Yasss JJ Abrams coming back to erase all The Last Jedi wrongs. Luke really needs to be here though, especially without Carrie </3

With JJ Abrams back at the helm, I'm sure this will be much more of a crowd pleaser which is definitely needed to be fair! I'm not expecting anything revolutionary, but I'm certainly still interested to see it.

Omg that laugh at the end is unmistakenly Palpatine's no? Please *.*.*

Is that Palepetine’s laugh at the end? Clearly the marketing is going to be geared towards getting the fans to see it after the disaster of The Last Jedi.

Surely they can’t be trolling us with the title? Rey has got to be a Skywalker?? Or Kylo Ren turns good?

I've been a Star Wars fan for a long time, but I just can't feel excited about this at all. Force Awakens just felt like a rehash of A New Hope, and Last Jedi was just such a mess.

Palpatine is my most favourite villain of all time, so he's the only thing that's peaking my interest at the moment...

I am so pumped for this now after seeing that trailer! It looks good so far. I quite liked the Last Jedi with only Finn’s pointless side story irking me. I do think Abrams will revert a few things that Rian subverted in his film.

Final trailer has been released:




I was so excited after seeing the D23 trailer but I can't help but think this is going to be as much of an incoherent mess as the rest of the trilogy has been sad.gif

'The saga will end' ay? So no more origin films/possibly a new trilogy/whatever else there is to make money out of this, sure...tongue.gif

Trailer looks good, that's undeniably Palpatine's voice there, I just hope he's used well and not axed within minutes! Wonder what's happening to C-3PO... :'(

Well, coming from a huge Star Wars fan, I LOVED it. I totally get why the critics might not but it was very good fun and the outcome was very safisfying.

I loved it too! It was very fun and the fan service was perfect (although, very cheesy laugh.gif)

Was it "perfect"? No. You could tell there was no story structure prior to this new trilogy and the end was a complete rip-off of Episide 6. but it was very fun and it's always good just being back in the Star Wars world.

Edit: it's up to 57% on RT but the audience score is at 88% with over 340 scores. Audience and critics are divided with this one again, except it is the other way around compared to The Last Jedi laugh.gif

Good news: there's lots of nods to the classic Star Wars films and cast, down to the not-spoiler-alert big-beardy-pilot being amongst the first to blow up in a space battle. It wouldnt be Star Wars without that laugh.gif

I saw Ian McDiarmid signing autographs to huge long queues of people in line last summer as London Film & Comic Con. I can neither confirm not deny rumours that he is in the final film of the nonogy (made up word that needs to exist in the modern film biz). I will say he plays one of the greatest villains in movie history in Return Of The Jedi.

Bad news: well, the tragic loss of Carrie Fisher has left a gaping hole in the plot structure of the film. Clearly this was supposed to be her Big Feature, and they've cobbled together segments by having other characters ask questions to allow existing footage to be used, but it's a bit of a mish-mash really and the dramatic Leia scenes that should be there aren't, and it shows. Theyve tried to gloss over it by spreading Carrie about a bit and keeping the pace frantic and overly complex.

I have to admit I didn't guess the big secret of Rey, though the casting list should have given a clue...

8/10 flawed but hey it's Star Wars and I can't mark any film lower than Phantom Menace...

I enjoyed it, I love all the Star Wars films, all the films have their flaws if you analyse them. But it was a great popcorn movie, loads of stuff nodding back to the original trilogy and some real fun moments.

My biggest gripe really is Finn was a main character yet they gave him no character arc at all past the first film. Just random subplots that make little sense of what could have been an even better character.

And also I genuinely have no idea if all this was planned from the start but the film seemingly just did try and write so many wrongs of The Last Jedi. I guess they wanted the audience to have the emotional impact of Luke’s death (even though it pissed us all off) when I think teasing Palpetine’s Return would have been so much better and exciting as an ending. Does make me wonder if they changed their mind with regards to the overall story.

So. Much. Fan Service.

I did enjoy it overall as an entertaining popcorn movie, it looked as great as ever and I like that it was a lot more plot focused than The Last Jedi which was a bit too disparate in it's storylines and focused on the main three (though I could've done without all the side characters). But what it didn't do so well was making it all so predictable, like it or not, The Last Jedi took risks and confounded expectations, it didn't work all the time but it did create intrigue and build the plot, there literally wasn't a single twist here I didn't see coming Rey being linked to Palpatine in some way was annoying seeing as I preferred when they initially seemed to write that storyline off, Ren sacrificing himself just as Darth Vader did, all the cameos from dead series regulars, and not a single significant hero died either, which while I totally get it, it would've at least upped the stakes a bit.

Rey & Ren's chemistry was again a real highlight and I particularly loved Rey fighting her darker self, I just wish more could've been done with it, like I kinda wanted her to turn just briefly as it would've at least been something I didn't expect. Poe was a lot less irritating this time, Finn is still getting majorly shafted, we really didn't need yet another pointless double act with a randomer.

I did like it more than I didn't, I just wish they wouldn't have made this such a blatant apology letter for The Last Jedi (or y'know had the same director for all three so there's a consistent vision), as it stands, I think this trilogy will forever be one that didn't fully rise to it's potential.

As dvds usually get released on a Monday and Star Wars day is on a Monday this year, it would be fitting for them to release episode IX on 4th May

The more I think about this film, the more I dislike it. It was so blatantly pandering in the worst ways, some ridiculous plot changes and has made the whole trilogy look completely messy with so many ideas retconned and thrown around that almost nothing was developed.

This trilogy really suffered from not having a clear vision (apart from y'know making money) unlike the other two trilogies and I don't think it'll hold up all that well. I'm glad they're resting Star Wars as they really need to rethink this (I am admittedly interested in The Mandalorian though).
