    Clueless interviewer.

    An easy way to get JJ Abrams panicking is simply mentioning ... "It is canon that Palpatine(dark lord) knowingly created Anakin(slave from desert planet) and turned him so he would not become the Chosen One.

    Anakin is a palpaitne.

    Skywalker means "The Chosen One."

    Snoke created Rey.

    The Rise of the new Chosen One.

              Don’t watch these shit movies. Stick to the eu. Because Luke Skywalker rebuilds the jedi order and has a beautiful wife.

                  The title rise of skywalker is very simple like some of you have put in here. It means skywalker was the last Jedi. He died. But Rey is the last survivor of the skywalker teachings there for he lives on in her.

                  In true canon though to become a true Jedi master you must create your own light saber. And Sith are a little different they can pick and choose a saber as long as it’s red. They must manipulate jedis blade to turn the crystal red. I hope this is in the new movie. Also stop putting Rey in those stupid outfits. She needs a more Jedi Knight attire. If JJ misses out of these key issues. I believe this movie will be a waste of time.

                          @Whisper It's just that when Force Awakens came out, everyone was praising it. Then after awhile, people started shitting on it. Now people are mixed about JJ directing Rise of Skywalker.

                          wouldn't say people really hate him. But a lot of fans don't have confidence in him to make a good ending.

                        Look, I'm still not interested in this movie, The Last Jedi and Han Solo left an extremely bitter taste in the mouth. I did not see anything else on this treiler, except for the end when I hear Palpatine's laughter (I think it's him) but I have no idea who Skywalker will be, after all they've killed everyone (Kylo Ren is actually Ben Solo, of SOLO's lineage).

                        Only if Ray is a Skywalker, but then changes what was said about her and about the fact that anyone can awaken STRENGTH.

                        I still have hyper ZERO in this last movie, and another of course they would put a new villain, Kylo Ren and a little bit of shit, would never cause fear in the public.

                              "The Rise of Skywalker' is metaphor for the films hero's bringing balance back to the force. How the force got unbalanced is beyond me. 😕

                                Old question.

                                Basic difference in how Jedi and Sith see things.

                                Jedi are the typical hippie bullcrap artists about We Are All One.

                                Sith are more like Connan the Barbarian about what is best in life.

                                In THEORY, once you go too far one path, the Force itself will screw you over and self correct.

                              I get the feeling that the sequels are sort of self-allegorical of themselves and Star Wars in general.

                                According to Kennedy the title means nothing??? Surely they can’t throw such a title in, getting everyone going mad with theories for it to turn out to be nothing??
                                Let’s be honest we all know how that backfired in TLJ. Not once, not twice but 3 times. If they shit on fans like that again they may as well just stop making Star Wars because it turn literally tens of thousands of
                                Fans, probably more, permanently away from the franchise.

                                              I agree with some of the other comments - I think ‘skywalker’ will be the new name for ‘jedi’ - hence the rise of skywalker

                                                I want the Skywalker in the title to be Luke.
                                                I want Luke redeemed after episode 8.
                                                Luke would never ever ever raise his lightsaber to a child, no matter how much dark side hey had in them.
                                                Especially since he was the one who redeemed Darth Vader.

                                                plot twist rey is luke and leia's incestual love child, therefore she is a skywalker. the reason they abandon her was to hide the fact that she was a child of incest. makes sense right.

                                                  I'm betting it's going to deal with how the Skywalkers came into being which ultimately comes back to Palpatine. I don't think it's meant to be literal

Considering the skywalker saga is concluding and keeps emphasizing a new order based on balance that the new order will be called Skywalkers

                                                              Does anyone actually believe Disney is going to end all this with Episode 9? I'll be shocked if Star Wars Episode 10 isn't out by 2024

That just didn't feel like the Luke we know and love and there was no badass lightsaber battle which was a big let down for me ! JJ please bring him back !
