The Rise of Skywalker wasn’t as grotesque as we’d initially imagined, however it could appear that Lucasfilm needs to repair this in future Star Wars films by killing off two of the principle characters from the Sequel Trilogy.
The final movie within the Skywalker Saga, whereas stuffed with motion and spectacle, was usually consequence-free when it got here to plot developments. Rey unintentionally causes the dying of Chewie, which in hindsight served as a strong character instrument, however the gang rapidly discovers that he’s okay. Threepio, because the dwelling reminiscence of the whole collection, will get his reminiscences wiped, however then Artoo uploads a backup and restores them. Rey kills Kylo Ren with hatred and anger, however proceeds to heal him utilizing her Drive powers. (Which, I assume, is a factor now in Star Wars? It might’ve been actually useful if Obi-Wan knew tips on how to use the Drive to avoid wasting Qui-Gon.)
After all, we may go on and record a number of different situations the place the film received away with hoodwinking followers, however you get the gist. Moreover, nearly the entire new characters launched within the Sequel Trilogy survived the final battle, however evidently Lucasfilm seems to be to alter that in future Star Wars tasks.
Based on sources near We Received This Coated – the identical ones who informed us about Palpatine and Rey’s connection in The Rise of Skywalker, that Hux could be revealed as a traitor and Ahsoka Tano will present up in The Mandalorian season 2, all of which turned out to be true – Rey and Finn’s story arcs will finish with them dying. Actual particulars on how it will go down are nonetheless unclear, and we nonetheless don’t even know if the 2 will seem collectively in future tasks, nevertheless it’s doubtless that we’ll see them die on the finish of their respective Star Wars journeys, very like their mentors within the Sequel Trilogy.
After all, plans can all the time change as they so typically do, however as of proper now, not less than, each Rey and Finn are set to be killed off sooner or later within the franchise’s future. Although with each of them reportedly lined up for extra appearances in that galaxy far, distant earlier than then, followers can take consolation in the truth that it in all probability received’t occur for some time but.
