    Now I am intrigued.

  • Victor Roa

    Okay I’m shaking, that look Leia gives to Kylo is identical to Empire when Luke calls out to her. WOW!

  • M@rvel

    Damn that was a good trailer but I kinda feel like I saw too much….

  • Seth McDonald

    Amazing trailer.

  • SaiyanHeretic

    Damn, that was rad. Yeah it seemed to reveal a lot, but this movie is going to be an epic, with lots of twists and turns, so I’m not going to fuss about spoilers just yet.

    And the failure of Blade Runner 2049 shows what happens when you try to market a movie shackled by complete mystery…

  • Veteran

    Looks good.

    I feel like this trailer almost confirms the “Kylo Ren is a good guy” fan theory.

    (If you’ve never heard about it, it’s the theory that young Kylo Ren would have grown up hearing stories from Luke and Leia about how his grandfather redeemed himself, and was the guy who killed the Emperor when nobody else could. So when Snoke showed up, Kylo jumped to the natural conclusion that the only way to kill Snoke would be to get close to him, just as Vader did with the Emperor, by embracing the Dark Side.)

    The scenes right at the end of the trailer seem like they’re being all “uh-oh, Rey is turning to the Dark Side”, but are likely more of a “oh hey, yeah, I’m a sleeper agent, join the cause” bent.

  • Danny B

    yes….but it was always going to be yes…

  • Rolta

    I would like to get excited about this one, but then, knowing they brought JJ Abrams in to do Episode 9, even if this one is good it’s all going to descend into a badly directed dumb mess by the end.

    Those Trek fan films using OG actors are not bad. But this feels like fan fiction using OG and lame newbies to perform subpar storylines. Just because you have a topic toybox/sandbox doesn’t mean you know how to make the best of it. Rushed story dev led to abandoned scripts, diversity casting led to character shoehorning, and as a result, things feel forced. Ha. Too many shots feel compared composed like commercials are – too perfect – meant for showcasing and not narrative flow. Repeated ideas. Kylo smashing, Rey grimacing, Luke frowning, Chewie yowling, Leia staring. Dimensionality is showing NEW things, the unexpected, the reveal of character, not the replay of character. Walter White changes for like 9 seasons.
    There people live in a world of insane possibilities yet act like stick figures. If the big bad for nine films is an old white man, you’ve failed to imagine what could be. Thrawn, evil Force ghost of Plagueis in Clone Wars, the Sith Witches who are so fucking cool – even the wasted Darth Maul – all terrific possibilities thrown to the wayside for yet another old white dude with an ugly face pulling strings. Lame.

      He doesn’t look white to me senor. Kinda like a pinkish orange.

      • Fallout Boy!

        Reflection from those robes, dude. I can’t tell if that’s a racist statement or not lol. I WANT it to be good. But it’s not really kicking my ass.

      But the emperor from the OT was an in depth character, right? He was in ESB for maybe 15 seconds and in about 10-15 minutes of ROTJ and when the credits rolled we knew absolutely zero about him. The trailer looks fantastic and you can pick and pull at things in Star Wars all you want, they are all flawed movies, but it’s impossible to take you seriously when you whine about diversity and act like the trailer is ugly. If you don’t like it don’t go, nobody cares and it won’t hurt the movie, but you better get used to diversity little boy, the world is going to get more diverse, not less.

        Why is ‘diversity’ necessitated by the recognition of another group of people? Do you not understand the hypocrisy of the implied statement presumptively applied to – and arrogantly assumed by – caucasians – that ‘if we don’t ‘recognize’ ‘X’ then they can’t achieve said ‘recognition’ on their own?

        Show me the call for ‘diversity’ in the Asian community to recognize blacks? Furthermore, anyone born in America isn’t an ‘X-American’ – they’re simply American. If they don’t gra so this simple distinction, they’re missing the point. Show me an American-African? An American-Canadian? Any example? Do you not comprehend the nature of the Kool-Aid you’re imbibing?

        You’re being sold – via buying into – a false bill of goods. You always respond with the same thing. Because in your head you made up your mind to alleviate some phantom guilt. But the ‘diversity’ being alleged by Hollywood is a mask they’re purporting to be ‘diversity’, yet which is, in fact, DEMOGRAPHIC casting practices.
        Do you not realize that this is a MONEY-BUSINESS?

        How many times do I have to tell you that you are not seeing the first for the trees? The practice of color-casting is based on demographics, not ethnic concerns. Is this really difficult for you to understand? ALL the studio heads are white. Most of the major players are. You think that it’s a blessing or an achievement to have a person of ‘X’ ethnicity APPROVE of the hiring of some other ‘ethnicity’ so that they may somehow feel that they’re considered ‘included’?


        A show like ‘Fresh Off the Boat’ or ‘Blackish’ is the result of an approval process by a committee which is primarily composed of caucasians. This is your idea of progress? I’ll say it again: the root word of diversity is ‘divert’ – to turn away from each other’ – why do you think it’s not working? You can keep thanking Massa for his breadcrumbs, or you can awake up and smell the truth.

        Me ‘getting used to ‘diversity’ is meaningless – because the issue at hand has nothing to do with me – except in your limited thinking. All you have to do is read a non-liberal-politicized history book and you’ll see that people of all ethnicities have been making their way in America for generations. Stop pretending that the truth you seek isn’t already present for those willing to work hard. The only obstacles that exist are the ones on your mind. There’s literally not enough room here to list all the different people of fantastically carried ethnicities who have made a success of themselves in America. And it was their persistence that did it, not the ‘approval of the diversity committee’ that did it for them. Every time you post you say the same thing – that ‘diversity’ is here to stay. It already has been. Why do you think people want to live here? But your life-experience and education is obviously so limited – probably because of your age – that you don’t understand this.

    A lot of people on Reddit think this trailer is all misdirection. Nothing but Snoke and mirrors if you will.

    • Jeremy Alexander

      -slow clap- Probably a bit of it, but I sure hope that end twist is legit. If Ben were to turn away from Snoke and Rey would abandon hope of Luke training her for them to team up and become something new, that would be a ballsy decision and a good one, I think. E9 has to not just finish off this trilogy, but likely set up the next one, so the galaxy needs to change in pretty interesting ways moving forward.

  • Jeremy Alexander

    I think it’s an excellent trailer and should put all but the biggest internet hipster haters fears to rest about it being ESB redux. It clearly feels like it’s own thing. Can’t wait.
