Edit: 27th Dec - feel free to discuss spoilers now!

Please continue to use this thread to discuss the movie even after you have seen it but please put anything that is a spoiler in spoiler tags (highlight what is a spoiler, use the three dot drop down in the menu, and select "Inline Spoiler") until Friday 12/27 so that people get a chance to see it over the holidays

Thanks!!!

Hi All,

With the final trailer now out I thought it made sense to have a thread to focus the discussion about the movie.

Here we can talk about what we saw in the trailer / break it down, share out experiences in buying tickets for the movie, and then after the movie is out we can change this thread to be one that contains SPOILER discussion. Prior to the actual release of the movie let's try to avoid any spoiler talk, but can cover anything that has actually been released

May the Force be with us

Final trailer:


Story about ticket pre-sales outpacing Endgame:


Reviews are in - and are very mixed:

    They better not kill my boy C-3PO without acknowledging him as a Skywalker...

    I’m going to have to wait to get my tickets, but I’m excited.

    Not impressed. I hope that the movie is better than this trailer. I cringed when the horse creatures rode by. Hopefully they're saving the big Anakin scene but so far no sign of him.
    I don't mind the orbaks (the horse creatures) - there obviously is a history of characters riding creatures in Star Wars. Though I think they will work much better in small doses not throughout the movie

    The “horses” were already seen in previous imagery and involve one of the new characters for this film. That scene didn’t stand out for me so I don’t have a problem with it.

    I also didn’t have a problem with whoever is in the hood. We are to assume it’s Palpatine but it could be someone else.

    I would think at this point in the history of the series, there has to be quite a bit of misdirection in the trailer. Probably a decent amount of work to make a good trailer that doesn't provide too many spoilers.
    There is a lot to accomplish in this movie.

    Yeah this trailer didn’t tell us much about the movie. The trailer showed things we already knew really.
