I find the image of Luke to be especially neat. Do these photos confirm the "leaked" teaser poster?

I suspect that the Knights of the Ren are the new Captain Phasma - cool in costume, and sadly, that's about it.

I know, right? :lol:
But also every bit as Dickensian as any Star Wars name.

Revenge against Kylo Ren for having sliced Ezra/Snoke in half? :o

Poor Ezra. All the girls loved him. Especially Sabe ...
No ... I am referring to the Queen's Shadow book that ends with Sabe intent on finding out just how Padme died.
I guess she would be after the Emperor? Dunno. Just hope it is her!

Totally, if Ezra Snoke hadn’t pulled her from a doorway in the World Between Worlds, duh!

I like the theory that Ezra has been pulling various characters out of peril through WBW doors a la Ahsoka and they are now the Knights of Ren: Jyn Eros (sic), Cassian Andor, Rex, and of course Kittster.

A fairly interesting design, I like it. I prefer it to the standard FO Apple troopers.

So, the leaked poster is legit after all.

Apparently, the Sith Troopers were established in the EU.

Maybe I'm being cynical, but they seem like something out of fan fiction. Not the worse thing, I suppose. But, light years away from the risk-taking approach of the PT:

Doug Chiang wrote:
It was terrifying because I’d assumed when I was hired that I was going to do more of the classic designs. I had no idea where George was going to go in terms of design aesthetics. And so that’s why it horrified me, because I’d been doing homework, studying [original Star Wars concept artists] Joe Johnston and Ralph McQuarrie, so that I could do original trilogy designs. And during one of the first meetings, George said, “You know, forget about what you think Star Wars design is. We’re going to start over. We’re basically going back 30 years to lay the foundation for all of that to explain why designs in the original trilogy look the way they do.” And that completely floored me because I wasn’t sure what George meant. I didn’t know stylistically what he wanted to do. It scared me because literally I felt like I’d prepared for the wrong test.

No, I wouldn't say there is "no understanding." Certainly, the rehashing of the Empire and Rebellion into the First Order and Resistance is lazy and against the inspired creativity of the PT & OT. But, there are elements of Rey and Kylo's stories, which are compelling, original, and add to the overall ST mythology. Plus, Rain Johnson demonstrated an understanding of key Star Wars tropes, because he knowingly subverted a few in TLJ (to varying degrees).

Like everything Star Wars, the ST is a mixed bag. For me, I feel the stuff that's off - like the rehashing - is more off-putting than the issues with Lucas' films. That's just me, however.

So where the fuck is R2? :o

R WHO? I get the impression that J WHO does not like our amigo Deetwo very much. First he replaced R2 with BB-8 (who I absolutely adore more than any of the new human characters), then kept R-2 under a tarp for all of ACT ONE, then on ACT TU our little garbage pail buddy was only included because Rian apparently asked to have him there (So we could have the Leia hologram moment I guess.), and now it seems in act 3 that R2 is completely out of the picture again, presumably so we can have room for the little evil droid ... or whatever. I am not a fan of this new little shit - thank you much. Not at the expense of R2-D2.

Once upon a time I read that the entire Star Wars story was supposed to be told through the eyes of the droid R2-D2. That is clearly not the case any longer. And just to make sure, we put a bag over his head!

Where is R2-D2? Look in a wooden crate, in the back of the archives, next to that dusty old ark ....

Does this mean that most of the ST will get left out of the Journal since R2 isn't around for the majority of its events?

BTW: The "Sith Troopers" are First Order troopers. I'm not sure if that's significant or not.

A "new level" of First Order Troopers, which I find interesting since Abrams insisted that Snoke and Kylo Ren are not Siths. Perhaps we'll find that Sidious (like Sauron in LOTR) is still sort of behind all this shit that's been going down with the First Order.

Nice poster, certainly cooler than most movie posters we get nowadays. Here's a brief description of the sizzle reel that was presented:

From Hollywood Reporter:

The footage included a fleet of dozens of star destroyers in the atmosphere of a planet. Rey (Daisey Ridley) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) appeared in a later scene, fighting on a downed ship in the middle of the ocean as waves crashed around them. The biggest crowd pleasing shot occurred at the end of the reel, with Rey wearing a dark hood, sporting a double lightsaber


Word going round on social media is that this sizzle reel will be released online on Monday.

Not CG, but a high-end action figure: That new TROS poster used Hot Toys figure of Palpatine for the face.
