I think I'm just mad about how many times I've read "rouge" this morning. Too early to call either way, there is as much cause for concern as optimism.
*edit* My favourite bit was actually Hamill recreating his entire TFA role in the 10 second clip at the end. Cool guy.
Perfect music choice has to go to that Force Awakens final trailer, that never fails to give me chills - i still wish that was Han flying the falcon in those scenes though.
Also Vader is confirmed (size of role still a mystery) and it now looks like the Emperor is there in that scene with the bowing figure in the black hood (we've only ever seen those cool red Imperial Guards in his presence).
They've established that Mendelsohn's character wears white (apparently the colour of an Imperial Grand Admiral's uniform, hence the Thrawn link), could the hooded figure even be Vader? I think I'd be better with that than an all new 3rd Sith.
And I'd hate to see Thrawn reduced. A Thrawn-in-name-only is the worst case scenario. And we wouldn't be allowed to complain that they got him wrong either, because reasons.
Does anyone else wonder why this is the only spin-off (confirmed or rumoured) not based on the earlier adventures of an established character?
Reckon it will have direct links to the new trilogy on top of the obvious ties to the OT?
Is Jyn Rey's mum? Is Luke Rey's dad? Neither? BOTH? Is Magneto (or the hooded character) Snoke? They won't spoil the reveal of Rey's heritage in a non-trilogy film, they probably won't even drop hints, but I totally expect callbacks to this film in eps 8 and/or 9 if not a direct tie.
*edit* Ellen looks cute in that pic, the tux and shorter hair suit her.
Just seems super safe , and the donny yen stick fighting just seems really out of place to me
I rebel was cringe worthy, little concerned Disney is gonna ride right down the middle with Star Wars and become less creative as a result
Yeah agreed on Donnie Yen. I really like him, but i find him pretty weak as a strong male char when speaking English - he just doesnt have the voice/presence to pull it off - nfi what they're doing with him in this. He wasnt particularly impressive in Crouching Tiger 2 either (IMO)Just seems super safe , and the donny yen stick fighting just seems really out of place to me
Agreed that characters are going to be weak / a series of cliches. Interested to see if Whitaker is more than a sagely black man who can fight aka Morgan Freemon in basically everything, but most specifically Oblivion.
The visuals alone will be enough to make this film a must-see, but Edwards is good at keeping things tense without showing you much. Personally i think it's going to be far more thoughtful than TFA, and will probably be a film I rewatch more than TFA.
Is Donnie Yen's character force sensitive? Glad to hear he hasn't lost that HK accent
