It seems that the scenes where the X-Wings go all 633 Squadron was filmed in Cumbria, so I guess I live in a Galaxy far far away now. Razz

How good was it on a scale of 1 to 6, 1 being The Phantom Menace, and 6 being The Empire Strikes Back? Razz

Everyone knows that The Empire Strikes Back is the best, Hinkel. Razz

I'd say it's comfortably the 4th best Star Wars film.

The only non-spoilery comments I'd make is that there weren't too many good quotes that I can think of off the top of my head, though I guess that comes with time - plus I found the soundtrack to be a bit lacking compared to the others, there wasn't much iconic battle music in the soundtrack to the same level as those for Yavin, Hoth and Endor, etc - not that I'm being critical or anything, but I need dramatic pew pew music for when I play Star Citizen!  Razz

But then the Prequels had very good music, just the rest of it was a bit naff, so I'm happy with it being the other way around this time.

I really liked it.

I'd agree with it being the 4th best film. It has a similar feel to the originals with less use of CGI which is great, some good humour in there too. They were some plot jumps that irked me a little which I felt could have been fleshed out. However, I guess no-one wants to sit through another epic Lord of the Rings length film, so they had to make it shorter.

Well of course, the top 3 films are:

1, The Star Wars Holiday Special (which I swear is an Imperial recruitment film)
2, Ewoks: The Battle for Endor
3, Caravan of Courage: an Ewok Adventure

I would have liked to have a bit more detail with the different factions and the like, though saying that - the prequels had plenty of Senate scenes for all the good they did. Razz

Though I wouldn't say no to a 100 + episode Star Wars TV Series personally! 'Star War and Peace' Laughing

Looks good to me.

The empire admiral in the trailer looks suspiciously like Grand Admiral Thrawn. However, in the book I read years ago he had blue skin...minor detail I know.

(/Nerd On)

I think the Officer is from the ISB (Imperial Security Bureau), which is tasked with internal intelligence stuff, and wear white jackets and black trousers and cap like him - I know this because I'm a nerd, and because I also used to be an ISB Officer back in the day. Laughing

Granted that was before Disney bought it and de-canonised? the expanded universe, but it would make sense given the plot.

(/Nerd off)

Thrawn is actually in the animated series Star Wars Rebels, so has been re-canonised, and does indeed have blue skin.

I bow to your superior Nerd knowledge. Very Happy

This was the book I read back in the 1990s (good times, all just fields and you could leave your door open at night)  where he first appeared.

This is the only Star Wars book I got around to reading:



By the way, the actor playing that Imperial Officer in Rogue One is also in Squadron 42, so we get both Luke Skywalker and an Imperial Officer. Laughing
