It sure is reasonable for Rogue One to have the Fett. It's the right time period. And we have never seen adult Bobba Fett without the helmet, so they can cast whoever the hell they want.

If that's the case, my first guess is he'd be cast in the "anti-hero" role; the bad guy we root for. Like Walter White or Tony Soprano. They do bad, even vicious things, but we are still on their side because some other a-holes are even worse. That seems like a pop culture role custom made for Bobba Fett.

The risk will be over-playing the Fett. Part of his appeal has always been his mystery. He's stoic and committed; we only have little hints as to the man behind the helmet. It is going to be hard to strike the right balance between fleshing out his character and turning him into a overly-emotional eye-roll (like Anikan Skywalker.)

This is going to be a hard movie, I think. They are inserting themselves into the canon of original trilogy with Rogue One and that is a minefield of style and tone ready to blow up in our collective faces. The desire to appeal to modern audiences with action and special effects means they are going to compromise what we are used to in that time period of this universe that has been created. In order for this movie to work, canonically, the action sequences would have to suck by today's standards. They won't do that. So hardcore fans are going to leave the theater saying, "Oh, come on!" And casual viewers will say, "Yeah okay; whatever. Go, Space Wars."

Probably. So why did you reply to this thread?

No. My girlfriend never has and by the looks of it (since she passes out faster than a Cosby guest when I put it on) never will.

Finally saw the film. What's with this image from the film:

Image

At the end of Episode VI, Darth Vader removed his mask and he looked like a humpty dumpty head to me:

Image

In the current movie, you see something like a skeleton, with teeth! Makes no sense.

And why did R2-D2 wait until the end of the movie to reveal that he had in his memory banks 99% of the map? BB-8, the focus of the entire movie, only had 1% of the map. If R2-D2 would have revealed his 99% earlier in the film, the Resistance certainly could have flown to the unmapped 1% and would have found Luke Skywalker hanging out in Ireland.

I'm a Star Trek Fan as well; glad J.J. Abrams is now doing both franchises. Waiting now for Star Wars Episode VII in 2017, and the next Star Trek on July 22, 2016 called: Star Trek Beyond.

/off topic

J.J. Abrams, with his second Star Trek "Into Darkness" being voted the worst Star Trek film in the franchise history, has given a protege, Justin Lin, the director's chair for Star Trek Beyond as Abrams was busy with Star Trek VII.

/on topic

Star Wars is now a Disney enterprise. I'm surprised the Death Star in the film was a planet, and not this:

Image

And Walt Disney, known for films of "and they lived happily ever after," would not approved, imho, a son killing his father in cold blood as when Kylo Ren killed his father Han Solo. This is a Disney "happily ever after" moment?

Yeah, some plot holes big enough to fly yet another Death Star through. I think Abrams was too beholden to the fans on this one. The lore is well know, I don't think there was any reason to rehash so much. Plus, you can't get stuff like that wrong.

ZZYZX 2 I see that the first picture you have posted is Darth Vader's helmet that must have been recovered after the Death Star blew up. I don't think it is suppose to be Anakin Skywalker's head.

I found R2D2 having most of the map data to be stupid too. I think BB-8 having all of it would have been just fine.

Wasn't R2-D2 shut down most of the movie, reviving only long enough to reveal the rest of the map?

R2D2 was like in sleep mode the whole movie because Luke was missing as far as I remember it. I don't remember anything that said or suggested that R2D2 was to go back to sleep mode after revealing the map. I expect all three robots in the next movie. R2D2 kind of came across as a total dick with the whole map business.

I guess he was waiting for Luke to come back for him. When that didn't happen, he woke up when BB-8 showed the piece of map it had in its memory.

Another no explanation point in the movie (like CP3O's red arm, why?!!) I just think they could have done something better, like have Rea fix R2 somehow instead of R2 hibernating. Overall, the movie wasted a lot of time with pointless scenes when they could have used that for better character development.

Since I have Star Wars on my mind, how'd you all feel about the light saber battles? This one reminded me more of Empire where it was little finesse mashed with just wild brute force, where the prequels were more choreographed. What do you guys and ladies prefer? I kind of like the Empire/Force wakens style.

I forget about C3PO's red arm but I think that it will be covered in the comic books or maybe a movie but the info on it is available online.

I think as far as light saber battles go I liked the prequels though the force wakens was good to. I just didn't like mark hamell's acting with him against Darth Vader and with a light saber for some reason.
