Did You Know?

Trivia

John Boyega originally played Finn in his natural English accent. But both he and J.J. Abrams felt it didn't feel right for the character. So Boyega changed to an American accent for the role. See more »

Goofs

When the rathtars begin attacking, in a shot of Han looking down the corridor, one of the Kanjiklub members is running through a doorway whilst running from the rathtar. The camera cuts to a closer shot of them running from the rathtar, and the same Kanjiklub member can be seen running through the doorway a second time. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Lor San Tekka: This will begin to make things right. I've traveled too far and seen too much to ignore the despair in the galaxy. Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force.
Poe Dameron: Well, because of you, now we have a chance. The General's been after this for a long time.
Lor San Tekka: Oh, the General? To me, she is royalty.
Poe Dameron: Well, she certainly is that.

The first "Thank You" credit (usually dedicated to benefactors of the film or to organizations or locations that gave permission for filming/technical advice/support) is dedicated to "The patient family and friends of the cast and crew." See more »

Alternate Versions

The end credits music is slightly different on the Blu-Ray version of the film - we get to hear a bit more of Rey's theme than what we heard in the theatrical version. See more »

Who hires actors and actresses like that?
25 August 2019 | by seijizyreeSee all my reviews

This is just a poor copy with a short-haired girl with a a chip on her shoulders. Star Wars is just another 'franchise' and 'property' for Disney to sell more tickets to suckers.
