What's Rise of Skywalker? I thought the Star Wars saga ended perfectly with 8.

 

It's the non-canonical experimental project that was accidentally filmed instead of Colin Trevorrow's masterpiece!

Any attempt to make sense of the sequel trilogy, taking into account the events of the OT and PT, is folly.  

 

Anakin's force ghost doesn't appear at all.  Doesn't teach Luke or Leia jack shit about the secrets of the dark side/Sith.  Doesn't even talk to Kylo, his grandson, LOL, who's just begging for his attention.

That isn't how force ghosts work.

 We had no idea that Force ghosts could CALL LIGHTNING DOWN FROM THE HEAVENS until two movies ago.

 

I'm pretty sure that there are zero rules at this point as to how Force ghosts "work".

There are zero rules for how the force works. Every movie introduces something new.

In the Clone Wars series Yoda communicates with Qui-Gon Jinn who tells him he needs to learn a lost Jedi ability. Yoda masters it and teaches it to Kenobi. This is how they were able to stay around as force Force ghosts and we didn't see thousands of them walking around during the Clone Wars.

Yeah, Clone Wars gave the back story to Yoda's comment at the end of RotS but Anakin didn't have that training and was still a force ghost at the end of RotJ. You could even argue Anakin was 2 force ghosts, the original restored body but looking like his age at time of death ghost and the extra special edition pre-Vader body ghost :p

Supposedly Kenobi helped save Anakin by teaching him how to become a force Ghost after death but before he became one with the Force.

I still don't believe having a plan from the get go is the be-all-end-all of making a good trilogy, but in this instance, seeing how it ended on such a mess, yeah maybe. Or just not hire back JJ as director for IX, or hell not even for VII since I always felt ge was the most obvious, safest choice, and I say that even though I liked The Force Awakens!

What I said in the other thread: 

 

JJ Abrams has himself admitted he's not good at endings, then he was hired to rush the film that was meant to be an ending to a trilogy and a nine film saga and it was Star Wars on cocaine. The original Star Wars trilogy is great and wasn't necessarily made with a mapped out "plan", it's just JJ Abrams isn't good at this.

there is a solution to that. It’s called hiring writers. Hell, I’m sure there are some in movie/tv industry that for insiders are known for being able to tie up stories.

JJ Abrams is a writer, and co-wrote TFA and TROS. If you're a writer yourself, why hire writers even when you are bad at endings (/JJ logic)?! :p
