James Arnold Taylor, who has voiced Obi-wan Kenobi in multiple cartoons and video games (such as Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008)), had originally recorded all the dialogue for Obi-wan Kenobi, featured in this film. However, at the end of post-production, J.J. Abrams decided to bring in Ewan McGregor, who played Obi-wan in Episodes I-III, to deliver the lines in the finished film. Some fans speculate the voice was Darth Sidious imitating voices in Rey's head, just like Darth Sidious imitates voices in Kylo Ren's head the first time he meets him in Episode IX: Rise of Skywalker.

When Finn looks up at the sky while on Takodana, he observes the real time use of the First Order's Starkiller weapon, which is being used against a number of Republic Planets. Han also looks up and sees the planets' outlines in the sky. Given that this weapon was being fired from a different star system (with the star of that system providing the power), there is no way for Finn or Han to be able to observe light from the weapon in real time, as the light source would be many light years away. Also, they are supposedly in a different star system to that of the republic planets that were the target of the weapon, therefore there should have been nothing for our protagonists to see at all.

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.
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.
Well, she certainly is that.

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 »
The acting is not right in this. The story is so contrived that my suspension of disbelief never got a centimeter off the ground. And neither did the so-called plot, which is cloned (as usual with this director). The acting wasn't bad, it was comically terrible. They were just poorly cast.
