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

I think a great way to make Luke an the ultimate Jedi is to simply have him march through a battle with his lightsaber lit and in hand, but not even raising it. All blaster shots aimed at him are redirected into one big ball, then he tosses it at an AT-ST or something.

 

I want to see a double-bladed saber again. I'd like it to belong to Rey, and be blue.

 

Lando!!

 

I'd like to see a non-Jedi force user, but unlike Leia and possibly Maz, I want this user to use the force for selfish reasons, like cheat at blackjack or something. It could possibly Luke's attention for potential recruitment.

- 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'd love something more Seven Samurai. CA: Civil War did a great job with its airport scene and the individual characters.

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)

 

- Luke kicking ass

 

- more R2, less 3P0

 

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

 

 

Almost exactly what I would have said on these points.

 

Also want to see:

 

Confirm definitively that LUKE IS REY'S FATHER! With all they speculation, at this point if he isn't, I will be pissed and let down.

 

Luke\Rey training sequences. Like Kung Fu or Master Pai Mei style.

 

Luke kicking ass with no need of a lightsaber at all. At this point, lightsabers should be almost quaint to Luke.

 

Luke should be cynical, embittered, reluctant to get involved again. While training Rey, starts to see there's hope again. The teacher learns from the student. Sort of like an old King Arthur and Galahad.

 

Luke should be DYING. We should see a Luke with the clock running out on his life, so that there is an urgency to pass the torch to Rey.

 

Kylo Ren being trained in the dark side by Snoke, to contrast with Luke\Rey. Possibly on a planet, such as.... or similar to.... Korriban.

 

Kylo Ren kills Snoke after learning all he can.

 

Kylo Ren PWNS Rey this time around.

 

Luke PWNS Snoke in a flashback

 

No cliche lopping off of arms.

 

No planet or solar system killing machines

 

Finn is back as a leader among the resistance. Maybe Leia's protege, to whom she teaches strategy and tactics.

 

Poe flying the Falcon, with Chewie.

 

No force ghosts anymore, and an explanation as to why! (To explain why Luke or Rey can't get help from Obi Wan or Yoda or Anakin)

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

 

 

I initially pictured a battle scene where everyone has water guns instead of blasters, and it took me a solid 30 seconds or so wondering why you thought this was a good idea before I figured out what you meant.

 

If there is a water-based battle, it should be on Mon Calamari, and Akbar should be "It's a trap!"-ing all over the place.

NO. :cry:

 

Yes! Otherwise what is the point of training Rey, to begin with if Luke is going to Mary Sue it all up.

 

You know Luke will probably die, one way or another, so why not have it out there up front that he is dying, or has foreseen his death (Like Cyclops from Krull: Luke knows his death is coming, he just doesn't know exactly when, where or how.) And he doesn't necessarily need to die until the end of Ep 9. But the fact his death is looming should be in there somehow.

 

And if there is an episode 10-12, they can always come up with an explanation why Luke is different than Obi Wan, Anakin, or Yoda, and allow Luke back as a ghost. It's not like THAT hasn't been done in the EU already, anyway.

 

 

 

This is star wars not an episode of seaquest

 

Besides

 

What will they fire at each other? Normal torpedoes? Boooooring

 

;)

Yeah, I don't care much for a sea battle. We got enough of underwater action in TPM's Gungan underwater city, and Geonosis in AOTC. And the Mon Calamari water episodes in TCW absolutely bored the sh*t out of me.

At this point it's all but been confirmed she isn't-- unless they are pulling Khanberbatch.

 

My person theory is this--

 

In Michael Arndt's version the proto-Rey was upfront without doubt Luke's daughter. When Abrams and Kasdan did a rewrite, they obviously recycle a lot of material. They decided to make Rey a mystery, but didn't do a very good job at removing all the obvious telegraphs she was Luke's daughter. Or it' also possible they left them just to enjoy the mystery, cause Abrams is like that, deciding it would be Episode 8's mystery to solve or deny.

My personal theory is similar to yours without any kind of screenwriting evidence. Basically, that it is no coincidence that they "telegraphed" Rey as Luke's kid, but at the same time left many reasons why it can't be his, and why it could be Palpatine's, or kenobi's, or an unknown. Like standing at the Four Corners Monument. Besides mystery, it offers them freedom in writing. If they don't want to be in Utah or Colorado, they can very easily go to New Mexico or Arizona when ever they want.

I'll reiterate what I want to see and add some more

 

-Leia force lightning or SOMETHING

-shirtless Luke fighting like Yoda

-Kylo with a ponytail

-force ghost Anakin returns

-some massive new force attack

-lando Lando Lando

-finn coming back strong

-phasma without her mask

-coruscant

-for the knights of Ren vision to come to fruition (pouring rain et all)

-snoke, sith, kor explained better

-romance, every trilogy has it

-some time to have passed since ep7. They better not open on that stupid JJ drone shot they ended on

The latest rumor I read is that we see Finn very early in his recovery in a "bacta suit".

 

Here is my thinking: Our main characters are basically in 3 locations or heading to 3 locations

 

Luke and Rey at the Temple

Finn, Poe, Leia at the Resistance Base

Ren and Snoke at wherever Snoke is headquartered

 

My guess is that the movie could open with the guys, maybe Kylo's ship approaching wherever Snoke is. Then basically the first act is Finn and Poe going on some mission for the Resistance while Rey is training. Finn and Poe get into trouble which forces Rey and Luke into action.

It seems.like the second episode of each trilogy has our heroes getting separated and they get reunited when they need to be saved.

 

HOWEVER, I think Rey needing to come to the rescue would be too.predictable. how bout if Rey and Kylo do.their own thing on the side while Finn and Poe are on a mission, then later the two guys have to.come to Reys rescue?
