Trivia

Released on December 20, 2019 in the USA. Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) and Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017) were released in December 2015 and 2017, respectively. The original US release date of this movie of May 24, 2019 was delayed after director Colin Trevorrow was replaced by J.J. Abrams in September 2017, facing a similar fate to the other sequel trilogy movies with their releases (being pushed from May to December). This was likely done for consistency purposes. See more »

Realization
10 May 2020 | by James-antonelliSee all my reviews

Watching this Disney film makes me notice that the titles are nonsense. Where do they get these titles from? In the first one the force does not awaken. mostly because it is inconsistent with the force. It is always there and never sleeps. In the next one we do not have a last jedi or the series would have ended. And here all Skywalkers are dead. Rey trying to fit herself is laughable of course.
