Although its Rey's story it doesn't mean John and Kylo aren't important - lets face it the OT was about the Skywalkers but Han Solo was every bit as important as the others.

@ISeeAnIsland

Hilarious. It's clear that Pablo never thought JJ would come back and is now trying to cover his a**.

Re: Han Solo won't be in 9...

So... is anyone else excited this ups the probability of kid!Ben flashbacks? Because it's either that or Force ghost!Han in TLJ, and last I checked Han does not know how to do that.

Okay. He totally could have corrected this person. Han in TLJ confirmed.

@MeadowofAshes

Didn't Rian say that Han has a presence in 8? I figured it would be metaphorical, like his death looming over everyone, but he could appear in a flashback? I didn't think Ford was filming anything for 8, though.

@Cowgirlsamurai Ford filming might have been kept top secret, in studio.


[size=38]Rian did say he'd be a presence, but I thought it was more metaphorical as well. This is exciting! Well... maybe not for Pablo Laughing, but I doubt Han will overshadow anyone in a flashback.

Agreed with @MeadowofAshes I think that Pablo meant it more as a major presence/role rather than not in the movie at all (flashback, for example). Cause the context was about his getting screen time at the expense of new leads so I read his comment that he won't be in IX in that capacity.

Good Lord, Pabs. Laughing

Well, that's a change, I suppose... perhaps he's been told to tone down his dislike of the son, so he's transferring it to the father instead. Razz

I remember though Pablo complaining about Han being a drug dealer.

I agree. That says it better, imo.

I thought that Han was one of the best things in TFA, but I do think that story-wise the film hits a flat patch after he and Chewie show up.
@Saracene

I absolutely loved Han in TFA and I think he added so much to the dynamic once he showed up. I do think the scene on the Eravana (when the gangs show up and the rathars) was a low-point in the movie (the rathar scene was my bathroom break on subsequent viewings, lol), but it picks up after that.
@Kessel Yeah, I agree about the low point.

Also I hope people understand that because I think that Han overrode Rey and Finn (detracting from their agency) that doesn't mean I didn't like Han in the movie. I just wish they'd tried to do it a bit differently.

I also wish the Han/Leia interaction had been more... something. I don't know what, but they fell a bit flat.

The scene that was amazing was the Han and Kylo confrontation. The way Han calls Ben out and the pain in his voice. Their performances convinced me they were father and son. I could feel it--all this history and baggage, pain and resentment, between them. And that long ago it was only love.

Live camera of JJ's first day back at Lucasfilm for IX pre-production



Star Wars Twitter, like Twitter on so many other topics, is full of hot takes, snark, pro-JJ, anti-JJ (some people really seem to take how a movie or TV show is handled as a personal insult), magical thinking that JJ will "make things right" because of whatever character developments/plot points somebody disagrees with, "I'm withholding judgement on Rian Johnson because I don't know yet if he's going to f**k things up," "he's better than Trevorrow," "I have opinions about Star Trek and Lost," "still mad about that guy who effed up Harry Potter," knee jerk jokes and memes, and the most sensible take, that LF effed up by hiring Trevorrow in the first place instead of going after a director like Jenkins or DuVernay to round out a trilogy where the central character is a woman. The main take away is that there are a million different opinions and yet nearly everybody is unhappy and feels like they're in the minority. Is this what being a sports fan is like? Because it was exhausting just reading all of that.

Okay, I know they want to protect the plot twist, but dang. Novelization not released until March???

@MeadowofAshes - hahaha! They do sell the red Swingline thanks to Milton, I even ordered one once for a work colleague who kept bitching about the staplers our department had on hand. He had no idea why the CFO and I laughed our a**es off about that order.

So not until March, that's interesting. Because I didn't see TFA until late February-early March 2016 after the hype/chatter died down and tried listening to the audiobooks to help figure out what I thought I knew. Which turned out to mostly be bad ADF prose. But between the delay, no fan event next year, and the cryptic MH quotes, it's easy to think that something crazy is going to happen and they're hedging bets on fan reaction. Like diehards might start screaming for RJ's head or escalate the "help us JJ, you're our only hope!" based on whatever happens in the story. Mystery box complaints aside, it is really nice that we can have a *general* idea of what's going to happen and that it'll be great, but still not like most movies where if you've seen the trailer, you already know the story.

@motherofpearl1

Me too, but it was still useless from my point of view because the Story Group hadn't even looked at it. Basically all TFA novelisations and adaptations were just their authors' interpretations of the film. I mean, I don't read novelisations of my other favourite films either; why would I need some random novelist's interpretation of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, for example? I've already got the film. That's all the story I need.

That said, perhaps the TLJ ones will have a bit of extra value? Fry is more chummy with the Story Group so perhaps there was some actual collaboration this time around. I would hope so.

Oh, lyrics anyone?

"You can shine your shoes and wear a suit
You can comb your hair and look quite cute
You can hide your face behind a smile
One thing you can't hide
Is when you're crippled inside
You can wear a mask and paint your face
You can call yourself the human race
You can wear a collar and a tie
One thing you can't hide
Is when you're crippled inside
Well now you know that your
Cat has nine lives
Nine lives to itself
But you only got one
And a dog's life ain't fun
Momma take a look outside
You can go to church and sing a hymn
You can judge me by the color of my skin
You can live a lie until you die
One thing you can't hide
Is when you're crippled inside
Well now you know that your
Cat has nine lives
Nine lives to itself
But you only got one
And a dog's life ain't fun
Momma take a look outside
You can go to church and sing a hymn
Judge me by the color of my skin
You can live a lie until you die
One thing you can't hide
Is when you're crippled inside
One thing you can't hide
Is when you're crippled inside
One thing you can't hide
Is when you're crippled inside"

I'll give it the first stab.  Rey is going to see all his secrets, pain, and tragedy laid bare in front of her.

OMG, this is so delicious I could eat it up...
