    "My father HAS it" instead of "My father HAD it"...intentional misdirection or hint that Anakin/Vader could return?

    I know a guy that's going over this frame by frame like the Zapruder film, looking for clues.

    I think that speaks more to the whole "even though someone dies, their force endures" theme that we saw at the end of Jedi where you saw ghosts of Anikin, Obi-Wan and Yoda.

    I've seen every Star Wars film since The Empire Strikes Back on opening day. Can't see any reason for the streak to stop.

    Buy the goods now if you want them. They will be short in the market. Walmart seems to have committed big time to this property.

    Walmart will be wall to wall Star Wars by the time of the release.

    Jeffery Katzenburg told a story at a meeting that I attended about how years ago Walmart would work hard to get meetings with studio execs in Hollywood to plan merchandise and DVD launches...and a lot of time the studios wouldn't find time for them.

    Then Dreamworks started working to merchandise their movies with Walmarts help.

    Now he said we (Hollywood) fly in to Arkansas and ask for their help planning releases of merchandise...even going so far as to move up or move back DVD and even some movie releases because it would work better with Walmart's Merchandising Calendar.

    At one point movies and their associated merchandise were done very haphazardly, but now it is a well oiled machine spreading across all retailers.

    Just noticed after be told, that the Vader doesn't say The Force Awakens like the others do. Oh well, I still think he may make an appearance in the movie or at least the new trilogy somewhere.

    The last official trailer hasn't been on YouTube a full 24 hours yet, and is already approaching 10 million views. (I account for 5 or 6 of those...it admittedly got me kind of geeked out.)
