Default [Spoilers?] Star Wars Episode IX cast announced

I couldn't find the original topic for the new Star Wars films in general. Some might find this spoilery so read further at your own risk.

They are going to re-use footage of Carrie Fisher. Also, Billy Dee Williams will be reprising his role as Lando! WOOT! With JJ Abrams coming back, I have much higher hopes for this than Last Jedi. Though I think the writing is going to play as big a role as the directing since they're going to have to carefully connect with the events from the last two (which basically took place over a few days) without just being a "few days later" continuation.

Hopefully this will somewhat redeem the new trilogy, but I seriously doubt it. The Force Awakens was a complete meh since it was just a reboot of IV and V. The Last Jedi was absolutely terrible as I was on the brink of running up and raging at the screen at the theaters (not to mention the subtle political propaganda, which made me root for the First Order). The only movie I personally found worth seeing was Rogue One of the anthology series, which I also had a few issues with but overall was great.

George Lucas is also reportedly chipping in on the film in some regard, although what exactly that is has not been made clear yet.

But the fact that they're reusing older footage of Carrie Fisher is actually heartening for me because it blows some of the rumored plot completely out of the water. Said plot, btw, was... well, I think it'd completely and permanently sink the franchise.

I can't wait to see how they make Lando into a miserable failure who dies.

I liked TFA, would have been better if JJ had fleshed out a more original script, but at least he can't remake IX into another ROTJ, because Rian Johnson kind of already did that with TLJ.

TLJ though... yea.

Also can't wait to see how Finn's character development once again gets quashed by portraying him as a buffoon who goes on pointless missions and accomplishes nothing.

Not very excited.
Using deleted footage of Leia reminds me of Bruce Lee's Game of Death....
