I personally enjoy all the movies, the Prequels are definitely not masterpieces, but the world building and scope they give is what made me love the SW universe, and if not for them we would not have one of the best shows ever, in The Clone Wars

I personally liked The Last Jedi, but looking back The Force Awakens is kind of forgettable, Rogue One is definitely the best outing that Disney has had so far, I dont have my hopes up for the Han Solo movie


1. The Empire Strikes Back
2. A New Hope
3. Return of The Jedi
4. Rogue One
5. The Last Jedi

Rogue One is definitely the best outing that Disney has had so far, I dont have my hopes up for the Han Solo movie

I don't know.  I am almost banking on the Han Solo movie.  Why?  Disney knows that if they ruin this that the older fans are likely to bolt from any more Star Wars films.  Go to any entertainment news site and read the comments.  The older generation are tearing The Last Jedi to shreds but they seem to love Rogue One. Disney needs another blockbuster stand alone film to keep the original trilogy fans coming.  They know they can attract younger fans who don't care about the Skywalker family or those connected to it.  They need the Han Solo story  to feel like classic Star Wars, build Han's back story, and feel like it truly connects to the original trilogy so that the early fans will want to continue.

I think this was a big reason for bringing in Ron Howard.  While Howard has no sci-fi cred, he is an incredible storyteller who gives a lot of attention to details.  He's also young enough to have enjoyed the original trilogy and probably understands the cult icons status that these films have acheived.  Others may not feel the same, but I am going to bet that we wished that Howard had done one of the new trilogy films instead of Johnson or Jar-Jar Abrams.

You know what, your right! It makes sense, people don't nescecarrily want the Han movie, but it will help feed the nostalgia on characters we know, just as Rogue One's best scenes were related to characters we knew

Looking forward to see what Ron Howard does with it. I have liked them all so far with "Clones" being OK but the weakest of the bunch. Rogue was pretty good as it is a stand alone and no sequel can be made.

Don't know if it is true or not but there is/was talk of an Obi-Wan movie and Ewan McGregor has intestert in the role. I think that would be cool.

Last Jedi was enjoyable. Without giving away ANYTHING in this thread I do believe some of the questions from this movie will be answered in the next movie.

Ewan said yesterday that no one has talked to him about an Obi Wan movie. I have a feeling he's just doing his best to cover because I can pretty much guarantee that Disney is making this film. I can feel it, I can sense it.

And they'd better call it Kenobi: A Star Wars Story!!!!!

I enjoyed every SW movie from episode 1 to 7 to such an extent that they all could be counted among my favourite movies. Rogue One was also enjoyable, but felt more like a big budget fan fiction movie with some "aha"-moments.

I haven't seen episode 8 yet because it's a real nuisance to find movie theaters in Germany that show it in the original version, which means without dubbed German dialogue (a weird need of the German public that still seems incredibly childish to us). There are some possibilities in Berlin, but they aren't good options at the moment with my wife being pregnant and all. But sometimes they show the movie in English at the main station in Potsdam, so we are hoping for that now... Razz

You are in a safe place here, no spoilers. I really enjoyed it as did everybody I went with. My best friend enjoyed it as well and he is an extremely harsh critic of most movies.

You bring up an interesting point. I too have never seen a Star Wars movie alone, not even in my own house! However, I have gone to the movie theater countless times by myself for other movies. It's one of my favorite things to do.

I withhold all judgment on The Last Jedi until I've seen Episode IX.  The Last Jedi could be terrible or excellent depending on how the story arcs play out in the next movie.

Let's be fair on ranking them too.  Not trolling or trying to start a fight but our own criteria play in to how we rate them.  As a STAND ALONE movie The Empire Strikes Back is terrible.  The worst of the bunch except maybe Revenge of the Sith.  As a piece of the larger saga it is the most important one.  It is the glue that holds the entire saga together.  I'm also going to rate anything from the prequel trilogy low because I'm such a huge fan of the classic trilogy that anything that contradicts it is Star Wars heresy.

We have Force Awakens on BluRay. Got it for a Bday gift and didn't have a BluRay player so I went out and bought a cheap one (had been waiting for an excuse to get one). Lo and behold a year later and we have never watched it. No one wanted to sit and watch it with me.

Here is what I remember:

1977 - Saw Star Wars. I was 6. Saw it with 3 of my older brothers. Don't remember a whole lot about it other than when they asked me if I liked it I said "Yes, but Star Trek is still better".

Summer of 1980 - Saw Empire with my brother Tim. What I remember about this one is having to pee really bad and he wouldn't let me go afraid I might miss something spectacular. Love Empire.

Bought this on 45, probably the same summer:



Played that 45 over and over and over and over and over.... Loved it! Still think it's pretty cool although dated.

1983: Saw Jedi with some cousins while visiting them in Michigan.

Saw the trilogy in the late 80's or early 90's again in theaters with friends.

Saw the prequels with my son and wife.

Before Force Awakens had my daughter watch all 6 in order (not of release date but the prequel followed by the trilogy and I wish I would've had her watch Episode 4, 5 & 6 first now). She saw Force Awakens before me with her school. I saw it the next weekend with my wife. Wife didn't care for it at all.

Rogue One: Daughter saw it again with school, we saw it the next weekend. Wife didn't care for this either and said she was done.

Last Jedi: Saw alone because my wife and daughters did not want to go. Our son saw it the week before called to tell me how bad it was and I told him if he gave any spoilers I would hang up on him. So he didn't spoil it, just said it was "terrible and pointless".

So I saw it and actually loved it! Told my wife and daughters I liked it and they still were not interested.

Alone is how I do most movies.  My wife and I don't share the same tastes in movies.  She didn't see a point for a new trilogy and wouldn't watch The Force Awakens either.  Not having but a few acquaintances and almost no real-time friends, I do most things alone.

I feel exactly the same way about Empire.  It's a collection of important plot points that gets us to Return, but as a movie I thought it was incredibly boring.

As for the Han Solo movie, I'm not too giddy about it. Since it is about his life pre-episode 4, I don't think there will be much space for character development. He started out as a fairly flat character, and there's not many ways the makers of the upcoming movie can make something good and credible out of that.

The only viable option I can think of is some kind of tough guy movie in the Star Wars universe. But that may be too macho for Hollywood's tastes Laughing

Well, we will get to see some scenery. Definitely some cantinas and poker games and a young Lando. Hopefully we'll get to see the actual poker game where the Falcon was won. Perhaps even when he meets Chewie.

We also need to see the infamous Kessel Run. Seeing Han drop his load to prevent being boarded by the Empire would be cool as well. He was smuggling Spice, a Star Wars narcotic, for Jabba. Spoce was illegal in the Empire. I wonder how folks will like it to find out that their hero was a drug runner.

There are enough fun things that can be done indeed, based off the in-movie information of the original trilogy. I'm just hoping for a trustworthy Han Solo character; that's the most difficult thing about this movie IMO.

Hey do you guys have Netflix? Of course you do! When you have time watch the first episode of "The Toys That Made Us". It is fantastic!!!! The first episode is about Kenner and Star Wars toys.

Interesting to know Mattell, Parker Brothers, Hasbro and all the toy companies turned down Star Wars. Kenner was the only company that would agree to make the toys. Kenner got 95 cents of every dollar and the remaining 5 cents was split between Lucas and 20th Century Fox.

They discuss all of the Star Wars toys including the hilarious bootleg toys that are out there. And you'd be surprised to know what the original Jawa poncho was made of!! LOL!


Here is the trailer but it covers all of the episodes not just Star Wars (and I think there are only 3 episodes right now but more will be made). Episode 1 is the one you want to see.

They have episodes on G.I. Joe and He Man, will for sure watch those as well, I hope they make a Transformers one bounce

Yeah, I finished up Star Wars and started the GI Joe episode and I noticed in the theme song it mentioned there would be 8 episodes. The Star Wars stuff was cool. I knew Hasbro bought out Kenner and didn't realize they messed up the sweet $$ deal they had lol with Star Wars stuff.

I actually have watched all 4 episodes now, and recommend watching all of them!

Even the Barbie one was incredibly fascinating, bet you did not know that Barbie was based on a European sex doll, used in Gentlemen's clubs

Anyway, also loved the He-Man one as I am a fan of the cartoon as well, also love the G.I. Joe cartoon so thats a gimme

I'm now really looking forward to the last 4

I don't remember--did Solo say HE made the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs or does he say the ship made it?

But he's a drug runner with a heart of gold!

Well, he says 14 to start with and changes to 12 parsecs in "The Force Awakens".  I don't think he'd be bragging about how fast the ship was unless he was the one piloting it.  Lando could have done it, but with even a friendly rivaly between them, I would think that Han would have made it sound like Lando was going way slower.  This was Han's accomplishment or he wouldn't have been boasting.

They have released a synopsis of the new Han Solo film.  Some of the pages where I get info about the new Star Wars films has people all torn up already.  Why?  Because we will see Han get the Falcon and when he meets Chewie.  We will see him win the Falcon from Lando and a fateful day when he dumps a load of freight and gets in trouble with Jabba.  They are crying because they think they are going to get nothing new as far as storyline goes.  Well, the origins were already established, so you are kind of locked in to those plot points.  How you get there is what should be interesting.  Knowing Han's luck, I bet that most of this will be by him making bad decisions and flying by the seat of his pants.  Even as a General in the Rebellion, that is his signature style of handling everything.

I don't know why people have to try to ruin everything.  It is getting where I can't read comments on anything anymore without realizing that people can't be satisfied with anything.

The only thing I am dissatisfied with the Han Solo movie is that we are 4 months from release and we haven't seen a trailer.  They NEED to release at least a teaser.

They will push it back to December guaranteed

I will honestly be really surprised if we don't get an announcement soon, plus if we don't have trailer by February, I think December is a gimme

They have released a synopsis of the new Han Solo film.  Some of the pages where I get info about the new Star Wars films has people all torn up already.  Why?  Because we will see Han get the Falcon and when he meets Chewie.  We will see him win the Falcon from Lando and a fateful day when he dumps a load of freight and gets in trouble with Jabba.  They are crying because they think they are going to get nothing new as far as storyline goes.  Well, the origins were already established, so you are kind of locked in to those plot points.  How you get there is what should be interesting.  Knowing Han's luck, I bet that most of this will be by him making bad decisions and flying by the seat of his pants.  Even as a General in the Rebellion, that is his signature style of handling everything.

I don't know why people have to try to ruin everything.  It is getting where I can't read comments on anything anymore without realizing that people can't be satisfied with anything.

The only thing I am dissatisfied with the Han Solo movie is that we are 4 months from release and we haven't seen a trailer.  They NEED to release at least a teaser.
Well, that seat of his pants thing is how he said he did everything in TFA.

I figure you are right that it was his accomplishment, but it would also be a very Han thing to do to let people think he was piloting the ship when it made that time even if it was someone else's accomplishment.

I totally understand what you mean about the comments.  Like I said on Gary's FB post:  some people take this stuff WAAAAYYYY too seriously.  Chill folks, it's a movie, not the fifth Gospel.

You mean the Jedi aren't real?  Chewbacca isn't anything more than a huge cute carpet sample?  And, you can't really adopt a Porg?

I have to call my therapist and get into my safe place!  lol!

They will push it back to December guaranteed

I will honestly be really surprised if we don't get an announcement soon, plus if we don't have trailer by February, I think December is a gimme

Nah, I think you're wrong, and I'd be willing to bet the existence of Episodes X, XI, and XII to prove it. When Disney pushes a date back, they do it the year prior. I think they are taking the new model of less advertising. The 3rd Cloverfield movie comes out in April and there have been no trailers, posters, marketing or announcements of any kind.

I'm guessing the Solo teaser will drop one week after the Super Bowl.

While I thought the first Cloverfield movie was okay, I loved the 2nd as it definitely wasn't done in a way to make you even feel like it was a sequel until the end.  I can't wait for the 3rd installment to see how they tie it all together.

Oh, now back to Star Wars.

I would think they will do a short trailer with the Super Bowl and the full length when Black Panther comes out in February for the new Solo solo film.

Perhaps, but remember, they skipped the Super Bowl last year. The teaser came out later.

Yes but this movie comes out way sooner


If this truly is their marketing don't think its going to do well Neutral


And are you sure m77 that there are posters in theaters? Is it just the logo?

Because I have not even seen posters online, and people were freaking out when one was supposedly posted but it turned out to be fan made

Also with this movie coming out in May they are really over saturating the market, The Last Jedi will still be in theaters in places well into February

And if it does come out in May, then its over a year and half till episode 9

If they are trying to stay in peoples mind's by releasing every December they won't be doing themselves a favor

Fans will still see it.  They are doing 3 Marvel superhero films this year.  Two of these characters (Black Panther and Ant-Man) will also be in this year's Avengers: Infinity War.  Disney knows how to oversaturate and still get fans to come in.

Yep.  I saw The Last Jedi a couple of weeks ago and saw it then.  It's a pretty bare poster--I think just the logo and the May 25 release date.

Donald Glover as Young Lando--I like it.  He doesn't quite have the charisma and swagger of Billy Dee Williams, but I think he'll be a great Lando.

Has anyone seen anything verifying Mark Hamill's story that the original script for The Force Awakens had the movie opening not with the Star Destroyer looming over Jakku, but with Luke's severed hand and lightsaber floating through space, entering Jakku's atmosphere (where the hand burns away), the lightsaber falling into the sand, and an alien hand (possibly Maz's) picking it up and taking it away?  I sure hope this was some kind of April Fool's Day interview or something, because I cannot fathom anyone being hired to work on such an iconic film franchise by such a reputable production company who thought this was anything but a stupid idea.  I mean, it would work for Spaceballs 2, but not the relaunch of Star Wars.

It's true, but the average joe is not necessarily gonna go see it, which is what brings in most the cash

I saw that comparing The Force Awakens to The Last Jedi, that domestically TLJ has made 300 million less than the TFA

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/showdowns/chart/?id=starwarsdisney.htm

I mean of course Disney does not care as long as it makes money, because you for sure can bet there will be a Star Wars movie every single year until they milk it dry

Yep. I imagine that the Obi Wan movie is in full swing WITH Ewan McGregor and Episodes X, XI, and XII are already on the drawing table. I imagine they are also working on a Knight of the Old Republic movie too.

Well a week or two ago, McGregor said he knew as much as we did about an Obi Wan movie, and is open to doing it, if Disney will let him, so at this point I don't think they have started yet

And Johnson said that the next trilogy will be "completely new and will go to a never before seen part of the galaxy, with completely new characters unrelated to the Skywalker family" so I'm not sure it will actually be called episode 10, 11, and 12

Also I would love a KOTOR movie, but I don't see that happening until they do a Boba Fett movie, and other characters from the main movies

They made everything else non-canon so they could potentially completely change the Old Republic era, if that is even what they will call it Sad

That's all I know.  I'd say probably not, but who knows.  Of course Barf and Dot Matrix are not available, although it might work in the film to do some really cheesy CGI scenes with them.

I've decided to let go of my hatred for the prequels.

For so long, I've wished that we could erase them from history, or that someone would remake them, or, or, or...

But now I'm just letting them go.

I do own all 3, and do watch them once a year. Whenever a Star Wars movie comes out, as a family, we sit down and watch all movies in chronological order (not release order), and whenever we do, I enjoy the scenes that I like and occasionally, I'll see something or hear something I had not heard before.

But now I'm just going to let them fade. In future years, when we do our little "marathon" (which usually takes 3-4 weeks), I'll leave out the prequels. We have so much material now that I'm just going to let I-III fade into history. Plus, I can always fill their spot with animated features like, 1) Star Wars: Clone Wars (animated series, 2003-2005), 2) Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008, animated movie), 3) Star Wars: The Clone Wars (animated series, 2008-2015), and 4) Star Wars: Rebels (animated series, 2014-present). I am consciously skipping Star Wars: Forces of Destiny (animated series, 2017-present), or, what I'm calling, a poor attempt by Disney to market Star Wars to little girls.
