 ???  -- Get a room.  :P

I hear that they might be revising Rey's back story.  Not sure how to feel about it.  I really didn't like the direction of 8 but to backtrack already?

There's a fair bit of retconning coming, I expect...

Damn... I must be the only one that thought this looked meh. Is jumping the TIE the new jumping the shark?

Rey's jump in that trailer made my nipples hard. Yes, you're the only one who didn't get excited.

I think the title is kinda wacky.  This is the last one, right?  Or at least the last one to follow the Skywalker family?  So why the "Rise" of Skywalker?

I also didn't think this looked like it would be any improvement whatsoever over what I consider to be one of the worst movies of all time.  Rey flipping onto a TIE only makes me think "that pilot is an idiot for flying so low".  Lando showing up only makes me think "Keep getting them checks Mr. Williams, but you should've been here while Han was still alive, since he's the only character you're linked to."  I don't trust their writing ability to make Palpatine coming back make sense, or that they wouldn't Disney-fy him like all the other First Order characters in TLJ (i.e. bumbling idiotic comic relief).  They also need to prove they can write a coherent story that isn't an obvious collection of set pieces they wanted in the film with no idea how to connect them, but a trailer isn't going to show that anyway.
