“Every generation has a legend. Watch the brand-new teaser for Star Wars: Episode IX.”
I enjoyed The Force Awakens…I enjoyed The Last Jedi…
…But I have to confess, that I left the theater after Last Jedi, still not knowing where this trilogy was even going [aside from the obvious, that Rey is likely a Skywalker]…The movie still failed to solidify, any concrete overarching narrative of the trilogy…aside from “here is Rey, developing into a Jedi”…Everything else just feels like ‘whatever is happening around her”…Interesting to watch…but it doesn’t feel like it’s all that epic…and it’s hard to define, exactly what it is in the larger picture.
Because of this…how this trilogy turns out, primarily hinges on how Rise of Skywalker handles things…Pretty much everything is resting on this one movie, because Last Jedi did not do what it was supposed to do.
I hope they pull this off well.
