Movies Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker Teaser Trailer

Recommended Posts

I have hope, I enjoyed The Force Awakens well enough (still do, it's not great but it's good enough). I don't like the title and I don't like how fan service heavy it is as if it's giving us everything TLJ haters didn't like about TLJ. Now force users are maybe chopping tie fighters in half with their lightsabers? Sure, it's cool (if that's ultimately the scene) but then also destroyed Death Star II and Palpatine is maybe back?

 

Trailer was mostly good so I'm hopeful but JJ has never made a great movie, just good enough ones. Star Trek Into Darkness, the only sequel he's ever done up to now, was pretty bad. We'll see.

I have no problem with Palpatine being alive conceptually. Yeah he fell down a big hole. Maul got sliced in half and THEN fell down a big hole and he lived. So it’s stupid and ridiculous, but that is on brand for the franchise so I don’t care.

 

I’m disappointed in it if for no other reason than that TLJ seemed to divorce Star Wars from some of the baggage that 40 years of movies has brought with it. The Emperor was rad in the OT, he was wasted potential in 99% of the PT.  The notion that the last 120 minutes of the ST is going to make him more satisfying feels pretty hollow.

 

I feel about TFA / TLJ the way I feel about Black Panther / most of the MCU. TFA is a fun romp. Most of the MCU movies are fun romps. I feel that TLJ had something to say, and so did Black Panther. I will still enjoy movies in those franchise that don’t have anything to say, but I’ll miss the absence.

I feel exactly as you do - this post 100%. I want more of a movie with something to say, like the OT and TLJ did, rather than just a fun fan-servicey romp. At least there's a time jump so we can presume these characters have finally spent some time with each other off screen. TLJ's biggest mistake was no time jump.

Quote

Speaking at The Phantom Menace panel at Star Wars Celebration 2019, Lucas said Jar Jar "is my favorite character" and The Phantom Menace itself remains one of his favorite Star Wars movies. He went on to praise Ahmed Best for his performance as the Jar Jar character, saying he "did a fantastic job, it was very, very hard".
