Finn led his escape.

When they crashed he was ejected from the tie fighter.

I mean after they crash landed. He wasn't ejected, but fin was. His jacket was there but he wasn't. How did he get off the planet? It just seemed too easy compared to what happened to Finn. Maybe I'm reading into this too much, but when Kylo Ren was torturing him they show him scream and then hard cut to another scene, he may have broke or something. Then they never showed how he escaped so easily.

that's how movies work.

they don't show every characters journey to the same point, that would be dumb.

Pretty sure the Order wouldn't let their double agent be the primary pilot that destroyed their base.

Dameron/Rey/Finn will be a love triangle. This time the Skywalker princess will pick....wait for it....the brother.

I stared watching The Clone Wars on Netflix with my son. That is some good stuff.

Lol CubinNY is so bad at everything.

ETA: This was in regards to the Poe theory, not watching Netflix with his son. I didn't even see that post until after this one.

Random theory I saw about the original SW: thanks to the dumbass prequels, it's now ridiculous to think Luke was living as "Luke Skywalker" on his dad's home planet. We never, however, hear him called that actually in the movie until he busts Leia out of her call and says "I'm Luke Skywalker; I'm here to rescue you!" Sure, he's called Luke Skywalker in the credits and script, but I guess we can look at it like he was living as "Luke Lars" and that moment he finds the princess he's just deciding to go all in and declaring himself to be Luke Skywalker.

Not really anything important, but I got a kick out of it when reading it. Works for the character's arc and explains away some Lucas awfulness.

What is a Tattoine? A planet that had only bad memories for Anakin Skywalker. A planet on the outer rim of the galaxy. A planet where Ben Kenobi could live without even changing his last name. For all we know, Skywalker is a pretty common name.

Right, those are all the dumb explanations people have had to come up with thanks to the prequels. I just like that other one better. It's more in line with the simple Hero's Journey template of the story and the character.

The actor behind Jar Jar, Ahmed Best, won't deny the Darth Jar Jar theory.

http://io9.gizmodo.com/ahmed-best-is-a- ... 1764014960

I really liked that scene and it got cut from the movie because Jar Jar was so unpopular (in my opinion), it was just me and Palpatine walking down the runway, talking about the plans to turn the empire into what it had turned out to be. It was a very dark, very personal, quiet scene, but for some reason Palpatine decided to confide in Jar Jar that pretty much he was going to reap havoc. Wherever that scene is, that would really give great credibility to the Darth Jar Jar theory.

Sure in a modern times Star Wars it makes sense to have a female lead but this is a prequel dating back 30+ years ago and back then women just didn't have those jobs. Too unrealistic.

If you dare to brave the comments section, it's pretty clear that it is doing so. Which is great.

The Imperial dude with the white uniform makes me wonder if we'll see Thrawn eventually.
