oh, mine too! Twisted Evil

TLJ is full of subtle (and some not so subtle) sexual images - Rian was a naughty boy! Mwehe

@rey09

rofl - check out the blood spurting everywhere haaaa!!! totally not possible with a lightsaber but because it's Snoke I love it haaa. I must be a bit twisted.. the first thing I noticed is that this artwork kept Snoke's hands attached to his arms. I noticed because in the movie Snoke basically got the skywalker special - and I loved this little touch! haaaa!

Rofl at the massive fingers in the foreground haaaa.. I'm sure you will not be alone in that gutter rey09!
Thanks for sharing this!  this comic has snuck up on me I've been so busy in RL.

Looks like issue 5 of the comic adaptation is released 1 August.. very soon!
Here's a preview of the issue if anyone wants a sneak peek!
https://www.flickeringmyth.com/2018/07/preview-of-marvels-star-wars-the-last-jedi-adaptation-5/
So far it seems to stick very closely to the movie, but some of the artistic choices are super interesting in terms of what is being emphasised.
I'm liking the emphasis on how brutal Snoke was with Rey - this doesn't get acknowledged enough!

hi Everyone, just thought I'd give a shout out to some new series which are being published on starwars.com - good, thoughtful topics digging deeper into characters, connections, themes etc.
Here are the various series and their links:
The star wars 'deep dive' :https://www.starwars.com/news/tag/the-star-wars-deep-dive

The 'always two' series: https://www.starwars.com/news/tag/always-two
[this article is in this series but seems to have not been tagged correctly- https://www.starwars.com/news/always-two-ezra-and-kanan ]

And the 'star wars echoes' series: https://www.starwars.com/news/tag/star-wars-echoes
- cool.. Rey's connection to Ezra- I had never thought about it!! Enjoy!

@DeeBee

The in-depth essays are fascinating, yet I noticed that they are composed by collaborators (people outside LF). My fingers are crossed that what on paper, which seems to be a good idea, does not become a mess because of the opposing viewpoints of the SW mythos, and specific characters (i.e. Ben Solo/Kylo Ren). For example, in the Rey/Ezra essay "Kylo’s emotional connection with Rey revealed that he only wanted the girl from Jakku to serve as his partner in a bid to rule the galaxy." and "She is now the last of the Jedi and must complete her training — and confront Kylo Ren — on her own." To be fair, both statements can be read in a neutral stance, or misdirection stance, yet considering authorgate...I feel dread. lol Anyway, I hope starwars.com asks known Reylo meta writer to contribute, as well. And if they already have - wonderful! Very Happy

Indeed!- I view them as think pieces only - not facts being presented from an authority, even if it is published on starwars.com.
I don't think different viewpoints will influence star wars. The stories are finalised years ago, and the speculation/different viewpoints on a yet to be completed story are all part of the story unfolding.. for me, I don't worry about this..

Yeah I noticed that Kylo reference you quoted from Neil Kleid too - I figure it is referring to a particular point he was trying to make when comparing Ezra and Rey - but, for me, the 'only' in the sentence tips this over into 'I don't agree' territory. It's not the only reason. Without the 'only' I would read it as neutral. but that's okay he can have an opinion - we don't have the full story yet, and we certainly have been kept in the dark at this point about kylo's motivations (these star wars writers are also in the dark).

I find the star wars articles generally avoid extreme and inflammatory language, and are overall thoughtful and worth considering - even if I don't always agree.

I share your hope for reylo meta writers to be published on starwars.com - but, I suspect we won't see anything like that till after IX is released. I think when the talented reylo meta writers IMHO join the dots the ending of IX becomes too obvious. LOL! Gotta keep that mystery and suspense alive and all that haaaaa..
bottom line for me is: just give me reylo happy ending in IX and I won't have to have any starwars.com articles discussing it haaaaa!

I promise - the differing views ('within' LF, due to authorgate, or the essay think pieces) don't cause me worry about influence on the story because I agree, the LF Story Team and Kathleen Kennedy have decided, PLUS with J.J. - TFA showed us the breadcrumbs and mystery boxes of Reylo and Bendemption, so he will definitely finish what he started. teehee....

Anyway, I only feel worry because of the drama it creates. There is enough drama on the outside, so if it is caused from actions of LF, or connected to LF due to contracts, etc...I just....sigh. So, my fingers are crossed, and that indeed - excellent Reylo meta authors are given the reins when IX premieres. Smile

@SW_Heroine_Journey

For me, I just figure - it's more enjoyable to not worry  Smile Star Wars is for enjoyment.. as you say, real life has enough worries of it's own - I've chosen not to attend to the drama.  There is way too much positive star wars stuff for me to soak up and enjoy, I just don't have the space for drama - whooo hooo!! I'm glad together we can keep the joy alive! Reylo meta authors definitely do that too!!  

Oh hey SW_Heroine_Journey, I hope you enjoyed the Thrawn Alliances book! Are you finished?
I haven't progressed much so far - I'm reading the aftermath trilogy.. [just finished the 2nd and am just starting the third], then I'll get on to Thrawn. [I've stopped going in that thread now till I've read it lol] However - I did watch the first issue of the Thrawn comic voice dubbed on youtube. Whoa!!!! I can totally see why Thrawn is so fascinating and well loved!!!!

Hi all! Poe Dameron #30 is released 15 August.. and I've just come across a preview..
So far, we have a new planet added to canon...
Here are a few tidbits of interest...

Spoiler:
Seems we have a new planet (Ikkrukk) and city (Grail City) that have been introduced to canon. The planet is in the mid rim.

Another new tidbit, seems Leia had alist of potential allies that she provided. I hadn't heard that confirmed before but I figure it was implied..

Looks like during the events of TLJ - the First order is busy trying to invade Ikkrukk - and black squadron pick up their distress signal.


would you like to see Ikkrukk in IX?

how about that nasal finery all?!

I am indeed finished! It actually causes me to wonder if 1) We received a hint about the bad guys (or one of them) in IX and 2) In the end, Thrawn will also be redeemed, be a grey character once the cartoons conclude with his character (he may appear in Resistance), or with comics. Smile

@SW_Heroine_Journey - I would love for Thrawn to be redeemed too. lol. I don't even know him very well but I love this aspect of Star Wars and want to see every character redeemed (okay except for Palps and Snoke!).

Hi all, this is interesting - I posted this under the Solo film thread too.
https://www.starwars.com/news/solo-a-star-wars-story-exclusive-excerpt
So a military tribunal- I wonder if this was originally a scene in the film ? If so I wonder if they deleted it because we are gonna see a military tribunal in episode 9????!!
