Spoiler

The leaked pics show Ren with Luke's lightsaber and Kylo Ren with his mask repaired - two things that were pointedly destroyed during The Last Jedi and which were seen by many as explicit realisation of the "Let the past die" message. 

The expectation with JJ returning to the fold would be that he'd walk back a lot of Johnson's intent, given how it seemed to fly in the face of JJ's work in TFA. These leaked pics give that theory some weight. 

Or they might not! We don't know!

Spoiler

In TLJ Kylo ditches his mask, after Snoke accuses him of being a pale imitation of his grandfather. The pictures suggest that he dons the mask again.

 

Also in TLJ, Rey's blue lightsaber gets broken in the Rey and Kylo vs. Snoke's guards fight. The pictures suggest her lightsaber is back in action.

 

'Status quo reverted' refers to the fact that some people didn't like TLJ much, and hope that Episode 9 will reverse some of the decisions made by TLJ director Rian Johnson.

Ah yeah, thanks for that @Glasgowchivas @NickC.

 

I’d completely forgotten about...

Kylo smashing his mask up while having his teenage temper tantrum. I’d also forgotten about the blue lightsaber being destroyed. I thought she took it with her to fix it though. Maybe I was mistaken.

 

Does any of it mean anything really though? Is it even a spoiler? I suppose it is in the very broadest of terms, but nothing to really worry about.

Ummm, this is Star Wars we're talking about.

 

It's not life and death.... it's far more important than that.

I remember the good old days when I used to feel like that.

People don’t half over-egg how Rian Johnson left the universe. A small outnumbered plucky band of rebels resistance with a rookie Jedi in tow versus a monolithic Empire First Order with a bad bloke in a black cape in their corner. The originality of the premise is burning a hole in my face.

I love how K thinks those are the only people who don’t like TLJ. My beard is perfectly coiffed I’ll have you know.

The Last Jedi fans will be worried that JJ Abrams is going to undo all of the subversive, progressive moves that rogue genius and stinkbeard annoyer Rian Johnson made in the previous film

 

But as everyone knows, The Force Awakens was more subversive and progressive than The Last Jedi...

From what I've heard, everything on that poster pans out ( including 3PO) and seems like genuine marketing material. It's roughly time for all this stuff to start leaking out/ being revealed anyway.

I guess the PO always stood for "Pissed Off". A spin off movie in the vein of Falling Down I never knew I wanted surely is next!

the 'let the past die' message was Kylo's, not the film's.  I find that a lot of the time people don't like it (for legitimate reasons, not dickhead ones) are fixated on the messages Kylo gave out.  They think the film is all about killing the past, when it's not - that's what Kylo wanted to do, but the conclusion of the film is very pointedly about NOT killing the past - luke is NOT the last jedi and the rebellion is reborn. 

 

And they believe wholeheartedly Kylo's telling of events about what happened between him an Luke.  So many arguments 'Luke wouldn't try to kill his nephew'.  It's like they totally missed the point of the reveal of how things actually went down, in favour of believing kylo's version.

If it’s real then you’d expect it to be unveiled at Celebration in a couple of weeks. You’d have to also assume that the films name would also be revealed at the same time. That being the case why isn’t the title on the poster? I call bullshit.

It's all legit. It's been leaked by someone at a toy manufacturer most likely.

In which case I can only hope...

...C-3PO with a Bowcaster isn’t as dreadful as it looks.  It’s making me think of the silliness of the Droid Factory on Geonosis.

I've heard how it comes about as a scene, but I think the comedy in TFA was layed on too thick. I suspect this may be more of the same, given its box office.
