Here's something from the trailer (bottom) that someone on twitter noticed from Rey's vision from TLJ (top). I thought it was an A-wing when I watched the trailer, but the ships seem identical.

That image isn't loading.

Think I've seen that pointed out elsewhere, though.

@ LeeC.

That's an interesting possibility.  Hadn't  thought of that.

So it'll probably happen.

I, for one, am not planning to make a final decision until I've read reviews from on-line pundits (both pro- and anti-sequel trilogy) whose relative level of sanity I respect and whom I am confident lack any incentive to distort things positively or negatively. Once I have done that, if I see it, it will be in its second weekend of release.

I probably won't be taking Rotten Tomatoes' aggregate scores into consideration as I am satisfied that they use every means to manipulate their scores should there be an incentive to do so.

I totally agree with you on the second point; although to be fair, I am suspicious of all aggregate scoring systems, not just Rotten Tomatoes'.

I will avoid any form of review before seeing it because I'd rather not be influenced in my enjoyment of the film (or lack thereof) either way.

Have to see it to the bitter end...
I left the theatre after The Last Jedi thinking, surely there can be no follow up to this BS that could in any way be a good thing?

But, the fact that Rian was punted, and JJ has stated he's tearing what has gone before apart...

Anyway... I've seen all the rest on the big screen from day one... have to see the journey out, regardless of the destination...

New trailer dropped:


Edit: The thumbnail for the video is kind of a spoiler I suppose but then again its in the trailer. I put it in a spoiler anyway.

All I can say is wow.

@LeeC,

There are basically two explanations that I can think of:

Either way, I would counsel everyone to remember how deceptive were the trailers for The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. It's quite possible that nothing we've been given so far more than slightly matches the final product.

Yeah, Jesse in that video pretty much said that they seem to be treading into old EU stuff so I wouldn't be surprised.

Given that some of the EU stuff has force users being called "Skywalkers"... I really hope this isn't the meaning of the title.

TBH I've no idea what I want from this movie.
RJ really kicked the joy out of the saga for me.
We knew Han was gonna die cos Harrison had it written into his contract, but there's been little to no outcome of that.
Han Solo's dead? Oh well.

And the desecration of Luke's character was just sickening.

JJ has a LOT to do to pull this out of the fire to make the ending of the "Skywalker saga" in any way satisfying.
Yes, the trailer looks good, but I'm sort of dreading it being a total cheese fest (Dark Threepio, Force Dream Rey (assumed), Spirirt of Plagius (alleged), Emperor clones or suchlike (supposed) and Luke's still dead. (unnecessary).

But Leia is making an appearance, so there's SOME justice.

I know a lot of the above is supposition... but I'm just hoping it won't be just more flashy images over content.

We need something with the soul of a New Hope, the heart of Empire, the cinematographyof the Last Jedi and the fight choreography of Ray Parks!

What if the evil Rey is Kylo's force cave moment?  :?

Expanding this into the physical world, what if Rey was the evil one all along and she finally gets activated thus forcing the only person left with Skywalker blood (Leia will die, probably early in the movie) to rise from darkness? Bet you didn't see that in the Mystery BoxTM.

At this point the fandom has so utterly sucked the joy from the main movies that I'm just ready for the SAGA to be over. Let's end the Skywalkers and their taint upon the galaxy and look at all the other cool stuff that's happening in the margins.

Yeah.. His, or her own.
(Although I would have imagined Kylo would already have had something of this ilk LONG ago...? Still who's to say you only get one? :)  )

And if that IS the case, putting this in a trailer would be akin to seeing Luke decapitating Vader in a trailer for Empire... 
A spoiler at best, totally misleading at worse.

My worst fear is that this does happen, and the Mary Sue-ing of Rey continues with her being tempted and defeating the pull of the Dark Side in a convenient 100 minute movie. (Although... I've seen a timeline-type poster thing from some Disney promo or other with all of the Star Wars legacy and ongoing projects on it... and TRoS looks to be taking place a good few years after TLJ )

(Went looking... found it...)



If that timeline is to scale (and it should be) then TFA and TLJ have taken place almost immediately after each other (or the time increment on the scale is barely enough to make a gap)... but the time gap between TLJ and TRoS is larger than that of Empire and Return...

Jebus.. I'm turning into a total fanboy geek here...
