    Marvel started doing a standard operating procedure where they works on scripts for years with multiple writers and directors doing rewrites sometimes, and they budget in reshoots their actors are required to do. Not including all their movies, but the good ones at least it seems. What does star wars do?

    ...no really I want to know, what the hell are they doing? Lol.

    • Qweq Qweq

      Oh ya. And marvel typically tries to stick to the source material as much as they can and even go so far as to rely on it was a formula for success.

    Does Colbert always have his guest sit down before he does and just stand there for no reason like an idiot Everytime? I heard someone mention it and didn't think anything of it. But now I notice it happens every time since then. And im just wondering. Is it really EVERY TIME?
    And if so Maybe he's doing it so they can edit it for time or something, add or subtract a few seconds or so as needed? I have no idear. But maybe he's just a dick.

    First he just lied...weeks later it turns out that he said in another interview didn't finished it. So I hope Colbert ask him about that (he won't) Second he was hired to write a trilogy and he just left some "ideas" for the next director to pick up where he left the movie. How irresponsible is that? This is not a TV show like Lost where you screw us up or Fringe. YOU JJ are the reason Star Wars got destroyed because you were unable to come up with a script and you had to copy almost episode 4. Your ineptitude will follow you no matter how many free shows you give

      From what I now he was hired to write the new trilogy. Instead he convinced and decided Disney that he would live some "ideas" for however took over the new film to continue. Sadly they either ignore his ideas or didn't like them, but a lot of people believed that he just copy episode 4 and wash his hands. Now he has to fix a broken legacy. Again Disney might have ignored his "mystery box ideas" but he was very irresponsible of not make solid characters.

    Ok the most unfair thing here is that winy star wars fans are judging Abrams based on one franchise. Like fuck off, I'm tired of seeing comments like "he's a horrible director." Or "He ruined star wars forever." First off obviously plenty of you haven't seen his previous work, and second, people throw a fit when star wars 8 did not deliver on expectations and then just say it's the worst movie ever. Like guys, it was a decent movie with plot holes. but it had plenty of cool things in it to keep me entertained. also grow up star wars fans! Your making Steeler Fans look like Quire Children! You act like its the end of star wars when truth be told, it will never die. You salty idiots are letting a franchise defeat you. just sad lol i like the new franchise movies and i think Abrams is a very good director who doesn't deserve the hate he is getting. So sense i don't mind getting hate or criticism, COME AT ME BITCH FIT STAR WARS FANS! lol :D

    ARMY Frogs are trained and battle tested
    Long nights wide awake- unrested
    Marine Toads Bout Bare chested
    Gain rank after being selected
    Frogs are agile, fierce, competitive, and athletic
    EEL will shock THE WORLD…electric
    Cain Toad imply Viking battle tactic
    Air Force Frogs soar though the night on humming birds
    Toad communicate with Lizards using signs not words
    Air Force Frogs master the Bow -arrows hit the mark
    None is more Powerful- than a Frog name Dart
    Dart Frog can kill even when not there -solitary not one to share
    After Dart passes through an area -traces of poison lingers everywhere
    A POWERFUL TOAD named Goliath quotes "best not to feud with who i ally with!
    Toads unearth precious stones -then, mold into medieval weapons
    Hammers, Mallets, spears, armor- respond with aggression when threaten
    Confrontational, built for battle in physical stature
    Goliath Toad’s manner when in danger is Berserker
    Loud croaks seldom whisper
    Toads construct armament using gem and mineral
    Both species are nocturnal -
    willing to sacrifice to obtain all that is essential
    Everything is Done for honor. Recognition and glory
    Conquer foe for trophy and victory
    Fly through the air with an Eagle
    The Harpy is powerful, intelligent, and regal
    To Toads the Lake is an ocean
    When hunting fish - a reel life and death situation
    If you are a Hunter - death is a real tradition
    Living in a vast rainforest - sounds dangerous

    J.J. actually have different story for ep. 8. But we all know where it went. Compared to Rian, he is not that bad. But Gareth Edwards is the best director in my opinion. He knew Star Wars by heart and even visited tatooine. Rogue One was a good storytelling, and gives chills to the audience.

    People complain (rightfully) about Kennedy and Johnson ruining the franchise, but do not underestimate Jar Jar Abrams' role. The force awakens was a pile of shit. A copy-paste of episode IV, stuffed with luck and coincidences, and a Mary Sue. Not to forget the unbelievable political status quo 30 years later, that makes the original trilogy completely pointless.

    How bring back Luke without problems - All the time there was about “the chosen one” and about bringing the balance of the force. So there is a time to use that core stuff. The balance of the force is not only light or only darkness is like jin and yang half dark, half light. Luke should be the first, the chosen one who reach that balance, who also study the dark force, who is able to use the both sides of the force. This move also explains his behavior in case of Ben Solo as someone who is still searching the perfect point of equilibrium but like all human beings slip and do it wrong. That also explains why he cut himself from the force. Because he made mistake and he was afraid that he fall in to the dark side. Now to the point of bringing back Luke to life. If we use explanation above Luke don’t need to be dead at all. He achieved the balance or be very close and do what he did with fighting in ghost form with Kylo. Now right after when his garments fall he should awake naked in dark force cave lying on stones sucked by a force there and go through some light & darkness trial, something hard and tragic and finally becomes the first, the new entity with total control and balance of the force. One more thing that also explains why Luke said that era of Jedi ends and the title The Last Jedi.
