That Star Wars Movie  
I've been wanting to post since I saw it, but wanted to be less emotional. Now it's been a few weeks, I'm giving it a try.

I am so angry!! I loved the movie, even with third generation of whiny Skywalker brat, and I'd gone in spoiler free, so felt totally sandbagged at what happened. They killed Han. I started to cry, and I didn't stop till the movie was over. I don't know where fandom hangs out these days, but all I heard from people was how awesome the movie was. Am I the only one who was/is upset? I remember how angry fandom was when they killed Richie, over 'Last Knight', so many other instances. I thought there'd be some reaction. Maybe I don't know where those places are, but I feel totally alone in this. I don't ever want to see the movie again, and I'm not sure I want to see the sequels. I wish Han hadn't even been in the movie if that was going to be the outcome. I was so excited, as I was watching, that this was the sequel I'd been waiting for for so many years. Boy, I feel stupid. If you loved the movie, that's fine, I just needed to vent. I've been bottling it up, and just had to finally let it out. Nin has a theory about Han not actually being dead, but I don't want to get my hopes up, because I, at this point, am coming to believe you can't go back. Star Wars was a huge part of my teenage/twenties, and I think that's all I get.

Yeah, not less emotional.

(I even did a private post testing the cut, so I didn't screw it up)

Haven't seen the movie, but I've been spoiled already....

Did you ever read the books? I was reading the books way back, but can't remember when I left off. In the books I remember Han and Leia having three kids, Jacen, Jacia and Anakin.

And Han is a wily bastard. I wouldn't put it past him to still be alive somehow.....

I have this wild theory on how to mash movie-verse and book verse.

Kylo is actually Han's son by someone else. When Han joined the rebels, the Empire took Kylo away from whomever was raising him.

So it's all these years later, and Kylo is upset, seeing his bio-dad having this cute, nice little family.

Anyhow.... I'm not sure I want to see the movie in the theaters. Maybe later when it hits DVD so I can have time to process Han's death. He was such a great character.....

butting in here to say that the most diappointing thing for me was that he was called Ben (Solo). Which I'm like... dude, Ben Skywalker, Luke and Mara's kid. But of course, there's no Mara Jade so that just is lame as lameness that is super lame.

Still... I was purely hoping he'd be called "Jacen!" when Han calls out his name and when he said "Ben!" I was like "are you fucking kidding me?"

Anyway... as someone who is a major SWEU / Expanded Universe / Legacy Books now... fan. It was a total slap in the face.

I can't believe I forgot about Luke and Mara Jade.

Sigh. Someone never read the books..... (Meaning the Disney scriptwriters.)

I used to read the books, but didn't keep up with them.

In my heart, Han's still alive.
