Also, it was a HOLIDAY special. Not a “Christmas” special.
SO if you haven’t heard because… I dunno, your only internet is DickHarden (and if so, your old buddy Jasun thanks you)… the “teaser trailer” for the new Star Wars movie is out… now… it’s not much of a teaser. It’s really just a 90-second video montage that essentially just shows us moving pictures of the people that we knew were in the movie anyway… virtually no dialogue or real idea of what the movie is about. The only solid info that we have is that the movie takes place a substantial amount of time after the events of the successful but maligned The Last Jedi. The only other hint of what it may be about comes with the cryptic title “The Rise of Skywalker” and the disembodied laugh that was unmistakably from Emperor Palpatine (who, we assumed, died on the second Death Star so he’s either appearing as a Force Ghost or he didn’t really die).
But as a die-hard Star Wars fan, I’ll of course go see this… and was wearing my X-Wing Fighter onesie, drinking from my Death Star rocks glass and holding my light saber because… that’s how I roll.
