PLEEEASE let Thrawn appear, and play a significant role!

Probably a vain hope, but there it is.

Thrawn can appear, if Han Solo can just gun him down out of the blue while he's delivering a monologue, about art or something. Sorta like the Star Wars version of the scene in Raiders when Indiana shoots the swordsman with the revolver.

It would make up for the Greedo debacle.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

Same with me. I love the his books for ANH and ESB. Plus I was 5 years old when JEDI came out. Its the first movie I remember seeing in the theater. All my school supplies for knidergarten where for the movie. So its always been the one i have the most affection for.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

Throw in a few EU characters. Some of them are very interesting and fun, Thrawn in particular. If there's one villain from the post-Jedi novels I don't mind assuming a major role in the new Trilogy it's Thrawn, but rest assured that if he appears the continuity will go a lot differently from what we're familiar with in the Zahn books.

And I'm cool with that.

The pound of nerd flesh I want is actual B-wing scenes, depicting counter-rotating cockpits and alien pilots with funky flight suits.

And hell, if we're going to have Thrawn, let's also see some Imperial Missile Boats while we're at it. In Tie Fighter, given just one of those with a reload tender and stand-off opportunity, any and all opposing units were utterly toast.

The Missile Boat was ridiculously overpowered in the games. You could take down a Star Destroyer iwth it.

Yeah, it was so much fun. Running out of targets is what led to the tender disengaging, of course, after final top-off, at least in the original game, and that's when it got more interesting.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

That was a fun game back in the day. I also played around with the N64 Shadows of the Empire game and that one had some interesting and unique ships you could assume control of. It's been eons since I played the thing but I think Dash Rendar's Outrider was a vessel you could pilot and fight with.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

All this talk of the old SW flight sim game just makes me want to hear that Wedge Antille's will appear in the sequels. Doesn't have to be a big part(not like he had any big part in the original trilogy), but the character's name is pretty well known especially among gamers.

I know it doesn't mix with the EU, but it would be better if he was head of the new Rebel Government's military/starfighter forces than just some new unknown character.

Can have one of his kids be in the squadron of whoever is used for the 'next-gen' younger characters.

I'd like to see both Denis Lawson (Wedge) and Ewan McGregor pop up in Episode VII. Denis is, after all, Ewan's uncle on his mom's side of the family.

"Ben, you're Wedge's uncle? That can't be because I know for a fact you don't have a brother."

"I do not."

"Ha! See?"

"I have a half-brother."

Far too many fans know the original release date of Episode VI back in 1983 and realize the significance of May 25th for both JEDI and the original movie.
"May the Twenty-Fifth be with you."

Nope, just doesn't have the same ring to it as May 4th!

I always call May 25 Return of the Jedi Day, anyway.

The original Star Wars was released in my hometown on June 15, so that will always be Star Wars Day, to me.

The Empire Strikes Back Day is of course May 21.

That is the geekiest thing I've read in quite a while.
