Did You Know?

Trivia

Some fans theorized on-line that Richard E. Grant would be portraying Grand Admiral Thrawn from Star Wars Rebels (2014), given his facial resemblance to the character. Grant denied this in an interview, and Thrawn does not appear in the movie. Leaked concept art of Grant dressed in First Order attire confirmed that he plays a character called General Pryde, one of the officers of the former Empire. See more »

Goofs

Poe miraculously spots Janna and Finn clinging to the side of the enormous command ship, and starts to go rescue them, but they would not have fit in his plane even if he had gotten there. They would have jumped on his wing just like the jumped onto the Millennium Falcon. He could given them a ride to the surface or to another ship with room for passengers. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Emperor Palpatine: At last. Snoke trained you well.
Kylo Ren: I killed Snoke. I'll kill you.
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?

An Incalculably Wonderful Film
16 February 2020 | by jrjpjcrdSee all my reviews

It is amazing what madame Kennedy And JJ have done. This film is great.

Shareholders are bound to be delighted yet again and of course the EPS and Quarterly outlook are showing a noticeable uptick. The cashflow is well above Wall Street guidance and the positive outlook allows us to invest the proceedings in slightly more risky vehicles like BRICS stock and of course secondary T-Bills.

fantastic stuff. Well done, JJ, Daisy and the interchangeable other guy. Whatever his name is. Keep up the good work. See you next week at 10:00 so we discuss the launch of the new trilogy. I may be a couple of minutes late because I am on a call with China to place the orders for and forecast our toy order.
