The Stand-Alone Trilogy General Discussion

What is known thus far: Not very much. RIan Johnson will develop it and no release date has been released yet. It'll explore previously unexplored territory of Star Wars.

Announced: A Stand-Alone Star Wars Trilogy

Announcement from Disney/Lucasfilm: For director Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi was just the beginning of his journey in a galaxy far, far away. Lucasfilm is excited to announce that Johnson will create a brand-new Star Wars trilogy, the first of which he is also set to write and direct, wit...

Re: Last Television Show Watched

Binged Stranger Things season 2 over the weekend. Despite slowing down in the middle and having one episode that just didn't fit, this series continues to be a ton of fun. I also binged the second season this weekend, from Friday to Saturday. :) Yes, I guess which episode you're referring to, but i...

Re: Star Trek - From TOS to Discovery and Beyond

Star Trek has always been about optimism for the future, of teamwork and exploration. And there's no reason this show can't get into those things as it proceeds. Again, I don't want to judge the entire show in the content of just a few episodes. I think its fair game to pursue darker, war-themed st...

Re: Star Trek - From TOS to Discovery and Beyond

I'm open to something darker. I don't mind that. But it feels like they're barreling forward haphazardly and without much effort to allow the characters or story to breathe. Star Trek has always been about optimism for the future, of teamwork and exploration. What we've gotten so far is more of the...

Re: Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

Kylo is for sure going to change sides and go good. Rey, not sure. I doubt she goes dark side. One reason I think Rey will go dark is that this essentially is the TESB of the sequel trilogy and where things will look bleak at the end. If she indeed turns, then perhaps Rey is saved in IX (possibly b...

Re: Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

This is what I think will have happened at the end of TLJ in broad strokes: Rey will have turned to the Dark Side and joined Snoke (I believe Snoke's words in the beginning of the trailer actually are aimed at Rey, not Kylo) while Kylo will have returned from it, possibly following the death of Lei...

A good, but not great, trailer. I guess I'm too afraid to hope after TFA... Before I went spoiler-free (see how well that turned out), there was a rumor going about that I didn't lend much credence to then, but that I now believe might be somewhat correct: That Luke refuses to train Rey and that Rey...

Back in 1998 we got our first full--and mind blowing--trailer for TPM about 6 months before the premier. We're about 2.5 months away this time. What's Lucasfilm waiting for? We don't have to wait many more days, ol'Tov. It's most probably going to be released during Monday Night Football on Columbu...

Looking at that pic, it looks like it folds out (on all sides) from a circular shape. The inside looks like all Imperial / 1st Order large ships / planet killers. Does this mean it is another Starkiller base, so keeps in the tradition of the rebuilding, what is destroyed in the 1st of the trilogy? ...

Well, two scenes were poorly re-edited: The chase after Zam and the Yoda vs Dooku duel. Shots were rearranged (and now makes little sense), but the music wasn't so it's chopped up.
