Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

There's an alleged leaked script online and the movie sounds horrible.

"Worse than the prequels" LOL, that might be worth the ticket price alone.

I'm not going to see it, though. Of course not.

Discuss!

It's very hard to judge this on it's own because of how horrible a setup The Last Jedi left with the franchise. It's like the Germans trying to win WW2 after losing on the Russian Front. You're working with such a deficit that it makes everything exponentially more difficult.

I know J.J. Abrams originally didn't want to do episode 9, but he was convinced by his wife to try and fix it. It's a uphill battle and I feel like we can only really blame Rian Johnson and Kathleen Kennedy for the current state of Star Wars.

I also feel like Star Wars has been well past it's peak. If we can put some of the major franchises to bed, hopefully we can get some new ideas in Hollywood.

Expanded Universe still has stories that feel like Star Wars, far more than the new films The corporate and political influences are way too prevalent. Imagine if Tie Fighter or Jedi Knight were adapted instead. Tonally, they're 100% authentic SW.
