    Completely agree although that may have more to do with the era I grew up in. All those old anthology books were great, from the short story collections like Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina to all the old Han Solo and Lando books.

    I have to say, I'm not sure I'm really a fan of that name. I like the name for Lupita's character, but this one seems...odd. Especially if he turns out to be a Sith. Although I suppose he'd likely have a different Sith name if that were the case....still holding out for Plagueis...[face_whistling] Still haven't heard anything yet that could straight up debunk that...

    I still think it's a funny name for such a position though...It's kind of like, OOOooohhh, watch out for...Keith! Scary and intimidating-really inspires.

    When I first heard it, I admit Classic BSG came to mind.:D But I'm sure I'll get used to it by December.

    Yes, I got this issue first thing, and love the article and pics. Looks awesome; I'm really excited for December.

    Too many talented people working on this movie and too many fantastic actors for it to be a dud. As far as the script/story and such, that's what can take it from good to great; I'm optimistic there too.

    I can honestly say that all things considered, my anticipation has never been this high for any single movie.

    Lee_ are you too young to have been captured by the hype that was TPM?

    Honestly. I felt similar. All the material released, books, pictures. It looked like it could be great.

    Then TPM novel came out. I read it and doubts started creeping in. Anakin was not a teenager but a kid. The force was not a mysterious power but the result of some parasite microorganism. Luke's mother was a lot older than his dad...
    The villain that was so hyped actually did not have a lot to do...


    Then I got to see the actual movie. Even with all my love for Star Wars, it was a difficult movie to enjoy. Sure there are good parts to it, and the more I've watched it, it kind of grows in you.

    This movie so far is showing a lot of promise.

    I feel a similar amount of hope as I had before TPM. But now it's tempered by expectations.

    Will the stories resemble AOTC animated series, or Rebels style of narrative?, the OT?, the PT? or will we be introduced to a new GFFA that is both familiar and new?

    I went to see ANH (just "Star Wars" then) in the first week it was released, so I'm obviously not nearly that young. I don't really see much of a comparison between the two, or much of a chance they will be similar. This situation is just different. Yeah, it may not be as good as I had hoped, but there are a lot of objective reasons to think it will be good.

    I think it's safe to say I'm going to have a lot of these photos framed when I redo my office next month. They're amazing.

    And I love, love those aliens. I hope they do something fun with that dog-looking creature in the middle photo.
