Preview, “Star Wars: Episode IX” wraps it all up

Now I don’t know if this Daisy Ridley/J.J. Abrams controlled “Star Wars” trilogy is going to solve its essential problems with story, pace, inclusive-casting that overreaches and cluttering the picture with extra characters –all to sell more toys and make more money in foreign markets — with this last, third film in the sequence.

But unlike with the final “Avengers,” this I can look forward to. I’m still capable of falling for the essence of cinema that makes every “Star Wars” movie a heartbeat-skipping moment of anticipation, at least as far as the trailers are concerned.

Our old friend Luke narrating, now an old man, and John Williams’ score welling up on the soundtrack, that takes you back, right back where you were when first encountered this universe.

Here it is, “Episode IX,” on its way this holiday season.
