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 investigates an assassination attempt on the senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.
Close-ups of Leia's hands show longer, manicured nails, immediately followed by unmanicured, ragged, much shorter nails. (When Poe reaches out to her, and when Luke gives her the dice, among other instances.) See more »
Tried hard to like it, but I just can't unfortunately
I watched this in the theatre, convinced myself that it was a good movie. A couple of hours after the showing, I sensed there was something not quite right about the movie. Then it was released on bluray, and I gave it another chance. Same thing happens.. I got disappointed once again,. I tried to watch it with the director's opinions and responses (after the mass criticisms from fans) in my mind, but still something doesn't feel right about the movie. I read most of the reviews here on imdb, and I have to say I agree with most of the people here that rated it low, as their opinions made sense. The funny thing is that a lot of the reviewers here on imdb that rated the movie high, do not state the actual reasons why they think its good. Probably because there is no way to defend the illogical points of the movie, other than that the director tried to go a total different route of what fans expected of the storyline. When you get over your head and try to be too creative with the storyline, this is what happens..plotholes all over the place. And I believe the people who liked the movie, might have overanalyzed it and the director's vision. In reality I do not think he intended such a deep meaning with the storyline, most of it could be coincidence. And his later explanations of intended deep meanings of the storyline might just be based on what other people overanalyzed after watching the movie. I mean, if it was that good and respected storyline from the beginning, Mark Hamill wouldn't have expressed such negative opinions during the productions. You can almost see the man bursting in agony in various interviews, but obviously he cannot speak too freely for some reason. I do hope episode 9 will redeem the damages that have been done..sigh..
