So Palpatine and Luke will be fighting in the force heaven while Rey and Kylo duke it out in the world of the living?

hmm, my guess is that the Emperor either survived the fall (Darth Maul survived something similar and I think he was in worse condition) or was cloned (I think this was Expanded Universe material before Disney labeled all that stuff non-canon). But I can imagine what you are saying here.

If Rey dies at the end and the bad guys actually win, consider me shocked, surprised, and pulled in. Kylo Ren wins and achieves Darth Vader status.

My bet is that if dies is because she sacrifices herself for something.

After the horrific travesty that was The Last Jedi, this will be the first Star Wars film released in my lifetime that I won't be seeing in cinemas. Disney has killed the franchise for me. It's become such a poorly thought out mishmash of cynical focus tested tackiness.

Sorry, I don't watch garbage feminist mary sue propaganda. Screw Disney for throwing out the integrity of the franchise.

Movie looks like crap already.

Im sorry i dont care about toxic masculinity and man who cant handle strong females. Get your self a confidence and open your mind. There is a life outside your Man Cave.  Anyway, i like the trailer, more a teaser.  Cant wait.

Both of you suck the fun out of everything.  Go wage your battles somewhere else please.

Nice. JJ Abrams seems to be following his own themes instead of Johnson's.

It's the writers for the new trilogy who need to mature their writing.

She's going to jump over that advanced tie and slice the cockpit in the trailer guaranteed.

Obi-wan and his high ground be damned. Rey making Anakin "super sayain medi-cholrian count chosen one" Skywalker look like a padawan.

She's a Mary Sue. Indisputable



Hard to get a read on it.. Guess that's why it's a teaser. I do feel better about it by the simple fact that J.J. is back at the helm and at this point I trust him far more than Rian Johnson. But it's tough to get hyped after the travesty that was The Last Jedi. The Lando sighting and (likely) Palpatine return is neat. Also love that Luke will be back - hopefully they don't freaking destroy his character again. They are also going to have a hell of a time explaining away Luke and Palpatine's return.



Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you.

She's a typical Mary Sue. Considering they're bringing back Luke and Palpatine, instead of sticking with Rian Johnson's vision, just shows they know they fucked up. That and they have no vision of their own. This will probably be fan service to the millionth degree. I'm skipping.

There were 99 other problems with the film imo, and I don't think anyone can confidently pinpoint any one particular reason for a course correction in IX.

I don't like how Rey got so strong before training, but that was honestly one of the smallest issues I had with the film.
And I'd wager the issue people feel more strongly about is how they handled Luke, given that his character has such a long legacy.
But in TLJ, Luke who would even see the good in Darth Vader,

Spoiler!
considered butchering his nephew in his sleep as his FIRST choice. 

Emphasis on 'first'.
That's just not his character. I didn't buy it.
And then there was the map to Skywalker. But

Spoiler!

he didn't want to help out even when he heard that his best friend had been killed.

There were so many issues I had with that film, I'd have to write an essay to go through half of them.

And even if they revive

Spoiler!
Luke

that doesn't necessarily mean J.J. Abrams disagrees with Rian Johnson's vission of Luke (although I would hope it does). It could also be because of something like Leia's actor dying, and they originally planned to have her play an important role at the end. But now they need a different character to fill that spot.

1) I think people misjudge Luke's personality quite a bit in Eps IV-VI and VIII.  IV-VI Luke is incredibly naive.  Even in VI.  In The Return of the Jedi Anakin is still driven by the same thing that turned him to the Dark Side in the first place.  To control chaos, to control the galaxy against those things he perceives as injustice, by force if necessary.  Only with his son joining him would he be able to do what he wanted to accomplish, only with the imminent death of his son does he finally realize the folly, the futile nature of his goal, especially at that point.

That naivety carries Luke into his actions with his nephew.  He has the vision of his nephews corruption and thus makes his hesitant decision, only to realize that that decision itself is what fulfilled the vision in the first place.  A not uncommon theme.

I think is actions in VIII are fully within character. Nor do I see an issue with a map, pieced together from clues by people trying to find him on both sides.

2) Wracked with the guilt of his own failure he makes yet another naive decision that Jedi and their actions, his actions, will come to ruin.  He shuts himself away in a remote place.  VIII actually has a recurring theme that Luke incorrectly caries over from ep V.  He will only make things worse if he interferes.  In V he finds out about his father, he loses a hand, Han is trapped in carbonite, Leia is now slave to Jabba, etc.  Finally at the last he decides to intervene and face the decision he made against his Nephew.

3) I highly doubt Luke gets revived in any sense.  Force ghost sure, there is plenty of precedence for that.  There is also plenty of potential lore to account for some influence of Palpatine to rear its head in IX.
