Films

Episode VIII.
One rumor has become fact. Tom Hardy will appear as a storm trooper in Episode VIII. Another rumor, which has yet to become fact, but has yet to die, is the rumor that not only Tom Hardy will play a storm trooper in the film, but so will Prince William and Prince Harry. I can see them doing it, as it looks to be something they'd enjoy, and any money they earn, would then be given to charity.

Another fact is the size of Snoke's ship, which in Earth measurements stretches 25,000 feet from stem to stern, or almost 5 miles.

Thus, how do you see storm troopers traveling from one end of the ship to the other.

a.) Segways
b.) Rollerblades
c.) Motor scooters
d.) Golf carts
e.) Clown cars
f.) Bicycles
g.) Some other means of transportation.

How many storm troopers will fit in a clown car? 3 in the front seat. 3 in the back seat. 2 in the trunk. 2 in the engine compartment, as there is no engine in a clown car. and 1 in the glove compartment, or 11.

Episode IX
Will this be the last episode? While the films continue, and while there is some difference, the executives at Lucas Film have expressed no interest in doing more Episode films.

What began at Jakku will end at Jakku. We know that Lucas Film is interested in filming in Abu Dhabi, and as Abu Dhabi was a stand-in for Jakku in Episode VII, it is thought Abu Dhabi will once more stand in for Jakku.

The lack of interest in doing more Episode films leaves room for doing more stand-alone origin films. Right now the order seems to be . . .
2020 Obi Wan Kenobi
2021 Boba Fett
2022 Yoda

The subtitle for the Obi Wan Kenobi film is Joshua Tree, which suggests that it'll be filmed at Joshua Tree National Park in southern California, and it's desert location than could be used as a stand in for Tatooine, between Episodes III and IV.

Boba Fett.
The question about this one is whether it'll just feature Boba Fett or Boba Fett and some of the other bounty hunters. And depending upon where and when the film takes place, they could include . . .

Asajj Ventress -- Athgar Heece -- Aurra Sing -- Bossk -- Boushh -- Cad Bane -- Dengar -- Derrowen -- Embo -- IG-88 -- Jakoli -- Kiera Swan -- Mantu -- Onca -- Seripas -- Zam Wesell -- Zuckuss -- and 4-Lom.

More as it become available.

6 facts.

First Order
The First Order has something to counter BB-8. It's called BB-9E. Available now for sale here on Earth.

Kylo Ren
The Knights of Ren, of which Kylo Ren is a master, is a lower order of the Praetorian Guard. That gives him a connection to the past episodes. We'll see whether there are any more connections to the past, when Episode VIII opens here on Earth in December.

Rey
She is definitely connected to the Force. Which we knew, but which we may not have known, this is a powerful clue to her parentage, which should be revealed in Episode VIII. We may also find out what is her connection to Kylo Ren.

Luke
He and Chewbacca have a reunion in Episode VIII. Of course, I have not seen it, except for the stills, but it is suppose to be a real tear-jerking moment, especially, as they brought in their go-to-composer John Williams to write original music for the scene.

A weapon that'll stun your opponent.
A weapon that'll keep your opponent at a distance.
A weapon that'll counteract a Sith's force lightning.
I'm down with that.

Apparently, Luke, besides his light saber, will be wielding a weapon that projects force lighting in Episode VIII.

DJ
Played by Benicio del Toro in the film is a slicer, or something similar to what we call a hacker here on Earth. His ability as a slicer will play an important part in Episode VIII. We should also find out what his connection to Snoke, if any, as people have noticed they both wear rings that are similar.

More as it becomes available.

That sounds neat.  They carefully maintained some of the low tech feel (by modern standards) of the OT in VII, so I'm betting a slicer is a somewhat literal name - like physically slicing the chips, circuitry, vacuum tubes, whatever, in computer/ship systems to achieve some result.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
