Title: Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi
Post by: Inkling on January 23, 2017, 11:05:47 am
Probably too early for this thread, but we got the title so why not.

That's kind of underwhelming but also makes complete sense.

I think The Last Jedi is an even worse title than Attack of the Clones.

Maybe it's The Last Jedi in that they're doing away with the order


Idk, it'll be mediocre whatever they decide

Also, she's Han's daughter, not a Kenobi, not a Skywalker, not some random chick, she's a Solo, anyone that thinks anything different is wrong.

Woo! Wild speculation with no trailer and only a three-word title to go off from!

WOOOO!

It could also just mean Luke, seeing as he is at this point the last Jedi.

Luke dies. His student is the last Jedi. His student falls to the dark side, the last Jedi.

Until the sequels get their own version of the expanded universe and it turns out there are about eighty billion jedi hiding on other planets like there were during the original trilogy if you go by the expanded universe.

Also if you inject people with Zzandron crystals they exhibit Jedi like powers. Once Han Solo's cousin who was a Jedi and hiding on the planet Draylon from the Empire was injected with the crystals by Shyyt Baddo (Darth vader's 5th secret apprentice)  which turned him into a Hyper-Jedi. He'd recently discovered that the Empire were constructing a fourth Death Star in a nearby system, with the power of eight regular Death Stars, so he used his Hyper-Jedi powers to steer Draylon through space and smash into the new Death Star. Also the Satan guy from the cantina was his sidekick and also a Jedi after he defected from being Palpatine's secret SECRET apprentice when he discovered he was actually a clone of the original satan guy being manipulated as part of a plot to infiltrate a medical freighter headed for the planet Shel-b. in the Vyl system. The crux of the story is that the satan guy has a Kashyykiean onion on his belt, which was the height of fashion during the era of the Galactic Empire. For more information please consult your local merchandise.

Haven't seen the trailer yet, hopefully I can get ahold of a screen bigger than my phone or tiny tablet tomorrow.

Watch Force Awakens but don't bother with Star Wars: Rogue Squadron Genesis: The Movie: Chapter 1: Rogue One: A Star War Stories.

I didn't and I've never been happier.

Now go see Star Wars and I'll give you a beer.

Haha I quoted myself from earlier in the thread to try and look like a bigshot calling things when really I have nothing of value to add (much like Disney).

Saw the trailer, happy that it didn't give away too much.

Yeah it looks fine. I'm glad Luke is finally thinking logically and realized that using the Force in the fashion that the Jedi and Sith have been doing is the entire problem.

Filmmakers really in love with contrasting colors off of large, white backdrops lately. I trace it back to that opening scene from the second Star Trek reboot.

**EDIT**
You know, the one with the white trees with red leaves or whatever?

I see what you mean. Red and white makes a really striking contrast, though.
Title: Re: Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi
Post by: PatMan33 on April 15, 2017, 11:39:38 am
Yeah that's the one! And it is a good contrast.

Seems like that movie reminded a lot of filmmakers that such a contrast existed.

Preview images.  Not sure how I feel about the crowd shots.  The aliens don't look right.  They look more like they're from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie than Star Wars.

Yeah none of them reach the high standard set by this creative masterwork:

I actually think they look cool. Also there's a new species of Lady Gagas apparently.

We're used to seeing all the rough, backwater places and the aliens that live there. We don't often get to see the affluent part of the galaxy.

Yeah, it certainly looks different to any previous Star Wars stuff but it looks like it lives in the same universe and it isn't prequel trash.

I'll take a giant posh alien horse over a "Jetster Dexter" any day of the week >_>
