Fine, I admit it. I’m biased by the way Disney has taken something wonderful from my childhood and turned it into a shell of its former self. They took story of hope and righteousness and spun it into a feminist propaganda machine. And even with J.J. Abrams back to try to reverse the damage Rian Johnson did with The Last Jedi, I do not have high hopes for The Rise of Skywalker.
The first trailer did nothing to abate my concerns.
But one thing is clear. It won’t be the biggest release this year for Disney. It won’t even be the second biggest release. Avengers: Endgame and The Lion King will battle it out for the top spot while Episode IX will come in a distant third.
Here’s the trailer. I may watch it if reviews are spectacular. If not, I’ll wait for streaming.
