Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker |OT| Revenge of a Sith (SPOILERS NOW OPEN)

Good evening, everyone. We are one week out from the red carpet premiere and eventually wide release of the final entry of the Skywalker saga. And since over recent weeks many of you have enjoyed making tons of threads about this apparently dead franchise - from revisiting everyone's favorite 8th movie entry, to the always welcome Sheev thread - I figured I might as well get this over with.

Anyway, in the lead up to film, please feel free to use this thread to discuss your hype, the various special events that will happen before release day (*cough* Fortnite *cough*), your found memories of the franchise from years past, new or related videos/marketing material, early reviews, and of course... your spitting, spicy, fiery ass takes about the multiple times this franchise has been killed throughout the last 40 years. Of course, please use your common sense and decency to keep everything as civil and respectable as possible.


NOTABLE DATES COMING

December 14 - Fortnite Risky Reel scene premiere

December 16 - Hollywood Premiere + red carpet livestream + social media impressions

December 17 - Star Wars Battlefront II Update featuring TROS content

December 18 - Review embargo presumably lifts by this point

December 19 - Opening night preview screenings


December 20 - Movie releases wide. Internet expected to fall into chaos. God have mercy on you all.

IMPORTANT SPOILER POLICY REMINDER

Now in case the big 1920x540 notice in the OP was not enough for you or the blatant warning on the thread title, there will be no spoiler/leak discussion in this thread whatsoever - not even tagged spoilers or your whacky attempt to veil them as speculation or dancing around the topic. If you want to discuss any of that stuff, please go to this thread instead or use your PMs with other interested folk. So please, please, please be considerate to your fellow Era members who do not usually regular the community threads.

That said, I will also remind everyone else that this thread will effectively become a spoiler thread on DECEMBER 21, just so we can streamline discussion. Once that date hits, all bets will be off.


And with all that said and done,

This is incredible. A thread worthy of this epic finale to the greatest blockbuster film saga. Amazing.

I fucking love Star Wars.

There is nothing more exciting in cinema than a new Skywalker Saga Star Wars movie. Nothing compares to the anticipation to a new entry in the Skywalker Saga. Still hard accepting it's all over.

I am going to try to enjoy this last week, not sure I will ever have this level of hype for a movie again.

So how long until someone breaks the no spoiler rule because they don't care about the movie?

Seeing it on the 20th with my son. This is going to hurt. It’s our first Star Wars without my father around. He introduced me and my kid to the series.

Welp, it’s almost time. This is gonna be one helluva thread to revisit over the next few months.

Really hope JJ pulls off a miracle and wraps up this trilogy nicely.

Getting on that hype train by riding Rise of the Resistance early next week.

I can't wait for this trilogy to be over. Sweet release is so close to being here.

Slick thread. I can't believe we're less than two weeks away. It doesn't feel very long ago that Disney announced three new Star Wars episodes. I couldn't fucking believe it. Part of me still doesn't. It actually happened...

A part of me wishes there was a 3 year gap between each ST film, like the OT and PT.

The build-up would be greater.

Ultimately, my satisfaction or my disappointment will mostly be decided on how they treat Finn.

Let see how it goes.

Though I am rather worried because my not confident side is much higher than my confident side now.

A bit early isn't it? I'll probably have to keep my distance until the 22nd (not seeing it until then).

I have muted hype. And I loved the last two films overall. I’m off work from this Thursday up until Xmas day and I’m so pumped for my pre Xmas break. This will be cherry on top and I just hope it is good. At the absolute least it’s going to be ana adventure with amazing visuals and what look like utterly epic lightsaber battles (very hyped with how that played out in TFA and JJ is back again). I really hope it does justice to Star Wars as a whole. If it does I’ll be seeing it several more times in the cinema before the run ends. I hope they knock or out of the park.

Hopefully, I can continue my premiere day tradition of listening to the entire soundtrack before going to see the film. Hearing that John Williams music divorced of most of its context is a real trip.
