"Somehow, Ben has survived," Poe announced.

Rey gasped. "Now, we can be together," she thought.

Then they were.

I kind of hope that theory that Palpatine was actually Anakin's father through Force magic is true because that means that Ben Solo is actually Rey's nephew.

How to redeem the sequel trilogy:

1. Make a new series (animated or not) following the rise of the Resistance and First Order, leading up to TFA, that continues through the beginning of TROS. It would flesh out Leiaís final years, and let us see some more of this world that the movies hint at: the fall of Lukeís academy, stormtrooper indoctrination, military industrial complex, powerless politicians, Reyís proper jedi training with Leia, etc.

2. Episode 10-12 trilogy which reveals that Rey failed to stop Palpatine in ROS, and he actually did possess her at the end. She becomes the main villain, Empress Skywalker, and the protagonists can be literally anyone who is alive- Finn, Poe, Rose, Jannah, Lando, Chewie, the droids, Ackbarís son, Ezra, Ahsoka, Sabine, Ghost Luke, DJ, et al. The trilogy would culminate as a sort of reverse prequel trilogy, where we start out at the dawn of this new Empire, and by the end of the trilogy the heroes have defeated the empire, established a new republic, and a new, less formal, Jedi order.

Edit: Except I donít think theyíll ever be able to convince Oscar Isaac to come back (unless he gets into some kind of Nic Cage situation) so I guess Poe dies while piloting a ship full of beige blob aliens, due to light-speed skipping them all into the side of a cliff/building.

They killed off Han and Luke, and Carrie Fisher is dead for real, so they'll either have to give somebody a character, or maybe just press forward with CGI versions of dead actors. Probably the later. After the upcoming Billy Dee Williams movie they announced at the end of RoS.

If you just reboot episode 9 hundreds/thousands of years into the future you could literally repeat the main story line/plot points OR make new ones that RHYME LIKE POETRY and it 💯 fits within the Star Wars universe.

I mean gently caress they already did this with KotOR/SWtOR except into the past.

I watched it a couple of weeks back for the first time as well, and ended up just fast-forwarding through the last third so I could get it over with. Sure, there was good-looking spectacle in there I think, but it just felt dumb to watch instead of evocative in any way I could appreciate

Chillgamesh
Jul 29, 2014




I didn't totally hate it as I was watching it but I think that was because of its overwhelming shallowness. It seemed to be so nakedly trying to please the maximum amount of people possible in every single scene that it was kind of hard to be actually mad at it. It's hilarious to me how noncommittal it was to literally every plot thread that started in TFA, TLJ, and even in its own fuckin script though.

Finn has something really important to tell Rey! Poe is really interested in this for some reason! He never tells her anything and also she fucks off to the other side of the galaxy! Finn meets Jannah! Wow seems like they could really connect over shared experiences! NOPE she's gonna gently caress off with Lando for some reason I guess!

They couldn't even commit to having Poe do anything with the Daft Punk lady for gently caress's sake, she just shows up in a Y-Wing for some reason at the end. Like this is the last movie in the story, you would think they could put literally any finality in it at all, but no. Everything just loving dangles in the air and it's dumb as hell.

Also the space battle at the end loving sucked which is a cardinal sin for a star war imo. Fighting on horseback along the deck of the star destroyer was cool, but the actual space battle was lame.

edit: how much do you think they paid Wedge to do the cameo

Wedge was in that movie? I just watched it last night and didn't even notice. What a mess. I had the subtitles on and laughed when Rey was talking to the dead Jedi and one of the voices was labeled as Ahsoka. I guess she's dead?

I can't remember if they have confirmed that she's dead or not. Assume that she's dead until they need to defrost the character for something sequel related I guess.

Given the stuff referenced in this article I'm sure she pops back up if Filoni gets his way.

I feel like I need to admit at the beginning of RoS when tie fighters are yet again chasing the millennium falcon as someone shoots at them from a turret I was really hoping it would crash and be destroyed so I would never have to see that scene redone again. It would've been an interesting start to the movie too, but the toys don't sell themselves!

They fake you out with another ship replacing the falcon for one scene and then "lol nope back to the MILLENIUM FALCON! Isnt it cool our sequel trilogy heroes have no identity???"

It's even worse than that. You don't see the Falcon when Rey says its a piece of garbage and drags Finn towards the quadjumper, so you're left with the momentary feeling that the movie might establish itself with a proper identity and then NO MOTHERFUCKER, MILLENNIUM FALCON, NOSTALGIA FOREVER!

Thats a different movies fakeout about the falcon. They do it twice, once in each JJ film, because JJ Abrams is a fraud and Disney assembled some very bad people to steer the project
