    Ah, so I am. My bad. Carry on, then.

    Here's the interview with Driver, not Issac, where he says he's not going to be filming until November-December. Makes me wonder why his shooting schedule is so far apart from the hitherto main shoot. http://insidemovies.ew.com/2014/08/...ver-on-the-intimacy-of-star-wars-episode-vii/

    He's probably the bad guy. All of his scenes are alone looking pensively at a green-screen space window and doing that evil finger-steepling gesture.

    Yeah, they don't need him to film the arm stroking, they can just use the robotic prop for that.

    If they go with the 'Empire reformed back into Republic' it'd be worst thing they could do. I can't see any self-respecting ex-Rebel ending up using equipment like Star Destroyers and Stormtrooper Armor. Yes they did it in the EU, but to a point, the captured ISDs and Executors were not the mainstay of the New Republic. The worst they could do would be going with the Lucas poetry again. Seriously, just keep the government the Rebels formed and the Empire two separate entities.

    Using whatever they can get their hands on is kind of the trademark of rebels.

    They aren't going to not use a kickass ship just because it was used against them first.

    Sure, but if they've been in charge, or have had some kind of control for the last 30 years, they wouldn't be using Imperial equipment. Partially, sure, but not as the main thing. All this info leads me to think that they're going to take the Empire stuff, rename it Reformed Republic or something and call it a day. It's a bad idea.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. General Solo leading a fleet from the bridge of an SSD? Yes, please. Old Man Solo trying to relive his glory days by "piloting" an SSD that somehow is controllable from a single console all of a sudden? No thanks.

    But TBH I think both are unlikely.

    I had a thought: What if Von Sydow is playing Force-ghost Anakin?

    Because, think about it: No Anakin means no Vader, and from a marketing perspective, that's probably something Disney would lament. His voice is similar enough to Sebastian Shaw, and those bags under his eyes... I mean, I could imagine him having enough intensity to convince you that he was once Darth Vader.

    No. They made it sound like he was a pretty major character, which a Force-ghost is not.

    And you know that they would get Hayden. :p

    I would be ok with that. I would prefer Shaw over Hayden, but sadly that can't happen.

    I guarantee you all Shaw was intended from the onset to be a placeholder Anakin Force ghost.

    (A) I'd say the former Darth Vader is "a pretty major character."

    (B) I know nothing of the sort... GOOD DAY!

    (C) ...I BELIEVE I SAID GOOD DAY!

    I endorse Von Sydow as Anakin although an old man force ghost is counter-intuitive

    I mean major character as in major screentime. Unless you want to watch Anakin run around haunting people for a big chunk of the movie.

    If there's any Force-ghost shenanigans, it should be with Yoda. Did Force-ghost Yoda ever talk to Luke in the EU? I remember Luke talks to Obi-Wan in Truce at Bakura (and Anakin talks to gets yelled at by Leia in the same book) but I can't think of any Yoda appearances.

    I don't want a single Force ghost in VII. The smartest thing Zahn did was have Obi-Wan peace out.

    And in VII and IX? Luke or Leia specifically?

    Agreed, however Zahn did bring back Obi-wan as a force ghost on speed dial for his later books

    Force Ghosts would be interesting for a twist if you don't see or hear them. Luke and/or Our New Protagonist is chattering to themselves and people think they're a crazy person but Luke just casually shrugs "Talking to my dead dad, no biggie".
