star wars has always been about the diversity of lifeforms in a multiverse of possibilities. the cantina scene in episode 4 makes that very clear. han's best friend is a big foot. c3po and r2d2 are sentient and have personalities. the all important jedi master is a 3ft tall lizard man.

Here we're starting to see real world effects of such places.

My favorite part about the whole universe is:

We're the Empire and we hate aliens, but if you're Force sensitive ... we can't afford to be choosy like that.

The main character is actually going to end up being Rey not Finn. The girl, not the black guy who starts off as a storm trooper, but does not stay a storm trooper. But I am sure people will also complaint about that. Rey is going to be the new Luke, the new Jedi.

The empire hating aliens was thrown out with the expanded universe. I am not positive. But I think the leader of the new empire is going to be an alien.

In a way, it almost looks they are doing some riff off some of the video games. The ones with Revan.

I can already call this story. Rey is Han and Leia's daughter (strong with the force). Finn will tag along with Rey find a light saber (probably Luke's). Rey and Finn will find Luke be trained to use the force Yoda style. Finn and Rey will fall in love and the Empire will want Rey because of her bloodline being that of Vader. Rey will struggle with the darkside but the love of Finn will bring her to the light yadda yadda yadda

I'll watch for the nostalgia but I'm betting on a watered down story that has very little that impresses the older fans. I'm betting mostly younger people will like it but I'm hoping I'm wrong.

Rey is for sure the main character but I'm betting Finn has a major role in the sequels and Rey is the villain

It's a JJ Abrams film.

You can watch it with the sound on...or off. Wont make a difference.

May be blasphemy to say it but this Star Wars actually looks more promising than all of the Lucas movies, infinitely better than the prequels anyway. The fight choreography is gonna be insane. If you haven't seen the raid 2 check it out to see what kind of stuff they can do. I don't really care what colour the protagonists are as long as it's a decent film.

How do you know these are even real people posting real things and not provocateurs or trolls?

Sounds like you are just trying to beg the question.

I don't plan to see it because the movies have sucked since the first three.

I doubt that many people share the beliefs of these people.

This is some faux outrage.

After the second three, I went back and watched the first three, original cuts with the same jaundiced eye ... It destroyed my childhood.

that entire twitter feed is just an excuse for everyone present to be racist as hell.

stormtroopers were the enlisted after the empire formed, clone troopers were mostly phased out by starwars episode 4

star wars is about diversity. always was.

this thread is racist. that twitter and ALL the comments on it, are racist.

this is how we will lose our freedom of speech. rub it up into a race war, make sure there are anti-racist laws in place, and then use them to silence the planet.

welcome to your own nightmare.

I think some of them were "pressed" too. Or at least I got the idea that sometimes service wasn't always voluntary.

Hate to break it but i believe the premise of the movie does not include any Earthlings so our limited notion of skin type/colour or other Human racially motivated bullcrap is neither here nor there i imagine.
