    What’s a Rogue One spoiler? If someone doesn’t die?

    If you believe reddit, it’s that the Jews run the empire too.

    Deaths, surprise cameos, callbacks, callforwards (?), the ending.

    My guesses:
    – Vader kills Krennic and one of the posse
    – I thought the whole time that there would be no tie-in to the ST at all. However, Edwards made some vague comment that could be interpreted as having a tie-in. I wonder if it is like the blind guy is the lone survivor and passing on some kind of Jedi knowledge stuff to Lor San Tekka.
    – Does Jyn die? I go with yes.
    – Emperor seen? Hologram form maybe.
    – Tarkin? Yes. Livia Soprano form.
    – R2 and 3PO? Yes.
    – Seems to be conventional wisdom that the ending will be something with the transmission going through or Leia from a distance or from behind. That makes sense and is what I have thought but maybe they go for something bigger.

    Other tie-in: Like maybe Jedha is destroyed/cleaned out of crystals and they’re like “well there’s other kyber crystals to be mined….on Jakku.”

    I think all of the Rogue One rebels die.

     

    I think we’ll see Wedge Antilles in some form and maybe some Jimmy Smits as well.

    The only Skywalker involved will be Vader.

    There will be much more of a clue as to who Rey’s parents are than we’d expect. Not enough to give it away, but a gentle nudge in that direction

    Mads Mikkelsen will creep everyone the fuck out. Even Darth will be unnerved at what a wacko that guy is.

    There will be some set up to the Han Solo movie.  No Falcon or Han, but maybe Chewie.

    There is a fleet action in one of the commercials, so Wedge would be a safe bet, maybe Biggs too

    Porkins is more than we could ask for.

    Smits was in the trailer so he’s definitely there. Wedge, Biggs, or Porkins is a good call.

    I honestly don’t think the movie can be done with enough emotional pitch without Leia at the end in some form.

    How would you in some way allude to Rey’s parentage without it being overt Marvel post credit fan service?

    Early reviews are very positive.  Apparently some scenes in the trailers aren’t in the final film.  And there are several surprises.

    It’s shocking how good the reviews are considering the story of reshoots and how the studio was worried about the first cuts.

    Also, sounds like Vader is barely in it, but the part he is in is awesome.

    Only at 84%.  Not reading the reviews but tepid reviews look to be from the likes of the Village Voice, Indiewire, and that fagola Will Leitch at the New Republic. So it’s probably badass.

    There is a subset of Star Wars fans out there who seem pre-disposed to hating it no matter what.  Because the world is full of assholes i guess?

    There’s also a subset that will like it no matter what. These are the people who defend the PT. And your theory doesn’t square with TFA getting 90+%.

    You’re right, just had a fervent group of online acquaintances that have been shitting all over this one since the first trailer.  Can’t wait to see it on Friday myself.

    I have been pessimistic since the re-shoots. I hope it is great. My expectation is that it will be very good.

     

    Put it this way – the TFA trailer looked amazing – best trailer I have ever seen next to Private Ryan. I don’t get that from R1. At all.

    There is something to the SJW-ness of force feeding another female lead, IMO. I don’t think she will work. Rey? She’s fantastic. I thought she was the best part of TFA, a wonderful character. I don’t think Felicity Jones will resonate based merely on the acting chops shown in the trailers.

    Lot of the negative reviews are saying it’s too dark, pussies.

    Something about her beaver teeth have always rubbed me the wrong way.  But yeah the trailers while good haven’t hit that feeling that TFA had.  Though I wish the actual music from it was in the movie.

    I know I’m going to be shaking my head when a blind guy beats the balls off of 12 stormtroopers with just a stick. :lol:

    There’s Giacchino music in the trailer isn’t there? I prefer him to Desplate anyway.

    I’m no Spoiler Nazi, but Crying Fag Zookeeper gave something away I wish he hadn’t today. He sucks.

    Sorry, I meant the TFA trailer music not being in the final film.

    Just had a friend spoil Vader’s involvement in the movie. It sounds unbelieeeeevable.
