The force ghost fight from the original Revenge of the Jedi drafts seemed kinda cool. If they could pull something like that off, it could be neat (or stupid, I don’t know)

I actually did NOT notice that Finn has Rey's staff in the trailer. Huh...


His "Oh B" was in response to my leaving an & in the yt code, causing it to fail.

But yeah ... and I bet you didn't notice that her clothes were cleaner on "Endor" than they were in the tie fighter face off.

What Palpatine Left Behind

This is a great summary of everything Palpatine has been shown doing in the new expanded universe since Disney acquired Star Wars, from Rebels to the comics to Battlefront II. It's obviously way too early to speculate what the Emperor's laugh actually means for TROS (though the implication is heavy since we're likely looking at wreckage of Death Star II at the end of the teaser), but this has been carefully crafted for a while now and likely going to get some payoff in the movie.

^^this is very likely something that will bear fruit in the film.

Just heard Kevin smith saying the shot of (Reys parents ship?) flying into that city, that’s the set he saw when he visited the set and it’s the biggest set he’s ever seen

I'm inclined to believe this ship is the same model as the one Rey's parents left in. Some people were saying it might be an A-wing but don't A-wings have orange-ish engine emanations?


So could this be flashback?

I’m thinking it’s a flashback too. It’s definitely the same ship in my opinion.
Consensus out there is split if it is or not.
But if it’s not why include a ship that looks exactly like it? Especially tying in with what JJ says about the parents story being included.

Kerri Russell could end up being her mom. Had to hide her. Something like that

Dime, you've referenced JJ addressing the parents thing several times now but I must have missed what he said. Where did you see/hear it and what exactly did he say?

Hang on I’ll find it

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Will Reveal More About Rey’s Parents Without Contradicting The Last Jedi

A new, brief interview with J. J. Abrams from Clayton Sandell (our friend who reports for ABC News) reveals that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker does show that there is indeed more than meets the eye about Rey’s parents… But not so fast! It’s not going to completely undo The Last Jedi‘s devastating twist about them, either – so don’t expect Rey to related to anybody that we’ve already met in previous films.


Sandell spoke with Abrams rather recently, following the debut of the official title for The Rise of Skywalker and the trailer and teaser poster that went with it. The subject of Rey’s heritage is something that sparked interest since before the release of The Force Awakens, and some were left unsatisfied with the most shocking reveal of all in The Last Jedi: that Rey’s parents were objectively terrible people of no importance who sold her into slavery. The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi seem to disagree on what happened next; in the former, Rey’s parents used her as payment to get off of Jakku, and in the latter, Kylo Ren states that they used the money that they got from selling their flesh and blood for booze before dropping dead soon afterward.


While Ren’s explanations for the turn of events seemingly retcon the vision that Rey saw (which, as a vision, admittedly might not be 100% accurate to what actually happened), it appears as though Abrams will not be retconning Rian Johnson’s movie, or at least not directly. Per Sandell, Abrams will honor what happened in The Last Jedi while also pointing out that there’s still more to that story:

This is how I imagined that they’d go about it if they wanted to go into that part of Rey’s story any more than they already have: they wouldn’t pull a fast one on us and reduce one of the best moments in The Last Jedi into a cheap ploy by the villain only to reveal that Rey is the result of a one-night stand between Boba Fett and Sy Snootles. Even still, it might not matter who Rey’s parents are so much as what they did, and who was influencing their actions. I was kind of hoping that they would move on and test Rey’s character in other ways, but if Abrams has a good plot-related reason to delve into Rey’s secret origins that can add a layer of depth to the story, then there’s probably no harm in doing that.

On another note, there’s a shot in the trailer that shows a transport flying into a dark, cloud-covered mountainous planet that is home to a big, fancy city. That part isn’t important. What’s important is the design of the ship that flies in, because it bears more than a passing resemblance to the same kind of ship that Rey saw leave Jakku in her vision:



You’re probably better off trying to look into the video itself, right before the screengrab, to get a better look at the ship, but it seems like there might be a connection here. It initially appears to be an A-wing, but from what we can see, the ship’s design is more rectangular in nature than the A-wing’s. We know from The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi that flashbacks are no longer off the table for Star Wars movies, and with The Rise of Skywalker seemingly being about tying everything together and providing answers to questions raised in this trilogy, it seems like they will be completely inevitable. Hopefully, we’ll find out whether or not this ship belongs to Rey’s parents before the end of the year.

Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker arrives in theaters on December 20, 2019.

Oddly or maybe understandable that JJ saying that has all but gone unnoticed, it would be a massive set the sw Internet on fire story any other day but given the deluge of news this weekend and the trailer it slipped past most people.

Then this. This is a total smokescreen for something else. Most likely Hayden being on set
