There is no trust left in my soul, just a void. They at least do solid trailers.

The teaser was brilliant and I loved the big 'drymount you' from JJ Abrams to the previous director.

No one really leaves. Here is Luke, Leia, Lando and the Emperor for y'all to gawk at.

Last Jedi was a travesty, one of the worst films of the past several years and so out of place with the rest of the movies.

Loved this and hopeful it will be solid.

Not really. JJ is a class-act dude. For all it’s “problems”, I’m happy TLJ took chances - obviously some didn’t pay off, but whatever - there’s always going to be another Star Wars movie. I’ve been a Star Wars fan for as long as I can remember but I never feel like I am “owed” anything with regards to the movies.

Hot take: The Rise of SKYWALKER = Kylo’s redemption. The proof is always in Williams score. When the Title “TROS” pops onto the screen, we hear the first two notes of Kylo’s (villain) theme, immediately transitioning into a major key. BOOM.

This. Also applies to new print releases.

Everything is a bonus and a new option to enjoy. Take it or leave it.

No matter how many of these films turn out to be bad, A new Star Wars trailer will always give me goosebumps. While my expectations are certainly checked, my hopes are sky high. I want them to take chances too, but TLJ didn't suck because of the chances they took, it sucked because of the objectively garbage writing, the characters all acting totally against logic and major plot points not making any sense.

That said. THRILLED Lando is going to be in it, in my opinion this is LONG overdue, he could have and should have been used in TLJ to maybe give Fin and Rose's dumb B story more of a point and purpose. Assuming in IX he is the one who answer's Leia's signal though.

The Last Jedi was fine. It’s Star Wars.

Mandolorian footage is great.

More excited for it than this new saga.

I'm with CCSMD and RN on this . . . I like TLJ for the bold choices it made and some of the best shot scenes in all of the SW Universe of films. Were there choices I maybe didn't "want?" Probably, but I respect everything they did in it (except maybe Mary Poppins Leia flight, lol).

Eh, it's weird to think anybody there at Disney is giving a big F you to the guy who's apparently working with the GoT guys to plot out the future of Star Wars.

JJ "plays it safe" with TFA...fans complain this movie is too safe! Basically ANH remake! SAD!

Rian Johnson takes chances with TLJ, tries to push boundaries and explore new ideas...fans complain he RUINED STAR WARS

I don't think I've heard someone that wasn't an adult complain about these movies. I fell in love with Star Wars when I was a child. Now that I am a 30 year old man, I understand that the "magic" of these movies does not affect me in the same way (for most at least). So when "fans" find reasons not to like the new installments, maybe take a second and think maybe I've grown up and these movies don't affect me the same way they used to. Something something appreciate it for what it is.

Abandon basic storytelling premise, call it bold choices.

Just feels like a wasted trilogy, very disjointed. Effects have been great but meh.


You get two extremes of movie creation, fans will complain. They didn't get the right directors for this but it also feels like movie by committee.
