    Interesting, she has her staff again without the vest.

    Isn't her vest lying on the ground? Cool pic though.

    This picture confirms Yoda is not on the rock. If there was any doubt.

    It looks like her vest yeah. Maybe she took it off to train better? Maybe she is training with her staff before Luke feels comfortable giving her the lightsaber.

    And since it looks like it's close to when she is swinging the Skywalker saber, maybe this is before Luke gives it back to her?

    This is probably b4 she starts swinging her lightsaber. She doesn't have it on in the teaser.

    Found this post a few weeks back. Read the comment. Very cool!!

    I also blew the photo up and it looks to me, it's not her vest on the ground. It looks like the backpack she carried up with her to Luke or it could be both. Which you can also see in the bottom photo, under the tip of her saber.

    a saber and a staff are two completely different beasts.

    The implications of this photo could shatter all that we ZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz


    Sorry. I would've loved this picture...14 months ago.

    I don't think I'd have cared if they released it at SWC.

    At least Daisy's veneers aren't distracting from the complex forms that pop thanks to tZZZZZZzzzzzz

    ok? and you felt the need to post this....why? It's just a neat little photo that got released, it's nothing serious or anything.

    Funny, I was thinking the same about Yahoo movies...

    I know why you started the thread. This is a legit piece of news and lots of people find it interesting.

    I'm not criticizing the thread. Im saying it's pretty %#^€ed up that THIS PHOTO is considered news 4 months from release.

    It's basically her vogue posing in what she had with her and what she was wearing at the end of TFA...

    I'm not content with the pace of news promoting TLJ.

    A certain level of cryptic publicity is cool a long ways from release. IMO, we blew by that point around Memorial Day.

    I was reacting to the photo. The people oooohing and aaahing over her vest and luggage implications were too. I want to like this stuff, but LFL not releasing anything until SWC cost them the easy positive reaction of low hanging fruit like this picture.

    I like cognac and cookie dough ice cream. You liking cookie dough ice cream but being ambivalent about cognac doesn't lessen my enjoyment of you tell me that while sitting at the next bar stool.

    I even begged your pardon.

    KK is holding out like a virgin odd that we haven't gotten a decent trailer yet, I think a trailer will reveal too much and they want to show as little as possible. By November with all the TV spots it will be all over the place so why hold out? we haven't seen Snoke yet in any of the marketing I think something is up.

    Agree. One more picture of Rey on a rock. I'm so over it. Show other major characters at other locations. Hell, show a pic of Rey somewhere else.

    I wholeheartedly endorse this post.

    I understand you want peak excitement at the time of release and/or ticket availability. They're going to "spoil" the movie with 175 kinds of TV ads by Thanksgiving.

    Their commitment to a footage embargo from SWC until Labor Day FEELS vindictive. I'm not saying that's why they do it, but they know the diehards are paying attention and withholding a new trailer until possibly October only bothers a large portion of the people who spend money on your product consistently.

    Exactly. I mean it literally could have been taken during TFA.

    Yeah- They must've photoshopped out the scores of dead porgs surrounding her, -as well as the dripping gore from her staff. ;)

    While I agree that the time for "releasing" such a photo was probably winter/spring of 2016, --for myself, this photo still underscores my personal hopes, anticipations and expectations of TLJ.

    There really isn't all that much about the new series that utterly thrills me, I certainly enjoy it, --though I expect my *peak* relishment will involve three potential/expected events-

    (i) -the Luke/Rey training + revelations of Jedi/force lore. I'd like this to hold TONS of screen time.

    (ii) hardcore lightsaber scraps.

    and

    (iii) whatever spacey battle "pew-pew-pew" action I can get.

    These three aspects of SW are what make my inner eight-year-old squeal. I want as much of it as I can get. Everything else is secondary (for me.)

    The photo may indeed be too little, too late... but I still quite like it!

    Not really sure what to make of the photo. It doesn't feel like we're getting any new tid bits as has been the case with the very slow leak of information regarding virtually everything else (FO and Resistance vehicles in particular lately)

    It likely connects with the scene we saw in the BTS vid of her training. Basically it's more of the same stuff we already know, and new for people who never watched the trailer.

    Not necessarily disagreeing with you, it's just the end result is somewhat underwhelming due to the timing of it. The BTS and the trailer are far more compelling than this photo. All of the photos I've seen released at least revealed something new. This photo? I kinda scanned it for a second to see if it was showing something that maybe we had missed, and nothing jumps off the screen at all. But as you said, if you haven't seen it before, maybe there's some value to it.

    I think that's the problem. People were majorly hyped from the BTS vid and probably expected things to only get bigger. Now it feels like the well is running dry.

    Yeah I think we, the hardcore fans, are also part of the problem. We may have reached a critical mass on Episode 8 speculation. Like, based on what we've been given so far, how much more can we parse and analyze it in a meaningful way? From their perspective, I know they don't want to give to much away (and I don't want them to either) but we've been speculating at a steady state that feels like it's declining because there's just not much more metadata to examine at this point (IMO)
