Sorry, Donald Glover. I love you, man. You know that.
But you're no Billy God Damn Dee®, baby.
I thought Donald Glover was the best part of Solo, but I'm sure even he will be delighted to see Williams in the role again.
I also jut thought that I kept expecting Maz to show up in Solo because she supposedly knows him from back when, even though we didn't see her until this trilogy. I bet it's safe to assume she knows Lando, too, and she is very much connected to Rey and Finn and Poe, so I wouldn't be surprised to see them use her as the connection, either.
All the main heroes of the original trilogy have died. Isn't it too late to bring secondary characters? Didn't they want to pass Star Wars to the new generation? When are they going to pass the trilogy to new characters, the trilogy is almost over. After all, they have not yet made a new trilogy. It's about the old characters.
Hardly. The new movies have focused on Rey, Ren, Finn and Poe. The characters from the OT have been supporting characters at best in the new films. The films are not about their journeys, it's Rey's (and Ren's, etc.).
My guess is that they're bringing in Billy Dee Williams to fill the Carrie Fisher-sized hole in the movie.
So they are still depending on the original trilogy characters. Why do they have to fill anything? Ultimately this trilogy is still all about the old characters. TFA was about Leia and Han and their son. The second one about Luke and Leia. The new characters are secondary.
In TFA, nearly all of Han's story is tied to Rey or Kylo Ren. In TLJ, Luke's story is tied entirely to Rey & Kylo Ren and alot of Leia's story is as well. Since she was running the Resistance, Leia was the one character that had a few things to do that were unrelated to the sequel trilogy characters but since Carrie Fisher isn't in Episode IX, that's gone too. And I highly doubt that Lando is going to be getting a part on the size that Luke, Leia or Han had.
I agree. I don't think Lando would "fill" whatever roll Leia was going to have in IX, but I also don't think it would be hard to bring him in.
Who says he hasn't been somehow evolved in the resistance all along. Just somewhere else, and something causes him to meet this group of what's left of this resistance. In TLJ, Leia made the call to their friends that was ignored. Well, maybe not everyone ignored it, but just wasn't able to respond in time.
It's also worth noting that the amount of screen time that we've seen the Resistance is only a few days. It would be easy to retcon him in as a long time supporter (if not a long time member) that was doing something else during that small window of time.
The trolling of KMT was wrong, but I wouldn't be displeased if she didn't come back or had a very reduced role in IX but I get the feeling that the writers love Rose.
Rewatching the film a few times she’s the weakest character I thought. I like the actress but not the character.
I really wish Rian Johnson were to do the final act of this trilogy.
He restored my faith in Star Wars, after JJ's 'The Force Awakens' nearly killed it for me.
I haven't decided if I'm going to watch this or not, I guess time will tell.
One thing I like about Rose is that she's just a regular joe and she manages to help. Rey has the Force and Finn & Poe are soldiers but she's 'only' a mechanic and a pilot of no apparent great note and she still helps turn the tide for the good guys.
My guess is that he's the one gathering the Resistance's allies scattered in the Outer Rim.
That's a funny statement. My faith in Star Wars was restored after the prequel trilogy, but was completely shattered by Rian Johnson's TLJ that I won't waste my time with the Star Wars universe going forward. I am predicting that Episode IX will be the worst performer of the sagas.
For me the prequels are hardly watchable. To each their own.
I hear that from a lot of people. You're not alone.
No chance. There will be more than a year and half between SW movies and Episode IX will be heavily marketed as the end of the trilogy so the general public will be ready for Star Wars and it'll do great.
Well, my faith was never shattered.
Not by the mediocre PT, not by the "remake" of ANH (Ep.VII) nor by the last installment.
Although with all these film I have some issues, over all I was always pretty good entertained. Not as good as by the OT but good enough.
Maybe I'm not taking it seriously enough.
I just realized I misspoke in my previous post. What I meant to say was that, "My faith in Star Wars was restored after the prequel trilogy with The Force Awakens, ..."
