Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

I'll honestly be kind of pissed if we don't get some kind of big SWVII announcement at Comic-Con this summer.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

I'm guessing we'll get an announcement of some kind or another. By that point filming will have been underway for several months and both Disney and Lucasfilm might feel comfortable letting something leak to the public.

The Episode name, perhaps? We knew the titles of the three Prequels a whole year and a half or even two before they were each released so we're already in the timeframe for the official release of the new film's title. We'll likely know the Episode title and the main cast by the time Comic-Con wraps.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

I'm not a fan of that idea myself, but maybe it's just a rumor or something that may have been an element in the Arndt script treatment before Abrams and Kasdan took over. If it doesn't happen I certainly won't mind.

After the introduction of

I could actually buy into this idea. Of course like all things, it all depends on the execution.

On the other hand I'd just as soon not, if only to avoid over using the literal "next generation" trope.

Most likely. Given the paucity of actual announcements, it's to be expected that even the more obviously spurious rumours will get more traction, because there's little else for people to talk about.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

I just rewatched the first appearance of Satine, and my interpretation is that they never actually did anything. Of course this could be my bias because I always think of Yoda and Obi-Wan as the perfect incorruptible Jedi who never have a slip the way most of them do. I was under the impression that they loved each other but Obi put duty first and they never even kissed.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Hopefully that "leak" is fan-generated B.S.

The writers can do a helluva lot better than that. Even the lamest parts of AOTC were better than that.

I think Obiwan and Yoda did love each other, but, it was a "pure" love, that transcended kissing...Oh...wait, that's not what he meant, is it

I don't really remember a Satine/Obi romance in The Clone Wars (Yes, a close relationship, but a romance, I missed that?). Is this played up in the novels, or did I miss something? I did rifle through the 5 Seasons pretty quick, and may be forgetting something

I'd say it's open to interpretation either way.

There's no question that there was a strong mutual attraction. IIRC Kenobi flat out tells her that if she'd asked him to, he'd have left the order to be with her. Again though, whether that equates to a consummated relationship is wide open to interpretation.

Put it this way, if memory serves they were on the run together for something like a year back when he was a padawan. By contrast, Anakin and Padme knew each other for all of a few days when the former was a pre-pubescent and then a decade later spent what appeared to be less than a week together before secretly getting married. So yeah, in SW terms there was AMPLE opportunity.

Mind you, if we assume for a second for the sake of argument that Kenobi had a daughter and she shows up in EPVII, then in all likelihood she'd be in her mid-60's in the very least. Seems like a strange and fairly pointless way to introduce a character.

I always thought the whole prequel idea that Jedi aren't allowed to have partners is ridiculous. I wouldn't mind if they retconned that one.

They're supposed to be chaste religious monks

Well, if we assume that Obi-Wan boffed some chick during his Tatooine exile, then she could have been born as late as 0 ABY. So she could be as young as 37 in EP7.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

It's always possible Luke changes the rules for the revived Jedi Order so that inductees can have romantic partners, but in a way I didn't mind the old Order having such strict rules. It made them seem more archaic and beholden to their duties as inefficient and dumb as many of their rules were.

The old Jedi Code helped explain their eventual downfall. They were too rigid to adapt to the extent they needed to.

The "no romance/love" thing was pretty stupid. The Jedi were basically weeding themselves out of the gene pool.
