Yeah that is because to access Galaxy's Edge until June 23rd you need to make a free reservation (at this time they are no longer giving any new reservations for Galaxy's Edge unless you stay at one of their hotels).

Disney is limiting how many people can actually visit the new area.

I think we will see massive crowds once June 24th hits.

I though they were just trying to keep crowds at capacity. And not that crowds will necessarily get bigger afterwards?

So time for a wacky Captain Theory, mainly for fun. But I was thinking about this today after I got home from a Quarterback practice and a New Hope was on.


Is Rey . . .

I still think the desire to have Rey be somebody in the wider context of the Star Wars story is a fruitless search doomed to disappointment. I think it is not only OK, but good for the story if there are characters that can join the action who were not involved in the personal drama of our main characters, but still effected by the galactic events. It lets the audience feel that the universe is bigger.

All of that said, I enjoyed this theory, especially for the question of Snoke. Unifies the narrative around him better, and draws another link between the events of the throne room in RoTJ & TLJ. If this theory was right, I would hope it was simply that Reys parents were killed trying to rob this facility or something.

I also think this is pretty solid. I understand that not everything needs to be totally tied together, but TLJ went too far the other way and just seemed weirdly disjointed from the other films. We know the emperor is making some kind of appearance, and I really don't like the idea of him just simply surviving the events of the ROTJ.

How do you think it would end?

Apparently Daisy Ridley confirmed that she would not be in either of the new Star Wars trilogies.

Maybe this means that something will happen to her in the Rise of Skywalker.

On a different note, I went to Disneyland last week, and we went on the Hyperspace Mountain. It has been completely renovated and is now Star Wars themed.
The coaster has speakers on each seat and is largely narrated by Admiral Ackbar.
I think it's kind of a cool send off for him, at least compared to episode 8.

I believe it has been widely reported that the new movies will explore a different time period of the Star Wars universe. Possibly going as far back as the origins of the Jedi order itself.

Yeah, I'd heard old republic as well, which would be awesome, because there are so many era's canon and non canon that could be told


Early Era pre republic - The Jedi split for the first time as some of the Jedi start studying the darker aspects of the Force and are expelled from the Jedi Order. This leads to a great war where the Dark Side users basically create huge monsters to destroy the Jedi.


Early Era of the Republic - The Jedi fight more dark side users who have broken off. The Sith are eventually banished to the outer rim and forgotten about and they create a Sith Empire.



Early Era of the Republic - The Great Hyperspace War. The Sith find their way back to the republic and wage War, the jedi eventually win, and then decide to commit genocide and exterminate the Sith. This cause the Sith to flee and creates the concept of why the Sith want revenge on the Jedi.



The Bane Era - Another schism between the Jedi (Common theme as the dark side and light side seem to feed on conflict) This leads to Darth Bane betraying the Sith who he see's as corrupt, he wipes out the Sith Army and goes into hiding and founds the rule of two. I still think a Darth Bane movie would be awesome.


Pre Galactic Civil War - Palpatine murders his family and is trained by Plageius they begin the final execution of Darth Bane's grand Plan to exterminate the Jedi and create the reborn Sith Empire.

Pretty lazy design IMO....they just combined the stormtroopers with the imperial guard armour.

If they were planning on outright using the term "Sith" again, it would have been nice to have some kind of link created between the New Order and the Sith in TLJ....oh wait...they weren't planning anything, they just let two random writers write totally different stories.

Personally I really don't like the idea of the Sith coming back at all.


Spoiler!



Second of all, bringing back the Sith or Palpatine spits in the ending of the Anakin sacrifice and all of Luke's life and quest.



The Sith died out when Palpatine went down the shaft and Vader died. Thousands of years of the Bannite Sith line and all of the knowledge and power acquired was gone, there was no successor to the line. Snoke wasn't a Sith, he was just a dark side user with a streak of stupidity. Ren isn't a Sith.


This just feels like panic after the lashback from the last movie.
