    Great episode again though I would take issue with Campea’s rant against David Prowse. Darth Vader had a very, very specific way he carried himself – they way he walked, the way he turned, the way he would point or nod his head, was unique. And it’s a quality that you can’t just automatically replicate without knowing what is is you’re doing. I would also say the same for Peter Mayhew as Chewie.

    I’d also add on the Han Solo casting that ( echoing Mark ) we’re dealing with the same continuity here and not a reboot, so the young Han ought to be believable that he might grow into a Harrison Ford. I do not get that impression at all with Ehrenreich.
    I know Kristian was vocal at how short Dave Franco was and Ehrenreich is only an inch taller, and about 4 or 5 inches shorter than Harrison Ford. There’s movie magic and then there’s wildly different ( which Ehrenreich is – in height, face shape, body shape ).

    Best way to market Rogue One for the neophytes and get them to easily understand that it takes place before Ep IV is to put on all the posters and written marketing something along the lines of:
    “Before the Jedi Returned…Before The Empire Struck Back…Before Hope was born Anew…there was ROGUE ONE.”

    Kristian Harloff’s confidence in Rey being Luke’s daughter appears to be waning.

    • April 15, 2016 at 5:44 pm

      I agree. And so is mine. 🙁

        I don’t think Rey not being a Skywalker will detract from their legacy. Luke will always be the one who destroyed the Death Star, turned Darth Vader to the light, and assisted in the demise of the Emperor. Leia played her part with her dedication to the leadership of the Rebellion/Resistance. Moving away from the Skywalker bloodline would be a smart move for Disney, otherwise it would be in danger of becoming too soapy.

    As much as I respect Harloff for his knowledge of SW, I don’t believe he actually read the C-3PO comic. I bet he skipped to the last couple of pages and saw the memory and the hand thing. The comic was surprisingly good and I say that as someone who doesn’t really like C-3PO.

      He also beleives C-3PO at the end of TFA having a gold arm is a continuity error – how could that be? They didn’t just accidentally re-spray his arm gold? Threepio having a red arm ( or even a gold arm ) would need to have arrived at that point by a process – it doesn’t happen as an “error”. Perhaps he WAS meant to have a scene where his red arm is replaced by a gold – that’s the only thing that could make sense, though I am open to other possibilities.

        Oh stop it. It was absolutely an continuity error. It happens in films ALL THE TIME.

        • April 16, 2016 at 6:58 am

          Nope. JJ did it at the request of Anthony Daniels, and the canon explanation is probably that C-3PO just had the arm spray painted gold.

        • April 16, 2016 at 10:26 am

          So they accidently furnished a gold arm, brought it set, affixed it to Anthony Daniels’ arm, and neither he nor anyone in the entire crew noticed, when it’s been red all the way through the production?

      If I was to list the 100 Star Wars characters I want to read a comic, nay, a SERIES about, C-3PO probably wouldn’t make the list. I believe Kristian read it and had the same reaction 99.9% of people did. It sucked and was completely unnecessary.
