The Rise of Skywalker & My Hope for a Strong Conclusion to the Saga

Daisy Ridley as Rey

I’ve been so busy waiting for Endgame and that It Chapter 2 Trailer I didn’t even realize we were getting Star Wars today. Of course my feelings about Star Wars have been mixed  recently so that could also be the reason.

I’ll be honest I thought the Last Jedi was an absolute disaster. Okay parts were pretty but the rest was just a dull mess of crap story-telling. It didn’t ruin my childhood but also no amount of people going on about subverted expectations has ever changed my mind. And unlike so many other stories in this situation it left me with no interest in the next movie save wondering what on Earth could be done with it…

And this December we come to the end of the saga with The Rise of Skywalker.

Honestly I’m more excited than I was which probably isn’t hard. But still good work on that I suppose!

Love him or hate him think he’s great or not J.J. Abrahams characters and his type of nostalgia has always appealed to me. I think when he’s on it usually is his characters for me. If he can bring back the characters that I loved (even in the Force Awakens I loved the new cast I left the Last Jedi genuinely unable to see myself sitting through another film with those idiots) if he can bring back the spark to them it will go a long way.

Although I will say if they brought Lando back just to kill him and Chewy like the rest of the original cast I’m gonna be furious. Let him take back his ship and ride off to Wookie land or wherever.

The only thing I’m not big on is the title and the surely endless theorizing about who and what it might mean to come…

Oh, who am I kidding? I’m totally going to do that to!
