Thanks for sharing. Good read for someone like me, who doesn't consume any Star Wars material outside of the movies.

No problem. And yeah, same. I didn't know any of that stuff.

Same here, that filled in a lot holes, especially about who the Resistance and First Order are.

Honestly, some of that stuff would have either made for a more compelling movie than TFA, or could have made TFA itself more compelling. Kylo betraying Luke, the news going public that Vader was Leah's father, etc. I know a lot of that was impossible to incorporate due to the ages of the actors, but one aspect I still think would have been cool to actually witness was the rise of The First Order. See them rebuilding in the shadows, their first terrorist attack, people realizing the Empire never truly died, etc. Could have been a movie in and of itself.

In fact, that gives me an idea...

That link really underscores how little the new canon has filled in the years between Jakku and TFA. Hopefully once TLJ and IX reveal whatever secrets they will, they'll go back and fill in more. I think you could have a great Unknown Regions series or even something like Stackpole's X-Wing series.

I'm looking forward to the Snoke: A Star Wars Story thread.

Alright I'm out; see you all in 2 weeks... too much blabbing and near-spoiler posting for me already

10 days ...

I consider myself a huge fan of all of these movies (including TexAgs' most hated Episode I). I find it odd that in years past I could not contain my enthusiasm for seeing each and every one of these movies. Until this one.

It's not that I won't see it, certainly. I think that it was a factor of when it was going to be released, and everything else that I was really looking forward to that was coming out before The Last Jedi. Dunkirk, Thor Ragnorak, Justice League, SpiderMan Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, Wonder Woman, Blade Runner 2049 ... well, I've seen all of those now, and over the weekend I noted that with every commercial break during the various ball games I watched on Saturday, they played TV spots for TLJ and those ads got my attention every time. And finally, I have enthusiasm for The Last Jedi and cannot wait for Dec 15.

I have ignored and turned off every ad I could. I only watched the trailer once. I am trying like hell to avoid spoilers and speculation. I think this will make my watching experience even greater. I don't need hype to get excited about Star Wars.

Not a single mention of Snoke?

I think he is mentioned by other characters in Phasma and maybe Bloodline, but they didn't give any more information about him than you can glean from TFA

At this point we know more about Admiral Haldo than we do Snoke...and that is a good thing.

Yeah, so far we know what Lucasfilm wants us to know. I can't decide if it's annoying to me or not, but it's brilliant marketing.

Gotdamn i love Mark Hamill. I'd like to think that if I was ever as iconic as him, I would be at least half as decent a human as he is.
Brian Earl Spilner

Honestly.

Nicolas Cage is going to steal Mark Hamill in his next movie.

I was never not going to see TLJ, so I'm not sure it was marketing in my case as much as it was more me being ready to start seeing Sar Wars again, given all the other movies I wanted to see.

Or he has his domain - my office is full of A&M, Star Wars and golf memorabilia ...the wife has no say on the decor in there.

Thats how my spare bedroom is. Hell she bought me two wall decor items that are basically cross-section/blueprints of R2-D2 and a multitude of spacecraft.
