    That would be nice, but looks like we will be getting scoundrel with the possible heart of gold.

    So does my dad. There are a couple changes that I don't mind (Biggs in ANH & the Ian McDiarmid Emperor in Empire), but I could do without the rest. I remember being so disappointed in the 2004 DVDs.

    I did not mind most of the changes that came about in the special editions save for the musical number in Jedi.

    Han shot first and CGI Jabba are also pretty bad, mostly in execution.

    Agreed. I would love to see them take another stab at the Jabba scene.

    How Snoke & Kylo Ren haven't killed her yet after her allowing everything for Starkiller Base & The First Order to pretty much go to heck in Ep. 7 is beyond me. Not sure how she manages to keep her position (and life) after that show of weakness, but hopefully it is further explained / redeemed in TLJ. I really want to like this character.

    Her escape from Starkiller Base is supposedly going to be explained in a 4 issue comic book run.

    Have you been reading the comics? I've only read the novels, which I absolutely love.

    I have them all, but about 90% of them are on my reading "pile of shame" that I need to work through. I finished the first Aftermath novel and I am about half way through the second.

    The second and third Aftermath novels blow the first away.

    Last Jedi behind the scenes video. It shows a lot of new stuff so is almost as good as another trailer.

    Definitely got goose bumps when Carrie Fisher said, "It's about family and that's what's so powerful about it" and did a little salute. I have a feeling this film (and Episode 9) will give both Leia and Fisher a proper and respectful sendoff.

    Oh yea, I still have the THX remasters and the SE on, yes, LASER DISC!

    That behind the scenes video was EPIC! And the "Its a wrap" was hilarious. I can't wait for the 2nd trailer!

    The Last Jedi will be EPIC. Finally got to see the behind the scenes trailer. Just down right awesome and unique stuff going on. Can't to see Infin... I meant Star Wars.

    I re-watched The Forces Awakens yesterday and it hit me that Ren and Ray might be brother and sister.
