    7b. Episode XIII probably centers around meeting Old Darth Sidious' daughter/son and Newer Darth Sidious's preoccupation with power/newly stolen Emperor title from Old Darth Sidious.

    7c. Episode XIV probably centers around finding/freeing Old Darth Sidious to revenge on Newer Darth Sidious.

    7d. Old Darth Sidious turns from father-in-law rescued by Hero/Heroine in Episode XIV, to sworn enemy of Hero/Heroine in Episode XV, so Hero/Heroine has two Dark-Side Lords to deal with in the last Episode.

    8b. Newer Darth Sidious doesn't kill Old Darth Sidious in order to save Hero/Heroine. That already happened in Episode VI. Old Darth Sidious is already dead before Hero/Heroine needed Newer Darth Sidious to sacrifice himself/herself out of love.

    8c. The real Hero/Heroine of Episode XV is actually Newer Darth Sidious, b/c without his/her love for Hero/Heroine, this invincible character would never have "fallen" from the throne, as he/she can't be beat...

    STAR WARS - Episodes VII-IX speculationss:

    The points below r just for your entertainment only (I don't claim that any of it will play out. And besides, it all depends on how closely Disney follows the source materials anyways)

    1. Story is based on Heaven Sword & Dragon Saber, or HSDS (1963) (see pages 6-7 of this thread for more info)

    2. There is no feminist agenda. In HSDS Kylo Ren is a girl and Rey is a guy. Disney felt compelled to change their genders b/c it doesn't look right for a guy to fight a girl. But in HSDS, the guy never beats up the girl, only defeats her w/o harming her...

    3. Rey doesn't lose an arm/hand. The only main chars who ever lost their hands in the entire STAR WARS saga will be Luke and Anakin Skywalker, period.

    4. Luke is not Rey's father but her godfather or mentor. Rey's parents aren't alive at the start of Episode VII. The "family" Rey is referring to is her godfather (ie. Luke).

    5. Episodes VII-IX might be the first trilogy where we see a main character having a harem. Finn will be part of Rey's "harem", but probably not the one she ends up with. Rey will have multiple ppl romantically interested her. Anyways, if any1 must know, here is the part where Rey (the guy) and her ultimate lover (the girl/probably a new character to be introduced in Episode VIII) has a high-level "Force-exchange" quarrel:

    6. Rey is a wandering highness of some Star System, exactly like Strider/Aragorn in LOTR. She'll reclaim her heritage in due time.

    7. Kylo doesn't die. In HSDS she is part of Rey's harem.

    8. Snoke becomes blinded by another character/circumstance (not of Rey's doing) in the end.

    VIDEO below (Swordsman 2013 adaptation):


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfHAN4DQmAc


    - One eyed man is Old Darth Sidious (he lost his eye in a scuffle with New Darth Sidious)

    - Empress figure is New [Invincible] Darth Sidious

    - New Darth Sidious disguises herself as a traveller on official business, meets Hero and falls for him, but doesn't end up with him in the end.

    - Hero initially loved another girl (in green) before meeting his future wife (Old Darth Sidious's daughter).

    - Western audiences no like female villains, esp. not a female Darth Sidious. Kylo Ren was supposed to be a female villain, but they changed her to a guy and the main protagonist to a girl...

    Kylo Ren's character was supposed to be a female villain (Zhou Zhiruo in Heaven Sword & Dragon Saber). But they changed her to a him and the main protagonist to a female...

    Kylo Ren (his hooded cloak makes him look just like a girl --- or to be exact, Zhou Zhiruo above with the long hair):

    $2 Billion box office figure (Episode VII) proved, it simply does NOT pay to modify the original formula. Evrything must be as close to the source as possible... and that includes both character appearance, their back stories, and main plot points/twists.

    More on the "minimal changes" seen in SW [in adapting ideas from the East]:


    Guo Jing (Return of the Condor Heroes 1961) / Qi-Gon Jinn (The Phantom Menace 1999):

    [​IMG]

    (They just flip the "u" in Guo upside down and move it behind the "o", and voila, a "new" SW character name...)

    Zhou Zhiruo's long hair becomes Kylo Ren's hood. Get it? And Kylo wears the mask not b/c he needs it, but b/c of a little nuance called "character adaptation" (ie. it masks his gender, if not for his voice)...


    Btw, it's good that a couple of ppl (other than myself) posted their pictorial interests in this thread. I hope to see more variety from others soon...

    Btw, if anyone asks where Star Wars was invented, just like papermaking/the compass/gunpowder/woodblock and movable type printing/etc, the correction answer is...

    Japan: (Shogun war armory)

    And now the future... 21st century Chinese invention just waiting for the West to clone/develop, just like gunpowder from way back then. Hypersonic glide vehicle capable of sinking an aircraft carrier with 1 direct hit... (and extremely hard to defend against d/t the hypersonic speed at which it travels towards its target):

    OMG, the game is nearly done and almost out. Really love the original game back in 1993, as it is my #1 vid. game (all platforms) of all time!

    (P.S.: I've been noticing a lot of my previous posts seem to have really bad grammar. That's b/c I was composing multiple posts and by the time I spotted them, the time to edit the post had already expired...)

    Star Fox is pretty good :D
    However, what about this girl?

    [​IMG]

    Cammy! I love her, more than anything else, in this world. If I saw some girl who was a clone of her - you know what would happen.
