What do you want to see in Episode 8


Recommended Posts

Old school style thread-- before rumors were so commonplace...

 

Tell us what you really want to see in Episode 8. Maybe based on rumors that are out there, or maybe something you just want to see, or something you think they HAVE to do to make you happy.

 

Here's what I want:

 

- Lando. If the rumor that they visit a casino planet is true, I want him running it.

 

- Knights of Ren. I want an explanation, I want to see more of them.

 

- Braveheart style lightsaber battle with lots of people on either side. (probably an episode IX wish)

 

- I really want to see a water-based battle.

 

- Luke kicking ass

 

- more R2, less 3P0

 

- lightsaber designs that harken back to the OT, fashioned from old camera parts

 

- Phasma, thrown out of the First Order, turned bounty hunter with a vendetta against Finn

 

- a landspeed chase (like on Endor-- but not bikes)

I think they should change all the force ghosts to this  

I don't know about Episode 8, but I'd really like to see a thread of nothing but Ramon and MG conversing.

** Poe does a series of rolls, flips, and switchbacks and takes out several TIE fighters as well as Stormtroopers on the ground. ** Finn: Woooo!!! That's one helluva pilot!!!   Brando: Meh. I don't se

- Snoke explained, not necessarily intertwined with any of the original six movies or the EU...but I won't complain if so

 

- An OT loction, but preferably not Tatooine...which leaves Endor, Yavin, or Dagobah. May have to settle for Yavin in Rogue 1 here, but Dagobah and Endor are possibilities in Episode VIII given their potential meaning to Luke, Rey, or Kylo

 

- A plot that doesn't somehow tie to a planet-sized super weapon - not because it bothers me, but because I don't want to hear any bitching from those that it would bother

 

- There's always a shot of a neat looking new alien species or location, and spoilers say it's going to be something HUGE and IMPORTANT...and then it's not. Never. Maybe this time, one of those theories turns out to be true.

 

- Maz explained a bit more, but not over-explained and overkilled

 

- Del Toro = Thrawn

I want to see Padme as an old woman.

 

My personal theory is that she faked her own death, and I want her to return. It would fix one of my biggest problems with the pt.

 

I want to see Luke in full badass mode. I'm talking a lightsaber duel that blows the Obi Wan/Qui Gon v Maul fight out of the water. He should be the best Jedi ever and I want to see that.

Poe do some flying that actually seems to make him stand out.

 

Chewbacca as a wise mage - dude's a million years old and still was Han's bitch.

 

Snoke doing something

I think that if it wasn't something that was constantly told, I wouldn't have the problem. It's like if they kept saying Anakin was the most powerful Jedi ever, but we only ever saw him do stuff that every other Jedi did, and saw him got his butt repeatedly kicked by "lesser" Jedi.

-Luke igniting a/his saber. The extend of using it? Doesn't have to be much.

I really really really really really want this to be the end of the first teaser trailer they'll undoubtedly show at next year's Celebration - Episode VIII's "Chewie, we're home" moment.

 

I don't think it will happen, but I can't think of anything else that would get as big of a pop.

Kylo Ren said, "I had no idea we had the best pilot in the Resistance on board," which to be fair could have been dripping with sarcasm on his part. When else are we told Poe is a good pilot?

OH OH OH OH This will be fun, getting to use Pablo Hidalgo against Mara!

 

In The Visual Dictionary, Hidalgo wrote: "At 32 years old, Poe is now the most daring and skilled of the Resistance pilots."

See the above quote. That's twice in the movie that he's addressed as being the best/a helluva pilot. Which, given his screen time, is pretty considerable. And if the Ren line was supposed to be sarcastic, I don't think anyone told Adam Driver that.

I'm all for attacking a script for telling us something and not showing it-- but Poe had THREE sequences that showed off his piloting, which is more than Han or Luke ever got in their movies.

 

In ANH Luke shows off, Han is just sorta piloting and we're told he's "good"

 

In EBS, Luke takes down some walkers and Han dodges the hell out of some asteroids.

 

In ROTJ, NEITHER of them show off pilot skills.

 

And yet, we never question they are both badass pilots.

 

Poe stole a tie fighter, did all sorts of stuff above Maz's castle, and led a big battle at the end.

If we were discussing what we wanted from Ep 6, I would want them to show that Han/Luke are awesome.

 

Really, Lando and Wedge have been the most impressive pilots in the movies, IMO.
