All is three

Though I admit that that gets cut off at the wrong point and misses Zathras' line about his own fate

It would be kinda weird if Episode VIII picked up immediately after VII left off.  But it would also be weird if it picked up sometime later and resorted to using flashbacks.  But it was also weird showing Rey's Force vision, not to mention Anakin's dream about his mother in Ep II.  Sticking to the episodic, straightforward storytelling used in the Holy Trilogy kinda makes it hard to try anything new, I guess.

Given the amount of criticism VII got for retreading the original, I would be surprised and disappointed if they didn't take a different direction. Basically, I hope they are about to do something that's far from obvious. What that could be is... well... far from obvious. Obviously.  8-)

From what I've heard, Episode VIII will at least partly backtrack and follow Luke's story from the time of Ben Turning to the Dark Side to Rey's arrival on his hermitage-world.

Carrie (and Gary) Fisher confirm that Space Bear is the working title for Star Wars: Episode VIII

I hope this doesn't mean we see a return of the Ewoks.

Or maybe everything from Chewbacca's POV?

They give movies, especially ones expected to be high profile, fake names during shooting. In part to throw people trying to find shooting of 'Star Wars' unofficial stuff. Throwing paparazzi and such off track. Which makes it stupid and pointless to tell people what name the movie is shooting other.. I expect it was changed shortly after the 'reveal'. If not outright faked from the start.

I know, it's like that with all kinds of projects. However, production names are usually relevant to some degree. It might be central to the plot (tho probably not) or it might be something related to some minor detail the crew found funny, or some intern running gag.

Yes, and in this case the running gag probably started with a bunch of interns trying to work out how to make fans paranoid that the ewoks were coming back.

J.J. Abrams: Gay Characters Coming to ‘Star Wars’

Pure clickbait.  Abrams, who has no creative control over the next two episodes or any of the other upcoming films, is only saying that he thinks there could be gay characters in one of the movies someday, maybe.  Anyway, Disney would probably never allow it, for fear of losing a few million in ticket sales.

That said, I still have my fingers crossed for Poe/Finn.

My interpretation (which is as valid as any other until episode VIII proves otherwise) is that Poe is gay and Finn is bi. I'm still all about the Puffin though.

That's been my interpretation as well.  Love me some cocky gay hotshot pilot.  And it almost seems to be the direction the next one is taking, with Rey off training with Luke and unavailable for romance.  Wouldn't be too much of a stretch for Poe to help nurse Finn back to health, then take him on a secret Resistance mission as a copilot/gunner, where sparks fly.  I know I've said that already, but heck, repeating it can't hurt.

Of course, the Brand!New!Gay!Character will actually be someone who gets a minute or two of screentime and barely a hint at their sexuality, and the folks at Disney will still manage to pat themselves on the back for being bold and inclusive.  Sigh.

Heh, just read something along those lines last night:

Quote
the number of times in the original trilogy that han rescues luke from danger or tells him to be careful or just generally worries about luke’s well-being and makes it his personal business to ensure luke is safe
luke disappearing for decades
han coincidentally leaving at the exact same time
and coincidentally saying that he and chewie have been traveling all over the galaxy in the time since (“i knew we should’ve double-checked the outer rim territories!”)
and coincidentally saying that he’s spoken to several people who “knew luke best” about where luke may have gone and what he might be doing
and coincidentally insisting that bb-8 stay with him instead of going with finn and rey when their group comes under attack
and coincidentally demanding to see the map
and coincidentally immediately knowing that the map is incomplete
because he’s been looking… for luke… this whole fucking time…

Yeah, it's Tumblr.

I know.

Saddest part of that is the fact that I was not aware of the animosity that existed between him him and Anthony Daniels.  It's sad when you hear about things like that and know that the passing of one will mean that the situation will never get resolved.  Both were good men otherwise, it's just silly when you hear about such petty disputes that should be easily sorted out but aren't and now never will be.
