    I don't know about Glove of Darth Vader, but definitely Kylo Ren's name came from Kybo Ren in the Droids series--I don't care how much JJ and Kasdan try to claim they don't pay attention to any cartoons or EU.

    I thought you were critical of the overall quality of TFA? I don't understand why you're equating it to GODV in that case.

    It’s true, TFA isn’t even entertainingly stupid.

    Everyone else with kids is all starry-eyed "oh my kids just luv Forces of Destiny!" and Dawud is like "I gave my kid GODV."

    It looks kinda like a videogame backdrop to the old 2D games like Mortal Kombat.

    *googles "Mortal Kombat Throne Room*

    Wait. Like literally, just google image search that and see what you get. Good grief.

    No like, literally, the throne is the exact same.



    EDIT: Also I think we talk the same because I wrote this without noticing you said "like literally" in your post too. :p

    If the whole movie isn’t all red, all the time, I’m going to feel lied to.

    I hope that the relationship between Luke and Rey is not like the one between EU Luke and Ben, his son [or the real Ben, as I call him]. I mean, I like Daisy Ridley. Tbh, she's the main reason I watch the sequel films at all, other than Hamill.

    I dont know, i think i would love a sparring session between Rey and Luke where he challenges her to make him spark his lightsaber ala Ben/Luke in Inferno.

    We shall see. I doubt that Luke will be as powerful as he was in the EU.

    I consider this all alternative history on film in comparison to the books. Just my take.

    1 month from now I will have seen Last Jedi 3 times already, yayyy!!!

    But that means I'm officially going into spoiler-lockdown mode, diving for the remote when Star Wars Last Jedi ads are on, only watching the 2 trailers (over and over and over). So, Godspeed Last Jedi Lit. Thread! I'll see you all on the other side! Stay strong and may the Force be with us!

    After shopping with my girlfriend the other day, I think she might be the first person I've heard of who has a bigger crush on BB-9E than she does on the porgs or BB-8.

    I thought Kylo was just a combination of sKYwalker and soLO.

    There is a big, armored, tracked assault vehicle in the middle of the First Order battle line:
