I was thinking a bit closer to Palpatine/Sidius, but yes Mark's Joker laugh did come to mind.

Decent first appetizer, but mediocre title and the implication they are doing one of the more foolish parts from the old EU...

It is not getting me as excited as I was expecting and I actually loved everything Star Wars I have seen so far.

It would stop as soon as the handle hits the ground, so no.

Considering there is Cortosis that short circuits lightsabers temporarily, is a lightsaber resistant material really that weird?

It looked to me like he was kind of punching him and stabbing him with the short little side blade, not the slicing with the long blade.

It looked more to me like Kylo had it wielded and activated, sure, but he was only knocking the wind out of the one dude with his arm. Like the trope where people are just thrown around rather than actually attacked, because "plot" and "quasi-intimidation."

I don't have faith that this will be able to undo the mess that Episode 8 created. This feels very disconnected.

Also, "we've passed on all we know"? When? When did this happen?

In the side story movie they make a decade from now that goes between episode 8 and 9.

The Last Jedi: The Jedi are done, and also as a reminder that the Skywalker line is a unique anomaly among the Jedi, and that anyone can have Force powers.

The Rise of Skywalker: Just kidding, there are definitely more Jedi, and the Skywalkers will continue on. Also, the Skywalkers are only now rising. The last 30 years of in-story lore don't count.

It's actually only now that I'm feeling how jarring "The Rise of Skywalker" title is.

He's stabbing him with the crossguard.

It's also worth remembering that the crossguard pieces aren't technically lightsaber blades, as much as they're heat-vents because Kylo is shitty at making lightsabers, and his was broken.

So he's essentially taking a blowtorch to the guy's chest.

But since the flame is red and not blue or white, it's not actually as hot as the average blowtorch we're used to.

The handle is wider than the blade, so no.

Sabers dont cut through everything with ease. In Star Wars episode 1 it took a while for obi and jinn to get through the blast doors with their sabers in the beginning of the movie. I dont even remember if they ever got through doors.

Skywalker will be the name that replaces Jedi. It'll be a new fundamental way of using the Force that won't fall into the same hubris that ruined the Old Jedi Order.

I think we might see Rey adopt the Skywalker surname, as she doesn't have her own.

I think it's a misdirection to assume it will be taken literally.

Honestly, the trailer just looks confusing. Like, other than the characters, it seems like they totally disregard everything that happened in Last Jedi and Force Awakens.

With how much of a mess Last Jedi was, and how mediocre Solo was, I'm not hopeful for this.

Traditionally Star Wars movies aren't directly connected to their prequels aside from the characters, with Last Jedi being the notable exception to the rule. This seems like a return to that trend.

Hes not wrong, theres usually several years that pass between films even set in the same trilogy

TLJ was unique that it took place immediately after the events of TFA

Indeed. Most of the time, the preamble tells a small story that fills in the time gap, rather than jumping directly from one movie to the next. There are usually overarching plot lines, certainly, but not generally stories that immediately follow each other. TLJ was an exception to that trend (one could maybe argue that Episode IV also qualifies now that Rogue One exists, but that's very different).
