    Took them long enough to drop a longer official-ish trailer. To me, the giant fleet of perfectly aligned Star Destroyers stood out the most.

    Looks ridiculous when seeing the Resistance Fleet is a few small X-wings and such. At least in Return of the Jedi the rebel fleet consisted of Admiral Ackbar's larger cruiser class ships as well as these smaller fighter class ships. I don't see how the Resistance would even stand a chance. Oh that's right, Leia can fly through space like Superman.

    Current worldwide gross: $1,073,294,598. It's currently the 8th highest grossing movie of 2019. Prior to its release, I figured that it would end up in the top three grossing movies of 2019, when you look at the track record of recent Star Wars movies (not counting Solo): TFA (#1), Rogue One (#2) and TLJ (#1).* Sure, looking at Box Office Mojo, it's still grossing money, but it won't break into the top five grossing movies.

    The top five grossing movies of 2019:
    1) Avengers Endgame ($2,797,800,564).
    2) The Lion King ($1,656,943,394).
    3) Frozen II ($1,448,824,988)
    4) Spider-Man: Far From Home ($1,131,927,996).
    5) Captain Marvel ($1,128,274,794).

    * Not to mention the older movies: ANH (#1), ESB (#1), RotJ (#1), TPM (#1), AotC (#4), RotS (#2).

    I saw a version of Episode 9 on Disney Plus. Was it the version that was shown on the screen? I don't know. It's a so-so movie. It would have a little bit better if it wasn't a Star Wars movie.

    Yeah, it was that awful.

    But in this movie's defence, the previous 2 movies caused it to be so awful.

    I just purchased this thing to finish the Skywalker saga. I simply skip the celebration scene. I'll never watch it again.

    This.

    WIth the dumpster fire that the episodes VII and VIII were, it'd have taken one hell of an effort and an awesome writer to come up with a great Episode IX. It's as if you were riding shotgun on a car, and the driver started driving at full speed towards a wall, only to hand you the wheel a mere 15 yards before said wall.

    Rewatched the Star Wars Rebels episode "A World Between Worlds". Frankly, this movie should've taken inspiration from that. The whole thing writes itself: Kylo Ren (despite his whole "let the past die" speech in TLJ) is on a quest for another portal to this "world between worlds", to allow him to save the Emperor's life (during his fall, after Vader throws him) and bring him into the present (for whatever endgame Kylo has). The heroes set out to stop Kylo. Use this "world between worlds" to further explore the main trio, by having them see things from their pasts. The family that Finn was taken from. A Rey origin twist (a better one), if they want. Want to bring back a few dead characters? They could. Mace Windu, directly after he's thrown out of Palpatine's window. Han Solo, right after he's stabbed by Kylo Ren (and falls down the abyss). Introduce plot device (not force healing), to not only repair the fatal damage to Han's body, but perhaps rejuvinate Han. Resulting in Han transforming and looking young again (enter Alden Ehrenreich), while having the experiences of his older self (and now has do deal with suddenly seeing a 40-ish years younger man looking back at him, in the mirror. While also dealing with the news that Leia has passed away). It would've Allowed Lucasfilm, if they want, to do more Han Solo films. Without being dependent on Harrison Ford, or forced to make them prequels. Would've also given more weight to Solo A Star Wars Story. Suddenly, not just a random prequel, but them introducing the actor who'll be playing Han Solo from this point in the timeline.

    This is just me spitballing (right after rewatching an episode of television). A writers room, with months on their hands, would've been able to develop and improve the concepts.
