"let's see...is Artoo positioned behind JJ's chair? Good. Now we have to make sure that Harrison is seated right next to JJ and we've got our shot!"

 

max von sydow, huh? lemme guess...bad guy? doesn't matter...as long as they don't make him do any fakey CGI front flips like Chris Lee.

Also..."...everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud.” - that's a red flag for me. Shouldn't it read "doing their best to make a great picture?"

I seen earlier on FB that the movie will be called "The Order of the Jedi"

 

Yuck...I hope not...that would confirm a great deal about where this is heading. Im sure youve all heard enough of my railing against the need for Jedi in a post-Palpatine galaxy (not to mention the failings of the old order im sure that they're just going to ignore), how cheap and easy it is to just present us with ANOTHER sith uprising, and lightsaber fights because, "Dude, they're like...swords...except, with lasers...and more awesome."

 

"Jedi" should be a part of the SW saga, but not its whole identity.

 

wouldn't be surprised if "A New Dawn" was a red herring.

 

because it doesnt make sense for one thing...a new dawn for who? The new republic? that would imply there is no conflict, unless they have been in conflict ever since we left our heroes 30 years back. A new dawn for the Sith? Not very bad-guy sounding.

 

 

In other news, here is some nerd word vomit:

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/08/07/star-wars-episode-vii-a-newer-hope

to summarize: "Believe in SW because George Lucas isn't doin it. George Lucas = bad. JJ Abrams = good. He made Star Trek make money. The CGI will be good. Also, no Jar Jar...um...LARRY KASDAN!"

 

More to come...

It is also the name of the new Rebels introduction novel.

I like Wedge as much as the next guy but things will be just fine without him. These periphery characters can always give you the warm-fuzzies of nostalgia but they don't have anything to do with the essence of what Star Wars is.

 

If only the Boba Fett costume had the ability to declare boredom and guarantee a no-show.
