    1. And they were vague on some, so we don’t know, for example, commentaries, or how many deleted scenes we’re getting, but my understanding was that JJ cut 30 minutes from the film in the end. I wonder how transparent they’ll be with those scenes and are deleted scenes canon in our newly unified Star Wars media uber universe? Food for thought.

      1. Yes, some very valid point there. Expect they will clarify what exactly will be on this release. Will be interesting to see how they put it all together.

    1. I cannot wait for these special features. It looks like our wealth of riches will extend to home releases as well. I’d be surprised if we don’t see a Rogue One teaser either with Civil War or before.

      1. I hear the Rouge One trailer is pretty dark. If the film brings back the classic Darth Vader as the primary villain, complete with James Earl Jones, then BAM it becomes a must-be event.

        You’d have to go back as far as TFA to find a comparable situation.

      2. It’s 1980, you’re hired to voice the Emperor in ESB, you think you’re a part of film history, then one day decades later you wake up and: no. I know Lucas wanted continuity, but the old woman with the baboon eyes and the voice of Clive Revill was a creepy and effective creation, and a lot of love and care went into making it.

        There is such thing as artistic license. Palpatine in ESB didn’t have to match the other movies exactly.

        As for Bulloch, I did not realize he was still alive, but you know that the one big thing that hampers my enjoyment of the prequels is the origin for Boba, so I hope Kasdan has something clever and cool up his sleeve.

      3. Bulloch had a cameo in Episode III (George’s way of saying sorry I suppose), but he’s still alive. He’s 71 though so let’s get a massive sample of his voice so it can be used for the future.

      4. Wait… Jeremy is in ROTS? HOW DID I NOT KNOW THAT? Please direct me to where to look!!! Also, I don’t care what role Lucas might have given him to make up for things, it was not as cool as Boba Fett.

        The Fett standalone could be awesome, but is fraught with peril. Whenever a villain gets his own movie, he turns into Father Knows Best. Maleficent, anyone? And I hear they’re working on a Cruella DeVil prequel. She wants to skin puppies and turn them into a coat, so she is beyond sympathy or redemption, but Disney is going to try. Even Hannibal Lector (in Hannibal) turns into a good guy, a romantic hero. He eats a man’s brains, but he does it it in his role as Clarice’s guardian angel. There is no way around this. You can’t base a film around an evil hero. Watch the Talented Mr. Ripley with Matt Damon to see what I mean.

      5. Oh, I know nothing is official. It’s just that the concept of a Fett film has been tossed around. Disney chose the first two standalones wisely… that’s IF Vader has a strong presence in Rouge One.

      6. There’s nothing to fear, then. TFA was not some weird, nostalgia-driven, 2 billion dollar fluke. People are going to eat Rouge One up, from obsessive fanatics to casual filmgoers. Darkness and grittiness, Vader and JEJ, Han and Chewie meeting for the first time, personal business with Boba Fett… it’s like Disney is distilling the essence of the popularity of SW. I sincerely hope Ewan MacGregor is next. You could make a hell of an epic Western set on Tatooine between Episodes 3-4.
