    Who's grave is Luke standing at?

    It's a grave? You're sure?

    No, but it looked like a grave. Pile of rocks with headstone thing.

    The only picture I could find is a crappy cellphone grab on someone's livejournal. In the shot where you just see a robbed figure before you see his face, you could tell it was a grave.

    i think its for obi wan, but a memorial rather than a grave

    agreed, it felt like an obligatory Mark Hamill cameo. they could have left it better by just showing rey going somewhere. or no cliffhanger at all, like New Hope. everyone knows there's gonna be another movie. the cliffhanger is unnecessary.

    EDIT: maybe they should have asked me

    That's exactly why Luke was only in the final scene. As soon as he entered, it was going to be a continuation of the Skywalker saga, not the Rey/Finn/Poe/Ren saga they seem to be trying to build. The Luke timing thing was explicitly talked about by JJ, though.

    Pretty sure the novel already brought to light that Maz is force aware and uses her powers to collect force related (for lack of a better phrase) items including Luke's saber.

    Real talk. I'm just gonna say it - this is seriously one of the best film trailers of all time.

    It gets you pumped, it makes you emotional, and it makes you open your wallet. All of that, without spoiling a moment of the core story. Excitement, wonder, feels, all in one. It rules. I love Star Wars.

    Also, I need to go see this for a fourth time.

    Also, Han Solo's death in this film makes me unreasonably sad.

    Han Solo's death made me say "about freaking time". Not that I wanted him to die, but that kind of character kind of has to die at some point. He just plays too fast and loose all the time, eventually he's going to roll a natural 1 on a luck save.

    What if they took a page out of Blade Runner and Rey is some sort of Jedi genetic clone experiment with implanted memory of a family to simply keep her from going insane?

    just gonna leave this here.

    @fatcat - It gave me exactly what I wanted as a fan. It is a fan service film and I'm okay with that. I suppose you would have to love Star Wars to get it.

    I am a Star Wars fan, but it would probably be fair to say that I am more of a fan of the Old Republic/Drew Karpyshyn/Bioware Star Wars than I am of the Lucas/Disney Star Wars

    Saying you are not a fan of the Lucas Star Wars is kind of like saying you love Thanksgiving except for the Turkey and Pumpkin Pie.

    I dunno. Thanksgiving's a great holiday but turkey and pumpkin pie are gross foods.
