Three decades after the Empire's defeat, a new threat arises in the militant First Order. Stormtrooper defector Finn and the scavenger Rey are caught up in the Resistance's search for the missing Luke Skywalker.
Three years into the Clone Wars, the Jedi rescue Palpatine from Count Dooku. As Obi-wan pursues a new threat, Anakin acts as a double agent between the Jedi Council and Palpatine and is lured into a sinister plan to rule the galaxy.
Luke Skywalker joins forces with a Jedi Knight, a cocky pilot, a Wookiee and two droids to save the galaxy from the Empire's world-destroying battle station, while also attempting to rescue Princess Leia from the evil Darth Vader.
After a daring mission to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt, the rebels dispatch to Endor to destroy a more powerful Death Star. Meanwhile, Luke struggles to help Vader back from the dark side without falling into the Emperor's trap.
Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé Amidala, while Obi-wan Kenobi investigates an assassination attempt on the Senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.
Jedi Master in hiding Luke Skywalker unwillingly attempts to guide young hopeful Rey in the ways of the force, while Leia, former princess turned general, attempts to lead what is left of the Resistance away from the ruthless tyrannical grip of the First Order.Written by
Features the first Star Wars soundtrack to incorporate songs from outside the Star Wars universe: "Aquarela do Brasil," better known in English as "Brazil," by Ary Barroso, and "The Long Goodbye," by John Williams and Johnny Mercer. "The Long Goodbye" was the title song from the Robert Altman film, which was written by Leigh Brackett, who wrote the original draft of the screenplay for Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980). (In the first Star Wars film, George Lucas used "In The Mood" by Glenn Miller as a temporary track during the Mos Eisley Cantina scene, which John Williams reworked to the familiar "Cantina Band" theme.)

The rebels cannot jump to light speed because the First Order can track them, but the the First Order cannot catch up to them, they can only keep pace. But, it would be a simple matter for the First Order to have a couple ships go to light speed a short distance and immediately return just ahead of the rebels. The First Order could easily and quickly destroy the Rebels with this simple tactic. The resistance would have been trapped in a flanking attack and overpowered by the First Order. See more »
I feel America is finished. Really. The person who greenlighted this, the system that produced this, the studio that farted this, the so-called director that 'directed' this and most of all all the suck-up paid for and bought critics.
What was this??
It violates everything we know about Star Wars as far as creativity, Jedi rules, behavior of the characters and give me a break on the complete joke of the acting. What was that?
Man, they talk about America's Trump Slump at the Olympics, I feel there is an American slump in the movies. There is a Marvel movie a week, there is all these terrible Star Wars (the one by JJ Abrams was as bad) and they all blow.
I am declaring that I am done with American films, reviewers, Disney and Star Wars (no I love the real Star Wars, this crap is not Star Wars).
All involved should go hide in a hole somewhere.
