Can I just point out this is the "NO SPOILER" thread and that Taf post spoils potentially two big things that people wouldn't know about if they're avoiding the trailers? :shifty:

Spoiler suggests that'll it'll spoil your experience, though.

You're best off knowing that potential gooseberry fool going in, so as to soften the disappointment if it does indeed turn out to be the case.

Yep, this is the least excited I have been about a mainline film too.

I think it's going to be an absolute mess, moreso if a lot of the speculation surrounding is true. It all sounds a bit like the old EU to me, and in my eyes, the bast majority of that read like bad fan fiction when it came to plotting and characters.

The posters are generally always pretty cool.

Same artist has also done ones for the other two trilogies in the same style...

Not got a lot of hope for Rise of Skywalker but hopefully going in with low expectations will be a good thing.

More examples in the comments.

Rose was one of the worst characters in a movie of terribly written characters - but to single her (maybe no one was buying Rose action figures, but to airbrush her out of group material? really/) out for this treatment given the backlash the actor faced (in large parts in no way related to the character but more unpleasant indiviudals opinions) feels like a bad move.

I thought her character was ok, her on screen sister did more in a few minutes than she did on 2 hours. However, in interviews, much like Daisy she comes across as charming and so happy to be doing star wars. Hopefully her next few films are great and she can get herself known for her talent and not just being in a few crap scenes in a average movie.

Wish my image sig would work

I'm definitely interested in how RoS will explain Sith Troopers, considering the Sith are extinct. Are they connected to Palpatine? Are they force sensitive? Why would they be loyal to Kylo and The First Order, a non Sith group? What's the connection?

Or are Disney just painting Stormtroopers red and calling them Sith (as opposed to Knights of Ren) to sell toys, which is the most likely explanation.

I'd like to believe otherwise, but yep it's going to about toys and nothing else.

Just thinking about it for a second, the very idea of "Sith Troopers" is ridiculous. We don't have Jedi Troopers, because that would be equally stupid. Who approved that decision? :fp:
