Star Wars: Episode IX

As long as we recognize Lucas is washed up and most TV sucks, we'll all get along fine.

GoT went downhill after his appearance, how much further can SW go?

Well. There was a lot of "wut?" But at the time I didn't even know that was a famous person. I thought they found an extra with a decent voice.

But I wouldn't say it cost as many viewers as other graphic violence and rape did.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

I mean, TLJ was about as bad as it gets, right?

Head of Lucasfilm Story Group disappears.

Long story short: Liberal black woman who was head of the Star Wars story was clearly fired by Disney after TLJ outrage, but it's been covered up.

Meh.

Looks like they aren't retconning the abomination that was TLJ. At least not enough for my liking. That trailer needed a lot more Luke.

And I'm guessing that was Palpatine laughing at the end.

I have zero interest in this movie.

Seems like an OK guess, but I'm hoping it's...

Stills released and they really want you to know one Jedi, in particular, is in the movie.

Notice who said Jedi is standing next to, which would imply what people thought from the last movie was retconned.

Dude claims to have the synopsis for Episode IX.

I didn't mind watching because I have no desire to see it.

I will say that, if true, it could have paths to redeem the franchise. However, the odds of them doing it correctly are slim. Especially since it doesn't involve retconning TLJ.

Anyway, watch if you want to see it.
