Anyone else hoping Yoda makes an appearance? I don't care if it's just a small cameo of Force Ghost Yoda speaking with Luke, that would be enough for me.

After the disappointing prequels I'm not as excited about this as I should be. I hope Lucas has very limited involvement so we can avoid stupid characters like jar jar and asinine things like "I really think people want to see Yoda fight". Not once in the two decades of watching the original series did I wonder what Yoda was like when he was younger, and if he fought. My BP is rising just thinking about those abortions.

Really? I could not be more excited. And yes, Lucas' involvement is extremely limited. He's basically just there to approve the story, as far as I understand.

I mean seeing what JJ did with Star Trek, imagine what he could do with Star Wars, and with the help of the writer of The Empire Strikes Back.

I just bought the originals on bluray and had forgotten all the crap he put in besides greedo shooting first. Just BC you can do something with CGI doesn't mean you should. I never watched all of the star trek movie or any of the sequel, so my excitement will remain extremely subdued

Yoda might make an appearance as a blue glowie, but I heard they're going to introduce his spacetrash cousin Broda, who constantly hits Luke up for credits, guilt tripping him on Yoda's death.

Dude, the changing of Boba Fett's voice made me the most upset. I watched the movies once through bluray and threw them up into the attic, hopefully to never be seen again.

So when Yoda refers to himself as a great warrior before revealing his identity to Luke in The Empire Strikes Back, you never wondered how this goofy looking midget green goblin thing was able to be a great warrior?

Nope, I was happy with the wizened, spiritual old thing

Are EU books still being written? Are 3PO and R2 still around?

I guess they'll both look a lot more weathered in the new movies.

I feel bad for those that saw the prequels before the originals.

There is no surprise or plot twists.

Lucas really screwed up with the prequels.

But i am looking forward to the new ones.

I wonder if Anakin's apprentice will show up in the movies. Was her story ever resolved in the clone wars show? I feel like it was cancelled before finding out what happened to her.

I think he meant that if you had seen the original trilogy there were no surprises in the prequels, and conversely, the prequels spoiled the biggest twists in the originals. There is no right order to watch the movies* that preserves every plot twist.



*the right order is IV, V, VI, I, II, III, and i couldn't wholeheartedly oppose someone who said that the right order is IV, V, VI, III, fin.

I don't see how they completely leave out Yoda (ghost or not).

Also for those of you that shop on Amazon, this mug is all kinds of epic. Just got it last night; worth every penny.

I kinda dig the idea of IV, V, I, II, III, VI that's been getting mentioned online.

I just want Captain Kirk commanding the Starship Enterprise to make an appearance. Is that really asking too much?

Can one of you explain the reasoning of watching them in an order that starts with 6?

I've never seen anyone recommend starting with 6.

this summer I did a marathon watch of all six in this order, IV, V, I, II, III, VI there is no other order to watch them in.

Once you learn how Roman numerals work, it's the only way to go.

And that is all for now.

I'm not optimistic. Disney is also destroying the EU. The only thing I am looking forward to right now is another John Williams soundtrack.

There are some good stories in the EU, but really who cares if the movies go another way? Star Wars own damn creator doesn't care about the EU.

Children of the Jedi and Crystal Star references in the same thread?

I remember being about 150 pages into the Crystal Star and suddenly stopping and thinking, "Wait, what the hell is going on here?"

For every great EU novel, there were 5 awful ones.

"Hey, people liked that Kar Vastor guy in the Mace Windu novel, let's somehow get him to fight Luke Skywalker!" Yeah!
