Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Director J.J. Abrams returns to conclude the Skywalker saga! The ninth film in the main Star Wars storyline will feature the return of Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega) and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) as they try to stop the forward march of the First Order, led by General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).

The Resistance has renewed energy after the heroic last act of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) allowed the rebels to stare down the encroaching First Order. With the assistance of Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) the remaining heroes will have once last chance to restore balance and peace to the galaxy.

Goofs

  • Finn claims the second Battle of Endor was where the "last war ended". In actuality, in the canon expanded universe, the war went on for another year, culminating with the Battle of Jakku and the subsequent Imperial surrender. As Disney spearheaded their own expanded universe and undid all that had come before, it's odd they'd make this mistake. However, the Battle of Endor was effectively where the Empire was defeated by the Rebel Alliance, and the Emperor and Vader were both killed, thus closing the original trilogy. Further minor skirmishes with the remnants of the Empire in expanded universe spin-off materials don't count.

The movie had a high bar to reach, not only ending the sequel but the entire Skywalker storyline. For this fan, the movie jumped over that bar. While there are still some loose ends, that gives me hope of more movies and shows about this galaxy far, far away.

It’s frenzied, briefly infuriating, and eventually, grudgingly, satisfying, but it’s like being force-fed fandom: Your belly is filled, but there’s no pleasure in the meal.

The massive jumble of standoffs, near-misses, tense confrontations, narrow escapes and slick victories, while momentarily exciting, can lack plausible motivation and credibility. More often than not, one wonders not so much what just happened but why, and what was at stake.

The burden of wrapping up a 40-year franchise weighs heavily on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, an overstuffed chase film that barely lets up from its connect-the-dots MacGuffin-heavy plot for even a second or two.
