The Rebellion embraced the Force partly because it was so opposed by the Empire.

Just finished the Battlefront novel. Pretty good! Lacked a lot of really vivid characters, but the story was very solid. A good look into the rank and file rebels. No Jedi or Sith or other badasses, just soldiers. I put it in the top 3, with Dark Disciple and Lords of the Sith.

On the 4th day till Sithmas, my true love sent to me
Nine Ewoks dancing,
Eight handmaidens milking,
Seven Gungans swimming,
Six buns a Leia,
FIVE GOLD(en) LEADERS,
Four falling Mauls,
Three Nerf herders,
Two Rancor-dragons
and a Poe Dameron in a Force tree.

Just so everyone's up to speed, here's what I posted the new spoiler thread (no current spoilers, just a breakdown of the posting "rules" and screening schedule)...

quote:
Alright, I wanted to preemptively get this thread up, since all hell will likely start breaking loose tomorrow. At which point, from tomorrow through, let's say, January 1 (just to be safe), this thread is where all spoiler-related discussion, reviews, and impressions for The Force Awakens should take place. Feel free to post vague/non-spoiler reactions to the film in the Star Wars Discussion Thread, but anything other than your/someone else's very general impressions of the movie should be delegated to this thread. However, after December 31 - which is more than enough time for nearly everyone here to have seen the movie - all bets are off, and we can go back to discussing anything and everything - including TFA spoilers - in the other thread, leading up to the release of the next one, at which point we'll rinse and repeat.

Here's the screening schedule for the week, just to give everyone an idea of when the spoiler storm will start to hit...

12/14 - MONDAY
- The very first press screenings will be Monday night, in conjunction with the official red carpet premiere at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood. This will be the first time anyone outside of the select few cast, crew, or close friends of Abrams sees the film (which is almost unprecedented. I can't remember the last time virtually no one had seen a movie this big three days before its release.)

12/15 - TUESDAY
- Official red carpet premiere at the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

12/16 - WEDNESDAY
- Review embargo lifts at 12:01 AM PST.

12/17 - THURSDAY
- First official public showings begin at 7:00 PM EST.

So, basically, even though reviews are embargoed for roughly 24 hours after the first press screenings/premiere, expect initial thoughts and impressions to start leaking at some point late Monday night. Then, what is essentially (very) late Tuesday night, reviews will officially be published online, which will make for two-three straight days of having to avoid any reviews/spoilers.

Good luck, and I'll see everyone here on the 18th! (I'm not seeing the movie 'til 10:30 PM PST on the 17th)

Is anyone able to bump the AOTC and ROTS threads?

How do they establish force-sensitive oranges from your average, lay-about oranges?

That's terrible. How much more expensive are those than regular oranges?

They grow on Force-soaked orange trees that once grew in orchards at the Jedi temple of course.

They may have gone a touch overboard on the marketing

In precisely 100 hours from this very moment, the lights will dim in the IMAX theater I'll be sitting in.

(101 hours for many of you.)

Minds will be lost; nerds will be awoken; tears will be shed.

Ummmm.... 100 hours from now is 100 hours from now, regardless of the timezone.

Here's a fun watch:



I didn't know about the Hamill/Abrams dinner for 5 bit, that gives the theory some credibility. Guess this video will be irrelevant in less than 100 hours, but a good time killer none the less.

I haven't read the whole thread so this may be disproven already , so let me know if it is.

Sounds good to me.

Yup.

Anyone ever tried edging? That's what I feel like I've been doing since last November. Once the movie starts and the score starts blasting from the speakers, I'll have full release.
