The intro of TFA is so good too. So how about the same opening of TFA, but once Rey and Fin leave Jakku they meat up with Leia and the Resistance instead of Han. A shorter version of TLJ starts there.

Porno version of TFA incoming?

Almost forgot. There's a nice little troll moment in the TLJ novelization. When the Caretakers ask Luke for an explanation of who Rey is, he tells them that she is his niece.

I thought that was funny.

And here I was all worried I'd misspell Leia in front of a bunch of Star Wars nerds.

Apparently in the novelization also when Luke is looking out in the sunset at the end, someone tells him, "Let Go, Luke."

They don't say who it is....your first guess would be Obiwan as he says this to him in ANH as well...but another guess would be Anikan saying it to his son.

Thoughts?

Possibly Yoda, who is the only being we see Luke commune with in this story. Or, given the emphasis placed on it in the novelization, the Cosmic Force, itself.

Remember that Rey had a similar experience in the TFA novelization when she defeated Kylo. A disembodied voice tells her to kill him.

According to the blu-ray subtitles, Poe is actually calling Hux "General Hugs" in the entirety of the opening scene.

That's a direct quote from Obi-Wan in ANH, so I would guess Obi-Wan.

Also, anyone seen the deleted scene on Ach-To yet? (Luke telling Rey about the caretakers being raided.)

I actually loved that scene and wish it had been kept.

I'm starting to get the feeling that we might be getting some significant Force ghost action in Episode IX. With Luke obviously coming back as a Force ghost, no doubt, but I keep thinking about how Episodes IX is rumored to be not just the end of the sequel trilogy, but the grand finale of the entire saga. In that sense, what if Abrams pulls out all the stops and we get Anakin, Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, and Yoda cameos in some form or fashion, be it actual ghosts or just their voices? In other words, what Abrams finds a way to essentially give us The Avengers of the Star Wars universe, even if only for a single sequence or two?

I swear to God, if they do this and it's Hayden Christensen....

Actually, I can't back that up, but I will not be happy.

Well.......considering the Resistance is down to one ship, about a dozen people, and some porgs, they're going to need all the help they can get.

There's got to be a significant time jump, yeah?

they'll spend the interim years hiding out on the island with the nuns and alien sea cows.

it'll be great.

Surely, yeah. That said, I'd rather see the Resistance come together and build its forces in real time rather than cutting to a year later and they're suddenly a group of thousands again.
AgMarauder04

So, in a 2-3 hour movie, how can they rebuild forces AND fight a final, climactic battle without the use of a silly montage?
TCTTS

I'm fine with a montage. Braveheart and yes, even Avatar, did the clans-coming-together montage fairly well and effectively, leading up to a final battle. I'm betting when Episode IX opens, it's a few months later, the Resistance's numbers are maybe at 100 or so, but that a significant chunk of the plot will deal with rallying the troops so to speak, and Rey & co having to planet hop trying to gain support. That honestly sounds like a lot of fun to me, and could make for something we haven't seen yet in these movies.

JJ will include a 5 second blurb about how the first order jammed transmissions from that planet and that's why they didn't get help.

or maybe the bunker had radiant barriers on it to save on cooling costs which renders cell signals useless...

Didn't they say the signal got out and the reply they received was that no one was coming?

not sure, i'll have to rewatch.

So they actually got replies and the replies were "Nope"... ouch. that's quite the ego check for the remaining rebel scum.

Their message got out, and they knew it was received. But, they did not receive a response.

I can just see it now.

They send C3PO to Endor to rally their old friends and comrades, the Ewoks.

Finn will be sent to Tatooine Sun City retirement villa to convince Rex and the remaining geriatric clones to come along for one last adventure. Chewie will complain about having to load their walkers on the Falcon.

Rose will be sent to Naboo to persuade the gungans for their support once again, rationale being to send a really dumb, useless character, to convince some, uh, dumbass, useless characters to join them.

This is going to be awesome....

Starkiller 2.0 fires on Naboo. The world rejoices?

Would be a great use of Lando, IMO - having him be a key figure in rallying others to the cause. I could see Mazz contribute in this way, too. Come to think of it, I can see Lando and Mazz as soulmates.

Is Maz going to be in Solo? Because that would really suck.

Who do you want? Jake Lloyd or Sebastian Shaw? 'cause those are your only choices of actors with face time in portraying Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader.

Hey Maz, you know how those First Order a-holes destroyed your castle? You remember when you told Rey that the dark side's current form was the First Order? Well, we sure could use your help rallying some systems to help us fight them.

Sorry, kid...got this union dispute.

If they brought back Anakin, Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, and Yoda in one scene, the cleaners are gonna have a bad time mopping up the floor below my seat, a mixture of tears and jizz.
