Oh - also - so this is the first SW movie without a limb being severed or an injury along those lines, right?

And did anyone catch any 1138s?

But if we're keeping with the pattern, then I'm guess Max von Sydow is the Ben Kenobi watching Rey, and Luke is the unknowing father.

I don't think so.  His settlement seemed pretty far away from where Rey was. Hopefully we can find out more next May...but who knows if they'll recap anything about Jakku except why Rey's family hid her there.
This is the way.


I have spoken.

No limbs being cut off but two pretty significant impalements!

There was some debate in my theater - some thought Rey lopped off Kylo's hand, some thought it was just his face that got whacked... I honestly couldn't tell for sure.  Was going to watch that more carefully on the second viewing.

I thought for sure that Rey would take Ren's hand in the duel.  Set him further on the path to becoming Vader.

Looked like Kylo got sliced up his shoulder and grazed on the face - now he'll have a scar just like Grandpa did.

Daniel Craig was the Stormtrooper guard that Rey "mind tricked".

What character did Simon Pegg play?  I've been avoiding spoiler news for so long that I'm sure there are all sorts of interesting nuggets I'm not aware of.

I thought it was pretty much confirmed that Rey is Luke's kid when she popped on his flight helmet. Now we get to find out why Luke is such a ****** dad, but it's JJ so perhaps they throw us a curveball.

I'm almost more interested in learning how Luke's saber made it from the bottom of Cloud City to Maz Kanada's castle.

Yeah it looked to me like he lost a hand but then they did the closeup where you saw the scar and to me it looked like she might have just cut off his hood. Guess we'll find out in 18 months.

Snoke was awful, maybe it was the CGI or the fact that he was literally a 50 foot hologram, but I would peg him as one of the worst villains in Star Wars.

In fairness, Palpatine was pretty lame in 4/5 too.  Snoke was pretty much Palps in ESB = Large/oversized, creepy hologram bossing around the bad guy; badgering bad guy about Skywalker.  Hoping Episode 8 and 9 fills in a little more to explain how/why he's a new Sith leader.  Maybe a lost Palps apprentice or something...

I dunno, Episodes 5 made it out immediately that Palps was THE bad guy, considering Vader obviously feared/respected him, and then the talk in 4 of him disbanding the senate. Snoke just felt like the lazy guy who latched on to Hux and Ren's group project. Hoping something else is done with him in the future.

I think it's interesting that we have FIVE villains lined up for Episode 8... Snoke, Ren, Hux, Phasma (Kathleen Kenedy said she's returning) and possibly Benicio del Toro.

That wasn't Luke's helmet.



Interesting though that the aurebesh translation on the side is "RAEH". Does RAEH=Rey? If so, is that the name she took to stay hidden?

Sydows character is named Lor San Tekka according to books released today

It also looks like there was supposed to be much more Republic and Senate than was shown

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but am I right to assume Coruscant was one of the Republic planets destroyed?

I think the MVS/Kanan theory is brilliant!

No - the back story is that apparently they moved the senate from Coruscant to Chandrilla, and then from Chandrilla to Hosnian Prime - the Hosnian system is the one that got fried, which Poe mentions. Coruscant is safe.

Could be, or it could be that it's just a little Easter egg gag for people to discover (which they did, apparently!).
