Article from Screenrant about Flying Stormtroopers
I disagree with a few things about Screenrants article about flying stormtroopers from October 11, 2020. I disagree with how this article was not only presented, but it did not really offer much information about flying stormtroopers.
The article in question can be found here: https://screenrant.com/star-wars-rise-skywalker-flying-stormtroopers-jetpacks-empire/
I think the author takes a bit too much time going on about how the movie “got it wrong” when Poe exclaimed that “They fly now?”. I think this may be a bit over thought, and the reason is because in such an expanded universe such as Star Wars I believe it would make sense that some of the rebels, such as Poe, wouldn’t know all the capabilities of the Empire…rather First Order. He seems surprised, but think about how he is just a pilot who may not be fully aware of the tactical capabilities of the stormtroopers. A good analogy would be how a modern day F-15 pilot would not be fully aware of the capabilities of Army tanks of the opposing side. Their area of expertise is jets/planes/ and in this case space fighters.
Conclusion and final thoughts
I do not believe this is as big a deal as what most people believe. I think putting this in actually shows a bit of realism if anything as Poe wouldn’t be fully aware of ground level tactical abilities of the Stormtroopers.
What are your thoughts on this?? Should the directer have even put this into the movie in the first place?
