While the most famous plot twist in all of Star Wars is generally about Luke somewhat impossible by the events of Revenge of the Sith, in which its clear that and Return of the Jedi, all focused on one aspect of the love-triangle or another . Here's the Release Date of Every Upcoming 'Star Wars' Movie.
Abrams keeps re-iterating that his film is a return to the spirit of the original trilogy. You can watch them all here. These include not just the Special Edition CG overhauls, but changes made to the DVD and Blu-ray editions — and even some that were made while the films were still in theaters.
Some of the tweaks are, admittedly, improvements, like the straightening of perspective on some matte paintings or sound and color corrections.
Others, however, range from completely baffling to downright upsetting. Below are 15 changes made by George Lucas to his original Star Wars films that still drive us crazy. You almost have to admire the audacity: The original audience naturally assumed they were watching the beginning of the saga, and then Lucas threw the whole story into question with just five little words.
Did legions of fan go through the entire movie thinking that Aunt Beru and Luke Skywalker had the same uncle? Shortly after Luke and R2-D2 land on the swamp planet Dagobah, some kind of underwater creature snatches R2-D2, pulls him into the bog, then violently spits him out.
Without the helmet, he looks so broken, so vulnerable, so… eyebrow-less. Actually, Shaw did have eyebrows in the original versionbut for the DVD release of Jedi, his facial hair was digitally erased. The result is an expensive, pointless bit of retroactive manscaping. According to DVD Activethe change was made because Ben was supposed to be imitating a Krayt dragon, but his original call sounded more like a Dewback.
Never mind that we hear neither creature in the original versions of the films.
'Star Wars' writer reveals original vision for the sequels and his thoughts on 'The Last Jedi'
Did you ever wonder what Vader was thinking in that moment? And yet, George Lucas decided he had to spell it out for us in the Blu-ray edition. Watch the video below. But one of the most exciting things about the original Star Wars films is that the groundbreaking special effects were being invented as the films were made.
The newly-formed Industrial Light and Magic spent years building models, inventing cameras to shoot them, and occasionally blowing them up.
So when the Death Star is destroyed both timesthe explosions look and feel real, because they were created using footage from actual explosions. The Death Star explosion was superimposed. There are lots of rumours as to what he will do as well as his relationship to Rey — including an exciting theory that he will have enough power in the Force that he can crash a First Order Star Destroyer. And the late and already sorely missed Carrie Fisher will be back.
The movie had completed filming before her death on December 27, Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd is also coming back as Lieutenant Connix aka that Resistance member who stood around not doing anythingso she might even get a real role this time. As Harrison Ford was also in attendance at that premiere, it lends credence to new theories that, as Kylo Ren continues to be torn between loyalties to the Dark Side and his family, Han Solo will feature again - albeit in flashback.
But his name notably wasn't mentioned in Disney's official release in February confirming the start of filming. Story Continues Benicio del Toro will also be joining the cast, with reports pointing towards him being a villain.
‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ review roundup: Questions are answered, rules are broken
He was obviously bitten by the sci-fi adventure bug during Guardians of the Galaxy. Rumours have him pegged as a typical 'man in black' character, and one who — at least initially — is not seen as a bad guy by the other characters. Newcomer Kelly Marie Tran is on board, and will apparently have a lead role in the movie, and has been called 'the opposite of Dern's character'. Her storyline seems to be linked closely to Finn's.

Bottom actor Adrian Edmondson! There have also been some unsubstantiated rumours that Hayden Christensen will return as Anakin Skywalker, fulfilling the long-held wishes of no-one, ever.
You can probably bet on more surprise cameos.
Tom Hardy has unconvincing downplayed a rumour that he could show up. And could these familiar chaps have a part to play? Abrams himself will be sticking around as executive producer, but it seems that he is already regretting stepping down as director. His friend and Force Awakens actor Greg Grunberg you will probably know him best as psychic copper Matt Parkman in Heroes said that Abrams thought that Rian Johnson's script is "so good" that he's sorry not to be directing it.
Star Wars veteran and The Force Awakens co-write Lawrence Kasdan — who isn't working on Episode 8 — has said that the film is going to be "some weird thing"though it seems he meant it in a good way.
And, as with every other Star Wars film, at least parts will be filmed here in Blighty. Adam Driver has compared the shift from The Force Awakens to the difference between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back — although he was forced no pun intended to clarify that he wasn't saying that the film would necessarily match the darker tone of Episode 5.
Filming resumed on the Irish island of Skellig Michael, where the closing scene of The Force Awakens was shot — defying a Star Wars tradition by having one film lead directly into the next. Expect Rey to begin her training with Luke on the remote planet, possibly even in the art of double-lightsaber fighting. Hopefully it will go better than his own training on Dagobah — and if Luke ups and dies with no explanation like Yoda did, we'll be coming for you, Disney.
Rogue One cast predict Star Wars Episode 8's opening line Boyega has said that the new film will be "much darker"and more physically demanding for him, so he'll no doubt be out of his medical coma and back in action in short order. No mention so far of his ongoing fairytale romance with Poe Dameronalas.
Beyond that, we're somewhat in the dark, but we'll be ready for Kylo Ren to "complete his training" with Snoke as promised. And it looks like he might be leading the Knights of Ren against Rey and Luke, too. Johnson has hinted at a major role for Nyong'o's Maz Kanata. She has denied reports that filming had wrapped without her having shot her part.
