What was an impressive for Lucas was that he was able to pull such a wooden performance out of portman. It was really an impressive feat when you think about it

Unless this is as good as episodes IV or V, there will be people that will complain about it. The movie is going to be dissected and all its faults will be overblown. It doesn't have to be great for me to be happy.


There is no way it will be better than those movies, because I saw them as a kid. I feel like most in my age range will feel similarly. If you are expecting it to exceed your perception of those movies and are in your 30s to lower 40s - you are going to be disappointed, I think.

Very true, and blue star for you. The thing that will hurt this film the most is the franchise's own fans. Well it's either going to be that or JJ copies/reorganizes some of the story copying some story from the OT which peeves some people.

I disagree... at least for me personally. It just has to be a good movie and I will be extremely happy. It doesn't have to be great, it doesn't have to move me... just be a competent movie with good acting and the Star Wars label will do the rest.

If the acting is off, the dialogue is awkward, & the story is a mess... then yeah, there will be a lot of people disappointed. I just don't see it though. I think those of us that are normal fans are going to have a really good time watching this.

Too much talent making this movie for it to be a dud. With the returning characters and some exciting new characters, I think they hit it out of the park.

While I don't disagree with that you said, I think there are some fans that have some unrealistic expectations or are holding on to the EU becoming canon in a post ROTJ story for the ST. I think those people are the ones that will be most disappointed.

But then again, how personal expectations vary from person to person is the issue here. Frankly, I think that the movie could actually be really good and fans would still ***** and moan about how it wasn't what they were expecting because of ________.

I agree, the overall philosophy of the film makers seems to be dead on.

Some of you are saying your love of the OT will make it impossible to measure up. I say that it will make you enjoy this movie all the more. The dogfights, the lightsabers, the sounds, the music. You will feel like a kid again.

Call me crazy, but I think the nostalgia factor will far outweigh the possibility of feeling like it doesn't measure up.

The spot the cameo game should be pretty fun in this one. I've heard the number of actors who made the set during filming is pretty high. Hoping the rumor that the Star Trek reboot crew can be spotted in one scene is true.

I hope Tom Cruise is an X-wing pilot.

Wasn't sure which alien Pegg was playing so thanks for that. Same question as Mr. White, any other actors rumored to have cameos?

You got them mixed up. Cameo did Word Up. Social Timex Club did Rumors.

I hope no one.

Many did visit the sets though. Daniel Craig as a Stormtrooper or Kevin Smith as lightsaber kid all grown up.

George Lucas addresses AOTC cameo rumors.

Not sure which is better, young Fallon impersonating young Timberlake, or Tracy Morgan as Mace Windu.

Well, I remember Steven talking up every prequel movie as well! Specifically the Phantom Menace... he was all over Lucas's nuts and was part of my hype going into the movie. This must be EPIC I thought.

Fool me once Spielberg!

Spielberg has always been super close to Lucas so him hyping a Lucas movie should not be surprising. I don't know if he has any direct ties like that to this one, does he?
