Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
DIRECTOR JJ Abrams
CAST Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Billie Lourd, John Boyega
The surviving Resistance faces the First Order once more in the final chapter of the latest Star Wars trilogy.
The long–awaited conclusion to the newest era of Star Wars trilogies is a fitting end to the tale of Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega) and Poe (Oscar Isaac) and their Resistance comrades, as the First Order strengthens its grip on the galaxy far far away. The Force Awakens director Abrams returns to deliver this emotional finale that is sure to resonate amongst fans of all ages – most poignantly (thanks to previously unused footage) with its final appearance of General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher).
(2019 USA 142 mins)
Legacy is at the heart of the Star Wars saga, and JJ Abrams, who returns to directing duties for the final instalment, knows it. As with The Force Awakens, The Rise of Skywalker pays homage to what came before, offering a safe but satisfying conclusion to the space opera that began back in 1977 … Abrams gives it one last epic push, delivering grand setpieces, derring-do duels, and a classic tale of good versus evil that ups the ante on every previous instalment. Joseph Walsh, The Skinny
Nominated for three BAFTAs for Best Original Score, Sound and Visual Effects.
