It does to a point. Most people who suffer from epilepsy know they do and know what triggers seizures, so they don't need to be told (or maybe they prefer to be so they can make wise decisions?)

Those who are more severely disabled and rely on a caregiver don't usually get to make that choice and need an informed person to make it for them. Thus, the warning does serve a useful purpose beyond just CYA. However, I have seen at least one person react to the most basic and otherwise subtle change and we simply learned not to take him to any movies.

I'm guessing it's pointing to some sort of Sith Lightning sequence, where - wait for it - Palpatine is zapping Rey (because she won't join him) as Kylo stands by his side. Kylo eventually takes pity on Rey, realizes he's become a monster, yells "noooooooo", picks up Palpatine and throws him down a reactor shaft thingie, again, and killing himself in the process. On their way out, he'll ask Rey to help him take off his ultimately pointless emo/poser helmet (unlike Vader's, it provides no life support or enhanced sensory capabilities, so yeah...pointless and poser-y) so he can look on her with his own eyes.*

Because it rhymes.

Or...

Rey, Just Because™, is suddenly, out of nowhere, blessed with Force Lightning abilities herself, and proceeds to take on the entire First Order, Palpatine, Snoke's ghost and whoever else shows up (Maul, bounty hunters, Hutts, Jawas, Greedo's grandson, Dooku's side piece, grouchy bartenders, etc.), single-handedly. And the entire third act of the thing is just her zapping the sauce out of people for about 45 minutes straight.

I can see either one of those scenarios playing out...






*I swear, if they do anything remotely close to that, my eyes will roll completely out of my head and I'll just have to pick them up off the floor, get up and leave. Sadly, you really can't even say the above in a joking/haha way because, deep down, part of you knows there's a solid 50/50 shot that's what J.J. has come up with.

Hey, you forgot the big family reveal on where Rey came from. It's going to be like a gender reveal but with more lightning.

At this point, I can't imagine what they'll come up regarding Rey's lineage that isn't either a) the biggest "well, no kidding...the entire planet already assumed this in 2015" letdown in ever, OR b) the Stupidest, Most-Out-Of-Left-Field and Intelligence-Insulting 'Gotcha!' That Has Ever Occurred In Cinematic History™.

Again, with this bunch, I figure it's gotta be one of the two.

The obvious thing - that she's Han and Leia's daughter, sensibly accounting for her Force sensitivity and mechanical/piloting aptitude - apparently just made too much sense.

Or Luke and Leia's daughter. I mean, you're Force Twins and you never even thought about it?

If you start inserting lightsaber jokes, I'm locking this thread!

Aaaaaaaand back to the movie.

Or …

Maybe baby Yoda from The Mandalorian is Yoda's long lost offspring and will show up to avenge his father or grandfather or something and have a dueling lightning battle with Palpatine?

Hey, could happen.

Hmm … maybe I should just merge the two threads and something something something …

At this point, being the final outing and with the people involved (Abrams, Kennedy, etc.), I can wholeheartedly believe the "hey, could happen" stance. There's no telling what off-the-wall, out-of-nowhere approach they'll attempt with this thing.

If we get out of this movie without time travel, clones, dual-alternate timelines or universes, bad dreams, major fake-outs (Han IS alive - he survived the stab, the fall and the planet exploding! - and he throws Rey his blaster when she needs it most!!), I'll eat my hat.

I don't trust these people...I just don't

There was a Yoda species female on the council in the prequels. Maybe they were banging green uglies and we just haven't put the two together until now?

Please no. The Mando thread is staying on topic nicely. This thread is bound to go off on, ahem, tangents.

Well, all of those things you just mentioned could happen and still follow "canon" or "legends" or whatever Disney wants to call the old stuff.

I mean, my favorite all-time Star Wars character is Ahsoka Tano and the only reason she is "still around" is some time-travel/parallel universe thing.

So those weird ideas have already been inserted. I mean, time travel gives lazy story tellers a way to fix complex problems that should never have been problems. You killed off a popular character and now the fans are angry, so you want that character back? Time travel*! Or maybe you could just realize that you either need to keep the character around, or kill them off for permanently reasons!

I mean, just deal with your story telling already. Please don't Star Trek Star Wars! Time travel has long been established canon within the Star Trek universe, but it was only inserted into Star Wars within the halls of Star Wars Rebels to save an obviously outmatched Tano from the vastly superior Vader. She either should not have been written into the part, or she should have died at the hands of her master (just another reason to hate evil!). To use Time Travel™ is just a lazy way to save a very popular character lazy writer from his/her mistakes.

Yeah, please keep these threads separate. So far I've not had to hate The Mandalorian, and I'd prefer to confine/limit those particular thoughts and emotions to this thread. Favreau and Filoni seem to be in a different league, and I've yet to have the urge to choke anyone involved with the show. You know, the complete opposite of Episode IX.

Silly children. I'm not going to merge Teh Awesome with the, um, Wait-And-See-Wasteland, Episode Umpty-Million, Return of the Skywalker-Palpatine Love Child
