    Sure, I think we are simply justifying the existence of this thread. No worries.

    I am going to trust that, if we have a Jedi Tea Party, that it won't be ruined.

    And I don't care if some fans don't like HC. He is Anakin, so they can just buckle up.

    May may my friend on that. I agree on what you say.

    Who's all going to the tea party?:p

    Not sure, but it would be hilarious to have Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Anakin sitting with Luke going "Ugh, kids these days." And teasing Anakin about his Biggest Fan.

    That will never happen but it's funny to think about.

    Hopefully more prequel references. I want to see any "old" planets- anything we've seen before in the OT or PT. Also want previously seen alien species as background.

    I understand with previous films, each new movie (in order of 4,5,6,1,2,3) introduced new characters, species, planets, vehicles, etc each time. But they also had stuff from before and for me, TFA was a little lacking on the familiar planets and alien species. They were so busy doing fanservice with OT main characters it was like they forgot to throw a rodian in the background somewhere. Or something, anything.

    I am quoting Sepra's post because, as a SW saga fan, I sometimes feel this way no matter where I post. More on that in a moment.

    The reason I joined this forum in the first place was because I love SW. Sounds familiar, right?

    The second reason is that I wanted to share my admiration of the PT with other likeminded fans, since a lot of my RL friends are lukewarm, at best, about the PT.

    Most of my time on the boards has been spent with PT fans discussing, debating and analyzing SW films etc and more recently, February to be precise, hanging out in PT social thread with all the rad people there.

    One thing I wanted to mention, and I apologize Ezon and everyone for being off topic, but I have noticed a disturbing trend of a few PT fans ripping TFA or being negative about the ST with impunity, and yet maintaining an indignant, even hostile response if any poster critiques the PT whatsoever, however insignificantly.

    To requote Sepra, "I still feel like I can't say anything even slightly neutral without being jumped on and my ethics questioned."
    It's a bad feeling to have, I know.

    My post is not aimed at any particular individual, I quoted Sepra because she expressed how I sometimes feel as a SW saga fan.
    I just wanted to remind everyone to make sure to not be like the PT detractors/haters, even in spite of how much bs we've ALL had to endure for being vocal PT fans. We're better than that, truly. At the minimum, let us watch the entire ST before we judge it too harshly.

    Also, there are some sensitive nerds like me who LOVE all of the SW films, so we get bummed out by all of these trilogy wars. Give peace a chance.
    Thank you for your time.
    MTFBWY.

    @Dagobahsystem I wish I could like your post a thousand times over, no a million times. Well said. =D=

    My thoughts on that mild disappointment some feel about the TFA: I would be mildly disappointed with AOTC if it was just by itself, or just with TPM. But AOTC is my second-favorite SW film because I watch it in conjunction with ROTS and it makes so much sense. It makes ROTS more beautiful to me, and then it becomes more beautiful in and of itself. So it very well could be that if you were on the edge of liking TFA or feeling disappointed with it, that the next film could really make it part of a great puzzle and change the way you feel.

    As for the "haters' cave" type comments. Well, there's a reason I'm not in the haters' cave! :) I also don't go into the "rewriting the prequel" threads for the same reason.

    No. What you said needed to be said at this moment, it was important.

    But do it again, and I'm banning you:p

    To continue what @Dagobahsystem said(Yep, I'm derailing my own thread AND double posting. I used to be a mod you know...)

    I think it it also fine to have arguments over the sagas. Different people have different opinions, ideals and so fourth. It's perfectly fine for "civil" arguments over the dislikes of certain parts of the saga.

    One major thing I was disappointed about in VII.

    I really hope they embrace the lore of all the Star Wars films in VIII. I feel like it has the potential to really be something special, maybe even better than the best Star Wars movies. I'd also like to see Force ghosts---Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Yoda. All of them! As long as it doesn't seem forced.

    I hope they incorporate more of the lore (species, droids, places etc) into the background so it can feel more rooted in the universe. At the same time tone down the overt and heavy-handed iconography of tie fighters and x-wings. Things in the foreground should be new and things in the background should be familiar

    I am being nicer to The Force Awakens than I would be because the kids today will love TFA and i don't want to crap on their childhood the way the OT Purists did to mine.

    Yes, I would love for them to visit old planets as well. I kinda miss vibrant metropolis vibe from Coruscant. We only see a glimpse of Hosnian Prime in TFA.
    Seriously though, next director should not shy away from using CGI (and miniatures) to bring new and exciting planets, just like PT.

    I'm excited for VIII as I thought VII was a good film if not perfect. A few things I hope for the next episode are:

    1. A more original story

    2. More world building.

    Yeah, is anyone else getting an old Naboo or Naboo 2.0 vibe from that or what!
