Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
The trailer came out and I would like to talk about it a bit. I never put up a Last Jedi review on here, but I would like to say now that I’m a huge fan of it. About 10 minutes of the movie is garbage, however that’s only ten minutes.
Anyway, this trailer, to me, was just fan service. Now, it is just a trailer, but I don’t like it for the overall feeling I’m getting from the trailer, the direction they decided to go is what bothers me. “Let the past die, kill it if you have to.” We are getting Kylo in his helmet again. We are growing back to the same lightsaber, the same Rey outfit, the same desert locations, and Palpatine is coming back. I understand the dislike for Last Jedi, but that doesn’t mean we just blow right over it. Move on. My main criticism with Force Awakens was that it was a carbon copy of A New Hope, Last Jedi was immensely different than any Star Wars film.
To me, Rise of Skywalker just looks like another Disney Star Wars film unfortunately. I will go in to the film setting this thinking aside of course, but I simply don’t think that this was the right direction to take for Star Wars.
