SPECULATION Do you think we will see any of the familiar alien species in The Force Awakens i.e. Rodian, Twilek?

    I was looking at Maz Kanata's band of pirates, and I didn't see any Rodian, Twileks, Wequays, Jawas, etc...Do you think in The Force Awakens that we will get to see any of the familiar alien species? I like getting introduced to new species, but I would like to see the familiar as well.

    I certainly hope so. I mean c'mon, it's safe to assume we will. They have to right? I love the new creatures though too. They look amazing :D

    From what I read the rogues gallery shot from the pirate bar is only about 1/3rd of the pirates. So I would suspect some familiar species.

    I'd bet anything that we see some OT aliens. I'm hoping for some cool PT aliens as well. I hope their hatred for the crummier series doesn't make them ignore some of the better world building.

    I'm sure they'll be some familiar species and we will all debate if we can make out if that's Bom Vimdin, Chachi De Maal or Amanaman!

    I'd love to see another male Twi-lek character, i used to play as a male Twi-lek on Star Wars Galaxies (still do) so aside from Bib Fortuna male Twi-leks arent very common in the movies.
    I'm pretty sure we will see some of the original aliens though. JJ, I'm sure would want some in the background.

    With the popularity of Boba Fett and Sabine from rebels, do you think we will see any new Mandalorians?

    I agree. I would hope so. If just to have another small thread to connect the three trilogies.

    Agreed.

    Hopefully you're suspicion turns out to be correct.

    Agree completely with the bolded. The world/galaxy building aspect of the PT is one of its great strengths. Star Wars is all one big six (soon to be nine) part saga to me, and all of the first six films have flaws. For anyone to pretend otherwise (and many seem to) is disingenuous on their part.

    One would think this would be the case, but the disdain oozing from JJ for the PT gives me some doubt. The species created in all of the first six films deserve to be seen in the ST if just to further conserve a level of visual continuity across the nine part saga.
