Really loved that teaser, but I have to admit, the prospect of Sidious uttering lines that are written by the guy behind Steppenwolf and Luthorberg, terrifies me.£

My prediction:
Rey is a Skywalker, but as Anakin, she has no father. She is daughter of Leia, step-sister of Kylo. She is the one that could defeat Palpatine, as Anakin should have, but couldn't.
Only hiccup is how are they going to explain that Leia cheated on Han. I think she might be the daughter of Luke after all but of Keri's character who noped Luke and had Rey or something. That makes more sense to me.
I said that Rey could be like Anakin, without a father. So, under the same circumstances she would be the chosen one to defeat The Emperor, the dark side, or so.

For me, the "Rise" of Skywalker is referring to the lineage, the blood kinship, conquering evil.

That would make sense if they want to finish this story and continue with something else.

And I think that she's not the daughter of Luke because that should have been reveled already.

Thanks, I hate it. I love the fact TLJ clearly said Rey is the daughter of nobodies, that being force-sensitive is a relatively common thing.

Tbh the only way this can go down is Rey and Kylo defeating Palpatine together, thus redeeming Kylo or something like that.

I have some hope, Terrio didn't write the script alone.

Do you think it looks significantly better than TFA or Last Jedi? I didn’t get that vibe.

Not gonna lie, as much as I’m skeptical... I love Ian as Palpatine so much, will be exciting to see him play the role again.

Well Rian opted that it doesn't matter who Rey's parents are. Hell, the last scene of the film showed that anyone can rise to greatness.

It honestly seems in the mode of Fordian David Lean sweep of TFAs first act and it is everything I wanted.

Busy camera J.J. (into darkness and some of trek) is not the best J.J.

I'd rather have had this boy return than Palpatine. I've been waiting for McDiarmid to come back for so long, the guy almost carried the prequels on his shoulders with his performance. But I'd rather have seen him return in Rogue one.
