    That's the beauty of it. People do think that's too predictable, so they would expect something else and not that. And BLAM!

    Well, it's Disney, so who knows. The trailers so far look interesting, but they aren't exactly known for making good movies that aren't animated.

    Is "Ends with a cliffhanger" too obvious?

    No, that guy is Snape's son and Disney plans to spin off his storyline into a new Harry Potter series.

    I speculate that the local theatres will be full of 44 year old man children, same as last time. Went to see Phantom Menace on opening night, place was full to the brim with full on hardcore fans in Jedi robes with toy lightsabers. The opening text scrawl kicked off and the entire threatre suddenly turned into some sort of Coruscant rave with toy lightsabers all over the place. There's a love of the series and then there's a dangerous obsession, y'know? These guys weren't that far gone, but it's a slippery slope from Jedi rave in the cinema to actually defending the existence of Jar Jar Binks. Or claiming that the chemistry in Attack of the Clones was believable.

    Seriously though, I don't expect anything especially great out of it. Modern cinema doesn't take big risks, it plays it safe, only goes for what is guaranteed to make bank. We'll get a pretty generic plot with some flashy effects for the proles and that's about it. Go in expecting something good, not some legendary genre-defining masterpiece. You won't see amazing character development or a unique and thrilling story with twists you never saw coming. You'll likely be able to guess everything well in advance. That's the great catch-22 of broad market appeal, when you homogenize everything into the same bland inoffensive effects heavy stuff, nothing really stands out any more.

    Also, if there's not at least one shot of a dead Jar Jar Binks with the words 'I'm sorry, signed Lucas' in whatever written language is unique to the Star Wars universe in the background somewhere, or a cheeky Disney cameo or two in a cantina scene or something, I call wasted potential.

    Another bit of speculation: they retcon the Emperor's first name into something less silly.
