Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

The broad storyline sounds great....... The actual object that kicks the whole thing sounds so fucking stupid, that I have to believe its total nonsense... Until I remembered JJ Abrams rewrote the script.......

I'm actually not a fan of the rumored storyline because it focuses too much on Han. Luke is the hero of Star Wars, not Han.

I'm not even sure how it would survive the trip intact, built to last I guess...

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

If it's his cybernetic replacement hand that was surgically installed after the battle on Cloud City then maybe it was constructed of such strong and resilient metals and polymers that it could well survive an atmospheric entry. Who knows....I'm getting the feeling this might be a test balloon that's been floated to see what the fanbase says, but if it is indeed the opening scene of the new film I'm sure "Star Wars science" and "Star Wars logic" will explain it.

It might not make sense, but it'll be explained.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Well it's definitely an attention-grabber, and I like the idea of these two characters finding an object of Luke's which leads them on a big quest. But... why not just make it his lightsaber? It would get the same job done, and be a lot less silly.

And while I'm fine with Han not having seen Luke in quite a while, 30 years does seem highly unlikely.

Ultimately it just sounds way too unusual and weird a beginning for the kind of old-fashioned SW movie I imagine JJ is intending to make.

I have a couple of problems with this.



I really, really hope this isn't the actual plot.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Interesting look at the X-wing, which confirms it'll have a different type of engine and somewhat more streamlined (but still very 'used' looking and also looks like the Rebel pilot helmet has been redesigned as well.

The blue stripe may be a callback to the X-wings originally being blue, but then ditched for red because it would've messed up the FX.


Also makes me wonder if we'll finally see the B-wings in action at all. They're in a few flybys in ROTJ but dissiapear from the battle altogether because they were too thin to film or something like that.

Ooo, that X-wing is sexy. The engine configuration looks almost exactly like the McQuarrie concept art.

I like the new X-Wing! Very cool.

As for all the "opening story" rumors, I would not even bother to take any of them seriously until we get to the first preview release. By then more solid info will be available to the "leakers".

The x-wing looks cool. Not quite as good as the old school design (I think the changed wing section is kind of out of place), but its just nice to see a complete X-Wing again.

The unconfirmed beginning sounds stupid, so I hope that's just a rumor.

I like the sloping rear section, and the whole thing looks a lot more like the Z-95 headhunter, which was always cool looking IMO.
