the thing is, the Force Awakens wasn't even that good. general consensus at the time was it was a promising start... but revisit it and it's really not that good. In other words, why would there be any expectation the third movie will be any good when JJ's first stab at it was no more than reasonable, and the second movie was complete shite?
I rewatched Force Awakens and it was shit! I don't remember it being as shit as it was, probably a cinema experience adds something but the overall film was a rip off.

I'm not sure where they go given the title. KR is bloodline but not Skywalker in name, if they spin Reys story now we need a great twist.

Palpatine as a Sith force be epic potentially depending on what they do with him. Hope they don't go down route he jumps host bodies - and was snoke.

Think JJ going to rewrite TLJ meanings.

Bringing back Palpatine now is indicitave of how sloppy and thoughtless these sequels have been and how utterly desperate the people responsible for the films must be. They just haphazardly bumped off Snoke who could have potentially been developed into an atg star wars character and are now left for the final installment without a proper arch nemesis/evil character worth bothering with. Kylo Ren has been in emotional turmoil pretty much throughout so they can't start now developing him into true evil so now there fucked and are having to bring back the emperor. Desperate as fuck.

What a colossal balls up these sequels have been. I honestly think that in time the prequels will be held in higher regard.
Yep. Shit trailer too, it showed nothing other than a pointless cheesy scene and lots of people standing gazing into the distance. I was so fucking hyped for The Force Awakens, and initially liked it. It got worse over time, but was okay. Rogue One was fucking great and has remained excellent, so I was hyped even more for The Last Jedi. That film was the worst sequel to any franchise that I've ever seen. Shat on the canon in its entirety, was fucking cringe worthy with totally out of place humour, awful subplots, sickening SJW crap thrown in, to what is supposed to be sci-fi fantasy, not preachy bollocks about 2017 campus politics.

It was such an abortion of a Star Wars film that I won't bother going to watch this one, which judging by the lazy trailer giveaway is a good thing. Like you said, the final film has no main baddie, so they're just going with "bring back the Emperor". So what the fuck was Snoke? They've had no idea who was what from the start, they're just making it up as they go along. What were the flashbacks Rey had in TFA? Will we ever find out? Who was Snoke then? It's going to be 3 films that are riddled with plot holes, and that rip up the original trilogy's law and stories.

I wanted to be hyped for this but I'm not the last movie killed the franchise for me. I liked Force Awakens but the Last Jedi took a huge dump on the first movie and the franchise as a whole. I know they've gotten JJ Abrams back for the 3rd film but he's got his work cut out on this 3rd film to overcome the hatchet job the 2nd film did on the story he laid out in Force Awakens.
Rian Johnson should be shot for TLJ. There's never been a film that has shat on an existing franchise/universe more than his pathetic excuse for a film.

I can't help get exited about this in my naive hopes of Abrams being able to fix the abomination of a job Rian Johnson did in the second one something that is pretty impossible to do honestly no matter how well he does it it's never going to feel fully satisfactory.

Castle Duckula.
Love a trip to the cinema at Christmas time. It has been very hit and miss over the past few years. I'll go see this, but with only a litle hope for what it ma bring.

At one point Star Wars was going to be the next big gthing with countless films and TV shows. Is that still happening or did TLJ kill it off.

I have a theory Rey is Anakin reborn. And Kylo then will join her in taking down the emporer because he has uncle issues.

That way anakin but not anakin but really a girl can save us all.
I same idea before TLJ, but hope that's not the backstory - because if it is palpatine will be behind it no doubt.

The same way WWE has to constantly recycle and cameo Attitude Era stars from a bygone past due to not developing sufficiently interesting modern stars, Star Wars has to rely on the perpetual bringing back of characters and sets from the superior movies and to cash in on pitiful nostalgia of fat aging nerds.
That's a great analogy.

The prequels had their problems; not the least of which was George Lucas' involvement, but compared to this trilogy they're cinematic gold. I can't think of a single scene from FA or TLJ that even comes close to the Podracing in Phantom Menace or the Battle of Geonosis in Attack of the Clones.

As an old school hardcore fan that had read the books, the new series are trash. I just pretend that they don't exist. There were so many amazing story lines they could have chosen from but they just made up some trash story that basically cancelled out 100+ books.
