    The idea of ships flying close to the ground seems to be a recurring thing in this trilogy. I like it.

    There's a theory out there that I think makes some sense - that "Skywalker" will be a thing like the Jedi or the Sith.
    I'm just going to go find a cash machine.

    That explanation makes the most sense -- "Skywalkers" are a new title of Force users that aren't beholden to the old Jedi ways -- if the next movie is continuing the "let's burn everything about Star Wars to the ground" that The Last Jedi started.

    I'm kinda over these movies. Last Jedi was garbage, and I've got less than zero interest in watching a movie where Palpatine returns from the grave to reveal "I was the true bad guy all along!" Plus, then we're subjected to watching a Kylo Ren redemption story, having to pretend like we didn't watch him murder Han Solo in cold-blood during the first movie of this new trilogy.

    Sure, but with Ian McDiarmid being announced for the cast, I'm assuming he's going to play more of a role than just flashbackery or a cameo.

    Really, the only thing they can do to win me back at this point would be to open the movie with the Star Wars text crawl:

    EPISODE IX
    THE RISE OF SKYWALKER

    FIRST OFF, OUR BAD ON THAT LAST MOVIE.

    ďI am done with star wars. Soooooo done.

    Ok, now let me comment about why Iím done 17,820 times on various social media platforms.Ē

    I donít get it. You hate Star Wars now. We get it. Why not just find something else in pop culture to talk about?

    This isnít really just directed at you, just the various fanboys that canít get over the new trilogy not being exactly what they want it to be.

    This is a lot of how I feel, and my son hasnt even asked about going.

    They are sort of stupid at this point, which is why they are going to give them a break, probably.

    Re: Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker

    There should be two Star Wars tracks. One track that is a love letter to hardcore fans that have 30+ years of cementing and carving out their idea of what Star Wars is and a second track for people who are open to new weird, dark, fun, [insert any interesting adjective] movies that take place in the Star Wars universe but who don't care if they are done 'correctly'. I feel like the things that kept the Last Jedi from being great where the few things that hardcore Star Wars fans liked. I would go wild for a Star Wars movie that fully deconstructs and subverts the now outdated philosophy of the series. The Last Jedi sorta did that and it sorta was fan service and it seems it wasn't a great movie to any side (I still think it's far away my favorite of the new SW films and their spinoffs). I hope the Johnson spinoff trilogy is allowed to go full post-modern 'nothing is sacred' re-invention and create it's own new world and concepts.

    Re: Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker

    Building a movie off of avoiding what the audience expects gets you garbage like The Last Jedi

    Just make a good movie.

    My guess is this movie will do decent but not great business and combined with Solo being an awful bomb and Disney will can anything in the pipe for awhile and bring in all new idea people.

    Disney has already announced a "pause" in Star Wars films after IX is released.

    As they should. Give the public some time to decompress from their multibillion $ ad campaigns (I mean movies). In 10+ years maybe we'll be ready for more.

    It's not like they don't have 20 comic book movies to fall back on.
