    I have to disagree with that. The CGI of the Marvel movies isn't wonderful at all. For the most part it even looks bad. The ST has much better CGI.

    I agree. Just imagine the PT with the execution of the ST. These movies would have been pretty good then.

    The Yoda CGI in Sith still looks amazing, EP2 Yoda- not so much.

    I think I've never noticed a difference, do you have some specific scene in mind?

    Yoda in 2 looks "shiny" for lack of a better word; he looks way more believable in Sith.

    I wasn't talking about the CGI of the PT, but the ST. But Yoda didn't look that good in both episodes. : P Still better than that creepy puppet of TPM though. xD

    I personally think it's about ending the Skywalker Saga, to put it in a simple reasoning, we might find a whole new meaning of this trilogy later on in the new movie when it comes out though, maybe it will be exactly like how George Lucas states it, like poetry, it repeats. Maybe it might just be showing that sometimes things can always go the same, or they might be taking a whole different turn to have a full on redemption, without a regular death of the redeemed person. It's honestly like poetry, not with the repetition, but it is how YOU as the movie watcher think of it as.

    I think the ST is about legacy... about what Vader, Luke, Leia, Han, the Rebellion, the Empire, Jedi... about how it all influences the future-now and how things of the past changes the present... and about ordinary people living in the shadow of last genereation's legends, being forced to create new heroes and legends for themselves out of the ashes of the old.

    It's like how, from an European perspective, the Napoleonic Wars spawned WWI, which spawned WWII, which spawned the Cold War, which spawned all-ish present troubles, and so one, and its all pretty much just a variation on the same thing, conflicts, and themes. (And yes, I know I skipped over a whole LOT of wars and events there). Nothing stay fixed but everything pretty much remain the same.

    I think the ST is about this, and more importantly the people and organizations existing in the shadows of the past that works to reinvent the past to give meaning to the present.

    I think this is an interesting take on the new Trilogy and you really got me thinking about that now. My only problem with it is that it hurts the legacies of those same OT characters, and I don't think it needed to. I think this would have been an interesting theme if the OT characters were NOT involved, and you have this new band of Rebels/Resisters fighting The First Order, and all they had grown up on was the Legacy of these legendary rebels called Luke, Leia and Han. It would be no different then the Vietnam Generation growing up in the shadow of the WW2 generation (or called the Greatest Generation), and how they had to make their own legacy. Back in the late 60's/70's, the Vietnam Soldiers came home to a portion of the country who hated them (because they hated the War). But now 40 years later, those Vietnam Vets have their legacy, but a much different one then the WW2 generation (but both are heroes). I guess my point is that the powers to be at Disney didn't need to s**t on the OT characters to drive the drama for the new characters, as they could have done while still preserving their legacy too.

    Well, thus far I haven't seen Disney/LFL s**t on a single OT character... They've been all treated with grace, intelligence, and great dramatic development. (Just like Anakin is a very different person in the OT from what he was in the PT/CW). That the OT characters are still around at the start of this ST trilogy makes it so much more poignant, IMHO.

    I think I would be much happier if Luke had only been involved as a Force Ghost from the get go. Just a Force Ghost helping Rey with us not seeing why he is a Ghost. Perhaps books could have better explained what happened to our hero’s.

    PT - the transition from a functioning republic into darkness and evil

    OT - overcoming the darkness and restoring hope

    ST - Bob Iger wanted another yacht

    I hate to agree, but I do agree with this. There seems to be no overall plan to the ST or even to the novels, except to simply make money. And I'm cool with making money, but they have really screwed the pooch.

    I hope Bob Iger and the brains trust over at LFL come up with an actual plan for the next 5 years or so. One similar to what Marvel has done. They wanted to do a Marvel with Star Wars, but it immediately went off the rails when they decided to simply allow each director to do his own thing. Hopefully going forward they will have a plan and will execute that plan.

    If it were up to me I'd do something like this:

    2019 IX
    2019 The Mandalorian (TV series begins)
    2020 I would do a one shot here about Obi-Wan, but LFL doesn't seem to agree with me on that.
    2021 D&D Film I (About the Old Republic)
    2022 I'd do a character based film, say take one of the characters from the first D&D and run with it, as Marvel does. Doesn't have to be written and directed by them.
    2023 Again, another character based film leading into D&D II or they could do a one shot on Ahoska or Obi Wan
    2024 D&D Film II
    2025 D&D character based film.
    2026 D&D Film III
    2027 The 50th Anniversary of the film that started it all. I'd revive the Skywalker saga at this point and do Star Wars Episode X. And of course, there would be a point to it. A full blown trilogy that is thought out from start to finish.

    I really hope JJ hits a home run with IX. They really need to get this one right.

    Sorry to be off-topic, but I have to ask, what’s the fascination with an Obi-Wan standalone movie? I honestly don’t understand the draw.

    It's Ewan McGregor. That's pretty much it.

    A seemingly undying attachment to the old in some cases.
    I already have 3 movies of young Obi-Wan. 1 of old Obi-Wan and 2 of ghost Obi-Wan.
    While I think his movie has the most to mine, thematically and character wise, I don't need it. Especially now that they seem off of the "A Star Wars Story" train.

    I believe seeing Vader and Palpatine after ROTS is the best setting for new SW movie. Want to see Anakin become Vader.
