    It screams of them knowing they've bungled up the entire trilogy and Palpatine's return is a lazy way of retconning and trying to bring back jaded fans.

    The worst part of the trailer was Threepio saying he wanted to take one last look at his friends... Whom he's shared the screen with maybe for a handful of scenes and said maybe a dozen words to. Its so cloying and phony in the trailer like they trying to convince us the new cast is anywhere close to the legendary original cast that they're equal to Threepio. What a joke.

    Honestly I really don't think Palpatine is really back. There's some extended universe stuff that I think they're going to use here to bring him back without bringing him back. I don't really want to say as if I'm correct it could be a spoiler.

    Are you referring to the Dark Empire story?

    No I'm referring to the new cannon stuff. For anyone that's interested, this is what I'm referring to.

    I'm afraid the Emperor will be quite operational when the final movie arrives.

    ‘Star Wars’ Setback: ‘Game Of Thrones’ Duo David Benioff & D.B. Weiss Exit Trilogy


    EXCLUSIVE: David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the duo who in 2011 launched the singular screen sensation known as Game of Thrones, have walked away from their much-publicized deal with Disney’s Lucasfilm to launch a feature film trilogy in 2022.

    Benioff and Weiss were supposed to usher in the post-Skywalker era of the Star Wars brand with a 2022 new-start story that would stake out a new frontier for the era-defining cinema brand created by George Lucas. The Emmy-winning pair cited their historic deal with Netflix. They said their enthusiasm for Star Wars remains boundless but, regrettably, their schedule is full up.

    And it seems as though Rian Johnson may not be doing his trilogy either. The future of Star Wars is as miserable as its present and its recent past. Ouch.

    Just watched the first Ep. A solid and promising start. Obviously more limited in budget than a feature length film, but they did a fine job making it feel cinematic. More light hearted than I expected, which is a good thing. A couple of eyerolling moments, but I was sold enough on the rest that I forgave them.

    Could I ask what eye rolls you gave? I know some would say The self destruct part I found it to be so 80’s but for me it was super charming. Lol
