I'm still excited:

 

FINAL TRAILER!

https://vimeo.com/143101569

Ah yes! The Holiday Special. Most infamous, and possibly best camouflaged, variety special of the decade that brought us Donny and Marie, the Captain and Tennille, the Brady Bunch Variety Hour, and my personal favorite, Legends of the Superheroes.

 

Sweet Lord, how did we ever make it to the '80's?

You know I have never seen that.  Maybe this will be a good year to give it a watch.  It looks like fun.  Wasn't Life Day officially in November sometime?

 

 

November 17th...had my annual Life Day party with goodies from the Star Wars cookbooks.  Set up the Ewok village to stand in for Kashyyyk, populated with Wookie figures.  A friend of mine gave me a hand painted ornament featuring Chewie's family.

 

Peter Mayhew is coming to a convention in my town in February.  I bet I'm the only person there getting something "Holiday Special" signed

 

 

I watch the Dvd transfer I made from the who-knows-how-many-generations VHS tape I bought at a convention in the early 90s.  It's ugly, but I love all the old commercials that are still included.

Here is a link to watch the cleanest copy out there, just discovered a few years back:

Time for my black out of internet "news" sources to go into effect.  I'm seeing more and more headlines claiming to have "major spoilers".  I never click on them, but I'm finding a lot of the times they just work the spoiler into the headline itself one way or another.  No big loss.  Everything on my "news" feeds are either nerd related or have a political agenda.  I'm a better person for NOT reading.

MOAR DARKER!!  http://www.ign.com/a...mpaign=Blogroll

 

MORE PLANET SPOLSIONS?!  MORE CHARACTER DEATHS?!

 

Honestly?  What else can surprise/shock at this point?  It wasn't a mistake to clone ANH, but it was a mistake to clone ANH and tack on 15 minutes of dramatic weight from ESB. 

 

But JJ has a plan...wow me.

You gotta start a new thread now.  The movie's two years away and you're gonna have a lot of piecemeal information to bemoan between now and then.  It's never too early to start!

You mean the "What else can surprise/shock?"  I have no idea but I could say that about any movie.  I don't have a fan theory about Rey's parents and I haven't gone down the list of black SW characters that Finn could possibly be related to.   I'll let them write it and see when I'm in the theater.  But I can play along if you want:

More 'splosions?  Eh, ESB didn't have too many of those.  If Episode VIII is going to copy that movie, I expect a Carbonite freezing, at least one severed limb, and a visit to a wise old sage.  And I know this is far off, but I'm sure Episode IX will feature help from an army of furry friends.  Man, based on what John Boyega said just there, Episode VIII is gonna suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck!

Naw, based on what I saw in Episode VII, Episode VIII is gonna be mediiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiocre at best.

 

The only surprise that I could see (wishful thinking) is Luke Skywalker taking center stage again.  I guess they could shock by killing off a handful of beloved characters in one go.  Sacrifice the newbs?

 

No more splosions?  But Death Star 3 could blow up like 5 planets at once!  Though I see your point about ESB...guess Im gonna have to wait for Death Star 4 in Episode IX!  10 planets?!  20?!!

 

Finn's dad?  Ice Cream Maker Guy.

 

Leader of the Resistance? Jar Jar.

 

Ewoks?  Relocated following the Endor Holocaust?  Cause championed by ambassador Towani??

 

Chewbacca leaves the team...his son, Lumpy fills the void?

 

DARTH MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUL!?

 

Or maybe Han Solo returns with robot legs?!

 

Snoke is Darth Plagie...er...Vader...Palpa....Mace Windu?!

 

The story of how the lightsaber was retrieved is soooo epic that it needs a spin off movie? I mean, they didn't have time to say something like "it was retrieved by tibanna gas miners and sold thru various black market dealers" so it must be good.  Boba Fett is probably involved in there somewhere.

 

The revenge of Jabba the Hutt's gay uncle?

Feat...your post is quite enjoyable when one reads it whilst imagining it being said in Harry Plinkett's voice. (lol)

Even though Finn drops a couple of hints that he's into Rey, I wouldn't put anything past far-left Hollywood.
