    Never a real fan of this guy. His main thing; lins flares, are all annoying. You mainly only see them when you look at certain lights, and if you wear glasses. But he wears glasses too.

            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. 😕

                  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.

                                        Milkywolf Z It’s not about Luke anymore. Ben is the Skywalker if this trilogy

                                      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

                                              My guess is they’re gonna make it so Rey basically renames “Jedi” to “Skywalker”. Would fit with the last movie being “the Last Jedi” and immortalizing the Skywalker name.

                                              Thrawn mentioned to Vader(trying to troll him into admitting he was Anakin) how the force sensitive Chiss were called Skywalkers. Considering the skywalker saga is concluding and keeps emphasizing a new order based on balance that the new order will be called Skywalkers
