    Who Is the 'Last Jedi' in the New 'Star Wars' Title?

    Another article found;
    Star Wars: Episode VIII now has a title — The Last Jedi
    http://ew.com/movies/2017/01/23/the-...i-has-a-title/

    The last Jedi would be the one who establishes a replacement for the Jedi Order. The Jedi Council dropped the ball horribly when they let Palpatine run amok in the highest chambers of the Republic. Time to reboot and try something new.

      Credo quia absurdum.


      Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman

        Evidently some of the cut content in episode 3 was a reference to this, in terms of Anakins doubts about the Jedi order. Originally, their incompetence or flawed nature was gonna be a bigger role to actually emphasize Anakin felt the Jedi actually were attempting a coup for the republic.

        But Lucas messed that one up. He tends to do a lot of that - starting with a strong idea and then watering it down. Like in an early script, the ewoks were Wookiee - which that alone fixes 90% of the problems with Return!

            The problem with the Star Wars universe is the prequel trilogy.

            Perhaps a Dallas approach, and label it as a Bad Dream, is an option.

                ‘Star Wars’ Plans, Ranked

                Luke Skywalker and Co. always pull it off and prevail in the end, but man, they are not the best strategists in the galaxy

                Solo: A Star Wars Story is kind of a heist movie. (Before you have my head, this isn’t a spoiler; the trailers have made it clear.) It’s like interplanetary Heat—justreplace the Infiniti J30 Al Pacino drives with the Millennium Falcon. As a heist movie, Solo continues the Star Wars franchise’s long-cherished tradition of centering the movies’ final acts on elaborate plans. The Death Star raid in A New Hope, the battle to destroy the new Death Star in Return of the Jedi, the plan hatched by the Resistance to destroy the Death Star–like Starkiller Base in The Force Awakens—you get the picture; there have been a lot of plans, many of which involve battle stations that can destroy planets. Aside from that, the climactic plans in Star Wars movies are defined by two primary characteristics: (1) they are mostly incomprehensible and bordering on nonsensical, and (2) they (mostly) work, whether through the power of the Force or sheer dumb luck. This is a feature, not a bug: These movies are endearing specifically because the little guys prevail against absurd odds when everything appears to be going to ****. It’s David beating Goliath, except David forgot to pack his slingshot on the day of the battle, so he defeated with Goliath with his fists (and maybe a proton torpedo).

                But not all Star Wars plans are equal—some are low-key genius, and some are astonishingly short-sighted. In honor of Solo’s release Friday, let’s revisit all of the plans from the Star Wars films over the years—even the small ones!—to determine which of them were somewhat realistic and/or well executed, and which ones probably could’ve used a second opinion. We’ll start with the least rational plans and work our way up to the “OK, these kinda make sense” ones.

                  No, 'Star Wars' Isn't Failing Because Of Hateful Trolls. It's Failing Because Kathleen Kennedy Has Done A Garbage Job.

                      As the closest thing to a "generic" Star Wars thread, and since this relates some to SW;

                      The production company behind Alias, the Star Trek reboot, and Star Wars Episode IX is a creative playhouse.
