    I would hate to see a list of all the Star Wars product tie-ins out there in the world. I just picked up a sandwich at Subway the other day, and even they're doing tie-ins with collectors' cups. Who the hell believes that Disney didn't publicize this thing enough.

    If I see that damn Subway commercial one more time…..:realmad:, the list would be a long one, who knows how much $$$$$$$$ in they are bringing in from licensing/tie-ins/cross promotions etc….more than enough to pay for the cost of making the movie and it's direct promotion.

    I hear what you're saying and agree with your above posts.
    But they're welcome to my £10 theatre fee every year if the films are the calibre of TFA.
    I don't have to and don't subscribe to all the add ons.

    As a cable cutter, my exposure to the vast majority of such marketing (television) has been dramatically reduced. I've only noticed the absurd amount of product promotions (poster ads and fast food tie-ins) in the last month leading up to the movie's release. A good thing, as over exposure would likely have a negative effect on a cynic such as myself.

    I hope Lawrence Kasdan stays put for the other films. He's the "special sauce".

    Kasdan has written the script for the Han Solo movie with his son, but is not working on any of the others. Rian Johnson has written his own script for episode VIII.

    My understanding is that Abrams and Kasdan mapped out the general story arch for all three movies, so that future screenwriters at least have something to "hang their hats on." Makes sense - I can't imagine they left all those unanswered questions in Force Awakens without at least some idea of how things would play out in the overall scheme of things.

    Lucas did say that Star Wars was one big soap opera.

    Yeah, he has said a lot of things. And I agree it has many family drama aspects. But lets use some imagination.

    I hate when people speculate that Finn will be related to either Mace Windu or Lando. Just because he's black that doesn't mean that he has to be related to one of the other two prominent black characters in Star Wars. Stupid.

    Why not? Lando was a good character. And I'm sure Lando had his share of Twi'leks....
