20 Photos Of Star Wars VIII's Jedi Village... Maybe [Pics]

Submitted by: fancylad 11 months ago Entertainment

jedi-temple-pics-1Star Wars officials are obviously not commenting on these photos, but if you saw the most recent installment of Star Wars, you can kind of assume that this is the Jedi village where Luke Skywalker has been hiding, the same location where Rey handed Luke his lightsaber at the end of the movie. I'm liking what I'm seeing so far.

I'm well on the wrong side of 'the Ewok line', so don't give a damn. The whole franchise went to hell when it became kiddy friendly. 2c.

Agreed. My father and brothers love both Star Wars and Star Trek for different reasons. There's need for all the hate for either fandom.

I'm still looking forward to the next installment. I enjoyed episode VII enough, I think, because I didn't go in with unrealistic expectations. Besides some notable exceptions, sequels are rarely better than the original, and we're 7 in so far. I've actually seen people claim the last one destroyed the franchise...Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones were better? I don't think so.

I think it VII destroyed the franchise, but i'm willing to give VIII a chance to redeem it, although its a long shot hope at this point with no George Lucas. While i agree I II and III weren't all that great (compared to the original), IMHO VII made them look like masterpieces. There's two reasons for this. The first obvious reason is that it was a mash-up-ala-reboot of key Star Wars IV-VI elements. But the second not so obvious reason is that it did nothing to add to or complement star wars, and in fact took away from it, or distorted the lore of star wars. I-III were said to have distorted it a bit too, but in the end the movies complimented IV-VI because it gave us for the most part a history of IV-VI. But VII added nothing at all and it used all of the previous 6 movies as a crutch, sealing everything it could and basically raping it (not complimenting it in the slightest), and twisting it far beyond any sensibility that i can see. But i'm still open to VIII redeeming it, as it may be that it's a story that needs 2-3 parts to tell, but they need to really work hard to sew it into the fold of the star wars lore.

They purposely made VII to be reminiscent of IV-VI. They did that to make people remember what they liked about them, and to forget about what was done with I-III. It was quoted that VII was just, as I just said, and to establish characters. It has also been quoted that they plan VIII and IX to be completely different from anything we've seen before, and they are planning on taking a chance now that they have people hooked.

@DuckBoy87 Exactly! It was a Star Wars movie through and through.

Why would they need to make a movie for us to remember what the most popular movie series in the world is about? Did the whole world suddenly forget? Did it suddenly forget that those movies are updated in HD with wide blu-ray release, online streaming, and probably still among the highest pirated movies in the world? There's only one reason: the love for money.

Well, again, they were saying, "Look at what we're doing! We're not going to mess it up like Episodes I-III" Nothing more, nothing less.

couldnt read all that, only got as far as "I think it VII destroyed the franchise" i want to insult you, but im trying to be a better person. it so difficult not to tell you you are an asinine moron who doesnt know what he is talking about. it is wrong to say your opinion is stupid and wrong, so i wont. but know this... you have made a powerful enemy today, a powerful enemy!

lol an enemy over a movie? mmkay, whatever, but I do know what im talking about. I've been a huge fan of star wars all my life. I've read a lot of books, comics, stories, collected star wars toys, played the games, studied the lore, and delved into the expanded universe. Until 30m into VII i was a huge fan, but 1 hr later i was a disappointed one. Now i still accept all the pre-VII stuff as Star Wars Lore, and like i said VIII can still redeem it, but as it stands IMHO Star Wars ends on the black screen before LUCASARTS shows up on the screen at the start of VII. You're free to have your opinion too!

I just wanted to also add about the 'real' reviews of the force awakens. You can get a better idea if you sort the IMDB reviews by best (highest rated), like here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2488496/reviews?filter=best . If you scroll through 20 pages of the highest rated reviews, you'll find all of them are 5 stars or less (mostly 1-2 stars). There is one exception though, one 9 star review that says "dont pay attention to the negative reviews" lol.

Honestly, Return of the Jedi was more of a copy of A New Hope than The Force Awakens was. Having just rewatched it for the first time this weekend and I'll say I actually enjoyed it more. Not having the hype or the critics barring down, it was much easier to just let the movie happen. I had more fun the 2nd viewing and the Han moment was actually more emotional, even though I knew it was coming. To me it's just another Star Wars movie, and I'm not going to complain for fear of "Special Editions". It feels like putting on an old, worn but comfortable leather jacket. Needless to say I am excited to see EP VIII.

Different people have different opinions, and while i understand you dont like mine, you haven't proven mine wrong. I'll agree maybe it didn't ruin the franchise, but it ruined the mythology, lore and story of star wars. Rey doesn't know about the force but is a natural, which has never happened before, not even all the centuries leading up to VII. Even Anakin, whose readings were off the chart, still had to study and train for years to master the force. Rey had no prior force understanding, but finds out about it, learns all the ins and out of it, and can defeat a sith on her own, within 1-4 days story time, without a master? That nullified some pretty foundational parts of the lore that holds Star Wars up, and it wasn't even explained/woven in successfully to previous lore, it was just too focused on copying parts from the other movies to do that it seems. Not only that, but the movie was hyped hard (warning sign), a reboot (really? the most popular movie series in the world needs a reboot), and long time fans dissing it hard (check IMDB), this movie had all the markings of a purely greedy money grab. After watching it, i agree that's all it was a money grab. But like i said, despite this, i'm still willing to give it a chance with VIII, but they really need to work hard to weave it together.

people are entitled to opinions, but that doesnt mean they arent wrong. your opinions are wrong and therefore invalid, sir! i too have read books and comics from the expanded universe. shadows of the empire, the bounty hunter wars. i have the boba fett comic omnibus, and the rest of my boba fett collection is deserving of its own post. i still collect stars wars toys, i recently bought a lego set of the cerbon freezing chamber. i still play knights of the old republic just for fun, im starting to miss the sequel, never played the old republic cause mmos suck. i have the newest battlefront game, i dont play iot much cause unfortunately... it sucks. its still fun running around as thew empire and boba fett blowing up rebel scum, and it looks beautiful, it just wasnt worth the money i paid for it (that being said, the only next gen video game worth paying money for is fallout 4). i too have studied the lore and explored the expanded universe. i could sit here all day and list all the things i love about star wars. but that doesnt mean anything. star wars the force awakens was a great movie. if you dont agree, then you are wrong, its that simple. you are entitled to your opinion, but your opinion is wrong. you can go ahead and say you didnt like the movie, but to say that the force awakens ruined the franchise, well, did you take a look at the box office? doesnt matter what you think, the force awakens was a fantastic movie that rebooted the franchise. the force awakens is the perfect way to introduce the universe to kids who have never heard of star wars before. there are little girls running around out there dressing up as rey and playing with lightsabers.
