I'm guessing it will fit with 7 and 8. I've liked every film JJ has directed and every film I've seen that he produced or wrote. I like all the leads. Kylo Ren has already had a better character arc than any antagonist and most protagonists in this series. Daisy Ridley sells the action hero way better than Mark Hamill did in the OT.

Just rewatched the trailer. No Rose. I know Kelly Marie Tran is in the film, but not in the trailer, and not with the heroes when they see the Death Star wreckage.

I've got money that they're talking about Kylo.

Before the subsequent movies, wasn't there novels written about ben solo and his sister?

I would guess they are going to reveal the obvious.

Everything about Star Wars that wasn't in the movie or the Clone Wars cartoon series was invalidated when the Mouse bought the franchise.

The Star Wars Galactic Dance Off from the Star Wars Kinect on the Xbox 360 is no longer canon.

Right. But, it makes sense for them to reveal it. The title has to have a double meaning.

You forget star wars rebels is now canon, and Luke had a canon apprentice in his adolescent years.

It'll come down to an approval for sibling-incest.

The last two really haven't aged well in my opinion and if this one has bad reviews I may actually skip it which is amazing.

Solo had bad reviews at first, but then they seemed to improve and I thought it was good.

I still haven't seen solo which is why I think I will skip 9 if it is rumored to suck.
