They must be come something more. A balance of both sides in harmony, not all light but not all dark either.

He means its time for the flawed ways of the Jedi to end.  My guess is that one of the books shown is the related to the Book of Wills that goes into how light and dark need to live in harmony.  I believe we are seeing Luke start a new type of "Jedi" that being the Grey Jedi that wields both light and dark powers.  I can only hope.

The dark side/Sith view to me has always been more truthful about what it is.  There is also nothing in that belief that it can't be used to do good.  I believe the Jedi always preached against compassion and attachment simply because too many ended up corrupted and not because it was inherently bad.  Just my view as a major Star Wars geek.

I really really hope they are actually taking it in the direction I think they are.

I felt like a kid again while I was watching the teaser trailer.  I can't wait for the first real trailer.

p.s. It also looks to me like they are following the episode 4-6 theme as it appears that the First Order is going to be kicking the Resistance's butt.

I've been playing the Fantasy Flight Star Wars RPG lately and the GM is steadfastly refusing the idea that I could learn powers from a Sith holocron and still walk a moral path. My character is obstinate in his belief that whatever the "Force" is, the only thing that's important is how you wield it.

I'm losing that battle, but maybe this movie will help me win the war  8)

Everytime I hear Mark say "Breathe" I keep expecting a little Joker laugh to follow. I don't know why...

This might make the Island of Mortis trilogy less polarizing to watch. I want to watch Rebels, which I hear has been creating the foundation for this stuff for the fans, but the channel restriction is limiting. Why aren't you on Netflix!?

As someone who works in the cable industry, I can tell you Disney is pretty tight fisted on the stuff they allow access to. Even their On Demand content requires a monthly subscription. However, I would highly recommend watching the show, it is pretty good.

You can watch the whole season 3 of Rebels on the disneyXD app or website.  You might need a cable sub though.  I highly recommend just getting the show on DVD or Blu-Ray.  It's one of my top 5 shows on TV right now.  Sabine is such a badass.

I really enjoy Rebels.   Was psyched to hear them call for General Syndulla in Rogue One during scene near hangar on Yavin 4.  Chopper and the Ghost are seen quickly as well.

The original story of Star Wars has been told. Insightful truth from George Lucas himself, about what Star Wars was about during the 40 Years of Star Wars Celebration GL himself explains:
Starting at 9:11 and going for about a minute or so.

It was written for 12 year olds and meant to be about coming into the real world... "things to pay attention to... friendships, honesty, trust, doing the right things, living on the Light Side and avoiding the Dark Side."

Now, obviously the SW Community has influenced a cultural shift with the whole addition of Grey, which seems to be the way Disney is going... for a more intrinsic and twisting story. Though I would warn about labeling the Grey as Jedi, or even Dark for that matter, for they would truly be both... yet neither at the same time.

So it should be an interesting story, but no longer the Star Wars we grew up and knew. It is no longer Lucas' envisionment, this is now Disney's Star Wars.

I'd agree with Torynn's assessment here. If for some reason I don't like the direction that VIII and IX bring, I am free to ignore it afterwards and just enjoy the classic trilogy as it is. While it's no longer canon, I still really enjoy the original Clone Wars micro series. It captured a lot of emotion with very little dialogue or hand-holding that I think is missing in a lot of media these days. It perfectly set up the Battle of Coruscant and for me still resonates as a great story. Revenge of the Sith, second only to The Two Towers opening, has one of my favorite film openings, despite some pitfalls in the rest of it (mainly in the middle).

Well if it's supposed to show us what life is like as we grow older I guess the natural human fear of change is coming about now

You do realize, I was implying that I recognize Mark more as the joker then as Luke purely off just his voice right?

We are a rather nerdy collective :P
