The Rise of Skywalker!

I hated Ep 8, but I sure as hell hope it's not too late to win me back!

And JJ Abrams is back. I loved Ep 7, and thought it was as good or even better than Ep 4, which is saying an awful lot for me. What Rian Johnson did to The Last Jedi was just atrocious.

Of note: Billy Dee Williams is back as Lando Calrissian; Mark Hamill is doing some voice over of Luke; the emperor is laughing; and that backflip-Tie-fighter-chopping is just awesome. (I suspect that won't be in the film, but it's a damn cool shot!) In fact, it's just plain badass!

Let the debate begin!

Since November 2016, I have tried to live my life without politics or football, and it has been the most peaceful time of my life.

I'm also disappinted by ep 8 and really hoping JJ will save me for ep 9, which is hilarious.

I'm dying for Lando to return!

Also excited to see Lando again!

The whole Emperor thing is throwing me off though. So the DS debris means the gang is on Yavin IV? Endor? Did the Emperor survive inside one of the falling pieces and has just been hanging out for a few decades? Is he a spooky Sith Force Ghost?

What the hell is going on.

So it goes.

No idea. There was a lot of stuff in the Ep 8 trailer that made me think some questions would be answered, when, in fact, no questions were answered at all.

Thus, I'm trying not to read into it too much. However, there has been a lot of speculation that the emperor never died and was hanging out some place, so … yeah.

It would be cool to draw everything together with that nut having been behind it all from the very beginning, and perhaps Rey, with Luke's guidance, being the one to finish it off.

So Snoke was.... ?

Leave it to JJ to resurrect the Big Bad. I guarantee that he's going to pull an Ep6 and reveal that Kylo and Rey are related by blood somehow, never mind Kylo's lies in Ep8.

So it goes.

It is widely known within the Star Wars universe (and supported by Yoda in Ep 1) that there are never more than two Sith lords at any one time. "Always two there are, never more, never less." The legend goes that, should an apprentice take on an apprentice, that the two will conspire to kill the master. Or that the apprentice to the apprentice will conspire with the master to kill the apprentice, etc. Thus, if Snoke was an apprentice to Sidious, he would not have taken an apprentice lest he disrupt the established order. So, if he did disrupt the order, then it is possible that Sidious (the master) might have secretly conspired with the apprentice to the apprentice (Kilo Ren) to kill off the apprentice in order to reestablish the, uhm, order.

At least that's the way one might interpret the existence of Snoke.

As far as family relations go, yes, I suppose that could happen. Brother and sister kiss, again! Some people are in to that sort of thing.

I like the "Rey is a Palpatine" conspiracy theory. It's silly, but Jedis do go back and forth between Dark and Light.
