I needed to name them up and say, “Hey, this is what I’m thinking. This is when you live. This is when you die. This is how many episodes you’re in.” I imply, the physique rely is excessive all through, however individuals dwell. It’s a revolution. It’s a really intense time frame. People are doing very harmful issues. Some individuals dwell and a few individuals don’t. How do we all know who lives or dies on the finish from the earlier Star Wars? You wouldn’t know. I imply, there’s individuals buried in Yavin. Who is aware of who’s there.
