Something which I find rather interesting...

    Hey everybody it has been quite a while since i have posted on here, and i have never been a frequent poster, nevertheless I browse the cantina everyday to try my best to keep updated with the rumour mill and general information/ speculation on TFA.

    Anyways, to the point of my thread. Don't you find it rather peculiar that we seem to have been given q fair bit of info on the very start of the movie in Jakku from people like MSW, however the rest of the movie seems to be very much in the dark? I feel as though most of the information out there that seems to be reliable, concerns the start of the film, and then SOMETIMES gives very basic/ rough info on other parts of the movie. To me what is so exciting, is that generally speaking, after the beginning section of the movie, there doesn't seem to be much info out there on what happens during the rest of the film, in fact most of it seems to be pure speculation. Don't get me wrong, there are websites that claim to give a general story for the movie, however there seems to be a lot of info on the start where Rey, Finn and Poe meet, brief info on the rendezvous with Han and Chewie, however from there on there seems to be very little.

    Just something that I find interesting, and I'm sure someone would be able to give me a decent response as to why.

    I was just thinking about this myself. I find it very curious, personally. The fact that it's essentially all the information we know AND that it's all they're showing in the trailer makes me think it's quite deliberate and coordinated. :)

    That is how it seems, yes. The issue that I'm having is that most folks are assuming what we've seen in the trailers is mostly all from the beginning of the movie, and I think that's a misleading assumption that most are believing. Nevertheless, We really don't know anything...it's just speculation, conjecture, and rumors.

    Thats very interesting that you say that. I never fully put 2 and 2 together but yeah it does seem as though the trailers only seem to really show the start of the movie. I mean I'm going to take a wild guess here and presume the movie is around 2 hours long, maybe longer, after all most of the other movies are around the same length. So i would love to know generally speaking how much of the start that we hear much about, how much of the movie does that take up? Its very exciting to think that we're pretty much in the dark about the middle and end of the movie!

    I think Yoda put it correctly:

    “Patience you must have my young padawan”
    - Yoda

    I'm glad most of the rumors have been "first act" related. Even though i actively keep up to date on these rumors, I don't want to know everything about the movie. I agree with @Trevor

    Ahh okay on the other hand you make a very valid point. I think most assume that the trailers generally show the start of the movie because of the heavy focus on Jakku, I mean don't get me wrong there are clearly some shots in there that are from other locations, i.e. the X wings flying over a grass environment, however such shots are very brief and not particularly revealing.

    That's an interesting point I hadn't considered. Could be. It all feels so right, though. Fits with the narrative we think we know too well.

    Rey leaving Jakku is for a sure a second Act part opf the movie. Think about it even after Luke sees Leia's message and Obi Wan gives Luke Anakin's lightsabger he still refuses to go anywhere even though he dreams of going off to be a pilot. It wasn't until something majorly dramatic happens that he decides to leave.

    Alot of things need to be setup in the first Act. The ordinary lives of Rey, Finn and Poe and the who the bad guys are. Then the movie will get going in warpsspeed with Rey escaping Jakku with the help of Poe and helping Finn.

    I don't believe that what all we see is just first Act stuff happening at all. Think about it just like when Luke encounters Obi Wan, Rey meets Finn and learns who he is and he is not telling the truth. And they meet because something dramatic happens. She's gonna show him how to survive only something much greater happens.

    Just like Luke she's gonna refuse to leave Jakku until she is absolutley forced to. In a way the way Luke finds the farm burning, Rey kinda goes through the same thing. This will force her to finally make a decison.Finn alters her stagnet lifestyle.

    Well the 2nd trailer has given us some new places that look like some place other than Jakku but not many.

    I think there are a few reasons for this.

    1-Jakku resembles Tatooine it evokes feelings for OT folks especially.
    2-The trailers are teasers. They are brief intros and a little action.
    3-Other locations require more post production and they are utilizing finished sequences.
    4-This thread is proof they have left us wanting more.

    They probably have more of the first act finished in editing than the rest of the movie.

    While still speculation, it seems relatively clear where the scenes from the trailer fall in the movie:

    Attack on village
    ships toward star destroyer
    bloody print
    tie fighter bay
    chromey
    Finn and Rey Jakku scenes
    Han and Chewey
    Falcon flying
    X wings
    Leia
    First order in snowy area
    Luke and R2
    Vader helmet

    Everything before the X Wings looks to be from roughly the first third of the film. How does that match with what "most folks" are assuming?

    To me, it's not complicated.
    TFA will(may) follow the plot-storyline of A New Hope(1977).
    JJ, Lucas & Disney want DESPERATELY to avoid the stigma & backlash of the PT Star Wars films.
    Disney & Bad Robot also want new fans/younger fans to carry over with the Star Wars franchise.
    TFA will focus on the younger characters with Luke/Han/Leia etc filling in the gaps.

    I think Disney/Bad Robot backed off of David Arnt's first SP because it didn't meet this criteria.

    Unless you have the script, you are assuming the same thing.

    I think this was purposely done by JJ & Disney, as they are showing us an environment (Jakku) that we are familiar with (Tatooine), so all of the new environments they are filming will be a nice suprise come December. Right now all we know as that the new Big 3 meet up by fate at the beginning of the movie on Jakku, and the rest of the story is unknown at this point.

    I think this type of marketing was brilliant. They were able to hype us up with a great trailer last week, introducing the new Big 3, a few of the OT characters, and a few of the new villains, while essentially not spoiling anything from the movie.

    JJ Abrams is also known for working in chronological order. He likes to shoot and edit scenes chronologically.
    On top of that, it's clear that they want to show the least amount of footage possible and if you had to tease something, you'll try to put as much as possible from act 1.
    It's also interesting the fact that multiple leakers fake and legit, have expressed their desire to not spoil act 3. It seems that the motivation of a lot of sources is to tease us without revealing the whole thing.

    That makes sense because i saw an interview with Kathleen Kennedy the other day and she said JJ was editing the last 1/3 of the movie right now, and hope to see the first full cut this summer.

    I've actually been thinking this exact thing for a while. I feel like we have a pretty good idea of where it starts--and maybe a bit of an idea of where it ends--but we don't really know how it all ties together. That's why even with all the rumors, "leaks" and speculation, I think we'll all (even those of us who've been eating up every crumb) end up pretty surprised with the final product.
