Ugh, we've been given 6 movies leading to Skywalker redemption. Kinda done with that. I'd like to see just good skywalker vs evil skywalker. And by good I mean Rey.

I don't care how the trailer looks, the last movie was so damn awful, I won't give this one a shot until it hits a streaming service I already pay for.

The Last Jedi has not aged well. That humor at the beginning, and the anachronism with the telephone jargon was just awful.

So I didn't catch this but read about it later....that fleet of star destroyers is NOT comprised of First Order star destroyers. They are vintage Empire star destroyers. I find this very interesting.

I just read something that said they are neither First Order nor Imperial star destroyers. They are a fleet of sith ships.

I really don't care, I just want more non-skywalker movies. They're the best part of star wars.

Rogue one is the best star wars movie. Fight me. Return of the Jedi is in the bottom half of all the movies. It's worse than the prequels. Gungans >>>>>> Ewoks.

I am full of unpopular opinions about star wars.

Every time I see people who say The Last Jedi permanently ruined the franchise and they will never care about Star Wars again, yet they are always the first to chime in about how much they don't care every time a new trailer or poster comes out:

They were also there for TFA, all of the prequels, various cartoons, video games, on and on. It’s staggering how much they like to suffer.

Ruined star wars is still better than all these comic redos and most movies coming out today anyway. We're just stuck in an era of shitty arts. Rogue one is great but it couldn't have been without ANH.

Rogue One was great, one of my favorite SW movies. I also thought that Solo was way underrated. It was very entertaining once you got over Alden not being Harrison Ford.

I've been waiting for decades for this film. It can literally be Lucas shitting on a Millennium Falcon and doing the Emperor's laugh, and I'll clap.

So after teasing Rey as a villainess in the last trailer, this one tries to drum up all the feels and shows nothing but her fight against evil. Somehow I doubt Disney would dare have the series end with Rey turning to the dark side.

And I'm not ashamed to admit I got chills when 3PO said his line about seeing you one last time.

I guess I'm outside the target market these days.

The trailer confirms several things that were in the leaked plot outline from a few months back.

[spoilers?]





The movies appear to be more about the saga of Palpatine than the saga of Skywalker.

Just so long as that dumb theory that Rey is one of many clones of Anakin isn't true. Because that makes zero sense because science.

Except that's not how clones work. Not at all. It's as silly as saying I cloned my dog and made 3 cats.

^^Not really. They can pull an 'X23'. She is a clone of Wolverine where the Y Chromosome was too damage (for "reasons") so they just duplicated his X Chromosome to replace it.

it's hollywood, man, nobody is gonna care if their cloning process isn't theoretically legit. None of their stuff is even remotely close to being scientifically accurate anyway.

You ever heard of time dilation? Even if "light speed" were possible in this galaxy, they wouldn't be able to zip and zap around the galaxy without observing significant lapses in time relative to their initial point of departure.

And they certainly wouldn't be able to fly the falcon in space like an F22 on a canyon run.

So, no pencil pusher is gonna reject that idea of cloning based on science, let's be real here. Our current society is as misinformed on science as they are about learning a second language. Nobody gives a shit.

That is not an "idea of cloning". Cloning is specifically making a genetically identical copy. Making a "female Anakin" would just be making a genetically engineered being, not a clone. I guess you could make one and then clone that one, but even in that case that being is in no way a female Anakin clone.

I give a shit because it bothers when people talk about cloning and have no goddamn clue what they are talking about.

^^ I'm venting. I really think that they should have kept Lucas involved in some sort of creative capacity.

^ What part of "nobody gives a shit" did you not understand? There is hardly anything in these films that is even remotely scientifically accurate. I really don't understand griping over cloning terminology when everything in these films is based on fantasy, not reality.

If you ever had any credibility (which you didn't) this would automatically strip you of all of it.

Why? The prequels were shitty because of his direction and reliance on the green screen. However, the story arc behind Anakin's turn to the dark side, and the overall downfall of the Jedi, was compelling.

What do we have for compelling, creative story lines in the JJ era? Nothing. Everything is more or less just lifted from the original films. The Rise of Skywalker will be no different.

They didn't have to involve Lucas, they just had to put in a little more time and think about what story they wanted to tell over a three movie arc instead of going into each movie with no idea of where they wanted to take the characters.

Just rewatched TFA, and I still think it was very entertaining. Sure it's a rehash of ANH, but (and it has been said many times before) maybe that's what we needed to grab a new generation of Star Wars fans. The Last Jedi seems to get a little worse with every rewatch. I think they can redeem the series with Rise of Skywalker, and I'm ok if they channel some of the energy ideas from Return, as long as they don't have Ewoks return.
