    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    The Darth Jar Jar theory made so much sense and would have been an incredible plot tool. Count Duku didn’t add much to the story in episodes II and III (the character was great in Clone Wars), but Darth Jar Jar would have been one of the greatest heel turns in cenamanic history. That would have been a Sixth Sense level surprise back in 2001.

    for those who havent seen this theory (not sure if it was posted earlier)

    It's true, it would have been a real surprise. And maybe they could have pulled it off and helped make that story relevant.

    Still, practically every movie that comes out seems to have some sort of a "twist". It can be great when executed properly, but it's such a burnt out mechanic for me, and often seems like a crutch for just plain old good story-telling.

    Darth Maul should have been the bad guy throughout the first three movies. He should have come back with a vengeance in Episode 2. Obi Wan would have been distracted by his personal rivalry with Maul & that is why he didn't notice Anakin slipping towards the dark side. In my mind, I like the think about Ep1, Ep2, & Ep3 with Maul as the big baddie & Ep7, Ep8, Ep9 with Thrawn as the big baddie.

    I like this...

    The fact that they demoted Thrawn to the Rebels cartoon was such a shame, because he's an awesome character. At least he's official cannon now. They left his storyline up in the air, so it is possible they bring him back if they do more ROTJ-TFA period material.

    It sure seems like they have taken some aspects of the Thrawn Trilogy storyline for Episode 9. Thrawn was laying in wait in the Unknown Regions for years, and it seems like the reincarnated Emperor is doing the same thing in Episode 9.

    Should have just done a straight up live-action Thrawn trilogy as best they could.

    I still believe Ep 1 was halfway decent because of Maul and Liam. Too bad George forgot his mantra of good storytelling and it seems he totally lost his muse of the old serials which were the inspiration of the original films.

    These new movies are a joke, because those making them don't have an vision.

    I’m interested in how much they borrow from the Expanded Universe story for Palpatine. In Dark Empire he came back to life because he had clones on reserve in case he died and he basically resurrected himself. Luke also fell to the dark side in that story too so that’s probably some of the influence for Dark Rey.

    When does Darth Jar Jar get revealed? Isn't he the one really pulling the strings Annie? Me-sa thinks so

    We visited Galaxy's Edge in Disneyworld this last weekend. The attention to the detail is remarkable, truly a new world created similar in detail and craftsmanship to Avatar in Animal Kingdom. Problem is, there isn't much to do besides go on one attraction (another one to debut within next few months), eat, shop, and build a droid. It's not a planet from any of the first three films, which I don't think helps, and only a few key characters from the new films. Watching Rey avoid Stormtroopers really isn't something that gets crowds going. Speaking of crowds, the crowds were low, really low. There were bigger crowds in Avatar, which has been open 2 years now and when that land opened it was a 4 hour wait for Flight of Passage.

    The buyback offer was free dining, so I don't think Disney would have that as an incentive unless the expectations were very soft.

    Yeah this was pretty disappointing when I first heard it. The fact that the park attractions & theme is focused on the new trilogy. I can see why they are pushing the new trilogy, but it's not what the fans want. (meaning the 40+ year olds who are throwing down big bucks to bring their families there). Hopefully when the attraction expands they will focus more on the original movies. They are well aware that attendance is low for a new attraction like Star Wars. Disney really can't seem to get out of their own way it seems. I'd like to go someday when it's finished though.

    It kind of looks like Tatooine, but has the First Order flags hanging all over and the structures are different. The Falcon itself was pretty cool, it's a full sized model and the detail in everything is immense. Even the empty tray cart used by the staff in the quick serve had what looked like laser damage on it. Can't take anything away from their work, but theme wise, does anybody really want to see Kylo-Ren searching around for rebels?

    Internally it's being reported that Disney is blaming the slow month of September on the crowd levels, but again - I saw bigger crowds in Pandora. This and they have implemented entertainment cuts and hiring freezes. Clearly, it hasn't held to expectations. That may change a bit when the new attraction is finished.

    BTW, - Tron is coming along nice, and the buildings for Guardians is freaking HUGE!
