    Nerd out here.

    This is the thread to appreciate the old movies, hate-on-but-deep-down-guiltily love the newer movies, and most-importantly rampantly speculate and spread rumors on the future movies to come.

    THIS picture got my jimmies rustled... CAN'T WAIT!!!

    Yeah pretty fucking jazzed for this. Nothing is ever going to compare to the OT, but I have faith in Abrams to at least make a better movie than any of the prequels (seriously low bar to clear here). That being said, I would've geeked out to the Nth degree had they gotten Whedon instead of Abrams.

    Thanks for posting the names on here. Saw this tweeted last night and was like "Ok, I see Mark Hamill, but don't know anyone else". It's all coming together.
    I'm geeked.

    Anyone know if they're going to appropriately age Chewy (if Wookies age similar to humans)?

    Anybody else notice that Carrie Fisher is listed as Leia Solo?












    Darth Caedus, anyone? Would love to see the Jacen Solo origin story line. New Order of the Jedi? I can't say I'd like to see anything having to do with the Yuuzhan Vong though...

    Judging by his complete lack of change in costume between The Battle of Kashyyk and the Original Trilogy, I'd say no.

    Too bad they have basically trashed the EU for the new movies. Would have loved to have seen the Zahn Thrawn trilogy.

    EU is going to have no place in the new trilogy. And this is an IGN photo so don't take any stock in the fact she's listed as Leia Solo. Although c'mon they'll at least be married if not divorced.

    Could we just put midichlorians in the expanded universe column too?

    I also heard that Adam Driver was slated as a villain, which I could see going extremely well. Really enjoy his character in Girls, though it has gotten a little over the top the last season. Perfect for a Sith.

    Yeah he'll be great as a Sith. It'll also be nice to have non-wooden dialogue.

    Gotta imagine Max Von Sydow will be his master, though I'd love to see Luke as a Sith

    Battle of Kashyyk was when Yoda was on Kashyyk (the wookiee home planet) during Episode III, and "General Chewbacca" was present at this time in the prequels. He was portrayed exactly the same when Episode IV picks back up, 19 years after the end of Episode III.

    Another great casting choice.



    And you shut your nerd mouth. Luke is the new Grand Master of the Jedi Order, and will be for life, EU involvement or not.

    Going to be extremely difficult not to rehash any old storylines. Really hoping for something fresh and not a "all of this has happened before and all of it will happen again" kind of circular story to round everything out
