So I watched the trailer for the new upcoming Star Wars Episode 9 and I thought it was decent myself. The musical score was what really stood out for me and although at first I wasn’t that much of a fan of putting so much of the old footage in a trailer for a new movie I thought it worked in a way.
So, after hearing the Star Wars theme in a different sort of tone we get to the new characters, and the new movie and there were a few interesting bits there:
First, we C3PO ( I hope I didn’t butcher his name, maybe it is C-3PO), in red eyes….so I think that has a lot of people thinking and wondering what are we going to get with C3PO?
Is he going to be a villain? Is this what they are hinting at?
We see a cool shot of Rey doing a few things, first she throws her lightsaber and cuts a tree and the lightsaber comes back like a boomerang, the shot was cool, I liked it, plus we see her fight Kylo Ren, then finally we see her in a black uniform, Sith clothes..I mean….and then she opens up her lightsaber and it reminds us of Darth Mauls dual lightsaber staff.
That was a cool scene I thought from the first Star Wars, I wish we had more of those types of scenes though, but too much of a good thing will ruin it won’t it?
So, Rey is holding two lightsabers and she sort of looks a little bit like Darth Maul doesn’t she?
So, this looks good, but trailers have been so wrong before, are they just sort of teasing us with threats to make Rey a Sith, is she related to Darth Maul? I don’t know but I feel that would be sort of cool if she is though.
Finally at the end we see Rey and Kylo Ren fighting it out on the sea on a ship and the fight does look good.
The trailer overall looks good, the music is nice and I will see the movie, but I’m not happy with the Last Jedi though, I thought they could have done better….much better really, but anyway we’ll see where this one goes. I’m guessing that they will have a big surprise ending, and close loopholes and plot threads that have been going on for multiple movies.
Maybe they will bring Darth Maul back in some way, I don’t know, although I think that would be cool if they did, Darth Maul seemed actually like a cool guy if you get past his chip on the shoulder..
What do I think will happen and quick predictions?
I personally am going to predict that we will have a big reveal about something we previously didn’t know about, and along those lines I think that Rey being a daughter of Darth Maul is a real possibility, and that she is the daughter of Qi’ra and Darth Maul.
As for the Emperors return, I have no idea how they would go about bringing him back and it not being a bit silly…..I mean we all saw him die at the end of the original trilogy right? I sometimes think it may be lazy writing, and convenience that prompts some of these writers to just bring someone back…but that is my humble opinion….
