    Ya know, the Knights of Ren annoy me. This is supposed to be a elite cult/hand picked warriors right? Why do they look like Mad Max rejects?

    While I can’t say I like the KON Armor I do like it for one simple reason. It looks old and worn. My biggest design gripe for the ST is everything looks “new.” Lucas’ master stoke for the immersive nature of the OT was a “used” universe. I guess if the FO are all the gads about the universe they can look all spiffy and new but thank god the Knights at least look the part.... even if I’m not particularly fond of it.

    I don’t know if anybody’s been to one of those new Look chain theaters, but today I visited one and saw a poster for this movie, but below it, there was a video player playing the trailer. I dunno, it was actually really cool.

    Definitely what I’m thinking, regarding parentage.

    Not shocked they already miniaturized DeathStar tech in TLJ.

    Lets hope they show new footage of this at the disney expo thing this month. I have zero enthusiasm for this and need more hype.

    The new character? Is that the one Keri Russell is playing?

    Rumor is that they may show a bit of new footage there, but the final trailer will be in October.

    It seems to be related to the reshoots, but IDK. Rogue One's trailer had a crap load of scenes that didn't make it into the final cut, so who knows.

    That’s consistent with what we got for TLJ as well. Trailer in April for celebration, trailer in October. Rogue One kinda followed the same beat with an extra trailer August 11, ironically enough.

    It is. It's also probably going to be that long till we see some Rise of Skywalker merchandise.

    So.... I'm not sure how up and up everyone is with current leaks or spoilers and such (no I'm not spoiling anything), but if this one that seems to be pretty credible comes to pass, I'm 100% done with this trilogy to the point I'm burning my copies of TFA and TLJ. It's literally that bad and the stupidest thing I've ever heard them do with a Star Wars film.
