    The rap sheet at the beginning of the trailer was hack! “Resisting arrest” is a thing in this galaxy? :lol:

    Yeah. If you don’t have a government, how can you arrest people for things? :lol:

    Running at the AT-AT, though? Good money shot.

    BB8: the Imperial Senate wasn’t disbanded until the start of Ep. IV Kev, they still had a government

    Force Ghost Yoda!

    The Real Deal: Rumor site Making Star Wars notes that Yoda voice actor Frank Oz is apparently in the United Kingdom right now for work-related reasons, and is visiting Pinewood Studios. You know, where they’re shooting Star Wars: Episode VIII. The report has few details beyond the fact that Oz is there, so it’s possible something else is going on. Nonetheless, if Frank Oz is involved with Episode VIII, which we know involves Luke Skywalker who has seen Yoda as a ghost previously, don’t be too surprised if the little green dude shows up in 2017.

    More on Vader in Rogue One…

     

    It was reported last year that the Sith Lord would feature in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and that Hayden Christensen would be reprising the role for the movie. We teased last month that the rumour was correct, but Christensen would not be playing the part. That’s because our sources are telling us that in fact British actor Spencer Wilding has been cast to play the body of Darth Vader in Rogue One.

    Wilding is mostly a stunt actor and has had bit parts in Guardians of the Galaxy, Batman Begins,Ghost Rider: Spirit of <b>Vengeance</b> and Wrath of the Titans. We first heard of his casting last year, but waited for more confirmation on the story before running it.

    Darth Vader

    Our source also confirms that Wilding has been running lines while on set, so Darth Vader will have a speaking role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However he will likely be dubbed by James Earl Jones just as David Prowse was when he played Vader in the Original Trilogy. We sadly don’t have confirmation that Jones will be coming back to reprise his role, but it seems rather likely (Making Star Wars were very sure though, and they’re a good source to trust).

    Didn’t realize that guy in the white cape was Ben Mendelsohn.

    That guy’s an amazing actor.

    Glad to see Bloodlines is keeping him around.

    The guy playing Vader in Rogue One is the tall blue guy from Guardians who took Quill’s Walkman at the Kiln prison.

    Why the hell would they scrap this?

    Mark Hamill also spoke about how someone actually leaked the first 15 minutes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens correctly online.

    “One day I read the first 15 minutes of the film absolutely accurately” he said. “I can tell you now that in the original opening shot of 7, the first thing that came into frame was a hand with a lightsaber, a severed hand that enters the atmosphere, and then the hand and bone burns away and goes sticking into the surface of Jakku” he added. “and this alien hand comes in, don’t know if it was Maz but it was an alien hand who takes the light saber way, and then the movie proceeds as you see it.

    I think they got spooked that it was right. That’s a bummer.

    Abrams spooks easily. Judging from Lost, Daisy Ridley better not ever be pulled over for DUI.

    Big parenting decision:

    My 3.5 year old is sniffing around my prequels DVD’s wondering why there’s Star Wars movies I haven’t showed him. :lol:

    Those Mr. Plinkett reviews are a little bit unfair and over-the-top for comedy purposes, but that shit about how George shoots in incredibly boring camera angles in his dialogue scenes was right on the money. I was wondering what was bothering me about that, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. They’re all the same – sitting on a couch. Walking slowly, then stopping. Looking out a window and then turning around. Holy shit, it’s dull.

    Regardless of what is true and what isn’t, the R1 rumors are not good.

    Not really sure what “doesn’t match the tone” of the other films means when it wasn’t really supposed to.

    I don’t know what to believe. There were JJ rumors and then supposedly Mcquarrie was on set, then he denied it and now they are supposed to be reshooting 40% of it. Who knows.

    I assume it’s pretty dark, and nearly everyone dies.  Probably scared the Disney execs and they want to lighten it up a bit.  I’m sure it’ll be fine.

    There’s no way they’re reshooting 40%.  The movie is out in 6 months and there isn’t enough time for effects work. Have there been more stories about reshoots since the first, thinly-sourced one?

    There’s been a ton of stories on it. Sourced (though unnamed) and unsourced. The 40% is arbitrary and not measurable but it seems they are reshooting a lot of the smaller character driven moments (which makes sense from a vfx standpoint) and Tony Gilroy is now allegedly involved. If they pull this one out it will be an impressive accomplishment.  Like tabloid divorce tumors once you hear these things they usually end up coming true.

    I’m  not disagreeing with you, but the stories I’ve seen from reputable sources aren’t panicking.  I think Gilroy’s involvement could be a really good thing – I loved Michael Clayton.

    This story, which references EW’s reporting, is pretty calm about the whole thing.

    In the span of like a few hours at the most, Finn goes from calling Chewbacca “that thing” to “Chewie”.

    So weird. It wasn’t like they were playing it like how he got overly familiar calling Han “Solo.”  Maybe that was the intent but it doesn’t play that way at all.

    Fucking confirmed.

    Finally, confirmation of what fans have hoped ever since the project was announced: Vader is back. We have a run-down of the Sith lord’s first day on set, and what his return means for the larger Star Wars storytelling universe.

    The boy has been playing it nonstop since last Christmas. The expansion packs have been really impressive. The Death Star one should be epic. They better have a Fighter Squadron trench run game mode.

    That was pretty good. Something about it seems a little off…tonally. Which is to be expected given the approach as a stand alone. Visually it looks great.

    I liked that quite a bit, really liked the music.  Hope it’s that style in the actual movie, if the other stand alones are Han and possibly Boba Fett then they’ll be a bit more comical/upbeat than this one.

    Finally caught Force Awakens as Starz is running it.  Good movie, I started it late and figured I’d get about an hour in and have to finish later but I made it through.  Driver was terrific as a whiney pants daddy was mean to me Sith wannabe and I liked how the Rey character had some Force skills vs. fumbling around with it.  The last scene was great.  Looking forward to the future films.  Hoping Poe and Hux have a scene where they have an Ex Machina flashback.

    Script nitpick: why have Snoke say, “your father, Han Solo”?

    Doesn’t that later on rob from both the look on Solo’s face when he sees Kylo Ren, and when he tells Leia and her dentures that he saw their son?

    I guess it makes sense that Vader didn’t have to wear the military uniform of the Empire since his suit is basically a ventilator keeping him alive.

    But what’s Kylo Ren’s excuse for not wearing the First Order monkey suit?

    Two good ways Rogue One can end:

    1. One person escapes with the plans, Darth Vader chops everyone else’s head off.

    2. The plans are delivered, and the crew makes sets course to go celebrate on Alderaan.

    I don’t think any of them should escape, plans are transmitted to R2 on the Tantive IV on it’s ‘diplomatic mission’. The spies all die.

    How much more of my money can they get?

    Elsewhere, J.J. Abrams is offering up Mark Hamill’s The Last Jedi performance for your consideration (or rather, the Academy’s). The Force Awakens director and Last Jedi executive producer tells The New York Daily News that Hamill’s work on Episode VIII is Oscar caliber: “I think we are all going to be very upset if he does not win an Oscar, and no one more upset than Mark.”
