    There will be Star Wars movies every year or every other year from now until the end of time. Seriously.

    I would think they wouldn't want to shut it down. To much of a money marker and they did spend 4.2 billion for it....

    yup. Consider Star Wars the next Marvel. Wouldn't surprise me if they kept being massive juggernauts at the box office if we start getting two of them a year, like Marvel.

    What I like about Star Wars are all the different directions it can go because unlike the comics, it doesn't have a long documented cannon that in many ways the movies have followed to keep those fans happy.

    Star Wars on the other hand is a bit more wide open. Especially, since they thew the extended universe to the curb. I think it has more legs than Marvel Hero films which people will get burned out over eventually.

    I so hope Rey goes to the dark side. It won't happen, but one can wish....

    Rian said today to avoid the trailer if you don't want spoilers.

    and after watching that, I can only say... JESUS... did that trailer just give away THE ENTIRE MOVIE?!

    I think there is some deliberate misdirection going on. Disney has been very calculated up to this point. No way are things what they appear to be.

    No doubt. Disney is smarter than that.. I hope.

    When Snoke is talking at the beginning about raw power and something special, I think he's actually talking to Rey, not Kylo. Maybe because of this power is why she was dropped on Jakku - to hide her from Snoke. She may have been who Snoke was looking and turned Kylo turned against Luke during his training to get to Rey.

    That's exactly what I thought. When I saw the preview on MNF I was shocked how much they showed... felt like I had watched the entire movie already. But still... no way Disney is showing their hand like the preview depicts... that would be catastrophically dumb.

    Yep, that's what I was referring too. Everything Disney does is calculated. Plus, I seem to recall some clever editing on past Disney films that sort of led you down the wrong conclusion.
