    Watched an interesting bit here about the Jedi in Episode 7 around the 2:20 mark:


    Basic take away - don't expect the Jedi to fit with past expectations. Hmmm...what can that mean? I'm beginning to suspect that we are in for a bit more ambiguity than we've had in the past with Star Wars films.

    In IV-VI - good and bad were pretty clear cut. Darth Vader is in black and he's bad. Leia's in white and she's good. By VI we start seeing the transitions between the two. Luke is in black and is tempted down the dark path but ultimately wins the battle and brings his father back to the light as well.

    In I-III good and bad are a lot less clear cut. Sure Darth Maul is bad. Sideous is bad (when he's not pretending to be good). The Jedi are good - but arrogant and perhaps the Order has become weak and dogmatic by the time of the prequel films. Qui-Gon is one who wants to keep on the clearer path among the Jedi.

    I think we are in for a much darker (emotionally) and much more "adult" take on the Star Wars universe (in much the same way that Iron Man is a more "adult" movie than say Superman with Christopher Reeves).

    This will be a film of more shades of grey - and not the stark contrast of black and white.

    It's been 30 years since Luke "saved" the galaxy. Yet, he hasn't. The Empire is still around. Maybe they are providing more order and security to their citizens than the Alliance is? Are Jedi the protectors of truth and justice? Or are they Alliance enforcers and soldiers on the front lines with the Empire? Do the Empire have their own brand of Jedi who consider their cause just as correct as the Jedi in the Alliance? Is Driver an advocate of the Dark Side because he sees that the light side just isn't winning on it's own and there must be another way? (Especially if Crazy Luke, the most powerful light Jedi in the galaxy, is a babbling idiot.) What's Leia's role in all this? How much has she compromised over the last three decades in the name of peace and security?

    I think we're in for some interesting times!
