I think the fact that we didn't see a scene of the lightsaber killing younglings is pretty strong evidence that they are deliberately avoiding references to Eps 1 through 3. In the history of that saber, that's a substantiala moment, as is it passing from Anakin/Vader to Obi-Wan. But, all we daw was Luke losing it and forward from there.
Related topic. When Finn and Dameron are escaping in the TIE fighter, the First Order baddie orders to fire the ventral cannons. We then see missiles launched at the fleeing TIE fighter. The OT never featured any weaponry other than laser blasts. Missile technology was a part of the PT, specifically in Clones and Sith. Dameron even spins the TIE fighter, forcing the trailing missiles to spin into themselves. That is right out of Sith when Anakin performs the same maneuver to evade missiles.

I know this is not as obvious as Anakin/Luke's lightsabre but how this can not be considered a PT reference is puzzling.

I see your point but that is a bit of a reach. I would have gone with phasma's armor.

Not true. Torpedoes were used several times and the Falcon used its Concussion Missiles to destroy the second Death Star. TIE Bombers also used bombs when searching for the Falcon in Empire.

I think you're trying too hard. Could just be something they thought would be a cool visual.

Yes, Phasma's armor is a direct reference in the canon. However, it is never mentioned in the film and in reality was not the basis for that character design. It was chrome first, then the reference to Palpatine was written in.

Sounds like more deleted scenes are coming at some point, including more of a backstory for Simon Pegg's character

Speaking of Simon Pegg's character...

I wonder if the deleted scenes will include his meeting with Chewbacca as described in the novelization?

I doubt it. While funny, I'm glad that scene didn't make the movie. Didn't quite fit.

For those that didn't read it, Plutt shows up at Maz's to reclaim the Falcon and ends up getting his arm torn out of its socket by Chewie.

Well, Han did mention way back in ANH...

The people who are convinced they're purposely avoiding prequel references are trying too hard.

Kylo mentions clone troopers, so they have no problem referencing them when necessary. Not really much more to be said about the subject.

I agree. I mean, there will be some holdover from that as it is essentially the rise of the Empire, but no reason to specifically reference or avoid them.

The clone army reference is the only obvious reference (unless you count something like using Ewan McGregor's voice since the other guy's dead): It's the only thing I felt I needed to explain to someone who's never watched Star Wars. I work with people from other countries where Star Wars isn't as popular, and they asked if they needed to watch all the others before seeing 7. I told them if you see 4, 5, and 6, you can watch 7 and enjoy it. 1, 2, and 3 don't add much to viewing 7 really. I just told them "at one point they mention clone soldiers: just be aware there were clone soldiers in the prequels, but it has no impact on enjoying or understanding 7"

Interesting video. And oddly relevant.

It is interesting what he said about being at the beginning and "we" can help shape they way the serial goes...considering how many times someone posts "the galaxy far, far away is too big to keep focusing on the Skywalker clan."

Anthologies really are a great idea.

It's being reported that the first line of Episode VIII is.

LUKE: come closer girl. I need some blood to get a reading of your midichlorian count.

It's a fake article that generates a location relatively close to you. Has been posted a couple other times with different locations.

Just a formality at this point, but it's confirmed Darth Vader will be in Rogue One and played by Spencer Wilding.





Edit: Disregard, doesn't seem to be actually official yet, stupid misleading reddit title.

No way that Lord Vader is a smoker given his medical history.

Still looks like he is going to kill you. With his mind. By staring at you.

Not sure if it would be awesome to be a movies star no one could recognize or if it would be horrible to be a movie star that no one could recognize

I'd rather have the money but be able to walk through the streets and take the family to dinner without everyone knowing who I was. But that's just my personality.

Well I don't think Lord Maul would have to worry much about being bombarded by fans. At least you could see his face even if heavily covered in make up, I wonder how many people would say that he played Snake Eyes in the Joe films if they saw him in person.

Boy, I still just don't know about this. I hope the story is just about a tough scrape that Han finds himself in and how he weasels his way out of it to come out on top, and not something where we see him win the Falcon, rescue Chewie, and famously dump his spice shipment in the weeks before Ep 4.

I trust all of the creatives involved so I should probably just have some faith. Still...
