  • -Today we're talking about the newest Star Wars movie. -May the force be with you. Let's talk about that vid.

  • -Hey you're watching VidTalk on VoiceTube TV. I'm JR, -I'm Ray.

  • And the reason you're here watching VidTalk tonight is because you didn't get tickets for the latest Star Wars movie didn't you?

  • -Which premiers tonight. -That is right. And the only reason why we're here is because we have to do this show, reluctantly.

  • Just kidding we love to be with you guys.

  • -The newest movie it's called, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. -Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

  • But before we go into that let me lay out some of the foundation for you because Star Wars, it is a huge franchise.

  • Right now we have two trilogies, that means namely six episodes.

  • And all the stories start a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away.

  • That is the classic opening line.

  • Right so this series, it's kinda like a sci-fi futuristic concept where we have the good and the evil being the Jedi and the Sith.

  • And all the story revolves around one main character called Anakin Skywalker who was raised to be a hero, raised to be a Jedi.

  • But then fell and became a Sith, namely the famous Darth Vader.

  • -I find your lack of faith disturbing. -Yeah that's one of his classic lines.

  • And this is one of his classic moves. The death choke.

  • Oh I enjoyed that.

  • I find your lack of faith disturbing.

  • So this new episode and it's a sequel. It picks up 30 years after Darth Vader was defeated and what's interesting...

  • -Hey it's time to wake up. You can revive now. You actually fell asleep. -No I did not. -Yes you did. You fell asleep at work. I'm gonna tell our boss!

  • What's fun about this instalment is, they're bringing back the original cast.

  • And you probably know by now, they've brought back Harrison Ford who's playing Han Solo.

  • And you also get to see Chewbacca in the trailer. You don't see a trace of him aging at all.

  • -How do Wookies age anyways? -They lose hair? -They get bald spots? That's interesting.

  • We don't know. We don't get to see it in the trailer. You'll have to find out yourself.

  • They've also brought back Princess Leia, who's played by Carrie Fisher in 1977.

  • Also Mark Hamill who played Luke Skywalker, they're all back in this instalment.

  • Which is really exciting and what's interesting is, in the story, they're actually supposed to be 30 years older.

  • -But that's also in real life, true. -In real life it's true cos the first Star Wars movie, A New Hope was filmed in 1977, so they're actually thirty years older.

  • They can save some budget in the aging make up department, it's their actual age. They're actually that old.

  • You can definitely see Harrison Ford getting a little bit up there.

  • But anyways in this new instalment they've also got a new actress. It's a girl this time. And her name is Rey.

  • -Ray? I'm a boy. -No, I wouldn't picture you with a lightsaber.

  • So it is a girl, her name is Rey and it is spelled Rey instead of your Ray.

  • So Rey she is a female human scavenger, her parents are unknown, she was left on a junkyard planet when she was really young,

  • and all we know is this, in this new movie she is going to be the leading character

  • and she is going to somehow bring the balance to the good and evil, the force.

  • So is she like a Jedi? Cos we don't get to see it in the trailer.

  • Right, we don't see her wielding a lightsaber, but all we know is this: some things are bound to go down around her.

  • You probably need to get tickets to find out yourself.

  • And there's a new villain in this episode too. You get to see it in the trailer, it's this villain looking at what seems to be

  • the remains of Darth Vader's mask, and he says "I will finish what you started".

  • -Oh the dark side is coming back. -The dark side is back!

  • -No, it's not working this time. -I've lost it! Dang. Anyways.

  • Let's just refresh your memory of the original trilogy, way back in time, and we're gonna play a little game right here called Fact or Fake.

  • I wanna challenge Ray to this too, so let's do this. Fact or Fake.

  • Okay welcome to our little part of the show, which is called Fact or Fake, I'm gonna challenge Ray with a series of questions on Star Wars.

  • And if you're a diehard fan of Star Wars, I doubt you're gonna get these questions right. Cos this is really hard!

  • -It's really tricky? -Anyways, it's always fifty fifty right? -Right so I'm just gonna go with chance. -Either right or wrong.

  • Okay so here it goes, I've got five questions and you can play along too, if you win, we don't have a prize for you.

  • -Alright question number one, are you ready for this. -Yup.

  • Do you know the movie E.T.? Extraterrestrial? You probably know that movie too.

  • E.T.'s alien species were shown in parts of the Star Wars movies.

  • -Like in a cameo? -Yeah like a cameo.

  • Do you have any other information, like which episode, how many times did he appear.

  • Well of course, it's a cameo so it's not much, not many times, but I'm not gonna tell you.

  • -There's a lot of different extraterrestrial species in Star Wars. -Yeah there's the Wookies, there's all kinds of alien species.

  • -I don't know, true? -True? -Yeah I guess. -You sure? Don't wanna change your answer?

  • -Yeah true, whatever. -The force is strong in this one. You got it right!

  • -It's really inside... -E.T. actually did appear in Star Wars. They made a cameo, it's actually in Episode one, The Phantom Menace.

  • And their species actually has a name, they're called Asogians.

  • -That's a fun fact. -Yeah that's a really fun fact.

  • Dang you got that right, so one point for Ray. Dang I hate that. It's okay we got four more to go, still has a long journey ahead.

  • Question number two, you know Chewbacca, Han Solo's friend, hairy.

  • Chewbacca's voice was voiced by Seth Rogan.

  • -Who's Seth Rogan? -The Green Hornet star.

  • -Oh, Seth Rogan. -He played with Jay Chou. Green Hornet? What is that again? -The Green Hornet.

  • -But I thought Chewbacca's voice was like a mumbled like bwrbwrbwr. -Erghrghrghrgh. Is that how you do it?

  • And it's voiced by Seth Rogan? Would they have Seth Rogan voice such a insignificant, well he's not insignificant but...

  • -No Chewbacca is really a very important character. -It's a vital role but... I don't know, true?

  • -Sounds realistic to me. -Seth Rogan can do the Erghrghrghrgh, okay. -I have no idea, true!

  • -You don't wanna change your answer? The answer is, wrong! -Oh, it's fake.

  • -Who is it? -I made that up. I feel so proud now. -I don't know I have no idea.

  • Here's the fact: Chewbacca's voice is a mix of bears, walruses, lions, badgers, and other dying animals.

  • -Dying animals? -So actually Chewbacca is dying. -Every time he speaks, he's dying.

  • -Dying animals, that's kind of weird! -How would they record it too! Did they have to kill one and then record their voice?

  • -Kill a walrus, wargharghargh. -That is a mystery. -That's actually funny.

  • -So one for me one for JR. -Yeah!

  • Question number three. This is about Master Yoda. The force is strong in this one.

  • -Yoda was originally set to be played by a monkey. -A monkey? Wait set to be played. So is it actually a monkey in the film?

  • No he was originally set to be played by a monkey but in the end they forsook that plan.

  • But the monkey's stature would be around Yoda' stature, and he did make some jumbly fumbly moves in the movie.

  • -Sure about this one, I am not. That's the way Yoda speaks right? -Sure about this one, I am not.

  • Whatever, fact. I'm just gonna go with fact for every single question because I have no idea.

  • How about you guys? Fact or fake? Monkey playing Yoda. Wouldn't that be blasphemy?

  • We're not even sure what Yoda is. What kind of species?

  • Right that is actually true, cos in the movie, they never mention about his species.

  • -Yeah what is he? -He may be the last one of his species. He's near extinct. -A deformed, mutated monkey.

  • -Well the answer is right! -Oh nice! -No!

  • In fact, George Lucas originally planned for Yoda to be played by an adorable monkey.

  • -Apparently monkeys are too hard to control, so... -Yeah technical difficulties made him...

  • And he had to do those lightsaber fighting scenes, how would he do that?

  • -Give him a banana for it instead of a lightsaber. -(monkey noises).

  • -It is a fact! -Yeah two for me! -Two for you we got two more questions to go. I still have a chance of reversing this.

  • Hopefully, I'm keeping my fingers crossed. God bless me.

  • Question number four. While filming lightsaber fight scenes. Ewin McGregor, who played Obiwan Kenobi in his early ages.

  • -He would get so carried away making his own sound of the lightsaber. -Fact! That sounds so true.

  • Well hear out the question though, it sounded so realistic that they actually had him do the special effect afterwards and mixed it up for production.

  • That is hilarious. Wait hold on, wouldn't his lips show if he's doing the lightsaber scenes and his lips are synced with the sound,

  • -Wouldn't it be weird? -Yeah, but that's what it says here so, fact or fake?

  • -They would ask him to come into the studio to do those special... -But that's post production.

  • -I'm gonna stick with my plan today, just fact. -You're gonna go with all fact? -Just fact yeah.

  • -But it does sound true to you right? -That sounds true to me yeah.

  • But it's fake. Yeah!

  • -You're really good at coming up with these really realistic... -(singing) -It's now 2 to 2 tied.

  • So the truth is, it's actually based on a truth, I just twisted it. The truth is he would really get so carried away making those sound effects.

  • So the production team would have to take it off, they had to cut it out. Every time.

  • -Wouldn't his lips show though? -I don't know how he does it. -He should have like a stern face when he's fighting.

  • -Really subtle, like holding it back. -I can picture the production team "Damn you Ewin! Stop making those noises!"

  • They had to cut out a lot of usable footage because his lips were showing. That is crazy.

  • -That's a fun trivia. -Yeah, fun trivia. -Yeah but I got you.

  • -So it's 2 to 2! -That' s a very close game. Down to the last question. -So this is the final showdown. I'm gonna totally beat you in this last question.

  • Cos this is really hard. Question number five. Yoda has three toes.

  • Yoda has three toes. That is a very interesting question, who would look at his toes? Who on earth...

  • But here is a good clue I just thought of. So we have matching fingers to toes, so we have five fingers and five toes.

  • I would think, I would assume that Yoda has matching toes to his fingers.

  • But you gotta consider the fact that we're humans, they're aliens.

  • That is true, but according to this logic, I remember Yoda having four fingers. Like this.

  • -May the force be with you. -So I'm gonna say... -The force is strong in this one.

  • You said what three toes? I'm gonna say fact, this is not. -Fact this is not? -So fake!

  • -You sure. You don't wanna change your answer? -No I think he has four toes, matching his fingers.

  • -So the true answer is... do we need a punishment for this? -I don't know, let's hear the answer for this first and then decide.

  • The answer is, depending on what movie you're watching, Yoda has different number of toes.

  • That is a trick question! What! I'm right though. I'm still right though!

  • -So he has four toes? -He had... well okay. The answer is, in the Phantom Menace, which is the first episode, Yoda had three toes.

  • But in the original trilogy, in the Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, The Revenge of the Sith, he had four toes.

  • Okay but according to the ratio though, one to three right? He's more likely to be four-toed. It's more orthodox.

  • -It's like a mystery... -Let's just call it a tie. -Yeah let's just call it a tie. -No one gets punished.

  • -But if you lost to our game, punish yourself at home. -Send us a movie ticket. -Or a clip of your punishment.

  • -That's a fun game. -Okay anyways, that's a tie for today that was really fun. I stayed up all night coming up with these questions just to beat you.

  • Anyways I hope you guys get to see the movie in the theaters, once again it's called "The Force Awakens".

  • And now it's time for our challenge of the week! Watch this clip, it's the trailer, and we'll come back with our challenge.

  • Who are you?

  • I'm no one.

  • I was raised to do one thing.

  • But I've got nothing to fight for.

  • Nothing will stand in our way.

  • I will finish what you started.

  • The dark side, the Jedi, they're real.

  • The force, it's calling to you.

  • Welcome to the Weekly Challenge section of VidTalk. Now we've shown you the trailer it's very exciting isn't it.

  • -Oh it gets you all pumped up. -It's epic. And we are going to look at one particular sentence and have you make a sentence out of it.

  • And this phrase we're looking at today is: Nothing will stand in our way. I will finish what you started.

  • We're trying to look at the phrase "stand in someone's way" right here.

  • -So what does that mean JR? -Well it could go either physically or metaphorically.

  • So physically if someone is standing in your way, like a good dog shouldn't block people.

  • -Hey get out of my way! -It's like someone who's really fat, overweight. He's in the pavement.

  • Well in that case it's "Hey either lose some weight or get outta my way!" Don't say that, it's cruel.

  • I have these cruel things in my mind. I'm subjected to the dark side now!

  • You're subjected to the dark side, I'm a representative of the light side, but I'm laughing at your jokes.

  • But anyways, physically it can be someone's blocking you.

  • But metaphorically, it could mean that someone is stopping you from doing something. Get out of my way!

  • So I can say, I wanted to lose weight, but McDonalds is standing in my way.

  • -Doesn't that always happen? -Yeah, candy is standing in my way, cakes are standing in my way.

  • -Just by saying that you're gonna offend a lot of people out there cos you're skinny. -I don't mean any offense.

  • So try to make a sentence with that and leave it in the comment section down below and you can also tell us how excited you are for the new movie.

  • That is right, leave your comments below and we will come back with your comments next week.

  • -And we have one final sentence. -Are we gonna lose our jobs? One final sentence right here.
