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.

So the title has me curious and speculating.

@ LeeC.

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

Would be awful.

So it'll probably happen.

Are you two planning on seeing it, then?

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...

(Ooo.. get HIM with his purple fecking prose!)  :)
