Did You Know?


When Daisy Ridley was later asked if she loved the Porgs from this film or "Baby Yoda" from The Mandalorian (2019), she responded that she loved Baby Yoda. One of the reasons was that, because during the many interviews she made for this film, she was frequently asked about the Porgs, until she grew tired of it. See more »


SPOILER: Finn and Rose crash right in front of the battering ram cannon, which is shown to be heavily guarded. The enemy forces are under a "no prisoners" order. How were the heroes able to traverse the great distance back the mine's entrance without being attacked? Because Kylo Ren issued an order to have all guns fire on Luke Skywalker, therefore the enemy's attention was divided. Furthermore, it is shown that there is a trench they could take refuge in, which other soldiers are shown using.


Finn and Rose crash directly in front of the First Order troops and well before Luke shows up. Also the trench that they could have, but didn't, gone to was much closer to the Resistance base than it was to the First Order troops. They would have still had to cross a large amount of open ground before reaching safety. See more »

Lieutenant Connix: Forget the munitions, there's no time. Just get everyone on the transports.
[Star Destroyers appear]
Lieutenant Connix: Oh, no.

Someone at Disney really hates Star Wars
16 December 2017 | by Kevin-42See all my reviews

I have no explanation for this piece of junk other than that someone at Disney really hates Star Wars for being bigger than Mickey Mouse. This is not a movie. This is a planed assassination of the Star Wars myth, lore and legend.
