In case anyone else is planning on doing the same thing: if you watch one Star Wars movie per weekend, starting this weekend, you'll finish the weekend before Force Awakens.

I'm usually the first person to roll my eyes at the guy that likes to nit-pic everything... but why the heck is Greedo on the New Hope image!!?? I mean, why include him when Ackbar, Antilles, the Imperial Admiral, etc. are omitted. Strange.

But yeah, the poster is indeed awesome though.
because he introduced us to Han Solo (WHO SHOOTS FIRST).....

Han doesn't shoot Greedo until after he's met with Luke & Obi-Wan.


Greedo is on there because a representative from the NAARP (National Association for the Advancement of Rodian People) got to Lucasfilm and said they wanted on the poster or they'd boycott the movie, given the shameless way Rodians - Greedo is murdered by Solo, and beaten up by young Anakin in an Episode I deleted scene - are portrayed.

Here's some hardcore nerd math I just wasted time on.

From the time of the teaser last November until the first trailer in April, this thread averaged 1 new page every 6.2 days.

From the time of the first trailer in April until the second one in October, this thread averaged 1 new page every 1.7 days.

Since the second trailer debuted on October 19, this thread is averaging 1 new page every 13 hours.

By December 1, what will be down to, 30 minutes?

Lucasfilm has shown Daniel Fleetwood (terminal cancer patient) a cut of Force Awakens.

I wouldn't read too much into Poe's seemingly small role. I think you're actually seeing various degrees of a few things:

1. Poe, as a "new" hero of the Resistance, demonstrates that the world has kept moving without Luke (and Han, I guess). They're still fighting, and new people have stepped up.

2. Poe is a catalyst for some of the adventure and urgency in TFA, but may play a much larger role going forward.

3. I still think there's a lot of rope-a-dope going on here. False flags, red herrings, etc. Tough to tell exactly what we're getting.

Han has made a poor strategy decision here.



Leia says "Hottest planet around? I'll wear my clothes from Hoth."

Poe has had a role in every trailer.

Either those were pawns or his current absence is a pawn.

Either way, we are all playing checkers while JJ is playing chess.

Grew up in Nac, and youth group with Daniel. Really a great dude and never known a bigger Star Wars lover than him. Remember seeing TPM with him and a bunch of other guys back in the day. Glad he got to see the movie, so aweso!e to see the support he has around him!
