The fact Lando wasn't casing and/or running the casino on Canto is a miscarriage of justice.Lando should be in the film and he should be a big part of the film. And he should be pretty ticked off about losing his friend Han and want some payback. (You know, how Luke should have been since he's such a flawed Jedi and all.)
Frankly, I was sure after they send out that call for help that Lando would respond. I think they missed an opportunity to at least name drop the character.
I don't think JJ knows how to not have fun ! can't wait to see what he does with the next film .I said it was a fun interview. JJ seems to be having fun.
Mon Mothma had to have 10-20 years on Leia. If Leia was 60 for TLJ, that'd make MM nearly 70-80. Not sure that'd work out.Leia's absence in Episode 9 would be perfectly filled by Mon Mothma in my opinion.
She was not only a central commanding figure in the Rebellion but has had a long personal connection with Leia so she should really be a perfect fit.
If Mon Mothma is still alive somewhere in the galaxy there's no way she wouldn't be prepared step up when the Resistance needs her, in fact it would have made more sense for Holdo to have been Mon Mothma, although if that had been the case we'd have lost another OT character..
JJ, get on the phone to Caroline Blakiston!
This approach to your fanbase worked wonders for ghostbustersJJ puts men who hate women in TLJ in their place....which is alone.
