That's a cool premise, although the Snoke comic that just came out as Kylo Ren destroy the cave to get rid of the visions it gives him.

You can have dinner with 5 actors/directors/whatevers from the Star Wars films - who do you pick?

Rules
1) No picking Rian Johnson, etc. to bash them
2) This isn't a Tindr date
3) You can assume to pick dead people since we've lost a lot of the OT

Will post my own after I think about it.

1. Mark Hamill
2. George Lucas
3. Ian McDiarmid
4. Natalie Portman
5. Ewan McGregor

If we can pick dead ones, replace Ewan with Carrie Fisher.

Harrison Ford is a huge star and I would absolutely love to meet him, but let's be honest, he's not exactly a chatterbox. After the initial admiration wore off, he'd probably not contribute much to the conversation.

Dang. Forgot about Christopher Lee. Might have to throw him in there if dead are allowed. (Sorry Natalie.)

I'd invite Christopher Lee just to hear his stories about being an operative behind enemy lines during WW2 and secretly hunting down Nazi leaders at the end of the war. Total badass.

I love Ewan's Obi-Wan, but I feel he's so candid in interviews I feel like I might already know a lot of what he'd day.

Do you guys remember "The Beginning" - the DVD documentary for the The Phantom Menace. There's a great outtake of him fighting Maul and he drops down onto a mat, waits til they say cut, then pumps his arms and legs with sheer joy and says "They said, you're going to do Star Wars? And I said you're GD right!"

Random note on a rewatch, RotJ has its issues and is a step down in many ways from the two prior episodes, but the speeder chase is one of the action high points of the OT.

It's a good cut up, but the new trilogy barely feels like it fits.

I can't help but be pulled out of the saga, so to speak, when they show Rey. That line from Maz about the belonging Rey seeks sends me right into a spiral of how nothing about Rey makes sense, and JJ probably brought the emperor back solely to try and fix that.

I know this is a me problem, but that's the effect it has on me.

I wouldn't say that's a you problem; it's a Lucasfilm problem. So far they have completely botched Rey's arc.

She has a line in The Last Jedi (paraphrasing): "I'm trying to find my place in all of this."

So are we, Rey.

Isn't her trying to find her place, AN arc?

Sure can be. JJ could stick the landing; I actually have a lot of faith he will. At this point though Rey has been taken down a few pegs in my book and has become far less compelling.

Yep, I'm way more interested in Kylo Ren's arc at this point. Kind of don't care what happens to her. Just because this thing has been off the rails I would kind of love it if in this next movie she goes to the dark side and Kylo goes light and takes her out. I realize the chances of that are -200%.

But, that's just me wanting to watch the world burn.

My dad and I have been geeking out at Galaxys Edge today. Chewie was hanging out at a diner when he saw stormtroopers. He began hiding behind pillars until they left and then went and sat down next to a 4 yr old boy. Saw Kylo Ren and his retinue pass by and began harassing guests on info about the resistance. The attention to detail is awesome

I realize a loud part of this board does not like the new movies, but JJ Abrams' commitment to using Billie Lourd in them is such a special thing for me. Ditto making sure that Peter Mayhew could be in some scenes as Chewie in TFA and putting R2-KT in The Force Awakens as a tribute to Katie Johnson. Blah, blah, Disney has ruined it... then why do their people take the time to do such amazing things?

Abrams gets it. While there were complaints about TFA, the fans obviously responded to the product he put on the screen.

I'd never heard it, but thank you, Old Wise One, for letting us know that this footage was released at some point last decade. No one is saying it's new. Just funny and interesting.

I'm not dissing you, just the Twitter person.

And why does the "Twitter person" deserve a diss? He literally only said, "If you've ever wondered what Chewie sounds like to Han, crank up the volume and wonder no longer!" That's it. There are thousands of people, including myself, who have never seen this in the 10-15 years since it was apparently first posted. For someone always getting annoying by all the Star Wars snark, you sure do offer a ton of it up yourself.

Yeah I'd never heard that. Pretty cool.
