That's not hard. In the back ground of a hangar will be the Tantive IV and you will see the droids boarding the ship.

Happy Star Wars Day

For most this post is early but not for those Senators in Oz and New Zealand.

Have a great Star Wars day and what ever you do:

May the Fourth be with you. :r2: :falcon: :xwing: :bb8: :yoda:

Not sure what happened to Wedge, Ewan may have had prior engagements. As for Natalie, she hates Star Wars. She claims it almost ruined her career. Considering Natalie Portman only had a child recently I didn't expect her to be there. As I mentioned earlier, Denis Lawson aka Wedge was there. Here is...

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I've watched all the extras and was underwhelmed by them. The intros to the characters didn't tell me anything that watching the movies several times hadn't already. The others were dull.

I just hope they won't mess too much with Lucas's mythology... They rejected GL ideas for the new trilogy and they have begun to bring in characters from the EU.

Re: Star Wars Episode VIII (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

I think that by the end of Ep 9 that the Jedi will evolve into something else. The Jedi code will be perceived in holding back their development. This means more like the EU so attachment is allowed, embracing their emotions, etc.

Be interesting to see how much of the rules of sabacc, that has been documented in the EU, survives to screen. The randomiser and the suspension field that prevents a card changing has always piqued my interest.

Yes GL made those back stories so it would be nice to see them. The questions will Disney rewrite history since the old EU is no longer ...

I envision Star Wars as book. In 1977, GL gave us the middle of the book and the proceed to the end in eps 5 & 6 (at that time), Then 16 years later he gives us, Ep 1 which is the first few chapters. If you read novels, those chapters are usually where characters are established and aren't as thrill...
