    For a moment, I was really shocked because I read a "10" instead of "18".
    Dark Side Typography. (emperor)

    I will watch TFA before watching TLJ. Maybe I will watch ANH together my 6-year-old son for the first time. (luke)

    I’m doing it sort of the other way around.

    I’ve got mock exams on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (woo) before I finish college for Christmas, and then I’m seeing the film at a midnight showing on the Thursday. And again later that day. And again that weekend. And again the following week. And again the following weekend. :D

    I’m going to be devouring the Visual Dictionary and Art Book (as has become something of a tradition) for the following week or so after the film’s release, listening to the OST while I’m at it (which I plan to do an in-depth analysis of).

    These next few weeks are going to go fast, and I can’t wait! :D I’m also watching a SW film every weekend in the lead-up; today is a double showing with RO and ANH :p

    I ordered the art book for TLJ long ago. Being a graphic designer myself, it's one of the aspects I'm most interested in.
    Sadly some of the ideas and the designs in those books work so much better than what actually shows up in the films. Especially the concepts for a junkyard planet in TFA are much better then Tatooine 2.0.

    my sister is coming to town and we're going to the double feature, which means taking a day off from work.
    then i have tickets for the following day, Friday (also a vacation day) with other friends, followed by presumably a massive spending spree at B & N so that i can spend the rest of the weekend reading through all the books. : D

    18 days left can't seem to believe it. 2 year wait almost over... I'll be seeing it on the 14 and 15. Devouring any Star Wars related literature I can find, I pre-orderd the Art of TLJ which is a tradition for me for every Star Wars film, visual dictionary, and incredible cross-section book, its a shame we have to wait months for the novelization, and if I have some time start work on Tatooine diorama and sketch book.

    Hooray. 18 days until the permanent splitting if the fan base.

    The ST was meant to unite the fans, not divide us further.

    I think that most fans will adapt and ultimately accept whatever we get no matter how badly we want or don't want some things to happen. It's not gonna be bad after whatever initial outrage that there is.

    Friend, i go back, way way back, before the dark times. Before dial up internet! There r still people who don't like Vaders redemption & even more that Leia is Luke's sister.

    Although there numbers r now fewer over the years they still exhist. Look at all who still hate that HC replaced SS as a Force Ghost. That's going on 20 years.

    Finally look at all who say Han's death was pointless. You younglings may not c it but us SW veterans do. This is y i think TLJ maybe the final straw, the point of no return. The eternity of the division of the fan base.

    This 1 movie will have repercussions 4 more then 50 years!

    as a Star Wars "vet" who loves Vader's redemption and hates the "specialized" editions, i am all-in with the ST.
    if others want to call it their last straw, they can go right ahead.
    but i love Star Wars now possibly even more than i did 40 years ago, and i trust Johnson to give us what we need.

    no, it won't make everyone happy, but that's exactly why we need to come to it (and stop expecting it to come to us).
    for all the people who can't let go of their head canon to enjoy these films, that's on them, not on Star Wars. : D

    I'd say the prequels were more community splitting then the sequels could ever be. There's just no possible way to please everyone.

    "Let go of their head cannon"... VERY well said.

    People need to relate to Star Wars like a Jedi relates to the force... just let it flow through you and don't try to bend it to your desires. The path to the dark side it is...
