I hope the film does not end with the force theme before the end credits.


the last three movies has ended this way - so it's getting a little too much

Apparently only some paperwork and a list of cues has to be submitted by November 15th; The FYC can arrive later. So that's good then. Research source: http://www.jwfan.com/forums/index.php?/topic/28741-john-williams-officially-confirmed-for-star-wars-episode-ix/&do=findComment&comment=1605673

Totally agree. The last one ended with two Force themes in a row before the credits.

  • The previous 'dead Jedi' ghosts have only come back as spiritual guides, right?
    So The Emperor should only be able to do likewise?


    It's my understanding that Light Side spirits become one with the Force while Dark Side spirits roam the galaxy in some perpetual state of purgatory. Looks like my Snoke theory doesn't suck after all.

  • I really struggled with seeing Maul at the end of the otherwise great SOLO.
    As a SW fan who has pretty much enjoyed the new films*, apart from ROGUE ONE, I worry Abrams, in trying to pull the/some fans back, might deliver some kind of 'magic blood' buffoonery I'll struggle to sanction.
    I have a bad feeling about this.


    Abrams is a great opener... and a horrendous closer. I have a worse feeling about this.

  • Fan made:


    So much for the complete sentence trilogy. I still would've named it...

    VII: The Force Awakens
    VIII: The Last Jedi
    IX: And She Is Pissed!

    According to this new article, Williams has already written 25 minutes of music


    Williams beams when he talks about watching an early cut of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which will bring the nine-film space saga to an end this Christmas. He likes what he has seen “very much” and has so far written about 25 minutes of score in about a month.

    That is great! Glad he's getting a leisurely scoring schedule, with lots of time for composing.

    Jeez. That shows how little I care about the new movies....I hadn't noticed that until it was mentioned here.

    I think I've only seen the new movies once.....and barely listened to the soundtracks.

    I used to love Star Wars.....well...at least the original trilogy. Then I realised ROTJ was pretty forgettable. But i was a kid back then. Now I'm a virgin adult living in my parent's basement......

    The Skywalker saga ended with Episode 6.The Disney movies are just expensive fan fiction.

    Don't know who's convinced but it doesn't make it untrue.

    Eh, you can say anything made from a pre-existing universe by people other than the original creators is expensive fan fiction. Star Trek, Star Wars, Terminator, Alien... but as long as it's being done by the people who own the property, it's not even close to true.

    You just don't like what they're making, which is your privilege. I happen to enjoy the entire Star Wars cinema universe, even the lesser films. It just gets so cranky around here when Star Wars and James Bond come up these days....

    I've got to admit Solie, when you're right, you're right. To me, if it doesn't have Lucas's input, it isn't really "real" Star Wars. You can bitch all you want about "it was Lucas who did this that I didn't like" or "Lucas who did that that I didn't like", but the fact is, it was still the actual creator doing it, and it was still the actual Star Wars universe...

    While I agree that Episodes 7 and 8 don't feel that much like a natural extension of the saga, they are still done by Lucasfilm, if not George himself. If he wasn't beat to hell by fans, maybe he would have gotten around to doing these himself. And yeah, there'd be tons of bitching about them as well. There's no winning really. We're all free to like or dislike what's been made, but they're all official and they all count.

    However, if we subscribe to the "if the creator isn't involved, it's not really part of the series he created" then a lot of good movies and TV series out there "wouldn't count." Such as Star Trek from mid-season 3 on and any movie after The Motion Picture. Any episode of The Next Gen after Roddenberry died and all of their films. All episodes of Mission Impossible after Bruce Geller died. All episodes of The Wild Wild West after Michael Garrison passed away (and the handful of episodes during the period he was fired from the series), and so on. It's perfectly reasonable for other people to take the characters after the creator steps aside.

    Scott is right about this. Star Trek was at it's best when Roddenberry was stripped out of it in 1982 onward in the movies, and when he was stripped out of the TV productions mid run TNG Star Trek excelled. Lucas likewise, his high points on his Star Wars property were 1977 -1980 with the first two, then a really long span of years to the next good one, Revenge of the Sith in 2005. The Disney Star Wars are not for everyone, Solo plainly stinks, but I would say JJ served them well, with new fangle wrapped nostalgia, and this new one will be solid, if not inventive. And arguably Mission Impossible became more successful than ever in the new movie incarnations.

    Lucas’s was best when he relied on Others...John Williams, And Editors, And Writers, And Irving Kushner.

    Lucas was bad, when he thought he could do it all by himself, Directing, Writing, And Producing...and went back to Destroy Star Wars, by filling in creatures and BS that was 100% not needed or wanted.

    What Lucas needed for the Pre Mess was a Strong Producer to sayto Lucas...No! Do not Write your own story and screenplay! No..Lucas..Do not Direct.

    Again, you're resorting to "...but I didn't like when Lucas did____"

    Doesn't change that everything since is pseudo-Star Wars. frown

    When I'm right, I'm right? I can live with that! big grin

    The new films are fan-fics. And I don't call them that because I don't like them or Lucas wasn't involved. Disney and JJ are the Kings of fan-fics. Force Awakens was a blatant remake of A New Hope. Last Jedi is a remake in parts of Empire. Those two films plus Solo suffer from way to much "fan service". And lets not forget JJ's other fan-fic of The Wrath of Khan called Star Trek: Into Darkness. Which he went out of his way to deny BTW.

    So... Fan service makes any movie fan fiction? That's a new one. I thought it was indicative of the current unfortunate trend of sequels having "nods" to previous entries, but that apparently makes it fan fiction... Stop the presses.
