Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019)


Carrie Fisher
Daisy Ridley
Adam Driver

Directed by J.J. Abrams

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker episode IX is a very good movie which takes place in a galaxy far far away. It is my least favorite in this final trilogy in the Skywalker saga, after Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) episode VII and Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) episode VIII .
You must remember when watching that Carrie Fisher is not alive during the making of this movie. What we see of her is a mix of CGI for environments, old footage and powerful editing to make her parts in this movie.
Her role is essential and her place as General Leia is paramount to the conclusion of the Skywalker saga. I have to applaud the work done by J. J. Abrams to make this work and the whole production is just amazing and this is a movie I look forward to seeing again. That said I can understand the way some fans felt about the way the movie plays out this Skywalker saga. The ending left many openings. But I feel this was a good swing at ending the whole Skywalker saga and begin a new look at the whole Star Wars epic space opera.

The movie has a different take from the George Lucas first take on the Star Wars story, when we had the “I am your father” moment. In this movie we have a something like, he is your grand daddy moment. Before we get to the plot which gave us the origin of Rey and the conclusion of Emperor Palpatine, both of which you will not find in the plot below, watch the movie. I must warn, the movie had a adventure gaming feel. They had to locate this to find that, that will be needed to decipher to find the location of that.

The movie starts with Kylo Ren coming to find that Emperor Palpatine is alive and has been pulling the strings all along. The information of the Emperor’s cheating death gets to the resistance and Rey sets off to find the location of the Emperor, who is said has with him a great fleet to end the resistance.
She is not alone on this journey, with her we have Rey, Poe, Finn, Chewbacca, BB-8, and C-3PO go in search of someone who Luke knew, to help them locate where the Emperor is.
And we get to see Lando get back on the fight.

While elsewhere Kylo rebuilds his helmet and is battling his demons, is getting himself ready to work with Palpatine and rule the galaxy. The movie is how Rey stops this and we see Kylo end his struggles of either staying on the dark side or becoming a Jedi. The movie made me cry when Leia died, for me it was like a final goodbye to Carrie Fisher.

In the end all I can say is that, the movie is not as bad as some are making it online. I can understand the disjointed feel the whole trilogy can feel like, I felt it too. Many did not fancy Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017), but this movie makes them look at that film in a different light.
As wonderful viewing goes, Star Wars has that, powerful acting and very inviting journey. The movie also merged what we first saw displayed in the Star Wars Series: The Mandalorian, the healing power of the force.
Great time in the movie watching this movie and I know you will have such a great time too.
