    The title Rise of Skywalker makes me think they'll correct some of the last movie's mistakes. It will be interesting to see how exactly the Emperor will be back.

    You know, I was wondering if the Emperor is really coming back, or if Disney is just using this as a ruse to pull more of the old fans back in along with putting Skywalker in the title. If this is played up and does not happen in the movie, fans are going to be even madder than they were in TLJ Btw, even if the Emperor does show up, I think this was just a way for the movie to have a decent villain since Johnson wasted Snoke in the last movie

    Not really digging the atmosphere and certainly not feeling the emotion I felt when I saw TFA trailer with reappearance of the Millenium Falcon, but I'm intrigued for Darth Sidious's last laugh...

    EDIT: Mods, if you would like to add Episode IX title "Rise of the Skywalker" to the thread it would be appreciated

    PeeWee Herman could have done a better laugh.

    That scene with Rey versus the TIE Invader is pretty incredible. Plus more Lando? Luke narration? A bit more Leia?

    Oh, and that Palpatine laugh at the end? What the heck? As someone who was pretty lukewarm on TLJ (I really enjoyed TFA) this seems like it could go in the right direction. We'll see.

    I wonder what the Rise of Skywalker refers to? Rey being a Skywalker? Maybe now that the Jedi are over Rey's new branch call themselves Skywalkers? Maybe Ben is redeemed, continuing the family line?

    Disney confirmed that the emperor is returning for the movie - we just don’t know in what form

    If it's just a flashback of some kind then my previous statement still stands

    I think it was interesting but could not decide if it was a newly recorded laugh or from the original movies. Tbh, I'm kinda underwhelmed in a way since the Emperor had been done and was more into the idea that Snoke was Darth Plageuis or some other big baddie that was going to make the Emperor look like a novice. Then he died in TLJ without a fight.... Most.Wasted.Character.Ever

    I could see them using bits and pieces from previous films to put Leia in the new one.
    I think I would take Jar Jar over Rose. It brings me great pain to say that - LOL!

This way it would mean that Leia is not CGI, but there is no "rule" about using that technology to take actual footage of her and edit it into the movie. Maybe they can somehow build dialog for this new movie around cut dialogue of hers from the previous films.... or maybe they'll get a good sound alike to voice her over. This is all speculation on my part, but it would make the most sense.
    I can't find it, but I know I read that the Leia scenes in IX are from deleted scenes from The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. They took the footage they had and wrote new scenes around it. Carrie Fisher's family approved of them doing it. They flat out said Leia's performance will not be CGI. I wouldn't rule out the possibility of them using CGI to change her outfit if they wanted her scenes to look consistent. They may rotoscope her into an entirely different backdrop. But her actual performance will be real.

    I think Luke was the Last "Jedi" & Rey will be calling herself "Skywalker" in his honor.

    the rise of Meh.

    what? am I suppose to be excited over that Crouching Tiger Hidden Jedi move?

    can we please get a teaser trailer or actual trailer opening where she isn't breathing like she just ran a marathon and Luke voice over to go with it?

    I'll go see it. Because Star Wars.

    I don't think they would give it that title for an honorary member. Either it is named that for Force Ghost Luke or Rey is revealed as a Skywalker or Ben Solo has a redemption arch. I am hoping for one or both of the first two.

    Why y'all hating on Rose so much?

    Rose suffered from being in the worst storyline of TLJ but I don't get anything from the character that makes her the problem herself. I think being in a better plot line or in a supporting role Rose would be just fine. I'm curious to see how they use her in this film. Her new outfit looks like she might be in more of a command or tech position with the Resistance.

    They need to give Rey some strong lineage to explain why she can Mary Sue so easily. Like part Kenobi blood, part Palpatine. Or part Kenobi, part Skywalker. (Mara Jade was Kenobi's secret daughter.) haha! None of the drunkard crap.

    I think I would make her a Palpatine. And keep Kylo (the Skywalker lineage) evil. Up the evil factor on him. Please no redemption there. He killed Han, attacked his mother's spaceship. That boy needs some limbs chopped off and then to fall down a shaft into some lava. I like the idea of a Palpatine being the Jedi and the Skywalker/Solo being the Sith. Kylo can be jealous of her lineage and visa versa.

    The real Palpatine shouldn't come back in physical form. That would lessen Vader's moment in Return of the Jedi. He can be a clone or super strong Sith Force Ghost.

    Ideally, I'd like the Rise of Skywalker to refer to Luke rising from the "dead". And that should happen in the first 10 mins of the movie.

    They probably won't bring Luke back... but they should. If not, super Force ghost Luke and super Force ghost Palpatine can battle it out.

    In a perfect scenario, the movie would open with Luke helping Rey up from a fall on Ahch-to. She bumped her head and TLJ was all just a bad dream.

    Yes if they bring Palpatine back I want him a clone like in Dark Empire:

    Dear Hollywood,

    please refrain from using following words in your movie titles: 'rise', 'dawn', 'origins' and 'returns'.

    Thank you in advance.

    I want to see a film entirely about Lando and I want it to star Billy Dee Williams as a buff senior citizen reflecting back on his life, featuring amazing African-American actors in those flashback roles. We know something of Lando, but I think he has one helluva story to tell. Now there's a movie!

    I liked Kelly Ann alot. She deserved that standing ovation after the backlash that she got from a plotline that was beyond her control. Glad the room was full of the best of the fandom and not keyboard warriors.

    I've got the perfect title for that!

    'STAR WARS: Dawn of the rise of Lando- Origins (A Star Wars Story)'

    Jokes aside (not that that was a joke ), I'm really glad Lando's finally back in IX. His return is long overdue. Awesome to see Billy Dee again!

    I don't know if you had the chance to see the trailer for the upcoming video game: "Star Wars - Jedi Fallen Order". Honestly, I got more excited by that story than Episode IX, even with Palpatine's last laugh.

    My main concern is that Rey may be another child of the Force created miraculously by the midiclorians as Anakin was. Or created by Luke manipulating the midiclorians; or a clone of any other Jedi or even a clone of Palpatine... In any case, I think that they are in a deep mess that there would be no good explanation that shall suit for everyone, it would be the next topic of debate for years to come, haters vs fans, OT, Prequels and New Trilogy fans throwing opinions or justifications why "X" is good and/or bad.

    Ep IX title may indicate that her linage comes from Luke and/or Leia (hidden Ben's sister?), but I definetely don't want Kylo to redeem himself. He was shown killing his father, and even when everyone is entitled for revindication to repent their sins, I think that is not the kind of message I'd like to be included in Star Wars. Even when Anakin killed the Tusken and younglings, it was done off screen and serve the way to get to the bad guy that we originally met. I'd really like Kylo to be pure evil as the force of nature (or Dark Side of the Force nature) when he first appeared and stopped a laser blast in mid air by sheer power.

    He really is the worst villain ever. He is pretty indicative of what is going on in the world. Don't like someone or something? Throw a tainty and try to destroy them. When all else fails, scream at the sky :P

    Is this movie truly going to be the end of the main saga?

    I heard that there will be no more mainline entries after IX... but, side stories, prequels, tales, origins, etc. are still on the table.

    Calling it now, the last movie was last Jedi. Going forward Rey will start a new order known as Skywalkers.
