    I'm really looking forward to this movie. So much potential. So many good things going on.

    I think this movie could be a real blast.

    I don't even mind it because Disney has proven they'll shell out the cash for a good product. Look at Marvel man. They have put in the work and given great products for that side of their investment.

    I'm happy they took over because it took the control away from Lucas and gave the universe enough cash to be great again.

    thats the thing everyone is saying oh they know they shell out money for this and that.. and thats only cause it MAKES them money... really where are they when it doesnt benefit them? they are a multi BILLION dollar conglomorate and they cant get veterans discount to disneyland.. they keep increasing their admission prices and prices of season passes.. the food prices are ridiculous.. and nobody seems to mind.. they really are taking over the world and not giving anything back.. but as long as we like the movies and the kids want us to buy the products its ok.. but thats for a different discussion.. i just think we need to open our eyes to this Disney Devil we are creating

    Yeah you're just a Disney hater man. :D

    But not without reason. I've got a couple connections that get me into that park when I want to go, but definitely they're a well oiled business machine. They make an absolute killing by catering to "dreams" of small kids and all but forcing parents to spend obscene amounts of money on their products.

    That being said, they use their money to provide a very good product as well. It's something like going to an expensive restaurant on a large scale. Disney is quickly becoming the Ruth's Chris Steakhouse of the entertainment world. No discounts, no love, but a great product.

    By the way I completely believe they should provide a veteran's discount, but I don't run the place...

    3-day park hopper for $132 is a huge discount. In fact it's 50% of the regular price.

    True, but those parks aren't nearly the same quality. I'm not saying you don't deserve a discount Darth, just saying it's more expensive by an almost exponential amount for Disneyland to let you in for free compared to those two parks.

    Discounts would be great though. I agree completely with that. Have you written any letters or anything?

    Good luck with that. Empire was a classic movie regardless of genre. It's widely considered the greatest sequel of all time.

    I agree real, I have confidence that Disney and JJ will make it entertaining like the marvel films, but being better than Empire which is on several top 20 lists is a bit presumptuous.

    I have a hard time imagining it being better than Avangers or Gardians of the Galaxy if we're looking at the bar set by modern action movies.
