Goofs

During the attack on the junkyard settlement, Finn, Rey, and BB-8 flee the planet in the Millennium Falcon, which they steal from a junkyard. Despite being in a junkyard and not having flown in years, the ship in unsecured, the ramp is open, it powers up immediately, and the gun/cannon on the bottom is charged and ready for use. Being in a junkyard, it is highly unlikely the ship would even be intact, much less immediately ready for flight. And if it were ready for flight, it wouldn't be left open and unsecured for anyone to simply walk in and fly it away, especially on a planet of scavengers. 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.

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.
