They might move away from it completely later.

 

I'm really liking the show so far, by the way.

I found the last episode to be decent at times but overall not really worth watching. Ezra really bugs me. Here's hoping for more plot soon.

Well, the episode after that was pretty good. Though that was a dirty trick that they pulled on the audience. I'm disappointed I did not see it coming.

I loved that twist. :P

 

Also, the Inquisitor's lightsaber makes my inner child squee in delight.

 

It's something I had thought up in my spare time about 5 years ago.

 

Funny one of the show's creators had the same idea.

Everything with Luminara was pretty morbid and not quite what I expected... I like it.

 

And hurray they got off the planet! :P Just to return afterward though... Yeah I guess it's their base, but to me it still doesn't make sense to keep using it as one.

Today's episode felt a little underwhelming. I couldn't really get into it, unfortunately.

I just wish it had an "Episode VII" in it.

 

Every other rumor coming out is just giving me less and less faith in the movie, though.

I'm just going to come out and say the new title sounds a little generic and dumb... IMO.

So this week's Rebels episode wasn't too bad. Made me appreciate Lothal a little more by being recognized as a shipyard (I don't recall that beign said before anyways) and seeing the oppression some more.

 

But I'm still not going to get over how silly it is for the gang to be sticking around. Especially with so many high profile officials after them and also seemingly based on this planet (which I would also say just isn't likely).

 

At least we'll be getting a proper fight with the Inquisitor next week. That should be exciting.

That trailer was pretty unimpressive. We've got some shaky Stormtrooper shots, a weird lightsaber, some meaningless dialogue in the background... the X-Wings looked cool, and I'm glad the sound effects are being reused.

 

Other than that... not much to talk about. Pretty disappointing.

I think the trailer did its job. To make me hyped for ep VII. I wasnt expecting much in the way of plot details.

i mean i get that it's a teaser but considering what marvel dropped as a teaser just a month ago it's not exactly impressive - there wasn't enough that i liked to hold my attention

 

+ Stormtroopers looked good

+ Cast looks good; John Boyega's talented and if we're getting a stormtrooper POV I think he's a good actor to really react to the inner workings of a post-Palpatine Empire

+ Old sound effects

 

- That lightsaber is ridiculously impractical

- The CGI on the Falcon and the X-Wings is really technically well done, but it feels too pretty; the Falcon in particular feels like it lacks most of the charm the model version from the OT had

- Again feels like there's going to be a lot of the original trilogy being used as a crutch here, just like the prequels

- The reaction everyone is having to this trailer is the exact reaction people had fifteen years ago when the trailer for The Phantom Menace dropped out.

 

I'm cautiously optimistic.

That lightsaber seems to have a crossguard, since the only way you'd get an effective crossguard against a lightsaber is by having the crossguard itself made of the same stuff (energy), but at the same time it really looks like there's a risk of cutting your hand.

if it's any reassurance (and it should be) JJ abrams is a much more talented director than george lucas and he seems excited enough about the work he's doing so the comparisons to the prequels are more likely your PTSD acting up than intuition

Yeah, that is what I guessed it is. It still looks a bit silly, but it is practical.

 

Other than that, I love the redesigned stormtroopers. As much as I love the Legacy comics, I was a bit disappointed that they didn't really evolve the stormtrooper armor as much as they did everything else.

@archer: i'll grant you the point re: everyone feeling this way about phantom menace, but i wasn't even that big a prequel hater (rots > rotj in my opinion, with the first two prequels being the worst films) and i feel pretty confident in saying the constant "wink wink nudge nudging" of all these characters from the original trilogy into the prequels - like boba fett, threepio, artoo, chewbacca, etc - and all the hints about what would become of them were a big part, to me, of what dragged them down so far. i'm just saying that there should be a big divide between what made the original trilogy, with a couple easter eggs along the way, and this new trilogy, and the teaser didn't give me a lot of confidence that that's what's gonna happen

rots was my favourite prequel too. i dunno what you mean about the wink wink thing, but at the same time i guess i never really thought about it. either way, no amount of riding on the originals will ever be as obnoxious as the book about the palpatine clones.
