    I'm still a little disappointed Lucasfilm decided not to have a crawl before Rogue One. I suspect they'll continue that policy with Solo, but what are they going to do with the new series?

    The crawl is a huge part of Star Wars and it seems like it would be essential in kicking off a new series.

    I hope not. The crawl should only be for the Skywalker Saga and only for John Williams movies.

    Rian should do something new. This comes into my mind:

    personally, i'd love to see Return of the Crawl.

    R1 and Solo not having a crawl is ok with me, i get that they're trying new things and i'm down with that. however, in the context of a trilogy or a larger story, i think the crawl can certainly be effective. it's very Star Wars too, and that's never a bad thing.

    I dont think it will, but I want it to. I actually want Rogue One and Solo to be redone to have an opening crawl. I get very excited for a Star Wars movie and the opening crawl helps focus that Ok we are starting lets get into this.

    Bring back movie title cards or at least give us a great opening credits sequence!

    I think it will have something, but I don't think it will have a classic crawl. I feel that's a Saga thing.

    I wasn't very pleased with Rogue One's opening, but I did like how they opened Solo, it worked with this movie's opening scene. Maybe they should go with whatever tone and story Rian chooses - so basically, case to case.

    It’s going to be really weird, no crawl, no Jedi, no lightsabers,.. do we even want a Star Wars film that’s gutted of everything we watch Star Wars for? It’ll be interesting to see, but if Rian is planning to make Star Wars his own? And not take into account the fans at all ( we are the ones who the moviebis made for) I just don’t get why the overhaul. I guess Rian thinks he owns Star Wars now or something.

    Solo had no crawl, no Jedi, the saber we got was really not needed and it worked quite well (at least for people who've seen it).

    Rian's trilogy will be set in GFFA, just not the part that we know of. I keep hearing people saying over and over 'that we should move from the things we know' and 'this is a huge galaxy', so it seems to me that Rian is planning to give fans exactly what they want. The last I heard about it (when he was interviewing Kasdans) was that they were trying to find 'the essence of Star Wars' if it's not backed up by familiar iconography. We'll see the results, but to me its seems like a worthy goal.

    I think it will have a crawl although it may not look the same as the saga crawl.

    I think all Star Wars movies should have a crawl. You differentiate your content by the actual content and medium.

    Stop the pointless brand fragmentation which may well be acting more of a disclaimer that some of the movies are less important more than anything else and focus on growing the franchise by getting different genre focuses, time periods, concentrating on new and different characters, mythologies, and locations, I sez.

    The crawl is a Saga thing...that's why R1 and Solo were without, as the crawl is the opening narrative of what's happened since the last film, and about what's presently going on in the Skywalker story....neither R1 and Solo are connected to that story.

    Now with THAT being said, I'll contradict myself, as RJ has a TRILOGY that has three connected parts, and very well MAY have an opening narrative of it's own design...perhaps not the "SW Crawl" that we know, but something of the sort...I think it'll happen, as this isn't going to be a singular film, but three that form the story.

    I kind of hope all series films have a crawl. It's part of what makes Star Wars unique.

    Yes.

    But I think he can make it in a different way.
    Choose another colour, another font, the direction os the crawling also can change: from the top to the bottom or from the left to.the right or vice versa. We will see.

    I'd keep it the same. Maybe do chapters instead of episodes? Actually, it doesn't have to have chapters/episodes.

    Ho!!! I really like that. Perhaps with different music IMO but great nonetheless. Was that song from one of the James Bond movies?

    I think from what we witnessed with TLJ, RJ's trilogy will have it's own vibe. I think we can definitely agree on that. That being said, I would prefer he not use the traditional opening crawl. When I see that crawl I think of sabers, jedi and sith. I wouldn't want to see a traditional opening crawl and have the movie veer way off to the left. I don't think he's really going to steer to far from the "star wars" course though but he will definitely give it his own spin and for that reason alone I opt for an original type of opening.

    I think the "crawl" with stay synonymous with the Skywalker sagas, but I could see some thing like they did with Solo. Not a crawl but some splash screens to set the stage.
