Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi Discussion Thread (SPOILERS WITHIN)

Recommended Posts

Expectations are super high. Abrams had said he wished he was directing it because the script was that good but I don't know if that will change after Disney decided to tweak it.

It will be our 21st century Empire. Freakin' Benicio Del Toro's gonna be a new viliain, right?

Saving Luke until VIII will proved to be a success for Disney. They couldn't just have everyone come back in one go, VII centered more on Han and having Luke there might have compromised with his swan song. Now fans will go see it for Luke but they will also come back for Rey, Kylo, Finn and Poe. I don't think Disney were expecting them to become as popular as the original characters. Especially Rey given how her action figure wasn't as mass produced.

Original choice for the villain was Joaquin Phoenix, who turned them down (along with turning down Doctor Strange).

I'm sure Del Toro will kill it, though, was fantastic in Sicario.

Is Del Toro the only new cast member we know about so far?

No I'm pretty sure they've cast a another new leading female but can't remember who.

I'm amazed how much I wasn't impressed by The Force Awakens, despite being convinced it was going to be amazing.

I expect great things from Hamill as Luke in this next one though, here's hoping.

They cast some black chick. Should keep the black people of Hollywood off Disney's backs for awhile. I mean they have Finn who's become very popular, so if they are smart they let him live and hold on their two black actor quota.

Lucas was smart to cast Sam Jackson. He is black enough for trilogy. 

Sam Jackson was awful as Mace Windu in my opinion. A simple case of casting someone just for the hell of it without any consideration as to whether he was good for the part or not.

Poe is fucking awesome.

Disagree. easily the least likable character for me. he came off as too cool like he was right out of  Bad Boys movie. Finn had some horrible moments as well but was at least likeable. Poe was jsut cheesy with his "too cool" persona.

Yeah I didn't go so much on Poe and his instant awesomeness either.

Didn't hate him though.

Saw someone say the opening crawl of TFA read like a bad Star Wars game, have to agree there too.

Awesome. 

 

Remember back in September or so they were filming in Ireland for VIII? Must mean the everything on location there is done already if they have a teaser up from it.
