My tickets for Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker are for 12:30 tomorrow afternoon. Now that the movie is actually out it is time for me to implement a total social media blackout to avoid all spoilers, hints, speculations, and discussions.
I am serious about this. I was just listening to a podcast discussing the season two finale of Castle Rock and they mentioned that JJ Abrams (who produces the show) directed the new Star Wars and BANG, I turned it off. I really don’t want to hear anything at all. I want a clean Star Wars slate. I don’t want some asshole hater coloring my impressions of the flick. I have waited 42 years for this. Don’t screw with my fanboydom, okay? I’m super cereal.
Given that I am a total social media whore though, the chances of me staying off everything are slim to none. I will do my best.
Wish me luck, and may the Force be with you.
