I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Same here. It gave me the feels.

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

So Julie and I are planning to be at Disney at the time this opens. Betting there will be lots of special events there for this.

Not a lot there? Within another hour or two, 10000000 posts will be on the internet examining why the ships are trailing red smoke, and not blue or green or black.....let alone what "balance" means.

 

That balance line in the first SW film has really messed up the mythology for me. Is it balance we need, or good we need? What is balance? And no, I'm not going down the rabbit hole of the internet on that today. Not. Happenin'. I hope.

I like the balance argument. It's fun.

 

But I just refuse to read too much into any trailer with that little action in it. It's a bunch of teasing without much meat on the bone.

 

Of all things, this is what stood out to me the most:

Because I immediately thought of this:

Yeah, it's pretty funny. I believe that poster was mostly discarded and instead Fox used this poster, which is a lot more accurate regarding the look of the cast.

 

But that star still stands out to me in the trailer. It's so similar that has to be intentional.

So we have Luke at the original Jedi temple, Rey pouring over an ancient manuscript with a lightsaber symbol, the title "The Last Jedi", Rey's lightsaber combining blue/red, and I think we have the makings of a film that's going to do one of two things:

 

1. Explore the origins of the Jedi Order and what came before it

2. A shift away from the dogmatic light/dark principles of the prequels Order

True, but I had speculated that's what the film is about before trailer released. It makes sense given the title. I never thought the Jedi would die, I thought the order would likely move on in some capacity.

 

They already dangled that idea with the Sith/Knights of Ren. It makes sense the Jedi would react similarly.

So the Jedi will be Gandalf the Grey, and not in white?

 

on a side note, it's always been interesting to me that the stormtroopers are in white, not black....

Gandalf the Many-Colored!

 

I suspect Stormtroopers are white simply because it films better. It's easy to make a stark profile in white, not so easy in black.

I predict Empire Strikes Back with flashier visuals.  Like the first one.

I hope so! That was my favorite of all the films. I'm excited for the movie. The last 2 have been really well done. I'd even like another spin off like rogue one.
Do or do not. There is no try.
