The title could be 'Trash' for all I care. What matters is I'm going to see it regardless of what the title is.

Way to break a pattern.

I'm really hoping Luke gets to show off how badass he is. Old Jedi in Star Wars just die after a few minutes of fighting.

Hopefully we will, it should be interesting to see how Luke's abilities have progressed in the years since Jedi

The folks at Lucasfilm and Disney have been fantastically good so far when it comes to protecting details regarding Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We know the name of the movie, but when they announced it we learned none of the rumored titles were accurate not even a plural Title referencing more than one Last Jedi ..... Still We know the names of many actors who are in the film, but we know none of the characters beyond the ones we've already met. They have yet to release any trailer for the film, so we have no idea what any of the movie will look like or what the story will actually be. Or do we?

Let's face it. When it comes to movies, more often than not, the stories fall into fairly predictable patterns. That doesn't mean they're bad, but if you've seen enough of them you tend to be able to figure out where a movie is going long before you get there.

Still heres hopin movies somewhat better than the Force Awakens...

The first teaser trailer is out. Looks like force training and an insane space battle are involved

It looks really good. Hopefully this puts to rest some of the complaints of the series being unoriginal.

Depends on how Luke trains Rey and if she decides to stick the middle finger to him, run off, and then loses a limb.

The loss of Carrie Fisher this past December rocked the world of entertainment, and is still being felt these many months later. The legendary actress/comedian/writer touched the lives of entire generations, and her So unfortunate passing has also had grave effects on the Star Wars franchise. General Leia was reportedly set to be a major role in Colin Trevorrow's untitled Star Wars: Episode IX, and now the film must be changed in order to work around Fisher's death. The Jurassic World and Book of Henry director has recently addressed how this would be done, and how the final film in the new trilogy would honor the late actress.

Reading One of the Local Newspapers I sell at my Store -

- Apparently one article caught my attention:-

Director Colin Trevorrow recently spoke to the Irish Examiner in order to publicize the poorly reviewed film The Book of Henry. But all roads lead to Star Wars, and he eventually opened up about how Episode IX would honor Carrie Fisher, saying:

Quote:
She had a major role in the film and it's something we had to deal with emotionally at first. Now we've had to deal with it in very practical ways and in a form of storytelling we know is going to honor her and keep her soul alive, but it is an unfortunate reality that we're just going to have to handle
Well, this certainly sounds hopeful. While Carrie Fisher's presence in Episode IX will be sorely missed, it's comforting to know that she (and by extension, Leia) will be felt in the film.

When the new trilogy of Star Wars movies was announced, the fans were eager to see the original trio of characters reprise their roles. And after J.J. Abrams' The Force Awakens, it became clear that each of the OG characters would be the main focus of one film. The Force Awakens was very much about Han Solo's final journey, and The Last Jedi appears to be largely a Luke Skywalker journey. So logically Episode IX was going to be Leia-centric film, until Carrie Fisher unfortunately passed away in December.

It should be interesting to see how Episode IX addresses General Leia's lack of screentime. Aside from Leia's personal relationships with Luke, Kylo, and Poe, she's also leading The Resistance. So the film will likely have to add some mcguffin to explain her absence. And as morbid as it sounds, I can't imagine any other reason other than killing the character off. With her family tied into the narrative of the films, there is simply no other reason why Leia would leave the cause behind.

But we'll have quite some time to wait until any of these answers are clear.
