I honestly wonder what Hamill and Fisher made in comparison.

Edit: I mean actual numbers-wise.

Heh, at least until they cast somebody else to play a younger Han in the upcoming film featuring the character...

Fellow legacy actors Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher earned figures in the low seven-figure range, while padawans Ridley and Boyega earned between $100,000 and $300,000, according to the report.
Holy crap on a stick, Batman! That CAN'T be right! That's a basement bargain price for Disney.

One thing that I didn't mention was my extreme disappointment of Captain Phasma. I was expecting a level of badassery of the way fanboys THINK of Boba Fett, but she did NOTHING besides look cool!

I think those are just base salaries for the other casts. I betting they'll get a percentage of the film's gross, merchandise and future syndication revenues.

I also think it took that much money to mark Harrison Ford agree to reprise his role and make him promote the film, ala conventions and premieres. That guy hates doing conventions from what I understand.

Estimate is off by about 20(?) years or so .

One, the series is called "Star Wars" not "Star Peace and Harmony" or "Star Trek." I really did not want to see a rehash of the Prequels where there would be a new Galactic Senate and debates about trade routes. Where there was another Jedi Temple and everyone just sat around talking like they were in the Matrix 2&3.

Two, I would have thought the Extended Universe books would have provided the notion there's still remnants of the Empire still to fight.

Three, we know how Harrison Ford was reluctant to reprise his role.

Four, I think Star Wars fans all knew The Force Awakens was the film that was going to transition the characters of the original trilogy to this new one; a handing of the torch. Which is why the film was so familiar, yet different.

All that being said, if that one aspect is the biggest criticism of the film, I'm fine with that as it's not a criticism of the film itself but the ideology built up from personal imagination/fan fiction.

I heard and read that quite a few people have seen this film three times already. I'm planning on seeing at least two more times before it leaves theaters. However, I probably won't see it on IMAX again as tickets have pretty been sold out in the coming days and it's about 40 minutes from where I live.

/\ Just on your mention of the EU, you are correct, but since none of it was ever canon, I don't think fans would factor that into anything new that came about regarding films and tv shows.

Eh. I'm glad he did. It's pretty obvious why he turned down the eight film, so they could continue the old trilogies tradition of having a different director for each film. Mix it up basically!

Or more likely, he didn't want to commit the next 6-8 years of his life to Star Wars because Disney wants to put out an "Episode" every other year.

And he would have had to start preproduction on 8 before 7 was finished and it may have suffered for it.

I would post this in a non-TFA Star Wars thread, but we seem to have only this SW thread left.

So, here's the (in)famous Star Wars Holiday Special along with a riffed version and a satirical review:
