    In those shows maul is definitely an interesting and developed character but even in star wars it's hard to accept watching someone get sliced in half and and fall down some giant drop but come back later

    #TLJblows and needs to be retconned

    Perhaps she's not attacking the fighter, but catching a lift home to see daddy... who through the miracle of cloning is back in his true form, as the Snoke experiment failed.

    Its been a while since I’ve seen Clone Wars so my memory is quite hazy. Just finished Rebels and admittedly loved Maul’s final battle with Obi-Wan. Could be time for a rewatch methinks

    But like Philby said, watching someone come back from getting sliced in half is a bit much, bordering on nuking the fridge.

    I heard there was a lot of Leia footage cut from Ep 7, enough to splice enough scenes to farewell her in Ep 9.

    I’ll be watching this one, but to be honest I’m not overly optimistic about it being anything spectacular. JJ is good at setting things up, not so good at concluding, and Rian shut a lot of doors in TLJ.

    Whether Rey ends up being a Skywalker or not, from the trailer, she certainly appears to be the first to “Sky Walk”
    My wife asked me why I carry a gun?, I said "Decepticons"... She laughed, I laughed, the toaster laughed, I shot the toaster. It was a good day.

    End game wins this by trailer. Just saying.

    I no longer put any expectations at all.

    Agreed. Endgame is an event, this just looks like another Christmas movie.

    The trailer did not do a lot to raise my optimism about this film.

    The state of play at the end of The Last Jedi left the franchise in a position to go in a truly original direction for Ep 9.

    But hey look the Emperor is back, the Graflex saber is fixed, Kylo has glued his helmet together and we're doing another Death Star related plot.
    I'm really just here for the free food and open bar.

    I think if the story were to continue then breaking new ground and opening things up would be great but this is the finale of 40 plus years of story telling, yes it's safe to pull out the old but I think it's what is needed in this case. I get simply tying a bow on it is lazy but I do hope that it will be a bit more than that and leave many of us loving that the new characters came along and had a large purpose in the overall story.
    The later it gets, the less sense I will make (usually anything beyond 19:30 Qld time).
