    I would prefer a standalone film, at least as a tie-in to a show, rather than just the show. I honestly lost all hope on IX when they announced JJ would do it. I mean I would take him over Colin Trevorrow any day, hell I'd take Tommy Wiseau over Colin Trevorrow any day, but JJ has never done an ending. It's probably going to suck.

    I agree. What little I've seen looks promising. I probably won't be jumping on Disney+ at launch, but not out of disinterest.

    Um, no, I was speaking about another thing, namely all these proprietary services (Netflix, Amazon, Disney, etc.) setting up their own closed-circuit systems. I'm not going to watch any of them; it's bad enough to see Disney and the like buy the distribution rights to series made by either studios (the latest and most notorious example I've experienced being Ladybug) and then simply cutting them up and releasing them in the wrong order, only partially or not at all, well, I might watch it on YouTube or a similar platform, but I'm not forking out a single extra cent for their ‘services’.
    Especially after StarWars: Resistance. :ack:

    You can subscribe to several different streaming services and still spend less than you would once have spent on a satellite TV subscription, and for a substantially more worthwhile produce. Disney's attempt to reinvent Old Hollywood style vertical integration is a bit worrying, but even that's mostly because Disney owns a uniquely large slice of modern popular culture; nobody cares that, for example, WWE have a vertically-integrated streaming service, because it's a niche product.

    The cylons are back!

    It's not a very inspired design.

    I've always liked the darker Star Wars stuff - The Empire Strikes Back; Rogue One; The Last Jedi - and The Mandalorian looks to be following in those footsteps.

    I mean I would love it if Rey the Kansas City shuffle and switched places with Kylo but given the time we've got and it being Abrams, it has to be a Force vision. If it is not, and if it is well done, then that would probably redeem JJ in my eyes.

    You know, I thought that Palpatine looked a little off in the new TROS poster and now I know why - the artist used a photo of the Hot Toys Emperor Palpatine. :rolleyes:

    OK, I'm not going to lie - the wide shot of that fleet of Star Destroyers and Rey hooded with that unique double-bladed lightsaber was pretty darn cool! :cool:

    That fleet was... overwhelming. You really ought to consider where the hell the baddies are getting all the money to build fleet after fleet after planet-sized system-killer.

    I'm sure the resistance, which is made up of 4 rebels, a broom boy, and a suspicious-looking cereal box, will find a way to squash a few dozen Star Destroyers.

    Don't forget the self-propelled striped orange billiard ball, Syn-chan!
    Let's see, it'd have to be absolutely well-done and Disney's productions, of late, appear to be aiming for safe ground and happy-peppy moralistic endings. Even their Zombie films have dance numbers and redemption for unholy undead monsters with green hair and bad makeup, so… *shrugs and opens hands helplessly*
