I'm always down to see more Gwendoline Christie.
Is it just me or do the "villains" look less imposing without masks/helmets ?
I agree with you. With the mask on, they seem more intimidating because you don't know what they look like underneath. Without the mask, they're just a normal person essentially.
i never thought of it that way... but boba fett no helmet... never would have been the same. Darth vader. storm troopers all less intimidating.... maybe its because they are wearing armor and it looks funny without the helmet? hmmmm thought provoking
Think about the first time we really see Anakin in the original trilogy. Not the back of his head in Empire, but when Luke takes off 'Vader's helmet to reveal someone who doesn't look intimidating at all.
and here come all the feels....
And suddenly, I'm crying at work.
I miss Carrie so much.
I'm not crying..... It's allergies. Cedar is really high right now.
I am in love with the costume/alien prosthetic design, holy moly.

I'm a literal wreck right now.
WE HAVE OUR FIRST LAURA DERN PICTURE
Vanity Fair reports that she is playing Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, a leading member of the resistance (.....which definitely is not the "Mara Jade in Everything But Name character that I was expecting)
... and Benicio Del Toro as 'DJ'
There's some more info about Kelly Marie Tran's character.
Spoiler: Rose spoilers, kind of
Her name is Rose Tico, she has a sister named Paige who is a pilot, and she has adventures with Finn.
You never know. Count Dooku was an old man and a bad @$$
She could be an undercover Jedi.
I'm just holding onto strings of hope that she and Luke are Rey's parents.
So Del Torro's character's name is never revealed but referred to by some fake name. It doesn't discount my theory but it doesn't help it either. I thought maybe he'd be Ezra Bridger but that doesn't look like what I'd envision Ezra to wear.
Laura and some of the other characters really give me a prequel vibe. I really like that we are starting to see Lucasfilm neatly weave the two eras together.
Laura and all of the casino planet characters are wearing the most opulent outfits since the prequels
Hard to believe that 40 years has gone by so fast and how much I still have an obsession with Star Wars.
Happy Birthday, Star Wars!
Wasn't it rumored that he was playing Gannis Ducain?
Here's more Star Wars fun to help celebrate!
This is more likely, but I kind of want Benecio to play a force user because that would be badass.
Star Wars is one of those things that I feel like I was never without. Sure, I was born over 14 years from the first film premiering, but in my mind, Star Wars was always there, in a sense. My dad had the 1995 original trilogy box set, and it felt like he would watch a movie every Saturday morning while working out (well, maybe not every Saturday, but there were certainly a lot of them). I'd walk into the office/gym and sit down next to the TV to watch. I was transfixed.
Happy 40th birthday, Star Wars. May the next 40 be good to you, and involve a re-release of the original unaltered films (please, Disney, do this).
