    Damn, that island is paradise compared to where Luke had to train on Dagobah. Hopefully it doesn't make Rey soft

    I know episode VII has been out 2 months @Dragonlordxxxxx but you put a big spoiler in that returning cast paragraph.

    Also, that teaser sucked.

    Who knows....but as long as they don't explain why Rey has such amazing force ability, I'll be happy.

    Cool, but I'm expecting a rehash of training scenes and homage to Ben Kenobi between Rey and Luke... more smile inducing moments to remind us of the original trilogy. Still looking forward to but im hoping her training is more if a montage of actions as opposed to Rey practicing with the blue lightsaber and blocking the first shot againt that metal ball that zapped Luke the first time. I beg for original ideas and content, please.

    STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII Adds Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran


    [​IMG]

    Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran have joined the cast of Star Wars: Episode VIII, which started filming in London on Monday.

    Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis are all returning for the follow up to The Force Awakens.

    Rian Johnson wrote and will direct the film. Star Wars: Episode VIII is slated for release Dec. 15, 2017.

    Del Toro was most recently seen in Sicario, Inherent Vice and Guardians of the Galaxy. Dern’s credits include 99 Homes and Wild. Tran is a relative newcomer (as was Ridley when she was first hired to star in the franchise). Her credits include the Netflix's indie XOXO with Sarah Hyland and the College Humor series.

    I know it's a bit early to talk about box office numbers, but will this movie pull bigger numbers than TFA? Or about the same, or even smaller? In the other trilogies, the box office gross always seemed to go down.

    In the previous threads, you had some issues with certain scenes.

    1. You wondered how come newbie Rey defeated Kylo Ren so easily?

    2. You didn't like that sanitation worker Finn was holding his own against Kylo Ren.

    3. You especially didn't like how come Rey is so good at everything.

    Hopefully somebody can answer these burning and not-yet-discussed questions for you.

    I dunno. I'm part of the crowd that would like to see her un-Mary-Sued a little bit. Better pilot than Han, better with the force than Ren, etc...

    I think the next one will do even better. glad they're adding Del toro too, he's legit. i think with TFA a lot of people were nervous it would suck, but it was so good I'm sure it's built fan confidence for sequels. Disney knows what they're doing here.

    I never know what to expect out of the Box Office now. But I do know I'm ecstatic for Episode 8 with Rian Johnson directing. I loved Looper. I wish we could get some sort of expansion or sequel into that universe. And he directed the Breaking Bad episode, Ozymandias, one of the greatest episodes ever. I'm sure he has some kick ass story cooked up for Episode 8.

    As of now, I'm going to say Episode VIII will not suprass The Force Awakens at the box office.

    Sounds reasonable.

    Did anyone expect TFA to do numbers THIS huge? I wouldn't bet on it happening again unless it's amazing and gets insane word of mouth.
