That's Filoni's speculation on it being Rex. I don't really buy that as evidence.


If Filoni says it, that's pretty strong. He's a powerful voice in shaping the canon. He can make it happen.

Not that I disagree, just pointing out that his speculation on it doesn't necessarily make it so. IIRC Filoni has mentioned in the past that when throwing out ideas to Pablo, Pablo has said in the past to find another way. So sure it could come to pass, but it's still effectively speculation by Filoni at this point and Rex's story could change.

That's true. Filoni SAYING it doesn't make it canon like in the old Lucas days when he'd make some offhand comment on a talk show and suddenly everyone had to abide by it. The fact that the dude on Endor is Rex hasn't appeared in a canon publication of any sort.

One destroyed the Jedi order and the other the Sith order.
Seems unlikely to see the destruction of the First Order in this movie
I apologize for bringing this back from 5 pages ago (I'm just now catching up), but what if they are all linked, including how Ep 7 and 8 titles read like a sentence? Could episode 8 be the end of the Skywalker saga, and the beginning of another family or something new altogether?

I doubt it's the end when Rey is obviously a skywalker

Guys, DB was actually on to something. They ARE building toward a "trilogy phrase," if you will, and the beginning of something new.

Turns out, this whole thing has been 17 YEARS in the making. And honestly, I still think I'm in shock. Because, randomly, I was able to get in contact with a friend of a friend who used to work at Lucasfilm, and they just passed along THIS...

The Force Awakens the Last Jedi...



The word I'm hearing is that it all began after the horrible reception for The Phantom Menace, where in Lucas was so distraught that he hatched a revenge plan with Robert Smigel to pull off what is looking to be one of the greatest long cons in cinematic history...

I meant an important Skywalker....

Episode Three Anakin "dies" and becomes Vader.

Man, the last time I looked, the thread was on page two [edit to add "of the entertainment board"]...I just came back to check in and see what y'all had to say after the title was released. Five words appear on the Internet and cause "Star Wars: The Thread Awakens" to happen.

Nothing more to add. Keep up the fine work.

Haven't visited the thread in three years? That's impressive considering it's been on the front page almost consistently.

Rumors about flashbacks and info revealed in TLJ

Not really spoilers, as it's all speculation and rumor, but click at your own risk.

Quote:

The Knights of Ren remain a complete mystery. While they were introduced in The Force Awakens, not much was said about them. And their name is never spoken on screen.
False. Snoke mentions them by name to Kylo Ren. "Even you, the leader of the Knights of Ren, have never faced such a test."

This is pretty great.

Have I mentioned I love Daisy Ridley?

Sidenote: It's hard to tell if she's legit uncomfortable, but it kind of looks like it.

My bad, I thought you were saying the thread had 2 pages. But it's probably fallen off the front page maybe one week total time in three years.

You must be talking about a different thread.

The date on page 2 is from 2014.

Edit - oh I see what you mean now. NM. I never see what page it is on....I just look for updates on the watch list to pop up.

Ah yes, the "different point of view" argument.

Right, I meant off the front page of the Entertainment board.

I could see the planet being referenced being what we see in Rey's force vision. Interesting.

Think it was posted on here earlier, but confirmed as accurate by me watching the scroll 30 seconds ago.

Saw a Collider video on this topic a few weeks ago, and it's really never too early to start talking box office --

Does any movie in 2017 have a shot at beating TLJ as the #1 movie worldwide?

There's some pretty huge blockbusters coming out this year, but I doubt anything has even an outside shot. Biggest contenders are probably Justice League, Pirates, Transformers, and Beauty and the Beast, but I don't see any of those breaking ~$1.3B.

NO!!!! Won't even be close. this will top TFA imho.

The buildup will be huge - tons of people didn't even see it in theaters but have since on PPV and DVD/BR and with the death of Carrie Fisher combined with Daisy Ridley becoming an icon for women/girls the audience will be huge.

I very accurately predicted RO at 500-550M domestic and 1.1B worldwide.

My estimate for TLJ is $1.0B domestic and $2.4-2.5B worldwide.

So it will beat TFA in domestic and WW.....but fall short of Avatars WW $2.7B.

$1B domestic is definitely possible. I wonder if a possibly darker tone could hinder the repeat box office though.

I'm not sure how much $ it will make, but I do know that Fandango won't be ready to handle it...
