    Wooooooot:




    (T-hug brought this to my attention but he didn't start a thread about it so I'm stealing his thunder.)

    Well this is one giant middle finger to episode VIII, which in turn took a giant dump on Episode VII (severing plot threads and pissing all over the hooks, foreshadowing and hints laid out by Abrams in Force Awakens, derailing the entire new trilogy and sending it tumbling down a cliff). The teaser suggests the third film will try to bring the plot back on track and salvage what it can from the train wreck that was Last Jedi.

    So we have "rise of Skywalker" (Rey is Skywalker confirmed ;O; ), some grand vistas on interesting new planets (and some boring old ones *cough*desertplanet*cough*), the return of Kylo's mask, possibly the return of all the hinted-at crumbs that the second film dropped down the crapper; and of course the reassuring "nobody is ever really gone". Mark Hamill will return as a Force ghost because death never stopped a Jedi from interfering with everyone's business, but really this could mean anyone. Snoke? Palpatine? Jar Jar Binks? :ohnoes:

    The dark side clouds everything. Impossible to see the future is. I dare not hype, but maybe I dare... hope.

    As long as it's better than the prequels, I'm good.

    lol I am thankful they stopped making Star Wars movies back in the 80's... Seriously the new ones are worth watching one time each and then forgetting they exist lol

    that is one of the least interesting trailers I've seen for a star wars movie...
    I don't know, I guess I am just so underwhelmed following the last 2 episodes.
    I kind of liked the Last Jedi but it somehow felt like it ended the series, whatever comes in this next one feels like "that idiot broke everything in VIII now we have to fix everything in IX"

    I haven't seen part 8 yet, but I keep hearing that it's pretty bad. I also heard that the han solo movie was so-so. I thought episode 7 was meh, but rogue one was quite good.

    Since they're in the mood to kill off all the original characters in order to steer the story in a new direction that nobody wants, I bet Lando dies in this movie :glare:

    Rouge one was amazing . Solo -I'm not sure if it even had a plot LOL. 7 not bad I liked it . 8 not entirely bad other then the hide and seek endless crap.. love the fight at the end... I do hope 9 fixes the non-sense and has more to offer then frozen super girl and the cat and mouse junk.

    Despite honestly not liking anything Disney has done thus far, I am still going to watch this one. I am really just hoping I actually enjoy one of these movies for once and it's not just another retelling of the original 3 with more pandering.

    Last Jedi soured me on the whole franchise, so I’m pretty noped out for this one.

    Just get the Despecialized version of the original Trilogy, or read the books, then read the old EU, and never ever ever ever watch the prequels, and especially not the Clone Wars, and certainly any of this Disney train wreck. Though if you must wander into prequel territory, then The Republic Commando books, and Dark Horse comics Dark Times series and everything connected with those (minus the Clone Wars comics) is a must!

    This shit better be good after the awful last one. The Force Awakens made me think the series is saved and then, well, y'know what happened.

    That being said, it would be funny if they brought back Jar Jar Binks. But maybe only to have him get killed as part of the plot.

    Haha, I'd honestly rather have his status unconfirmed than see him ever again. Unless he gets killed at the very beginning.

    You gotta admit it would be pretty funny to have him return just to die though. I think that would make a lot of fans happy knowing that Jar Jar is no longer among the living in the Star Wars world, tormenting anyone he comes in contact with on a daily basis.

    I agree, but only for 10 seconds. And don't make him talk dammit.

    On a side note, I really think they should make a Star Wars movie in the Old Republic era (which is my favorite SW era). And maybe make references to the KotOR games.

    He has to talk right before he gets killed, just to drive the point home. Otherwise, he can shut up.
