    A huge ground battlescene where suddenly Chirrut - totally uninvolved - walks from the left to the right across the scene saying:
    "I'm one with the force, the force is with me ... I'm one with the force, the force is with me ... I'm one with the force, the force is with me ... I'm one with the force, the force is with me ... I'm one with the force, the force is with me ... I'm one with the force, the force is with me ... I'm one with the force, the force is with me ... I'm one with the force, the force is with me ... "
    ...finally walking out of the scene with no further influence to the story.

    (I'm taking this as a "What would get you walking back to the theater again and again and assuage your doubts about buying a ticket for opening night?" kind of question, since the only reason I wouldn't see it would be Reylo.)

    People walking out of the theater and making reviews and articles along the lines of "John Boyega as Finn really gets to shine here, dominating his scenes and grappling with a magnificently well-written and key part of the plot, showing that potential we saw in TFA fully realized for the character."

    Or/Plus "There's no disputing who's story this is: Daisy Ridley's Rey is front and center for the whole movie, diving into the main battle between the First Order and the Galaxy at large while her range as an actress is exploited through a cunningly well written internal struggle."

    Or/Plus "Adam Driver's Kylo Ren is written perfectly for his role as the complicated but intimidating bad guy. While the film avoids having him take over the story, his motivations, victimization by Andy Serkis's dead character Snoke, and smartly conceived final fate all complete a picture of a compelling villain worthy of his two co-stars."

    ...

    ...Alternatively, and on a more specific plot point focus:

    FinnRey (which I think is still quite possible and the best option for romance in the ST) and, though much less likely... Rey Skywalker.

    I don't see me there on opening night, so I'll get to hear spoilers about the content and if there's a legitimate return of Force users, light and ark side (KOR). If the footage used of Leia turns out to be well put together, and respects her importance to SW as well as gives her story a great ending. Basically if I feel like I'm not going to be leaving the theater feeling like I did when I left the theater after seeing TLJ, I'll be glad to walk INTO the theater again.

    I'll be there regardless...

    ...but Luke having more than a cameo (bare minimum 15 minutes screen time, plus some more flashback scenes of him young and awesome), FinnRey, and the complete and utter defeat of Kylo Ren would make it awesome. :cool:

    And a happy ending....I need my happy ending! [face_praying]

    @Ridley Solo

    You and The Wacko Kid both are hoping for a happy ending. :)

    And to me the question what will make me go see it on Preview Thursday since I will regardless (seeing Star Wars movies on opening day/weekend as been a tradition of mine since I was five years old with ROTJ, not stopping now) but will make me go back for a second viewing. Because I saw TFA three times in the theater (though it was only really two in my mind since I didn't pay the third time and honestly was getting bored after awhile since it was my third time seeing it within two weeks) and Rogue One I saw twice but TLJ and Solo I once saw once. Therefore Episode IX will need to be IMHO of a higher quality to go see it more then once. Is there anything specific I need to see? Not really. Just have a better quality then their last two movies though to be fair, I did actually enjoy Solo. Just not enough to go see twice in the theater.
