    Never doubt! For as awful as ATOC is it doesnt have a prank phone call in it and it doesnt have some slow moving OJ chase where the only people dumber than the bad guys (why lightspeed ahead of the "rebels" and stop them from reaching their goal we can just slowly chase them hoping they run out of gas...and yeah that is legit their plan) are the "rebels" whose whole plan is to have all of their forces together in one spot going to one planet being chased by a fleet. They pin all their hopes on finding a codebreaker on a casino planet (who they dont get to join) who is replaced by a criminal who, shock of shocks, double crosses them, and then their idiot leader who never tells anyone the plan decides to destroy one of their big ships by hyperspeeding into the enemy ship to destroy it...something which makes no sense based on what has happened in previous films. Now the "rebels" are trapped and the bad guys are set to destroy them but they are duped by one of the worst deceptions of all time. (so one guy gets blasted by dozens of blaster bolts without a scratch and you all dont think he might not actully BE THERE?!?) All of that is in TLJ

    AOTC sucks for a dozen reasons all of which are legit but at least it makes sense in the course of the story. (they just neglect to tell it all so we can see Yoda fight Dooku for no reason and we can see Anakin and Padme run around in a Julia Roberts film for half an hour) The Jedi are being played and the Republic is being destroyed from within due to laziness and arrogance. So far everyone in these films, good or bad is so dumb I kind of wish the big bang would come and destroy the Galaxy

    Knights of Ren prominent role, a new threat and villain that will split the fight between first order and resistance and a new concept or place called “the beyond”. Those are the plot elements being talked up recently. Sounds like a lot of Light and Dark side backstory will be divulged.

    I don’t know if Abrams has it in him to fix the sequels, tie them to the prequels AND wrap skywalker’s story. Sounds like he has Coppola/Kubrick sized ambitions which...I don’t Know
