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.
Thor is imprisoned on the planet Sakaar, and must race against time to return to Asgard and stop Ragnarök, the destruction of his world, which is at the hands of the powerful and ruthless villain Hela.
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.
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.
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.
The first Star Wars movie without Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca. Joonas Suotamo played him in this film. He also acted as Chewbacca's body double in The Force Awakens. See more »
During the slow-mo chase, the rebels lost 2 or 3 support ships that ran out of fuel. It is established that the fuel for sub-light engines vs light-speed engines is separate. So why didn't they send all the support ships at the star destroyers at light speed to destroy them. The last person on board was going to die anyhow. Or why didn't the last capital ship head to the same planet to cover the shuttle retreat, there by lending cover to the shuttles?
Clarification: The crews of the Ninka and the medical support ship are shown being evacuated to the Raddus before they run out of fuel, leaving them empty by the time they are destroyed. Other Star Wars media has established that jumping to hyperspace through a solid object is incredibly dangerous to any object in the vicinity, including friendly ships, due to hyper-accelerated shrapnel and the complex physics of hyperspace. Because Holdo had a plan to stealthily land on the planet Crait, which she had presumably communicated to other officers, there was at the time no need to try such a potentially disastrous maneuver, Holdo only took such a risk when the threat of total annihilation was imminent.
The evacuation shuttles were already far away from the Raddus when the First Order opened fire on them, making it impossible for the Raddus - a larger, less maneuverable ship with virtually no fuel left - to have reached the shuttles before they were wiped out. See more »
Disney, You should be proud of Yourself - this blatant, mindless and disgusting flick of Yours led me to write my first IMDB review and receive 1/10 rating.
You've done the impossible: You've almost killed a very lucrative franchise, with loyal fanbase, with developed Universe, with likable characters that were shining during last 30 years.
You know, I've thought that Episodes I-II were just childish, poorly written and bad. Jar Jar Binks, silly racing scenes just for arcade games, all of that. But with Episode 8 You've showed us:
We do not care about SW legacy (despite what our PR guys are telling You). All we want is money. We will put undeveloped screenplay to production, even with plot holes at size of the Death Star.
We were unable to produce new likable characters the viewer can be linked to and accept them as a new "trinity". We will not do character development - only scream and tears on forced drama moments. Grown-ups will act as children during a school show. Damn, we will even fail with R2-D2 and C-3PO moments.
We will badly utilize beloved characters and sentence them to the very stupid deaths because we do no know, how to use them properly.
Yes, looks like "Rogue One" was exception, not the rule.
Yes, we will hint You with the main villain during Episode 7, but do not think about some backstory - You will receive none.
We will insert shirtless scene just because we can. Why not?
We will buy critics or force them to public "excellent" reviews.
Even visuals and space battles are not so enjoyable anymore. Bombers with bombs a-la World War II? Seriously? X-Wing vs Dreadnought? Sometimes enough stupidity is enough. This is exactly Your case.
You see, Disney, if even such a good guy as Mark Hamill himself being vocal about how poorly his character was handled in the movie - this is not just a bell ringing, this is a death bell obviously.
