    Can’t wait to see Hamill as a Jedi in 7!

    You’ve got to hand it to Hamill – he’s really gotten himself into shape for the role. Granted he has the benefit of a personal trainer, dietitian and a bunch of money – but still. Making new Star Wars movies may just add some years onto his life.

    Luke dies. Daisy Ridley’s character seeks out the lost isle (Skellig) in the middle of nowhere. Luke’s ghost appears to her.

        Please yes. As a ghost, that means Luke will appear in VIII and IX and beyond…

          Well yes it would be great for him to become a ghost. But it shouldn’t and doesn’t need to happen this soon in the game. I’d personally much prefer Han to die in epvii

      I still say Luke should die quietly and peacefully at the end of Episode IX. Sort of disappear into the force the way that Yoda does. THEN he can be a force ghost and watch over the new generation.

      You raise an interesting point, how will each die off. To take each one out separately or together is what I’ve been wondering how they are going to execute that. But now I’m thinking hey what if one is already dead (Luke) one is dying (Liea) and Harrison goes down towards the end. Its interesting if Luke had already died and it was a story of legend of how the sith began to resurface.

        Ep I: Master/mentor dies (Qui-Gon)

        Ep IV: Master/mentor dies (Obi-Wan)

        Ep VII: Master/mentor dies? (Luke?)

        Also each one was trained by the last one …

          Technically Yoda was the one who trained Luke. Obi-Wan introduced him to the ways of the Jedi and counciled him, but Yoda trained him. Following that logic, Luke dies in EpIX

        Totally agree, it wouldn’t make sense for him to die in combat seeing as he should be way more powerful since ROTJ where he was strong enough to take Vader down. In the EU he is a god practically I hope disney understands he should not be messed with.

    Mark Hamill is looking extremely badass, he looks even better than the Old Luke we’ve all been imagining over the years.

    Oh man, this’ll be a great movie; I can feel it.

    At this point in his life, will Luke even need a lightsaber? He should be a total master of the force by now.

      Well, if he’s gonna look respectable again, he’ll need something to shave his beard with.

    Did a lot of fans also wish for the OT characters to get killed sometime during the OT, as well? Knowing that that was the case may relieve some of the irritation I have from reading about such desires on Every Single Star Wars website pertaining to the upcoming Episode 7, otherwise I keep thinking that the reason is that the OT cast is older now, and that honestly bothers the heck out of me if that were the case.

    It would ease my suffering to know that such talk is just common practice among fans all throughout the history of the saga, and not specifically for the reason I listed above. Like I said, if such was common back then too, that might make me stop worrying so much that JJ is going to necessarily read each of these comments about the OT characters’ dying, assume that they are popular consensus and base his decisions on them. ‘Tis just a concern of mine is all. Call it paranoia, or what have you, but I keep thinking that will be the case, so like I said it would help to know that this talk has always been common throughout the franchise.

      I don’t think people are saying that they want them to die; they are just guessing that it might happen. Besides, Abrams isn’t going to be influenced by message boards, you know better than that

      “JJ is going to necessarily read each of these comments about the OT characters’ dying, assume that they are popular consensus and base his decisions on them.”

      Well, first off, Abrams is only at the helm for EP. VII, not the entire ST. Secondly, professional writers NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER give into fans’ wishes, regardless on how popular their books/films might be.

      The first rule when writing something is to do what feels right to you. Simply because pleasing everyone and their dog is impossible. So there is only one person you want to make happy: yourself. If others enjoy your work, great. If they don’t, too bad. At least you were true to yourself.

      Now, here’s another thing that professional writers know: you never kill off a character just for the sake of it (popular or no). You do it when a) their demise will help you move the plot forward, or b) the character has already outlived his/her usefulness.

      So don’t worry. If any (or all) of the OT’s Big Three is to be killed off at some point during the ST, it’ll be for a good reason that serves the story, and not just to satisfy some folk who have absolutely no idea of what it takes to write/tell a good story.

        “I don’t think people are saying that they want them to die; they are just guessing that it might happen.”

        Although I hope you are right about people not wanting them to die, sadly I have my doubts as I have been on quite a few different Star Wars sites, and in each of them fans join in on talk of how a character should die in their opinions. On most websites dedicated to Star Wars entire threads are even made based on what OT character should die, and how. You may be surprised as to how many times I have read comments pertaining to Han, Chewie, Lando, etc. ‘dying in a blaze of glory’. Leia dying randomly just because, or Luke just because it would tie in perfectly with Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan. That is why to me it seems more so like fans do want it that way. Not to mention, many age related comments that relate to why most people want the characters’ out of the picture, as well. Also, for the sake of ‘realism’ (no ‘character shields’).

        “Besides, Abrams isn’t going to be influenced by message boards, you know better than that”

        Sorry, but in all honesty I do not know better than that, as in this day and age most directors – especially those of a franchise as subjected to scrutiny as Star Wars – will be influenced by fans’ remarks. ‘Tis a sad, sad truth, but nevertheless writers, directors, etc. are not bound to stick to their artistic integrity as much anymore due to public outcry. A few examples are the ending of Mass Effect 3, Jar Jar playing a lesser role in the prequels and JJ going back to practical effects after fans’ reactions to the prequels’ CGI. Fans can change the game. I would not be worried otherwise, I assure you. Anyways, thank you for your comments, as I truly do appreciate them, and hope you are right. It means a lot to see you get up-voted as well, as that says people do think the way you are saying, and in turn tells me that fans still do care for these characters, which is awesome to know, if true.

        Game of Thrones, Walking Dead and other TV shows seem to be changing this. Killing characters for the sake of gaining ratings and erasing ‘character shields’. Movies are slowly following suit with this formula, and seem to be killing characters more so for drama + awards than for the betterment of storytelling.

        Whilst ’tis not my intention to disagree with either of your comments Anonymous 00:15 AM + Anonymous 05:53 AM I was just trying to convey further as to why I am so concerned over comments I read. Again, I hope both of you are correct.

          “Game of Thrones, Walking Dead and other TV shows seem to be changing this.”

          IDK about Walking Dead (not that much into TV, and I’m definitely NOT into Zombies, lol), but I am as big a fan of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire as I am of Star Wars. And as such, I can assure you that not ONE death in GRRM’s gory work (the basis of Game of Thrones, of course) has been gratuitous.

          The death of every major character in that story has helped move the plot forward tremendously. So much, in fact, that the death of Ned Stark led to a war that is still raging in Westeros, 4 books (and TV seasons) later.

          But since SW is certainly not ASoIaF/GoT (and Disney is definitely NOT HBO), I’m positive that Abrams won’t turn the ST into “A Song of Sith and Jedi”.

          Many fans may want to see the death of one (if not all) of the Big 3, but there are more fans who want to see SW go back to the spirit of the OT, which seems to be what Disney’s striving for. And, well, turning the ST into a GoT-style bloodbath would definitely NOT be too OT-like at all.

          This is not to say that Luke, Leia and Han (heck, even Chewie) have 100% blaster or lightsaber-proof plot armor. But again, if one (or more) of them goes, it’ll be done to help move the plot along, a la Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan or Yoda.

          It will not be gratuitous, just to sate a few (or many) fans’ thirst for the Big 3 blood.

    At the age of eight I watched a new hope when it first came out 18 times. I even sat outside the movie theatre and listened to it when I couldn’t afford to get in. Feeling excited about this movie. JJ is doing a great job because he’s a fan. Good on you JJ.
    STAY ON TARGET!
