    but...this is exactly what they were: a small terrorist cell that, with Starkiller, fired their first major salvo. prior to that they went virtually unchecked and disregarded by all but Leia.

    we know Ren's goals are disorganized at best. and that he has an idea in his head of what "Order" is that doesn't mesh with Hux.
    and we also know that neither Hux nor Ren were ever completely on Snoke's program as they were both jockeying toward their own ideal.
    we don't even need the support of the EU to see that playing out on the screen.

    Again, my definition of a terroist cell is different from yours. A star system destroyer is not something I would classify as a weapon built by a terrorist group like say Saw Gerrea's partisans or Jabba the Hutt's crime syndicate. To me, the FO had already everything they needed in TFA. As for Hux, there won't be any conflict with Kylo in IX. What started out as an extremely interesting dynamic in TFA was turned into a laughing stock in TLJ. Kylo smashing Hux to the ground in the AT-M6 followed by a "Right away Sir" made it pretty clear who's in charge of the FO.

    My point is that there needs to be a red line in form of a goal or villain that's present from the beginning to the end. I seriously hope to see someone like the Knights of Ren again, revealing a plan Kylo had all along or something like this. A single moment that makes me go "oh, so that's why they did X in TFA". If JJ fails then there's still hope that RJ manages to come up with a consistent story for his new trilogy.

    as i said, it's perceptual. the FO's show of might is all smoke and mirrors at the outset.
    and Hux getting tossed is there exactly to make you underestimate him.

    personally, i see a very clear goal/plan from beginning to end, but you don't.
    so we can just agree to disgree on pretty much all of these points.

    It seems so. Can I ask you how much you would rate the movie on a scale from 1 - 10 with 10 being the best? Also the example with Hux you mentioned is exactly what I mean when I say I want payoffs in IX so if what you predict turns out to be true I couldn't be happier.

    i don't know, honestly. as a middle piece of a trilogy, a lot of what's successful will be contextually dependent on the whole for me. i'm not good with numbers.
    i do know that whatever the niggling details i didn't like about TLJ, the important things that i expected and hoped for in TLJ completely paid off, so i am confident in ix to satisfy.

    I admire your optimism even though I do not share it. Personally, I rate TLJ in 3 different categories which are standalone/function as a sequel/function as a setup for IX because I simply can't wrap my head around it otherwise. If something similar to your predictions turns out the be true it will positively influence how I see this movie moving forward but I wouldn't count on it. My hope lies on the standalone movies and the new-new trilogy.

    i guess i can understand that. when i first walked out of TLJ, i was asking myself: "what did i just watch?" (while my sister, a casual fan, was gushing about it being the "best Star Wars movie yet!" she's a big fan of TFA). but afterwards i went through my checklist of "would like to see" and "absolutely must see" and the ledger was almost all in the black--just none of it happened in the way i expected it to. and again, the things that were problematic for me are largely dismissable as aesthetic choices or just overzealousness on Johnson's part.

    given that, i am confident that i am on the boat with Lucasfilm's intention for the ST and i don't expect to be disappointed.
    narratively there's a bunch of different ways this can go, but really there can be only one final outcome.
    which is, perhaps, why i'm surprised other people had such different expectations/hopes/desires from TLJ?
    because to me it feels like everything has been pretty strongly telegraphed from the start.

    which brings us back to the time interval. the logical answer being: as long as it takes for the Rebels to get back up to speed sufficiently to make a fight of it.
    and as others have said, time enough for the characters to grow into their new leadership roles.

    Four or five years kind of makes sense just because of the actors have aged that much since TFA. That also leaves enough time for the rebellion to be reborn and in a position for the last battle. The First Order is a shadow of the Empire/New Republic in terms of power and control of the galaxy.
    Nope. I don't think it really matters.

    I belive that it could be between 4 or 6 years, I think it's enough time for the positions of the factions to solidify and emphasize a little, at least enough to tell a story
