    Granted TPM was a bit similar to ANH but at least AOTC and ROTS were somewhat original and added to the story. I wish TFA and TLJ had been more original and done something different.

    I'm a fan of the original trilogy since 4 for 33 years and that's the only trilogy that matters to me and Return of the Jedi which i have some problems with was the last good SW movie and i like the EU books/comics as well. Plus the despecialized editions of the classic trilogy on bootleg blu-rays which you can buy online and they look great.

    Who else would love to see Disney and Lucasfilm and Fox FINALLY release the unscrewed with original versions of the classic trilogy in stores even on UltraHD 4K BDs now that Lucas has finally changed his mind and deflated his ego?

    This is why fanboys hate the prequel's because they were not the OT no really? But these same people like the ST because they ARE almost exactly like the OT....

    See I post stuff that makes sense and these same people tend to "overlook" these facts because they would rather keep the hate going for whatever reason...It's really sad but whatever to each his own...

    I really don't get why people overlook how similar the ST movies are.
    Although there are a lot of other reasons why people had issues with the PT.
    But I still prefer the PT to the ST.

    Your never going to win that argument with some people....

    I think they purposely do this to start a fight or just to be a tool...

    First 40 seconds of the trailer is everything we love about SW. The rest...blah!

    Dark Rey is probably a dream or some nonsense to try to get butts in the seats. My butt is staying home.

    According to some rumours it isn't a dream.
    I hope the time travel rumours aren't true.
    Allegedly they are going to the remains of the Death Star so maybe they will be back on Endor so more Ewoks.

    I guess that picture from a while back with C-3PO holding Chewbacca's bowcaster is real then... Perhaps C-3PO gets angry like Johnny 5 in Short Circuit 2 and gets some upgrades.

    Maybe he gets the triple zero personality matrix.

    They show her looking sith like in the trailer. This means one of the following
    1) she doesn't end up as sith by the end. (how long will this movie be?)
    2) she does turn sith, Kylo goes good and that is what the rise of skywalker refers to.
    3) Since both are owned by Disney now, and the comic is published by them some Thanos snap, infinity stone crap puts star wars into the marvel multiverse.

    The trailer pretty much confirms that some of the spoilers leaked a few weeks back online seem quite true.

    I'll repost the 3-PO part of them here. EXTREME SPOILERS!!!

     

    The [removed to be less spoilerish ] coordinates are in C-3P0’s old memory unit in an abandoned Imperial blockade in a jungle world, where the heroes befriend the warrior Jannah (Naomie Ackie) and her people.
    After retrieving it, the heroes go to a decommissioned droid factory in a snow world to unlock it, where they are ambushed by the First Order and rescued by bounty hunter Zorii Bliss (Keri Russell) and her droid D-0.
    During the battle, the memory unit of a combat droid is uploaded into C-3P0, causing him to develop an aggressive personality and take Chewie’s bowcaster for himself.

    ***YADA YADA YADA***

    Rey and Kylo .... while the Knights of Ren battle Finn, Poe, Chewie and the droids.

    I really enjoyed the new video today. The highlights for me were the Resistance/Imperial fleets (those were definitely Imperial Star Destroyers and not the more modern First Order DS's we've seen); Leia; and Dark Rey. I've got two theories about the latter.

    1. It's a Dagobah-like Force vision - I think this is the most likely scenario.
    2. Dark Rey is a clone of Rey. There's supposed to be about a year between The Force Awakens/The Last Jedi and I think that, through movie magic and science-fantasy, we could easily see a clone of Rey grown to adulthood in that time; I've got nothing to back this up, but I would think that when the FO captured her they probably took blood/DNA samples from her when they processed her. How she is able to use the Force and that cool hinged lightsaber I've yet to figure out.

    I had to pull over on my way home from work yesterday so I could watch it. I am obviously a pretty big fan, so it goes without saying taht I am excited for this. I don't know what to make of Threepio or what some of the shots might mean, but Rey certainly looks different in those shots with the hinged saber. I'm not sure what to make of that, but I'm eager to find out in December!

    That was the whole point a "Easter Egg" like I stated but some people you know...

    And at least you know who he is instead playing funny about it...
