SPECULATION Here's my crazy idea on why purple was chosen for the logo: balance.

    It's blue.

    Just against the black backdrop it appears purplish. But it's definitely blue.

    The debate over whether there's a tinge of purple in the lettering could very well be the greatest controversy to come out of this trailer... :D:D:D

    The OP is onto something here as colors to have a symbolic meaning in these films.

    Am going to show my age here... buy way back GL once said each movie had its own color theme.
    ANH was brown
    TESB was white
    ROTJ being green

    I thought the movie was called The Rise of Yanny but apparently it's the Rise of Laurel??

    I never knew he said that but i've always associated Star Wars films with colours as well. Except for me ANH was white, ESB was dark blue and ROTJ green. Weird, as far as I was aware Rian Johnson was the only one who attempted a colour themed Star Wars, guess i was wrong. Although I don't actually see red with I think of TLJ, I think of an earthy tone, a greyish brown as I mostly picture Ach To. TFA conjures up the same colour as ESB for me as well interestingly, as at the front of my mind are scenes in the Falcon cockpit and the duel on starkiller base. I guess it's down to what scenes stick in your head the most.

    lol at this entire thread. Not only is the logo blue, it's about as blue as possible! Not a hint of purple in here at all...I've seen this on several different computers, on the TV at celebration, on my phone. It's always been blue. If it looks purple to you, maybe you should see an eye doctor.

    As far as symbolism...It's blue because it's called The Rise of SKYWALKER. It's pretty much the exact color of Anakin's lightsaber.

    EDIT - Perhaps this is the consequences of colorists tilting every Hollywood movie towards the heavily teal / orange color grading. We've been looking at teal so long, we're starting to think teal is blue! :p

    I see blue.

    The good news is we were able to get through this controversy without being overly mean or emotional that people disagreed with an others opinion lol.

    Progress haha.

    While the image is decidedly bluish, there is some red in there to reach the color used on the poster.

    For comparisons, here is the original (main color around x4868b0 in terms of hexadecimal values):

    Now here is the same with no red, only blue (x0000ff in terms of hexadecimal values:

    upload_2019-4-16_21-9-30.png

    There is a noticeable difference!
