    The trailer was genuinely bad. It really lacks any sense of identity.

    I don't dislike the MCU films because they're Marvel branded, I dislike them because they're bad films.

    I'm guessing its about Kylo Ren and his redemptive arc and he'll adopt the name Ben Skywalker by the end of the movie.

    Odd name for a title unless Skywalker is just going to be short for a light side force user. Curious if the emperor will play a part or be like that wierd force vision thing in TFA

    The Skywalker name will live on in Rey. Doesn't mean there's going to be any actual change to her parental status, it could and likely will simply just be a symbolic taking. Either something she does of her own accord or perhaps outright given by Luke and maybe even Anakin. Either way she'll be Rey Skywalker by movie's end if not at the beginning.

    Abrams didn't agree with this and had planned some sort of legacy for the character when he worked on TFA. Plus the idea of her being a Skywalker apparently dates back to Lucas and his emphasis on the grandchildren for the Sequel Trilogy. The only person who didn't get the message was Rian Johnson.

    I think I'll just watch "Return of the Jedi" and imagine better animations.
    Literally no title before now has had a character's name in it. I mean, if one doesn't like it fine but its not derivative. Unless you're talking about the Rise part but if that's what you consider derivative, all the titles are outside of TLJ because ALL of them except that refer to something rising up, basically.

    I'll watch pretty much anything live action Star Wars. The first two movies have been "meh". I don't expect this one to be any different. I hope the next series of movies moves away from the Skywalker family. It would be nice to see the world outside them for a change. So far, the best new movies have been the anthologies.
    Now listen to me, Clark! This great strength of yours--you've got to hide it from people or they'll be scared of you!

    i feel sorry for this generation. no story, no progress, what are they to care about?
    i hope sw9 will be a good movie, but imho it can´t be a good triology.

    and they advertise this as the final chapter? my old bones hurt hearing that
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    Interesting. But how do they face turn the guy that killed Han?
    Even if they pull out the Redemption Equals Death trope.

    IRRC, Vader/Anakin never killed anybody (in the movies anyway) that WASN'T cannon fodder.

    In fact, half the point of having survivors of the Jedi Purge is so that Vader can pad out his between films kill stats.

    Considering Force Awakens was basically a shiny derivative under Abrams, to see him return and basically do a derivative of "Return of the Jedi" as a title is not encouraging. Johnson pushed the envelope and gave us a good, fresh story. I don't want to see Abrams return and do another hokey rerun of a movie I've already seen.

    the title does nothing for me. the way they butchered everything, i just don´t care anymore. there are no skywalkers left. so i only wonder what stupid prank they´ ll pull this time. i´ll most likely find out when it goes to stream, cause i won´t stand in line for this crap

    After the bad taste of LJ, it's very hard to interested or excited about Episode 9. Like a few ppl, I've invested this much time, why not see how it all ends. Probably won't be opening night tho. I'll get around to seeing it. Ugh. I'm sorta glad that after this one Star Wars will take a hiatus, maybe get some better writers and actually have a well thought out plan. and a single director for a trilogy of movies would help too.


    Sidious laugh was epic tho. He's too evil and resourceful to stay dead too long LOL.

    did he? it was as much of an empire ripoff as TFA had been a NH ripoff. and you call that good, fresh? that makes me want to hit my head against something solid. what worries me the most, is that they advertise this as the final step in the saga. IX could be a great inbetween movie. but the climax of all the star wars movies? after the non existing storylines of VII and VIII?

    waiting for the miracle that won´t come
