Trivia

In May 2018, Billy Dee Williams began sharing videos on social media of his new workout regimen. This was widely taken as a sign that he would appear in this movie, since Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher had started similar workouts prior to shooting Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015). In July 2018, it was confirmed that Williams would indeed be returning as Lando Calrissian. See more »

Goofs

Continuity mistake with the rest of the saga present in all three sequels: the button igniting Luke's (formerly Anakin's) blue lightsaber is shown to be near the top of the hilt. In both the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy the button was in a different place, closer to the mid part of the hilt. See more »

Emperor Palpatine: My boy, I made Snoke. I have been every voice...
Snoke: ..you have ever heard..
Darth Vader: ...inside your head.
Emperor Palpatine: The First Order was just the beginning. I will give you so much more.
Kylo Ren: You'll die first.
Emperor Palpatine: I've died before. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be... unnatural.
Kylo Ren: What could you give me?

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.
