I think itís likely perspective and stuff too but the DS 1 is smaller and the planets have similarities so who knows.  I didnít see anything definitively Endor but at the same time it wasnít like Yavin was visible.  Either way itís cool.  The entire thing was cool from the distant tie whine to the flip to the giggles to the sand bike things...  all cool.

The whole weekend was cool even from home.

You obviously have to suspend disbelief on either Death Star crashing to a planet/moon and not rendering the whole thing uninhabitable.  I've read a couple of fan theories calculating mass, impact, etc. that describe the result.

There were comics that described most of the debris getting pulled in to a temporary wormhole created by the exploding hyperspace engines and thus saving the planet.

Either way, its all scientific BS, but sure as heck looks cool in the trailer and I can't wait to see what its all about.

In my head, I can justify it a million ways. Knowing the pieces have to go somewhere, maybe the Alliance towed them down with multiple craft and gave them a soft "splashdown" in the ocean as the most efficient solution and to save the ecology and Ewoks. Whatever works for you.

If the Emperor is still alive and he's an incredibly powerful Sith Master, then he probably just floated it down to the planet using his force powers.  If Ghost Yoda can shoot lightning and unprotected Leia can fly through space, Ghostly Palpatine should be able to soft land a big chunk of Death Star. 

I'm more curious about why Rey is hanging out in the dessert with absolutely nothing around just waiting for a TIE to zip by.  I'm guessing its some sort of cross promotion with Uber or Lyft.

I just hope she checks his ID before she hops in.

There's a major article that is being published in the issue of Vanity Fair that hits newsstands soon.  I'm posting it here because it's unclear if it may or may not have spoiler content.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Behind-the-Scenes Video Shows the Softer Side of the Force

There are a number of images.  Official photos were taken by Annie Liebovitz.  And sure enough this got dropped on ABC during Good Morning America.

I started checking it out and quickly bailed.  It looks like there are enough spoiler that I'm going to see if I can avoid them for another 7 months  :-\
