    I'm pretty sure the success of the Star Wars films isn't determined by whether people go to see them 8 times at the cinema.

    A lot of fans would disagree

    Isn't the GoT one straight to TV? I'm sure I read something to that effect...

    If solo had been completely standalone it would have been an ok film, not amazing but itís alright. Itís big problem is every single thing that was apparently a major part of his life happened in about a week of his life and we knew how it turned out so tension and suspense is lost.
    There was just ZERO development for mr Solo. The same character from the start to end. What a disappointment.

    I can only echo what Not-a-reviewer said. They should have toned down the "let's give every single thing about Han Solo a backstory" bit.

    Other than that I enjoyed it as a straight up space pirate film. It's hard to separate it from the Sw line of films though since I think that
    a) the general knowledge of the universe (Empire bad) provided a nice backdrop
    b) who would put that much money into a no name space pirate film in 2018? (no one that's who)

    I think it shows the potential of telling stories in the SW universe that aren't necessarily about dealing fatal blows against the empire

    I also absolutely HATED the lite "cameo" at the end. It makes me FURIOUS every time I think about it. FUUUUURIOUS!

    Principle photography has completed on Episode 9. Now the wait begins for the teaser.

    Despite my low opinion of JJ I'm really looking forward to IX. Will be the first time I can take both my sons to a SW movie.

    I hope it's shock full of cute creatures.

    This is as good a thread as any...

    5 minute Star Wars Always short - a summary of the whole SW Saga in just 5 minutes. And it's pretty awesome :)

    Looks as though some retail promo images have leaked. Some interesting things in there if they are legit. Some new characters, some new ships, some new stormtroopers and looks as though weíre finally getting The Knights of Ren.

    Hopefully it won't be as dull as TLJ.

    I can't wait to see that retarded looking alien from Explorers make his debut.

    It's gonna be great.

    Itís the Episode 9 trailer today. Sometime between 4-5pm UK. Itís going to be...interesting.

    Was watching one of writers of /Film on a YouTube show and he was saying things heís heard about the trailer. Apparently itís going to be divisive. Not messing around here.

    J.J. is looking to not only close off this trilogy but the entire 9 episode saga and in order to do this he ďhas to do a few thingsĒ. Iím guessing they bring back Palpatine.

    @beastmaster
    What makes you think they bring back Palpatine? Is this a widespread rumour?

    I don't keep up with SW gossip.

    @thelzdking

    Yeah. But it was dismissed rather quickly as people didnít think heíd go there. But it could happen. Something really divisive but also crowd pleasing to round off all nine episodes. Seems the the most obvious thing.

    Another one is that Kylo Renís Vader obsession gets the better of him and he ends up wearing a Vader suit. Or Vader is somehow bought back. I think this is a bit too far out.

    But whatever it is, itís going to be in the trailer.

    Apparently it's 3 minutes of Chewie having aggressive sex with a CGI Carrie Fisher. Bold move.

    Decapitated Vader who became a ghost? Fell into a pit and exploded Palpatine?

    These sound like unlikely options.

    I want Palpatine to make his entrance wearing nothing but a pair of underpants made from the flayed skin of Han Solo's face.

    It will be early footage of Anakin telling of when Obi Wan used to finger him.

    I find it much more likely that Ren becomes Vader mk2 than Palpatine comes back.
