Has this gotten my money? Not yet. I plan to watch the Darths and Droids version of this movie first.
Now, I'd like to discuss two things that were mentioned in Reddit. I'm not asking for spoilers, I just want to open up some wild mass guessing.
First, what is the likelyhood that episode 8 will reveal that the guy whose name translates to a type of fish will turn out to be Sith-lord Binks, having stayed in the background since Palpatine double-crossed him way back in episode 3 by promoting Doku instead of him.
Second, how likely is it that Luke -- and yes, I saw while skimming through that he is missing (or otherwise out of the way) at the start of the movie will turn out to have turned dark at the end of 6 (after all, Yoda made a prophecy about him, etc. -- all the pieces are there, he could just have been acting "good" with the goal of Father+Son ruling the galaxy ... but darn it, daddy died. Hmm, maybe Luke + Binks as episode 8 lords?)
Yea, I know, but I said: Wild mass guessing.
(I think Binks as Sithlord would make a great plotline; I don't know if that's what will happen. Luke having turned bad at the end of 6, and hiding it from those near him at first, only to get away to found his own Evil Inc.? Until I found out that he starts this movie off in hiding, I didn't think that was possible. Err, did I just say "No, that's impossble"?)
