In 2019, the latest installment in the Star Wars franchise was released. This movie marked the end of the Skywalker Saga that began with the original Star Wars film in 1977. The movie was titled “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” and it was directed by J.J. Abrams.
The movie follows the journey of Rey, Finn, and Poe as they fight against Kylo Ren and the First Order. The story begins with Kylo Ren searching for a mysterious object that will give him ultimate power. Meanwhile, Rey is continuing her Jedi training under General Leia Organa’s guidance.
Through a series of events, Rey and her friends discover that Emperor Palpatine has returned from the dead and is planning to destroy all those who oppose him. The group must band together to stop him and save the galaxy once again.
The cast of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” includes many familiar faces from previous Star Wars movies such as Carrie Fisher (as General Leia Organa), Mark Hamill (as Luke Skywalker), and Billy Dee Williams (as Lando Calrissian). Newcomers to the franchise include Keri Russell (as Zorii Bliss) and Richard E. Grant (as Allegiant General Pryde).
The movie received mixed reviews from both fans and critics alike. Some praised it for its action-packed scenes, while others criticized it for its lackluster plot development. Despite this, it still managed to gross over $1 billion worldwide at the box office.
