The minister at my church says this stained glass in our narthex is a depiction of Genesis 3:24. I'm not so sure of that, as it is clearly Leia using green, blue and purple(!) Force powers to combat a red Sith lightsaber.

I'm going to take my girls out of school early and go to it. If you happen to see a Vader-sized guy in an Ackbar shirt toting two adorable 3 year olds around, feel free to say hi.

This is an old video, but I still laugh every time I see it.

Here's a fun watch:



I didn't know about the Hamill/Abrams dinner for 5 bit, that gives the theory some credibility. Guess this video will be irrelevant in less than 100 hours, but a good time killer none the less.

I haven't read the whole thread so this may be disproven already , so let me know if it is.
Honestly I would love this twist. It is foreshadowed so heavily in the trilogy.

Hell, I would be fine with Luke flirting with the darkside during the time we don't see but comes to a redemption in training the new kids on the block.

I may be alone in this, but I got a little worried how they said at the end that they had to think about making money for Disney. I would almost like a borderline PG-13/R movie that shows the darkness of the universe. Sith stabbing people with lightsabers and **** before the Jedi save the day. ESB was NOT a kiddy movie. It was just a really fantastic film, which is what I would prefer. Hopefully my small fears are unfounded.

If you're in Fort Worth Rarh and Sons is having a Rahr Wars night with some pretty slick Star Wars pint glasses this Wednesday. I'll be there rocking a Fett shirt.

You are probably in the minority. I understand pg-13, but borderline rated R just doesn't fit. It would feel as odd as many of Lucas's bad decisions with the prequels. And besides it being out of place, Disney world indeed lose millions... Like 100 + million in ticket sales for people just like me who would no longer show up with 3 kids, not to mention the loss of "toys" revenue.

so question with just a few days to, would it be worth it to watch the Clone Wars and Rebels. My Tickets aren't until sunday so I think I can make time, though with obvious binging... Are either worth watching?

Find a good viewing guide for Clone Wars that emphasizes just the main stories. Thst probably cuts your viewing down by 40% All of Rebels is worthwhile.

Clone Wars is pretty good, but I agree with the above on getting a episode guide. You can definitely skip some episodes. Rebels is very well done... don't feel like there is much waste in that show.

For TCW, I'd generally recommend skipping the Jar Jar and Padme episodes. Probably one of the only pertinent arc that Padme shows up in is the arc dealing with the banking clan in season 6. Remember that TCW episodes recapped events at the start.

On the 3rd day till Sithmas, my true love sent to me
Ten Sith Lords leaping,
Nine Ewoks dancing,
Eight handmaidens milking,
Seven Gungans swimming,
Six buns a Leia,
FIVE GOLD(en) LEADERS,
Four falling Mauls,
Three Nerf herders,
Two Rancor-dragons
and a Poe Dameron in a Force tree.

FYI, the Collider movie guys, who may actually rival MuckRaker as Star Wars uber nerds, are attending the premiere tonight. They'll be posting videos on their instagram throughout the night, and will be posting their spoiler-free reactions and review on YouTube right after the movie. I'll post a link once it's up for those interested.

These guys also rival TCTTS in their hatred for the prequels, so their review will be very telling. If it gets a positive review from them, you can take it to the bank that we've got a great Star Wars film to look forward to.

I'm not personally going dark, but I'm treading lightly. I know none of the regulars posting here are going to ruin anything so I feel safe here. I don't really go anywhere else other than the Collider guys on youtube so I should be OK.

But to answer your question, I started reading Armada (same guy that wrote Ready Player One) and started playing Dark Souls II on the XB1 so I got plenty to keep me busy besides the wife/kids. Armada will also be with me on Thursday since I'll be at the theater 2 hours early.
