OK, this is for all of us who are jedi, clones, Corellian Scum, Sith lords, and other beings who have thoughts and opinions about the upcoming Star Wars movie.

Here's one trailer for those who haven't seen it.

Trailer.

Now, it looks suspiciously like Rey is talking to Kylo Ren, which upset Daughter-Unit and I greatly. However, since the backgrounds in that clip are different, I'm hoping that's a deliberate red herring!

D-U, my S-i-L and I will be seeing The Last Jedi the evening before it officially opens. But until then, speculate away! Let us know when new trailers are out! Help us! You're our only hope!!

Before the last film came out, the one with the Death Star AGAIN, I binge-watched the previous films. This was a huge mistake, as I became incensed at what I saw as a recycled storyline. I was so upset that when a bloke in the cinema got up and walked out I thought he was protesting and almost got up and followed him out, fist in the air. He came back a few minutes later, so it would have been really embarrassing if I had done it. Me: Solidarity brother. These bastards are ripping us off blind. Did they do the script during the writers' strike? Him: I'm just going for a piss mate.

When I spoke to my brother about it, he said I was crazy and pointed out all the differences, which were minor but sufficient. My big beef was that the Death Star had basically the same design flaw as the one Luke blew up, and I raved and ranted about that until my brother calmly pointed out that I was an idiot.

In order to curry favor with my Nephews, I have pre-purchased the video game Star Wars Battlefront 2: 2017, and my minor participation in the beta has re-kindled my interest in the franchise. I think I might see that film with Rey again, the Rogue Nation one, and this new one too. If I'm really polite about them, the nephews might look after me in my dotage.

Is this the thing that people were upset about and described as a big spoiler? To me that looked like a classic example of misleading scene-cutting in the trailer. You can't tell who either Rey or Kylo Ren is talking to in that scene: I think it's cut from two different scenes to make it look like they're talking to each other. But I guess we'll see!

I thought the big give-away was that Kylo-Ren is going to kill his mother. They have to write Carrie Fisher out of the series somehow (sniff).

I predict some very recycly Jedi-training (but without Yoda).

Was there anything in the trailer that suggested Kylo killing Leia? If so, I missed it (not that I mind an excuse to watch it again).

I took the scene where Leia was looking out the window of whatever space ship that was, and Kylo Ren with his finger on the trigger could be another red herring, or it could be how Carrie Fisher (msriparig) gets written out of the story.

Simontoad, that annoyed me too, but it seems the Evil Empire, or First Order or current bad dudes all seem to think they'll eventually get the Death Star right.

Bad Guy 2: "Yeah, that'll work!"

Isn't it usual that Jedi have trouble with their teachers in some way? Daddy issues have already been repeated. Maybe we're going to do mummy issues now. It's in Freud somewhere, who got it from the ancient Greeks. What symbology is the big eared white cat-goat in the trailer. An archetype perhaps?

For being such a great human being, Adam Driver sure plays a believable evil bad guy!

I'm hoping for a story of redemption, but what do I know?

Oh, I think we're getting a Kylo Ren redemption arc, but not to be completed in this movie. Also I think killing BOTH your parents might be a bit too far to come back from for a redemption story, but that's just me.
