And suddenly everyone on my Facebook is sharing the SW9 trailer.

I’m mostly impressed. The flip with the TIE fighter looks amazing, and we all know what a stickler JJ is for practical effects! Many Bothans died to bring you that stunt.

Not gonna lie, seeing Billy Dee Williams back as Lando was nice. Looks like a lot is happening in this one, and there is going to need to be even more if we want to pretend this is actually a wrap on the series.

Yes, I know Star Wars is a kids movie second and a merchandise machine first, but even so, I was not happy to see another ‘cute’ droid – we can leave that well alone, you know.

And finally…the cackle of Ian McDiarmid to close it out? Perfect.
