Going into this trilogy I had a small hope that Lucas secretly shot footage during Return of the Jedi for a potential ST that would be used in these films, to take us by complete surprise.

It seems like the last couple weeks have essentially gotten us to a pretty solid place in terms of basic plotting and motivation for the movie.

The most intriguing thing to me, honestly, is the idea that the movie might not start with the main title and scroll, but a flashback following the “A long time ago” card, and then smash cut to the main title at the end of the flashback, like Rogue One.

I felt disturbance in the fandom, as if a few thousand exclaimed, “THE SACRED CRAWL TEXT!” and never silenced.

I would love to see a flashback scene to help clean up the messes in The Last Jedi. Something like LOTR: Two Towers had at the beginning with Gandalf battling the balrog. This could help give Luke the respect he deserves.

And yes, the “sacred crawl text” needs to be present in the final film of the Skywalker Saga.

The poster that leaked a couple months ago is official. Some pictures of it can be found on new TROS merchandise yet the only change I’ve noticed is one that was pointed out to me and it’s Rose Tico in place of the weird alien Klaud

Green is not a creative color

Despite some of the marketing for the film showing Ben wearing his mask, including the leaked poster, most of it shows him without the helmet, just like how The Last Jedi marketing was.

Which basically confirms everyone’s suspicions that it’s not the theatrical poster, but merchandizing art.

I don’t quite understand this thread?

Is this a spoiler thread?

It seems more like a speculation thread.

Just about everything is out now.

There are two spoiler reports. One from the guy at MakingStarWars and one from a guy calling himself JediPaxis.
They are quite similar, but there are a few very big differences coming from JediPaxis that will cause major problems within the fandom. MAJOR. HUGE.

It may even make Rian Johnson less loathed by putting Abrams in that seat.

Personally, I loathe both, so it doesn’t really matter.

Some people are fussy where they get their spoilers from. One of those sources used to take pot shots at this site on a regular basis, so there’s that.

If you want to post or link to spoilers, go ahead, but cite your sources.

The only true trustworthy spoiler source for TROS is RedLetterMedia. According to them, we will get time travel and it will get Endgame treatment! For my speculation, Than… No, Palpatine wants to harvest all Skywalker lightsaber crystals, and once he has all of them… He will become the most powerful Chosen One in the galaxy! Meanwhile, Rey and the gang have to figure out how to beat Palpatine at his own game and collect these crystals before he does! Time is of the essence to prevent Palpatine from Snap! Crackling! And popping his… old joints. (it’s a long time ago in a galaxy far far far away, so I don’t think they invented infinity gauntlets)

Or I’ll just wait for a more solid trailer to come out.

RedLetterMedia is also very well known for trolling with their fans, but not in a dirty way, more of a humorous way.

No. I promise you that is not the movie.

What appears to be going around is two spoiler reports.

One is from that Jason guy at Making StarWars. The second is from a guy at Reddit going by name JediPaxis.

Quite a bit of what J/MSW posted seems to match up to an old 4Chan link from quite some time ago.

Then this JediPaxis posted his spoiler report. A lot of it matches up to the J/MSW report, but there are differences. Some of those differences are big.

Anything exciting/to look forward to? I know I could look it up, and I know this is the spoiler thread, but I kinda don’t want to read all the details but also one of those situations where I won’t be too flustered if I caught some spoilers.

Hmmmm…

I don’t know how to answer?

Are you interested in a specific character?

Is there a rumor that you heard that you may want to be true?

Oh I meant just vaguely. Like do you personally think this will be a really weird, or awful, or inventive, etc way to end this trilogy? Asking since apparently Abrams is wanting be less orthodox with this installment, even more so than Rian Johnson. Unless that’s just a rubbish rumor too.

‘Earlier Josh asks Daisy if she ever played as Kira before J.J. decided to change her character’s name to Rey, and she says yes. She shot scenes in Abu Dhabi as Kira for a few weeks before they opted for a different name. #TheForceAwakens’ - https://twitter.com/sleemo_/status/1145878466312757248

 

There is also some information on the title of Episode IX - and what it could mean too…

More info here on the ‘Happy Sad Confused’ podcast - with Daisy Ridley, titled… ‘Daisy Ridley, Vol II’, on Spotify (so you’ll likely need an account - or to register - to listen to it?):-

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Was reading some pretty detailed leaks about the plot today and for better or worse this very much sounds like a JJ Abrams movie. I’m excited to see it on screen. Still haven’t seen much on the third act but it seems it won’t be long till that’s up online too.

I’m happy with what has been described of Leia’s role, seems like it will be the best they can do given they have to recycle old footage.

If JJ can nail the feeling of TFA, respect what was built up in TLJ, and create a truly original plot than I think I’ll be pretty happy.

I can agree with that, Eman. The supposed leaks suggest an awfully convoluted plot, so I hope it doesn’t feel super rushed.
Seems to me that viewing Episodes I through VIII in order would lead one to expect IX to function as something of an epilogue rather than a bombastic conclusion, since there hasn’t been anything much specific being built up to.

PM me for links to my edits; apparently, some feel shy about this.

Could be really weird. Some scenes/things going on are out there. I mean, right off the bat, there are two MacGuffins.
IMO, a lot of what is out there, if true, is not good. Despite claims of a lot of nostalgia, a couple of things could really anger OT fans.
Inventive? No. That’s not Abrams. He takes from others.

Friday.
I’m expecting Matt Smith stuff. If not, something’s going on.

Really? If the final battle stuff is true, it’s ideas taken from early ROTJ scripts.

More stuff was acceptable from the Jason/MSW spoilers. I had many issues, but it was the better of the two.

Nothing against JediPaxis. He is doing those of us who want to know a solid. A good guy. And as they say, you don’t kill the messenger. But is it good?

And now MSW seems to be coming over and supporting more of the JediPaxis stuff. The only conclusion can be that his information, for better or worse, is more accurate.

Jason/MSW basically saying that Matt Smith is not in the film at all.

Strange.
