other than the fact that it just looks awesome in general.

    I like what I've seen. A Star Wars movie with NO Skywalkers involved. I'm looking forward to seeing this one more than I was Force Awakens. It looks wholly original and intriguing.

    It'll be a few months, at least, before anyone can see this, but I'll be sure to check it out. It seems that the middle film in each trilogy featured a whiny Skywalker that took something away from the intended tone of the films. I thought Luke was great in Ep IV and VI, and Anakin was okay to me in Ep III (I realize that's an unpopular opinion), and
    Luke was really just a McGuffin in Ep VII
    , so a Star Wars feature film sans Skywalker should be refreshing.

    You might think that, but odds are, the lead will end up banging Luke and giving birth to Rey or something. :lol:

    I laugh nearly every time I see someone write "Star War" instead of "Star Wars." I guess it's because of this.

    I had a fun December asking people if they'd seen the new Star War.

    lol I though the same when I watched that trailer, but then when I saw that in that storyline they are just finishing the deathstar I figre it was too early for taht to happen. But who knows, this might be for another movie lol

    Not sure whats the story in this movie. Maybe is the story on how the rebels got hold for the deathstar building plans, so they could destroyed on IV

    I didn't even think of it that way. If only they actually use Kyle Katarn...
