I can't help but think that the way Kylo Ren's lightsaber and Rey's staff are shown so deliberately parallel that there is some measure of relation between the two of them.

ESPN Carribean of all things has confirmed that the official poster for THE FORCE AWAKENS will be unveiled tomorrow, October 18th.  And the trailer will debut on TV during ESPN's Monday Night Football broadcast.

***EDIT - The original tweet was deleted.  Check out this screencap at Star Wars Underworld

Details are starting to emerge about Thor - Ragnarok.  Among them?  There's a director.  And the Hulk is going to play into the story, too.

The director will be Taika Waititi, a New Zealander who you may have seen in Green Lantern as Hal Jordan's nerdy friend.  The movie is set to hit theaters on Nov. 3, 2017.  And word has it that Mark Ruffalo will be reprising his role as Bruce Banner / The Hulk for this film.  Tom Hiddleston is also confirmed to be returning as Loki.  And this movie will be linked to the visions that Thor had in the cave during Avengers - Age of Ultron.

On top of the nod to Jaws, I can't believe that I didn't make the connection with the worms to Dune.  Although that movie has always been a bit more fringe.  As for the relevance of the worms?  I think this week's episode was foreshadowing about how the worms might play into things next week.

As for Kanan, his animosity for the Clones and Rex in particular?  I think that's something that has to develop over time.  The trailer for the new season has shown Rex on board the Ghost, so you've got to think that he's going to stick around for a while.

I found that on Amazon just now:

Marvel Avengers Age of Ultron Movie, Exclusive Hawkeye and Falcon Action Figures, 3.75 Inches

With the exception of Iron Man and the Black Widow repaint, everything in these 2-packs have been reissues.  I was hoping that we might at least get a Hulk that's somewhat in scale with the 3.75" figures, but I'm not holding out hope.

I think that episodes like The Siege of Lothal are going to be some of the really memorable moments of any TV season.  That being said, you need episodes like The Lost Commanders to be the plate setters so that when those combat episodes do happen, they've got some meaning.  You need to establish a decent story so that it's not just mindless action.  And that's the mistake that a lot of current action films make:  they jam way too many gags into the film.  They do that because people SAY that they want action, but when it's just that the story winds up falling somewhat flat.  But when you get episodes where the story gets a chance to breathe and develop?  The end result is that the viewer is much more invested in the characters and their story arcs.

More evidence is mounting about the possibility of the full trailer for THE FORCE AWAKENS being released soon.  THIS SCREENCRUSH POST indicates that the trailer may very well be released on Monday, October 19th.  And it may likely air on ESPN's Monday Night Football.  Rumors also have it that the ESPN MNF game will have a Star Wars theme throughout.  No word from ESPN at this time.  Making Star Wars posted a similar article whose sourcing remains unclear, and seemed to support the Screen Crush report.

Additionally, the rumors have it that the trailer will be attached to the new James Bond film, Spectre, debuting in theaters on November 6th.  This has yet to be officially confirmed, so keep checking back for more news.

The "fishing" scene was a tremendous homage to Jaws, right down to the music.  You have to love how Filoni and company can do things like that while still serving up an interesting story.

Glad to see the Clones return.  They were great characters, and seeing them some 15 years on from the PT era was nice.  Seeing the effects of their advanced aging and war-weariness made them that much more well developed.  I was a little surprised by what Wolffe did, and more than a little disappointed.  But I had to remind myself that these guys were programmed to be soldiers who follow orders.  Still, it was odd to see that the Empire was somewhat dismissive of the Clones and their report.  But the Viper probe droid they sent?  That was fantastic!

Kanan's reaction to the Clones was very well done.  I'm glad to see him get that out to Ezra and explain the events of Order 66 in a way that conveyed the shock and horror of seeing his Master gunned down by the Clones after they had fought alongside them for years.

I think it was a good way to start the season.  And it looks like they're going to be doing some multi-episode story arcs with the way this episode ended.  I think that was one of the strengths of CLONE WARS and I'd like to see these multi-episode story arcs continue.  Standalone episodes really don't do it for me.

Lash was pretty badass.  But I'm wondering where the whole Inhuman storyline is going.  Word has it that there are some divisions at Marvel Studios over how to handle the Inhumans in both films and television.  Which means that the movie appears to be on hold.

I had to redeem myself after getting eliminated in the first week of the survival pool. 

Glad to see these in stores today, and in decent numbers.  I've been a little concerned about Hasbro offering 6" Black Series exclusives.  Especially since the TRU nearest me is a hotbed for collector stores to stock up their own inventory.  But I was able to get one with relative ease today.

I picked up the TRU exclusive 6" Snowtrooper Officer.  Gotta love those TRU Rewards, because I got it for $16!
