Star Wars Time Capsule 2014

Contributor Mary passed along a fun idea. What if we could save our thoughts or just an idea about The Force Awakens, hide it away, and come back to it next year? So we’ve created a time capsule with this thread, which will be hidden away at the end of New Year’s Day and reopened at the end of 2015 after we’ve seen the movie. You can respond here, or respond to the tweet or the Facebook page, about this post; it will all get compiled.

By the way, in our imaginations let’s pretend the time capsule resembles this good-looking piece of space junk. We’re talking the Falcon, not Bob Iger, who posed for this digital composition revealed by Forbes.

    With the Force awakening in Episode VII, my time capsule prediction is that we’ll see at least one “new” Force power that we haven’t witnessed before in the movies (or television), used by a Jedi (meaning, the light side, not dark side).

    I predict that The Force Awakens will fulfill the Fangirl dream of a standout female lead. My ranking of the candidates from most-to-least-likely: Daisy Ridley, Gwendoline Christie, or Lupita Nyong’o (because JJA could be messing with us). Because I started this, I’m making a second prediction: unhappily, it feels to me as if TFA will see the last of Han Solo. *Wails like a grieving Wookiee*

    Dear Me,
    Remember this time when we barely knew what this movie was about? We were excited and maybe a little hesitant. We were hoping for a female lead we could cheer for. We watched a fine team be assembled and then sat in the dark, holding our breath, waiting for the results.

    Patty Hammond: I hope that each of the women announced in the movie have big parts and not just bit parts

    Maria Selke: For Rey to be a major mover and shaker in the movie. Dare I even hope main protagonist?
