It would make whatever happens with him and Ezra/Sabine more interesting, and it could be a good bridge to explaining Snoke & the First Order, for those who feel like they need that whole thing explained to them in a movie.

    My initial reaction is that he's not Thrawn. But the more I think about it and how much sense it would make, both on and off screen, I'm starting to lean the other direction.


    Wouldn't the lack of blue skin be a problem?


    Definitely.

    Totally agree.....since they got Capt Jean-Luc Picard back....it aint happnin.


    It would be a byproduct of Disney acquiring Paramount. Disney wouldn't just buy Star Trek.

  • Disney might split Episode IX into two movies. While I'm generally against such things, I am hopefully they would treat the existing Episode VIII as a dream sequence and then essentially re-do it with part one and then part two would be the real Episode IX.

    That TOTALLY changed my opinion. I'm going to hate Star Wars from now on just because it's dead to you.

    Well that settles that.

    So anyway, what do you guys think of Rose leading the Resistance now that Leia is gone?

  • Sounds awful and doesn't make sense. She can lead the resbelliance, though. Whatever that is.

    That's what happens when you're not sure if they're going with Resistance or Rebellion for the next movie.

    Hasn't it been the Resistance in the ST? I guess I see what you're saying, though. Either way, it doesn't make sense to me. You'd think Poe, Finn, Rey or one of the other randoms would be first in line for leadership.

    It was Resistance in TFA and then about halfway through TLJ they started saying Rebellion again. And yeah, obviously Poe is the de facto leader at this point, depending on what actually happens with Leia on screen.

  • Rewatched TLJ last night and it's crazy how torn I am on that movie. I think they nailed some things, but totally blew it on some others.

    I don't want to see anymore of Rose. Not only do I dislike her character, but I hate just about every piece of dialogue she has in the movie. So shallow. If she ends up leading the rebellion I'll be floored at how poor the decision making is in this trilogy. Every movie has it's flaws, or at the very least creative decisions that folks will disagree with, but I don't think I could handle another "I saved you, dummy" moment again. It's like she came straight from a Care Bears Star Wars crossover. "Saving what we love." Gross.

    I suspect that with the death of most of the Resistance's leadership in TLJ, and the unfortunate passing of Carrie Fisher, the Resistance drafts General Calrissian out of retirement, especially since Billy Dee Williams is already confirmed.

    I'm almost positive we'll see less of Rose in 9. I'd bet money on it. Unless JJ just wants to twist the knife haha. She was for sure the least likable part of TLJ for me. I don't full on hate her like a lot of people do, but I sure don't really care much about her. And her disney-kid persona can definitely go. If JJ makes her a little more rough around the edges and less Care Bearsy I'll be happy.

  • Maulbert - I could definitely get down to a Lando return. Interested to see what kind of shape his character is in all these years later lol.

    Zeb - Yeah, it was the ridiculous Disney-kid persona like you said. So much seriousness in that movie and then there's Rose speaking like a child, trying to give us shallow commentary on war profiteering, etc.

    Do you guys think it's at all possible that this trilogy turns into a four part series? I still feel like TLJ leaves us with pretty much nothing to look forward to and the scope is so small for a saga entry. I think it would be pretty cool if IX ends up having some really cool twist or crazy finish (like Infinity War) that seemingly requires another entry. Could just be my Star Wars fandom secretly wanting that, if nothing more than to redeem this trilogy, but I also wonder if the passing of Carrie Fisher wreaked havoc on their overall storyline of the series from TLJ onward.
