Yea I read some of that stuff, too. I particularly enjoyed the novels and storyline surrounding the Solo twins and was really hoping that was where they were going with these movies but alas...

Zak is mostly correct here. The only official canon at this point are the 6 movies, the Clone Wars TV series/movie from Cartoon Network, and the Star Wars Rebels series that's on Disney XD right now. Anything that was released after like September 2014, I think, also counts but there hasn't been much.

Kinda sucks because, like I said, I wanted them to continue on with the Solo kids as they were all pretty interesting. The movies are about the Skywalker family so one of the people in the new movies has to be an offspring of someone (most think Rey is Luke's kid). Starkiller from the Force Unleashed would have been PERFECT for the Star Wars Rebels series too so it sucks he isn't official canon anymore.

I think it's kinda funny that episode VI is called Return of the Jedi but it seems nobody knows the Jedi exist in episode VII. I guess they were just kidding, heh.

The Jedis were rare and their powers were rumors for most people in the other movies.

A few dozen Jedis in a galaxy full of hundreds of billions of aliens.

In the OT, sure, but not in the prequels. The Jedi order was very well known in the republic. I am probably just stuck in the expanded universe again where luke rebuilt the order and they again served as the galaxy's protectors.

I'm looking forward to it. The main villain looks pretty awesome and it seems like he has a backstory.

Halloween was fun. One of my boys was Kylo Ren and the other a storm trooper. Wifey chose to be Chewy.

He pretty much has. He said they took the story in a direction that he would not have.

Just got out. It was awesome. Couple nitpicks, but it was good.

How i felt as well. I thought it was on par with the original 3. Oddly enough, i thought the biggest issues with the film were when the older cast were on screen. A lot of those parts felt very bogged down after the excellent first 1/3. Great news being that the new members are awesome and are characters i honestly am excited to watch for another 2 movies.

So I was trying to wait until next week to go see it. That didn't happen. No plot details in the spoiler, but I'm taking no chances.

Spoiler!

Agree with cmarq. Far more interested in the new cast than rehashing and giving nods to the old series at this point. Hoping the next two just stick with them for the most part. It was so refreshing to have likeable characters again. They felt human.

Also how badass was the last lightsaber scene when ken was trying to pull the lightsaber out of the snow and then it just flies right past him to ren? So awesome.
