Do they have really big, chunky porgs called "slammers"?

Do...do you honestly believe that Star Wars has ever been anything other than a vehicle for making money?  Lucas was a pioneer in movie merchandising.  Every single film, TV show, and holiday special came into being with the sole purpose of making money*.

*I'm pretty sure Rian Johnson thought he was making a "film" rather than a "movie" and wanted to tell an actual story with Rogue One, but the only reason Rogue One even got the green light was $$$.

I created this alt just for this thread: Quasar: Prepare to $quee at the baby porg$ which truly contribute $o much to the $tory and are included for ab$olutely no other purpo$e.

Well, the purpose of all movies and modern entertainment media is to make money. That's the nature of the Beast. That's why so much dross gets out there, low risk.

I totally agree that Lucas was a genius at merchandising. 7 year old me really appreciated that about him, cuz I have a lot of awesome toys. Friend of mine had the Millennium Falcon, and a good X-Wing, to which I was always very jealous. Even now, they released a bunch of small skill Star Wars ships, and my wife bought me a ton of them for Christmas one year.

So maybe the merchandising isn't all bad. However, I am very pleased that Lucas is no longer involved with the series. A lot of people complained about the force awakens, but I think if you just relax and enjoy it it's a good film.

I just peeked at that trailer for the new film, and I have to admit it left me a little excited, even though I don't usually get hyped up about these things anymore. Maybe we'll go see it on opening night again. There's a little theater nearby that was half empty for opening night of the force awakens.

I'd trade these useless porgs for a flashback that shows Jar Jar's brutal murder by Sarlacc.

I'll only be happy if they're murderous sociopathic cannibals that shiat out midichlorians.

ZOMG I WILL TOTALLY SQUEE AT THIS THING WHICH IS TOTALLY NOT A CHRISTMAS TOY PROMOTION

Don't worry, once the porgrom is complete the Empire will be free of these insipid vermin.

I will never get over how mad people are getting about the Porgs.

Now if you'll excuse me Imma be a big ol farkin nerd here; in terms of Star Wars as a story, it kind of always made sense to me that Chewbacca would die before Han Solo. Sucked when it happened in the books but it makes sense. Chewie's pretty much defined by his Life Debt and as TFA let on, the fact that he basically failed to honor it (I almost thought they'd go as far as having him bring down half of the Starkiller compound on top of himself in uncontrollable rage and grief when Han died) is going to put him into a deep goddamned depression. He's pretty much going to end up with an emotional support Porg and I'm fine with that. It's going to be bad enough when he encounters Luke for the first time; I'm half expecting him to try and farking throttle him for breaking up the Party.

/I actually don't know how Chewie will work alone as a character; Han's always kinda been his translator and sounding board
//I would have told you dying "with" Han as I said above would have been the correct way for him to go

Do I detect a faint whiff of Ewoks?  I still remember a comment Harrison Ford made in an interview in the old print edition of  Premiermagazine years ago.  The journalist asked him a question about  Return of the Jedi,and Ford said, "Was that the one with the F(arking) Teddy Bears?"

True story, Mel Brooks asked Lucas for ILM's help w/ Spaceballs. Lucas agreed on one condition: absolutely NO Spaceballs merch, b/c it would "confuse" people about Star Wars merch. So Mel wrote in that scene as a kind of "soft" fark you to George. I always wondered why all these years later, I've never seen a Yogurt doll anywhere.
