    I've watched it 15 times. I might just be a little excited

    I often reflect on how the prospect of things 10-15 years would have me excited. This is one of those things that would've had me giddy with excitement...now I'm just lukewarm. I think the last 5 Star Wars movies have me treading lightly with this one.

    I'm wondering if Luke wants to end the Jedi because of his failure to train new ones & the destruction they've brought with them.

    That happened to me in the theater 34 years ago about halfway through watching Return of the Jedi. I still enjoy aspects of the Star Wars universe, I just don't get all that excited about any of it.

    I heard this about Hamill's opinion on the direction of Luke weeks ago. Wasn't certain it was true. Now I'm wondering if he's trying to fudge his actual feelings on the direction.

    Modern science has allowed us to look into Mark Hamill's mind to see what was his thoughts were doing as he was talking:

    He didn't flub anything, but one can almost hear the gears working in his head as he spoke so as to be as diplomatic as possible.

    From EW.com
    Perhaps the only thing more unsettling than meeting your enemy is coming face-to-face with your hero.That’s where the Star Wars saga left us at the end of The Force Awakens, with Daisy Ridley’s Rey standing atop a craggy, windswept island, holding out Luke Skywalker’s long-lost family lightsaber to the man she knew only as a legend. But in The Last Jedi, she actually has much further to go to find the warrior who inspired all those old stories.This isn’t the Luke she’s heard about. It’s not the one we know either.This is a broken man. One who would have preferred to stay lost. And he feels the same way about that lightsaber.

    Josh Trank, Gareth Edwards(almost), Lord & Miller — you're gonna have company. Colin Trevorrow, the Jurassic World helmer who's been attached to direct Star Wars: Episode IX for something like two years now, is officially out, per a statement Tuesday on StarWars.com.

    I don't really count Trank since his film never got past the idea stage.

    The only film we haven't heard some sort of issue with is the Last Jedi. My guess is if it's received extremely well (just a hunch I think it will) then I think Rian Johnson finishes out the trilogy

    Smart, introspective science-fiction - which Star Wars can be - is a thriving genre right now. There are several working directors who seem perfect for a Star Wars film. Patty Jenkins and Denis Villeneuve come to mind immediately.

    Ava DuVernay or Ryan Coolger (already under Disney contract with Marvel for “Black Panther”) might've been interestng choices. Neill Blomkamp or “Dark City’s” Alex Proyas definitely understand conceptual sci-fi, as does Kathryn Bigelow or Robert Zemeckis.

    But all the fan dreaming of a perfect, smart and new take on Star Wars went out the window when it was announced this week that J.J. Abrams would be returning to direct Episode IX. It’s a safe bet, if not a particularly bold decision. And that’s what Disney is going for - not rocking the multi-billion dollar franchise boat.

    Check your back issue collections, apparently Mark Hamill says Star Wars #49 from the old Marvel series is a massive spoiler for The Last Jedi so don't read it before you see the film. The name of the issue - The Last Jedi.

    Makes me wonder if Mr. Hamill isn't trying to drive up the price of that issue? Wonder if he has a case of #49 somewhere in the back of a closet.

    That issue is on MU... if you dare!

    And if there was some idea they pulled from that, there was a really strong creative team on the issue- Mike W. Barr, Walt Sinonson, Tom Palmer.

    It would be fun to see them thanked in the credits (or, more importantly, to hear that Disney sent them a check).
