    I heard and saw alot of good word about the sizzle and the poster is amazing. The rey ren scene looks similar to the post in vanity fair! I am still conflicted about palpatine but if anyone is going to temp rey bet your money on it! But rey is strong n this poster proves to probably be an epic battle to come! Unless the might grey jedi theory of rouge one will finally see light? Its def getting me excited! There is rumor that either this reel or an actual trailer will be released monday is there any truth to that out of d23?
    As a fan this is giving me hope that JJ is keeping his word and giving us an ending the fans deserve and what he would want to see bc hes a big star wars geek himself!

    I wonder if the whole rey is dark form is her flash/dreamscape aka her version of lukes forest thing in empire bc JJ had to redo it bc Rian so poorly executed the snapping rey hole thing! I mean i am a new fan and seeing force awakes and the really cool things JJ did introduce us to next gen but its still star wars was great. Rian just made his own movie and said its part 8! Bc contray to other fans it has some good story points and porgs then theres the rest of it like canto bright and moments like the rey hole thing or sorry adam fans but Rens shirtless stuff like really this is star wars not magic mike! And i am a new fan! So i can see where some fans are like its ok and some fans are like “save us JJ Abrams your star wars only hope” (well beyond your average fanfic and thats fanfic for reason people).

    Come on! That poster isn’t “stunning”, nor is it “insanely epic”…
    The first I saw it on my Facebook wall, the first thing I thought was “Eww, that’s an horrible fan-art!”, and then I realised I was looking at a post from the official Star Wars page.

    As you said, the fight between Rey and Kylo looks very reminiscent of the Mustafar duel (on that poster), and with the Emperor in the background, I sense a lack of creativity. I hope I’m wrong though.

    Seeing Rey with a double-bladed red lightsaber is kinda unexpected, but let’s not forget that it’s a Disney franchise, and in addition to that, the last episode of the saga, so we can be pretty sure she’ll get back to Anakin’s lightsaber pretty quickly.

    I don’t expect much from this movie, but what they’ve given me so far (the first teaser and the poster) are not good signs for me. I sincerely hope they’ll surprise me though! 🙂

      Reiterating what i said was it was amazing bc star wars is know for amazing posters. Is its best not really its lacking something bc like i said in my post above i seen that fight before in vanity fair! Though the fight looks like an epic light vs dark thing! Has it been done before yes but that is something! I also heard parts of the interview where this is leia story even though we lost the great carrie fisher all that gives me hope that JJ will do right by things remember bc fans keep forgetting hes a fan too! And hes also only human and we all make mistakes! Also along that line alot of fans forget they are in a minority and go overboard while other fans love everything star wars they comment but not to the pt of saying my opinion is not the same so i am not a true fan! Sorry but i am and i just have a difference of opinion and thats aloud i am sorry!
