Re: Cool Trailers

You know what? As long as he doesn't retcon Rey's parents, I'm okay. I get to experience this series I've loved since I was a kid one last time, and that's all I need. Give us hell, JJ.

Also, this looks absolutely STUNNING. Dan Mindel is pulling out all the stops.

Re: Cool Trailers

yikes CHILLS. Yeah man I cannot wait. Same with hoping JJ doesn't retcon her parents, but otherwise... man so much of this seems cool and new and exciting, and so much looks like awesome OT era stuff that we wanted more of. (A Y-wing doing cool maneuvers! The new crew piling into the Falcon's cockpit!)

Re: Cool Trailers

I'm beginning to get a little more confident that they won't retcon Rey's parentage. Thank goodness.
I *think* that Rey will be handed (by all the force ghosts) the mantle of "Skywalker" which will serve as an open caretaker of Force knowledge, rather than an exclusive "we're the only good guys" vibe of the Jedi order.

Here's hopin'

Also I'm looking forward to this, one way or another.

Re: Cool Trailers

Well, I am still sitting on a bet from four years ago, with Writhyn, that Rey's gonna turn out to be a Skywalker.

(Not because it'd be better for 'story reasons,' but because boring corporate storytelling chooses boring rhymes.)

I hadn't considered how much more likely that became when JJ took over. Homeboy will do anything with canon.

So.

Re: Cool Trailers

Wasn't that bet time-based? Like, it was a "by star wars 8" thing. But if 9 pulls another turn, I'll happily pay back the $20 you sent me tongue

Re: Cool Trailers

If Rey turns out to be a Skywalker, I'll officially claim that John Williams warned us by building Rey's theme on the same structure as Luke's.

Re: Cool Trailers

If JJ recons Rey to be a Skywalker, I'm gonna be so pissed. I much prefer her being a nobody. Anybody can have the Force. You don't have to be a bloody Skywalker for it.

Also, rhyme for seeing Threepio without his outer shell, Episode 9 to Episode 1?
