Nowadays, the only times I pop in the prequel discs is to look at the deleted scenes and other materials - never to watch the actual movies - and, yes, that's real. Very real.

I changed my mind, I don't like Star Wars anymore. Sick of it.

Lets make something else.

Ha ha... Do you really think Disney would leave that field fallow for very long?

I almost want to invent a time machine so we can bring Joe McCarthy into the present, tell him Russians have infiltrated American society to an unprecedented degree, and see how long he takes to flip to a completely pro-Russian position because that's what all the fascists do now.

There's a leaked (?) Episode IX poster out in the wild, sans subtitle. Couple of spoilers in it if it's not a hoax, so exercise caution I guess?

I'm 50/50 on whether it's real.

It looks really safe and I hate the gross slug alien. I want it to be fake but it's probably real.

I haven't seen the poster, but after the Smash Ultimate final roster leak proved to be an elaborate fake I'm not jumping to any conclusions.

Livestream of the Episode 9 panel from Star Wars celebration. We'll probably get our first poster, first trailer, and the title.

Same. That’s not a great teaser & the title is really weird. I’m sure it’ll be fun anyway.

I guess I just don’t see anything that excites me that way VII and VIII did. And maybe the title will just take a while to sink in.

Yep.

E: The use of Skywalker as a proper noun (title?) instead of as a name is interesting.

Like all recent star wars teasers, this one tells us precisely nothing about the plot or themes of the film, so I'm looking forward to all the hot takes that claim how it is going to ruin the series!*



*I'm not actually looking forward to them.

I loved everything I saw but the title. Give that a little time and I might love it, too.

I think it would be effective if Rey takes on the Skywalker name, sort of being adopted into that legacy as a foil for Kylo, and Vader, casting it off.

To me this teaser feels aimed at people who thought that The Last Jedi was A Slap In The Face. That's definitely not me. I guess it sort of makes sense from a marketing perspective, because people who liked the previous movie probably don't need to be sold as much on the upcoming one.

(I'm not suggesting this implies anything about the movie itself.)
