Random question: When you start reading these leaks/guesses/rumors of the plot, and you find yourself thinking "wow, that sounds cool..." and then none of that happens, do you think you are more likely to be disappointed in the movie than if you had no ideas about how the plot might go?

I feel like it's a win-win, at least for me. I love the idea of the movie being a hunt for Luke, but if it's not I'll enjoy the surprise. Regardless, I'm usually able to turn off my expectations once I'm sitting in the theater. When the lights go down, I tend to "forget" almost everything I know.

That said, some kind of search-for-Luke plot is almost guaranteed at this point. Too many independent sources have reported it. The severed-hand-and-light-saber-floating-through-space thing could easily be misdirection, as could many other plot points we think we know, but I'd be willing to bet the house on the plot revolving around a search for Luke, to some degree.

I've decided I'm officially out on plot spoilers. I really diminished my enjoyment of the prequels with them.

See ya when the first trailer hits.

So after the end of the search for Luke they'll return to Earth and kidnap a whale, right?

apparently a new set photo has hit the intrawebs

I'm still shocked that a single set pic of any member of the main hasn't leaked. Granted, they've mostly been shooting on stages up 'til now, but they've been doing plenty of location work as well.

Scenes set on Tatooine.

^ Btw, word is the desert planet in this movie might not be Tatooine.

He looks awesome.

Can you imagine what he must be going through? I know he had had a great career, but he's getting to play the role of a lifetime, here.

What if it's JUST the light saber floating in space, sans the hand. I could dig that a little more.


Keep in mind that if it is a hand clutching a light sabre, it's his sword hand, his right hand, which is the robotic hand installed at end of ESB.

So, thinking on this more, it wouldn't be nearly as cheesy if they found the robotic hand which could obviously survive the elements and decomposition

He looks like Old Ben. I hope he retains his fighting skills more like old Yoda than old Ben.

Too bad the picture doesn't show if his hand is intact.

Decomposition in space?

Do you think he uses the force to rub one out, or is that a dark side power?

Robot hand would be dangerous to use (if it malfunctions).

fighting Yoda is still one of my least favorite things about the prequels

Maybe he was an ambi-baiter beforehand, so switch hitting is np.

I swear, these people who get the SW scoops are some of the most incoherent writers I've ever encountered. Granted, they're all working from rumor, conjecture, and second-hand sources, but still.

Apparently it's ONLY the lightsaber floating through space (no severed hand), but I still can't quite understand this guy's point...

quote:
EPISODE VII will open with the traditional crawl, spelling out where we are and giving us some indication as to where that familiar galaxy far, far away rests all these years later since RETURN OF THE JEDI. Then once it fades off-screen, we will indeed get this floating hand with lightsaber floating through space… well, sorta. My sources indicate that the hand is a bit too gruesome of an image to kick off the new trilogy of films with, but Luke’s lightsaber that would have been set free from Cloud City as he was released into dangling from its weather vain will be there front and center.


HUH?

Dumb. No way it's the lightsaber from Empire. That lightsaber fell from Cloud City and would've been destroyed by the gases below in Bespin.

That won't be it. JJ isn't super concerned with science or whatever, but that makes no sense. Also, finding THAT lightsaber would not spark any sort of urgent quest to find Luke.

Agreed. None of this makes any sense.
