There have been interviews with KK where she said the plan all along was for the Emperor to return - which is kind of contradicted by Colin Trevorrow saying he never had him in his draft of Episode 9 but that kind of tells me they're going to paint it that the Emperor was pulling the strings the whole time.

Hopefully they just did an MS Word find & replace and changed Leia to Lando. Including an emotional scene with Ben, so we find out that Lando is his real mother.

He's a TV guy originally. You write TV with an endless string of hooks. It's soap opera 101. He LIVES for the hook. Lost and Alias lived and died by the hook/cliffhanger.   He also came up on super h

I like all 4 of the Disney movies, to me they are just gifts I never expected to get. Hopefully IX will keep that going and I suspect it will.

I had a pretty stellar track record of predicting stuff during the PT era. I've been a mixed bag on the ST-- but I've also been way less invested. I'm not the spoiler hound I once was.

I think with the PT predicting stuff was mostly just not believing some of the more ridiculous rumors out there considering that we knew where it was going.

When JJ was asked about Ahsoka Tano he replied "Hmmm, Ahsoka, huh? Well, then youll probably want to watch closely during The Rise of Skywalker".

Hmmmmm. Personally I think it will be a wink or a nod to a future television project. No cameo mind you. I think Filoni set up a future projects(animated or live action) with the end of Rebels. Sadly since any story will lie past The OT and possibly the ST, we won't get and Inquisitor fights. I would live to see that live action.

At first I hated the revisionist idea of the Inquisitors, but then I realized it was a way to work around the 2 Sith rule, which I hate.

 

As tired as I am of inbetweenquels, I feel like there is a story there. One that ends with Vader crunching the numbers in confirmed Jedi kills and realizing he can finish up so he dispatches the Inquisition.

Supposedly that's what Rian Johnson's new trilogy was going to be. It's unclear if they are doing that still.

 

SW needs to do what The Next Generation did. Keep the continuity, don't reboot, jump ahead a century, tell the same style of stories with new characters.

Random question: Where would this movie have to rank on your personal rankings of Star Wars movies for you to be happy? For instance my current rankings are

1-ESB, 2-ANH, 3-TLJ, 4-TFA, 5-R1, 6-ROTS, 7-ROTJ, 8-Solo, 9-AOTC, 10-TPM

 

For me if this movie ended up nestled between ROTJ and Solo for me Id be pretty happy. Obviously I;d love for it to be much higher but if it falls right there, my new #8 then I''d be content.

It's the least excited I've been for any Star Wars movie, and I've thought all the Disney releases have been great. I just really don't have any faith in JJ to pull it off. But if I'm pleasantly surprised then I'm happy.

 

The sad thing is I should be nerding out over today - watch the new episode of Mando in a couple of hours, then immediately after start heading to the cinema for the midnight session.

I always have high expectations. Can't help it.

 

At last check in, I was here:

 

1. ESB

2. ANH

3. R1

4. ROTJ

5. TFA

6. SOLO

7. TLJ

8. ROTS

9. TPM

10. AOTC

 

...which stands a couple years later. I'd slot Mando in between ROTJ and TFA.

 

I'm expecting TROS to fall there as well. Below that, and I'll consider it a semi-failure. Above that I'd be shocked, but thrilled.

 

I know people seeing it tonight, so I'm about to ignore the internet for a few days-- I don't trust anyone to not spoil stuff.

At this point I just have to like it. I've seen some comments from those who have seen it(review embargo is still on), and they are all over the place. A common comment I've seen is that TROS really un does a lot of things the Last Jedi did. :shrug:

That's the story of the ST. You can blame RJ for that cock up.

From the early reactions Ive seen so far I gather that if you liked TLJ then youll be upset with ROS. If you hated TLJ then youll love it. Some say its a big apology for TLJ happening and feels more like a sequel to TFA.

My dislike of TLJ had nothing to do with the Luke stuff, so I wonder where I fall.

 

This was mismanaged from the start. Mistake one, not having one voice plan the trilogy. Mistake two, let fanbabies sway the course of things with their crying.

 

20 years after the PT, and I still think they are terrible movies. 20 years from now I'll look back at the ST and feel what I wonder.

My dislike for TLJ was its stuck in the mud chase plot, the casino world side quest, and of course Luke igniting his lightsaber while feeling up Bens dreams.

 

Weirdly that Luke moment helped me understand George Lucas a little more, well, not that this could be likened literally to what he was thinking as who knows not a mind reader... but, I get Han Didnt Shoot First now. I dont like it, but I get it. Luke should not have ignited his lightsaber, everything else in that scene is fine.

 

Other than that, I agree with Tank.

Ill be seeing RoS on Sunday, meanwhile be aware that spoilers are being dropped in random places on the internet.

 

 

As for what I got spoiled for, its basically just JJ deciding to put a mystery box into a finale because the mofo just could not help himself. LOL

Questions I will have on my death bed:

 

1. Was I the best father I could have been?

2. What is the point?

3. Why didn't Disney have a plan for the ST?
