Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker is a galactically stupid title

first_img Comments 16 Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker trailer tees… That’s a joke, right?— rick (@ricktimmerman88) April 12, 2019 And the actor jumped right in with guesses as to which member of his fictional family the title is referring to.”Is that Skywalker KYLO? LEIA? ANAKIN? LUKE?” he wrote. “A previously unknown SKYWALKER? Is REY a Skywalker?”Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (really!) opens Dec. 19 in the UK and Australia, and Dec. 20 in the US. Skywalker is the new Jedi Order. Rey starts it, maybe with Kylo.— Unite or Die #TTP (@shadowdragontwt) April 12, 2019 TV and Movies Also, doesn’t the new title just scream spoiler? In one of two ways, apparently. With Rey all over the trailer and the words THE RISE OF SKYWALKER emblazoned on the screen, are we just all admitting now that we know she’s obviously a Skywalker relation, whether Luke’s kid or not? Let’s hope that’s just too obvious. So on the other hand, is Kylo Ren, whose mother Leia was a Skywalker, the family member on the rise?Some fans liked it, with writer Kris Tapley putting it solidly in the middle of a title ranking, above the 1977 original and below The Phantom Menace. Not everyone was on board with the title.”Which Star Wars isn’t the rise of Skywalker …. he rose 10x already,” noted one Twitter user. Tapley also has thoughts about the title’s meaning, writing, “I think there’s zero chance that title refers to Rey.” No, it’s not an adult-film parody title, or a coffee table book about George Lucas’ movie ranch. Episode 9, the next Star Wars movie, is really called Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. it’s called the rise of skywalker because anakin raises from the dead to drop-kick kylo into a sun— moms against dio brando (@C0REZI) April 12, 2019 77 Photos More Rise of Skywalker 2:04 Star Wars star Mark Hamill, who played O.G. Skywalker Luke, weighed in about the new title Friday, nothing that it wasn’t his suggestion: Episode IX: A Bunch More Stuff Happens. Some fans had theories about what was rising, and who, and why.”Skywalker is the new Jedi Order. Rey starts it, maybe with Kylo,” wrote one Twitter user. Awful.

It’s time for the 8 months of speculation to begin. Is that Skywalker KYLO? LEIA? ANAKIN? LUKE? A previously unknown SKYWALKER? Is REY a Skywalker? #CoolTitle👍 https://t.co/avfffLvC1z— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) April 12, 2019 The title ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ has got everyone thinking of Rey, maybe J.J. is retconning what Rian did with Rey’s lineage. No, no, no.I think the Skywalker title is referring to Kylo. Maybe he will have a redemption arc in this story.

The Palpatine cackle at the end of the #EpisodeIX trailer is just Kylo Ren’s ringtone.— Charles Soule (@CharlesSoule) April 12, 2019 I think there’s zero chance that title refers to Rey.— Kris Tapley (@kristapley) April 12, 2019 I’m confused, I thought one of the goals of this new trilogy was to end the Skywalker saga, then again The Rise of the Dark Knight was the end of the Batman trilogy so there’s that— Pozzible Movies (@Pozzible_movies) April 12, 2019 Confused by title. pic.twitter.com/w6KI1ylrlg— 6reg (@Darthgreg78) April 12, 2019 Rise of Skywalker sees Emperor Palpatine rise again Meet new Star Wars character Jannah Share your voice Either Rey is a Skywalker or Ren is gonna rule the galaxy.— Auswald (@groovyspaceP) April 12, 2019 Some fans were more interested in a familiar laugh from the new teaser trailer. Hello, Emperor Palpatine, welcome back. Maybe the title should’ve been, “The Rise/Return/Revenge/Whatever of Palpatine.” Now playing: Watch this: 2019 movies to geek out over We finally got the title Friday morning at Star Wars Celebration Chicago, and yes, these things take time to get used to. But I can’t be the only Star Wars watcher who thinks it’s about as appealing as the Sarlacc.I’ve said it before: I was rooting for Star Wars: A New Order. That worked on every level. Short, appealing, direct and a nice throwback to the 1977 original Star Wars film, which I saw in theaters when it was just called Star Wars but was later dubbed A New Hope.

Gold prices rally in India to cross Rs30000 Sensex slumps 300 points

first_imgGold prices rallied on Friday to cross Rs. 30,000 per 10 gm after staying below the psychological mark for three days. The yellow metal gained Rs. 200 to close at Rs. 30,050 per 10 gm in Delhi bullion market even as silver shed Rs. 600 and ended at Rs. 40,500 per kg.Hardening prices have kept consumers away in India, the world’s second-biggest consumer of gold. The yellow metal had less takers this Akshay Tritiya mainly due to prices prevailing high.”This week’s demand was better than last week as consumers were making purchases for Akshaya Tritiya. Year-on-year basis demand was much lower during the festival due to higher prices,” Reuters quoted Aditya Pethe, a director at Waman Hari Pethe Jewellers, as saying on Friday.Gold demand in India saw a 39 percent decline during the quarter ended March 2016. The fall in the jewellery segment was higher at 41 percent and hit a seven-year-low, according to the World Gold Council.The fall was attributed to high prices and a long strike by gold jewellers to protest against the re-introduction of one percent excise duty.The fall in retail sales has led to a domino effect on the trade.”Jewellers have slowed down purchases. Retail demand is not picking momentum despite various promotional schemes launched by them,” Reuters quoted a Mumbai-based bullion dealer with a private bank as saying.Globally, gold prices are expected to hover in the range of $1,200 to $1,300 an ounce, according to financial news website MarketWatch.The rise in gold prices on Friday coincided with the fall in Indian stock markets due to disappointing retail inflation and factory output data released on Thursday after trading hours.The Sensex closed at 25,489, down 300 points, or 1.17 percent, from its previous close.last_img read more
