The Imperial March can be heard in-universe playing on the recruitment film at the Corellian spaceport and is in a major key to sound more uplifting. The same variation of the song was used during a parade in Star Wars Rebels (2014), season one, episode seven, "Empire Day". See more »
In relation to the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy, the appearance of Maul on Dathomiir, in this movie would place it before Episode I. That would mean that Han and Lando are around the same age as Obi-Wan, who was still just a Padawan in Episode I. This would then mean that Han was in his 60's for Episode IV: A New Hope, and in his 90's for Episode VII: The Force Awakens. See more »

The title appears on screen over the opening chase sequence. This is the first (and to date, only) time in the franchise the title has appeared on screen "during the action." See more »
Oh dear!! Never has a franchise been so abused for such a cynical cash grab. I'll give it to you straight. It wasn't teribble; but it wasn't good either. I tend to think that as the second stand alone Star Wars movie, they didn't need to deal with such an iconic character, unless the story was so compelling that it just needed to be told. And based on the evidence here, it wasn't and didn't.
The casting was clunky. Clearly aimed at luring a few more bums on seats by appealing to the fan bases of TV pop culture juggernauts Game Of Thrones and Westworld with their respective leads showing up here. I'd pay little attention to this gripe if the movie was fantastic, but it fell far short of that.
The attempts at humour are hit and miss, and whatever character development there was left me uninvested in their fates; No emotional engagement as I had in Rogue One.
All in all it was underwhelming and disappointing and as I'm well into my middle age years, I see this as purely an exercise at gaining box office dollars rather than delivering a worthy chapter in the epic Star Wars universe.
