Re: What SW are you looking forward the most 2019?

The poll says "Star Wars Products," so I'm going with the new 8" Darth Vader Black Series Action Figure from Hasbro. The TV stuff doesn't grab me; the prospect of E IX fills me with dread...or revulsion, depending on whether I'm feeling optimistic or pessimistic at the time. Absolutely, that is a S...

Mags I predict a teaser will arrive in 35 days for SW Celebration. How much more news we hear will be anyone guess but probably not much.
I think you're right. Another possibility is that it might drop sooner with an extended trailer for Celebration.

Re: Star Wars Episode IX (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Maybe it’s me getting old, or perhaps something else, but I just have very little interest in IX. Do you guys remember the fun we had making predictions for the PT?! Aye, I remember those times. That's what brought me to the Galactic Senate. This time around I'm not even sure I know the PT well eno...

Principal photography has finished and the wrap party has been held. Some of the cast has posted on Twitter if you want to see the party

Only 10 months (give or take a few days) to the movie's release.
And hopefully we'll get a trailer soon.

Re: Last Television Show Watched

I'm not a fantasy fan, but I was talked into watching Game of Thrones . I've bingewatched it on HBO and am currently on the last episode of season 6. What is your thoughts on it? I liked it! Though some plot elements were predictable, the series as a whole wasn't. The money put into the series, the...

Re: Star Wars Episode VI Return of the Jedi

Yes, that's absolutely true. TFA also broke the rhyming by having a non-Skywalker destroy Starkiller Base (Droid Control Ship - Anakin, Death Star I - Luke, Starkiller Base - Poe). ROTJ broke this rhyming DS 2 by Lando and Wedge. No, it really didn't as it was the rhyming between the trilogies, not...

Re: Star Wars Episode VI Return of the Jedi

JJ Abrams managed to rhyme to some degree, but the rhyming between the OT and the ST got shot out of the water with TLJ (that movie rhymes better with Spaceballs ). And as we've discussed in other threads, Abrams/Kasdan took it too far in TFA, too note-for-note and too intrinsic to the backbone of ...

Re: Star Wars Episode VI Return of the Jedi

Caught a bit of ROTJ over the weekend, the scene on Endor where Vader and Luke are talking. Luke I think had his back turned and Vader ignited Luke's saber. I thought of the scene in ROTS where Palpatine has his back turned, asking "are you going to kill me?", when Anakin ignited his own saber. Not...

The first episode only released last week here in Oz. It s ok but too early to make a full judgement on the characters.
No, I haven't seen any channel carrying it here in Sweden.
