It wasn't a "literal" rehash. But I know what you mean. Although, they do seem to have the trailing scenes in store for us.

sorry I hate to do this, but how was it not a rehash?

 

- we're introduced to robots before humans

- we've got Stormtroopers assaulting rebels

- we've got an orphan kid who lives in the desert and tinkers with junk

- we've got a hero in a Stormtrooper outfit rescuing another hero from an Imperial interrogation

- we've got the veteran pilot showing the ropes to the new kid

- we're hiding underneath the floorboards of the Millennium Falcon

- we play alien Chess aboard the Millennium Falcon

- we fight a giant / creepy monster in a dirty ship

- we've got an alien band in an exotic alien bar

- we find a seemingly indestructible Death Star populated by thousands of enemies

- we plan another simple trench run

- somebody important dies again

- Death Star blows up thanks to tiny little weakness exploited by handful of heroes

- one of the heroes seems to be gravely wounded until further notice

 

look, I really enjoyed Force Awakens but let's not pretend it wasn't a lazy film.

oh here's the video I was looking for.

 

 

there's such thing as 'paying homage' and then there's such thing as copying a movie...

I Agree with what you're saying, I'm just being a cheeky c*nt about your use of the word literal.

Technically, "literally" now also means "figuratively."

Savages.

I'v finally watched Rogue One. It was great y'all; seriously. No idea what the backlash is all about when everyone was complaining that TFA is a New Hope rip off and then when this does something mildly different it gets bashed.

I was enjoying have a Christmas Eve tradition going to watch the new Star Wars movies these past few years :( I read somewhere it's because of Avatar?

 

The Walt Disney Company and Lucasfilm announced today two major upcoming release dates.
 
Star Wars: Episode IX is now set for release on May 24, 2019. Directed by Colin Trevorrow, the film will close out the third Star Wars trilogy.
 
In addition, the fifth chapter of the Indiana Jones series is now confirmed for a July 10, 2020 release. Both Steven Spielberg, director of every Indiana Jones film, and star Harrison Ford will return.

Harrison Ford will stop it from happening, he will either have a fatal accident in something he is driving/piloting or die of natural causes by then...

I'd prefer the movie not to come out without the death of Indiana.  That would be ideal.

Harrison Ford will die quietly at the age of 120 years old. He's indestructible.

Why does Indiana Jones have to die? I want to see a 90 year old Indy in the 90s hitting on college girls, and then being creeped out, and him saying, "I threw a Nazi outta a zeppelin!"

I worded that oddly, I meant I want this 5th movie to be stopped by less than Harrison Ford dying. I.e., no Indy 5 and also keep Harrison alive.

as long as this isn't a literal rehash of Empire Strikes Back like the way Force Awakens was a literal rehash of A New Hope, I'll be happy with it.


It does seem like they're rehashing the Resistance side of the plot with the big AT-ATs, First Order attacking the Resistance base. Hopefully the Luke-Rey-Kylo plot will be something fresh.

one thing i dont like they said with the new picture reveal is that, the light saber is no longer Anakins, its official Reys'. So i guess she doesnt build her own, like a lot of the concept art showed?
