Saw it last night

I really liked it. The space fights scenes really kept me on the edge of my sit. I'd swear the previous movies' weren't as intense as this one's, the Dreadnaught fight is really jaw dropping and it's just the movies intro. This movie also toys with the viewers expectations so many times I forgot I was watching a popcorn film.

If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

It's been three weeks since the worldwide release, we can drop the spoiler tags now.

Considering the source is a concept art book, it makes sense it only mentions the early drafts for VII and VIII and not IX. Disney may not know where to take the franchise, but I think it's more likely that they do know and don't want to spill the beans. A billionaire project like a SW trilogy doesn't sound like the kind of stuff Disney does on the fly.

It'd be interesting to ask Lucas how did he plan to end the trilogy, but he might be under a strict NDA.

So apparently Andy Serkis is going around talking about Snoke, how he too was shocked to see him die like that but that he knew it felt right at that moment in the movie because Kylo Ren is the one who's important and they wanted to "clear the deck" of the Emperor/Vader relationship... but hinting that "you never know" when a character dies if he will return or be brought back somehow.
Personally I'd find it hilarious if he returned as a Force ghost, to maintain the emphasize on how blurred the line is between the light and dark sides (no Sith has appeared as a Force ghost, only Jedis - and post-redemption Anakin), to show off Snoke's mastery of the Force a bit more for shit 'n giggles, and because that would be pretty satisfying as a counter-weight to the Emperor/Vader connection if Ghost Nappa Snoke just started haunting Kylo like an angry vengeful ghost. Take the focus a bit off either character and more on the Force itself, what it can do, like a disaster movie with good and bad characters running away from a storm. Maybe this could actually go somewhere (because Kylo right now is a pretty terrible character and is looking to be an awful big bad in ep 9 on his own), and where Last Jedi on its own really divided the fandom, seeing the trilogy as a whole might have episode 9 counter balance episode 8 a lot and make it feel better in hindsight.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
