Thoughts on the first trailer for Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker


The final film of the newest and highest grossing, I think, Star Wars sequel trilogy finally has a name. Episode IX will officially be called Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. My body and soul are ready. I’m processing my thoughts over cheap free coffee and will add as my lunch digests.


Thoughts while digesting leftover taco salad

  1. OG LANDO. My guy has his ship back.

  2. This is the first Star Wars content I’ve watched in a while. Solo hurt my feelings but I’m ready again.

  3. I feel like I heard the Emperor’s laugh in the background near the end of the trailer.

  4. Realizing I’ve seen Rey and the crew kind of grow up is weird. She looks so much older and the franchise is hers. It still felt like the old guard’s franchise till The Last Jedi, but now it belongs to Rey.

  5. Give me more Kylo Ren in dark forests.


6. I see THE Death Star?

7. I love Star Wars? And time has made me freak out about this. Solo was a subpar Star Wars movie and seeing it so soon after The Last Jedi sucked. But it’s been a year, and when I see this movie multiple times this December, it will have been a year and a half since I saw Solo. Time heals wounds and I’m ready for Star Wars again.
