The Sequels will be worshipped like the Prequels are by those who grew up with them today and the new one will be condemned left and right by "older fans".

And since tickets are not expansive at my age where I live, unless the film is a disaster (And I doubt it'll be) I'll probably see it twice at least.
Prequel trilogy actually added stuff. And it had actual story. Sure there are some differences, because of what technology allowed them to do before and after original trilogy., but there is still continuity there.

Disney trilogy is...Force Awakens copy of New Hope..and no one can deny that. Last Jedi doesn't even bother to follow,what Force Awakens did and there's no denying that either.

And Disney trilogy is all based on nostalgia....bring back old cast, ruin their characters and promote old characters, because christmas time+ nostalgia= money.....and all their new characters are trash.

There is more buzz around Palpatine alone than Rey,Finn,Poe,Rose and every new character from Disney Trilogy COMBINED.

But like I said...people can go wave their SW flags and buy into hype....and buy all those babby "Yoda's" . And go see movie and tell themselves it's not trash.....

Perhaps there's a lesson in it for you, that not everything needs to be put out on the internet. Sometimes it's better to keep things just to yourself, I bet that attitude saved me from unnecessary embarrassment more than once!
Well I convinced you to go see it multiple times so easy,right?

And when you'll watch it in cinema...you'll hear my voice without me actually being there. Every scene,that it'll be bad...you'll hear in back of your head me saying it's trash. While I'll sit at home and laugh at all the rage epiosde IX will bring. All those die hard fans,who have defended Force Awakens and Last Jedi so far...oh it'll be so funny to read and watch them.

Even Legoland knows what is up. They are removing SW miniatures after January 6th 2020....and movie comes out December 20th 2019....do the math.

Lol, you think you're that relevant? I'll likely completely forget your existence by this evening, let alone episode IX's release date, but okay, whatever floats your boat, mate.

It's troublesome that you're so spiteful that you wouldn't want other people to enjoy things. What people like and don't like is not for you to decide, you know, that's their own business. I would wish someone "enjoy yourself" when they would go see something they're excited for, but then again, I might be too mundane for this world.

I personally don't care to much if I see it when it comes out, however I do believe people should go and enjoy themselves if they want to watch it.

My opinion is that every SW movie Disney has made is garbage, but that's just my opinion, and everyone else can decide for themselves what they like.

Lol, that thread.

Don’t worry, there’re plenty of circumstantial evidences that IX won't be a huge success.

  • According to Google statistics, the interest to the movie is not that high.
  • Based on multiple defensive statements made by Iger, KK, Abrams and others, they’re not so sure their movie is a masterpiece and keep pointing at each other (“…and then, you know, JJ came up with that amazing idea!”, “It was actually George’s idea, believe it or not!”).
  • Based on the fact that new shots and TV spots keep confirming JediPaxis’ script which is the embodiment of horrible writing… well, lots of fans will probably not go to theatres to rewatch it. Same as TLJ.

Relax and enjoy massive butthurt.

Actually they do. They cancelled Benioff and Weiss' movies, and Rian's trilogy is a Schrödinger trilogy; their statements about it are extremely vague. It's obvious they're focused on TV shows now.

The Prequels "added" a lot of concepts which were only developped and realized in supplementary materials.
Quick question: Can you tell me, without mentioning the Clone Wars episode on the subject, exactly what was the structure of the Separatist movement and their demands? Answer: You can't, it's not in the movies. Any of them.

TFA does copy a lot of moments and concepts of ANH but it remixes at lot of it, shifting the context and the intention behind it. It's a matter of personal appreciation. I thought it was an enteraining movie but it lacked ambition and scope.
Saying that The Last Jedi didn't follow on TFA is non-sense. Everything that happens in the movie is coherent with TFA, just not what YOU expected to see happen. All of the characters arcs follow through logically (Except Rey's family longings considering she more or less had found a place at the end of TFA), the events are a logical follow through (Resistance evacuation, Luke having given up being already said by Han, etc...).

And saying the Sequels are reliant on nostalgia when the Prequels litteraly reduced the galaxy's scope to a village FOR NOSTALGIA'S SAKE is hilarious. Yes, having Anakin being 3PO's creator is nostalgia bait, Jango Fett is nostagia bait, having clone armors look so similar to Stormtroopers IS NOSTALGIA BAIT.

And if you actually bothered to read subreddits around Star Wars, especially Leaks and Cantina, you'd notice that people theorize a lot more about the new characters than Sheev. But considering your discourse is basically SaltierThanCrait's on steroids... I don't expect you to actually read up on opposing opinions.

And thanks for authorizing me to fool myself into believing I'll like the movie. Next time I'm unsure what my opinion is supposed to be, I'll be sure to laugh at you then make up my own mind.

Keep wallowing in your negativity, scream at those monsters from Disney and cry when they keep making well received movies. I'll hit you up in ten years when the Sequels are being positively compared to the new movies.

And since my sub is running out I won't post again so let me conclude: Thanks for the laughs, I'll definitely forget about you by this evening and not think about you when going to see The Rise of Skywalker.

They want Jon Faverau to direct 1st movie, Dave Filloni second. They have plans. JUst because they removed those, doesn't mean they stop.

I don't care what George Lucas had planned. He sold out. I don't have shirne at home, where I worship him. He bent his knees many times to toy sales....and that is what this franchise is best at...selling toys. Well not anymore.

Critics will already give this movie 9/10....maybe even an 8/10. And shills will hype it up, so that parents will take their kids to see it.

You might forget about me now...but when you'll sit in cinema...even before movie will start, you'll think about me.

Only thing I'm spiteful about is that I hope they make less then 500 million in total. Realisticlly I think movie will make 700-800 easily, because of all hype,how it's the LAST MOVIE and STAR WARS ip and then might struggle to 1 billion. But I also think it'll break 1 billion in total.

Everyone has their own taste...but one day people will be like..."all they care about is money"....and they'll start voting with their wallets.

Compelling argument, do go on!

Oh and on the Separatist thing, that's not an answer.
My question was: How does an alliance of thousands of planets justify it's war against the Republic and maintains political cohesion. And that's not in the films.
Sure, Palpatine "controls" the Separatists but that doesn't explain how billions of people chose to break from the Republic.

EDIT: Also, you're not good with sarcasm and snark, are you? Like, you take everything at face value and run with it.
You REALLY think I intend to talk to you in ten years about the Sequels? Did you think I was serious? At all?
I mean, I know you have a rather high opinion of yourself but... come on! A blind person could read the irony in that statement.

Nope. You're just not relevant enough to remain in my memory, sorry :P
