Reminds me of the original McQuarrie concept.

I don't know how anyone could NOT want a Vader movie after watching it.

Well, that was kickass. I can't believe they did that for only $150K!!!!

Damn, that was better than some of the official stuff.

So, since Disney sanctioned it is this canon now?

Personally, I think Lucasfilm should just scrap the rest of his episodes, give him a studio budget and get this movie rolling!

And how about that dead on impersonation of JEJ at Vader? I guess you can manipulate that some with technology but it sounded exactly like him.

It was better than any of the official stuff Disney has done except maybe TFA.

I've watched again and one thing I noticed that is kind of funny and weird. Once you see it you won't unsee it.

Vader has alligator arms.

Probably why the high ground was so effective against him.

I'm just waiting now to hear when the Anaheim opening actually will be so I can book our trip out there this summer. Hopefully it'll be announced soon.

In response to canadiaggie on the Aquaman thread.
Quote:

Wasn't talking about the $$$$ performance overall, but iirc TLJ made significantly less money than TFA.
When you are one of (or THE) biggest box office successes of all time, you are pretty much guaranteed to go down from there.

See: Empire Strikes Back

TLJ was always going to be a significant dropoff. The real question is can Ep IX improve on TLJ? I think it can, but it really depends on how much damage TLJ did with general audiences.

And I think the name brand that is JJ Abrams is no small thing.

Ep IX will do TLJ/RO type numbers, certainly. And with a glimpse of Force Ghost Luke looking glorious and an epic space battle led by Chewie in the Falcon and Rey in a mask bathed in the glow of a purple lightsaber in a trailer will have all the supposed boycotters going to see the movie, even if they lie about it online.

Why purple? Why not silver like Ahsoka?

Not sure of color, but I'm sure it's double-bladed.

It's blue. She uses Anakin/Luke's broken crystal, right? So it's a double bladed, blue staff lightsaber. It's the only thing that makes sense...

Apparently Episode IX takes place a year after LTJ... according to John Boyega

Just speaking in generics on this front (unlike the title Duel of the Fates which WILL be the title). When the trailer shows awesome, evocative things, the inevitable supposed boycott won't hold water and it will make lots of money, just like TLJ and RO.

He also doesn't remember saying that so while probably true, I don't think that's locked in.

I *****ed about TLJ quite a bit but I will definitely go see IX to finish this thing out. I also think Abrams knows he has to pull this thing out of the ditch so I'm very curious to see if can do it.

Dammit now I'm thinking about something I said just as a throwaway comment. Rey in a mask would be interesting and could be awesome.

What if Rey wears a mask as part of her Ep IX costume update? It would be a more sophisticated variation on this:



Reasons the mask could be viable and/or cool:

1. Seems like a very JJ thing to do
2. Flips the script of the end of TFA and TLJ of Kylo abandoning his mask
3. Rey in a mask in a trailer would cause lots of buzz
4. There are a lot of production advantages to the lead wearing a mask in terms of using a stunt double
5. Masks are pretty marketable
6. The first time we see Rey she is in a mask, and a possible return to Jakku would warrant wearing one
7. Knights of Ren will certainly make an appearance and they seem to all wear masks, so there's a parallel there

Not saying it would be all the time or anything, but just a part of whatever her combat costume is for a big battle.

Okay, the below is a deep dive into Star Wars fandom that I think is fascinating but is not for most. Just FYI. I just thought it was too illuminating not to talk about.

The short version is that this anti-Disney guy has concocted this whole story about how he got a behind the scenes look at the Lucasfilm takeover and the machinations of Pablo Hidalgo. But it's all made up. These people have never met and these conversations never happened. He can't answer any questions about any details of this eventbor his supposed friendship with Arnie C. Yet he's out there feeding this to the fridge Star Wars crazies to get clicks. It's bonkers. He should maybe run for office.

Not saying the guy is a major player or influencer or anything, but I can't imagine what the Lucasfilm guys have to deal with.

I just want it to be well written, and make sense.
