Anyway so excited for this, should be absolutely incredible heart.gif heart.gif

It appears shooting has been delayed because there needs to be a considerable re-write in order to spend more time with the main characters from VII (due to their popularity) - i.e. Rey, Finn and Poe.
This begs 2 obvious questions -

Why weren't they going to be in it loads already, especially since Rey seems so integral to the story?

And why did JJ Abrams recently say the script was amazing only for re-writes to come into play.


Hopefully, part of the re-write is also down to the somewhat muted/negative reaction to Snoke. Maybe they decided to work on him a bit.

I thought it was coming out then anyway so this news hasn't affected me (aside from perhaps the need for potential rewrites like Severin states).

Yeah. I'm surprised it was originally as early as March 2017 anyway! This confirms that this will be even bigger in 2017 as it "becomes a tradition" for families to see around Christmas time etc...

I hope those reports about the rewrites aren't true though! How can they not have Rey as a vital part to the story originally? :\ So bizarre.

I wouldn't worry about rewrites, but then I also don't trust a word JJ has to say about any movie he's involved in anyway, so.

I'm not worried about it being pushed back at all, given the traditional wait between installments was 3 years, 2 is fine, especially with a spin-off coming every 'off' year anyway.

I wonder if they're giving Captain Fanta more than 2 minutes of screen-time in this one, after there were so many people talking about how she needed to be in more of it.

As far as I'm aware her role was always intended to be much larger in the 2nd film, and none of the 'rumour' websites are mentioning her

I just find it hilarious that Phasma was promoted as a 'strong, female character' and yet she was less than useless in TFA.

If Avatar 2 comes out before 2027 at this rate, I'll be impressed laugh.gif
I really think Avatar 2 may be the hardest box office to predict in ages! By the time it's released, everyone may be over Avatar and it could bomb or the movie is fantastic/looks fantastic and hits the highs of the box office of the 1st one!

I think it could bomb spectacularly. No shock they pushed it back.

I don't think the re-writes will be 'that' big. Maybe just a few tweeks here and there, but the central story will remain the same.

Exciting.

I don't get the fascination with Laura Dern, personally. But she's ok.

Yeah, she's quite good in the things I've seen her in, thinking perhaps she could be Rey's mum (we might see her in some flashbacks, she might even pick up an Oscar nom for it like in Wild basil.gif )

99 homes is a movie I really need to watch, is it good?

I remember when it looked like Michael Shannon might have got an Oscar nod at one point!
