    Oh, and Rey tells Ren that her parents were nobody. Ren asks if she knew who her parents were. He says that she knows the truth, deep down, but has hidden it from herself. “Say it,” he quietly but firmly asks. She doesn’t need long to search her feelings. “They were nobody.” Ren only confirms what Rey had always known but was afraid to admit. It was not a lie. She is not a Skywalker. And that doesn’t matter one fucking bit now. Rey and Ren share more than just similar names. They are both orphans. It’s the _how_ that makes all the difference. It’s even richer than that. Never knowing her father or mother, she embraced Han Solo and came to love him like a father. And she watched Ren as he made an orphan of them both.

      Luke Skywalker’s destiny changed the moment he saw and heard Princess Leia—not her, but a ghostly holographic residue of her carried in this quirky little droid. I would not be surprised if we learn that Kylo Ren’s destiny changed by a hologram of his grandfather’s Sith Master. Maybe it was coincidence. But what in this saga is coincidence? Everything is connected by the Force and by those powerful enough to use or manipulate it. Maybe Snoke showed Ben Solo a holograph of Sidious. However it happens, it would be faithful to the spirit of the saga for a person’s destiny to begin with something as simple as a holographic message that calls a character, for good or ill, into a larger world. What is more _Star Wars_ than that? I doubt Palpatine is still physically alive, but I do think he is still the phantom menace, casting his shadow even now over this ancient, far away galaxy.

      And maybe the title refers to this threat: who will determine the ultimate destiny of this galaxy? The darkness of a Palpatine or the light of a Skywalker?

        So we are supposed to buy the fact that Luke actually trained Rey in the last film, No, no, I would love to believe that Lukes words of passing all we know onto Rey was believable, but in the last film all he did was tell her to go away, and told her a few things she already knew, As for Rey, she doesn't deserve to be that powerful, she hasn't struggled and her character is trash, this new trilogy is so pointless in its lazy rehashing existence, it doesn't build upon anything and just feels like an inconsistent mess, but hey thats just how I feel

          Apparently the leaked spoilers say the emperor will only appear as a hologram message

                  There are Jedi ghosts. Why not Sith (Palpatine) ghosts?

                    I don't agree with some of your opinions. I feel like we are opposites on what we like. But I admire your high-quality videos and that you offer me contrasting opinions. Personally, I think Palpatine is a bit of fan service and thats JJ Abrams for you and yet we need it. Last Jedi roasted the fan fiction and at first, I was into that. I welcome some of Rian Johnson's pushing back but we need to get back to the DNA of Star Wars. I have a theory of how Palpatine comes in I think it is a very small role at the end but I believe he serves as a Red Skull character in the opposite way. Rey needs to defeat a higher power then Kylo and Sidious I believe is key. I loved seeing Lando in the Falcon. I overall like the trailer but it had a few meh points. The Star Wars version of North by Northwest feels a bit goofy.

                      Hmmmm 🤔 maybe the rise of skywalker is the new Jedi name . The theology of Luke uses his own religion as his last name . And maybe Rey is a dna clone from Luke’s Hand 🖐 which means she has skywalker blood . I dunno 🤷‍♂️ only a 💭

                        I want Anakin and Luke back in their force ghost forms. One for Rey, and one for Kylo.

                            Real fans call b.s. on that scene where Kylo's lightsaber fails to slice thru that soldier. Can't believe all the reactions I've seen have failed to point this out.

                              In the trailer? He stabbed him with the guard. That wouldn't ever "slice thru"

                            3:24 C3PO is still around. He was built by Anikin which technically makes him a Skywalker.
                            3PO IS A JEDI CONFIRMED!!!

                              We've been here before. Disney is far better at making trailers than actual movies. I'm not getting excited until I see the actual movie.

                                    Also not a huge fan of the title at all! Perhaps Palpatine will be in a Sith Holocron/hologram or a Sith force ghost.

                                      A few things...I think Skywalkers can definitely be the name of a new breed of force users similar to grey Jedi who have found balance in the light and dark side of the force. Also I’d prefer Rey to be either related to or be created by Palpatine. It be a nice contrast with Kylo who was created from the light between Leia and Han. Also I definitely think that’s Endor and not Yavin in the trailer.

                                        I know that I’m going to see this. But I’m not necessarily excited, and I feel bad for it. I found myself significantly more excited by the game and clone wars trailers.

                                          And Palpatine is the mastermind pulling the strings behind EVERY other movie, why not the last three?? lol ties things up nicely if done correctly. This could have all been part of his grand plan.... we'll see

                                            Skywalker could become a title or new order

                                              Would honestly be surprised if we didn't see Anakin's Force ghost, with a title like that. and Seeing as we saw Yoda in the Last Jedi

                                                    I don't like the title. It feels too much like some apologetic "giving the fans what they want"
                                                    Though, I love everything they've been doing with it. TFA and TLJ. And I trust JJ, he was surprisingly subtle and attentive to details in TFA, so I'm sure it'll be alright

                                                      It's probably the second Death Star on Endor, if the trailer isn't misdirecting us and the Emperor laughter is connected to it.

I mean, Revenge of the Sith was the best of the prequels and managed to wrap up that whole trilogy pretty successfully in my opinion - perhaps Rise of Skywalker has the potential to do the same for this trilogy.

                                                                  I just hope it manages to stay unique, so we don't have a Jedi rehash, but not so unique that it loses the SW feel like The Last Jedi. Palptine's return could really give this trilogy a chance to connect to the rest of the saga, because in my opinion it's always felt so...separate from the others. Fingers crossed it'll be good.

                                                                  • Drifto-kun

                                                                              I didn't mind Boba Fett coming back since it's not that much of a stretch given that he's hyped up but also people die slowly in the Sarlaac. And as much as I think Dark Empire had interesting ideas and concepts - the Emperor's return was not one of them. If this is their angle in the new film and he IS indeed back then I have to question their decisions on this.

Just another fancy action shot.. Billy Dee back made me smile... Then ....I had to rewind and relisten... Did I just hear palatine? Then I grinned 😊
