How do?

Seems we can expect the first trailer for the final part of the third trilogy at some point tonight, as it's debuting at Star Wars Celebration.

I'm rubbish at working out international time, so don't ask exactly when!

One imagines we'll also get it's full title. Let the froth begin!

Quite possibly.

I mean, I'm still gonna go see it. Midnight showing. Because of course I am.

But for others? I get it.

Apparently Rian Johnson stated that he'd be ok if JJ retcons some of his Last Jedi decisions.
I kinda hope he does (like Rey's parents actually being someone and the "nobody" business was a lie either told by Kylo or shown to Kylo so he believes it but it's not true)

All the specific things I think people hated about TLJ can be categorized as deviating from what JJ had set up in TFA. "Subverting expectations" only works when the payoff is worth it. There wasn't a good enough payoff in TLJ, but if there is in EpIX, than I can let myself like TLJ (which I truly want to do)

Having said that, there is 1 thing I will be HIGHLY disappointed with if it doesn't appear in EpX. Rey needs a Light-Staff. It just makes sense for so many reasons:
A) She uses a staff primarily on Jakku, so she is familiar with the fighting style (presumably)

B) The set up is there for Rey to "forge" her own lightsaber from the bits of the old Skywalker one. What better way to close the Skywalker saga that remaking the weapon into something new. Preferable Blue on one blade, Green on the other
It would also show that Rey is not like the Skywalkers before her, but does share characteristics

C) Toy sales. Darth Mauls double saber is such an iconic weapon and sold tons of toys. Heck, a piece of that very saber is used in Rey's staff from TFA. Foreshadowing much?
Imagine how well a "good-guys" double bladed Light-Staff would sell.

It would make sense if Rey's staff was a discarded/broken Lightsaber Pike, it certainly looks like one.

Space battles in Star Wars have been a bit gimped post last Jedi.

I'll never understand why Disney didn't just plan out a draft from the beginning. It wouldn't have been difficult. Plenty of amazing and dedicated writers could have written better arcs for the new trilogy in an afternoon.

When your objective is not to write a good story but to deliberately subvert expectations - you get garbage.

I get the feeling the ENTIRE franchise is riding on this movie, if its good then it will bring back a lot of fans, if its as bad as TLJ I think a full reboot with be the only thing that saves star wars with a complete change in leadership and direction from the top down, Disney did not buy star wars for it to be driven into the ground one movie at a time.

I just realized that this Trailer (which is more likely to be a "teaser" really) is probably going to play before Avengers: Endgame.
So aside from that movie itself, the Previews and End Credits may even be worth price of admission alone. Admittedly, though I see movies on the cheap at a local Theater, so YMMV

What do you guys think of the leaked poster photo?

Huh, I guess we'll finally see the other Knights of Ren in action? Two movies too late but I guess better than never.

But yeah, this is pretty much the lynchpin movie that will make or break future SW spin off movies. They lost a lot if goodwill with TLJ.

They bought it to make money. It's already paid for itself. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/10/30/six-years-after-buying-lucasfilm-disney-has-recouped-its-investment.html

That is just the box office too. All the merc and stuff. They are making tons of money. Disney and GW are actually similar in this sense. Failing their way into massive profits.

I still remember when Revenge of the Sith was about to be released and people were still lining up around blocks and sleeping on sidewalks to get there first.

More specifically, I remember seeing that and then it cutting back to Jon Stewart exasperated, saying "It's not going to be any good!"

I really don't think the franchise is in any more or less danger because of the quality of TLJ, as it is from other factors, like competing with other Disney tentpole movies and fatigue from frequent releases.

I didn't see RotS in the theatres, wish I had. I don't plan on making that mistake again. People here and elsewhere will crow about how bad the movie is regardless of its actual quality, so I don't plan on even pretending to listen to them this time around.

Everyone 'apparently' says everything, I'll believe it when I see it.

And personally, I hope they keep it. I prefer it over any fan explanation I've hears about Rey's secret Jedi parents who loved her so much they kept her safe by leaving her in the care of Unkar "risk life and limb for no food" Plutt.

On moon miranda.

After the last one I just can't bring myself to be terribly interested in this. It's not that I hate everything Star Wars now, I'd love to go back and replay Dark Forces or TIE Fighter or rewatch ANH, but the the story, coherence, characters, tone, and general acting quality of the last couple flicks just did not click for me enough to be interested in Episode IX. Even potential spoilers aren't bothering me I find.

After Rian Johnson's torturous abortion masquerading as a Star Wars film that was immediately followed up by "Han Solo's Really Important Week" where he did everything important in his backstory in the space of a few days, yeah, this trailer is really fething important to Star Wars as a franchise.

Not giving much away good to see Lando and Leia but is that the title?

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

They seem to be retconning Rey's parentage again so is she a Skywalker now?

Plus Palpatines laugh at the end!

Yep - who resistance is dead. Only Rey and Kylo are left. They join forces and fight Snokes Ghost - or a clone of palpatine whose masterminded the whole first order rise or something. Or maybe it was luke the whole time.

He was. When the lights came up he was standing in stage and the crowd lost it.

He held up the mic and started giggling like a kid, eventually composing himself enough to say "Play it again!" in that voice.

That chase with the skiff and the speeder bikes looks a lot like one of the pieces in the ILM artstation challenge.
