Loved the teaser, love the title, and it's a NEW STAR WARS FILM 8)

Underwhelmed, overwhelmed, not bothered, excited, at least there is a film for us to watch and judge as individuals no one is right, no one is wrong, I'm really looking forward to it.

Nothing in life is black and white, if it was we wouldn't have rainbows :D

Come on Dec 19 can't wait 8) :D

I still won't be going to see Episode IX, but I was always intending to watch the trailer. As has already been said, it looks like JJ once again is leaning very heavily on original trilogy nods and tips of the hat for this new film, and whilst it literally cannot possibly be any worse than TLJ, I'm still really struggling to summon up much enthusiasm for it. JJ has the unenviable task of righting the Star Wars ship after the wreckage left by Rian Johnson, but has only one film in which to do it.

I must say though, I think the title is terrible. I would have preferred something like 'Star Wars - A New Rebellion'. Instead, 'The Rise of Skywalker' is not only a clumsy attempt to link the film to the OT, but the title is also clearly meant to be ambiguous, but really isn't; which Skywalker are we meant to think they are referring to, since Luke was inexplicably and completely needlessly bumped off for no apparent reason at the end of TLJ? Is the Skywalker of the title a brand new character we haven't met yet? No. Will it be Luke returning from the dead somehow? Highly doubtful. Or is it going to turn out to be Rey? Obviously yes.

Including the name Skywalker in the title smacks of desperation to me, as does finally bringing back Lando (who should have been brought back alongside Han, Luke and Leia in Episode VII, if Disney had even half a brain). Doing it at long last now is far too little too late, in addition to being very insulting to Billy Dee Williams. Showing Han's medal is a classic JJ tactic, just as bringing back Luke's (i.e. Anakin's) saber was in TFA (and without explaining how it got there - another typical JJ move). Including broken bits of a Death Star (even though as I recall it, both of them were blown to tiny pieces in ANH and ROTJ, with no huge chunks of flying debris raining down on any planets that I could see), and the implication that Palpatine may be returning in some way (which is nothing short of insulting to every fan's intelligence), are all very clear and deliberate attempts to realign the new film with episodes I-VII (but mainly the OT, of course), and to clearly distance itself from the clusterfuck of TLJ.

Lastly, we should also not forget that Rey's (i.e. Luke's and Anakin's) saber was wantonly sliced in half in Rian Johnson's effort, and Kylo's mask was smashed to pieces as well, and yet both of those items have either been repaired or are shown being repaired in this new trailer. And as such therefore, I did have to snigger a little to myself as I thought the strap line for this new trailer could almost be, 'Let the past live, resurrect it if you have to'! :lol:

Its hard to see how JJ can fix the mess of TLJ , that said im quite looking forward to it for some strange reason. The legacy of the franchise is on your shoulders JJ .. no pressure :D

Especially as Rose Tico is nowhere in sight


I wouldn't get your hopes up. If the role call on the Ep9 panel is anything to judge, her screen time will probably be more than minimal. I wonder what anti-capitalist, animal rights crusade she'll be going on this time. :lol:


God she was an absolutely terrible actress (( Actor post 2010 )) the character was pointless and the astonishing level of delusion championing her inability post TLJ remains sickening. To read JJ’s Comments from the panel has removed all my hope that this film won’t actually be as shit as the others. It’s completely nonsensical that anyone can claim this dud was the best thing in anything. Especially when your expunging Mark Hamill’s performance level by bigging up this ducking clown.

Looks brilliant, can't wait for December, loved the panel to, good to see Kelly get some love from the audience, after all the crap whiny fan boys put her through, I get some people didn't like her performance but she didn't deserve the hate she got.

She did not deserve the personal abuse she got. She deserved every single comment that reflected on her inability to act. It’s fair to put most of the criticism towards the writing, casting and director as they frankly should have been better at their job. That’s not her fault.

The title is Ep IX Trailer so I don't see the need for all this talk of the last Jedi in this thread. I under
Stand people didn't like the last film but that's not what is being discussed here.

Stu,

I personally think it looks awful, but I just cannot get on with the sequels. I loved the stand alone but IMO the casting was awful for the sequels. Ridley , Boyega and Driver are awful actors who have about as much skill as Daffy Duck. Driver reminds me of Hayden C from AOTC and Ridley is just so wooden. She tries to over act and completely ruins the character with her pathetic acting.

However, as I always say I'm glad that people who like it are getting what they want. But, every person has a right to an opinion whether it be good.or bad and sometimes those opinions can be harsh, but that's life.

 The 24-hour traffic for Skywalker following its drop at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago on Friday April 12 was 111M, which was 20M more than the Stars Wars: The Last Jedi teaser (91M as of April 14, 2017) and more than double the 24-hour traffic for Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser from Thanksgiving, Nov. 27, 2014.
