    Oh come on, new rules are fun. For example, "Rey is Palpatine's reincarnation sent to fix what he broke" would be a fun story. :p

    Me while reading: "What does that mean?!"

    I too have a bad feeling about it:
    "While it’s unlikely the film will actually use the fan-favorite term “Grey Jedi,” it seems like those philosophies could be among the themes Johnson will explore in the follow up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

    *flails* (and not in a good way)

    "New rules" as in "Ortalans have legs now" or "New rules" as in "LOTF/FOTJ redemption-is-for-those-who-deserve-it Luke"? I'm cool if one is superficial but if they mess with the morals of the OT like LOTF did... well...

    Surely it has to do with the line "It's so much bigger" in the trailer.

    Come here and say that to my face, website. :mad:

    (Although honestly I've always kind of thought of Comicbook.com as a worthless nest of clickbait, so I'm not gonna sweat it).

    So, according to the Star Wars Show we should be getting a Behind The Scenes reel at D23.

    Disney's own comic con, basically sorta, and it's this weekend. And SDCC is next weekend. And, this is just total speculation but I hope it happens, Conan O'Brien is doing shows from SDCC and there's a "surprise film guest cast" show to be announced. Please, oh please, let it be TLJ.

    Didn't they say that Star Wars wouldn't have an official presence at SDCC this year?

    New leaked pic of a Praetorian Red Guard

    Removed. Note, LEGO has actually asked us not to post any leaked images for their Episode VIII sets, especially pics with the confidential watermark on them.

    Well ordinary leaks that are not lego is still okay tho, right ? :p Because images from a flipper machine showing us the preatorian red guards, the porgs, kylo and more just leaked.

    I really wish the praetorian guards had some more detailing on their armor, or at least some black to break up the red, without it they look kind of silly IMO, the scalloped look doesn't work for me

    nice to see porgs though

    Luke and Rey look kick-butt. And I'm really digging Kylo Ren's kneeling-with-saber-down pose. They are really playing up his medieval knight hero look–perhaps hinting at his inner conflict? Or just making an interesting contrast: the villain who looks like a hero.

    I'm just hoping his kneeling down is his begging Luke and Leia for forgiveness.

    I just noticed–check out the little birds beside Artoo! They're not convors, but looks like those rumors about the mystical birds may be true.

    Honestly, I really like the praetorian guards. While technically it's kinda unnecessary for Snoke to go so far as to have his own set of elite guards in red, I think they're really distinctive-looking, not just an Imperial Guard rehash - the segmented armor being part of that. And I love that they all seem to have their own individual design elements.

    And got really pissed off that he couldn't find it. Went nuts, stomped it in the process, went more nuts over that so had to slash up several computer consoles.

    Kylo, honey. Contacts are more trouble than they're worth. Just get LASIK done and forget about lenses for good.

    I like them. They remind me a bit of the Emperor's Sentinels in Dark Empire. Also, i really like the one guy's space kukris.

    I love the design of the Praetorians. Maybe my favorite new favorite design - character, ship, alien, otherwise - from all of the Disney movies so far.
