    People can disagree with you without being hyperbolic.

    Calling the leaks "disgusting" is being hyperbolic .

    What makes you say the leaks are disgusting? I'm not sure I disagree (or agree), just interested in why you chose that adjective.

    The reshoots have me a little worried. Who knows what they’ll change.

    Bit of advice. If people are here to talk about how horrible the leaks are then they're not really here to talk about this in good faith. They're here to spread their misery around. Like the Endgame leak reaction there are just people online who like to Vhlor and moan. Just click the ignore button and move on to the next post. There overwhelming number of people are here to talk about Star Wars because they love it. Even most of the people who didn't like TLJ are hopeful about this film because they're Star Wars fans. If you don't have anything nice to say about a film we haven't even seen then you're not someone who is worth our time.

    I was suprised about the true star destroyers that have superweapons (mini death stars). That gives the name star destroyer at last its namesake.

    @Kato Sai I don't know that I like that. It feels like JJ is doing JJ. Copy and paste. I hope I'm not being too negative, and I hope it makes sense and looks cool AF in th film. But that and the tons of ships behind the Falcon just feels like JJ is saying "Hey more is better!"

    But other wise the look of the film is, as I expected, top notch. The duel on the wreckage of the Death Star, in a storm.. That looks epic.

    Yikes, this isn't how the world works.

    Everyone here loves Star Wars. Everyone.

    If people don't like the leaks, they shouldn't say anything? Huh?

    I haven't even read all of the leaks, so I don't know if I like them or not. But please stop with this "if someone says anything negative about star wars just ignore them they aren't worth it" stuff.

    Different people. Different opinions. Different things to like about Star Wars.

    Personally I wish we could move past world ending super weapons, and focus on the power of the Force. I am thrilled, if the leaks can be trusted, that the Sith Empire will emerge, however briefly.

    Don't apologize for, or downplay the importance of, having an opinion. And you are absolutely right about JJ- "more is better!" is clearly a theme of his.

    I'm surprised how gassed folks around here can be because some ships look cool.

    I agree with this... I'm so excited to be moving past this saga.

    I always enjoy the banter/debate with those I disagree with, even when I wanna reach through the screen and choke you!!! LMAO Its that whole thesis vs anti-thesis=synthesis thing. Even when I THINK I know the answer those who disagree make me reassess. So please if you disagree with me don't ignore me. I may not come around to your side, but you will probably get me to at least think, and that's all good.

    Personally, and I can only talk for myself, the vilification and the derision of those who disagree with us (whether they like or dislike what Disney has done) is part of the problem. Deriding pro-Disney Star Wars folks as simply "shills" (which I admit I've probably done once or twice) or those who have issues with Disney Star Wars as simply "haters" and "negative Nancy's" worthy of being ignored is part of the problem. As Rodney King once said, "Can't we all just get along???" :)

    The more I think about it, the more I wish they'd used Lucas' treatments for the ST. But they didn't so oh well. It is what it is.

    I REALLY wish JJ simply hadn't gone down the road of a super weapon. That is probably one thing I'd change in TFA (that and the way the duel between Kylo and Rey ended).

    There's a difference between debating/discussing and complaining, and, unfortunately, much of the conversation about Star Wars has come to be dominated by the latter, and I have no desire to interact with people who have no interest in non-complaint-driven discussion.

    Is that Shimi Skywalker?
    What GL didn’t realize is the Death Star is almost impossible to surpass as a menance to the galaxy. So when it was introduced in ANH, it was downhill from there regarding superweapons.

    I wouldn't put this as uniquely Star Wars thing. On the internet there's always a group that finds pleasure in being relentlessly negative. I've disagreed with you in the past, but you're not a negative person. So you won't get ignored, but there are people here who are just invested in complaining about everything so they get ignored.
    Again, there's no evidence that there's major reshoots going on with this project. These are all pretty normal pickups that happen with ever JJ project.

    I think that is just further evidence that George really DIDN'T have a 12 film arc planned out (or 9 depending on when he was saying what he was saying). The reality is he had one film and some back story information type stuff (notes, etc...) but he didn't have a massive plan for all of it.

    I didn't even mind seeing a 2nd Death Star in Return of the Jedi as it kind of felt like it was part of that 3 film arc. But seeing it again in TFA, after I got over the whole "JESUS they turned a planet into a DEATH STAR!!!!" it was like, oh no not this again, so yeah I'm with you on this.

    Thanks man. We do disagree on many occasions, and I look forward to Rian Johnson announcing he's out so I can press your buttons a bit :p:p:p but yeah I'm not negative. I REALLY want Star Wars to be a success. It hurts me when I see my kids talking up the MCU and then they are ignoring Star Wars. I'm like WTF??? But yeah the negativity can be a downer for sure.
