    Unfortunately, I don't have much faith in this upcoming movie, only finishing it because of the trilogy.
    I have very little faith in it as well, and will similarly be watching it solely to see the trilogy wrapped, and out of sheer curiosity to see how JJ manages to unfuck everything he was trying to set up with 7, but which Johnson proceeded to completely disregard. I imagine there's going to be a lot of retconning going on with this movie.

    Either way though, I'm in a similar "fuck it" mode going into 9. I'm no longer invested in these characters or this world, and after 9, I have no intention or desire of ever watching anything new Star Wars that comes out afterwards. This is gonna be where it ends for me, 'cause I'm completely spent on this franchise. It shoulda just been 6 damn movies.

    I found this very confusing until I read up on it. (I haven't seen "Solo.") This is a good explanation of how that happened & it fits neatly within the established Star Wars universe, even it's far fetched: []

    But I'm still not sure how you get from there to [

    Also should add I'm not terribly invested here one way or the other, just playing around with some ideas because it's Monday night and I am horrendously bored.

    Lol. This is exactly what JJ said when he signed on direct. It's a direct quote: "fuck it".

    Just for fun- I re-watched their Force Awakens Prediction Video – done after the trailers were released. They were pretty spot on. They even got the RT score right.

    1. Distance from Prequels – No callbacks / Nothing from Prequels (no Gungan, Long Neck Clone Maker)
    2. Rey: “I see lots of Luke parallels” – Scavenger and tinkerer
    3. “I’m going to follow the words of George Lucas- it rhymes like poetry”
    4. “It would be really confusing and irritating if they make it another desert planet. I’m going with tattooine"
    5. Kylo Ren: “Darth Vadar cultist” “Son of Han Solo and Princess Leia” “Theme of family”
    6. Definitely want to keep Hann and Leia involved in the story as much as possible. Revolve around their kids.
    7. Kylo has gone “I’m obsessed with the dark side”
    8. Finn:
    a. Opening of the film doing some kind of secret covert ship on a star destroyer
    b. One guy gets captured (poe)
    c. One guy escapes (Finn)
    d. Emperor blows up his tie fighter
    e. Crashes into the desert where he meets Rey (just like C3PO and R2)
    f. Finn is a red haring – not a force sensitive jedi / not going to be the Jedi Knight, definitely will be the girl
    9. Mcguffin: “Trying to track down Luke”
    10. “Luke is trying to hide- making the Jedi passing to myth. Jedi too dangerous, more trouble than they are worth, willing to let the force thing fall into myth, “he knows he’s the last Jedi”
    11. Need a new villain. Almost need to go with Luke or someone completely made up (Snoke) “Need an evil wizard” “Andy Serkis will be a secret Sith”
    12. “There’s another death star” – Where is the new Death Star – We know JJ Abrhams likes blowing planets up so the new death star will reveal itself inside a planet. The finale will be the ice planet.
    13. What does the Empire eventually ultimately want? They want to rule with an iron fist and they want a weapon that blows up planets.
    14. Three films In: Turning the Brother back into a good guy and fight together against a new Sith. (I hope this happens)
    15. “How does the lightsaber get involved?” – Finn escapes, meets Rey, Han and Chewie come into play, the Falcon is somewhere buried in the desert and Han is looking for it for whatever reason.
    First act: meet han solo, the first empire attacks, eventually they scape
    Secnod act: they return to the rebel base, we see princess leia there
    “They will flat out, beat for beat ANH?”
    16. R2 will be a glorified cameo. BB8 will be the primary droid.

    It's nothing specific. Just that it will be used.

    Could work. Time traveling to kill Jar Jar, undo Last Jedi, force Greedo to slow down his shot, and make the Zahn Trilogy canon. That'll please.

    Misdirection probably. I doubt Disney's ballsy enough to pull that off. It's not the middle part, but the trilogy closer.

    All my biggest fears... Abrams backtracking on TLJ by doing another memberberry-loaded spectacle that doesn't advance the franchise one bit.

    I am willing to bet money that it’s misdirection.

    Imagery used in TLJ’s trailer made it pretty clear Rey was going dark, and that never happened.
