I mean we already had The Hobbit Trilogy which performs a ...

... shall we say ...

... Very similar role?

Re: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Final Trailer Released
At first I thought that rather than Gandalf was Frodo the Luke equivalent but then again considering how superficial JJ Abrams is he probably wouldn't get it so this is probably plausible and eerily so.

I think Merry or Pippin are better Luke-analogs, so I would expect a JJA-LOTR to revolve around either or both of them. Like, surely, some fun-loving, adventurous rascals rising to high office and acclaim in Gondor and Rohan is a far more accessible and heroic story than that weird "officer of noble birth and loyal manservant go on a waste disposal trip to the Andes" thing that Frodo and Sam have got going on....

I contend that by musing about this subject, we are conjuring up some sort of metaphysical-potential-reality-garbage, where an abomination such as a new JJ Abrams LotR Trilogy may yet exist...

...For the love of all that is good and holy, please stop.

Remember when people compared TLJ to Empire and insisted that ROS would make TLJ good in the same way ROTJ made Empire good? Cause I do.

I defended TLJ and I would never say anything like that knowing who was in charge of TRoS.

My love for TLJ is well-documented, and I immediately lost interest in Star Wars 9 when JJ Abrams was announced as being in charge.

I remember when star wars was good. But that was 20+ years ago.

I posted this on the Rancor Pit, but as per this discussion of Ep 9, I decided to repost it here:

Quote from: Su-tehp
Quote from: CRMcNeill
Episode VII: Plagiarize the Past
Episode VIII: Let the Past Die
Episode IX: Why Not Both?

Yeah, that's the best sum-up of the Sequel Trilogy I've seen so far.

My personal sum up is kinda like this:

Episode VII: It wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't so much like ANH.
Episode VIII: It wouldn't have been so bad if they didn't kill off Luke.
Episode IX: It wouldn't have been so bad if it weren't for those 2 dozen plot holes.

Once I heard that J.J. Abrams, who has never really impressed me with his storytelling abilities, was doing Ep 9, I hoped against hope that he would be able to pull off an Ass Pull that would at least make the ending of the Skywalker Saga not suck.

And he actually succeeded (for once). After all, Ep 9 didn't suck (much), but it wasn't nearly as awesome as it should have been. :blah: :blah: :blah: :doubt:

I'm gonna make a sign that says "The villian's motivations are not the message of the film" and stake it into the heart of everyone who says this.

But the villains are the only ones who internet chuds know how to identify with anymore.

Amazing, every word of what you just said... was wrong.
