Remember Sideache? He does licensed art for Star Wars and he's at some sort of geekfest this week selling his wares and he posted about the trailer being presented there. Said the place went bonkers.
I miss Sideache.

He made one of the funniest posts to CPS ever once.
Skip is there. Posted pics of Cliff packaging a print for him and such. Quite jealous.

I grew up on episodes IV, V, and VI. Every time we rented movies from the movie rental shop in town. I got at least one of them to rewatch.
Episodes I, II, and III were interesting back story, but nothing special.
I've seen VII and IIX, but see them as stretching out a story that had a decent enough ending. I still saw them in theaters, but was glad I only paid the weekday afternoon price.
I saw the first spin-off (the name escapes me) in theaters and though entertaining, it was enough to convince me that Solo would be worth waiting for on Netflix so I didn't have to pay any extra for that experience.
I'm still a Star Wars fan and I look forward to episode IX, but I don't see it as any more than an extension of an already great story.
The wreckage of a Death Star is interesting. I look forward to seeing where that goes.

The Rise of Skywalker? I assume Luke.

He’s a dolt until Obi Wan comes along. He killed the first Death Star, so we know that. Chick he was dry humping turns out to be his sister. Hell, his daddy was Darth Flippin’ Vader. I think we’ve already seen the rise of Skywalker.

I figure this is picking up where that high steppin’ philly puts the light saber into dude’s hand. Please tell me I am close.

If I am close, which history records clearly support that I am most likely not, then the title seems crumminess.

He disappeared. Went into hiding. Typical bun hair style wearing dumbass behavior. Yeah. This is gonna be epic.

So, I don't think this is really a spoiler since it's in the trailer...but the laughter at the end was Emperor Palpatine 8O

The trailer has given rise to many a speculation in the tuttle household among the children. The top three speculations currently floating about are:

1) Despite TLJ, Rey's origin is somehow linked to the Skywalkers
2) Luke will corporeally rise
3) Rey is the embodiment of the Force...literally the Force in human form
4) The most intriguing comes from my nine year old. She thinks Anakin Skywalker will return.

One of the more interesting theories I've heard about the title is that the name "Skywalker" is going to become the new descriptor for light side force users. The "Jedi" will have truly died, as, according to Luke, the Jedi have failed rather spectacularly. Rey will be the first of the Skywalkers, who will somehow adopt the good parts of the Jedi while not necessarily sticking to everything that made the Jedi who they were. [shrug]

I really hope Abrams can right the ship. I lost a load of faith after The Last Jedi. I'm hopeful he can do it.

Apparently unlike you, I hope that they don't walk back from the ground laid in The Last Jedi.

If they don't — and I imagine that they won't — it seems to promise a great ending.
I very much enjoyed The Last Jedi. Not sure why so many didn't. I hope they don't walk it back either. But even if they do, I'll probably enjoy it anyway.

JJ Abrams was asked in a recent interview about Rey's parents:
Abrams said, rather than wrote:“I will say that we knew, going into this, that this movie, it had to be a satisfying conclusion. And we were well aware that that’s one of the things that’s been out there. I don’t want to say that what happens in Episode 8 [didn’t happen]. We have honored that. But I will say that there’s more to the story than you’ve seen.”
I think this helps my #3 speculation. If they honor Ep 8's answer, and yet there's more to the story, then a viable option would be that her "parents" were probably and actually "nobody". If she's the embodiment of the Force or whatever, she'd literally have no parents (remember Anakin's mom? She said "There was no father"). And likely the people who took care of her were just that and nothing more important than that. So that would maintain the integrity of Ep 8 and give us more.

Oy. I told myself I wasn't going to get sucked into this...

While, in general, I agreed with many of your criticisms of TLJ, I was surprised that you got hung up on Kylo Ren telling Rey that her parents were nobody. It fit the story at the time, but there is nothing to suggest that he wasn't just outright lying. Heck, Ben Kenobi told Luke that his father was killed by Darth Vader only to walk it back in the next movie. Why in the world would the story writers be bound by Kylo Ren's manipulation of Rey? Everything else pointed to her being Luke's daughter, but since Kylo Ren told her she's nobody we're supposed to believe it?

I'm still caught up by the broom scene at the end of TLJ.

Was it Disney at that point? it was, wasn't it?
