Personally liked Rogue One so hopefully it can continue to get better by each film. 

Still feel the 'Story Wars Stories' franchise will wipe the floor with the actual main series.

Yep, same here.

Watched the press thing with wife. Loved the tribute to Carrie Fisher.

The cinematography in this looks fantastic. That shot of the ships with the flares(?) coming out of them with the walkers on the horizon was great. 

Star Wars is the one series that makes me feel like a kid again so I'm really excited for this. Despite all the criticism I really enjoyed Force Awakens and Rogue One was great too, it's nice to have a quality Star Wars film coming out every year.

In case you didn't already know, the jedi in the title is plural.

I thought the trailer wasn't that great but that's not a bad thing. Most of the films nowadays put there best bits in a 3min segment that basically tells you the film. I still have no idea what's going to happen here and I like that. It's a given anyway I'll just line up yearly to let Disney take my money

Hold your horses... I would say it is a common trope in fantasy, that...

Loved the last half of Rogue One, deeply hated the Force Awakens.

Are you allowed to say that on the internet!? 

I'll go a different route and say the newer 2 have mopped the floor with the first 6 Star Wars films as they weren't very good so I think this new one will be decent.

Credit to whoever made that. It actually makes those shitty prequels seem interesting.

I really hope we might see Ewan McGregor as Obi Wan again! He was the best thing about the sequels, by far.

Everyone rages about the prequels but jar jar aside they set up the trilogy quite well. I'm a fan though ever since I first saw a new hope aged about 5/6, and it's subsequent xmas repeats. 

I liked rogue 1 and the force awakens, if the last Jedi is slow and sets up a big finale in 9 then that's fine by me, I don't think you can just whole trilogies on one part of it.

I thought Rogue One was boring tbh and i'm a huge star wars fan, the force awakens was much better  ...nothing will beat the original movies though that i grew up with

Without Rogue One we'd still be asking ourselves "How did they know about the Death Star's weakness?"

Was going to stick this in the trailer thread but given how big the franchise is, I thought it probably deserved it's own thread seeing as it's likely to be the highest grossing/most talked about film of the year.

First official trailer is released. Thoughts?

Few predictions 

Like Anakin, Rey will be revealed to be a product of the force. 

Like Anakin and Luke, this being the second film will result in Rey losing a hand

Rey is seduced by the answers she desires while Ben becomes repulsed by the answers he's found. Kylo is not going through with killing his mother (Leia), but the first order (General Hux maybe?) will kill her anyway, pushing Kylo more and more away from them. 

Luke is going to refuse to train Rey once he realizes how powerful she is. But now she knows too much and wants to know MORE, which makes her a perfect candidate for the dark side, like Anakin. 

 

But I don't know if Disney would allow their most iconic female lead to turn evil.

Ok just had the time to watch it again. What's going on with CGI Chewbacca? Looks like shit.

Well I liked the look of the trailer. Have to say that out of all the characters, Kylo Ren is the one I am most intrigued by. I love a real badass guy that 'feels' almost unbeatable and I felt that in the first film he was made to be a bit too weak, especially given Rey got the upper hand on him.

That said, I understand that they did this probably because he is at the start of his own journey and is still developing his skills. Also realistically, he was shot by Chewie so the injury obviously impacted him during his fight with Rey.

It also could be to show that he still has that 'human' side in that he still feels a little good in his heart, remorse etc which was hinted at in the trailer with Princess Leia. You would imagine she will definitely be killed off, it's just a question of whether it's by Kylo or by someone else that upsets Kylo.

Been looking at the new film poster and can't help but feel like there's something prominent about Luke being made to look quite dark.

What if he changed to the dark side and Kylo teamed up with Rey to try defeat him? That could be quite the curveball.
