That is looking darker and mighty fine.
Perfect to contrast the mood of the films in the main line. I like it!

Yeah no, it doesn't really make any amount of sense to describe Rey's character like that.

Felicity Jone's character in this movie sure does fit in the "snarky hotshot with attitude" archetype Star Wars loves so much, though.

i hate how much they keep bringing back death stars in these new movies. the star killer destroyed an entire galaxy, and characters acted like nothing bad happened. no one really cared about those millions of people who were eradicated. it's a very shitty way to  demonstrate how strong the weapon is.
they should be more creative imo.

??? This is a prequel to A New Hope. It shows how the plans to the first Death Star were stolen. :P

They don't want the plans back because they need them to make more Death Stars, they want the plans because they don't want the Rebellion figuring out a weakness to their new super-weapon.

i know. i just don't like how they keep playing it "safe" by relying on nostalgia so much.
they could've for example made a prequel story about any of the battles between the jedi and sith. the sith had very little screen time and were never really shown.

Considering the Sith always only operate in two, a master and an apprentice, that wouldn't make for a very interesting battle, since they were outrageously outnumbered back then.

Ah. Well, I dunno, the stealing of the Death Star plans is such a fun, interesting premise that makes for a great story, (which is why the EU kept telling different versions of it, of course) and this movie in particular looks like it's putting a very unique spin on the franchise (gritty war movie + heist movie) while still recognizably being Star Wars.

Where's Kyle Katarn?
Full clip, I'm a little bit sick, come equipped
Look at what I did for the grit, got it lit, what a cinch
Brought 'em just a little pinch of the truth, and they flip
Now they hanging from my shit, lil' bit
It's the Mensch, the myth
I do push-ups nude on the edge of cliffs
The jewels come quick, all gold and bricked
Click, click, boxer cutter spit
Brother, what a trip

Oh wow, really?  I would've thought Space Chuck Norris would've been the one thing that would've been kept from the EU considering his popularity.

There's a reason why there are only two Sith at a time. They could have made a whole movie based around that but lolnope extended canon isn't important anymore.

While it would make for a very interesting film, they first need to recoup the 4 billion investment they've done by buying Lucas Film, so they won't be taking too high of risks at this point.
Which is why Episode VII was an almost rereading of Episode IV, and why they are trying his heist film set as a spin-off of the original trilogy.
It is a cash grab film that will turn fun and interesting, at least.

I too hope that once they recoup their investment, they try to get a bit riskier and bring in more innovative films.

Oh I understand that perfectly and i'm not against the film at all. I just hope this new character isn't another Rey is all.

And the reason why there are only two Sith without going into the long and sordid history of the extended Universe... let's just say that there is a lot of backstabbing, on a cosmic scale.
