Plot Synopsis For Episode IX Has Leaked?

YouTube Channel Star Wars Theory received the alleged plot synopsis for Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker. Now, we cannot say of course if this leak is legit or fake, but the synopsis is consistent with previous leaks, which still means nothing, but at least it sounds plausible. By now you know the drill: if you want to learn more, then click through, if you want to know nothing, well, I advise you to stay away from this article or else you will be spoiled. So let’s discuss the spoiler after the jump!

What Do You Want For Force Friday And Beyond?

We’re in somewhat of a lull at the moment. Most figures Hasbro have already finished are still under a Disney embargo and nothing official is known. We do know that on Triple Force Friday we will definitly get figures for The Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian and the Fallen Order video game. So let’s talk about what you expect, what you hope for and what you want! Both for TVC and TBS! And let’s speculate also if there will be any (Force Link) 3.75 in 5 POA figures at all, because so far there are exactly zero rumors about the latter. So click through for a discussion!

Early this morning, reviewed some of the photos from Vanity Fair’s new article. Included are several wonderful behind the scenes photos from the production of the new film. I am loving Keri Russell and Richard E. Grant’s costumes. The lack of R2 and familiar aliens is rather conspicuous, though. Click through for more photos and let us know what your thoughts are in the comments!

As all of you are aware, Avengers Endgame is opening this weekend. And the movie already had a record breaking $156 million Friday in North America. And while it’s not really that important, I do wonder if Endgame might actually beat The Force Awakens and become the new number 1 movie in the all time domestic box office charts (unadjusted for inflation). Infinity Way also had a better opening weekend than The Force Awakens but eventually ended up making only about 2/3 of The Force Awakens’ box office. So, what do you think? Will Endgame beat The Force Awakens? And… do you think The Rise of Skywalker has any chance at all to beat Endgame and become the number 1 box office hit of 2019? It will be difficult to top Endgame’s opening weekend, that much is certain!

Fandango interviewed JJ Abrams at SWCC and he talked a bit about The Force Awakens, and adresses the criticism that the movie was too similar to A New Hope. According to Abrams they didn’t set out to copy any one Star Wars movie on purpose. Then he goes on and talks about what it meant to write the script for The Rise of Skywalker and how they (meaning JJ Abrams and Chris Terio) very much wanted to make sure that they are not inadvertently influenced by one thing for Episode IX. According to Abrams it was not about “let’s choose that one and make a riff on that”, which is a concern that was voiced by many fans. But still, according to Abrams The Rise of Skywalker is the culmination of Episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 and it was their job to figure out how exactly it accomplishes that. You can watch the entire (quite short) interview on Fandango’s Twitter page or by clicking on the image below!

JJ Abrams Consulted With George Lucas For Episode IX

Now that’s a very interesting tidbit which was revealed following the Episode IX panel at SWCC earlier today. JJ Abrams actually consulted with George Lucas for Episode IX and the return of Emperor Palpatine! Does it mean that some of George’s ideas made it into Episode IX? Or was JJ merely asking for some insight into the character of Palpatine? Either way it’s good to see that George’s input is still valuable, no matter how minor (the wardrobe scene in Solo) or major (Palpatine’s return) it may be. JJ certainly knows that the franchise owes everything to George Lucas and for him to have some input on the very last Skywalker movie is only appropriate, I think.

First Look At Rose Tico in Episode IX

A still image (or production photo) of Rose and Rey in Star Wars Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker was revealed earlier today. So without any further delay, here’s the photo:

Rose and Rey in Episode IXAnd while I think that Rose looks a lot better than in her TLJ outfit, very official and all business, I can still only hope we will not get an action figure of her in that outfit, since it follows the more or less boring design language of Resistance costumes. The shirt appears to have the exact same design as Poe’s. So that means she probably also wears pants with a similar design and color: brown. I really, really hope Star Wars will eventually move beyond the current tan, beige, brown, grey, white and black color scheme. My toy shelf needs some more color!
