Pink? Seriously you think the Force Awkens rippes stuff off and this one didn't? You have got to be frick kidding me.

There were a few concept rip offs in this one but not even remotely close to Force Awakens. Force Awakens was practically a reboot of New Hope.


Seriously? The beginning of the movie is the end of IV and VI, the end of the movie is the beginning of V, the Vegas planet is tatoonie gussied up.

Way to post spoilers.. .

Basically what you are saying is they are no longer allowed to have space battles or planet surface battles because if they do, they are just ripping off previous episodes. And you think the Monte Carlo (way better analogy than Vegas) place is even a tiny fraction closer to Tatooine than Maz's place in TFA? That was literally cantina full of weird creatures, exactly like New Hope. The new place is significantly more... human.

Those aren't spoilers.

It is is the way the space and ground battles were portrayed that was ripped off

Alright, so if TFA was 85% ripped off from previous episodes, TLJ was... maybe 40%.
