…Reveal Yet.

"Welcome back. We hope you all had fun celebrating the 40th anniversary of Star Wars last week. Did you commemorate it by re-watching A New Hope? Was there a Wookiee costume involved? No matter what, we hope it was grand. (If you didn't get enough 40th anniversary celebrations, please do delve into what did for the event.) Yet while fans were reflecting on the franchise's past glories, there were plenty of folks planning its future. Read on for all the best news and rumors about what's coming soon to the galaxy far, far way.

The Last Jedi Could Be the Most Shocking Star Wars Movie Yet
Source: A promotional poster for Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Probability of Accuracy: It depends how much one can rely on someone else's translation skills.
The Real Deal: So, apparently, the Japanese posters for Star Wars: The Last Jedi reveal that something very dramatic happens in the next installment of the Skywalker Saga. A "roughly" translated version of the promotional poster for the new movie teases "the most shocking truth in Star Wars history will soon be revealed." On the one hand, this shouldn't come as that much of a surprise since Last Jedi is routinely being compared to The Empire Strikes Back, home of the biggest reveal of the franchise to date. But on the other, how do you come up with a "shocking truth" that seems bigger than the one in Empire? Is this hyperbole, or is Last Jedi going to end up revealing something no one saw coming? Fans will have to wait until December to find out.

Shocking… shockING… SHOCKing… Nope. After 3+3+1+1=8 (Count the Ewoks? Yea/Nay) films I'm still looking for the first shock.

So, it is possible that some people who were shocked at something in a prior film may be even more shocked by something in this one…

And who said Hyperbole was dead?

War Monkey29 May 2017 8:01 p.m. PST

OMG! Jar Jar Binks is the Master Sith Lord!! huh?

LostPict Supporting Member of TMP30 May 2017 6:31 a.m. PST

War Monkey, that is not shocking. We have known about Jar Jar's Sith ways since Episode 1. :-)

awalesII30 May 2017 8:42 a.m. PST

I love how Tango01's bot doesn't know the end of one story and the start of the other :) You figure he's running google searches on common topics like star wars, keeps track of known urls, finds anything new, trims the first few blocks of texts and posts them?

I do know that there is little sense in the Tango01's post relative to other posts. That's well established :)

Seems time for an upgrade…

Do y'all know if Tango01 is a real person?

Captain Gideon30 May 2017 9:38 a.m. PST

War Monkey & LostPict you and other have claimed that Jar Jar Binks is this master sith lord but where's your EVIDENCE?

This is a bunch of BS and I'm getting sick and tired of hearing about it.

LostPict when you say "We have known about Jar Jar's sith ways since episode I so I ask you who is WE?

Ghostrunner30 May 2017 10:12 a.m. PST

This is a bunch of BS and I'm getting sick and tired of hearing about it.

Not telling anyone to shut up and stop posting, are you?

You know, there's a little button on your computer labelled 1/0. You might try that if things are too stressful here.

Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP30 May 2017 10:35 a.m. PST

I'm real… bip…bip…bip… real….bip… bip…bip…


Mobius30 May 2017 10:38 a.m. PST

The shocking truth lasts until the next release needs it to last. I'm more shocked by the PC nature of the SW world.

Ghostrunner30 May 2017 10:41 a.m. PST

Have you taken the Teuring Test lately, Tango?

Last time I took it I think I got a 'B-'….

Captain Gideon30 May 2017 11:14 a.m. PST

Ghostrunner you haven't shut up and you're still posting so I must be losing my touch,and you what you can do with your stressful comment.


Personal logo Coyotepunc and Hatshepsuut Supporting Member of TMP30 May 2017 11:26 a.m. PST

I have had many discussions with Tango01 via PM and he is as real as they get.

Re Star Wars, Lucas botched the end of Episode 3. The kids should not have been born and named, nor should we have seen Anakin become cyborg Vader (or, for that matter, seen Palpatine nane him Darth Vader.) That would have kept some surprises for the new generation watching them for the first time in numeric order (like my kids did; they always referred to Darth Vader as Anakin.)

Ghostrunner30 May 2017 11:37 a.m. PST

Ghostrunner you haven't shut up and you're still posting so I must be losing my touch,

So you ARE telling people to shut up and stop posting, just FAILING at it.

and you what you can do with your stressful comment.


I'm assuming that was meant as an insult of some kind…


Yes, he does… even had his own spinoff TV show at one point. I think the best Jar Jar ever did was Jar Jar toilet paper…

And now Gideon says…?

Captain Gideon30 May 2017 11:54 a.m. PST

Ghostrunner I've been told to shut up and stop posting about Jar Jar many times so I'm just doing what they did to me and it hasn't worked either way so why do you care?

Regarding that second thing well you can take it anyway you want,I wouldn't have said anything but you had to say that computer thing so it's your own fault.

If you're referring to Droids(which sucked BTW)it didn't didn't last long did it.

To me there's nothing good about that GP droid.

One other thing regarding Jar Jar being a sith master there's more proof about Napoleon being murdered than there is about Jar Jar being a sith master.

Now I've got better things to do now.

And now Ghostrunner says…?

awalesII30 May 2017 12:20 p.m. PST

Yellow card for Cpt Gideon. Bringing argument from one thread to another. Free kick from spot of foul.

Captain Gideon30 May 2017 2:07 p.m. PST

awalesII I'm curious as to what you're attempting to do are you trying to be funny or something else?

(Major Disaster) Inactive Member30 May 2017 3:26 p.m. PST

Captain Gideon, are you the Comic Book Guy?

It's a load of garbage LostPict so I take it that you believe everything you see on youtube or read online?

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP31 May 2017 5:25 a.m. PST


If I was not able to bring the good Captain to the Way of the Bird:
TMP link

You will certainly not be able to influence his attachment to Jar Jar.

Let it go.

Captain Gideon31 May 2017 6:00 a.m. PST

That song(if you can call it that)has no Bleeped texting meaning.

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP31 May 2017 8:51 a.m. PST

Yes,you made your feelings clear. Fair enough.

Nonetheless, I shall never relinquish my faith in the Bird!

In fact,give me that Old Time Birdin':

If it's good enough for the Ramones,the Cramps, and Peewee, it's good enough for me!

The Bird was,is,and evermore shall be, The Word. Amen.

PS: Consider this--if we eliminated everything without meaning from TMP,what would be left?

Think about it.

Captain Gideon31 May 2017 8:59 a.m. PST

All I can say is Bleeped text???

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP31 May 2017 9:03 a.m. PST

Well,that will limit communication a bit.

Ghostrunner31 May 2017 9:46 a.m. PST


Consider yourself warned about talking about irrelevancies by those who advocate in favor of Jar Jar Binks…

Seriously… think about THAT for a few minutes.

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP31 May 2017 9:52 a.m. PST

Thanks,Ghostrunner, I will do that.

Maybe if I listen to some calming music:

Ahh. . .

Captain Gideon31 May 2017 10:08 a.m. PST

So Ghostrunner you think that I'm irrelevant or something like that?

If that's the case then why in hell do you respond to my posts?

You can simply ignore my posts but no you have to interact don't you?

awalesII31 May 2017 1:33 p.m. PST

"awalesII I'm curious as to what you're attempting to do are you trying to be funny or something else?"

Something else :)

Captain Gideon31 May 2017 2:43 p.m. PST

And what might that be awales?

Bringing argument from one thread to another is not a new thing and I assume you said that because of me bringing up Napoleon right?

So why would you bring that up?

awalesII31 May 2017 4:23 p.m. PST

Bringing it down is depressing.

Dynaman878931 May 2017 5:13 p.m. PST

> War Monkey & LostPict you and other have claimed that Jar Jar Binks is this master sith lord but where's your EVIDENCE?

What kind of Master Sith Lord could he be if someone had evidence?

Captain Gideon31 May 2017 5:27 p.m. PST

Dynaman8789 do you have EVIDENCE or are you all talk with nothing to back it up?

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP31 May 2017 7:25 p.m. PST

I have evidence of. . .something. . .

Captain Gideon31 May 2017 9:02 p.m. PST

I highly doubt it has anything to do with the subject at hand.

Now if you'll excuse me I'll get back to some calming music of Johnny Horton's Sink the Bismarck to be followed up by some German & Japanese Military music which I fully enjoy.

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP01 Jun 2017 9:07 a.m. PST

I thought it contained some hidden messages.

Captain Gideon01 Jun 2017 9:34 a.m. PST

No Hafen you're mistaken.

Deuce03 Inactive Member01 Jun 2017 10:53 a.m. PST

"It's there that they'll meet Benicio Del Toro's unnamed "shady character," who has the unofficial name DJ, something Johnson says has "a reason" behind it."

Presumably DJ stands for "Darth Jar-Jar", thus confirming the theory.

LostPict Supporting Member of TMP01 Jun 2017 11:29 a.m. PST

Meesa fulla Midi-chlorians

I just realized that Qui-Gon probably unitentionally contaminated Anakin's blood sample with Gungan slobber and that is why the Midi-chlorian reading was off the charts.

Captain Gideon01 Jun 2017 11:49 a.m. PST

Deuce03 you truly have no idea what you're talking about do you???

And LostPict I don't know what you're talking about either but it sounds like BS.

awalesII01 Jun 2017 12:51 p.m. PST

I win, I win, I win!!! <twirking in my office>

Captain Gideon01 Jun 2017 1:19 p.m. PST

awalesII ???????

awalesII01 Jun 2017 5:07 p.m. PST

I don't win? I thought this was a game, last one to respond wins. No? Is there more meaning to any of this?

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP01 Jun 2017 5:35 p.m. PST

The meaning lies,as always, in the classics:

Marc the plastics fan Inactive Member02 Jun 2017 12:37 p.m. PST

Last one to respond? On TMP? With Jam Jar Stinks.

Ain't never gonna happen

But Gideon – it is just joshing. I know if we met we would both be happy chatting Star Wars stuff.


Part time gamer17 Jun 2017 12:25 p.m. PST

At the RISK of actually commenting on the Subject.
"The LAST Jedi", seriously? Is that the best our so called educated Entertainment world can come up with?

As the classic SW 'scrolling' intro of The Force Awakens rolled by, I read, '..the Jedi ..betrayed and all but wiped out.."

AGAIN!? I almost shut it down. My only thought: Thats it? Another "Anakin / Darth Vader" bit, thats all these guys could come up with??

I can see a highly Over paid, extremely UNimaginative writer jumps to his feet and shouts.
"Ive got it! Lets kill off All the Jedi.. but one."

It could have been worse (barely) they could've said:
"Everything you ever heard, seen or read in the SW Universe, 'was just a dream'.grin
