    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    With the Sith back in some capacity, I'm kind of curious how it relates to the rule of two. Then again, it could just mean that the troopers/fleet whatever are merely servants of the Sith. The Galactic Empire, after all, was pretty much a "Sith Empire" more or less, it just didn't use that name. (Palpatine seems to have, for the most part, kept his Sith powers secret, although he was surrounded by of course Vader and the Inquisitors).

    Also we sort of have the concept of an "weaponized Threepio" already in the films....The Battle droid mashup in AOTC. Hopefully it's handled a lot better here.

    And Threepio looks to have a weapon-crazy Ewok as a sidekick looking at the new toys, too.

    A few notes from the toy reveals


    -Sith appears to have a Jet trooper variant too.

    -The orange X-wing is definetly Poe's.

    -The design of that Knight of Ren looks a bit like Maximus's Gladiator mask mixed with a bit of Doctor Doom.

    -Good look at the new Speeder bike. Has treads in the front, maybe if it needs to move without floating.

    -Wexley's back, with apparentally an A-wing this time.

    -The Falcon has the old dish style back? Maybe Lando wanted to make up for destroying it...

    There appears to be rumors that Wedge is coming back, possibly confirmed by Lawson's agent.

    FINALLY!

    He was supposed to be in TFA in Lor's scene, then it was Ackbar, then it became Lor.

    I don't even think they asked him to be in TLJ.

    Considering how Johnson unceremoniously whacked Ackbar, it's a very, very good thing Wedge wasn't in the last film.

    The ROS bridge comic just revealed that the salmon-colored Mon Calamari seen in recent publicity photos is Admiral Ackbar's son.

    from the preview, she forgot to mention that his father died during an attack led by her son.
    damn, the galaxy should be suspicious of this skywalker bunch.
    i think there have been several EU stories having leia dealing with the political fallout of being outed as vaderīs daughter.
    how would she explain that now her son is the new evil overlord?
    must be a pr nightmare.

    though it is smart that the comic preview briefly mentions the family angle

    Yeah, the Disney canon one is "Bloodlines". It's a pretty good book. In the original EU, nobody really seemed to mind that much (In fact, it's actually a major advantage in the Thrawn trilogy); but in the Disney EU she lost her political career (The connection was discovered by, and then revealed, by a First Order conspirator) and that led to her eventually creating the resistance. It also was probably another part in Ben's downfall.

    are you sure that wasnīt an issue in the old canon?
    canīt remember, but leia was a political target every 2nd book. i canīt believe that wasnīt used as a storyline in the past. and as you mention, her heritage was a factor since the zahn books

    I think it was a bit of an issue in the Black Fleet Crisis, but apart from that I don't think it was brought up as a huge deal.
