    It isn’t a CGI Carrie Fisher. It’s unused footage.

    I want a CGI Rey. It'd look more believable.

    This is a truly, terrible, terrible, terrible title.

    Well, Ren is technically a Skywalker. But if they do the whole redemption crap again I’m also gonna have words.
    Also Leia isn't dead.
    Leia Organa-Solo. I'm going full pedant, here.

    Seriously, as has already been stated, that is a really terrible title.

    They might as well have called it Star Wars: Don't Worry, It's Not The Last Jedi, That Didn't Really Happen.

    Yeah it is. Though at the same time, I'm really intrigued by it because it Is provocative and seemingly questions what 8 said. Hopefully it plays with the fucking trolls and enrages them.

    Good trailer though. I really enjoyed 7 and for the most part 8 (though I can see some peoples pov about it, but I think it does some really good stuff) so I'm all aboard.

    Title is fine.

    Attack of the Clones is a terrible title.

    Cool stunt at start. Laugh at end had me mouth drop open.

    So much more too, such as busted ass bit of Death Star. Also looked like they were riding a Jabba skiff at one point.

    Reckon this’ll be a tour of the planets?
    Hmm, like Deathly Hallows? Need to rescue all the horcruxes to stop Kylo resurrecting him…

    Horrible name...

    All I can think is that the Jedi and Sith are over at the end of this film... all the force sensitive broom wielders are then called “Skywalkers” and bring the balance to the force at last....

    Will be on par with the Solo name reveal

    Still can't feel anything but complete detachment after 8. What a fucking waste that film was. Its telling that none of my mates that usually would do haven't shared it and after speaking to them, their reaction equates to a shrug of the shoulders. Looks alright though.

    Meh. Looks kind of worse than TLJ if anything. At least that had a few spectacular scenes it could draw on to put together a teaser. Will I go and watch it though, of course.
    Would you be a bit more whelmed if a paedophile was writing the score?
    He will love it with the penetration of the black holes and plenty of dark helmet touching

    Got a good feeling about this one. Better director, can't be any worse than The Last Jedi, and won't suffer from being the middle part of a trilogy.

    For a mere teaser trailer I thought it was decent too. Terrible name though agreed.

    Here’s hoping he can do the best with what’s left because tlj really didn’t leave things in a great place. Whereas tfa, was left in a fairly decent place.
    Tfa was a fun romp, here’s hoping it gets back to some of that.

    Isn't that the point of the second part of any trilogy? ;)

    You can't criticise the title, Star Wars titles have always been incredibly bombastic, as a homage to the serials and movies from the early days of film and telly.

    True, I just meant in my opinion it undid a lot of the good will the other had created. But none of this is new news.

    I know what you meant :) I'm hoping the same thing.

    They’re not though, are they? I thought that was specifically ruled out. They’re using footage they didn’t use when filming VII and VIII. I’m sure they will do some digital alteration to make it fit, but they’re not actually bringing Carrie Fisher back.

    Something like Spartacus perhaps? They all put down their brooms and start yelling: "I'm Skywalker..." "I'm Skywalker!" "I'M SKYWALKER!"

    It's pretty much fan fiction isn't it? Palpatine is back. Lando comes says "here goes nothing" and winks at the camera.

    @the_milkybar_kid Yup. Same as the other two. I've given up getting my hopes up with this shite.

    J. J. said they wrote the plot around her unused footage and got it to work. No CGI.

    Not a great title but will get people talking and speculating. As a teaser that was spot on imo.

    Daisy Ridley’s acting was all over the place in TLJ. Looks no different here.

    If you didn’t watch the panel then you wouldn’t have seen Ian McDiarmand appear after they showed the trailer and the lights came on to thunderous applause. “Roll it again!” in Palpatine’s voice. Fuck!

    Oh, it’s also been confirmed that there’s going to be a hiatus in Star Wars films after this one comes out.

    Calrissian and Palpatine might entice me to the cinema for this after the bore-fest that was TLJ.

    Pretty much: with all the "lighting the torch" in the TLJ.

    Yeah, I now see there are some lengthy articles out there touting this theory, something similar is in some of the extended universe books... So that may point away from them doing this I guess.. who knows.

    Rey will be the first to take the Skywalker name, so she isn't one but becomes one...
