- Oct 27, 2017
Good evening, everyone. We are one week out from the red carpet premiere and eventually wide release of the final entry of the Skywalker saga. And since over recent weeks many of you have enjoyed making tons of threads about this apparently dead franchise - from revisiting everyone's favorite 8th movie entry, to the always welcome Sheev thread - I figured I might as well get this over with.
Anyway, in the lead up to film, please feel free to use this thread to discuss your hype, the various special events that will happen before release day (*cough* Fortnite *cough*), your found memories of the franchise from years past, new or related videos/marketing material, early reviews, and of course... your spitting, spicy, fiery ass takes about the multiple times this franchise has been killed throughout the last 40 years. Of course, please use your common sense and decency to keep everything as civil and respectable as possible.
NOTABLE DATES COMING
December 14 - Fortnite Risky Reel scene premiere
December 16 - Hollywood Premiere + red carpet livestream + social media impressions
December 17 - Star Wars Battlefront II Update featuring TROS content
December 18 - Review embargo presumably lifts by this point
December 19 - Opening night preview screenings
December 20 - Movie releases wide. Internet expected to fall into chaos. God have mercy on you all.
IMPORTANT SPOILER POLICY REMINDER
Now in case the big 1920x540 notice in the OP was not enough for you or the blatant warning on the thread title, there will be no spoiler/leak discussion in this thread whatsoever - not even tagged spoilers or your whacky attempt to veil them as speculation or dancing around the topic. If you want to discuss any of that stuff, please go to this thread instead or use your PMs with other interested folk. So please, please, please be considerate to your fellow Era members who do not usually regular the community threads.
That said, I will also remind everyone else that this thread will effectively become a spoiler thread on DECEMBER 21, just so we can streamline discussion. Once that date hits, all bets will be off.
And with all that said and done,
