I agree it's a weird title, but it sure rings to my ear like it has this subtext:

"Come back, die-hard fans! This is closer to what you wanted last time!"

Mark, I was thinking that about a lot of what was in the trailer. Definitely seems like attempts at course-correction.

It was Palpatine. He introduced the teaser at Celebration.

And there’s a theory floating about that the Jedi are no more. They are reborn as Skywalker.

Hmm.  They have a funny way of misspelling, "STAR WARS: MILK THAT TEET--MILK IT, I SAY!!!"

Ticket and home media sales seem to indicate not many fans went
anywhere.

Yeah Disney would be wise to course correct after the near-universal
praise and over a billion dollars of Last Jedi.

Adam, I am actually one of those fans that enjoyed "The Last Jedi." That noted, even with financially successful films, criticism can cause a change in a franchise. Case in point, as I understand it, "Man of Steel, "Batman V Superman", and even "Suicide Squad" all made money and were financial successes, yet the criticism of those films led to some changes in how "Wonder Woman", "Aquaman," and especially "Justice League" were made.

Oh, and again... I am a fan of "The Last Jedi" (with some small reservations), but it was hardly near-universally praised. I point this out very much objectively, but it's obvious the film has many detractors.

Ah, STAR WARS! How I miss the day when we could say we LOVED the original, first release movie, without qualifications and without having to jump thru hoops to make the pieces fit.

So the trailer leads me to believe that the Emperor survived or has a clone of himself (Dark Empire) prob will reveal he fathered Anakin (tying into the prequels it was hinted at but not said ) to Rey 

Rey will be revealed to be a Skywalker (Leia's daughter judging from the trailer?)  Kylo will turn back to his Jedi roots to save little sister from the Emperor .... wouldn't be surprised if Darth Maul shows up

Ghost Luke shows up for a chat w Rey  

Lando and Chewie do some space flying maybe blow some shit up 


and Ewoks I guarantee there will be Ewoks

Don't know what they "would be wise to do," but I know what it looks like
they're doing.

From the article linked to in the first post in this thread:

"Todd Fisher had stated in an interview last April that his sister would be featured in 'Star Wars: Episode IX' using unreleased footage, but Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy denied the claim and said he was 'confused.'”

Sigh.

And Khan was not the villain in "Star Trek: Into Darkness," right?

Why lie? I mean, I get not wanting to spoil anything, to keep things a secret. Still, outright lying is pathetic, and gives us no reason to believe one single thing the studio, producers, or filmmakers have to say about when acknowledging or denying a rumor.

Frankly, for having called Todd Fisher "confused," I believe Kathleen Kennedy owes him some sort of apology. Apparently, she was either confused herself, or somehow unaware of what her director had in store, or she was... well, a liar.

If she was unaware, she should have held off on commenting until she talked about it with the studio and her director. If she was confused, well... Okay, but really? If she was lying, she should be ashamed, especially when defending the lie by questioning whether someone else was "confused."

Loathe as I am to say it, "Rise of Skywalker" probably refers to Kylo Ren redeeming himself somehow. (ugh)
