I kind of like both the spaceberg cold storage and the horseback (which is no doubt a call back to the Ewoks and Wookies versus overwhelming tech forces theme).  I'm a little perplexed that this new trilogy has had almost no actual, you know, star wars.  All of the battles - with the exception of the opening of The Last Jedi - have been ground level, even with ships.  It's odd.

Let me just say that if they do bring back Palpatine, that I think it is total folly. It would alter the overarching focus so that Palpatine is the ongoing big bad forever and ever Amen. While I'm sure Disney would love to bring back both Vader and Palpatine from a monetary perspective, it would be a bit of a betrayal storywise, in my opinion.

How they brought Palpatine back in Dark Empire I thought was genius even some of the stuff hinted at in Timothy Zahn's original novels way back when but where the movies went I just see the cash grab and lack of imagination. Palpatine, Darth Maul and I wouldn't be surprised if Vader returned so all three can be featured somehow.  

If you told me 25 years ago I wouldn't care about the next what 12 odd Star Wars movies I would have fought you

Maul is way dead by this time - Kenobi killed him in Rebels (set after Solo)

Agreed. But I donít see him coming back post Rebels. Any new stories featuring him I see being placed between Solo & Rebels.
