Read a bunch of critics reviews, all say it ignores TLJ and is nothing but fan service.

HAHAHAHA

Count me in! Sounds perfect. TLJ was hot, hot trash.

Fan service is what I want, being a fan and all.

I don't want some artsy-fartsy indie flick masquerading as Star Wars.

Full spoiler is up on Wikipedia.

The story is indeed pretty bad.

Disney made this a cash grab, pure and simple. In doing so, they alienated a large part of the fanbase.

I never before felt this about Disney, they are a after all a business and making money is what all businesses do, but after visiting Disney World for the first time last week, wow, what a freaking cash grab.

I am not a big SW fan, but the last movie scored very low for me, 2 out of 10, stupid story and stupid what was done to Skywalker. I hope this last movie some how redeems the trilogy. Like a post credit scene and someone waking up in bed saying, "Wow, that was a bad dream."

Incredibly, JJ Abrams wrote an even worse script than Rian Johnson did for The Last Jedi.

Really? And he consulted Lucas too.

I hope someone does a remake of the last trilogy. And by remake I mean a re-do.

I don't see that happening at all. It's time for new material and they know it.

Oh I know but you never know, especially nowadays with all these remakes. It's just sad what Disney did to Luke Skywalker

i watched the "sneak peak" they had available on disney+ after i watched the mandalorian last night and wasnt impressed. more of the same poe and finn f_cking around while their lives are supposedly in danger. chase scene looked like disney was trying to design a theme park ride more than a chase sequence with any real potential consequences. ill probably just stream this one
